Might get the second season of Walking Dead after this. Anyone try that yet? I've been hesitant to try it because it looks like you play as Clementine this time around, and that doesn't sound fun to me at all.
Wolf Among Us is great, as is TWD. As for playing as Clem, I like it just as much as I liked playing as Lee. Actually, I might like it even more just because now there's a history with the character/world, the season in general I like better than the first season, it's just more well done/better crafted.

TWD is amazing again. Clem inches towards being more and more badass every episode. It's not quite as good as the first one, but it's pretty damn awesome. I'm a guy with a beard, drinks cans and watches UFC, but you can be damn sure I feel that lump in my throat whenever someone mentions Lee haha.

I just don't like the idea of being a 10 yr old girl making life or death decisions. I should probably lighten up since it's just a game but it really breaks the immersion for me. Looks like you guys recommend it though so I might give it a try. Do your decisions from the first season matter at all? Got the first season on PS3 but had to restart my system to factory settings. I'll replay it if it's worth it for the second season.

And I was right. Blew through the first episode of Wolf Among Us in one night. Fantastic start. Now for episode two!

Ehh, not 100% sure on how the first season effects the second season now that I think of it. I believe out of perhaps one or two slight conversations, and maybe a clip show of a lot of the events, it's nothing major.

The life and death situations work for her though now. Basically, the entire thing is that Lee has taught her how to survive. She is always learning, but you'll be surprised at how important a character she is. She's tougher than 90% of the other characters and is more helpful in almost every situation. It reminds me a little bit of the show. You had the two girls and their dad in the house, and they really had no clue how to survive as they were capable of being held up. Then you've got the main team who were like a SWAT team, experts at dealing with everything. Different roles, and Clem's been through it all.



^You've also got that badassery ahead of you.

She is 3 years older than she was in the first episode, no spoilers but yeah time has passed, so she is a lot more mature and "adult" than she was in the first season. She is still a kid, but after all the stuff she has been through she's a hardened/mature kid who was trained by Lee all through the first season on how to survive/take care of herself. It's not nearly as bad as you think it is, don't worry.

Plus, the fact that she is still a kid makes her more vulnerable than an adult, so in sticky situations it's more stressful/more important to make the right moves. Personally I like season 2 better than 1.

Also yeah, Wolf Among Us is great, the only issue I have with it is I don't think there will be a season 2. There could be, I hope there is, I just don't think there will be with so many more Telltale series coming up (Game of Thrones/Borderlands) plus TWD still going. I think this was a one and done season.

I'm happy someone prefers TWD Season 2 to 1. I've never really spoke with anyone about it, but I would really prefer Season 1 as it felt a little bit more like a "journey". It's good to know that I could be the only one in that because I absolutely love the series and wouldn't want people to be acting like it's going downhill.

Season 2 defo tugs at the heartstrings a bit more too. Not a single person sat with Luke (no spoilers lol).

It'll be interesting to see what happens with TWAU. I don't know too much about it's popularity. I'm really not too bothered with Borderlands because I've never played the game before. It's not something I'll be TOO interested in. While Wolf Among Us has fairly broad spectrum of what could be journeyed into. There are a host of characters to interact with and even play as. The ending left the opening for a sequel, as well as the town's 'reaction' being displayed at the end (wording everything to make sure I spoil nothing). I hope they do make a sequel but I never considered it until you mentioned it there.

Played the Destiny Beta. I thought it was good, but nothing special. It felt like a mix of Halo and Borderlands (but mostly Halo). I played part of it solo, part of it co-op with a friend, got a decent taste of it. The two main issues I have would be fixed if it was on PC:

#1, the FPS is really bad. It's supposed to be 30fps, but I feel every missing frame. 30fps is, well I wouldn't say unplayable, but it's far less enjoyable than it should be. Lower the graphics and give me higher FPS, an FPS at 30 frames is just not optimal and all it does is make me want a PC version.

#2. The field of view is AWFUL. The amount of screen space you have is just downright bad and actually damages my ability to play. I can't see the enemies right next to me, I have to turn all the way around to find someone. The guns need to be a bit smaller and the FOV needs to be turned up a lot. It also makes me a bit nauseous when everything is so enclosed.

The game is good but could be so much better if those two things were fixed, they make the actual gameplay far less than what it could be. I'll probably either get it when it's half off, or wait for a PC version that hopefully comes out eventually.

Has anyone here played Aliens: Colonial Marines? I know it has a bad reputation for being an awful game, but how much of that is fans being way overhyped and thus being disappointed, and how much of that is the game actually being legitimately bad? I watched some PC gameplay and honestly it doesn't look so bad, not the best FPS footage I've seen but from what I can see it looks decent and worth 20 bucks or so if you're an Aliens fan/just want an FPS to play.

Got the Destiny Beta but haven't loaded it up yet. I got the WoW Warlords of Draenor beta right before the Destiny beta began so I have been playing that. Seems a lot better than MoP.
