9 whole minutes of Life is Strange: Before The Storm

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

As someone who loved Life if Strange and will probably play Life is Strange: Before the Storm [official site] immediately I have been avoiding pretty much all news and spoilers regarding the latter. To the point where I will a) not be watching this 9-minute video at all and b) don’t actually know what the game involves other than being set before the first game.

That puts me in rather a bind when it comes to this being a news story about a 9-minute video for Life is Strange: Before the Storm so here’s the thing: I’m going to embed the video after the jump in case you want to watch it and then just write a load of words I like so that there is #content BUT if Graham asks you could tell him it was a great and relevant news story full of insights and also perhaps that I deserve a payrise?

    Eh, you can safely watch this one. No spoilers, just Chloe with her attitude – except more like a real teenager this time.

    Holy shit, the writing is insufferable.

    • doxasticpirate says:

      I dunno, the writing seems … totally fine? Like, melodramatic teenage stuff, but it seems pretty good as a heightened version of what I remember…

      That said, lotsa credit for Speedy Ortiz…

    I can’t imagine a Life is strange without Max. It would be like a Batman without Bruce Wayne.

    Oh this isn’t Stranglehold :(

    Spoilers – that rumored cross-over with the Emoji movie is hella real.

    Please never put the words “polyp” and “avocado” so near to each other in a sentence again… between the mushy green flesh of the fruit, its large, smooth, round seed, and the basic fact of what polyps are, there are just too many horrible, horrible ways for those concepts to synthesize.

    A masterpiece of modern games journalism.

    p.s. I’m not watching the trailer either. I’ve decided in most cases absorbing too much about any game before playing it generally detracts from my enjoyment.

    Enough with the spoilers already.

    I once worked security at a whale knob despotic symposium. It was miserable and the food was awful.

    Bramble, Picnic, Catapult. Dogger, Fisher, Beetlegeuse. Rasta-mouse.
