To Tell or Not to Tell? | March 10, 2012

by Joe

*SPOILER ALERT!* Please watch today’s scene first! :D

Should Bernie tell Jake that Rosa, now infected, is in the colony? Is it better to tell him now to avoid any unpleasant surprises and mistrust in the future? How will Jake, the colony’s acting military leader, react? Vote now in the forums! :D

Finishing up Demon’s Souls hopefully this weekend, so I should be getting my life back soon :D Damn your immerse addictiveness, Demon’s Souls!

As for TPD2, I’ve been given the idea of having different regions for each of the monster types – zombies, mutants, vampires, machines, and plants. I like this idea since it makes sense that machines and vampires, for example, wouldn’t fight as a team. What do you think of, instead of having wave -> pre-battle screen -> wave -> pre-battle screen -> wave, etc., TPD2 featured a map system that would let you travel from region to region, unlocking stages as you went? So, like Demon’s Souls (heh heh), you could start at Region 1, Stage 1 (1-1), then move to 2-1, unlock a unit, then go back to 1-2. What do you think? Feel free to join the brainstorming and discussion in this forum thread! :D

The feeling must be mutual… and so they must trust each other. But trust can not be established when one keeps secrets. In short, Barnie has to tell Jake for the sake of being the protector of New Hamsterdam(can’t remember how it’s spelt).

Joe’s going to explode sooner or later… And Bernie shouldn’t tell Jake because of Rosa’s on and off thirst.

no. i don’t think Bernie should tell him. he has feelings for her and she trusts him. sides, it’ll be fun if/when she goes on a rampage and nobody wants to pull the trigger.
as for joe’s silence… Rosa will soon learn that “spiteful words can hurt your feelings, but silence breaks your heart”… maybe that’ll cause her rampage… either way, is it to much to ask for her to die? kind of tired of her bitching…

I think he should tell him but let him swear before that he tells no one else. AND i want to see Joe burning down the whole city. I’d loved to see his eyes at the moment rosa told him about bernie.

Bernie should tell him.
Also,I guess that Joe will go on a rampage EXACTLY when the machines attack,and by the dumb luck of the survivors he’ll charge the machines..

Small typo. When Jess says Bernie even put a bullet in him it says Bernie even put him a bullet in him. Or it could be right. But doesn’t sound right.

I think Bernie will tell Jake about Rosa. They are friends and there was too much troubles already caused by the secrets kept. Time might even need for Rosa’s help against the machines. Since Jake is the leader now, he should know if anything should happen to Bernie or Jess – that’s what Bernie is thinking – I think q-:

I went with yes. Jake isn’t someone who becomes angry for a stupid reason. I think Jake’s a pretty intelligent guy who would understand the situation but still give good advice. Bernie should consider Jake his friend and ally, not an obstacle.

Also dangit Joe! Not all love works out! Ya gotta realize! *shakes*

Seriously? Jess tells Harry not to let Joe burn down the apartment? Doesn´t she know from experience that Joe will do whatever she tells Harry not to let Joe do????? I bet that at one point Joe WILL burn down the apartment!

I think he should tell Jake but just in case he freaks out or something he should suggest blood donations from citizens for Rosa.

with joe in his depowered state I have a feeling other joe might burst out and kill someone because If I remember correctly other joe is only present in terms of extreme emotion and this is a really f**king extreme case of emotion for joe. So let’s hope everything is ok.

“Oh shit, we’re fucked.” Famous last words. I am so sorry for Joe sometimes. This is entirely not his fault, but it’s the hand he’s been dealt with. Poor guy!

Also, Jake should be told. It’s his responsibility to keep the colony safe, so despite the friendship and the imminent freak-out when Jake finds out, Bernie should tell him about Rosa.

Jake’s been used as a pawn by too many of his “allies” so far. He’s a good guy but this is really gonna make him angry if he’s left in the dark again and someone else gets hurt.

Bernie should tell him so he can at least be prepared.

Walking away quietly like that was the most mature thing I’ve seen Joe do in awhile. Inner Joe may be his “Hulk”. His inability to emotionally deal with situations split his ego. Outer Joe really needs to grow more as a person if he’s going to defeat his inner demon.

Joe is the protector of New Hammerstadt, and Bernie is too. His loyalty has to be to the community first. Rosa may be their friend, but they have to come to a solution that doesn’t lead to more dead citizens. Joe deserves to know, and Bernie needs to tell him.

Tell him.
If it comes down to it and Rosa has to die, that’s how it’ll go, unfortunately. The colony’s safety comes first, and truth is needed in this communicating of events.

I think that Bernie should tell Jake I mean, they’re best pals right? Bros understand each other. But, as someone said, I think Joe will just go into an ALL CAPS RAGE and berserk through the battlefield, killing people and destroying machines left and right.

i think for TPD2 you should be able to go to different sections, such as the north wall, south wall etc each having its own type of monster and then you could also have like a destroyed section of the wall, sewer entrances subway stations, maybe even an underground tunnel that some desperate enemies dug through too new hammerston.(Mutant mole people!)

really starting to hate Rosa, what has Bernie done that makes him so much more wonderful than Joe? Joe’s done nothing but try and be the nice guy to her, he rescued her from the zompires, gave her his own blood, n even then she chooses inner joe over real joe. What has bernie done for her that’s so great?! n now she does this. I’m gonna say this is gonna be a big change for Joe. I just hope he dosen’t just sulk or take it out on the others. More like I’m hoping he just becomes quiet n withdrawn for a while, then when the machines show up, he walks outside, destroys them, then goes back to his apartment without saying a word to anyone (though idk how he can do that without his powers, specially when we don’t really know how he can get them back without unlocking or making a deal with his darker joe)

I said it ^^
@Torjianmaru
You know the internet proverb,”Hates make me famous”? Well,Joe is famous.

I wonder what is happening to Joe. First,he apologizes to Jess,now he’s walking out of the room without saying a word.

Hide the kids,war’s coming..
..in all his blazing fury.

@Trojianmaru: One could say you don’t determine who you get a crush on. Hormones and all that.
But seeing things from Rosa’s view: She’s known Bernie longer than now because Bernie has been around the base longer. To her, Bernie is a stable nice boy who wants to protect everyone. Joe was just a person who appeared as a survivor, made silly comments, enjoyed her pancakes and then suddenly claimed her to be his wife. Who puts her in danger with some creepy plant things. Who has some evil thing in him that he couldn’t control. This doesn’t exactly scream boyfriend material.

“Let’s go, Rosa. Let’s just go. Now’s not the time push him.”
Now’s not the time to push him.

It’s been over a week and nobody noticed this typo?
