Top Favorites At The Moment…..

Disclaimer: I started this post Friday, but I just hadn’t gotten the chance to finish it just yet, but i’m going to be finishing it today so……on to the post!!

Well we’ve come towards the end of the week, hope everyone’s Friday is treating them all well and I hope you’re having good weather, it’s pretty cold and windy with a bit of rain, over where I am, although there’s not much rain happening at the moment, but the weather has been pretty gloomy these past few days, Spring should be around the corner soon so i’m sure it’ll clear up eventually, but to be honest…..I don’t really mind the cold,

Somewhat anyway, sometimes it’s too cold for my liking, but i’d say it’s better than being really hot so it’ll do for the meantime…….

Anyway, I thought since it’s the end of the week i’d talk about some of my favorite things that i’ve been enjoying lately, it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these, so I figured why not give a new update on some things that I have been into during this month and past month as well!!

First on the list……..RIME:

First on the list is one of my favorites to where i’d probably say it a second time, i’ve just started playing this game a couple days ago and it’s quite the story I must say, there’s so much to this game that a lot of the time i’m questioning just what exactly is going on, but whenever I play this game, I find myself becoming easily immerse in it, it’s just a really good game!!

I love adventure type games, where you get to explore and do all these different things…..now Rime is the first game that i’ve played that is more open world based, where you get to take your time and explore and see everything without having to automatically beat the game right away,

You’re not having to rush through it, with rime I find you have to have patients, what I like about this game is that it makes you really pay attention and look at everything, if you just play rime with the mindset of wanting to just finish the game, you’re going to miss a lot and I like that it allows you to really soak the world you’re playing in……in ha!!

It’s a game that i’d recommend giving a try and really letting yourself get lost in when you play, now there’s obviously some stuff to it, that can be a bit of a annoyance and it’s more the way the camera can get at times as well as it sometimes carries some lags with it, but other than that, it’s still a pretty top notch game, the stories great, even though i’m still putting the pieces that it reveals together, soundtrack to it is just beautiful!!

It’s just a really enjoyable and all around game that has really become one of my favorites at the moment, so again i’d really recommend it!!

2nd on the list……Dark Chocolate Kit Kats

Yeah probably a very weird and random thing to put on a list, but don’t worry this won’t be long, i’ve just been very obsessed with these lately, it’s just really good, I know that dark chocolate isn’t really everyone’s favorite, because it’s a bit more bitter than regular chocolate, but I really like these, I don’t eat them all time, that would not be healthy, but I must say these are simply the best, probably prefer them over the originals to be honest,

Don’t know why, I didn’t really eat kit kat’s all that often, in fact they were probably pretty low on the list of chocolate’s I liked, but when I tried this one for the first time, I couldn’t really get how good they were out of my head after trying them so yeah they’ve climbed a good few spots on the list.

Last on the list…….Mediative Chilled Music (as I like to call it)

This is the thumbnail from one of my favorite chilled mix playlist, if you’re curious to know who the artist of it is, I left it for you guys, but you can also find it in the videos description as well

I’m not really sure what it is about mediative music, but it’s soooo soothing and there’s so many different ones to choose from, that it’s ridiculous, but in a good way of course, i’ve been listening to it for a good few months now, but it’s great to have as background noise when you need to re clam yourself, if you’re reading working on something whatever you do really,

It just brings a good feeling with it, there’s one for every category, seriously not kidding, if you need something nice and calm to listen to, definitely try it out, if it’s something you’ve never considered doing before!! Here’s one of my favorites in case you guys are interested, i’ll leave a few actually:

Wonderland|Beautiful Chill Mix (BLUME)

Ambient Space Music (Relaxation Space Music)

Mountains|Beautiful Chill Mix (BLUME)

And that is all my favorites at the moment, not that big of a list, but it’s still good, yeah still good…. (says in a stitch voice….sorta) let me know what are your favorite things are at moment, i’d love to hear about it!! Hope you’re all having a good weekend, even though it’s almost over……hope you also had a nice week as well and hope you have a good upcoming one.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Random Topic Of The Day: Let’s Talk Video Games And Themes (Animal Crossing One Of My Favorites)

Well hello everyone and welcome to MY BLOG!!! Hope you’re all well, if you’re wondering why I just opened up my blog post that way it’s because while I was writing the first sentence to this blog post, I thought about a Youtuber I enjoy watching his name is MatPat and on his channel he talks about games and films, but he theorizes it and the opening to his videos are “Well hello everyone, welcome to GAME THEORY or FILM THEORY…..you get it haha……if you’re interested in watching his stuff you can find it here Game Theory and here Film Theory I think you’ll enjoy it, at least I hope you do.

