    The wait is almost over!

    We finally made it! It's been a long time coming, but we're finally close enough to release to make the Episode 1 Waiting Thread for the The Walking Dead's third Season! Announced all the way back in July of 2014, we are only several weeks away from the Season Premiere of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier!

    Want to take a trip down memory lane? Look back on the Pre-Season News thread to see older news updates all the way back from July 2014, leading up to this point.

    Ground Rules for Waiting Threads

    These rules apply to each Waiting Thread we make, so please be respectful of that. Thanks! :)

    It's okay to pass the time and make small talk, but please try to have actual conversation based around Walking Dead. In other words, please don't post random things just for the sake of posting. It's okay if there is nothing new to discuss for a while.

  • You know, I'll miss all the time we spent on the other thread.

  • I honestly won't miss it that much. It had a lot of filler posts.

    That being said, I guess you could call this... the 'New Frontier' of Waiting Threads. Har har har.... okay, I'll see myself out the door.

    I should probably clarify:

    It's okay if there is nothing new to discuss for a while. - It's okay to pass the time and make small talk, but please try to have actual conversation based around Walking Dead. Please don't post random things just for the sake of posting.

    This mainly applies to filler posts like pictures of food, posts asking why nobody is posting, etc. As long as you are otherwise making a genuine attempt at talking about Walking Dead, it's fine and we aren't going to be super strict.

  • It had a lot of filler posts.

    But that's what made it such a special thread. I remember the days of talking about horribly-tasting canned whole chickens, Carlos's stupidity, shitposting and having fun overall, in fact, that's the thread that made me be a member here. Well, rest in sweet chickens old thread :(

  • Has it really been 2+ years since 205? Damn... I feel old.

  • edited September 2016

    When blind sniper keeps making filler posts about filler posts.

    Kidding, I know it's only best to keep us updated. But just wondering, this will be the final episode one waiting thread, correct? We won't be making another one after this? It seems like there has been like 4 already haha.

    Well, technically this is the first - but, yes, definitely the final thread.

    The Season 3 thread was more of a general waiting thread and not a Episode 1 thread. Vain had recommended I try making a Season 3 Waiting Thread back in December of 2014, and I took him up on that at the time. However, it was kinda awkward since there was lots of downtime between whenever we got news. That and the E3/PAX threads were mostly just... experimenting I guess.

    For future series, Pre-Season News threads will be the norm prior to when we get a Ep 1 thread up and going. Prior to the Ep 1 Waiting Thread for a future series, either people will make their own news threads for individual updates or we will make mega threads for events like PAX, E3, etc.

    Anyways, no more games of musical chairs when it comes to moving between threads. This is the final thread, promise! :)

  • Yeah, it's crazy how much time has passed! One upside of the longer wait though is that the game has had more time in the oven, so to speak, so hopefully it will be closer to Season 1 in quality.

  • If I may... Could we have merged the previous thread that was closed opposed to just closing it

  • Aye indeed! I still oddly think of Season Two as brand new. Same as TWAU. It's amazing to see just how much Telltale has done in such a short time!

  • Finally EP 1 OF-THREAD <3

  • I personally feel it's better to have a clean slate and keep things consistent with how we usually set up waiting threads.

    The general Season 3 Waiting thread was the appetizer, and this thread is the main meal, so to speak.

  • edited September 2016

    Oh I'd been waiting for this moment to happen since a long long time.....
    Its finally here!!!!

  • I really hope they don't make it so that we play as Javier for the entire episode, and at the very end we meet Clem in the most dramatic way possible and the camera fades out.

  • Today is a good day.

    Can't wait to play the 1st episode. Meeting, and getting to know Javier more, is gonna be a treat.

  • I don't think telltale would do such a thing actually. If they have taken the decision to keep two protagonists, they must've thought it well. Both should be given equal importance according to me.

  • This is it guys... we're almost there :')

    I remember the days of talking about horribly-tasting canned whole chickens, Carlos's stupidity, shitposting and having fun overall,

    Tbh that sounds like every TWD waiting thread ever in existence, I don't really think that one was special :p

  • Yeah exactly.

    The fact that we learn about Clem through Javier means that Clem has to come up early in the first episode.

  • horribly-tasting canned whole chickens

    Sweet Sue's, that sounds familiar!

