The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series (Season 3) A New Frontier - Trailer

29 posts in this topic



I played Season 1 (which I got for free from Games With Gold) up until I got to the final confrontation. I was going to replay it for the umpteenth time. But constantly having to justify my wrong actions seemed pointless in the grand scheme of the game. I guess replaying would've been fun if it wasn't for time limits.

This barely makes me want to play Season 2.

These telltale games seem to always drop in price so quick that I'll never buy them for their full price or even play it piecemeal. Its too easy to just watch a playthrough of it on youtube. Aside from actually making the decisions its easy to get the full experience of the game without actually playing it.

I didn't realize this at first but in the third season we don't play as Clementine.. its a guy named Javier. Interesting.

Quote

When family is all you have left... how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.

I beat season 1 about a year ago. I picked up 400 days, Season 2, and this game today on the steam summer sale. I just got done with 400 days and I'm glad I got it for $1.25 or whatever. Seemed like a waste of time at the end. The mini stories were cool, but you really had no control over the end... or whatever choices you made doesn't really feel like it connected to how it ended. I always find it interesting how I stacked up at the end vs. other players. I was in the minority on a lot of choices on season 1, but was in the majority on everything except one choice on 400 days. I'll probably start season 2 soon.

I think I beat 400 days.. or I only did 2 or 3 of the stories. It wasn't that memorable. Season 2 wasn't as good as season 1 to me in terms of character development. I don't think anything could top Lee and Clementine's original story. Overall tho, season 2 was a solid game and will give you alot of 'oh shit' moments. :D

WTF, Why can't you skip the credits? Apparently this is a thing on the PC version, you just have to alt-f4 the game and reload it to go faster between eps. Otherwise you have to sit through a 10-15 min roll of credits every time. Save that shit for the end.. You cant ESC, you cant scroll or hold enter to speed it up... none of that courtesy is given to you.

I'm pretty certain it was like that on the PS4 version too. I remember getting up to go use the bathroom or get a cup of coffee or something and let the credits roll. If it was skip able, I must not have noticed. XD

btw, did you also buy The Walking Dead: Michonne? Its a short telltale game, but for $3.75 its a decent game. It confused me as all hell tho initially because it actually takes place at some point in the comic's timeline and not the show's timeline.

I skipped on it because of your review while back. :P I'm glad I played 400 days since some of these characters have popped up in season 2.

I didn't notice any of those characters. I completely forgot them. XD yeah the michonne game was too small. It was decent for the $5 I got it for but it can be easily watched on YouTube.

Forgive me for I am not a fan of TWD and I haven't played it before. I don't see the graphic design of this zombie theme game as attractive as the Resident Evil or any other similar games that's why I don't play it.

Have you played any games made by Telltale? Their style is basically in the title. It's not really like Resident Evil or any action/horror game. Its more like a point and click, choose your own adventure. You really do play it for the story rather than the gameplay which is very limited. You choose dialog choices, and occasionally interact with items. The most intensive thing they require of you is mashing a button rapidly sometimes if you are in a tense situation. But overall its a pretty relaxing experience. You don't really have to be a fan of the show to enjoy the story of the game as its totally separate. They're more interactive stories than they are games. If TWD doesn't interest you they do have a Borderlands and Batman game as well. They have others but those 3 are their most notable.

I always thought of the telltale games as a modern take on old school SIERRA adventure games from back in the 80s and early 90s. Those were always fun for me, but cartoony. I definitely prefer the Resident Evil games for a true zombie fix tho. I prefer Resident Evil over most other zombie games because so many of the others are always endless horde modes. CoD zombies has no end.. just kill zombies until you die. I think thats how Killing Floor is too. Dying light and Dead Island both look decent. I own Dead Island, I should probably try it out.

Those old point and click adventure games were amazing when I was a kid. It was like playing an interactive novel. Sure the games look a bit crude today, but back when CDs were new, having a fully voiced game was pretty huge. This game came out the same year as the Super Nintendo. While I enjoyed jumping on goombas with Mario, a game like King's Quest 5 was literally telling me a story.

I still have that new one on my PS4 when it was free. I played the first few minutes of it and something on GW2 probably came out and I forgot about it.

