30 day Video Game Challenge

day 17) -  Best(?) Antagonist

Majora’s Mask - N64, 3DS

Anyone who’s played this game knows how unsettling of a  game it is, the ever looming feeling that everyone is gong to die all because a little prankster is in over his head with a demonic Mask. The game doesn’t just tell you it’s unsettling not at all (in fact it has a very cheerful front) you FEEL how unsettling it is. Majora’s Mask is an awesome antagonist, partly how it preys on the insecurities of the one wearing it, in this case, lonely little Skull kid, but he’s slowly losing any measure of Humanity he has to the mask.

About the Animation: 

So this project was actually lost. Like the file got corrupt(?) And it was ALL gone, not even a recovery of the saved file. So I had to redo everything in under a few hours…and overall I am very Unsatisfied with it, and wish I never started it  }:-|  Plus frame by frame animation is still out of my league But anyway, disclaimers aside…
Unico in the island of Magic is one of my all time favorite animated movies growing up. watching it recently while scoping for great Antagonists I couldn’t help but find some parallels with Lord Kuruku and Majora. both were mistreated by others, an evil playful attitude with a horrid Jackel&Hyde personality flip, both faces have that heart shape/structure, and I think Kuruku’s voice would make a great voice cast for Majora’s mask. but not so much young link and Unico…

¯\_(ツ)_/¯      btw The mask that falls would be the Fierce Deity’s mask

30 day Video Game Challenge

day 10)- Best gameplay

The Legend of Zelda (3D tittles in general, b/c they’re not all that different)

gameplay is a huge factor for me because before I’m a gamer, I am 1st an artist. so with that said a game better be worth my time while not taking up ALL my time. most importantly it must overall be fun to play b/c I’ve got projects that could be getting done. Adventure, real time action, blended with puzzles or strategy  and side quests. to me that’s the perfect equation and that describes The Legend of Zelda. non 3D Zelda’s are just as good but I personally prefer the full open space view to give me the sense of adventure. Let me admit something, I really don’t like RPG battle systems, BUT I love real time action with RPG elements. which is why I love Kingdom Hearts. If the KH series had no story/characters/plot it would still stand strong b/c the gameplay is a beautiful blend of fast paced action and RPG strategy, the only reason KH(BBS) is not #1 is b/c you’ll hit a point where you need to do the one thing that I don’t really like….grinding(but it’s still amazingly fun b/c of the command deck and command meld system)

Day 3 - A game that is underrated: Silent Bomber

This game is a big part of my childhood. Nobody I know has ever heard of it. My uncle owned it and I got to play it one day. It was so fast and required a bit of thought. I loved it. I wouldn’t say it’s the greatest game ever, but it’s the first one I played that I had to beat. It was also unrealistically difficult. I think this game was my gateway drug to Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden. It made me a masochist for difficulty.

Day 17 - Favorite Antagonist


Haytham Kenway


It hurts me to call him an antagonist but I guess in the story of the game that’s what he is.

Now let me tell you, I am not a “bad guy” girl. In fact, bad guys are such a bore, so cliche, and huge turn offs. Great, what good is a bad guy? They’re BAD right?

And then in struts Haytham, stealing my heart and then going “LOL i’M THE ANTAGONIST”. 

But when you truly think deep down about it, he’s only an antagonist because the group he is a part of, not for who he is. 
And the group he is a part of was because he was basically kidnapped as a child and brainwashed into Templar-ism.

Haytham is one of the most complicated, deep characters I’ve ever seen… and the greatest thing about him is that he does not think what he is doing is evil. He thinks he’s being the good guy, just like he was conditioned to do… He’s not a bad guy to be a bad guy, he’s a bad guy in relation to the Assassins.

Plus he’s half of my OTP.

A+ to the best Antagonist ever created.

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 2- Favorite Character(s)

Alright, no shocker here, most people that know me know my main fave character is Midna. She is sassy and rude but also helpful (In her own unique way) and strives to protect her kingdom. Sure she might piss off a lot of people, what with her constantly bugging Link on what to do or where to go or sometimes she won’t even be helpful at all, but honestly I love everything about her! She sacrifices herself for her people, and makes sure every Twili Realmer is protected and saved with the help of Link. Plus, come on, she is just too damn cute!

or

Alright well, aside from Midna, I couldn’t just pick one. I actually had these two men as a close second but I really just couldn’t figure out who I loved best so I chose both.

1) Honestly, Pipit is awesome. When Skyward sword came out, I thought knowing me I would love Fi more than anything, but than when I saw Pipit… I was done. Even if I am Lesbian, he is like the most awesome side character EVER! And let’s not forget *Cough* Pipit X Link *Cough* Yes I am very much into that pairing, very much into it. And seriously, when Pipit leans over as if he is suspicious of Link, you can’t say it doesn’t make you laugh every time.

2) Razputin Aquato, one of my most recent… well not THAT recent, favorite characters of all time. I actually came to know him from the Mystery Kids tag for Parapines and all that. I just kept looking at him like “Who the hell is this guy… and why do I want his goggles so much?” Well after actually researching him, I was happy to find out he had a game. So I went to a thrift store, bought it for a cheap price, and I was hooked for good. Raz is awesome and must be praised for his go to attitude towards everything!

30 Day Video Game Challenge
Day 1: First video game ; Part II

Spyro The Dragon / Ripto’s Rage

Still, to this day, two of my favourite games. Back when nothing made sense and I still spent my entire summer indoors. I haven’t changed. I remember needing a lot of help for really simple things because being the absent minded toddler I was, I forgot what my objective was and spent most of my time swimming around in confusion.

Day 4: Game Character You Feel You Are Most Like

Ben Paul

Everyone seems to forget that Ben is just a kid. He was older than Clementine and Duck so everyone expected so much more out of him when he was already a nervous kid to begin with. He’s a fuck up, but he doesn’t mean to be. He never does anything with the intention of hurting someone else and tries to do what’s best for the group but it doesn’t always work out. He felt that he was a burden and that the group would not only be better off with him gone, but that they wanted him gone. That’s why I relate to him the most.

30 day challenge day 18 “protagonist?”

Zidane Tribal ff9

I kept thinking hero? my fav hero? and not main character. cuz samus is my fav but she’s not a hero. and I like Zelda more than link and again she not a hero. looking up the word hero helped.

Zidane is a true hero, a selfish woman chasing thief at first but as the adventure goes on zidane….I have no idea how to explain this.

Day 15 – Funniest moment in a video game - Psychonauts - The entire game

This game is amazing. It’s so sad it didn’t do better then it did, because we could have an entire series of funny, interesting and well written platformers that are genuinely fun to play. I don’t think Tim Schaffer has done a game as good as this one since. You can get this in bargain bins, and on Steam dirt cheap. If you haven’t played it, go do so now.

Day 2 - Your favorite character.


It took me a while to figure out just who my favorite character was. But after a lot of thinking I realized the only character that stuck in my mind the longest after I played and continues to pop up in my head and make me laugh, was GLaDOS.
She starts out as an innocent and binary digital voice that guides you through the beginning of the game, but it’s when she makes that first sarcastic remark, you realize there’s something slightly different about GLaDOS. While the puzzles were a lot of fun to solve, it was GLaDOS that made me want to return and continue to solve puzzles. I’d explain more, but I don’t want to spoil too much of what makes her so great.
Do yourself a favor and play Portal.
