  • OMG, just look at this thread. I bet that noone from TTG ever reads these entries, unless they have no other choice. It is a unacceptable, how paying customers are treated by TTG, The accumulated pain and sorrow that have been created by setting expectations and not fulfilling them is outrageous.

    I assume, that the reason is, that too many people have already bought season passes for TWD 2. This means, that there is no incentive for them to deliver episodes in a timely manner. Guess, how it would be like, if they were paid from episode to episode? I bet they were not more delayed than a week, if any.

    I will never.
    Buy a season pass.
    For a Telltale game.
    Ever again.

    Unless, of course, all titles are already released and available for purchase. I will rather buy each episode individually and spend a few bucks more than to play this game of delays and broken promises and disappointment again. And for now, I will go and get TLOU-LB and try not to think about possible release dates.

  • Bastard I thought this was the trailer lol

  • You can try it if you want to, but all you're going to do most likely is cost yourself a little money. I'm not on the inside, but I feel very confident when I say that this delay has nothing to with how many people bought season passes or not.

  • Dude, it's been over 2 months since episode 1, i think we've had MORE than enough time to discuss and speculate who that person is..

  • again nope.

    this is pointless hot air you two a blowing out here.

    7-9 years ttg have been running,

    twau and twd are being worked on still and then got game of thrones and borderlands

    and since they are being paid/helped by gearbox ttg will not fall most likely they will be bought out, ttg is not going anywhere for a long long time.

    and saying anything else is just stupid.

    bottom line here is if they had any idea they were in the shit they would not have bothered announcing two more games.

    seriously stick your heads back in the sand.

    Yeah, I agree. Telltale should figure something out FAST, or it's over for them. And with that I mean they will go bankrupt. I see it coming, sadly

  • Also spoilers for the comic book and to an extent TV show.

    Telltale has confirmed to us that the games are canon to the comicbooks. Lee's group meet up with Hershel in episode 1 and then leave or get forced out after Shawn's death. Hershel then begins a collection of walkers in his shed, starting with Shawn, thinking that they can be returned to normal. Rick's group then shows up at Hershels farm shortly after, and Hershel eventually accompanies them to the prison where he stays until he is killed by the governor during his taking of the prison.

    It can't be Hershel, he is dead.

    It's most likely Kenny or Lilly, and supposedly could be Molly. My money is on Kenny since he seems to be the most likely to be assumed dead by Clem, most likely informed of what happened by Omid and Christa. She has little reason to thnk Lilly is dead considering she either steals the RV or is abandoned on the road, it's not as if she was overrun by walkers. Molly is a possibility but in one instance she obviously survives and chooses to do her own thing or she gets shot / overrun and runs off. Lee assumes that she may not have made it. Telltale does try to tailor the trailer to some of your choices, and if you brought Clem along with you in Episode 4, she has absolutely no reason to think Molly is dead and I'd hate to think Telltale would make that big of a mess up in the trailer.

    And please, make Laura Persuco change her Twitter avatar already - her grin while trolling us with alleged "soons" and "so excited" while avoiding serious questions on the forum is mockery at its best.

    Let's get some facts in here...

    The last time I tweeted using the word "soon" in relation to an upcoming episode's release was on Jan 24 about The Wolf Among Us episode 2. The episode released 11 days later.

    The last times I used the word "excited" in a tweet were on Jan 15 about playing Broken Age, and on Dec 7 in relation to the VGX livestream.

    I'm pretty careful about hyping too far in advance of when I reasonably expect an episode to release.

    Damn, Telltale. At least I want "A House Divided" to be longer than "All that Remains" and much longer than "Smoke & Mirrors" -

  • Hershel is quite dead as per the comic books, see above post.

    Vernon is assumed dead on account of what Joyce (cancer survivor) mentions in 400 days. She refers to Vernon being lost but it is not specifically mentioned that he has died. However, Clem definlitely has no reason to think that Vernon is dead as the last time she seems him, he leaves to go with his group and only returns to steal the boat after Clem is taken by the Stranger.

