Pokemon Letdown: Kim Dao’s Review

Kim Dao, a YouTube personality who gained popularity for her make-up and fashion videos is also an active vlogger. She also maintains YouTube channel dedicated strictly to gaming. One of Kim Dao’s most popular videos on this channel is “Over Hyped?? #toomuchwater Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire.” This video serves as an informal review of Nintendo’s Pokémon games Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, two games in the ongoing Pokémon series. The Pokémon series is a popular franchise of video games, trading cards, cartoons and films that maintains acclaim from fans worldwide. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes of the similar games released in 2002. Kim Dao, who posts video of herself playing the game on her gaming channel, expresses her hesitation to continue playing Omega Ruby. Kim Dao even remarks how strange it is for a huge fan like herself to be unwilling to play the game. Kim Dao then begins to discuss how the remakes were a bit of a letdown. After a massive promotional campaign by Nintendo for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Kim Dao questions why the game was such a disappointment to her. Questioning further, Kim Dao wonders if it’s her previous experience with the original game, combined with an overblown marketing campaign from Nintendo that may have left the game feeling unremarkable. With a plan to finish the game in its entirety within a week and uploading the footage to YouTube, Kim Dao failed to do so out of boredom with the game.
