Fantasy Life: Story Adventures & Multiplayer Fun

I’ve been in a kind of weird place with Fantasy Life where I’m both discouraged due to not being able to get further in many of the skills due to how I did my stats and just really excited and wanting to play as much as I can. Despite that, I still pushed through and I managed to get quite a bit done including getting my first Master Rank in Wizard/Magician.

But yes, we started the next chapter and headed to the palace only to see a huge line of very confused people waiting to see the King:

Of course, we were allowed ahead and given our next mission:

And we were off to Port Puerto–officially this time!:

Still so pretty T~T

And I really love their color schemes:

We ended up adventuring with Olivia to help find the treasure:

I really loved all the ocean views in this area:

This chapter also went quite quickly:

I also FINALLY managed to find my fiancé’s character that I’ve been StreetPassing!


It seems you need to met about 5 times to get your friendship high enough for a gift. I really enjoy the random blurbs they say.

Regardless, we succeeded and received much praise from the King:

And I ended up getting a pretty new wand thanks to a friend:

I also received a special gift from the Hunter at the campsite who we ended up getting Honey for during the Hunter chapter:

It was then off to our next jounrey which had us very high up:

And despite running into trouble, we were saved by a mysterious Black Knight:

We then met a very… interesting knight:

Even though the town is essentially a desert, there was still many lovely sights:

Not to mention the “castle” in this town was very… Halloween-esque in a way:

And despite his name and reputation, Damien is pretty cool:

Really, nearly all the characters are great or grow on you. I think the only one I found frustrating or annoying is your “rival” in the Hunter story. Nox from the Wizard story can go either way.

But yes, we managed to solve several mysteries upon finding the last Dark Sultan:

And yes, the King apparently looks the way he does due to a prank… whether this prank is ever reversed, who knows.

I also really love this Goddess item:

The anchor from the last part of the story was pretty cool too–didn’t care much for the cog though.

And I bought a cat!:

I also bought this cute outfit:

With that chapter done, I decided to work some more on challenges such as having Odin and Laura help me beat the Forest Wraith:

Then I had lots of fun exploring with Skcoddam:

Along with finding areas I had yet to see:

And I caught another big fish:

With help from Skcoddam and Zach, I finished my challenges and became a Master Wizard and was completely shocked when a vocalized theme started playing.


From this scene alone, I really want to get to Master Rank and above in every license SO badly. Sadly, I seem to be in a horrible loop of failure right now with it :(

But yes, I received my first Life Trophy!:

I also bought the houses in Port Puerto and Al Maajik:

And finally, this line amuses me everytime:

Looking forward to continuing the story tomorrow night or Thursday! And yes, I will be streaming again once I’m back home :)

Fantasy Life: A Slow Progress

At the moment, the hardest thing for me is trying to decide between taking it slowly and leveling up things/completing all the challenges while I can or focusing more on completing the story. I’m still not sure which is the better way to go which makes things kind of hard. Technically, the former is probably better, but there’s certain classes (specifically, the other three combat classes) I just reeeeeeeally don’t care for. The others aren’t too bad, but take a lot longer and while I’m still enjoying them, part of me just really wants to enjoy the story.

The other thing I need to remember is to switch classes before I work on challenges. While I can use the skills at any point regardless of class due to getting all the licenses, there are actually certain penalties for having a different life than the one that actually uses that skill such as not catching as rare/better quality fish if not an Angler (more or less a lower chance to) and getting less wood/minerals.

But yes, let’s move on to some of the things accomplished toda–well, yesterday now. First, we received a special anonymous letter to head to the Palace. As per usual, Butterfly did the talking:

She honestly does kind of remind me of some people I know.

We also were able to spend some time in the Castle Garden during the day:

I still want her dress.

Then, we finally met Princess Laura! Well, how she normally looks anyway:

I’d want her dress in pink.

