The Wolf Among Us - The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1: Faith
Disclaimer: don't expect proper grammar because english isn't my first language
Ok, so EP1 starts with me throwing Woody, violent and drunk, through a wall and crashing on Toad's car. I guess that some people might find it "funny" or "lulzy", but to me, that felt cheap and a step back from being a serious attempt at something noir. I mean, I should have the option of knocking him out somehow, not play Superman. And what about Toad's car? Who's going to pay for that? I'm berrating him for not affording his glamour at the start, but now I'm asking him to just forget the fact that I cost him money? Is Bigby a NARCISSIST?
Skip to the Trip Trap. I'm asking questions and Woody shows up. Surprisingly, he doesn't want to fight me, but Gren does. He turns into whatever monster he's supposed to be and recklessly screws up Holly's place as if she doesn't matter to him despite berrating Bigby for not doing enough for her sister. Bigby wins the fight and is left with a very screwed up decision: to rip or not to rip Gren's arm. If you're the "lulzy" kind of person, you definitely ripped off his arm and giggled, but to me, these ridiculous options make me wonder why Bigby even thought about doing that. Defending yourself against someone that wants to kill you is one thing, but tearing his goddamn arm off after he's beaten and whimpering is another thing. Is Bigby a SADIST? How the hell would Fabletown government let him get away with it? Who's going to pay for Holly's place?
"What's that, Bigby? You wrecked someone's appartment and car? I'm sure that there was no other way."
"What's that, Bigby? You wrecked someone's bar and tore off a guy's arm? At least you didn't kill anyone."
"What's that, Bigby? You're torturing a person that's linked to someone's murder? My god, I'm going to make sure that you'll be villified everywhere and that no-one will ever hire you again!"
I just can't look past these things...
