|Nice use of spoilers there.|
|Considering they setup half the episode with "did cutting off the arm work?", yes, it's a considerable spoiler.|
No-one has ever survived a bite in The Walking Dead, apart from all those who have.|
Spoiler protect spoilers, that's what it's there for and considering the final episode has only been out a short period of time and some people may not have played any of the season at all yet it's only being considerate.
This space left intentionally blank.
|There were a number of people asking if it's worth getting the bundled episodes on the previous pages, and those who said they are just starting the game. It certainly wouldn't be obvious to anyone starting what the outcome would be, so it's a big spoiler. I know I'd be annoyed.|

Fantastic game, I'd say GOTY. That ending. :'( That is all.|
I also got the save bug issue as well. Thought they were doing a mega re-cap for a second
I just skipped up to episode 5 risking the random choices and it did 95% of them right for me, so was good.

Eurogamer's local Canadian member. Eh?
Can a mod spoiler tag doctor_fraud's posts please as it doesn't look like the cunt is going to do it himself.|
Bloody brilliant game, think they handled the ending spectacularly :'( Roll on season 2!
Yep, GOTY for me too...the only thing that ruined it for me is playing ep 5 with the wife in the room yapping on in my ear while I played all the others by myself. Kind of ruined the atmosphere for me, still very emotional though.|
Love that little Clem to bits, and as much as I want to see any other possible outcomes though a replay or youtube I might resist as although I regret a few decision, it's MY story and although I realise it's hardly unique it feels unique to me.
*sniff* sad it's over but feeling very satisfied in the end
I'm with that, i'm not going to see any other choices. That was my story, it's amazing how personal they make it. How personal they make your relationship with Clem.|
Truly wonderful stuff.
Speak the truth hussy!
Yeh, it's just like heavy rain - give it enough respect to play it through once. |
Am tempted though!
After finishing Dishonored earlier, and having this on my hard drive since the last steam sale I thought I was doing it a disservice by not giving it a go.|
Played through episode 1 and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a great little game. Nice and bite sized, fun, atmospheric, good voice acting and so many nice little touches to do with the conversations.
Might try and play it an episode per week, at one sitting each episode, see how that goes.
I played the first two episodes in one sitting and it diluted the experience a bit. Best to do as the EG review says: give it a week's rest between chapters. Let it marinate in your brain for a while.|
What's the deal with Clem spotting/being spotted by those two strangers at the end? DON'T YOU TOUCH MY CLEM! Ghost Lee is gonna fuck you up.
Anyway, I was surprised to find that most players chose to make Clem shoot them. That's a bit cruel and unnecessary, isn't it? Lee's cuffed and not going anywhere, so why waste a bullet, make noise and - most of all - put Clem through such a thing?
Clementine is such a fucking badass.
I hope we see more of her... but nothing could replace Clem and Lee's relationship, so perhaps possible sequels should let us play as her?
I'd see it as the culmination of Lee's tutelage. She's earned her wings and is now more than capable of flying solo IMO.
Being cast in the shoes of another guardian would feel wrong, not to mention repetitive.

Ah, k, fair enough.|
I love the fact that the biggest driving force behind people's decision-making seems to be "how does this help Clem?". Despite TWD's faults, it's unique in that way* and I really hope to see the fruits of our/Lee's labour in the future.

Damn. All excited downloading the latest episode, and wandering off to do something else while it happened. Came back, and loaded my save only for it to start from the beginning of episode one.|
Quit out, went back, my cloud save updates and i'm right back at the opening of episode one. No other saves (stupid of me).
I guess this gives me the excuse to play through on PC from the start, but hard to stomach seeing my initial choice history disappear into the digital tubes.
Hah hah - I give up with this hunk of junk (oooh, cutting).|
Decided to start from Episode 1 - for the third time - in an attempt to get back to the end of Chapter 2, which is where I was before my last 'game save debacle'.
Did it in around an hour and a half - only to find that it hadn't saved a thing. \o/
I think someone else mentioned that they should allow you to pre-select past choices before starting a chapter - that's the only way I'll now be able to get through this thing.

Missus started tearing up while watching me play this. She loved it and wasn't the one playing it. |
It was great and shows how well an episodic adventure can work. It's not perfect, Duck's model of me didn't load during certain parts of Ep 3, but I still enjoyed it.
Roll on Season 2, which I hope has a slightly older Clem taking center stage, seeing how she is doing post Lee.
Just finished Episode 2 last night and got the stats screen and everything... now when I go to play Episode 3 it's claiming that I haven't even started the second episode yet (I don't even have the stats for it) and that my last save was two days ago.|
Uhh... any ideas what I can do? In the actual save folder, on the C: drive, I can SEE THE SAVE FILES FROM LAST NIGHT! RIGHT THERE!
EDIT: I found a very odd fix. You copy the 'prefs.prop' file from 'C:\Users\Username\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead' to the Walking Dead folder in the Steam directory. Seems ok now!

Just finished it. Played it through at the same time as a few friends, and came to some interesting observations. Not gonna put any spoilers in, which will result in some generalization, but you'll get what I mean. (Saying that, I'll spoiler it anyway. People will probably look at this before they finish the game and I don't want it to affect their own experience)|
One fundamental thing about the game irked me. Firstly, it's a great story, there's no denying that, and as a result it's a really fun game to play through if you take it for what it is. Also, Clementine is probably one of the best characters of a new IP I've seen for the best part of a decade.
But, and here's my main beef with the game, if they are going to tell you that the game is tailored by your actions, they should really stand by that and back it up. All they seem to have done is fuse in a relatively minor element of sub-plots that all come to the exact same conclusion regardless of your choice (I know this because my friends made fundamentally different choices at key plot points and we discussed it), and then other times they give you choices and the game just ignores it anyway.
If you are going to be adventurous enough to claim that the game is tailored by your actions, then you should go the full hog and write multiple stories, take off the shackles. It's the only way around it.
Saying that, I don't want this to come across as too negative. The game as it is, is amazing, and on that one play-through I felt the extreme ups and downs like everyone else. I'll definitely be picking it up next season. I just want them to follow through on their claim of a customized story, because that's where its maximum potential (and more importantly, its re-playability) is to be found.

And now I've lost about 40 minutes of play time as my save has vanished. Great.|
This is a fantastic game but it has so many damn problems with the saves. It's ruining it
Baleoce wrote:The problem with writing separate stories that don't return to main narative would mean the game would be come more linear or much shorter. Think of a game length like a piece of string cutting it up to make parrelllel story lines make it shorter the only way to even it out is to share common threads
The strange thing is I hold The Dragon Age series up as example of diversity and choice, the fact that the brothels in DA service everybody, male/female with multiple options, to remove the brothels is a step backwards for diversity IMO
