My Gaming Week in Review (7/03- 7/09)!


Nintendo GameCube

Like I mentioned in my previous blog entry, I played Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door for the very first time! I won’t do a recap on it since I just wrote about it, but here’s a funny screenshot:



Nintendo 3DS

I played some Animal Crossing: New Leaf for awhile. It was nice to visit my town again! I came out of my house and noticed that I had something to dig up right by my house!

Hmmm, what will it be? Hopefully a valuable fossil!

I decided I needed to update my look a little bit, so I went dyed my hair purple and bought some new clothes! Now I have kind of a cute, sporty look!

I love it! For now. I’ll probably change my mind in a week!

I spotted Leif snoozing near my house, so I decided to help him out and pull some weeds.

Even though he’s so lazy, I love him!

I then spent some time shaking trees and picking fruit. I found an “amazing machine” in a tree and thought it sounded cool, so I immediately went to my house to check it out!

Sounds awesome!

Man, was I disappointed.

Um…. well, that sucks!Ā 

There is nothing amazing about that at all! Ugh! Anyway, I also visited my villagers as I traveled through town. Hippeaux has an extremely fancy house!

Who knew he lived so richly!

I also found a house plot for Rolf, and I am very excited he is moving in! I had him in my Animal Crossing town many many years ago, and I love him- even if he is a bit grumpy!


I also chatted with Rizzo, who was camping in Blorp for the day.

I even stopped for a cup of coffee!

Drinking coffee with Kapp’n!

After awhile, I decided to do some fishing. I caught two new fish: Ā a guppy and an ocean sunfish!

After fishing and selling various items and fruits, I had quite a bit of Bells in my pocket, so I decided to pay off more of my mortgage. I’m getting there!

Blah, I’m always in debt!

I also played some Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer this week. When I started up the game, I chatted with Isabelle. She told me there were a bunch of new projects available for me!

Not today, my dear!Ā 

However, I wanted to do a little something different this time, so I put off the projects for now. I haven’t used my NFC reader to scan an Amiibo card yet, so I checked that out today. If you aren’t familiar with using Amiibo cards in this game, you simple scan in a card and it “calls” the character on the card. You can then design their home! And since I have the first model of the 3DS, I had to get a separate scanner to be able to use the cards. Luckily, it came bundled with Happy Home Designer. šŸ™‚

Anyway, the first customer I called was Stitches! Of course! I love him! Haha.

I chose a location that was bright and sunny with a little body of water nearby. It seems like he would really enjoy the trees and bright flowers too!

Geez, can I live here too?

I decorated the outside of his house with bright, fun colors. In his yard, I went with tons of flowers, a slide, and two sandboxes for him to play in. I also added a swing so he could look out into the water and relax.


Inside, I made almost everything “Kiddie” and I added a couple toys as well as some crayons and paint supplies for him to play with. I left the middle of the floor pretty open so he would have plenty of room to play!

Stitches absolutely loved his new home, and that made me very happy! šŸ˜‰




I’ve pretty much made it a habit to play Solitaire before bed almost every night. And surprisingly, I’ve won a few games!


I also played The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed for the first time. I REALLY want to see that movie because it looks absolutely adorable! šŸ˜‰ Anyway, I downloaded it a couple weeks ago and just decided to check it out earlier today.


This game is a pretty standard Match-3/ Candy Crush/ Juice Cubes type game, but with pets from the movie. At the beginning of the game, I’m greeted by Max, who is very excited!


Every level has a different goal, and it seems like every pet wants something different. Max, for instance, is waiting for his owner to come home.


After a couple levels, I unlocked Leonard, who apparently is a purebred metalhead! My kind of dog!


Leonard’s levels required me to match toys to turn up the volume on his speakers. When his owner leaves, he starts out listening to classical music, and he is sitting up very proper…


But once you give him some volume, he rocks out and starts headbanging! I love it!


I only played 5 levels of this game, but it is super cute and fun so far. I will definitely be playing more of it in the coming days!

Those were all the games I played this week. Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh! I would love to play Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door… This is the Gamecube version? Right? I have not played it before. All the Paper Mario games look fantastic.. and I only own two of them which is Super Paper Mario… (My son loves this game) and Paper Mario Sticker Star but I haven’t played either of these yet!! ha ha.. even tho they are here to play. My son has played both tho. So many games I still haven’t got the chance to play yet. And then there a new Paper Mario: Color Splash coming out on Wii U in December, so that is also another game my son and I cannot wait to get our hands on!! Anyway, it’s fun to see our New Leaf villagers snoozing outside, isn’t it? ha ha.. It just cracks me up!! I’ve been so busy with my Vita games lately, I haven’t visited New Leaf in a while because of it.. I love the pretty cheery colors you did for Stitches in Happy Home!! He seems like such a nice, fun villager. Oh, I really want to see The Secret Life of Pets movie too!!! It looks so, so CUTE and FUNNY. I bet the movie has a great turn out. We went and watched the new Ghost Busters movie instead of Pets last week, and thought Ghostbusters was great and funny too!!! A bit scary… but funny!!! I didn’t realize that there was a Secret Life of Pets mobile game… but not surprised!!! I’m sure that’s a good one too and looks fun to unlock the characters.

    1. Yep, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is for the GameCube! It is an awesome game. I have all of the Paper Mario games- Super Paper Mario is pretty awesome! And I have Sticker Star but have not played it yet either. I can’t wait for Paper Mario: Color Splash! It really looks like fun.

      Aww yes I love to see my little villagers sleeping! I think pretty much anything they do is cute though lol! And Stitches is super cute. I just want to squeeze him! šŸ™‚

      That’s cool that you liked the new Ghost Busters movie! I was wondering if it was any good- I really liked the original! I really can’t wait to see The Secret Life of Pets. Everyone I know that has seen it has loved it!

      1. I hope others liked the new Ghostbusters as much as me because the critics were really dogging it!! They don’t know anything anyway.. lol. I thought it was great… yes, I loved the original Ghostbusters too!! I want to see The Secret Life of Pets too.. I bet it’s really good and cute. Let me know if you go see it!!

      2. You are right, critics don’t know anything! I never go buy what they say. If I want to see a movie they said sucked, I’ll watch it anyway! I’ll probably just wait until The Secret Life of Pets comes out on DVD, but I can’t wait! šŸ™‚

  2. You’ve had a pretty full gaming week! Did you see the upcoming update for NewLeaf, allowing you to read the amiibo into the game? Cool, I always thought NewLeaf could do with a bit of sprucing up with what they offer in HHD!

    1. Yes I did read about that, and I’m really excited! It’ll be pretty neat to “call in” certain villagers! I can’t wait to get more details about the update! šŸ™‚
