The Walking Dead: Around Every Corner

The Walking Dead: Revealing the stats of episode 4

Spoilerific!

If you're yet to play the penultimate episode of Telltale's harrowing tale of survival and zombies, then don't watch this video. Don't even read this post. Go back to whatever it is you were doing, or, better yet, go and play the damn game. It might not be the best of the bunch, but it's still gut-wrenching as hell. 

Telltale has put together a brief video, breaking down the choices in Around Every Corner, and showing the decisions players made up until now. The Walking Dead has felt like a personal journey, through and through, so I honestly never really paid much attention to the statistics revealed at the end of each episode. However, there's admittedly something cathartic about seeing other people making the same choices that you did, especially when they turn out to be terrible -- which they are, nine times out of ten. 

I feel vindicated by seeing that most of the choices I made were also made by the majority of players, up until the end. I'm also a tad surprised, too. I mean, I felt pretty crap after I saved Ben, who has been without a doubt the most worthless piece of crap ever to survive a zombie apocalypse. I was so sure I was going to let him die, but nope -- I'm a stupid softy. 

Everyone who, like me, let Clem join them on their journey to the school deserves a pat on the back. You're meant to be protecting her, so leaving her with a dying man is just asking for trouble, besides, she has some gun training and a lucky cap. 

The biggest shocker was certainly discovering that most of you opted to be honest about the zombie bite. I would have been right there with you in the first episode, or even the second, but by now I'm a complete wreck and I don't trust anyone; so there was no way I was going to let a whole bunch of people with guns know that I'm about to start munching on brains in a few hours. 

The final episode is almost upon us, and I've left everyone but Kenny behind. He might be an angry redneck who murdered a man having a heart attack, but after the shit we've been through, from killing his son, to trying to support his insane delusions of finding a ship (okay, we did, but it wasn't looking likely for a while), I know he's got my back. 

So, what choices did you make? Do you regret them? Of course you do.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.
