Life Is Strange



I decided to create a thread for this game because no one hasn't yet.

The game is a 5-part episodic adventure game made by Dontnod Entertainment, the same people who created the action adventure game Remember Me.

Unlike their past game, Life Is Strange is more like a Tell Tale Adventure game except this game has a twist being the female protagonist Max, has the ability to rewind time and redo any choices she made.

So far two episodes have been released and it's getting some positive reviews.

Have you actually played it yet? I've played the demo on the ps4, and like what I saw. I read that the game has some campy dialogue at points; and I could see it being possible, based on what I played of the demo, but no proof of it in said demo. As a huge fan of Shadow of Destiny(PS2), I dig it enough to try it out; it's only 5 bucks, though I wouldn't mind an extra opinion on it =03.

I thought the game supposedly had multiple endings and all that(even if one is considered canon that continues into the next game). Are you saying the choices still have a linear path, even if the immediate outcome is different?

S'wat I heard. Along with characters not doing the most common sense thing that would fix the whole matter, but instead do the stupid thing and make everything more complicated.

I kinda gave up on these after The Wakling Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among us. Wolf being way better but still linear as hell.

Uggh, that's not good =0(. I would certainly be crazy to expect SoD-level of time manipulation(where ANY single action could potentially change the rest of the story around), but incompetent chars aren't really my thing =0\.

Since it's been a while since I've played this type of game, I might go ahead and get it anyway(5 bucks is nothing). As long as I don't have my expectations too high, I could just enjoy the story for what it is.

I don't know, I found myself surprisingly invested in the characters at the end of episode 2.

And this is from watching two idiots trying to be teenage girls.

There's a pretty significant event at the end of the second episode that may or may not have an impact on the rest of the series. We'll have to see.

It's interesting so far in my opinion. Still waiting to see if your choices really do matter in the end.

So far im enjoying this. I find this more interesting than I ever did in TWD and Beyond:Two Souls for examples.

There's just waaaay to much high school drama in this for me. It's repulsive.

Just finished episode 3.
The ending was kinda expected, but still shocking.

Speculation regarding Rachel is going crazy in my head right now...

I'm watching the Best Friends playthrough of it, and Episode 3 was a huge step up from the previous two. I'm actually interested in seeing where this goes.

Well, clearly it has maaaany different routes to go.
Now I'm in every forum, reading fan theories and speculation is going wild.

Same here, goddamn I'm invested in this.

Both Episode 2 and 3 had strong finishers.
