So between Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Spelunky HD, both of which I got recently, I feel like I'm not going to find the time for any other games for quite some time. This means that Rayman Legends and Killer is Dead, two games that I've been very excited about, might have to be put on hold for a bit longer. 

I forgot just how addicting Animal Crossing can be. I spent so much time with the Gamecube game, waking up every day to see what Nook was selling at his stores and to talk to all the neighbors. The addictiveness doesn't seem to have worn off with the new installment on the series. Every day I'm wondering what I'll find for sale in the stores, trying to find new things to donate to the museum, earning bells to afford the biggest house possible... Nintendo really knows how to keep people playing this game.

Also, I want to be friends with whoever is in charge of deciding which fish and bugs make it into the Animal Crossing games. I've been catching so many of my favorite creatures in New Leaf. Orchid mantises? Whale sharks? Freaking giant isopods? Excellent choices all around (although the inclusion of house centipedes makes me uncomfortable. I absolutely hate those things... blech!).



As for Spelunky, I'm trying to take things one goal at a time. I managed to unlock all the shortcuts and beat the game (without shortcuts!). My current goal is to finally beat Hell for the first time, and then hopefully finish filling out the journal. I managed to make it to Hell twice so far, but I haven't made it to the final boss yet. Unfortunately, I feel like I'm starting to get more and more reckless, and I've noticed I haven't been making it very far lately. Just gotta be more careful and take things a bit slower.

It's amazing to me how I can just keep playing these games over and over and never get tired of them. Even after having sunk so many hours into the original Animal Crossing and Spelunky, I'm still coming back for more in the newer iterations. They've really got me hooked.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
