I really enjoyed The Invisible Hours. it's a VR game by Tequila Works (Sexy Brutale, RiME) that's a nonlinear murder mystery where you can rewind and fast forward time and follow people around, kind of like Tacoma. There's some silly bullshit in the end, but what I like about the game is how you can watch people come to their different conclusions on the murder based on their own perspective and what they happen to witness/discover. Basically a lot of valid theories get passed around that are only invalidated by the fact that you have the omniscience from time control and seeing everything.

Yakuza 6 owned and I'm sad that when Kiwami 2 comes out we'll have caught up with Japan and have to go back to a a couple of years between games.
Fist of the Northstar could alleviate that though...

I'm playing Shatae Half-Genie Hero and it's a cool retro game. Too bad the sequel apparently dropped the pixel art, tho I'll probably try it anyway.

Lumines Remastered is supposed to come out some time this month and a new big patch for Final Fantasy 14 with a new mystery dungeon mode could be cool, but I just want more Lumines and I want it on my Switch.

I think you mean Pirate's Curse (or maybe Risky's Revenge). HGH didn't have pixel art

This is where I would talk about UFS, but nobody cares about Non-Digital Card Games nowadays. Unless it's Magic, Pokémon, or Final Fantasy (or whatever Living Card Game is the flavor of the year) that is.

So, instead, I'd talk about GITADORA/GuitarFreaks & DrumMania, but nobody cares about a Japanese Band-Style Rhythm Game. Even among the (Western) Japanese Rhythm Game communities, no one cares about it.

...so, I'll just say that the Yakuza series is great. Been following since the PS2 days, and so glad that the series has finally found the audience it deserves.

Kiryu is best dad.

[If, for some reason, anyone is curious about the other things I mentioned, I can talk about 'em. I just typically expect indifference and lack of interest.]

I'm turning 27 on the 27th. Bleh

Anyone else got a bday this month? Any plans or anything? I'm probably just gonna chill at home, if nothing bad happens then it'll be a good bday. I'll hopefully be getting on disability sometime within the next couple of months too so if that happens that'll be nice.


KCB's bday is on the 14th of June though, so I should probably start thinking up something to get her. I dunno what though. If I get on the disability before her bday comes around, I can at least get her something out of my own pocket, but idk if there are any steam games she wants at the moment that I can use my trading card money for.

What's everyone else up to?
