Our top pick of the week?
Life is Strange 2: Episode 1
The original Life in Strange and it’s spinoff, Before the Storm, were a massive hit with fans for its mixture of mystery and drama with the realities of coming of age.
We’re excited to see how the narrative team will move their attention to the relationship between these two brothers, something very different to the previously female lead entries.
