My Week Unwrapped: May 31, 2024 – Vampire The Masquerade Coteries of New York, Playing Kafka, Wuthering Waves and More

Hi everyone, and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I’ve been playing over the last seven days. I spent a chunk of the week remaking another Adventure Escape walkthrough, but I still made time for some new games, as well as some more Wuthering Waves. It wasn’t a terribly busy week, but I still have plenty to discuss, so let’s begin.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York

I don’t know much about the whole Vampire: The Masquerade series, but I was curious about the port of Coteries of New York. It’s a visual novel set in a universe where vampires roam the streets and have their own politics. You play as someone who was just turned into a vampire and you have to learn how to survive in your new reality. I’ve spent about two hours with the game so far and I’m really impressed with the writing and the whole presentation. I plan to spend more time with it this coming week, so hopefully I’ll have more impressions for you. But from what I’ve played, I would easily recommend it to any fans of the genre.

Playing Kafka

Playing Kafka is a completely free narrative puzzle game based on three works by Frank Kafka. I didn’t know what to expect from a completely free game meant to educate, but I was blown away by it. All the dialogue is fully voice-acted — and well. The whole game is quirky, but I especially love how you pick Kafka up and drag him to people and items to interact with them. And as you’re holding him, his arms and legs flail. It’s just such an ingenious touch. The game is not long, though there is some replay value due to some branching paths. And it’s completely free, so there’s no reason not to play it. I also have a walkthrough here, but I still need to replay some chapters to get achievements I missed.

Wuthering Waves

I know I said last week that I wasn’t going to continue with Wuthering Waves, but Genshin Impact is in middle of a bit of a dry spell and I couldn’t help myself. Also, the developers gave everyone a free standard 5-star character of their choice and I couldn’t pass it up. I chose the lion boy, Lingyang, who reminds me of Gaming from Genshin. He mostly uses punching attacks, but he can also turn into a lion dancer for his ultimate attack and I’m enjoying playing him. I also met a character named Scar and got absorbed into the story for the first time since I started playing. I’m still not enjoying the game quite as much as Genshin, but I’ll probably play it casually here and there when the mood strikes. I don’t want it to become another game I feel obligated to log into every day, though.

Adventure Escape Mysteries – Christmas Killer

Christmas Killer isn’t a new game, as it was originally released in 2016. But Haiku Games re-released it in 2021 as part of the Adventure Escape Mysteries app. There were some changes to it and since I didn’t make a new walkthrough for it back then, I decided to do so now. You can see that full walkthrough here.

Genshin Impact

And last, I spent a little time with Genshin Impact this week. There wasn’t a whole lot going on besides a combat event where you take on more powerful versions of different bosses. It’s not my favorite kind of event, but I made sure to at least get all the rewards from it. Hopefully version 4.7 will give me more to do.

And that’s everything I’ve been up to this week! I also finished Dead Boy Detectives, which I enjoyed quite a bit. I do hope it gets another season. I also watched Damsel, which was entertaining enough, but also fairly predictable. I’m now nearly through The Fall of the House of Usher and will have to find something else to watch. Anyway, let me know in the comments section which games you’re playing and I’ll see you back here next time with more of My Week Unwrapped!
