Spooky Video Game Music No. 212: Twilight Trail- Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GC)
Looks like Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is back in this list after a long time. Mario and your partner leave Twilight Town to find who is turning the citizens into pigs. The moon with its bright light and large size illuminates the Twilight Trail. Creep looking trees surround the forest. Blue Goombas and Crazyee Dayzees (for some reason) patrol the trail, trying to find Mario. Plus, there are many puzzles for our heroes must traverse to. Get used to traveling this path over and over though… that’s the scariest part…
Boy, this song does not disappoint on the scare department. The creeping beat on the back makes it feel like someone out there is watching Mario and his friends. The song brings this moody atmosphere which gives the feeling of being alone at night. Finally, the weird slow synth really adds to the spookiness of the stage, reminding us of a ghost making creepy sounds. While this part of the game is notorious for so many backtracking, you cannot deny that this song would make anyone uneasy and scared. 🎃
“The Traveler’s Tribute to Hylia’s Fallen Hero” part 2 of my BOTW series, where I paint my favorite places in the game
This is the 2nd painting of the series, but this is the painting that inspired it all, since this is my absolute favorite spot in the entire game
This is the spot Link fell 100 years ago, and where a multitude of swords have been stabbed into the ground out of respect for him. This is known as a Weapon Tombstone: when a character falls in battle, the grave is marked with the slain character’s weapon.
Some things to note is that these are Traveler’s Claymores, not Knight’s. These are just the average citizens of Hyrule who are paying their respects. Another thing is that these swords are not rusted, meaning that even after 100 years, the people of Hyrule are still honoring Link as their hero and remembering him at the spot he fell. It’s the smallest details that have the biggest emotional impact.
Dragon Quest XI Bestiary part 13
- Handsome Crab
- Spike Hare
- 24-Carrot Bunicorn (Rarefield)
Nothing here in this area except attack other monster for coin. But I managed to buy some gears and found the key. Now to go back into town to unlock the door. I do like it when I can switch the style of the game to 8 bit to HD.
Another Harvest Moon
Both of these legends visited my island today. Welcome to the island boys.
I couldn’t help but congratulate Timmy and Tommy while they prepared to renovate the shop.🏝
