Life is Strange: Episode Five | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! And welcome to GamePlay!!!! *explosion! …. everything is cooler in my mind Today we are doing Life is Strange: Episode Five!

Screen-Shot-2015-11-30-at-8.58.31-PM

So I just finished Polarized and GODDAMN I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY! If you don’t know I have been doing a gameplay from every episode of Life is Strange and I have done for Episode OneEpisode Two, Episode Three, and Episode Four so check those out if you want. But check them out because I have a lot of fun writing them. I talked about how this episode was going to an emotional roller coster and it was because SO MUCH HAPPENED AND I DON’T KNOW I FEEL ABOUT IT! The last episode end with Chloe getting shot and Max getting drugging by Mr. Jefferson. So a lot happened and more stuff happened in this episode because shit. Okay so we start with Max waking up in the Dark Room and Victoria is there. It took me a while before I figure out what I needed to do because I got Max’s foot out and then brought the car over but I didn’t really see that you had to focus on the picture so it took me a minute.

Then I went back in time where Jefferson was being a creep and taking pictures of Max. My whole family was in the room while I was playing this scene and they kept yelling that it was really really creepy because he is so fucking creepy in this episode and I hated it! After that we return to present times and there is another picture on the table which I still don’t understand how that worked but either way I went back in time. Okay there is so much going back in time in this episode and it is kind of ridiculous. I know it is important to the story but Max going back in time hasn’t done any good for you why you continue to do it! She does and she and Jefferson talk and it turns out that Jefferson was like Nathan mentor of sorts in like a serial killer way. Nathan did kill Rachel but it was an accident because he gave her too big of a dose and she died. Either way Nathan wasn’t the big bad that the first couple episodes made him out to be.

After that whole thing Jefferson I get him to put Max’s journal in front and I time travel again. So that I enter the contest and I tell David about everything with Jefferson. Then I win the contest thing and I go to San Fransisco. Everything is going good but Max keeps getting nosebleeds because time travel is fucking everything up and then Chloe calls and the storm is happening and she is gonna die. So Max goes back in time again *i know she time travels a lot and rips up her picture for the contest and then Max is back in Jefferson’s creepy ass room. She doesn’t understand why she is back there and I’m like ‘Girl how can you do not understand!’. Also we learn that creepy as Jefferson has killed Victoria because he is just an asshole. Jefferson is gonna drug Max but then David comes in and saves me and then I tell him that Chloe is dead and he kills Jefferson. Maybe that was a bad decision but like Jefferson was like a total creepy so like I don’t feel bad. Max decides to go back in time again by using the picture that Warren and her took in the last episode. So everything is going to shit and Max still doesn’t understand that going back in time has some affects.

She goes through the town that is being destroy and I save some people because I’m amazing and wonderful. Then I go and get the picture from Warren and then you know I decided to kiss him because the boy just does so much for Max and he deserves this. He needed that because you know he was gonna die so I gave him that. Plus I like him. He is a good guy. After that Max goes back in time (again) and tells Chloe everything that has happened over the last of hours and it only took two times to get her to believe everything I was saying! So I basically mastered this game! If I replay it then I would master it. Kind of. I wouldn’t fail through. That’s the point. After that Max wakes up and she and Chloe are hiking a mountain in the rain *because that’s a smart idea and then my least favorite part kind of happened because Max passes out and the rest of the game is a weird ass dream sequence. First we are in a class room but it is different and then you walk out of the classroom and it’s a scene from the first episode but completely backwards and it freaked me out.

Then after that there is this thing where you are in a hallway and there is a lot Jeffersons walking around and you can’t get caught and it was so hard! It took a million different times to get it right and then you are in the school and that was pretty easy because I just walked right through it and then there was like a thing in a junk yard which was hard as fuck and once again took a million years. After that I basically just walk through a memory thing where Max remembers all the moments she has with Chloe and it is really sweet. So after that Max wakes up and finally realize the fact that going back in time over and over again is why all this shit is happening and I can’t believe it took five episodes for her to realize that. Then I get the final decision of the game which is I have to decide where I want to kill Chloe or kill the town. And I screamed this came onto the scream because I couldn’t believe what was happening. I spent the whole goddamn game trying to save Chloe and now the game was telling that all of the decision that I made didn’t really matter because this was the only that did. I ended up saving Chloe because I had spent the whole game saving her and I wasn’t going to let that go to waste and then the game ends with the town dying.

