This is a long overdue post (because clearly I am bad at this arcadexpoints thing) but hey, what better way to slither my way back into the blog than with a post about an old game in light of its sequel’s trailer being released at this year’s E3?
Yes. Ina and I will be talking about video game crushes. Which is very appropriate for a Valentines Post. And by 'talking about video game crushes,' we mean 'mindless fangirling.' You have been warned.
Alex: Intro songs, or even better OSTs (hint hint), have a special place in many people’s hearts. I mean really, who doesn’t know the start up song of Zelda, or that jaunty little tune of Mario from the old game boy? It’s either a trip down memory lane, or it pumps you up to play. So Ina and I thought of another collab post about our favourite intro songs! I’ll start it, and in no particular order, here we go.
Judging by the lack of activity on this blog, it almost seems like Alex and I disappeared from the face of the Earth. (Spoiler alert: we probably did.) In my absence, I've actually managed to finish a couple of games (Surprise, surprise!), and one of them is Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls.
At this point, my love for the Danganronpa franchise is practically public knowledge. So, when news of a spinoff featuring Makoto's younger sister Komaru -- accompanied by Toko a.k.a. Genocide Jill of all people -- came out, I pretty much lost all chill. The fact that gameplay heavily relied on shooting didn't hinder me either, because IT'S DANGANRONPA OKAY.
I initially wanted to do a sort of comparison post between Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age 2, you know, really get into the whole how rushing a game affects more than the pacing the story, but really? That's not going to happen.
