Episode 24 - Life is Strange

Join RFGeneration Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), Floyd (Fleach), Steven (Disposed Hero), and special guest, the bright-eyed and fun-loving, YouTube sensation, JRock the GameRocker, as we discuss our March playthrough of Life is Strange.  In this episode, we discuss the story, gameplay mechanics, and soundtrack, and do a chapter-by-chapter analysis of the game and talk about the decisions we made and how they ultimately impacted our experiences. If you played Life is Strange with us last month, or have played it before, I think this podcast should be a must listen. As always, we are always happy to hear your thoughts on the game and our podcast on our discussion page (linked below) and are always happy to respond and discuss the game more. So, how did all five of us like the game?  Which Blackwell Academy ladies were some of us crushing on?  And, which one of us clearly despises Yoko Ono? You can get the answers to these questions and many more by tuning into our podcast this month!
