Yeah, Doug was zombie food here too And there was no way Lilly was being forgiven for pulling that stunt- I had hopes for Carley!

Ep 4 is all done now - what a bloody twist that was at the end! Fuck me, that felt like I'd been punched in the gut.

Anyone know what date Ep 5 is released? Not that I want this to end, but I'm finding that I'm looking forward to the next ep of the game more than the next ep of the show! So chuffed we're getting Season 2 now.

The retail version is out 4th December so it is expected that the 5th and final episode will be out just before that

Just a quick question, did everyone save Carley on their first playthrough?


Yeah. She gots a gun.


Yeeeeeeah, that's not why I saved her.

I should really go back and finish Ep4. I was just so annoyed when my save got wiped that I haven't been back to it. I want to try and make all the same choices I did first time around.

I'm going to try and get all my mates to buy it. Although for some of them this type of game is their worst nightmare.

Episode 5 out today. Downloaded it, haven't played it yet, as I had to finish episode 4. Which I've just done.

Kenny didn't come with me to find Clem. The bastard.

Anyway, I'll be avoiding this thread until I finish the final episode.

Episode 5 done.

Utterly superb. I couldn't see some of the choices I had to make through the tears.

I'm now off to tell my friends and family that I love them all.

episode 5 completed... I need a hug I've never gotten so emotionally attached to computer game characters before.

Honestly have to say this is one of the best games I've ever played.The script and voice acting has been superb throughout which is still a rarity in games today.

SPOILERS

The guy who took Clementine was incredibly creepy in a normal sort of way, I took all his stuff from the car at the end of episode 2. What's his reason for taking Clem if you left all his stuff? The ending was incredibly moving.

MASSIVE SPOILERS

The moment I started losing it was when Clem was helping a limping, dying Lee along the counter. And after that, I welled up at everything Clem said.


Game of the year, no question.

Couldn't agree more. Can't remember the last time a game put me through the emotional ringer the way this one did - you'd probably have to go all the way back to FF7, and even then, this is worse. I feel drained now. If this isn't a contender for GOTY, there's just no justice.

Wonder what the post-credit epilogue was all about? I know they're doing Season 2 of the game, I wonder if it will tie in?

In answer to your question (SPOILERS FOLLOW) I took the alternative route in Ep 2. No difference - guilt by association. He wasn't too impressed with how you've looked after your comrades either!

So, SPOILERSdid y'all go for the arm chop or not?END SPOILERS

I didn't, then instantly regretted. How much different was the game if you did? I presume you couldn't jump from the bell tower at the start if you did.

SPOILLLLEEEEEERRRRSSS Throughout dont read on!




I did the arm cutting and it was brutal for one, (being about 5 mins into the game!). And did lead to a lot of questions about did it work/losing blood etc... But other than that I think it played out the same.

I liked the conversation with the creepy guy on the arm chairs - it sort of re-capped all of your specific choices in the game. Very clever stuff and although the outcomes may not be that different, certainly made it feel like it was your own story.

Excellent stuff and highly reccomend it - £11.99 on the steam sale at the moment for all 5 episodes.

OK Ive just downloaded episode 3 and have a question. Does the game offer good replay value (as Im hoping) in that early choices affect the ending (s)?

I haven't played through twice, but I am intrigued to see how some of the other choices play out, though I suspect they're more superficial than I hope.

Yeah, I'd agree with Rhubarb. None of the decisions made will likely affect the ending too much. And I doubt there's much replay value outside of saving different characters.

A one play only game, but what a game. As I said in my review "Once again, the choices you make donít really affect the outcome of the game much (all players will play more or less the same game) but what they do affect is your own soul."

I'm a dramatic bastard.

Dramatic, maybe, but it's a fair enough assessment   The ending is pretty much inevitable regardless of your in-game choices (except for the final choice that Clem has to make), but it's what you have had to do to get there that gives this game its emotional impact, and what an impact that is.

Shit, I totally forgot about the gut punch of seeing Clem's parents. I mean, I reckon we all assumed that that would happen, but...oh, poor Clem.

Walking Dead Episode 1 is free and the whole set is on sale on XBLA 28th December


http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/12/25/the-walking-dead-the-game-episode-1-free-on-xbla-now


EPISODE 1 - SPOILERS

Wow. Cracking story so far. I've decided to be quite open about my actions ... though I don't even know what I've done. Did Lee do it? I'm guessing it was an accident. EDIT: - 63% of players were honest along with me. A bit surprised but I thought lying would just make thing's worse. My actions would speak for me instead of my past.

The garden / house

The attack was awesome. Taking that zombie down in front of the poor little girl was grim!

The barn

Ended up at the barn. Saved the child. I didn't think you'd have time to save them both. The thing was I knew at that point it would be the choice of the farm OR the road. I didn't want to stay at the farm. The horrible thing is that entered my mind! EDIT: - 49% of players saved the guy rather than the kid. Interesting. I went for the kid first as well it's a child! Survival instinct would lean towards saving the guy as he would probably be more useful. But gut feeling the kid was first.

The Pharmacy

Shit hit the fan here! Then ground to a halt. Can't find the key at the moment. I turned the hints off as I didn't want the screen to be obstructed. I sided with the family I came with and he tried to knock the angry dad out. Only as just at that moment a notification popped up so I couldn't see the option at the bottom. Things have settled but I'm sure they will be a problem once my secrets spill out.

EDIT - 51% of players along with me sided with Larry. I didn't mean to get Kenny punched though. That came back to bite me latter.


The motel

Yeah I gave Irene the gun. What other option was there? She had been bitten and she asked to die. My experience of Zombie outbreaks tells me it was all over for her.Although I'm just thinking ... did someone in the show survive a bite? ... Ahhhh ... shit ... OK ... maybe I'll redo this.

The Pharmacy finale

I saved Doug rather than Carley. Along with 23% of players. CARLEY HAD A GUN! The zombie only had her foot. Doug was pinned to the wall. It looked like he needed my help more. My cold blooded survival instinct would have been to save Carley as she was a brilliant shot.

Quite a powerful story right now! I'll definitely be picking up the whole thing.

Played Ep1 last night, absolutely stunning, LOVED it.
Nabbed Eps 2-5 for 200pts each just now. Got some time off next week and can't wait to plough through them!

*EDIT* There's no way I'm reading through this thread! I genuinely hope Lee and Clem are in each Episode of this, it's daft but what a great bond between them. After each major scene I found myself rushing over to her just to check up on her haha.

Like Swoz, I'm not going to read through this thread until I've completed all the episodes.

Needless to say however, almost done with Episode 3. Shit doth hit the fan, yo!

Just played Ep1 for free - can't believe I missed the sale! After playing the first episode I would have snapped the others up at 200MSP each.
