Life is Strange: Episode 1 Chrysalis review

Life is Strange banner

Life is Strange is an episodic adventure by Don’t Not Entertainment, who made their debut with “Remember Me”. Forming a possible tradition for the studio, Life is Strange tries to blend arthouse presentation with storytelling about subjects not normally explored in today’s gaming landscape.

As Max Caulfield, an 18 year old photography student from Oregon, you explore the life of an awkward kid uncomfortable within her own skin around the social pressures of high school. Shuffling through the typical school day, Max bears witness to a traumatic event that exposes that she has the power to rewind time. With this ability, she tries to alter events to make life a bit better for those around her.

Riptide GP 2 review

Riptide GP 2 header

One genre that has been dormant for too long is the arcade water-based racing game. Classics like Hydro Thunder and Wave Race brought great action and the unpredictable nature of the ocean that added a much needed dose of variety to racing games. Vector Unit (who made Hydro Thunder Hurricane on Xbox 360) want to bring that feeling to Xbox One with Riptide GP 2 but it isn’t the smoothest of rides.

Taking control of your first hydro jet, you race through a dozen tracks against the AI as you earn rating stars, cash and XP to upgrade your ride as well as buy new ones. There’s also standard elimination, freestyle and time trial challenges which helps keep the flow of the game’s progression modestly entertaining but there’s nothing original or interesting to hook you.

I'd be interested but isn't this a mobile game upscaled and released for consoles? Is there anything to distinguish from the mobile versions?
Born2beSlicker
I think it's a straight port but it's £3.99 so the price of a quality mobile game anyway.

I don't know, I have never come across it before. It is very playable though. This is a good game in that when you fail you feel it is your fault not the game's. Therefore there is room for improving. I always think that is a good sign.

ITs not a bad game its just a grind. You have to keep replaying tracks to get cash to level up your craft. You cant progress any other way.
Born2beSlicker
Yup, it's a shame. It is passable on a phone as you play a race and switch off. On console, you notice it much more.
Danger Moss
The water based arcade racer has been dormant for too long? I disagree.

Go on.

I'm not a fan of the water based arcade racer.

#IDARB released early for Xbox One, available for free via Games with Gold until the end of February

IDARBingame

#IDARB has been released early for Xbox One, having originally been expected to arrive on Sunday 1 February due to its place in February’s Games with Gold.

The crowdsourced multiplayer action game has come to Xbox One via ID@Xbox, and is described on the Xbox One Store as a “chaotic 8-player eSport jumping future arena ball game”.

Going by their Twitter, that's why its couch vs couch right now. It's getting a netcode update in the future to allow 4 couches to connect.
patrick_bateman
Acheivements are bullshit. Half of them are tied to having kinect. Also its a lagfest online.
Born2beSlicker
I have no idea. It seems like a lot of fun but 1 vs 1 just doesn't do it justice. Oh well, got the 1000GP so until they add proper support, it's done for me. What's the free game in March? :lol: Edit: I asked Reddit, they said the ability for party support (a real game) is coming later but for now it's couch vs couch. That's so dumb.
Danger Moss
Ah ok. Why though? This would be an awesome little game with proper online play.
Born2beSlicker
I think I figured out why IDARB wasn't working. When you log online and you set your controller. I think what it does is set your local players against another group of local players. So if you have a friend over in real life, you will face another 2 people. So we kept getting 1 vs 1 because we're on our own consoles. That's...fucking stupid.

Nice! I'm hoping War Thunder ends up coming to the box too
Born2beSlicker
Warframe is out now. It's an F2P third person action game which has been on PC/PS4 for a while.
It doesn't seem that great, I played the opening mission and was already wanting the characters to shut the hell up. However, it's free so if anybody wants to team up and hack up some robot...things, I'm up for that.

The golf club is apparently pretty badly executed which is unfortunate. Stick it to the man ,unfortunately, is a really bad game so I would avoid that. (Finished it too)

Yeah, to be honest I'm more excited about indie titles at the moment. They're just so much more interesting.

Like I've said before AAA is in trouble. It's market share is shrinking , not because we don't want it or because it can't be done. It's purely because shareholders don't like risks.

