Bitching Thread
 
Don't get me wrong, I would love the game if it didnt have so many freaking glitches and bugs, but how did Game Informer and xbox magazine worship this game and make it onto every staffs top 10 list. Did they play a version I didn't see. I hit so many glitches, and now that it reset my episode 3, 3 times now because of glitches on the train. I just can't play it a forth time again, which means ill never play epiode 4 and 5. Any ideas if these mags get paid to hype broken games

I've not had any big glitches except the saves not showing up unless I reboot the game.

They are well justified in giving the scores, the storytelling and characters are superbly done.

MoldyClay87 12-23-2012 11:35 AM

Because the reviews are based on the story and gameplay. Not whether or not it is a buggy mess.

BluWolve 12-23-2012 12:39 PM

I never experienced one single gamebreaking glitch or bug, but I was probably just lucky. I will gladly pay more money when season 2 comes out.

This. Knock on wood.

I just finished Episode 3, and I never had a single problem leading up to it or during it. Never reset or anything. I played through Episode 3 fine.

So, for the first 3 chapters so far, I've had absolutely no problems on the disc version of this game.

Dead Island would like to have a word with you.

Didn't have a single glitch (retail disc). Some long loading times were the worst of it. Fantastic game.

Jamski 12-26-2012 11:25 PM

1 glitch here on the train. Just had to redo one tiny bit. Other than that it was perfect.

Funnypinoy87 12-27-2012 11:14 PM

Played through all episodes. XBLA version.

No glitches throughout.

Barad 12-28-2012 01:02 AM

Apart from the frequent freezing, I've not come across any bugs in Episode 1 so far, the characters/dialogue is solid..that's where the praise is.

GOT ME.

But actually, I meant the reviews on this game in particular. What games are reviewed on tend to be a game-by-game thing.

Some games are good enough in every other area to make it easy to overlook the problems.

That said, I've had no problems with this anyway, so I would assume neither did they.

Gageamatron 12-29-2012 08:52 AM

Not too sure actually. No idea why this is GOTY material. I agree the story was engaging and all but every episode had some sort of glitch happen that really took me out of the game. All the choices boil down to one ending, and the way they handled the choices getting tallied up and being sent to the server made my game extremely laggy on top of all the glitches. Decent gameplay, but overall in my opinion this game is HIGHLY overrated.

couch slouch 2 12-29-2012 06:40 PM

I just played this game straight through. Picked it up yesterday afternoon from the sale and finished it about 7 am. Aside from some stuttering sound and slow loading toward the end I had no glitch/bug issues. Other than a rather crappy controller layout for the shooting scenes I think this is an excellent game and would highly recommend it.

Hutchy27 12-29-2012 06:47 PM

Only problem I had is at the end of episode 3 when I went to continue to episode 4, I got reset to episode 1.

Skilled 12-30-2012 04:12 AM

Never had a problem with any glitches (PC) except for the fact that I lost my save.. Not going to spend hours and hours just to get back to chapter 4. I'll guess I'll just watch it. Shame really.

HugTheBear 12-30-2012 05:07 AM

I encountered lag at times in Episode 2 and 3. Other than those small issues, everything else in this game was beautiful.

This. 10 char

kynreeve 01-03-2013 10:12 PM

The only glitch I had was in episode 1 with the argument between Kenny and Larry, I sided with Kenny, the end stats say I sided with Larry and for the rest of the game they both said I didn't agree with them :(

Last Shaman 01-07-2013 08:05 AM

i just finished episode 3 and i haven't ran into a glitch yet

It's not really about the ending. It's about how you get there and the emotional drives and how it affects everything leading into the end.

That said, not everybody had these glitches. I certainly haven't yet (entering Ep.5).

This is how I feel when people talk about this game. It's story telling devices, choices and atmosphere make this one of the best games I have ever played. And I have over 2000 video games.

DarkReign2021 01-07-2013 04:20 PM

I only experienced a single glitch during my two playthroughs of the game. When Episode 5 launched and I downloaded it, I found my game saves were completely missing. I ended up resetting my 360, though, and they were both there the next time around.

InsaneKane87 01-09-2013 07:17 PM

People like OP make me wonder if people like that know what a glitch in a game really is, or they are just complaining and calling things glitches because something looks odd to them or they don't like the controls. I only played episode 1 (Free version) so far and the only thing I noticed was that when it would change from a cutscene it would pause for maybe half a second.

Nothing gamebreaking or terrible about that to ruin a game. Besides that one little thing that didn't even affect the wonderful experience I had with an emotional episode (just like the show) was truly fantastic.

Burnout x360a 01-09-2013 07:23 PM

I just finished the last two chapters of Ep 5 last night and man it is definitely the best 2000 Microsoft Points I've ever spent, hands down.

Sgt Scyther 01-09-2013 10:54 PM

The only glitch I ever had was one in Episode 3 when I left the train cart and Lee went through the ground and the camera got all crazy. But I just had to reload the game and it worked fine after that.

mercyforme 01-09-2013 11:52 PM

I had one bug, but it was relatively minor. I don't know what caused the corrupted file, but I can't even be sure it was the game's fault. I thought it was fantastic as far as I've played. Still need to wrap up the last act tomorrow.

MoldyClay87 01-10-2013 12:43 PM

Alright so, I've finally completed the disc version of the game.

Had absolutely no problem or glitch during any of the chapters, never had to start over or use my back-up save. Using an older 360, btw.

So either I was lucky or the people with glitches are just more vocal about this. Anyway, sucks for those who had glitches, but it's obviously not something that will undoubtedly happen, as I didn't experience anything aside from slowdown a few times.

aspeedomodel 01-10-2013 01:14 PM

I love, LOVE, point and click adventures. And Telltale games have been great at keeping them alive.

However, I've seen three brothers playing this game and while I will probably play it myself sometime, I think the point and click adventure aspect is almost completely gone. It's clunky looking and I feel they should've held onto the point and click feel that their Sam and Max and Back to the Future games had.

Hopefully, the story makes up for it, but I was hoping this would be more of a point and click adventure game.

I second this. I am on ep.4 and while the story is pretty good and characters believable, I can't agree with the constant praise. I really just see it as an adventure game that doesn't have silly objects to use. It makes sense, and I think that's what appeals to non-adventure game players.

The only weird thing that happened was some dialogue overlapping at the train area in episode three before Ken and Kat go to the woods.

Lord Dirt 01-14-2013 06:55 PM

Best $10 game I have ever played. Just with the actions in game actually made a difference in the end.
