Life Is Strange – Episode 4: Dark Room

Welcome to Part 4 of my Life Is Strange Babblethrough series of posts!

You know that age old advice that says if you find yourself in the past don’t touch anything, else you could change the future in ways you can’t even begin imagine? Yeah. That’s good advice! The plot twists and chills are strong in this one, my friends.

Things on the XIIIth: May 2019

Welcome to my monthly progress post that happens on the 13th, which marks the start of a new fiscal month here on Livid Lightning. Get it? XIII is my favourite number… because I like Final Fantasy XIII a lot? Jeez… tough crowd.

OMG!! This is my 100th post on Livid Lightning. Woot! And almost a full year since I restarted the blogging thing, too. I’m actually quite impressed with myself for not deleting this site yet… I do think my mental health and self-destructive tendencies are under control for good now. I plan to be babbling on the internet for as long as I can game, read, write words, and breathe. Thank you for all the support!

I’m also hella happy spring 2019 decided to show up! Saturdays seem to be rain days (ugh… why not Monday if it MUST rain??), but I’m enjoying the walk to work every morning in daylight AND without a winter coat. Plus my two cats are thrilled it’s warm enough for me to open my apartment windows for them again.

That bird in the tree has no idea how lucky it is…. Another good reason to keep your precious kitties inside! The little furry feline monsters are responsible for the deaths of millions of birds each year.

Intro outta the way and here’s what I’ve been up to this fiscal month. Continue reading Things on the XIIIth: May 2019

Life Is Strange – Episode 3: Chaos Theory

Welcome to Part 3 of my Life Is Strange babblethrough series of posts!

After the end of the last episode, damn, the feels were strong and I was truly hooked on this game. This is definitely the most lighthearted episode, in my opinion, focusing on developing the beautiful BFF bond between Max and Chloe. Max’s powers also get some leveling up… for better or worse.

Life Is Strange – Episode 2: Out of Time

Welcome to Part 2 of my Life Is Strange Babblethrough series! You can check out the first post here if ya missed it and are interested in reading it. Thanks! 🙂

The teenage drama and time manipulation continues. This episode deals with some pretty heavy subject material so reader discretion is certainly advised in addition to the usual spoiler warnings.

Seriously… if you ever feel worthless, hopeless, helpless, and just generally tired of living your life, you are not alone. I know. It’s so hard to reach out for help when you’re in a bad place (like seemingly at the end of your road), but you are a wonderful human being who deserves to fight and live on. Call one of the numbers found here if you are struggling to find the will to keep going. They can help you! You got this life thing.

Life Is Strange – Episode 1: Chrysalis

Welcome to Part 1 of my babblethrough post series for Life Is Strange!

Way back in February of this year, I had the pleasure of playing and Platinuming this game in a single weekend. Such an amazing story delivery… I just couldn’t put it down.

Presently, the writing about games mood has sorta struck me again. Woot! I’ve been working on a review for this game and I noticed my summary section was growing way out of word count control. I figured this special game certainly deserves the proper LightningEllen babblethrough treatment so here we are. This post will cover what I want to remember from Episode 1.

Mission: Finish Fallout 4 in March (Failed)

So, I said I’d do the follow up post to the #MaybeInMarch Mission sometime in April… I wasn’t planning on it being this late in April, but eh, here we go! Ahem.

As the title of this blog post implies, I did not beat Fallout 4 in March (unsurprisingly) BUT I was super happy to see a few bloggers out there contribute to the event. Here are the participant posts that caught my limited attention. If you contributed something and I didn’t catch it, definitely let me know. I’ll remedy that and include a link to your content as well.

And now I shall babble in detail about what I did actually do in Fallout 4 during March. I’m happy to say I’ve platinumed the game last weekend (#AlwaysApril FTW). Yes. My posting timeline is all over the place these days…

Also: HUGE FREAKING SPOILER WARNING for anyone who hasn’t beaten Fallout 4 yet and wants to. You have been warned.
