  • Wow they really have so much in common- when they hit their head and fall off a building they die. Whoa...

  • Just to add, in S2 there was a mug with "World's Best Dad" placed the cabin and the other one in Carver's office with "World's Best Boss".

    Just wanted to remind people of this: The mug says "Worlds Best Uncle." It's what Javier can use in his fight with Badger. @Credit to Poogers555

  • In the first gif it looks like Javi is just carelessly jogging away and he accidentally run over Clem and knocked her ass down.

  • Javi's jump was easier, so it's funnier how he failed.

  • "Then this ebony bird // beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, // By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore, // “Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I said, “art sure no craven, // Ghastly grim and ancient Raven // wandering from the Nightly shore— // Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!” // Quoth the Raven // “Nevermore.”

    Edgar Allan Poe lived in Richmond, Virginia. David inhabited his house post-apocalypse after his group moved to Richmond.

  • Huh. I didn't know that. Thanks!

  • David episode 3: "Bad news is bad news, who cares who delivers it?"

    David episode 4: "Kate?! Really?? So glad she sent MY OWN BROTHER to break the news."

  • Forgive me if this has already been brought up before, but I'm pretty sure at the end of Ep 4(?) When Kate decides to be a hero and ends up crashing the truck, her reasons for doing it shift depend on what you said when she asked to come get you. If you say "Come pick us up!" She'll respond like "Okay I'm headed to you now!". But if you tell her "No, stay back and we'll come to you!", as if by the grace of Plot God, her radio suddenly starts acting up and she says "What?! I cant hear you! I'm coming over there!".

    I love how that scene was essentially one big middle finger to the promo art.

  • Yeah, that fakeout was pretty stupid on David's part, but awesomely hilarious nonetheless.

  • I liked the ending, it was very emotional, even when javier screams, but I always use Melton logic and say: when there a thousands of zombies moaning so that is how they stick together so maybe they aren't going after javier because of that one reason. Yeah, it made me sad but I weren't going back to change it because I liked the way javier and clem's went on the bike, even better when clem said to me she's with me wherever I went. The first thing that came to my mind was: I traded you to Conrad, I opened the door for David, I didn't kill Lingard, I shot Joan and you still want to come with me? But yeah I was happy anyway.

  • yeah i know, i for sure thought seeing from the trailer they were going to find her in the beginning and that was why they fought. at least i think that would've been a better(? lack of better term) reason for them to fight.

    I noticed that, too. It distracts me on every playthrough. That's an awful retcon if ever there was one, to try and make Jane look useful/instructive.
    it's not even an optional thing, don't you have to take out a walker's legs during the bridge fight in ep 2?
    also winston was the first one seen doing the leg/knee trick trick, funny enough

    It annoys me how Jane gets credited every time someone takes out the walkers legs. Clem figured it out before she met her, it's not exactly rocket science.

    Also lingard kinda looked better before, don't you think? Suits him more.

    Yep.

    Someone really ought to ask telltale what their intentions were with Jane. Rewrites mean that scene can be taken so many ways. Is she being pragmatic? Is she being cruel? Is she just a HARDCOOOORE feminist shooting off dicks?
    As for the troy and jane "helping" each other thing, that was an odd last minute revelation that really has no place in the current story, probably again due to re-writes.

    Why does no one ever blame Luke for that? Like he's just an innocent schoolboy that got seduced? He's probably older than she is, for chrissake.
    Also Jane may have been crass and selfish about that, but she was right. She nearly died when she did go to help Sarah. She couldn't lift the whole deck off her in time, and chances are Sarah would have been too hurt to escape quickly enough anyway.
    Why not hold responsible the assholes that stopped firing at the zombies and/or didn't jump down to help the struggling kid trapped under rubble?
    Let's not forget that the only one that even seems affected by Sarah's death is Jane. Everyone else actually forgets her until Luke gets an obligatory "list everyone that died" moment in ep 5. Rebecca didn't even ask what happened to her.

    Meh, I think all the Jane hate is pretty funny with how unwarranted it is. Not that I can't see why she would annoy people. But it seems like people are hating on a character that was afflicted by bad writing like everyone else was., but she gets to bear the brunt of all the hate. Why? Because she was introduced later? Because she's too pretty, or because she's a "Stronk female who don't need no man" cliche?

    Agreed, without the previous backstory of Troy being a probable rapist, it seems like it's just there to make Clem question if Jan

  • edited July 2017

    Yeah, that's the full justification for it on TvTropes. Still, she was arguably the closest thing to a singular Big Bad of Amid the Ruins and she more or less catalyzes several deaths leading up to her plan against Kenny, so it's somewhat fitting depending on who you are.

    seriously? yes, she's the one who gave Sarah PTSD, or whatever her issue was. everyone agreed to the plan, Jane didn't force them to do it.
    yes, Jane was the one who dropped the deck on sarah, I forgot that part. maybe she even pushed her?
    Maybe sarah should have stayed inside where it was safe?

    Well, you can clearly see they had certain things in mind for them that may or may not have been downplayed and/or given to other characters, though I have no clue what Breckon was gonna do with Nick, tbh.

    I would hope something redeeming. Sacrificing himself for Clementine sounds really appealing to me.
    I never quite got over the point gun/almost shoot at bleeding little girl scenario. I don't care what kind of shit you went through, that's a dick move and even Nick's apology was kind of half-assed, but he was clearly ashamed of it, just too immature to really own up to it, I think.

