The Walking Dead is Dead to Me

The Walking Dead

Ewwwww! The grossest thing happened to me the other day. I was playing The Walking Dead, and there was this zombie. So, I went to kill him right in his face, and I realized that I hadn’t inverted my Y-axis.

And here’s where things got super gross. THERE WASN’T AN OPTION TO INVERT THE Y-AXIS. What the lump, Telltale Games? That zombie ate the crap out of me because I couldn’t even defend myself, like some useless guy who stands with his back to a glass window and says, “Those zombies will never get in here!”

So, I did a bunch of research on the internet, and a lot of people are mad about this. Per usual, I’m late to the mad people party. And I guess my question now is, “WHYYYYYY????” I wanted to play The Walking Dead really, really bad. I downloaded the demo and saved up my nickels to buy the full game. I was all excited to finally have all the fun other people seemed to be having. And then my fun was ruined by that part of my brain that learned how to play shooters on N64 where the Y-axis is automatically inverted.

It’s unfair, man! UNFAIR I TELL YOU. It’s like they don’t even care about how my brain works.

So, here’s what I did. I put that game right back in the box and returned it and got a copy of Resident Evil 6 instead. What do you think about that, Telltale Games? Not so funny now, is it?

I’m so mad right now, I could attempt to aim for a face with a shotgun and then accidentally point my gun at the zombie’s feet instead.

  1. Been waiting for literally over a year for them to add an invert option but it looks like it will never happen. Can’t play the game because of it.
