Request: PSN Avatars to compliment PS3 theme - Walking Dead

posted by foreverflash on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users

Hi Telltale!

So I just bought the season pass on PSN. Extremely excited to get going...

I'd like to request that you release a PSN Avatar pack to compliment the nice Premium Theme you have with buying the season pass. I want all my PSN friends to see I'm a walking dead fan! Plus having PSN avatars is another great way to advertise as anyone who has one showing for their profile, all their friends can see that.

Thank you!:D

  • I agree. I am currently using the Resident Evil Zombie for my avatar. A Walking Dead one would be great

    Well Telltale seems to be pretty good at keeping in touch and communicating with fans, so I'm hopeful they get a chance to read this!

    Can a Telltale employee at least let me know they saw this? I really think it's important you release an avatar pack to compliment the PS3 theme. Please let me know your thoughts...

    I saw this post and think its an awesome idea! Its get a Lee or Larry avatar for myself in a heartbeat! (so to speak). But i'm just a lowly designer. I have no idea what it'd take to make this a reality.

    Well, it shouldn't take too much to make it a reality. I mean, all they are is profile avatars! Something that everyone uses everywhere on almost every social median. Since Telltale authorized, designed and released a theme for PS3 already I figured this was not asking too much.

    From my experience in these matters (which I have some) it's always the developer who has to first design these customizing items (like themes and avatars) then the publisher who puts in approval with Sony or Microsoft if it's for their networks. Telltale is both a publisher and developer right? Easy peazy!

    Thank you Mark for the reply!

  • instead of taking care of minor things, they should focus on adding a invert Y axis option. Stupid telltale

    I've requested customizable items before with other developer and game forums, for places like PSN and XBL, and at some point I always get this kind of response. I mean NO disrespect at all, so please don't take me the wrong way here. The argument is: let the developer focus on "more important things". Well, let me say, that in my opinion, having a few little profile avatars released on PSN would hardly take any focus away from development. We're talking about something that can be made and released in a matter of hours, if not minutes.

    Only reason I ask about this sort of thing is because I've seen it happen so many times, where a nice theme is released (in this case the theme you get free with season pass on PS3) and complimenting profile avatars (or on Xbox, gamer pictures) are not released with it; and it just doesn't make sense to do this. It's like doing something only half way. I love Telltale and this game and I just want to proudly show that. The only way I can do that on PS3 is with a profile avatar.

    it might take few minutes to fix that for a regular company, but I doubt tellfaketales would do that.They released an incomplete game with no basic control options, and @#$ the gamers. No statement released, nothing to update us. I paid 20 bucks for this incomplete game that I can't play.

  • Forums really need "ignore" options

    I wasn't asking for a "fix", I was asking for PSN avatars to compliment the premium theme they made (which you could only get with a season pass purchase). I've played a good bit of the game so far and it was pleasantly enjoyable. It's not an FPS or RPG if that's what people are expecting, but it is very solid for an adventure game. I saw nothing wrong with the controls. You don't need control "options" since there you don't have much control of the character or environment BY design. It's designed to have limited control. When you go into a game like this understanding it's design then you are not disappointed. This purely a story driven, minimal interaction and control adventure game, done well.

    I know some forums do have this option, I think. Though I don't remember ever using it...
