Weekend Gaming Playlist (5-6-22)
It seems that every year right up until the huge deluge of game releases in the summer, I tell myself that I’ll clear through a chunk of my backlog and be fully prepared for the onslaught. And every time, it’s the exact opposite and I’m drowning in all of the game releases. Some day, I shall be able to conquer these game releases!
When I first looked into this game, I was very curious about what it could offer. Text-based RPGs are a favorite sub-genre of mine and one that I don’t get around to playing too often. So, when I really dug deep into this game, I couldn’t even describe the excitement I felt after everything was fully set up. The game is what you make of it and the choices you make can reveal new paths forward. I honestly can’t wait to wrap this game up and write a review, because it’s been a treat so far.
This is a visual novel that my friend has been trying to talk me into playing for years. And finally, she has succeeded, as our makeshift visual novel reading group selected Tsukihime as the first read. I’m not unfamiliar with Nasu’s works (the creator for Fate/Stay Night). While a touch wordy with descriptions, I have been enjoying the crazy journey so far.
Crystar seems as though it falls into that genre of action RPG that initially doesn’t tend to grab my attention. You know, semi-generic anime action RPG with mediocre dungeons and okay fighting mechanics – at least based on the first couple of hours of gameplay. But it does have a charm to it that has kept me interested for the time being. Will the game continue to keep my attention? Only time will tell.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land
For those who don’t know me, I am a big Kirby fan. I love the little pink fluff ball. And while platformers aren’t exactly my thing, Kirby is the exception and I will gladly play through most releases. Kirby and the Forgotten Land has been amazing, to say the least. There was a tiny bit of apprehension with the fact that Kirby was transitioning to full 3D, much like my initial worries forPokemon Legends: Arceus. But of course, those fears were unfounded.
Pokemon Cafe Remix
Now this is an odd one, because I pop this game open a couple of times a day to clear through stages and slowly increase my workforce of Pokemon. I have a weakness for puzzle games and Pokemon, so I suppose on the surface, it makes sense for me to semi-diligently log in to do my puzzles.
And that’s my weekend in a nutshell – or at least hopefully, since I can tend to bite off more than I can chew. What games are y’all playing this weekend? Let us know here in the comments below, on our Twitter, or in our Discord!
