In the comic, we follow Life is Strange protagonists Max Caulfield and Chloe Price as they return to Arcadia Bay. Undoubtedly, some eyebrows are now raised … How plausible this premise sounds, is quite dependent on the chosen ending of the game. Writer Emma Vieceli is aware of this. She therefore states that the comic only sketches one of the possible outcomes:

Importantly, as with the game, it must always be remembered that what we’re creating here is one possibility out of many. … One of the wonders of the series is that every player may have taken Max and Chloe on a unique journey, and so distilling their possible futures into one mini-series is a huge thing. ”

Valve is handing out at least 88,000 bans last week

Valve has wreaked havoc with cheaters over the past week. At least around 88,000 bans were handed out last week.

According to SteamDB, 61,434 VAC (Valve Anti-Cheating) bans and 27,403 game bans were distributed on Steam on Wednesday, July 18. This adds up to around 88,000 bans. However, SteamDB does not check every Steam account on a daily basis. We may therefore assume that this estimate is still cautious. In reality, many more people may have been banned.

Waving the ban hammer is not strange to Valve. In July 2017, more than 40,000 bans were also handed out.
