Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
Publisher: Square Enix
Genre: Graphic Adventure
Release Date: October 20th, 2015

I’ve read numerous opinions praising this game’s narrative style over the years, but you know how the eternal backlog struggle goes: so many great games, so little time to play them. I was away on a work trip to a province of Canada with much lower sales tax than my own, and that’s where I picked up a copy of this game for cheap on my way back home. And, dude… am I ever glad I did! Mind = blown (when I finally got around to actually playing it, of course).

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.

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.