And since my fiancé has the game as well, the StreetPass function was triggered!:

Unfortunately, I still can’t find his character lurking around town :/

After spending way too much time getting distracted, I finally started to continue the story with Laura (who does not like being referred to as Princess)–I couldn’t help but take a few screenshots of some of the scenery though:

We then met Laura’s grandfather:

And I cut down another Elder Tree (I’m sorry tree T~T):

Eventually (after more distractions), we finally made it to the snowy part of the mountain:

And of course, I still took more pictures due to cute things:

We then finally made it to the top… or at least pretty close to it:

On the way over there, I had noticed a giant fish. Thus, rather than continuing up to the summit, I decided to pause and try and catch the fish.

I mean, just look at it. It was a hard and grueling battle, but well…

You can just watch it for yourself.

We then continued up to the summit–finding treasure along the way:

And of course, we managed to save the day:

As thanks, the Nap Dragon gave us a special treasure:

And Butterfly totally changed forms some strange mysterious lady appeared:

I also ended up getting some new clothes from the vendor near where I caught the fish:

I actually wanted to buy more, but the area ended up being closed off after I finished the chapter :/ Which stinks as I screwed up bringing the fish in (I needed to bring the bounty itself to the Flower in the Guild Building on the Bounty Desk–not just go to any Bounty and talk to the flower with the fish) and I really wanted to catch another too.

Regardless, I managed to catch another special fish:

And this time, I did the Bounty thing correctly.

I had unlocked the next town and I have to say, the town is gorgeous:


I really want a house there.

I also bought my next pet–a cute pink puppy named Sakura:

I’d like to get a Cat too, but I need to get my Bliss Higher. I may put my next Bliss rewards into mounts first though… but I am leaning towards the 3rd pet.

And I met up with Seabury again in the lovely Angler’s HQ building:

And then bought myself this dress which got rid of most of my money:

Of course, I made sure to dye it pink (well, red… I wonder if there are pink flowers?):

I had bought a flower hairpin, but I’m not too fond of the purple-ish pink color so I made it white:

And that’s it for today’s summary! Remember, if you want to see the full details, feel free to check out the Youtube videos!

Fantasy Life: License Extravaganza

So, I woke up early and then proceeded to wait for the mail in anticipation for the game to arrive (along with Pokemon Art Academy). It arrived earlier than expected which was nice and then it was immediately time to start playing! I had one important goal in mind: Get all the licenses. That was my first goal and most other things were secondary. If you don’t feel like reading, feel free to watch my Fantasy Life journey instead.

Of course, I still had a bit to do before I even picked my life! I have to say, I really enjoyed the character options. There’s so many to choose from. I would say my only issue was that the character limit is only six. I ended up just using Jen because I never really liked Jenny and I really wanted to play so I didn’t want to spend time thinking of something creative.

Regardless, once I finished making my character, it was time to play!:

And that letter would lead us to our destiny of licenses.

Also, this game is full of fountains and waterfalls which is always awesome:

After sightseeing and talking to as many people as I could, I headed to the guild office and finally picked my first Life–Wizard!:

It was then off to see the King. With some help from a Butterfly (who is also named Butterfly in the North American version…) who I happened to save earlier, we convinced the guards to let us in:

I REALLY hope the King’s body thing is explained at some point:

Like I originally thought it was like a Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii thing, but the lady next to him is his wife and he has a daughter who’s at least the same age as the character. Moving on, I love his wife’s dress and I really hope we can get that outfit.

I also found the house I want to get in the main town:

Unfortunately, it’s apparently not available until after you beat the story :(

Getting back to my Wizardingness, I had my first big job to do–help defeat a Spooky. So, I headed to the Chapel to wait:

I have to say, the Wizard quest felt the longest to me. Everything else felt much shorter.

And the Spooky was honestly kind of cute:

I also managed to unlock my very first Bliss Bonus:

I’ll admit, I haven’t been very smart with my Bliss Bonuses. I have yet to upgrade my story/inventory at all and I REALLY need to do that. I’m not sure which I will do first, but I know I need to upgrade them…

I then decided to spend some time entering Passwords (WARNING: Contains spoilers for certain story elements):

I had been hoping to wear a cute outfit, but it requires level 20 and thus, it was all for naught. I did get some cute furniture items though:

Plus a lot of money from items I sold that I didn’t care for.

