Kenny Episode 1 Choices Glitch (Spoilers)

posted by genericHenle on - last edited - Viewed by 1.4K users

In Episode 1 where Larry is trying to kill Duck I told Kenny to reason with him. Then I yelled at Larry telling him that he wouldn't lay a hand on anyone. In episode 2, Kenny says that I wanted to throw Duck out of the building and that he doesn't trust me with his family. I realize that this happens because of the "reasoning" option. This just seems like a huge oversight since I basically said I was going to beat the hell out of Larry if he touched Duck and Kenny said he trusted me completely at the end of 1.

    Yes, Kenny has gone from being a friend in episode 1, to an enemy in episode 2. I don't care that Larry was an a*******, I began to understand that he was just protecting his daughter. I owed it to LIlly, to help save her dad. He's the only family she had. As for kenny, throwing a rock at his head.. that is just f***** up and there were kids present. I can see that kenny is going to be a loose cannon.

  • I have the same issue. I had no intention of allowing Larry to throw Duck out but saw no cause for making an already tense situation worse. I told Kenny to reason with him and when that still didn't work I stepped in threatening to stop Larry by force.

    Kenny and Katjaa both thanked me later, Kenny even going so far as to say we sure told that old man (or something along those lines). I consoled him about Shawn and generally was left feeling he was my closest ally among the group. Even in the preview for the next episode Lilly was going on about how I always had it in for her dad and such.

    Yet, the stats showed me siding with Larry and in ep.2 Kenny is antagonistic towards me frequently and states that I'd chosen to side against him when he and Duck needed my support. Much the same as the others in this thread by the end of ep.2 he and I seemed to be at odds. Though throughout the episode I argued for cooperation between him and Lily, both of whom seem to see this as a slight, and sought to help Lily with her father before condemning him.

    Not criticizing that bit merely saying that it undoubtedly lead further to our falling out at the end of the episode.

    Not to mention when I needed him to help me against Danny St. John he hesitated and Lily instead came charging in to save me. (I'm assuming this is due to my choice to help Lily with her father instead of our running disagreements though I'm not certain.)

    As far as him being more negative as some have said he seems. I will say that it's been three months, food is strained, and pretty much everyone seems more understandably frayed.

    In case this is relevant I've been playing on the xbox. I also play with all notifications off so I may be missing something that's made more clear with them on. I'm not certain how informative they are.

  • It's seriously frustrating and I hope it gets patched/fixed. I really dont mind replaying since the episodes dont last that long anyway

  • Yep. Same problem here, I hope they fix it too. :(

    Character relationships and player choice are the crux of this game and it would be horrible to know that those mechanics weren't functioning properly.

    I'm not sure if this is even relevant or maybe you already fixed it but when i did the reason thing and then defend Kenny. In the meat locker my character said we should give the benefit of doubt or something like that to larrry

  • ok peeps

    i've done fresh play through

    Kenny WILL be lee's best mate and buddy and reasonable in ep2 if you do the following
    ep1

    save duck
    take his side by choosing kick his 'larry' ass duck stays he ain't bit
    console him
    feed duck energy bar

    ep2
    take kenny's side
    feed duck cheese and crackers then kenny the apple
    tried to give stuff to katjaa but she said no
    then help kenny kill larry

    and lilly hasn't changed a lot if at all..

  • Seems like they would have fixed that for episode 2, as that was a known bug in the stats at the end of the episode 1. I did a rewind to pick a different option in ep 1, just in case it wasn't just a stat bug.

    I think jake said that all the options were weighted equally in the questions thread.

    What if Lee say Kenny that he should reason with Larry with the same choices you've posted?

  • @The_Ripper said: What if Lee say Kenny that he should reason with Larry with the same choices you've posted?

    In EP 2 Kenny will say you tried to throw duck out, when you talk to him at the swing. and in the meat locker, when kenny is trying to convince you to kill Larry he would say just like you tried to throw duck out.

    Then they didn't change anything from Episode 1.
