Squishy's thoughts and playthrough of Miitopis Demo


Miitopia is a game that I wasn't expecting to enjoy. Anytime I saw footage of it I didn't think much of it. Well that changed a lot (so much that I originally had almost 100 photos to go through, RIP). So here are my thoughts on the Miitopia Demo. (try to keep a count of how many times I say anything with the word "Mii" in it. Good Luck!)


It starts with the main story. What happens is that all of the Miis in Miitopia are hetting there faces stolen by the Dark Lord and its up to you and your squad of Miis to defeat him. Its a basic story but they can't really do much with Miis. Plus watching the faces get removed from the Mii's heads is actually really creepy.


The first hero I chose was Mii me. Squishy!


After running from a creepy butterfly I end up in a little town filled with Miis of popular celebrities and characters, like this weird couple!



or a starky Abraham Lincolm


After talking to all of the town's people the Dark Lord appeared, who I had to choose. You had the option to pick a Mii from either Mii Central (a cyberspace full of random Miis that people have made), Mii Maker, your Friend List or even from your Tomodachi Life Island. You can also make one from scratch. There's even a random button for Mii Central which gave me some funny results.



After thinking about it for a bit, I wanted the main characters in the story to either be my friends or some Youtubers I watch. In the end I went with this...


OH MY GOOOSH! A FLOATING SHOPPING LIST HE'S DEAD!!!


After that a random voice form above gave me a...



Am I the only one that yelled that in an epic voice?

I got to choose what job my Mii was going to have. I decided to make myself a mage.




After a bit of adventuring I had to choose a companion. I chose Beth and made her a Cleric for healing purposes.






After every area yu party can rest in an inn. Why the world has so many inns I don't know but its handy!



You can put your Miis in the same room to improve their friendship which makes them better in battle.


While at the inn I removed Beth's weird hat. That's better!


You can also let your Miis go buy stuff. This reminded me of Animal Crossing New Leaf so I let her buy it.





After exploring the game a little, I found a place to scan amiibo to get the character's costume






After playing for a while I got a third party member. Jeff the warrior! Huzzah!



I met up with Proton Jon again and the Great Sage Chuggaaconroy appeared (because you can't have Proton Jon without Chuggaaconroy).



I decided not to spoil anymore of the story so here are some fumy photos.









I also got my fourth party member, Chack the Pop Star (the other two jobs available are the thief and the chef.)


Some of the things these Miis say are priceless!






While walking around Chack wanted a battle cry. I couldn't think of anything that would fit 26 characters so I just made him say "For the glory of Miitopia"






Sometimes in the inns (couldn't word that better) the Miis will have conversations in their rooms. Here's one that Beth and Chack were having.





Oops1 Secrets out!




At this point I finished the demo (thanks a lot Beethoven for ruining the fun).



Final thoughts
Overall this game is a lot better then I expected. It made me actually laugh out loud which doesn't happen often. I will be sure to buy the full game when it releases. Thank you for reading and if you haven't tried the demo, I highly recommend it.

Beth: ACNL: Chai Visits

I've finally gone back to NL after a week or so, and I have to say I've missed it!

I started wandering and bumped into Chai literally just behind my house. She asked to come over, and I said yes.

 Chai liked my house, and told me I have tons of food and rare items :P

I unfortunately missed the Summer Solstice - but not in real life! I didn't get home until just before midnight on Wednesday, and it was still a little light even then.

I managed to accidentally breed a purple rose, but I should probably try to do this on purpose at some point.

I spotted two frog things in Nook's, including a real one. Ribbit.

Rudy asked me to take Acorn away from sea level, and asked to move out when I couldn't :P I let him go.

One of my initiatives was to send money to my future self, which I did. I only sent it for tomorrow, though.

I did something else I haven't done in a while - played some Puzzle League! I actually really enjoyed this, too.

Thanks for reading! See you Tuesday.

Squishy: Hide and Suck at Seeking

Yesterday evening Jeremiah asked me to get him some perfect fruit. After giving him a perfect orange he gave me the item of his ancestors, a frog woman pole.
 


I thought it would be a good idea to scan one of my amiibo in so that others could get her items. I chose Isabelle to do the task.
 


My premier item in ReTail were perfect pears. Good thing I didn't scan in Reese instead.


 
 Iggly said that he was moving out of town on the 25th of this month. I didn't let him go.
 


One thing I just noticed as I'm writing this is that I only just got him to stay. Phew!

Filbert had his eyes on the frog woman pole. Wait what? So he had his eyes on Jeremiah's ancestor? Okay...
 


I decided to update my dream and my client count reached 50. Thank you all 50 of you for visiting!


 
At around 10pm I opened my gate for the celebration. Rodney, Gen and later Chack joined so I had my first full house in Cosmic!
 


 
The full house was short lived because Rodney had to leave briefly to organise his friend list and Chack left for the night to get some irl stuff done.
 


When Rodney returned we all agreed to go to the island. While I was talking to Kapp'n, Rodney was talking to me so I declined the island briefly to reply. Then Gen started talking to Kapp'n and paid for the trip. Oops! Sorry Gen...
 



We started with the Easy Hide and Seek Tour. Rodney and Gen found two people each and I couldn't find anyone. I even tried talking to a rock mistaking it for a villager.


 
After the game I mentioned my Hide and Seek failure and Grams randomly started laughing. It took me a moment to realise that she was laughing at Rodney and not me.
 


We all did some talking and fishing for a bit. Rodney was catching a bunch of sea bass so I mentioned Magikarp Jump. Or in this case, Sea Bass Jump!
 

 



Next we did the Elite Item Matching Tour.
 


I was about to take a photo of how close we were at actually winning it but we disconnected. This was almost an hour after I opened my gate so I ended for the night. Thank you Rodney, Gen and Chack for stopping by. I'll have to do it more often.

Today Crackle the pig was staying at my campsite. I think he was here before but I can't remember.
 


Filbert invited me to his house. He was selling the frog woman pole so I bought it.
 


I managed to get Katrina again. Not long now.
 


 
Thank you for reading and have a good weekend!
