What am I Playing?



On my Nintendo Switch I’m playing Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.  This is a fun, relaxing game with beautiful graphics.  It’s been described by some people as being kinda like a cross between Zelda and Stardew Valley, and in my opinion that is a fantastic combo!

On my Xbox 360 I’m playing Smackdown Vs Raw 2009.  I don’t have an Xbox One yet, I plan on getting one, but I only just recently (One year ago) received the 360 as a gift from my brother in-law since he upgraded to the Xbox One.  Prior to that I had never had any consoles by Microsoft, I mainly had Nintendo systems.  I always loved the Smackdown Vs. Raw games, I used to be a huge wrestling fan, it started with a crush on John Cena over 10 years ago haha but I eventually really got into it.  I remember playing one on my PS2 and loving it so much, I really enjoy the character creation thing, I love making really bizarre characters 🙂  It’s very nostalgic for me.  The main reason I got the 2009 version (I’m aware there’s much more recent versions) is because I know all the wrestlers from then, I’m not familiar with any of the newer ones.

Of course, I’m still constantly playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf on my Nintendo 3DS. It’s so relaxing, and I’ve had the game for over 5 years but I’m just this past year getting into it since I’ve discovered all the things you can do.  I’m still paying off my home loan from Tom Nook, it seems like it’s taking forever!  But it’s a lot of fun.  My town is called Mapleton, it has a long way to go. I’m really hoping for news on AC for the Switch tomorrow. Either way I have lots to do in New Leaf for now.

Here is my backlog of games, there’s 17 of them I own that I’m wanting to play within the next year or so.  I have many other games but these are on my priority list.

Sticking With Games

I have a tendency to start playing a game then bounce around between various ones and never get very far in any of them. And I buy more and more and have stacks of them I want to get to, it’s been driving me crazy. I decided I’m going to just focus on two games at time for right now and try to make some progress in them.

I’ll be playing one on my Xbox 360, Harry Potter LEGO Years 5-7, and Animal Crossing New Leaf on my Nintendo 3DS.

Animal Crossing New Leaf

I decided I want to make my Animal Crossing town Japanese themed. I’m not sure yet what I want to do with the houses. I know I want one to be Horror/Halloween themed. I finally found all the fossils for the museum. I’m pretty much just working on paying off the main house loan right now and trying to get requests from villagers so I have more public works projects I can choose from to start making the town look nice. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I got my first golden tool the other day! It was the golden slingshot. The rest of my tools are silver.

Harry Potter LEGO (Years 5-7)

Harry Potter LEGO games are so much fun and so expansive. You can explore all of Hogwarts and there’s tons of stuff to do even aside from the main story. I have years 1-4 and years 5-7 on both my 3DS and Xbox 360. The 3DS ones are pretty cool and I enjoy them but they’re nowhere near the level of the Xbox and PS4 versions.

Anybody else playing any games lately?
