While not quite as hard-hitting and impact-full as Season 1 was, Season 2 of The Walking Dead has still nonetheless still provided some memorable moments.

Eh, I really don't know if I'm going to bother with Season 2 anymore. So far it's been extremely uneventful, with characters (apart from Clem obviously) that I really don't give a shit about.

Maybe all the talent that worked on Season 1 is too busy with The Wolf Among Us.

I have a feeling I'm gonna be playing this just so I can reach the last ten minutes.

Yeah, about that...

By Episode 2 of Season 1 we already had a great cast of memorable characters, and some great surprises and tense events. We also had the heart of the story with Lee and Clem. In Season 2 I can't even till you the names of anyone besides Clem.

You just need to learn to let go, they died man and it wasn't your fault. Just let go man.

Weird how the feel of this thread is all judgmental. We're only on episode 2 of this game, and IMHO it's a bit unfair to compare the whole of season 1 to a part of season 2.

Season 2 seems to be focusing on different themes such as isolation and coping with loss where as Season 1 was all about morality, and coming of age post apocalypse. They're already had some damn fine moments in the series and I think it's only bound to get better as the tension slow cooks to perfection (just like it did in season 1)

I just want another season of Sam & Max, or Back to the Future, or even Hector: Badge of Carnage.

Even so, the decision about where to sit was one of the hardest. I guess we'll have to see what actually happens in the episode to see what he is really like.

I agree with you but I can't help feel that this can be attributed a little to the fact that Season 2 is telling a different story. Things are much less stable and building relationships aren't so straight forward as when you were Lee. I do think they could have done a better job but at the same time I do see a compelling story.

It's not as eventful as the first season, but I will still go through it 'till the end regardless.

I already am half way in so why not see this how it will eventually end. Hopefully this episode will be longer, because the episodes from Wolf Among Us are way too short.

I'm actually liking this season more than I did the first, mostly because I just find Clem to be a much more interesting character than Lee was.

I think the perspective of a child character lends itself to a lot of interesting possiblities, I guess we'll see. Also, does anyone have any ideas on what's up with the episode 4 select screen? I hope to god Clem isn't going to end up joining some wierd cult

While I agree that the child perspective is an interesting one, I don't think that the game is really taking advantage of this very well. The group that Clem is with now seems to treat her with just as much authority as they would have with Lee. The grown-ups seem to be delegating all of the dangerous, leadership jobs to Clem for no reason other than "she's the player character".

Don't get me wrong, I'm still really enjoying Season 2 so far and I'm looking forward to where it's going. It just seems really weird and unlikely how much trust and reliance the group has on the little girl that just a few days/weeks (the game isn't clear in its timeline) ago was locked in a shed because they thought she was bitten.

I'm really digging Clem as a character in Season 2, but I agree that the new band of survivors are mostly unlikeable idiots. They're not even at each others throats in a Lilly-vs-Kenny kind of conflict, they just... make really stupid decisions. I'm hoping things will pick up in this episode.

Also, is it wrong for me to be more excited about Wolf Among Us?

I can understand how some people like the appearance of Kenny in the sense that it gives some closure to whether or not he was dead, and also some happiness that not everyone died from season 1, but to me, Kenny was a dick in the first game, and clearly hasn't changed a bit. Actually I think Kenny's a little farther down on the dick-scale, but I'd rather not use that kind of profanity in a public forum. Seriously though, as Lee, I chose to save a certain person's life in Ep. 2 and Kenny NEVER forgave me. Instead, he hung me out to dry every chance he got. Lee's getting attacked by a walker or something equally threatening, and Kenny just stands there watching, waiting for Lee to die. I tried to make up with him the best I could but he was ALWAYS sour to me, just because I wouldn't murder a certain someone in cold-blood in front of Clementine.

I can understand why Katjaa did what she did; it's probably a side-effect from being married to a guy like that. :P

Gonna have to agree with what seems the general consensus: Season 2 is good, but it just isn't as good as season 1. Unlike with Lee, i just don't feel any kind of attachment to the characters. Also, it seems as if episode 2 was just a big waste of time: We spend 90% of the episode running away from Carver, but get captured anyway. Apart from getting Kenny back, what did we really achieve?

Oh, and of course he's still a jerk. As Clementine, I was bonding with Alvin and Rebecca a lot during Ep2, what eventually happens? Kenny goes on a shooting spree in a hostage situation and gets Walter and Alvin killed. Only when Clementine is in danger does he finally act like a sensible human being. But even THEN, in the preview of the next episode he's scolding Clem for giving up. Yes, scold her Kenny. I chose to give up so no one would get killed, but he "remedied" that choice rather quickly.

I can understand why Katjaa did what she did; it's probably a side-effect from being married to a guy like that. :P

Alvin dying is actually completely your fault. Kenny will only shoot if you sit and do nothing to stop him at all. If you surrendered then you can save Alvin but shouting for him to stop shooting or to get into the line of fire, Carver will then knock out Alvin and grab Clementine instead.

If you went with Kenny then he'll only shoot if you're silent or you tell him to shoot. I totally understand why Kenny shoots, he has no idea what Carver was going to do. For all he knew Carver was about to line people up and shoot anyway so he fired in an attempt to save his friends.

For Kenny getting pissed off at you? I doubt that'll actually happen Telltale likes to change stuff and most players were not happy that Kenny suddenly treats you like Lee for some reason.

Oh wow!

And that last part, well, we'll see in 3 days. :) I really can't wait. I'm apparently one of those in the minority that likes the second season just as much as the first.

Well, this just made my week. I can't wait to be emotionally traumatized again. ^^

Woo! Finally!
