  • Well I was wondering if they will ship those DVD as far in Asia..

  • China... Why do you ask that?

  • From Mother Russia.
    thanks to Gaben for his digital distribution service.

    From Germany. Yes they ship Discs. Even localized. Might get my hands on the GOTY Edition.

    Oh wait you mean from the Telltale Store itself? Not an Idea.

  • Sydney, Australia

    I would assume that they also ship to Asia. I have ordered many of their collector's edition DVDs to Europe, so they do ship overseas. However it can sometimes be quite expensive (I don't remember which DVD it was, but one of the collector's DVDs had higher shipping price than others).

  • Hungary is where I am from ^^

  • Madrid, Spain.

  • Dublin, Ireland :)

  • French Flanders.

  • French but currently living in mexico so i can't help you with that </3.

  • Berlin, Germany

  • I'm from Athens, GA. Which make playing or watching TWD strangely immersive.

  • The great US of A!

  • Are you trying to learn Spanish?

  • Cumbria, England. Nobody has heard of it, seriously most British people don't even know where it is ;-;

  • If I had said I come from "great" Germany, what would you have thought? Never mind ;)

    Norrtälje, Kingdom of Sweden!

  • Santiago,Chile

  • Copenhagen, Denmark

  • Lisbon, Portugal. They ship discs here but not at the sime time, like a week later or something ;)

  • do you know what the shipping cost is?

  • Actually no, I just get the digital version, not the physical version buy I've ordered books and it usually changes depending on how fast you want it, or the company that brings it. Maybe about 12 or 15 euros.

  • im from this part of the galaxy.

  • thanks for the answer. I was just wondering if my collectors edition dvd will be more expensive than the game itself :)

    Why would anyone think weird of great Germany ? Germany is great ;)

    And to whoever down thumbed inFamous913, I will add that the USA are great too indeed !

    Hooray for all our great countries :)

    Wow, I bet ! You could make a road trip following the journey of Lee and the group just like that, and with a bit of imagination, pretend you'd be in TWD season 1 for real... Actually only a few days ago I was looking their route up on Google Earth and other maps, well I'm still not sure about the precise roads, but I know they found the train somewhere in the area around Dublin, and it used the GCR shortline, going through Vidalia :D

    By the way, do you have a southern accent ?

    I'd love it if in season 2 there was a born and raised Georgian character in season 2 with a local accent, I just love to hear it.

    "We don't take kindly to zombies around here" :D

    You don't want to give away that much personal info on the internet, dude, you never know who's gonna find it and show up at your door

  • I'm more familiar with Kent, sorry...

    But I bet you have fantastic landscapes and surely a good deal of Hadrian's wall in your backyard

  • syracuse New York.

    lmao virgil!! yea, multicolt was just a bit too specific.

    I moved here in 1998 from South Florida, so no, unfortunately I don't have a Georgian accent (which depends on what county you're from, really. A native of Macon, for example, sounds a bit different from a native Athenian). What I like about the game is that they didn't overdo the "Southerness." Older natives do tend to have heavier accents and use "folky" lingo but the younger generation are pretty homogenized (and again, that also depends on where in GA you're from, major cities or the sticks). Plus, there are a lot of out-of-staters who come to live in Atlanta or attend school in Athens. They could have easily fallen into the trap of making everyone sound like hillbillies right out of the Dukes of Hazzard or Deliverance or something.

    It was very surreal when I first played and Lee was revealed as having been a professor at UGA. I never attended but have so many friends who are/were students and professors, and since campus reaches right to downtown, I've been on the grounds countless times. Been to Macon a couple times so that was a treat in-game, too. Haven't been to Savannah yet, but my closest friend is down there often.

    Anyway, yeah, all of this made things really hit home, especially with the game. Athens, especially, is only mostly known for UGA and being the home of REM and the B-52s. So it was a treat to see (or rather, hear) it hit mainstream in another medium.

    By the way, I just visited Helen, GA the other day: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen,_Georgia It would be wild to see what this place is like after the zombie apocalypse.

    edit: Oh and about the show, Rick Grimes' actor's accent isn't the greatest but has definitely improved since the pilot and season 1.

    the younger generation are pretty homogenized

    I think it's sad, it's the same in most languages, accents and dialects tend to disappear and make way for a more standardized language and pronounciation...

    the trap of making everyone sound like hillbillies right out of the Dukes of Hazzard or Deliverance or something.

    Yeah, I see what you mean. A lot of caricature about the South going on in your medias. (Dukes of Hazzard at least was in good mood and portrayed the people in a rather affectionate way, but in so many TV shows it's always the stereotype of the "stupid inbred meth using redneck", if I was a southerner myself I'd like to have a discussion with those people from Hollywood)

    Anyway thank you for sharing these impressions of someone who actually lives near the places, to hear about things you know in the game -and the show- must've been and be a surreal experience indeed.

    As for Helen, it looks gorgeous... But if I was a survivor in eastern Georgia (where I think season 2 will probably begin since Clem couldn't have made it too far on her own from Savannah), I wouldn't try to travel north and go through the densily populated parts around Atlanta. The large residential-free wooded zone around Fort Stewart looks safer to me, but perhaps there are too many soldiers = potential zombies there too, I don't know.

  • "Anyway thank you for sharing these impressions"

    No problem! Thanks for taking an interest. I enjoyed reading your take.

  • Ha, I lived there, too, for a year. In DeWitt.

  • Oregon that one state that is always pronounced incorrectly :P
