Let’s Talk: ACNH Group Stretching (Buttons Vs Motion)

Good Afternoon! Even though it’s still technically morning, but it’s also close to the afternoon! Hope you’re all having a good start to the week and that you enjoyed your weekend!! Happy Monday, you know I must say, if I’m being honest Mondays kind of leave me with mixed feelings….some days I actual enjoy it and don’t mind it much, but I also have days where I’m feeling like Garfield the cat thinking to myself “Mondays” I think most people feel that way though when it comes to Mondays usually, where it’s either a hit or miss at times!

I personally don’t consider Mondays to be all that bad, it just depends on how the day is going or how it feels, but I say we should show the day that starts our week a bit of love, I mean it kind of has a bit of a charm to it wouldn’t you say!? To each their own I guess, anyway…..you might be able to tell what this post is going to be like and what it’s about, today I want to talk about Animal Crossing, because if I’m being honest, it’s who I am inside and I love talking about it! I don’t know what it is about this game, but it just always brings so much joy into my life, I can go away from it for a while, but it’s always going to be the thing I come back to and you know what!?

I don’t mind it and I hope that it’s okay and if it’s not well then…..that is perfectly alright, I’m still going to share upon it anyway, because I can’t help myself, it’s what I love and I’m not ashamed to admit that!! Okay now that I’ve got that all out of my system…kind of….let’s discuss the group stretching that Nintendo brought back to us after sooo many years, for those that never played this game or aren’t familiar with the Animal Crossing series, back when the game first released and when I say game, I’m talking about the very first Animal Crossing off the GameCube (What a gem that console was…..that might just be my opinion though)

We were given a lot of cool features, one of them allowed you to get up early and join in on a nice workout session with some of the villagers in town, which was called morning aerobics, literally you had to get up early in order to catch this one, but if you happened to miss it, well then you’d just be watching the villagers work out, if you made it on time, I personally never tried this, I didn’t know at the time that they even had these cool things you can actually join in on, it was after I hadn’t played it in years that I learned about it, I always wanted to experience it though, but then again I didn’t really understand the concept of Animal Crossing back then either…..it wasn’t until New Leaf that I really fell in love with game and started to understand fully what it was actually about!!

So even though I didn’t quite get the game all those years ago even after trying them out and being frustrated and confused on what I was meant to do….it was always this thing I found myself becoming drawn to not really knowing why exactly I was so drawn to it…..but it always left me feeling happy and excited whenever I heard about it, eventually I got the game and the rest is history!!

Back to the group stretching part of this blog…as already stated, Nintendo gave us back something that a lot of people enjoyed from the older games, although it’s called something different, it’s still the same concept to the original! I’ve done the group stretching in New Horizons about 3-4 times now I’d say, the first 3 was just using the buttons which was quite hard, believe it or not, I say that because you have to time it properly otherwise it’s going to look a bit funny, the best way to explain it is….it’s kind of like a rhythm game, It’s the got the same mechanics as if you’re playing Bust a Groove, only you’re there for about 5-10mins max!!

Live From My Main Island….Group Stretching Button Option

If you even slip up once, just prepare to be lost, while everyone else is in sync and you’re there looking like an Octopus with no control of it’s arms…..okay that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s pretty much like that as well lol! If you’re someone that likes everything in a fashionably order and you love to see everything synched up nicely…..just know you’re going to feel slightly triggered when it’s not like that, mind you I’m just talking about the buttons….I haven’t even gotten to the whole motion side of it yet…speaking of that…..I tried that for the very first time today, group stretching with the motion option using the controllers (you only need one controller by the way) that was….an experience…..but it was a fun experience, I enjoyed it….although I wasn’t quite on beat with everyone, but then again….I’m not really that coordinated with a lot of things, hence why I never played sports back when I was in school….

Fun fact:

Had I played a sport….it would’ve been Football (Soccer) or badminton (fun fact on me just learning that this is an actual sport and not just something that was played for fun) would I had played it as a sport if there was a team….maybe, but also no, I think I prefer to play it just for fun to be fair, but football (Soccer) I would have definitely considered trying out had I played a sport

Me Again…..Group Stretching With The Motion Option (better option in my opinion)

Back to Animal Crossing, regardless to my coordination for certain things, that doesn’t mean I won’t still try my best, now if you were to ask me….which do you prefer buttons or motion!? I would pick motions, for the simple fact that, it’s fun….yes the buttons are fine, but it’s called group stretching which means you need to move, yes I’m not always timed perfectly with everyone….but even when I’m not, I still have a good time doing it, plus I feel the motion option to be a better way to really feel like you’re really participating as well as really bonding with some of your villagers and the NPC’s that join it, most importantly, by choosing the motion option, you’re giving your body the exercise that it needs which means you’re caring for yourself, yes it’s a quick and light workout, but if it’s something you can have fun with, why wouldn’t you want to join in on the fun!?

