Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition

You guys voted for today’s post over on my Twitter account, so I’m being a good blogger and bringing it to you today! πŸ˜€ I did also mention in my wish list for November that I had bought this too.. πŸ˜›

I decided recently that it would be a good idea to order my own Switch, whether it be the original or the Switch Lite due to Pokemon Sword and Shield coming out, as well as mine and Dane’s upcoming Japan holiday.

I settled on a Switch Lite, especially the limited edition Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta one! If there is one thing I disliked about the Switch Lite’s when they were released in September is the three colours they came out with. Yellow, turquoise and grey. YUCK! Why not a purple, neon green or red, for example?

So when I saw that the Pokemon edition was grey, cyan and magenta I knew I had found the Switch I was after! I didn’t really want to go for a Switch as me and Dane already own one (it’s his!) which would be sort of pointless. So the Switch Lite was just a better option for me!

I am so excited for so many Switch game releases, including Pokemon Sword and ShieldΒ on Friday andΒ Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March 2020.

I already plan to take my Switch Lite with me to Japan and (as sad as it sounds) to work some days for lunchtimes when I want to play Pokemon or Animal Crossing.

So, I’m going to show off what the Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition looks like! You may be thinking about picking this up yourself, or just want to know what a Switch Lite is like in comparison to the Switch.

I hope you enjoy this post today! It won’t be anything special, but I know you guys wanted me to write about it… So I am! πŸ˜€

First of all the box it comes in! It’s nothing special but shows on both the front and back what the Switch Lite will look like, both on the front and back. In the box you get your Switch Lite console, as well as a charger. The 3DS never came with a charger, so I’m really pleased that Nintendo learnt from their past mistakes and made sure to supply one with the Switch Lite.

Apart from this, there isn’t much to the box at all! However, the Switch Lite itself is gorgeous, in so many ways.

The Switch Lite is amazing! It’s gorgeous to look at, feels good in the hands (both weight and feel) and is a perfect handheld console.

It’s a light grey colour with accents of both white, cyan and magenta. The cyan and magenta were chosen after the names of the two new legendary Pokemon – Zacian (sword) and Zamazenta (shield). Cyan is blue, magenta is pink. I didn’t really think of this until the Switch Lite arrived on Friday. The cyan and magenta work really well with the light grey colour of the Switch Lite overall and if anything, makes it pop!

A D-Pad has now been added to the left hand side of the Switch Lite, which used to be 4 buttons previously on the Switch. This is the only noticeable thing in all honestly.

Something else I noticed is how much better the ZL and ZR buttons feel on the Switch Lite in comparison to the Switch. They just feel firmer and that little bit more satisfying to press… I hope this makes sense! πŸ˜›

Another thing, I don’t know if it’s because my Switch Lite is new, but I’m struggling at the moment to open both the game card slot at the top and the microSD slot at the bottom. This being said, Dane didn’t have an issue when I asked for some help! I think I’m just being too sensitive with my Switch Lite, which makes sense.

On the back of the Switch Lite is a gorgeous design of both the wolf legendary Pokemon, Zacian (sword) and Zamazenta (shield). The outline of both the wolf designs is in a darker grey which pop out of the back of the Switch Lite! It looks amazing and works well with the light grey and white which is on show around them.

My one issue with this however is the fact they could have added each legendary on the same side as their matching colour, instead of the opposite… I know this sounds fussy but in my head it makes sense…

So that’s all I can think to talk about with my Switch Lite! I really love it and have played a little but of Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee!Β but I have been on the lookout for a small game to play between now and the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Before I wrap up this post I thought I would show off some comparison images of both the Switch and Switch Lite alongside one another!

So! That is the Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition! πŸ˜€

To buy this it will set you back Β£199.99, however I picked mine up from the official Nintendo UK store for Β£179.99 and I bet yourself wondering how I got it so cheap?

When me and Dane visited the Pokemon Center London (which you can read about here!) we popped upstairs to demo Pokemon Sword and ShieldΒ and we were given a new guidebook about Nintendo Switch, which included a 10% discount code for the Nintendo UK store! You can get one of your own by following this link! Fill in your information and you’ll receive one in the post. πŸ™‚

What do you guys think of the Switch Lite that I picked up? πŸ™‚ Do you own a Switch or Switch Lite? What games are your favourite and which are you excited for? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! πŸ™‚

October Wish List ’19

First of all, I REALLY struggled with this months wish list post. I feel like deep down there’s loads of shit I want but I just can’t think of it all to add to this months wish list.

