Fellow survivors, we’ve been hard at work on the latest installment of The Walking Dead here at Telltale HQ, and today we’re excited to share some news on its debut, as well as when you’ll be able to get a much closer look before its launch….

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries will premiere its first of three episodes, ‘In Too Deep,’ this February 23rd on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, followed by a release on compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store starting February 25th. The second episode in the miniseries, 'Give No Shelter,’ will follow in the month of March, and conclude with the third episode, 'What We Deserve,’ in April. All three episodes in the miniseries will be available for purchase at the cost of $14.99 USD or equivalent when the first episode debuts, including access to the second and third episodes as they become available.

In this premiere episode, 'In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries stars the iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic books, portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black). Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne’s absence between issues #126 and #139 of the comic book. Over the three episodes of the miniseries, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.

Ahead of its release, fans are invited to get an exclusive extended preview of the first episode of the series on Youtube.com/TelltaleGames this Sunday February 14th at 8:30pm EST / 5:30pm PST. The development team will introduce the series allowing fans to experience the first five minutes of the premiere episode, exploring Michonne’s struggle to remain among the living while being haunted by her past.

Michonne has always been among our favorite and most complex characters in the world of Robert Kirkman and Skybound’s comic series, which just celebrated its 150th issue this past month! You don’t need to have read the comics to enjoy the miniseries, nor do you need to have played the past two seasons of the game, but the comics are at the heart of the universe and we certainly hope you’ll be inspired by Michonne to dive into the series. (Seriously, the comics are really f-cking good! If you haven’t read them yet, what are you waiting for?)

The Telltale team has been very hard at work in the world of the undead, and while a full third season of The Walking Dead is also currently deep in development, we don’t expect to be able to share any details until after this miniseries concludes. What we can say is that we expect this to be our biggest year for The Walking Dead we’ve ever had, and we’re excited to share this decidedly very different story with Michonne that will explore some themes we’re truly excited about bringing to the interactive space. So tune into our Youtube channel this Sunday for an extended preview, and set your sights on February 23rd for the long-awaited return of The Walking Dead!

Okay guys! So, after making posts on our personal writing blogs, and getting opinions from a ton of the applicants, we’ve decided that we will be pushing acceptances back. Honestly, this seems to be in everyone’s best interest for quite a few reasons. We’ve all gotten called into work unexpectedly, and we’ve noticed a lot of people in the tags getting nervous over their time crunch, so we’re just trying to accommodate everyone here. We’re sorry to the people that have already sent in their apps, but take this time to re-submit it, or work on your mock blog!! So without further ado, the new acceptance/opening schedule will be:

CLOSING OF SUBMIT: 21ST OF FEBRUARY AT 11:59 PST
POST ACCEPTANCES: 24TH OF FEBRUARY
OPENING DAY: 25TH OF FEBRUARY

I am a college student and currently this is my last semester, but I have a a huge load of homework and I am still considered full time. It almost seemed impossible for me to make it to the gym when I want to, because my book load is heavy and I have stresses beyond stresses (which will be a different blog post). Nonetheless, I have managed to still stay fit and healthy even when I don’t make it to the gym everyday. Right now, I am taking an exercise science class (which is my major) and we have a project on the 25th of February where we have to meet someplace where the campus is busy and set up stands (each student) and talk about the challenges of being able to stay in shape, eat healthy, ect while being a college student then we will give our tips and tricks.  Now I have chosen my own topic i will discuss at my stand, but I will expose this information after the fact and will keep you posted on how things went.  

