So after laughing my ass off at all the Yiga clan fails i picked Botw back up and remembered why i put it down again. I just don't have the quick thinking or hoarding instinct to play this game. i bum rush everything and end up losing all of my melee weapons. Still fun though
So I played A Bird Story and Finding Paradise back to back. Both are sequels to To the Moon.
SPOILERS for both
So A Bird Story is about an hour long. It's fairly neat and full of whimsy, but there's very little interaction. It also ties in substantially to Finding Paradise. I honestly think it should just have been put right in Finding Paradise as a sort of 'prequel episode' instead of two separate games.
To the Moon was a fun game for its premise and how it delivered with the whole idea of scientists going into the memories of a dying person and modifying his or her memories to give that person an 'alternate life' so to speak. Finding Paradise fleshes that out further, then subverts it some more. I caught on decently early that Faye was a part of Colin's imagination, but not how strong a part of his mind she was. It took me a lot longer to realise exactly what she represented, too. Faye with bird wings is a very beautiful bit of symbolism, since she represents Colin's ideal of his pet bird after it left. It certainly gave him the confidence booster he needed in life, too. Considering he was a latchkey kid, no surprise there. Honestly, it even sidelines Colin's real, flesh-and-blood wife. I almost feel like the game missed a bit of an epilogue. Since there's some dialogue that suggests that what the doctors do is recorded in video for 'proof' or something afterwards, I wonder what it would be like for Colin's wife to see he had such an overactive imagination he had an imaginary birdgirl friend into his early adulthood.
I finished the last three episodes of Life is Strange.
It looks like some of my theories were close, and others not so much. Nathan Prescott was definitely involved, and in something his family wouldn't be able to cover up. The reason Jefferson tried getting Kate to kill herself was because she remembered too much of the photo-shoot. I was right about Victoria not being involved. She's just an alpha-b****, which makes it a little surprising she was going to be their next target. They wanted Kate to kill herself, not to leave town. David Madsen was on the right tracks, but was just a little behind Max because he doesn't have her time-rewind powers. There's no indication of what gave Max her powers, but it's strongly suggested the tornado is a result of multiple realities crashing together from her photo-time-travelling and forming as a tornado to wipe Arcadia Bay as a temporal anomaly. Since the only appearances of the spirit doe are in the junkyard, where Rachel Amber is buried, and in Max's visions, it's possible the spirit doe is Rachel, giving Max her powers. In the 'Sacrifice Chloe/Save Arcadia Bay', this makes a weird dichotomy since the story doesn't actually accomplish anything with Max's powers. If she never had them in the first place, the story would have ended like it did in the sacrifice Chloe ending. So my headcanon is that at least in that timeline, Rachel's spirit gave Chloe five days left of having a 'happier' life before she has to die, even if retconned past-Chloe shot in the bathroom doesn't experience any of that.