You have to admit that, it’s pretty flipping cute seeing the villagers and everyone having a good time group stretching, by the way sometimes the villagers and NPC’s go off a beat as well so if you look a fool you won’t be a fool alone which is great!! That’s my thoughts on the Animal Crossing Group Stretching mini game whatever you want to call it!!

What are your thoughts, have you played the group stretching mini game!? If so do you prefer using the button option or the motion option!?

P.S.

I was going to to add the videos of each group stretching, but I’m unable to share the video as I don’t have the proper plan for it, so instead I hope you don’t mind the still photos of it! No need to fret though (not that you are) as I’m sharing it on my twitter so, if you want to see both examples with the actual video (button option VS motion option, you can find it here: Daydreamer Lex (that’s the twitter I use for these posts and the only social media I have at the current moment)

Happy National Relaxation Day….

So apparently it’s National Relaxation Day…..I didn’t know that until I went onto Twitter to see Nintendo themselves posting about it with an Animal Crossing post earlier…..you’d think that it’d be easy to relax especially during the weekend, I mean that’s normally when people relax, chill and enjoy themselves, but sometimes relaxation feels like a whole task to master…..there’s moments where I can get into a relaxed state and then quickly I find myself becoming a little uneasy, it sounds a little weird, but I don’t really know how to relax if I’m being honest!

This has got to be one of my most un relaxed weekends that I have had in a very long time…it’s probably my most sleepless weekend too, I’ve just been full of a lot of thoughts lately and I’ve been trying to put them all to the side and not think so much, but it’s not really been easy, I’m not trying to complain by the way….that’s just how I’ve been feeling

All that said, my weekend hasn’t been a bad weekend, it’s just not been my favorite in terms of not being able to relax or sleep properly, other than that it’s okay…..I wish that I had more to say in this post, but I honestly cannot think at all so I’m just going to keep this one short…..I think I’m going to take a couple of days off from writing for a bit, I don’t know, I may not at the same time, although I feel I maybe should just to until I feel better, in terms of energy,

I feel I’ve been going on low energy for a bit now so depending how I feel will determine if I write often, It might not be for as long as I think so if I don’t write tomorrow, I may write Tues and if not Tuesday then Wednesday there is something I have in mind that I want to record for a podcast this week so whatever day that is, I’ll also do a post, I’ll try not to stay away too long, but if I feel that I’m not in the best headspace then I’ll have to allow myself to take the time that is needed before I come back here even though I’ll probably fight with myself on it, we’ll see what happens!

I hope you guys have a good rest of the night and that you’re enjoying your relaxation and that you’re all okay, see you soon!

Here’s my latest podcast episode if you guys want to check it out: *quick update…..I missed spelled the name of the artist, I fixed it, but some of it is still there…sorry lol*

Now Playing….Trampoline By Shaed (Feat Zayn) Ep. 33 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope that you're all well, in today's episode I thought we'd change up the energy and talk about some music, I'll be discussing the song Trampoline by Shaed featuring Zayn and sharing my thoughts on it, as well as the original version, this song has been in my head for a while and I just felt like talking about it!

June 31st….Oh Wait No It’s July….

This is just a joke guys, I know there isn’t a 31st in June…..a little shocking that we’re in July already…..I think everyone is surprised, it don’t feel anything like July yet, it’s a bit weird, hopefully the start of the month has treated you all well so far, even though we literally just started, the one thing I can say is that we’ve entered the month of my blog anniversary, it’s not yet….but it is coming soon and I have no idea what I should do for it…..I’ve been trying to come up something different to do, we’ll be going on 3 years here on the 11th of this month, 2 more weeks….actually a week from this Sunday coming up, so not this Sunday the following one, just making sure I’m making sense here!

