Can Telltale fix this game?

I have played the first one on the iPhone, and although it's a good adventure game, keeps to classic point and click play that was made famous all those years ago, but the language in it does make me cringe.. I've got nothing against bad language, but it seemed that in episode 1, they rely on the language way too much to boost laughs when a perfectly good, witty and playable game is already present.

I hope Telltale get to throw in some of their own formulas and turn an average game into a great one! I have every faith in them.:D

  • In order to get the game on an actual store shelf or published on XBOX Live/PSN/Wii Shop Channel, a game has to be screened by the ESRB. The only exception, that I'm aware of, is for XBOX Live Indie games. Since TTG self-publishes and releases digitally, they don't go thru the ESRB process for their games. Only when the games are published by a third party, such as when Atari published Sam and Max Seasons 1 and 2 for Wii, do they finally go thru ESRB, but that is usually done by the publisher, not the developer. This is due to pretty much any retailer not wanting to sell anything that hasn't got that logo on it to avoid the headache of some moronic parent suing because they didn't understand that something like "Hector: Badge of Carnage" meant it is not for Little Timmy, the 5 year old kid that starts spewing swear words because they were in "that dirty game" and he "couldn't possibly" have learned it from anywhere else.

    So, its more of an appeasement thing than an actual regulatory thing.

    If you want me to prove it, I challenge you to go to your local retailer (Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart) and find me a computer game or video game on their shelves that does not have an ESRB rating on it somewhere. Chances are, you won't.

    I'd hate to see the game's nadgers cut off just so it's fine for kiddies to play. The barefaced bawdiness of it is what I find so appealing.

    I think Telltale has proven that they're willing to step out beyond their usual customer segment with BttF and JP by the looks of it, so keeping the game as it is, and just making sure to promote it as what it is should be enough. No need to cut anything out or censor the game. This could be their chance to reel in some of the adventure gamers who thinks their previous titles have been a bit lacking on the puzzle side.
