I swear at my pc....quite a lot. But I've not cried yet, ep 5 could change that however.

It won't. I can smell hyperbole in these tweets.

My guess is this Wednesday or the next.

I'm almost not looking forward to it. Knowing how things stood at the end of 4 there is no way there can be a happy ending.

Oh God no. The ending even at its best will be fucked.

Honestly reading all the Twitter crap for the game yesterday was fucking annoying me, because you can infer spoilers from some of that stuff. They need to shut the fuck up and stick to private chats. Incredibly inconsiderate.

Don't read them then.

I can't exactly control what comes up on my timeline ya know?

How is it a spoiler? Saying "wow, that was great and depressing!" is shocking to you? There's no way things go well for anyone in Episode 5. At all.

Like I said it infers things. Saying stuff like "I can't believe that happened zomg!!??" makes me expect things I may not have normally. And how do you know that? Game could have had a super, sugar coated rainbow ending. Obviously not likely, but who knows?

Spoiler Alert: Episode 5 doesn't end with all of them going for brunch, Lee curing the zombie outbreak, and Clementine getting admitted to Harvard.

Again they could've had those discussions in private. I'm super guarded about spoilers. I want to go in with a clean slate and don't want anything to be influenced by dumb comments.

I guess but I imagine that when you play the game you'll forget all about what you think was spoiled.

Really liked the
"What. In. All. The. Fucks"
comment by justin mcelroy.
Those retweets are getting annoying though.

I picked up Walking Dead on the Steam Halloween Sale. Played through it over the course of the last week. Fuck, that "game" is good. I am hesitant to call it a game necessarily, as I feel I'm just watching a really damn good movie that is lasting upwards of 15 hours or so. Nonetheless, it's definitely on my Best Of list this year.

In other news, Telltale shit is 80% off over at GOG.com. Soooo...yeah. Back to the Future for $4.99 and Tales of Monkey Island for $6.99.

SPOILERZ: You'll make really fucked up choices and everything will be super depressing.

#60 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7096 posts) -

So judging by the fact that the choices video is up for Episode 4, 5 should be this week right? Hopefully?

#61 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4683 posts) -

I hope it comes out soon. I want to dive in and play 2-5.

#62 Edited by _Chad (962 posts) -

I really hope this last episode comes out before the disc release.

#63 Posted by kerse (2114 posts) -

One of these days I'm gonna actually play this, I bought it during the summer steam sale and haven't even booted it up.

#64 Posted by AuthenticM (3736 posts) -

I seriously doubt the game will move me as much as MGS4 did, but we'll see.

#65 Posted by Nottle (1915 posts) -

I hope this isn't just everyone else getting hyped. For me Episode 2 and 3 were the highlights of this series. Everyone was calling Gary "a monster" for writing 4 even though I felt like it didn't really have that much bite to it compared 3.

#66 Posted by Mrsignerman44 (1100 posts) -

Funny, I was thinking about episode 5 today and completely accepted it probably being released at the same time as the disc release. Looks like it's media blackout time.

I don't think the disc release is until December, and Telltale verified a November release a few days ago:

We'll have a Nov release date to announce VERY soon for the season finale of TheWalkingDead. Sit tight, and catch up now!

@kishinfoulux Science says you'll enjoy it more if things are spoiled. But still, I don't see how this is spoiler material. After what happens at the end of Episode 4, a lot can be inferred/assumed on how things will end.
#69 Posted by myketuna (1710 posts) -

Hopefully they release it before Thanksgiving. Playing something so depressing (inferring this from those tweets) would definitely make everyone try and enjoy their time with family that much more. Telltale is doing the public a service.

#70 Edited by Rafaelfc (1350 posts) -

the only annoying thing about all the tweeting is that I can't just play episode 5 right now, and that saddens me.

other than that, great to see people talking about the walking dead.

#71 Posted by Brodehouse (9966 posts) -

The ending seems pretty inevitable to me, ever since Episode 2 or so. Lee (Episode 4 ending thing) wasn't an OHHH SHIT moment, it was "of course he did". I'm not worried about spoilers; I think if it's going to be impact up it'll be because of writing and presentation, not just KABLOW twist.

The only real twist in the series was halfway through 3.

The good news is that I was (probably) waaaaaayy off with my prediction of early-mid December for the downloadable release date. I honestly figured it would be launched alongside the retail release and even then be pushed back a week to make sure everything went smoothly.

Thanks for the heads up, OP. Time for me to go live under a rock for the next few weeks, because I won't even chance getting spoiled on this.

#74 Edited by Chaser324 (6587 posts) -

@AndrewB: Still no official word from Telltale. If it isn't released this week, my assumption is that it will be out the last week of November.

I've been holding off on playing Episode 3 & 4 until I have 5 downloaded and ready to go. I want the rest of the experience all in one big shebang.

@rebgav: Maybe. I guess I'll delete that post.