    Admittedly, I kinda like certain things that came out of the changes, but that doesn't really negate the value of cohesive storytelling. They could've resolved certain points a lot better than they did.

    I know, obviously. It's a tough call to make though, the line between reality and fiction.
    Currently, I don't think I would change too much. I would have Clem spend much more time with the cabin group fishing, doing day to day stuff before they all start dying. I would probably eliminate kenny entirely and replace his actions/key moments with Carlos. Jane stays, but make her less reluctant to share her past and put her more in the background. Russians maybe get replaced with remnants from Carver's camp. Don't know what the climax would be. Carlos vs Jane? I don't know about that. Nick and Sarah get to live much longer, but I don't know what to do with them either. I would probably have the 400 days characters join the main cast, but I can't see them being much more than cannon fodder.

    Yeah, that was fine. It's just also really apparent that Nick Breckon was just saddled with Jane and had relatively little idea of what to do with her beyond giving her Luke's role so she'd have top billing.

    no problem with that, luke was a schmuck.

    As I said, all the extra attention and perks Jane got is the most obvious symptom of this; always getting chances to interact with Clementine, be heralded as a "tragic" badass by the other characters, being pivotal to several major scenes, or make up for her wrongdoings while other characters (besides Kenny of course, who also qualifies to an extent) generally don't. Luke, Rebecca, and in a weird example Carlos in particular got very little of that in comparison despite being more important characters.

    Well, running time is certainly a factor. Maybe if they were longer they could give secondary characters more screentime. As it is, I guess at some point they though Clem having a big sister type mentor would be a good idea, unfortunately they didn't plan this from the start instead setting up some relationship with luke that goes nowhere. As for action scenes, Carlos would be interesting but Rebecca is pregnant as shit. I don't expect much from her.

    It is very possible for a sueish character to hate or be hated by other characters--the catch is generally that those characters will ultimately be portrayed as being in the wrong, as I also noted about. Rebecca and Kenny are the most obvious examples of the latter example, but Arvo and especially Sarah count for the former categories. Which is really bizzare given that they're two of the nicest and most sympathetic characters in the Season(which I realize isn't saying much, given the "competition"), which just adds to the bullshit. Though Bonnie is definitely a weird zigzag, tbh.

    But they weren't portrayed in the wrong, the season was pretty good at being ambiguous with whether Jane or Kenny were the right choice, IMO. That was one of its few strengths. Come on, let's not pretend Sarah and Arvo didn't do some stupid shit. Sarah pretty much got Reggie killed. And if you wait long enough on the timer in ep 4, she literally gets Clementine killed too. Funny how you never bring that one up. And Arvo, well he lied. He implied there was a lot of food at the house, and they all went there for only two cans. It's not like he said there was a truck to be fixed up or anything, that was luck. Plus his running away on the lake made him look suspicious, and so did his hiding drugs in a trash can. If he had explained properly what he was doing, maybe there wouldn't have been an issue.
    Bonnie though, she intrigues me. You're right about her zig-zagging. It's kind of spooky when she's had this soft, kind of submissive demeanor the whole game and then suddenly she's smoking and speaking to you in a harsh, bitter tone outside.

    Well, considering it involves Kenny and I'm the one who made that, relatively little in terms of schadenfreude. The punchline is viagra, btw.

    Just thought you'd enjoy staring at anything that involves Jane in pain.

    Yeah, well, internal consistency is important for a reason. And ultimately, it's the fact that it felt deliberately staged to make you want to save her despite her supposed badassery--which is exactly the case, as it turns out. All the actiony shit they had her doing up till that point suddenly meant nothing as she could barely even hurt Kenny without fightin dirty. And then, no matter what you do, he always ends up being the one who will kill her if he isn't shot and there is an extra choice to this after he kills her, but not a single one to do so to Jane after the stuff she pulled. Uh huh.

    Look, we've both said already that it was a horribly staged scene. Arguing further just kind of seems pointless, don't you think?
    But again, how is taking out brainless shambling corpses the same as fighting a severely pissed off intelligent man who has nothing left to lose?
    You can hate Jane, but at least don't make up reasons.

    And I'll be the first to admit they should have had a [shoot Jane] option after the fact. It's only fair.
    For a bit of cruel irony, have Clem shoot her in the groin (maybe accidentally as Jane tries to disarm her. Because Clem isn't that cruel), leave her on the ground writhing as walkers come. You know, that would make Troy's death have a point. Ironic/karmic deaths are always fun.

    Jane is hardly the big bad, all the key moments in the season point to it being Kenny. Kenny also long overstayed his welcome afte

  • In episode 3 flashback, Kate says "if they're not alive... just the dead... muertos." Then Javi replies with "Then that's what we'll call them."

    But I decided to translate it. Muertos is just dead in Spanish. They're not calling it anything special.

  • Whoa, really? That's a pretty nice find, congrats.

  • Hey, someone please.. about those broken face animations, I bought ANF via Steam, why don't I have the updates? I'm at this very moment playing the section where Javi gets stabbed on the shoulder and I have the same blank face dude that's been creeping everybody out. Guess I don't have the update on Lingard etc either then.. I'm just wondering who has the updates?

  • Yes, I know that, however you said it's a "dick to players who wanted to LEARN about edgar allen poe's house". If you wanted to learn about his house, you wouldn't be playing a zombie game.
