Doug?!

Am I the only person on Earth who chose to save Doug?!

Carly is a woman, and kind of a hottie. You can tell she's sweet on Lee. And all I see is, "Carly had the gun, so I saved Carly!"


..... WHAT?!

Are you people listening to that statement? She had the gun... WHY DOES SHE NEED SAVED!? Doug had no weapons, defenseless. Carly had the freaking gun IN HER HAND. If this b**** is too stupid to even use the gun (I'm not even going to get into the battery debacle), what is she good for? She started off as a good shot, and then suddenly forgot how to use her gun.

So I'm a male player, and I chose to save Doug. Because he was defenseless and I thought homegirl could hold her own. I was wrong, and I don't even miss her.

That's my rant of the day.

  • @Epic Kiwi said: Not only that, but then he yells at the zombies AGAIN to alert them once you've taken the keys. Notice how they don't even start turning away from the TVs until after he shouts at you. Yeah, I'm glad I went with Carley. >_>


    LOL. Yeah, I noticed that too. I chalk that up to a slight error on TTG's part, though. The walker turn should have been shown before Doug yells. Otherwise, if they were not already turning (as the shown scene suggests), he would not have had anything to react to with, "Oh, shit!"

  • @Jennifer said: I chose to save Doug as well, also for his electronics knowledge. I was surprised when I finished the episode on Xbox that only 26% of the other players saved him.

    well i think on the first play through most people including me saved carly because she has a gun and is a good shot and so she initially offers more usefullness

    of course in later episodes this may and probably will change, like if you save carly you'll have some tech problem you can't solve and if you saved doug you'll come across some form of combat situation that maybe harder..or another person like irene...

  • @MarkoH01 said: Same here. Thought that the secret would be safe if I let Carley die. It was a big surprise for me when Larry told me that he did also know :( So I saved Carley on my second playthrough :)

    I'll kill him in episode 2 ;)

    and hopefully I'll manage to kill Duck aswell! :)

  • I wonder how many people would have save Doug if he was the reporter with the gun and Carley had been the electronic wizzard...

  • I choosed Doug over Carly, because Carly had a gun, and Doug didn't.

  • Well my first thought was Carly had a gun, so at last that's helpful. After turning the TV's on Doug makes a statement about being good at electronics can be helpful. I sort of tuned that out because I thought there wouldn't be much electronics since the power would be down.

    After choosing Carly it bothered me more and more. Doug's ability was electronics, which on the surface seems less important then someone with a gun. I now think I made a huge mistake by choosing her. Someone with a gun isn't hard to find. But I've got a feeling having someone who can use electronics is going to mean more then I gave it credit for.

  • Can Doug fix Clementines Walkie talkie? If so I might save him next time. Gotta think about whats best for Clem ya know

  • I'm confused as to why people think Doug can fix walkie talkies and restore power. He's an IT guy which is different from being an electrician or engineer or whatever. I doubt he has any sort of skills to fix walkie talkies just because he can memorise universal codes for a remote.

    You are surprised the average 360 users picked the girl with a gun over the guy?

    BTW decision still stands on Doug being my choice.

    Carley is a complete moron while Doug only lacks common sense.

    Dunno if you mean me specifically I just wondered if he could It'd make Clementine feel better if he could and that'd be worth saving him . I chose Carley in both my playthroughs because even though Carley might just be an Sharpshooter Savant and quite incompetent at everything else theres another reason to choose her.

    She knows Lee's secret. so in my head this scene plays out
    Larry: You asked for this Lee! Hey everyone Lee is Lee Everett an murderer who killed a senator and got a life sentence in jail!
    Kenny: Lee Saved my boy's life!
    Carley: I'm a reporter I already knew that
    Clementine: Lee told me that.
    Larry: Seriously?! I've been trying to blackmail him with this and none of you care?
    Lilly: Dad you did What?!
