Hi there and welcome back to this fabulous little corner of the internet!! 😀
Today on CollinswoahsCorner I will be starting a little piece called Whatcha Been Playing Wednesdays if you could not guess by the title 😉 So this will be a biweekly post y’all can look forward to. It will consist of me discussing what I have been playing and my thoughts on said games.
So let’s get to it!
I have mainly been playing my Wii U and PC with a little bit of 3DS sprinkled in for good measure 😛
Wii U: Paper Mario Color Splash
This is honestly my first real go at any Paper Mario game since Thousand Year Door (I know, it’s horrible) and I have to say, I LOVE it so far. It’s different yes, but not too different. I really enjoy being able to bring color back to the world and the new combat style. I think it’s great how they incorporated the game pad and the TV with the combat system. I have been enjoying the story line so far and most definitely have gotten a kick out of the humor infused within the game (mostly terrible dad-like jokes but I love those). Now I’m not too terribly far in to the game, I’ve only obtained one giant paint star but I really like it this far in. Almost all of my free time is spent playing this game, almost… 😉
Wii U: Yoshi’s Wooly World
So this game I have been only playing with the boyfriend so far, and as we live in different cities we have only been able to get about half way through the first world. But I have to say IT IS SO FREAKING CUTE! I love that you can play with two people (because we need more co-op games in our lives) and the fact that you can make your cute little Yoshis look like some of your favorite amiibos (yeah, we may have spent like 10-15 minutes JUST doing that). I think the total crafty yarn worlds are just amazing and the fact that you can actually pull strings to unravel certain areas as well as spit yarn balls to craft different things is just unique and fun. Now hopefully I will still feel this way as we continue to play together because I’m sure the frustrating times are still ahead (STOP eating me and making me into a yarn ball babe)!
PC: Finn and Jake’s Epic Quest
I am an Adventure Time fan (I mean, how can you not be) and when this game popped up in the Steam store I JUMPED at buying it. I happened to enjoy the bit that I have played of this game so much that I gifted a copy to my guy because everyone needs more Adventure Time in their lives. I will have to say I am a little disappointed in the fact that skill sets aren’t that different between Finn and Jake. I also reallllllly wished this could be co-op so the boyfriend and I could play together. I mean how AWESOME would that be? One of us Finn and the other Jake?! But let’s be real, I’d be Finn. Always. I am a fan of the enemies (though they can be QUITE annoying) because they’re true to the show. I’m glad to have seen (so far) that they didn’t just make enemies for the game. I also like that you can fall off the level you’re in, yes it is quite annoying, but I really like that you don’t just die. You just fall back to a previous level. Though I’m only one world in, I highly recommend this game to anyone.
PC: Frankenstein: Master Of Death
I picked this up on a whim because it was like less than $2. Thanks Steam sales! So I am big in to mystery games and have been looking for a new one for some time now but I never have been super big in to hidden puzzle click adventures which is kind of what this is. Okay, hear me out here. The redeeming quality to this game is that there is actually a story. And a pretty decent one at that. AND you’re not just doing hidden puzzles the whole time. You’re progressing through the story, through scenes and places while also unlocking areas while doing actual puzzles (and yes some hidden puzzles). For less than $2 I enjoyed a couple hours of entertainment and whetted my appetite for a mystery game. It not super time consuming and its fun. I call this one a win.
3DS: Pokemon Moon
So I haven’t played nearly as much of this as I would have liked to, but there’s always time! I think the dialogue is just funny because it’s over the top (as it should be). I got to pick my starter, Rowlett all the way! And I’ve played around just a little bit. I think it’s nice that they’ve made it a little more user friendly to those that this may be their first game but at times I think they’ve made it a little too dumbed down. I just miss some of the older games with how fighting went. It’s hard to put in to words but I’m sure if you’re a fan of Pokemon you feel it too. I don’t know if it’s an actual thing or if its just a feeling but I FEEL IT. Maybe my thoughts and feelings will change once I play more than about 2 hours of the game but as of right now, this is where I’m at with it.
Well guys that’s what I’ve been playing lately. Let me know what you’ve been playing and your thoughts on these games if you’ve played them yourself!
Until Friday, stay classy and stay sassy 😛
