    I will tell and not show on this occasion because I'm a lazy bastard.


    While captive within the Capricorn Farm compound, Javier and Clementine are locked in the same room. The young man is shocked to learn that Clem is an independent survivor—he has the opportunity to either tell her to keep it that way, to rely on other people when she needs to, or to do what she thinks is best. A message will tell the player that she will remember that.

    Later on, after escaping the antagonistic goat farmers via a negotiation of sorts, Javier, Clementine, a toddler AJ grabbing her hand, and a number of other survivors that were allowed to leave, encounter a herd. Javier has overcome shock from his burn, but he is traumatized and can only focus on the branding on his neck. After a disagreement, a fraction of the group makes a run for a three-story building with an emergency ladder.

    A middle-aged woman is the first to climb, carefully, step by step, determinantly prompted to hurry with curse words by Clementine, depending on our Season Two choices. Javier, still in trauma, climbs second.

    The walkers are closer now, among them a survivor who went with the other fraction of the Capricorn Farms. Still on the ground are Clementine, AJ and a man in his forties wearing a backpack.

    What you told Clementine before comes into play.

    A. "Keep it that way, Clementine."
    Clementine will quickly set position to climb, with AJ in one arm, as Javier watches from the top. The scene applies slow motion. Javier observes as Clementine struggles to throw her one flimsy arm from one bar to the next. The walkers below are close to the man in his fourties. Clementine continues climbing. The walkers reach the man, gather around him, and devour his face, legs, arms, and entrails. The blood-curling scream he barks is enough to shake Clementine, and she loses grip over AJ. The toddler slips between her legs and falls onto the ground, soon overpowered by the walkers. Clementine is in disbelief.

    B. "You have to rely on people, too, sometimes."
    Clementine asks the man for his backpack, which is half-filled with bulky supplies. He quickly obliges, together they place AJ inside the bag, and she puts it on. The toddler's head remains out and he looks in terror. The scene applies slow motion. Clementine has two arms to climb and she does so quickly. Too quickly. Clem misses a bar and leans backwards, barely managing not to fall. The boy slips out of the backpack and bounces on the ground, screaming desperately. The walkers gather around AJ and devour him like a prize to rip open. Clementine is emotionally destroyed, and the man in his forties survives.

    C. "Do what you think is best and you'll make it."
    Clementine will decide to climb immediately or ask for the backpack depending on your ending of Season Two. She will choose the former if you had the alone or reject family ending, whereas she will choose the latter if you had the accept family, Wellington or Kenny ending.

    D. Silence.
    Derives to "do what you think is best and you'll make it."


    Holy shit, I revealed a freaking plot point.

    I'm getting fired soon.

    But yes, @Skye19, you need to stop. It would be unfair for everybody to be deprived of a thread to talk about Season Three just because of your excessive use of GIFs.

    Instead of asking the mods not to close the thread for breaking the rules again, just don't break the rules. Simple.

    Also the mods have been very generous in giving you countless warnings about this. That's not something everyone has the luxury of getting.

  • It's not that we dont want you to have fun; This thread is made for the S3 release. When people keep going off topic, things get out of hand. Like I said, there is this thread available where you can post whatever off topic comments you would like.

    Not that I want to give her the idea that it is okay to do so, but technically, the official Episode 1 Waiting Thread comes this Tuesday so it's not like locking the thread at this point would be a severe penalty.

    On a tangential note, I'm planning for the actual Episode 1 Waiting thread to have more strict moderation like normal waiting threads do. Season 3 is a weird exception as we usually don't do super early waiting threads. Considering that news for a Telltale game is not super frequent prior to release, having early waiting threads encourages lots of filler discussion, which I don't think will be a problem going into the Ep 1 thread since we are super close to release and have a somewhat tangible timeframe for when the game releases. On the bright side, it did eventually give us the idea of making Pre-Season News threads, which will be the new norm going forward prior to when we get our Episode 1 Waiting Thread up 4-8 weeks (ideally) before a series premieres.

    The Season 3 waiting thread was a bit weird and we don't intend to recreate general waiting threads like this for future series prior to an Episode 1 thread, but to be fair, that's partially on us for making it in the first place.

  • You are allowed to have more than one gif, but there are various rules of thumb; Basically, ...

    1. Don't let gifs be the primary way you talk to people
    2. Don't be excessive with gifs - keep in mind mobile users will have to scroll more, and it can slow down mobile browsers too
    3. When people say that there is indeed too much of a good thing, that applies to gifs as well - use them sparingly

  • And don't forget the Forum Lounge threads!

