Question about the GOTY Edition

I own the Season Pass on Steam including the 400 Days DLC. Now that the GOTY Edition is about to get released, is there a way to get my hands on the extra content without having to re-buy the entire game?

    I would like to know the same. Maybe @Puzzlebox would be so kind to tell us. I own the whole season 1, Ps3 retail edition + 400 days DLC but I really want the extra content especially making ofs / OST.

  • Agreed.Would that be possible?I know it has just been released,but the fact is,I already payed for the game. :P Soundtrack cough cough...

  • I'd LOVE to put my hands on the soundtrack (even though it can be found everywhere), and the making of material or whatever it was. But I am not going to re-purchase it only because of that.

  • Just picked up the GOTY edition at Gamestop. I thought that the OST and the "behind the scenes" video would be downloadable to my PS3. Instead, you get a voucher which re-directs you to a website that lets you download the OST and the video. I'd be cool to share the website.

    I'm just wondering if it's allowed...

    If they give you a public website it must be allowed. Unless it require some sort of login. The video will get on the internet eventually anyway, and the soundtrack is on YouTube...

  • I don't actually think it'd be allowed, log-in or not. I'll try and get some clarification on the matter, but until we know more - no sharing please.

    Curious that it's a download rather than on-disc. Seems very odd.

    All it says is that you have to have a Telltale Games account, which all of us do. I see no correlation of having to put your PSN or Xbox Live account in. I guess it'd be okay. Any opinions on this, @Vainamoinen , @Puzzlebox , @Darth Marsden? If it's not cool, you can just edit out the link or whatever on my post.

  • The link appears to be a very... normal? link. Anyone could have guessed the address.

  • As I say below, I'd rather no-one post any links until I can get more information about this.

  • Okay, I cried when the making of video got to Episode Five...

  • Tears are promising...

    About how much behind the scenes content is there?

    Original ideas for the game, artwork, each episode explained in detail including 400 Days, interviews with Dave and Melissa, Telltale at the VGA awards, even some Season Two talk with Dave and Melissa. All of that in about 36 minutes.

    About half an hour.

    If you are new to The Walking Dead and want to get into it, of course. This is the ultimate TWD experience. But if you already own the Season Pass and 400 Days I'd say not worth it. You can find the making of video on YouTube already. Not gonna give out any links, but I've seen it there.

  • Would it be worth the price for getting it to watch the video?

  • Already played through the entire season. I was mainly curious about the video.

  • The video is worth watching, but not worth paying for.

  • The video is just basically an enhanced version of Playing Dead episode 9, but with more interviews and such. The main reason I purchased it was because of the OST, which includes most of the tracks that people wanted last year, such as the trailer songs (yes, even the track for the episode 5 trailer).

    Now, I'm not saying that you can totally find the making-of video on Youtube by simply typing in "The Making of The Walking Dead" into the Youtube search bar and sorting the results by upload date...but you can totally do that.

    Or you can search for leaks of the link itself which will likely be posted just about everywhere in the next few days.

    Honestly, if Telltale really did want to keep this bonus content in any way "exclusive," they did a piss-poor job of that. You don't even have to rip it from the disc but can instead just download it from the site and then upload it directly to Youtube. More than anything, it just seems to be a way to get people to visit this site and sign up...

  • And they did a horrible job with the soundtrack. The names are mixed, and some tracks are mixed with other tracks making it one track...

  • Really? That's disappointing. Although since it is a simple download, they can just fix that at any time.

    God, I really hope people who already have the game didn't buy this new GOTY edition just for "access to the series' original score and exclusive behind the scenes video" or they are going to be sorely disappointed when they find out that anyone can access the bonus content as long as they have the link.

    Is there even any improvement in the stuttering and framerate from the original disc versions?

  • Okay I will be honest this is extremely nickpicky, but I have heard this soundtrack since last year due to Youtube, so I know what it sounds like, and they mixed all the Clem songs into one, you know, Alive Inside, the Alternate version, the song that plays at the end during the, well you know, sad part, and mixed it into one, I swear Bandit Attack and It's Over sound a bit different, they misspelled Lilly's name as Lily, there is a song named Barn Dance, the part in the meat locker, and this is really nitpicky, they do not have Take Us Back, which I know it's licensed in all but still, so yeah for irony sakes one of the songs is call Goodnight Irene, there was a song of the same name in Bioshock Infinite, my other favorite game of all time, so lol there, again this is not complaining, I am extremely happy to have it, hell I am not complaining that it took ten months to get this, I am just saying there are a few faults with it, that is all.

