The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer #1 (2018 – AMC) “Rick’s Last Ride Begins”

The Walking Dead is headed for some serious changes over the next year.  Season nine of the zombie survival drama will see a time jump from the season eight finale, and this season will be the last for Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes).  TWD has had some trouble staying as gripping as it used to be, and a lot of fans will look hard at how the show manages this transition before deciding whether or not to keep the show in their rotation.  TWD Season 9 will premiere on AMC on October 7, 2018.  More below from Comic Book Resources.

walking-dead-season9There are three months to go before The Walking Dead returns to AMC for its ninth season, but that’s not too early for the show’s cast and crew to converge at Comic-Con International in San Diego‘s Hall H for a panel highlighting what to expect when the show returns in October of this year. Alongside executive producers Angela Kang, Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Greg Nicotero, stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride and Jeffrey Dean Morgan were on hand to offer fans a few teases about Season 9. CBR is there live, so keep hitting refresh for the latest details.

The Season 9 premiere will be Sunday October 7th. The panel opened with the first look at Season 9’s trailer:

It opens with Rick visiting Negan in a makeshift dungeon — spoiler alert, they still hate each other. The time jump is confirmed by the look we get of Maggie and Glenn’s baby who’s probably about a year old. The communities are all looking far more sophisticated, developed and idyllic. We get shots of Rick and Michonne riding horses and fighting walkers and in general being #couplegoals. Rick has fully welcomed the Sanctuary into the fold and actively helps them rebuild. A team winds up exploring D.C. for an unknown reason, and one of the new communities (Toledo) appears to cause serious problems and be the new nemesis. Jadis has fully integrated into some society and looks pretty happy. There is underlying strife between Rick, Maggie and Darryl that looks very serious — not surprising considering Maggie’s promise to kill Negan when she gets the first chance.  Eugene and a partially blind Gabriel appear, as well as Carol who’s questioning her position in peacetime.

And finally, after the final title card rolled, we got a shot of two people sliding down a riverbank and covering themselves with mud to hide from a train of walkers. As the walkers pass, one of them whispers “Where… are… they?” So, you know, take that as you will.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Trailer #1 *From Comic Con 2017*

I have fallen off The Walking Dead myself with all of the other shows out there, the zombie drama that never ends has gotten stale.  That being said, there are still hordes of you who haven’t so when Comic Con drops a five-minute trailer for the show’s upcoming eighth season, far be it from me to pass it along to the Deadheads.  Without even having seen it, I’m going to bet Rick is going to be very tense and wrought about something also Negan will probably drop a naughty.  Pure speculation.  The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 22, 2017.

Dead Rising 4 – Complete Achievement List (Xbox One, PC – 2016)

Everybody’s favorite handyman/zombie slayer, Frank West, is back in Dead Rising 4.  Though it’s getting middling reviews, Dead Rising 4 still offers you the chance to kill the undead with a giant candy cane.  So…you’re going to play it.  I have never had much luck with Dead Rising games, though I am in awe of the way they have managed to combine seemingly innocuous objects in ways that prove lethal to the undead.  The teddy bear bomb from Dead Rising 3 springs to mind….at any rate, the fourth installment is out now for Xbox One and PC, and-as always-your cheevos below are courtesy of the awe-inspiring gurus at xboxachievements.com.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

Call of Duty is here with its annual installment of token campaigning  followed by multiplayer that will swallow your life.  I actually have to say that I have lost all interest in Call of Duty as it goes further and further into a science fiction future.  The pinnacle of the series, ironically, is getting a remastered packaging with CoD:IW.  When Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was released, it changed the shooter genre forever.  Yes, it had amazing multiplayer, but it also had a killer campaign and was rooted in the military of today.  This entire genre started back with Medal of Honor, and it’s been at its best when it has put players in historic/current military situations.  I’m playing Battlefield 1 right now, and it’s astoundingly good.  I’m sure CoD is well-made, but if I want a science fiction shooter, Titanfall 2 looks amazing and Gears of War 4 is the best entry in the series since the second game.  This will sell 10 million copies, and that’s great, but I really have completely lost interest in the franchise (sigh, yes, there are zombies again too). I know that a ton of people are waiting for the midnight launch, and I hope you have a blast.  Cheevos below, as always, courtesy of the good folks at xboxachievements.com.
