Is the game performance terrible for anyone else? The framerate is just awful at some points.

Holeeee shit. That was so brutal, so punishing, that I'm honestly not sure whether I want to put myself through any more of it. I mean, I know that means the game did its job and I commend the writers. I just don't know. I'm still upset about it.

Episodes 1 and 2 had a few hiccups here and there, but episode 3 was just ridden with bugs from start to finish. Massive framerate drops at times and at two points, the game completely froze and I had to quit and restart it.

For me at least, the framerate problems were much worse in Episode 2 than 1 or 3. Episode 2 just sputtered and lagged the entire time for me. Episode 3 was a big improvement. Seems like it's pretty YMMV though.

The only glitch I ran into in 3 was when I first started playing, it loaded Episode 1 instead of Episode 3, which I had selected. I was terrified that my save had been erased or something! But I just quit out and it worked fine on the second try.

Besides Silent Hill 2 and Red Dead Redemption.....there hasn't been any games that get me so emotionally attached. Episode 3 was rough from start to finish.

Nier was the last game that got me emotionaly attached to the charcters. I remember being very skeptical when I heard Telltale was handleing this. I'll never doubt you again.

For those who completed the 3 episodes so far, have you replayed any of the episodes (with different decisions) or are you gonna wait until all are released?

I am playing first on 360, and I have started episode 1 on PS3 since ep 1&2 are free for PSN+. I will probably get the rest of the episodes eventually for PS3.

Holy hell this game is awesome!!!! I want more lol. I rarely play games a 2nd time but knowing what I did on the 360 version I will download it on PS Plus for free and play the first 2 episodes again. I am sure I screwed up in a few spots and cause peoples lives but my Lee version 2 is going to be an asshole to all who I feel deserve it!

sadly, your choices really dont matter. no matter how you play (nice, asshole, neutral) the same people will die no matter what. kinda lame in that respect.

There is usually a choice between people in some instances. Also, we don't know how any of this might effect the end of the story.

damn i want to play ep 3 so bad but unfortunately i bought it on PC which means the game crashes on the opening screen so i dont even get a chance to download ep 3 or even play any episodes. telltale support is non exsistant so im just hoping one of the many people on the official fourms with the same problem will eventually find a fix for this.

the same thing happened to me when it was time for ep2 but i dont remember how i got past it and i feel for most of the people whos save files get lost.

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.

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.
