In Alabama, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office reported on Sunday that a county worker had died in a hospital after being hit by a vehicle near Hueytown. Earlier Sunday authorities reported the death of a Texas woman whose mobile home was destroyed Saturday night. The first obvious issue with this is mentioned above in terms of Warren being a sophomore with Chloe, given his much younger age.
See Sophomore Issue. The second issue is the fact that characters — namely Warren, Justin, Stella and Nathan — are present in the photo with Chloe even though in Life is Strange , dialogue or text messages between these characters seems to suggest that she did not know them as fellow students or even classmates prior to the original game's events.
A few other students we meet in Before the Storm are not featured on this photograph, so it can only be a photograph of students in Chloe's particular grade or a class photo. This class photo also provides the names of the students underneath. During the dialogue that occurs between Max and Warren in Life is Strange 's Episode 2, "Out of Time", Warren does not appear to know Chloe at all in even though they are shown to be classmates in Before the Storm.
Outside the dormitory building in "Out of Time", Warren will have the following conversation with Max about Chloe:. She's pretty punk rock, how do you know her? Chloe Price? We haven't seen each other in a while. Which begs the question—why is Nathan Prescott getting psycho on you? Other dialogue gives the impression that Warren does not know Chloe beforehand. For example, the text messages Max receives from Warren in Episode 4 if she kissed Chloe but declined Warren's invitation to the drive-in:.
She sounds hot so I get why. There is no mention of the fact he knows Chloe from when she was going to Blackwell, her complete change of appearance, or that he's surprised that Max knows her too! There are also a couple of points in Life is Strange where, if Warren knew Chloe from the past, he would have likely opened a dialogue with her about that it's good to see her again or even asking how life is outside Blackwell.
Not even Chloe seems to recognize Warren, as she refers to him simply as "your friend" to Max:. So in the original game which is set three years later, this creates a contradiction with both Chloe and Warren not appearing to recognize each other or know each other by name. When Max encounters Justin at the Blackwell Campus in the first episode of Life is Strange , " Chrysalis ", she has the option to talk with him about Rachel and "her punk friend", as Max does not yet know the identity of the blue-haired punk girl that she had saved in the bathroom earlier.
The conversation goes as follows:. As we see in Life is Strange , Justin refers to Chloe in a very vague way as Rachel's "punk friend" and as though he only knows her second-hand through Rachel. Yet the Before the Storm prequel game puts Justin in the same Blackwell student photograph as Chloe standing directly in front of her , furthermore implying they are in the same classes.http://dev-43.astralweb.com.tw/3636.php
He would have had frequent contact with Chloe as a classmate of just that handful of students. Also in Before the Storm, Chloe interacts with Justin at Blackwell and they seem very familiar with each other. Justin refers to her as both "Chlo-ee" and "Price", so he definitely knows both her first name and surname. They also are texting with each other in Before the Storm.
Stella will tell Max:. I've seen her putting up those Rachel Amber posters. Considering that Before the Storm features Chloe in the same class photo as Stella, and the class photo even features the names of the students, it seems strange that a student she would know as "Chloe Price" or even just "Chloe" maybe even just as a former classmate is regarded so vaguely as "some girl".
Chloe may have dyed her hair blue, but her facial features are the same. She would surely be recognized by Stella as a former student if they had been classmates. In Before the Storm , David and Joyce are currently unmarried and had started dating not that long before the game's events that are set in May Chloe is 16 years old at this time.
David is also about to move in to the Price household, which is seen happening by Episode 3. But in Life is Strange , a chronological timestream montage shows that Joyce and David were already married before Chloe's 16th birthday. A picture of a married Joyce and David appears prior to an image of Chloe on her 16th birthday in this timestream montage also see "Chloe's Blue Hair" for further information.
In an Episode 3 ending montage in Before the Storm , we see David getting down on his knee to propose to Joyce with flowers and a ring. In Episode 3 of Before the Storm , Chloe is shown dyeing her hair blue for the very first time. However, we know that in Life is Strange , Chloe had been dyeing her hair with a blue streak on or before her 16th birthday two months before Before the Storm takes place. To support this, an image is shown during the timestream montages which appear when Max changes realities and the old timeline gets overwritten indicating that Chloe had already been using blue dye in her hair by the time of her 16th birthday.
It would have made more sense if we had seen Chloe with a blue streak in Before the Storm Episode 1. To explain the chronology of the timestream, when Max saves William and the timeline changes into the alternative timeline , the following two images merge into one another:. The left picture from the original timeline shows Chloe already having a blue streak in her hair.
The picture that replaces this one in the timestream is of Alternative Chloe receiving the car she would later have an accident with. The fact that it's her 16 birthday is confirmed in-game by Alternative Chloe herself. Before Episode 3's release, Life is Strange Community Manager, Toby Palm, made a public statement to address the concerns of the community regarding this inconsistency: "I don't believe that it was stated that that was the first time she had a blue streak. It's just the first time everyone got to see that streak.