I’ve dug as deep as I can possibly go and sadly this is the best I could come up with. Some of this stuff I do really want, but not that much that I have the urge to pick it up anytime soon. If anything, some of these items I’d actually like to receive as gifts for Christmas or birthday.

Alas, I needed to get my monthly post together… After all, it’s one of my favourites to write and put together! I love showing off all the crap I don’t need but want to buy. πŸ˜›

  • Snotgirl Volume 3 (link)

This is in fact something I’ve already pre-ordered! I love the Snotgirl comic series and I’ve waited about a year for the third volume to come out now. Crazy, right? Snotgirl is about a beauty blogger/influencer who looks gorgeous and perfect on the outside, but behind closed doors she suffers terrible allergies… Hence the name of the comic series. There’s some unexpected twists and turns however throughout the comic book series (which I won’t mention in case of spoilers) but honestly, as a blogger I love this series and recommend any bloggers out there to pick it up! πŸ˜€ I have to be honest though, the main character pisses me off, she’s such a bitch haha!

  • Hell Bunny Vixey Skirt (link)

I remember seeing a Hell Bunny advert on my Instagram and the dress the girl had on in the advert was gorgeous! I went onto the website in search of it… I had no luck! However, I did discover that Hell Bunny have a gorgeous new print out called “Vixey” which is mustard with foxes on! SOOOOO ME! They have a dress, as well and although I would love this, I do keep saying lately how I would like some more skirts in my wardrobe. I only have one and this alone is hardly worn… No reason why! I would like some more to add to my wardrobe, both for work and for personal. I’d love to team this up with a comfortable black jumper like the model is wearing, shirts and more! I might pick this up soon… It’d be nice to wear to Japan too with my Docs.

  • Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Nintendo Switch (link)

I would like this game (I even mentioned it last month on a post about games I’m excited for!) but I don’t know if I want itΒ yet. It’s not a game I’m rushing out to buy, but I’d purely want to pick it up to play with Dane over the Halloween season and especially if we spend Halloween at home. It would just be fun to play, you know? As I’m off around the time of Halloween it would be nice to stay in for the evening and play this… I’ll see how I feel!

  • Stuffed Fables – An Adventure Book Game (link)

This isn’t something I plan to buy anytime soon and if anything it’s a board game I would much rather receive as a Christmas or birthday present. I’ve eyed this game up since 2018, but only of late have I really invested into it, learning how to play and even looking at heading to Dicebox to give it a go with Dane for a date evening. FYI I just went onto the website so I could link here on my blog and I didn’t realise that there’s a photo of me, Dane and Amy from Writing into the Ether there! How cool eh?! That aside, I do want this game, but considering its hefty price tag I want to make sure I like it first before buying…

  • Pokemon Center London – ALL THE GOODIES!

I almost forgot about going to the Pokemon Centre in London when it opens. Holy shit, HOW DARE I!!! Yeah I plan to potentially pick up some goodies from here, but it all depends. If I can pick up items that I know are available in Japan, I’ll buy them here to save on bringing/sending them back during out holiday. If there are any exclusive items that I know will only be available during the pop up shop in London, IΒ may pick those up too. I won’t be picking up plushies, more stationary and household items. The Pokemon Centre are great for bringing out cookie tins/jars and I’ve only ever purchased (well gifted!) one from there, which I still love to this day. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for things like this. As of yet, no photos have leaked of any goods that will be for sale… Watch my blog though as I may post about it before I go!

That’s all the goodies I can think of sadly in regards to items I want to purchase this month. Honestly, I really struggled this month to come up with things for this list, but alas there areΒ some things here!

What item(s) do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments, including if you’re excited for the Pokemon Centre in London! Are you planning to go?

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for the weekend!

