Two games, a combined 20 years in the making. And that isn’t even everything that has released lately! Needless to say, I think it is time for another What Are You Playing? Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!
My main gaming focus over the past few weeks has actually been Pokemon. I have actually managed to avoid every spoiler for the latest release. Meaning the only thing that I actually watched was the reveal trailer that showed the starters and legendaries. It took a ton of will power to not look at any of the new Pokemon, but it certainly payed off in the end. Especially considering how much Game Freak revealed before the games had come out.
Going in blind created an awesome experience that replicated the feeling I had when playing Pokemon games as a kid. Being able to see brand new Pokemon for the very first time in the game is very different from seeing artwork of them online, I could not recommend doing this enough.
The actual game itself is great too. I love the region of Alola, and it brought a lot of great Pokemon with it. This is also the first time that I have decided to play it competitively, and I am already on the road to building a team. Just yesterday I hatched a perfect IV Minior!
I have also been loving The Last Guardian. I don't want to say too much, since it is new, but it is definitely living up to my expectations. Trico is the obvious star of the game, and seeing something that big move the way it does is incredible The amount of detail that went into the game really is astonishing. From things like how the boy puts his hand up against a wall when he gets near it, to how realistic Trico feels. I can’t wait to see what the whole game has in store for me!
Final Fantasy XV has been seeing a lot of time from me as well, but I plan on keeping my thoughts on it private, at least for now.
