Hey everyone! Welcome to the Graveyard Shift, the nightly hang-out hosted by Kotaku’s reader-run blog, TAY. This is a place to talk about anything - your lives, your gaming habits, or whatever else you desire. Hop on in and join the discussion! When you’re done here, you could always go check out the articles over at TAY or TAYClassic! Or, if this is your first time at TAY, please check out this TAYtorial!
I’m honestly not sure what’s going on for the rest of the week in terms of E3 things, TAY, but from how I understood it, we were pretty much wrapped up after Tuesday. Since the big three have gone, and the recently revived legends of Last Guardian and Final Fantasy VII Remake seem to be solidly tucked away to bask in their mountains of hype, I’m guessing I’m right—which is good, because I’m headed out of town tomorrow, and I didn’t want to miss anything super good.
But since I’m headed out of town, I figured I would stock up on a good book or two and a new game—but rather than looking at games that were hyped up around E3, I tried to think of one that I had missed in the last year but was meaning to get around to for a while. I just splurged on a Vita slim a few months ago, too, so I was leaning towards that platform for something to play. The last time I went out of town and used my Vita heavily, I played a lot of Virtue’s Last Reward, so I considered getting 999: Nine Persons, Nine Hours, Nine Doors—but that wasn’t on the Vita.
All of a sudden, I remembered that a lot of you liked Danganronpa—and that was totally on the Vita. I looked around, saw that it was semi-cheap on Amazon, and ran around trying to find a place to price match it for me. Long story short, I ended up grabbing it today and I’ll be able to play it tomorrow. Hopefully I didn’t accidentally grab any spoilers from you all that are going to just come to the forefront of my memory while I play.
So, amidst the craziness of everyone talking about new games, we’re going to do a topic I’ve done before: what are some games that you’ve been meaning to get around to for ages? Maybe you could share them and your fellow TAYers could be just the nudge you need to get started on them.
Don’t want to talk about old games? E3 hype killing you? Rather talk about that super tasty sandwich you managed to snag for lunch? Well then, as always, feel free to talk about life, love, gaming, or whatever else you desire. The Wednesday Graveyard Shift is now open!
