It was them that announced it would be a monthly release, they should have had all of this worked out ahead of time. If I'd known they were going to pull this crap beforehand, I would have waited until they were all released and bought the whole lot at once.

I know its frustrating but it'll be worth it

I agree, its turned from a nice idea of monthly episodic updates, giving me something to look forward to.
To something that I'm getting frustrated waiting for and will have forgotten some of the details of the 1st one by the time it's released.

This is the first and last time I do the 'episode' thing. For now on, no matter how good the game looks, I won't pay a single point until the whole thing is out.

Also, nice Zombie avatar.

It'll be done when its done people. Maybe Telltale where ambitious with their release schedule, maybe its money issues we dont know, so it'll be out soon enough

It's been so long since the original episode I honestly don't know if I'll even bother picking up the second episode on release. Like others have said, probably wait until all of them are released, get them then and start from scratch. I've already forgotten most of what happened and the decisions I made.

They should have figured this all out months ago; are we going to have to wait 2 months between every episode?!?

I don't remember them saying monthly anywhere? I might be forgetful though.

TellTale said it and it was in the x360a news aswell.... Below is their quote!!

Telltale has a strong history of releasing episodic games but more importantly, we wanted this game to offer an experience analogous to the comic books and TV show, which are also episodic in nature. We have plans for 5 episodes, releasing once per month."

So much for that though. I may just wait like some of the others are doing for all of them to come out then get them all. I hope each new episode has a recap of the previous ones.

To be fair, it doesn't say consecutive months.

I'm done with paying for episode games too until they actually friggin finish a story, or stick to a schedule. Especially after getting burned by the Penny Arcade games.

Approximately once a month, would assume that means they would aim for once a month but it's not set in stone.

I think that "once per month" is a very deliberate use of language and DOOKH8R is right, it isn't necessarily consecutive months. A far more usual turn of phrase for "on a consecutive monthly basis" would be something like "each month", or "every month".

To me it seems deliberately vague, to allow for the possibility of releases being a month apart as well being delayed, but "once per month" is definitely "not more than once in a given month" rather than "each consecutive month".

Still no word around the web about an actual date episode 2 is out?

That's what I like to see- critical thinking.

Looks like my est. In the 1st post was spot on

Been reported in today's x360a news that it'll be out at the end of June for sure now although no def release date has been announced

Those screenshots look fantastic. They've probably been "cleaned up" though.... The lighting looks a ton better than what I remember.

I hope this comes out by the 26th or 27th.
