Is anybody else dreading episode 5?

#1 Posted by Sgtpierceface (624 posts) -

This is the first time a game that I've actually not wanted to play a game that I'm excited for. On one hand, I really want to see how everything wraps up, but on the other, I am so god dam scared that I'm going to screw something up and someone's going to die. Anybody else have the same feeling or am I crazy?

Nope, I'm just looking forward to playing it. It's usually really depressing to play, but I wanna see how this thing ends. Evidently ending a game is a hard thing to do :o

Clem needs to die. She has been bothing me the whole time and acting scared when I brutaklly murder someone close to us.

You can either kill all the zombies, control all the zombies, or create a combination of humans and zombies to replace them all.

No.

I'm dreading it because after those credits roll, that's it. No more The Walking Dead until season 2, and who knows how long that'll be?

Isn't this TaleTells best selling game they've ever made? I would assume they are already working on the second seasons script.

I'd also like to point out that this didn't have to be the end of The Walking Dead for you. Have you read the comic? It's fantastic. Way better than the TV show and it has the same narrative style this game does.

@Landon: I believe it is, but who knows how long they would take to work on it? I think it would take them a good quarter to figure out how to outline the story, do voice acting, animate, etc.

Also, I think you and I could both agree that even though the comics and the show are superb, there's no substitute to making the decisions and choosing the responses yourself in the games.

Yep. Dreading the fact that bad shit is about to go down, and also because this awesome series is about to conclude.

Not dreading it, particularly. I've already mentally prepared myself for Lee--and a good part of my Clem Rescue Team--to die horribly. But if Clementine herself doesn't make it...

Fuck. I totally am dreading it now!

Oh.....fuck you.....I was not expecting a line like that. LOL respect.

You have no idea. Have not played any of them yet, and me and my roommate are going to marathon the whole thing in one sitting. Can't even imagine the state we'll be in when it's all over.

i'm really looking forward to it, and i hope they have the stones to do the right thing- make it brutal, emotionally difficult, and substantial. i'm totally alright to see anyone die (EXCEPT CLEM)- and frankly i think some should. i also hope next season focuses on an entirely new cast.

edit: actually, i had a quick think, but i've decided it WOULD be okay if they take out clem. if only because it will really demonstrate tell tale's not afraid to write a very mature, realist, and ultimately depressing story- and that would signify a real achievement in videogame storytelling. death scenes are terribly sad, but they're sometimes truly beautiful. but that doesn't mean i'd enjoy it- might have to look into some antidepressants should that come to pass...

You should work for Bioware Mythic.

I just want Clem and Lee to live in a cottage, all happily ever after. I just want the game out already.

I'm also going to wait and play this on Thanksgiving. It'll really lighten the holiday.

I gotta see how if all ends. Even if tears will be shed. :(

I bet they're going to make you choose between Clementine and Lee. Calling it!

#20 Posted by Nightriff (5079 posts) -

I'm just afraid they are going to completely fuck it up...

That's really not that hard of a decision for most people I got to assume.

Well perhaps not, but I don't think there's anyone else who comes close to Clementine in terms of emotional investment for most people.

Why I think it is such an easy decision. How I've played the game since ep. 1 is Clem is my number 1 priority and fuck everything and everyone else, Lee included.

I'm totally dreading it, but not for the same exact reason as the OP. I know that no matter what, some fucked up things are going to happen in this episode. Ever since

Carley was killed with no way to save her

I've realized that sometimes in this series, it doesn't matter how hard I try or nice I am, people will die.

That said, I really really hope that Kenny dies in this episode, I've been trying to get him killed since episode 1.

I'm pretty sure there are more seasons to come, so I doubt this will be the definite end.

The deal for this game was inked in early 2011, and we saw the first episode roll out in April 2012, about a year later. Assuming they have a similar development process for season 2, and assuming they get underway with it soonish, I would pencil it in to start releasing about this time next year...at the latest.

Assumptions!

I'm picking the red ending.

In that situation, I think 0% of people will choose to keep Lee alive.

I'm looking forward to it, but I just know that me not getting that hoody for Clem back in Episode 2 is whats going to fuck everything up!
