Games I’ve Played Recently #2
Hey guys. I’ll probably make an update post very soon and than hopefully more post to follow. I figured I would give you guys a sneak peek at a future youtube video I’m making. This is Games I’ve Played Recently #2. If you have not read the first one, feel free to do that here.
Wario World (Gamecube)- First up is Wario World, a very fun transformational entry in a normally 2D franchise. Wario Games ever since the Gameboy were 2D side scrolling platformers. Even the modern iterations on DS and Wii were 2D, I believe. Wario Word on Gamecube is a huge jump into the third dimension where you play as everyone’s favorite Italian plumber desperately trying to reclaim his stolen treasures. One of my favorite parts of this game is how there are warp doors that take you to separate stages that are strictly platforming. These are fun, challenging and creative all at the same time. At its heart, the game is a very thematical platform collect-a-thon.
PokéPark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure (Wii)– Here’s a game I’ve wanted for about 5 years. I finally decided to take the plunge. I was really worried I overhyped this game. Believe it or not, I actually really liked Hey You, Pikachu on N64 but I cannot find my mic. So I needed my Pikachu fix. With updated graphics, better controls, a more extensive roster of Pokemons, pretty settings, and fun mini games. This game is living up to hype. Hopefully it continues to be awesome through the whole game.
Paper Mario Thousand Year Door (Gamecube)- Growing up, this was a game I held in high esteem. I put it up there with Ocarina of Time, Bioshock, and Mario Galaxy as one of my favorite of all time. I’ve only revisited it sparingly in my adult life because I just dont care for RPGs anymore. However, after completing the first chapter, I can say my childhood Nostalgia is not letting me down. The combat is still the traditional combat we all know and love from the early years of Paper Mario, the partners are great, the dialogue is really well written, and the worlds are fun to explore.
A Hat in Time (PC)- perhaps the game most synonymous with this channel. I’ve been playing a good bit of mods including challenge road, a Halloween special, and a new modded episode coming out very soon (That modded episode is out now. Check it out here). Check them all out!
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (Gamecube)- I’ve always been on the fence about this series. I played Colosseum a lot as a kid but never beat it. I finally bought Gale of Darkness over the summer and I’ve been playing this a lot when I go for runs on my exercise bike machine as it is a great time killer. The story is interesting enough, I love the atmosphere of Gamecube games, converting the dark Pokemons is fun, and you never know what you’ll catch next. I’m really digging this one.
So there you have it. These are the games I’m playing. Let me know what I should be on the look out for next!
Thanks for reading and have a great day everybody!
