Well, there were many events to me in this year. My doctor's course in graduation school has begun, I made some acquaintances(or friends?), wrote a thesis(although lt will be presented in a seminar in the first half of next year), and some private affairs I can't share. But most of all I met Chloe, Rachel, and Max half a year ago, and I want to call this year as "Life is Strange Year" to me.
In fact, buying LiS(Season 1) was nothing but a coincidence. I saw this game in two Korean Youtube videos("Top 10 hardest choices in video games", and "8 Video games giving spoilers by themselves(Jeffers*it's line in Episode 1 was pointed out)") for the first time, and I was attracted to a girl with blue hair in no time. So I bought Season 1 and BtS, an…Read more >
Just as the title says, I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :)
The wiki continues to grow from your love of the franchise, and it's been really nice to see that a few of you even enjoy tackling some of the more time-consuming pages (e.g. episode scripts). It hasn't gone unnoticed, and I know for a fact that your hard work has helped others in the fandom.
I also wish to express thanks to those editors who have been a great help when it comes to reverting acts of vandalism. We've experienced a large amount lately, and I'm saddened that there are people who would make trouble over such a festive period. With your continued support, vandals will never destroy the years of hard work that has gone into creating, bui…Read more >
I just finished Season 2 with "Redemption" ending.
Overall, it was not that bad. But sadly, "not that bad" doesn't mean "is was great". And more sadly, it wasn't as good as I expected.
But I finished this anyway, so I want to share some PROS and CONS I think about this game.
Before you read further:
1. It's obvious that what I think is "pros" can be your "cons", vice versa, because this is MY opinion.
2. I hurried a bit to see the ending, so I could have missed some(or many?) details.
1. Graphics and character animation
Yeah, it's obviously improved. I don't have much to say about graphics, but my eyes enjoyed wonderful sceneries.
And Sean's walking animation was amazing. I surprised at Riverside Cave scene of Episode 1 for the first time, bec…

With Episode 5 now here (for those that waited patiently for the official release), it is perhaps a good time to mention the "screenshot or game asset" discussion that staff have had among ourselves in the past (and with a representative from SE).
While some of us here are keen game file explorers who enjoy digging for items to examine more closely, it is not always necessary to upload an original art transparency when a screenshot of the asset as it appears in-game would suffice. Screenshots are often preferred for a uniform appearance in picture galleries, depending on the gallery context and what we want to achieve with page presentation.
The danger we saw with uploading too many original and unmodified assets over screenshots is that the…Read more >
Yeah, it's December, and release of "Wolves" is fast approaching. So I did what I have postponed: play TAAoCS.
The main reasons my delaying were three: Sitting and waiting for the next episode is my faaaavorite thing, I prefer girls' story then boys', and hero movie/game is not my cup of tea.
But still, I enjoyed this game. To be honest, I already like this more than "Farewell".
Chris was much more cute and attractive than I expected!
Well... until he got Captain costume. SORRY for the fans, but it looked little silly to me.
I love the background of this game, because I love winter and snow. I remember Miss Selfie Hipster said "I wish October would last forever...", and I want to say "I wish December would last forever..." :)

