My Gaming Week in Review (2/11- 2/18)!

Console

No console gaming this week!

Nintendo DS

I visited my Animal Crossing: Wild World town of Booland this week. I was looking through my pockets to see what I had, and for some reason I had this gas mask… so I put it on. Creepy, but I like it!

imacreep

Elmer was crying because he missed me so much! Poor guy. He is also trying to move away, so I tried to convince him to stay in Booland. I don’t know if it worked yet or not!

Meanwhile, Robin found her way onto my Official Shit List. Piss off, Robin!

yousuckrobin

Luckily, Stitches was there to make me feel better. I just love that little guy!

Playstation Vita

Surprise! I picked up a Playstation Vita last Sunday! I went to a cool gaming store and got a whole bunch of goodies (goodbye, Christmas money!) so I’m going to do a blog post on that soon. The game I chose to buy with my Vita was Persona 4: Dancing All Night. I’ll be doing a First Impressions post of this game, so I won’t spoil anything here. In the meantime, check out the colorful loading screen!

Well, I beat Cooking Fever this week! At least, I beat the default restaurant that you start with (Fast Food Court). I reached experience level 9, which was nice.

After beating all 40 levels, this screen popped up.

And here are my stats after beating every level!

fastfoodcourtfinalstats

Now that I’ve cleared all the levels, I really don’t have much motivation to upgrade that particular restaurant any further. I have 2 additional restaurants I can unlock as of right now, so I’ll save my coins and gems for those. For now, though, I consider the game beaten. I’ll definitely come back to it to play the other restaurants at some point though!

I played quite a bit of Pokémon GO this week! I hatched 2 eggs: one was a Meowth, one was a Tentacool. Kind of disappointing, since I already have both of those. I was hoping for a Gen. 2 baby, but oh well!

I finally evolved my Metapod into a Butterfree!

Since I have all of Caterpie’s evolutions now, it was time to pick a new Buddy! I decided on Goldeen, since I only need 4 more candies before I am able to evolve it.

I was pretty excited when the update rolled out this week and many new Pokémon became available!

I caught quite a few of the new Johto Pokémon. The first one I caught was Furret, who was standing right on top of my dog!

I also caught Sunkern…

Heracross…

Spinarak…

Cyndaquil…(I don’t know what happened to the picture I took as I caught it?)

cyndaquilpokedex

Hoothoot…

Chinchou…

and finally, Sentret!

I also reached Level 18 and earned a medal for registering 5 Johto region Pokémon to the Pokédex. Overall, it was a pretty successful week for Pokémon GO!

I finally got around to trying out Super Mario Run this week! I’m going to do a First Impressions post for this one too (geez, I have a lot of blog posts I need to write!) so here’s a pic of the loading screen! 😉

No PC gaming this week!

No misc. gaming this week!

So overall, I didn’t have a whole lot of free time for gaming this week. That’s always a bummer. At least I caught a bunch of new Pokémon and beat an iPhone game this week, so that’s progress! Thanks for reading!

My Gaming Week in Review (2/05- 2/11)!

Console

NES

Yesterday, my in-laws came over for dinner and we were going to play a board game afterwards, but it was too hard for my mother-in-law to sit up and play one at the table. My husband surprised us all by bringing out Anticipation, a Trivial Pursuit type game made by Rare way back in 1988!

anticipationtitlescreen

Michael and his parents used to play this game a lot when he was a kid, so it was a blast from the past for everyone! I myself did not play this game until Michael and I met 14 years ago, but it’s a fun game that I still enjoy playing from time to time.

We decided to play in teams; Michael and I on one team, his parents on the other. His mom was actually doing pretty good! Like I said, this game is similar to Trivial Pursuit. Your game piece moves along the board, and you land on a colored square. Each square has a different category. Some of the clues are pretty easy:

whatletter

While others are extremely vague. None of us figured out what this was:

whattoolisthis

The goal of the game is to collect one square of each color in each of the three levels. Whoever passes all three levels first is the winner!

anticipationboard

It was a close game, but Michael and I ended up winning. It was fun! It was nice to see my mother-in-law having some fun, since she hasn’t been feeling well lately. Anyway, playing this game made me really happy and I want to play it again soon!

P.S. Sorry for the glare that is present in all the above photos. From where I was sitting, it was hard to get a good picture!

GameCube

I visited my little Animal Crossing village of Branvil this week for the first time in 5 months. The first thing I noticed when I started up the game was that it was snowing, yay!! I think the snow is one of my favorite parts of the game, especially since I never get to see any in real life!

yayforsnow

Sydney moved away, which was a bummer. She’s a cutie!

sydneymoved

Maple acted like she didn’t know me.

mapleforgotme

And Wart Jr. made me laugh with his crazy comment. Apparently I’m a real shady character…

shadywart

And just like always, Queenie was a big BITCH to me! Why doesn’t she move the fuck away already!

queeniesucks

I met my new neighbor, Buzz. He’s pretty handsome, I think!

meetbuzz

He has kind of a weird house, though.

buzzshouse

I found a snowball hiding in the flowers, which was kinda strange.

