So those of you who are playing the game already, can you confirm any of the issues with the disc version? I keep hearing that the xbox 360 version wont let you play episode 2 after completing episode 1.


I'm not sure if you mean the disc only version. But this is simply not the case with the download version.

Yeah I mean the retail physical disc version. I played through the digital version already and only had two issues.
1) Glitch in episode 3 where the game world clipped and made lee walk around in a weird void then froze.
2) When I downloaded episode 5, I hit play and it took me back to episode 1. As soon as I saw that I quickly powered my xbox off to avoid a new save and rebooted it and it worked after that.

I keep hearing the disc has framerate and stutters (which the digital version had as well), but supposedly its so bad that you can't do any action events in time. Also that the disc version wont let you continue past episode 1. This is what people are saying so who knows.

Be interesting to see how quickly these sell out. I honestly feel the only thing this set has going for it is how limited it is (isnt it?). If your a walking dead fan you should already own the compendium and that is pretty much the only collectible item in this package.

GS is notorious for shipping out damaged CE games or something?

Maybe I should just pay $10 for one day shipping and not risk it on Value shipping?

I ordered the Witcher 2 Dark Edition from them and it came just fine and that is a similar shape. Although it was stuck in an oversized box with NO padding. So I kinda feel I got lucky. If you REALLY wanted this set itd be worth it to risk unless you want to pay the $150 on eBay.

Honestly, the retail version of this game looks like a disaster from what I'm reading on other forums, at least on the 360 side of things.

Edit: looks like the PS3 version is having some bad glitches, too.

If it comes all damaged I'll just return it to the store - no harm no foul.

so something interesting happened, i went in to pick up my CE after doing a few trade ins to pay it off, and then they told me the CE i preordered was for the xbox even though i preordered it for the PS3.

So the guy said he was just going to have the ps3 CE shipped to me and sold me a standard copy to play for now to make up for the screw up.

The kicker is that I will be able to return the standard copy for a full refund once i receive the CE in the mail, so yea, not a bad day.

Lmao at preorders only. Also, SAVER does NOT work with this. I refuse to pay $10 above MSRP because GS wants to charge for shipping. Looks like I'll still be calling stores on Friday looking for a non picked up preorder.

o yea definitely, he wrote it on my receipt and in some book and i've seen him there for years so if some guy gives me trouble ill just look up the cashier on my receipt and ask for him

it should also be dated in the book as 12/12/12 so it's kinda hard to miss that

These were preorder only, just because they have some in stock doesnt mean TellTale just quickly made more and sent them out. Its been 24 hours since the games been released, all preorder copies that could not be processed or were cancelled are now available through the site. Once these are gone that will be it. This happens EVERY time a Collectors Edition is released, the next couple of days it will pop back up on the site and then its gone.

I'm returning this thing now. Playing the PS3 version and just finished the first episode, but I can't even pick dialogue options a good amount of the time, because of the skipping.

There were a few of the QTE that I nearly messed up as well, because the screen wouldn't even load.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Damn. Might have to return the 2 copies I bought and get MS points as gifts so they can download the game instead. Heard the 360 version has the same issues.

can't they just patch all these issues? I had glitches with the digital version on PS3 on episode 3 when I exited the train one time and clipped thru the bottom of the world. Exited the game and restarted, resumed just fine. But these problems you guys are talking about make it sound unbearable. Can't believe TT would just let it live like this..

They're going to have to patch them. If you read the forums at Telltale it sounds like nobody has been able to get the disc version working correctly, between having to spam a button through the stuttering hoping to pass a QTE or people not being able to continue to the next chapter.

I bet those people saying it would sell out if it were $100 dollars feel pretty stupid right now.

I'm kind of happy I didn't even get the vanilla version based on what I hear now. By the time they patch the problems the game will go on sale.


Spike should have not gave GOTY to a game that is only digital. Not in till a physical version was released as not everyone has a internet connection.

Why would we?

The eBay auctions are still selling for over $100, and even if they drop the price will go back up once it's OOS at GS once again.

The only way that would change is if they majorly overproduced the set afterall and there ends up being a ton of them on the market. I don't expect that, but I certainly wouldn't feel stupid about it. If it's limited to any sort of small number, it'll be a $100 seller for quite some time, especially once the current GS stock is depleted.

Don't be stupid. Gamestop sold out of their preorder allotment prior to release.

Anything that went back on sale today is either A) Cancelled orders B) Orders that didn't go through due to payment problems C) Reserve stock D) Returns


It boggles me that long standing members on a video game thread will say "LOL It's not rare/limited" because it came back in stock the day before, of or after release.

This happens with EVERY LE/CE from Diablo 3 to Darksiders 2 to Skward Sword you name it.

I would much rather see this happen the a company OVERSELLING its allotment and leaving customers out to dry---even if it means the ignorant chime in with something like:

LOL @ BEING LIMITEDZZZZ

Meh, semantics on being GOTY while only digital.

The experience it gives is fantastic regardless of only having a digital distribution at the time. The time of people not having some form of internet is hastily drawing to a close. More people have some form of internet over even having a landline these days. We'll eventually be completely digital whether we like it or not.

In any case, the retail release was already known and announced. Thats existing.

I guess i'm the ugliest one here and cainaiac is the sexiest, damn.