8 Games I’m Excited To Play

This evenings post is something I have wanted to write about for a while. I’ve been a gamer since the age of 5 and proud of that! My first console was a Super Nintendo Electronic System (SNES for short), which I still own to this day! Soon after that I was gifted a Game Boy, with a Tetris cartridge in. I loved that game so much, I never got bored of the games music either. πŸ˜›

There’s quite a lot of games coming out this year and even next year that I’m already excited about, so I thought I would share those here with you all! I talk a lot about gaming to be honest with you… In the “real world” if you will, but I feel like I never talk about gaming on my blog as much as I would like to. I want this to change and in the future I would even love to film myself playing some games to pop up on YouTube!

I know not a lot of people can afford games, or are interested enough in them to play them themselves and just want to see the story. I’m like that myself to be honest with you. I’m really interested in Cyberpunk 2077 BUT the reason it didn’t make it onto this list is because I doubt I will play it and instead I would watch my boyfriend Dane play it instead. I’ve done this time and time again with games and I have zero regrets.

Let’s start talking about the games! This post will be a long one. πŸ˜›

  • Untitled Goose Game – Out 20th September 2019 Nintendo Switch (link)

This is a game that I’m gutted I never got to play at EGX… I’ve seen people playing it and watched videos of trailers etc but as of yet I have not had the chance to try. I’m not going to lie, I had forgotten all about this game to be honest with you! It’s only from looking at my EGX post last year that I discovered it again. This is a goose simulator game, where your task is to annoy humans as much as possible! You get tasks you have to do to complete the level. I cannot believe this is out next week! I hope it is in the UK anyway… If so I will be buying it and spending my weekend playing it with Dane. Apparently this is available on Steam too, but I’ll be getting it for the Switch.

  • I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator – Out 24th September 2019 on Steam (link)

This game was announced this morning. I read about it on Twitter and I am already smitten with the idea of this game. I’m not like a massive KFC fan or anything, but the fact this is a dating sim game AND it is made by KFC makes me fucking laugh. It’s out in a couple of weeks (again, hopefully in the UK again as well) and not only do I plan on getting it, but I also plan on filming myself playing this game. I’m so damn excited for it, that I need to share the shits and giggles of playing it with others.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 – Out 31st October 2019 on Nintendo Switch (link to Smyths)

I’ve never played the Luigi’s Mansion games, but I’ve always wanted to! I never played the first game as it was around when I didn’t own a GameCube and I never played the second one because I didn’t play the first one! I’m pretty sure you don’t need to know the story to play this game. You’re Luigi (the better of the two plumber brothers, in my opinion!) with a Ghostbusters style kit and you’re in a haunted mansion. What more is there to explain, really? This isn’t a game I plan to rush out and buy the date it comes out, but if I found it at a decent price I’d definitely pick it up to play with Dane, as this is a two player game! I love that this is out over Halloween! Perfect timing to be honest with you. If a demo comes out I’ll definitely give that a go.

Pokemon Sword & Shield – Out 15th November 2019 on Nintendo Switch (link to Smyths here, here and here)

This game is already on pre-order and I’ve even bought both of the games, one for me and one for Dane! Of course for the time being I’ll be sharing Dane’s Switch (which we have been doing since he bought it in 2018) alongside him to play this game! I still don’t know which game I want to play yet, but for me it will entirely depend on which game has the best exclusives. I’m very much excited for these games though, as I have a feeling Pokemon have learnt from how lame Sun and Moon were and worked really hard to bring us better game play. Gyms are back and we also have some new features in Sword and Shield! I’m definitely swaying towards Sword though. πŸ™‚

Alchemic Cutie – Out 2019 on Steam (link to Steam)

At EGX last year I gave this game a go and I really enjoyed playing it! It reminds me of Animal Crossing with the game style and is a very relaxing game. You live on an island that is home of jellies, which you must go out and tame to make them your own. Then once you have these jellies you can participate in competitions with them and more! It was definitely a cool little game I played during EGX and one that stood out to me the most. There isn’t an official release date yet, but it just says 2019 at the moment. I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled on this, I really like relaxing games, especially after a long day at work.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Out 20th March 2020 on Nintendo Switch (link to Smyths)

