    Can we conclude that Nate is bat guano crazy?

    The Wyatt segment doesn't exactly make it clear who instigated the chase. Five stories told over 400 Days in a ridiculously short episode really hurts the choice, and that's the gameplay.

    Haven't seen where Season 2 starts yet, so I'm afraid I can't answer that for you. :rolleyes:

    Edit:

    Also, posted this in its own thread, but it really should be here. I couldn't figure out how to delete it. It's my first post on this forum so I knew I'd screw something up.

    Anyway, here ya go:

    400 Days left me sad...

    Don't worry, I'm not going to rag on 400 Days. I didn't enjoy it as much as Season 1, but I see it for what it is: a teaser of things to come.

    I'm sad because, even though he voted to go Vince, hands down my favorite character from 400 Days, did not end up going with the rest of the group. I can only guess this is because Russell, the worthless little turd I wish Nate had killed, threw a temper tantrum and refused to go and Vince, stand up guy that he was, had made a point about not leaving anyone behind.

    I have never replayed any of these episodes because I like the sense of not being calculating with my choices (and not feeling like their outcomes were preset by me), but I am sorely tempted to replay this one just because of that.

    Then again, part of the fun of this game is the often tragic nature of it and the feeling of weight on decisions.

    400 Days forces you to make the biggest choices without much info, no emotion, and no way to expand on that any further.

    400 Days was good, no question about it and the idea was great: show some people before they got together. Which begs the question: WHY did they get together? Some might be VERY wary of strangers (Russell comes to mind) so why would ´they (Russell) trust anyone? Bonnie struck me as quite needy and ready to hook up with anything that wasn't dead, but the others?

    As so many said, the episodes in 400 Days are way too short. It took me some time to get into it, since there were a lot of stuff I the player couldn't know anything about, but the characters apparently did. Like, why did Bonnie, Dee and Leland actually run from the people with the flashlights? Just because Dee said so? I know who they were (hi Roman, you psychopathic POS!), but that didn't occur to me until I played Shel, which was the last one.

    There was a lot missing from this, but considering I got it free, I can't complain.

    Just one question though: Is it really possible to get everyone to come with you? It seems like no matter what I do, either Russell or Vince stays behind?

    I'm smooth.
  • I still to this day to not know what a hoopy even is, is it a type of car, I don't know.

  • Why try to get a perfect ending??? It's TWD!!! You'll probably meet up with the characters you left behind in some way like when you played Russell's story if you hid from Nate you were reunited in a sick way with Doug/Carly. We already know there is never a perfect ending just ask clementine.

  • I didnt like any of the new characters, too boring. None of them were like Lee, Kenny, Larry, St john brothers etc...

  • I read on the Walking Dead wiki that it's possible to hear an alternative version of Becca's mocking comment about Leland and Bonnie during the monologue (when Becca states that Leland let her "run off alone"). Apparently it's possible to hear a dialogue where Becca states that it was Leland who left Bonnie (the person who wrote about it on the wiki also stated that if Leland left Bonnie they remained friends, but if it was Bonnie who left Leland then they were in a relationship for a while). Is it true that you can actually get Leland to be the one to leave Bonnie? Because I haven't been able to get anything other than the "let you run off alone" dialogue (if Bonnie was truthful) or Becca mocking Bonnie about lying (if Bonnie lies).

    Just finished this.

    Anyone else think it was seriously creepy when you stayed in the car as Wyatt, get up from retrieving the keys, and before he himself notices anything, you see that truck with those lights through the fog? That freaked me out.

    And yeah, in mine, Becca says that Leland ran off and left Bonnie alone.

    Also, in my stats, only me and 30% of players chose to sacrifice Danny.O_o

  • yea there definitely should've been a way around killing her. I could tell it was her character model, so I tried not swinging the bar, only to die. It was frustrating to say the least.

  • Just played the game...Loved it, and going through these comments now. I love Nate haha. I'd like to see him be more of an 'anti-hero' than a villain in the future.

    Nate just does what he does. Whether that means killing innocent people or helping some walking appetizer on the road, he just does

  • a hoopty is basically a "ghetto" busted car

    I still to this day to not know what a hoopy even is, is it a type of car, I don't know.
