@wuddel: Not totally sure the save bug is totally gone, but I believe they've mitigated it considerably compared to when the game first launched.

As for total time without DLC, I spent about 14 hours, but I did explore the environments pretty thoroughly, and not everyone will do that. I'm sure there are people who finished it in like 10 or 11 hours. It would feel like rushing to me, but I could believe that you could get through each episode in about 2 hours or very slightly over.

Even with my thorough playstyle, the DLC is shorter than any of the episodes. Worth seeing, it's quite cool, but the DLC is more in the region of 1.5 hours, or at the absolute most 2 hours. Comparatively, I spent 2-3 hours each on the five episodes season 1.

I dunno what other save bugs there might be, but the bug I had was incredibly simple to fix. Without DLC I think I clocked in around 12 hours.

There are definitely some save bugs still around. I finished the first episode 3 times and every single time it forgot my decisions.

That's because you made the wrong ones.

(I really need to apologize for the joke because the save bug for The Walking Dead really, really sucks)