Now I know that I’m not really looking to do anything too grand for my 3 years of blogging, I’m not really a showy kind of person, but I do want to do something special, now I’ve been thinking about this….had I not already brought in a podcast 4 months early that could of been a cool thing to bring in, but it’s here now, which is good, I’m happy that I decided to give it a go when I did! By the way it’s actually 3 months not 4, I introduced the Podcast here on the 3rd of April, but my first episode was uploaded the 19th of March, although on Spotify it will say the 20th, same as when Animal Crossing New Horizons was released (don’t ask) yeah I know, not sure why I did it like that, I think I just wanted to test it out before anything, at least that’s what I’m thinking!

But yeah, Podcast is already a thing soooo, I have to add something else, I did have some things in mind…..one of them I’m going to do when the anniversary arrives, it’s just a post that I’m going to do talking about what it’s been like blogging for 3 years….nothing too special there, but besides that I’m still trying to figure out what would be good to bring here….I could always poll it and have you guys be apart of it, which I wouldn’t mind, I’d love to include you guys, only if you want that is! I could add some choices I have in mind that you could choose from ooor if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see/read mainly, if anything comes to mind, I could also go based on topics that I did before that you want me to do more of, for example Now Playing….you can choose an artist or song that you want me to listen to and I will give my thoughts on that artist/song the best way I can, stuff like that, just to shake things up, but of course, it’s your choice if you want to do that!!

I don’t know, I just want to do something different this time around and I would love for you guys to be apart of it with me, it’s been quite the journey, even though somedays it doesn’t feel like it, I can’t believe we’re close to 3 years on here though, SUPER close too….I know we’ve got some time left to decide, but I just thought I’d write about where my mind has been these past few days on the very first day of July! Have I mentioned how it doesn’t quite feel like July yet!?

Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well on this fine evening, you have a good rest of the day, stay cool and hydrated, as well as safe!

All The Love ❤ ❤

My Thoughts On Stardew Valley So Far….

Good Morning Everyone! (It’s the morning in the time of me writing this) hope you you’re all having a nice Tuesday, for today’s post I wanted to talk about a game that I’ve been playing for a bit of a while now, by the title you can probably take a really big guess on what that game is, if you said Stardew Valley, you’re right, okay so just want to make it clear that, I’ve not played this game that long so it’s not going to be a full on review, the only time I’d give my honest thoughts fully with games is when it’s a favorite of mine and I know I’ve been enjoying it to the point where I speak upon it a lot, for example Animal Crossing, I’ve played that game since Gamecube, even though I didn’t start really getting into it, until New Leaf…..but this post isn’t about Animal Crossing, It’s about Stardew Valley!

Now I will give you guys a bit of a heads up, whenever it comes to new games that I’m not really familiar with, I don’t really know how to talk about them, so I’m just going to give my best honest thoughts on this game and hope that I don’t offend anyone who really enjoy this game, with not having much knowledge on these type of games, at the same time this is my post and if you don’t like what I write about it…..feel free to find a post that you do enjoy, however I don’t really plan on saying anything bad about it, because I’ve still yet to really get to know the game, I was just stating that part on more of a not knowing much about it….. onto the thoughts though!!

Alright so since starting the game, which I actually started playing a day after the anniversary of both my blog and my Animal Crossing journey on a new Island on my main Island (April 11th) started the game (April 12th) Yeah I know crazy, you know what else is crazy!? Today marks 1 week since I’ve touched the game, like I haven’t played in a week, probably not that crazy I know, but still it’s kinda weird how it all intertwined, don’t mind me I tend to make something small into something big, that’s just me!

That note aside, even though I had the game on my console for a bit of a while, I didn’t start playing it until recently, I think I had it downloaded on my console for like a month or something, I can’t really remember, but starting the game, I found it to be interesting when I first started it up, it’s got a old fashion pixel style going on and normally I don’t really play those type of games, it was the same when I played A Short Hike it was something completely new to me that I had never tried, but I grew to enjoy it! By watching a lot of different gamers, I heard a lot about Stardew Valley and it always interest me, when I would hear about it, but I never gave it too much attention, the first time I purchased a Stardew Valley game was when I bought the game for a friend of mine, me being the curious little pup that I am,

I wanted to see what it was about and so when I played it for the first time, I’m not going to lie…..I played it for a couple hours and then after that first time, I just would look forward to playing it, it’s a very cute and relaxing game and it’s pretty similar to Animal Crossing which is my all time favorite game, I love that game with all my heart! Again not an Animal Crossing post….got to remember that!! Stardew Valley that’s our focus…..playing the game, I actually grew to enjoy it, that being said…..there are some pretty big differences to Stardew Valley compared to Animal Crossing that I had to get used to…..for starters the inventory….I’ve been trying to upgrade my inventory to have more spots to put things in since I started….. and I still yet to get it!

