I paid for this on Ps3. Im in europe and still waiting for episode 2. Telltale and Sony can take their game and machine and go jump. Ive had it with them doing everything sub-par. And Im not paying for this again on 360.

Fantastic game, too bad the horrible lag ended up taking me out of the experience. Telltale need to fix that, or I'm not getting the rest.

Wonder if there will be a lawsuit in future. Sony vs Microsoft. Because ms might have paid off telltale to delay on ps3.

Can't wait for ep3. Loved ep2. it was worth the wait. I would wait the same again for all the episodes. Great game.

Feel sorry for the anger ps3 buyers have. Maybe that's why Xbox didn't have a pass. Which is surprising this everything seems to be "passes" this year.

Very nice game! And good timing. Episode 2 came too late. Didn't know which character had which name anymore. Well...looking forward to surviving! :D

Can't wait but will believe it when I see it on the marketplace

Just hope the horrible lag/skipping gets sorted for this 3rd Ep. I enjoyed Ep2 but those problems did spoil it somewhat

I won't be getting ep2 until its fixed. Even IF ep3 releases in mid-August it's still far from a month in between 2-3; more like 6 weeks.

Still, I hope they're right.

Yes, the PS3 and PC got it 2 days later than the 360, but with the lag in the 360 version, I would have gladly waited 2 days for the PC version. Sometimes waiting has it's advantages, but since I've already got the first 2 episodes on the 360, I might as well stick with it and hope the next episodes don't lag like the 2nd one.

“Our goal from day one has been to deliver your game episodes as quickly as possible, and where we can, simultaneously across all platforms and regions.”

2 month gaps isn't exactly quick, I know it's only 400 points an episode but there is lots of DLC coming out and games so I don't want to end up not being able to afford like the last episode or something. Plus if they are every 2 months then we will most likely not get Episode 5 until December, I really cannot wait that long. Can anyone else?

wouldnt have the fastest way possible been to keep the game under wraps, announce it announce it next month, and release all 5 episodes at once in november when the game should be "finished"

idk about you guys, but i was completely dissatisfied with the amount of graphical "glitches" (lag) last episode... But the story-telling is so amazing, one of the best games ill probably ever play! hopefully they fix the lag issue next episode (doubt it).

i didnt really know anything about walking dead until recently so i picked up both episodes together, didnt realise people had waited so long for ep2. in any case its the 1st point and click game ive played in full, the narrative is superb the tension sometimes unbearable, the game really oozes atmosphere and i was blown away by the depth of the charcters and conversation on offer, the fact that its so cheap for so much enjoyment really makes it a game to savour, other companies could learn valuable lessons from this.
i do agree that all 5 eps should have been made 1st then released 1 per month to keep the interest and juices flowing, waiting until dec or longer for ep5 is a bit stupid.

Soooo, it's practically the "end of August" now and still no Episode 3.

I sure hope it's coming out on Tuesday the 28th.