Earlier today, we were informed of some activity outside the wiki that involved unreleased LiS 2 Episode 5 material - material people would have only seen on or after the official release date next week.
We are concerned that comments and content surrounding this material might make its way to the wiki, so we are asking those who contribute here to bear in mind the currently unreleased status of Episode 5 and please do not (or do not continue to) spread word of any Episode 5 content that has not been officially released, as this can impact upon the wider Life is Strange community. Even if things of this nature are posted to places designated for leaks, they rarely stay there.
We also urge any wiki editor who may have been involved in bringin…Read more >
I got LiS as a Christmas present from my other half for Christmas 2018.
I played this during my holiday from work within a day - like most of us I assume.
I have a confession to make - I sacraficed Chloe and I didn't even hesitate for a moment... What went through my mind at that very moment was sacrafice the life of one for potentially thousands. There were characters in the episodes that spoke to me, like the innocence of Joyce, trying to rebuild her life after her husband is killed in a freak accident. Chloe seemed troubled to me and despite Max leaving over five years ago managed to latch back on to her.
Then it all changed - I played BTS, and oh my frickin goddess - Chloe Price is an absolute legend and by far my favourite character. …Read more >
Today was... my b-day.
Happy birthday, Safiye Choson. You’re student live in dorm, so this means you should spend your b-day with yourself, but congrats! Now you have only a couple of years before you turn thirty, so use your time wisely! :)
Now, if I say more honestly, I spend all days with myself. But I talked with my parents on my phone for a long time, and had a party with some of my acquaintances( You may call them as my “friends”, but I don’t grant that title so easily. :/ ). Both of them made today special.
And finally, I gave something to myself as a gift. This was hella wonderful if I can ignore this gift was sent from Safiye. lol
P.S. HBD, Schrödinger guy, I know it's a week away, but I just want to congratulate you in advance. XD…

We're one month away from Episode 5!
In preparation, I've compiled a list of every action that causes the animated wolves logo to appear for Sean and Daniel. I've been working on this for quite some time now and I believe that it's complete, but please let me know if I'm missing anything.
A quick reminder (see this page for more information):
Primary Key Name Function
Consequences: Sean This animated logo for the large wolf appears when a choice will have consequences for Sean.
Consequences: Daniel This animated logo for the small wolf appears when a choice will have consequences on Daniel.
Consequences: Sean and Daniel This animated logo of two wolves appears when a choice will have consequences over both Sean and Daniel.
With that, here's the l…

Let's start this blog with my little confession. Before I played this game, I had almost no knowledge about the life of American teens. So when I saw the endings of Season 1 and BtS, I tried to imagine what if LiS set in Korea, my homeland. I mean, Korean teenagers' life is quite different with American teens, so there would be so many differences.
And now I picked out 10 most interesting things I think, and want to introduce those.
Before you read further, please don't forget about these:
- What I say "school" in this blog is general middle/high schools. Vocational school or specialized schools can be little different.
- "Max/Chloe isn't a Korean Name. Oh, and Blackwell too!" will not be included. :D
In almost every school, every students must w…

After spending the week playing through Season 1 once again from start to finish, you may have noticed some cool details/references/Easter Eggs you missed before, or inconsistencies not mentioned on the wiki. So let's make sure we get these things on here. :)
With regards to things of a more technical nature, perhaps you've experienced some bugs or glitches this time, screen tearing issues, or dialogue that doesn't match choices made earlier in the game, or missing textures, etc.
I think I mentioned in a previous blog that I'd started compiling a list of issues ever since I was told there's still QA aftercare in place for Season 1. I had previously passed on info like this about a year after Episode 5 was released, but there have be…Read more >
- Before you Read: What I wrote in this blog was just my feelings and thoughts about the final decision of this game. Blaming or criticizing was NOT what I meant to.
During this magical week, I played one episode of Season 1 day by day, and even on my daily routine, I continuously thought about The Awesome Adventures of Max And Chloe. "Kate Marsh would be safe by now, and some of us hippies have homework..."(on Tuesday), "Good evening, alternative Selfie. I love your cardigan. Wait... maybe I should wear my cardigan before I go out too? The weather report said it's cool outside."(on Wednesday), "Oh, the moon is so bright and pretty... it's a full moon, maybe...? Pfft, Safiye, please stop. You can not see two moons at the same sky, of course..…

Today is the hundredth day since I met Max and Chloe.
Like many of you, this fr**king game influenced me many ways. Today is my personal anniversary, so I want to say some things about that.
And I'm going to exclude "I can't get out from this game", "I found my life game", "This game changed me much" things. I just want to write one sentence about this: Definitely Understandable, Hipsters!
I learned quite many American slangs from "wowser" and "hella" to "dickhead", "weirdo", "douche", "girlie", "batshit", "cunt", "asshat", "(First name) + (slang) + (Last name)" thing, etc. etc. etc. etc. I think I would never use these in everyday life for those were mean... but pretty funny too.

