End Game Thoughts: The Legendary Starfy!

Game Title: The Legendary Starfy
Platform: Nintendo DS
Hours Played: Approximately 8-10

About the Game

Image result for the legendary starfy

The Legendary Starfy was released in North America in 2009 for the Nintendo DS. Though Starfy (or Stafy, as he’s called in Japan) had been around for a few years, this is actually the first game in the series to be released outside of Japan. After playing this annoying ass game, that’s fine with me!

Anyway, the premise of the game revolves around the absolutely adorable little star named…. um, Starfy. Some damn rabbit falls on top of him while he’s sleeping and says he lost his memory and he needs help to get home. Some dudes keep trying to kidnap the rabbit and as the game goes on, more about who the rabbit actually is will be revealed to you. But by that time, you’ll be trying so hard not to throw your fucking DS up against the wall, you don’t care who the rabbit is, or why he’s such a hot commodity.

What I Liked

starfypushedbysteam

Starfy is one of the CUTEST lil characters that I ever did see. His design is simple… I mean, he’s a star lol. I love the fact that even when shit is going down, he is there with a smile on his face. Throughout the game, I found some cute outfits for him, which made me want to hug and squeeze him even more.

helpbunston

Starfy’s friends are pretty cool too… Moe in particular. He’s grumpy but lovable.

Also, the cutscenes in this game were presented like they were panels in a comic book, which I thought was pretty cool!

What I Didn’t Like

dontgetburned
This sums up how I felt playing this game…

I DIDN’T LIKE THIS GAME. There. I said it. I wanted to love it. It was cute and colorful and ANNOYING AS FUCK. It started out simple enough, then got difficult in a very annoying way.

I don’t mind when games are difficult. I welcome the challenge in most cases. The Legendary Starfy is not a game that is “difficult”, but it is a game that you will die many times in because of the incredibly cheap deaths. There is a huge difference between a game being difficult in a good way and a game being difficult in a cheap, aggravating way. Starfy falls in the latter category. Some of the levels shouldn’t have been hard, but they were simply because they relied on really cheap mechanics.

There are many examples I could give to explain my aggravation, but one thing that pissed me off time and time again were levels that had long gap jumps in them. They were almost impossible to time right, and it’s like they were totally luck based. Sometimes you’d make it, sometimes you wouldn’t. It was enough to make me want to scream!

Closing Thoughts

boobcorns
This made me laugh way more than it should have!

On the exterior, The Legendary Starfy has many things I love: cute characters, cute graphics, catchy music. The gameplay mechanics literally ruin the game for me, though. I don’t want to play a game that constantly pisses me off! I hate to be so harsh, especially because I’ve seen many positive reviews for this game. Maybe I just suck at playing games! Regardless, by the end of this game I was not having fun at all and I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

PS: Why does WordPress randomly unfollow people sometimes?!? Uggh!!! On more than one occasion, I’ll notice that I’m no longer following someone. I don’t always catch it right away, either. Pain in the ass!

My Gaming Month in Review: July 2018!

Console

Nintendo 64

After continuing to plug away at Doubutsu no Mori, I finally paid off my house loan!

paidoffloan
Yes, I got stung by a bee, don’t hate!

Tanukichi was apologetic when he said he couldn’t upgrade my house any further, but he said he wanted to build a monument for me to commemorate my accomplishment. How nice of him!

mystatue
Immortalized in gold.

Also, this Google Translate made me laugh so hard….

funnytranslation
Really?!

Nintendo Wii

Since my loan is fully paid off in Doubutsu no Mori, I decided to move on to the next Animal Crossing game I need to do so in, which happens to be Animal Crossing: City Folk. As I’ve previously mentioned, this is the Animal Crossing that I’ve put the least amount of time into, so I have a long way to go!

When I booted up the game, my pals told me I hadn’t seen them in 3 months. Sorry!

I walked around picking weeds and talking to everyone, enjoying the stormy weather. I also met my new neighbor, Moe!

newneighbormoe
He’s a cutie!

