Miitopia Returns for Part 3 on Virtual Bastion

Miitopia is back, the cute and silly RPG where all of the roles are played by Mii characters, including the Dark Lord, who has been stealing everyone’s faces and putting them on monsters!  Last time, the Duck ventured through the desert with Dr. Loboto, Swaine, and Glamrock Freddy!  This time, we’ll be exploring the Realm of the Fey with a brand new team!

Dr. Loboto, Swaine, and Freddy Join the Duck in Miitopia

I’m still working my way through Miitopia, a charming RPG where you can choose the faces of every character in the game.  Very soon, our Youtube playthrough shall be taking a break, which will be temporary or permanent depending on the views.  I’ve already written a review about the demo, and now I’d like to write a little update concerning my experience with the next chunk of Miitopia.  Spoilers ahead, though…is the story of Miitopia really that important?

The Duck’s Miitopia Access Key

I’ve never really been a big fan of Nintendo’s Mii’s.  You know, those simple customizable characters that debuted many years ago on the Wii.  I guess I was just never interested in making a character that resembled myself.  Thanks to Miitopia, however, my opinion changed the moment I created my very first Mii that was based not on myself, but rather, on one of my new favorite characters, Crispin Whytehead from Psychonauts!  Mii’s just became a lot more appealing once I started basing them on fictional characters rather than real people!

Miitopia: Demo Review

Miitopia is one of those surprising games that I never really expected to like.  I originally watched a partial playthrough of the original 3DS version on Youtube as part of Peanut Butter Gamer’s old PB&Jeff series.  Seeing as I never really liked the Mii characters that Nintendo had been pushing since the Wii days, I was initially skeptical.  But it wasn’t long before I had fallen in love with this silly RPG’s charms.  So when the game was remastered for the Switch, I jumped at the chance to download the demo and try it for myself.

Portal Knights: Demo Review

My first impression upon starting the Portal Knights demo was that it felt a lot like Minecraft with RPG elements.  The game is described as a sandbox RPG, and the world is split up into a bunch of randomly-generated islands, though the demo only had us exploring one island after I spent a good deal of time customizing my character’s appearance and choosing between a class of Warrior, Ranger, and Mage.

World of Final Fantasy: Demo Review

World of Final Fantasy is a game I’ve had a passing interest in for the last couple of years, even though I knew nothing about it, except for the vague notion that it featured Final Fantasy characters from across the franchise.  It wasn’t until quite recently, however, that I decided to check out the “Dungeon Demo”, which enlightened me to the fact that this game seems to be a mix of Final Fantasy and Pokemon.

Earthlock: Demo Review

As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs.  Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide if this is a game I want to spend a lot of time with.  One such RPG that stood out to me was Earthlock.

Child of Light: An Excellent RPG for Those Pressed for Time

More often than not, a game with an interesting art style is a surefire way to grab my attention.  While this is most certainly not the only criteria one should consider when perusing their gaming options, it has also led me to such interesting titles as Okami, GRIS, and Cuphead, all of which are excellent games in their own right.  Another such game was Child of Light, whose pink-haired protagonist immediately caught my notice.  Interest piqued, I originally passed this game up on the Wii U because of the console’s limited hard drive space, only to end up buying it for the slightly more spacious Switch.