Selling things is a lot different also, even with the things I put up to be sold, I also feel I never get the amount I need so I’m able to get that new shiny beautiful backpack in that store I can’t remember the name of, it just seems to be like a whole mission and a half just to get it, like I don’t understand…..also I’m NOT good a farming and that’s LITERALLY the whole concept of the game!! You get passed down your grandfathers farm to maintain and take VERY good care of and I can’t even do that right, it’s like why’d you give me the farm grandpa!? I just always feel bad, because while I’m supposed to be having the farm looking like it’s 30 and THRIVING, I’m just doing an awful job at it,

I’m just ignoring the farm while my dog in game just barks all the time, I give it love and water don’t worry!! Before you even say anything, you can’t feed the dog in Stardew Valley I looked it up, I didn’t want to be a bad owner, it has a whole dog bowl behind the farm and the only thing you can give it is water…..WATER!! You want to know the best part though!? It doesn’t even drink the water, the water just disappears the next day, like what!? I don’t get it, I almost felt bad and then realized I didn’t need to feel bad about it after all!

You know I just realized that I have a lot more thoughts on this game then I anticipated, I was sitting here talking about a certain dance event in Stardew Valley that takes place in Spring to myself and then I thought, I’m going to turn this into a podcast episode and I did, just finished actually! That episode highlights what’s already on here and adds to that as well so when I look it over and post it, I will add it to this post and you can take a listen if you want, I wanted them to have different personalities which they will in a way, I think you’ll see a difference to this post and that episode! I know that if I wrote it all here this would be too long so, I hope that you enjoy both contents, but so far those are my thoughts on Stardew Valley, it’s a pretty good game that I’m still getting used to and trying to understand, but so far I like it!!

P.S.

I just looked at some of the Stardew Valley farms as I was looking for some Stardew Valley pictures and my Animal Crossing Island is better then my Stardew Valley farm…..I have got to figure this game out lol!!

Update

My latest podcast episode is up for listening if you guys want to check it out: Stardew Valley Thoughts (So Far) you can also find it on Spotify by searching Daydreamer’s Podcast

Happy Birthday Planet Earth!!

I’m not really sure how old you are, but all that matters is that you’re doing well and are still going strong, for everyone else Happy Earth Day!! I hope for those reading this right now that you’re doing well yourselves and are having a nice Thursday! Now for the topic….is there a topic!? Nope, not a specific one anyway, so this post is going to be pretty much whatever comes to mind, call it a surprise post if you will, might make it more interesting if you do if I’m being honest lol!!

Let’s turn it into a game, what kind of stuff can we add to this post to make it feel interesting!? Hmmm….well here’s what we know, we’re in the process of the Spring season, which is also allergy season and let me tell you, I’ve got a bit of allergies happening, but it’s going away, I’ve gotten pass the sneezing stage, where I was having a sneezing attack every few minutes these past couple of days, it’s clearing up little by little though! I know it probably hasn’t gotten interesting yet, but I’m sure I’ll get there….since it’s Earth Day, let’s talk about some Earth Day things in way, like did you know that Venus is Earth’s twin!?

Okay you probably knew that one, but did you know that when Earth had formed, it was all because an unknown planet or space rock had crashed into both Earth and Venus, but Earth had protection and it’s own armor which was it’s magnetic field, to keep it from having the massive impact that Venus took, it’s probably confusing I know, but you see at one point in space and time, you couldn’t really tell Venus and Earth apart, they literally looked the same! It took a collision to happen from another planet to have Earth be the Earth that we know and that a good amount of us out there love! With Venus on the other hand, well…..it’s full of fire, it’s literally called the hellish planet, now the debate is what’s hotter, the Sun or Venus!? Might be a stupid question, but that’s okay, because I’m the type to ask those types of stupid question and I’m alright with that!!

Seriously though I’d like to have a side by side on Venus’s heat level and the Sun’s heat level, yes the Sun might definitely win, but I like to think Venus can give it some serious competition alright, that’s just some stuff to know!

