I'll repost that part of my review of Ep4 where I explained that:
What I mean is, Tripp flipping out about Conrad is an obvious development - well, he just found out that Javier killed one of his own - but, thanks to Telltale writers, Tripp somehow decides to basically align himself with TNF (can't remember the exact quote). Which, given the story of episodes 1-3, doesn't make sense at all. Thus, from a likable go-to guy he becomes an idiot in the vein of Ep2-Conrad.
I'm guessing you're talking about this quote:
Maybe I'd be better off with Joan, least I know she wants to stab me in the back!
Honestly I don't see that as 'alinging himself' with The New Frontier. He's just saying that to express the distrust and hatred he just gained for Javi
It's very subjective, but after he basically told me to go fuck myself and the family, I thought that - given our interactions with him in Eps1-3, as well as explaining to him that Conrad went balistic - his wish to stay with TNF and not being part of the plan to rescue David from people that destroyed Prescott was a tad too extreme.
Later on, at the execution, Eleanor - when Joan asks her about the info she provided - is angry and almost shouts out "Yes, we did!". She stayed behind with Tripp, so I assume that he was aware of what she was doing. It's all just very stupid.
Besides, it made me realize the point of the final choice fake-out - for some it would be the easiest choice of the season (like it was for me) and I immediately went for saving Ava. Seeing how it played out, I went to the main menu and reloaded the game from last checkpoint and saved Tripp. Now I have it both ways to see how it'll change the finale.
According to Antero (cringe) the finale is 75 minutes long with a 13ish minute flashback included
Where are you seeing this? YouTube comments?
I can see it on reddit but there doesn't appear to be any press code packages added to Steam so i'm not sure where got that figure from is there was and supposed press leaks, i'm pretty sure it will be the same for consoles too so i am really sceptical about what he is saying.