I couldn’t remember what version of Nook’s store I had in this game, so I went to take a look. To my surprise, I had Nookington’s! It was closed for the night, though.

nookingtonscityfolk
I don’t know why fancy clothes are shown in the window when he doesn’t even sell clothes…

Not much else happened this month. To make money, I caught a bunch of fish. However, I realized that I had only 4 fish that I had donated to the museum… I like to always donate one of each kind of fish (or bug) to the museum, so I ended up donated most of my catches. Oh well.

Currently, I owe 248,000 bells on my loan.

******

Despite my greatest efforts, I only managed to get “Master” ranking at the end of Summer in Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, which is the ranking below Hero. I was SO PISSED, because I really thought I had it. I feel like the game royally screwed me over, and I almost gave it up. However, being so close to the end irritated me and I want to actually beat it, so I decided to try again in the Fall.

Turns out, you can fast-forward your gameplay a little bit by sleeping all the way through the day! So I settled into a routine of waking up, checking my crops and animals, then going right back to bed. I even considered selling my animals just so I didn’t even have to worry about them, but… their cute little digital faces made me feel guilty.

The only crops I planted were Bluemist flowers, which turned the easiest profit. I also put a shitload of fertilizer down to make them grow faster. I really didn’t want to take any chances this season!

Finally, at the end of the season…

ultimatefarmer
Ultimate Farmer bitches!

Sweet! The ultimate ranking is the top ranking you can get. Damn skippy! The next day, I raced up the mountain to ring all the bells.

ringallbells
Trippy…

The somewhat douchey Harvest King returned and restored the goddess tree.

doucheyharvestking
Oh shut up already!

A brief ending sequence played, and the game was beaten! FINALLY! I’ll probably write some sort of wrap up for this game in a later blog entry, if I get around to it.

Handheld

Nintendo DS

After months of ignoring the bane of my existence The Legendary Starfy, I decided I was ready to finish it up! I had left off on Level 8-2, so I didn’t really have much left to do! The level immediately aggravated me by starting out with one of those stupid gap jumps that are impossible to judge so you just die a million times before you figure it out!

I played a train section with some damn cheesy graphics…

cheesytrain
Hmmm….

After a couple more slightly annoying levels, I made it to the final boss, Mashtooth. Oh my god… what a huge pain in the ass he was!

annoyingmashtooth
I hate him.

This annoying asshole had a couple different forms you had to fight, and each time you lost, you had to start all over. The plus side of this is I started to become pretty good at fighting his first form! His second form was difficult, though, and gave me some trouble.

The last “form” wasn’t really a fight… I just had to push the moon back at him a couple times. Ha, that sounds so dumb when I actually write it out! Anyway, I finally beat the stupid mother fucker, which means….

beatstarfy

I FINALLY BEAT THE LEGENDARY STARFY OMG! There are some end game levels to play, but I’d be lying if I said I was interested in playing them.

iPhone

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, I participated in Fishing Tourney #3! I ended up missing a couple days of gameplay though, due to being busy around the 4th of July and not really wanting to play. I only got a bronze trophy, but oh well.

fishingtourney3results

Another July event was Kapp’n’s Bloomin’ Booty, which was a sunflower themed garden event. Meh… you probably know how I feel about gardening events by now. I got a couple cute items, but didn’t really care to participate too much.

kappnatcamp

Also, can I just tell you how pissed I am that there are several seriously cool beachy items, but you have to buy fortune cookies to have a CHANCE to get one?! I mean, you could buy 5 fortune cookies and get 5 of the same thing… sorry, I’m not wasting my Leaf Tickets on that shit. Hopefully I’ll be able to buy one or two with some Bells, but otherwise, no beach stuff for me.

Oh, I finally paid off my loan for my van. Woo!

paidoffloanpocketcamp

The 3rd event for July was the Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt #3, this time with adorable little jelly gyroidites! I really liked the furniture this time around.

huntingjellygyroidites

Surprisingly, there was another Fishing Tourney… but I really sucked at it this time around. I didn’t play much, and I ended with another bronze trophy. I didn’t even get a pic of my results, sorry!

