    In season 2 I'd like the decisions to be more important for how the story goes on. That means that the main character should be the group leader and the others shouldn't just ignore your decisions like in season 1 (going to the St. Johns, taking the food from the car, ...)

    That'd be way too unrealistic. Having control over the outcome of the game based on simple decision making is a terrible idea. The whole driving point behind the drama of The Walking Dead is the hopelessness you feel from lack of control, and it was the whole selling point of the game in general. That means other characters should be able to outvote you and take away your decision if enough of them disagree with you, that's how life is in general.

    That being said, it would be nice to see that you can make some kind of a difference in the direction of the story, even if the end point is the same.

    Why unrealistic? You can definitely become leader of a group (ppl also listen to Rick)
    Of course the others can decide to 'mutiny' and get you out of command if you do too much shit.

    All in all I just want that decisions really matter (of course you can't choose anything, shit still has to happen). They just didn't do it because it would have been too much efforts.

    Totally agree. Clem looks mixed race, Christa looks Indian.

    Edit: Actually no, she looks more Arabic.

    Do we actually know, what race they are suppose to be?

    doesn't change my point, i'd still like black women on this game that actually look like they're black.

    clem looks asian/white, christa looks indian.

    Epicanthic fold, slant eyes are predominant in African people as well as Asian people.

    You're not making any sense.

    Nope, this game is fine the way it is.

    Mr Marcus told me there were no pale skinned black people, I showed him there is. Then he tells me it doesn't change his point. I don't think he's even aware of what his point is. Tell you what, you get the funds, to hire game developers to make you the game you've always wanted.

    I sense a bit of color ism going on here. Doesn't believe light skinned people are considered black? I find that offensive. Hopefully mods take action.

    Getting back on topic, I am DYING for just a small tidbit of season 2. I WANNA KNOW WHATS GONNA HAPPEN! Even a rumor would be nice.
  • edited December 2012
    Come on guyes... This discussion hans gone on for a little to long, and now it is not even about race anymore, just who is more stupid... Isn't that a little to silly?

    Some guy (And I'm to lazy to quote:), said that he wanted back to topic, and was dying to know just a rumor about S2, and when we will get it. Now this guy is smart, cause he knew excatly what I would like to:)

    So anything..? Even a rumor:)
  • edited December 2012
    What if the characters in s2 live in a Woodbury type place?
  • edited December 2012
    I don't think there are any rumours (at least I haven't heard any). I guess being smaller mean TTG can keep things quieter , and only release info when they're ready/want to.

    I would also guess a governor or Neegan type in season 2, and birth(or just pregnancy) situation, but those aren't rumours :3
  • edited December 2012
    What is this race BS going on here? It has nothing to do with the next season of TWDTG - especially not if we get a new protagonist who isn't Lee everett-colored.

    That said, let me (mis-)quote Rick:

    'There are no ni**ers any longer, or even stupid rednecks - only the living and the dead.'

    Sorry everyone, had to delete some serious insults in this thread. For some people here, I'm not really sure they meet the age requirements for the game.

    The "Clementine skin color level" discussion has ended herewith. Thank you.

    Thanks Vain. It was getting really depressing:)

    Going back to topic, I just had an idea for Season 2: what if Clem got bit and the player had to amputate her arm to make sure she survives? Would be really dark an mirror what happened to Lee.

    Not sure if it's going to happen, but this is a speculation thread after all :)

    It would definatly be a lot like TWD, if you had to do something like that. It would be cool, eventhough I would really really hate it. I hope you get my point anyway:)

    Okay.. crazy idea.

    Since some people think Clem might be the protagonist .. let me say, thats IMPOSSIBLE. The whole point of season 1 was to TEACH Clem what she needs to survive the Apocalypse. So what if, your choices and the whole season 1 transfer thing, makes Clems personality. Certain choices in season 1 might give her a Lilly/Take charge personality if you sided with Lilly, while Siding with Kenny makes her irrational and wanting to take care ofthe people closest to her. If you didn't kill anyone, it'll teach her, killing is only right when VERY nessercary, deciding reasoning is the best choice.

    Overall I'd love to see peoples reactions if Telltale decides to make ... Clementine the leader of the Season 2 group.
    It just. Makes. Sense.
  • edited December 2012
    I felt disappointed that Lee had to die (no game way around it), just like Carley.
    It just shows, like in real life you can't have everything.
    On to season 2, if there is one.
    Getting to follow Clementines story is the popular vote, but where does it start. A few months down the road or a few years. Who does she hook up with Molie, or Omid and Christa (or both). She's stuck in a city of the dead, with no resources to speak of, and I have a strange feeling there will be a new cast in season 2 and Clementine will find them or they will find her, as a walker.

    I really like the whole idea, that your choices should be reflected in clementines personality. It would be a good way to continue the story:)

    *sigh* Okay internet, listen carefully:

    Telltale could not ignore the masses of rabid fans, simultaneously screaming "Is Lee dead!?", otherwise people would have gotten suspicious. I'm not saying he is or not... But if I were you, I would take whatever they say in regards to what happens in-game with a grain of salt.
    ________________________________________

    Now, about me saying whether he is dead or not... :p

    I believe that there are many contributing factors leading up my belief, which is, simply put... Lee is not dead.

