We need a Choice Comic/DLC like in Mass Effect: Genesis

I'm sure many of you know of the save problems this game was plagued with for many users.

I myself didn't have my choices carried over throughout Season 1 which was disappointing.

Now what would be nice is if we could get a Comic like Mass effect, that quickly runs through the back story of all the important choices, and lets you select what you want, to generate a save file that we can use.

Honestly, i feel like this should have been implemented for this DLC release, but at the very least we need something for Season 2 (it would have to include the DLC choices too though)

Can we get some word from TellTale about this? I really don't think it's worth playing the game with random choices selected for me.

  • That's a good idea, especially useful if you get a corrupted save file.

  • Please do this telltale, its a great idea. I just reinstalled walking dead to play 400 days, to find that all the save files that were in steam cloud are no longer recognized by my game :/

    I love the walking dead, but the amount of issues this game has with saves is frankly, unforgivable. Something like this is the very least telltale could do for people that keep getting screwed over with these save issues.

  • Not to sound like a butt, but I just replayed it every time I got wiped. I loved the series enough that it didn't bug me. Heck I even bought it and played it on 360. Also thinking about getting it all over for Vita as well. I will agree it could be a great idea for new people(or those who lost saves) for season 2.

  • I was thinking about this yesterday. I wasn't sure if I still had my saves and there was no way I was going to play 400 Days with a brand new save file, so I was already dreading having to replay all of Season 1 again trying to approximate the same choices I'd made. And Season 1 takes, what, like 8-10 hours to get through?

    Luckily, I didn't lose my saves, but I do think it'd be a good solution to go the Mass Effect route and let people quickly choose all game-affecting choices for Season 2 if they don't have their save files handy.

    Hey, thats fine for some people, but i don't want to replay 10 hours just get my save back :/

    It sucks, because it's completely taken away the excitement for the DLC/Season 2 for me...

    Would have been a day 1 buy, but whats the point without the personalised experience :/

  • I would definitely prefer Telltale do this than what happened with, I think it was Dragon Age, where the mod community made one instead.

  • Or at least a tool which can let us SEE which choices were made :/ I dont wanna go into the next season blind :/

    But any interactive motion comic that could deliver the same personalized experience would be nearly as long as playing the game. That's the one thing I hated about ME: Genesis (aside from the bland writing, at least) - it only counted the half dozen or so big decisions, but every side quest (and even a couple main quests - poor Feros), supporting character, and ounce of nuance was lost. I understand WHY it had to be that way - otherwise it'd be a 20 hour long comic - but it still left out so much.

    A Walking Dead: Genesis would be the same. You might end up with a game that says "You killed Doug, Larry, Ben and cut off your arm" and that's it. I guess something is better than nothing but it's hardly a personalized experience.
