    You can get some good grinding in later during the match.

    Yeah, those empty square rooms that throw you into a battle as soon as you turn to leave. So many doors lead to rooms like that. Any further progress over the weekend?
  3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Thanks for the present wrapping tip, @Sméagol. I'll be doing that from now on! And no hard feelings @BowserBasher--life happens! Since I now know birthdays contribute towards a stamp, I will post about more as they come up. I checked the stamps requirements and I'm a long way off completing a lot of them, and there are some gaps for stamps I haven't discovered yet! I'm going to start to actively try to tick some of them off from now on... starting with getting items from deep sea diving for which I need one thousand for the next milestone. Well, at least the shop has an expensive item I need so I'll grind deep sea creatures for bells, and then use any left over bells to send letters to animals...! I have Hippeux out already (just saying, @Katie) with a blue cat from the campsite incoming. What luck! Also, Tutu (a big white bear, one of the first to come to my island) asked if she could leave and I said yes. I don't have photos for these islanders but I enjoy the rotation.
  4. Snow!

    We've just enjoyed a couple of weeks of snow, but it's nice to have it away now to be able to get outside again.

    When you said you had the present wrapped, does it endear you more to the animal if wrapping paper is used? And did you find Celeste before you left? I wished on some stars too but didn't come across her.
  6. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

    I've taken 10+ deaths in this today and because of that, discovered the game over screen is voiced by the last character to bite it. Again, it's not the general baddies so much as the bosses that are getting me. For story reasons, I was forced to skirt round the edge of the map via the ice area in the upper right, where I came across a boss that had to be fought with Karol alone. The first death was because I figured it was a scripted and unwinnable battle... but that not being the case (lol), it took me quite a few goes to get the job done. It was an airborne enemy and like similar flying bosses before it, I just couldn't seem to reach the thing consistently. After that, I died carelessly in the castle from a couple of back-attacks chaining together, and before I knew it we were overwhelmed and all dead before I could dish out the life bottles. Currently, I've left it at a save before the boss at the top of the castle who has wiped me out a few times too--again, it's a one-on-one fight that I haven't been able to cope with, but at least this time it is a ground-based opponent. I still don't know if I am under-levelled or not playing the game properly. I think it's the latter, to be honest.

    It's a penguin. The interior is all the ice stuff that we are getting recipes for at the moment. I just gave her a doll that another animal sent me in the post today.
  8. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Yeah, mentioning it as you put me onto birthdays counting towards a stamp! Gates are flung open at the moment if you and @Sméagol or anyone want to come? The house to visit is the one in the very bottom right corner. Gwen, if you are navigating by map.
  9. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    No worries! I'll check back this evening and let you know when the gates are open.
  10. It's a good game but totally skippable if you're on the fence about it imo, @Sméagol. You could check through the eShop and get a couple of games for the same price and have more fun.

    Nothing dark about it. Look how bright and cheery Wargroove is!
  12. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    There's a birthday on my island today. Does anyone want to visit for that? I'm just doing the rounds quickly at the moment but I can open up later in the day if you want.

    One-shotting the bosses? Oof! So you're clued into that, then. The post-game content is doable as long as that first character is good enough to be able to survive running from battles until you unite with the second character, then you can start to feel like you're holding your own in there. Try it and see, maybe you'll enjoy the challenge! What do you think of those nothing rooms? I think those were probably the worst thing about the game for me. (Maybe you're strong enough that they don't drain your resources.)
  14. Mine's a pinky yellow colour scheme, I think. Definitely not black and red, sorry.