After that, I decided to work on Butterfly’s Bliss quests a bit because I really wanted more Bliss Bonuses. The General Store is adorable:

And really should sell more teddy bears. The clerk also gave us this adorable potion:

And I got my first pet–Cherri the Pink Bird:

With that done and my Wizard license set, I started my next license quest–Tailoring:

It went really quickly and I had a lot of fun with it.

Plus more Bliss Bonus:

I also rented a horse for fun–sadly, it’ll be a while before I can own one:

Spoiler: I’m going to get a White one and name her Snowball (and if that is too long, I will name her Snowy and be sad)

Then, it was time for the life of an Alchemist!:

…with a teacher who was a bit too explosive happy:

Thankfully, it was another quick go.

With that done, it was time for my first gathering class–Mining!:

Or what I’d like to call, the journey of being taunted by people with better ponytails than I:


While I unlocked other hairstyles and bought the DLC, it seems Angela’s and Ruby’s are not part of the selection. I don’t know if you can further unlock more hairstyles, but I’m kind of down a bit it. Angela’s bangs are much better than the hair I have now (which you’ll see later) and I really like Ruby’s longer ponytail/bangs even if it isn’t as wavy overall.

After the Taunting Ponytail Adventure Mining License Journey, it was time for life as an Angler:

Ignoring the fish hat, this outfit is kind of adorable. Just look at her–all wishful and fishy:

I actually enjoyed fishing a lot. I would say the only issue is some fish can take forever, but I’m guessing as you get better rods/skills, that will probably no longer be an issue.

It was then off to be a Woodcutter which gave me a cute robe:

I even got to meet another Spirit (You meet 4 as a Wizard):

And I put together my first outfit:

I also managed to get my very first bounty boxes!:

And had our first boss-story fight:

We saved the cute Pink Dragon <3

And I finally got new hair:

Though, the bangs bug me a bit:

I then decided to revamp my room a bit:

And continued my license journey by starting my Life as a Cook:

The Cook story was pretty cute honestly.

It also went really fast.

After that, it was officially time for the Lives I personally don’t care much about. Thankfully, none of them took long, but I really don’t have much to say about them so just enjoy some pictures:



The Hunter did have that moment where a dog joined your party though so that was pretty awesome. Lucky was very helpful. Blacksmith was also okay–just it mostly goes with the classes I don’t care for.

With that, I earned all 12 licenses and also officially started Chapter 2 of the story. Where that will lead we will find out later today (since now it’s past 2AM because I’ve been writing this for quite a while after I finished playing).

I also still have various other quests left:
A Shady Request – 5 Sleep Powder
The Bug Boy 1 – Royal Grasshopper
Drive Away the Bandits – 10 Bandits
Bronze Gaites – 1 Good-Quality Bronze Shield
Apples for Pom – 10 Castele Apples
Beret Nice – Good Quality Highland Beret
Huntin’ Wadishys – 10 Radishys
Plushy Iron Hammer – Good-Quality Iron Hammer
Eeels for Dinner – 3 Plains Eels
Gimme More Milk – 3 Extra Creamy Milk
Rice, Please – 15 Port Rice
More Chickie Treats – 5 Mountain Mushrooms
Castellian Veggies, Please – Superior Boiled Veggies
Gimme Mutton – Superior Roast Mutton
Honey for Pancake Paul 2 – 4 Plateau Honey

So hopefully I will have time to work on many of them later!

Fantasy Life is almost here!

So, as you probably know, I’m excited for Fantasy Life and it will be out very soon. While I may not be downloading it (and thus, won’t get it until most likely the afternoon of this upcoming Friday), I am still anticipating the game quite a bit! And thus, it was finally time to finish setting up the playthrough page for the game.

This will be the first entry in the tag and just explain some stuff. For one, I will be streaming the game pretty much as long as I’m playing like my early Animal Crossing days. I do not yet know how often I will update here per day, but it’ll mostly be a summary. If you want to see the full day-to-day adventures, you will be able to watch the videos on Youtube or watch live on Twitch while I’m streaming.

