Hi, hi! Welcome to day 4 of my video game challenge posts! Today’s post is about ‘my guilty pleasure game’!
**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**
One of my guilty pleasure games that I really enjoy playing when I’m stressed to help me calm down is Katamari Foreverfor Playstation 3 developed and published by Namco Bandai Games. To be honest, when I first saw this game being played, I thought it was the absolute dumbest thing ever, but when I finally sat down to play it myself, I found that I really enjoyed it!
Katamari means mass or cluster.
The goal of the game in each stage is to roll up junk, food, people, plants, animals, you name it with your Katamari to be used to create a new star. That’s basically it. However, certain stages have harder goals, like telling you that it has to be so many meters large, or that you have to be large enough to roll up a specific item.
Aside from rolling around and collecting everything I find the music to be amazing.
In all honesty, there isn’t a whole lot to say about this game other than it’s a great stress reliever and the music is fantastic. There is a story to it and it’s quite a funny one, so I highly recommend it if you get a chance to play it. ^_^
Hi, hi! Welcome to day 3 of the video game challenge! Today’s challenge is to write about ‘an underrated video game’
. There are a lot of games I felt could be great for this topic but some of them had longer stories to them that I felt I would need more time to write about so I finally settled on another SNES game,ActRaiser.
ActRaiser is a side scrolling plat former and also a simulator, some say a city simulator but I think village simulator is more accurate. It was developed by Quintet and Published by Enix.
The story is about the ‘Master’, who is essentially a god who had lost all of his powers because while he was recovering from a fight he lost, people stopped believing in him. The ‘Master’ gives the player a statue to control and to defeat several enemies with and then the player helps builds villages as an angel which help to regain the ‘Master’s’ powers and more people start to believe again by communicating with him through prayer. On top of directing the villages on how to be built, the player as the angel will also have to defeat enemies and direct the citizens to seal the monsters layers so that the villagers are safe again. These enemies can do many things to destroy the houses and crops you’ve already built such as cause earthquakes, steal the villagers and burn homes and crops among other ‘acts of god’.
After all of the areas have been cleared, the player then travels to Death Helm in which you will need to defeat all of the previous bosses as well as the final boss, Tanzra, which previously defeated the ‘Master’.
Once this has been accomplished, the angel will visit the villages again and see that no one is worshiping in the churches anymore and they realize that they are no longer needed at the time because the people feel safe and they return to the sky palace and await a time that they will be welcome and needed again.
I grew up playing this game and I have played it several times, however, I do not know of many others that have played it and I haven’t heard a whole lot about it. A sequel was published later and I’ve played a bit of that too. It’s a fairly short game so if you are into older games and haven’t played it yet, I highly recommend it. It is available on the Wii virtual console as well as the SNES cartridge.
