    I'm starting to say aint a lot. o_o I don't know which character says it but recently im saying it ALOT.

  • I know that Luke says it quite a bit, I havent heard kenny say it in awhile, maybe i just don't notice, but i remember Luke saying a lot of phrases i picked up, when he talked to Clem at Carvers camp, he says "All right listen, we aint got much time okay? i followed y'all here best i could, havent had a nights rest since y'all got nabbed... and well this is the first time i got the chance to talk to somebody, theyre everywhere okay, they got guards watchin' everything, theres a herd of lurkers just south of us. its bigger than i ever seen around these parts. yeah i heard folks talkin about that but that aint so okay? its gonna hit this place i know it is... i dont know when, but its comin' and its gonna be soon, see ive been lookin for places to.. to get y'all free

  • I started usin' the n' alot that Nick uses :P but just in messages not Irl :)
    And i did start saying jesus alot :P

  • Ive started saying y'all even though no one in England ever says that. I picked it up off Luke.

  • I caught myself saying "Stay lucky" the other day. After I realized it, I almost cried.

  • I have a friend named Nick who plays this game. I literally tell him every other day that he is becoming a danger to the group, or ask him where the fuckin' river is. It never gets old for me haha.

    I have also started saying y'all, too, which kind of sounds weird considering my accent.

  • I find myself using the term "shitbird" more often these days. Feels good, man.

  • I'm English and due to this game (and others I suppose) I use American phrases and pronunciation. My friends at University tell me off for it. Ahah

  • Two words: goose pimples

  • "Y'all" mostly. I try not to say "ain't" because it gets on my nerves.

    One of my friends also plays the game, so everytime people say something offensive or important, I say "He/She will remember that."

  • Like it?

    Goddamit

  • I picked up "ain't" and I add "-in" instead of "-ing." Like, runnin, sleepin, watchin, stuff like that. It doesn't really sound weird when I say it, considering I'm an American.

  • I started to use the phrase fuck ! fuck! fuck! FUCK ! FUCK

  • Haha me too!

    I'm starting to say aint a lot. o_o I don't know which character says it but recently im saying it ALOT.

  • Ain't it good that I start pickin' ain't for one of my phrases, also I say Damnit, Jesus Christ and Shit a shit ton.

  • I cuss more lol, and say "ain't" and "y'all" more, as the game takes place in the South.

  • Me too o.o

  • Am I the only one who hates looking at goose bumps. Urh...

  • Well i've been sounding southern every now and then (randomly) and i've used 'shitbird' and 'asswipe' a lot. I've also said ain't and nuthin' a lot as well...
    This isn't a phrase at all, but i've noticed every now and then i'll walk like Clementine does... I don't know how to describe it, but I guess it's very awkward. I caught myself in the act yesterday...

  • heh, with my accent shitbird sounds weird.... By "walk like Clementine", do you mean when you control her with the Mouse/keyboard/contoller, or when she walks in cutscenes?

    Here's a few speech phrases from my Luke dictionary I picked up:

    Bein’

    Movin'

    Gotta

    Stayin’

    Goin’

    Outta

    ‘em

    ‘cause

    Talka

    ‘Scuse

  • I'm not sure if there's even a difference :P But pretty much when you control her, the weird posture she has...

    XD It's for fanfic stuff, although I really get conflicted because I'm always trying to decide 'now I do write it the word correctly or by how he says it?' And then all the stupid 'in' and 'ing' at the ends of words like 'going' or 'being' gets really confusing because he doesn't always use them in the subtitles at times, and I'm just staring at a sentence for a couple minutes just 'thinkin' or thinking?' if it'll be too confusing for the reader, until I'm left a trembling sobbing heap on the floor in need of whiskey from a jar.

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to have a serious Luke revision when I'm done. Don't even get me started on Nick or Kenny, they do it too! T_T

    Luke dictionary LOL.

  • has anyone else noticed how much Luke says "okay"? Because I've started using it a lot lol. And I've used "swear" more than once... even though I swear a shit ton.

    "JESUS ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!"

    I occasionally have "..." moments too.

    Otherwise, not really. My normal Pennsylvania German accent drops the G's at the end of words anyway, so that doesn't really count.

  • They were awesome books! IDK why don't like them!

  • Not much of a phrase or anything, but I tend to speak to myself a lot more often. I mean before I spoke to myself quite a lot, but ever since The Walking Dead it has increased.

  • Wat?

    They were awesome books! IDK why don't like them!

  • ,Goosebumps= the book series by R.L. Stine?

  • Peachy.

  • English actually still isn't my first language, so pretty much everything English rubs off on me a bit. Even after 20 someodd years.

    My English spelling/pronouncation takes a long walk across the entire English speaking world at the moment.