I want to say maybe once a week, but it could be more often or less often depending on how much I need to say to begin with. Regardless, you’ll be able to see a quick stat summary, my current plans/order of things, and a random photo that picks from any I’ve taken in the game. I hope you’ll look forward to it!

As for a review, I do plan to write one :) Though, I can’t say for sure when it’ll be up.

Let’s talk about dolls~

Now, if you’ve been reading this for a while, you’ve probably seen two of my hobbies–Baking/Cooking and Playing Video Games. The latter especially as there’s just more to say about it. However, I also really enjoy Collecting. I have many collections such as a Souvenir Penny Collection, Coin Collection, Seashell Collection, Rock Collection, various Plushie Collections (Such as Beanie Babies), Sand in a Bottle Collection, Card Collections, and the subject of this entry, a Doll Collection.

I’ve had all kinds of dolls since I was younger starting with Barbie Dolls and Porcelain Dolls I received as gifts. To this day, all my Porcelain Dolls are still in boxes on display. I haven’t played with any of my Barbie Dolls in years, but I still have several including my favorites which was a Barbie with sparkly gold hair I affectionately named Goldie and one I made through a very old Create Your Own Barbie opportunity they did (They have something similar now, but it’s not as customizeable). It gave me the opportunity to have a dark brown haired/brown eyed doll with light skin–something that was and still can be pretty uncommon. Usually, if you managed to even find a brown hair/brown eyed doll, they would normally have tan or dark skin. Similarly, if you somehow did see light skin, they would have hazel or green eyes and sometimes even blue. So for me, that was really special and I was glad I managed to make two before it was taken offline. I still have both, though, they are currently being kept in storage.

One of my very first “expensive” dolls though was an American Girl Doll. I had Samantha who had a very large effect on me. She was everything I wanted to be from her style to her personality. She’s probably the closest to a role model I had. You can learn more about Samantha here.
meetsamantha
Her Christmas Teddy Bear and Music Box are still some of my favorite things.

Eventually, a friend of mine, Kilani, showed me Pullip dolls. I had only previously seen Blythes which I wasn’t a fan of and dolls like Volks which are pretty pricey and also just didn’t have any that caught my attention. I had debated on getting one for a long time and eventually was won over by Sacralita:
seria
I changed her outfit from default, though, since Sacralita was the very first Pullip I adored I did get another to keep in her normal outfit:
39

We also each got a smaller Azone Doll–a Cute Secret Wonderland Chiika.
secretwonderland
I got the pink haired one while she had gotten the other. I still remember us chatting anxiously while waiting for the sale to go up. Sadly, she is currently up in my old room–I’d love to get her with many of my other dolls soon :(

I ended up collecting Pullips for quite a while, but haven’t bought a new one in a long time choosing to only buy dolls if I liked them completely as is–that means no new eyes/hair/wig/outfit. Though, I am really tempted to try and get the Princess Serenity Pullip (I’m also still debating on the Heiwa Dal and Favorite Ribbon Pullip). Moving back to those I have, I ended up getting quite a lot. I don’t fully regret purchasing so many, but I do regret not being more picky with them and have been debating on selling some of the ones I’m not as attached to. Here are just a few of my favorite Pullips (besides Sacralita) I’ve gotten over the years:
pullipcollage
(You’ll notice some of these are customs such as the holiday-spirited Noella I bought off Yahoo!Japan Auctions and the fantastic Fanatique by the very talented Requiemart–she also made me this lovely MLP, Cascade):
cascadepony

As I lessened down with Pullips, a few of my friends who had collected Pullips started collecting Ball-jointed Dolls. They were pricey and having already started being much more picky, I didn’t think too much again. That was until I stumbled upon LittleFee Luna. I instantly fell in love with her design and color scheme, but she had already sold out quite a while ago. So, I made buying threads and eventually found a seller who sold her even cheaper than her original price:
littlefeeluna
She was my very first BJD and has sat on my desk since.

My second was Emilia, an Iplehouse Doll:
emilia
I managed to get her with her full set from someone else, also lower than her price which was nice. Sadly, she did not come with her flowers for her hair. I’m still hoping I’ll find them for sale at some point.

