Weekly Game Chat: Happy Pi Day! Tomadachi Life Updates and Mario Kart 8

I didn’t get all of the notes down again this week, but I did mark it down better. So there’s that. I really hope you have been enjoying these. This week was a lot. I had some children born. I’ve had some children grow up and move into their own apartment or travel. There are some children that weren’t placed into the notes. Not on purpose. There’s a couple of things that really stood out to me. I’m not going to say which. I’m going to let you read them all and see which ones I mean and comment on it with your personal thoughts!

  1. Samuel was born to Avril and Spencer.
  2. Harry and Ginny got divorced
  3. Matthew was born to George and Amy
  4. Mackenzie was born to Stark and Monica
  5. Jace grew up and became a permanent member of the island.
  6. Henry grew up and became a traveler.
  7. Anna grew up and became a permanent member of the island.
  8. Kylie grew up and became a traveler.
  9. Ariana was born to Abby and Raj.
  10. Malcom and Emma broke up
  11. Jacob was born to JJ and Sam
  12. Sophia and Ian broke up
  13. Jace told Sophia he had feelings for her. They are now a couple.
  14. Hermione decided to set Nicholas up with Emma. It worked great.
  15. Ryan grew up and became a permanent member of the island.
  16. Justin grew up and became a traveler.
  17. Tristan and Julia got married.
  18. Emily grew up and became a permanent member of the island.
  19. Molly was born to Alex and Luke
  20. Hannah grew up and became a permanent member of the island.
  21. Harry and Rory got married.
  22. Amy felt that Fez needed a sweetheart and set him up with Ginny. They hit it off.

The photos are random from what I’ve had taken overall. I tried to go for as recent as possible. From here forward, it will be for that week. I’ll also try to get photos that have a bit more context. Thank you for reading This! More updates coming next week!!!

For those of you who have been following the Mario Kart expansions, the latest wave just hit. It was released Thursday. I just got around to playing it on Sunday. When I play, I normally hit random and play as my mii avi. When the new waves have hit, I specifically choose each of the new ones until all of them are played. I normally play with Dustyn online in friends. Sometimes I also play with my brother and my mom. When they are able to play of course. I really have loved all of the new tracks that have been added so far. I also loved that there was a new character added this time! So far, with all four waves, I’ve only disliked one track. And as I’ve played it over the past few months, I hate it a little less every time. It’s still a pain.

If you have a Switch and want to be buddies, let me know! I’ll happily give my friend code. Same for those with a 3DS.

Hopefully I’ll come with more updates and more games next week!!!

Serenity Island News: March 7th, 2023

My notes are pretty good considering I haven’t been writing notes and I’m trying to get back into it. However, they aren’t fully detailed like I would want them to be. There are also some details missing. It’s all good though. I got some pretty detailed accounts. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Fred and Jackie are thinking of having a baby as of March 1st.
  2. Shaggy thinks Thomas needs a sweetheart. He tried hook him up with Evelyn. It didn’t work, but they became friends.
  3. Nikkie and Sheldon are thinking about having a baby.
  4. Donna and Jonny Depp are thinking about having a baby.
  5. JJ tried to set Shaggy’s son up with Rory. It didn’t work.
  6. Shaggy tried to set up Thomas with Evelyn. It worked.
  7. Fred and Jackie had a baby boy.
  8. Dustyn and Zoey had a baby boy.
  9. Sheldon and Nikkie had a baby girl.
  10. Dimitri and Lorelei had a baby girl.
  11. Donna and Johnny Depp had a baby boy.
  12. Morgan Belikov grew up and became a permanent resident of the island.
  13. Lauren Weasley thought that Malcom needed a sweetheart and set him up with Emma. They hit it off.
  14. J.J and Sam have been close to breaking up three times.
  15. Emma thought that Jonathan needed a sweetheart and set him up with Lauren. They hit it off.
  16. Harry decided to set Ian and Sophia up. They hit it off great.
  17. Eric and Penny had a baby.
  18. Ellie and Jess had a baby.
  19. Scott and Penelope had a baby.
  20. Leonard and Giada had a baby
  21. Jenna and Chandler had a baby girl.

It seems like a lot of people try to set people up with Rory. It never works. I’m beginning to wonder if the right person for Rory just isn’t on my island. Or maybe it’s that they are already married. *Thinks of the one that I had intended for her to be with and who he’s married to on the island.*

Next week I hope to be more detailed. I’m also going to try to import my photos so I can put them in a video and share that as well!

I wish I could create a second island so I can start this whole ordeal for you all. I don’t want to lose the island I have though. Maybe I will figure something out.

Weekly Game Chat: January 7th

I last posted in this about two weeks ago. I haven’t really been gaming gaming. I have gotten some game time in every day. I have played more on Criminal Case. I’ve even started getting all my point chests for Yahtzee with buddies. There’s so much less stress with gaming these days. I do want some more time with my Switch, but that will happen.

We have actually moved to a bigger alliance. It’s not something I really thought we would do. I kept my alt in our previous alliance. She was actually made the Alliance owner. If anything goes sideways, at least I know that we will be able to return to the Alliance. So far it’s working out really well.

