Might have been the best episode yet. It was very hard to pick the choices this time around.

Finally finished up the whole thing. Ending was pretty depressing even if I knew it was coming and the guy at the end was a creepy bastard, too.

A great overall game/series. The last episode was a bit short but really good with the emotional storytelling. I didn't even know it was possible to be stuck alone at the end depending on your choices. That's a cool feature. I didn't piss anyone off too much so I still had everyone with me.


***SPOILER***The tie-in to the previous episdoe with the station wagon was a bit of a stretch though.***SPOILER***

I think they said there will be a new cast, but there might put in crossover stuff depending on your actions from the first game (if you have a save file).

Don't quote me on this but from what I've read, even if you're stuck alone at the end of episode 4, a bit into episode five the whole group ends up with you for some reason or another.
If you think about how this game is set up, that makes sense. There are no major alternate cut scenes or diverging plot points so most of what happens in each episode will happen regardless.

That said, I do agree about the station wagon thing. That was a lame tie-in. I think the problem is that bad guy wasn't developed enough as a character. More walkie talkie conversations between him and lee in prior episodes might have helped establish his motives and obsession with Lee. Brilliant game regardless though. Just a real downer ending.

I guess everyone else is too concerned about their little digital karma and tries to do the "right thing". Lame.


This game is all about tough choices. I wanted to kill the crap out of those two guys, but not with Clem standing there. And not with one of the friggin brothers begging for it so you can prove his twisted world view correct. Killing them is the easy choice. He was getting eaten anyways so in the end it would have done more harm than good.

Man this was a good game. I agree on walkie talkie man. More of a way to have someone read out all your past choices to you and try to make you pay for them. But really he was kind of an empty character. In the end though everything else is done so well I don't mind.

The Walking Dead is scooping up some GOTY selections from different places which is awesome to see. I honestly think it did a better job presenting the story and characters than the TV show in 2+ seasons.

I just picked this up on a whim from Gamestop while buying a Christmas present from my little cousin. Basically they printed me out a copy of a season pass code to use.

I just skimmed this thread because of all the very polite spoiler warnings, but I have a few questions, that may have been answered, but like I said I didn't read this all through.

Will this spoil the tv show for me?

Is this something I can finish over a week? I have Hitman waiting on my shelf, and I'm a little burnt out from the hours I put into Assassin's Creed, so now I'm afraid if I start Hitman I'll fry out for 3 months and not play anything. I'd rather play this if it's short and will serve to sort of refresh my pallet.

This will not spoil the tv show for you. The game takes place in the comic book universe of the Walking Dead. It follows a different group from the main (Rick's) group.

Each episode takes about 2 hours. So the whole game should take about 10 hours. So yes, it's passable in one week. I'm interested in getting your opinion on this game. I totally enjoyed it. I can't wait for the next one.

Cool. I'm gonna try to start it tonight. With all my television shows ending, I've got a little extra time. And lately I've been on a real Video Game kick.

So I didn't get very far. It's a tough game to play with other stuff going on in the room, because you really kind of have to listen and pay attention, otherwise what's the point, and there's not a whole lot of going back.

I'm probably half way through chapter one.

Does it play in multiple outcomes? Like could I have saved Herschal's son if I knew what the hell I was doing, and now I missed part of he story, because that will cause me to go back and play it more for sure. I'm already upset because I missed checking on some things in the house because I started listening to the answering machine early on, and it triggered the baby sitter. I would've preferred to inspected everything. Like I missed the shelves tipped over, even if there were nothing there.

I really dig the presentation. I like the animated graphics a lot. I was genuinely scared when the Sheriff popped up. And I like the handling of the quicktime events. They don't all feel the same at all yet. The stuff with the babysitter for example was really unique. I wish Lee moved a little quicker. But I can already say that I like the control better than I did in Heavy Rain, and that was very much trying to do a lot of the same things, just on a bigger scale.

If something happens to Clementine, I'm gonna be rippin ****in pissed!!!

The "care level" you will develop for Clem may be unmatched when it comes to video game characters. And I can't stand children in real life.

This game man.

I downloaded the entire thing this week and enjoying the hell out of it obviously. So tonight I'm about to play episode 5 and the "update is available" prompt comes up. I install the patch and that fucker deletes my motherfucking save! God damn it.