After saying hello to everyone, I spent the rest of my evening pulling weeds and shaking trees! I deposited some money in my bank account, too. I wish it was this easy to make money in real life!

Wii U

As I mentioned in my last post, my husband and I finished our playthrough of Yoshi’s Woolly World this week! What a great game it was. Since I’m going to do a separate blog post about finishing the game, I’ll leave you with a screenshot of an oddly-titled level we played!

I played just one level of The Legendary Starfy this week. Apparently the Hot-Spring Snapper (a really rude rock/ turtle thing) was terrorizing Hotcha Springs, and it was up to Starfy to stop him!

everyonepanic

I had to outrun lava, which was super. It moved kinda slow, but I still almost died trying to take this picture!

dontgetburned

The battle against the Snapper wasn’t too bad. I couldn’t get a decent picture of him to save my life, because he wouldn’t stay still!

stupidrockturtle

I am now on Level 3-1 Chillydip Cove: Snow Starfy. This should be fun!

I played some more Cooking Fever this week.  I’m still working on leveling up my Fast Food Court. It not really as bad as I thought it was going to be grind-wise- I find I can upgrade my stuff after playing one or two levels and getting some coins from them. I just don’t upgrade anymore when the upgrade requires gems, because I feel like I need to save my gems to unlock other places. Here are my current stats:

currentstats

I am currently on Level 36 of the Fast Food Court. Only a few more levels until I am finished!

level36

I also played more Pokémon GO. I was very happy to catch a Growlithe- so cute!

I evolved my Ekans into an Arbok.

I also evolved my Exeggcute into an Exeggutor. Finally! Seems like that took forever.

I also played a game called Strike! Ten Pin Bowling.It’s a simple bowling game that both my aunt and my mom played awhile back- I don’t know if they still do or not! Anyway, it’s a fun, free little game that is a great way to pass a couple minutes.

startbowling

For some reason, though, the game erased all my previous high scores! That annoyed me a little bit. Oh well, not like I’m very good at it anyway!

isuckatbowling

I played some Solitaire this week too, and it seems I’m back on my losing streak.

Finally played some Stardew Valley this week! I haven’t played this game for a couple weeks, and I missed it! 🙂 Anyway, I continued clearing out my farm, and I came across this tiny, cute tree!

cuteliltree

I ran into Haley, who was a bitch as always.

yousuckhailey

I finally figured out how to fish!

learningtofish

It’s really fun. I only managed to catch one fish and everything else I caught was trash, but it’s all good. I need to catch more fish, because I am broke!

One of my current objectives is to build a coop. With how expensive it is and how many resources I need, it’ll take me awhile!

expensivecoop

One night when I went to sleep, a fairy came and made one of my crops grow. I don’t know what that’s all about, but thanks, little fairy!

I also grew to Level 1 Farming.

On the 10th of Spring, Year 1, I had a nice surprise when I woke up and was greeted by a friendly dog!

straydog

Marnie explained to me that he was a stray and asked if I wanted to adopt him! BUT OF COURSE I DO! 😉

talktomarnie

I named him Wicky as an homage to a disabled dog that I worked with who has been gone for almost 2 years now. His name was Nykon, but his nickname was Wicky! He was near and dear to my heart and I loved him so much.

namedthedogwicky

While continuing to clear out my farm, I found a geode. When I took it to the blacksmith, it was some rare mineral or something, and it was advised that I donate it to the museum!

donatecelestine

I didn’t even realize it, but when I donated it, I completed an objective in my journal, so I got a nice little reward for it!

archeologyjournalentry

I then grew to Level 1 Foraging.

level1foraging

I am currently on 11th of Spring, Year 1. This game is becoming addicting!

Misc.

While my husband was out and about earlier this week, he came across some VR (virtual reality) headsets for only $6! They are compatible with both of our phones, so he bought one for each of us. I’m going to do a separate write up on this, but here’s a pic of the headset:

So, looks like I was able to do a lot more gaming this week! That’s always a good thing. Thanks for reading!

My Gaming Week in Review (1/22- 1/28)!

My post is a little late this week, sorry about that! I normally like to post my weekly reviews on Sundays, but I had a terrible headache for a couple days that put me behind. Not that I have that much to write about anyway, but let’s see what games I played this week! 🙂

Console

Nintendo Wii U

Michael and I continued to play through Yoshi’s Woolly World. The game is increasing in difficulty a little bit, but nothing we can’t handle! We finished up World 4, which threw some spikes at us as well as some very strange waterfalls, then we faced off in an epic battle against Petey Piranha!

After kicking Petey’s butt, we moved on to World 5. World 5 is an icy, wintery world that is so pretty! Makes me want it to be Christmas again… anyway, check out some screenshots from World 5!

And here’s an adorable snowman and Mega Yarn Yoshi! 🙂

We left off on World 5-6: Up Shuttlethread Pass. I have no idea what that even means, but I guess we’ll find out!

Handheld

Nintendo 3DS

I had time to briefly visit my Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo town of Tilt this week. Remember last week how Poppy wanted me to come over, then Genji immediately wanted to come over to my house? Well, they both sent me gifts for hanging out with them! Genji sent me a boomerang, while Poppy sent me an azalea bush. Thanks, friends!

giftsfromfriends

Poppy tried to tell me she was moving away, but I told her hell no. She’s too cute to leave!

