It's so obvious how 400 Days ends (Ep. 5 spoilers)

#1 Posted by Choffy (443 posts) -

I can't wait to play 400 Days this week, but there's no way that at the end of this episode, you won't (at some point) play as the two people Clem saw walking at the end of episode 5, right? To me, it's a pretty damn clever way of introducing us to the character(s) we'll spend a majority of the time playing Season 2 with, but it's just so predictable.

What do you guys think?

Clem is dead.

We need to acknowledge this now.

It ends with Joel coming in and breaking everyone's fucking knees.

Anyone catch that near the beginning of Last of Us you totally walk through Clem's backyard?

I still hope that the next season is completely unrelated to the first (I don't mind some of the surviving characters showing up or minor nods) I liked how Clem's story ended and don't think it needs to be continued.

@choffy: My understanding of this DLC is that it bridges the gap between season 1 and season 2. Now, the only way to do that is to explain who those people were off in the distance. So I wouldn't call it predictable really, more that it's fufilling it's purpose. I mean if does what it's intended to do, do you call it predictable? It'd be pretty weird if they say it'll bridge the two seasons and then made no references to season 1. Unless of course it's just setting up the characters for season 2 and holding off on the links to the previous season until then. I doubt it though. It's gonna end with you playing as one of two dudes who are gonna look off in the distance and go "Who's that little girl?".

@choffy: that's not really much of an ending.

I agree. We experienced the the story of that select group of survivors and it's time to head on to something new. For me at least, the best part about the first season was the relationship between Lee and Clementine. And that ended with episode 4.

Is that really a thing? I never noticed it.

I thought this story took place after Season 1 (meaning after Clem saw the two people)?

I believe the stories take pace simultaneously with the events of Season 1.

@khann: It's during and after season 1 from what I understand.

In the trailer you can see the cancer survivor group from episode 4. Which means at least some part of it takes place after episode 4

Why don't you just stomp all over my feelings more?

@bismarck:

Ah right. There is actually an achievement for the DLC that seems to suggest some amount of it taking place during Season 1 as well. I guess being over 400 days does give quite a lot of room for that stuff.
