really?!?:roll: Bypass their own website where they get users to register to receive the game and put it on bittorent instead?

:dunce:no comment....


I can't tell if you're being serious or not. Bittorrent is just the way the files would be distributed. You'd still need to be registered to play it. They wouldn't include a crack.

I rather have a physical copy of this to put next to the movies.


They do physical copies, but they require you to sign in to your account each time you start the game. So it really offers no advantage over the digital versions.

I can't get it to run on an old laptop. Looks like I got some driver updates and directx stuff and other work to do. This is why I stick with console games. :) I deal with software development all day, but I don't want to mess with it when I get home. Just let me hold the controller and start playing!

It'll be released 6 months or so after the complete series is done. This is how they do it for all of their games. You buy the season, play them digitally as they're released, then you're entitled to a free copy of the DVD (which also comes with audio commentary, behind the scenes features, developer's journals, concept art, etc).

Definitely not happy with needing to be online to play it. Still waiting for them to send me the unlock code. Why the hell do companies do this crap.

The game still costs too much and it is as much a blight to Back to the Future series as Back to the Future Part 3. Too bad we never have and never will get a good BttF game.

If only a talented developer worked on it instead of Telltale.



WOW . . . go else where to slander this game , the movies & the developer!!! Telltale is an awesome developer & the movies are great . . . . this community can do with out your trolling:roll:

BttF 3, bad? I think you're in the minority on this one, this is an opinion I've never heard.

This looks pretty sweet. Hope this comes over to the 360.


What bugs me is that I could have sworn that, in an interview
some years ago, TT said that their new engine would make it
easy to put a game on any of the major systems.

I'd snag it on the 360 in a second. My guess is that bureaucratic
mumbo jumbo at Microsoft stopped it.

I found a fix on the Telltale forums. Rename the application, removing all the spaces. I renamed mine to 'BackToTheFuture101' and now it works properly. Pretty f'ing silly bug. OP - you might want to mention this in the OP for us Mac users.

i'm on pc (min7) and I'm getting the same problem as the mac users. My file already is named what you suggest with no spaces?!

Also Win 7 here. I had it run immediately after install by leaving the run file box checked. But after exiting the program I could not get it to open again.
Right clicked and ran as administrator and it works everytime now.
Try that. ;)

I'm assuming it's Microsoft not liking the episodic thing.

Yeah, 3 was by far the weakest entry into the Trilogy, the old west thing never really worked for me ... and seemed like sort of a cop out after they made the elaborate future sets in the 2nd movie. It's not a bad movie, just not a great movie ... I would say they go in order of greatness for me - 1>2>3

BTW, is it just me or does the optimization on the PS3 version suck? No wonder it's $5 less :roll:

Does anyone know of a way to reset passwords? For whatever reason, the Password Reset E-mail NEVER gets dispatched - nothing in spam folders either even after waiting a day or two. I've e-mailed support but no response yet...I signed up for this a while ago and was anxious to play it.

I sent them an email last Friday and they didn't respond to me until Tuesday night.
