Is Telltale going to try to find a way to make S2's ending MORE miserable than S1's?

I sure hope not. After the latest episode of GAME OF THRONES, I've had my fill of things turning out for the worst in my pop-culture entertainment.

Seriously, Telltale...life's not all that bad. Like Grant Morrison once wrote: "Only a bitter little adolescent boy could confuse realism with pessimism." Please remember these words, even while you're writing the darkest, bleakest episode of season 2.

  • Oh Game of Thrones. For every Tyrion, you give me two Joffreys and a Littlefinger.


    I've already said that I think that one of the reasons that season 1 worked so well was the fact that it wasn't miserable 100% of the time. Those moments that let us take a breath and have more lighthearted interactions with the characters allow attachments to be formed and tragedies to hold weight.

    If the atrocities are too relentless they lose impact, but with no conflict at all we lose tension. There's a balance to be had, so I hope season 2 follows suit.
  • Tell me about it, for every good character you either get two bad ones, or the good one dies so you always have more assholes, which is why I like it.
  • I saw that episode, and are you saying you want everyone we liked in season 1 to die all at once, because that would make it quite depressing.
  • well in my opinion there is only two ways to make it sadder by killing clem off or having either christa or her baby die during labour
  • Or both, if you want people leaping out windows due to the miserableness.
  • I seriously doubt season 2's sadness will even be close to season 1.
  • Unless they kill Clementine at the end which I am betting that won't happen, not saying it's going to be a walk in the park but they can not top Lee's death without killing Clem.
  • Chrsita having her baby and it dying when she has it might just do it

    It's The Walking Dead man. Realism=Pessimism there. As like in Russia :D
  • Just say the words Walking Dead and all you think is pain death sadness and more pain, it's not a happy world and if you think there will be a happy ending then you were not paying attention.
