The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series
 
Is anyone else playing this game at the moment?

For those who don't know, its a five episode game from Telltale Games, where the choices you make dictates how the game plays out. You play the game as Lee Everett, so a new character not associated with either the tv show or comics, and takes place at the outset of the zombie apocalypse when Rick Grimes is still in a coma.

Currently there are four episodes available, and I've just completed episode three. It's amazing to think how each different choice can change the story, as it remembers your previous choices from other episodes. In the third there are such heartbreaking yet compelling scenes, and have never been so pissed off by a game character after what happened.

They are currently available on XBL, PSN and Stream, but will be released on disc at the end of the year.

Finished episode 4, and I don't like where it's headed. :(

Verbose Minch 10-16-2012 01:47 AM

It's absolutely phenomenal. Episode four broke my heart.

#BROKEN Hasney 10-16-2012 02:09 AM

I thought 4 was the weakest of the series as an episode, but those last 10 or so minutes were amazing. It was clearly just a build up to the final episode and I can respect that. It was still fantastic even as the weakest one, mind you.

Goddamn 5 cannot come soon enough. This has reminded me to make a thread though...

Skippord 10-16-2012 02:15 AM

someone buy this for me

Kalyx triaD 10-16-2012 03:59 AM

Knowing what is coming kit broke mine too.

Ermaximus 10-16-2012 10:16 PM

So for anyone who has played all 4 episodes, who came with you at the end?

Obviously put your answers in spoiler tags.

SPOILER: show
Kenny, Christina, Ohmed, and Ben.

Kalyx triaD 10-16-2012 11:54 PM

Why spoiler tags? The game is very personalized for people.

Mercenary 10-17-2012 12:52 AM

Fuck Kenny he became a dick.

Verbose Minch 10-17-2012 01:37 AM

Every group member came with me.

Kalyx triaD 10-17-2012 01:56 AM

Fuck Kenny.

Ermaximus 10-17-2012 11:41 AM

I really wish Molly and Lily had stayed with me.

Razzamajazz 10-17-2012 12:14 PM

is this something i need to watch the show for?

Kalyx triaD 10-17-2012 12:41 PM

No.

PapaGeorgio 10-19-2012 11:29 AM

I'm alright with Kenny. He has been through a lot and mostly been by my side to help when needed. He's not the perfect guy to have on your side, but I'll take him. I killed off Ben. He asked for it so I delivered, he caused too many problems. But then as soon as I did it I realized that I was just like the people of the town, killing off the weak and felt terrible. Then Kenny ratted me out to fucking everyone in front of Clem, was pissed about that. In the end I have everyone but Ben with me. Going to be a sad final chapter I think.

Mercenary 10-19-2012 11:44 AM

So how did you like digging up that dog?

Tom Guycott 10-25-2012 12:40 AM

You know, I'm a little upset with how ep 4 turned out for me. Unlike PapaGeorgio, I had no qualms about letting that bastard fall. He got 4 people killed directly (story suggestion wise... wheather they die ANYWAY remains to be seen on subsequent playthroughs), chickened out when asked to protect Clementine whilst they were surrounded, also, didn't bother even keeping an eye on her to let her sneak off, and decided on his "confession" at the absolute worst possible time... so, when he said "Let me fall", I was all like "Okay!" and gleefully let him go. Wish I had the opportunity to SHOOT HIM IN THE FACE like a certain other person got over that bandit situation.

And so, I'm supposed to feel *sorry* for letting him die? And am supposed to have an outcome in which I TAKE THIS SCREW-UP WITH ME ON A RESCUE MISSION!?! Piss on that! Triage.


Also, (@Merc) I didn't have a problem with digging up the dog. I had a problem with the "re-burial". So sad, especially after seeing that painting in the house to put it in perspective.

PapaGeorgio 10-25-2012 07:11 PM

Well put Guycott. Well put.

Disturbed316 10-25-2012 08:03 PM

Just finished episode four, completely loving this series. I've hated Ben ever since we found out it was him that was giving the bandits stuff, and when he confessed to Kenny, I was ready to kill him there and then, but when it came time to choose I couldn't let him drop. He had just completley given up and I ended up feeling sorry for him. In the end, Ben was the only one who came along with me.

Felt sorry for Chuck, wouldn't have been a nice way to go. But I wasn't overly bothered by Brie's death. Had a real 'oh fuck' when realised Lee had been biten at the end, and surprised to find only 20% of other gamers hid the bite like I did.

