*clutches my Life is Strange vinyl soundtrack*

Interesting that the previous games are getting a remaster. Not sure I'll pay extra for that l, but I'll wait to see how much of an upgrade it is.

Trying to decide if I should preorder this. Would like to see some reviews first. There are four bonus outfits for Alex if you preorder. Not sure if I should drop $80 on this. Hope the embargo lifts before the 9th.

Okay preordered the Ultimate Edition. My son wants to play it with me, then play the remastered previous games next year.
BTW the Remaster went up for preorder for $40, so paying $20 more than the standard edition for the DLC and the remastered games seems like a great deal.

Went with the PS5 version for (hopefully) some cool Dual Sense integration with aura perception.

^ Definitely a solid deal if you're wanting the remaster. Personally I can't imagine replaying the game or any of these types of games, but especially LiS1. My experience was... my experience.

Played through chapter one. Itís pretty cool. Seems like it has less exploring than the first two LiS games (never played 2). I can leave the controller on the sofa for long stretches except for the occasional Square or Circle button press. Looks great. Voice acting is outstanding. Disappointed by the Dual Sense feedback here which is just garden variety rumble.
Iím probably more cautious in this play through than I need to be, but thatís because the last time I played a game set in a small Colorado town with an abandoned mine, (Until Dawn), things went very, very badly.

And I am so going to make Alex LGBT. That DJ Steph is insanely HOT.

The Steam version is being review bombed by Chinese people because evidently there is a Tibet flag in it.

Lol.

I just finished and, as with the past ones, really enjoyed it. It's probably bad when a game series makes you cry more than real life, though.

Looks like 9-10 hours is the consensus online for a normal playthrough.

Yeah, that sounds about right. It certainly didn't feel like I was rushing it, but I've had a hectic few weeks and finally got a chance to turn on a console and play for hours on Saturday.

Ha! Yeah, I nabbed an Arkanoid #1 score, but Foosball was rough. I just took the loss.
