New Pokemon Snap is a relaxing and fun game for any Pokemon fan. In the game, players are tasked with helping Professor Mirror explore the islands of the Lental region. With your research camera at the ready, you become a Pokemon researcher who explores islands and takes photos of Pokemon in order to learn more about them and the way they live.
You are given unlimited access to the NEO-ONE which is a high tech vehicle that allows you to teleport and survive in all kinds of environments. You do not control the NEO-ONE as New Pokemon Snap is an on-rails game but believe me, you won’t feel restricted in this game at all.
I was never able to play the original Pokemon Snap when it was released back in 1999, so I didn’t feel the nostalgia that many others did when New Pokemon Snap was announced. That definitely doesn’t mean that I wasn’t excited though.
If you have read any post on this blog before, then you probably know that I absolutely love Animal Crossing. You probably also know that I love plushies. Add those two things together and you’ve just made my dreams come true.
So of course, when Build-A-Bear announced that they had an Animal Crossing colab coming, I couldn’t contain my excitement.
I thought it would be a pretty fun idea to talk about what I predict we will get from the range and what my hopes are.
People online keep talking about comfort characters and I honestly love it. Finding a character who brings you happiness in that way is just so lovely. I was trying to work out who my comfort character was but I couldn’t just choose one.
So, I decided to try making an A-Z list of all my favourite characters. I feel like this might be easier than choosing just one comfort character.
So, here are my favourite characters from tv shows, films and games.
October turned out to be a month of gaming for me. It wasn’t because I bought loads of new games or because there was a new release, it was simply because I didn’t have anything else to do and found myself playing on my Switch a lot. I’m not mad though.
Since March, I had only really been playing Animal Crossing. I was addicted and it’s what I spent most of my time doing. However, the Animal Crossing burnout has hit and I’m hardly even playing the game now.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love Animal Crossing. But I had to start playing something else. And I definitely did just that.
This month I played quite a few different games so I thought I would write a monthly roundup style post to talk about the games that I’ve played.
The online Animal Crossing communities can be so much fun. I absolutely love seeing what people have been working on for their island and seeing people having so much fun playing the game.
I know that sometimes the Animal Crossing Twitter community can be a little harsh but overall, it’s such a wonderful place. I do love to have a scroll though the #ACNH hashtag often though.
I found myself struggling a little when it came to thinking of area ideas to fill my island which is why I found myself scrolling through ideas online. I found some lovely area ideas so I thought that I would compile a list here on my blog so you all have some new ideas too.
So, if you’re looking for area inspiration for your island then look no further…
When 2020 started, I felt like it was a fresh start with a whole bunch of new possibilities. Little did I know, 2020 had a different idea for all of us. This year just really hasn’t been too kind. However, I have decided to look back over the whole 2020/lockdown experience in a more positive way to see what good things have happened so far this year.
So yeah, let’s throw on our positive pants and think about what we are grateful for…
I’m pretty sure that you all know that I love Animal Crossing by now. It’s taking over my life and I’m not sorry at all. I’ve played for over 280 hours so far and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
I finally got a 5 star island just the other day so I’m still super excited about that too.
Animal Crossing is taking over my life. Everything I do revolves around the game these days. Even when I see a bug in real life, my brain instantly tries to work out how many bells that bug is worth. If only I carried a net with me in real life too.
I have now nearly clocked 200 hours of Animal Crossing: New Horizons gameplay and I don’t intend on stopping anytime soon.
My wonderful friend, Estelle has created an Animal Crossing themed tag and I was so happy to be tagged.