My birthday was July 26th, and my friend Callula sent me a message telling me to check her campsite out. She had it decorated with birthday/ party decorations for me, which I thought was really awesome!

callulabdaycampsite

Lastly… I got Stitches’ picture! Aww!!

stitchespic

Here’s what my campsite looks like:

Currently, I’m at Level 87, and I have 102/ 104 animals invited to my campsite.

******

Also, I decided to try out Pokemon Quest.

pokemonquesttitlescreen

It was very cute but… I just wasn’t a big fan.

Maybe I just wasn’t in a good mood when I played it, but it seems like there’s many different things going on, and it just wasn’t something I was interested in continuing to play. Also, I’m tired of free to start games with energy shit, so there’s that.

So that’s what I was up to in July! Like I said, my birthday was July 26th, and I got some cool gaming related stuff that I will share with y’all in a later post! Thanks for reading! 🙂

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!

niceendofseptday

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. 😦

raffleday

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

owe213kbells

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!

lastplaceloser

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! 🙂

niceandsnowyprettywinter

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

giantrandomrocks

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!

newhorserodeo

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?

twinswithslither

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.

hauntedhalloweenescapetitlescreen

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?

theghostisblockingthedesk

Don’t get me started on this cheesy vampire.

dumbassvampire

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

cantescape

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

dumbdracula

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! 🙂

level36

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!

bubblelevel

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.

weirdbutcute

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

ronkboss

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

annoyingbuttons

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

starfyprogress

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! 🙂

welcomecameron

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!

 

My Gaming Month in Review: August 2017!

Well, I have been sick all this week with a lovely cold! It’s a little early for that, isn’t it? I hope that doesn’t mean I’ll be sick all through the fall and winter!

Besides the cold, I am NERVOUS because I live in Central Florida, and Hurricane Irma is supposed to start impacting our weather Sunday. The hurricane is so big and covers such a wide area! The track has shifted a few times, and none of those shifts have been in our favor… it’s been crazy this week as people have been stocking up on supplies and getting their houses ready. I’m still hoping it shifts away from us… anyway, let’s just hope for the best here!

Now to talk about something much more fun… video games of course! I didn’t get a ton of gaming time in for August, but I still managed to make some progress in a few of my games!

First of all, Michael and I had a bit of fun this month playing some games on our Atari Flashback 7 console! I just love Atari games. Anyway, the Atari Flashback 7 has 101 games to choose from, so there’s a ton of different options here! We played a few of them, including Bowling, Frog Pond, Hangman, Miniature Golf, Night Driver, Sky Diver, and Slot Racers.

Night Driver game me a damn headache, and we couldn’t figure out Sky Diver for the life of us, but the other games were a blast to play. Frog Pond had us laughing so hard trying to get our frogs to move and eat the flies! It was simple, silly fun.

I played Doubutsu no Mori a little bit on the N64 this month as well. It seems like it’s always raining when I play!

alwaysraining

I FINALLY witnessed a balloon getting stuck in a tree, and I eagerly shook the present down! Inside was… an annoying executive’s toy. Yippee.

presentintree

One day when I started up the N64, a message popped up on the screen that I hadn’t seen before. I was a little worried, until I realized that the controller wasn’t all the way plugged in! Still, the literal translation of “please throttle controller 1” gave me a good laugh!

throttlecontroller1

I continued working towards paying my debt on my house, and one of the best ways to do that is by fishing. I know I’ve said it before, but fishing is such a royal pain in the ass in this game! My reaction time is way too slow, I guess.

As it stands, I still owe 285,000 Bells to Tom Nook. One day my debt will be paid!

285kbellsleft

Meanwhile, in Harvest Moon: Animal Parade for the Wii, I finally got Bo’s wish! Two people down, eight more to go. I’m getting close to hearing Renee’s wish.

bowish

Owen is seriously crushing on me, lol! I sound like a middle schooler. 😉 It is adorable to watch, though. He asked me on a random date at one point, which I thought was pretty cool. I wasn’t expecting such a random event- makes the romance a little more “realistic” in my opinion!

At the end of August, I was on Year 1, Autumn, Day 26…. I didn’t get a screenshot of my progress though!

I also continued playing Juice Cubes on my iPhone. There were some limited time vacation levels to play, set in a world where everything was frozen solid. These levels are really hard! I only played the first level.

juicecubesvacationisland

Back in the main game, the levels are still pretty tricky. I beat Level 29 on the very last turn!

