    jp's Chibi-Robo (GC)

    [October 25, 2007 05:32:32 PM]
    Playing this game in a collaborative asynchronous fashion has been pretty interesting. On the one hand, it's a bit disappointing to "miss out" on certain parts of the game (like story cut-scenes or solving certain puzzles), on the other hand, it's neat to talk to someone about what's been going on in the game since I last played.

    In many ways having to talk to someone about where the game is currently at has preempted my writing about this game here. I guess that's ok...

    I've an unusual experience with this game. Namely, my wife and son started playing this before I did! Needless to say, it's been interesting to hear my son talk about the game and all the special "tricks" my wife has done in the game in order to meet certain goals or pass certain obstacles.

    The memory card they'd been using was full so I whipped out another I had and ran into the most unusual technical problem. I still don't know whom or what to blame. I copied the saved games from the full card onto the new one. However, when I next booted the game up I was asked to format the new card! Huh? So, I managed to somehow lose their saved games. So, now I feel really guilty about the whole fiasco. Fortunately, my son didn't seem to care in the least and he was happy to show me how to play through the first 30 minutes or so of the game (actually, he wanted to play and was happy to have me read him the text from the cut scenes). A few hours (and days) later and we've finally reached the state the game was in when I lost their saved games. Whew!

    In all, the experience of playing Chibi-Robo has been absolutely delightful. It's gratifying and enjoyable to watch little Chibi-Robo walk around and to be a sort of fly-on-the-wall and guardian angel to the family the robot lives in. In fact, that's where things get really interesting. Superficially, it's all niceness and cutesy...but the actual drama in the household is heart-wrenching and gripping.

    Anyways, I've really enjoyed it so far and picking up trash around the house has never felt so good. The wonders of instant on-screen feedback, eh?
