Playing Yoshi's Woolly World Is Like Wrapping Yourself In A Warm Blanket

Playing Yoshi's Woolly World Is Like Wrapping Yourself In A Warm Blanket

Kirby's Epic Yarn didn't blow me away, but I definitely had fun playing it. Thankfully, Good-Feel's Yoshi based follow up feels real good, and improves on Kirby's simpler aspects.

Yoshi's Woolly World is a platformer where the entire world is made out of yarn, similar to Kirby's Epic Yarn. However, unlike Nintendo's previous stringy platformer, Yoshi and his enemies look more like beanie babies and not just silhouettes made of of a few strings. Yoshi's new game plays more like a traditional Yoshi game, too. I guess this shouldn't be surprising, since it has Yoshi's name in the title, but this detail does flesh out the gameplay in some welcome ways. Like usual, Mario's saddled dinosaur can swallow up enemies and certain environmental objects and turn them into yarn balls. Player will be able to throw these balls and wrap up certain enemies or destroy objects in the environment.

Survive The Crucible – Destiny’s Competitive Multiplayer

about X hours ago from

Bungie gave us the opportunity to dig into the new public alpha of Destiny last week, in advance of E3. If you’re interested in reading some more about my day with the game, you can explore my hands-on impressions. However, that day also resulted in a couple hours of hands-on play with the new competitive side of Destiny – the Crucible.

Destiny’s competitive Crucible content is fully integrated with the rest of the gameplay experience. In between exploring story missions, cooperative play, or solo wandering, your guardian can travel to orbit and select the new Crucible location, and immediately head into competitive play. Storywise, the Crucible is described as an ongoing effort by one of the in-game organizations (called Dead Orbit) to expand into territory beyond the city.

The Control game mode was available for play in the alpha. The 6v6 mode should be familiar to most FPS players, as it challenges players to take control of three flags scattered around the map, and hold those zones against enemy attack. Each player is assigned onto either the alpha or bravo team before battle begins. Points are scored for holding a flag zone, and for taking out enemy players. 

A Day With Destiny

I was afforded a rare treat the week before E3, as Bungie granted me access to the new public alpha test of Destiny, and the freedom to wander through the game world for as much time as I desired leading up to this week’s show. Unlike previous hands-on sessions I’ve experienced with the game, this most recent run occurred without direction or a pre-stated goal. Instead, I was able to explore all the content at my own pace, including leveling, free exploration, and character customization. While the alpha itself includes only one major gameplay zone, and a few major missons, it was more than enough content to prove out Bungie’s claim of a game that offers varied activities and lots of shiny rewards to aspire towards.