On a whole different random side note, when I played Animal Crossing: New Horizon earlier today, I expected to play the Nature Event in honor of Earth Day, in case some of you don’t know in Animal Crossing: New Horizons they have special events for certain holidays and they have a small little event for Earth Day, but anyway when I played the game earlier I was kinda looking forward to playing the event, but when I arrived at the town hall plaza, there was no Leif, no other Special Characters either…..well besides Flick the bug enthusiast, but yeah no it was just empty which was a little confusing to me, I then searched up when the Nature Day event was and I learned that Nature Day started on the 15th of this month and ended the 22nd which happens to be today! I thought that today would be the last day to do the event, whatever the event was this year, but apparently not, I personally think they should’ve kept it for the day of Earth Day as well because it would’ve worked well for one, but it is what it is!

I found out anyway that they removed some stuff from the event, which was cool (not that it was removed, just that I liked the things that they had with the event, just to be clear) wasn’t like a big thing, it was just a special bonus involving the nook miles, don’t know why they did that to be fair, but *shrugs shoulders and puts hands up* maybe I didn’t missed much after all who knows! Well that’s all of the thoughts that I have for this post, I just thought I’d share a couple things that came to mind, I know it was a bit random and I tried to keep it in the theme of today, so hopefully this was a somewhat interesting post to those reading this right now, I hope you all have a goodnight and Happy Earth Day or just Thursday!!

Animal Crossing Wishlist

You know what I love!? Animal Crossing and yes i’m aware i’ve talked about this game a few times already, but I just can’t help it, it really is a good game, i’ve been playing the game since the gamecube…..okay yes and no, I did play the gamecube version, but at that time, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was meant to be doing in it, so I didn’t play it that much, it wasn’t until I got New Leaf to where I understood the whole concept of the game!!

I never played Wild World at least I don’t remember ever playing it……I did play City Folk though, I never had it personally, but my cousin did, I asked to borrow it a long time ago, pretty sure he’s forgotten and so I went and kept it, still have it too, he doesn’t mind, I don’t think he played it much anyway…..to be fair, I think I only played it a few times when I borrowed it, haven’t played it since though, but I did play it!!

Now we have New Horizons and I just love it!! I even went and created a second Island, I did the same thing when I was always playing New Leaf, I bought another copy so I could start from the beginning without deleting my other town……I then later traded that town in thinking I wasn’t going to miss it……in a way I do miss, but only because I would’ve liked to have seen my very first town after not playing it for a while, buuut you know it’s fine.

That aside though Animal Crossing is pretty much my life, not an exaggeration, what I mean by that is I really do love this game, but moving on, I wanted to create some kind of Wishlist, with the release of New Horizons we were introduced to the new add ons, by that I mean Nintendo had the thought of changing things up not just with the new Island setting,

but having it be based around updates, so instead of having all the holidays within the Animal Crossing world just automatically being there like in the previous games, they’ve now been coming in as updates to keep things fresh and new and so that people don’t go spoiling all the big events for other people that have yet to be seen, but with the new updates addition

That’s been brought to New Horizons, you’ve got people making Wishlists on what they’d like to see added to the game or what they feel needs to be improved on, which is pretty cool, I mean there are still a lot of things that have yet to be introduced with the game so to be able to give suggestions on what could be added because of that, is probably one of the best features that Nintendo ever introduced us to now even with the ideas that we may give, obviously they won’t go adding all of them, but there is a possibility that some of the ideas that we may have for the game could be a future add in if not at least a consideration of some sort and with that possibility,

You know that we’re bound to get our creative juices flowing!! Now with my Wishlist, I might not actually have a lot that i’d want added either because I still have yet to think of what I would like to see be brought to New Horizons or mainly due to what everyone else already suggested, but i’m gonna try and think here, see if I can come up with 5 things and if not then at least 3…..

Number 1:

Someone Edited New Horizons to the New Leaf Promotion poster with Brewster on it….

I’ll admit this one being already suggested, however everyone seems to agree on it, so technically it’s nothing new, but i’d really like for Nintendo to bring back the Cafe (a.k.a) the Roost, so we can see Brewster, it been a thing in all of the games so it should be a thing in New Horizons, now with that, there is a chance that we will get this added eventually,

now I don’t really like spoilers so if you know the details on when, please don’t tell me because I want to be surprised whenever it ends up being announced by Nintendo….that being stated, it’d be nice to have a cafe in the game again, I liked visiting the roost and hearing the theme song and also getting to hang out with Brewster, if they don’t end up bringing him back for some reason, although I don’t see why they wouldn’t!?

but if they don’t, it’d be cool to see who they do add to the cafe when it is brought back…..eventually, I just want a cafe just like everyone else, this one highly requested, but we’ll just have to wait and see on it!!

