Ah I see, so it's more of a single ep demo for Life is Strange 2?

I assumed it was gonna be a full game in that universe when it was announced.

Not a big deal at all.

I'm curious, for the people saying they won't play this because it has no achievements, did you even care about The Life is Strange series in the first place? Or were you just hoping to get some easy GS in a free game you otherwise don't care about?

I would hope someone that actually likes and enjoys the series would still play something they enjoyed.

I own the first game and its prequel but I've not played them yet.

I think it’s a shame that people aren’t going to play this because it doesn’t have Achievements. Yeah they would have been nice, but if you’re a fan of the series, why not give it a chance?

Even more so as there might be references to it in LiS 2 that may go over your heads.

I’ve had it Pre-ordered since E3 & am really looking forward to playing it. I loved Life is Strange & Before the Storm. Plus, it’s a nice thing of Dontnod to do, and more stories in that Universe, Achievements or not, are welcomed by myself.

Ah well, to those that are going to uninstall it...your loss. Especially if it’s a brilliant episode.

Disliked LiS but was going to give this a go but was not fussed if I missed it. When they announced it, I expected it would be episodic but that is not happening. Would rather play something in my backlog instead.
This post may be sarcastic.

I know we all love achievements but it is a pretty sad and pathetic state of affairs not to play a game just because it hasn't got any.
I won't be playing this due to the the unappealing trailers we've been given and the dev's history of releasing terrible games.

No complaints about achievements at all wink
I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

Life is Strange is one of my favorite games, ever. This news doesn't really bother me. Heck, the farewell episode of Before the Storm didn't have any either and I still loved it.

Honestly, it's one way that I think achievements/trophies have ruined gaming for some (like me)...

While one of the positives to come out of it is that I try genre's I never did before... but an unfortunate negative is that I really don't have interest in playing games without those arbitrary pointless little awards.

I care about the series because they’re easy and not for the quality which is overhyped in my opinion. I was looking for free gamerscore. I think the people that play this will be fans of the series. If I hear incredible things about this I might try it but unlikely.

My backlog is piling up and my issue is I have games I really want to play with achievements so I’m why would I play this game that I’m not really interested in and doesn’t have them. I hope this helps see into the mind of an uninstallersmile

Bad series with easy GS in my opinion, this was going to be more of the same but alas it shall be uninstalled.

never bothered playing games until a guy at work told me about 360 Achievements and I never looked back.. when they stop putting Achievements in the games that's when I stop there would be no point for me. Playing a game without Achievements now would be like not having a Cell Phone now a days

They really should give people the option to straight up buy gamerscore. Why waste precious time with playing something you don't enjoy if you could just fork over the money and get the points. This really would be something for the gamers.
Looking for Gamerscore in all the wrong places !!!