Despite all the time travel and weird dream sequences I enjoyed this episode. It wasn’t like my favorite thing ever and I enjoyed the other ones more but it was still really really good. With the ending I think that maybe I should have chosen the town because I don’t know. I think that either way the ending is bittersweet. I might replay and see what happens with I do other stuff or if I pick the town over Chloe. I was disappointed that I didn’t get to see Chloe and Max kiss because I thought that I would but I didn’t. Overall Life is Strange is a great game and I’m excited for what comes next with season two and everything. It is a game that I would very much recommend to everyone.

Life is Strange: Episode Four | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! And welcome to GamePlay!!!! *explosion! …. everything is cooler in my mind Today we are doing Life is Strange: Episode Four!

2015-07-28_00003

Hey friends! So it has been a while since I did a Life is Strange post. The last time I think I did one was at the end of last year because I finished playing episode three on Halloween because I don’t have a life. And then I moved and other funs stuff and the playstation keeps moving around my house and someone is playing so I finally got some time to myself and I was able to play episode four! Which unlike the last one a lot of stuff happened. The last episode was mainly like character stuff but this time the story was really intense and moving forward. I think it is because I’m almost done with the game so that means shit is going to go done in Episode Five which I knew already because it is the final episode and everything just keeps getting worse. Also I finally got the pictures this time around because I finally learned by lesson!

So if you don’t remember what happened last time at the end of Episode Three Max decides to go back in time and fix everything with Chloe’s dad and she returns to a future  where Chloe is in a wheelchair and her parents are alive but they are having a lot of money problems because of her health. Max and Chloe are hanging out and then Chloe tells Max that she in a lot of pain and I knew where this was going because I’ve seen it happen on TV before. She asks Max to put her to sleep and I wanted to scream ‘HAVE YOU SEEN ME PLAY THIS GAME? I CAN NOT BE TRUSTED TO DO THIS!’ and I like tried to play it like I don’t know if I can do this but then she was like I’m in pain and then I only got two choices and I didn’t want to do it so I just decided to do it because if I pick don’t do it then I know that it’s the wrong choice because all I do is make the wrong choice in this game.

After that happened Max went back and changed the past again so that everything was back to normal. We have to go through the house and there is a bird that I saved because if I learned anything from Until Dawn ALWAYS SAVE THE ANIMALS! Also it the end of playing Episode Four I remembered that there was a page that shows you all of the choices you make and it tells that percentage that comes from your decision and I made almost all of them right! I think. It is so hard to tell in this game. I feel like everything is gonna figure itself out in the next chapter because shit is gonna go done! I found a bunch of stuff about Chloe’s stepdad and Nathan then you go and meet Kate who is okay! Because remember I saved her! Because I did something right in this! WHOA! Okay so after I talk to Kate I go to school and I didn’t really know what to do so I just talked to a lot of people until I was able to move on which took ever and I don’t really like talking to randos because I just want to do other stuff. This will probably come to bite me in the ass but like I don’t care.

I left Warren a note on his locker and I feel bad because I know in the end Max will probably in end up with Chloe so I’m just leading him on but I just want everyone to have a good time! Anyway I go into Nathan’s room and then I leave and then Nathan shows up and Warren picks a fight with him and I stopped it because boy doesn’t need to become a murder okay? He is too nice! Then we go to see Frank who still hasn’t gotten over the fact that I accidentally pressed the wrong button and almost shot me. So while this scene was going down I was making tea for me and my sister and then the top of the honey container came off and honey got everywhere so I was busy trying to clean that up which was a nightmare. Then I turn my head to see Chloe shooting Frank and his dog!   Luckily I turned back time and I fixed everything because I’m amazing at life! For now anyways. Frank and I become friends and it’s all good.

