Telltale Games shuts down (UPDATE: all remaining Telltale games to be delisted on May 27th)

So update, if there’s any games you’re interested in but holding out on getting, you might want to get it. Telltale Games have started the delisting process with Walking Dead, Back to the Future, and Tales of Monkey Island getting delisted from digital storefronts.

For anything I’d recommend, Sam and Max, and Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Awesome People are both great games, and likely both will be immensely difficult to get after delisting due to the only physical editions being the ones Telltale made nearly a decade ago and sold out long ago for season owners.

Telltale’s closure is another striking and shocking blow against the digital future we seem to be heading towards. So many games just suddenly gone.

Wow, that's pretty sad seeing how Telltale Games can't even keep their games up on digital storefronts. I sure hope that the staff at Steam can figure out some workaround to assure their games won't disappear for good. Otherwise, how will people enjoy their games?

Anyways, this whole situation with Telltale Games closing down is tragic. Even though I haven't played The Walking Dead yet, it's still sad to see the company go.

Still, didn't anyone notice that the Telltale Twitter was repurposed for a TWD Game account?

Makes sense, I believe they were planning to shut down the site, and were giving warnings to download any purchased games before it happens.

It fucking sucks, it also means there’s games you can never get back again, including Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures.

Oh man, sorry to here that.

With me personally, not only was I in the middle of reviewing Episode 2 of Batman The Enemy Within  when I noticed the drafts weren't saving even after reconnecting, but there were writeups there I wanted to copy that the Wayback Machine isn't reaching far back enough for me to retrieve. I'm just stuck getting what fragments I can make pop up in a Google Search.

EDIT: Holy shit, I found a way!

GOG.com is delisting all remaining Telltale games on May 27th. It's safe to assume that this will apply to other storefronts such as Steam and PSN.

TWD is currently on EGS and is owned by Skybound Games, so it will remain unaffected by the takedowns.

Seeing it confirmed that Sam & Max and Strong Bad is as good as gone stings, was hoping they'd remain through Disney/the original creators retrospectively.

If anyone hasn't, I'd absolutely recommend Sam & Max, Strong Bad, and Hector Badge of Carnage.

Also, don't sleep on Puzzle Agent. I picked up both games based on Ross's Game Dungeon video, and he had nothing but glowing praise for the first game.

It's like Fargo mixed with Gravity Falls, and it plays like Professor Layton. It's the kind of game I would have loved back then if I had paid more attention to it.

I decided to download and play the final two episodes of the final season of TWD. 

May as well spoiler tag:

Spoiler

As an overall season it was pretty unremarkable (probably the weakest). Just the same old gameplay and boring story. Season 1 with Lee is by far the best.

When I played the final episode I didn't realise that Rosie (AJ's dog) automatically grabs Clem's cap which was floating down the river. I kept restarting trying to collect it with AJ thinking I'd missed my chance (as I didn't realise AJ always automatically fails to grab it). 

I'm happy with the ending. I thought they'd go with a similar fate for Clementine as Lee got at the end of season 1. I really thought she was dead. Glad they didn't kill-off Clem. Instead she just lost the lower part of her left leg.

Edit:

Skybound is doing a definitve edition with improved visuals featuring all four seasons:

Yeah, ultimately glad I couldn't get the original retail version.

Spoiler

I and several others felt she should've been determinant, though.

Wow, the screenshots are low res... I mean, I can expect them to be better in-game but, wow.

A completely unnecessary change but what can you do?

Okay, so I kept forgetting to say something because my memory can fleet sometimes and this wasn't coming up when convenient, but the Community just sorta stopped being able to be posted on for however many days or even weeks it's been and apparently finally started working again this morning.

My goodness, what a ride.
