I think this is my favorite episode so far. Between Jimmy's run in with Tony the talking toilet, Chuch's marvelous adventures with the space blanket, and some actual back story on Mike (!), the whole thing went by incredibly fast.
About the restraining order theory: Isn't it implied the cop was from Philly? Why would he respond to a 911 call in Albuquerque?
Honestly, the only games I'm really looking forward to this year are GTA V, Arkham Knight, and The Phantom Pain (which launches on September 1st by the way, woo!). I don't think I'll be getting Wild Hunt at release 'cause I doubt my PC would be able to handle it at higher setting, and I don't really wanna settle for anything less, so I might have to hold off on it for a few months.
While we're on the subject of Deus Ex, didn't the developers say there'd be new info about Universe at GDC? I'm really looking forward to that. Thanks to my recent playthrough of Human Revolution, I hold it in very high regard, so a sequel to that would be great. Hell, I'd even settle for more of the same.
Okay, I gotta ask: what's the spoiler policy for the thread? Could we get a spoiler tag in the title pretty please?
On a more general note, I really love the show. This season's been the best so far, and it's getting better with every episode. I've binged four so far, not planning on stopping anytime soon. Screw social life, all I need is the Underwoords and a bourbon-filled syringe.
Speaking of Deus Ex, I just wanted to chime in for a second and say that it's probably the best stealth game I've ever played. I installed both Blacklist and Absolution, but neither can really fill the shoes of DE:HR. I am so looking forward to hearing some info about Universe at GDC.
I was extremely skeptical, this being a spin-off and all, but I can't express how much I enjoyed it. Especially the opening scenes with the homage to Nebraska, and the other callbacks to Breaking Bad, minor or major, made it an emotional ride. Seeing Mike and even more so, Tuco, made me nostalgic and kind of filled the void that Breaking Bad left behind, which I didn't even know existed. All in all, it was a great pilot, I can't wait for the new episode tonight.
And I've also got a couple of questions:
Was the cop in the courtroom Huell?
What's wrong with Chuck? I didn't get that at all, made me feel really stupid.
I've played Telltale's other series as well, but so far, none of them have made me feel like I fucked up bad as much as this one. I swear, everything I do just makes things worse for the characters. I try to be good, I really do my best, but it always ends up blowing up in my face. What stood out to me in particular was losing the betrothal to Elaena. I mean, it's clear they both love each other, how could I have messed up so bad that they end up breaking up? Why can't these two crazy kids just be happy?!
But hey, at least Rodrik's alive, so that's good. I guess. I hope my choices don't end up killing him for real.
And Asher was, um...interesting? I'm not a fan of any Essos POVs in the books, but Asher's parts were surprisingly cool.
