I was at work yesterday and got really excited when these came in the mail for me!
My boss was walking around with the package just talking to me without really looking at it, so finally I interjected and was like “Um, I think that’s mine, I’ve been waiting for something!” Haha! 😉 Anyway, I ordered these Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome amiibo cards off of Amazon, and I’m glad I did! They had a purchase limit of 3, I guess because they don’t have large quantities of cards. Here’s what I got:
So I think I got some really good cards! I was really excited about Sprocket, he always amused me! I like Hornsby and Wade as well. I’m glad I didn’t get any doubles either- unless you count Huck, but he came with my game.
So, just wanted to share my new cards! This will probably be my last post of the year, since tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I’ll be hanging out with my family. Same goes for New Year’s Day! So hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year’s, and I’ll see you in 2017! 😉
So, why have I sucked at writing blog posts lately? Because my internet sucks! Right after we moved, our internet provider got bought out by another provider who apparently “doesn’t service” our area, so we are stuck with EXTREMELY SLOW internet! It’s so damn aggravating I haven’t been bothering to get on the internet much. And since it’s the holiday season, there hasn’t been much we could do except just wait to get something better. Hopefully things will change soon! Today our connection seems decent, so I figured I’d take a chance and write a little blog post!
Anyway! Now that my ranting and raving is done, I want to say that I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! The holidays always come and go way too quickly. I had a great Christmas hanging out with my family, and I’m looking forward to New Year’s this weekend when I get to spend time with them as well!
With that being said, my husband got me a few game related goodies for Christmas that I am really excited about! The first thing is a Plug-and-Play console called the Atari Flashback 7!
I’ve wanted one of these things for awhile! We do have an Atari, but it’s nice to have something like this that’s easier to set up versus having to fumble with old, annoying coaxial cables. It’s a bit smaller than the actual Atari, but still looks very faithful to the original. The two controllers are wireless, but you have the option to use your own Atari 2600 controllers, which is pretty cool!
It comes loaded with 101 games, and I can’t wait to check them all out!
The second thing I got was this cute little Pac-Man stress ball!
Haha! This is adorable, and I think I will keep him on my desk! Or take him to work with me and squeeze him to death whenever someone gets on my nerves…
Last but not least, I got a game that I have been very excited about: Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo for the 3DS! YAY!
I don’t know what the issue has been here in the U.S., but it’s actually been really hard to find this damn game! Stores were really slow to stock it, and even on Amazon the release date was really vague. My husband ordered it on Amazon, then happened to find it in Target! Luckily he was able to cancel the Amazon order!
Anyway, I do realize that I could’ve updated my New Leaf game for free, but there’s a couple reasons why I didn’t do that. One, I didn’t even have enough memory on my 3DS for the update, and moving data is a pain in the ass to me. Two, I wanted to have one town that was in the “old” version of New Leaf and one town that was in the “new” version of New Leaf. This game update is so massive, it’s basically like playing a brand new game! My husband didn’t really seem convinced by my explanation, but he bought me the game anyway! 😉
One cool thing about this game is it comes with a free Welcome Amiibo card! Look who I got!
Huck is so cute! I love frogs 🙂 These Welcome Amiibo cards have been really scarce too- in fact, I haven’t seen any in stores at all! I was able to order some off of Amazon (at a normal price, not $20 like some jerks are trying to sell them for) and they should be arriving this week. I can’t wait to see who else I get!
So, that’s it for my Christmas goodies! I really love it all. Once my 3DS is done charging, I am going to fire up Animal Crossing New Leaf:Welcome Amiibo, so there will be an entry about that soon! 🙂
As you can probably imagine, I’ve been playing quite a bit of Animal Crossing: Wild World (VC). Even though the game is 11 years old, it feels brand new on the Virtual Console! Anyway, here’s what’s been happening in my town the past couple weeks…
The first new villager I had moved in on my side of the map that I wanted to keep all to myself! Ugh! But when I saw who it was, I was happy!
Puddles is too cute! I had her in my Animal Crossing GCN town briefly. Here she is cheering me on after I caught a fish! I hope Puddles stays around, even though the location of her house is a bit too close to mine.
After that, Kid Cat moved in. He’s cute too!
However, the next time I looked at my map, I couldn’t BELIEVE my bad luck!
