A true nightmare

A couple of days ago, one of my worst nightmares came true.

Most of you know by now that I have a couple towns. 13 to be exact(I even have a 14th copy!). Right now however, I don’t even have half of that anymore.

I was going on ACNL a couple days ago, like usual, to check up on all my towns, as I normally do. You know, to see if Katrina’s in any of my towns, if Gracie is there, to check up on all the shops, talking to villagers.., the usual.

I figured I’d check up on my stream towns first, because they’re the ones that are the quickest to go through. I do most of the town work and chores in my stream towns.., well, on stream.

When I started the game and was about to enter my town however, I was told the game data had corrupted and that in order to play the game, the corrupted data would be deleted. So I quit the game, and went on google to check out my problem. There were several solutions as to what I could do in order to get my town back, but nothing has worked so far.

I figured, okay, maybe if I try it on one of my other 3dses, but it was the same on 3 out of 4 of my 3dses. So I started panicking a little. Then I decided to check up on my other towns, because I still had 12 to go through. The first few I went through were fine, nothing happened, but then I went through more stream towns, and some of the offline towns that I’ve worked the most on, and they’ve all corrupted.

Now, I’m not about to say there’s something wrong with the cartridges, because I wouldn’t know where to start looking for a flaw on them, because I’ve treated all my cartridges  the same. Not to mention, you’d think the oldest cartridges would be the first to corrupt, but most of my oldest towns are perfectly fine. All the towns I have a Welcome Amiibo cartridge for, are all corrupt.

Except Paradise. I still have Paradise(which most of you know is a stream town).

I’ve lost my other 3 stream towns(Noots, Meow and Calm – the last being the one we’ve been working on over the last ACNL streams).

 

This has got me feeling very depressed and down, which is why I haven’t streamed a lot the last few days. I am going to continue with the game, because I love ACNL to bits.
It just sucks that this has happened. I’m not even sure how many bells I’ve lost now, or how many hours of gameplay I’ve lost(I can promise you it’s a LOT).

I still have a few towns who are pretty much maxed out on bells, and I still have several golden tool sets, some bushes, clovers etc, but.., I don’t know, I’m just feeling depressed.

All I can say now is be careful with your games, if there’s a way Nintendo could let us save our towns somehow, that would be great, because the only ways I could think of now, is by cheats and hacks, and that’s simply something I don’t intend on doing.

 

Long rant post again, hah. Love your faces, see you on stream again soon!

Random rants? #01

This post doesn’t really have much of a point, and it’s pretty out of the blue. I just.., I don’t know, I wanted to write it. I feel like I need to? Sort of like a diary post kind of thing for myself.

To a lot of you, this probably doesn’t really matter much, but I wanted to write it down for myself.

So I’ve played World of Warcraft for quite a few years – over 12 years to be exact. I’ve played since it first released here in Norway, in 2005. In those 12 years, I’ve barely had any breaks at all. The longest break I had, was about 5-6 months, when I went to a folk high school, where the internet was really bad(until me and a friend found a nice spot at school where the internet was great – sorry everyone else at school, we totally took advantage of the internet so all of you had no chance of doing ANYTHING online!).
I’ve had a few breaks here and there, but nothing that has lasted for a long time – I seem to ALWAYS have come back to the game.

I’ve been thinking about taking a major break from the game for a long time, because it’s been so.., boring? Not necessarily boring, but I haven’t found anything that has brought me any joy anymore. A lot of friends have quit, some have come back, I know I can always find new people to play with. I guess I just don’t feel like putting in the effort I used to?

I’ve gone from big bad ass hard core player to the most casual of casuals haha.

I guess what I wanted with this post, was to.., well, just to rant and write a “poor” excuse for myself as to why I’m quitting World of Warcraft.
This time I’m quitting it. Uninstalling, removing it entirely from my computer, so I don’t have the usual fallback. Maybe I’ll come back to a future expansion pack, who knows? For now, I know I don’t want to play the game. It’s become a chore to have to log on every day in order to make sure I don’t miss ANYTHING.

 

Titled this as #01, because who knows, maybe I’ll have random rants about random things later too?

500 followers!?

I had a goal when I started streaming after my break this summer, and that goal was to try and reach 500 followers before my birthday, which was on September 7th.

I managed to reach that goal on September 6th, thanks to you guys.

There were so many hosts, tons of bits flying around, subscribers and all of a sudden.., we had follower number 500.

I barely slept that night and managed to oversleep and also get to school late(it went alright, didn’t get any absence or anything from my teacher).

I’m overwhelmed by all the love and support in our community. It’s amazing, and I love it and I love you guys.

When I started streaming I had big dreams and ideas of what I wanted to do with my stream, but now that’s it’s almost been a year, a lot of that has changed, and I’m more insecure about the stream and I’m not entirely sure where we’re going.
I’ve learned quite a lot this past year when it comes to streaming, and I can’t wait to learn more in the years to come.

I wanted to get partnered soon, but I’ve learned that partnership is a dream for the future, and right now all I want to do, is have fun with you guys. Whether it’s raging because annoying villagers ruin our path in our ACNL towns, raging because I can’t hit all the notes in Stepmania or just enjoying Stardew Valley(to name a few games).

I have a giveaway in the making for the 500 follower goal. When it’s going to be, I can’t say, and I don’t want to promise a giveaway that I have not yet planned 100%.

I want to be able to have as many of the streams followers be able to enter, because I think it’s only fair more people get a chance to enter.
When I’ve planned it out properly, I’ll get back to it and let you guys know about it!

Anyway, I want to thank you all again from the bottom of my heart, I can’t wait to have more streams with you guys and have fun and laugh and just have a great time.

Nintendo Direct

Okay, so this is a pretty fresh post right after the Nintendo Direct today.

First of; I didn’t know I needed so many games in my life. A lot of the games that were announced were not really interesting to me to begin with, but now I’m super interested and wanting to try them out. I love Nintendo for this very reason, they always find ways to get you to try games that are not really a style you usually like playing, and they open up a whole new market for you.

I am super excited about the new Pokémon games, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon!
That new Lycanroc form is AWESOME. Now I’m considering pre-ordering it a little more, honestly.

ALSO, I’m excited for Skyrim, Dragon Quest, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Doom, etc etc etc.

Soooo many awesome titles are going to be released for the 2DS/3DS systems and the Switch this year, how are we going to be able to keep up with Nintendo?
Sometimes, it feels like they’re basically pulling out all the big guns now, and then in a year or two, they’ll have nothing left? At the same time, however, I think I can confidently say that there’ll definitely be fun and exciting things even then.

It’s Nintendo after all!

The new 2ds xl looks so pretty, and I’m in love with the pokéball version of it! Plus that pretty carrycase for the Switch with the new Mario Odyssey art!? YES PLEASE!

 

I’m so excited right now, I can hardly contain myself haha. Even if I’m sitting here looking dead serious while writing this. ALL. THIS. EXCITEMENT! YAY!

Here’s the Nintendo Direct if you didn’t get to watch it “live”!
