Soo… I fell down another, new, gaming hole.

I have wanted a Switch for many many years and at the beginning of the month, I finally treated myself to one in Curry’s early Black Friday sales. Combined with some Currys vouchers from both work and from being part of the Nielsen shopping panel, I got myself a Switch OLED bundle with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8, and I also bought myself Spyro Trilogy Reignited, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 & Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection – although I really didn’t get on with the Jedi Knight games and have returned them… and as soon as the refund hits in the next couple of days I’m getting myself Pokemon: Lets Go Eeve.

Although I’m pleased to announce I’m still as terrible at Spyro and Tony Hawk as I ever was on the Playstation LMAO
I always joke that I’ve been sucking at video games for like 35 years and it’s true. I’ve never been any good at them, going back to Ye Olde Amstrad CPC but my love for and enjoyment of them vastly exceeds my skill. It’s a good thing you don’t need to be good at games to enjoy playing them – with the exception of racing games which I’ve always been fucking awesome at!

Then, from the Nintendo online store, I got Stardew Valley (naturally – but surprisingly haven’t actually touched it yet! I know, I’m as shocked as you are!) and the Blizzard Arcade Collection so that I could play Rock & Roll Racing which was one of my favourite SNES games as a pre-teen llama!

I also signed up for the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion thing. And have been thoroughly enjoying playing SNES Mario Kart and Super Mario World games. It’s been wonderful.

However, most of my time, as I expected, has been taken up by Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is wonderful and I am in love. I have many many issues with Tom Nook – the fucking crook. I signed up for a deserted island, and found that 2 people were moving there with me, along with Timmy, Tommy and Nook himself. Then Blathers – admittedly, he’s wonderful – and his museum moved in. I’ve got my house and done the first two upgrades, currently working on paying off getting a second room. And somehow… somehow I’ve been conned into building a shop for Timmy & Tommy and now… Now I’m building THREE HOMES for more people to move to the island?! I didn’t get a fucking furnished house. I got a tent.

I absolutely fucking love this game! 😀
