What Remains

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season • Completed Episode 5: “No Time Left” • 25G • 20.44% of gamers unlocked this

That’s it. It’s done. After a marathon few months of chipping away at Telltale’s The Walking Dead, I think this Xbox run successfully concludes my playthrough on all the major platforms. The emotional ending has probably lost its punch for me, as does the ‘twist’, but as a gaming activity, it is a pleasing milestone to have a playthrough completed and registered against my Xbox account.

Of course, this isn’t the end for Clementine. Heck, there’s still at least another two seasons of goodness to go! And two DLC expansions – the first of which (400 Days) I’ll need to do in order to get 100% against this title on Xbox Live (the jury’s still out whether I’ll make the plunge). Long story short: I have no doubt there’ll be more Clementine to come as part of this challenge.

… all endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.

It seemed like an appropriate place to put this quote from Mitch Albom from The Five People You Meet In Heaven. I don’t think this is really cause for something so sage, but it is apt. Except, this time around we all know it’s time for a new beginning.

Bring on Season 2 … or The Wolf Among Us, whichever takes my fancy first!
