Character Spotlight: Therion

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

Get ready to listen to us talk about Octopath Traveler a lot because that’s currently our new favorite game.

Character Spotlight: Therion | Octopath Traveler | Nintendo | Nintendo Switch | DoublexJump.com

Therion is one of the 8 characters you can choose to play as in Octopath Traveler. He’s the thief character and has the special ability to pick-pocket certain people he meets on his journey and in the different villages.

Kris and I chose to play as him for our first play through of the game simply because he’s a thief and we really like his character design, despite liking all their designs. Therion’s personality makes us like him all the more. He’s cynical and snarky and has some great sarcastic comments. Like pretty much all of the characters, he’s got a tragic backstory that’s mysterious. He has a purpose that’s not clear right at the beginning.

He’s kind of a lone wolf, despite journeying with the other characters in the game, and it certainly works for his type of personality. Therion was done well when the developers designed him.

Therion, as of right now, is one of my favorite characters. Maybe it’s because I chose him as my first play through so he’ll always have that special spot, but he’s just a well rounded character with cool skills, an interesting personality, and a wonderful voice actor.

What do you think of Therion? Let me know in the comments below!

Character Spotlight: Goomba

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

The end of the month has arrived which means I’m going to be shining the spotlight on another lovable character in gaming.

Character Spotlight: Goomba | Nintendo | Mario Bros. | Video Games | Gaming | DoublexJump.com

Goomba is a character in the Mario franchise. He’s an enemy of Mario’s and has been since his first appearance in Super Mario Bros. in 1985. Goomba is as simple to defeat as stomping on him. He is based after the shiitake mushroom, after all.

I’ve always liked Goomba because he’s always been an “easy” enemy and overall simple in name and appearance.

Goomba appears in just about every Mario game as an enemy though he’s never much of a threat. Now that Super Mario Party as been announced, it seems as though Mario and friends are being inclusive and allowing just about everyone to join in on the fun and games.

Will I be playing as Goomba in the new Mario Party game? Most likely not only because Boo is now a playable character. But I’m interested to see Goomba just as much as all the new characters.

Do you like Goomba? Are you excited to play as him in Super Mario Party? Let me know in the comments below!

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: 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.

Do you love Pikachu? Who’s your favorite Pokemon? Let me know in the comments below!

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.
