So, I've done some reading on this forum and the Steam forums and it seems like a TON of people are having the same issues of randomized decisions being made for you by Episode 5.
I ended Episode 4 with everyone still in my party and some very distinct choices of words to the person on the other side of the walkie talkie...I started Episode 5 and I'm completely alone and don't say anything on the walkie which makes me look like a coward.
I am not playing this last episode until this is fixed. Like everyone else has been expressing...we've spent good time throughout this series to have it end not the way we progressed through the game. I think it would completely ruin the experience.
I've tried some of these fixes I've read that had to do with macs, but none of them are working. Does anyone else know of anything? Either fixes or news on a possible patch? If nothing comes soon, I will be contacting TellTale to get my money back because this is absolutely unacceptable.
