My Gaming Month in Review: April 2020!

I didn’t get a whole lot of gaming time in the month of April, mostly because I have been too damn exhausted to do anything, even if it’s something fun! Story of my life these days for some stupid reason! Anywho, here’s what I accomplished in April 2020!

Console

Nintendo Wii

I played a little bit of Animal Crossing: City Folk. I didn’t pay off anymore of my loan, but I sold some stuff and made a little more money. Hopefully I’ll be able to make another mortgage payment soon!

Of course I played some Animal Crossing: New Horizons! I still haven’t made a First Impressions post of this game, but I do plan on it. I did a lot in the month of April: participated in a couple events, had a few more residents move in, expanded my house, etc. If I ever get that First Impressions post done, I’ll write more details on my gameplay 😉

I did manage to finish a game this month, believe it or not! I completed my gameplay of Mario Tennis Aces. I’ll write an End Game Thoughts post about it at some point, so stay tuned for more info 😉

Still plugging away at Pokémon Blue! I explored the Safari Zone, which was a HUGE pain in the ass! Pokémon tend to break out of the Safari Balls and run WAY too easily. I’m not big on luck-based shit! I managed to nab a few new Pokémon anyway, but it wasn’t really that fun. I tweaked my team a bit, and I ended the month by gathering experience while exploring Route 16!

Of course I played Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on my phone! The events in April were cute, but a little too pink for my tastes. Anyway, I ended the month at level 174 with 195/198 villagers invited to my camp! I decorated the upstairs of my cabin around Tom Nook this time, so here’s what I came up with:

It was actually harder than I thought to make a theme around him for some reason! I ended up trying to mimic his store, with completely random items up for sale. And instead of working, he’s sleeping behind the cash register. I almost fall asleep at work every day, so I totally understand. 😉

  1. Very surprised to see some Animal Crossing in your monthly gaming 😉 I have Pokemon Red and Blue and those are games I wish I had kept the boxes for as it would make them very valuable! I didn’t play Pokemon games for a long time (I think Fire Red was the last one I played) but I had a great time catching all the Pokemon in Blue! 🙂

    1. Yeah, what I surprise, me playing Animal Crossing, haha! 😉 It’s definitely my go-to series of games.Oh you’re right, Pokemon Red and Blue would probably be pretty valuable still sealed up! They are great games. 🙂

  2. Excited to hear your thoughts on Tennis Aces. I keep being reminded of that game. I’d probably enjoy it. I loved Wii Tennis. I have no clue if it’s similar to that, but I’ve always liked tennis games lol.

    1. It’s a fun game- I just can’t keep up with all the special moves, lol!! I love all the different characters though! It’s actually pretty different from Wii Tennis to me. Wii Tennis is more “real” while Mario Tennis has all kinds of weird trick shots that you find find in the real thing! I have always liked tennis games too, which is odd, because I don’t really like tennis in real life. I played the hell out of Super Tennis for the Super Nintendo back in the day! 🙂

      1. I used to jog! Albeit very VERY slowly lol. I did speed up from when I was in high school though. I managed to run a mile in 15 minutes, which was my best time. Tennis is really rough on your body due to all of the arm motion. It totally makes sense why tennis elbow is a thing.

      2. A mile in 15 minutes is probably way faster than I ever did, lol! I never did like running- in high school when we had to run around the track 4 times to equal one mile, I totally cheated and walked 3 laps and was like “Yeah, I did 4!” and the teacher wrote my time down lmao.

        And oh yeah, tennis is a really rough sport, and I don’t think people realize how tough it is on your body!

      3. YUP. We had that, too, and I was always the last one. I hated it because you’d get a letter grade for being slower no matter how hard you tried, and that really pissed me off. PE made me hate exercise but then when I could do it on my own terms I realized I liked running because I wasn’t being graded.
