EDIT: I can't believe only 20% of players lit the cigarette at the end. That was such a stylistic way to end the episode.

You still light a cigarette if you pick the "Alright, let's talk." option. I think TellTale agreed with you to the extent that they were gunna have you light one up regardless :p

As for whether things play out differently depending on your choice, you do find out about the moving door and receive the last mirror piece no matter what, but Bigby comes to two different conclusions as to the Crooked Man's motives depending on where you go first. If you arrive at the butcher shop first then he will assume its about money. If you arrive there second, not only does he mention the ribbons of the working girls, but he also believes the Crooked Man's motive to be control over others. It seems like a deliberate difference, especially since Snow directly asks you his motive later at the business office.

I went to the butcher shop first, and still got the option to claim it is about control. And I did, because it is. Doesn't seem to matter which direction you go first as far as that goes, though.

EDIT: Also, I rather liked this episode. I'm kinda the opposite of Alex and Patrick I think...I've not been impressed at all with Season 2 of Walking Dead*, but I'm really enjoying Wolf Among Us.

*Though I'm not fully caught up on it just yet. Haven't really felt like playing the latest episode. Nothing really drawing me back to it.

I believe I fall into the shitty millennial category you're describing

Just to clarify what a "millennial" is*: If you are born between the years 1982 and 2004 (inclusive on both ends), then you are a millennial. (Oh, also: Generation Y is the same thing as "millennials", too, for the record).

*because everyone who uses it [almost exclusively in a derogatory way] seem to think it's people between the age of 15 and 25, when in fact, it is everyone between the ages of 10 and 32. It's such a wide range of people that the use of the term is completely meaningless.

Actually a generation is 15 years, it's

1945-60 Baby Boomers

1960-75 Generation X, No Future

1975-90 Generation Y, the "grunge" generation, Fuck Everything

1990-05 Millenials

2005-20 The internet generation

Not according to the guys who named the Millennials, in the book in which they named 'em: [i]Generations: The History of America's Future, 1584 to 2069[/i] by Strouss and Howe.

Also, the Baby Boomers lasted until around 1962-1964ish. There is no hard or set time length for what a "generation" is. It's an arbitrary grouping of people born within an arbitrary set of dates.

And there is not yet a name for anyone post-2004. The internet generation and the information generation are two names being thrown around, but those are far from being concrete.

Also, the concept art for New York Vinny is pretty great. JUST LOOK AT THAT MAN MUGGIN'.

#6 Posted by Matoyak (270 posts) -

G'luck, Vinny. :) Get us some East Coast Bombcast, is all I request. :) A bombcast for each coast, I say! And a Bombin' in the AM as the string that ties 'em together.

Also, does this mean there's a chance at Bombin' in the AM gaining +1 Vinny? That could be cool.

I, too, would love to find a way to get the premium podcasts onto my Music Bee player. I did try Vahleticar's suggestion (using both my username and my email as my username), but to no avail.

If only Giant Bomb had this attitude towards Monster Hunter.

And honestly, I would argue it's actually easier than both those titles. It's far, far less frustrating and easier to get into. The only hard part of that game is understanding a monster's AI and patterns.

Hell, it's far more satisfying as well. When you beat a monster it's because you have not just outsmarted it, but also out-maneuvered it. It has very little of the random traps and other bullshit you find in Dark Souls and Spelunky.

Even though the Souls series and Monster Hunter are very different games, they're so similar in key ways that they rank as my number 1 and 2 game series of all time.

I'll just point out that Patrick also gave Monster Hunter a shot as well. IIRC, the issue with him continuing on it was that the people he was playing with (8-4) live in Japan. He seemed to like it to some degree, iirc.

It's a video game dude, and he's really just playing into his persona as the Mittani, leader of the CFC. The "They put their dick on the table, and we chopped it off" quote is hilarious smack talk, IMO. If you listen to the Vile Rat podcast that the other guy posted, he's really nice and articulate when he isn't playing into that persona.

If his persona is "being a dick" don't be stunned when people respond to him like he is one. It is funny he has apologists though. Here is a tip, being an asshole in a video game is still being an asshole.

We're talking about EVE Online here. Where scamming and ganking other players isn't just allowed, but seen as a legitimate gameplay choice. Getting upset that the leader of an alliance infamous for scamming and ganking plays into that seems pretty childish to me. Or is smack talk no longer allowed in competitive multiplayer games? Do we all need to be nice and sensitive, lest we dare offend someone's precious feelings? I'd much rather read this guy's actual thoughts and opinions than be fed some censored version.

And none of that changes the fact that he comes across as an asshole. It's one thing to smack-talk in-game, another thing to be talking to a journalist and using the same words and phrases as a 15 year-old CoD player would be using in a CoD match.

EDIT: Actually, no. Your typical 15 year old would know better than to talk like that to a reporter.

Man, that Mittani guy's a dick. It's one thing to smack-talk, another to come across like a 15 year old in CoD.

Great write-up Patrick. Fascinating game.