    Following Episode 1, Glenn leaves Macon and heads to Atlanta where he meets Ricks group of survivors from the Comic book. He stays with that group throughout the entirety of the comics and does not leave. Clem has no reason to think Glenn is dead so it can't and won't be him.

    My money is on Kenny, or honestly it could even be Christa, don't really know how long Clem hangs around at the cabin between episodes. There were at the motor inn for 3 months between episode 1 & 2 so it's possible to assume that after months of not seeing Christa, she might think that she was killed by the group in the woods.

    So many possibilities!

  • It is always difficult for me to replay the first episode. Mainly because of Omid's death and that I have to experience it every time I replay.

    i am thinking about playing the first episode again. i never replay any episodes only just play them once as they come out. has anyone else replay them while waiting lol? i am kind of nervous i don't remember what choices i made..

  • According to the unofficial FAQ, the second episode of everything Telltale have released is used to take feedback from reviews

    Every episode BEGINNING with the second is supposed to take fan feedback into consideration. And that's only because they can't really get feedback for the first before it's actually out.

  • In the comicbooks, Dale survives a walker bite on his leg. In the TV show, Hershel also survives a walker bite on his leg.
    Robert Kirkman, the writer of the Walking Dead, has made it quite clear that a person can survive a walker bite through amputation.
    If amputated quick enough, the infection will not spread.

    If u know anything about the walking dead, you know that bite victims don't survive. Also why does everyone cut of Lee's arm?

  • I will kindly ignore you insulting me for no reason, but you basically say Telltale still exist because...they exist so long? Wut?

    They weren't working on FOUR games at a time back then, and they are clearly having trouble to keep up their good work.

    'All That Remains' felt rushed, 'Smoke and Mirrors' was even worse. They are going down right now.

    As for the buy up thing, I don't think Gearbox helps them at all. Why would they? It's just Gearbox' IP, and they want the credits for advertisement.

    They aren't working together in any way.

    there is no insult.

    replying is not ignoring.

    and gear box have said they are partnering with ttg. or as much as. http://www.polygon.com/2013/12/7/5186498/tales-from-the-borderlandstelltale-games-vgx-2013

    here's some friendly advice don't like it, don't play it then.

    I will kindly ignore you insulting me for no reason, but you basically say Telltale still exist because...they exist so long? Wut?

  • Interestingly enough, you could argue that there is only one definite outcome that Lee is dead based on choices. Basically this would be for those who made the choice to not cut his arm off. To not do so would mean with relative certainty that Lee would eventually succumb to infection and become a walker.

    "But JCMF, I cut his arm off and had Clem shoot him, so hes dead!". Not necessarrily, we see Clem holding the gun and pull the trigger and the gun goes bang, but we don't actually see bullet to Lee's head. Screen goes black. In any form of Zombie fiction, if you don't see an on-screen death, theres a chance, no matter how small, that you might see the person again.

    However I don't want to feel like a troll, just mentioning a minute possibility. Regardless of whether or not Clem actually shoots him, It's my belief that he would eventually succumb to the infection as there was a lot of time between when he was bitten and when it was cut off. In other walking dead sources where a person survived the bite, the area was removed almost immediately. It may have been only 5 minutes to the player, but who knows how long it actually takes to get through the sewers to the morgue. Could have been hours. Considering he was already having fainting spells, I'd agree that it was too late. I still cut it off though, gotta hold on to HOPE.

    I love this stuff, I remember 15 years ago having this same basic discussion about Ada Wong from Resident Evil 2. People were so certain she was dead and then Resident Evil 4 comes out and proves how awesome a series Resident Evil is. Then RE5 had to screw things up again.

    I exclude Lee coming back they've end it very well, I highly doubt it is Molly and I sure hope so, she is sexy and I trust her ... but if not I hope its Kenny not Lilly that bitch #_#

  • Do you think they'd ever make a "premium" section where only customers who have paid through the site and are linked to one specific account can create discussions and post replies?

    'Pointless hot air' and 'stupid' are no hard insults, but insults. I said I'd ignore these, not your post.

