That's fine (referring to your latest VM to me). Whenever I really like a game or show or book, I also like telling at least one other on-line friend about it. I'll just consider your last VM to me to be a very strong recommendation to go along with what you VMed before about Life is Strange.
I'll probably give the game a try sometime soon. Your current avatar certainly looks great, and from what I've searched on "Life is Strange", it looks like it comes from that game.
I also have some PMs to get back to you on. I'll try to get to that later tonight or sometime tomorrow. Thanks for sharing all those doujins with me.
I just played through the newly released Episode 3 of Life is Strange....my brain just imploded....I saw the eventual outcome of this episode coming from a fair way away but damn...this episode was mind-blowing...I thought 2 had a major impact, but what happened in 3.....I can't find the words...
Seriously, this is THE title I've been searching all of 2015 thus far for....an utter miasma of positive and negative feelings with a ton of impact, solid characters, decent writing overall, unique visual perspective. Also confronting with social issues and moral conflicts. And its perspective on time travel...that really comes to the forefront in Episode 3....
Sorry if I sound like I'm ranting about something you're not interested in. Just that this has been what I've been waiting all year for.
This one, while suffering the odd lapse in dialogue quality, is quite something. Rare to see a story this involving and inmpactful in gaming.
It's called Life Is Strange. 1st part came out in January, 2nd part in March, 3rd part came out a couple of days ago. Parts 4 and 5 will be out by the end of this year. It's choice driven and has some serious consequences based on them.
It's essentially about a girl called Max Caufield and her time at Blackwell Academy. She's recently turned 18 and has moved away from her parents to return back to their original home - Arcadia Bay in rural Oregon (aka redwood country). She is a photography student, a bit quiet in that she doesn't open up to many other people but is a good person and overall reliable friend. She learns through a traumatic incident that she now has the ability to rewind time. As a result, Max learns that there are several sinister happenings at play, threatening to unravel her campus and the entire town. But the closer Max gets to the truth, more people will do anything to stop her.
I'll only link Part 1 for now. I'll see what you think of it. It may seem a little weird early, but trust me, once Chloe appears to team up with Max, this game is stellar. Time travel, possible yuri subtext, great story, far better than average of handling social issues, adult females. I think you'd like this.
Drawings of a depressed office lady. They're simple yet so effective and honest. I found it impossible not to be moved by these. Particularly that in a vicarious world, this has the opposite effect, invoking a lot of sympathy instead.
The timing of that last Visitor Message was excellent, LS. It's very appreciated.
In fact, after some of the replies I got yesterday, I decided to go back and read what you said to me back in January 2013 in a different Visitor Message. That was useful, because it helped me disengage. Your advice, and my own "never get into a 1-on-4 debate where you're the 1" personal rule was thankfully enough for me to think "I've said my piece, minds aren't likely to change, so it's now time to get out".
I'll probably write more to you in a VM later on. I have to say that I definitely value how much of a true friend you are. I won't ever forget how you're consistently there for me during my toughest times here on AS.