After that we head back to Chloe’s room and I have to figure out these clues and it was very hard because you can’t read any of the pieces of paper so I was kind of just clicking stuff and hoping that it worked and Max would always remind that I’m doing things wrong. It was hard and boring and I didn’t like it. So after that we go to a barn that is owned by Nathan’s family and we discover some creepy shit there let me tell you. So I find this trap door and it is basically a torture lab. Reality and there are files of girls from Max’s class and then we find Rachel and she is dead. We find her body and it is a really hard scene because Chloe is all upset and she is screaming that she loved Rachel which I knew because she spend a lot of time talking about her. It’s just very very sad. Also this episode had a lot of cut scenes and they all seemed to last forever! I would have been fine with cut scenes but I just wanted to see where the story was going.

We then go to the party that everyone is going to which is being held by all the rich kids who I guess I was supposed to talk to so that I could go in and talk Victoria but I ended up just doing my own thing which was pushing the lane thing out of the way and people got mad but I ended up just rewinding time and I got to the VIP. I warned Victoria that Nathan is shady and she believed because I’m amazing! So we then go back to Junkyard because Nathan wasn’t there and Chloe really wants to beat him up. And then the ending happens! Max gets injected with something and then Chloe gets shot and I tried to rewind but I couldn’t. It wouldn’t work! Why wouldn’t it work! And then Max looks and see her teacher! WHAT! I KNEW HE WAS GONNA BE SHADY!

And that was Life is Strange Episode Four. A lot happened and shit is 100% going down in the next episode which I’m very exciting to play. But I’m also very very scared. The next post will probably just be me screaming. I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

Life is Strange: Episode Three | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! And welcome to GamePlay!!!! *explosion! …. everything is cooler in my mind Today we are doing Life is Strange: Episode Three!

maxresdefault

I have done a gameplay of Episode One and I have a Gameplay for Episode Two so check those out if you want. I finished this on Halloween because you know I have no life and I started and complete it and the way this one end!!!!! Holy Crap! I mean I knew something bad would happen because when it comes to time travel and changing the past there are always negative. Before we get to that through let’s start from the beginning. We began with it being dark outside and Max wakes up. We walk through the hallways and someone shouted Max and I didn’t do anything about it. I just continued walking. Probably in the next episode it will somehow come into play and fuck everything up because that’s just how things work for me. We met with Chloe outside the school and the Victoria bitch is talking mean stuff about Max and she is really getting on my nerves! I TRIED TO BE NICE IN THAT FIRST EPISODE BUT THIS BITCH DOESN’T KNOW WHAT BEING NICE IS! If someone throw a trash garage worth of nicest at her she wouldn’t even know!

Also I only missed like two pictures this time, usually I miss like five or most of them because I’m at bad this game. We go into the school and try to break into the principle’s office and Max just decides that she should get some explosives and blow up the door! Because that’s an idea. It took me about million rewinds to figure what to do next because the door was on fire and the alarms are going off and I had no clue what to do next. I went to the door but it wouldn’t open. About five minutes and a million tries later, I finally realized that I was at the wrong door and that’s why it wouldn’t open.

Facepalm.gif

Yep. Sometimes I wonder why I failed Until Dawn then I remember all the mistakes I’ve made in games and it’s like a slap in the face. I got like a million files on characters which took longer then it should have. Chloe finds money and I said that we shouldn’t take some the money because stealing is wrong people! Again it will probably come into play later and fuck me over LIKE EVERYTHING DOES. We decide to go to the pool because when being rebellious you have to break into the pool it’s like a rule. They talk for a while it was super cute and sweet but then we got interrupted be the stupid cops ruining the nice moment they were having. We have to hide from them and again I had a much harder time doing this then I probably should have. I kept getting caught by the guard and it was so annoying. After that we went to Chloe’s house and they talked for while which was nice and I kissed Chloe. That should be something that will be an affect in the future but hopefully for the better.

Max puts on Rachel’s clothes which everyone loses their shit over. Like every person I talked to was like you look like Rachel and why are you such a wannabe and I was like shut up! One of the tasks I had was trying to steal this creepy guys name Frank’s key so I could get into his car and it was really annoying. I didn’t know what to do. I had to talk to Frank and then that other annoying kid who had the gun at Chloe in the first episode which I can’t remember his name and some cop. It took forever! When I finally got the keys after stealing them from Frank and we stuck into the car. I told some lady about the future because why not? It’s going to happen and she needs to be prepared!!!!! We discover so interesting stuff about Rachel which makes Max and Chloe fight which was no surprised I knew it was coming, They had to fight at some point in time. What I didn’t see coming was the end!

