The Nine Percent

edited February 2014 in The Wolf Among Us

I'm curious. When I decided not to beat down Beast, I just hoped I wouldn't have to start the scene over. I felt bad hitting him because, although he misunderstood the whole situation, I and Beauty have been lying to him, in the midst of ladies getting killed...

I didn't think it would be among 'player choices'. I hadn't figured it was that important. Anyone knows why it would be?

  • Bigby and Beast are friends I believe, so beating him down would cause resentment from both him and Beauty. Which would lead to difficulties latter on in the case.

  • But why make a pivotal choice here? Why not for Gren and the Woodsman- I know they're not friends, but it was an abrupt shift when you have a choice not to beat the crap out of someone who wants to fight you, lol Why not make Tweedle... the one you can interrogate a pivotal choice?

    Well, you got a choice to give Faith your money, and we all know how lasting an impact that made... Somewhat...

  • Bigby literally would have told Beast the truth. It really doesn't matter much, you'll still fight Beast. Eventually he ends up realizing his mistake.

  • I'm guessing they're keeping track of when players choose to have Bigby act on his animal instincts as the "big bad wolf" and when they choose to have him be more of a reformed and civilized member of the community. It'll probably come up toward the end of the series, like how the guy in Episode 5 of The Walking Dead criticized Lee for his decisions throughout the game.

    Either that, or they just want to make players feel bad about hitting a guy who's already down like they did with Andy St. John. Although honestly, the two situations don't seem equivalent since I don't think most players wanted to hurt Beast in the first place.

  • Nah, I gave that extra punch to Beast because it'll teach him not to fly off the handle when someone tries to talk reason to him. Fables like Beast only understand physical force.

  • Would you punch your best friend twice if he wants to fight you because of a misunderstanding? That is really ridiculous, he feels ashamed for even starting the fight faster than the fight began.

    Nah, I gave that extra punch to Beast because it'll teach him not to fly off the handle when someone tries to talk reason to him. Fables like Beast only understand physical force.

  • Actually, I get that. The first and second episode previews both revealed Bigby's super-transformed state. I did not enjoy that crazy guy listing my faults- although I really only had one, with choosing Carla over Doug.

    Still, it's relatively easy to choose not to be the Big Bad Wolf, although Beast was annoying, and Tweedle-whoever I would have beat up, but I didn't want Blackbeard to like me (Because I personally don't like Blackbeard lol)

  • It was a pretty honest misunderstanding, too...

    Personally didn't know was choice i was in nine percent and didn't want to hit him at all knew it was my fault for getting myself in this situation and how it looked wouldn't blame him so kind of said to myself yes i deserve this and he doesn't deserve to be beat up.

  • I hit him. Enjoyed it, too.
    He deserved it, going all apeshit like that. If he was willing to listen to reason, then maybe I wouldn't have had teach him a lesson.
    Maybe I'm just an asshole. :v

    I'd go with the latter.

  • Bluebeard*

    Also, why would choosing Carley over Doug be a fault?

  • Huh, choosing whether to spare Gren's arm wasn't a major choice? I guess you're right. Odd. I feel like ripping someone's arm off should have a greater consequence than punching someone in the face. I guess we'll see.

  • In the comic, Bigby and Beast don't hate each other or anything. They're what you can call friends, but it's not like they say "Hey, wanna go grab some food and chill at my apartment?" It's more of a "How've you been, see ya later" deal. He does teach Beast how to be the sheriff when Bigby steps down from the job. And when Beauty has her daughter Bliss, Bigby is with a bunch of other Fables waiting. Snow seems to have a good relationship with Beauty, since Snow's cubs refer to Beauty as "Aunt Beauty with her little baby Bliss". There was a scene where tensions at the farm were high because of dark magic, and it was messing with Bigby's and Beast's self control, and they got into a big fight with eachother in monster forms but both Snow and Beauty walked into it and broke it up (One of my favorite scenes throughout the comic, lol) But whatever, I'm just rambling about what I know.

  • Well... I try to make good choices cause the pig and the prostitute made Bigby think about his "status" - the Big Bad Wolf and all the Fables are scared of him.

    That's why I didn't rip that douche's arm off and that's why I didn't beat Beast. I try to not use violence and be less of a jerk - I feel like it's gonna have an impact on the future. coughsnowcough I really ship the two and am gonna be so fucking disappointed if TTG kills her AGAIN because SHIT MAN THEY GOTTA BE TOGETHER.

  • I agree 100%
