I want to buy this game, but...

I'm concerned about all the crap I'm hearing about bugs. I'm making this thread as an added comment to TellTale games, asking them to please fix this game. I won't spend money if the game doesn't work properly. I don't want random choices, I want my own to continue on. Otherwise there's no point in making choices at all. And disappearing saves? Come on.

Assuming I did want to waste my money I wouldn't even know which platform is the safest bet, they all seem to have critical issues. Please for the love of god fix this game so I can buy it.

To the users: How prevalent are these issues? Every single player? Only a few? Any specific triggers? I've been watching a let's play on it (shout to Pewdie!) and really like the story driven gameplay. But the things I'm hearing aren't very hopeful.:(

  • i have the steam version and it has been fine for me, the ps3 seems to have some save issues from what i have heard, and i think there are some issues with the pc if you use an xbox 360 pad, but i would recommend buying the steam version as it is auto updated and you get the season pass and from my experience the worst "bug" is the odd model/texture being invisible for a little while, but no game breakers
  • I've clocked just under 50 hours on this game on the PC and the worst bug I've ever encountered was a character disappearing for a brief scene or two (which admittedly added quite a comedic aura to the scene in question).

    I understand that there seems to be quite a few hefty bugs as well, but they're not insurmountable and not everyone has encountered them. It's like any game though. There's a chance you'll encounter a bug, sure, but there's also a good chance you won't.

    In my opinion, the game is definitely worth getting in either case.
  • The biggest bug I have run into was a failure to carry my choices from episode 1 to 2. I found a fix for it on the forums though, and I havent had that problem since. Also, I ran into the one where a character vanished. Somewhat comedic, but for the tragic mood.
  • I haven't had a single problem aside from a bit of clipping, although on another computer my girlfriend lost her saves for a bit. It was a pretty easy fix. Despite that, I understand your hesitation. There's a low percentage of errors, and each one has been documented and accounted for - each one of them are here on the forums picketing. At least you won't be alone.
  • I run on PC through Steam and haven't had a single problem, other than a missing Duck and an extra gun.
  • Ive been playing on my xbox and have had no problems except for that one glitch on the train. Otherwise, smooth sailing.
  • I've played a Steam version on 2 PCs:
    - Windows 7 64 bit - had problems with disappearing saves and decision transfer between episodes - it seems that the game writes data to the registry in the wrong place on 64-bit systems. After I had applied some fixes found in the Internet, it started to work properly.
    - Windows Vista 32 bit - everything ok.
  • I played a stream version on my PC. I am using Win7 and I don't get any problem it was working great.
  • i play on xbox and never had a problem with all 3 episodes you should get the game you wont be disappointed :D
  • I bought it on PS3 after Ep 3 came out, but I hope I don't experience any bugs when Ep 4 rolls over.

    Cmon TellTale, take some time and fix any PS3 save wiping glitch :D
