So, after mentioning the latest Animal Crossing New Leaf update, I had some people email to ask for my Dream Address (a way to check out someone’s town), which is 5C00-0035-542F. In fact, let’s just leave this right here…
My town is called Lovely because of course it is, and my house is mostly a mix of furniture from the ‘Regal’ and ‘Exotic’ series, plus plants, flowers, and white brick walls. And a creepy basement. But pink brick pathways and flowers and topiaries and all that cuteness outside!
Eleanor and August each have a house in our town, too. If you’re looking for a game that you and your kids can all enjoy, Animal Crossing New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS is a great one, and it’s only $20. It came out in 2013, so it’s definitely not new, but if you have a 3DS and missed this one until now, it’s worth picking up.
Rumor has it there may be a new title heading to the Nintendo Switch or for mobile, but I haven’t seen anything official. Brandon follows gaming news, so he knows and is into everything that’s new and upcoming, and he hasn’t heard anything yet either.
Animal Crossing is for sure one of my favorite Nintendo franchises, but having grown up a child of the 80s, I’ve had my favorite games over the years. Oregon Trail and Lemonade Stand gave way to Super Mario Brothers, Sim City, Riven, and The Sims. Other favorites that I immediately think of are Pikmin, The Legend of Zelda (Wind Waker was the cutest), and Okami. The fighting games (Mortal Kombat and the like) and the Rock Band titles were fun too. Oh, Katamari Damacy! Never forget baby Eleanor dressed as The Prince. (It still kills me that I forgot to add the final ribbon trim around each end of the headpiece. Gah!)
OK, nerding out is over for today. Off to work on some IRL rooms! *Pushes up glasses, pushes up sleeves.*
