  3. Thinking about getting this game, but I'm confused...HELP!
2 years ago#1
I keep hearing great things about it, love the show, love the comics, so I figured I'd look into picking it up since it's only around $30 new locally. However, I have a few questions...

1) I keep hearing things about episodes, I assume they're what episodes, acts, progression, etc. would be, but they all seem to need to be purchased? I'm assuming from DLC? So basically I'm paying $30 for a disc and "Episode 1"?

2) How many episodes are there? About how long do they take to complete?

3) Is it worth the monetary investment? I have no problems paying $60 for a new game (hell, I paid $40 for Mass Effect 2 awhile back before the price drop, and another $40 for DLC), but is the length of game worth the price of a new game + DLC/Episodes?

5 episodes all together. If you want on disc its 30 like you said. All 5 come on one disc. But you can save 20 bucks if you just buy it online cause its a big sale. Each episode cost 200 points. You get the first episode for free. You can buy the other 4 10 bucks total. And the game is pretty long depending on the person or if you use hints or no hints.

Yeah, I think it's definitely worth a purchase. For me, each episode takes 2.5 hours. That's 12 hours for $10. I still have to do episode 5 but it's been a great experience.

Yeah I think its on sale until the 1st, I may be wrong. But first episode is free and the following 4 are on sale for 200MSP. Regular price is 400MSP per episode.

Im only on episode 2 at the moment and its really cool so far. Old school point and click style with a wide open story arch...good stuff
