if anyone cares to join me on the story tangent:

storytelling, plots, and narratives + videogames

Damn this sounds like a Plastikman track (spoiler-free!):

this is probably a good thread to say that i didn't realize until last week that life is strange 2 came out!

LIS has such a cool vibe i just recently played it

I bought LIS last month! Haven't had the chance to play it yet, but nice to hear it get the ILG stamp of approval.

Siouxie Sioux Vide (Leee), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 19:57 (one year ago) link

there are some cringy parts and it's not for everyone but i overall loved it .

I don't know this game (LIStrange). Is it worth $5 for the "Complete Series?"

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 9 January 2019 20:37 (one year ago) link

yes!

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 20:41 (one year ago) link

Oh, wait, it's for PS3, don't think I can play it on PS4?

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 9 January 2019 20:44 (one year ago) link

I bought it for PS4! It's pricier than the PS3 version of course: $6.

Siouxie Sioux Vide (Leee), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 20:45 (one year ago) link

I got that a while ago, and I need to backlog the other series and the sequel before I can even start the first one right

Nhex, Wednesday, 9 January 2019 21:50 (one year ago) link

there's only one episode of S2 out now iirc or maybe I've misunderstood

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 22:02 (one year ago) link

Nhex, I may be misinterpreting your post but from what I've gathered, LIFE IS STRANGE can/should be played before LIFE IS STRANGE: BEFORE THE STORM which is a prequel.

Siouxie Sioux Vide (Leee), Wednesday, 9 January 2019 22:08 (one year ago) link

i should go back to it. i played the first ep (maybe 2) and it was charming but not super compelling to me - maybe it picks up?

Mordy, Wednesday, 9 January 2019 22:15 (one year ago) link

xp ...right... also that prequel before LIS2

Nhex, Thursday, 10 January 2019 00:24 (one year ago) link

Hold up, is Life is Strange kind of a choose your own adventure game? Or are there control mechanics? If it's the former seems better suited for something like the Switch. Even then, I got Thimbleweed Park for the Switch way back and haven't really played it because I didn't find the gameplay (as such) compelling. The reviews of Life is Strange are super strong, but without seeking spoiler-y gameplay vids it looks like maybe it's a bunch of cut scenes connected by asking you to pick from a pair of choices?

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 10 January 2019 13:00 (one year ago) link

yes it is a story game where you make choices and walk around - not for everyone but i loved it and feel like it shares a vibe with last of us

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 10 January 2019 13:03 (one year ago) link

Which I haven't played yet, but that (this) one has character mechanics, right? You control the character, fight, hide, explore, right? It just has a strong narrative on top of it, correct?

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 10 January 2019 13:10 (one year ago) link

Last of Us is an action/stealth game

Life Is Strange is a supernatural story game

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 10 January 2019 13:40 (one year ago) link

life is strange is like a telltale game (tho not actually a telltale game)

Mordy, Thursday, 10 January 2019 14:53 (one year ago) link

one year passes...

seemed inevitable, consdidering how many movies/tv shows were blatantly inspired it since the game game out

Nhex, Thursday, 5 March 2020 23:19 (three months ago) link

hell of a time for this game to come out

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 15 March 2020 12:41 (two months ago) link

yeah, think i’ll be skipping this one for the foreseeable future tbh

one month passes...

is it a tv show or DLC where they convert all the content to COVID-19 carriers?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 19 April 2020 20:01 (one month ago) link

Oh and apparently there's a massive story spoiler that got leaked over the weekend on Youtube, so beware.

Judd Apatowsaurus (Leee), Monday, 27 April 2020 17:29 (one month ago) link

It's gonna be an annoying two months trying to avoid those spoilers.
