Do you think Season 2 should have more going on?

If so, PG-13 or R-rated? should they go for a sex scene 'ala Heavy Rain?

or given it's the zombie apocalypse, does this seem unlikely/impossible?

  • I saw a thread a few months back where someone talked about a possibility of a scene where Lee and Carley are alone in a tent together at night and then leading to the two of them making love.

  • @Platinumb said: this is what all the Clem/Ben fans are hoping for:

    Clem: Let's do it now, Ben.
    Ben: Clem, I, I... I've never kissed anybody.

    Well, there was that one time in the gym with Mr. Parker, but he told me not to tell anybody about -

    Clem: Ben, I said nothing about kissing. I'm settling for you out of pure desperation. Rabid, horny animals do this. And you're the only option.

    Ben: Without even kissing?

    Rick Grimes, off in the distance: NO MORE KID STUFF.

    The Ben/Clem stuff is starting to get out of hand xD

    Yes it can add alot to the story provided it is done right

    I know right..I just taught Clem had a small little ''crush'' on him or they were just friends but this is just some weird poop out here..
    Internet is weird..

  • @Platinumb said: should they go for a sex scene 'ala Heavy Rain?

    Yes, new main charecter with Lilly or Molly :D

  • @Platinumb said: stupid humor -_-

    I was serious

  • Yes, definitely. I was missing that entirely in Season 1. One or two romances would be beneficial to the story, as it contributes to further human authenticity.
    I think the sex scenes in Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain were fitting, well done and enhanced the story and the expressed connection between the characters.

  • I wonder if Telltale planned the Carley romance from the beginning or added it into episode 3 because of super positive fan reaction and requests for a LeeXCarley relationship.

  • @BlackBoxx said: Besides... I would probably fail that QTE pretty spectacularly.

    Hey, failing it can just be another determinant. “So and So will remember you’re a terrible lover.” :D

    All joking aside, I rather not see whatever the player character of the next season being entangled in any particularly complex romance scenarios. Some light implications are fine but usually anything more in video games tends to be along the lines of cheap pulp fiction romance. Harmless bet forgettable.

    That said, I do agree with people saying love and romance and sex are all part of the human experience, but I think it could be better represented in story with characters you don’t control. Like you have a pair of young people in your group who fall in love over the course of the story and then something horrible can happen to one of them, something like that.

    I think that could create some interesting story situations. Like where maybe there’s a couple in your group and at one point you’re given one of those sadistic choices where you have to choose to save only one. They sorta had a version of that in Season 1 with Carley and Doug except it was in a preemptive fashion. They like each other but one of them must die so nothing ever becomes of it.

    Imagine if they both made it, got to know each other, hooked up and THEN you had to choose to save only one. Or Lilly shoots one right in front of the other and we’d see how the fallout changes them. Lot of rich ground there to emotionally torment the audience with the romance angle.