I ended up getting the full game in a humble bundle probably a year ago. I still haven't played it but I definitely will. Another old Sierra game, Gabriel Knight, was remade in HD a couple years ago by the original developer in her own indie company. That game was so enjoyable. It was about Voodoo cult murders in New Orleans.

Heres an original playthrough of it:

It was a much larger game than King's Quest 5. Gabriel Knight took me about a solid week of afternoons for me to play through when I was a kid.

I haven't tried to play it before but it seems like this games are indeed interesting. I guess I should give it a try to see if I will enjoy it. Thanks for enlightening me about this stuff. :tup:

I finished season 2 and it was pretty depressing. It was good to see an old face, but man they really made it hard by doing that. I stuck with him until the end and chose to listen to him. I'm surprised how it was 50/50 on the final fight for most people... especially with the Lee flashback right before it.

Spoiler

I couldn't kill Kenny.. I mean c'mon, yeah he was losing it at some point but in the end he never lost his sanity which made me feel good about not killing him. Fuck that Arvo kid... I wish I could have shot him. I have a bad habit in these games where if anyone pisses me off I want them to die. XD I let Sarah get eaten because she was nothing but a burden after Carlos died. I honestly didn't like any of the new characters too. Luke was ok... I did like Pete but he died so soon. After everything I went through I couldn't turn my back on Kenny.

I chose to stay at wellington with AJ because it was what Kenny wanted, and I figured there really was no choice, but when I looked I could have gone with Kenny so I wish I would have picked that. The bad part is I don't feel like playing 2 hours worth of episode to change this. I don't like how season 2 episodes were super long compared to the more broken down eps of season 1. Each ep took me +2 hours to complete, and it was just a bit too long.

I killed Kenny. XD He went too psycho for me and I felt like I had to put him down. XD I had no idea there was a Kenny ending. O_O

Kenny went off the deep end. He had to be stopped. He made enemies out of everyone whenever he could. XD

Because they were all assholes that got us into that situation in the first place. XD

All of them tossed Clem in that hut to die of infection... I mean how could you not tell that was a dog bite? Any infection can cause a fever as well... and they were waiting to see if you got a fever! I never liked Carlos and his stupid weird daughter because of that. I didn't care about any of them from that point and sided with Kenny every time in every dialog situation. XD

Rebecca was a bitch at first, but I didn't mind her near the end and she died. I let Kenny keep shooting and it caused Alvin to die.

Nick was off the hinges before Kenny was and caused all the trouble to begin with by killing Matthew indiscriminately. I threw his ass under the bus in no problem. He caused Pete to die. If he wouldn't have left us, we could have cut off his foot and got him back to the house. 

Luke abandoned us when Carver caught everyone, screw him too. Then he was banging Jane when everyone was in trouble. XD Mike seemed like a pointless character, he just showed up at the Carver camp, and all he did was defend Arvo the whole time and tried to steal the truck Kenny fixed... with Bonnie who was a junkie whore from 400 days, AND turned us in to Carver when we gave her food.

I took Arvo's pills but I doubt giving them back would have made a difference, you still would have gotten caught by the Russians... I wish Kenny would have killed him. XD 

Jane was always questionable and was ready to abandon everyone, and even left her own sister to die. The fact that she provoked Kenny by putting AJ in the car validated my belief she deserved to die for starting shit that didn't need to be started.

It was everyone else's fault I tell ya! XDXDXD

When you put it like that I can see your point. XD I should replay this and stick with Kenny the entire time to see how different it'll all feel. Maybe by getting the Kenny ending he'll show up in the next game. Until then I still don't regret my actions. XD

I remember choosing "Why did you make me do this?" He had to be put down. XD

Jeez that even more depressing. You can also let him kill Jane and kill shoot him after you find AJ in the car. XD

I played ep 1 of A New Frontier and you can definitely tell they made it a lot more console friendly. Which in turn makes it easier on PC as well. Bashing/stabbing walker heads is now just an action button press. Its Q and E on PC so I'll assume it was Square and X on PS4 where you mashed one and pressed the other when you filled the meter... but for melee prompts they swap it up between the two, and sometimes the left/right/up/down will be melee... but when that happens its during intense scenes as if you would have dodged anyways. So they don't mix it up too much. I even had a shooting sequence that was in classic form but much easier.... basically the super wobbly head motion paired with the shaky cursor is gone... that was pretty annoying even with a mouse.