Before you read: I heavily depended on Chloe's Messages for checking times.Read more >
I played BtS from the beginning few days ago, and I chose to say "Dad was a good man." to Joyce. And as we know Chloe said "Nah, I'll just... grab something later." because she hated the thing I don't know named 'pot roast', but she met with girl-kisser and never-kisser who played tabletop, talked about true love, found Little Miss Sunshine’s belt instead of grab something.
So at this point, I was beginning to wonder about Chloe's other meals. Was she on a extreme diet, or that breakfast was one exception? Here’s my little research.
If we can ignore prologue and epilogue, BtS covers the event from May 7th's morning to May 9th's afternoon. So Chloe should have had a ei…
UPDATED with a response from the writer - 5th Sept, 2019
Just a quick blog about something I've noticed happening on the wiki over time.
Some characters are being assigned a spirit animal like it's become a mandatory thing that they all should have one. This was a theme from Season 1 that I think is being carried over too much outside of an original context.
The concept of "spirit animal" is considered a sacred thing (culturally) that empowers, guides, or acts as a messenger (also from the dead), and Blackwell Academy's backstory was that it was built on sacred Native American land as well as the main theme of Season 1 dealing with death and the prevention or acceptance of it. Sometimes, you will see animal representation of characters or ani…

I'm currently compiling a list of bugs and glitches in Episode 4 with some video examples and screenshots to pass on to Dontnod's QA team like I've done with the other three episodes.
Episode 4 actually marks the first time in Season 2 that I've not experienced any major issues on a first playthrough (except for a minor localisation spelling error), but that doesn't mean others haven't experienced things themselves.
Has anyone experienced anything odd or out of place with Episode 4?
As usual, I'll be wanting to hear about any:
- Clipping Issues - e.g. Characters walking through objects that should be obstacles.
- Texture Issues - e.g. Textures popping into view or temperamental visibility.
- Audio Issues - e.g. Lines that don't sound like they should; t…

I bought "The Tempest" by Willie today, and believe this is another positive effect of Life is Strange. :)
Now, I hope I can find in-game lines. such as:
"By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune hath mine enemies brought to this shore. Here, cease more questions. Thou art inclined to sleep."
"Most fearless, generous spirit! Hast thou performed to point the tempest that I bade thee?"
"Is there more toil? Let me remember thee what thou hast promised!"
"Hell is empty, and all the devils are here!"
"What is it? A spirit? It carries a brave form, but...'tis a spirit."
"O heaven, O earth, bear witness to this sound."
"Thy liberty? Nay! This most of all I will not grant!"
"We shall fly beyond this isle, the corners of the world our mere prologue."