And finally, today and the entire reason I started this entry, Mirai, my Smart Doll arrived today. A friend has been encouraging me quite a bit to pick it up and as a bit of an early gift from my family, I managed to get her during the recent order opening. I am very happy she is finally here and all dressed up in her new outfit:
yaysheshere
I haven’t decided yet if I will keep her wig as is or not, but she still looks adorable. <3

As for future dolls... besides the Pullips I mentioned earlier in the entry, the two BJDs I have been keeping an eye out on are Irene and Sophia… Regardless, they are a long long long long long way off.

Tomodachi Life: SpotPass, StreetPass, and Other Events

So, I know I mentioned another StreetPass entry, but I didn’t really get any StreetPass beyond Tomodachi Life. I did “beat” Mii Force, but the ending wasn’t very special and I still have 6 tickets I need to earn so… But regardless, this is all about Tomodachi Life and to start, it’s the 15th which means we’ve received a new item through SpotPass today!:

Pumpkin Suits! Continuing the Halloween trend for the month. It’s available in Yellow, Red, and Pink (Which just changes the stripe–I was hoping for other Pumpkin colors!) and costs $100.

Besides that, as I mentioned we’ve gotten a few more StreetPass Travelers! And not just that, but this also caused many of Pink Sea Island’s travelers to revisit. But yes, we’ll talk about those revisits later… for now, it’s time to go over the travelers from other Islands. I was beyond excited as each boat showed up:


It would be a while, but I did my best to wait for everyone to get to their tent. I was pretty excited with the second group I managed to get though as each happened to be doing something in their tent for once:

Usually the Miis would just be sitting or lying in their tent so I was really excited to see them doing something else. Trinity was especially adorable with her teddy bear (WHY IS THERE NO TEDDY BEAR I CAN GIVE MY MII. WHY. AND WHY MUST IT BE LIMITED TO JUST 8 T~T). Even more so when she went to sleep and her Teddy Bear received a sleeping bag too:

I hope some of my Travelers do that.

That wasn’t the only thing this set of campers showed me though. Besides getting a few more dishes:

Irene asked if she could tell Reese about her adventures. I said yes and it was a pretty neat conversation:


Irene also left me a letter (with a Copper coin!) before she headed to the pier:

The next set of Campers didn’t do anything new, but still received a letter from one of them with another Copper Coin:

Now I just need the Tissue Package and I will finally have all the Treasures T~T

Collage of Photos the travelers took:


I’m really happy I managed to get several new dishes along with several new outfits (though, most were new colors) such as Nike’s new outfit:

(Her QR code has been updated!)

And Emi’s:

Also, please enjoy my Mii talking about some of the dishes I managed to get:


(Yes, Feta is that good)

Now that we’re done talking about StreetPass, let’s talk about some of the other events that have been happening. First of all, My Look-a-like decided to set up Mimi and Kendall together:



Obviously, it worked!

Similarly, Ciel finally managed to get Cyrus and Reese together:

Of course, not everyone needing Match making. Ran decided to ask Brock out:

He said yes!

Shortly after though, Professor Oak tried to ask Ran out:

He was rejected though.

Reese, feeling bad for Professor Oak, decided to try to set him up with Setsuna:

It worked!

Brock tried to set up Jenny and Neil, but it didn’t work out:

Plus more children were born:

We also sent off more kids to travel:

And even let others move into the apartments:

We also received many letters from those who have been traveling with photos of them on new islands:



And of course, some of them visiting in person!:


Before we get to the final sections of today’s update, you may have noticed the change in color of the grass in some pictures. Tomodachi Life’s season has updated for Fall changing both the grass and trees:

It really is quite pretty.

Random news reports:


And finally, while not completely Tomodachi Life-related, enjoy these lovely pictures of my Mii hanging out on the Tomodachi Life stage in Super Smash Brothers for the 3DS:

Note: I received the game early from Nintendo. Thank you, Nintendo! :D If you are interested in Tomodachi Life, you may want to look into picking it up!

And on top of that news, Trainer Customization will not be returning :(

Yep. You heard correctly. You can read more on that here along with reasons as to why. And I’ll be honest, I really disagree with those reasons.

