  • This episode was great Telltale good job! Had to say had a lot of fun playing detective with Duck too bad he had to die. And @Viner16 Jessabeth is right the group doesn't want anything to do with Lilly so she frees herself from her bonds and makes off with the RV in my playthrough after trying to get me to run away with her but I denied. If you leave Lilly on the streets I wanted to know what happens to the RV, do you just leave it to see if the train is working?

  • Yes he was annoying but it was so sad when he died

  • Sigghhh...

    I know you didn't mean to, but please don't make a thread title saying the exact nature of the spoiler. Not that it matters now. Thanks to SOMEONE, I've already been fucked in that department.

    (Spoiler: That someone has "refill" in their name.)

  • To everybody complaining about "illusion of choice," you really have no grounds for doing so. This game isn't meant to be played with an endgame in mind (not unlike Mass Effect 3). The journey is important. Episode 1 establishes the characters, Episode 2 makes you make the tough decisions, and Episode 3 sends you in on a whirlwind of FUBAR. You can't expect to be in control of everything all the time. People will die and that's something you can't control a lot of the time, even if you're the main character. That's something Episode 3 was showing us. What lasts now is the impressions your decisions make on the group, including yourself. I think everyone will end up dead (besides hopefully Clementine) by Episode 5 anyways, so will every decision you make with the dead people matter in the end? Just like in life, what counts is what you make of what time and opportunity you have with others, even if it doesn't last. Of course, if Clementine IS the sole survivor, then pretty much everything Lee has done throughout the game will resonate with her. That's the ending you should be thinking of.

    Yeah that's true I guess. I hope lee doesn't die in the end though.

  • wow im not feeling the outcome for carly/doug i think telltale has to switch it up some it be better if lets say carly rolled out with lilly.

    Chuck: i like the new guy he stright to the point and real

    Christa: She pretty much a lilly replacement

    Omid: Reminds me of Mark

    Kenny: Shall be a lose cannon more than ever

    Clem: Learning how to handle a glock it could be good or bad but i think its good she can protect herself

    Lee: Just needs to be more blount and tell the truth if you handle him that way.

  • My feelings towards the end of the episode were that it wasn't as good as the others, but when I poked around to figure out why I felt that way, I realized it was just because it was so depressing! I really got to feel for our little band of survivors, and it was painful to see it falling apart. I was especially shocked by Katjaa's actions; as understandable as it was that she would want to kill herself under the circumstances, how could she leave Kenny to go on all alone? And losing Carley hurt, especially with the growing feelings between her and Lee.

    Once again, they prove they really know what they're doing with the zombie scares; the Clembie was terrifying! It only took me a couple of seconds to figure out it must be a dream, but for those two seconds I was freaking out!

    Miscellaneous stuff:

    -Did anyone else notice the canister of Banang?
    -I loved the massive crowd of walkers. O HAI GUYZ, looks like we just aggroed every mob in the zone...
    -But I was a little disappointed that the tanker truck didn't end up exploding and taking them out. To quote Marvin the Martian, "Where's the kaboom?"
