Hello and welcome back!
I told you that we would get back to normal and here we go!
PS4: Crash Bandicoot – This brought back all the nostalgia for me. I got to enjoy this with Mathew, and he had never played Crash so it was great to be able to show him a part of my childhood. I will say, some the complaining on the Internet about the game being harder than the original, I didn’t find to be all that true. The things I sucked at as a kid, I still suck at as an adult. I love the updated look to the game but the cut scenes at the beginning definitely threw me off. Overall this game lived up to all of my expectations.
PS3: Katamari Forever – After my post on Katamari Mathew and I were just itching to play Katamari. I finally had someone to play co-op and vs. with. It was great. But I think we both had more fun switching off on levels. I’ve actually only ever played Katamari traditionally, never on the drive mode. Neither had Mathew so we got to experience the chaotic-ness of that. Drive mode is where you go super fast and your ball is really hard to handle, like a super fast racecar. We both got terrible scores most of the time causing Roboking and the King to berate us. But we really expected nothing less. 😉
PC: The Inner World – This game is dystopian point and click adventure. Mathew and I made it through the first chapter-ish of the game with a few struggles. Which I was really glad for. It made me feel like a kid again when I would struggle with Putt-Putt or Spy Fox. The story is intriguing and the main character is very endearing but the not so good treatment he has endured, I find to be heartbreaking. I also loved that this point and click adventure didn’t leave out any of the fun nonsense clicks that I always loved in point and click games. ❤
PC: Euro Truck Simulator 2 – It’s crazy how quickly things leave you. Like controls and keyboard driving. I was definitely not so good going back into this. At one point I could not figure out my turn signals OR how to bring up the control menu. It was bad news bears. After a couple not so great crashes, I started to get the hang of it. Naturally that when I stopped playing. 😛 I honestly have far too much fun just driving around in a semi virtually. Great game all around. Side note: playing while drinking is next level difficulty and playing. BUT DON’T ACTUALLY DRINK AND DRIVE! 😀
Well that’s all! Lots more gaming is coming soon!!
Stay classy and sassy ❤
Hello and welcome back, wonderful people!
So remember how I have a habit of loving games that sound really weird and boring when described?! Time for another one of those!
Today it’s Katamari! Yay! *cue Katamari Damacy theme song!*
For those of you who do not know what Katamari is a game where you’re a little tiny character who has an incredibly sticky ball that you use to roll things up. Why you ask? So you can help make new stars for the universe. And because the King told us to. Now you get places in the level and there are TONS of stuff to roll up. The kicker is you can only roll things up that are your size or smaller. The bigger you get, the easier it is and more stuff you can roll up BUT you have a time limit and a size requirement to reach.
Here’s a link to a YouTube video to give more clarity :P:
Katamari Gameplay! *This is not my video, just a random one I thought was good to visually show what I am trying to explain!*
So the soundtrack to these games are amazing but very catchy. You will at some point have them stuck in your head. At terrible, random times. You’re welcome 😀
The games are cute, colorful, funny and really entertaining. It’s cool to see how size really affects perspective on things.
This game is one of my go-to games when I need to relax and unwind. There’s not much stress involved. It’s very chill. Unless you make the King mad.
Stay classy and sassy guys ❤
Talking about the old school Spyro games!
Hello guys! It’s hump day! YAY! I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July yesterday!
So with the recent release of the remastered Crash Bandicoot games, I thought it would be perfect timing to talk a little bit about my love for the OG 3 Spyro games on the Playstation.
The first three Spyro games were actually the first games I owned for my Playstation 2. I know, kind of funny that the games I got with my Playstation 2 were Playstation games. I immediately delved deep in to the Spyro universe and fell completely head over heels in love. Soon after falling in love with Spyro it was all I could ever talk about. I loved the enemies, the colorful worlds, the detail in the worlds but most of all, I loved Spyro and Sparx. They were the perfect duo in my opinion. This platformer, RPG was and still is one of my favorites hands down ever. I am constantly on the lookout for a game that gives me the love and feels that this game did.
I personally have a hard time with what they have done to Spyro over the years but I do respect it. In an ever changing market, there’s got to be ways to appeal to a younger audience or to appeal to the audience that has grown up with Spyro. The developers decided to go with the new and younger crowd and have successfully brought Spyro back from obscurity and with it, Crash. I know it’s hard to watch something that we all know and love as one thing be changed into something so different. We may all say we like change, but overall I don’t like too much change. ESPECIALLY when it comes to games that I know and love very very much.
I know there’s rumbles in the community about getting a remastered Spyro trilogy like with Crash but honestly, how would that look? Crash is safe because he was never evolved into something like Spyro currently is. It’d be too much of a tug-of-war for Spyro, keep him true to what he was or bring him up to speed with current Spyro while somehow still keeping the play style and levels similar to what it was originally. While I’d love a Spyro remaster, I think I’m okay letting sleeping spirits lie on this one. It’d make too many people mad no matter what the studio did. It’ll never capture the same essence that it did originally and I’m okay with that. We all have memories and they stay happy and shiny for a reason. Let’s not burst our bubbles all at once.
Well this favorite game entry took a bit of a turn there 😛 But I’m not complaining. Enjoy guys. Let me know your thoughts and feelings as well!
Stay classy and sassy ❤