You're going to end up biting Ben, watch.

There was more at work than the sheer "exitement" of letting Ben fall. Giving the inconsistency of how many times I've been lifted/dropped by Kenny, yet effortlessly lifted onto a roof by some strange chick with a mountain climbing hook (Molly, and "Hilda", respectively)... I kinda figured there would be some sort of danger I would be placed in by trying to pull a prone Ben up, only to have it backfire and put both of us in some "active time" danger in which I have to protect THE BOTH OF US because he sucks ass. No thank you. There was more at work than me being a dick to him, especially since I tried not to be a dick to anyone the whole game... but it seemed the path of least resistance, and kept the rest of us safer. Plus, he deserved it, so fuck him.

Also, I figured it was Ben in the first place. However, I didn't have any sure proof or catch him in any kind of lie or anything before the Motor Inn fell, so I didn't want to be all "It was him!!!" and then have them ask me to prove it like so much L.A. Noire. Hell, I almost admitted to it just to see what would happen. I just didn't think Carly would catch a case of shot-in-the-face syndrome over it. Absolutely will cop to it on another playthrough.

Somewhat unrelated, I wish Ben's fate would have been shared by Hope from Final Fantasy XIII. Those two can sit next to each other in hell as far as I'm concerned. Horrible, horrible characters. At least in Ben's case, I kinda was to blame for rescuing him in the first place. Hope is foisted on you from jump.

Lastly, the bite thing was kinda spoiled for me. I figured "you" weren't going to make it, since a) it's Walking Dead- nobody's safe 'cept anyone who was cannon- like Glenn and Hershel, and b) the artwork for every chapter acts as a minor spoiler... chapter 3 has the train, so you stop driving the RV and hop a train at some point, chapter 4 shows Lee, Kenny, and Christa, so pretty much that tells you you meet her and she's going to live at least into going to live into the next chapter. In the chapter five art, Clem's by herself. That in itself seemed suspect.

Mercenary 10-27-2012 03:46 PM

So I decided to let let Kenny get eaten, but that damn Christ saved him.

Crimson 10-27-2012 10:59 PM

It's only me and Kenny..damn I shoulda saved Ben now come to think of it. Im guessing he woulda died anyway in the first part of the next episode anyways though

Mercenary 10-31-2012 08:08 PM

So I'm going through My Walking dead comics, and well Kenny=Jim

Jim the guy who didn't survive past four episodes in both media? Okay.

Oh look, he looks a lot like him.

Tom Guycott 10-31-2012 11:56 PM

Honestly, my only true problem with this game is the LACK OF INVERSION OPTION! Chaps my ass the number of time's I've died over something so simple just because it goes to some first or tight third person action sequence and I can't fight a walker off not because I don't know what to do, or am reacting too slow, but because I skew the cursor completely the wrong way. Hopefully, they at least correct this fault with the disc release.

And Season 2.

Kalyx triaD 11-01-2012 02:25 AM

I play shooters inverted and this point/click game (let's be real) never bothered me, even on the first-person bits.

Episode four choices trailer has gone up, always interested to see these. It also means the release date for the next episode is due as these coinside with each other.

Mercenary 11-13-2012 04:14 PM

I can never save the girl in episode 1 it makes me pick Doug every time.

Disturbed316 11-14-2012 09:15 PM

Episode 5 has been given the release date of 20th November for PSN, and 21st November for all others. Cannot wait to see how this ends.

How?

I saved Carly straight up. The only decision I've made through the entire game (besides letting Ben drop) where I wasn't playing peacemaker or being a nice guy. It was pure triage: Carly had a GUN, Doug was by a door they were pouring in. Carly had a gun, Doug was more meat for them to be distraced by and chew through while we all got away. Also, CARLY HAD A GUN!

If Carly were by the door and Doug were reaching for the gun, I'd have saved him. Less about the person, more about the zed repellant in that instant.

Because he is a Neanderthal.

I almost don't want Ep 5 to come. Other than the very end of Deadly Premonition, it's the only game to give me any real emotion in ages, Think I'll be doubly crushed, one by the story and again that it's all over.

Tom Guycott 11-16-2012 01:17 AM

You shouldn't feel so bad about it being over, Hansey. They've announced another season. You'll have a whole new gang to get attached to and helplessly watch as they're mercilessly killed off at an unexpected juncture!

It wouldnt give me the command in the cursor thing.
