Obviously this episode is going to be all about my thoughts on the new Animal Crossing Direct that Nintendo just shared. But not completely… first I have to talk about a few movies I saw. But it’s mostly Animal Crossing!

Dear Diary,

It was kind of a great week on Xanadu! I learned new things, had fun parties, made a new friend, and got some awesome new things! Well, mostly…

Dear Diary,

It was a pretty good week on Xanadu, but I had to say goodbye to someone and I’m not sure I made the right decision…

I finally got around to watching that Monster Hunter movie and I have… thoughts. Plus, I forgot to talk about that casting news for the Mario movie in the last episode so I get to that as well as the new Pokemon Legends Arceus trailer that came out!

Dear Diary,

Well, this was a slightly disappointing week on the island of Xanadu. But at least I didn’t lose one of my oldest friends, so that’s a plus!

This episode I talk about the new movie The Eyes of Tammy Faye, then how I’m alternating collecting bits and bobs in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with actually assassinating those leftover Order members still hanging around. And while the Animal Crossing mention in the new Nintendo Direct was a tease, the new games added to Nintendo Online were a surprise!

Dear Diary,

It was a relatively quiet week on Xanadu, but there was a lot of activity towards the end of the week and I even learned a few new things! Score! Although this week wasn’t without its share of disappointments…

This episode I talk about how I’m still playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla even after “finishing” it, then segue into bitching about my PS4 not shutting down and waking up properly but I found a way to fix it for now. And finally, the release of Colors Live for the Nintendo Switch has me wishing it was Art Academy instead.

Dear Diary,

Well, I had the opportunity to make a new friend this week but then it was taken away from me and a new friend was just forced on me, basically. Actually, this whole week was a case of good luck, bad luck! Let me explain…

I saw some movies over the past week so I have thoughts on Shang Chi, Malignant, and Candyman to share before talking about how I finished Assassin’s Creed Valhalla… sort of. It’s complicated. Let me explain!
