  • Sucks. Hopefully Telltale can help this guy out.

  • @piccobello said: Creepy story. Though, I am wondering why this story is made public just one day before the release. The PAX was held in the end of August. Even with transportation it could have been made public in mid september...

    seems a bit suspect to me




    From what the reddit thread says, the owner had been trying, for two months, to get some closure to this, with little or no help on the matter. It seems like bringing it to light on the internet is his last attempt, bringing to light the matter and airing telltale's 'dirty laundry.' Suffice to say, it seems to be working. People lending their support and showing their displeasure with their wallets. Of course, they may just be saying "I'll never purchase the game now!" We all know how internet boycotts tend to crumple in upon themselves.

  • The timing of this is suspicious to me what with the release of the game being tomorrow, yet PAX happened in August.

    Also, the photos need resizing as they're messing up the thread size.

  • i dont care whats happening right now with this siuation all i know is i have been waiting an eternity for a jp game and tomorrow i get it so telltale u atleast have one customer. tanks telltale

  • I made this account specifically to post about this.

    I am never going to buy anything from Tale Tale Games after hearing about this. Absolutely shameful.

  • Weird first this thread is deleted i get an explanation from the mod that I fully understand.
    And now it´s back up again ??

    It happened in August, according to the guy. I'm not entirely sure why he's just posted about it on Reddit; it probably didn't occur to him before.

    Also, here are some random comments from the Reddit thread that I came across:

    Order:Cancelled. Time to go get a good book..any recommendations?

    AyeGee 1 point 13 minutes ago
    BOYCOTT!

    CastorTroyMX 1 point 8 minutes ago
    I was on the fence about buying the game, but definitely count me out. You got screwed, bro.

    ueoiai 1 point 6 minutes ago
    Screw everything about that. I am hence boycotting and officially retracting the recommendations I have given friends regarding TellTale games.

    Sweet Jeep! I'll boycott the game till this is resolved.

    Fuck that bullshit. I'm not buying any of their games, and I'll make sure my buddies don't, either.


    If a cheque isn't already in the mail, then I'm not sure why not... it seems like they'll lose more money by NOT reimbursing him at this point.

    I guess "the man" can't silence protest!

  • Make that two customers. I do hope telltale owns up and fixes this but I'm not buying all the outrage about this. Yes telltale us at fault but in the end stuff happens. If I were in Boomerjinks's shoes I'd br just as upset about it but I'm not gonna throw up my hands and say I'm not buying this game just because that happened.

  • Sorry but I'm still going to buy this game and every telltale game..... The guy has now got his publicity, telltale should pay for damages, end of story... But I'm still not losing out on playing this awesome game for someone else's Jeep. I admit it's completely selfish of me, but fuck it, I'll be punching raptors tomorrow
