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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

Same here, the aim thing disappeared and I had to rewind during the train part, but other than that, so far so good.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is easily one of the worst games I've ever played (not trolling)

How this game got such praise I'll never understand. As a fan of Walking Dead and the Myst series, I came into this expecting to like it. I came away miserable. I'm on episode 5 now and I'm going to push through it to get the completion and to maybe find some redemption, but my heart sinks just thinking about it.

Issues:

1. Story - This story is awful. The characters are extremely flat and one-dimensional. You know exactly what they're going to do at any given time. If someone is bad, you know it. I have yet to find a single game-changing surprise (obviously you can't know exactly what's going to happen). Beyond the characters, there's barely any direction and the pacing is horrible as it takes forever to get anything done.

2. Gameplay - Remember in episode 4 when you had the compelling experience of taking a car battery out of the car? Or episode 2 when you managed to unscrew four screws? Truly worthy of praise. Lee moves slowly toward anything no matter the situation. You're often left with no direction at all on what to do (normal for an adventure game) but the solution is never clever and so it's not rewarding to solve the puzzle. I mean seriously...Just terrible.

3. Decisions - People complain about Mass Effect. This is basically the exact same thing. Nothing really seems to matter.

This is what I was going to say.

The game didn't blow my mind or anything, but I certainly enjoyed what I've played so far (the first two episodes). I try never to expect anything from a game because it's almost always disappointing when I do.

Then again, maybe my opinion will change once I get around to finishing the episodes.

Yes! I love Telltale games and love Walking Dead. I saw my brother playing this and was disappointed. Lost almost all interest. I may play it anyway just to get the completion and the story, but I think this is a lost opportunity.

Both brothers who played this told me they'd rate it lower than 6/10 and would not play it again. Also, they said the same thing: Decisions do not matter in the end.

The end is great and the journey getting there is even better! Who cares if they all end the same, everyones story is slightly different.
