Saw both TC and Pika's endings, not really much of a difference in how the scenes played out at the end. Regardless, thought the dynamics were solid, good episode. Hope the chars aren't killed off too quickly.
I... honestly... loved it? Like, this was the best episode since Season One imo. I really like how they're characterizing Clem, and her dynamic with AJ is both really compelling, but also unique from the dynamic between her and Lee. The new characters are all great and I already care about them more than I cared about basically anyone in Season Two or Three. The new artstyle is phenomenal, and even the music feels distinct from other seasons. I also really liked the exploration and combat, both felt really good. The pacing was solid, maybe a little on the slow side but that's made up for by the intensity of the ending, and the fact that I honestly didn't mind because getting time to just talk to and get to know these characters was really compelling.
So many moments felt genuinely sweet and charming, and a lot of it was actually funny! Especially Louis. He is actually hilarious. The war scene, talking to everyone before dinner, hunting... all of that just felt genuinely sweet. And if you can imagine this, getting to know and care about these characters made the intensity of the final few scenes feel even more impactful! But seriously, the ending was honestly really intense. Even stuff like how, at least for me, it felt like it took a little bit to convince Violet, and choosing to appeal to her wasn't just an immediate thing. I don't know, that was a detail I loved, but the whole thing was done super well.
The set-up for future conflicts is really intriguing, and while most of this episode was character building stuff, that's actually really great, because I actually care about these characters and what happens to them.
-Told AJ to climb through the window -Attacked Tenn(opps. I actually appreciate how much this got brought up. Probably didn't change anything, but still) -Went hunting with Louis and helped Louis instead of Aasim (#TeamFun) -Convinced AJ to sleep on the bed -Attacked Abel -Appealed to Violet (I didn't know if I could trust Louis in this case, seeing as Marlon is his best friend since childhood)
Best I can remember of the little choices: AJ payed his respects to Tenn's sisters, I convinced AJ to return Tenn's art supplies, I made AJ give Tenn back his toy
-Marlon is dead (I'm assuming this happens for everyone) -Brody is dead -Tenn is bitter -AJ is pragmatic -Louis is Heartbroken -Violet is.... guilty? I think it was guilty but I can't remember
So first off, not gonna lie..Kinda pissed my ANF save made me have the Kenny ending instead of Wellington. Guess that whole "Kenny's hat will be in S4" was BS but, eh. Kinda expected it.
EDIT: I actually looked in the game's files, and the scar is there. Guess it was just a glitch.
Fucking love Louis and Violet. They're both such great characters, not to mention having our first main LGBT character in the series that DIDN'T DIE AFTER ONE EPISODE.
Ten's a real good bean too. I was honestly kinda mad with how AJ was acting with him and Aasim (Who is also a fav of mine, because I just love the idea of someone chronicling the apocalypse like Althea in Fear). Wish I could've scolded him more.
Collectibles and combat was amazing. I really liked the trap scene.
Marlon's breakdown at the end was so fucking good. I actually thought he was gonna die in the end, but thought it would come down to either saving him or Rosie, not AJ blowing his fucking brains out. Gonna have a talk with that shitbird next episode.
Made AJ go through Window: Life lessons, yo Got AJ in the bed Went with Violet and Brody: Gotta go with my fav lesbian Attacked Abel: He might be back tho Violet helped me with Marlon: Lesbian power, yo
Violet: Guilty Louis: Heartbroken Ten: Helpless AJ: Pragmatic Brody: DEAD AF Marlon: DEAD AF
Got all collectibles but the fucking real flowers.
Best premiere episode of any TWD game by far. Can't wait for the next one! See ya'll later. If I'm not blocked that is, lol.
i liked it. got to do a hell of a lot more walking around than anf thats for sure, even if it's in the same location sometimes. hell, probably more places to walk about in this whole episode than the whole season of 3.
