Playing this for a few ours. I am right now in Chapter 2. I must say that this phone system seems very limited. Also Is there actual a way to back of from your reply's to see the other options? It happens quite a bit that this was not the thing i wanted to ask in the end^^

Also are there any decisions though just a choice or are all decisions are made from these phone reply's?

Other than that I enjoy it so far even though faris is really annoying^^

All choices are handled through the phone. It's a neat system in concept but it's not executed very well, and you pretty much need a guide if you want to see all the game has to offer without getting headaches trying to figure out how.

This is really nice, thanks duder! Sorry to ask for even more, but it would be nice to see the recap articles that have stuff like the guest top 10 lists in them.

You can listen to it here: https://c418.bandcamp.com/album/minecraft-volume-beta

I listened to it all today and it's all quite excellent. It's very much in the same style as the peaceful piano music currently in the game but with a bit more variation. I feel like it's actually a fairly big improvement, C418 has gotten much better as a musician over the years. Track 16, Taswell, is a tribute to Ryan Davis and is one of my favorites of the album. None of it is implemented into the actual game yet but hopefully it happens soon.

Pretty exciting, but I wonder what this means for Walking Dead Season 2.

All I can think of now is that this will greatly impact how good Season 2 can be

Same. I really hope the guys at Telltale can pull of a good Season 2 of TWD. But I have a feeling that without Jake and Sean, it won't be nearly as compelling.

"This is a fantasy based on reality."

After watching that trailer, I am very curious what reality they're referring to, because it certainly isn't the one I'm familiar with.

It doesn't come off very well in this video because it's set in what appears to be an old European style city with gothic cathedrals and such, but the game is ostensibly set in a very modern style world with modern cities, complete with realistic looking apartment blocks, skyscrapers, roads, cars, business suits, etc. They're basically saying "What if we had Final Fantasy style magic and crystals in a modern Earth setting?" (not actually set on Earth)

@chiablo: This is not really true. They obviously know the person they're going with, know their price, and know the amount of time it would take themselves to do it. You'd be really surprised just how much game development work is contracted out. Almost every game developer big and small constantly contract out small jobs like this. It's a very regular thing and is actually done to keep costs down.

I have been having this same problem, and am also using Chrome, so I did a little research. I noticed that it wasn't just the video that was stuttering every second or so, but page scrolling as well, so it's not the video player. I opened up chrome dev tools and did some profiling and noticed that my "After the Deadline" extension was the only thing actually doing anything and it was firing a timer ever second. So, after disabling the After the Deadline extension for GiantBomb, it seems this issue has been resolved for me.

Hope that helps.

I want to thank you for this. The problem is CPU usage, and the site using way too much of it. I bugged dave over twitter about it while the site was in beta and I was in the process of submitting a bug report about it when I saw this thread. For whatever the reason, After the Deadline uses up a crazy amount of CPU on this site only, and it increases its CPU usage over time as you idle on a page. This makes videos choppy, text editing laggy, etc. Now I can watch videos on the site again!

You should strongly consider using Panko instead of Fritos. You lose the comedy value, but you'll also lose a lot of the calories, and you wont lose any flavor. Add a dash of salt to the breading to compensate.

An interesting part of that article is the bit on stores. In the future, people may be able to create their own stores on Steam and tie into the Steam API. Craziness.
