The Walking Dead: The Game (iOS)
Spread across five absorbing episodes, this throwback to point-and-click adventure games favors the emotional, character-driven depth of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series over the gore-soaked excess of the TV show.

iTunes reveals top-selling music, movies, TV, books, and apps of 2012


Adele had a good year — again.

Though 21‘s American release came in February of 2011, the album’s sales were strong enough to put the soul singer at the top of iTunes’s album chart for a second straight year. The electronic entertainment store also reported strong showings for 2012’s usual suspects (The Hunger Games; “Call Me Maybe”) and a few less predictable picks — well done, Sherlock and Alcatraz.

Best of 2012: What if 'Breaking Bad' were on Lifetime?

Bad decisions made with good intentions! All things we have come to expect from the great modern TV dramas…and also hallmarks of the Lifetime network.

Best of 2012: EW imagines 'Game of Thrones' as an angsty CW soap -- VIDEO
