So, how’s everyone enjoying Super Mario Maker 2? We honestly forgot to pre-order it and have yet to buy it. We were both looking forward to the game so much, aside from the hiccup regarding online play with friends, that it’s a little surprising how it slipped our minds. Of course, this past month has been busy for both of us, but still.

Honestly, it hasn’t slipped my mind so much. However, both of us have been pet-sitting for different families that we actually haven’t seen each other for two weeks. It’s kind of strange that we haven’t been able to play games together lately.

It is strange. Both of us have fallen onto more familiar, portable games such as Miitopia and Stardew Valley instead. However, Super Mario Maker 2 isn’t the only game we were looking forward to and haven’t snagged yet. We were going to get Little Friends last month on the Switch and coo over virtual pets — probably with our real pets sitting right next to us — but it wasn’t something we took the time to download.

That’s a game I keep forgetting about, honestly. We definitely need to start keeping a list of games we want and their release dates.

We keep meaning to get a magnetic whiteboard calendar or something to keep track of all of this, but we ironically keep forgetting to get a calendar. Another game I keep thinking about is the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite mobile game. I want to give it a shot despite my low expectations for it, but it’s also a game where you go outside and it’s too hot out for me, haha!

Like Pokemon Go, I don’t want to get the Harry Potter game on my phone due to storage and battery life. Though I definitely do want to give it a try. Soon, I’ll download it and give it a shot. Also, there’s Lady Layton. The game came out for the 3DS, we own it, and never got the chance to play it. Now, we recently found out that it’s coming to the Switch in November 2019.

Yes, I just heard about Lady Layton today and I lamented over the fact that it’s coming out for the Switch. I’m looking forward to playing one of those addictive games on the big screen, considering Rachel and I tend to hunch over our 3DS handhelds while playing together. Summer used to be all about playing video games and relaxing during our vacations, so here’s hoping we’ll get some time to try some new games!

The summer is just beginning! So, I’m sure we’ll get the chance to play a lot of games – old and new – together.

New Game Radar: Little Friends Dogs and Cats

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday everyone!

The Nintendo Switch is still going strong, considering its second birthday just passed! Games are constantly coming out for it, and I’ve recently heard of a new game coming out this spring that is a spiritual successor to a game I used to adore.

Over a year ago, I did a Flashback Friday for Nintendogs for the Nintendo 3DS. It was a simulation game where one could adopt and take care of up to three, I believe, puppies (or cats, if you had that version). They were absolutely adorable and, with how much I love animals, I was smitten. Granted, there wasn’t much of a goal in the game, other than perhaps using the voice controls to teach your dog tricks and play with the agility and Frisbee competitions, but it was a chill and sweet game.

Now, there seems to be a spiritual successor in the works and slated for a spring release on the Nintendo Switch. Little Friends: Dogs and Cats sounds pretty damn close to what Nintendogs was — you adopt up to three animals, be they a mixture of species or all one species, and care for them. Judging by the trailer, you can dress them up, take them on walks, maybe even decorate your house a little bit with furniture and toys catered to the animals.

Unlike Nintendogs, which had several versions of the game with plenty of different breeds to choose from, Little Friends only has half a dozen breeds of dogs to choose from and only three breeds of kittens. Still, for a virtual pet game, it looks charming. If you’re a sucker for baby animals like me, it’ll probably be a decent game to stick on whenever you want a few minutes to relax.