I'm not sure if this is something that is just part of the August preview, or if it's available for everyone, but I've just noticed that ID@Xbox now has a tile of its own within the Store, making it easy to find ID@Xbox games.
Tezcatlipoca
Finally! I hope we see more demos. Britxbox - Xbox One now supports unlockable game trials
Lostcauz
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014- ... game-demos
Xbox One's Games Store has had very few demos in the eight or so months it's been on the market, but that's set to change, as Microsoft has recently implemented an update in which game demos will be available in the same capacity that the were and still are on Xbox 360. You'll now be able to trial games for free like you do when sampling an Xbox Live Arcade title, before paying to unlock the full version without having to download the whole thing from scratch. You won't find current games on the Xbox One Games Store available to trial, but future titles will. "When Xbox One launched you could do game demos and you could do games. But we didn't have the functionality that was on Xbox 360 - that 'trial' experience where you could download a demo and then convert it [to a full version]," ID@Xbox boss Chris Charla explained. "But now we do. In the same way that we update the Xbox One OS every month, they update the development system every month - or regularly, anyway. So that's something that we recently turned on. I don't think we've seen any ID@Xbox games yet that have shipped with trials, but we may well in the future. It's something that's open to everybody." Microsoft is also looking to make ID@Xbox games more visible on the Xbox Games Store, with no delineation between what qualifies as a game. "On Xbox One, a game is a game is a game. They won't be segregated in any way at all," says Charla. "Saying that, we have had a lot of player requests for some way to specifically find the ID@Xbox games, so we have talked about adding some functionality so that people can do a search for just the ID@Xbox games," he added. "But anything we did like that would be in addition to our core values which are that they are in the store with everything else." ID@Xbox titles so far include Strike Suit Zero, Super Time Force, Outlast and Sixty Second Shooter Prime. Four ID@Xbox games launched in the space of one week in June, and the number of indie titles set to make their way to Xbox One is set to increase. "You can expect lots more games coming. There are literally hundreds of ID@Xbox games in development right now," Charla noted. "There a lot in development for 2015, and some for 2016, too."
Trials aren't mandatory but I wasn't aware they didn't have a system in place to allow for trials in the first place.
Tezcatlipoca
I bought that last week - I like it :) Only had one short session on it on Friday or Saturday, but it's good fun and quite addictive.
Born2beSlicker
I bought Sixty Second Shooter Prime, it's quite good! Most achievements are easy but getting the high score is frustratingly difficult in the same addictive way Geo Wars was back in the day. Very basic graphics are complimented with a good soundtrack and easy to understand score mechanics. Would recommend buying it, if you like leaderboard climbing.
Tezcatlipoca
I forgot to post this here yesterday: Britxbox - New ID@Xbox releases for Xbox One this week include Another World
Born2beSlicker
Technically yes. It's an old XBLA game that was pulled because the publisher went bust. Now it's self published with this updated release.

Guacamelee is releasing July 2nd
Ready your singlets, Guacamelee! fans. DrinkBox Studios is warming up to unleash its luchador-themed platform-brawler onto new consoles. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is scheduled to launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Wii U™ system from Nintendo, on July 2nd at an SRP of £11.99 / €13.99
Born2beSlicker
Sixty Second Shooter Prime is out now for £3.99. It's a simplistic shmup where you get high scores in 60 seconds. Nothing fancy, nothing new, not Geometry Wars either.
It was originally a PS Mobile game so it should also be on the Vita and I assume the PS4. The only real selling factor is that apparently it gives you 1000GS in less than 10mins. So if you care about achievements, you have your XBO version of Avatar.

Odddworld New n tasty will be out on the XBO before the end of the year.
Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning has confirmed to Eurogamer that New 'n' Tasty is coming to Xbox One later this year. Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, he confirmed that once the PlayStation versions of New 'n' Tasty are done, Oddworld Inhabitants will focus on the Steam version, then the Xbox One and Wii U versions. "We've had some talks and I think we're past it. We're past it in a positive way. As soon as we get our obligations on the PS platforms out, our intention is to get rolling on the Xbox platform and really treat it with the same level of care," he said. "We don't have a release date, but we know it'll be before the end of the year." Does this mean Microsoft has changed its parity clause? "I'm still expecting them to, but I'm not sure how soft or hard they are on it right now, but I know for us they wanted the title on the platform. They were very nice about it. They were very convenient in getting us dev stations," he said. "But the fact is, we were strapped for time and resources, so the parity clause was a challenge. I don't know where it stands officially with Xbox at the moment, but but we've worked it out."

I think the Battlefield brand has been so badly damaged they should have released it as a standalone title rather than a spin off. Does look good but can we really trust EA to release a stable experience at launch?
Born2beSlicker
I can't deny, the multiplayer looks like a lot of fun. Totally something I'm into. Single player could go either way. Everybody is going to be thinking about the pathetic 6 months of Battlefield 4 though. Then add on the first month of BF1943 and BF3...

Yeah, I'm interested, but fuck buying this at launch. I'll wait until the inevitable patches, just in time for a price drop.

I'll probably buy at launch, someone has to. I can't see anyway that BF will get a easy ride in reviews after the BF4 launch so I'll see what comes out of them. It looks great and no doubt, EA will want to get a head start on Cod so potentially another October release.

