Indeed. Six episodes, or at least, i hope for a 5th episode much longer than the othersYeah, separating the brothers was a good direction for the story to explore, but now I worry there's not enough runway left to make the most out of their relationship. Six episodes would be perfect, and stretching out the cult arc across two episodes could have made it feel like a stronger turning point, instead of just another wacky and dangerous adventure for the Diaz brothers.
All the same, in its best moments this game is peerless. That Life is Strange is the first game series to directly confront Trump-era fears and anxieties makes so much sense.
Upon reflection I have all sorts of problems with Jacob's plotline. He has time to pack gear (and grab your money) and write a cryptic note in your journal while the cops are coming as well as take a gun-shot wound Daniel safely across to Nevada to be left with the evil cult he ran away from? And since Sean was in a coma and the scattered how did his journal even leave an evidence room? It might have made more sense if Jacob had tried to trade Daniel for his sister and then when that failed he hatched a plan to get Karen and Sean there to help him.
Also those who didn't talk to poor Finn missed a decent conversation with a real dumbass.
Thanks! I don't want to replay all episodes, but do want to experience the last episode myself. I can live with random choices, I think.
There might be a mod where you can pick your previous choices if playing on PC, but I havn't looked into it.
I think this is correlated with how reoccurring characters are also very limited. The last episode was filled with one off randos that just came and went. I can’t even name the antagonists of that episode.This one does feel a lot more episodic in the sense that there are no real recurring locations and that's both good and bad. Obviously it's great to have new locations to explore every episode, but I also liked the way the school anchored the story with a kind of slice of life feel in between all the intrigue.
Man, what a relief. I connected way more with Chris than I did with Sean or Daniel .I don't regret getting that ending, because it was a hell of a moment.He does not. Most people who play don't even know he can get hurt! You (and I) got the worst possible ending to chapter 2. No matter what happens in chapter 2 Chris is alive in chapter 3. Our Chris is just a lot more bruised.
Well I know it has taken a long time to come out. I just mean the game itself feels like not much has happened in them/feels short. Maybe because each episode is pretty disconnected/has a different cast and setting. Or maybe it is just me lol. It feels like we have barely gotten to know these characters
Oh, in that case I understand more what you're saying. I think the "road trip" thing allows there to be bigger gaps in the story and cast and whatnot but I get it.Well I know it has taken a long time to come out.