SO Max has this picture of her and Chloe when they were younger and then suddenly she is taken back in time to the day Chloe’s dad died. Suddenly Max is like I can save him and I’m like girl this is dumb! Haven’t you ever seen Doctor Who? Do you know what can happen when you do stuff like this? But she does it any way. Then we come back to present day time and Max is friends with Victoria that bitch and Warren is dating someone else. Then we go to Chloe’s house and her dad is alive but she is a wheelchair!!! I said that time travel has consequences but no one listens to me when I scream at the screen!

I enjoyed this episode I think the ending was my favorite part as this episode was really nothing but moments and getting to be with the characters more. Even though I suck at action but it’s  a lot of fun. I’m interested to see what happens next because it seems like it is going to be crazy!

Life is Strange: Episode Two | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a gameplay of the second episode of Life is Strange!

*again I have no clue if i should tag spoilers

life-is-strange-2

I did a GamePlay for the first episode which you can read here. I have done episode two and I’m very much enjoying this game it’s so much fun. Again I still have no clue if I’m making the correct decision. Like the girl named Kate is getting bullied for a video that was posted online and it has her kissing a lot of people and I told her to go to the police and then told her that I couldn’t help with that and then you know my favorite butterfly affect symbol shows up and reminds me that I could just have fucked everything up in the future for everyone. At first I was like okay that’s there and I was starting to get used to that fact but then literally all the effects for my decisions started happening. I didn’t answer Kate’s phone because Chloe suddenly got very bitchy with me and I was too busy focusing on her and then later when Kate is trying to commit suicide, she brings up that she was upset that I didn’t answer.

But you know what I saved her! IGN said I probably wasn’t going to save but I did! Yeah I knew all the right things to say. I think that was probably the only right thing I did in the game like in the first episode when the principle was talking to me and I first told him about Nathan and he didn’t believe so I rewinded and changed the thing so that he didn’t know. When Nathan and Max were in the the principle’s office and I was like Nathan uploaded the video and he was waving a gun around yesterday in the bathroom and then the principle is like hey you never mentioned this when we talked and it’s like shit I forgot I changed that. Luckily I still got everyone to side with me so it started out hard and bad but we got it this, I got this. I’m saying this but my next post will mostly likely me  typing in caps ‘I FUCKED EVERYTHING UP’.

I did have some hard times like Chloe gets her feet stuck in the railroads because teens are rebellious and you know they have to be around railroads. She gets stuck and it took me like a million years to figure out how to save her and she just kept dying and dying and I kept having to go back in time. Max can’t run very fast through which I found annoying unless there is a run button and I just have no clue where it is. It was so annoying with Chloe just crying at me and me not being able to run and hurry things up. Chloe was kind of crazy in this episode with like her making me test all Max’s powers and it’s starting to hurt Max and she just kept making her do it. Then the guns come out which I should have expected because teens with powers also seem to want and test things with guns. The bottle researching was fun because I learned more about Chloe and Rachel and I 100% believe that she is using Max to replace Rachel which I don’t like.

Victoria is a bitch she is in like 2% of this episode and I could not stand her. I was like want happened to make you such an awful person. Her and Nathan were just hanging out by my desk and she’s like oh my gosh she thought we were going to be friends and I just wanted to scream ‘Not true! I was just trying to be a better person than you! With this thing called nicest!’ Unfortunately this a video so I can’t scream that and have her hear me. Also this teacher I don’t like him because he seems like a creep and he keeps calling out my name in class for me to enter this thing and clearly he doesn’t understand this thing called she’s a woman and can make her own decision. So we are leading up to Max’s powers and the effects of her using them having an effect on the world and her which I thought was interesting. I kind of expect the whole the world might fall part with the snow in the summer and the eclipse for no reason.

And I think that’s all I have for this part! Look out for part three which I hope will come faster then this part came out so! I recommend this game to guys and if you enjoy time travel and another games that make you question everything. I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links. I posted rants like this once a week every week. Look out for more reviews and other random posts.