The game looks a lot sharper than the first. The dialog was much improved when searching too.. it feels a bit more natural when you interact with items that you can't use. I mean that wasn't really a knock on the first game, and it didn't really need an improvement. But its interesting how they made it feel more realistic rather than a normal sigh or headshake and a "busted" or "we wont be able to use that" line.

The choices you made in season two seem to affect flashbacks rather than this story. You can use your save data Mass Effect style, Start fresh, or even use your save data and change choices you made. I assume you can pick and choose, but I went ahead and stuck with my decisions... I don't like to take back, even if I regret my choices... that's what I love about continuity games.

      I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before. Does anyone know if this is a good price for all these games considering I'd have to use Uplay (my pc can play them fine)? Or would I be better off picking these up on console during a PSN sale?

      I am so hyped right now.

      I've been playing Prince of Persia since way back in the Broderbund days. And just as those classic games broke the barriers of cutting edge gaming back then, the new Prince of Persia does the same. Throwing aside the old side scrolling action and breaking new ground with such entirely unique gameplay, the Prince of Persia series is redifined with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
      The game is played in 3rd person perspective with camera controls so excellent, you will never miss out on any of the action. If you were to watch someone playing this, you would think the controls would be intimidating. But in fact, the controls are simple to learn thanks to the basic tutorial that assists you through the beginning scenes.
      The plot is great because of its simplicity.
      To quote a description from the publisher:
      Basically, everyone is turned into a sand demon, but as you play, you soon realize there are 2 others not affected by the Sands.. a young woman of the Maharajah kingdom named Farah and the evil Vizier. They both possess objects that protect them from the affects of the Sand, such as the Dagger has kept the Prince safe.
      After the Sands of Time are released, you quickly discover that the only way to destroy the sand demons is to absorb their sand into the Dagger of Time. The Dagger also has other abilities, such as if you were to die abruptly by a missed jump, the Dagger can rewind time at your discretion so you can make another attempt.
      The Dagger can do this as long as it has sand reserves. To refill the Dagger, simply kill another sand demon and absorb its sand. As you progress through the game, the Dagger will become stronger with every kill enabling you to do other feats than just rewinding time.
      The game is tied together with action and puzzle solving. For example: Kill all the enemies in the room, then get from point A to point B to progress to the next area. And this is were the Prince's abilities really shine. By doing combinations of wall running, jumping, swinging, climbing, pulling switches, hitting levers and wall jumping.. this game is sure to keep you entertained.
      With no major stage boundaries or level completion notices, Prince of Persia is a constant, fluid, adrenaline rush adventure.
      Graphics: 10 Sound: 10 Control: 10 Camera: 8 Plot: 9 Gameplay: 10 Overall: 10 Platform: PlayStation 2 Genre: Action Adventure Publisher: UBI SOFT Developer: UBI SOFT Released: 11/06/2003

      "Come, join us guardian. In a lifeless world where the only things that exist are you and the enemies that spawn. Ignore these wolves. You'll only see them in a cut scene anyway. Here, have a free gjallarhorn and don't notice any more flaws."

      No Bungie. No thanks. I already have that weapon and its pointless because its does so little damage to almost every enemy. I'm not paying you money for an upgraded version of the exact same weapon I bought on the last day I played your game. Good luck in the future. Maybe Destiny 2 will be good but I'm not a raid guy and I realized that you're all about raids and no significant in game plot. I'll pass. This is one of those games that if I want to know the story about, I'll watch it on youtube so I can skip 200 hours of gear grinding to watch a total of 2 hours of cutscenes and dialogue.

      The gameplay looks very similar to the first game, but some of the new stuff is pretty cool. I love the idea of controlling drones in this, but the best part of Watch Dogs to me was the plot. I'm a bit disappointed this isn't an actual sequel. I loved the car driving in the first game. I'd jump in a car and just drive everywhere for the hell of it. Sure some of those car evasions were a pain in the ass. I remember driving for over 10 minutes like a maniac trying to loose some guys before. Good times.
