I just played through TLJ and Dreamfall: TLJ. Am in Dreamfall. Chapters - Chapter 2 now.
I actually played Dreamfall for the first time when I was student, realized two weeks ago that Dreamfall Chapters exists, and decided to play through the whole saga. I have to say, I love TLJ, even though I played it for the first time 2 weeks ago, it was still amazing.
Dreamfall after that, well it inspired me to play TLJ and it was good enough to play through it again. But I just didn't enjoy it as much as TLJ, in direct comparison I mean, still an awesome game.
Chapters: Well I say, it is awesome so far, I am really glad the story continues. The beginning brought tears to my eyes, before I was unsure if I April was really dead. Love the narrative.
There is one minor thing that throws me off:
Did it have to be German facist? One particular thing I love about the Saga is how the world has transformed in the future! it is so credible how Africa, Europe , USA transformed and Japan kept some traditional values and yet is still depicted advanced. And it is so realistic. So why, just why, does the facist, racist, chauvinistic guy need to be a German again? I think Germany is currently one of the least racist country in the world (in general, I know there are some minorities who are super racist) but looking at current world order, there is a lot of countries acting more racist.
I just think, that it had to be a German is just so cliche! Because all the other developments of the future are not cliche, it feels like an immersion break to me.
Well I am just starting on the game and it might turn out he is a good guy or whatever, or maybe he doesn't play a role, but really just why ? In east Germany we had an era of socialism too, wouldn't it have been funnier to have a German Marxist and a Polish racist?
