Miitopia Returns for Part 4 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!  This time, we will be rescuing our kidnapped friends and facing off against Dark Lord Mr. Bean!

Last, but not least, the Duck’s Access Key is: 5MKGH6B.  The available characters that I’ve made at the moment are: Crispin Whytehead and Dr. Loboto from Psychonauts, Swaine from Ni no Kuni, and Medli and Ghirahim from The Legend of Zelda series!

Helping the Fab Fairies in Miitopia

I recently recorded part 3 of my Miitopia playthrough, which saw the formation of my third and, presumably, final team.  This time, I created all three of my new team members’ Mii’s, with their identities being as follows.  Charlotte, the energetic cat, joined the team first.  She is actually meant to resemble my character from Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  After that came two characters from The Legend of Zelda series, Medli from Wind Waker and Ghirahim from Skyward Sword.  Seeing as I was trying to utilize some of the new jobs, I ended up making Medli a kind flower and Ghirahim a stubborn imp.  I had since changed to the princess job, and I must admit, it felt rather odd not being in charge of healing this time.  (That role fell instead to Medli, and she didn’t always stay on top of things as much as I would have liked.)

The new land we explored was the Realm of the Fey, a forested location where we appear to be the size of a bug.  Or perhaps everything was just really huge.  During this time, we fought turkeys with disturbingly big butts, my characters developed a strange obsession with tomatoes, and we assisted the residents of the Elven Retreat, including the three Fab Fairy sisters.  The faces I chose for them seemed quite obvious, as I picked the three goddesses from the Zelda series, Din, Farore, and Nayru.

We were actually joined by the Fab Fairies during this leg of the adventure (only one accompanied us at a time), and the additional help was quite nice, considering the game was getting just a tad more difficult.  Even so, our adventure has still been rather easy thus far, and I typically refuse to use the copious amounts of sprinkles (for restoring HP and MP) that have since been bestowed upon me because it almost feels like cheating!  I heard that the game becomes difficult at the end, and I rather look forward to some actual challenge eventually.

Charlotte and I watch some sheep float away…

While I’m still having a lot of fun with this game, I have to admit that I didn’t become quite as attached to my third team.  Maybe it’s because I already used up my top character choices for my first two teams.  Maybe I was put off by the fact that this team used some of the weirder jobs.  Or maybe my team had simply been kidnapped one time too many, so the desire to bond with them just wasn’t as strong.

Whatever the case may be, I’ll admit that I spent much of the Realm of the Fey looking forward to completing it and getting my old team members back.  I heard that, after your third team gets taken by the Dark Lord, you can finally rescue all of your previous allies and fight alongside whomever you want.  And so, I’ve just gotten rather excited to see my old friends again, especially Crispin and Dr. Loboto (I became a big fan of Psychonauts recently).  As for my third ally, there are apparently two secret jobs that you can unlock later in the game, so one of them can fill that final empty spot (in my team and in my heart).

Despite struggling to bond with my final team, and despite really not being a fan of most of the jobs remaining after team two was kidnapped (I still haven’t used tank, and I never plan to), Miitopia has still made for a surprisingly good time.  I’ve just grown a bit tired of repeatedly starting over with new team mates and having to start from scratch with a new job of my own.  Anyway, for the upcoming part 4, Karkaton, here I come!

Also, if you wish to use my new Mii’s, screenshots of them, along with my Access Key, are available below.

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!

Disgaea 4 Complete: Demo Review

Though I’ve played a decent number of RPGs over the years, one subset of the genre in which I have little experience is tactical RPGs.  I was first introduced to them during a short span of time spent playing the Shining Force games on this Sega Genesis Collection I have for the XBox 360, though I didn’t really play much beyond the first half hour or so of each game.  My most recent dive into the rather confusing world of tactical RPGs was the demo for Disgaea 4 Complete, the PS4 release of a 2011 PS3 game.

Oninaki: Demo Review

Oninaki is an action-RPG created by Tokyo RPG Factory where you play as a Watcher, someone who brings peace to the dead and helps guide them to the next world.  The game features real-time combat, and you fight alongside different spirits called Daemons.  As someone who usually likes games with darker stories, I have to admit that the game was a bit depressing to me, as the first ghost we encounter is a young boy who wishes to see his parents one last time.  I also felt that the cutesy aesthetic didn’t seem super fitting for the game’s somber tone.

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.
