Was there any pay-off for watering the plant? I killed mine on day two.

I think you get a trophy if you can keep it alive for so long.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Finished it today.

I have to say that though it had some neat elements, looked and sounded gorgeous and had genuine heart. It was also pretty well observed as a human drama, with a great eye for environmental detail and atmoshpere. But I can't say that overall I'm a fan.

I found most of each episode just enough on the slow side to annoy, with even apparently tense or urgent situations punctured by long streams of unconvincing dialogue if you decided to talk to someone. The voice acting was on point, but I felt the script really let it down - should have been shorter and less hyper-anxious to shoe-horn in jarring 'youth' phrases at every juncture. Bit of a trudge getting through at times, i thought.

The time travelling was a decent enough plot device, but a pretty naff game mechanic, with it only working in some circumstances and in certain ways that felt a little random and contrived.

And that Episode 5 Dream Sequence I thought was incredibly hackneyed and useless, with a terrible stealth section. I was relieved to get back to normality.

It had some great elements, and I think it felt like a 'sincere' work on behalf of Don'tNod, but i found it a bit of chore. Not trolling, just expressing. I also took the Save Chloe ending, and found it a little underdeveloped compared to The Proper Ending, but also probably a bit more realistically done. I mean why did all of the high school suddenly care about Chloe? Photo montage was pretty sad, mind.

So, this is getting a limited edition boxed version

Pre-ordered. Like, instantly, just now. I downloaded the game for free on my first playthrough so this, especially with a director's commentary and art book for 20 snoops, was sort of a no brainer.

My interview with the game's directors, who reveal there's basically no chance Max or Chloe would return

I am assuming it's going to turn out that David had good intentions all along, but it was still funny seeing him being interrogated and ganged up on by the three ladies. :lol:

I thought the scene the night before ended in a really dumb fashion. I mean they'd behaved stealthily and given the guards the slip, but then got in the truck and left the parking lot making as much noise as possible.

Yeah it's pretty heavy. I loved all of the series, but that's the bit that'll stick with me the longest.

At first I didn't take it seriously; I expected for her to walk away from the scene learning that while she couldn't effect the far flung past in any meaningful way, she could recall new/forgotten details which she could put to use in the present. Basically, I just treated it like a segment I could relax to. To then see her efforts bear fruit left me shocked but happy. Just a shame the elation lasted all of a few moments due to the couple painful blows to the gut which followed.

I enjoyed that game but I think the main plot thing was a bit cliched. All the stuff with the dark room had me groaning.

On the whole I'm okay with clichés, so long as there are other hooks to make up for 'em.

Yeah... I don't think I should have played that last thing at night :fp: Will definitely complete final chapter during daylight hours.

A small spoiler about the last chapter.

It shifts tone into some really weird places.

I should have just carried on playing this into the night :fp: Ended up having dreams of a certain someone standing over me :dread:

Final chapter spoilers.

Well, I know I never want to experience that opening again. Knowing people exist in those situations is bad enough, don't want to ever find myself playing in one.

Was *actually* relieved to see David. :lol: :toot: :toot: :toot:

The game feels so damn slow. The non-linear nature of it is both a blessing and a curse.
