AL­CO­HOL­I­DAY

EDGE - - PLAY -

Yakuza Stu­dio’s finely honed knack for de­sign­ing gently stress­ful, weirdly com­pul­sive asides about drink­ing is in full ev­i­dence. When Ken­shiro in­curs a huge debt, he’s in­vited to start pay­ing it off by work­ing as the man­ager of a host­ess bar. If you played Yakuza 0 you’ll have an idea of what to ex­pect: sit the right girls next to the right pun­ters and use their spe­cial tech­niques to keep your clients drink­ing (and thus pay­ing out) for longer. A bar­tender job, mean­while, re­quires you to var­i­ously hold the DualShock ver­ti­cally and give it a hearty shake, cir­cle your thumb over the face but­tons to chip huge ice blocks into whiskey tum­bler­sized balls, or to rapidly spin the right stick to mix one of sev­eral cre­atively named bev­er­ages. Ine­bri­a­tion Of Souls, madam?