New YAHTZEE® With Buddies Android Gameplay - YouTube

I lost a lot of games due to putting this game on the back burner. It was kind of sobering. I take the time every day to get the points needed for the day. I also make it a point to play all the games at least every other day. I’m trying to remain involved in Family shenanigans as well. Maybe I’ll get more rewards doing things this way!

Word Craze Answers Updated November 2021

This game I’m not doing much with at all. I get on and do the daily puzzle and that’s about it. Once in a while, I’ll play the regular puzzles.

Criminal Case: City of Romance #17 - It All Comes to a Head Full Case -  YouTube

I’ve actually been playing all of these versions quite a bit lately. I spent three days going through the rounds. It took like the entire day. I’ll probably scale back to playing on these games a few times a week. I haven’t decided yet. We will see.

That’s all I’ve really played lately. I have bought a few games that were on sale around Christmas. I haven’t really tried them yet. They look really good. Some of them are very nostalgic. I’ll keep a better log of gameplay so I have more to report!

What games are you into lately?

Weekly Game Chat: December 17th

I have finally found a way to carve time to play some games. I’ve even had some time to play some criminal case games! Still need to get better at taking screenshots and notes for the games. I’ll get there. Maybe if people are interested, I’ll start filming my gameplay and sharing clips of them here. I haven’t really touched my Switch lately, but progress is progress!

Guns of Glory Game Guide - Tips, Tricks, and Strategy - Gamer Empire

I haven’t really gotten too far along on this game. I do log on every day. I did recently get to castle 27 on one account and 22 on the other. I also now have the highest armor set on my main. At least the current highest. I am trying hard to make sure I get on every day to do at least the daily tasks.

New YAHTZEE® With Buddies Android Gameplay - YouTube

I messed up badly with this one. I went too many days without playing and lost a ton of my games. I had a lot of games going so it was kind of a blow. Hoping to be able to build them back up in time. I also haven’t really been contributing to the family feast or games much. I’m working on getting better at this.

Word Craze Answers Updated November 2021

I don’t really play this game too much, but I do get on every day to at least get the daily puzzle game done. I’m hoping one day I will have downtime and want to fly through the levels. At least I know I’ve been racking up quite a bit of boosts for when I do!

Criminal Case: City of Romance #17 - It All Comes to a Head Full Case -  YouTube

There are eight versions of this game. I play them all. Rather than talk about them all individually, I’m going to write a bit about them all in one. For months, I’ve only been logging on to do my daily spins. I’ve accumulated quite a bit of boosts and energy. Not that they sync across all devices used, but I digress. I recently downloaded them all to my MacBook. My energy didn’t sync. Rather than being upset, I’m taking advantage of this. When I have the time to do it, I’m doing the daily spins on my MacBook and running the energy out while I’m there. This way I’m making progress on all eight games. Eventually, I’ll use the energy I’ve accumulated on other devices. For now, this works. And I move forward a bit.

I’ve been obsessively living in a loop of keeping up with dailies and making sure I do all daily tasks. I’ve also been trying to make sure I do all daily tasks for Guns of Glory as I possibly can. The more we do as an alliance, the more boxes the alliance gets to open every day. I also bought a new game this week. Well, it was bought for me. I tried it out last night and it’s pretty amazing so far!

Amazon.com: Mario Party Superstars - Nintendo Switch : Nintendo of America:  Electronics

From what I can see, you can choose from a few options on how many turns you want to go. You can play with friends or computers. The computers can be played at any level. the mini-games are games from all Mario Parties. I can’t wait to play it again. I’m excited for my mom to get a copy of the game so we can play together.

Guns Of Glory 3rd Anniversary Event Includes A Glory Ambassador Contest  With A $20,000 Prize

I’m getting to the point where I really hope we have more people join our alliance. I still don’t regret leaving the big alliance we were in. Not that I didn’t enjoy being in that alliance. It was just too much to handle. It was taking my enjoyment from the game. Once we joined our own alliance, my enjoyment of the game picked up. Like I said, it’s nothing against the alliance we were in. We just had differences in preferences in the game.

Amazon.com: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch : Mario Kart 8 - Deluxe:  Video Games

I haven’t really played this much this week. Honestly, I haven’t really played greatly. I’m not sure what the cause is. I don’t want to be one of those types of gamers who blames lag or other players/computers. I want to. I really do. I got hit multiple times where I didn’t even see an object or another car. I flew off corners that I normally did well on. I realize that this all means nothing. Hopefully, when I play again, I’ll do a lot better. I’m sure I just was just off my game.

I haven’t really had a lot of game time lately. I’ve played games, but not fully. I did however get three new games! So there’s that!

New Games:

Games I’ve Played:

Guns of Glory Revenue Shoots Past $215 Million in Its First Year

I’ve gotten on long enough to do dailies most days recently. I’m still making great progress. Especially with my alternate account. She has a full set of armor (save the necklace) that she can’t wear until she’s lord level 26. She’s level 25 now. So there’s progress. Hopefully, I’ll make some time to spend a little more on both accounts and get some of my quests done that aren’t daily quests. We shall see.

