I’m doing another “Games I Want To Play” post to highlight the next game I REALLY want to play, as well as offer up some progress on the last two games I posted under this series. The Good News: I’ve started playing through the first two games I mentioned, and they’re wonderful. The Bad News: I put too much on my own plate, and those games are falling to the wayside.
I’ve been playing Child of Light quite a bit. So far I’m incredibly impressed. It’s firmly held my interest since I started playing it, and I keep wanting to go back to it. Unfortunately, I schedule too many videos and articles, so I have to wait until the weekend to play it. That’s okay, though. I’m getting to extend my experience with this lovely little game. I suggest everyone try it out. I may or may not do a full review on it after I complete the game.
I started playing Mother 3 and I have almost finished the first “chapter” of the game. I’m surprised at how unhappy the story is. It also doesn’t seem nearly as absurd as Earthbound yet. Sure, there have been some pretty crazy moments, but the game seems a lot heavier in terms of themes and events than Earthbound did. That’s not to say it isn’t good. The battle system is greatly improved, in my opinion, and the story is still really good. I’m looking forward to playing this more, but like Child of Light, I’m kind of stalled right now. I really should play more games for pleasure these days…
Onto the game I really want to play next: Demon’s Crest for the SNES. This game is one of those expensive cartridges that are hard to find. Luckily for me, it has been released on the Wii U virtual console, so I’ll be downloading it. I decided I wanted to play this game after seeing Replay Ability’s excellent Let’s Play of the game.
In the game, you play as Firebrand, the annoying gargoyle enemy from the original Ghosts N Goblins game. This is actually the third game in a series starring Firebrand, spanning the Game Boy and the NES. I haven’t seen too much on those two games, but this one looks fantastic. You get a ton of abilities, and you get to explore lots of atmospheric levels for hidden items. It also doesn’t seem to be an incredibly long game, so it’s right up my alley. I can’t wait to give it a shot. Make sure you check out Replay Ability’s Let’s Play of the game if you are interested.
