Too alike to TWD
After playing TWAU, it was just too hard to find an actual liking to it, especially having read the comics. It follows a very, very similar structure to TWD
I like Telltale how they did their version of The Walking Dead but Fables (Comics) is a completely different story. The Walking Dead is allowed to kill off exalted, beloved and main characters because that was part of the flare and hook that the comics/show/game had.
However Fables is nowhere near like that. It's a constant struggle between Fabletown, and The Homelands. Sure random characters will die, but it's never unexpected, like during the battles, and if they kill off someone it's usually not someone important.
I can't fully judge this game too much because the other 4 episodes aren't out, but so far it's disappointing, especially if it revolves around trying to figure out who's a murderer and just finding more heads laid out on the doorstep. But random killings of characters you might grow a liking to just like in TWD just makes the entire game a waste of time if it's going to follow in the footsteps. Might as well call it "The Walking Fables"
I don't know what's with the Snow White dead deal, but I can bear with it right now, and only hope that she comes back alive properly like she should, especially being a main character. Realistically, I think having her "killed" is the worst idea Telltale's come up with, it was one thing in TWD to have a completely different cast of characters, but using actual characters from the Fables comics and killing off the wrong ones and just re-creating a different story? Absurd and idiotic. It's like talking to someone who read TWD comics before Season 1 of the show came out and hearing them complain about everything, even to this day I still go "who the fuck is Daryl Dixon?"
