To anyone who thought Skybound couldn't possible be a bunch of dicks about their physical releases like Telltale was... well, think again. Today marks the release of both the final episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 4 and the physical reason of Season 4. Anyone with half a brain would think they would include all the episodes on disc if they were waiting until the exact same date as the digital release drops, right?
The physical edition is a "Season Pass Disc" which includes the first three episodes and requires you to download the fourth episode. I knew Telltale would put out a Season Pass disc with just the first episode at the start of the series' releases, but this takes things to a whole new level of dickishness. What genius came up with this idea? So you can either buy the entire season digitally for $20 and play it without ever having to put a disc in your system, or pay $30 for the privilege of owning just the first three-fourths of the game on disc. I was willing to pay the $24 after GCU for the entire game on disc, but this crap is going back to Bestbuy tomorrow.
yeah, those season pass discs are pretty much pointless. since TT started doing that, i stopped buying their physical releases except for TWD Collection. now, i just wait for the digital versions to be heavily discounted or don't buy the games at all.
