The problem is that, as many of us know, gacha games are inherently exploitative, and even though I'm confident in resisting spending any money on them, I still feel a bit strange about the pull I'm experiencing towards such a game thanks to a seperate, supposedly stand-alone RPG. Should you play Relink for a taste of Granblue Fantasy's world? I think so! But go in knowing that it won't give you everything you might want, and take it as it is.
A game that gives you the rare chance to kick back and do diddly squat.
Neon White achieves everything it sets out to with remarkable success. Not only is it one of the most entertaining experiences I've played in years, but it also speaks to a highly specific audience many just don't anymore. It's for weirdos, misfits, and dorks. Neon White is one of the best games of the year, and it'd be a colossal mistake not to check it out.
Nickelodeon All Star Brawl feels like a bit of an underbaked experience. Some matches feel like they have an incredible, speedy fluidity to them, so there’s clearly something interesting there, but it definitely needs some touching up to make it feel more balanced.
We fight together against those who consider life to just be a game, we look after each other when we need it most. Long as it may be, I don’t regret any second I spent in Shibuya. The world is a big place, but NEO knows it doesn’t end with just you.
I didn’t hate or dislike my time with the Spiritfarer at all. There were moments of beauty in there, and in some cases there were such honest depictions of death that you don’t see in many other games. But there was so much more that I wish the game did.
You should play this game because it’s a good game, and could actually teach you something about photography. But if you looked at the last year and felt ambivalent about it all, maybe there’s a lot more you can learn from the red sky generation.
