About Clementine...

Does anyone know for sure that Clementine will at least BE in Season II?
Because this to me is the only way that Walking Dead Season I can be redeemed.
Because I did love this game, but I just hate the ending too much to want to ever beat it again.
However, if Clementine is AT LEAST in Season II, then I can feel a LOT better about the original.
I mean, it was bad enough that:
First, when you are bitten, it shows the retical as if you can do something about it-- which you absolutely cannot.
Then, they give you the option to have your arm cut off, misleading you to believe that there is some way to save yourself.
So by the end of the game, I had been hoping so much that Lee would make it-- actually sort of expecting it. But once we were trapped together after I passed out, I could see that there was just no way Lee would live, and I tried my very best to come to grips with that before the end. I figured, 'Well... at least Clementine will live.'
I didn't expect all that much.
I didn't need any corny YIPPY ending like with Heavy Rain (Though I won't pretend that I didn't like Heavy Rain's Ending, minus that random bit where Jayden is Schizophranic, because at least Shawn is fine).
All I had wanted-- AT LEAST-- was to maybe just, after the credits, see Clem walking away with Omid and Christa.
I didn't even need them to be smiling about it. Just to have the clairification at that point was all I really could hope for, and I felt that it was the very least that I deserved after all that Drama.
...
But NOPE!!!
Instead I get Clementine walking alone in a field crying (Which is understandable), and not only that, but when she is looking off in the distance... not only is it unclear if they are Omid and Christa, but they make Clementine look terrified.
BLACK SCREEN.
I was completely fed up at that point.
However, IF Clementine is at least for sure IN Season II, unless this is some 'Monkeys-Paw' Request, that would be all I need to be able to enjoy Season I again.
I mean, it only said '_____ will remember that' for the things referenced later in the game. I know. I changed alot of those decisions to test it, and it really did make a difference, whether it was an event or an entire conversation.
And at the end of the game, during your last words to Clem, it says 'Clementine will remember that', yet the ending isn't even moderately altered.
And if you had Omid and Christa cross the sign before you, what you say to them makes it say 'They will remember that', yet not a moment of the game is altered afterwards.
That leads me to believe that she WILL be in Season II, but is there anyone out there who actually KNOWS that Clem will be in Season II for sure?
I need to know...
And please, no "we'll have to find out"s, I can do THAT on my own.
Is there anyone that knows that she will? Or at least can explain why they are pretty sure that she will be?

  • I can't recall Telltale confirming her to be in season 2. But oh well... it is very likely, or the after-credit-scene wouldn't have made any sense... they could have stopped at the credits. Sorry, that is as much as I can tell... and I strongly doubt anyone, besides the Telltale staff, who won't do it, can give you the answer to that question, as you said yourself...

  • wow wow easy dude, relax. Don't worry, she will be in S2, Telltale said that thay have a lot of ideas about the story for the second season, but they have not considered the option of the game without Clementines.

    Well as many real opinions-- after reading mine-- as possible from anyone who has one.
    Thank you. :)

    We haven't confirmed anything about season 2 yet (besides that there IS one, and it's set for a fall release).

    Well I'm sure you're aware of the importance of this to many fans.

  • Imagine a whole season without that little girl who everybody fell in love with.. (not in a pedophilic way.) It could still be another great season, but they would have to really give it everything they've got.

  • I just found out that Season 2 started and that Clem IS in it. I immediately went out and purchased the game of the year edition and decided to restart the game, maybe to see if this understanding helps my perspective. I still loved the game, just like the first time. Still got sad during every death. At the end, I BAWLED when Lee had his last words with Clem. It was comforting to know who the two are, thanks to the brief description of the first episode of Season 2. I just still have this feeling of untrust, like dating someone whom cheated on you. This uneasiness that I am wasting my time. But I will just have to trust that the writers know how to make it a good and satisfying ending, instead of taking the easy route. Given to make us care about characters is difficult, but once you've done that, making a depressing ending is easy. What is truly difficult is making a good ending while still letting feel real. Like Last of Us. I just hope the writers will keep the grand finale from being as depressing. And also, I hope they have the curtisy this time to write 'To be continued...' at the end if it isn't the end. Anticipation is better in every way than grief and sudden surprise. It really is. You don't have to destroy the possibility of a sequal to end something. There is room for existance after the end of Last of Us, but it would really be best to leave it at that. People are giving up on Assassin's Creed, for example. So, I will just have to trust that it will all work out. Bad endings are getting old and unoriginal. Maybe over 10 years ago it would've been original. But I am seeing them everywhere. Alan Wake, Assassin's Creed 3, Repo Men, Buried, Mass Effect (so I hear), etc.. There are many more, but I'll leave it at that. It just gets old. I look forward Season 2. I really hope it's worth it in the end, and not a crap shoot. Even the host of Talking Dead hated the ending. But, that's aside. I hope I love the series without fooling myself by the end of the series. Thank you.

  • Don't get me wrong, a depressing and stressful series is amazing. But a depressing finale is just not worth it.

  • The ending can make or break a game, especially so for a series. The longer the series, the more it matters.

  • Looking forward to Season 2.
