Four in February (in March) Progress, Week 1!

I’ve decided to forgo my normal “Gaming Week in Review” posts in favor of writing about my progress in the Four in February (in March) challenge! How did I do my first week? Pretty shitty, it turns out! Look at me, I’m not even writing this post until halfway through the second week! Haha, I am not very good at meeting deadlines… anyway, here’s my progress for each game!

One Game I’ve Been Playing Anyway- Super Mario Run!

I actually did make pretty decent progress in Super Mario Run this week. I kicked ass so hard in Toad Rally, the person I was up against didn’t have any Toads left!

I leveled up my kingdom to Level 5!

Here’s a few screenshots from my gameplay this week.

At the end of last week, I was on World 5-4 Rings of Fire! I’ve since passed that level, but that will have to be discussed in the Week 2 post! 😉

One Game I Should Have Definitely Beaten By Now- Pokémon Blue!

Nope, haven’t touched it. I keep meaning to charge up my Game Boy Advance SP so I can make some progress, but it just hasn’t happened yet.

One Game I’ve Had Forever and Haven’t Touched- Harvest Moon: Animal Parade!

Still haven’t touched it.

One Game Together- ZombiU!

Michael and I have made progress in ZombiU! I’m not quite sure how far we are- I haven’t read about it or watched any videos so I don’t spoil anything. We are having fun trying to get the hell out of London!

This game is not easy. The controls are a little odd to get used to, you have limited ammo, and once you die, your character is forever dead! Luckily, there are many potential characters to play as, so once you kill one off, another one is immediately ready to play where you left off.

This zombie’s face cracks me up!

One thing that annoys me a little bit about this game is the fact that I often feel like I am running fool’s errands- go fetch this, go sneak into this building, no wait go back into the first building, hang on, now I need a random fucking book- I feel like this “Prepper” guy along with the doctor in the Buckingham Palace are just trying to get us killed!

The game is also a little glitchy. We died at one point because a room was completely empty so we walked through it, then turned to walk back out only to find that there were at least 7 zombies in there! Another time, we got completely stuck to a wall and couldn’t turn around.

Despite my complaints, I am still really having fun with this game! I’m interested to see where it all ends. Currently, our mission is to Raid the Military Armory.

Bonus Game- Pokémon GO!

I mostly always play a little Pokémon GO during the week, so why not add that to my little weekly review? I’m pretty low on PokéBalls, so I couldn’t play very much. However, I still managed to catch a Marill…

a Swinub…

a Chikorita…

and a Wartortle!

Well, I kind of sucked at playing my chosen games this week. Hopefully Week 2 will be a little more successful! 🙂

 

My Gaming Week in Review (2/26- 3/04)!

Console

Nintendo Wii

I popped in to say hello to my villagers in my Animal Crossing: City Folk town of Spookie this week. The snow has melted, and spring is here!

So much green! I love all seasons in Animal Crossing.

I was getting ready to say hello to everyone when I realized I had a letter in my mailbox from Queenie that I apparently already opened. I didn’t remember getting a letter from her, so I read it (again).

HAHA YES! BYE BITCH! I don’t know how I forgot she moved away from my town, but I am very happy anyway!

Prince let me know that I had been gone for 8 months. Sorry buddy! Real life really gets in the way of my gaming life sometimes.

Angus was all packed up and ready to move out, but I never got an option to be able to change his mind no matter how many times I talked to him! Bummer. He’s kinda cool.

I went into Nan’s house and was fascinated by the fact that she had a dung beetle as a pet. It was rolling poo round and round. Who wants a pet like that?

Bella came up with a new nickname for me. I’ll take it, I guess…

Nintendo Wii U

As I mentioned in my Four in February… in March! post, Michael and I recently started playing ZombiU together! It’s a really fun game that makes you think about the actions you are taking- you can’t just run in, guns blazing, and kill all the zombies. I will write more details about our progress when I do an update on my challenge later this week, but for now, here’s the box art for ZombiU!

Handheld

No Handheld Gaming this week!

Mobile

iPhone

But OF COURSE I played more Pokémon GO this week! I caught a Wobbuffet…

a Murkrow…

a Ledyba…

a Wooper (who is SO CUTE)…

a Remoraid…

and a Party Hat Pikachu! Yay! He just randomly popped up in my house. I don’t know why, but I really love the special edition Pikachus 😉

I also played Super Mario Run. Obviously I haven’t written a First Impressions post of it. By the time I do, it’ll be more of a review, because I’ll be done with the game! Anyway, here’s the level I left off on:

PC

No PC gaming this week!

Misc.

No Misc. gaming this week!

So yeah, not a lot of time for gaming this week at all. I spent a few hours on ZombiU, but other than that, my game time was limited. That sucks!