I understand wanting to give each Region its own identity, but I feel regions already do in many other ways such as actual different towns, different gym leaders, different trainer appearances, different versions of similar features (IE: Battle Frontier, Battle Subway, Battle Maison).

Taking away features doesn’t make it so someone looks at a region and considers it more special–it causes people to feel like they’ve lost something.

And it’s not like we’ve never had trainer customization before–it was first in Pokemon Battle Revolution. While yes, this was the first time in the main games, it’s still not an entirely new feature in the Pokemon games.

Secret Bases were also brought up as something “unique”/special to Hoenn, but we received them in a similar way with the Underground in Generation 4 which already defeats that. Gen 4 also had contests like Gen 3. Gen 2’s remakes had Pokemon following you again like in Yellow. It’s not like features have not come back in different generations. And I would love to see Secret Bases in every game just like I was hoping Trainer Customization would’ve been a stable.

May is one of my least favorite trainer appearances personally–same goes for Crystal. I love Dawn’s outfits, I love White’s/Hilda’s outfit, I also find Mei’s/Rosa’s pretty cute and even Serena’s default was nice, but I just didn’t care for the first two female looks we received. I probably liked May’s first outfit the best, but I never cared for Emerald or how it looks in these remakes. And I’m really disappointed with the contest outfit. So I was SO excited for the idea of customization returning with contests as that could mean so many pretty outfits that we could possibly switch with for the contests and even to wear out and about only now, this pretty much confirms that won’t happen.

And to remove this feature in a game where contests are returning and the nice outfits shown in Gen 4 and just looking at the Anime and even bringing outfits into this game? That seems like such a huge huge huge oversight.

And considering the big ways we’ll be able to share a customized room, to remove the other half of it with customized trainers? I mean, battles will go right back to some default trainer versus another and it’s just disappointing.

I don’t really want to go more into it, but I can’t even put into words just how disappointing this is. Trainer customization felt like such a big thing in the main games because it really made you feel like a trainer–getting to put yourself truly in as you play with your Pokemon in PokemonAmie (Which IS returning in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire–same for Super Training and the Passerby System) and that has just been taken away.

A small part of me wants to still hope maybe they’ll change their minds or patch it or something, but I know at this point I’d just be kidding myself. I just can’t say enough how disappointed I am. This is probably the worst removal of a feature since Secret Bases in the first place.

Pokemon ORAS Demo & More Details Revealed

So, as many of you may know, I have been anxiously awaiting for news on the North American demo and today we finally got some. Unfortunately, according to the press release, the codes will not be sent out until the 21st. While this gives time for people to sign up (or enable mail from Pokemon.com), I was still hoping they would have started sending them out now with them being given out until the 21st or even the end of the month…

  • Pokémon fans who have a Pokémon Trainer Club account and have opted to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter will receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version when the newsletter is emailed to them on October 21. Get a Pokémon Trainer Club account at no cost at Pokemon.com by October 19 to receive the October 21 newsletter and Special Demo Version serial code. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are sold separately beginning November 21.
  • Knowing those in Japan and soon Europe as well will be already playing it while we’re still sitting here waiting is pretty discouraging, especially with screenshots being shown by those currently playing. Not to mention that there was the whole thing about playing every single day and we’ll have less days to play than everyone else. Will we still get the reward? Is it just a certain amount of “Must-play days”? We don’t know. All we can do is wait and while I’m happy we finally got news about our demo… the fact that we’ll be waiting even longer than everyone else is just super discouraging. At the very least, if you do miss the newsletter, there will be another way to get the codes soon.

    I mean, just look at this video that was put up showing so many features too:

    And that flying just looks so much fun.
    SoarFix_Envol__berflieger_Ipervolo_UltravueloRGB0725_72dpi
    I’m just sad you can only really do it on Latias or Latios rather than any Pokemon you can fly with.

