Monthend Video Game Wrap-Up: July 2021

~ Game Over ~

Doki Doki Literature Club Plus (Switch) – It loses a little bit of its punch once you know all the twists, but still a “good” time. The additional content was worth the purchase, and the way that it was made to work on console wasn’t nearly as janky as I’d worried it would be, and actually added a lot to the experience.

Robo Recall (Oculus) – Finished this one off at long last. That final stage has been outstanding for months now, but I finally did it. It’s a super fun game, though I don’t know that I’ll go back to complete the extra objectives.

Shutter (PC) – Boop.

Ys: Memories of Celceta (PS4) – One of four versions of Ys IV, and the most modern. While all the Ys games are fast-paced action RPGs, this one might be the ideal fast-paced action RPG. It’s an absolute joy to play, as movement and combat feel great, and there are so many completion percentage trackers. Not to mention that the main gameplay conceit is exploration, which I think is my absolute favourite thing about video games.

Ys: Memories of Celceta (PS4) – Sometimes you beat a game and then delete it off your console and move on. Sometimes you beat a game and then play the whole thing again on Nightmare mode, because NG+ makes it seem less impossible. And then you keep playing longer still to collect all the trophies. Needless to say, I really like Memories of Celceta.

Pixel Ripped 1995 (Oculus) – A game wherein you are a child playing games within the game. It’s a great homage to the video games of the early 90s. Also, has an excellent soundtrack.
