Why didn't they just use footage of the McPoyles, we haven't seen those shots on West World before & they really show you the menace and evil in William's heart.

Dolores isn't a McPoyle, and as we know they keep their bloodline pure as the driven snow...

I think you're blowing this out of proportion, it will all make sense when we get to the maze pariah ghost nation territory Escalante the edge of the park the door the cradle the valley beyond the lake formerly known as the valley beyond.

Wait just a tick, didn't they find the tiger corpse at the edge of the lake that hasn't been created yet? Doesn't that imply that Rajworld Grace hasn't arrived yet?

No, it was established that there are rivers in the park and they are probably on at least one park border.

My assumption was that William raped Dolores in the barn more than once. And that, like, lots of other people had done the same.

People have just assumed that, because it hadn't been contradicted yet, but there's actually no evidence that the scene happened after his wife died - and now there's evidence to the contrary.

I mean yeah, ofc William could have done that same song and dance with Dolores many times over the years. I just get people saying it's jarring using that shot from the pilot. Did it take me out of the scene? for a hot second. Do I think it really matters, though? nah not really.

If Billy owns Delos which owns WW, why does he have to gently caress around for 30 years waiting for Ford to jump off the deep end and let the hosts go crazy. Why can’t he just send out an email like “hey, turn the bullet protection off I wanna be able to die tia”

Probably because "my boss told me to kill him" doesn't hold up in court

yeah tbh. I think he's genuinely so far gone that he didn't want to deal with even the tiniest delay of his men trying to bring him back to the mesa where it's safe, what with the hosts revolting and all. Him thinking they were hosts makes sense and him knowing they were humans makes sense, for me at least. He's going to finish this game of Ford's no matter what.

I played the mobile game for about a day. It's... pretty much exactly what you would expect from a mobile freemium game. I would never have even given it more than 10 minutes if I wasn't so into the show. One day is about how long it takes before you hit a serious roadblock where it's obvious that if you want to keep progressing at a reasonable speed, you'll have to pay up. I mean, if you want to call it "progressing".. it's hardly a game if you can't really fail. Again, just like 90% of mobile games. I'll admit that it was interesting to see how they would turn the concept of the show into one of these things and the system they came up with is kind of creative. It would work as a legit RCT-style strategy sim.

This. It's so bad. It's essentially a reskin of Fallout Shelter, another bad Simtower wannabe. There clearly are only two mobile freemium games that let you play for reals and that's Rules of Survival and NBA Live (w console level of gameplay).

I guess you don't need to make a game with gameplay if it makes money though!

Oh it absolutely uses the same engine and poo poo, I can't believe this isn't some engine licensing situation or something. A company that got hired to make parts of Shelter just straight up re-used a bunch of stuff. That's hilarious.

That's how mobile game development goes. As soon as someone comes up with a mildly successful game concept there's a 1000 copies of it within 2 weeks on the app store trying to sponge up a little bit of that microtransaction cash.

Yeah, this isn't even the first Fallout Shelter copy I've seen. There's some kind of cartoon fantasy castle game that looks awfully similar.

This isn't a "you made a similar game" thing. The company that made this game was hired to work on fallout shelter and they copied that code to make this game.

I know. I read the entire article. I even looked at the ads! Who made the castle game? I assumed it was the same people since it looks the same as Fallout Shelter.

E: I checked. It's a different company.

Hey speaking of Teddy "Flood"...

...if he just blew his brains out, how does his corpse end up floatin' in the giant lake by the end of the two week timeframe with everyone else? Bernard says he killed them "all" -- did he mean he killed all of them, minus Teddy, who was already dead but just sorta got dragged along? Ala Weekend at Bernie's Bernard's?


edit: another idea -- when William talks to Ford in the flashback bar scene, Ford says, "Ohh... I just came to... pay my respects." Is this a hint that William died long ago?

Uh, excuse me, Bernard is clearly shown to have killed only 7395 of the hosts in that lake, yet there were 7397 hosts floating in it, and yet he said "I killed them all"?

This is clearly a huge plot hole and furthermore
