For my birthday on April 6th, I was gifted with Monster Hunter World for the PS4 and I have been enjoying it ever since, playing it whenever I get the chance.

Instead of doing another “First Impressions,” I thought about how it would be interesting to talk about how Capcom was successful in creating a certain feel or atmosphere that engages players to get excited about hunting giant monsters. So, here we are at the Canteen… let’s get started.

First Impressions: Okami HD

Published April 9, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

Okami HD is a high-definition remaster of a classic that was originally released on the Playstation 2. I will be talking about the Playstation 4 version, but you can also get the game on Microsoft Windows and Xbox One right now. Over the summer, you will also be able to play it on the Nintendo Switch. Okami is considered to be one of the best video games of all time due to its critical acclaim and artistic expression.

I am a few hours or so into the game now and I agree that it is great, especially for its timeless art style resembling what is called ink wash painting through cel-shading. If you’re interested, click the link to learn more.

Metroid: Samus Returns is a great return to its roots as a two-dimensional platforming shooter on the Nintendo 3DS. So far, I’ve gotten a few hours into the game and I’m liking it. This is more of what previous games like Metroid: Other M should have been like. Here are my first impressions…

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are remasters or definitive editions of sorts to Pokemon Sun and Moon respectively. As the final entries on the Nintendo DS/3DS family of handhelds for the franchise, Nintendo really put in the effort to make these games great. I picked up the sunny version when it came out, and I’ve recently completed it, so here’s the review.

Review: The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

Published January 10, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is a strange entry in the franchise as it goes through a lot of different emotions surrounding experiences of loneliness, hopelessness, pressure, and so on. Its Nintendo 3DS version is no different in that regard, and has only slight differences from the original N64 debut. I’ve had this game for a while, but I just recently finished it on the last day of 2017; check out Father Titan’s Essentials Challenge blog post featuring me by clicking here.

I don’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, but I’d like to get one eventually sometime next year. Some great games have already come out like Breath of the Wild (Still awesome on the Wii U!) and Super Mario Odyssey. Still, I need more than a handful of titles to truly win me over. In this article, I’ll list some of my wishes and ideas for the newest console.
