Last month I wasn’t able to game too much becauuuuse we have a new resident in our home :} He’s a 3 month old kitten and needs all the attention! And if I don’t give him enough he tries to get it from my other cat who sadly still hates him :k But it gets better day after day ^_^ ♥ and the rare and short moments in which no hissing occurs are so sweet that everything’s totally worth it :3
Neo: The World Ends With You
played on Switch
After 14 years it's finally there: the long awaited sequel to my most favorite game of all time. While the first few hours ingame still felt so... surreal to me, Neo is a true worthy follow up to TWEWY. The music is a blast! The atmosphere is the exact same as from the original. The characters are again crazy but very likable. And the game makes sure to treat familiar players as well as people who have never heard about TWEWY to get into the story.
The story may wasn't as good as in the original but it was still a very good one. Again, players find themself in the Reaper's Game of Shibuya – a game that determines if the players are worthy of a resurrection. So yes, despite that they are already dead their life is still on the line. But obviously there are lots and tons of twists there, and I won't name any of them to not destroy the fun.
I was so much afraid about the gameplay when watching the trailers. It looked so... hectic? And it is basically button smashing, but boy, it is so. much. fun. Square Enix really made sure to make this game as unique as the original in gameplay, in music, in story. And it gorgeously worked.
The Hanged Man
And with this, I finally and sadly finished the Something-Man series. Although I didn't like The Hanged Man as much as The Crooked Man or The Boogie Man I am sad that the series is over for now. Overall I really enjoyed playing the titles. For The Hanged Man I found the... not really the puzzles, but the orientation a bit more difficult. The game requires you to go back and fourth and back again, going to rooms or halls you already were before and thus normally wouldn't consider to go back to them without any hint of needing to. Needless to say, I found myself lost a couple of times, especially because most of the rooms were empty and in the end useless so they idea to go back to any of them didn't really come up. So I often needed to use a guide to where to head next.
With the knowledge of where to go next the game is extremely short. I figured during my second playthrough which nearly took me a hour to finish. The story tho, even if it wasn't that spooky overall, was very likable. It's about Will who runs away from home and breaks into an old psychiatry where he unfortunately loses his best friend – a talking rat. Will then goes on the search for him, despite the strange atmosphere, appearance of ghosts and the discovery of murders that took place in this building.
Coming to a conclusion, I still liked The Boogie Man (which I still need to 100% btw) the most. So: Boogie Man > Crooked Man > Hanged Man > Sand Man
