Character Spotlight: Mr. Resetti

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

We’ve come to the end of another month. It’s the last Tuesday, which means it’s time for another character spotlight.

Character Spotlight: Mr. Resetti | Animal Crossing | Nintendo | DoublexJump.com

Mr. Resetti, or also known as just Resetti, is a mole character in the Animal Crossing series. He’s not a playable character or even a villager. He’s just an NPC who will yell at you if you turn off your game without saving.

In the original Animal Crossing game for the Nintendo Gamecube, Resetti goes on and on and on yelling at you for not saving your game. You can’t do anything about it, either. You can’t play the game until he’s done and trust me, it takes a while.

In the latest Animal Crossing game, New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS, apparently he asks why you didn’t save. The length of his lecture will vary depending on the answer you choose. I’ve never done this because I’ve never wanted to cross paths with him again.

Still, I do like Resetti. He was an interesting addition to the game and also a great motive to people to save their game… unless, of course, you think it’s funny so you don’t save on purpose just to see him.

Do you enjoy Resetti’s company? Let me know in the comments below!

Character Spotlight: Detective Pikachu

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Yeah, yeah… I know you’re all probably sick of me talking about Detective Pikachu, but I can’t help it. I love this game. Sue me.

Detective Pikachu | Character Spotlight | Pokemon | Nintendo | DoublexJump.com

Detective Pikachu is a special kind of Pikachu who can talk and has skills of a sleuth. While the species Pikachu made its first appearance in 1996, Detective Pikachu is brand new to us making an appearance in March 2018. (Unless you’re in Japan in which case you’ve known Detective Pikachu for an extra two years.)

While I had to get used to his voice, Detective Pikachu is an awesome character. He’s a little corny at times, being part of the Pokemon franchise, but he’s witty, sarcastic, and hilarious.

Plus, he loves coffee. Anyone who loves coffee as much as I do is okay in my book.

I’ve taken such a liking to him and, while it is still weird that he talks, I’m hoping they come out with a Detective Pikachu 2. At the very least, we’ll see him on the big screen.

Do you love the character Detective Pikachu too? Have you played the game yet? Let me know in the comments below!

Character Spotlight: Pikachu

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

It’s kind of hard to believe another month had already come and gone. A new game was recently released, a game I’ve been waiting for a long time starring a fan favorite from Pokemon.

Character Spotlight: Pikachu | Gaming | Nintendo | Pokemon | Video Games | DoublexJump.com

Pikachu is #25 in the National Pokedex. He’s a fan favorite and loved by all. I wonder if he would get all the attention he does if he wasn’t chosen to be Ash’s main Pokemon in the anime. He originated in the Kanto region, the original region that started Pokemon way back when.

Pikachu’s latest appearance is, of course, Detective Pikachu. This is a game that was announced a couple years ago and I’ve been waiting ever so patiently for it ever since. Pikachu loves the spotlight and now he’s fighting crime.

He’s the type of character that, I’ll admit, I thought I would get sick of. If only because there’s a lot of hype about him and he gets a lot of attention by being Ash’s sidekick. He’s just so cute and loveable though. Not just in Pokemon either. He’s great in Super Smash Bros. and Pokken Tournament.

Pikachu is an iconic character not just in Pokemon but also for Nintendo and gaming itself.

Character Spotlight: Isabelle

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Today’s Character Spotlight is a character I think we all know and love from a franchise most of us love dearly.

Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Character Spotlight | Nintendo | DoublexJump.com

Isabelle is a fan favorite though she’s not in too many games. She’s a dog who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS originally released on November 8, 2012. Since then she’s appeared in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS originally released on July 30, 2015, as well as DLC for Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Wii U in 2014 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch in 2017. That’s it.

Isabelle assists the player in New Leaf as they take on their role as mayor. She’s friendly and respectful though she doesn’t like confrontation and can be absentminded at times. She’s sweet and always has the town’s best interest at heart.

I’m glad Isabelle isn’t a typical villager who can move out of town. I enjoy having her around even though I wish she was able to do more, like a villager.

Overall, she’s a great character and was a nice addition to the Animal Crossing games.

Is Isabelle a favorite of yours? Which other characters from Animal Crossing do you like? Let me know in the comments below!

Character Spotlight: Fox McCloud

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!

Today’s Character Spotlight is a character who I don’t know very well. I’ve been talking about him and his games a lot this month though so… here it is. I know, I’m pretty original when coming up with my post ideas.

All About Fox McCloud | Star Fox | DoublexJump.com

Fox McCloud made his first appearance in Star Fox for the Nintendo SNES in 1993. He last appeared in Star Fox Zero for the Nintendo Wii U in 2016 and Star Fox 2 on the Nintendo SNES Classic in 2017. Being the protagonist, he’s been a busy guy starring in every Star Fox game as well as spinoffs such as the Super Smash Brothers series.

Fox was one of those characters I never paid too much attention to. The Star Fox games never really caught my interest, except Star Fox Adventures, but still, I never beat that game.

I do think Fox is a great, unique character. I enjoy his design and his background as well as what he stands for. His games just never caught my eye as much. Still, he’s fantastic in Super Smash Brothers. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more games with him fairly soon.

Have you played most of Fox’s games? Is he a favorite of yours? Let me know in the comments below!

Character Spotlight: Zelda

Happy Tuesday!

It’s the day after Christmas so I’m not doing anything but relaxing and playing any video games Santa got me.

For the final Character Spotlight of the year, I wanted to talk about Zelda. She’s been through a lot in 2017, so I think she deserves it.

Princess Zelda appeared in The Legend of Zelda for the NES in 1987 and most recently appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch in 2017. She’s been in an array of Legend of Zelda titles in between (of course, as the titles suggest) including spin-0ff games such as Hyrule Warriors and non-canon appearances such as the Super Smash Brothers series.

Zelda is one of my all-time favorite characters. Even though the games are mainly about Link (in a way) Zelda is more than a damsel in distress. She does what she can to protect Hyrule and rule her kingdom with an iron fist (against enemies, not her people).

When she’s able to fight, she really fights and it seems as though she always has a plan up her sleeve.

There are too many games in my radar at the moment, but I plan on playing the Champions’ Ballad DLC for Breath of the Wild soon. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Zelda in that.

Character Spotlight: Gladion [Pokemon]

Happy Tuesday!

I can’t believe November has come and gone already… This month (the whole year) has flown by.

With the release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, I thought I’d talk about one of my favorite characters from the Alola region.

Gladion from Pokemon

Gladion was first introduced in November 2016 when Pokemon Sun and Moon was released for the Nintendo 3DS. He was a member of the rival team, Team Skull. His sister is Lillie, who happens to be a good friend of yours.

However, Gladion has different motives than Team Skull. One of the reasons I love Gladion is because he’s kind of an anti-hero in a way. He’s a double agent trying to do what’s best for Alola on the inside. He doesn’t agree with what his mother is trying to do, so he’s subtly rebelling.

He’s a good character and I think he was well rounded throughout the game. His character development was on point throughout the game and even though you’re meant to dislike him in the beginning, I always liked him. His character was intriguing to me and I had wished he was one of our friends from the very beginning.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Pokemon Sun and Moon had the best character development for all of their characters. I absolutely loved each character and Gladion is by far one of my favorites.

Do you like Gladion? Who’s your favorite character from Alola? Let me know in the comments below!