I for one, will be the first person to admit that staying fit and eating healthy while attending college is a struggle unless you are a current athlete or live at home possibly and/or just have good habits instilled in you; otherwise most of us college students are more focused on our grades and life after graduation. Which really, shouldn’t mean anything but when it comes down to it, between homework and the majority of students also work part-time and/or full-time jobs and some students even have children to raise; just don’t have time in their schedule to fit in “me time” & although those excuses may seem deemable, they are not! because guess what? there is ALWAYS a way to keep active when you least expect it.   This brings me to my next point, staying active is anything that keeps you moving & anything that keeps you moving or standing is a good thing when it comes to staying healthy. Below I will list some tips and ideas on ways us college students can continue down the road to better health and wellness as we progress through our majors. For some of you who may want to know a bit about my college life, I am going to share a tid bit so you can get to know me on my level. First off, I commute to my college campus (between 45 minutes to a hour depending on traffic and the weather), I graduate in May, my major is exercise science, I am taking 12 credit hours, I work part-time but sometimes it feels like full-time because I work long hours. I work tuesday, wednesday, friday and saturday (different times) this is just for the month of Feb.  I am also doing clinical hours/interning on Monday’s and Friday’s, I have been elected to be in the honors program but declined due to the fact I already had a huge work load and didn’t want to make things any harder on myself, I have been nominated by my professor and my Dean to be part of an activity for the school and I will receive some great rewards from that both on my transcript and letters of recommendations, certificates (it is exciting to say the least), my least favorite subject that I am taking right now is math; I suck at math.  My favorite classes are my exercise science classes for obvious reasons.  I won’t give out my whole daily routine because i don’t want any stalkers but lets just say I normally try to be at the gym Mon-Thursday.

My social life is usually on hold unless I am texting some friends, I have big plans normally on the weekends after work but I don’t really party because I don’t have tons of time to be able to.  I am single, so no relationship to manage and I have no kids so I am lucky to have a bit more “me time” lol. So that was a bit about me and my life currently, obviously boring and not much to it but at least everyone can understand that I am somewhat in the same boat when it comes to having a busy schedule.

  1. Manage your workload and “me time”- you need the me time, no matter how you can get, because it is essential that you are able to still have time to decompress so that your stress levels decrease
  2. park further from the school building, you can be that kid who wants to park the closest but you can imagine how much more exercise you can get when you park further
  3. ride your bike if you want to, if you live close enough where you can walk or ride a bicycle, why not do it, it will save you gas and you get to exercise
  4. find out if your school offers a gym and what their hours are and if you have time, use it because normally it is free for students to use
  5. part take in a school sport either NCAA, or intramural sports
  6. try packing your lunch instead of eating lunch on campus
  7. eat breakfast
  8. make leftovers so you have food that can least 3 days to a week
  9. eat a variety of fruits and veggies
  10. eat more protein than carbs
  11. bring snacks with you so you don’t have to stop someplace to buy some
  12. do some community service hours, both beneficial to you for school and gets you out more
  13. take the long route to class, don’t take short cuts, walk the longer route
  14. don’t avoid stairs (unless you have a health condition that prohibits you)
  15. take some exercise classes (yoga, kickboxing, karate, walking, weight lifting, ect) if you can fit in your schedule
  16. learn new recipes
  17. cook often instead of take out
  18. buy fresh or buy frozen veggies (caned veggies and fruits sometimes have higher sugar content and sodium and corn syrup.. ect) read the labels if you need to
  19. budget your account (be financially responsible)
  20. take your kids to places like parks, events, things that get both of you out of the house and doing something active together
  21. meet like-minded individuals who also want to start working out or currently do
  22. join clubs
  23. carry water with you to stay hydrated
  24. pack your gym clothes, it will be a good reminder of what you planned on doing for the day/ or wear them
  25. sign up for 5K runs, 10Ks and more
  26. choose restaurants that offer a good menu of items (better choice of foods like salads, green beans, ect)
  27. do workout videos at home if you don’t have time for a gym
  28. get a good nights sleep
  29. use your textbooks as weights so you can lift at home, might not weigh much but no doubt they come handy for someone who doesn’t own dumbbells
  30. wake up earlier if you need to; it might suck but sometimes I wake earlier to stretch, to have time to cook breakfast and to just get moving

So this is a large list and hopefully it will help the majority of you college students, as it has helped me. There is no excuses for why we can’t continue to stay fit and healthy, we just need to make time for it and do things that mean the same thing as going to the gym, use your surroundings.
