Episode 4 Warning (NO SPOILERS!)

posted by JesseC25 on - last edited - Viewed by 685 users

I finished Episode 4, and I PROMISE not to post any spoilers in this thread. It is EASILY the best episode so far, and the longest with the most difficult decisions, and EVERY single decision you made in EVERY episode will matter.

Now that I finished it I regret a lot of the decisions I made in episode 2 and episode 3 because they have a huge effect on episode 4.

I know a lot of people are complaining about how they won't have the episode for a while. Take the time to rewind and fix any decisions you aren't happy with.

Also, to all those idiots saying "your decisions don't matter" and "ending will be the same no matter what" have NO idea what they're talking about. Every decision you make matters and now I see that. Every decision you make in this episode will have SERIOUS consequences leading into the next episode and they were SO right when they said all your past decisions come into play.

Take your time when your playing, and think things through!! And enjoy!

Game of the year, HANDS DOWN!

    It came out for PSN on the PlayStation 3 in North America today.

    I think before calling people idiots you should allow them to play it and respond to such a statement.

    And from what I saw of a live playthrough of ep 4, there are factors that are cemented in stone no matter how you play.

    Yeah.

    What I meant is that there are so many people who talk about how all the choices you make, not just in ep.4, but eps 1,2,3, have no real impact -- and trust me, they do.

    I'm just giving everyone fair warning, before starting episode 2, make sure you are really happy with all your previous decisions because they do matter. If I would have known that they mattered THIS MUCH I would have replayed episodes 1-3 before today.

    Thanks for the kind words, Jesse!

  • Well, they better not matter in a stupid way. Like with it did when I saved Shawn over Duck and then I didn't hit Larry when he tried to toss Duck out. I get all this, "you let my son almost die twice" crap. Hey, never mind the fact that I stood up for you, Kenny, when the dad yelled at us. Never mind that while I WAS trying to play the peacemaker with Larry, I made sure I would not let him kick Duck out. I really hated how the choices I made were good enough for Kenny to see me as a good guy in ep 1 ended up being insufficient in ep 2.

    I didn't kill those freeking cannibals but I would rather not find out that killing them is some big crime. They were horrid murderers and deserved to die. If karma hasn't killed them, *I* would have reset and done it myself. I still think it's lame how they died.

    I needed that food from the car, I'm not apologizing for it. The girl was going to be eaten by zombies anyway and no one had EVER done a mercy kill of someone being eaten before. Lilly deserved to rot on the road. Sure, Larry would have survived if I helped him but there was no way on earth I would taken that chance in those circumstances. Yes, I did "fight" Kenny, rather then talking him down, but I didn't throw a single punch and when I finally said "stop the train" for the last time, I felt that this was the game's finest moment of pure, brilliant, pathos. Don't cheapen that moment TellTale, by having him get mad because I didn't talk him down!

    Saying I would reset the game to play it "properly" is a claim I view with suspicion. If I actually feel that way, I might very well look at it as a poor gameplay mechanic, rather then thinking I made the "wrong" choices.

    I'll find out soon though.

  • ...so...you feel justified in every choice you made but if any of them prove to have consequences, you'll consider it a game design fault and not a fault of your choices?
