Microsoft is doing their annual Christmas/New Year countdown on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and they've got some pretty sweet deals going already. For those who haven't played Telltale Games' award-winning The Walking Dead, well here's your chance.
The series is currently discounted on XBLA, with the first episode free all week (we assume until Sunday), and the rest of the episodes marked down by 50% each. With the half-off discount, the episodes each go for 200 Microsoft Points, which translates to an impressive $2.50 USD. Grabbing episodes one through five will add up to 800 points, or a $10 total.
Seriously, you could do a whole lot worse. The 50% discount is supposed to be a one-day deal, while the Episode 1 freebie is week-long. Get downloading.
