Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1 spoilers, posted by Derek

A couple spoilery discussions for Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1.

Okay.  So.  First of all, I’m *much* more obnoxious than I usually am as a PC in this game.  My Clementine is hard and bitter.  When the pregnant woman came in and started talking smack to her, I didn’t mess around.  I didn’t try to make friends (like I’d usually always do).  I just said “Oh, whose baby is it?”  Shut her up, pissed her off, but I didn’t care.  I just wanted her to leave me the hell alone, because it was hard.  I put her in the “enemy” bucket and finished with her, which meant getting her out of my way, so I could make friends with other people in the house.

When Clem met the daughter, and the daughter said “We can be best friends!” I at least said “Sure.”  But then when she said “Promise?” I couldn’t bring myself to say “Yes.”  The only legit choice I could make was “No.”  I was hoping for a “I can’t promise anything,” but of the choices, “No” was the only one I could do.

And then the end of the Episode – choosing between the two.  The first time through, I picked the kid, because the old guy looked bit.  No consideration, no hope, just “Oh, he’s done for, maybe this kid can live.”  I actually reloaded and went back to pick him, because I’m thinking it wasn’t a bite, but a wound.  But my first instinct was “He’s compromised, drop him.”

And then there’s the stiches.  O.M.G.  That was possibly the hard scene I’ve ever played in a video game.  “Move right to draw the needle through your arm.”  Clem is screaming, the flesh is squishing….It was traumatic, and horrible, and a fantastic bit of gameplay that I never want to do again.
