Finally just got around to playing through season 2, and after the downer ending, this was just what I needed, so thanks:

Finished episode 1. This game is already surgically removing pieces of my soul.

I was wondering if anyone around here was actually playing this. I'm waiting for the full season to finish before I take the plunge, but I was really surprised not to see any discussion here at all.

ETA: Er, wait, are you talking about season 3 or season 1?

My friend who loved the first two seasons to death didn't even know the third came out until I asked him if he was playing it.

I loved S1 and thought S2 was overall good despite the parts that... weren't, but S3 wasn't something I wanted at all, so I'm out.

I did (against my better judgment) watch a video that collects all of the scenes that explain what happened between S2 and S3 to some of the characters (I'm being vague here for Issun's sake) and that did effectively let me know that I made the right decision. This bit will have spoilers for the entire series by the way so don't look if you don't want to know stuff like how

None of them were particularly good, but I feel really sorry for the people who decided to stick with Kenny, because his sequence was basically "Oh you like Kenny? That's real cute. Shame if something HAPPENED TO HIM RIGHT NOWWWWWWWW" At least Jane's sequence had payoff for the "Luke and Jane inexplicably decide to fuck instead watching out for hungry zombies" and the "what happens to these new losers who show up at the hardware store" events, and was consistent with her character as established.

The Clementine Alone endings were of slightly higher quality (probably because they didn't need to devote time to killing already dead characters) but still relied heavily on TWD's more-beloved-each-day "Character inexplicably does something uncharacteristically stupid to create a plot event" trope. Which makes me think that Robert Kirkman has finally turned his attention to what that little indie studio in California is doing with his chew toy.

So I just got to the dairy farm in Ep 2 and I'm already suspicious of these fuckers. The game is working its magic as intended, I assume.

Going out to fight bandits in the woods and I just realized I forgot about Clementine's hat. I am an asshole.

Also I think Larry was probably a more compelling character before the Age of Trump colored him.

I don't even remember who Larry is.

Edit: Ohhhh, fuck that guy. He sucked from the get-go.
