The Walking whatnow?
« on: 09 Jan 2013, 18:38 »

So I rented The Walking Dead game(s) from Telltale. I thought they did a bang-up job on the few Sam & Max episodes I own, so this should be good.

Right?

I do wonder how well this will work without having watched the show or read the comic past, like, the first one or three.

You'll do fine, the game is only set in the same universe, it has nothing to do with any of the characters in the comics or the show

Wonderful game overall and got a few emotional responses out of me that I was NOT expecting to have. I am psyched that Telltale will eventually create a sequel.

Yeah, it definitely takes place at least partly, if not entirely, before the events in the comics, which is pretty cool (doubt it'll be considered canon, though).

What sort of choices did you make regarding...

As an aside, anyone excited for The Walking Dead FPS based off the TV show?  :laugh:

I've only seen most of the first season of the show and didn't care for it. Loved the game, though, just finished episode 5. Oh, and Gregorio, re: episode 3
(click to show/hide)

I'd go onto the game wiki after finishing each episode to see the alternate paths and was a little annoyed how most of the choices...ultimately didn't really matter.  Spoilers for all the whole thing, btw.

Yes, they're all different scenarios, sure, and it's more choice than most choice-based games, but it still kind of bugged me a little.

Finished episode 5 the other day, and cried my bloody head off.  I'd heard about how emotional the ending would be, and was worried that it wouldn't really live up to the hype.  It totally does.

Ohh, right, I've got this game now. I finished Episode 1 just yesterday. I'm interested in seeing how it all plays out. The bit at the motor inn was really annoying without object highlights so I decided to turn them on for the rest of the game.

I suppose I should wait a little bit before starting Episode 2, but not too long otherwise I'm going to forget stuff.

So Telltale designers and voice talent are playing the game live on Twitch all this week. I haven't had time to watch any myself (it starts literally as a I finish work and I've been busy in my evenings) but it's all there as VoD on the channel.

Could be interesting!

I played through the game and I finally came to a realization. Fuck Kenny. Fuck him! All he does is bemoan my choices, yell at everyone, and generally bring the whole group down.

I just finished 400 Days and holy crap! Every story is pretty short, but packs all the heart pounding action and decisions into it that the regular story has.

I am super interested in how 400 Days is going to tie into Season 2.

And Tell Tale better tell me what the fuck happened to Clementine.

Rumor has it that Tavia might be the main character of season 2. Also,

I just bought the Walking Dead on a whim, because I seriously only heard praise about it so far.

That being said, I'm now past the first episode, and the promo for Episode 2 looks freaking scary

Yeah, that was the chapter where I felt like I had the least choice about things. Also the most depressing.

It's the chapter I've cried the most at, so far. I haven't been able to end it yet.
