ATLUS photo
If you never give up life keeps on groovin'

What a thrill
I noticed the creepy janitor in Life is Strange slowly climbing up the ladder and thought, "Ah, I see, an organic, in-world time limit." Nick Robinson thought of Metal Gear Solid 3, which is always the better thought.   read feature

Jill sandwich photo
Maybe Jill's bra is just filled with sandwich jam