No, nobody has to. That's the point. EA would hope people like you exist, rather than make sure their game works before asking for money.

I'm not so sure. It's well established and has a dedicated following (particularly on PC) who will buy and play the games regardless. Despite the cluster fuck that was the BF4 launch there's still shit loads of people playing it. Myself included. It's still the best online FPS experience bar none in my book. Anyway this looks great. I hope the SP isn't just generic trash.

It was amazing that the EA CEO apologised for Battlefield 4, calling the launch unacceptable. Then in the same talk detailed DLC they're asking money for. EA was making an effort to improve themselves between 2007-2010. Now though, they're really pathetic.

Great article. I love how it points out how BF now contradicts previous statements by DICE, such as regarding charging or maps or annualising the franchise :lol: :(
DragonBugg
I've systematically bought every BF game because they've all been good. BF4 was a bit of a let-down, but for me I never really got anything game breaking out of it. It was enjoyable, even if it was a little too fast-paced for BF. THIS game, however, I will not buy. As much as I enjoy the gametypes and concept, I really don't like how little this game actually changed. It feels... soulless. Like CoD... This franchise has gone downhill since BC2, though BF3 was still a really good game.

GameSpot - 7/10 Not keen on the time rewind mechanic, as it "diminishes story's impact".

It is a bit weird that a bunch of grown men are writing about intimate experiences they can't relate to. Regardless, I think I'll play this today as its short and cheap.
NighteyesUK
I really liked Remember Me, but they didn't go far enough with the rewind mechanic in that, or use it intelligently enough. I'll wait until all episodes are done before thinking about getting this.
Danger Moss
Yeah remember me was nearly an amazing game. If they'd focused more the rewind mechanic and less on the so so combat it'd have been so much better. There's a trial on Xbox one. First impressions. Rough visuals. Terrible lip syncing.
Born2beSlicker
Did not see the trial,meow loaded that instead. I quite like it. The style, music and presentation are quite cute whilst it seems rather traditional TellTale adventure game without as many choices per decision. The writing is a bit ham fisted, when Max discovers her powers she understands and accepts it immediately. It's a bit odd... (I tagged it in case people want zero knowledge of any events.) Seems like it could unfold into something rather interesting though. The £3.99 tag makes it very attractive.

Just finished episode 1. I'm still kinda on the fence with it. Some of the dialogue is really bad. Some of the characters are horrible cookie cutter stereo types lifted from a million other teen dramas. The time travel mechanic feels out of place. I dunno.
Harry
Just did the trial. It's weird seeing this mix bag of quality. I expect more from the voice acting. I think the teacher has put me off completely, he's such a prick! I think the story is kinda interesting though. I like where the rewind mechanic is going and I would like to support this kinda game. It just feels a bit poncey and not as genuine as a Telltale game.
Born2beSlicker
I think that's because it's a French game. We're so used to American/British/Japanese style games that a lot of European/Eastern games try to bend to that style of presentation to reduce alienation. This game feels very much like a French arthouse film in game form, so our lack of familiarity brings a slight recoil to it.
kelticdave
I don't think its a french arthouse film its the opposite of that. Its trying so hard to be art and the recoil comes from people noticing that. From everything I've watch of it on twitch from the voice acting to just the general design of the game its wanting to be something its not. Its a game conflicted with trying to be more than just a fun little time travel game. You either come from a position where expressing a story like this comes to you easy and that the finished product really is something artistic or in my opinion you get this everything feels forced to fit into that box.
Danger Moss
Yup what Dave said. My recoil is caused by plain bad writing and voice acting. This game is at it's best when it lets you explore and search through rooms your not supposed to be in looking through people's belongings. You gain far more insight into the world and characters that way.
Tezcatlipoca
At the EGX presentation, the guy from Square kept hammering on about it being indie. This is indie, that is indie, indie feel, indie vibe, indie music, Sundance, indie, indie, indie...
Born2beSlicker
Born2beSlicker
If you're like me and enjoy the music in this game, the soundtrack is on Spotify. Finished episode 1. It has its problems for sure but I did like it a lot. There's a lot of heart that made me engrossed, despite the "hip" teen slang making me cringe at times. I'm a bit pressed for time but I will try to write a review/article on it tomorrow or this week coming.
Born2beSlicker
My review I made myself late for my train to get this up and I think later episodes will be better written (by me) but I like the game a lot, despite its problems.
kelticdave
still think you're wrong on people not able to relate and rather its trying so hard to be art that the recoil is simply from people noticing how hard they want it to be art. But hey :P opinion ;) LOOK AT ME I'M ART I'M SO ARTY LOOK AT ALL THE ARTY THINGS I'M DOING!!!! LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME!!!!!! :lol:
