Problem with Larry @ Chapter 1 (Spoilers regarding end)

posted by Nosphorus on - last edited - Viewed by 652 users

Hey guys, first post here and I hope to contribute more during the releases of the Walking Dead episodes.

Let me start by saying that this is only my second Telltale (Hector being the 1st) game that I've bought, however I've been a fan of point/click adventures since I had the capacity to play them and bought this game purely on the impression that the demo left me with.

The only gripe I have about this game is at the end when it demonstrates who you had sided with, Larry or Kenny.
Being a predominant Kenny supporter I was amazed to find out that I had apparently sided with the enemy, even though all of my choices were pro Kenny+Doug apart from one little line that should've had some neutrality. That choice is by trying to reason with Larry about what happens to Duck, even if you had followed up the conversation afterwards backing up Kenny it still shows that apparently I had sided with Larry.

Considering that 50%+ of the user base had also sided with him leads me to think that a lot of us ended up mistakenly supporting someone we didn't intend to.

What's the community's thoughts on this?

  • I think despite the statistics, it still counts as being against Larry if you did all those other things, because I chose Reason with him and then did everything else against Larry, and got "You sided with Larry" at the end, but in the "Next time on The Walking Dead" part it had an argument with Lily where she complained that Lee had gone out of his way to go against Larry, or something along those lines. So I think the statistics don't really matter all that much, and, in the end, the game counts us as being against Larry.

    Yes, you're right. The game counts that you sided with Kenny. I had that trailer too.

    The bug it's in the stats so it would be easy to fix. In the stats said that I was honest with Hershell and that's false too.

  • Yeah, there's something wrong with this entire conversation, and certainly the stats. I was playing without the loyalty pings on, so I can't speak to that.

    I chose Reason With Him, then something about leaving Duck alone. The next thing Larry says is something about how if the boy is bit, we should get rid of him. There's an option in there which is really poorly labelled, something like "Then we throw him out".

    I read this as "Then we throw him out" as in "If he's bit, we throw him out." What this actually meant was "Oh well then, let's throw him out now" and Kenny (and me) is rightfully upset. The final choice I made was that if Larry was to touch the boy, he'd have to kill me first.

    The game treated me as if I had sided with Kenny, but the stats said Larry. My guess is it's because I acted peacemaker, then accidentally sided with Larry, but ended up with siding with Kenny. Maybe any siding with Larry is what counts in the stats.

    I was all ready to reload before the autosave after the mislabeled choice. I was going to be pretty upset if Duck got tossed out by accident.

  • Thing is if you don't take sides Larry realizes he made a mistake when Kaatja points out duck isn't bitten but Kenny gets pissed at lee. however you can make it up to kenny and give duck an energy bar. in episode 2 says they have to check out and see if someones body bitten because we all thought Duck was bitten. Causing Lee to look pained. but Lilly doesnt yell that you didnt side with her dad and kennys tone isn't spiteful it's "Look dude no double standards allowed here"and honestly he's right

  • Can we get any confirmation on if this is a end episode stats issue or if it's because of the choices via dialogue? At the moment the odds are shifting more and more in favour of Larry (Yesterday it was 45% Kenny)

  • Maybe more people are just trying to keep Lee from pissing off the angry old guy and thats being counted as Siding with Larry.

  • Looks like the 'bug' definitely affects the choices in #2, with Kenny saying that I sided with Larry, and given the outcome of that event... yeah. I'm starting the game over from the very beginning to try and work around this issue.

  • And if we tell him: "We'll kick his ass", but in the final one, "I'm sorry Kenny"[Let Him], we will side with Kenny or Larry????

  • I know this game remembers every choice because when it shows lees crash he shouted Oh SHIT which is what i chose

  • @Nosphorus said: That was my assumption, on my first playthrough I tried to reason with Larry and the second conversation choice I told Kenny to hit Larry (Due to timer nearly running out).

    At the end of the chapter it still said I had sided with Larry though.



    Yeah that was odd.

    Once I went for another playthrough on my "I hate Kenny Rampage" I wanted to choose something that was not on Kenny's side but also not on Larry's side. But the game end up making Lee start yelling and what not.
