Quarantine Update 3.4.20



I’m going to be honest, the highlight of the past week of the quarantine was my discovery/re-discovery of Nintendo games. I have spent 30+ hours playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past on my old Nintendo 3DS. They’re so good!

A Link to the Past was released in Japan in 1991, and I’m out here in 2020 and the gameplay still holds up. It’s still exciting, engaging, and engrossing.[note]I wanted to say captivating, but we have a thing with “e” going, and I’m a sucker for assonance[/note] Like, I’ve always thought top-down RPG games were tedious and boring, and here I am spending hours playing a game that’s older than me!

All of this is to say that all the screenshots and videos of Animal Crossing: New Horizons are making it really difficult for me to not splurge on a Switch right now. In this economy?!

Anyway, so that’s what I’m excited about. That, and the fact that Community is now available on Netflix in Ukraine.

If you have a Nintendo 3DS that you’re willing to dig up to play New Leaf with me, leave your friend code in the comments or DM me on Twitter.

Wash your hands, sit at home, stay healthy!
