Good overall, not a fan of the end of the story. Solid game play. Kind of left a bad taste in my mouth when all said and done, but I like happy endings for my hero's and support leads.

Well see if they do number 2 and who returns I guess. Will I buy? Probably not, maybe, well see.

  • There are no "happy endings" in The Walking Dead...

  • You're playing the wrong game if you want a happy ending.

  • maybe a happy ending when the series is over, which i hope doesn't end anytime soon.

  • Haha, you're not familiar with The Walking Dead are you? In the whole scheme of things, this was a happy ending. Clementine's alive, ain't she?

    The TV Show isn't nearly as emotional as the video game. Never read the comics though.

    Well, in comparison to the comics, the TV show and game are a lot more tamed (emphasis on the TV show). To give you the idea of what the comics does, they recently took one of the most beloved character in the series and gave him the most brutal, gruesome death imaginable.

    Similarly, I'm assuming 'cause you watch the TV series that you're aware of the prison? Well, in the comics, when Rick and the group leave the prison there's quite a... bloodbath, to say the least.

    Too put it simply: to have a completely happy ending in The Walking Dead would be doing the series wrong. Even as the ending is, it's quite cheerful.

    Glenn ? I heard his death was pretty brutal.

    And has the comic ever actaully ended before?

  • @CarScar said: There was a reason why I talked around it, I didn't want to spoil it. I'd edit that and put spoil tags around it. Although the section says SPOILERS it's referring to the game, not the comics. ;) And yeah, it was really brutal.

    No, but neither has the game I guess. I'm referring to the ending of all the arcs, they were never really... happy. I seriously, seriously doubt that it will have a happy ending either. I can see Andrea's death coming very soon (she's actually like the best character in the comics, in stark contrast to the TV series Andrea who is... a complete idiotic bitch) and the creator, Robert Kirkman, said that he wanted to kill Rick at some point in the future.



    Kirkman is fricken sadistic.
