I believe there’s 2 main camps with Persona 5. One is “JRPGS are bad besides Final Fantasy 7 and Persona 5.”. Two is “This game is actually not that great. The games story is boiler plate. Also it’s still really problematic.” The right camp here number 2. The problem is I still find myself sometimes sneaking over to the other camp. Which I know is wrong. Its just I really like this game even though its not that great. Continue reading “Game of the Year Number 6. Persona 5”
Dear Friend theirs spoilers for every Danganrnopa game here.
I beat Danganrnopa V3 awhile ago. It’s only starting to sit with me. I’m probably going to be unsure about my feelings on it for awhile. So I decide to write you this letter. Get my thoughts straight. I think you like these games right? I don’t know. Anyway I was doing pretty bad the night I beat this game. So of course I decided to beat the murder teen game. I thought it was a good idea. It always ends with pretty nice power of friendship saves the day moments. If only everything could end that way. It’s a classic staple Anime ending. You know why? Its always great. My expectations on what that ending was wrong though.. Like really wrong. I actually don’t know if you beat the game yet. We haven’t been keeping up recently. Here I’ll write about the game as a whole in case you haven’t.
Mario Odyssey is the biggest kiddie pool ever. You sit in it look around and all you can see is endless water. Everywhere you go the water doesn’t get deeper than 4 feet. You keep on growing up and soon the pool is too small for you. You’re ready to do crazy somersaults but the pool doesn’t give you the ability to do this. So you become content to doggy paddle though the pool for the rest of your days.
Supergiant Games are probably one of the most well-known indie developers today. They hit it off pretty well with Bastion. Bastion was an isometric action game where you travel though a destroyed world while an old man narrates everything you do. It was one of my favorite games that year. Then 3 years later they released Transistor which was a game where you stopped time to queue up moves with a talking sword. It was also one of my favorite games of that year. Now Pyre is here. It’s a visual novel slash 3v3 sports game. It’s also again one of my favorite games this year. I think what I’m trying to say is Supergiant makes a great weird game every 3 years and that’s really cool.
One of my favorite things in Prey is the morality system. Now players Prey Twenty-Seventeen are probably thinking. “Prey doesn’t have a morality system.” Too which I say. Prey wants to make you think there’s no morality system. And that’s why it’s one of my favorite things in it. I like to think video games are getting better with morality systems. Hopefully were past the days where its ether picking red or blue. Not to say Prey is the end all be all or the greatest system to date. But it’s a nice step.
OK 2017 was pretty good. For Video Games. Everything else was a burning trash fire outside of that one Randels by that apartment complex you only lived in for a few months before moving again. Then you drive by it years later, and for some reason old men with more money than you will ever have with vintage cars hang out in front of it…. But Video Games. Pretty Good. Like tradition calls I went to a Starbucks and ranked them between 1 through 10. Today though I’m going to talk about the games not in the top 10 list. Because good games sometimes come after the number 10.
I’m pacing around my room again. It’s the third time this week. Today its the Giant Bombcast. Someone’s confused about NieR Automata. I’m in shambles. I’m speaking softly but angrily to myself. “There’s only 5 endings that mater the rest are joke endings. Its more like routes” They don’t hear me. It’s the third time this week that no one responded to my silent screams. NieR Automata just came out in the U.S. Websites are starting to talk about it. It’s always one person trying to explain a game they haven’t beat to people who are confused about some aspect of it. It’s driving me up a wall I’m going to take a walk, and try not to be mad about people talking about video games. I won’t
Wolfenstein The New Colossus is a game about fighting back. It’s about being kicked to the ground multiple times then standing back up and taking another swing at a monster twice your size. The first person you fight back against is actually twice your size. Wolfenstein 2 includes a number of flashbacks in it. BJs dad bursts into the room ready to beat you again in one of the first ones. This time for befriending a black girl. But it’s always something isn’t it. BJ mom stands up for him this time though, but quickly gets knocked out. Your dog then gets kicked against the wall for defending her. The game then gives a young BJ a chance to fight back. BJ throws whatever he can find at his dad. He swats them away like its nothing even taunting you. He catches you and starts to choke BJ. As he chokes BJ you do get a chance to hit back. It’s just a scratch though it doesn’t change anything. The end result is still the same you, your mom, and the family dog on the ground. The flashbacks with BJ’s dad only get worse from there. Besides for one moment though.
