Writing gaming news life becomes increasingly difficult with so much episodic content released lately, but there’s still time to give a write-up of DON’TNOD Entertainment’s recent Life is Strange – Episode 2 release.
With three more episodes to go and me having to play Episode 1 as well, skipping the first “previously on…” part of the trailer was a no-brainer. But wow, am I excited now. Who cares about point-and-click mechanics, genre definitions, if this looks as great as a high-school drama sci-fi thriller mix, reminiscent of Donnie Darko with time travel mechanics?
Being a sucker for anything teen comedy/drama/horror related, the trailer just blew me away with some great music and its cinematic camera angles. The animations might not be the best the industry has to offer (also in comparison to publisher Square Enix’ Final Fantasy CGI), but it still looks pretty enough with believable character animations and details in the background.
The game is out now for all console platforms (except Nintendo, but oh well, different story).

Even with this simple review of yours is interesting!
Thanks, I’m glad you like it. I wasn’t sure if these games releases news aren’t a bit too shallow or out of place, especially since the game’s out for two days or so. But I don’t find the time at the moment to write longer articles ;). Still, more to come, and some reviews. I hope to do one when the season is finished or I’ve had time to play half of it…
Actually you can mix short and long review on your blogs. Writing short scheduled reviews aiming for quantity and also long ones for quality. If you got the right formula your blog can post any day anytime without having a blank in your presence or you seems to be more active. But this is just my own opinion.
You can also get the audience to be involved by vote or questions. Oh I also love old games and they don’t always have to be new ones. Zelda, FFVII, FFVIII, many old games are still glorious in my opinion.
You can also use some shorter posts to make your blog looks active by asking about ….. (What do you think about Zelda?) and then write your own opinions about the game. If you have played the game I bet the review won’t be enough for a page reading lol
Or you can separate them into Zelda Review 1,2,3,4,5. My Zelda here is just an example like you did with this article.
Sometimes getting silly posts like I do “Choose one living with alien/moving plants/ etc.” It’s related a bit to fantasy from game and short enough to attract attention 🙂
Again it’s my opinion only and you can ignore it if you find the comment is not suitable to be your input.
Thanks for the advice, much appreciated and I’m always open to suggestions, blog and topic-wise ;).
I actually tried this direct address of the audience with my latest movie reviews and some gaming-related stuff. I’ll do it with the next ones as well, hoping that there’s some feedback ;). I’m not sure if the questions come across as “term paper leading questions” and such, as I have them in bold format, but I thought it’s easier to make them out and some can also be replied to without actually having watched the movies or games :).
Yes, I totally agree with you on good old games. I try to find a balance between classics and new releases, although with so many titles released it’s easier to write reviews about movies ;).
Still, there will be many game reviews coming up soon. Just needs more time working on them, that’s why the gaming news became more frequent ;).
I see. In that case do what you think is the best for your blog.
Cool I can’t wait to see your upcoming cool reviews 🙂
There are also other cool reviews to check out in the past blog entries ;). But yes, there will be more. Working on some simultaneously, old and new alike, different genres :).
Keep your suggestions and opinions coming. Mean a lot to me 🙂
If that’s the case I will try my best to leave lots of comments. Please bear with my face all over your blog lol
No problem, I’ll do the same ;). But I change my profile pic more often so that you don’t get used to it 🙂
