    In fairness, its more akin to a book (Edit. errrr sorry, Spectacularly written film) than a game, and I am not going to say a thing about the game because it will ruin it.
    But if you don't like this, you are dead inside.
    It goes to show how important story is.

    Ye I like sand boxy stuff where emergent stuff happens and more scripted narrative stuff as well. I just don't have the time to play all of what I want to.

    So do I.
    But the writing in this is utterly spectacular. In fairness, as a game, it has very low interactivity, and the puzzles would only give pause to (Oh christ, I'm going to get a ban for saying a special needs. And now for using "christ" sod it, I'm a fanboy) someone from Lincolnshire but the writing is certainly the best I have encountered in any game, and the panic created when interactivity is needed raises it above TV or film and creates a new genre for gaming.
    As I said earlier.

    As I mentioned on twitter, just finished, kind of shellshocked now. Not quite sure how to respond what happened.

    Did the end of episode choices bug out for anyone btw? I just got 5 instances of:
    Choice Title x
    Choice title x description

    I haven't played any of the game yet, but I am a huge fan of the show. I always stay up to watch the new episode, then I watch it again (they air it twice), then watch the talking dead.

    just play it... i cried like a baby with teh end. GOTY in my book. splendid character development, and situations. I hope telltale keeps this bar of greatness.

    also, i wonder what happens if you had less people go with you. what happens then? very dark and gruesome game.. but overall pretty fantastic.

    zoiks.
