Monthend Video Game Wrap-Up – June 2017

It seems like I’m in one of those phases where I spend a little bit of time with lot of different games. This usually happens when I don’t have a “major” game to focus my time on. Though Ever Oasis was nearly the only thing I played for the final week of the month…

~ Game Over ~

Life is Strange (PS4) – The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. But that doesn’t make the choice any easier. Sorry, Chloe 🙁

Zoo Rampage (PC) – Barf.

ArcaniA (PS4) – By the end, I’d gotten so accustomed to the game’s jankiness that I think I was genuinely enjoying it. But man, is it ever broken. Almost Bethesda-like, to be honest.

Spooky Cats (PC) – It’s a thing, alright.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst (Switch) – A very good Mega Man successor.

Chrono Trigger (SNES) – I usually have trouble with Lavos on a NG playthrough of Chrono Trigger, but I won pretty handily this time around, despite feeling like I was ill-prepared for it.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe (3DS) – I’ve rolled the credits, but there’s still so much more to accomplish. Is it worth the time and effort, though? I’m not really smart enough to say.

Anna: Extended Edition (PS3) – A free PS+ spook-em-up that sounded great on paper, but was more than a little lacking in practice. And yet it still lingers in my mind… how apropos.

Ape Escape 2 (PS4) – Finally completed the slog of a replay to earn the final trophy. I don’t know why I did this to myself, to be perfectly honest. Ape Escape is NO FUN.

~ Now Playing ~

ARMS (Switch) – I didn’t think I would enjoy this game half as much as I do, but it pulled a Splatoon on me. Also I’ve always had a thing about boxing, so that probably helped.

Ever Oasis (3DS) – What do you get when you splice together Zelda and Animal Crossing? A cute, colourful adventure-slash-town-building sim that never wants to stop holding your hand.

Resident Evil HD (PS4) – Watched Game Grumps play through it, and then bought it myself, because as with Mega Man X, I will buy it as many times as Capcom is willing to sell it to me.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch) – The Master Trials DLC came out on the very last day of the month. And so the cycle begins anew…

Magikarp Jump! (iOS) – I was almost done, but then they went and added more content!

Minecraft (Switch) – It was a battle, but I finally convinced my credit card to give in. Worth it.

Thumper (Switch) – Just when I think I’ve hit the peak of this game’s difficulty, it punches me right in the teeth, but I keep coming back because it’s so very cool and satisfying.

TPB: Greasy Money (iOS) – A little ashamed to admit that I threw some money at it to “win” an event. Okay, a lot ashamed. I need to exercise more restraint in the future.
