Monthend Video Game Wrap-Up: September 2021

~ Game Over ~

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim (PC) – This one is in the same gameplay style as The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin, and while I like it more than the former, I don’t think it’s quite as good as the latter. It’s a brisk, fun game, but a good quarter of its runtime is still caught up in level/money grinding. As usual, the soundtrack is pretty boss.

Deltarune: Chapter 1 (PC) – When the second chapter released this month, I opted to refresh myself on the first, since I last played it about two years ago. Three hours well spent, and I even beat the secret boss this time!

Deltarune: Chapter 2 (PC) – I had no idea how Toby Fox planned to continue this story, and what happened in Chapter 2 is nothing at all like I would have expected. But it was still excellent! And I’m happy that the secret boss in this one wasn’t quite as difficult as the last one… Looking forward to Chapters 3-7 being released over the next 999 years!

Beat Saber (Oculus) – I bought this more as a source of exercise than a “game” per se, but I did clear the campaign mode. So that’s a thing!

Tales of Arise (PS5) – It’s certainly one of the best “Tales of” games. The story is (mostly) interesting, the characters have a ton of personality, the gameplay is lots of fun, and there are a ton of post-game superbosses. However, the plot spirals out of control in the third act and it degrades mostly into hours of exposition. Didn’t exactly stick the landing.
