Will Bosco change his gimmick in season 2?

Even though, I find his disguises as people from different ethnic groups amusing, I realize that it is quite limited to several few european(which seems to be the trend in the game to avoid any complaints from other gamers I think) unless Telltale goes with the more stereotypical ethnics groups protrayed as convinence store clerks as depicted in the media (which I do not encourage)

I mean all I think left are: Italian, Greek, German, Canadian, and maybe Southern.

With that said, I don't think the diguises can last to season 3. So I was wondering if there is a possibility that we see Bosco doing some other disguises like putting on a dog suit and pretending to be Sam's relative or dressing up like another telltale character from the texas hold up game.

    We have our Episode 1 Ethnic Stereotype, ladies and gents! The Black American Man!



    That really is not a black american male stereotype... it is a convenience store stereotype though, because the stereotype of an urban convenience store is that it gets robbed all the time.

  • Technically, that's an Indian-American stereotype with the poorly-run (in)convenience store.

    I agree with numble here since it is a convenience store stereotype seein how characters like Apu from the Simpsons and other characters who owns a convenience store get robbed all the time and has guns over the counter (like the ones in Leisure suit Larry.)

    I haven't seen a lot of african american men on t.v. that works at a convenience store and get robbed left and right. If telltale was going for the stereotypical route, why not Bosco is speaking in jive or ebonics? I don't see why him being purple-grey is really a stereotype, so I might be ignorant in that

  • A stereotypical Black American Man would be the one robbing the store, eh? :rolleyes:
    Kidding.

  • I'd love for Bosco to be a Jamaican in one episode. He would be all like "yeah mon, rob my store, I don't care..."

  • If Bosco survives to see Season 2. They are after him, y'know.

  • We should come up with a list of new gimmicks he could use.

    I think he should keep on hiring new cashiers for his store, so that he can hide in his anti-thermonuclear bunker 500ft under ground. However, he keeps on checking on the cashier, and ends up butting in every two seconds because he's so worried something is going to go wrong without him there, and ends up firing the cashier, only to worry about a newly hired one the next day.

    I can just imagine...

    Cashier: "So you would like to buy that slice of cheese on special? That would be $12.95 with a tax of $4.91."
    Sam: "Why thank you, I guess I'll be on my wa-"
    Bosco: "Hellllooo! Where's the cheese I.D. check? You didn't even check the money to see if it was counterfeit! What's wrong with you? You know he's up to something. Let me take over...

  • I'd like to see Bosco and Sybil in Season 2 (to not make Season 2 would be nuts!), but I'd prefer to see them less and to introduce 2-3 main characters and the ability to drive around town. By driving around town I mean a map where you can select from a couple places to go, just a little bit of freedom would really improve things. :)

  • I wonder if Sybil and Bosco will ever delevop a romantic relationship since both of them do seem to change themes/jobs in each case.
