Episode 3 ruined everything

The first time I'm not looking forward to new release at all. If it comes out, I'll play, if not, I'm not bothered. Well done TTG! episode 3 ruined everthing and also appeared everything about that fake choice making.

    This it's the walking dead argument is nonsense when the game was marketed and tells you constantly the story matters for your choices.

    "A tailored game experience – Live with the profound and lasting consequences of the decisions that you make in each episode. Your actions and choices will affect how your story plays out across the entire series."

    The game even tells you this each episode. So it would have been nice to have doug/ carly survive for a bit longer at least just felt like a backfire to kill them the next episode i didn't want them to be gods but the shock factor of anyone dying but Clem will be reduced for episode 4. And lets be honest the gameplay elements weren't really that hard or id be stumped as i suck at point and click games.

    That said the choices did matter to me personally and is reading the reasons why you save x or y , or whether you shot the girl outside the store but i recognize this doesn't make a huge difference to the story / actions. Like my "plan" of searching from clem's parents was thrown out the window in the episode 4 trailer.

    It probably doesn't help that im not a fan of the comics and only watched the show so i didn't know who lily was and i tried to make her like me which was pointless if she's going off to do other things in season 3 of the TV show i assume.

  • it not about the story changing it's how and who lee is during it..

    and how 'our' actions affect clem...

  • If the game upset you, and made you feel like your choices don't matter, and left you feeling discouraged and hopeless, then the game designers succeeded. That is the world of TWD. It is not a feel-good world. It is supposed to piss you off.

    If you are playing this game with the idea that you want to "win", or to try to save the people you like, then you will be very disappointed.

    Well of course not but thats the thing its not really a game at all but an interactive movie. it wouldn't even bother me if the big deal at the beginning of every episode saying stuff will be affected by me. For example i would like my actions through the episode to make one of duckie, kenny, doug/ carly and katja, or ben live not just have it be kenny its stuff like that that takes me out of the game. An immersive watching experience but i could be a dick to everyone and i won't matter.

    i hope im wrong and there will be nods to how especially doug/ carly and duckies death affected lee and clem in the following episodes.

    I've watched a few playthroughs on youtube and it's annoying and slightly depressing when reading some of the comments.

    "You're making all the crap choices!!!", "F****** REWIND!, you're screwing your chances to get a good ending" and "WOW you're stupid, you need to keep everyone happy so they all like you!".

    I don't think some people really get the uniqueness and beauty of this game :(

    Youtube comments are always depressing. After i played the episodes i watched maximums black's play and enjoyed seeing his reactions and choices (same or different) to mine. and that he seemed as immersed as i was. hemade me smile when he 1st met lily's dad and said "ooh ima leave you for the zombies the 1st chance i get " and yet trys to save him later exactly how i felt and reacted through the game.

    I have seen some of his playthrough and enjoyed it because you can see he is genuinely immersed in the story and is enjoying the game. It also made me laugh when you see the shock on his face when something big happens :D

    If the internet is a barrel demarked by levels of quality, Youtube is buried several yards below the bottom.

  • YouTube comment section is hive of scum and villany.
    A troll breeding ground

  • Please sir, QQ MORE. It's how the fucking twd works.
    DEAL WITH IT, DEATHS HAPPEN..

    P.S For the dumb ones, Carley/doug Isn't coming back.