Currently, I’m on Level 35.

juicecubeslv35

I’m still slogging my way through The Legendary Starfy on the Nintendo DS. The game is so cute, but the gameplay mechanics are so weird sometimes… and I think that’s why it’s taking me so long to beat this.

starfymushroom

It’s such a pretty game though!

starfycute

Also, I spent way too much time laughing at this screenshot:

boobcorns

Yes, I am aware that sometimes I have the same humor as a 12 year old boy. So be it! I’m currently on Level 4-3: Sogwood Forest: The Papes Chase.

That’s it for my gaming fun in August. I had a really productive month in Pokémon GO, which I will detail in my next blog post. 🙂

What I’ve Been Playing Lately!

I know I haven’t been very good at posting much about the games I’ve been playing lately- sorry! It was fun to do my “Gaming Week in Review” posts, but it started to become a little bit of a chore. I feel like when it’s time to sit down and play a game, I want to just PLAY it, not worry about taking screenshots and remembering what I was doing to give a play by play of it later. So, I figured if I did more of a summary post of what I’ve been playing, that would be easier and more fun to do! Doing this once every few weeks or so is much less stressful than trying to put out a post like that every week.

Anyway, I’ve decided that I’m going to follow a format for gaming that I came up with awhile back: I’ll try to focus on one console game, one handheld game, and one mobile game at a time so that I actually finish more of my games! 😉

With that being said, the console game I am currently playing is still Harvest Moon: Animal Parade for the Nintendo Wii. I am still loving this game! I’ve made considerable progress since the last time I posted about it. There are 5 bells to ring in order to restore power to the Harvest Goddess and get everything running as it should be, and I’ve already managed to ring 4 of them! The only one I have left is the Purple Bell, which is literally going to take forever. You have to become friends with 10 people and hear their wishes. Once you hear their wishes, you take the wish to a shrine because they can’t seem to do it their damn selves!

I haven’t quite become friends with anyone yet, though I am currently working on Owen. I also want Owen to become my husband, so I give him the gift of rice every day and he is warming up to me, haha!

owengift
He gave me a gift… I think he likes me! 😉

Honestly, it doesn’t bother me that it is going to take awhile to ring the Purple Bell. I have so many upgrades I need to make to my farm, and there are so many different things to do, this game will keep me busy for a long time! Here is a screenshot of my current progress:

currentprogress

And this is how much money I’ve made so far. Not bad at all!

60daysin

As far as handheld gaming goes, I’ve decided to forge ahead with The Legendary Starfy for the Nintendo DS. It is a fun game, but for some reason I play it, then put it away for long periods of time without actually finishing it! I’m going to try really hard to see this to completion, though. The last level I beat in this game was a boss battle against King Ping:

vskingping
Starfy is happy, but I’m aggravated!

This guy was a total annoying douche who killed me a bunch of times because the attacks in this game are extremely cheap and you die way easier than you actually should! Ugh! I finally beat him though, and now I am getting ready to enter Sogwood Forest, which should be super wonderful.

sogwoodforest

World 4-1: Sogwood Forest: In a Fog is the exact name of the level I am currently on, in case you care!

In the world of mobile gaming, I’ve picked back up Juice Cubes on my iPhone! It’s a cute little game I’ve played before but never beaten, and the developers have added many levels on since the last time I’ve played. This game has a fun summertime vibe that I figured is perfect since it’s now summer! I’ve started from the beginning just to get myself re-acquainted with the game, so I’m only on Level 3!

level3
The “Target Score” is actually just my high score since I’ve already beaten the level. I don’t know what the original Target Score is!

level3jc

Even though there are three main games I am focusing on, there’s always room to play one of the Animal Crossing games! 🙂 Currently I’ve been playing Doubutsu no Mori for the Nintendo 64. I want to finally pay off my house! So I’ve been fishing, digging up fossils, and shaking trees to try to make tons of Bells! It’s been raining every time I play lately, but I don’t mind. The rain is soothing in all of the Animal Crossing games!

rainrain
I just realized how much this screenshot sucks- you can’t really tell it’s raining! Oops!

