Maybe I'm just a big softie at heart, but no game has struck me like Life is Strange. Others have come close for sure, but one of those is Before the Storm, so there's something this series is doing right. It even got me saying hella in real life, which is hella unforgivable. It's nostalgia for a place that you never were, a place that never existed, it's a mix of Donnie Darko and Twin Peaks, a coming of age drama all wrapped up in one.
As the game canonically takes place Monday, October 7th to Friday, October 11th 2013, I felt it'd be a hella great time to replay it in 2019, to see if the game holds up. One episode a day, to follow Max's journey, nice and slow. Time to return to Blackwell and Max, Chloe, Kate, Victoria and even Warren.
I love this intro music, it really helps to set the scene of a idyllic little seaside town.
