I’ve been able to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a few weeks now, and while I am not as talented as friends who have the game and seem to master everything, I’ve found loads about it I’ve loved.
There are some gripes I have with the game – not many though! – but I am going to be a sook and complain about my hot takes and unpopular opinions below.
I haven’t made it a secret that I’m a huge Marvel fan on this blog or on social media. I have my favourite Avengers, way too many toys and things, but I’m actually a big DC fan too. And boy, DC fans are eating good next year.
I have never been pro or anti either one, one might do something better than the other while both carrying different tones and elements, but I have to freak out over the DC Fandome showcase we were given and what I’m looking forward to in 2021, DC’s year.
Picture this: you – a 1970s private investigator – have been sent to the fuck-all nowhere town, which is midst of a ball-shattering Canadian blizzard. Not a person in sight, not even the dude who hired you, yet you always feel like you’re being watched. Between the weather and fight to stay alive, you have to figure out the clues as to what the hell is happening around this town and why exactly you’ve been sent. Full of clues and supernatural elements, you along with your journal and busted car have to find your way around a weird little deserted town that will keep you guessing.
To say the past two weeks have been a shit-show (scientific term) would be a massive understatement. I am in the process of weening off one antidepressant and going onto another, with the added bonus of this whole “Christmas” thing in less than two weeks. While I’m usually very organised when it comes to Christmas shopping, this time around I was finding myself obsessively searching; spending two full days trawling the web for the best presents on a dollar allowance.
I realised quickly thought that I was obsessing and stressing. I couldn’t sit still to write or even watch a movie; my escapes wouldn’t let me escape!
