Nice review, Gary. I agree wholeheartedly, though as you recall, I didn't until I knew that the 'difficult' choices I made had no consequences. Entertaining as always, but ultimately disappointing. Good to see you still writing, and getting better all the time, it would seem.

I feel kind of bad for making you peek behind the curtain. Amid The Ruins got plenty of good press (my counterpart at this very site enjoyed it a lot more than I, no less) but it continues to strike me as the weakest episode yet. I'll effortlessly forgive it if the series ends on a high, but I'm not reviewing the entire season. Yet.

Thank you for your kind words, and thanks for reading.

EPISODE 4 SPOILERS Great review, and I agree with a lot of your points. The high death count in this one felt odd. I mean, I liked the cabin group more than I expected, but it was like being told there was very little point caring about all of them bar one (whom it was obvious from the start would be the primary character from the new cast - even without considering the actor playing him).

Where I liked Episode 4 more than you is I felt that my Clem developed in a meaningful way slightly after being influenced by everything Jane tells her (e.g. I had Clem rob from Arvo. She's a survivalist. And given how often this season she's headed tasks for the group, it's not a stretch that she would think everyone else is holding her back.) If there's an option in the finale where Clem has to decide whether to stick with what's left of the dysfunctional group or leave in order to fend for herself, I can totally see my version of Clem abandon everyone.

But I'm getting ahead of myself, and that was quite a tangent. It's how I'm playing Clem, anyway.

So.... that ending just happened.

I'm annoyed because the release is still buggy. I don't much care that the achievements didn't pop, but I don't think the choices I made will be popular, but choice percentages didn't pop either and now I have to replay it all over again if I want to know for sure. Blargh.

Yeah, the same thing happened to me. However, I loaded up the game again and my choices were saved - so all you need to do is go to 'My Choices' in the menu and scroll to Episode 5 and it's all there.

Two of my choices (including the final one) were wildly unpopular.

Oh -- yay!

Yeah, for me, my choices for 2 and 5 seem very unpopular but were very much who my Clem turned out to be.

Episode review by the end of the day.

Same! Choices 2 and 5.

I'm working on a review as well, but for the whole season. As August is nearly over, this will probably be my contest entry.
