To say that Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Season 2 is eagerly awaited would be a massive understatement. So, the fact that PC gamers are reporting login problems and are a bit miffed about it would be an understatement.
PC gamers are in fact reporting: "Login Error Can't communicate with Telltale Servers... I am very upset :( very heart breaking," and then some. Over on the official forum, one user reports:
"Getting the 'Can't Communicate with Telltale Servers' within 5 seconds of Clicking to Begin. This really feels like the same issue that plagued season 1 both on the launch day for each episode as well as trying later."
Another reports, "(I) got a code from Green Man Gaming, and it's enabled here on Telltale. I can't log in because it says I don't have the game. This is unacceptable."
