Talk about a crossover hit: the hit AMC television series “The Walking Dead” has excelled past geekery and snuck into your Mom’s Facebook timeline, and not just because you’re talking about what a pain in the ass Carl is (just stay with the group damnit!). AMC has teamed with the software company RockYou to create a game for the social networking site
.The Walking Dead Social Game
is an action RPG where you can open up the undead like cans of tuna, providing level-ups and strategy to deepen the experience. The Beta’s available now

It ain’t easy being the only guy with a medical degree in one of the most violent towns in the Dakotas, and the tempers of guys like Al Swearengen don’t make it any easier.

the 19th Century, after all.Do Something!
Based on “Draw Something!”, but instead of starting off with a blank slate you’re given the cast of “The Killing” and have to get them to actually do something and advance the plot. For crying out loud. Please.
