Miitopia is Way Better Than It Has Any Right to Be

When I initially saw a partial playthrough of the original 3DS release of Miitopia on YouTube, my expectations were low.  You see, I’ve never been a big fan of Mii’s.  For me, these simple, customizable characters were just not very appealing, and so I expected Miitopia to be a shallow and dull experience.  I was quickly surprised by how charming and quirky the game ended up being, and I found myself toying with the idea of playing Miitopia for myself.  I finally gave the game a try after the demo was released for the Switch, and it wasn’t long before a full copy of the game was added to my library.  I had been writing about my experiences with the game over the last few months, and today, it’s finally time for a full review.

Playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf with Mother Duck

Ever since its origin on the GameCube, Animal Crossing has always been one of those few games that both Mother Duck and I enjoy playing.  While she prefers more peaceful games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, it is rare for me to play a game that doesn’t involve some grand adventure, platforming, RPG, or otherwise.  Nevertheless, Animal Crossing just has a certain level of charm that even I can’t resist.
