it's a shame it'll be ruined by jerky, unpolished half assed animations. like all telltale games. i like their whole episodic approach, but it's clearly hurting their ability to polish up the visuals.

Oh yes looks gorgeous, hope this is as well acted as Walking Dead. Never read Fables even though they're well-loved, so will be fun going into this world fresh.

I played Walking Dead on PC and it wasn't jerky and unpolished.

Yeah, it's a nitwit of a nitpick. I get what he means but it's not something that I can't live with in a $15 game.

I just find it kinda unacceptable for a game all about character and interaction to have such wonky and unpolished movements. It just feels like a good few extra months should be used between episodes. Takes longer, but makes for a much better experience. Even telltale are aware of it. So it's not like i'm pulling it out my ass. They're getting better though, just not at a quick enough pace imo. I realise the games are cheap, but that doesn't really mean i want them to FEEL cheap.

It wouldn't win any awards in animation, but it doesn't ruin the experience or appearance. I don't know what it looks like on other devices but it was fine on PC. I'd be fine with TWD S2 being exactly more of the same but with new content.

Totally agree with you on this. I was skeptical about the game entirely but ended up really loving it. However I will never get over how horrible and unpolished the game feels. Jerky animations, horrible kinematics and controls were not very smooth. Characters, story, writing great. Art pretty solid. Animations were garbage. Lack of polish really keeps me from having any real loyalty or excitement from future Telltale games.

Textures look a hell of a lot cleaner, so that's good.

Now that they've had a hit, have some money and time, I'm sure all your hatred will be smoothed out KornDog.

Looks INCREDIBLE!

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (7 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (7 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (9 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (9 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (9 Hours ago)
