First episode of this wasn't too bad...nice art style, and voice acting. Framerate a bit suspect at times.

I do think it's a bit bs having episode 1 as a ps plus game this month though...it's become standard to offer the first episode of these kinda episodic game selling structures for free anyway - a quick look on ps store can tell you that's still the case. Sony's offers on ps4 plus have been a bit of a joke for the majority this year really.

difference being episode 1 of this is about the same length as almost 4 episodes of a telltales game. plus if you waited on episode 1, i'd imagine in a few months episode 2 will be on PS+ too.

Telltale doesn't even follow this model anymore.

They do on console...borderlands, game of thrones, walking dead, wolf amongst us...all have/had first episodes free. Borderlands and game of thrones are Telltale's latest games are they not?

Ah.. they stopped doing the freebies on Steam. I think The Wolf Among Us was the last one. Kinda reminds me of the shareware model.

These games aren't all exactly equal in terms of quality or content anyway. Life Is Strange isn't free on consoles either, so I guess it's more of a Telltale thing. My biggest problem with King's Quest is that there's exclusive content to the bundled edition. That makes sampling the first chapter for $9.99 a bit of a shitty deal.

heh life is strange has the first episode free too...that's why I say it's pretty standard model for episodic. But yeah, amount of content may differ from one to the next...content rarely has a standing on quality though

Eitherway, feels like a bit of a cop out having it one of the two plus games over christmas

Nope.. it's actually a demo. You play the opening scenes of episode 1. At least, that's what the listing says on the PS Store, and the first episode is still available for $4.99.

nah think I have the first full episode in my library. Will have to give it a check.

Download the free trial and access to the opening scenes of Life is Strange Episode 1.

It was probably a temporary offer.

I definitely want to get this game, cause i love the genre. Can the game actually be compared to Telltale's games and Life is Strange?

Better than telltale's I think...more polished, and flows better...less broken animation. That telltale engine really needs to change now...especially for consoles which has never handled it great.

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (7 Hours ago)
