no thats what im talking about though. for instance in episode 1

Spoiler


point being if you choose to not kill someone, another character in the game will or if a character dies, theres basically nothing you could have done to save that character.

i get why telltale is doing this. having the story branch out too much would be a ton of work and they cant even get these out on time like they said they would the way it is (thinking episode 4 will come out in sept and 5 in october is a damn long shot). so in order to keep the story simpler for them, they are just going to completely cut off branches of the story no matter what.


Spoiler


Well, it's the same idea as the Mass Effect series; it's less about actually branching the story based on your choices and more about making you feel like the story is branching based on your choices. Of course the illusion gets shattered a little bit when you replay and find out that what seemed to be the dramatic consequences of your individual choice also happened to everyone else. But the first time through, before you've taken a look behind the curtain, is quite a ride.


Agreed. Unless you know all the spoilers and read the different decisions.....your first walk through from Episode 1 to 3.....makes it feel your decisions DO matter. That's the whole point. Doing a reply nullifies that feeling, but your first complete walkthrough gives you a satisifed feeling that your choices do have some consequences.

My point was you still develop a different feeling about the characters that do survive, hence when something happens with them you feel differently. My comparison being Carly and Doug.

I'm so day one-ing that disc. I absolutely need a physical copy of a game of this caliber. Its release date also gives us some small reassurance that we'll get the final two episodes on schedule not that I'm holding my breath.

With the way this game chugs when you're playing it off the HDD, I can't imagine how it will perform playing it from the optical drive.

I do have that issue as well. The FPS comes to a stand still at certain sections.

If this was an online game or a serious $59.99 game, I'd be pissed. However, with the connections I've made with this game.....I can deal with the slow chugging of the boring scenes.

it is true. they stated early on in season 1 that a season 2 will happen. i mean, its prob their most well received game so i dont see why not.

the real question is, who will you play as in season 2.

Yeah! I love the series so much that, after getting eps. 1 & 2 free from PlayStation Plus (and having a few $10 PSN cards lying around) I've been replaying the game on PS3 being a complete selfish asshole rather than the goody-two-shoes I have played as on the 360.

I wasn't intrested in Adventure games until recently thanks to Back to the Future and Walking Dead. I played a few for the PC as a kid and a couple during the PS1 era but never really got into them. I'm a BttF fan and after seeing videos and interviews I was pleased to see how they were handling the franchise and decided to give it a try. But I have to admit I was sceptical hearing about the idea of Telltale making a zombie adventure game based on WD. I didn't even try it till episode 1&2 came up for free on Playstation Plus. My concern couldn't be more misplaced.

I can't wait to hear more news about Fables. It seems TT is handling a bunch of my favorite franchises and I couldn't be more happy.

No it didn't, and no plans of it going to. Seems like it came out for everything else.

Also curious about the Jurassic Park game. The reviews have been scattered, mostly fair.
