Do not discuss story spoilers (or share Let's Plays/other videos) for this episode here in the Waiting Thread - Doing so leaves you at risk of punishment. Episode Waiting Threads are meant to be spoiler free discussions, so please respect that. Discussion of spoilers from past episodes is okay.
We have decided to create this waiting thread slightly early due to the SXSW crowdplay coming up and the possibility of news coming from it.
Episode 1 is set to release this spring so hopefully we don't have too long to wait
We should get a Waiting Thread playlist of 70's songs going!
Will the crowd play be recorded on youtube?
Release date thread hype!
It isn't supposed to be streamed or recorded due to spoilers but it wouldn't surprise me if someone recorded some footage on their phone.
I am posting to make my mark on the first GOTG waiting thread.
I am currently on mobile, but if another mod wants to add this, I recall Dont_Look_Back found that the Season Pass Disc for Guardians was rated a couple weeks back.
Is it strange that I'm really excited for this game even though I know nothing about Guardians of the Galaxy?
Waiting thread, waiting thread, how I love my waiting thread....
I mean, in some ways it's kind of like a spiritual successor to Tales from the Borderlands, so I don't think that is too odd.
(Sorry if it's kinda big)

Awesome waiting for march 17th
agent mostlypoptarts will be on the case
And if you catch anyone filming.
Why does Telltale continue with this "crowd play weeks before release" practice? I mean, no one has spoiled anything big so far, but it's just a matter of time before some jackass does. And these crowd plays don't even take place one or two days before release, more like two weeks to a month.
it's them being cautious
They don't want players to spoil it so they must be keeping players in check
Just landed in Austin for SXSW!!
But they only risk spoiling people with these crowdplay events. There would be no risk if they just didn't do them.
The event is 6:30 to 9:00, so the episode is probably around 2 hours
Is it a coincidence that you guys just happened to do Crowd Play on the day that Iron Fist will air?
...St. Patrick's Day, too
There you go people! Now do you see Telltale has not fallen?! NOW DO YOU SEE?!
(Though, I'm betting that since the episode isn't quite finished yet, I believe it may be a bit shorter, and they'd have some Q&A? Feedback from the audience perhaps?) Gotta know what your fans think of it! <- and I mean that in the most sincere way, not the *"ew, telltale doesn't listen to their fans.." way.
Yeah, that's to be expected. I think at the least it will be around 90 minutes, but it could go up to 2 hours depending on how they handle things. I think Batman's crowd play for episode 1 was also 2 and a half hours, and that was in the 2 hour range.
There is no way in hell the episode is that long. They also mentioned they'd crowdplay the whole season even though it's not entirely done so that's probably why.
If what you said is the case then that "90 minute rule" they have been sticking by was just a sorry excuse for the laziness that's been happening.
Ha jokes. Just because walking dead has been known for having short episodes since Michonne doesn't mean other series can't go over the 90 minute timeframe, Batman episode 1 and 3 were in the 100-120 minute time frame. This is just the premiere of course, so future episodes will likely to be shorter than the premiere. I guess we'll just have to see.
They are crowd playing just the first episode.
Does anyone know if they're releasing the entire season at once or over time?
Even the title screen seems groovy
Job tweeted a pic of the "press A to begin" screen if anyone is interested.
The game will be episodic but i read somewhere that they could release the episodes weekly.
Ooh, now this is a pickle. Which do I reply to in extreme excitement for the wonderful title screen intel?
.. @freelancepolicefan11 for his quick postage of it?
Or @OzzyUK's inclusion of the tweet for proof?
[Hey it worked!]
If you want a username to tag it can't be the first thing in a sentence.
That's the first I've heard of it. Ok then.
What kind of conspiracy food is that behind them?
