Happy birthday to our humble blog! Double Jump is officially four years old! A toddler in human years, but probably a teenager or so when it comes to things that live on the Internet. Thank you to everyone who has been hanging around with us during these past few years. We greatly appreciate the support, love, and friendship!
Yay! Double Jump’s birthday was officially on February 3, but better late than never. It’s been a fun and interesting four years. It’s been busy too. Double Jump has grown in ways we never would have imagined.
Aside from our blog continually growing with followers and readers, we also reached Twitch Affiliate status last year. Literally a year ago, to be exact. Having that support has been amazing!
It’s been a fast four years. It seems to have gone by in a blink of an eye but we’ve kept ourselves busy and we’ve played a lot of games. We played a decent amount of PC games, 3DS games, and, of course, Switch games. My favorite PC games were two we discovered after Double Jump was born – Death Road to Canada and Game Dev Tycoon.
Those were both excellent games. Death Road is hysterical when you play with the right people! Game Dev Tycoon is one of my favorites as well. I definitely have a special place in my heart for Arcade Spirits, of course, with its story and take on platonic and romantic relationships, and Deltarune was so much fun! It also had some of the best music. For 3DS, my favorite games both had to do with puzzles and solving mysteries — Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask and Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice.
I still have yet to play Arcade Spirits or Deltarune, but I know you thoroughly enjoyed both of them. As for the 3DS, you can’t go wrong with Layton and Phoenix Wright. Both of those franchises and individual games are a must-play. Although, my personal favorites for the 3DS were Animal Crossing New Leaf and Miitopia. Miitopia has easily become an overall game favorite of mine.
New Leaf wasn’t bad, despite Animal Crossing not being my usual thing, and Miitopia was wonderfully ridiculous and fun! For the Nintendo Switch, to absolutely no one’s surprise, I’m going to have to pick the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Fire Emblem: Three Houses as my top favorites. The new Pokemon games come in a close second, but the Zelda and Fire Emblem franchises truly have a couple of gems with these two.
All great games, of course. My favorites for the Switch were Gris, The Lion’s Song, and Cattails was an interesting surprise. All the Nintendo games are awesome, of course, but those are some games I never thought I’d pick up if I didn’t have to share it on a blog. We hope all of you have enjoyed our content and reviews over the last four years. More is definitely coming!
