Saturday Suggestion – Game: Kingdom Hearts Series

An action RPG has done the impossible: marrying Disney and Final Fantasy. Being a huge Disney fan, and just getting my feet wet with Final Fantasy, I was super interested in picking up this game. The tale of Kingdom Hearts is a wholesome one, though a bit complicated. Simply put, it’s the “story of Light overcoming Darkness with the power of Friendship.” — A Geeky Gal (Video Game Challenge Day 28)

VGC Day 24: What game had a big emotional impact on you?

VGC Day 24: What game had a big emotional impact on you?

On Day 7, I mentioned Heavy Rain. Heavy Rain will be the only game repeated in my 30 day challenge for one reason only: the emotional impact it left on me.

I had never played a game like Heavy Rain before and went into it completely blind. In fact, I picked up a used copy from GameStop, and the associate said he loved it. With a recommendation so high from a Game Stop employee, I figured it was worth a shot. After all, I do have a fascination with serial killers.

Heavy Rain is about four separate protagonists and the Origami Killer, a serial killer who uses long periods of rainfall to slowly drown his victims. Each of these protagonists have a choice-driven story and can die based on how you play the game. These protagonists are Ethan Mars, Norman Jayden, Madison Paige, and Scott Shelby.

Without spoiling the ending(s), the interactive story telling very much sucks you in. I beat this game in about a week (that’s with taking breaks from so many emotional scenes). You are these characters and watching their stories unfold to save a child’s life hits home in more ways than one.

Why Can’t They Just ‘Say I Love You’? [Review]

My boyfriend and I started Say I Love You while being long distance and wanting a show to watch together that we could both easily access. Say I Love You came recommended by the internet and was on Netflix for us so we decided to give it a chance, and I am so glad we did! It’s a very cute and sweet romance anime focuses on high school students Mei and Yamato as they navigate first love trials and triumphs.