    ¿Por qúe?
    1. When Clementine shoots Lee (if she does, obviously), she closes her eyes, hesitates, and - having already took aim at Lee's head - moves her target up and to the left. This goes against her usual shooting technique, so one can only assume that it is intentional.
    2. Lee is demonstrating the symptoms of someone with an infection. This, coupled with shock, starvation, and a severe lack of sleep, could lead to him displaying symptoms similar to that of a bite victim.
    3. We do not explicity see the bite... All we see is a zombie lunging at lee, and a wound after the fact. It could have been a scrape.
    4. In the very end, when Lee falls unconscious for the last time (seemingly from the bite getting worse), the player tends to forget that a very heavy sculpture had fallen on him moments beforehand. Concussion could have contributed to him falling unconscious, and he may not have blacked out otherwise.
    5. We do not see Clementine leave for good. If the bite WAS an issue, she could have amputated it herself. Molly and Vernon (who may have had a change of heart) are still around to help him recuperate.
    6. MOST IMPORTANTLY: In the seconds after we hear the gunshot (if Clem shoots Lee), we still hear Lee's staggered breathing in the background. She DID NOT shoot him.

    So, yeah... Don't count out Lee yet. He is one tough SOB.

    personally there are a few things i would really like: i would like the main protagonist and crew to be from crawford(i'd really like to see what it was like before it all went to shit),i would like to see oberson as a character maybe the antagonist for the first few episodes?, i would like one or more episodes in the winter,having clementine join your crew wouldn't be necessary but it would be nice and a lager group with more deaths per episode
    that is all i can think of right now.
    opinions?
  • edited December 2012
    I had a good discussion with a fellow I convinced to purchase this about playing as Omid and Christa. Its a given that she's pregnant and the potential for continuing Clem's story. Given the cliffhanger at the end of Season 1 I reckon it will be the latter.

    But yeah, playing as Christa for half the series and dealing with both your own child and Clem would be an interesting way to continue the story, potentially changing over to Omid when she's less... eh, movable shall we say? It could also involve the complexities of looking after Clem still.

    We also discussed the possibility of Clem's death. See, my argument against having Clem in Season 2 is that the emotional high point of the series thus far was Lee's death. Killing off the protagonist again (regardless of who they may be) would not be shocking and would be compared constantly to Lee's demise. The only thing that could really hit that point is if Clem died. For Lee as a character this wouldn't have worked because his whole point as a character was to protect her, whilst with Omid and Christa they also have to consider the other new child potentially being brought into the world, not just Clem.

    Aight, I thought of something.

    Let's say we follow a new character instead of playing as Clementine. We start just a little while before where we leave off and it takes place in a refuge occupied by a new cast of characters, most of which are relatively young, say, in college. I'm gonna say we play as a college boy. And I'm gonna say he's relatively insane. But on the outside he's absolutely normal.
    Certain circumstances throughout episode 1 will cause him to slowly go over the edge while entrapped within the camp that he's sharing with the others. The dialogue choices you make don't end up going entirely as you intended and the options you choose aren't exactly what you intend either, in the same fashion as the click-bait during episode 5 when Lee lost his temper with Kenny. It goes on like this until you choose a dialogue option for him and he does something else totally unexpected. For example, when he's talking with his girlfriend and you have the three different choices in dialogue to chat her up with, the mean one, the nice one, and the neutral one, and you choose one. And instead he stabs her.

    Then he kills everyone else in the camp.
    During his killing spree, you have hidden or obvious options or click-bait while the character loses control to try and subdue your own insanity. In the end, you ultimately fail, however, burning down your own camp and everyone inside. This should ultimately send home the message that your choices do not ultimately control the story, they only influence it.

    Later, we pick up right where we left off, and our character sees a little girl with a gun in a wheat field.

    The connection between our new protagonist and Clementine will be one that helps keep him stable, and dialogue options and such make a significant difference when close to and away from Clementine, which let's say we can choose to do.

    Thassit. Just a thought. I also had this other thought that the shadows in the field that Clem saw are actually cannibals that try to eat Clementine, and at their camp they've already captured and eaten Christa and Omid alive, including Christa's unborn fetus which they ripped from her stomach to feast on, and Clem & the new protagonist brutally murder them in a rage. But that seems a bit dark for TWD, so I dunno. :/

    And basically the whole world will burn down with the fiery rage of Clementine fans if that ever happened. :|

    IF Clem dies, and honestly, it may be inevitable, it will be when she's an adult, and she's passing the torch just like Lee did. We'll have just as strong, if not a stronger emotional connection to her than Lee, because we've been with her for so long and saw her grow. It might actually only be strong enough if we're with her for two more seasons.

    I'm gonna have to say, even if it might screw things up, Telltale is eventually gonna have to let her grow. People want to see it. And it'll grant us direct access to her character so we can continue to mold it, giving us access to the strongest emotional connection in the game yet.

    Stop begging... season 2 is already confirmed! :D

    But we can beg for them to release it fast... though not at the cost of epicness!

    to be honest, i kinda wanted an entire new group, so i wouldnt have to worry about clementine dying somewhere in this story. dont get me wrong, clementine was the character i cared for the most, but having to know that theres an enitre season of her potentially dying is worrysome haha. anyways, i think arbitrator has a good idea!
  • edited December 2012
    I think it would be really cool if the main character in season 2 would be a black jewish canadian transgender character.

    The supporting characters could be one that is a lesbian, but she is butch, and is a little person (dwarfism)

    Another could be a gay man, but he's 90 years old, and latino.

    Another character, could maybe play the same role as clementine. This time though it could be a asian girl with downsyndrome who is in love with the trans geneder main character, thus creating alot of conflicts between the 2.

    WOuld be very interesting to say the least, and would break alot of molds of gaming than your sterotypical white attractive, 6 foot bald male model main character.

    Well, it may sound shitty, but people want a main character that they can relate with. Lee was great in the fact you actually could become him and make him yourself.

    Weather it be a male, female, black, white, ect... The character has to be something people can understand.

    Your ideas just wouldn't work in a story that would sell.

    Worst Case Scenario for us and Telltale...

    We find out that Season 2 is basically the story that takes up a 3 month time-frame between episode 1 and 2 from the first season.
