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…

In a teaser video, which you can see below, season 2 protagonist Daniel and Captain Spirit protagonist Chris share a brief dialogue, which promises a cute friendship between the two kids. And…

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.

Life Is Strange 2’s reveal trailer introduces us to the Diaz brothers

The Life Is Strange series isn't known for telling the happiest of stories, but the Gamescom reveal trailer for Dontnod's sequel Life Is Strange 2 wastes no time in letting you know that this one is going to be a downer. The video below gives us a brief introduction to the young Diaz brothers - Sean and Daniel - and gives us some hints as…

Life Is Strange 2 trailer teases a super superpower

As you may well have guessed after the superhero antics in Life Is Strange 2's free playable side story, The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit, it seems the sequel may well play with powers far less subtle than time travel. Ahead of the game's "reveal" later this month, a new wee teaser trailer shows a cop car (+associated cop) being flipped by something resembling a…

Vampyr improves performance in latest patch, next will add ‘Story’ difficulty level

If you enjoy Vampyr's bark but not its neckbite, then your story-drinking needs may be met by an upcoming 'Story mode' which tones down the combat. Or if you've mastered the murder murder murder kill kill kill of Dontnod's vampiric RPG and want more of a challenge, a 'Hard mode' will have your back. And probably put a knife in it. These two will arrive…

Vampyr’s first patch takes a bite out of some funny bugs

While no amount of patching (short of a Final Fantasy XV-style rewrite) will address its clumsy final act, flawed but fascinating gothic RPG Vampyr received its first patch this week. It addresses a few minor bugs and smooths out mouse and keyboard controls, including better lock-on targeting. Still, we're a little sad to see some of the less game-threatening (and more YouTube highlight-worthy) bugs fixed, as they were…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit review

It’s Monday, and what better way to start the day than with a crunchy bowl of Honesty covered in ice cold, full fat Admissions of Failure: I have not played much Life Is Strange. I got about fifteen minutes into the first episode, the dialogue started to grate, and I zoned out. Controversial opinion maybe, but if you’re making a game about teenage girls, it…

Life Is Strange 2’s first episode is due out in September

The first episode of Life Is Strange 2 will arrive on September 27. Dontnod's Twitter account has announced the release date, along with a painfully brief teaser displaying only the title and the series length: five episodes. Beyond that, the developers are keeping quiet. For more details we’ll need to wait until August.
