I know I haven’t been very good at posting much about the games I’ve been playing lately- sorry! It was fun to do my “Gaming Week in Review” posts, but it started to become a little bit of a chore. I feel like when it’s time to sit down and play a game, I want to just PLAY it, not worry about taking screenshots and remembering what I was doing to give a play by play of it later. So, I figured if I did more of a summary post of what I’ve been playing, that would be easier and more fun to do! Doing this once every few weeks or so is much less stressful than trying to put out a post like that every week.
Anyway, I’ve decided that I’m going to follow a format for gaming that I came up with awhile back: I’ll try to focus on one console game, one handheld game, and one mobile game at a time so that I actually finish more of my games! 😉
With that being said, the console game I am currently playing is still Harvest Moon: Animal Parade for the Nintendo Wii. I am still loving this game! I’ve made considerable progress since the last time I posted about it. There are 5 bells to ring in order to restore power to the Harvest Goddess and get everything running as it should be, and I’ve already managed to ring 4 of them! The only one I have left is the Purple Bell, which is literally going to take forever. You have to become friends with 10 people and hear their wishes. Once you hear their wishes, you take the wish to a shrine because they can’t seem to do it their damn selves!
I haven’t quite become friends with anyone yet, though I am currently working on Owen. I also want Owen to become my husband, so I give him the gift of rice every day and he is warming up to me, haha!
Honestly, it doesn’t bother me that it is going to take awhile to ring the Purple Bell. I have so many upgrades I need to make to my farm, and there are so many different things to do, this game will keep me busy for a long time! Here is a screenshot of my current progress:
And this is how much money I’ve made so far. Not bad at all!
As far as handheld gaming goes, I’ve decided to forge ahead with The Legendary Starfy for the Nintendo DS. It is a fun game, but for some reason I play it, then put it away for long periods of time without actually finishing it! I’m going to try really hard to see this to completion, though. The last level I beat in this game was a boss battle against King Ping:
This guy was a total annoying douche who killed me a bunch of times because the attacks in this game are extremely cheap and you die way easier than you actually should! Ugh! I finally beat him though, and now I am getting ready to enter Sogwood Forest, which should be super wonderful.
World 4-1: Sogwood Forest: In a Fog is the exact name of the level I am currently on, in case you care!
In the world of mobile gaming, I’ve picked back up Juice Cubes on my iPhone! It’s a cute little game I’ve played before but never beaten, and the developers have added many levels on since the last time I’ve played. This game has a fun summertime vibe that I figured is perfect since it’s now summer! I’ve started from the beginning just to get myself re-acquainted with the game, so I’m only on Level 3!
Even though there are three main games I am focusing on, there’s always room to play one of the Animal Crossing games! 🙂 Currently I’ve been playing Doubutsu no Mori for the Nintendo 64. I want to finally pay off my house! So I’ve been fishing, digging up fossils, and shaking trees to try to make tons of Bells! It’s been raining every time I play lately, but I don’t mind. The rain is soothing in all of the Animal Crossing games!
I currently owe 339,000 Bells on this current expansion, so it’ll be awhile before my house is paid off.
There’s also always room to play Pokémon GO as well! I’ll do a separate post at the end of the month to fill you in on the new Pokémon I’ve acquired! 😉
So there you have it for the games I’ve been playing lately! I wish I had more time to play, but what else is new!
