Coffee & Video Games

It never seems as though I have enough time in my day to clean, raise children, work, eat, and game... Seriously.
I miss the old days on my non-stop gaming ventures, where I could pop in one of my many Legend of Zelda titles and play endlessly, until my fingers grow numb and I cannot feel the controls and longer! Now when I get a chance to game, I feel torn between a good and much needed nap, or playing a video game. To most mothers out there, their answer would be, "Take the nap, duh"...well, my dear readers...I am not that typical mom. I hold my games very dear, and they are one of the main things that keep me sane. While 'normal' people of the world turn to meds and alcohol to cope with the world around them, I play a video game. Call me immature, or childish if you will, but I believe my methods are a bit healthier than drinking or smoking or popping pills.
Anyways, I digress...
At the moment I have so many games that remain unfinished. I just keep getting games, and playing them all. I like variety, it's hard for me to play the same game over and over...I have to switch off from time to time. The only games that I can literally get lost in, to where 1 hour of playing turns into 5 or 6 hours of gaming are games such as The Sims, Harvest Moon, and Animal Crossing. I love those games. When I want to relax, those are what I play. Those and Skyrim...I adore Skyrim. Just walking throughout the game and taking in the beautiful graphics of the world surrounding me brings me peace.
When I'm raging, upset or angry, I got to fighting games or Resident Evil...What better way to cope with anger than to shoot zombies, or kick another players ass?!
And then there are those days I'm feeling nostalgic, and missing my childhood and everything I loved about it...that being video games. That's when I play all of my old Legend of Zelda games and Mario games. Perhaps I may even bust out some Super Metroid, or Altered Beast!
I love my video games, and I couldn't nor would I ever trade them for anything. I can't quit my games just as I can't quit drinking coffee...Coffee and video games, that is what keeps this mommy and video games.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, More Addicting Than Drugs!!

Ever since I finally got my hands on Animal crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS, I haven't been able to quit...
Animal Crossing for the 3DS was one of those games that I just couldn't wait for it to come out. Unfortunately, funds didn't allow me to get it the day of it's release, June 6th of this year. Finally, on July 1st I was able to pick up this lovely little bundle of joy.
The last AC game that I had played prior to AC:NL was the AC game for the Nintendo GameCube. I cannot begin to tell you how many hours of joy that damned game gave me. I'm a huge fan of games like Harvest Moon and the Sims, so this game was right up my alley.
I have yet to be disappointed with AC:NL. Everyday, something new happens, or someone new moves into my little town. Honestly, the one and only disappointment I've had thus far is the lack of friends to play with on the game and have come visit my towns, and allow me to visit theirs. At the end of this blog I will post my friend code, any of you who wish to play with me, comment you friend code below, and I will add you in a heart-beat! Yay for visitors who may or may not grace my tiny town of UnRealm with their awesomeness!!!
For those of you who have not purchased this game and is still playing around with the idea...
If you are a fan of the franchise, I promise you won't get let down. Play it, tell me what you think! :D