I don’t think I need to say a whole lot about this game. Everyone knows how much I love Animal Crossing and just how damn excited I am for New Horizons to come out on the Switch. As of yet I haven’t actually pre-ordered the game, as I’m praying that Nintendo will release a Switch console (normal or the Lite) to coincide with the new game. Even if it doesn’t, I’ll still be happy, but either way I would still pick myself up a Switch of my own as I would like one for playing games like this. I know Dane is planning on picking up New Horizons too so that we can play this together. This looks like there’s so much more to do now than ever before and alongside the old school Animal Crossing, it also reminds me of Minecraft too, where you need to craft and build things. Honestly, I can’t stop thinking about this game and for the time being I am trying to keep my Animal Crossing cravings at bay with Pocket Camp! πŸ˜›

Calico: Magical Girls Running Cat CafΓ©s – Out April 2020 on Steam, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 (link to Kickstarter)

Next we have Calico, a game that I backed over on Kickstarter quite a while ago now! I stumbled across this game and after keeping my eyes on it for a couple of days, I decided to back! Again, as the game’s name explains, Calico is a game about two magical girls who are running cat cafes. This game reminds me of Animal Crossing, where you need to look after your cafe, whilst gathering cats and other animals from the woods nearby to host in your cafe. You can also create massive animals too who you can ride, including a red panda! I am so excited for this to come out in April and I although it is available on all consoles, I decided to get it on the Switch, as this is a console I have really loved playing my games on of late. πŸ™‚

To The Rescue! A Dog Shelter Simulator – Out August 2020 on Steam (link to KickstarterΒ and Steam)

Finally we have the last game on this post! I’ve actually backed this game on Kickstarter. It was one I wasn’t sure about and due to that ummed and ahhed for ages about it. I’m glad I backed it in the end however, as I think I would have regretted it. As the title of the game tells you, this is a dog shelter simulator game and as you would in a dog shelter, you look after any dogs that come in, try to get them adopted and more. There is even a point in the game where you may need to put a dog to sleep if it’s not adoptable, or been at the shelter too long. However, this is a an optional option for the game, so if you don’t want to do anything like this, you don’t have to. This game isn’t going to be out for just under a year now, which is crazy! It’ll be worth the wait though.

So those are all the games I am excited for for the remainder of 2019, as well as 2020! I didn’t quite realise how many games I’m hyped for until writing this post, as well as how many I have pre-ordered.

Which games are you excited for? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had a great week so far!

March Wish List ’19

At the time of writing this post I’m in a pretty bad mood… I ordered a game through Amazon Prime Now so that me and Dane could spend our evening playing it whilst we had dinner. It turned up… But with no game in the box. I made a complaint and to add insult to injury I couldn’t order another copy on Dane’s account. I’ve ordered it on mine now but Amazon need to book their ideas up! I know you guys love catch up/ranting posts from myself so I’ll be talking about Amazon Prime and all the shit I’ve had to endure the past 6 months!

Anyhoo, it’s a couple of days late but I’m here with my monthly wish list for March! The items on it seem so random, but when am I NEVER random, eh? πŸ˜›

  • Disturbia x Charles Peterson Kurt Long Sleeve T-Shirt (link)

I noticed this t-shirt for sale on my Facebook page through an advertisement and I KNEW I had to have it! Well, at least save it to my wish list for a rainy day. I’m a massive Nirvana fan so I’m a sucker for anything like this. I wear my Bershka sweater dress to death so I already know I’d wear this all the time with jeans or a skirt. It’s not cheap at over Β£30 but all the same, I may just treat myself to it soon. πŸ˜›

  • Weishiart Ninetales Pin (link)

I discovered this pin through the gorgeous Sarah over at Raiin Monkey and saved it to my wish list straight away! I love pin badges so much but in 2019 I am trying to not buy as many as I used to, purely for the fact I feel like I don’t have enough space on clothing or even time to wear them. This being said I would like to make an ita bag where I would be able to show off all my pin badges on the go! This pin badge is adorable though and I already know I’ll be ordering it in the future as it’s just too cute not to pick up!

