  • I never had a bullying problem back in my school days, probably because if someone started messing with me I would just hit them back. Didn't matter how much bigger or stronger they were. Also, I suspect several classmates were scared I might bomb t…
  • That's exactly why I didn't shoot. I figured calling for help might get more people's attention. There's quite a few times I chose to do something for a specific reason, but the game took the decision to mean something else entirely. The only real p…
  • That's not entirely correct. There is a difference between being rational/logical and cold/cynical. Logic dictated that I shoot Kenny to get him off Jane because he was out of control, which he even admits himself. Logic also dictated that I leave J…
  • That's sort of my point, he's my son, so I know firsthand what it means to be a guardian to an infant. It didn't take time to build that sense of responsibility. It came in an instant. While it's not fair that Clementine has been given that same res…
  • I'd actually be interested in seeing how the game would turn out having to keep an infant safe while avoiding walkers and bandits. Being a father to a baby boy probably helps in that though. If I were in that position, there is no way I would give u…
  • Glenn is a character from the comics, so his fate is already sealed. While the games don't follow the comics, they still respect the comics' established canon.
  • I'd rather a DLC similar to 400 Days where you can see glimpses of other survivors' viewpoints, even if they are not all that significant to the main story. Maybe even a continuation of what happens to the 400 Days characters themselves after Howes,…
  • I saw similar stats after my first playthrough. I thought more people would have ended up alone with AJ than with Jane, but apparently not. I guess I personally just have a very low tolerance for manipulators.
  • One of the things I was remembering during the Wellington scene was Lee's advice to never get trapped. Wellington looks like a huge trap to me. All it takes is one accident inside the walls to cause an internal zombie outbreak, in which case the wal…
  • I think the reason he kept her in the dark was because he knew she simply wasn't mentally capable of handling it. Jane said the same thing about her sister. Not everyone is capable of adapting, instead they just give up and die. He knew his daughter…
  • Baldur's Gate was one of my favorites since the early 2000s, but I could never get myself to replay BG2. I think I figured out why during my last attempt at replaying it: the NPCs are just too whiny. There might be 3 NPCs I like, the rest just get t…
  • Ha! Same here. I started my job making quite a bit less than I do now, but I was still single and saved up about $10,000 easy. Got married and all my savings dropped down to next to nothing. Saved it back up and then lost it all again when we had ou…
  • No, I was actually hoping to see more of Becca and Shel in season 2. They were kind of like a foil to Lee and Clementine in that Becca was becoming the complete opposite of what Shel was trying to teach her. I would've liked to have seen that develo…
  • I think she'll become more of an antagonistic character. Not like Carver, but more like a person who just goes completely crazy and unpredictable, which would be detrimental to the rest of the group's survival.
  • Snow tires are non-existent in the southern states, so schools have to be shut down when the roads get snowed or dangerously icy.
  • She shot him so that he could draw the walkers away from them. If she outright killed him, the walkers would have attacked her and the rest of the group instead of going after Troy. By shooting him in the crotch, she was guaranteed that he wouldn't …

  • Yeah, I thought they looked more like zombies than Ben and Doug, but no matter. puzzlebox posted an explanation on why they didn't use Omid and Christa in that scene here: http://www.telltalegames.com/community/discussion/40516/who-were-the-shadows-…
  • It was actually generic zombie models if I remember correctly. The reason was that they wanted it to remain secret until season 2 and to keep everyone talking about it, but most people figured the silhouettes were Omid and Christa anyway.
  • I think the problem has more to do with the trend games are taking across the board rather than just with Telltale. When playing a game 20 years ago, we were basically thrown into the game world having to fend for ourselves. No one told us what the …
  • I don't think Telltale explicitly said it, but it is generally understood that game Lilly is a different character altogether so that the games can still be considered canon to the comics.
  • I didn't know there was a such thing as graduating junior high. Where I'm from, it was elementary school -> middle school (junior high) -> high school. The only graduation that took place was at the end of high school.
  • Russell's picture in 400 days shows him in a cap and gown, which places him in the 'recently graduated high school' age range.
  • Yeah, but the whole intrigue to TWD is its realistic take on how a zombie apocalypse would go down. So except for the walking corpses all over the place, it should try to be as realistic as possible.
  • Chopping the electrical pole with an axe would've been a bit far-fetched. I recently took down a random trailer pole that was left in my yard by the previous home owners. I had to take a chainsaw to it. An axe just wasn't going to work for that.
  • Sam and Max seasons 1 and 2 had a longer gap between the first and second episodes, also. I can't say about the other games, because I didn't order them until a few episodes were already released, but I'd say a longer gap between the first couple ep…
  • The velociraptor has been my favorite dinosaur since Jurassic Park was first released in '93.
  • They definitely would still post angry rants about delays. And if there weren't any delays, the angry rants would be about something else. I suspect that is why ttg employees don't seem to have as big a presence in these forums as they did 5-6 years…
  • The problem with IP banning is that it only works with static IPs. ISPs generally provide dynamic IPs to their customers, so the IPs change after a while. So banning the IP is only temporary, and eventually it may end up banning a legitimate user. T…
  • Yeah, suggesting that an obscure character is not Kenny or suggesting that TTG is not necessarily trolling the community with Kenny look-alikes whenever it turns out not to be Kenny once the episode comes out apparently makes you an automatic Kenny-…
