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…
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.
The best thing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons is that there’s something new to do every day. As well as those new tasks, you can complete some daily checklist tasks. These tasks will help you make the most of my time on your island. Many of these tasks can be completed everyday so it’s pretty easy to create a routine out of these.
You don’t have to do all of these everyday because you’ll find that some of these work well for your island well but others just don’t work for you. That’s why I love Animal Crossing though. Everyone plays for them and you can play at your own pace. It’s just such a calming game.
So, April is over and I thought I would share with you a few things that I got up to.
But what am I currently up to?!
Nothing. I suck at watching things unless it’s YouTubers. If you want to know which small YouTubers I have been watching then check out this post but TV wise, I haven’t watched anything for a long time.
Currently Listening To…
ANONYMOUS by Blackbear. The whole album is absolutely amazing! But my favourite song is MAKE A MESS.
Minecraft of course. I am addicted and if you know me then you definitely know that about me. I can play it for hours without a single break because it’s just so addictive.
I have been watching YouTube tutorials and tours of Minecraft home and worlds and getting my inspiration from there. So many talented Minecrafters out there!
A lot of strawberries and bananas. If you didn’t know, I’m trying to lose some weight.
I was once told that fruit has too much sugar in it and that I shouldn’t eat as much but I’m just going to ignore that as I have been eating fruit and my weight is still going down.
The future of my blog and my YouTube channel. I want to start giving them my full attention and really having a go at making them successful.
I am nearly at 500 subscribers on YouTube and will be doing a giveaway when I finally get there. Let me know what you wish to see in my giveaway..
I love, love, love Animal Crossing! If you’re anything like me then you’ll love it too.
I thought it would be fun to list a few features that a lot of us are hoping for from the the 2019 game.
Just a few months back, Nintendo announced that they were be releasing Animal Crossing in 2019. There’s not much information out about it so far but here’s what we all hope is added to the game.
Relationships Between The Characters
I want to see more relationships between the villagers. Things like dating, friends, enemies, etc. It’d be awesome to be invited to your villagers weddings.
A Bigger Town
The gamecube version of Animal Crossing had the largest size world. New Leaf is only 1/3 of the size of the largest world. That is why we want more space. We could have a whole load of new space for new plants, projects and ponds. They could even increase the villager limit.
More Side Quests
You would never find yourself with nothing to do. Every time you speak to a villager, you could be asked to do a task or quest from villagers. That was you will be able to play the game for longer without running out of things to do.
