  1. As someone who was disappointed at the forced writing and plotholes in 2064, I am bummed that the Vita version of VA-11 Hall-A that I was looking forward to is going to contain elements of that starkly inferior product. 2064’s visuals and music are a crutch that the writing and story bank on. While VA-11 Hall-A dives into how the world is flawed at every angle of the diamond, 2064 seeks to push obviously contradictory morals with a character friendship system that only gives you the option of conceding to your friends’ opinions or being pointlessly rude.

    I’m just kind of bummed it’s in a game I was (still am, totally going to get it) really looking forward to.
