And hot damn, this game has a steep learning curve. I went in expecting a souls-like game set in Feudal Japan, but the mechanics are completely different. It's very much based on twitch reflexes and snap-second decisions, with a good mix of stealth. I got so salty about its difficulty that I was regretting buying it instead of pirating it, but since I couldn't return a digital game I got drunk, gave it another go, and steamrolled 4 bosses in a row without dying.
It turns out this game is much easier to play while drunk because it slows things down enough that you have time to think instead of panicking.
I definitely recommend this game to anyone who liked the Souls games. It's very different, but somehow feels like it fits with them.
Bee Simulator, available on the Epic Games Store or the Nintendo Switch Store, is a really cute game about being a worker honeybee.
I think it might be for children, but I really like bees so it's delightful to fly around and play as a happy little bee. I've been playing this between levels of Doom Eternal to wind down from the higher stress / excitement.
The only downside so far is that the English voice acting is really childish and annoying, and since I wanted to simulate bees it's jarring to hear them talking intelligibly. I switched the audio language to a different language so I could play with English subtitles and it's much better.