  • Nendoroid Green (link)

I actually have this pre-ordered already through YY Kawaii as she’s one of the few who are stocking it at the moment. She also has him at a bargain price too, so it would have been silly not to take up such an awesome offer. Apart from Ash and Pikachu I don’t actually own any Pokemon Nendoroid’s yet so I’m rather excited to start a new money draining thing. πŸ˜›

  • Rogue & Wolf Midnight Mug (link)

Like the Kurt long sleeved t-shirt I discovered this mug through an advert on Facebook. I don’t remember if I’d ever visited the Rogue & Wolf website in the past or not but I’m so glad that I was shown this mug as it is GORGEOUS! I’d really love to buy it for myself for coffees at work, but it costs a lot… Β£20 to be exact which is stupidly overpriced in all fairness. I’ll keep my eyes peeled on it in the future however!

  • Killstar Dutchess Mourning Dress (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know I’m a massive Killstar fan and whilst I wanted to try and pick up more pieces from the brand throughout 2019, so far I haven’t just yet. I doubt I’ll pick anything up in March but I’ve seen this gorgeous dress that I would to own for when it’s spring and summer in the UK! I can only imagine I’ll pick this up in April as I’d love to wear this for Dane’s 30th birthday.

  • Yoshi’s Crafted World on Nintendo Switch (link)

This is something I’ve already pre-ordered and pretty damn excited for! If there’s one character game I love playing it’s always Yoshi. I’m not a massive Mario game fan when it comes to platform games I’ve just always preferred Yoshi and even Kirby. I gave the demo for Yoshi’s Crafted World a go and fell in love! It felt so relaxed to play but with some puzzles in there too! I don’t think I could ask for a better game to keep me engaged at the moment. So yeah I’ve pre-ordered it from Smyths which in turn has saved me Β£5.00 off of the game! Give the demo a go if you fancy picking up something new on the Switch. I’m so excited for this to come out at the end of the month.

So those are some of the items I am lusting after this month! Dane’s 30th is looming however, so I could do with starting to think about what I want to pick up for his birthday. πŸ™‚

Do you have any interesting items on your wish lists this month? I’d love to hear about them. πŸ™‚

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely day.

November Wish List ’18

Why am I bothering to write a wish list so close to Christmas? Meh because I can, I guess! πŸ˜›

I apologise if this list is full of waffle, I really do but meh I’m kind of struggling to come up with things I want to get with Christmas being around the corner. It’s also crazy to think the next wish list I write will be for December, I mean where has the year gone?!

I’ll try my best however with my wish list, some items might be pre orders I’ve made, where others might just be items I’m going to have to lust after until after Christmas. I have to be careful not to buy anything that Dane may have already bought me… πŸ˜›

  • WoodWick Sea Salt Caramel Candle – (link)

I LOVE WoodWick candles and although I rather like Yankee Candles, WoodWick are definitely my favourite. I love that they crackle as they burn and they’re also made out of soy wax so they’re actually better for you, breathing in wise. I’ve owned quite a few mini jars of the seat salt caramel scent and it is by far one of my favourites. I’d love to own the massive jar, but like Yankee Candle’s these aren’t the cheapest. So worth the money though! This may end up on a Christmas list or I might even buy it myself in the New Year.

  • Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee! & Poke Ball Plus – (link)

Oh man I am SO EXCITED for this game to come out this month! I’ve had it on preorder since it was announced back in May and I cannot believe in less than 2 weeks it will be out! Out of the two I preordered I decided I wanted Eevee, as having a little Eevee around with me sounds so adorable! I also ordered the bundle with the Poke Ball Plus with it too! I gave this game a go with the Poke Ball Plus at EGX in September and it was so good and it just made me so glad that I ordered it with the game. I’m especially excited to play this game with Dane, as it’s two player.

  • Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – (link)

I’ve been after a cuticle cream for the longest time and I’ve always heard nothing but good things about the Burt’s Bees one. I even tried it years ago when in store and it seemed like something good to pick up. I think I wanted it more for when I used to use gel nail polish all the time, which in turn I would like to get back into using again. This is something I’d love to pick up on a whim soon.

  • Persona 5 Morgana Sega Prize “Nesoberi” Lying Down Plush – (link)

This is something I actually have preordered from YY Kawaii and I honestly cannot wait to get it! I’ve been after a Morgana plush for the longest time, but the one I really want is either hard to find or costs a fucking bomb! This one is quite a nice size and will either sit on our bed or on my cuddle chair downstairs. Either way I am so excited to get this now. πŸ˜› I’ll definitely show it off on social media when I have him.