Number 2:

I had to think on this one a bit, but there was one thing that kept popping up and that was Label, if you don’t know Label she is the third sister to the Able Sisters Sable and Mable, she used to be called Labelle and worked with Gracie in the old days, but now she’s on her own Fashion journey, but it’d be nice if she was given her own shop and if not that, then have her working with her sister again, better yet, just upgrade the able Sisters shop all together, that’s something we’ve never had in the other games so why not add that towards the list I mean Nooks Cranny got an upgrade so why shouldn’t the Able Sisters get one as well!? JUST SAYING!!

Number 3: KAPP’N WE NEED KAPP’N THAT IS ALL!!

No i’m kidding, well yes, but also that’s not it, I can’t seem to think of anything else i’d like to see added, so with the next 2-3 add in’s we’ll go more on what i’d like for Nintendo to improve on, one of them being able to do the crafting and such in a grouping kind of way what I mean is Clams and Nook Miles, for example with the clams if there’s 10 of them that should be considered a whole bad of bait instead of it being 1 bait, 2, bait, 3 bait, 4…..you get it!!

It already takes a while to dig up the clams, it shouldn’t take another long while to craft them when those 10 clams could literally be put into one round-up of bait…..I really hope Nintendo takes this one into consideration and improve on it cause people aren’t going to look for clams that’s been added specifically with this game if they’re just going to be crafted one by one, if you want to make it easy just do what you did with the fences when crafting them and add that feature to the clams as well!!

As for Nook Miles, being able to have the option to choose how many Nook Mile Tickets we want to redeem would be nice, with this suggestion I always think about Pokemon and when you’re gathering Potions and restocking on the Poke’ball and how you’re able to choose how many you’d like, I really appreciate Pokemon for this because not only does it save time, but it also keeps it simple and you gotta love that!! I hope Animal Crossing takes a page out of Pokemon’s book because this feature is better!! sorry…..

Number 4:

We’re going to try and get to five here…..here’s another idea that I just thought about, more villager interaction, for example having them come over like they used to or having more games you can play with them besides treasure hunt every once in a while stuff like that, I mean we’re already living on the same Island why not have these kind of features,

I know people talk about wanting more dialog and them having more personality and that, which yes I agree on, but it’d be nice to really hang out with your villagers at times, maybe even have it to where they randomly ask something of their favorite thing, see how much you know them, it’s just an idea…..

Last idea attempt…..Number 5:

I don’t know how great of idea this one is, but it’s in my head so i’ll share it…..maybe and this is a big maybe…..have some special NPC’s make a cameo, an appearance of some sort, so what they did with Reese and Cyrus, maybe have Phineas make a surprise appearance or have Dr. Shrunk appear again, I think having some of the favorite NPC’s that people enjoyed seeing would be nice, even if it’s just for the moment,

Maybe we won’t see them a lot, but it’d be nice if we could have them show up on the Island for a visit and maybe they would have some kind of rare treasures that you can’t really get playing the game everyday or most days, Even if you created another May Day kind of Maze thing and add some of them there like you did with Rover, have that be like a special event that we get here and there, that too would be great, I mean with that we’d always be excited for something and plus I think it’d be nice if we could get a visit from some of the other special characters.

That’s my wishlist for now, I honestly don’t have anything else to add, at least in this one, I might go and make another one when other ideas strike of course, but that’s all for now, let me know what you’d like to see as future updates if you too play Animal Crossing: New Horizons and with that i’ll see you all in the next post!! ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Favorite K.K. Slider Songs (Part 2)

So as you all may know, i’m a pretty big fan of the Animal Crossing series, it’s one of my favorite games EVER!! I pretty much play it more than any of my other games to be fair and i’ve got a few i’ve still yet to start…..but today we aren’t talking about the game itself, but the music of the series, well more like K.K. Slider songs, because who doesn’t love K.K. Slider!?