Something new is being built on Main Street!What could it be? 😉

somethingnew

Apples were at a premium at Re-Tail, which was awesome because apples are my native fruit! I immediately ran around and shook all the trees so I could make some easy Bells!

I also got my town-development permit. Now I can start Public Works Projects!

I am still having fun playing Cooking Fever, though it is getting pretty hectic! I still find myself easily confused if I don’t pay close attention to what I’m doing.

lotstodo

At one point, one of my soda machines broke down! I didn’t know this could happen in the game. Luckily, it was fixed quickly. I wonder if anything else can break…

brokensodamachine

I’m enjoying upgrading all my items as well as my actual restaurant. I am now at experience Level 8.

level8

I left off on Level 31 of the Fast Food Court. Maybe I’ll finish these levels soon so I can play one of the other venues, like the bakery! Here are my current stats:

currentstats1

As you can see, there’s still a lot of upgrading I can do. This game keeps you busy for awhile, and I like that.

I played just a little bit of Pokémon GO this week. It wasn’t working properly most of the time when I was trying to play, so oh well. I finally evolved my Staryu into a Starmie…

And I caught a Seadra, you guessed it… at work! 🙂 Seadra is the evolution of Horsea, so now I don’t have to worry about evolving the one I have!

I also reached Level 17.

So, that’s it! Hopefully this new week will bring more gaming adventures for me 😉 Good night!

My Gaming Week in Review (1/15- 1/21)!

Console

Nintendo Wii U

Michael and I played through a bit more of Yoshi’s Woolly World this week. Man I love this game! We currently played up to World 4-7: Yoshi Branches Out.

The levels in World 4 include one with a crazy lunge fish that tries to eat you, an underwater level with very weird physics, and one level where you are swinging on curtains the entire time!

One level that really stuck out to me was World 4-6: Spooky Scraps! Don’t Get Spooked!

world4-7

The name of this level made me laugh, but this is one of the most unique and fun levels I have played thus far. Throughout the level, scraps of fabric pass by and reveal walkways and items not seen normally. You can interact with them, but only when you are behind the scraps of fabric as well. Also, when enemies are behind the fabric, they turn into monsters that chase you!

world4-8

I believe there are only 5 Worlds in this game, so we are getting close to the end. Maybe we will finish up the game next week!

Handheld

Nintendo DS

I played just a couple levels of The Legendary Starfy this week. I figured out that the whole point of the game is for Starfy to help Bunston recover his lost memories…

helpbunston

I fought a giant squid (I love Starfy’s expression in this picture!)…

fightingthesquid

And I played a level that required me to push large rocks around, which was kind of a pain in the ass!

movingrocks

I also came across this weird turtle thing, which obviously really freaked poor Starfy and his friend Moe out!

Nintendo 3DS

I visited my Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome amiibo town of Tilt this week to see what my villagers were up to! Frank had something really philosophical to say….

while Julian told me about one of his strange hobbies!

I met Eloise, who just moved into town.

Poppy invited me over to her house. I hung out on her sofa for a minute.

poppyvisit1poppyvisit2

Immediately after I left Poppy’s house, Genji wanted to come visit my house!

genjivisit1genjivisit2

I decided to check in with Isabelle to see what my approval rating was. To my surprise, I was already at 100%! I didn’t think I really did much to earn it, but hey, I’m not complaining!

I visited the campground, and Gulliver was my visitor for today. Love the beachy theme in his RV!

Believe it or not, I still have yet to see it snow in this game. What gives?!?

I played a game called Cooking Fever this week. I’ve had it on my phone for awhile, but I haven’t played it in quite some time. As you can see from my map below, I only have one restaurant open- the Fast Food Court!

cookingfevermap

Cooking Fever is basically a time management game where customers come up and try to buy items, and it’s up to you to fulfill their orders in a timely manner. At first, it’s pretty easy, but the later levels can get pretty challenging.

easyorder

After playing a little bit, I unlocked the Sports Bar and the Bakery! I haven’t played either of these yet, as I want to finish all the levels in the Fast Food Court first.

unlockedsportsbarandbakery

I am currently on Level 23, and it’s getting pretty tough! The customer’s requests are getting more intricate, and I find myself getting confused easily, haha! It’s a fun game though, and quite addicting. Right now, I’m at experience Level 6.

explevel6

I also played a little bit of Pokémon GO this week. I didn’t do much, but I finally got enough candies to evolve my Meowth into a Persian!

persianpokedex

I then made Caterpie my buddy. I need a few more candies from it to get the final evolution (Butterfree). It’s so cute on my shoulder! 🙂

buddycaterpie

Also, I came across this bad boy at work! It kind of blends into the shelf a little bit.

I had no Pokéballs, so I couldn’t even try to catch it! However, its CP was pretty high, so my efforts probably would have been in vain anyway.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I played Stardew Valley this week. I pretty much wrote about everything I did, so I don’t need to repeat it here! However, here are a couple additional screenshots from my gameplay this week! Here we have a nice, rainy day…
