I hate those games where you need to buy stuff to get ahead.

I got wrapped up into one that builds forts and militaries to attack other maps. It's name escapes me now but I think I spent something like €100 playing it. There was no way around spending money to get ahead... needless to say, I quit that kind.

Microtransactions will ruin gaming. It's fine when what you are buying is an extra, somewhat large, chunk of the game like with Breath of the Wild, but when they start charging for XP or a better weapon or stuff like that it gets into a scary area. You can grind for like 20 hours to get the weapon or pay $2, $5 or whatever $$ to get it right away. Grinding to get those things is fun in a well made games, in games where they are trying to get more of your money, the grind is an un-fun slog.

Nintendo published games (generally speaking) are a good example of paid DLC done right.
E.A. published games (generally speaking) are a good example of DLC done awfully wrong.

e3 is on!

It's been going for a couple days now but the part I care about is Nintendo and they have their 40 min video presentation today at 12 EST. Really all I want to see in Animal Crossing news. Anything else will be a bonus. I played AC for 3ds for about 300 hours. It's such a fun, relaxing, cute game I can't wait to have a new on on the Switch.

In personal video game news, I just played 8 straight hours of the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. I woke up at 7:30 and just stopped playing. The only break I took was for a shower.

I spent two hours today playing old school Legend of Zelda on NES (on the wii).

Stay at home day 11
That's a great one. The newest Zelda, Breath of the Wild takes a ton of inspiration from that OG game where it just throws you into the game and you can go wherever you want exploring. My favorite 2d Zelda has to be it's sequel on the SNES though, A Link to the Past.

Still going strong with Animal Crossing over here. It's a lot of fun. Today I plan to craft a bedroom set. Very exciting stuff!

Big Breaking News!

After a mere 65 hours of gameplay I finally unlocked terraforming In Animal Crossing New Horizons. I just made a creek that went from a river to a pond.

As you all can see #UnemploymentLife is going great.
