Telltale Autumn Sale

Are You Still Keeping Your Decisions?

I've sworn to keep the decisions I make and do nothing else until the season is over, but this episode really messed with me. I was devastated when I learned that Nick could have been saved, but I'm still facing my consequences.

What about you? Did any specific thing really mess with you afterwards?

  • My boy Alvin! I was sooo tempted to go back and save him from dying but like you, I've sworn to never rewinding my original play through.

    In my first playthrough Alvin and Nick both bit the dust and I promised myself I wouldn't go back and reverse it but... I did. I feel like I've cheated myself :/

    The only thing I regret on my playthrough was asking Kenny to take the shot when Carver had Alvin. That scene messed with my head because I first I was like "YES! You got him!" and then he got back up :(

    Exactly!!!! I wasn't sure to press the "Shoot him" button until Kenny said "I have a shot!". Walter was a nice guy... And Alvin... Carver, you gonna pay this!

    EDIT: Oh, and I won't trust anymore at Kenny's aiming skills. ¬¬

  • Alvin will probably die in ep 3 anyway.

    I kinda regret my decision of saving Nicks's life. I don't trust him and i think he's gonna get even more people killed. I saved his life because i promised my good old friend uncle Pete to watch on him, before he sacrificed himself to safe my life. RIP uncle Pete, you'l be missed!

  • You should go back and have them die again or the rest of the story will be built on a lie....

  • Why would you want somebody in your group dead? Nick is a good guy...but he's an idiot

    Yeah I was sure Kenny was going to save Alvin, although I was panicking like mad during the whole thing haha.

  • Pete's watching you. Starting to feel the same way about Nick as I did with Ben, but since I promised Pete I'm screwed.

  • Like Ben!

  • Yup, I actually got lucky with my choices this time around. Only Walter died in the lodge. Nick and Alvin are safe. I stopped Kenny from shooting, because normally when he thinks he's got things under control or he's being a badass, he fucks it up. Thank god my past experience with him was right.

  • Actually i think of replaying beacouse i got sooooo excited for Kenny that i missclicked and didnt hug him XD

  • I believe rewinding takes away a huge chunk of what makes this series so great. Tough decisions. This games really makes you think. And if you're rewinding due to consequences, you're losing what makes this game so unique. This is why I keep all decisions no matter what.

  • Same here, but I am definitely sticking with my decision.

  • Ya, you can't rewind life. I kinda wish one of them would've died in my playthrough because it seemed kind of weird without an important character dying.

    Thankfully, I aced the Episode and Nick and Alvin both got out of it alive. It sucks that Nick died in your game, Higgs :(

    But yeah, I live with my choices even when I screw up. I thought I failed 400 Days by only getting Vince and Bonnie to go, but kept that save anyway and now I'm sure as heck glad I did. Even dropping Ben, what I consider my greatest regret throughout the entire series so far, I kept, as hard as it was not to rewind. Correcting your "mistakes" takes away a bit of this game's magic. It cheapens it.

  • Hey, he got Johnny, and he didn't totally miss Carver.

    That being said, I told him not to shoot because I remembered how good his aiming was in Season One.....

    What I usually do is stick by my choices no matter what, but then I go through a second time and kind of... "clean up" on a separate save.

    I think the only thing I'll be changing this episode in a second save is taking blame for the photo. I felt so bad when Sarah got all "wait, aren't we friends"? I sort of feel bad for her, I actually know someone who has panic attacks often, so I can empathize with her.

  • Oh yeah I agree, I won't be changing my main playthrough at all. I must live with the decisions I have made, it's more fun for me that way. That being said I do have a second playthrough where I make good decisions.

    Same here, but I am definitely sticking with my decision.

    I know how that feels like, i decided to let that fucking shitbird Ben die in Season1 and i don't regret it. But in Season2 it is different. Pete's last wish for me was to watch on Nick. Pete was the only person that trusted me when we first met the cabin group (exept maybe Luke) and he sacrificed himself to save my life, i won't forget that. I just had to fulfill his last wish, even though i don't like Nick.

    I was thinking about deleting my save so I could save Alvin, but you've convinced me to keep going with my decisions. Plus, who knows, maybe it will end up being more interesting without him, depending on how it affects the story/characters/situations. I could totally see them killing him off in the next episode anyway on their intrepid quest to rip everyone's hearts out. But you're right, it's all part of the game's magic.

  • What happens if U saved Pete?

  • I was pretty pissed that Walter dies no matter what, I really liked that guy. I was hoping for some nice tension between him and Nick later on too.

  • Ben never directly killed someone.

    Nick didn't mean any harm but he's a dumbass. In mine I never really got along with him and after he shot the guy on the bridge I went off on him whenever I had the option to. But Pete was a great guy and I did promise him I'd keep an eye on Nick so I feel like I have to try and help him now.

  • He was bit, he dies anyway and gets attacked by walkers again so you can get away shortly after you save him. I promised him I'd keep an eye on his idiot nephew before he died though.

  • I never rewind my decisions on my first playthrough, that'd ruin the spirit of the game for me. I do play through a second time and make sure things work out though.

    That said I did rewind during this episode only to talk to Nick before going into the building. I was angry at the moron for shooting the guy on the bridge so I ended up walking right past him and thought I could talk to him on the way out but then the Walkers attacked. Everyone survived for me in the cabin so that worked out too.

    By "tension" Do you mean you want them to get together?

    Sorry if i sound like an idiot.

  • Kenny's aiming was bad in Season One? I don't remember, All i know i keep crying because Kenny is back...I keep watching that gif were he hugs Clem & makes me so happy he's alive, I am filled with so much joy i keep crying XD

  • I'm doing 2 saves, one with my original decisions, good and bad ones (Sorry Alvin) and another ''perfect'' playtrough where i make the decisions that i think are the right ones and save everyone.

    Pete's suffering from bite in the truck. He decides to win Clem some time for escape (Pete's dead anyway), attracting zombies to himself. Later that morning Clem meets up with Nick and rest of the group and finds out that Pete has been shot in the head, not eaten by zombiez.

    Poppycock! I love Ben, He looks like shaggy from Scooby-Doo, How could you hate someone like that :D

    I know, I'm so happy, and i'll be there for Kenny every step of the way. In some ways, he's more broken than I could have imagined... I'm happy to see him, but I feel so sorry for him at the same time. He never really got over what happened in Long Road Ahead.

    Also, Kenny wasn't particularly a bad shot, but he wasn't a good fighter, and I just assumed he wasn't a good shot. Then again, everyone in Season 1 always hit their target except when it was important. I like it now that they miss a lot more in Season Two.

  • Unfortunately no, I just meant anyone who could be saved survived. I think Walter dies no matter what.

  • On each and every episode I play, I do my first-playthrough without changing a thing, and sometimes I go back out of curiosity to see some alternatives for the big choices, but no matter what I always stay with my original save when the next episode comes out.

    But really I should stop doing that, it really ruins it when you realise that in some sequences you didn't really have any influence. This game is good at making you feel like most of your decisions matter, but once you play through it again, it just takes that magic away. Next time I think I just won't go back on my choices...

  • You would think 2 years into the Apocalypse, That everyone would have a good aim by now XD

    I'm glad i'm not the only one who can't stop crying, I feel so stupid right now but i don't care, I hope Kenny lives through the Season, Same as Luke & Nick, Sarah too.

    Yeah Nick has way more skills then Ben, he jut uses them at the wrong time (I.e he noscoped a guy from the opposite end of a bridge!....but it was a good guy -_-)

    Why would you want somebody in your group dead? Nick is a good guy...but he's an idiot
