Akiba’s Beat Review – Break Your Delusion (PS4)

[embedded content] The early hours of Akiba‘s Beat, a new role-playing game by Acquire, had me feeling as if I had been down this road before. After all, if I were to tell somebody that I was playing an RPG starring teenagers that deals with them changing the twisted thoughts of others, they’d probably assume I was still playing Persona 5. It’s unavoidable that the two games get mentioned in the same breath, as their thematic similarities are startling. These comparisons are unfortunate. Despite being a huge step up from the disastrous Akiba’s Trip (of which the game is a spiritual successor to), Acquire’s latest can’t compete with one of the best role-playing games of the past decade from either a gameplay or story standpoint. That’s not to say there aren’t positives about the game, but the thought of “who exactly would choose to play this?” was consistently in the back of my mind while playing through the early chapters. That line of thought mostly subsided as I got deeper into the rather lengthy role-playing game. Once Akiba’s Beat started to put its own spin on the themes of delusions, dreams, and selfishness, things got much more intriguing. One of the most interesting hooks of the game is that the…

Ys Origin Review – Dungeons, Demons, Ys Oh My! (PS4)

The Ys games have a rich history in action-JRPGs, starring the silent protagonist Adol Christin as he travels across various regions across the world, including Ys. Ys Origin has none of that. Instead, the origin story explains many of the mysteries of the Ys titles, such as the demon influx, how the Darm Tower came to be, as well as the history behind the twin goddesses, the Black Pearl, and the Six Priests. It’s meant to fill in any blanks for Ys fans who want to know more about the history of the people of Ys and round out Adol’s adventures in the first two Ys games. That said, however, like most origin stories, Ys Origin doesn’t bring a lot to the table in terms of a typical Ys game. It’s not nearly as lengthy as the other games, simply because there’s zero exploration to be had. The entire game takes place in the infamous Darm Tower, and thus, it’s a series of consecutive dungeon crawls with nothing in between them. There are no side quests, no time to explore, no real crafting system; there’s virtually nothing to distract you from the monotony of running through dungeon after dungeon. Each dungeon has variety to be sure, but the pattern is…
