Vampyr – Xbox One Review

Developer DONTNOD (of Life Is Strange fame), attempts to change the standard way of storytelling and progression with their RPG title Vampyr. But does it rise from the dead or just bleed you dry?

Vampyr, the highly anticipated game from French developer Dontnod Entertainment (they were the guys who made Remember Me and Life Is Strange) has been delayed until Spring 2018.

Will Life Is Strange Be Going Back In Time To A Life Before Max?

According to an album posted on Imgur, a Life is Strange prequel may very well be in the works but not by original developers Dontnod, but by developers Deck Nine Games. A screenshot was found on Deck Nine Games’ official website but was removed shortly after. If rumour has it, the prequel will focus on protagonists Rachel and Chloe from the original Life is Strange title, perhaps outlining the events of how they met and become good friends? Below are the leaked screenshots to the game in development, but doesn’t give away too much as to what the story is … Read More »

Life is Strange 2 let slip by Dontnod co-founder

Although the quality of its ending is questionable, Life is Strange still remains a highlight of the past year with its compelling story and twists upon the episodic genre. That a sequel now seems in the works is a good thing then, no? In an interview with French site Alchimy, Alain Damasio, co-founder of Dontnod and “script doctor” for Life is Strange, stated “I worked as a script doctor on Life is Strange developed by the studio DONTNOD and I will participate on Life is Strange 2 later.” That’s according to Reddit, at least, and if you paste the sentence into Google Translate (scroll … Read More »

Life is Strange: Episode 5 “Polarized” Spoiler-Free Review

Until the beginning of this month I hadn’t played a single episode of Life is Strange. Sure I’d heard it was good and knew I wanted to play it, but I’ve a backlog pile of games that’s growing so large a health and safety inspector would become nervous at the thought of it toppling over. This is important for you to know because it means I haven’t been present to the theories since the first episode launched back in January; haven’t waited in anticipation for the next episode to release; and ultimately haven’t had the months of emotional investment in the characters that … Read More »