Just wanted to leave a little blog about editing courtesies based on things that have happened in the past whenever a new episode drops.
A new release means a busy time on any wiki as fans rush to be the first to add content. Staff are going to do their best to check edits during these busy periods, but since we're very short-staffed on here right now, checking edits for accuracy (or vandalism) isn't possible 24/7. Most staff also avoid the wiki until completing a first playthrough due to spoilers. Saying that, we've got some great regular editors on here at the moment who are doing their best to help out when staff aren't around. :)
So here's the polite request when it comes to editing around these busy times (and a good guide for a…Read more >
Been a bit wiped out lately, or I would have been writing this yesterday. Just leaving this here in case anyone would like to discuss the Episode 4 trailer in more detail. :)
SPOILERS BELOW FOR THOSE WHO ARE AVOIDING THE TRAILER.
In the Episode 4 trailer, Sean is alone, looking for his brother Daniel, and it appears the authorities are too.
Appearance wise, Sean has changed. His head is shaved, and some gauze is now taped over his left eye to protect the injury he received at the end of Episode 3. This gauze appears to have been initially applied in a hospital facility, as seen by the character in medical scrubs who tells Sean about its application ("four times a day. I won't forget," Sean says, finishing his sentence). Sean also has a small sc…Read more >
I went to the seminar about “Religion and philosophy of later Choson period” or something few days ago. And this is a photo of seminar’s material book.
As you see, there is lighthouse on the cover of the book. And when I looked this, I recalled Acadia freaking Bay’s lighthouse in no time, even though it looked quite different after I calmed down.
Thanks, DONTNOD. Now you make me hella strange. :)Read more >
Just a little universal message to you all (mainly to the regular editors on here) for your continued patience with me over the past few/several(?) months while I've been trying my best to hold the fort while our two admins and fellow moderators aren't around at the moment (mainly due to studies).
I wasn't here as much last year as I took a long break to focus on a LiS project, but I'm now trying to be here more frequently while the other staff aren't so available. They all picked up the slack when I wasn't around, so it's only fair that I try to manage things as best I can for them in return. :)
But just to put you all in the picture, I know I've mentioned it briefly on a couple of your walls already, but I am trying to cope with the above w…Read more >
Since DONTNOD like to make references to personal influences, perhaps keep a look out for any Stephen King or Steven Spielberg references or influences that may surface in Life is Strange 2. The reason I mention this is this interview answer from a video interview uploaded to YouTube today.
Keep those eyes and ears peeled if you are a big fan of either of those. :)Read more >
Post contains spoilers for those of you who have not yet played Episode 3
So, with the release of Life is Strange 2: Episode 4 not far away now, I wanted to throw my own theory/predictions out there that I've discussed off-wiki before now (except without the fancy picture I've just created, lol).
Feel free to comment with your own predictions for the episode as I'd love to hear them. :)
Here are the things I noticed that I'm basing my predictions around:
- The Nevada signage on the Episode 3 menu screen upon completion of the episode.
- Jacob talking about being from a religious community in Nevada and saying he's had doubts about his beliefs and won't return until he gets some kind of sign ("Not until I get a signal from God at least"). He also acts ske…

I wanted to have a bit of a change from my usual posts that tend to be more on the wiki updates/game research side, so I thought it would be nice to have an introductory blog where you fellow editors can tell me your stories of how you discovered Life is Strange (like which game was the entry point into the fandom)... which game is preferred and why... and how the games resonate with you emotionally. :)
I'm not very good at summarising my love for LiS, but I'll have a go! I'll keep this summary about my experience with the first game until I can figure out how to word my experience with the other games in the franchise.
My own discovery of Life is Strange (Season 1) was when I needed a break from - coincidentally - a photography course I was do…Read more >
Hi folks. Some of you have raised concerns about the coincidental editing that sometimes occurs on a page you've been working on at the same time. I know how frustrating it is to spend hours writing and researching content "off-wiki" only to find that someone has changed page content while you've been busy plugging your own work into the page... So you check what's been changed, only to find this added content has pretty much duplicated what you had spent precious time on!
To address this issue, Ladosha has kindly come up with an "Editing in Progress" warning template. There are two types we can use:
- The large version is to use at the top of any page you wish to work on at that particular time across multiple sections. Good to use when you are…

Just wanted to leave a quick blog to address a spate of Season 1 page edits my mail box is filling up with lately. I think this is more changes to Season 1 pages than I have seen for a while! Nothing wrong with editing older pages, of course, but here is where I want to address some points that are really important to the wiki with regards to Season 1 content:
- Please be mindful that anything in Season 1 is THE founding lore. This must be preserved at all costs. At least two of us here got burnt out from a seemingly constant battle a couple of years back to prevent Season 1 pages being overwritten by BtS lore that was being added to these pages. Some inconsistencies between the two games resulted in the decision to split the pages for…
I'm currently compiling a list of bugs and glitches in Episode 3 with some video examples and screenshots to pass on to Dontnod's QA team like I've done with the other two episodes.
As with Episode 2, I've had a fair number of strange things happen in this episode. Has anyone else experienced something odd?
Here's just a sample of some of the things I've been compiling (I've left out the specific examples as this would be too long to read):
- Clipping Issues - Characters walking through objects that should be obstacles.
- Texture Issues - Textures jumping to a different location in cutscenes, textures being missing in some cutscenes then correcting themselves upon restarting the checkpoint, or things being where they shouldn't be.

