The Walking Dead tops Xbox Live Arcade chart

Fable Heroes debuts in third, Awesomenauts in fifth.

The first episode of Telltale's recent TV/comic tie-in The Walking Dead has held on to the Xbox Live Arcade chart top spot in its second week on sale, Microsoft has announced.

Stunt bike sequel Trials Evolution is at two, while Lionhead's poorly-received franchise spin-off Fable Heroes debuted at three.

Fez is still hanging around at four, while fun side-scrolling arena battler Awesomenauts managed fifth place in its first week on sale.
