My Gaming Month in Review: September 2017!

It’s officially fall, October is here, Halloween is right around the corner… this is one of my favorite times of year! We don’t really have much of a “fall” where I live, but I live vicariously through my Animal Crossing towns! Wow, I just realized how sad that sounded… ha! Anyway, here’s a look at the games I played in September!

I continued playing Doubutsu no Mori for the N64 so I could pay off more of my debt! The rainy season continued… nearly every time I played, it was raining!

However, on September 30th, it was a nice, sunny day with lots of bugs jumping around. It was as if summer was saying goodbye!

I was eager to make more money to pay off more of my mortgage, but when I went to Nook’s, I discovered the lottery was happening! I forgot that on the last day of the month, there is a lottery and you can’t sell anything. Dammit! I couldn’t even play, because I didn’t have any tickets. 😦

I still made a small payment towards my mortgage anyway. I now owe 213,000 Bells!

In Harvest Moon: Animal Parade for the Wii, Owen sent me a love letter!

He still seems a little pushy, haha.

I entered the Harvest Festival vegetable contest, but apparently I had no idea what I was doing, because I got last place! Ugh!

Finally, Fall turned into Winter! Winter is so beautiful… and I love when the snow falls! I also love the music that plays during this season. It’s like a mix between Animal Crossing and the Sims! 🙂

However… why the fuck do giant rocks randomly appear in my field sometimes?!

I had enough money and materials to upgrade my house, woo hoo! I was surprised the change was immediate. I figured I’d at least have to wait a day!

Finally, I got Renee’s wish! Three people down, seven more to go!

I decided it was time to get another animal, so I bought a foal and named it Rodeo. How cute!

I also met the snowman, who is totally awesome! He gives you presents every morning if you give him a nose, haha! I gave him a carrot to use as a nose, which was just what he wanted!

The first present I got from the snowman was a perfect potato. This is just what I needed to make Humphrey the Hippo a veggie pizza so his ass would go back to the circus. Whew!

Lastly, Owen said he wanted to talk to me. He asked me to be his girlfriend, so now it’s official! 🙂

As of the end of September, I was on Year 1, Winter, Day 8.

Oh, and, um, it said my pet snake and I were practically twins. Thanks?

I wanted to get into the Halloween mood, so I decided to play a game I’ve had on my iPad for awhile called Haunted Halloween Escape.

This game is exactly what it sounds like- you have to escape from a haunted room. The graphics are a bit blurry and not that great.

Some parts of the game are silly- like, why is this ghost blocking the desk?

Don’t get me started on this cheesy vampire.

I found the recipe to escape… and discovered I kind of suck at puzzle solving.

When I escaped, Dracula was at the door, but after I gave him some candy, he went away. No, I’m not kidding.

Maybe I shouldn’t have played this game before bed, but I felt like it was more irritating than anything. The graphics weren’t great, some of the puzzles weren’t even clear, and there were also a few misspellings that were kind of silly. A decent game to waste a half hour on, I suppose, but not one I’ll be playing again.

I did make a small amount of progress on Juice Cubes for the iPhone, stopping on Level 36. It forces you to wait at this point until you collect “map pieces” which is kind of lame. But since summer is over, my time playing this game is over for now! 🙂

I made a little bit of progress in The Legendary Starfy this month too. I played a level in which you had to swim through bubbles, and surprisingly it was kind of fun!

Overall, though, I feel like I just want to get through these levels as quickly as possible. I don’t really care about finding any extras, I just want this game done.

I beat the boss of Sogwood Forest and got the 5th shard, go me!

Another stage, another annoying gameplay mechanic… you have to spin/ step on a button to make the water rise, and it really sucks!

As of the end of September, I was on Stage 5-2 Glitzem Grotto: Rickety Ride.

Lastly, this month I checked in on all my little friends in Tomodachi Life! Since my cousin recently had a baby, I decided to add him into the mix. Welcome, Cameron! 🙂

The first food I fed him- a cheeseburger- turned out to be his super all time favorite food!

Meanwhile, Don dreamed that he was a skeleton keychain dangling off of a backpack. Wow.

So, that about wraps it up for my gaming month in review. See ya next time!