    I was normally planning on doing that, but the Batman thread so far didn't take off too much. I'm not opposed to the idea but I think we need to either revise it or find a way to make people stick around. Granted, Batman's community is not as large as the Walking Dead community, but I think we probably need to revise some of the ideas.

    So, yeah, now's probably a good time to give a heads up - this thread was a bit unique and different due to how early it was, but the Episode 1 Waiting Thread is going to have our normal rules and moderation.

    That means, we're going to start flagging more posts if they are off topic, over using gifs, or filler posts made by people posting just for the sake of posting.

    Also, another problem I've noticed as of late - people in multiple forums are starting to over use large text. We don't mind it being used in small amounts or for good reasons (like labeling different sections of a post), but I want people to stop using it just because they can as it makes threads harder for users to follow. It can be visually distracting, and it makes mobile users have to scroll more.

    If you want to post a Twitter hashtag, type a space before your hashtag so your text does not get large, like this for example:

    #WalkingDeadNewFrontier

    ...versus:

    WalkingDeadNewFrontier

    As you can see, it makes posts cluttered and distracting for people to read if it's not used for a good reason.

  • That's gonna be mine, Daze!

    I kinda feel bad considering I haven't waited half as long as some of you guys, but who cares, I'm taking the first reply!

  • I don't know. Javier looks he has a third degree burn.

    Third-degree burn
    Excluding fourth-degree burns, third-degree burns are the most severe. They cause the most damage, extending through every layer of skin.

    There is a misconception that third-degree burns are the most painful. However, with this type of burn the damage is so extensive that there may not be any pain because of nerve damage.

    Depending on the cause, the symptoms third-degree burns can exhibit include:

    • waxy and white color
    • char
    • dark brown color
    • raised and leathery texture
    • blisters that do not develop

    Without surgery, these wounds heal with severe scarring and contracture. There is no set timeline for complete spontaneous healing for third-degree burns.

    It's possible the skin around the burn flesh would hurt, and that getting branded [particularly in traumatic circumstances] might make him go into shock, but after 3 hours he might be managing okay. Also if you think about the fight or flight response, that might change his mindset in a dangerous situation and he might not feel the pain so much.

    Also Javier has family, with possibly one younger sibling around Clem's age if he and the girl shown in the recent screenshot are related. So, he might think twice for a teen and a toddler in trouble than guy with no family ties.

    And you're not mad are you? Because I was only being jokey before with the thingy on the Javy douchebag thing ;_; I'm sorry. The ladder sequence is cool with all the dialogue choices, and the idea of carrying A.J in a backpack like a substitute for those baby carriers.

    If he was burned in the neck with a cow brander less than three hours ago, I would find it unrealistic if the thought of helping Clementine and AJ before himself even crossed his mind!

  • Man, I really hope we don't play as clementine only once during episode 1 for the flashbacks, and the rest of the season we play as Javier. That would sort of be unfair.

    Nah, TT will reveal the answers to the questions that we really want to know ("where's Kenny?" "Where's Jane" "Is Lee really dead?") towards the end of the season, to keep us engaged and encourage players to finish the whole season.

    I am willing to bet (fake) money that towards the end of the game, when the tensions and emotions are high, Clem's flashbacks crossfade with reality or something.

    Less than a thousand words and there's already a plot hole! Just have Javier offer his help and Clementine decline.

    the idea of carrying A.J in a backpack like a substitute for those baby carriers.

    I hadn't even thought about it that way. Survivors have to get crafty, though! Cut a couple of holes on the corners of the backpack and AJ has himself a fancy baby carrier!

  • Everything you said could be valid points as to what might happen in S3.

    Though, Telltale did already confirm that Lee Everett is dead and will stay dead.

  • I will be so infuriated if Clem's just a glorified sidekick and we only play as her in flashbacks.

    Not exactly sure if this has been posted yet but I just came across an interesting article. “The Walking Dead: A New Frontier”

  • I don't think we'll only play as Clementine during the flashbacks for the entire season - perhaps just during episode 1 so we know what happened exactly. I mean... everyone wants to know and it's better than just offing Kenny and Jane in five minutes and being done with it.

    That said, I doubt they can stretch one giant flashback taking up half the screentime along five episodes so we'll probably get to play as her in present time too, just not during the first episode.

    It'd feel really odd if they just threw her away like that. Besides a vocal minority, Clementine is still the most popular character and their poster child.