Life is Strange: Episode One | Gameplay

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a gameplay of the first episode of Life is Strange!

*should I tag spoilers because I talk about a lot of things that happen in this game. if you don’t want to know about the game and the choices you’ll have to do then don’t read this. 

lifeisstrangeep1

So I’m doing another Gameplay even though no one really likes these posts but you know what I’m playing this game, I just finished episode one and I want to talk about it so you know what just deal with it. Okay so this is a video game that follows girl named Max who goes to an art school and after seeing a guy named Nathan shoot a girl, she discovers that she has the power to rewind time. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again I’m not very good at video games. Like I always make the wrong choices and I panic and mess things up. But I’ve played like two video games before I played this one *that i have reviewed here and here and I’ve had a little more experience with playing on the Play Station Four so I was prepared! Sort! *not really

I didn’t really know much about this game. With Alien: Isolation and Until Dawn, I knew about those games because I had watched Markiplier and he had played them but with this game I didn’t really anything. My dad just came home and gave it to me and I read the back but then I didn’t touch for like a week. I like that didn’t really know anything about it because when everything was happening I was like SURPRISE! Also side note if you’re wondering what happen to part three of Until Dawn, I finished the game and then I restarted it because I wasn’t happy with how it ended. I meant to write part three but then I started forgetting everything that had happened so right now I’m just gonna finish replaying and then do part three. Okay so the first sign of trouble in this game was when I start the game and the words ‘your actions have will have an effect on what happens’ pop up and I’m NO! Not a butterfly effect game!

screaming.gif

Until Dawn was a butterfly effect game and I failed that so hard like I made all the wrong choices and only four people out of nine or ten characters survived. And I like I said before I make all the wrong choices or I miss things that can help me or I panic do the wrong thing! The plus side to this is that Max’s powers allow you to go back in time and change your decisions but the down side to that is that her powers can only go back so far that you have to go back at that moment or else you’re stuck. I have no idea which choice is the right choice. Whenever I pick a choice I feel confident but then the butterfly or rewind thing in the corner will go off and make noise and will be ‘go back and fix that’ or the very threatening ‘THIS ACTION WILL HAVE CONSEQUENCES!’ and then I’m like did I make the right choice because I have no clue what this game whats from me!

You can also take pictures of different things in this which I enjoy but I’ve missed a lot of things that you can take pictures of so I really hope that doesn’t come back and bit me later or else I’ll cry and cry and cry. Also you can talk to people and they can ask you things and I didn’t really do that. I talked a teacher at one point and signed a thing where the weird guard wants to put cameras everywhere and then ‘wonderful’ this action will have consequences pop up! It makes me question everything! I also stopped a football from hitting a girl on the head so that was nice. It took me like five years to figure out how to tamper with the paint to spill on the mean girl Victoria who I was then nice to because my goal is always the same which it is……….

LET’S ALL BE FRIENDS!

I was nice and we got along for like for a couple seconds. Later I got a text saying that we weren’t friends and I was a little hurt if I’m being honest. Let’s talk about that asshole Nathan like this kid has issues and I think he is on like hardcore drugs and I think he’s insane or like borderline insane either way he’s insane and he shoot girl and he beat up that cool kid Warren I think that’s his name who had nothing to do with it. Also the girl who got shot was Max’s old best friend, Chloe, which I was surprise that it was her but not really because she kept talking about her so I was like she is probably important and she was!!!!

I’m very curious on what’s happening in this universe as the episode ends with it snowing and when the story takes place it’s summer I think. I bet you that we are going to be solving the mystery of what happened to the missing girl whose name I’ve already forgotten but then something is going to happen with Max’s powers which causes things to go wrong and it causes the storm that she keeps having dreams about because if I know anything about time travel, it’s that changing the past will have an negative on the future. That’s my theory right now it could change as the game goes on but right now I think I’ll stick with that.

This game is great and besides the paranoid feel that I have every time I make a goddamn decision, I’m very much joying playing this game. I have four chapters left and I will be doing post like this one where I just talk about them and how I make bad choices. I recommend this game to guys and if you enjoy time travel and another games that make you question everything. I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way.
