Siding with Beast - "Asshole choice"?
So yeah, I sided with Beast. Not in spite of Beauty, but because I wanted to be just and honest. Plus I was more interested in Beast than Beauty. Apparently I am part of a minority in doing that, since very few told Beast the truth, it seems. This apparently meant that no matter what reasoning I had in siding with him, it does not matter.
This choice, made as early as Episode 1 Faith, seems to function on a white knight basis. Side with the girl and you get nice things, side with the guy and you never hear the end of it. Beast barely does anything to express his gratitude or respect for Bigby's honesty. Even worse, Beauty refuses to let it go, ceaselessly bitching of how I have wronged her.
Is this what Telltale writing has come down to? A percieved "canon" choice? How railroady can you get with this mentality? Are there really only two paths in here, too? Redeeming Bigby and Asshole Bigby? Be a white knight and you are praised, be a bro and you receive nothing but insults? Why are they doing this?
Is the community seriously fine with this decrease in choice consequence quality?
