I'm the kinda person who will try anything once.
Go right ahead, label me as a geek or a nerd, whatever, I like to play Magic Cards and I ended up playing more than once.
The first time I was introduced to Magic, I felt like it wasn't for me... but why not? I really liked Pokemon cards when I was younger so why not this? Magic cards gave off that vibe of a bunch of people playing in a dimly lit basement that smells like a pizza shop with a hint of BO, and some people take Magic Cards very serious, which can be intimidating.
I'll admit, as a newbie playing with people who already know the game makes it a lot easier to get into. Having a friend or your spouse help introduce you to the game is a great way to learn about how the turns work and what the different card types do, but Its JUST a card game, anyone can figure it out.
What makes it so fun, is all the different "creatures" and "enchantments" ect. that you can build a deck with... Super strong Angels? Zombies? Spirits? All pirates? OR DINOSAURS? There are different decks that have different cards all with their own special powers. There's another box being released soon* that my boyfriend and I are excited to go buy! *I think this weekend? IXALAN
Check out the video of us playing! We each built new decks and battled to the death! Who wins? *This was my FIRST TIME building my own deck!
We went out this weekend and got the new block Rivals of Ixalan! Watch me unbox it in my first ever ASMR type video (this may help you fall asleep)
I even filmed some behind the scenes stuff, of us going to the Magic store to pick up the cards, a vlog of our day for Patreon!! Subscribe to get access to that 7+min video and more extra content
I'm all for a good mobile game. One that keeps me coming back every few hours to do small annoying tasks that add up to a larger goal. HELLO THE ANIMAL CROSSING APP! I had no idea this was "in the works" which is probably for the best because I would have been tirelessly counting down the days till its release. I only found out about it WHEN IT CAME OUT AND I FREAKED THE F OUT!!!! THIS WAS MY FAV THING TO PLAY ON GAME CUBE!!! I even went out and bought the Nintendo DS Animal Crossing Version when it was released... like not just the game the entire system...
Well this is useless to me now BECAUSE ITS ALL ON AN APP ON MY PHONE THANK YOU NINTENDO!!!
In the Pocket Camp app, you walk around completing tasks for other animals to gain amenities to build your campsite. You also build furniture to invite guests... The guests are super high maintenance and all want different stuff. Unlike "Happy Home Designer" on the DS - in this version you live out of an RV. *Its like Nintendo MADE THIS FOR ME LOL* You can still decorate everything, even the inside of your RV!! Best part about the RV life in animal crossing is you never need to dump the shitter
The part about the app I'm enjoying the most is when you complete the tasks and get "rewards" - There isn't always an epic cut scene that shows you doing an activity you just helped an animal with BUT WHEN THERE IS.... I SCREEN SHOT IT!
Because how cute is this? Srsly. I love this game.
It may not be for everyone, but I've enjoyed myself thus far! If you are too, add me!
Here's my friend ID:
I don't care if you don't like the game... IM TOTALLY OBSESSED WITH IT AND THEY BETTER RELEASE THE CANADIAN VERSION ASAP!!!
Pokemon Go is making nerds come out of their basement to go capture Pokemon in real life using your phone's GPS
It's the most social video game I've ever played, and in the past week I've walked 20km. My legs are so sore. But hatching the Magmar was worth it!!
Rumor is we officially get the game sometime next week, but if you are impatient like I am, you probably downloaded it from the American App Store. Here are my strongest Pokemans:
If you noticed your phone dies REALLY fast when playing this game... Open the app and click the pokeball at the bottom of the screen and go to settings in the top right corner to turn on the "Battery Saver" - Might help!
I am totally hooked.
Hooked like it's some sort of drug.
I play when I wake up
I play before I fall asleep...
I lose sleep because im playing....
I play when im not supposed to...
for extended periods of time in the bathroom at work... Whenever I get the chance.
And here I am now, writing a blog about it and thinking "why the fuck am I doing this and not just playing BEARS?"
Ladies and Gentlemen,
If you like word games...
If you like cute bears dressed in different costumes...
Making cute bears say totally inappropriate things?
Download in the app store for free! Its called
Basically you spell words (before their timer runs out) to gain points and collect different types of bears with different types of power ups! At the end of each level the bears take the words you've spelt and insert them into generic sentences.
Fun if you have a dirty mind like me!!
