    Not sure about life is strange. Heard good things but I dunno.
    It's a very fun game, although not a particularly great game from a critical standpoint. Many critics gave it low scores and there's a LARGE discrepancy between the critic and consumer reviews. The game doesn't do anything new. The combat is a weaker version of the batman games. The gameplay is VERY grindy and repetitive. You quickly become very strong and the game becomes very easy.

    So why is there a discrepancy? People like having fun and the game is fun. It's fun to run around blowing shit up. I don't know how else to put it, but my friend and I loved the game. I highly recommend it if you're willing to just sit back and have fun. I like comparing it to borderlands. Both games are just fun. Mad max isn't as silly as borderlands, but borderlands is just kinda fun. No revolutionary shooting gameplay or anything, but still very enjoyable.
    You didn't touch on the most important (to me) part. Elaborate on the achievements. If/when I finally start Mad Max, getting all of the cheevos are the prime goal.

    On a related note, my podcast Zed to Zed have a long and spoiler filled discussion on Life Is Strange after the main show of episode 11, well worth a listen (if I do say so myself):

    OT: Is the Prototype bundle worth it at that price? Or is getting the retail discs + buying the DLC separate a better deal?
    I think you can get it seperately for a better price
    Well, the DLC for Prototype 2 is $20 by itself and given the seeming death of standalone DLC sales, it might be worth it. However, there's 2 different bundles, one for the X1 and one for the 360. The X1 version is $50 vs the 360's $20. Have they been remastered or something?
