Death Stranding unveils its gameplay at TGS 2019

Presented for the first time at the E3 2016, Death Stranding is undoubtedly one of the most enigmatic games to come. The outline of this game from the famous creator of Metal Gear, Hideo Kojima, is still unclear for many players. News about the game have not been quite revealing so far, and its creator seems to want to maintain the mystery, which makes Death Stranding an extremely anticipated game.

In addition to this somewhat nebulous communication, which has the merit of arousing great curiosity, Death Stranding also integrates a five-star cast, with several well-known actors like Norman Reedus or Léa Seydoux.

In any case, it seems that Death Stranding is beginning to unfold a little more since the announcement of its release date last May. Death Stranding will be released on November 8th, and we learn more today, not only about its history but also about its gameplay with the publication of two videos. The first is a cinematic trailer that tells us a little more about the story of the game. The action takes place in the United States, and the protagonist, Sam, is invited to a briefing in the capital for a mission that seems quite important. We don’t want to spoil it for you, so you can discover all of this for yourself in the video below if you want.

The second video was also eagerly awaited, as it introduces us to the gameplay of Death Stranding. Released on the occasion of Tokyo Game Show currently held in Tokyo, Kojima himself presented the gameplay of his next game, which we can discover in this video of about fifty minutes. This video is unfortunately in Japanese, and unless we are bilingual, we will have to wait a little longer to understand all the ins and outs. However, we can see a number of elements, such as fighting, and even boss fights. There is also an overview of the open world, and it seems that the bike is not the only vehicle that Sam can use.

Death Stranding surely has much to reveal to us before it is released on November 8, 2019, exclusively on PS4. You can, of course, check out the best prices to buy it via our comparator.

Cafe Crush Review

A mashup of dating sims and barista brewhaha, Drunk Bunny Games’ Cafe Crush has players stealing hearts while taking orders. The environment may be fresh, but does this visual novel provide a nice buzz?

Cafe Crush Review

A choice-driven visual novel, this title stars a character not doing much with his life. Burnt out on anime and video games, he gets a part time job at the Kitty Cafe after passing by. While there, he helps out Lily, Josie, and Emilia with taking orders, baking, and making coffee.

Of course, being a romantic visual novel, players have the chance to win the heart of one of the girls by the time the game is over. Crush Points are your best friend in this title – those who correctly do tasks can earn these points, and notifications in the top-right corner help players get on the right path. The road to love is fairly straightforward – taking orders correctly, knowing your coffee drinks, and knowing what goes into different cakes will get you a good ending.

The trouble is, a lot of the tasks come across as busywork. Taking down multiple orders isn’t difficult; it’s just time-consuming. Knowing the difference between a ristretto and espresso is also important, along with a number of other random coffee facts. Finally, get ready to be quizzed on different cakes and get ready to play a matching game. Though these activities do break up the bevvy of text, they sometimes come across as pandering busy work. Between the straightforward questions, the hint functionality, and the Cafe Crush notes, everything is just a bit too easy.

Unfortunately, the core dialog does not fare much better. Both the staff and the clientele comes off as one note, sitting squarely in the shoes of nerdy and preppy stereotypes. With hashtags like “hashtag OMG yummy,” the overexaggerated tones of this title come off as forces. Intimate dialog does not fare much better, with lines like “I’d rather watch real life” ruining the mood.

There is some voice acting to be found among the characters of Cafe Crush, but this also falls flat on its face. Lines are delivered without much enthusiasm, and certain characters have thick accents. One egregious example has a patron sound like he was speaking miles away from the mic – instances like that come off as amateurish and unprofessional.

The entirety of Cafe Crush can be finished in about an hour. We were able to get a good ending fairly easily, though there are different routes depending on the girl. There is also the option to experience “Bonus Content” from the main menu, but this is simply listed as “Coming Soon” as of this writing. The entirety of the story only encompasses a few days of in-game time, which comes across as odd when a girl confesses her feelings for you almost immediately.

Coffee addicts might dig Cafe Crush’s setting, but most visual novel fans will be turned off by its poor voice acting and uninspired dialog.

This review of Cafe Crush was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is formally announced in the West

SEGA managed to leave us shocked when they announced the next installment of the Yakuza series a couple of weeks ago. It is not that we were not expecting a new one, it’s just that in the announcement they revealed that the combat system in the game was changing to a sort of turn-based system. That fact alone left all the fans of Yakuza completely puzzled since nobody knows for real what kind of game is going to be. A great part of the attractiveness of the previous games in the series comes from the way combat is handled, and such an unprecedented gameplay change could turn the new Yakuza game into something very disappointing for many players.

We could only have a glimpse of the Japanese trailer of the game, but now SEGA has decided to announce its upcoming title in the West and we finally know that it will be published under the name Yakuza: Like a Dragon. We can also watch a new trailer that reveals more footage than the Japanese one and that also has subtitles.

As you can see in the video, Yakuza: Like a Dragon will introduce a new character in the series. We will leave behind the story of Kazuma Kiryu, and move to Yokohama to follow the adventures of another Yakuza, Ichiban Kasuga.

A bit more of Yakuza: Like a Dragon has been shown during the Tokyo Game Show 2019. The event started yesterday, and it will be running through the weekend and was the best place to reveal some of the new features of the new Yakuza game. We don’t say that because it’s one of the biggest video games events of the year but because SEGA has implemented so many new features in the game that it almost doesn’t look like a Yakuza title anymore, and maybe it will be only suitable for the Japanese public. It’s not only the combat system that has been changed; you will be able to choose between different “jobs” for your character, and each of them will grant you different abilities and combat capabilities. There will also be a lot of side activities, like kart races, pachinko, and dancing, and even though those have always been present in the series, they contribute even more to make Yakuza: Like a Dragon look like something more similar to a Final Fantasy RPG game than an action-adventure video game.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be released in January in Japan, and it should be available in the West at some point in 2020.

Civilization VI hosts an astonishing update

Civilization VI, the latest installment in the Sid Meier’s Civilization series, was released almost three years ago and since then, it has expanded its content with new leaders and civilizations that can be bought “à la carte”, but also with two DLC. With Rise and Fall, released in 2018 and Gathering Storm, released earlier this year, players are far from lacking in new content. But we have so far only cited the paid content, and it is quite possible not to pay to get new content in Civilization VI and just get it with the free updates.

Indeed, Firaxis regularly publishes updates for Civilization VI, and the one in September is rather surprising. If the one in June focused on the Gathering Storm expansion, the one in September will bring content for all players. This month’s update mainly adds a new mode, called Red Death, which is no other than a Battle Royale mode. Yes, it seems that the Battle Royale fashion keeps going, but which is, however, more surprising, is that we are more used to seeing this kind of mode in FPS. It can be interesting to see what it can add to a strategy game.

Civilization VI – The New Red Death Mode

Red Death introduces the main feature of the Battle Royale titles to the game, adding a radioactive cloud that threatens the players, spreading more and more as time progresses. In this mode, up to 12 players will have to try to survive, and only the last one alive will be able to escape from the planet via an extraction ship. You will not have to make your civilization progress, but protect your civilians. At the beginning of the game, you will face the AI ​​to get equipment and improve your units, but with the safety zone narrowing, you will also face the other players as the game progresses. Several factions with various inspirations are available in this mode, and they are presented in the trailer below, which does not lack humor.

Even if the news is surprising, it does not fail to bring some novelty to the gameplay of Civilization VI. Red Death mode is already available for all PC players. Firaxis has not yet said anything about the release of this mode on Switch.
