Diving is Returning to Animal Crossing in July!

Nintendo recently released a video concerning the newest updates coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons!  In just a few days (July 3, to be more exact!), the diving introduced in New Leaf will be returning, along with Pascal the otter, who will be providing us with DIY recipes for mermaid furniture.  And…it appears that Gulliver…

Top Changes I’d Like to See in New Horizons

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons receiving frequent updates to add new events and other features, I started thinking about other improvements I’d like to see in future updates.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you have any changes of your own that you’re hoping Nintendo will implement, please share your thoughts…

I’ve Got Big Plans for Quackville

Last week, I wrote about how I finally got a 5-star rating in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  With that milestone now out of the way, I decided that my next goal was to terraform the island of my dreams.  After watching a whole bunch of island tours on YouTube and general brainstorming, I had a…

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition Now Available for Switch Owners

If, as a Nintendo owner, you ever wanted to get your hands on the classic PC puzzle game, Myst, then today’s your day! (Well, okay, maybe you played its original port to the DS or 3DS way back when, but still.) Though it’s pre-orders have been up for about a week, today, Nintendo Switch fans…

The Value of Rubbish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In past Animal Crossing games, the only things of value were actual items. Clothes, furniture, fossils, etc. were the things that players wanted because they were what advanced the game. Clothes made you look cool, fossils and fish looked nice in the museum and furniture is what made your house. All of these are still…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and My Quest for the Perfect Island

As this is my third week in a row writing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s probably safe to say that I’m still thoroughly addicted to the game. There’s just so much to work on that I find myself chasing different things each day I log in. Some days I want to make some bells,…

I Still Can’t Get Enough of Animal Crossing: New Horizons Online

It’s been, what, 18 years or so since the launch of the original Xbox Live service, right? The internet fundamentally transformed how gaming has worked in the years since. So much so that we can barely imagine what an Xbox, PC, or PlayStation console would be like without it. And then there’s Nintendo. It took…

The Room: Puzzling at Its Finest

The Duck recently had the pleasure of playing a little puzzle game called The Room, which I heard about from fellow blogger The Shameful Narcissist.  Originally released as an iOS game in 2012, I got to play the Switch version, which came about far more recently (2018…I’m always late for things).  This game was a…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is My New Addiction

Hello and happy Easter everybody! It’s been awhile, but I’m finally back and ready to bring some fresh new content! It’s been a crazy month for me to be honest. I changed jobs, moved to basically the other side of the world and have been spending time getting established and set up in a completely…

The Duck’s New Thoughts on New Horizons

The newest Animal Crossing for the Switch is here at last, and I have been having a great time with it so far.  As of writing this, I’m not terribly far into the game, but I think I’ve played enough to get a decent feel for it, so it’s time I shared my initial impressions,…
