Life Is Strange

«Life Is Strange» fills a gaming need I didn't know I had, as there has been precious few games about teenage high-school melodrama with time traveling so far. It's basically an adventure game in the Telltale tradition, but for the kind of person who enjoy mysteries like «Donnie Darko» and «Twin Peaks» and also has a soft spot for coming-of-age stories like «My So-Called Life».

The art of Ikaruga 斑鳩

Whilst I obviously think the most important trait of a good game is beautiful game-play, having great visuals is a very close second. 

In fact, I am not ashamed to admit that I am a huge graphics whore, who will often dismiss otherwise playable games due to sub-par art direction. Even though I have chosen the lifestyle of an avid gamer, life is still too short to be playing games that aren't awesome in every way.
