The Professional Gamer - February 2, 2018

Hello and Happy Groundhog Day! Hopefully, no one got stuck in a permanent time loop, with a large rodent as their only companion. By good fortune, I have not.

The Professional Gamer - November 27, 2017

I'm going back on my word a bit here, but here I am, with something that I want to talk about. This week, Nintendo released Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. My short review: it is a lot of fun so far, but I'm concerned that the fun might drop off as I get further into the game and have to put more effort into collecting items and getting materials from the animal friends. I'm up to level 15 and have more than 8 animals invited to my campsite. My next order of business is upgrading my campsite. If you enjoy the Animal Crossing series, you'll likely enjoy this game as a more casual entry in the series.

I'm continuing to follow seasonal anime, and I'll talk more about that next week. I also finished watching the second season of Konosuba, which I sometimes feel is the biggest piece of trash, and at other times think is a brilliant critique of the "alternate worldgenre. I'm going to drift back into my turkey induced slumber and wish you all well. Have a great week, and game on!
