    jp's Wolfenstein: Youngblood (PS4)

    [March 7, 2023 11:13:06 AM]
    I was looking for a "mindless" shooter to pass the time - and I thought, ooh, this should fit the bill! And it does, but it also did not.

    I hadn't realized that this is a two-player game! (the 2nd player is an AI if you're not playing online or with other people) It's got all the crazy that the Wolfenstein games now have - the WWII was lost to the nazis and so on...and here you play as "Duke Nukem" (BJ Blaskowicz?)'s daughters - or something like that. And they're both all gung-ho and trigger happy like their dad. There's some sort of resistance, they get involved, it was all a bit confusing but they end up in Paris and there's shooting, and - for the level I played - a giant zeppelin.

    I was having fun - but the game's difficulty curve was surprisingly uneven - it was all easy peasy fun and then - I died 10 times - and then it was easy peasy fun again, and then died a bunch of times. I'm not quite sure what it is - either my tactical approach is bad (but works with weak enemies when it shouldn't) or certain enemies are just an order of magnitude harder to deal with - or, there's some thing I should be doing but I'm not (e.g. use a weapon a certain way, etc.).

    The game also has a whole perk economy and weapon upgrade econonomy that triggers more perks and stuff...and it all felt a bit TOO much data for what I was looking for - just shoot stuff and have fun.

    Maybe I'm just a bit annoyed because I was required to sign up for an online account I don't want or need? The longer I think about it the more this feels like a "dark pattern". The back of the box does say that a Bethesda account is necessary to access certain features - but my recollection is that you can't play the game at all without access. So, perhaps all you can see/do is look at stuff in the menus?
