Rambling about Nintendo Stuff

1Goals completed: Desktop up and running, through no effort of my own, just decided to work today and not yesterday. Also got the desk clear enough to set my HOTAS up, so there’s that.

I actually don’t have a solid topic today. Funnily enough my children have been playing Animal Crossing New Leaf on the 3DS. Partially because everyone is talking about Animal Crossing and it’s the one we have that works. I’m actually mildly offended. Someone played as me and sold everything. My entire inventory and all my furniture and proceeded to mail all the resulting money to themselves. I’m not sure when this occurred, but I feel robbed.

They are fortunate that I haven’t played recently enough to know what I’ve lost in the process or they might found out just how annoying I can be as mayor. Pitfalls as far as the eye can see! Unfortunately getting screenshots from a 3DS is… an adventure. I’m also not being allowed to play, apparently.

I considered chiming in about Tom Nook since everyone else is talking about the game. A lot of people want to make him out to be some evil capitalist forcing you into indentured servitude, but I’m not sure that’s fair. Maybe I’ll consider doing some reading and writing a post about the economy of the Animal Crossing universe.

I’m still undecided on replacing my Switch and picking up the new game. I’ll probably order one of the Nintendo specialty screwdriver kits first and at least attempt to clean/repair the current one. I’m not optimistic, but it seems the responsible thing to do.

If anyone has or has used a Switch Lite, let me know what you think. That may serve me better in the long-term anyway. Among the many issues I’ve had with the traditional version is that the children often misplace the joycons and those little buggers can be devilishly difficult to locate, even with built-in locating features.

Another 7 months and I might even consider Pokemon Sword and Shield. Gotta wait and make sure they aren’t going to announce Ultra Sword and Ultra Shield. No, I’m not sore about Ultra Sun/Moon or anything. I like the series and the gameplay, but have little tolerance for their business model.

Either way, that’s enough rambling about Nintendo stuff. Y’all take care, and have fun doing whatever it is you’re doing.
