Watching the Game

My hubby is currently playing Mario Galaxy. Sometimes it is quite painful to watch! He has such a hard time with tasks that I find relatively simple! Then he tries to do the stars that even I found difficult and I cannot bear to watch... which is why I am writing this! Ha ha.

I finally went and updated my ACC catalogue for Animal Crossing. I have almost completed my catalogue, but there are a few more items I have left to get. I only have one song left to complete my list of K.K. Sliders tunes. That I will hopefully remember to get on Saturday. I also only have a couple more bugs and fish to catch. I havent even bothered trying with those in ages. I'm still waiting to wifi with the person who wants Tangy. They haven't responded to me yet.

I'm also working on a mural right now. I started it ages ago and then quit a couple of years ago due to going to school. I just started getting back into it again and am quite excited with how well it is turning out. I'll post pics when it is done. It is of Ganondorf, Link, and Zelda. I finished Link and Zelda already a long time ago, but only started Ganondorf when I quit working on it. Now I'm finishing him up. I will probably finish by the end of the week if I continue to spend a little time each day on it.

Keep on Playin!

So I just added the list of games I want to get under my list of current games. I could probably add a lot more, but for now those are the ones I could think of. If anyone has game suggestions, let me know ;).

Another great game is Rock Star! I played it at a friends house and we had a blast. The drums and guitar are fun, and singing into the mike isn't too bad. I didn't know any of the songs, and on the easy setting I still managed a high 90 percentile. I'm sure you have to hit the pitch much more accurately in more difficult settings. Apparently the most difficult setting for the drums is basically like actually playing drums! Sounds like lots of fun! Too bad they don't have that game for the Wii... although it is rather pricey! Looks like it would be a fun party game... instead of Kareoke, go for this! Piles of fun!

I've been continuing to play my Animal Crossing Wild World on a daily basis, mostly to water flowers and such. Tangy just moved out of my town, and there is someone on ACC (see web links) that wants her, so I won't wifi till we set a time to do so... but then I cannot allow any villagers to move out till then, so it had better be soon! The ninth slot in that game is interesting. If you have a townie that moves, they go into your ninth 'out' slot. Then when you wifi with someone, they will move into that person's ninth 'in' slot, and move into their town. I will then get whomever is in their 'out' slot. The townie will remember you even after they moved, they keep all your letters, the furniture you sent them, etc. It's really neat! I can't wait to see what they do to the Wii version!

Anyway, I feel like playing Mario Galaxy, or as Luigi is now calling it, Super 'Luigi' Galaxy! Lol. Keep playin!

Mario Galaxy - Fun with Luigi

I've been having a blast with Mario Galaxy. I managed to get all 120 stars with Mario and am now playing as Luigi. It's so funny, you have to save yourself in the Haunted Mansion, and everyone talks about your double. Ha ha. Anyway, I had some fun with it.

Here's my fun little vid. I call it "Luigi giving himself a headache". Not terribly creative, I know, but I had to have some fun with it.

Here are a few other photos I took for fun.

He actually is still calling for Mario here.

I don't blame him for the snooze...

Ha ha! "Are you me?"

The things Luigi says to himself are hilarious.

I thought this was cute... two Luigi's save a green star!

Anyway, I thought you'd enjoy these pics, as I enjoyed taking them. This game really is so fun to play. I can't wait to get the purple comets! Till later, Keep on Playin!

Fun with Games

I love games. Sometimes, a little too much. My faves are nintendo games, mainly Zelda and Mario. I'm also a big big fan of Animal Crossing.

I decided to make this blog as a fun little item totally dedicated to gaming. I usually play my Animal Crossing Wild World (DS) game on a daily basis, and am on a site called the Animal Crossing Community, which is a fun way to connect with other players. I also own the Wii and the Gamecube, the gameboy player attachment for the cube, and a gameboy advance. I have a lot of games, not as many as some by far, but enough to keep me interested. Oh, and I LOVE the Wii Shop Channel. I haven't bought many games on there yet, but it is sooo much fun to look at all the oldies I used to play as a kid, and then wonder if I should try to get back into them again.

I eventually want to make some fun little videos to put on Youtube that I can post here using bits and pieces from games. I need a video capture device first, one that I can hook up to my tv and my computer so I can capture digital video of my games whenever I wish. We're looking into a program called Pinnacle. This would also be useful to transfer my video camera mini DV to the computer as well. Any suggestions?

I will be posting again, probably later today, as I've been having lots of fun playing Mario Galaxy and took a few pics yesturday. Till later!

Keep on Playin!
