All in all, The Touryst is a fun little game, with a lot going for it. If you have the spare money to pick this up, and want something quick and fun to get through the weekend, I would recommend the game, just don’t expect too a large game, and some areas may be frustrating. You will get a few laughs and a gorgeous looking game out of it.
Death Stranding is a game that has a lot of moving parts, and most of the time, those parts create a machine that runs pretty well. Even though the grimy in-game product placement and heavy-handed writing can cause things to grind and come to a halt, its innovative gameplay mixed with its unique online elements are what really keep the machine running.
It’s clear that Highwire put a lot into this game and wanted to make something special. The world is spectacular and I genuinely love the story this game tells. The game sounds amazing and I want nothing more that to just be able to explore this world in a more comfortable setting. Sadly all of that gets thrown out the window when you try to play.
These foibles were there, and noticeable, but I still loved the game. This speaks to the storytelling, which I would think is paramount in a visual novel game. Sure some of the character models were a little … off, but this is not some huge project. This game started as a Kickstarter, and I thank the people that supported it. I should also mention that there were improvements made to the base PC version to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch.
Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020 Tokyo is a game that has a fantastic presentation with amazing and colorful visuals. Sadly, all of that is a façade to the barebones and lacking minigames. Sure, some are hits, but a lot aren’t.
Afterparty presents a version of Hell that is likely to hit home for a lot of people, and ensures nothing is wasted when it comes to its writing. The nuanced characters and world will be more than enough for fans of the adventure game genre to enjoy playing through multiple times.
