Dragon Quest VII is too long, but that's OK

    I really want to love Dragon Quest VII, but I don’t have the time right now to do it justice and it upsets me. I’ve finished Dragon Quest IV & V for the 3DS and I jumped head first into this one when it came out in September because it seemed right up my alley. {:class=“img-fluid”} Going back to it, I can see this is a quintessential JRPG from an age when longer meant better.

    Fantasy Life Item Duplication

    There is a simple way to duplicate any item that is stackable by using the streetpass functionality built into Fantasy Life for Nintendo 3DS. {:class=“img-fluid”} Fantasy Life’s Streetpass revolves around choosing an item you wish to give to passers-by.

    Finished - Legend of Zelda - Four Swords Anniversary Edition for Nintendo 3DS

    I finally finished The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition for Nintendo 3DS this week.

But this time was different! We set up an event purely for the purposes of completing Four Swords, and we accomplished our goal.

    Completing the backlog Fun! Fun! Minigolf! Touch!

    This week I completed (unlocked everything I could) Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! for the 3DS. I bought it back in 2012 from the eShop because mini golf is awesome. And then I hardly played it. Maybe it’s because games with ‘Fun! Fun!’ in the title usually aren’t actually that fun? Maybe, I thought that this game was alright. Some courses were ridiculously easy, whilst others were randomly very hard. The normal mode was a blast once I got back into it, trickshot mode on the other hand wasn’t brilliant.

    Animal Crossing New Leaf - One Week Later

    This has been a good week. The game I originally bought my 3DS for back in 2011 was released! Animal Crossing: New Leaf is awesome. There aren’t many other ways to describe it. In fact, in the days since release it’s now my 2nd most played game on my 3DS (Second only to AC:WW). I’ve played for 28 hours and 13 minutes at the time of writing this piece. That’s an average of four hours a day; considering I’ve been working 8 or 9 hours most days this week apparently I haven’t been sleeping much…
