I haven’t done it in a little while, but I thought I’d bring back My Gaming Week in Review for the new year! I always enjoyed writing this type of summary post, and it helps me keep track of my gaming! Let’s see if I can keep up with this on a regular basis- I tend to be awfully flighty, haha! 😉
First, though, I want to say thank you to The Shameful Narcissist who has so nicely awarded me with a blogging award called The Sunshine Blogger Award! 🙂 I’m so excited to receive another reward! I have a couple more blog posts planned, and then I will post all about it!
So, let’s get to what I played this week!
Michael and I continued playing Yoshi’s Woolly World this week. We both love this game! It’s so cute and vibrant. Here are some screenshots from World 2:
This level’s name really cracked me up for some reason:
Although the “Blargg” was a very rude creature who kept trying to attack me and push me into the lava! I remember those jerks from Yoshi’s Island…
The best part about World 2, though, was POOCHY!
I love Poochy! Here’s a few more screenshots of him just being awesome!
So we then moved on to World 3…
And we knitted together a few more Yoshis, but I’ll get better pics of them later! We left off on World 4-1, so I’m sure we will continue on with our adventure this week!
Something I do every now and then is play an “easy” game before bed. Something I don’t have to spend a lot of time or effort on but that is still fun. I decided to resurrect this idea and play a game that is cute, simple, and one that I never played all the way through- The Legendary Starfy!
This game is so adorable. I previously only played through the first 3 levels (shame on me!) so I just started a new game. Despite being underwater most of the time, the controls are actually pretty easy.
Plus, Starfy is just so HAPPY. I mean, just look at the joy on his face when he does something as simple as jump in the air!
Ironically, I left off where I did before, but I don’t plan on stopping here! I want to play the game through this time, even if I just play one level before bed at night. In the meantime, enjoy Starfy in his beachwear outfit and sunglasses!
As you probably figured from my last entry, I also played some Tomodachi Life this week. After doing those pictures with my Grampy, I decided to check in on my islanders, many of whom told me they hadn’t seen me in 3 months! Oops!
Anyway, one of the first things I noticed was that Kevin was sad that he and Marge had broken up. He replayed a montage of good times in his head, and it took me forever to get him out of his mopey mood!
However, not more than 15 minutes later, Jason begged Marge to be with him. Frank (Grampy!) tried to say he loved her more, but she still went with Jason. Kevin who?
Also, Dani attempted to hook up with Steve, but he stood her up at the cafe. That bastard!
I found Isabella’s super all-time favorite food…
As well as Skye’s worst-ever food!
And Steve, paying no mind to Dani’s broken heart, wanted some clothes to “up his cool factor.” I found an outfit that said just that in the clothing store, and he loved it!
So, things are just as quirky as ever on Crickie Island. Never a dull moment there!
I didn’t do any mobile gaming this week!
I FINALLY bought and started playing Stardew Valley this week! I have been wanting this game for quite some time, but was holding out for the Wii U version. Once that got cancelled, I decided to buy it on Steam. I’m going to do a First Impressions post of this soon, so stayed tuned for that. But here’s what the adorable icon looks like on my desktop! 😉
Finally, I played a little bit of my Retro Machine that Michael got me for my birthday last year! For those that aren’t familiar, it’s a cute little tabletop arcade system with 200 games built in! I’ve played some of the games, but not all of them. I want to eventually play through all of them, so I started right at the top with F-22!
F-22 is a pretty cool little shooter. It’s kind of like a mix between Space Invaders and Galaga, and its difficulty is pretty unforgiving.
At one point, I did get to a boss…
but right after I took that picture, I died, and I had to start the level ALL OVER. Bullshit! Oh well. Still fun though!
So those were my gaming adventures this week! See ya!
