    Chloe's back bby!

    Anybody played it yet? Did you like it?

    I personally loved it. I thought it was solid throughout, like "yeah, this is alright" but the last 30 minutes or so hits you like a frickin' dumpster truck. Grade A drama. Super good.

    I started it, but haven't completed it yet due to life drama but so far, so good.

    Is there any timey-wimey or other supernatural elements in it?
    I remember enjoying Life is Strange and for a longest time, I thought it was a telltale game lol.

    Not so far, since you don't play as Max in this one. It's just excellent drama.

    I pre-ordered the deluxe version but I haven't played yet. Part of me wants to wait until all the episodes are released and then do them all at once like with Life is Strange, but I have a feeling I'll cave within the next week or two. I've heard really good things about it.

    Finally getting around to downloading episode 1. With the slow internet here, it won't be ready until much later in the day but in the meantime, I can just eat lunch and work on more of my seemingly endless stream of homework.

    I loved the last 30-ish minutes of this episode. It sucks that now we have to wait a bit before next episode but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    I sadly have not been able to play it myself, so I've resorted to watching YouTube videos of gameplay.

    I've watched YouTubers play the first episode of it. The graphics have slightly changed for the better and the lip syncing of the characters are significantly so much better than the first game. The relationship between Rachel and Chloe is really interesting, and I love how you can approach their relationship romantically or just platonically. However, I do think that approaching it romantically makes more sense than the other. I would love to play the game myself, the back-talk mechanism is pretty cool.

    I haven't been sure how I'll like it, since I always felt like the great thing about Rachel was the cloud of mystery surrounding her, someone that everyone knew but, as Max, you didn't. I am going to check it out though because I really love Chloe and want to see the relationship she had with Rachel.

    Yes, but you've already played the first game and experienced that mystery.

    Honestly, the prequel is just making the first game retroactively better, because the more I play it, the sadder I am over what befell Rachel.

    You make a great point, and I am really loving it now that I've started it so I stand corrected.
