VA-11 HALL-A is all about the booze you choose

VA-11 HALL-A describes itself as a 'cyberpunk action bartending' game, and while I'm not sure about the 'action' part, it's definitely a cyberpunk bartending game. Customers come by, tell you what's on their minds, and order drinks which you must mix. You can mix the drink you want or mix something else, and that acts, in a sense, as your dialog option. The conversation will go different ways depending on what you serve, and hopefully you'll also make enough money for rent each month.

I had a chat with Michael Kelly, who's composing the music, about how quality bartending can move along the story.

As Executive Editor, Tyler spends a lot of time editing reviews and looking at spreadsheets, and whatever time is left over writing reviews. People joke that he doesn't like 90 percent of the games he plays, but he'll tell you he just has very discerning tastes.