  • Himouto! Umaru-chan Vol. 3 – (link)

I LOVE this manga series and although this volume came out in October, I didn’t actually realise this until late in October so I made sure to order a copy ready for November time. I don’t plan to buy anymore manga after this as I’m unsure if Dane will buy me any for Christmas or my birthday. I do have some that I plan to add to my wish list in December mind, so keep eyes peeled for that next month if you’re interested.

  • Spyro Reignited Trilogy on PlayStation 4 – (link)

This is another game I’m really excited for this month! I was gutted back in September when it got pushed back but meh whatever, it’s going to be out in a couple of weeks now and it’s going to have been worth the wait for sure. I’m excited to play through all of the games and reminisce about all the hours, days and summer holidays spent playing these games. I plan to play the second Spyro game first as this was the first one I played back in the day.

  • Hell Bunny Full Moon Mini Dress – (link)

I’ve never owned a Hell Bunny dress myself, but I have always been intrigued by them. I saw a picture of this style floating around on Instagram and thought it looked really nice! I recently only managed to remember about it and ventured to the website to check it out. It’s not the cheapest dress in the world, not going to lie… But it’s definitely a dress I’m going to keep my eye on for the future as I would like to own something like this again, especially for both work and days off.

So those are what items I have on my wish list for this month! I know it’s nothing special and most of it I’ve got on preorder, but meh sadly a lot of stuff I don’t want to add to my list as I want those for next month.

Next month is December. That in itself is bloody scary!

What things do you guys have on your wish lists? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having an amazing weekend!

7 Games I’m Excited For

If there is one thing I would love to write more about on my blog, it’s games and how much I love gaming! I love it just as much as reading manga, watching anime and even writing on my blog! πŸ˜›

I really want to start writing more about games and I intend to write more about it all from now on, but please bear with me as it might take me a while to these kind of blog posts written.

For now though I will be writing about games I’m excited for in the future. I won’t just be talking about 2018, but I’ll be going into 2019 too as a couple of games I’ll be mentioning here won’t be out until then.

I really hope in advance that you like this post!

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man – Out September 7th 2018 on PlayStation 4

What a way to kick start this list! When this was first announced I was so nostalgic and excited! One of the first games I played fully on my PlayStation was Spider-Man and I loved it so much. Looking back I actually think it was this game that started off my love of superheroes and comic book characters. When E3 showed a trailer for it this year it just made me even more excited for it to come out. This is a game me and Dane have on pre-order already and we cannot wait to play it together. I’m not going to lie, I also wanted the limited edition Spider-Man PS4 that is coming out with the game too, but meh money. The game just looks impressive and I really hope it brings back the nostalgic feels of 10 year old Nat playing the first PlayStation Spider-Man game in her bedroom after school and on weekends.

  • Super Mario Party – Out October 5th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

If there’s a game me and Dane have always loved playing together on both the Nintendo Wii and the 3DS it’s the Super Mario Party games! They’re great for playing on lazy Sunday’s, at parties and just in general when you want to play a game but don’t have a clue what to play exactly. We’ve wanted some more games for the Switch but we’re a bit stumped as to what 2 player games we can get, but now we’ve noticed this is coming out we’ll probably get it around Christmas time!

  • LEGO DC Super-Villains – Out October 19th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

I’m a saddo, I love the LEGO games but who COULDN’T not love the LEGO games to be honest with you?! They’re really chilled to play, funny and great for anyone of any age to play. Since the first LEGO games came out I’ve played the majority of them. Over the years I’ve not bought them as much to play but I love specific ones such as Harry Potter (even though I’m not a massive HP fan!), Star Wars and LOTR’s and The Hobbit. I remember playing the first LEGO Batman game where you could play as both good and bad characters. I loved being able to play as a villain so the fact that we now have a game dedicated to it is pretty awesome! πŸ˜€ I’ll definitely be pre ordering this sooner rather than later!

