  • @MakersWax said: This is one game where I'm more pleased not to run across Easter eggs or pop culture references. It just isn't the right atmosphere for it and would detract significantly from the world they're trying to create.

    Except for Batman references?

  • @BlankCanvasDJ said: Five sounds epic, though I'm not sure if I really want to try it. I'm not sure how two is an easter egg.

    Also...BANANG!

    Yeah 4 wouldn't really be an Easter Egg, I just found it to be an interesting choice. I debated about putting it in my list. Now the Robin thing was just a small one, since it is referencing outside of the Walking Dead universe I would consider it to be. Kind of like WoW doing that Mr.T event, I would consider that an Easter Egg IMO

    Excepting nothing, that whole "detective" sequence felt weird and contrived, but I never play point and clicks.

  • @Red Panda said: Not really, but one interesting thing is you can leave Duck in the woods instead of you or Kenny shooting him.

    I'm gonna have to try that.

    There's already a thread talking about easter eggs and references:

  • Alright here are the Easter Eggs I've found so far, some may or may not be Easter Eggs or not but hey.

    1. At the beginning of the episode, there is a crashed helicopter in the drug store with a pilot in it. The pilot looks a lot like the pilot in Telltales Jurassic Park episodic game, who has a very untimely death.

    2. When Lee is investigating for who was taking supplies, Duck is going to be Lees 'Ward' referring Lee to Batman and himself as Robin.

    3. A funny one was when Duck finds the chalk lines near the motor inns gates and asks Lee for a hi-5. If Lee gives him one the update will say "Duck thinks you are totally awesome."

    4. After Lilly kills someone, if you take the option to take her with you on the RV you will reach the train, once you have the option to get back into the RV to get the pencil, Lilly will have broken out of her binds and steal the RV. She will offer you to go with her if you have sided with her in the past. One of the options is "Okay." Lilly tells you to go out and get Clem, and when you do she drives off.

    5. The last one I found was the best. When you go up to Kenny in the control car to tell him to stop the train, when you get to the following dialogue:

    Stop. The. Train.
    You're in denial!
    This isn't about Duck.
    ...

    Choose the ... option. Kenny will speed up the train, the same option will appear again, choose ... again. He will push you out of the car and lock the door. Lee will walk back to the box to find it covered in blood and bits of flesh.. and Clems hat on the ground. Than Duck will walk towards you as a walker. In shock Lees mouth is gaped open, Duck comes to him and Lee falls out of the Box car. The "You are dead" screen pops up.

  • Did anyone else think the zombie pilot in the pharmacy was a reference to Pearl Jam's "Do the Evolution?"

    I saw the part that you were talking about (2:50) I think you may be right! I just wish we could of seen the back of the helmet for the star

    Yeah, but it's not really...I dunno...I mean, it's one thing for WoW to put in something like that and have it be an in-joke, because WoW is a fantasy world. But The Walking Dead takes place in the real world, where Batman & Robin is actually a thing. It's just like you and I talking about Batman & Robin. It's not an in-joke, we're just talking about it.

    I can agree with that :) I actually just kind of made a point like this on another thread. But none the less its still interesting.