The streak is a massive part of Chloe and we made sure to make it fit in canonically. The actual background behind the word however, as intended by the creators of the original game, is explained in an interview with writer Christian Divine:. I go up to Oregon, Portland, and Seattle all the time. I'm there all the time, and as a Northern California boy, the word hella is probably one of the most indigenous expressions you'll hear. It's been around forever and ever, and around I noticed that young people around me were saying it again.
It was so funny, like wow, people are saying hella again. I haven't heard that in a while. According to this statement, the word "hella" simply is a slang word that American writer Christian Divine was familiar with being used all over the Pacific Northwest -- particularly Seattle, Portland and Northern California -- and he wrote it into Chloe's dialogue because he thought it is something a teenager growing up in Oregon would say.
This is backed up by the Wikipedia article about the word "hella", which explains that the word has been a common slang term, particularly in Seattle and Portland, Oregon. Moreover, Rachel mentions that the word is a "Cali fornia thing", when in fact, it is a Northern "California thing". While the word is quite often used in Northern California, it is rarely used in Southern California.
Because Rachel is from Southern California, it makes little sense for Chloe, a native to Arcadia Bay which is near Portland, Oregon according to the game's dialogue , to learn the word from her. However, while Rachel was definitely born in Southern California, we can't be sure she didn't move to a Northern part of California during her childhood. In her journal on Chloe's character page, Max talks about her lack of contact with Chloe, texts included. In Before the Storm 's Episode 1, "Awake," Chloe's phone clearly shows that Max has been texting her during her time in Seattle and had even initiated text messaging after admitting to being "bad about emailing".
Max had texted Chloe on the following dates in November 2nd, 13th, and 28th. In Life is Strange , when Chloe breaks into Principal Wells' office with Max, she makes comments that would suggest she has never been inside his office and seen its contents before, or at least never seen its current contents:. Fancy faux art crap. He must want everybody to know he has money. But no taste. I'm glad I was expelled Yet in Before The Storm , we see Chloe walking into the same office that has the same wall art.
Even the bronze bird is present and directly in front of her when she sits down in a chair. Deck Nine reused a lot of Dontnod's environmental assets to bring back certain environments from the first game, but in this case, when taking into consideration what Chloe says in the first game, an issue is caused by using the same assets for an earlier time; therefore, it would have made more sense if the contents of his office in Before the Storm had been different. In Life is Strange , Max looks at a report card in Chloe's bedroom which shows that Chloe was still attending Blackwell Academy up until the end of her junior year, which was in May The month and year is clearly visible on Chloe's report card, and Max can look at it and comment:.
She used to be a great student Before the Storm is set in May , yet it gives a non-canon consequence of getting Chloe expelled at that time. There is also no mention by the Principal of a recent suspension for "spray-painting graffiti in the parking lot" as was clearly mentioned on her school file in his office in Life is Strange , nor any mention of the "police reports. Being expelled in completely contradicts the circumstances of the original game, and the suspension although being the least non-canon consequence is over the wrong reasons.
Even if Chloe was suspended, it is not unreasonable to believe that she would be expelled anyway over the extensive graffiti she left in the bathroom. A student record is an official and confidential document protected by one of the USA's strongest privacy protection laws  and cannot be released without prior permission from the student,  so it makes no sense that a reinstatement is not mentioned on Chloe's student record when the principal has been recording other punishments even padding it out with police reports and its privacy is protected, anyway. After 20 minutes of pre-release footage of Before the Storm 's first episode was uploaded during E3  , concerns were raised by fans that Chloe was seen writing with her right hand which seemed strange for a character who was confirmed to be left-handed by a key member of the DONTNOD team and who used her left hand in a dominant way throughout the majority of the original game i.
In response to these concerns, Square Enix made a public statement to explain that the Deck Nine team "went so far as to individually count the amount of times Chloe used her right hand versus her left hand in Season 01 to figure out which hand was dominant" and that the results were "fairly split. The public statement also explained that Deck Nine "had long discussions about which hand was her dominant, and the writing on the hand and graffiti feature animations were created when it was believed that right was her dominant" and that these actions cannot be changed as they are tied to tangible features and camera angles, and fixing those scenes would mean recutting many scenes.
An instance of Chloe writing on her bedroom's periodic table with her left hand was inserted into Episode 1 for its release, but Chloe performs another action with her non-dominant hand that she performs with her dominant left hand in the original game:. It could also be debated that the hand she uses her lighter in may be an inconsistency, as most people will naturally operate a lighter in their dominant hand:. In the original game, we learn that Frank Bowers used to bet on dog fights before having a revelation and saving a bunch of dogs, keeping one for himself.
