Re: Life is Strange (5 eps on 360,XO,PS3,PS4,PC) - Time Lords and hipsters, apply wit

I'm tempted, but I'd have preferred a Limited Edition on PC, since I already own the game on Xbox One.

Normally, I wouldn't consider it, but I enjoyed the soundtrack so much I'd spring for this edition. Too bad there's no PC version, at least for NA. I hear it'll be available in the EU.

I liked the game for the most part but not enough that I'll purchase a physical copy. If it had been available to buy in the first place I'd probably have bought it that way but I don't think it's worth a double dip.

By the way, for those interested...the physical copies are showing up for Pre-Order on Amazon, Best Buy and Gamestop too. I have some Gamestop credit still, so I'll probably put a Pre-order down over there.


Edit: Pre-ordered at Gamestop. (Giftcards being put to good use)

Looks like the PC version of the limited edition is available for pre-order, though they say it's extremely limited. They want $9 for standard shipping ($14 for 2-day shipping) though, so they can eat a bag of dicks.

Amazon still just has the Xbox One/PS4 versions for pre-order.

I've played a ton of games this year and this is still near the top of my list. Highly recommended if you haven't given it a shot yet.

BTW, the physical copies (LE and Standard) are being released today. Picking mine up and hope to dive into it after I'm done with Tales from the Borderlands (Episode 5, been a blast).

Re: Life is Strange (5 eps on 360,XO,PS3,PS4,PC) - Time Lords and hipsters, apply wit

Just finished this yesterday. Despite some flaws, overall an excellent game that I'm sure will be sticking with me. Really exciting to see the video game genre move forward as an art-form of storytelling. These days that's what I mainly play games for. Not for the online pwning, trophy collecting, and/or finger-twitch action sequences. But as a medium for interactive storytelling. It's very heartening there is a market for games like this.

I really need to play more smaller/indie games. I just don't have the time for 50-100 hour time sinks anymore (though I'll still make the time for the occasional mega-acclaimed game like Witcher 3 or Fallout 4). Believe it or not, I've never gotten around to playing any of the Telltale games. Though I downloaded a whole bunch in a Christmas special package recently.

I got the limited edition of this game a few days ago. Almost finished with episode 3 and I'm really enjoying it.

Re: Life is Strange (5 eps on 360,XO,PS3,PS4,PC) - Time Lords and hipsters, apply wit

Wrapped this up over the weekend and damn was it good. My only real complaints would be occasional conversations or background comments by Max or NPCs that didn't really feel natural to what was happening in the scene and the inclusion of collectible photos. I get that they have to do something for trophies, but with a game like this, I would just as soon they have a trophy for completing each chapter and that's it. For something this story-driven, it really breaks the immersion for Max to be wandering around looking at every little thing in the environment to see if she can take a photo of it. I just ignored those after the first episode.

Re: Life is Strange (5 eps on 360,XO,PS3,PS4,PC) - Time Lords and hipsters, apply wit

Finally got around to this one. Wow, what a powerful and moving experience. I wish I'd gotten around to it sooner. The writing and characters were unbelievable. The music was perfect. Total package. Damn, helluva mind fuck. This one's gonna stick with me for a long time, and be one of the rare few that you wish you could experience again for the first time.

As a person with a collector mentality it took me a while to get over the "is this the right choice?" rewind and see the other option. Once I let that go(for the most part) and just decided to live with my decisions, the experience was that much greater.

Looking back through the thread, and the percentages in game, I'm surprised by some of the outcomes. I had no idea you could let Kate die. That's huge. I'm actually curious how that affected the story going forward because that happened in Ep.2.

Easily the best storytelling and characters in a game since the original Bioshock for me. I'm with you, I'm loving all these smaller experiences this gen.

For the Frank scene... it took me awhile to pick the right choices so that we all end up peaceful. First time Chloe shot him and his dog. Multiple times after that he got stabbed in the leg. Finally we ended up friendly
That's fucking cool. Chloe shot Frank the first time with me, and one rewind later I nailed all the right choices. That seems remarkable after reading that flowchart.

fucking amazing game

the rewind feature was so cool to use, it really made u think about your choices and had me for some time deciding if i should use it.

Crazy shit happening at the end and confused as fuck episode 5.

just so many cool character moments, Max rocks!

Telltale games should be ashamed of their buggy, ugly looking games compare to this. ;D


for another season

I'm pretty sure the studio has said they plan on making another one after the overwhelming success it had. Their next game Vampyr comes out next year so I would assume it would happen after that.

Nothing for Warren? Wow, that's cold. I kissed, figured it was the end of the world and he deserved it. Also thought something would get rewound to where it didn't happen anyway.
