Last week, I dusted off my Wii Fit board and started playing Wii Fit Plus! Despite the fact that it had been a LONG time since I’ve played, I jumped right back in. I played for a couple days, trying out all the different activities to just get a feel for them once again.
This week, I played twice. I like to do a Body Test every time I play, just to see what my Wii Fit Age is. On Tuesday, it was 32- only 2 years above my actual age, so not bad!
Despite this fact, the game felt it necessary to antagonize me a bit…
Anyway, I decided to focus on Yoga…
And despite my “poor balance” I managed to snag a high score on one of the exercises!
I played again on Thursday, took another body test, and was happy to see that this time my Wii Fit Age was 29! Suck it, Wii Fit!
I focused on Strength Training this time…
And the game found it necessary to antagonize me again!
Oddly enough, my right ankle was hurting me that day, so maybe there was some truth to that statement. Whatever! Then I did a plank and I cracked up…
Those that know me would definitely not describe me as a body builder! Haha! Anyway, I am enjoying the fact that I have gotten back into this game. It has exercises that are easy enough for me to do without feeling like I am going to die, so hopefully I can stick with it for awhile! 🙂
Nintendo Wii U
I decided to show my Wii U some love this week and play Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival. Despite this being a slower-paced game, I still enjoy it. I’m months behind, so I picked the March 2016 board and started playing!
Goldie was the host of the game, and she looked adorable as usual!
Right off the bat, I lost money on almost every space I landed on. Ugh!
Lots of special characters came to visit, including Katie, Katrina, Phineas, Shrunk and Red.
Shamrock Day was the 17th, but nothing really special happened. 😦
There was a Fishing Tourney on the 19th. I caught a bluegill, which got me 3rd place.
I laughed at one of the computer characters, who had an unfortunate incident:
The 27th was Bunny Day! Zipper T. Bunny showed up and told us to look for eggs. I earned 11 Happy Points for finding 11 eggs.
In the end, I got 3rd place. Oh well, I never seem to win when I play this game!
Nintendo Game Boy
I made a little bit of progress in Pokémon Blue this week! First of all, my Butterfree learned Poison Powder, yay!
Finally, I leveled up all of my Pokémon to Level 15, so I was ready to challenge Brock in the Pewter City Gym.
When I arrived at the Gym, some chump dared to challenge me while I was trying to find Brock. I made quick work of his Diglett and Sandshrew. In between fighting his two Pokémon, Squirtle leveled up!
After the battle, my Squirtle evolved into Wartortle! Hell yeah!
I proceeded to Brock, who didn’t seem like that bad of a guy. I kicked his butt anyway! He had a Geodude and an Onyx, and I made quick work of them both.
Wartortle grew to level 17, too! I then received the Boulder Badge for my troubles.
Honestly, I think I may have leveled up a bit TOO much before that battle. My Squirtle/ Wartortle had A LOT of power. Oh well. On to the next Gym!
I took some time to pay a visit to my little look-alikes in Tomodachi Life, which I haven’t done in forever! It was pretty late when I played, so a lot of them were asleep. My look-alike (not surprisingly) was still awake and was playing with a puppy!
I decided to give her a makeover and change up her interior design. She seemed pretty pleased with it!
Marge seemed pretty… thrilled to see me…
While Frankie was too hungry to think about anything else! I gave him some barbeque, which he loved.
Cheryl complained about her hair…
And I fed Diana something she totally hated! (Can’t remember exactly what it was though, haha!)
Ryu learned to rock & roll…
While Lee and Tové both wondered the same thing!
I discovered that although I had made her awhile ago, I had NEVER stopped in to say hello to Judy! Oops! I felt bad, so I fed her, gave her a new outfit, and changed her interior. Hope we are friends now!
I also realized that I had never spoken to David, but that’s not that big of a deal- I made him the last time I played, and turned the system off before speaking to him.
I then created Jenn, who seems to be quite the happy camper, despite the scowl on her face!
Before I turned the game off, I noticed someone was on top of the tower. I zoomed in and witnessed Carolyn doing something incredibly bizarre. She was leaning backwards, staring at the sky. Occasionally she would wave emphatically! Was she staring at aliens? Is she just nuts? We will probably never find out!
As I wrote about in my last entry, I tried out- and quickly deleted- the monstrosity known as I Am Bread. Uggh! Moving on…
I had quite a productive week in Pokémon GO! In one trip, I managed to catch a Krabby, an Eevee, and a Staryu!
I then hit Level 5 and caught an Oddish! I really like his little smile 😉
An egg I had been incubating hatched, but it was only a Rattata!
I then caught an Exeggcute!
After all that, it was time to choose my team. I listened as each team told me why I should join them.
In the end, I chose team Valor! I love the phoenix logo.
My next trip, I quickly caught a Bellsprout. I was heading through downtown in my city- there are a shit-ton of Pokéstops around here! Lucky me!
Next, I earned a medal for catching 10 Flying-type Pokémon. I was then thrilled to catch a Raticate! He was a little asshole too, he broke out of like 5 Pokéballs before I nabbed him! After catching him, I earned another medal, this time for catching 30 Pokémon.
Next, an Abra popped up, followed by a Nidoran! After catching those two, I leveled up, then earned yet another medal!
Overall, I would say it was a very successful week for Pokémon GO. I am still only playing it casually, and I am really enjoying it. I haven’t been to any Gyms yet to train, but hopefully I will soon!
So as you can see, I was able to enjoy several games this week, even if I didn’t play any of them for long periods of time. I am super happy when I get to relax and enjoy gaming, so it was a good week for me! 🙂