I currently owe 339,000 Bells on this current expansion, so it’ll be awhile before my house is paid off.

makinghousepayment

There’s also always room to play Pokémon GO as well! I’ll do a separate post at the end of the month to fill you in on the new Pokémon I’ve acquired! 😉

So there you have it for the games I’ve been playing lately! I wish I had more time to play, but what else is new!

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!

Mobile

iPhone

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!

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.

Steam

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!

helpfulfairy

I also grew to Level 1 Farming.

level1farming

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:

vrheadset

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 (1/29- 2/04)!

Console

Nintendo 64

I finally showed some loved to my poor, abandoned Doubutsu no Mori town of Weezey this week! Many of my villagers expressed their displeasure about the fact that they had not seen me in 5 months! Sorry, guys!

cutedalman

My favorite villager, Sutoroberi, told me I hadn’t spoken to her in 8 months, which is pretty sad!

The saddest thing, however, was when I spoke to Hippocrates and this dialogue popped up.

Hippocrates is kind of blending into his house… oops.

Roughly translated, he is saying that he waited around for me for 10 months and was excited, but then he wondered if I disliked him because he never saw me! Then he said something else that I didn’t translate and me being the click-happy fool I am, whatever response I chose made him sad! I KNOW he’s not real, but I still felt bad. I’m going to send him a present to try to make it up to him!

I found an igloo, so I popped in and had a visit with Hyakupa. I’m not really sure what is cooking behind her, but it kept inflating and deflating every few seconds. It’s different from the little pot of chowder that is in the localized version of Animal Crossing. If anyone knows what that is, please let me know! 🙂

Anyway, I actually played this game for a couple hours, just talking to my villagers and finding ways to make money so I can pay off my ungodly mortgage payment! I was playing as the sun was setting, and I like the way it looked in this picture!

One thing I noticed that was weird… despite the fact that I had not played in 5 months, not ONE weed was in my town! Not that I’m complaining or anything. Maybe weeds don’t grow in the winter in this game?

After a little while, I took a break from playing. When I loaded my game again, it was snowing!

This probably doesn’t sound overly exciting, but I know in Animal Crossing for the GameCube, the weather is what it is all day long and it doesn’t change.  So the fact that this game has weather changes throughout the day is pretty cool!

Since it was Saturday, I stopped by the railroad tracks and had Totakeke play a song for me. Don’t ask me what it was though, for some reason I couldn’t translate it!

I spent the rest of my time shaking trees and fishing so I could earn more cash! One of these days my mortgage will be paid off…

Ignore my eyeball. As usual, I got stung by bees.

I made some progress in The Legendary Starfy this week. I continued my journey in Hotcha Springs, where Starfy happily flew through the air, pushed upwards by hot steam…

Weee, he’s so happy!

And he also pushed some stupid rocks around to… pop some little fish so I could get through a door.

He doesn’t look like he’s having fun anymore…

Seriously. Pushing rocks around underwater kind of sucks. Anyway, Starfy also learned how to glide through the air so he could save these weird little octopi called The Squirts, who make a name for themselves telling really awful jokes.

Both Starfy and the octopus were moving when I took this pic, so it’s a little blurry. Sorry!

This game is kind of insane, but I like it! I left off on Level 2-4 Hotcha Springs: Hot-Spring Snapper Battle.

I checked on my little town of Tilt in Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome amiibo. The first thing I did was link my town to my Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer file. I’ve been meaning to do that since I got the game. 🙂 Now I can get exclusive furniture and all that fun stuff!

They gave me a Nook’s Homes Model as a welcoming gift. My house is way too small to display it right now, but I’m definitely keeping it!

While I was shaking trees, a washer/ dryer came out. Weird, but I’ll take it!

I discovered Gulliver for the first time on the beach! Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure I guessed where he was going incorrectly. Whoops!

Joan was camping at the campground that night. I haven’t seen her there before!

Even though I was playing pretty late and all the shops were closed, I still looked on Main Street. The Gardening Shop has been built!

Not really any mobile gaming this week. I did play a little Pokémon GO, but my progress was negligible.
