Atlus Announces My World My Way
Are you sick of typical RPG’s that have “gender-confused boy heroes with their spikey hair and ginormous swords living out an absurd ultimate fantasy?” Well, apparently, My World My Way is the game for you. Originally released in Japan as The World Revolves Around Me, this totally amazing DS game has you controlling Elise as she runs around doing I don’t know what. She has the ability to change the landscape when it doesn’t suit her, make monsters give more money, and can even make quests solve themselves. As far as I can tell you actually don’t do anything. You just hit the “I Win” button and the game ends, which is a concept Thrasher came up with like 10 years ago. I guess the game just pokes fun at a bunch of RPG clichés, the video game equivalent of Scary Movie.
“Attention, please! I am sick of RPGs with gender-confused boy heroes with their spikey hair and ginormous swords living out an absurd ultimate fantasy. Is having your village burn down all you really need to be a champion? And a scar on your face is supposed to make you… What, dark and brooding? Try uncoordinated.
“My name is Elise, and I can change things. No, seriously. When I travel, I expect things around me to go my way. If they don’t, I can make them!
“In My World, My Way, I can change the landscape when it doesn’t suit me, make monsters give me more money, and always take the first turn in battle. I can also make enemies go away if I don’t feel like fighting, shut down their magic abilities, and even make quests solve themselves. Sure, other RPGs let you explore lands and fight monsters, but how many of them let you change the world around you?
“If those walking, talking manchild clichés can leave their farms and their tiny villages – saying tearful goodbyes to their uncles or surrogate parents – and save the universe in the course of a few hours, I’m sure a resourceful girl like me will have the world wrapped around my finger in no time.”
