  • Who am I kidding? I'm probably going to switch to this new one anyway since it's what I want and what I've got exp. in... I'll learn about media acting at some point in it.

    Nice. Once you're a big shot actor don't forget us little people!

    Damn, that's still happening? I thought a lot of them were taken off of steam when TTG originally closed, but then they were put back on somehow. Yikes that's sad.

    Yep. The games are now being delisted from GOG and the only Telltale games left on Steam are the Batman games, Guardians, and Texas Hold 'Em.

    The trailer has me worried, I'm happy for Linda Hamilton and Arnold to reprise their roles but the new characters look soo bland and the CGI doesn't look promising. I was rooting for it before because James Cameron accepted to work on this franchise again but it looks like it's going to be same as Alien Covenant.

    Looks like I got my wish (kinda). 2K are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back on sale "as soon as possible".

    Hopefully Skybound pick up Wolf Among Us and gets that back on storefronts, along with Microsoft and Minecraft: Storymode. The only one I don't see getting picked up would be Game of Thrones sadly since HBO doesn't seem particularly committed when it comes to their video games.

  • I don't see Skybound picking up TWAU to be honest, mainly because it's made by a separate company (Vertigo, which is a subsidiary of DC). It would have to be up to either Vertigo or DC to try and get TWAU back up on storefronts.

  • I don't have a lot of games to play so I decided to watch a TV show. And I chose Breaking Bad to binge. I've seen the pilot episode like 2 years ago but couldn't keep watching because I had too much to do in my free time but I rewatched it and now I just finished Episode 2 which convinced me to keep watching this show, it looks awesome.

    Breaking News: The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie has been delayed to February of next year.

    Most of their mobile games are still on the (Android) store. Batman, Guardians, Batman 2, Tales, and Wolf.
    Apparently, this company called 'Howyaknow, LLC' has taken over publishing rights of TWD: S1, S2 and Michonne. ANF and TFS are nowhere to be found.

    Unfortunately, the Telltale Publishing titles are gone. Well, title. Looked for their Mr. Robot Exfiltration game, and there's nothing.
    Hopefully Night School Studios can salvage that since it's been on my mind to buy recently.

    For those who don't know, Skybound released some comparison screenshots of the Definitive Edition with the Graphic Black enhancement alongside the previous games and the fan reception so far is pretty mixed. Keep in mind they're not done with the visuals and they've talked about touching up some of the character models (specifically Lee) with them saying it's not exactly the same as the Final Seasons model, "but it does not look like Season 1 either."

    Okay so here's my humble opinion regarding the changes so far.

    Season 1

    I actually think this one looks really good, the yellow gives off a nice evening look in my opinion. It's also not as weirdly de-saturated as the other screenshots. I mean, it still is but it's not as bad.

    This one's way too yellow, especially compared to the original lighting which had two different lighting set ups (blue in the foreground and green in the back).

    Season 2

    I think season 2 so far has had the most positive change for me. They look like they're ripped straight out of a comic. Especially this one which really looks like a 2D image.

    Okay maybe this one's a bit too blue.

    A New Frontier

    Season 3 probably has the nicest blacks to them, making them look very much like a comic (especially with all that detail) and Javi no longer looks like he's lathered in oil anymore which is nice. But the colours are way too washed out. I think it would also be better if the outlines were thicker like S1, S2 and S4.

    This one's way too washed out. The environments have a really nice black to them but it really needs to have more colour.

    My Thoughts Overall

    I think the blacks, shadows and outlines have seen a really nice improvement. They give the games a "ripped from the pages" look which I really like (I get it if you don't, I just really like that aesthetic), however there needs to be a lot more colour. That is the main criticism amongst the fanbase so far when it comes to these screenshots so hopefully they take it to heart and turn up the saturation or something.

