The anticipation and hype for episode 4 is sky high.

My excitement for episode 4 actually ruined my sleep the night I finished episode 3. I must have my punk Chloe.

Checking out some LiS theories, found this video.

 

Man. True Detective season 1 was great. It's interesting to hear this quote be tied in with LiS. But now that I think of it, a lot of the concepts of TD's season 1 could be.

I love this type of game where every decision you make leads to a different ending
 
Like Catherine or The Walking Dead by Telltale Games.

Except the ending of Episode 3 pretty much undid every decision you've made up until this point. I wouldn't expect much in the way of choices & consequences.

Not to say I didn't enjoy it, as ep 3 pretty much completely reinvested me in the story.

I just can't see the choices we made in 1, 2, and most of 3 not mattering.

I don't know, but I've a feeling we will try to go back in some way. 

 

We have to go back.....

Nah, i'm quite positive the choices will make a difference, otherwise, there'd be no point in putting them in.

You mean like Mass Effect, or any Telltale game in the last few years? There'll be a choice at the very end of the 5th episode that dictates the ending, everything else is irrelevant.

I...wouldn't say everything else is irrelevant. This isn't ME or Telltale.

ME though was a completely different breed.

This analogy doesn't quite work.

 

Your choice in Mass Effect DO matter, it's only ME3's ending that disregards them, really.

Well I guess we have a different idea of what it means for your choices to matter. A few different lines of dialogue isn't really much of a consequence to me, especially with how much these games like to play them up.

Lel I f*cked up and posted this in the Witcher 3 thread. Only just now noticed.

 

Really need episode 4. I was actually thinking about how much this game reminds me of Donny Darko after hearing this song off a Spotify playlist of mine.

 
Great song from a great movie. I can see this song fitting into LiS, haha.

A bit of a late reply, my apologies.

 

There's far more than a "few different lines of dialogue", like the choice of

Either way, I fully expect us to revert to the original timeline where our choices DO matter, LiS has been pretty good with choices so far, why would they intentionally drop the ball now?

Well, can you give me an example of what choices have genuinely impacted the story or the game world?. Not trying to be petty, I am actually curious.

Never heard of this game before stumbling into this thread. Sounds like an interesting concept.

Downloading the three episodes. Will get back to let you know what I think.:)

I didn't see it as petty at all, but since you asked about choices....(Needless to say, massive spoilers ahead.)

I was talking about LiS, my bad.

And a lot of those choices you listed don't actually have any consequence. (Spoilers ahead, hard to tag on mobile)
The Rachni Queen shouldn't even BE in the 3rd game if you wiped her out in the first, "they found another egg" is incredibly stupid and contrived.
The collector base is irrelevant in 3, and all those suicide mission characters appear in small pointless cameos, all easily replaceable (like Mordin is) some even just send you an email.
A lot of those things you listed don't happen until the third act of the trilogy, which means the writer doesn't have to take into account any actual consequences for said actions. I said earlier this was likely to be the case with LiS as well, all serious choices will be indepently decided in the 5th episode.

Maybe I'm just cynical though? I have yet to see an episodic story like these that have become so popular recently do the whole choices thing well, it's generally more for standalone titles, like Planescape: Torment or KOTOR.

Apologies, since ME was mentioned, I blindly assumed that was the topic of reference in the conversation.

 

I retain my point, but at the same time, I see exactly what you're saying, these choices don't completely change the story and are sometimes resolved cheaply, however, they still have some impact on the game world and aren't TOTALLY pointless.

 

While it'd be nice to have every choice end up shaping your game in some way, I think it'll be a LONG, LONG time before we start seeing developers doing that, LiS took some baby steps, but not full-blown, I think it'd take a very long time if they had to account for every choice and such, plus it's just impractical with an episodic system, the episodes would take forever to release.

 

Cynical? Nah, I think we just have a different view on the illusion of choice and actual choice..and that's okay.

 

Cheers.

Finished the first two episodes. Can't wait to play Chaos Theory. :)

 

My only criticism so far is the lip syncing is a bit cheap. but that's the only thing I can think of.

 

Also Max's voice actress sounds so much like Clementine's from The Walking Dead.

It takes me around 2 days just to finish an episode, mostly because I really want to take my time with this game.
 
Pretty stoked for the next episode myself,

I probably should've taken some more time, but it's one of those games that I just have to see what happens next. I pretty much done each episode in one sitting each.

Maybe in the wait for the next episode I could replay the others to get all the photo ops and try different decisions.

If you want to go for photo's, they have a wonderful collectible mode which lets you get the photos and then quit to the next chapter. Nothing you do or say is cannon, it's literally just for taking photo's. It's great.

So they have an official Spotify playlist with songs that haven't been used yet. We have 3 songs so far they didn't use:

 

This in the... (Episode 3/4? spoilers)

Those two I don't know. I have a feeling the one by Mud Flow may be the ending song for some reason...

Apologies for the double post, but has anything been said about episode 4 yet? I'm dying to continue the saga.
