Life is Strange: Before the Storm Limited Edition

Without intention I was able to pick up the Limited Edition copy of the second season of Don't Knod's Life is Strange text adventure. (I was strolling through a GameStop looking to  buy a copy of Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, but sadly their PS3 selection has dwindled down to about 30 games).

Square Enix chose Nine Sticks to develop the Life is Strange: Before the Storm, which is set prior to the events of the first game, which Tom and I recorded a spoiler cast.


Quality matte finish cardboard was used. The inserts inside smartly hold everything together.

Since I really enjoyed the first game, and always regretted not having a physical copy, I picked up the Limited Edition for $47 on sale (usually $80 in Australia - US customers can pick it up for $29 USD as of the time of this writing).

Unlike many "limited edition" games, whch come with digital trinkets, this is one of the better ones I have picked up in recent years.  It comes with a hardcover full colour artbook, an original soundtrack on CD, as well as a disc version of all episodes of Life is Strange: Before the Storm


A music CD! I may have to pull out my Dreamcast to listen to it.

In addition to the physical items you also get a code to download the entire first game, as well as a bonus episode for Before the Storm. A few digital trinkets in the form of additional outfits are also offered.

In terms of value, I was hapy with the package, for impressions of the game, you'll have to wait until the next episode of the Game Under Podcast.