Noooo! Not fucking Queenie! She is SO RUDE in my GameCube and City Folk towns! She’s on my side of the map too, which is annoying because I don’t want to be close to her! Well, maybe she’ll be nice in this one….
I decided that since it’s about to be winter time, I’d dress for the occasion!
Next, Gwen moved in. She’s a little cutie! I do love all the penguin characters.
I paid off my first home loan…
But not like it matters, because I went right back into debt!
When I played earlier this week, I was surprised to find that my town actually had a dense fog covering it! I could barely make out anything in the background. In all my years of playing Animal Crossing games, I have never seen anything like this before!
I then checked my town map and discovered my 8th villager had moved in…
And I got so excited! Marina is so adorable, and I have been wanting her in one of my towns for a long time. She seems so sweet!
Meanwhile, Queenie already showed her ass, so now I don’t like her in this town either!
I also noticed that Gwen had landscaped her house beautifully! I know villagers will sometimes randomly do this, but it was still really nice to see.
Puddles asked me for some red furniture, and I happened to have a red bed in my pockets! I handed it over to her right away, and she was so happy.
The next day when I visited her, I noticed it was set up in her house. Yay!
And here’s one last photo of Marina being adorable:
So that’s what’s been happening in Satanica lately! 😉 My next blog entry will probably be about the Pokémon I’ve caught recently in Pokémon GO. See ya!
One thing you probably know about me by now is the fact that I will give pretty much any game a chance, regardless of genre, critical reception, etc. I don’t shy away from games just because they are targeting a “specific audience,” so I’m always keeping my eyes open for new games to play!
One game I definitely would not have sought out on my own accord is Disney Magical World for the 3DS. I’m not a big Disney fan, despite the fact that I grew up in Orlando with Disney World only about 30 minutes from my house! Nevertheless, about a year and a half ago I was browsing some Animal Crossing forums and someone had mentioned Disney Magical World. They said it was a super fun game with elements similar to Animal Crossing and they liked it even though they weren’t a fan of Disney or Disney characters!
Naturally, this statement piqued my interest, so I looked it up online and decided I wanted to buy the game! It had been out for a little while before I heard of it, so it wasn’t really in too many stores. My husband found it at Gamestop and surprised me with it, which I thought was awesome! I played the hell out of that game- and enjoyed every second of it! It’s a Disney game without being too “Disney”- there are Disney characters in it, yes, but they are all part of a bigger story. You could play this game with no knowledge of Disney characters and simply feel like you are in a strange and wonderful world filled with both human and animal characters alike. There are so many different objectives to complete and so many items to collect, this game will keep you busy for a long time!
After playing it for a little while, I switched off to a different game, which is something I do quite often! 🙂 Last weekend, though, I decided to give Disney Magical World some love once more! The first thing I noticed was that I hadn’t played the game since September 2015, which is pretty lame!
I left off having 45 stickers- so technically I am not even halfway done with the game yet. I l have a long way to go!
The first thing I did was put on a Christmas T-shirt 🙂
I was a little out of practice with the game, so I decided to start playing through all of the episodes I had already beaten in each of the worlds (Cinderella, Winnie the Pooh, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, and Pirates of the Caribbean). So far I’ve worked my way through Cinderella and some of Winnie the Pooh. One of the Cinderella episodes pissed me off because it had a really annoying glitch. I defeated some enemies and was trying to pick up this gem:
But every time I got near it, it would disappear! Then I would walk away, and it would come back! Uggh!!!
I’ve also been busy trying to collect as many items as I can, which earned me this sticker:
I also managed to craft a Well Made Rod, which is pretty cool! I had to grind a little bit for the items needed to make it, so it took a little bit of time.
I did earn a couple more stickers, but I didn’t take any screenshots- and I totally thought I did. I guess I was half asleep when I was playing or something! Anyways, I’m really into this game right now, so I’m sure I’ll write more about my adventures 🙂
Oh yeah, I guess I should mention- I really do want Disney Magical World 2, so it would be great if I could finish this one first! 😉 I’ll at least try to complete all the episodes in every world, then focus on collecting the rest of the items I need. We’ll see if I actually do that or if I just end up getting the game and playing them both at the same time! 😉
