Oh yeah! I remember that now!
Man, what the hell happened? I honestly don't get it, Telltale's games still seem popular, it's not like everybody moved on. I don't think there's even an OT on Gaf for Season 3. I feel like everybody was constantly talking about TWD when it came out. Man.

I always enjoyed zombies as a kid growing up and for me personally the fad peaked around 2003-2006. After that I haven't really liked or payed attention to anything zombie related. TWD game and first season of TV show were a bit after that, but I think even at that time zombies were overplayed in media.

I really enjoyed season 1, but I wonder if it holds up (even just 5 years later) It was really the first Tell Tale game that they nailed in their current style and it was pretty different from most things on the market at the time. But after 5 years of them doing that copy/paste and other games doing it also, I'm just curious to see if it is still good.

I liked TWD S1 and S2, just waiting for S3 to wrap up. The releases have happened a lot faster than usual this time around, I think?

Hopefully it hits half off at the same time.

I really loved Telltale's Walking Dead season 1, and I still say it was the best game that came out that year. The only other Telltale series I've been able to finish is the Wolf Among Us. Everything else I'll either stop halfway through or I don't even feel like starting.

I got blindsided by the Nier Automata spoilers weeks ago (it's hard/impossible for me to mute or skip while driving) so I'm not letting that happen again. Timestamps seem to be wrong though, 30 minutes in and no Nier talk yet. Maybe they meant for the non-ad version.

I got Ending A in Nier before Persona 5 came out, but it'll be a while until I can resume. I've got at least 20 hours of P5 left based on the rate my friend played through it.

Even if he was playing with Japanese voices, text would still have obvious issues.

Also the english dub is good.

Some weird phrasing doesn't really make the dub inferior.

Definitely not the best dub this year though, because there's one that's mind-blowing in how good it is.

The dub itself is fine, except for some questionable pronunciations.

No I would say the English dub is defiantly inferior.
It's not bad (apart from some awful pronunciation) but it can't really compete with the all star cast of the original.
They clearly spent some serious cash getting those guys.

Same here. Adored season 1 and just didn't care for the rest of Telltale's TWD, it ended just about perfect. The holy trinity of Telltale -TWD Season 1, The Wolf Among US & Tales from the Borderlands.

But I don't know japanese, so I really would not be able to tell anyway.

And I used to be a hardcore Sub guy, believe you me. I still prefer them, but if the english dub is good I'll take it because I actually get more meaning from the inflections of a native english speaker more than a language I don't really know.

This new boom of board gaming is also suffering from this. Instead of only playing 5 hours of A 50 hour rpg it's people only getting a game to their table twice before the next hottest thing comes out.

I would play Persona 5 first. I can't stop thinking about Nier and it kinda sucks when I'm also trying to play Persona 5. I beat Nier weeks ago and I can't get it out of my head. I wish I could play P5 without constantly listening to the Nier OST or going down the rabbit hole every time I recognize a voice actor that's in both games.
