Life Is Strange 2: Episode 5 verdict-o-chat (the end!)

Alice Bee: I have performed the summoning ritual (the ritual is: sending an email) and called errant skate boy Brendy back for one last job before retirement. It is, after all, time for the last episode of Life Is Strange 2, a harrowing road trip game about two brothers trying to make it from Washington state to Mexico. And since we started the journey together,…

Life Is Strange studio announce Tell Me Why

Dontnod Entertainment today announced their next teen story 'em up, named Tell Me Why. It'll see two twins trying to unravel grim mysteries of their childhood, a problem compounded by Tyler and Alyson Ronan having different memories of the events. Sticking to Dontnod's beloved northwest America, this time it's pushing into small-town Alaska, and mate I'm well up for whale-watching. Have a peek in the…

Life Is Strange 2 runs into ratings trouble down under

Spooky-ooky coming-of-age story Life Is Strange 2 has run into trouble with the Australian Classification Board and will be removed from sale down under for about a fortnight while they sort this out. If you already have it on PC (called a 'compo' or 'pozza' in Australia, probably), you're grand. The developers don't say exactly what the dispute is about, but I'd wager it's down…

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 4 verdict-o-chat

Caution: Spoilers, duh. Brendan: Hello, Alice. This is going to come as a shock but listen, you’ve been in a coma. Incredible I know, but while you were unconscious Life Is Strange 2 released the fourth episode of its road-tripping choice-o-rama, and now that you’re back in conscious reality I’d like to table a discussion on what the hell happened after the explosion on that…

Life Is Strange 2 episode 4 treks into stores

Troubled runaway scamps Sean and Daniel Diaz are back. The fourth episode of Life Is Strange 2 released this week, with big brother Sean casting about a big desert in search of his lost brother. He isn’t in great shape himself, either, understandably, given everything he’s been through. Observe, a very melancholy launch trailer.

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 3 verdict-o-chat

Alice Bee: Hey Brendy. Why don’t you spark up a massive spliffer of weed-grass and join me here to talk about Life Is Strange 2: Episode 3. It’s called Wastelands, which I think might have a double meaning of some kind. Brendan: Oh wow, it does. [Inhaling] Whoa. Contains spoilers, dunnit

Life Is Strange 2 episode 3 now rumbling in the redwoods

Life becomes odder than ever in the third episode of Life Is Strange 2, released today. Our lads are still on the lam, reaching the redwood forests of California and--uh oh!--you know who's found in forests: hippies. And me. Often me. But it's hippies they're hooking up with this time as they continue to trek cross-country and, y'know, come to terms with puberty and superpowers…

Life Is Strange 2 continues in May, ends in December

Square Enix have kindly given way-advance notice of three dates you'll want to stock up on tissues for, announcing launch dates for the remaining three episodes of Life Is Strange 2. I don't have foreknowledge of what will happen to kiddywinkles on the lam with superpowers but, y'know, they are kiddywinkles on the lam - one way or another, you'll be getting sniffly. Better book…

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 2 verdict-o-chat

Alice Bee: Hello Brendan. I suppose you’re wondering why I’ve gathered you, singular, here today. It is because we both played episode two of Life Is Strange 2, Rules. I am excited to talk to you about this because I think we might have had different outcomes this time. The Fabulous Diaz Brothers (™) had a hard time of it in the first episode (you…

Why did you do that, Life Is Strange 2?

Contains big spoilers. Monstrous. The second episode of Life Is Strange 2 came out last week, and it is barbaric. It sees the Diaz boyz trudging through snow and trying to get over winter by hanging out in a terrible cabin. Alice B and I will soon talk about the lads and their snowy escapades, like we did for our Episode 1 verdict-o-chat. But for…

Life Is Strange 2 Episode 2 out now, reintroducing Captain Spirit

Kids and superpowers are an obviously bad combination, a fact that Life Is Strange 2 seems to want to reinforce in its second episode - Rules - out today. Dontnod's adventure series continues as young runaways Sean and Daniel hole up with their grandparents for the winter, all while trying to avoid getting spotted by the cops. While they're settled down, there's powers to be trained, codes…

More games should be truly honest about death

This article discusses death and personal bereavement I never intended to make videogames about my brother. He died in May last year, standing in the crowded lobby of the Manchester Arena, at the hands of the radicalised young man who’d walked into the building and detonated a homemade explosive. I learned later, while numbly standing with a police officer in middle of the cavernous, shrapnel-damaged…

Life Is Strange 2’s second episode will come out in January

You awake to find a tall figure looming over you. It’s the news. It looks tired and wild-eyed, like a shadow too exhausted to follow its master. Suddenly, the news shouts at you. “Life Is Strange 2!” it bellows. “You know, that adventure game about the two wee lads running away from their hometown? Its second episode is coming out in January! The developers said…

Life is Strange 2: Episode 1 verdict-o-chat

Brendan: Hello, Alice. I’ve just been dandering along a quiet highway in Life Is Strange 2. There’s no time-travelling gal pals in this one (at least, none so far) but there is a sad psychic pre-teen and his hoody-wearing brother. I don’t know why I’m telling you all this, you just played through it too, and we’re gonna have a chat about each episode as…

The Twin Mirror demo and the mysterious case of hey, what happened to my shirt?

Picture the scene if you yourself were Sam, the protagonist of Dontnod's new IP Twin Mirror. You wake up, hungover, in a cheap hotel room. You’re still in the jeans you wore the night before. Your mouth probably tastes like a tiny glue factory. A hotel staffer is hammering on the door because you’ve missed check out. Suddenly you realise: you’re not wearing a shirt!…

Dontnod’s Twin Mirror has a real wanger of an imaginary friend

Turns out, Dontnod's small-town mystery Twin Mirror does indeed have a fair bit in common with Deadly Premonition. I'd avoided mentioning my suspicions when the Life Is Strange studio announced their next game earlier this year, because I recognise I have a problem of shouting "THAT'S LIKE DEADLY PREMONITION!" any time I see e.g. a car, a vending machine, a tree, or a man in…

5 themes emerging in Life Is Strange 2’s first episode

It’s difficult to give a hugely meaningful preview based on hands-off footage, especially if that footage was all pre-recorded. What I can definitely tell you, if this will be any surprise, is that if you really liked or disliked Life Is Strange, you will probably have the same reaction to Life Is Strange 2 because it is Life Is Strange but more.
