To be honest, I hope doesn't do that. His sole reason would be a wicked way to get more money kist like with Ground Zeroes. That will break the rythm o the game and kill the atmosphere. The interruption in a horror game is the worst thing to do.

Not sure what that would really be like or how they would do it but it seems too different, so people will probably just be against it, thinking it's not a true AAA full feature or something, it just goes too much against tradition and what people are use to.

I like what Borderlands does, they release the game, and then they pretty much end up releasing a whole sequel amount of game in downloadable episodes over time. I think that's pretty cool, but they don't tell people that the full borderlands experience will be delivered to them over 2 years or anything. But that's kinda what ends up happening.

it s the new way for companies to drain you from money ..i didnt expect from Kojima to do it will be a lame descision

Wasn't Siren Blood Curse episodic?

Catoplepas1520d ago

It was, and it suffered because of it.

All this does will prevent me from buying day one and wreck the progression system treating it like a tv show waiting for the next one. Thats something telltale does no one else should

Still no news on whether or not the game will be a PS4 exclusive huh? As for the "episode" format, as long as the "first" episode has enough content, depth, and at least 20 hours of game play, more power to em'.

This really sucks, I don't mind Telltale doing episodic I understand they are a small company and need some income and cannot wait to finish the whole game before getting any money... but from Capcom and Konami i don't find episodic structure acceptable

Tbf Telltale are pretty successful now, I think they just do episodic now because it's their 'thing'.

I like TellTale (except for the endless and personally boring walking dead games) but I typically wait for the complete game on disc to play through. I can't stand the game stoping right when I'm getting into it. I've done that with just about all their game except Back to the Future and I will do the same with game of thrones.
