Life is Strange Remastered: An unnecessary and broken update

For many years, the Life-Is-Strange series enjoys great popularity. So, of course, the joy was great, as during the E3 2021 a new edition of Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before The Storm was announced. A graphic update of the games of 2015 and 2017, which came to the years, that sounded quite promising. Well, the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, and with a look at the test version can only be said: This update could have saved Square Enix. Not only are the improvements marginal, suddenly there are bugs and mistakes that did not exist so before.

Nothing has changed to history. Life is strange puts one in the role of Max Caulfield, an 18-year-old photography student. After you had to pull away five years before game start with your parents, you return to your hometown for your studies and will be confronted directly with several problems. Among other things, you prepare the crooked friendship for your former best friend Chloe worried, to which you want to rebuild contact.

Life Is Strange Remastered: Complete Chloe & Max Relationship

Chloe himself has died by the school and got involved in many problems. Not least, this is the disappearance of their best friend Rachel Amber. Max tries everything to help Chloe and her friends. In doing so, she helps her reiscovered power that she can turn back back.

So she can keep talks again and again, influence events and steering in a particular direction. In addition to her new power, she has always visions about a storm that threatens the city. What it has with this storm and if you can help your friends, we do not reveal here.

The Prequel Life is Strange: Before The Storm is about the Best Girlfriend Chloe, who loses to Max 'move the stop under the feet and slips into all sorts of problems. Unlike Max, she has no special forces and one can not reverse any answers. In the history you learn more about Chloe, your character and friendship to Rachel Amber. Again, the story convinces with a great atmosphere and nature depth.

Which changes were announced?

An improved motion capture technique for lipsynchronous dialogues and beautiful facial animations has also been promised, and here too, the difference is hardly noticeable. The only visible change is shown in the lighting system. This affects mainly due to natural-looking eyes, as they are illuminated differently. A really relevant update can not be found here. And: the cuts scenes are sometimes more importantly looked worse than in the original, especially due to a disappeared blur effect.

Anyone who wants to have more impressions to the graphic distinction may be happy to see our graphic comparison in which the technical differences are shown.

Errors, mistakes and more mistakes!

Already in the first part you will be surprised with no-ending list of mistakes: flickering doors, overlapping texts, jerky pictures, longer loading times than in the original, the character changed spontaneously your position in the level, the screen frozed, more than once that crashed that Game completely off.

Much worse does not work anymore, you may think. The bugs are not better in the second part, but on the contrary, more.

How this is possible? We would also like to know. The good new lighting in Before The Storm partially ensures huge white spots on the monitor, subtitles are missing in places completely and instead are only the filenames there, dialogues are cut off again and again.

The many other smaller and larger annoyances that we ran across the path, such as spontaneous control offices, would blow up the frame here. Apparently, Remaster is currently the biggest challenge in the video game world at all. We can not explain this technical disaster shortly after the GTA-Trilogy debacle. Really disappointing.

How can you run a remaster so?

The story in the Remaster is of course as great as in the originals. No wonder, she was not changed. In addition, however, the question arises as to whether it would have needed the Remaster, but those how to omse such a simple task as a minimal graphic spelling. The marginal improvements do not even align the countless bugs in the approach. Since I prefer to stay with the original ten times. I am currently helplessful and wondering how the developers have managed to worry about the game - or to worry exactly.

Life is Strange Remastered Collection has been available since February 1, 2022 for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One. An implementation for Nintendo Switch follows at a still unknown time 2022. If you want your desire for better Life-Is-Strange-Kost, then take a look at our test to Life Is Rod: True Colors.

The community Months Elder Scrolls online is not only very warm and helpful in Tamil. From 17.12.21 to 19.12.21 there were numerous charity streams of many ESO streamers. The project: Gather donations in the Christmas sense for homeless people. Here you will learn what the community, and we have achieved streamer together. Especially Christmas is a time of giving for many. But some people are repeatedly neglected or stuck in a bad situation. This stark contrast we wanted to simply weaken streamers with the event a bit and strengthen that together. I speak of us streamers because I was allowed to be part of the project and involved me with my streams at the action. The whole action was initially initiated by the Array's Charity Event last year. In addition, a part of this year's team has already participated in a fundraiser for the German children's creative foundation. Since the Arrays Charity Event does not take place every year, our stream team member Alex (known as Al
