Brad whiffing on The Doors' reference right out of the gate.

Jeff hating on that teacher was pretty funny.

This is strange.

really liked the first episode its like Twin Peaks crossed with Pretty in Pink

Posted by Nardak

The first episode was pretty good. Hopefully the following episodes will be as good.

Great quicklook, and Jeff's disgust against photographers in it makes me laugh :)

NIGHTMARE PEOPLE

Great QL, Jeff's hate for the teacher is fantastic. I'll pick this up when all the episodes are out.

Jeff's in top form here lmao

Oh boy, Syd Matters, I love soft rock. I loved Remember Me so I am hoping this is good, now I just need to wait for it to pop up in the PSN Store.

This game seems alright. I will pick this up.

I do hope these guys will get another shot at 'Remember Me', though.

I need Jeff to teach a photography class IMMEDIATELY!

Boy, Remember Me started STRONG, but that thing lost steam so quick it was unreal. I was so sad I didn't like that game more.

Parts of this game made me throw up a little in my mouth.

This is the WORST Ground Hog's Day EVAR!

No. Stop with your anti-vaccination propaganda.

Posted by Bats

I'm probably definitely going to be picking this up. Also Jeff has the best freakouts.

The fact that this started with some grammar criticism makes me so goddamn happy that this is my website-about-video-games of choice

Posted by Nightcrawlah

I'm definitely getting this, but I'm gonna wait for all the episodes to come out.

This seems like a game for young people who think their emotions are important. I'd rather drive a rusty nail down my urethra than jive with what's going on here.

lol okay dude

This is currently Game of the Year 2015 so far for "Go Fuck your Selfie," and it might be a tough one to beat.

Looks like they took the positive feedback for the memory sequences from Remember Me and adapted them to be a core mechanic of the game.

As much as I won't play this game I appreciate that it's actually trying to add gameplay elements unlike most other games of this ilk.

This game looks pretty darn cool. I may have to get this.

Please link me to your TED talk where you explain why young people's emotions do not matter. I need to learn more!

Posted by Castiel

Some parts of this game seems really cool and then other parts just irks me the wrong way. That teacher in the beginning of the game is the human equivalent to nails on a chalkboard.

Ya fuck you short haired Emma Watson.

This seems pretty cool.

"Ahhhh nightmare people!"

Classic, love Jeff!

I couldn't hate everyone in this game more if I tried.

Excellent and very entertaining QL!

DONTNOD are onto something with their weird rewind mechanics. However, after Remember Me I'm just waiting for the "jumping the shark" moment in this stroyline. I think Life Is Strange has more potential than the Telltale approach to interactivity though. Maybe this could be the synthesis of David Cage, Telltale and Remember Me I've been looking for.

What I definitely already enjoy is DONTNOD's tendency to have flawed, yet very likable protagonists. No combat mechanics wearing ever so thin here either. It's a shame they lost the glorious electro soundtrack in the thematic switch - not that it would fit here. I just like electronic music a lot more than this kind of rock music.

why is the lip syncing in this game so awful?

Posted by MooseyMcMan

This game seems interesting, but having these bad facial animations in a story focused game is a deal breaker for me. I get that not every game can be LA Noire, and this game was clearly made on a budget, but dang. Someone needs to develop a cheap/efficient way to get decent facial animations into lower budget games like this.

I'm going to have to get this.

This looks so fucking neat. The writing seems pretty fucking great. These types of games seem to be like evolution of the adventure games of my youth, and I'm stoked that they exist. I'll definitely be picking this game up.

The feels like Tumblr: The Videogame with cringeworthy writing and awful lip-syncing.

And most characters, including the main one, make me want to punch them in the face.

I was sold the second I saw "Kate twerks for God".

Edited by Niflhe

This seems neat, but as with most episodic games, I'll probably wait for all five episodes to come out before I sit down with it.

Posted by geirr

I had a fantastic time with this, and if you study the environments closely there's lots of filler and "lore" to pick up on. The moment I had the bathroom scene happen I was completely immersed for the rest of the episode!

Gotta wait til March for the next one though.

I don't know why, but I love fictional school setting. This game seems made especially for me.