Max even comments to Frank that's she's heard how he "rescued a bunch of fight dogs",  and Frank replies to her, saying, "It was just the right thing to do. I couldn't stand to see those poor animals treated like slaves. That's how I came to own Pompidou. Real bad.
But he's dead now. And I trained Pompidou how to be my friend. I thought you would. That dog is special, man. Don't thank me, this is from me to you.

Just let me breed him later. It's also an interesting and uncommon pet name one that somebody is unlikely to forget in a hurry. It is entirely likely that Chloe could have told Max the name of his dog, so the prequel game causes a bit of an issue here.
Also, according to the original game, Chloe has been a customer of Frank's for a while, owing a lot of money, so she is likely to have remained in contact with him and his dog and not forgotten the dog's name easily if we are to believe that she came to know the name before the events of the original game. In the original game, when Max breaks into the principal's office, she can read several Blackwell Student Information Sheets.
The Initial letters of the names written within the Parent s field on Rachel's file do not appear to match the names James or Rose or even Sera whom we are introduced to as her parents in Before the Storm. One parental name on the student file appears to start with an M or R although it seems to closely match the M characters on other student files and the other name appears to start with an E.
As above, there are several Blackwell Student Information Sheets that can be viewed in the original game. There are two address fields on these student files: Address top right corner , and Home Address further below. It appears that the students with dorms have the same address which seems to imply a postal address for the Prescott Dormitory.
Students who are living at home while attending Blackwell or who no longer have allocated dorms appear to have a different address listed in the top right-hand corner.
For example: Chloe has an address starting with "44" listed in both fields and we know she is living at 44 Cedar Avenue. Rachel Amber has an address of "6 Sa? There is a piece of paper covering the Home Address field, but we can make out a "gon" from the end of "Oregon", so we know it is within the state.
As her address in the top-right corner is different to what appears to be the dormitory address on the other student files, we can assume that "6 Sa? Minor inconsistencies are defined here as anything that can be seen as: a simple mistake or oversight, reusing assets for decorative purposes, or things that are out of place or inconsistent in visual style e.
Anything that does not have a direct impact on the things listed under 'major inconsistencies' and can perhaps be explained logically. The pirate hat and eye patch both seen in Chloe's room on top of her mirror don't match the shapes of the ones shown in the picture from Life is Strange: Season 1 with Chloe and Max Caulfield disguised as pirates.
This is a pretty obvious inconsistency since the same picture is also seen in Before the Storm in the Prices' living room. In Episode 1 of Before the Storm , Chloe has the option to look at an old photo frame discoloration on the dining room wall of her house, and says, "Family pic used to hang here. I-- Wow I can't actually remember which one. For visual consistency, it should be called "discolored rectangle", or to be consistent with the original game, the discoloration should be square.
When Chloe goes into the garage on David's request, she comments on the framed picture showing Joyce and William having fun with food being the picture Joyce removed from the living room. While it clearly wasn't this one as shown above.

However, it makes the discolored rectangle more logical. In Before the Storm 's Episode 1, "Awake," we see Chloe using the same phone that she had decorated with Max two or more years ago as seen in Life is Strange: Season 1 's Episode 3 if Max had opened one of Chloe's bedroom drawers. However, there are differences with the decorations on these phones, as well as the general wear and tear and scratches. Other stickers on the phone seen in "Chaos Theory" are missing in Before the Storm , such as the sticker of the "chicken" on a red circular background that we also see Max wearing on a couple of her T-shirts in Season 1.
The sticker that looks like two Furbies or owls is a misinterpretation of the actual sticker in Season 1. In the dining room downstairs, Chloe can read the back of a photo of her and Max dressed as pirates. It reads:. This nickname is very likely to have been something Max would have known too, given their love of playing pirates together. Given the fact that she used the pirate lingo, she would have likely said "Captain Chloe Bluebeard" instead of just "Captain Chloe" if this was the pirate nickname Chloe went by.
The same magazine covers from Life is Strange: Season 1 set in can be seen in Before the Storm set in While this is because they are reused DONTNOD assets, some new posters and assets have already been created for use in Episode 1 "Awake," so it seems strange for the magazine covers to have been used. Chloe tried to call Rachel 18 times, meaning there is a good signal inside the Dark Room.
However, six months later in Life is Strange , it is shown that Max has absolutely no signal reception at all on her phone inside the Dark Room, forcing her to go outside to call Warren and to receive all the texts she missed while she was kept underground - very likely due to the thickness of the reinforced bunker's walls and its underground location. Possible explanations are that Jefferson installed signal jammers inside the Dark Room after Rachel's death, the storm was interfering with the signal or Rachel was using a different cell provider.
