Life Is Strange

Post by The Watcher » Mon Apr 18, 2016 1:45 am

Another in the genre of "game that's not really a game" that I like so much (think Telltale's The Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us, The Cat Lady, etc.). Like a very story driven point and click adventure title, minus old school puzzles.

Just finished the first episode; I was hooked before it was over. The ability to rewind time to redo choices - short term only - and then rewind it and set it back to the way you did it the first time, or even a way that wasn't available the first time around is sweet. All 5 episodes in the season are out now, digitally or on disc.



I give it a score* of (Y)

*My scoring system is secret and subject to change without notice, explanation, or assurance of constancy.

Adding onto what I knew already ("highschool lesbian adventure") is "dollops of Twin Peaks with splashes of Heavy Rain", I still don't know WTF this game is other than "liked".

What system is it for?
"Koolzone isn't some domain you can buy, its not a name, it's not a specific board software, its that special little place in our hearts, its the joy you felt when you were a kid on christmas and you woke up to go find presents under the tree. Its your first kiss, your lost virginity, its the love an abusive step father has for his son he never wanted because he really just wanted to get in the mom's pants but the kid was part of the packaged deal. Its the twinkling of a star as you look up into the night sky and realize how big the universe is. KZ isn't just some website or name. It's a little piece of magic in all of us. :) " -Omni

Had to look it up. it's on Windows, xbox 360, xbox one, ps3 and ps4. I waited for the physical release and got it all on one disc for $25, or episodes are available digitally for $5 each or as a bundle for $20

Edit: i didn't get to the lesbian bits yet when I read your post, now I have (not completed the game yet). Wasn't aware of that content when buying either.

Only makes me recommend it more though [face_blush]
