It’s here! I can’t freaking wait to play this game. Christopher bought it for me as a reward for passing my citizenship interview and civics test (and after a lot of whining 😁) I’m so excited to play it. This is the limited edition which comes with a beautiful Mylne figure. Here is the box before opening:
Before I show the figure I want to share a couple of trailers I found on YouTube:
And here she is! A gorgeous little thing.
I had some trouble getting her on the stand, but once I was done, it’s pretty solid:
I’m playing my games in order, it’ll be a while until I get to this one. But I imagine it’s one of those I’ll end up streaming!
I’m really excited to play my first Atelier game! I have Rorona, but not for Switch, so I never got around to playing it. Based on these officially released screenshots from a couple years back, the characters have a bit of a dead-eye look, but also look very pretty:
When I get around to it, I’ll be sure to blog my playthrough. Right now I’m still getting through Café Enchanté.
So last night ended a little rough. Completely from out of nowhere I got these terrible stomach cramps and I’m just gonna… omit what followed, but it was bad. I had to completely abandon the dinner I was in the middle of cooking for poor Christopher, and it took me a full two hours to recover. In the end Christopher made me a biscuit with butter and some scrambled egg and tea, and that rejuvenated me. But it spoiled our evening overall. 😞
Today I’m still not 100%, but better. Kinda. I hope I don’t take another bad turn as the day goes. I have so much to do…
I ended up playing more Giraffe and Annika in bed, so I have a few more screenshots to share:
It truly is a lovely game, very relaxed… the best part has to be the music, it’s so Ghibli-esque, and Anikka is such an utterly adorable character.
I did get to my first boss battle, and gosh I sucked at it (though I did win by button mashing). Battles are a rhythm game, and that is not my forte. I cannot keep a beat to save my life.
There are also “cards” to collect as you go along, called “Meowsterpieces”:
The story starts off very cryptic and still is for me, but it’s become clear in a comic snippet and by this dialogue that Giraffe is quite a bit older than Annika:
So yeah, defeated a boss and learned how to jump, I am also able to replay the rhythm games now, so perhaps I’ll improve. ^_^;
I have a few more entries in drafts so hopefully I’ll get them posted today.
With Code: Realize ~Guardian Of Rebirth~ sadly behind me, it’s time to play Giraffe And Annika, hopefully to completion, before I can get my hands on Code: Realize ~Future Blessings~. Today I played for barely a few minutes, but it looks like a delightful time.
It was a treat to finally get to open this gorgeous box:
As you can see, it comes with an artbook, three tiny patches, and a music CD. The music in the game already sounds wonderful so I’m happy about that. It’s a gorgeous collector’s edition.
Annika is an adorable character. Sometimes she appears drawn, sometimes in 3D. She’s always very cute and a joy to play.
Oh, oh, guess what!! Drumroll please…
I GOT MY PRO CONTROLLER!! 🥳🥳🥳
Mwako bought it for me in exchange for two Telegram stickers, and since drawing him is hardly work, it’s so much fun, it was certainly worth the trade.
Just look how nicely it matches my case! 😭💕✨💕✨💕
For playing games like Giraffe and Anikka, this controller is a delight. I’m very, very happy!
And that’s it for this post. I’ll have more to share tomorrow!
Christopher wanted to take advantage of a Best Buy sale today, so we went out! I wore my new ODU onesie that Yookey designed. It has the cutest pastel dinos all over it:
Christopher has really been spoiling me lately. He got me another new game, Giraffe and Annika: Musical Mayhem Edition, which I’ve promised myself I will not open until I’ve finished Code: Realize / Guardian Of Rebirth.
This game just looks like the cutest thing from the box alone! It’s also quite well reviewed.
It’s a big thick box, comes with lots of goodies: a CD with the soundtrack, an art book and three patches!!
We also had McDonald’s for lunch. It was a really cheerful outing. Christopher tempered his spoiling of me with savage one liners such as:
Me: "I love this game already, it looks so stupid and cute."
Him, patting me on the head in front of the cashier: "Just like you!"
And, upon me commenting about it being a one-player game:
My mood hasn’t been great for a few days now. I tried and tried to do things to cheer myself up and it wasn’t working… today Christopher let me get the new Pokémon game and I’m finally sitting playing it and feeling happy for the first time in days. It really isn’t as much about the game as it is about how much he cares about me. I really love him a lot.
I love this yogurt so much! It’s one of my favorite “Little” snacks.
Lucky Bars are another. I always have a hard time finding LuckyBars and they are honestly expensive for what they are but they are not too unhealthy and they’re one of my current favorite Littlespace snacks!
My little lady and I have been spending more time together 💕🐱 (for those not familiar with Rosie she lost an eye to an infection when she was very small, before we adopted her.)
A buncha huggable pals…
A package came for Christopher and he told me to open it. It was a copy of Collection Of Mana, for me! I was really surprised! 😭💕💕💕
I can’t wait to play with this… I love him!
