Theori about the creapy guy on the walkie

posted by Keupajer on - last edited - Viewed by 132 users

People are asking, how they can make this next episode (4) even darker.

Well what little we know about the guy on the walkie is, that he have been able to con Clementine into believing, that he has her parents. Could he be telling the truth..? He is at least lying about Clementines farther, since we already head (on the anwseringmachine), that he was attackt and in the hospital. So it seams within reason to assume, that he is a walker or dead.

So is Clementines mother alive? Well it would not surprise me, if she was. However I do not believe, that the walkie guy has her.

So what could the walkie guys intentions be? Well he did trick Clementine, and she is kind of smart, but still a child. So I believe that this guy has some expierince in manipulating children. So given the fact, that this episode has to be darker than ep 3, I believe, that this man is kidnapping children for some sick purposes.

I do not know the TWD frainchies well enough to know, if this would be to cross the line for darkness and sick people, we meet in the TWD serie. It is kind of hard to tell, since kanibalism was just another day on the office.

So what do you think guys. Could this walkie guy be some disgusting child abuser, levieng in a pet store and keeping children in cages?

  • Honestly, it's not looking good. I'm afraid that my Lee is going to have quite a bit of difficulty -not- killing this guy. Unless he has a good explanation for taking advantage of a little girl like this.

  • Man, it'd be great if Lee spends a portion of the game tied up watching terrible things happen to Clem, then finally gets free. As Lee stands up you get the usual choice screen: kill the man, don't kill the man. Time stops.

    But your mouse won't move. You can't make the decision. Instead Lee moves forward and hammers the guy's face to nothing. After a continued sequence of blind fury, you can eventually stop Lee. As he realizes what he's done, Clem comes up and hugs him.

    "You did the right thing," she says.

  • While I'm sure TTG is trying their best to mirror the comics' way of things, I think rape might actually be one of the lines they refuse to cross... Especially if it's a child. Obviously, the shit happens in the comic, but a video game is a much different medium than a comic. Even if they didn't actually animate anything, they'd have to get the point across somehow, be it through sound or what have you.

    I'm pretty confident that the farthest this will go is the "threat" of it happening, and nothing more. The media backlash would be ridiculous otherwise...

  • I'm sure you're right. I don't mean to say that I think Telltale will depict the rape of a child. I do think we're going to get awfully close to a line. Maybe even step on it.

  • Carl in TWD comic book almost got r*ped. Jus' sayin', but I don't think Telltales is as ballsy as Kirkman.

  • That's what I was talking about. The comics toe the line and often cross it. But honestly, comics aren't as popular as video games. I'm not sure how many people who play the game read the comics, but it's probably not even half. TTG has to be a lot more careful, especially since there's always so much fire against video games. That doesn't necessarily mean they won't come close... But definitely not as close as the comics did.

  • If this guy is actualy some kind of child molester, you definatly won't get any details. Prehaps something like: This guy... He is bad. He did horrific things to the other kids.
    Somthing like that prehaps.

  • but we can 'shoot duck' so the line of not killing kids has been crossed..

    i would assume like the ep1 clem dies game over it was implied not shown so ttg can

    possible scenario :
    mr 'x' motivations are hinted at by dialogue with others, then somehow clem is locked in a room, lee fails to escape/save clem/stop mr 'x' which means lee is unable to move or dead and mr 'x' laughs and walks to the room where clem is and closes the door..

    que your dead sceen

  • Maybe the guy on the walkie is a red herring and the real threat to Clem is already in the group...

    Well, I suppose it's not a matter of if they can do it, but if they choose to make it a true possibility. For example, Clem can die several times, but she's not actually dead. It's game over and you start over. Same with your scenario. I truly doubt, however, that they'll -make- it happen in the story. It'll possibly be one of the many pitfalls Lee can fall in and thus end the game, but I don't think it'll be where the plot is meant to go.

    Then again, as you've stated, they've already crossed the line of killing children. Who can say?
