Game I Thought Had the Best Graphics or Art Style

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 23 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is ‘game you thought had the best graphics or art style’.

This one is a bit hard because I enjoy many different styles of art. I mean, I could write about what game I thought had the most beautiful art style because it was the most realistic, or because it was all in watercolor style, or because it was quirky and fun.

Today, I think I will go with Yoshi’s Woolly World developed by Good-Feel and published by Nintendo for the Wii U. I know there is Kirby’s Epic Yarn as well but I enjoyed the filled in style of Yoshi’s Woolly World a bit more.

This game is bright, lively and fun! It is a nice change of pace when I don’t want to play a game that is full of super dark death and destruction. Let’s also not forget all of the costumes from the amiibo!

In Yoshi’s Woolly World, the Magikoopa, Kamek has turned nearly every yarn Yoshi into bundles of yarn for Baby Bowser. This causes the yarn Yoshi to be scattered across different worlds and it’s up to two Yoshi’s that weren’t unraveled to save the rest of the yarn Yoshi!

I like the style of this one slightly more than Kirby’s Epic Yarn because It has more depth in terms of color. In Kirby’s Epic Yarn, everything is a yarn outline, whereas in Yoshi’s Woolly World they are filled in. Yoshi’s Woolly World is brighter as well. Kirby’s Epic Yarn is mostly pastel colors which is great and it’s really pretty but I prefer the brightness a bit more.

Have you played Yoshi’s Woolly World? Which amiibo costume is your favorite?

A Game Sequel That Disappointed Me

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 22 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is ‘a game sequel that disappointed me’.

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

Generally I have a very open mind when it comes to anime, manga, books, games, etc. I’ll give it a shot if someone says it’s good (unless it’s something that’s just beyond my skill level like Call of Duty or something). However, there is one sequel that popped right into my head when I saw this: Chrono Cross.

Serge and Lynx 

Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed it as a game for the most part. However, I bought this game before I owned a computer and had internet and all of that fun stuff (man, I sound old). So, obviously I picked it up going, “Oh! A Chrono Trigger sequel!”. It is considered the successor to Chrono Trigger but not a sequel. There are connections to Chrono Trigger within it such as characters that are related to characters from the Chrono Trigger world, Termina still exists, and a few CT characters are also mentioned or show up as non-playable characters and other connections as well but I was just excited think I would get to play as the same group of characters. (Silly me!)

Kid and Leena

The game did really, really well but honestly, aside from being disappointed that it wasn’t a direct sequel to CT, I was a bit overwhelmed by two things.

  1. The amount of characters
    There are 45 possible party members and you CANNOT get them all in one play through. 45 is a lot. To me, that’s absolutely insane. Maybe that’s just me though.
  2. The lack of leveling up through experience points
    In Chrono Cross there is a stamina bar for your attack. Each attack or use of stamina will take a different amount of stamina and if you run out of stamina during that turn you will have to rebuild it by blocking or while other characters are taking their turns in battle. You can raise your stats a bit but once you’ve hit a max limit you can’t raise your stats again until you beat a boss. You can also increase some of your stats with armor and weapons, but basically, you only level up when you beat a boss. This made it extremely difficult for me to be able to get through a lot of areas in this game because I play for the story and I’m not very good with stats.

What game sequel disappointed you?

Game With The Best Story

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 21 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is ‘game with the best story’. (Sorry this one is a day late >.< I was really not feeling well yesterday D: )

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

There are many games that have fantastic stories but I think one that has really caught my attention lately is Persona 4 Golden developed and published by Atlus for the Playstation Vita.

P4G was recommended to me by a friend. She and I have a lot of the same interests so I figured why not? I rented it from Gamefly (I’ve since bought it from them), charged up my Vita that hadn’t been used in so long and started the game up!

In P4G you have just transferred schools and are staying with your Uncle Dojima and little cousin, Nanako for a while in the small town of Inaba. During your stay, strange things start happening and people are dying and disappearing. You and your friends wonder if this is connected to the rumor that says that if someone looks at a TV screen at midnight on a night when it is raining, the face of your soul mate will appear. You and your friends must get together and gather the strength and courage to delve into the TV world to find out what all of this is really about.

I was blown away. I was amazed by just how many people you could interact with on a deeper level as you got to know more about them using ‘social links’. Not only that though, the way it incorporates the darkness that people hide away within themselves was phenomenal. This game also kept me guessing who the true villain was for so long.

However, one of my most favorite things about the game was that despite whatever was going on, the group of friends, also known as the Investigation Team, manage to keep each other in good spirits and can remain humorous throughout the game, keeping it from being too dark.

I can’t say too much because I don’t want this to be a spoiler post and I’m working on a review for it as well, but I would say that yes, Persona 4 Golden is by far one of my favorite video game stories.

Favorite Genre

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 20 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is ‘favorite genre’.

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

3 letters. RPG.

I enjoy many other genres of games, such as a few shooters like Destiny and Splatoon, I enjoy platformers and rhythm games as well. However, RPGs are special to me because they often tell beautiful stories and provide artwork to go with it as well as allowing me to be a part of it. Not only that, RPGs improved my reading as well as issues I had with my eyes at one point in my life.

The vast library of RPG games out there is absolutely amazing and I believe there is something in that genre for everyone. I’ve played RPGs that made me laugh, I’ve played RPGs that made me cry like a baby and I’ve even played RPGs that made me go ‘wtf’.

That’s the beauty of gaming though, just like books, television, movies, magazines, etc. there is something for everyone. It’s just a matter of finding your favorite.

Personally, my favorite types of RPGs are the one’s where there is huge character development, a bit of humor and a tragedy within it. Not necessarily a character dying but some significant sadness within the game to bring out emotion.

Throughout this challenge, I’m sure you could have already guessed that my favorite genre would be RPG since almost every post has been about an RPG. Chrono Trigger, Xenosaga, Lufia II, Persona, The Legend of Dragoon, Final Fantasy, they’re all magical to me.

Picture of a Game Setting I Wish I Lived In

Hi, hi! Welcome today 19 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is ‘Picture of a game setting you wish you lived in’.

I ruled out a lot of games immediately. I wouldn’t want to live in a wasteland or a destroyed world for sure but I also really wouldn’t want to live in a world without technology at least similar to what we have today. I quickly settled on the Pokemon world.

There are nice small towns like New Bark Town as well as bigger cities such as Lumiose City with shopping malls and attractions. Plus, I could raise an Eevee and Eeveeloution army!!

What video game world would you want to live in?
