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!


Dear Diary,

It was a pretty quiet week on the island although there were a few events of note. One that actually made me feel pretty terrible, though. So it wasn’t all good!


Didn’t go to the movies because it was still opening weekend for Shang Chi. But I was delighted by a new romance I encountered in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, disappointed by the newest update to No Man’s Sky, and irritated by the PS4 to PS5 upgrade situation. Enjoy!


Dear Diary,

It’s the end of another month, and naturally, the beginning of a new one brings new gifts and discoveries. Maybe not as many as before, but even now there are still new things to find on the island of Xanadu. And as a bonus, I didn’t lose my boyfriend!


In this episode I give my thoughts on Free Guy and The Protege before bitching a little about aspects of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles that get on my nerves and wrapping up by being cautiously optimistic about Pokémon Legends Arceus!


Dear Diary,

Another fun, relaxing week on Xanadu where I got some new(ish) items for my hoard… er, collection. Oh, and remember the other week when I was complaining about how I never get any DIY recipes out of the balloons? Well, I checked and it turns out that I already have all of the summer shell DIY recipes! That rug was the last one I didn’t have and I didn’t even realize it! So… yay, I guess?
