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!

    KORNdog I mean, i get it, they're attempts at those sort of games (sunset overdrive, quantum break etc) havn't exactly captured the last of us level of quality, but it isn't a reason to stop trying. (11 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: sounds like spencer is bringing games as a service to the forfront. Less traditional single player experiences, and if thats the case i have no interest what they're peddling. (12 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: wouldn't bother me. My unbought list of games i want is about 10 games long already. That should serve me until 2018 easily. (37 minutes ago)

    AndreasZ94 I hope we didn't get all the good stuff on the first half and the second half of the year is gonna be shit or something,lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Wtf is going this year!? We got tons of amazing AAA games, most of them from Japanese devs and now we're getting tons of amazing indie games as well. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Megido: The phrases people keep using about What Remains of Edith Finch are "unlike any other game of the genre" and "I loved this game while I didn't care for games like Gone Home and Ethan Carter". (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido And it's obviously down to taste. "Games" like Soma, for example, isn't for me. (3 Hours ago)
