Videogame Journal

I recently bought The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame for my Nintendo Switch.  I love the lego games so I’m looking forward to getting into it.  There’s always so much to do and unlock.  I actually bought it at a Gamestop which was fun, normally I just order my games through Amazon but it was really fun being in a physical store with all the games and merchandise around, really tempting to spend lots of money haha.

I’m counting down until Animal Crossing: New Horizons is released, not too much longer!  Can’t wait!  I love AC games.  They’ve always been so relaxing and beneficial to my mental health.  The graphics look wonderful.  I can definitely see myself putting hundreds plus hours into it like I’ve done with the previous games.

Still playing Stardew Valley.  Joined a group for the game on Facebook and I’m amazed at everyone’s farms.  I haven’t really put any thought into mine, it’s honestly just a big mess.  But I’m getting inspired to make my farm nice.  Finally saved up enough to get the final house upgrade, now I’m just collecting the hardwood required for it. It’s really astounding how much there is to do in SV.   It was definitely a good purchase.

I finished the main game in Pokemon Sword, now I’m just working on filling up my Pokedex and breeding Pokemon to try and get shinies.  I’m looking forward to the expansion pass coming out.

That’s all that’s going on for me right now in terms of games.  I’m planning on saving money for an Xbox one, so hopefully I can get it by the summer.

Eevee Sketch

Was up last night bored so decided to do another quick sketch of Eevee (from Pokemon).  I think my last one was better but I’ve been out of practice with drawing for a month or so with all the stuff going on with moving.

Twinkle Twinkle..

I’m having sooo much fun with my ukulele, learned how to play twinkle twinkle little star today! 🙂  Really excited to have this as a hobby now, I’ve missed playing musical instruments (played the violin for a long time and also guitar for awhile).

Anyway, things are going pretty well.  I’m happy.  My anxiety has been very bad lately but there are reasons for that.  I’m trying not to dwell on stuff I can’t control. Had a very nice Christmas.  Hoping to be able to move soon but it’s a long process.

I’ve been playing Pokemon Sword and it’s amazing, like seriously such an awesome game. Already put 7 hours into it and I’ve only had it a few days.  Still playing Stardew Valley, my character is finally dating one of the NPCs, took a long time to get the hearts up because I wasn’t focused on that the first couple of in-game years.  I’ve gotten to level 90 I think in the mines.  I bought the game Graveyard Keeper the other day for my Switch, it’s really weird but cool so I’m looking forward to getting into that.

What I’ve Been Playing – September 2019

Right now I’m replaying Pokemon Y, this time with EXP Share turned off to make it more of a challenge.  I completely forgot how awesome the X/Y games were!  It makes me excited to have seen the in depth footage from the Nintendo Direct about Pokemon Sword/Shield.  The new game looks amazing and like a lot of work was put into it.  The character customization options looks great too. I really wasn’t a fan of Sun/Moon so I’m ready for a new adventure!

I’m continuing to play Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, 57% completion as of now.  I took some time off from playing games when I wasn’t doing well so I’m not as far as I probably would have been by now.  Still love it and am amazed with all the different areas and crafting abilities.  It’s really an underrated game.

The 3rd game I’m playing is Assassins Creed III.  I had never played any of the Assassins Creed games before and got a couple from my brother in-law when he gave me his old Xbox 360 so I thought I’d give them a try.  I’m really enjoying it so far, it seems like it will be a lot of fun.  The only thing I don’t like is that it takes awhile before you’re able to free roam and explore but other than that I like it very much.

 

Nintendo Switch Lite and Other Game Stuff

So Nintendo announced and showed the Switch Lite, which will be released September 20th, 2019.  I own the main system but will probably get a Lite as well.  They come in 3 different colors, yellow, grey, and turquoise.  There’s also an exclusive Pokemon Sword and Shield version coming out.  These are basically a trimmed down version of the Switch for a cheaper price, $200.  It’s more portable and sleeker so easy to use on the go.  Also, it doesn’t have the ability to be docked or connected/played on the TV.  It’s handheld only, which I think is actually nice.  Of course, having that ability on the main switch is awesome but there are many people who prefer to game solely in handheld mode.  I tend to mainly use mine in handhold.  It’s a great option for people wanting to play on the Switch but can’t afford or don’t want to pay the $300 for the  main system.

I’m still playing Animal Crossing New Leaf and trying to finish paying off my home loan, it’s taking quite awhile.  I legitimately just found out you can stack fruit into baskets and I’ve been playing the game for around 2 years!  How I missed that is beyond me.  I was so happy to find out because I like selling fruit since there’s a lot in my town but it was tedious the way I was doing it before.

Also continuing playing Yonder : The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, at 39% completion so far. It’s so much fun to explore and is a great game, it deserves more recognition.

Going through Pokemon Let’s Go and making sure I beat all the coach trainers, and worming on beating all the master trainers.  So far I’ve just got the title of Pikachu Master. Still need to catch Mewtwo in Cerulean Cave. Oh yeah, I bought the crown accessory for my Pikachu .  $999,999 Pokedollars and completely unnecessary but why not! lol

I’m getting a mouse for my laptop.  I got 2 games for my PC recently (Assassins Creed: Unity and The Sims 4) and know nothing about gaming on a computer, the controls are completely unfamiliar to me.  I think having a mouse will make things quite a bit easier.

There are so many great games coming out within the next year and I’m excited play them and for my collection to grow.

Random Post/Playing with My Camera

 

Have been having fun with my digital camera lately.  I still use my 3DS despite having a Nintendo Switch, it has a wonderful library of games available too so I will keep on playing it.  The one I have is the Galaxy New Nintendo 3DS XL.

The Arkham Horror thing is a living card game one of my friends got me into, I finally have a desk set up so I can play.

The Animal Drawing book I got for $2 at a used bookstore the other day, really can’t beat that!  I love going there, they have such a huge variety of books for awesome prices.  Hopefully it will help guide me in my drawings.

Of course Pikachu is there, huge Pokemon fan, have been since I was a little kid and probably will be till the day I die!