Amazon.com: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch : Mario Kart 8 - Deluxe:  Video Games

While I haven’t played this almost nightly like I have been, I did play a few nights for a few rounds. I’ve recently taken to switching out wheels and cars. I’ve given them all ago. I still favor my purple bike and star wheels. I was using a certain glider, but I find that I like the cloud ones better. If anybody has a Switch and plays this, message me so we can add each other.

That’s about it. I’m doing good so far in keeping up with logging in certain games every day. I eventually want to get to where I’m playing them as well. I just got caught up on my Word Craze game yesterday. I hadn’t touched it in about a week. I also got on Yahtzee with Buddies and played a bunch of games before they went to forfeit. I decided to quit playing two accounts on that game. It’s just too much for me.

It’s been a pretty weird week. It’s been busy and not. It’s been nerve wracking and completely amazing. I don’t even know how to explain it. You aren’t here to hear it anyways! So I haven’t really played a lot of games lately. I have played a lot of Mario Kart with my family and some Guns of Glory as well.

Guns of Glory Revenue Shoots Past $215 Million in Its First Year

I’ve been really enjoying the game a lot lately. I’ve gotten a lot of rewards on both of my accounts. I haven’t really been enjoying it too much the last few days. My alternate account has a bug on it. I contacted support and was given a very subpar response. They basically made it seem like it was all my device. The problem is I found out my Mom’s alt account has the same problem! But I digress. Hoping it gets solved soon.

Amazon.com: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch : Mario Kart 8 - Deluxe:  Video Games

Dustyn got my mom a cute wireless controller for her birthday. Her birthday is this Sunday. So naturally we had to try it out. So we played quite a few games over the span of a few days. It’s been really fun. She loved her controller so much that I wound up getting myself one. I haven’t set it up yet. If you’d like pictures, I’ll definitely provide. Just let me know!

Monopoly for Nintendo Switch

I wound up playing one round of monopoly. By myself. I find it fun to run through games like these by yourself. I’m really just not competitive enough to play these games with other people in all honesty. Maybe one day I will get brave and play with computers. We will see!

This has been a very interesting week. I’ve been very fixated on both Yahtzee with Buddies and Guns of Glory. I feel like they have both consumed me outside of work. I have played other games through the week. I just haven’t taken notes like I should. Not that that’s really beginning to be a shock, but I digress.

Guns of Glory Revenue Shoots Past $215 Million in Its First Year

This one is a little weird for me. While I’ve played constantly through the day, I’ve only done it to get daily tasks done. The more daily tasks my alliance achieves, the more daily gift boxes we can send out every day. Right now, we’re able to send four of the six boxes out every day. For a few days, it was like pulling teeth to get to the fourth box though. I’m afraid if I play too much that I will burn myself out.

New YAHTZEE® With Buddies Android Gameplay - YouTube

I’ve been obsessed with completing a sticker set. Every couple of weeks or so, they do a glitter album. You can only get the sticker packs for the stickers by completing the daily points. You get one sticker back my getting the large box of the day. You get that box by earning five thousand points. I’m very happy to say that I completed the set yesterday. It was a very proud moment for me. The dice were Monopoly dice. I will probably chill back a little from playing, but I still plan to get on every day for my games and for family things. This is the first album I’ve completed. It’s an awesome moment!

So I kept notes for part of the week. The rest of the week not so much. Mainly because when I was thinking about it I wasn’t using the device to do the notes on. I’ll use a program that syncs on all my devices from here on. I’m also not going to do screenshots. The notes will be helpful enough.

Amazon.com: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch : Mario Kart 8 - Deluxe:  Video Games

My family and I get on our Switches and play this. It’s been really fun. We recently got my brother a copy for his switch. We wound up playing like twelve races together if I remember correctly. We have decided to do a game day on Sundays. This will be on the list of games to be played.

Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises on Steam

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. I got it on sale months back. It’s a pretty interesting game. It’s kind of like Criminal Case, but more interactive. I actually had to do a few walk throughs here and there. I only played it for about an hour or so, but I do plan to go back to it.

Guns of Glory Revenue Shoots Past $215 Million in Its First Year

I haven’t been as absorbed with this game as I was the previous week. I did get a lot done though. My new castle is now level nineteen and has joined us in the underseas world. It’s really going to help advance our alliance even more. Or so I hope.

New YAHTZEE® With Buddies Android Gameplay - YouTube

Sadly, my family didn’t do great in the Family Feast this week. We wound up ranking somewhere in the 30s. I’d say we need more active family members so we can stay in the top ten, but I’d have to be more active myself to make that kind of demand. There’s a new glitter pack. The grand price dice for collecting all stickers for it is a Monopoly dice. I want it. So I’ve been trying to get the 5k goal every day. That’s the only way to really get it. So far I have four of the seven stickers for it. I think there are eighteen days left. I’m not sure. Maybe I’ll get lucky! We will see!