    Speaking of features, more details on the returning PokeNav–now the PokeNav Plus–was announced and I am beyond excited for the DexNav. Completing the Pokedex and earning badges have always been some of my favorite things (Plus any kind of customization) so that mode just looks amazing and I expect to use it quite a bit.

    naviFix0803_CMYK_72dpi

    I mean, just look at it in action:
    oct_p20_01_en

    All the PokeNav Plus features look great and I’m looking forward to what new things get added as well.

    StreetPass and Captain Toad

    Even though Nintendo doesn’t have a booth this year at New York Comic Con, I’ve still managed to get quite a lot of StreetPasses! And getting StreetPasses is always my favorite part of conventions <3

    Thanks to them, I've:
    1. Completed Monster Manor!:

    I absolutely love the music that plays once the curse ends in front of the Manor when it starts giving your stats and at the title screen now. It looks so pretty now too. Sad we never got our “employee’s” outfit though. It’s so cute… Now, the only game I have is Mii Force. Unfortunately, I’m just awful at it :/

    2. Finished my Puzzles!:

    3. Got Campers in Tomodachi Life!:

    Some pictures they took with residents:


    I even managed to get 2 new Special Dishes (Country-Fried Steak and Greek Salad–the 3rd item was another Chili Con Carne). I also did a few more things with them. If you give them a bathset, they actually take it outside!:

    This is also the first time I received a letter from one of the travelers after they left!:

    I did the same thing for each one, so I’m not sure why I just got one from her, but oh well. She gave me a gold coin.

    As for clothes, I technically got a lot of people, but only received a few new StreetPass items–a Phantom Outfit, a Starry Top-hat, and a Straw Cowboy Hat. Everything else ended up just being new colors. Hopefully I’ll get more travelers today.

    Finally, a Captain Toad Trailer was released yesterday and it’s made me even more excited:

    Very happy to see Toadette making an appearance too–I hope maybe there might be some multiplayer modes as well with her.

    Smash Brothers 3DS thoughts continued

    I realized my last post made it seem like I really disliked the game which really isn’t true. I am enjoying it a lot (even if it worries me everytime I close it by needing to restart…) so I wanted to talk about some of the things I’m enjoying:
    -I truly find most of the levels a lot of fun. The only one I do not care for is Reset Bomb Forest. I find the way it changes to be cruel (and depending on where you are standing, you could be stuck with dying) and the Meta Knight color scheme I use blends into the background.
    -And I want to just state that I don’t personally have any issues with details/playing the game on a normal 3DS -except- with that stage with the Meta Knight I prefer using.
    -Jigglypuff looks super cute in her ribbon.
    -Trophy Rush is a lot of fun even if it hurts for me to play after a while.

    In general, I do think it’s a good game. I’ve also been enjoying playing All Star mode with my fiancé–the fact that we get both trophies is really nice and it helps for when I may not be very good with a character while he is and vice versa. I wish we could do Classic Mode together too.

    While I’m still not fond of the Challenge System (SUCH AS THE EVILNESS OF PAGE 3), I do think some of the challenges have been fun. Except page 3’s. Page 3 sucks.

    I think this is also the first Smash where I’ve liked so many new characters. While they do not beat out my main characters (Kirby and Jigglypuff), there’s a lot more characters I enjoy playing this time around. I’m still a bit sad about certain color schemes (White Mage Robin being male only for example), but maybe we can get more in the future.

    I don’t except to finish all the challenges, but I’d like to at least get all the trophies. I did finish unlocking Mii stuff though so:

    I expected more outfits honestly, but I think they still look cute… I don’t really have a favorite type though. I think each one has good moves.

    I also finished Classic mode with everyone:

    Hoping to get All Star done soon.

    Finally, as I’m sure most know by now, the North America release date for Smash Brothers for the Wii U was announced and confirmed to be the rumored November 21st which I’d be more excited for if it wasn’t the same day the Pokemon remakes will be coming out. All on the same day, there will be:
    -Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire
    -Smash Brothers Wii U
    -Amiibo Figures
    -Gamecube Adapter

    At the moment, we’re planning to get both Pokemon games, the Gamecube Bundle, and 3 Amiibo figures to start–Link, Peach, and Kirby. Definitely want to get more later though @-@ Just not sure what to do about how crazy that day will be…
