Here is a video of my problem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85hgFadX33c&feature=g-upl
I'd like to just select Begin Episode, but apparently, that's Tell Tale Games' way of saying "New Game." To me it's very misleading and now I am under the impression that there is no fix for this on the 360 and I will have to restart the game entirely. Which is unfortunate because I may put down JP for awhile and move on to some other stuff. Which is also unfortunate because I did enjoy this game very much, despite a lot of flaws, but this is the one that bothers me.
I'm not sure how something like this makes it through quality assurance. I mean the UI is very misleading to the player. It says "Begin Episode" so therefore I should be able to begin the episode I have selected. That makes the most sense considering when scrolling to Episode 4 the Begin Episode option is greyed out.
Someone in QA should have hinted at this and suggested a New Game option. As well as the Begin Episode option properly starting the episode selected. So that's my problem I hope it can be fixed. I'd rather not restart from Episode 1 until I actually have to; when I complete the game.
To get more high-level into this. Here's how this problem first arrived, at least how I see it. I completed Episode 2 and in my haste to get the achievement for getting to the water tower without slipping up I hit start and reloaded the scenario before Episode 3 fully loaded.
Big deal I thought, because I just hit Begin Episode to start Episode 3.
Well, no that isn't the case, so I selected load game and now the game locks up. I'm wondering if it's because the save file became corrupted because I decided to go achievement hunting.
If this is in fact the case then I do need to restart from the beginning, however though, the game should still recognize the fact that I have completed Episode 2 and unlocked Episode 3 and should let me begin from Episode 3 by selecting Begin Episode.
