The link says it's coming to Xbox One and Windows 10, but is it really a Series X game and you just get an inferior version on XBox One? August 27 though.

Doesn't look like a very demanding title at all. Im sure the Xbox One will run it fine.

Has anyone played this? What'd did y'all think of Chapter 1? I thought it was solid, couple technical hiccups, probably was on my side. Can't wait for Chapter 2.

I didn't start life is strange 2 so cant comment on that lol

But I finished this first chapter yesterday and it's pretty much the same straight forward almost point and click gameplay. The story on this one seems pretty interesting though and ends with a good enough cliff hanger to make you wish the next episode was out already.

Luckily it's only 3 episodes and they are released weekly. So the next one is out this thursday and the 3rd is out the week after.

Achievements are all pretty easy too. There are a few collectables each chapter, but no achievement for collecting them all unless there's one for collecting all of them in every chapter?

It did feel like a slog sometimes and so much stuff you can interact with is pointless as it doesn't add anything to the story at all.

The score isn't as good as life is strange either. That's the one thing that immediately grabbed my attention in that game. This game doesn't have that really.

Be repetitive had they did the Time Rewind Manipulation again. The mechanic here is just remembering details of the past and speaking telepathically between the two main characters. It's interesting.

The Score for
[Show spoiler]the Police Archive Search
in Chapter 2 was pretty good, otherwise the music doesn't hit me as much as Life is Strange Season 1's music did as I recently played it alongside the hiatus of each Tell Me Why Episode. Tell Me Why gave me an excuse to play Life is Strange.
