Hey all! Sorry for the random 2 week break! I did have plans for the blog, but my uni work must come first. However, instead of jumping right into my Kamen Rider Grease Review, I wanted to talk about an MMO that I have fell in love with that nobody in my circles plays: MapleStory 2.
So with MMO, I don't really care about the story, so I'm going to skip it here, though I will say it depends on your class. As a berzerker, my story involves me never winning against an old man. The gameplay is mostly basic, but also really fun.
It's a standard MMO, you can run, jump and do your basic attacks and using the shoulder buttons and trigger buttons on your controller, you can perform special attacks. You can get custom clothes for your character, a custom house for your character, the works! People may ask what makes me enjoy this game so much and it's a few things. Firstly, the art style for this game is so cutesy and when stepping into a town with so much life, it's just a joy to behold. Furthermore, the controls for the game also feel like they belong in a performer, as you can run and climb up walls. The game takes advantage of this by having minigames that you can play with people online every hour or so, and it's really fun to do.
Secondly, it's just the atmosphere around the town that makes me so good to play. I love just going into town and finding a person playing music. I love going to a new place and just finding out about what I can I see and do, seeing all the cute avatars makes me so happy to see. I think that's amazing to go into my house and work on it if I can. The game's music also makes me feel as I play it.
Overall, I think Maple Story 2 is a great game, that sadly is not played by many. I honestly hope that more people give this game a try with the new expansions coming out. And if your in the Europe server, say hi sometime! Just look for NanaMarfo!
Sorry for the Long wait guys, I just took a lot of time off in order to finish my course work. I think it went well! No results just yet though.
Either way, thank you guys so much for reading, Happy Valentines Day to those who will be celebrating and I will see you guys next time. Take Care and keep creating!
