30 Days of Games: Day 22

Clear - short story
Starting your day by waking up from a disturbing end to a dream is not the best way to go, so let's move on!

Day 22 - A game sequel which disappointed you.

Apollo Justice
Apollo just isn't as fun as Phoenix was, and even hobo!Phoenix is kind of annoying. I felt like the previous games, with Phoenix Wright as the main protagonist, were so much better, so considering that Apollo (as the new lead) was the supposed successor to the Ace Attorney games, it just rubbed me wrong. :( Least favorite of the main Ace Attorney games, unfortunately.

KH: 358/2 Days
You go into this expecting that it'll be the serious business story times with Roxas and Axel. Well, it felt more like the game's main protagonist should have been Xion due to how little anyone else popped up in comparison. The game was somewhat fun early on, but then the entirety of the game became tedious side missions all the time, which made it a pain to continue. I still don't know how I managed to beat it.
Excluding all that, it left a bad taste afterwards because it cheapened certain events from KH2, including Roxas' friendship with Axel. Do not want. For some reason, everyone came out of this game looking like a jerk to me, even moreso than usual if they were initially portrayed as jerks in previous games. This game is the reason why I have this mindset to avoid "filler" KH games that basically don't add anything to the main games' stories beyond one or two cutscenes you can easily find on YouTube. That's why I've since avoided Re:coded.

That's true, but at least it was somewhat playable, haha.

If there was one of these days to cover a game that's super disappointing and not limited to sequel status, I'd throw up Fragile Dreams for the Wii, which is a whole 'nother ball game. I could take the wannabe strip shows and fanfiction type story material of FFX-2 because at least I wasn't chucking the controller to the ground in frustration due to all my weapons breaking after using them a couple times each in comparison 90% of the time.

I wouldn't mind doing a Let's Play session if:
1) I had a decent microphone/recording device
2) video capture devices didn't keep making the computer crash

Otherwise, I'd be more than happy to make one sometime. :3

I forgot to mention that I still don't know how to actually capture gameplay video beyond what I see on the computer screen. I've assumed that I'd need an extra video card or something pricey + complicated. XD;
