Hello everyone and welcome to the 29th installment of 31 days. Only a few days remain. This one will be a quick one as I have tons upon tons of work to complete. Today’s Song is:
Main theme – Alien Syndrome
While I chose this track, I actually want to talk about the reboot they had on the Wii. While I love the original the Wii version will always hold a special place in my heart. I got the game for my birthday and tried playing it with my Dad, but he really couldn’t grasp it so we didn’t get far, still fun initially. I shelve the game for a while only to see my brother and cousin playing it later. So I decided to jump in because I would now have people to play with (up to 4 players). We had an absolute blast with the game, exploring every crevice, killing every alien on the levels, customizing out characters, and enjoying the story. Many an inside joke was created from that experience. We would go on to play the game over the span of a year or so. This was because we would only play the game when all of us were together. Those are the days I’ll keep with me as the years roll by and we do our thing, living our lives. I know this has nothing super spooky to it, but the game does fit thematically. It also makes me miss the wonderful days of couch co-op. Playing alone online is very different from playing with friends next to you. If they ever made a re-master/reboot of the series again I would hope they follow the Wii’s example and craft another fine experience, just a little more polished and shiny looking.