    But I didn't know they teamed up with Gearbox. Sorry bout that.

    Still, something is going down at Telltale, and it's nothing good.

    BTW I like the game, but I really hate Telltale's way of ignoring us. But at no point I said I didn't like the game.

    there is no insult. replying is not ignoring. and gear box have said they are partnering with ttg. or as much as. http://www.

  • If they didn't release it in March, then people could finally say that it's been delayed, instead of insisting that not having a specific release date somehow means it's been delayed.

    Watch telltale not release it in march

  • We've had pre order forums where people who preordered a game from Telltale would get to post in developer created threads for a couple seasons. However, I doubt Telltale would create forums like that for anything outside of a pre order promotional event.

  • The main problem I saw with TellTale was that they were not communicating. After the 6 weeks are up, or once they figure out that they won't be able to release the game in their expected time frame, they should immediately tell their customers. I think for me and for most people this is the major issue. Although I too am upset that it is taking a long time to release the episode, I think the main problem that people have with TellTale is that they refuse to acknowledge that they went way past their expected time frame. Not as many people would be complaining if TellTale posted a blog or something on their Twitter letting everyone know that the game will be delayed.

    I mean...what the heck? As a company that is starting to boom in the gaming industry, wouldn't you want to make sure that you are communicating with your customers, and make sure they know what are going on? What TellTale is doing with not communicating just is not logical.

    But I have to be happy that they at least communicated with us about the release date of Early March. However, if they go past early March, and don't let us know, that is just unacceptable and illogical for them.

  • lol peace bro.

    nice to know you've seen the light :)

  • Nej, om det är det enda man har som tidsfördriv, så blir det lite jobbigt.

    FreddeN93 posted: »

    VI får se. Om man har väntat i två och en halv månad för bara en och en halv timmes gameplay så blir det inte kul.

  • But it's possible to connect accounts through X Box LIve and Origin, so I think a riot could be averted since the framework is already there. Maybe people could complete surveys, too? Anyway, I'm just curious about the future of these games, so go easy. I'm not going to start a petition like some fool did against Subway recently.

  • Wow... The level of whining in here is at an epic level. People need to realize that the squeaky wheel doesn't always get the grease. I agree on some points, but the real vote to exact change comes from your wallet. I'm not really sure what the appeal is for episodic games, but I really hope it doesn't become normal practice in the industry. I don't even care for television delivered that way, midseason breaks and all that other crap to maintain your "mindshare".

    I will say that with the first season, I wasn't engrossed in it enough to hang on specific episode release dates. I would simply go check for new content when i was reminded to by an advert or word of mouth. At the end of the season, I had really enjoyed the game, so looked forward to the next one. As I see now, a season pass and episodic content isnt for me. I'll continue to play the game, but will elect to wait until all episodes have been released, so I can binge play, like I watch Game of Thrones...

  • Right on!

    I have however been here since S1E1, but I totally agree I kinda wish I hadent discovered this game til it was the whole season at once.

    Wow... The level of whining in here is at an epic level. People need to realize that the squeaky wheel doesn't always get the grease

  • I was eager for the new episodes but now the TV show is back on :D Games take time to fix and get out so I just hope all this waiting was worth it. S2 E1 was pretty boring and short and didn't feel as engaging as any part of Season 1 was. I really hope E2 makes up for it. I think that's part of the problem. E1 was fulfilling enough and we're all still hungry plus they had to throw in a cliff hanger of all things. I just hope E2 has you doing more than roaming through the woods and fetching band aids. I also hope this season doesn't do a jump cut like they did in Season 1 where E1 and E2 left you wondering just what happened with the insta FF felt like they skipped stuff on purpose to progress the series. I hope this time they make the episodes LONG and don't Fastforward anything.

  • Are we there yet?

  • Really wish I had that kind of self control.

    Wow... The level of whining in here is at an epic level. People need to realize that the squeaky wheel doesn't always get the grease

  • Maybe I'm mistaken but didn't Telltale promise to release Episode 2 in the first week of Feb??
