    For me it was...

    ...finding Rachel's body. I don't remember that many powerful emotional moments in BtS except for Chloe coming across her dad's car at junkyard.

    Yeah, his whole character felt rehashed, like they wanted a dark version of Warren. Didn't really fit the story while making it more formulaic and his action didn't make any sense.



    Since they put a lot of effort into that one, might've as well let us roll instead of it being predetermined. Would make the whole thing 2x better, just like that.



    One of the biggest problems with Before the Storm is how it retroactively fucked up character relationships.

    Show Spoiler
    In the original game Frank was introduced as a "villain" but through the episodes you find out he's not a bad guy (or not, depending how you play it out). In BtS Frank takes a knife for the girls, saves Rachel, Rachel's mom and Chloe (repeatedly) and ends up killing his "friend" to help them. Deck Nine went too far with turning Frank into a hero and fucked up consistency. Chloe's attitude toward Frank in the original should be different then. She probably wouldn't fuck him over and plan to steal his money so she can run away with Rachel even tho she can be pretty selfish


    btw did anyone like the Farewell episode? I was initially looking forward to the return of Ashly and Hannah but I ended up hating everything about it.

    Not it isn't. The story in the prequel is extremely corny and not one that needed to be told.

    In case anyone wants to know: The premise is about an overprotective dad protecting his daughter from her drug addict biological mom and how she copes with that bullshit, also by befriending Chloe. The only reason it was even made is because everyone wanted to know the background story about the macguffin in LiS 1 (Rachel) and it is just lame.

    Frank is a good guy with problems (the antihero) in Before the Storm, but in Life is Strange he is one of the villians.

    I guess the point was not to make any sense.

    The point was if Before the Storm is canon then that would make Chloe a total piece of shit for acting toward Frank that way after everything he's done for her.

    Dude.
    Once again, that's the fucking point, not the flaw. How can you not see this?

    You're basically saying "shit, they took one-dimensional black and white characters from original game and made them characters with depth, showing them as complicated beings, HOW DARE YOU TO DO SUCH A THING???"

    :retarded:

    Frank went from being a helpful good guy, to literally threatening, haunting and stalking Chloe, just because she was mean to him and owed him a bit of cash. lol

    Ever hear of something called maintaining continuity of characters? Apparently not. Then you have the nerve to get severely butthurt, when we point out that it makes no sense.

    Face it, you are just as braindead as the writers of Before the Storm and you will probably be the only moron on the Codex that enjoys lesbian simulator LiS 3 as well.

    Frank's change can be explained away pretty easily. Killing a guy would fuck you up and he lost his girlfriend, not knowing if she left him or something happened to her so naturally he became more withdrawn and angry. But the continuity is still fucked cause Chloe now owes him way more than just the money yet she treats him like trash. That's my main problem.

    Facial animation in that clip is a lot better than what DontNod had been doing.

    The protagonist of LiS 3 looks unrelatable to me. It's not the perfectly engineered retardation that was Mass Effect Andromeda's female Ryder, but bad in a different way I can't quite express. It's like her face has no identifying features.

    The protagonist is a tranny, the "brother" is the same person.

    There, I saved you a bunch of time. You're welcome.

    Is dontnod capable of writing anything besides YA novels? Still can't believe they're trying to push C&C like they'll actually have an effect in this trashfire.

    The trailer isn't too bad, I always expect them to go uber woke, but they actually show some potentially interesting stuff. So far it looks better than LiS 2.

    I remember when I naively thought this might be a good series and installed the first one years ago. I could handle about 20 minutes before the vile combination of lesbianism and autism hit just too hard. The writing is literally 'virgin middle aged socialists imagining adolescent girl dialogue'. Unfuckinbelievable.
