It's about time this game got some more love.
First, I just got say that there may be some spoiler in this blog, so if you haven't got the game or don't want to know what happens in the game then please don't read beyond this point.
I have been playing a lot of older video games from my collection lately and noticed that Nintendo having two systems at any given time, such as when they supported both the GameCube and Game Boy Advance (GBA) or the Wii and DS, did not necessarily mean that either system got fewer games than the other. Nintendo only supports the Nintendo Switch at the moment, but their game releases do not seem to have increased proportionally despite the Switch being advertised as both a portable and home console.
I’ve already poured a lot of hours into Animal Crossing New Horizons already. I’ve been catching fish and bugs, digging up fossils, donating to the museum, talking to villagers, and trying to play the stalk market correctly even though my stalks are tanking right now. While the game has its flaws, it is still very enjoyable and a fun to play game. Players can even come up with their own challenges like trying to collect all the fruit or build a stockpile of wood and iron so when your tools break you can easily make new ones. But there are still things that I would love to see be added to the game. With updates happening to the game quite regularly, there is plenty that can and might still be added to the game.
I got into Pokemon back in its early days—yep, I am OT. An original trainer. The first game I played was Pokemon Red, but it often frustrated me that you could not obtain all the Pokemon in-game. Specifically, I wanted to obtain all the starters without having to go through the hassle of using a trade cable with a friend.
About five years ago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of Animal Crossing, on a young man's Nintendo 3DS, in the form of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Countless hours were poured into the game. Many sleepless nights were spent catching rare bugs and selling them to the highest bidder, visiting far-off islands with the intent of chatting up strangers who felt oddly familiar. We were all there for the same reason: to relax and take a break from the ever stressful world around us. Nothing's wrong with a little vacation now and again. Though, months of maturing and moving on in the world have caused myself to close my system, putting the animal residents of my town into a deep hibernation, with spring nowhere in sight.
As we are all in the quarantine and distancing ourselves to flatten the curve of the current pandemic. Brightening the dark times is the release of Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH).
Fans of the long-running pocket monster franchise were given news thats shook the fandom worldwide back in February that the generation 8 games, Pokémon Sword and Shield, would be receiving expansions! This marked a first ever for the mainstream line of games from the franchise with two expansions announced for later this year, "The Isle of Armor" & "The Crown Tundra".
I love Pokémon. I have loved Pokémon ever since I was a kid and the love is growing strong everyday. What I thought was a phase is actually a big part of my life. I mean who didn't want to " Catch 'em all" as a kid? The Pokémon world is always growing and changing from the 150 originals to the 890 total you are bound to find some favorites. There are so many Pokémon that I like but only a handful have made it to the level of being able to be called my favorite. These are the same Pokémon that I will turn to every time. So here are 3 Pokémon that I absolutely love.
At the end of 2019, many different outlets awarded Fire Emblem: Three Houses their game of the year award, and it was rightfully earned. An interesting plot, a major swerve halfway through the game, and some intense battles are just a few of the highlights in the game. When I first fired up the game, I didn’t really know what to expect but the rave reviews that the game had gotten had me interested in it. I had always liked the Fire Emblem series, but I didn’t know that I would get as obsessed with it as I have been with Three Houses.
The best moment of my twenty-two-year-old life was so memorably unmemorable. It is as if I was overwhelmed with a powerful sense of realization and appreciation, before I even knew what those words meant. Now, eighteen years after the fact, I am still rushed without mercy back to the moment with two simple triggers. A single mini game on Mario Party 2, and the song “Angel” by Shaggy. In short, life was good.
Let’s start from the beginning.
