I just started playing this and finished Episode 1 and loved it! I chose to save Duck and immediately regretted it bc I figured Shawn would be more help. Oh well. Cant stand Larry and was hoping Id be given the option of refusing to find the medication so the old fart could die. Him cornering me in the end threatening me over "liking" his daughter felt so out of left field bc I cant stand her and none of my interactions with her suggest otherwise. This was longer than I expected it to be based on comments I read. Are the others about the same length? Anyways, gonna start up on Episode 2 next and work my way up.

I finished up episode 2 this weekend and wow. The thing was simply amazing. I love how it proceeds like an actual episode of the show. Great presentation here. Having only played 2/5ths of this game, I can say it was a steal at $20. This seriously could have been a full priced $60 retail title. I thought the first 40% did so much, and there's still 60% to go.

I liked Mark I thought he was a great new character. Was horrified at what happened to him. I thought for sure he was dead when Brenda was making excuses for why he wasnt showing up. Did not expect to see him alive with his legs chopped up behind the closet

Characterization and writing is great. I cant beleive I went from hating Lily in episode 1 to beign real sympathetic towards her here. She was presented as a romantic interest in episode 1 but I wasnt feeling it but thats changed now. It didnt help Carly's case that she was gone for the most part. If they play up a triangle between these two in the future, not sure who Id pick

Man I really want to continue liking Kenny but he's making it so hard. I keep making choices to try and appease hmi (like giving his entire family food), yet he flips out when I dont agree with him. Im thinking my Lee is gonna have to let him loose eventually. Such a shame bc I think his wife and kid are worth caring for

Anyways gonna try episode 3 real soon.

How much choice does this game really have? Many games which give off the allusion of such seem that way at first but when you go back and try things differently, things turn out the same for the most part. Is that the case here as well? Does the story branch off in different ways depending on what you do or does it all for the most part stay the same?

It's like the Final Destination movies, you can't change the destiny of the characters, only postpone it.

I'm replaying it following through different choices and being as bad as I can be, and what I can state is that you can't change the fate, but you can change how you get there.

That annoyed me about Kenny too. I did a lot for the guy, but that all seemed to go out the window when I'd even consider agreeing with someone else.

Kenny's a jerk but by the end of the series I helped him where I felt I could and told him off when he went overboard and he was a good guy by the end.

Im midway through Episode 3 and up to the part where you and Ben are about to go search the train and my thoughts at this point is F everyone. I just want to take Clementine and run.

Carley was like the only person I truly trusted and then Lily goes and blow her head in. I was sympathetic towards Lily before but after that, Im done with her. Kenny's been a lost cause for quite sometime now and I definetly dont trust him. Duck's been bitten so he needs to die before he turns on us. Kat isnt so bad but she comes as a packaged pair with Kenny. Finally theres Ben and I never cared for him. Clementine's the only decent one left and Im done caring for this crazy group. Screw them. I need to find a way to ditch them

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Wow, did not see Lily just stealing the RV and leaving everyone stranded. I have a few choice 5 letter words for her that I'll keep to myself. I hope she pops up in the future and i get to watch her die

Wow, Kenny. Scratch the stuff I said about hating and wanting to rid myself of him. After he accepted the fact that Duck was a goner and Kat killed herself, I really felt bad for the guy. He truly has no one but me and unfortunately without them around to protect, I think he will be less selfish and more level headed. Im glad he didnt rip into me for not telling him about going to jail. I think I'll try to stick with and help him out.....for now

I instantly distrusted Chuck bc of all that went down with the group, but he seems like he means well, espeically when it came to giving me advice on Clementine

Im not so sure on Omid and Christa. I definetly was feeling what she was saying about being able to survive so long bc it was just the two of them and not a group as Ive been wanting to break away from the group. I like Omid. He seems like a fun character. Christa? Not so much. Will keep my eye on her

Wasnt expecting that ending with the radio message. Didnt even think that thing worked and curious as to who is behind it. Man cant wait to start Episode 4

Im not. The choice was quite easy actually.

The woman was bitten so she already was dead. Spare her what a few more minutes of torture? That wasnt going to change her fate. She did buy me time to get the supplies that the rest of the group needed and if I had shot her, the walkers would have been tipped off to me and going out would have been a waste. Now had she not been bitten, Id have considered saving her, but it was too late

I left Lilly behind. Anyone that took her onto the RV was CRAZY. How you could justify bringing a person who had just MURDERED a member of the group for saying no to her is beyond me. Remind me not to be in any of your survivor groups!

LOL...as pissed as I was at her, I felt bad bc she was still very emotional due to what happened to her father and and getting confirmation that someone was betraying them. I didnt think she was a bad person, just someone put in an awful position who let the pressure get to her. Then she also mentioned that Lee was a killer as he killed in the heat of he moment and I know my guy wasnt a bad person as well. I had no clue what I would do with her at that point, but I didnt think it was right to leave her on the side of the road to die alone. I guess a part of me wanted to give her a second chance as I was given one. Too bad she ended up screwing me over in the end anyway

Buncha pansies.



Little bit of trivia for Walking Dead comic fans:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Lilly was intended to be the chick who shot and killed Lori, the baby and the Governor.

From the wiki:

Quote:
Upon the release of the Road to Woodbury novel, which features a different back-story for Lilly than the video game, the developer Telltale Games removed from the official website all references to Lilly being the same character from the comic series. Also, the in-game achievement that displays when Lilly leaves the group was changed from "Woodbury bound" to "What now?" This indicates that Telltale Games changed the game Lilly to be a different Lilly from the comics and novels after all, in an effort to keep all three mediums in the same canon.

Because she's good with a good...and there weren't many others who could shoot as well as her.

And the next time she decides to go and be unstable I bet her being a real good shot would be a real boon to the group.

That is if she hadn't gone and lost her **** and left the entire group to die.

My logic was: Psychologically unstable woman with a gun is not somebody I want in an RV with Clementine.

Episode 4 is my favorite. I thought it was the creepiest and it wasn't because of the zombies.
If you can, play it in the dark of night, when there is no one to bother you. But play it all at once so the mood isn't interrupted. If you have the same experience that I did, then I think you're going to enjoy it as much.