  • Also forgot, it does not include any 400 Days songs, sorry about forgetting that part.

  • ...Just sad. I'm out of words.

  • You do have to recall how anticipated the release of the episode 5 trailer song was a few months ago. Vague answers were given, and it's finally been released in this OST. That alone makes me not hate getting the GOTY edition. Songs are not looped, and they are played to the end. Of course, many fans have already ripped the soundtrack and made short versions of tracks online, but this OST has all the full trailer songs.

    I'm not saying it's perfect, though. Including every single track in the game on the OST would be a real pain. It's just the stuff that wasn't released before.

    Eh, I'm cool with purchasing it. I got the OST and another "secret" Playing Dead episode that Dave had teased a month back. Not to mention the nice cover art.

    Well,in case of anyone wondering.

    MOD EDIT - Video removed

    And mods,if you wish so edit this out,even though there is no reason for that,the soundtrack if available in public.Its the same if people listen to it through YouTube of they take a look at my post.

  • edited November 2013

    What, pray tell, is the point of me specifically requesting that people DO NOT POST LINKS TO THE EXTRA MATERIAL if people do it anyway?

    It doesn't matter if it's freely available on YouTube or whatever, I asked people not to share it until I heard back from the Telltale team. Even if you say I can edit your post, the fact remains you disobeyed a direct request from a forum moderator.

    I'm seriously tempted to just lock the thread and suspend you for a day or two. I won't, but dammit, I am NOT happy you did that.


  • Apologies for that,Darth.My intentions weren't bad;I promise it won't repeat.

  • I'm sorry too - I over-reacted somewhat and it came across like I was attacking you. That wasn't my intention at all, and I humbly apologise.

    I never should have said I was considering suspending you - I never would have and it just makes me seem trigger-happy. Frustrations got the better of me, I guess.

    Sorry again.

    Goty edition? Is this like the goat editions from yt with goats singing popular songs?
    I'm not sure I'd like to hear goat yelling "take us back".

    Heh. Thanks for lightening the mood.

    GotY /= Goat of the Youtube.

    I got this version for my Xbox 360 because I had given my copy of the game away. It's a pretty weak game of the year edition. You get a disc that adds nothing that the first Xbox disc release did, except 400 days, and it shows the same game pic as that release. It still can't be installed on the hard drive which was a big complaint with the previous release. They don't make it clear how you will get the bonus content from the case. The 36 minute video and soundtrack must be downloaded from this site. You don't even need a code to get it, so it doesn't seem like exclusive material for buying the GOTY edition.

    You couldn't find any details about this edition before it was released, but I needed a copy anyway so I didn't think much about it before getting it. I would have liked this edition to be installed on the HDD, and for the bonus content to be on disc, but it's still the game I needed. They should give everyone here the bonus content for free, and I'm sure they will at some point. It's not worth purchasing even separate from the game. I don't think they had the intention to keep it from those who want it for free anyway, which is why it seemed unrelated to the GOTY pretty much. I'm sure everyone here who is interested in it has seen it regardless of whether they bought the game of the year or not.

  • So i presume the episode 5 trailer song counts as extra content too? That's a real shame, i'm really hoping to get my hands on the song but i don't think buying the game twice just for a single track is worth it.

  • I was just about to say that TTG might probably add this to our accounts as a dl in the games list just like with Jurassic Park, but then I noticed it's not possible to download JP OST from TTG my games page...

    Could this be a possibility ?

    It's probably not going to happen at the moment, given how the website's currently set up to work.

    Also, apologies for the thumbs down - my tablet's touch-screen was playing up, grumble grumble...

    EDIT: Fixed it now. Thumbs ups for all!*

    *I will not actually be giving everyone a thumbs up.

  • Telltale has milked season one as much as they can now, and will have to make season two just as great to continue their success. They will probably get good initial sales of season two regardless of how good or bad it is, but if they want to sustain that it's going to have to be as good as season one. I'm more pessimistic than most other who post here, but I hope I'm wrong about every negative thing I've said. If I didn't have any hope I guess I wouldn't be looking around these forums.

  • I'm surprised they didn't port Season 1 to the Wii , Wii U or 3DS.

  • I wish all latest editions will do what
    Ex: Human Revolution "Director Edition"
    and just give varied discounts to those who owns how many of the game already.