Now some of you might remember, but if you don’t I actually wrote a first part to this three months ago which I just looked at and it turns out that uhhh….that was yesterday so the fact that i’m writing the second part to this today is a little crazy, the timing is a little late, but only by a day……but if you want to read the first list of my favorite K.K. Slider songs you can find that here: 3 K.K. Slider Songs I Never Get Tired Of (Songs From Animal Crossing)

On to the second part of this list, this list might actually be a little different, because instead of it being songs I never get tired of, it’s going to be K.K. Slider songs that i’ve either grown to like or are also some of my favorites that I didn’t get to talk about before……are you ready for this, I hope so because we’re about to begin starting with……

K.K. Bossa

By the way this list is in no particular order or anything, the reason I started with K.K. Bossa though is because I have this one playing in my characters room so I thought let’s start with that one first!! How can I explain K.K. Bossa…..well I like this one because it’s very relaxing and has such a nice sound to it, there’s just something about it that I can really appreciate and it’s actually become one of my favorites, it’s just a good song!!

Next Up……K.K Stroll

Okay so this one was one of those songs that I didn’t mind, but it wasn’t really a favorite either…..however, I gotta say that K.K. Stroll is a song that has grown on me, it’s funny because last weekend when K.K. Slider was in town (on my Island) I requested this song, but I was hoping to find it through the town hall of my New Horizons Island and after looking for it for a good while, I ended up asking K.K. to sing it and long story short the same day I requested this song…….you’ll never guess what song was in the town hall…..yeah K.K. Stroll…..I was like are you serious of course you’d be in the town hall the day I go requesting you…..

All that aside, this one did end up growing on me, it’s a pretty catchy song and also a pretty good one too, would I say it’s a favorite now!? Not really, but it’s one I can also appreciate for it’s catchiness, plus I just feel it to be one of those tunes that just carries your worries away and I like that!!

Last, but not least……kinda……Drivin’

There’s a reason I said kinda……we’ll get to it in a moment, but first let’s talk this K.K. Slider song…..firstly….it’s a new one that was introduced to New Horizons and I think it’s a lot of people’s favorite, the reason it’s on my list is because I love when my Villagers sing it, I said that, but really I love when my villagers sing in general, it’s just so cute and sometimes is at the best or not best moments and it just makes you happy…….but back to the song

It’s actually a really nice song, i’ve found myself humming along to it to myself a few times, just like all or shall I say most of K.K. Slider songs it’s pretty darn catchy and has a very nice groove to it, it might be a favorite actually, I even have it playing near my town hall entrance way, it just fits there which is why I have it playing there, but it’s pretty sweet when my villagers sing along to it as it’s playing, by villagers I mean mainly Roscoe and Tabby they sing the most on my Island, Tabby probably more….but

It’s a good song and I can see and understand why everyone loves it so much!!

Now on to the song that the kinda came from…..

it’s actually a non existing one and is considered an “error” song, but it come from one of the older games of the Animal Crossing Series Wild World and no it’s not Wild World itself, although I have been trying to get K.K. Slider to sing it for me just so I can hear it, but the two times I tried……it didn’t work, but to explain a bit…..when you ask K.K. to sing Wild World, there’s a chance you might actually hear it, but it’s not a guarantee, I think you’ll have to try a few times before you randomly just comes across it……if you do great!!

However if you request it and you find that it’s not quite what you were looking for……he’ll sing, well so far i’ve only heard two filler songs…..maybe it was just one, but I feel like it was two…could be more for all I know, but if he’s not singing the Wild World theme or a song within Wild World…..he’ll be singing a different tune and I can’t tell you which one it is, because it doesn’t “exist” so to speak

When I tried the error song trick I guess you can say, it was the second attempt song the first time trying to get it that was my favorite one and I know how confusing that sounds because i’m talking about a song that you can’t even get from K.K. Slider, but it’s so good that last weekend when I tried the Wild World trick again that when I didn’t get it……I wasn’t actually upset because he ended up singing the song I like anyway, i’m going to have to try and record the song when I hear it, probably from my camera when i’m playing the game, i’d screen record it from my switch, buuuut…..I got no room…..yeah i’m going to have to fix that, because it happens all the time

but even though the song i’m talking about doesn’t technically exist in the Animal Crossing world, I still love it, I can’t actually explain it, but when I hear it probably tonight since K.K. Slider’s on my Island i’ll update this post and share it with you guys, it might look weird, but that’s okay….i’ll also let you know if I do end up hearing the Wild World theme or a song from there

