Life is Strange is a game that wonderfully encapsulates the feeling of isolation one in their formative teenage years can experience. The actual mechanics of the game almost feel like a secondary peripheral to the primary story and characters. As such, those who are staunchly in favor of gameplay significantly overshadowing everything else in the game will find nothing to love in Life is Strange. However, if you can get over that you are playing this game for story, not gameplay, you’ll find a story that has been lovingly crafted in its first episode as well as a mechanic that keeps you interested enough to what to progress with the story.
I probably shouldn’t be buying as many games as I am but there as so many deals right now! This is going to be short because although I bought Chrono Cross, FInal Fantasy VIII, Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3, I haven’t loaded them up yet. Yeah, I know, I probably shouldn’t have bought them but oh well. So yeah, I bought seven more games since last Tuesday or so. I got Chrono Cross on the PS3 via PSN, Final Fantasy VIII, Batman Arkham Origins and Lego Marvel Super Heroes on PC via Steam and Green Man Gaming, and Lego Batman 2, Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 on the 360 via the Games Store.
