Played up to the fallout shelter. There's a serious Girl With the Dragon Tattoo vibe going on in here. Creepy. :dread:

Okay, done with episode 4.

Mr Jefferson, how could you?

Big choices:

Didn't kill Chloe. I think this was the most affecting part of the game so far, that whole scene I was praying it wouldn't go that direction.
Stopped Warren from battering Nathan.
Frank got stabbed in the leg. I couldn't work out how to avoid him getting hurt, but at least we didn't kill him. :shifty:
Warned Victoria and she believed me.


Small choices:

There was a blue jay?
There was a bird's nest?
Crowbarred my way into the locker.
Daniel is a party animal.
No message for Warren.
Helped Alyssa though.


Like Hexx, I kinda wish just ringing the police was an option though.

Also this is the first instance I can recall of a game offering to hook me up with a local support group if I've been affected by any of the issues covered in it. :dread: Probably good that they bring that up though.

So much rewind. Did you make fun of Victoria in the first episode? I did and I couldn't get her to believe me in this one.

Just finished episode 4. Great stuff but the ending didn't bother me as much as you'd expect. I mean, yeah, it's a big shock but in a game where you can time travel I feel like it'll be rewound for a happy ending.

Definitely intrigued to see how it turns out though.

Part of me is thinking it'll end up with the first blue butterfly photo being used as a warp point to bring everything round full circle with a big thump of a reset button.

EDIT - Actually, using Warren's photo would make waaay more sense.

Yeah, Warren's photo was my first thought.

WHOLE EPISODE THOUGHTS:

dat hospital bit with Kate :( :wub: I hope Max ends up with her instead of Chloe.

Had to rewind the Frank conversation once, because the conversation choices weren't quite as well worded as they should have been. I took "Rachael's Bracelet" to mean "Hey Frank, you're always wearing Rachael's bracelet so I know you still care about her so help us out dawg", whereas Max took it as "strawberry floating HELL FRANK YOU'VE GOT HER BRACELET YOU'RE HIDING SOMETHING TELL USSSS" :|

The Dark Room bit :dread: All dem pictures nope nope nope.

Choices: Saved Alyssa and the bird, warned Victoria 8-) (although I still got the bit at the end with someone pleading from the Dark Room...)

Can't believe some jackass on tumblr spoiled the (rather predictable) ending by changing the name of their blog to "Jefferson Hate Blog". I'd already blocked all their Life is Strange posts, then they go and do that. Absolute buffoon.

No I didn't. I wanted to but thought it might be important to try and get onside with her.

I'm liking this more now Chloe is becoming less of an ass

Bit annoyed they seem to keep putting things in for drama though. Max losing her
Time Rewind when Kate is trying to commit suicide is never brought up again and only there to make some tension.

Also, going to the alternate timeline was ultimately for nothing. At this point, at least. I hope the last episode uses both of these points as a plot point because otherwise they were there just for drama


Also, not taking a single picture of the bunker? What are you even doing Max, god damn



At least the detective bit where you had to put all your clues together was fun

I just started this on Friday and have already gone through all four episodes.
I was expecting this to just be an appetiser before I start Until Dawn, but actually there is a lot of meat to the game and I'll be happy if Until Dawn is as good as this.

Episode 4 spoilers:
I did not see that being Jefferson at the end, it was a complete shock!
I saw the same whiskey bottle in the bunker as was in the principal's office, so I was sure that it was going to be the principal who was involved, I guess that was just a red herring.

I'm glad the alternate timeline didn't last too long, otherwise all of the choices made before that would have meant nothing. It was a nice little side story that served it's purpose.


My big choices so far:
Episode 1:
- I reported Nathan to the Principal - He had a gun in school!
- I comforted Victoria after I dropped paint on her.
- I intervened when David was harassing Kate.
- Later jumped out of the closet and took the blame for the joint.

Episode 2:
- Told Kate not to go to the police - Nathan's family own the police so thought it best to get proof first.
- Answered Kate's call.
- Tried to shoot Frank.
- Saved Kate.
- Reported Nathan.

Episode 3:
- Stole the money.
- Kissed Kate.
- Took Chloe's side in the family argument.
- Didn't hurt the dog at the RV.
- Chloe has the gun.

Episode 4:
- Killed Chloe. First I said "I don't know", but then she talked me into it :shifty:
- Stopped Warren from attacking Nathan too much.
- Resolved the Frank situation without anyone getting hurt (after much rewinding!)
- Warned Victoria and she believed me.

I just completed episode 3.

gooseberry fool just got real unreal. :shock:

The problem I can see with the latest twist is that it makes a lot of the plot and character development of the previous episodes redundant as it just all got erased from existence. I can only surmise that at some point, on more and more bad gooseberry fool mounting up, Max concludes that she strawberry floated up and has to go back and watch William walk out to his death.

Just finished episode 4 which had me jabbing at the screen yelling "I strawberry floating knew it!" Apparently I was one of only 7% (on PC) to blame Jefferson for Kate's suicide attempt. I strawberry floating knew it was him from the off, something was subtly wrong about him the whole time.

Anyway, Ep 4 was amazing. The start with ParaChloe was so, so sad and genuinely affecting. I chose to euthanise her because, strawberry float, I think that's what I'd do in real life. The rest of the ep didn't let up either, requiring some genuine detective work and conversational wrangling. I became bessie mates with Frank despite not paying him off, but went ballistic at Victoria when she got all prissy again. She didn't believe me about the Dark Room but strawberry float it, who gives a shite about her anyway.

I really, really hope Chloe isn't RIPing in Peace. Her alter-ego did so much to expand her character beyond the oftentimes annoying s8ter grrl from the early eps.

No, I comforted her and was nice to her throughout. But after I got Jefferson kicked off the Everyday Heroes trip (suck it Mark) she turned hostile again and started sending me threatening messages.
