There’s a minigame in Okami. One that we made up, admittedly, but a really good one, nonetheless. Basically, it involves running up to NPCs, trees, chests – pretty much anything that isn’t ‘nothing’, then stopping and pressing circle to bark at it. We were worried the HD remake might sterilise the charm, but no - barking at stuff in HD proves to be just as enjoyable and hard to resist. In fact, our thumbs are twitching now over an imaginary circle button as we bark at this article. Bark!