Since I was recently told that there's still aftercare in place for the first game by way of a support team managed by Square Enix, this is an opportunity (and probably a last chance) to get any remaining bugs/glitches ironed out. We can submit any bugs and glitches in the original game via this link.
I'm currently in the process of organising a list of bugs/glitches to submit, but if you are reading this and would like anything you have encountered to be submitted on your behalf, please mention what you experienced in a comment below along with your operating system and specifications (if playing on PC), or what console your experienced it on.

Life is Strange 2 - Achievement analysis. Just something I was having a little fun with. :)
Disclaimer: While I have not read The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac, I have spent some time reading through plot summaries on various scholastic websites - as well as those by general readers - to find the common themes and consistencies they share in order to assist my analysis and speculations.

All achievements are featured in the order of their planned appearance in the game.
Achievement name: Homeward Bound.
Possible reference to:

Hi folks and fellow editors. :)
For a long while now, I've been keeping a record of useful quotes I've gathered from various interviews and articles that have historically helped me to answer some of the most common questions repeatedly asked in the fandom; a handful of these being: Amberprice (canon?), Warren Graham (creepy stalker?), Rachel Amber (manipulative?), Chloe Price (toxic friend?), and even fans questioning the body in the junkyard being Rachel, because we don't see her face.
From personal experience, it's been quicker to resolve fan questions with a quote from the mouths of the devs and writers themselves. :)
So here's my list of go-to quotes, plus some recent content from interviews conducted during the development of Season 2 that I …Read more >
Hello contributors and readers,
Due to inactivity and the potential security risks posed by old accounts, the wiki staff will initiate the removal of rights from users User:Woosk, User:Josey-chan, User:Charlie1121 and User:The Walking North.
This is an unanimous decision by the current active staff that is (will be) confirmed by us leaving a comment with our respective accounts under this blog post.
Update: The removal was completed on January 9, 2018.
As always, thanks to our contributors, without them the wiki wouldn't be as comprehensive.Read more >
Awesome! Your first incentive should be to add your interesting observation to a related article. If you find an interesting detail about one of the characters — for example their favorite color, or which character from another piece of fiction they might be based on —, add it to their article's "Trivia" section. Don't forget to mention the episode, location and/or circumstances your observation can be made in.
On our Wiki, we feature several "special content" articles for every game — "Easter Eggs", "Easily Missed Details" and "References" — to differentiate between different kind of 'more special' interesting observations and findings one may make.
Perhaps, as an editor, you might make an interesting observation in one of t…

Without further ado, I shall now release my personal thoughts into the world...
Has the story of Max and Chloe been told and there's nothing left to say?
I don't think so for a few reasons:
- There are several lose threads
- I want to know how they settle in as a couple (at least I wish they'll do so) wherever they are going.
- Many fans have been emotionally heavily invested in the game, often to a point where they fell in love with both girls. Some were so deep into it they were wrecked for days after they finished the games. I'm definitely one of them.
- You can and perhaps even should leave the end open to the audience's imagination in a 2 hr movie, but not in two highly immersive games that together take >30 hours to explore and you don't just watch, but are the main protagonists.
- I also think that DontnoD's opinion that the stor…
If you could change certain aspects about Life is Strange or it's prequel Before the Storm what would they be. Perhaps they could be changes made in a TV Series or Director's Cut of the video game. Personally I'd expand on the Prescott's conspiracy and Chloe's pysch.Read more >
