Character Spotlight: Spyro

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Tuesday!

Another month has come and gone, which means that it’s time for another character spotlight. Today, I’m talking about an old school guy who has made a comeback recently.

 

Character Spotlight: Spyro the Dragon

Spyro is nostalgic for me. I remember playing his games on the Play Station way back when. He’s always had a soft spot in my heart mainly because he’s so cute.

He was first introduced in 1998 Spyro the Dragon for Play Station. His series continued in Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The Legend of Spyro, released in 2006-2008, was a trilogy of games that was supposedly a rebooted version of the previous games.

Most recently, Spyro has appeared in the Skylanders series (2011-2016).

I was excited to play Skylanders when it was first announced because I remembered Spyro from my childhood. However, Spyro wasn’t the same.

They had changed him, but I enjoyed his character all the same. He’s still a cute, purple dragon to me. And, while I didn’t play the Skylanders game for very long, I thought it was a good game. It’s still something I plan to get back to at some point, but now I’m six games behind, so… Who knows?

Still, I’ve always loved Spyro and I would love to try the original games again sometime.

Do you remember Spyro? Did you play the games? Let me know in the comments below!

Top 5 Multiplayer Games

Rachel Mii Double JumpHey everyone!

There are a lot of games out there that are definitely more fun to play with others rather than playing alone.

The games I mentioned in my favorite games to play with friends post, here are five games I enjoy playing in multiplayer mode!

5. Skylanders

This game is definitely playable alone, but I do enjoy playing with other people. I like being able to use more Skylanders at once. You can see more of the powers they have, level each Skylander up faster, and it’s always fun to have a sidekick by your side in a level.

4. Donkey Kong Country

Whether you’re playing the old SNES DK game or you’re playing the new Wii U version, this game is so much better with friends. I find it more fun to run through each level with DK and Diddy running separately with each player rather than together with just one player controlling them.

3. Yoshi’s Woolly World

This game is too cute not to play with friends. End of story.

2. Super Mario Bros.

Like Donkey Kong, this game is a lot more fun no matter which version you’re playing. Though I have to admit that the newer Wii U versions seem to be easier with more people playing. You can explore more of the level in less time and there are certain levels that I feel would be hard to beat without the help of another player.

1. Just Dance

Who wants to have a dance party by themselves? You just look like an idiot if you’re dancing alone. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to laugh at your friends when they in fact can’t dance.

What are some of your favorite multiplayer games?