    To those calling the team lazy for not redoing every single game into Final Seasons graphics. Did you seriously think they would be able to entirely remake three whole games in under a year with the limited resources they have? Plus, like what has been said already, they're still not done yet and are taking feedback regarding the visuals so slow your roll. If you want your criticisms to be heard, tell them while you have the chance so they can further improve the visuals but don't be too overzealous about it.

  • Go see it with your dates!

    Wow, yeah they look pretty good and decent, imo. Overall, I really like the added black lining and Cel-Shaded look.
    Clementine's house in Season 1 has a lot more detail and I love how you can see the wood exterior. I don't like how dirty the black graphic makes it look though. The pharmacy shot in Season 1 is definitely too yellow and bright, as well.
    Season 2 is a great improvement, and the original is even the season with my favourite look and comic-UI This just ups the black and really makes it look like it's a comic. However, the filters have been really beefed up, something that is really unneeded.
    Season 3 looks great, and I both like and hate how a lot of the colours are washed-out and inked-up, because it certainly makes it look more in line with the black-and-white comics, but it just doesn't fit with the rest of the game having colour. (maybe they should just make ANF completely black and white. That'll fix it and it'll be thematically/plot appropriate!)

    I like what I see thus far. If I don't in the future, then I can always jump back into the original game, seperate from all the art improvements.

    Any news on Michonne getting the graphic style?

  • To me, some screenshots look really good and I find to be an improvement (the junkyard in ANF, Lee outside Clem's house in S1), and some look like they need some extra work done to them (Lee in the drugstore, Javi in Prescott bar).

  • I don't like how dirty it the black graphic makes it look though.

    I kind of like it, but the graphic black does go a bit overboard at times. Most particularly in the shelves of the pharmacy where it's near pitch black and you're supposed to be able to find an energy bar there, and Clem in the bathroom where despite there clearly being light shining through the window, that part of the bathroom is super dark.

    Any news on Michonne getting the graphic style?

    Only the main line games are getting remastered as far as I know, which is a shame because I think there a bunch of moments that would look great with the graphic black treatment. Most particularly the hallucination and flashback scenes.

    Yyyyup. What Lupin said.

    The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series contains all 4 Seasons and The Walking Dead: Michonne, which includes over 50 hours of gameplay across 23 unique episodes. With graphical enhancements, behind the scenes bonus features and faithful recreations of classic menus, this is the definitive way to experience Clementine’s journey and find out how her story ends.

    EDIT: I just realised, that last part intrigues me. 'faithful recreations of classic menus'. So they're essentially building certain aspects of the games from the ground up. Cool...

    Do they explain why the Green Goblin is a giant gargoyle?

  • In reply to your spoiler, No. He just is.
    It's some stylistic choice, probably based off of the Ultimate comics (where he's this Hulk-like goblin beast).

    The explanation for the movie itself was very indirectly implied by plot.
    Thanks anyway, though.

  • No, it's a Kojima game. Hideo loves making his games confusing until we play them ourselves.

    @AronDracula No, it's a Kojima game. Hideo loves making his games confusing until we play them ourselves.

    ...Ah.
    Anyway, I skimmed through it and the answer is yes.

    Went to go see John Wick with teh homies today. (No movie details here, just a funny story as to what happened before, during and after). So we bought the VIP tickets so we got seats up in the lounge with all of the free snacks and beverages, so one of my friends decides they should go and take advantage so he ordered 7 whiskeys, 4 vodkas, and 1 of something else I can’t rlly remember. As you can imagine, he was piiiiised, so much so that before the movie started we had to ask them to stop serving him, 10 mins into the movie he left to get some more (they didn’t allow it) so he went into the restroom to be sick, which then lead to another one of the homies carrying him out to a taxi and sending him home. We plan on hosting an intervention for him during the Sunday BBQ cos he needs to get his alcoholism under control 😂🙄

    I'm studying in Australia so the semesters usually start in February (which is towards the end of summer) and end in May, then the second semester will restart in July (middle of winter) and end in September/October. Unless you have a trimester class system which is a whole other beast.