P.S. reason K.K. Slider’s on my Island today is because there’s a bug off happening on my Island tomorrow K.K. usually shows up on Saturday’s, but because of the event he’s there today, which I don’t mind, I just gotta remember to play so I can get a new tune from him also it’s actually my very first bug off event since i’ve started New Horizons so i’m pretty excited for it……not that that’s important, but I still wanted to state it in case it was asked…..

but As Blathers (the owl who owns the Museum) would say and there you have it…….that’s my list to this part two post, you might see a third part to this….there was a few more songs that came to my head as I was writing this post, I actually ended up moving one of the songs that was meant to be here to be added in the most likely next part……so keep an eye out for it, you never know when it’s going to pop up….probably a month from now like this one here…….but it might also be a little later who knows,

For now I hope you all are having a good Friday and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend, stay well, stay safe and have a good one!!

All the Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk New Horizons (Animal Crossing)

Alright so I have attempted a few times at writing about Animal Crossing New Horizons and those times…..well……I just never quite finished them, but we will finally go and share some things with it today, now before I go and express on Animal Crossing New Horizons I just want to say that I was planning on writing a different post first, buuut then something happened and this one is going to be first written instead……..

Okay so New Horizons what can I say about it!? Well i’ve been playing this game for about two months now, I started on my Island adventure on the 11th of April even though the game made it’s debut on the 20th of March, for those of you that don’t know or have never played Animal Crossing it’s pretty different from the other Animal Crossing games we had before, however the heart of it hasn’t changed that much, so even though the series has evolved into something different instead of a town, it’s now an island,

the concept and everything that makes Animal Crossing is still there!! Now I can talk a whole lot about this game and the different things with it, but than we’d probably be here all day or so and i’m sure you all have important things to tend to so I won’t do that, I must say one of my favorite things about this game is not only the moments that you’d get from it,

but also the bonds and connections that you develop with your fellow islanders/villagers, it’s odd thing to explain, but if you ever played any of the Animal Crossing games than you know what I mean….. sometimes you find that you instantly are drawn to a villager without really knowing why and so instead of questioning it you just go with it, than you have those villagers that you know seem nice, but don’t really feel a huge connection to so you kinda just keep them where they are, as well as those that don’t really appeal to you all that much (a.k.a you don’t like them)

Then there’s the soft spot villagers/islanders as I like to call them where at first you don’t know what to feel when you come across them and so out of curiosity you invite them to your island so you can get to know them a bit more and you don’t think they’d be someone you’d become attach to or at least feel attach to, but you keep them anyway because you learn that you like them and so after having them around your island for a while,

One day you come across them and they’re having some deep thoughts and you’re curious to what they’re thinking about, could be anything (literally) and as you approach them…..you find that they’re thinking of moving, now in this moment you’re not sure whether to let them leave or have the stay, part of you wants them to stick around, but then there’s that part that…..doesn’t mind if they leave……and so after thinking on it for a bit,

You tell them…..they can go and you feel fine with your decision to have them venture out towards another Island……but then there’s this moment where you’re having a heart to heart and they thank you for being their friend and it’s in that moment you realize…..they truly meant a lot to you and you feel that deeply……..I say all this because well….. I had that moment today with a purple cat that you might all know very well named Bob,

He asked to move today and it was actually a pretty tough decision, didn’t think it’d be, but it was and i’m going to admit it…..I got a little emotional, but it’s because of what he said, I didn’t expect it, but as cheesy and lame as it is, it got me and I felt like such a nerd that a video game, better yet a villager that I never had before made me emotional….like…..WHY BOB!!!

I’m never going to forget this day….but most importantly, i’m never going to forget bob, he’s just a snack loving, bug friending……don’t ask (there’s actually a few of them to be fair) purple cat who was a delight to have on my island and to be honest….i’m going to miss him and his interesting character personality, he was one of my 3 villager move ins after playing for a while and i’m glad I got to get to know him so thank you bob, for being bob…i’m sure i’ll see you around eventually, for now you go enjoy those new snacks!!

Hope you get my letters, I sent two…..but for those who might still be reading, thanks for that, I know this is a weird post, but really this game means a lot to me and if I can express it deeply, I would, but this is long enough so i’ll just end it here, maybe i’ll make a part 2 post…….maybe….

All The Love ❤ ❤
