Today it’s the first Animal Crossing: New Horizons anniversary. To commemorate it, I want to share some screenshots that I’ve taken of the game, some streaming videos, and what I enjoy of the game.
Since I got the game, I played it a lot at the time. A lot of the things I did involved catching fish and bugs, visiting other people’s island, and having a relaxing time in the island.
Catching bugs and fish
This is something I do a lot, first, to try to complete the museum, and second, to get additional bells, which is the in-game currency. Fishing and catching bugs, combined with the beautiful art and music, makes for a very relaxing time while playing the game:
Visiting other islands
This is fun to do to spend some time with friends, especially during these COVID-19 times where one needs to take extra precautions. Luckily, COVID-19 doesn’t exist in the game, which is why we can freely visit other island and enjoy some high quality time.
The game bases its events in real time. This means that certain characters and events takes place on certain dates. Besides the events, you can also hold inaugurations when a construction is finished or something is accomplished.
Crafting and Reactions
Before you can craft something, you need to obtain receipts. Sometimes, your neighbors will give one when they are crafting something. Also, your neighbors can give you new reactions to use, which you can use at any time.
Your neighbors worry about you
If you don’t play the game for too long, your neighbors will start worrying about you.
Yes, I really didn’t played the game for some months, but now I’m back.
The following are the live streams I did when playing Animal Crossing:
And with this, I say goodbye for today. I hope you all enjoyed seeing the game screenshots and videos. See you next time!
Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a life simulation game for the Nintendo Switch where you live on an Island along other animals. The game is pretty great and is an excellent choice to spend some time relaxing. Everything from the crafting to the music is all well done.
I brought this game last year, but never published the unboxing photos I took. This is why today, I’m sharing them, as a pre-anniversary celebration.
As colorful as the game is, so is the box, as we can see here:
Crafting is the main point of the game. You can craft stuff for yourself, or to decorate your island. This is why the crafting is featured in the box art.
The back gives us some description of the main points of the game. Along with crafting, the game uses real time clock, meaning that you get to experience every season of the year. It’s also day and night in the game, and things that you can do and collect also depends on time.
The box interior showcases the game travel feature, where you can go to Dodo Airlines in the game to travel to a friend’s island.
The game cart is very simple. In fact, it just have the logos and that’s it.
Inserted in the switch, we have a similar graphic to the game box art.
But before I could play it, I had to download the software update.
Overall, it’s been a great addition to the Animal Crossing family and one that enhances the game experience even more.

Unboxing Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time for Nintendo Switch
On Friday, February 12, I got the new Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game for the Nintendo Switch. For this release, Nintendo also released 2 new Amiibo figures, the Cat Mario and Cat Peach Amiibo. We’ll see the game box and cart as well as the Amiibo in this post.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
The game box art is almost identical to the box art of the Wii U game, but it features the graphics for the Bowser’s Fury mode:
Here’s the back of the box:
Opening the box, we see a huge graphic from the Bowser’s Fury mode:
Let’s take a close look at the game cart:

Before playing the Nintendo Switch game, I’ll play the Wii U version, since I still haven’t played it.
Super Mario 3D All Stars: Game Unboxing + Some Super Mario 64 content
Today, I’ll share some photos of the Super Mario 3D All Stars box and game cart. Also, I’ll share some game images and videos of the Super Mario 64 games below.
I got this game on release date and began playing it casually. I haven’t yet played Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy, which is why this post will show only content of Super Mario 64.
Let’s begin with the game box:
The game box art contains images of all 3 games.
Here’s the back:
It contains a brief description of the game content.
Now, let’s see how it looks inside:
It shows some great graphics inside. We can also see the game cart. Let’s take a closer look into it:
And removed from the box:
Inserted into the Nintendo Switch system, this is the graphics we see:
Super Mario 64 Screenshots and Videos
I’ve just played Super Mario 64. Overall, I like how the game looks, but I struggle with the controls. My problem is that the camera controls sometimes gets in the way of the game, but overall, I’m very pleased with the game presentation on the system. Below, you can see some images and videos of the game, taken with the Switch Screenshot button.
I’ll play the other 2 games later. In reality, I’ve never actually played them in their original systems, so that will be a new adventure for me.
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory Nintendo Switch unboxing
Today, we’ll see some photos of the case and game card of the new Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory game for the Nintendo Switch.
We’ll start with the game case exterior:
Opening the case, we just see some text and the game card itself:
And now, let’s take a closer look at the game card:
Music Rhythm games are one of my favorites to play, and this is no exception. While I haven’t played most Kingdom Hearts game, my first one was Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for the Gameboy Advance. Then, I played the Nintendo DS games but haven’t played the PS3/PS4 games as I don’t own one and it’s unlikely I’ll get one either. Either way, I’m enjoying this game so far.
Unboxing Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Double Pack
Today morning was very exciting! Since yesterday, when I heard of today’s Pokémon Direct, I said myself that we would get either a core Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch or the next iteration of the new Pokémon Let’s Go series. Today, we got a whole new generation of Pokémon.
What I saw in the trailer is really good. The starter Pokémon looks really nice! It will be a difficult decision to choose one of them. Also, the Galar region looks nice but I have my questions. It may have been just me, but I feel like there’s not enough cities. Maybe we just got a teaser map and they are still working on arranging the cities and other routes.
What’s most interesting to me is the game names. Why is it called Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield? Will we see some medieval-themed rival in this game? Fighting with swords? We’ll just have to see.
We should be hearing more about these games during the year until it is released (Maybe at E3?). In the meantime, you can preorder the games on Amazon at the following links:
