    Apr 7th, 2017 at 00:42:41     -    Life is Strange (PC)

    Today I played my third session of Life is Strange, and it was much more interesting and tense than yesterday's session. I actually enjoyed this session. I found the interplay between the characters a lot more interesting, and I also liked the idea that you have a relationship with the girl you saved. I also liked that they introduced us to her, by reintroducing her to the character. I also liked that they tied in the missing person posters that have been everywhere. Another thing I found interesting is the little hints that they give you throughout the dialogue. Little things like Chloe's step-dad has a surveillance fetish. I feel that this will play a role in the story in the future. I ended the session today by entering another nightmare sequence. I'm not sure what they mean, but I do find it intriguing. Overall good session today.

    Apr 6th, 2017 at 00:38:46     -    Life is Strange (PC)

    So today I played Life is Strange again. I picked up where I left off, just getting outside after talking to the principal. I got introduced to the text messages that I can receive. I also read the new pages in the journal. After that I had a simple task of getting my flash drive from my room and taking it to my friend. The first obstacle was getting into the dorm, which required me spilling paint on Victoria. The next obstacle was getting the flash drive from Dana. After that Dana was locked in her room so I had to sneak into Victoria's room so that I could make Juliet see reason and let Dana out. After that I finally go the flash drive and had to then take it to the parking lot. On the way to the parking lot there were two more incidents that required my attention. The first was helping a girl not get hit by a football, the next was helping Kate with the security guy. After that I finally made it to the parking lot where I was confronted by Prescott and I had to escape in a truck. Overall I felt the story was super boring. Their wasn't too much content other than some tropes about social media. Didn't enjoy today's session.

    Today I started playing "Life is Strange." I had no previous experience with the game, and therefore had no expectations and biases. I at first found the game rather boring, but after I got out of the class for the first time, I found that it almost perfectly expresses what it is like to be a student in school. When she put her headphones in and the music came on and covered the everyday sounds, I was like wow this is so real to life. My interest was peaked when the gun scene played out in the bathroom and I was like ok so I will have to figure out a way to not be blamed for this crime. Then time rewound and I was like ah ok, now I think I understand how the game will be. It was interesting to see a game based on choices where you can rewind time and change your choices. I look forward to playing again tomorrow and seeing where the story goes. Overall I found today's play session intriguing.

    Feb 25th, 2017 at 12:46:57     -    Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PC)

    Today I played some more of Shadow of Mordor. In this session I started by simply finding the nearest mission to me and doing it. It was a simple mission and I simply had to kill a captain. The entire game is based around the prejudices of man against orc and vice versa. The orcs while violent do appear to have reasoning and their own culture. While that culture is based on violence, that doesn't mean that it is inherently evil. There is too black and white of a view in this world. Everything seems to be either good or evil. While you could argue that that is the characters perspective, I think that it would be worth wild to have some characters that conflict with this perception. I think the game is very fun overall and I'm excited to continue playing it and see what the ending is. It is interesting to see all the complexities of the orc culture and to see their interactions. It seems that while their "government" should be unstable it is actually very stable due to a clear path to the top and only the strongest and smartest are their leaders. It would be interesting to find a real world comparison to this culture. The game causes me to reflect on our culture and how in a similar way we value strength and power. It would be interesting to make that comparison in a paper.