Image taken from Game.co.uk

  • Spyro Reignited Trilogy – Out November 13th 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

I’m not going to lie, as I was starting to write this post yesterday I got an email from where I pre ordered this from letting me know that the release date has been pushed back. I’m gutted but it’s for decent reasons! Toys For Bob have stated that it won’t be perfect for their original release date (21st September 2018) so that’s the reason for pushing it back. I’m still gutted though, I was so excited to play this game on my day off work as well as for that weekend. Meh I guess I’ll just have to wait. It just kind of sucks that it’s out a couple of days before Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee. I can’t play two games at exactly the same time! πŸ˜› I loved the Spyro games growing up, especially Spyro 2 and I was super excited to play it! Alas I’ve got to wait now until November… Unless I dig out the original and give that a go.

Pokemon: Let's Go! Eevee! + Poke Ball Plus

  • Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! & Pokeball Plus – Out November 16th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

This is definitely the game I am most excited about on this list! I remember when the first trailer came out for it and Dane woke me up at 6am to show me the video on his phone! I was pissed off that he woke me up so early, but when I realised what it was for I was ecstatic! I love that there are 2 versions to choose from, but I knew I wanted Eevee. I pre ordered this as soon as I found it at a decent price for both the game and the Pokeball Plus! Smyths is the best place to get it from as you save Β£5.00 on your order if you go and collect in store. I’m glad it’s now a new story and really like that they’re following Pokemon Yellow. The thing I think that I love the most is that it’s two player so me and Dane can play the game together! It’s amazing that they brought this into the game and it’s something I’ve wanted the Pokemon games to have for the longest time. I honestly cannot wait to play this with Dane when it comes out! This is a game I’ll be talking about for ages on my blog when it’s out.

  • Persona 5: Dancing In Starlight – Out 4th December 2018 on PlayStation 4

YES THIS FINALLY HAS A RELEASE DATE! Ahem… Apologies… BUT I have been so on edge about when this game is coming out and I didn’t think it was going to be until 2019 to be honest with you. Thankfully it’ll be out before the end of 2018 and I am super happy about that! I loved Persona 5 so much and it’s for sure become one of my favourite game series alongside Pokemon! This is out in Japan now and has been since May (from memory…) which is pretty cool, but it means trying to avoid any of the story etc. I’m currently playing Persona 4: Dancing All Night and so far it’s been more story than game play, which is bleh. I wouldn’t mind story in Persona 5 though! πŸ˜› This is something I really want to pre order but… I probably shouldn’t. I know this would make an ideal Christmas present for someone who doesn’t know what to buy me, but all the same I WANT IT! πŸ˜€ We shall see, I’ll soon update you guys on if I’d pre ordered it.

  • Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth – Release date TBC out on Nintendo 3DS

This only recently got announced at the start of August and loads of Persona fans have been excited for it and since it being revealed, the community has gone CRAZY! I’m not going to lie I’m yet to play Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth and I really want to download it asap to play! I wanted to actually pick up the physical copy of the game to play but it costs too much these days, which in turn sucks. With the Persona 5 babies being in this game I really need to get it to play! As I said in the title, it’s yet to be given a release date here in the UK, but as soon as I find out, I’ll be pre ordering it for sure.

So there are my seven games that I’m actually really excited about coming out! Whilst writing this post I was talking to Dane about which games I was going to add and asked him to give me a hand as I was worried I was forgetting some games. Alas I was and he reminded me of quite a few! He asked me if he could mention a couple of games he’s excited for too, so I said he could to round up this post.

  • Shenmue I & II – Out August 21st 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

I played the first Shenmue back on the Dreamcast and it was a groundbreaking game for its time so when I saw it up for pre order on the Xbox One store I ordered it straight away.

  • Battlefield 5 – Out October 19th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

I have always preferred the Dice Battlefield games over the COD series, played BF1 for a short period but got bored after a while. Whilst I am ignoring the historically inaccuracies I am hoping the game play is a return to form.

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 – Out October 29th 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

There is very little I need to say about my anticipation for this. Play the first one and watch the trailers, this game will be excellent.

  • Fallout 76 – Out November 14th 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

The first multiplayer Fallout game. Count me in.

Thanks to Dane for adding some of the games he’s excited for! I’m equally excited for some of those too, but he’s far more excited than I am. πŸ˜›

What games are you looking forward to playing? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

June Wish List ’18

I cannot believe we are now officially halfway through 2018. Where did May go?! I think most of it was spent enjoying the hot weather and having bank holidays to even realise it was going, going, gone!

