Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

8 Feb

In addition to helping me pay for my recent computer upgrade, Parker gave me 2 DS games for my birthday: Professor Layton and the Last Specter and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Only recently cracked them open to play. Still using my DS Lite. Never upgraded to a DSi, and don’t see the need for a 3DS just yet.

Both games are what I call visual novels. It’s a style of game that I greatly enjoy! They typically have great characters, wonderful stories, and fun puzzles. Examples of these are Phoenix Wright and 999.

First one I devoured was Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. The game starts out with the main character dying. How? Why? Don’t know! That’s what you are trying to figure out, because you can’t remember. Luckily, as a ghost you’re able to do tricks, such as open and close an umbrella.

I really recommend this game for the story. For every answer, more questions came up. It was rather hard for me to put the game down at times. If you have an iOS device, the first 2 chapters are free.

Now to talk about my doodle! Mostly sketched from memory. Don’t think I did tooooooo bad. However, I have no idea why I made his hair bend like that. Meh! I enjoy his shades. Why? Since I was little, I’ve usually drawn the Sun with shades very similar to what Sissel here is wearing. Why put shades on the Sun? Dunno! I did it once and never stopped.

Come Down Here!

Haven’t been doodling much as of late. I am ashamed. Been taking care of Parker, playing Skyrim, and getting ready for the holidays (so much baking).

It’s not much, but it’s something! Little cartoon that is basically how I feel in Skyrim when I encounter a dragon. Once they land, I dominate them. Until then though…

Forgotten Two-Face Sketch

imageFlipped through my sketchbook to find a blank page and found this. Completely forgot to post it!

Parker had been playing Batman: AC and was working on an area that had a bunch of Two-Face goons. That meant whenever he died, Two-Face would appear on the continue screen.

Thoughts:

  • Suits are tricky
  • Need to spend a while just drawing hands
Other than that, it’s a doodle!
Will hopefully have more in the near future. I’ve been sucked into Skyrim, so expect my doodles to follow that theme.

Batman and Water

Scuba BatmanBatman can’t swim.

Not in the game at least.
Parker has been falling in it a lot.
I thought Batman could use some help.

BATMAN

BATMAN

Picked up Batman: Arkham City yesterday. This time, I’m just going to watch Parker play, instead of trying to play through myself. Not very good at finishing games, so this way is probably my best bet. Like the last game, it’s really well put together, and you get to feel as if you are Batman.

People were being skeptical as to how “open world” this would be, and from what we can see, it does a decent job. There are lots of side quests, mini events happening, and you can go to all kinds of places. The inmates are hilarious, as some of them just kind of accept that they are there to be beaten up by you.

The Penguin

While watching Parker kick-ass as Batman, I did some doodling. First thing to do was pretty mandatory. Did a simplistic version of him though. Should probably color him in.

Next character I did was Catwoman. She shows up really early in the game. Couldn’t make up my mind on how to pose her. I like the crouch, but wasn’t sure if it looked too… fake? Not sure. I adore her goggles. The open suit is somewhat silly in my eyes, but oh well!

Finally, I wanted to do a more villainy-villain. Went with The Penguin. Think I got the body/posture right. And the nose. Should have given him a monocle and some rings I think. Maybe I’ll add them later.
