Loose ends to tie up in Episode 5

posted by Mysticales on - last edited - Viewed by 614 users

Hey all, I figured I would start a thread for Telltale to easily gander. Eppy 5 is coming, while I am sure the bulk of it is lined out. I figured now that we played Eppy 4, we should point out any possible loose ends, comments and so that they may be able to address or clarify for us somehow in Eppy 5.

For me its:
1: Einstein statues at the clock tower??
2: How does Marty telling the younger Doc who he is change things in the future? Or was this how their friendship even started to begin with!
3: Do we get to see how 2 Deloreans even happened to begin with?
4: Now that Docs inspriation changed... seems even IF they get things back on track in the timeline, things are going to be a new altered state. Doc never saw the movie, but the clocktower did still set things back on track it seems. So does this alter in a sense the Doc we knew?
5: It seems 1885 was unaltered. So Its still odd.. that if Doc never built the machine to begin with, did those adventures still happen somehow? Kinda odd how this whole timeline thing is playing out after being so altered.
6: Makes me wonder (and suspect in my mind) who the real Speakeasy arsonist is... heh.

Misc Comments:
1: No Hoverboard? Comon now! lol
2: No mention of Ednas Brother after all this time?
3: Comon Clara! Use that Time Train already and slap Doc back into his old self! (Kinda bugs me that she isnt around)
4: You know... Edna really could use some happiness after everything we saw.
5: The way in my mind to fix the timeline right now... I have this thought in my mind, to Quote WOPR. "The only winning move is: Not to play" heh. Meaning somehow either destroy at the source the whole 30s adventure or something heh. This timeline really is already altered to where things will be diff in 1986. Tho its cool. =)

Anyways if others have loopholes and ends to suggest, might be a good time while its still early. =)

    Well they dont have to answer every one but there are some that are mandatory; for one thing the speakeasy mystery.

  • Well if it werent for the age gap I would say make her hook up with Uncle Joey later in life.
    At least her attitude would keep him out of jail. :p

  • I dunno, but somehow I see the final episode doing on of the 'Lost' type twist things, where we'll end up back where we were in the beginning again. Very last minute Edna's shoe, and the automatic retrieval system will be explained. Then they'll go all the way back to when REAL doc arrives in the 1930's and stop him getting arrested to start with.

    With the way the releases have been? Buggy and glitchy. The story better be worth it. Cause if that is the case this would not be better than say the Back to the Future Saturday Morning Cartoon.

  • I don't know if anyone else has noticed this...I'm sure of it though, and maybe others have mentioned it on these forums but I haven't seen it.

    Throughout the game, a man and a woman wearing greyish clothes can be seen in 1931 and 1986 at various times and locations. Driving a green car around the Courthouse square, sitting in the speakeasy, at one point Doc or Marty accidentally bumps into the man(not sure when exactly), etc. etc. Anyone else notice them? These could just be "resident of hill valley" extras with no significance, because they never speak and you cannot interact with them. but they always have this blank, ominious look on their face...what a cheap trick if these two surface in OUTTATIME and turn out to be galactic timekeepers or some bullcrap.

    Seriously has anyone else noticed these people or am I just totally insane?

    See, I haven't had that many glitches show up. And I love the story. And I loved the cartoon too.

  • Yeah, I guess I haven't really noticed the little details - but it does seem like they tend to reuse extras.

  • I am still wondering where Mr. Strickland is during all this.... Not around for his own sisters wedding, not really shown up anywhere. I think while if not voice acted, he needs to least maybe walk by in a scene and allow the other chars to comment on him. Least put the man in the game!

  • I agree! I was surprised to not see him in the game, so far.

  • marty should just hire the libyans to take out doc. Problem solved