  • Moving waiting threads back and forth's got me like

    Clem's face

  • 2 months. 2 fucking months before I get to slay walkers, people, and have my emotions stomped on by TellTale.

    I AM READY.

  • I am so excited! This is my first Walking Dead episode waiting thread. I can't wait to play this game and discuss and debate with this community! I mean, I'm technically doing that now, but it'll be different when everything is coming out for the first time. I will never forget my first time. ;)

  • I think Javier should be the central focus of episode 1. That doesn't mean save Clem for the end, but specifically for episode 1 they need to introduce us to javier first and foremost. He can't just be thrown to the side simply because of Clementine, he's a brand new character and a central part of the season. After episode 1 I expect an equal split.

  • Aw yeah only 41-70 more days! Hopefully just the 41...

  • Don't worry, this is the final/definitive waiting thread. No more musical chairs with threads from this point out.

  • Nah, Javier shouldn't deserve extra screen time just cos he's new.

  • No more musical chairs with threads from this point out.

    This is a surprisingly accurate simile.

  • I remember the days of talking about horribly-tasting canned whole chickens, Carlos's stupidity, shitposting and having fun

    I'm a mod, it's my (volunteer) job to hate stuff like that. :p

    in fact, that's the thread that made me be a member here.

    Nice to hear that. We don't want the place to be entirely devoid of fun or anything like that, but we also don't want people to treat the forums like a glorified chat room instead of, well, a forum. Lately, we've been trying see if we can improve the quality of discussions while still allowing people to have fun on the side in certain cases, without the forums completely turning into a chat room. It's still something I'm trying to take into consideration with other mods, but at the same time, that unfortunately means at times that we want to cut off things like people talking about canned chickens.

  • This post does relate to The Walking Dead, but if this by any chance counts as off-topic spamming or anything, please just notify me so I don't repeat any similar actions in this thread. I wasn't exactly sure where I could share this, so here it is, for now.

    Bonecage, a.k.a. that one YouTuber that very few of you probably know about, just uploaded another Walking Dead Tribute video. This one is dedicated to Clementine and was made in anticipation of Season 3.

    I absolutely love this guy's "Sweetpea" (Lee and Clem tribute) and "Get it Together" (Kenny tribute) songs, and this one was no exception. I happen to fangirl and get very emotional over any well-done tribute, but those that create unique lyrics for the characters have a special place in that empty section in my chest where my heart should be located. If any of you have time, I'd recommend you check out this tribute and possibly the other two videos that I listed before. You won't be sorry...

    As I've said, Season 3 was a super weird case with us choosing to do a super early waiting thread. For future Telltale series, we'll be making Pre-Season News threads for when the game is further off. People will instead be able to post a new thread for individual news updates, and mods will make larger threads for events like PAX, Comic Con, E3, etc. Once we get around 1 to 2.5 months away from launch (ideally), we'll make our normal Episode Waiting threads.

    There were awkward moments with us moving between threads and all that because we were figuring things out on the fly or trying out experimental ways to make different threads, but the upside is that now we have experience to look back on and learn from for future Telltale series because of Season 3.

    We're getting in the groove of things in some areas while still working to be better in other areas. Changing how we organize news and discussions of upcoming Telltale series is one area we've improved in because of our experience with the earlier Season 3 thread, so future threads for upcoming series will be way more organized.

  • Don't worry, it's fine to share. Off topic spamming counts as stuff like posting random pictures of food/animals/etc to pass time, or making posts complaining that nobody else is posting. If it's related to Walking Dead or Telltale, it's usually fine to share.

  • And now we wait... in a proper thread this time. I'm looking foward to more plot twists and zombie slaying as Clem.

  • Just gotta wait a little longer, yo.

  • Alright, thank you. I wasn't exactly sure what was considered off-topic or not, so it's good to finally have that figured out.

  • I feel like the start of a big adventure! Literally a new frontier. Can't wait to have a new protagonist and an old protagonist and a brand new group!

    Oh, and finding out what happened to Kenny and his current whereabouts.

  • Oh, and finding out what happened to Kenny and his current whereabouts.

    He got lucky. Real lucky.

    I am SO excited for A New Frontier! I can't even contain it! I'm so amazed at how much Clem has grown, and I can't wait to see her again! She is my favorite character! :D
