That’s it, I give up. I can’t keep banging my head against this game anymore. Not to bring down the mood, but despite my best efforts, this game has broken me, and honestly I shouldn’t be that surprised. Ghosts of Tsushima is a video game that encapsulated pretty much all of my problems with modern triple A video game development. And to at least recoup some of the money and time I dumped into this game, I’ll blog about it.
It figures. I made a big effort to watch as much anime this season as I possibly could, and it just so happens to be the season where I just couldn’t get into the vast majority of news shows I tried to pick up. I think I ended up dropping far more of them than I ended up finishing.
Deca-Dence was not a series I dropped though. Haha! Check out that amateur verbal sleight of hand. Nah, honestly, Deca-Dence has been my favourite anime of this Summer anime season. And one that I only ended up watching thanks to some dumb luck and forgetting to cancel my Funimation subscription.
There are certain video games that feel familiar, ones that coming back to is like putting on a well worn shoe. While Shantae and the Seven Sirens is only the fifth game in the series, and the third one to come out on home consoles, there is something about its approach, its gameplay that makes it feel like a game you’ve already played a hundred times before.
Whether that’s a good thing or not is completely up to your own interpretation.
