I was hoping Michonne got killed, she is such a pointless character. I liked the Govenor he is such a maniac, its great. I like those insane characters they bring life to a dead serie. But i've gotten tired of Walking dead, they never do anything. They just hang around that shitty prison, never like explore what the hell is going on in the world?

It should be heading for a much more interesting bit. The prison was not ment to last as long as it did. In the comics the illness bit, as well as the governor's people joining rick's team never happened. They lengthened it to milk it.

 

Michonne is actually 9 kinds of badass, so speak no ill of her. She is just more of an actiony character, which they been slow to approach. In the comics she is awesome.


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I would, but I'm just so disappointed in TTG being a shitty company on EA's level that I refuse to give them money.

Why're they a shitty company?

 

Also isn't it kinda a 'hate the artist not the art' thing? Like, I loved the shit out of Fez but Phil Fish is a right cock. XD

The release of season 1 of TWD was buggy, and they had no communication whatsoever with their fans when asked about things like release dates, fixes for the bugs, etc. The only thing they ever said was "Talk to Sony, it's nothing to do with us" and then Sony would tell us the same thing "Talk to TTG, it's nothing to do with us"

 

They have also been extremely lax regarding communication for their other game, The Wolf Among Us. They don't respond to help requests and whatnot on their official forum, they don't say a thing about release dates of the episodes, etc

 

They are honestly an awful company and I don't feel like funding that level of rudeness.

 

Plus the first season was about £20 for what was basically a 5 hour game. noty I bought XCOM Declassified for £7 and have gotten far more gameplay time and enjoyment out of it.

 

I also dislike episodic content to begin with because it seems lazy, and to ask people to pay the full amount and then only give them 1/5th of the product is bullshit.

That seems like a PC problem though, my brother and I have been playing through both seasons of TWD and the first ep of TWAU and we've only encountered I think, two bugs (both in TWD) in the whole game. It could be down to a bad port to the computer? I guess I'd be more inclined to complain if I had personally seen any problems but then, me complaining would be me not giving them money.

I played it on PS3. They've only actively supported the 360 version of the game, and ignored the other two platforms. Not to mention all the release debacles they had.

 

Plus I just don't understand the rave reviews the game got. It's really not great. And now they're also doing a Game of Thrones game, AND a Borderlands game? Give me a break.

Ignoring the whole 'Telltale doesn't care' part, I find their Walking Dead franchise really refreshing. It's truly a fun way of storytelling. It could use more interactions and decisions, but otherwise it does a great job with the plot and staying true to the feeling of Comic Book.

That's why I trust Game of Thrones game can be great, as it's a serie focused way more about plot and survival in a cruel world than anything else.

I've never bothered to watch it aye.

 

Like Vampires there's an oversaturation of zombie content out there. 

 

 

You know, I've never seen a tank unleashed it's fury upon a zombie horde. That would be awesome in a game......

 

Maybe it's because I never saw the first episodes which is why I've never bothered with it? People tend to give praise when they tak about the show.

The problem with The Walking Dead is that the team behind it is pretty average. They got GREAT plot to work with from the Comic Book, started really well too in season 1, but soon after that things got far worse. It just shows that the directors can make the show interesting, but sometimes they just completely miss the mark which results in complete snooze fests. Inexperience I'd say. The show is a long spiral of good and bad episodes. As long as they stick to main plot of the comic they are ok, but to be honest they went around changing too much stuff which caused lots of inconsistences and resulted in a boring experience for most part.

It's still worth a watch, especially when you don't have a habit for picking out mistakes and just go casual about it. Just don't expect too much, the show has such great scores only because it's a. The only Zombie show on television b. The main plot that originates from the comic is great c. It's like a mix of gore and soap opera, so something for everyone!