Anyway that’s not what I wanted to talk about, it was just something that came to mind so I thought i’d share that with you and it also is a different opening, I hope you enjoyed that, but yeah today’s topic is a random one, that actually just came into my mind literally a few minutes ago (well by the time you read this, those few minutes would have long passed so it just came to me randomly, yeah) i’m not really sure how long this post is gonna be, but yeah we’ll see.

Right now it’s around 2:30pm afternoon time of course and I just started writing…..what you don’t know is i’ve been trying to write for a goood while now, I was hoping that something would come to me to write about and nothing came at least not until now. I thought maybe if I watched a video of some sort there would be some kind of topic I could possibly share my thoughts on and yeahhh…….nothing spark my creativity nor gave me some kind of inspiration, that was until I started listening to some music. Now you’re probably thinking it’s normal music, you know favorite artist kind of music and if you thought that……boy were you wrong, but that’s okay, it happens, no needs to worry (no that’s not a typo I did that on purpose)

The kind of music i’m talking about is theme music, specifically game theme music, why am I talking about game themes, well i’m glad you asked (I know you didn’t ask, but just go with okay) I’m talking about game themes because a game theme inspired this blog post, so I thought i’d just share my thoughts on that with you guys, which I hope you don’t mind…….the game that i’m talking about here just to get to it is Animal Crossing, I don’t know if a lot of you have ever played or heard of the game, but it’s one of my favorite games to play. For those of you who don’t know what the game is about, well you pretty much just build your own town, well at least in the New leaf one, there’s so many different versions of the game, There’s the original Animal Crossing game, then you have Wild World, City Folk and so many others. I would say that it’s one of the best games to play, along with it being addictive when you first start playing it, but it’s fun though.

I haven’t played the game in ages at least not the ones where you build your own town, I just recently started playing Happy Home Designer again and I forgot how fun it was and how much I missed the games. I recently just found this youtuber who plays a lot of different kind of games and does reviews as well for games, but one of the main games that she plays is Animal Crossing and i’m really enjoying her channel, at the moment i’m watching her play ACPC (Animal Crossing Pocket Camp) I just forgot how good Animal Crossing is, just talking about it makes me want to play it again, but yeah i’m getting off track here what I wanted to talk about with the game is the music that plays within the game, it’s soooo goood, SO GOOD. I have certain favorites that I enjoy, if I had to choose one though I would say the cafe music, there’s just something about it that I love it’s great.

The main song that I wanted to talk about, is the one that gave me the idea of this blog post and that song is called 2pm and it’s from City Folk, I think that’s the third installment from the Animal Crossing Series (I checked I think it is yeah) City Folk is probably one of the best Animal Crossing games from the franchise, everyone that’s played the game, would probably rate it as one of their top favorites and I would say it’d be mine as well. Going back to the 2pm song from City Folk, the reason i’m bringing it up is because that theme when you listen to it, fits sooooo well when you have no idea what to do and that’s pretty much what was happening with me today.

I did a few things not a lot, but a bit and after I finished those things I wasn’t quite sure what to do, I cleaned certain parts of my room, getting rid of stuff I didn’t want nor needed, then I came over to my computer to write something and I couldn’t, I literally sat in front of my computer screen and stared at the blank unwritten post, I then went outside sat out there for a few minutes, then came back in hoping that would help and it didn’t, so I just started listening to the Animal Crossing soundtrack i’m not quite sure why but I did and it was an hour long, but yeah I listened to it and when 2pm came on (the song) it gave me an idea to write about Animal Crossing and the music in it, I didn’t think the blog post would be this long though, I guess I must really love the game to write about it.

I started writing this blog post trying to talk about how certain video game themes go with the mood you’re in as with how most songs tend to do as well, but then I realized half way in while writing this post, this just became me fangirling (excitedly freaking out) about the game which I didn’t expect to happen and said to myself I think I should’ve made this into a video instead of writing about it because I feel it would’ve been more of a video idea then a blog post idea, but I had already started writing so much on the topic soooo I just continued, I know that this isn’t really useful information, but it was something that came to mind and I wanted to share it, anyway that’s all I have for today, sorry if this isn’t your kind of read, I just got a little excited about this topic, it’s one of my favorite games……yeah…..anyway I hope you’re all having a lovely day and that you have a great night/morning and or evening.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤
