  • It looks that way because he was murdered in an art gallery that had impeccable lighting and backdrops

    I think it should be worded as it being a shot of someone being dead, not of a dead guy (since there are plenty of photos of dead

  • Who the hell said "poor telltale"? I'm just done with pathetic people getting hard over some wannabe drama. Do you have any proof at all that the pic was used with Ill intent or not ? Or are you just pulling this shit out your arse ? Don't accuse me of "targeting" sensitive customers when your just "targeting" telltale over something that could be a goddamn mistake.

    Telltale does something wrong and you're targeting the customers for pointing out something that they did wrong? Might as well le

  • It is your job to review games before you greenlight them, it's your job to make sure youre not stealing when adding content to your game, its your job to make sure a real fucking dead guy isnt in your game that CHILDREN PLAY. It's hardly a mistake but just laziness and poor development. Quit defending them.

  • No I will continue to defend them bc it's right. K, lets play your dumb game for a sec and say this was done on purpose. Let's say the person who used the image knew who it was and was like 'whatever, I don't care', are you really going to condemn an entire company and people trying to do their job ? If this was done for hateful/hurtful reasons, I don't want those univolved to be dragged through the ringer. To be honest I'm confused that you keep saying that a 'picture was stolen' as if this is some artist original work ? If you wanna assume that telltale did this for political reasons and are filled with allies of the shooter your bloody mad mate. Again I'm hopeing this is handled quick, the pic is edited out and I will leave telltale sort this out themselves.

  • When contacted by Gamasutra, a Telltale Games representative responded with the following statement:

    "An update to the game has been submitted this morning that will be removing the image across all platforms. We regret this incident occurred, and we are taking appropriate action internally to ensure that we continue to maintain our high standards in Production and Quality Assurance."

  • No one thinks Telltale is "allies with the shooter", what are you smoking?

  • Good. No excuses, just an apology and the removal of the image. They are doing exactly what they should do.

  • B&H gold, what are you smoking.

    No one thinks Telltale is "allies with the shooter", what are you smoking?

  • So you think that Telltale shouldn't be called out for this? That there should be no consequences?

    B&H gold, what are you smoking.

  • I never said they shouldn't be called out at all actually or that there shouldn't be consequences. I want this to be handled, but I want I want telltale to handle it not a bunch of people on the internet. Don't know if you know yet but telltale has recently responded, here's what was said - "An update to the game has been submitted this morning that will be removing the image across all platforms," a representative said. "We regret this incident occurred, and we are taking appropriate action internally to ensure that we continue to maintain our high standards in Production and Quality Assurance.". - For me that's enough and I hope people just drop it now.

    So you think that Telltale shouldn't be called out for this? That there should be no consequences?

  • Finally. Good.
    Remove it and move on.

    this was a pretty stressful day for me

  • I know, I’m just a little surprised they haven’t said their piece on the matter.

    The mods don’t really have anything to do with this, since they know as much as we do in this matter.

  • First the thing with the ambassador, now this?

    Telltale is going out of control.

    This makes me think what other images they made by editing in other photos together. Usually these art pictures are made by hand to match the comic-book style.

    Excuse me for potentially being an insensitive ignoramus, but this almost seems comical in how big of a fuck up this is. Heck, when I looked up images of the incident myself, I initially thought it was a weird scene from The Office or something.

    However, knowing it was a real thing that happened, I can definitely see why everyone would be upset. I can also somewhat see how a random Telltale employee could make that mistake, so as long as they collectively apologize and remove it from the game, I say we can just move on.

    As unlikely as that is to happen.
  • They already apologized and submitted a patch to remove it.

    Batman on PS4 has been updated. I can confirm the body is no longer visible. The image of the brokerage has been zoomed in, and you can now only see the open vault and Harley's symbol.

    Wow this is disturbing. How easy would it have been if they had just used a stock photo? To be fair though, the image they used DOES look like a staged shot, but that would mean that they just took the photo without asking for permission. I wonder how many other "stock-photos" they've stolen for their games. I bet they just searched "Murdered man" on Google images or something. Nice work Telltale.

    Its becoming more and more evident by each game they release that they don't give a crap. Sad.

  • Probably googled "dead lying man"

    That's what I was thinking. I really hope nothing bad happens to Telltale. Really hate to see it. But if it does they have to deal with it, cause at the end of the day they're professionals and should've did some research.

  • Ah. There it is.
    It's obviously the first picture. It has the most "realistic" proportions of the human face, and the third picture also seems a bit too real. Doesn't quite look like a Telltale engine model.

  • How can you be surprised by that? If they stand on the edge of a dug grave, do you think they would jump in it voluntairely? I think it was obvious that they were going to apologize and 'taking appropriate actions'.

    I’m surprised they even acknowledged it.

  • Can’t say i’m surprised. Not the first time Telltale fucked up, it won’t be the last...or is it?

  • Well technically you do “watch” Telltale’s games these days. 90% of their games are cutscenes

  • Why would they even use an image of a person, couldn't they just modify one of their own models?

  • That depends on the dev team really, for faster development time the artists would just take like a stock photo and edit it to whatever. Unfortunately for Telltale they used a certain photo...

  • Knowing Telltale’s history, they usually like to stay silent and hope that it’ll just go away on its own.

    Well, Silence is a valid option.

  • It was aimed towards the "High standard of Quality Assurance". Because when I think of QA, I don't think of several glitches, lost/corrupted saves, choices not carrying over between episodes, poor performance on hardware that should run them as smooth as butter (talking about their games throughout the last 5 or so years at least), and well... shit like this happening in the first place.

  • I'm sure this was unintentional or a coincidence mate

    You coincidentally put a picture of a real dead guy in your game? ugh, i know right??? I HATE when that happens!
