Life Is Strange: Before The Storm

Postby Deathclaw_Puncher » Mon Jun 12, 2017 2:26 am

On top of a second season, LiS is getting a prequel, focusing on Chloe's relationship with Rachel. It will be developed by Deck Nine Games, and in place of Ashly Burch, Chloe will be voiced by Rhianna Devries.

So, I'm only up to the point where you arrive at Blackwell, but it's looking good so far. Rhianna Devries actually makes an awesome Chloe, the Backtalk ability is fun AF, and David is a lot less of an asshole. Also, I'm liking the graffiti feature. Chloe writes the game's quest objections on her hand. Chloe even has her own Warren, a theater geek named Elliot. Fuck you, Elliot, I'm all about that Amberprice!

Also, this.

I plan on finishing the first Life Is Strange tonight, so I'm moving on to this quite soon. Strangely, what's on my mind is how much I like Chloe's voice actor and how much the new actor compares.

Dear Vagina-Haver,
I would prefer it if you ceased your writing career, and instead focused on suicide.

I remember feeling hooked and emotionally invested quite early through Episode 1 of LiS. It took a little longer for BtS, but it was well worth sticking it out. Things really picked up in Episode 2 with Episode 3, despite dividing a lot of fans, really tugging at my heartstrings. Chloe was already a complex character in LiS but this really built more upon her, and even made her more likeable. Rhianna DeVries grew on me as her VA.

And my excitement when I heard the familiar intro to "Bros" by Wolf Alice start playing during the ending montage, which I found both wholly satisfying and gutwrenching.

EDIT: and now I'm listening to a bit of punk rock again.

Truth.

I found Rachel to be a manipulative jerk and we all learn how much she kept from Chloe in LiS. But after earning her trust and with the risk she finds out the truth anyway if I try to protect her, I didn't want to jeopardise the friendship.


And holy shit yes, the post-credits scene. That's one thing that makes the ending so bittersweet (or should that be gut-wrenching-sweet?).

I went with

Lie
Because Rachel is a cinnamon roll and it fits with Chloe's Character development. Plus, I figured that

Rachel finding out the truth plays a big factor into her cheating on Chloe with Frank and Jefferson
.

Also, the dialogue is cute.

Ye gods, I could not stand Rachel.

I'll defend Chloe -- myopic, hypocritical, bitchy, pre-character-development Chloe -- till the end of my days, but it seems like they set out to make Rachel embody every one of main-game Chloe's character flaws with very little of her complexity, few redeeming characteristics, and an extra dose of manipulativeness (made all the worse by knowing about the secrets she kept from Chloe from the main game). And I found her reasons for her actions extraordinarily petty, especially in comparison to everything Chloe was going through and would be cosmically ordained to go through later.

Plus the whole forest fire thing. That was a thing that happened.

Spoiler: show
I mean, she didn't deserve to die horribly by a long shot, but there's a serious problem when I end up liking Victoria more than the character Chloe's whole character motivation centers around for most of the plot.

Also, since this conversation I'm jumping into has turned to it -- Truth, if only because my strong belief in not keeping intense personal revelations secret overrode my immense frustration.

I'd rather pretend that Dontnod/Deck9's stories are fanfictions and the happier endings we come up with are the real ones.