Now it’s June and I REALLY struggled with my wish list this month. I’m so naughty, all the books I was lusting after and added to this list I have now bought as I really wanted them. Other than that it was so incredibly hard to try and come up with stuff to add to the list.

It’s mine and Dane’s fifth anniversary in a couple of days too so you’d think I’d post items that I’d be all, “YEAH I’D LOVE FOR DANE TO BUY ME THIS HINT HINT!” but I doubt that’s going to happen! πŸ˜›

URGH enough chitty chat, let’s get on with the wish list for this month.

  • Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces – (link)

I haven’t actually bought myself any games for mine and Dane’s Nintendo Switch yet and we’ve owned it since March! I’ve had my eye on the new Mario tennis game since it was announced in March, not long before we’d bought our Switch funny enough. I’m a sucker for tennis games and for years have wanted the Mario tennis game on 3DS. This would be so much fun to play solo as well as with Dane! I’ll definitely be picking it up, especially from Smyths where you can save Β£5 off of your pre orders.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Vol. 6 – (link)

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’m loving the manga series of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid! I loved the anime, which was out last spring/summer so when I heard about the manga coming out in English, I picked it up to read. Since then, as soon as it comes out I order it! This has already been pre-ordered so I cannot wait for it to arrive now.

  • Living Dead Clothing My Neighbour Skater Dress – (link)

I’m a massive sucker for the dresses that the likes of Black Milk Clothing and Living Dead Clothing come out with, although I am yet to try the latter. I remember when Living Dead used to have their Studio Ghibli designs, but they didn’t stick around long. Recently I noticed two of the designs I wanted before were back AND they’re both in dresses, this one included. I really want to order it as a massive treat to myself, but for almost Β£50 before shipping, my soul is dying a little inside at the thought of it. I’ll see though if I fancy giving myself a massive fucking treat in the future.

  • Snotgirl Volume 2 – (link)

This has already been ordered and I cannot wait for it to arrive! During my May Favourites I wrote about how I’d loved reading volume 1 of Snotgirl so as soon as the second comic book came out I KNEW I had to order it right away! I can’t wait for this to arrive now so I can read it sooner rather than later.

  • Kidrobot Marvel Deadpool Riding A Unicorn Plush – (link)

I don’t quite know how, but recently I stumbled across this plush online and holy fucking shit how cute is it?! This is a massive Deadpool plushie that is riding a unicorn, but the best bit is that it vibrates/rumbles when you hug it or clap at it. Why? Well, why not? πŸ˜› I don’t need this, but I REALLY want it! It’d be so awesome to cuddle! This also comes in a smaller version too, which may be the better one to opt for. πŸ˜›

  • Lime Crime Plushies in shade Cherry Soda – (link)

Since these were announced agggges ago I’ve wanted to try the Lime Crime plushies lipsticks, especially the shade Cherry Soda, but as of yet I just haven’t ordered it. There’s only one place that stocks this limited edition shade and that’s Cult Beauty. I do want to order it… BUT I don’t really wear lipstick anymore… 😦 I might treat myself to it soon enough though.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Vol. 2 – (link)

ANOTHER manga and it’s also another Miss Kobayashi one… It’s also one I’ve pre-ordered. πŸ˜› The Kanna’s Daily Life series is adorable and I really do love being able to read more about the baby dragon of the family. This is only volume 2 and I cannot wait to read it, like I said I really do love this series.

  • Nana Ebina Nendoroid – (link)

This is the final item on this months wish list, purely because I want her so damn much and she’s now available to buy. Nana Ebina is from the anime Himouto! Umaru-Chan and is school friends with Umaru and in turn is my favourite, so when I saw they’d announced a Nendoroid for her I was so excited! She’s an anxious character in many ways but she’s so sweet and adorable. I didn’t realise she came with the blue and white cuddle pillow cat from the show either but apparently she does! I’m hoping deep down that for our anniversary Dane has bought me Nana Ebina… I’ll report after our anniversary! πŸ˜‰

So that was my wish list for June! I’m sorry it wasn’t anything too exciting, I’m rather boring lately when it comes to buying things. πŸ˜›

Until next time, I hope you’ve had an amazing weekend!
