What you would change about Episode 3

!Spoilers!!

-Why Carly WHYYYYYY!! Telltale your such a tease. Have a huge romance with Carly, have that soft music playing when you talk to her, have her kiss you on the cheek and tell you she thinks about you and than what? lets just remove her from the story. Not to mention she was really becoming a part of the family (aka lee and clem)

-Also, katjaa ! You didnt have to rip out my heart telltale with carly than just completely ... im at a loss of words.

-And finally I wish lilly stayed with the group, hopefully we'll see her again but doubt it... I feel like she could of redeemed herself of something.

- A funny yet serious one, when you were walking around the train trying to get it started and the FREAKING ZOMBIE WOULDNT SHUP UP !!!! WTF! and than chuck with his guitar later but atleast that wasnt terrible to listen to on repeat for a solid 10 minutes.

If you know me, you would know I guaranteed Doug/Carlys death/departure before the episode, and I dont mind the way she was killed but why!! :(:(:(

Overall, brilliant episode telltale, and not to take away from it at all but I wished they did just a few things differently...

Please comment with what you think or better yet wish could of happened to make the episode better

  • @CapnJay said: I'd love for TTG to come to the forum and openly say . "We realized Doug and Carley were going to complicate things by staying alive so we made a contrived excuse to kill them off to save ourselves room for the big Decisions you will make in episode four that we only have to carry into episode five. In Conclusion They died so Episode four and five can be awesome . Their sacrifice will not be in vain."

    haha so true, maybe we will get to pick btw Omid and Christa. it would be funny if ttg is trolling us and we see a Carly/Doug walker (with the one we picked ofcourse) in the next episode just to tell us we could of let them stick around but nahhh

  • I would have another surviving member of the Motel group. Not Lilly/Carley/Larry but maybe either Katjaa or Duck. It just seems like in the trailer for Episode 4 the group doesn't really seem as interesting and Kenny pretty much has nothing to live for, I am sure Chuck is psychotic, Omid and Ben are disposable for obvious reasons and Christa is a bitch. I think Duck surviving would make Kenny want to live for something, I am not sure how they would have made Katjaa die though.

    To be honest instead of Duck surviving I would like Katjaa and Duck to die as normal but I would have liked for Mark to be introduced in Episode 1 as that would make his death more surprising and have more of an impact and to have a new female character introduced in Episode 2 who survives into at least Episode 4 with the group. It would be good if she contrasts with Christa a bit as well.

  • Nothing would of saved the girl at the beginning, she was bitten in the leg before you got the chance to kill the zombies, making her essentially dead meat or a walker.

    Anyways I would have probably changed Carley's death, maybe make it into a choice where you choose to kick one out (Carley/Doug or Ben), but oh well. Still would of preferred if Carley were to stay: she was the most loyal towards Lee and usually had the best out looks on the situations, compared to everyone else who were usually arguing (Kenny and Lilly), complained but really did nothing to change the situation (Larry and Mark), too passive (Katja and Doug to an extent, but he also fits into the Carley category), or overall just don't have a voice within the group one way or another, for some simply because they choose not to speak up. (Ben, Clementine, and Duck)

    Overall I'd say Carley was sort of the voice of reason, along with Katja, and with the two of them gone the group is going to twirl done even farther into dehumanization. I'd defend Doug more, I only really spent time with him in Episode 1, then he died, but if I remember correctly he simply followed orders and really didn't speak up unless he needed too, while Carley constantly has Lee thinking about morale choices he makes.

    So yes, I'd probably say change the killing off Carley and Doug to the last episode, so their characters could have fleshed out better and we would have had a more emotional impact after seeing them gone, as all the characters essentially acted five minutes later like it didn't even happen. (Well they didn't appear phased that someone in their group killed their own for essentially no good reason...)

    I think we can all agree there are more pros than cons if more survived. personally i think if just duck died and lilly left it still would of been great. kenny would have katjaa and carly/doug can remain that character that lee trusts the most. this is not to say the episode isnt perfect but i think it had potential to be better.

    I completely agree, tt didnt really give us enough time to get to know chuck, omid or christa... so i really just dont like the vibe from the current group. i think having carly/doug OR lilly still would add to the plot

  • I would have liked the option to shoot Lilly instead of leaving her on the roadside (or allowing her to steal the RV)

  • I'd change i.e. fix the release date issues.

  • I miss Carley D:. I only really like Chuck of the new survivors. Christa bitches way too much and Omid wasn't developed at all. It was a great episode, but whatever Telltale says I will always think of Carley/Doug's death as a cop-out. They could of had a choice, but nope. It was probably brought on because of everyone bitching about the release dates, Telltale now has a pretty linear storyline. Carley and Doug brought a great difference to each episode, now all we really have to impact episode 4 is small dialogue differences between the already established characters. Like,

    Kenny: "Oh thanks for doing that for Duck."
    Or Omid
    "Why'd you pick Christa first over me!?"

    It's nothing too dynamic in a game the choices are tailored by how we play. Carley and Doug had extremely good potential, now they're gone. Gone before anything really major could be established from either of them.

    Sorry for the lack of Doug, I've only played up till the end of episode two with him.

    yep like you said, and as i was discussing in another thread the choices make only minor differences which is something that will change dramatically in 4 nd 5 since there are only two episodes left. the decision as to who to save, carly or doug seemed to be the only choice that carried significant weight into other episodes

    Yeah honestly from the trailer I was really hoping we'd get to choose between Omid and Crista and then have two different determinant characters, sorta like our own survival group made. Nope, we don't get that all. Could've be great too, maybe have love triangle between Crista, Lee and Carley? Who knows, wasted potential.

    i actually saw a love triangle with lee lilly nd carly... i thought lilly offed her and intentionally accused her than when she shot her and saw how angry lee was she knew lee loved carly, not her. the "will you come with me" was just a last ditch effort in which 99% said no... is that safe to say haha?
