Video Game Review: Fantasy Life For Nintendo 3DS

Hello Everyone And New Followers,

I know I have missed a few posts but its summer time here. It is also had to find time to posts since everyone is on the internet. So I for now on will be typing them and editing them offline so I don’t miss anymore posting days.

I will also will be taking a week off blogging July 24 to July 28. I have a guest staying at my house during that time.

We are also 9 followers away from the next giveaway.



About the game:

set in the fantasy world of Reveria, which is made up of several cities, plains, and mountains. Its rulers spend their days ruling over their citizens and guiding them in their Life paths. One day this peaceful state is shattered when a meteorite falls into the house of the player, setting off a chain of events foretold in an ancient prophecy involving Reveria’s goddess and the moon Lunares.

The player is asked by King Erik of the land of Castele to investigate these strange occurrences, as the meteorites, later dubbed Doomstones by the world’s inhabitants, have the ability to fill creatures with dark, destructive energy. They are joined in this quest by a glowing butterfly that has the ability to speak. As the game progresses, the butterfly reveals that her real name and form is Yuelia, the daughter of Celestia, whom the people of Reveria worship as the Life Goddess.

They discover soon that the Doomstones are chunks of a dome that surrounds Reveria and has been slowly falling apart. This event had happened in the past once before, but was stopped by Celestia, at the cost of her never returning to Lunares. Yuelia and her sister Noelia, discover that the only way to save the world is to gather the wishes of as many people as possible and take them up to Lunares, where those wishes will restore the dome completely. The player and the two sisters manage to successfully travel to Lunares, but soon find out that they do not have enough wishes to restore the dome. Yuelia, becoming content with her Life on Reveria, wishes that she never has to leave. With that final wish, the end of the world is averted and Reveria is saved once again, ending the main story.


My thoughts:

I enjoy the amount of class to choose from. I was the chef one of course. I love the main quest and the side quest. Also the class quest. But what I didn’t like was the game’s ending it left me unsatisfied. I truly felt that was not a real ending.  Which took away from the lovely story that I loved.

I give this game 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Video Game Review: Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies


About the game:

The dark ages of law has began 10 years ago. Now it’s up to the team to stop the darkness from taking over.


My thoughts:


This in my opinion is the worst Phoenix Wright game ever. I enjoy the first half of the game but the murder at the space center made the game worst. After dealing with the same case over and over again. Trying to find out who did it.


I give this game 2 disappoint stars out of 5 amazing stars.

I realize this is the one product I hate after getting half way through due to the overpower ginger scent. It was only 4 dollars so I am not going to cry over it. I am currently using it at night to finish it.


I picked up Brompton & Langley coconut water & hibiscus body wash.


I picked up Waterslip soapworks Rush of Roses bar soap.

Video Game Review: Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney


About the game:

Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright meet a girl named Espella Cantabella who is being chased by a powerful force of witches. They both get pulled into a book that leads them to Labyrinthia City.  Where they both need to team up to prove there is no such thing as witches.

The game is sold in stores or on the Nintendo store fro $34.99.


My thoughts:

I found the puzzle nice and straight forward with how to solve them. Some puzzles  where a challenge but after thinking about it a bit and trying to solve them. The later puzzle became more easier to solve because they where like the hard ones I took my time to solve.

I found the court case where a bit more tricky and took quite a bit of time to get through.

I found the story for this game fantastic and one of the best ones in the Professor Layton and Phoenix wright story arc.

While Professor Layton Unwound Future and Phoenix Wright is Apollo Justice Ace Attorney.

I give this game 5 stars out of 5stars.

I highly recommend to fans of both titles.

Video Game Review: Attack On Friday Monsters

Hello Everyone,

I thought since I was doing review for the next two weeks. I thought I might as well as three video games reviews in the mix. This will be the first video game review.


The Story is about a boy name Sohta whose family runs a dry cleaner business decide to move to a place where monsters attack every Friday.   Sohta goes around town trying to find out why monsters attack every Friday. It also has a side monster card game.


My thoughts:

I love the story is was very Godzilla based. The graphics where nice and clean. There was no lagging while playing. The only downside was that the main story can be finished in 1 hr and 30 mins. The monster card game can still be played but I didn’t love the monster game.

I would say if you are interested in playing this game get it while it is on sale and not pay the full price.

I give this game 3 stars out of 5 stars.

I picked up a digital copy of story of seasons. So far I am really loving the game. It much easier to play then Harvest Moon games.





I picked up at Bath and Body works pumpkin apple cider and pumpkin cupcake body lotion from what was left of the 75% off items. My sister says that she went the day after Christmas when the sale started and there was a line up of at least 75 people. I am just happy I got something.

I should also note that I didn’t like the pumpkin cupcake cause it reminds me of the fake cakes that we spray with vanilla scents to show people who was special orders what the cake size looks like.


I picked up Igloo soap from Lush. Same thing happen as Bath and Body Works. I feel bless I was able to get one item at a discounted price. I will have a review of this soap some time in the next two weeks.



I picked up Freeman pink grapefruit exfoliating scrub and apple cider vinger 4 in 1 foaming clay which I picked up for my husband.

I will have reviews of both products next month.



My youngest daughter picked these up for me when we went to superstore to buy her new clothes from Joe Fresh. Which seems to be the only brand that fits her perfectly. She is between a size 5 and 6.  The items above where 94 cents or 3 for a dollar at my local superstore. They have a lot to choose from.  I picked up 3 of the soap but she insited that I get another bar of soap and two hand creams. What a lucky mom I am.

The soaps are in the scents silver bells, sugar plum, mint macaron and milk & cookies.

The hand creams are in the scents sugar plum and silver bells.

Samantha Talks: Nintendo Switch 100 Dollars More For Canadians

Hello Everyone,

This is my blog post for today. After seeing last nights switch event. I was going to buy one for my birthday which is March.31. After being a big fan of Nintendo after my bike accident. My parents went over the boarder to buy me a N64. So after that moment I have been I big Nintendo fan.

When they announced that North America price for the Nintendo switch was 299 dollars. I was excited. I thought yes this is the year I will be able to buy one out right. I had skip the wii U due to my father being sick and the cost of paid parking and gas cost kept me from buying any new systems and games. So when I went to pre order it this morning I saw a big increase in price from USA dollars to Canadian dollars. From 299 USA dollars to 399 Canadian dollars.  After seeing that have the 1000 dollars price range on the red and blue switch on ebay this morning from scalpers really got my goat.


299 USA Dollars at the moment = 325 Canadian Dollars. Why are we pay a extra 75 dollars for a system when we have to shell out 80 more dollars for one game?

I feel like Nintendo is boning us Canadians.

I will still buy a system. It won’t be this year. I decide to each month 20 dollars in a jar. I outright buy from a company that system cost world wide at 299 dollars or less.

One year I will owe it. Just not this year.

This is just my opinion.

Have a great weekend.

Samantha The Gamer: Most Wanted Sequels

Hello Everyone,

Over the years I have played a lot of awesome games and some come out with a second game but most don’t here is my top 5 games I would love to see a sequel for.



Legend Of The Dragoon:

I love this game quite a few years back. I know they where make a sequel for this game and it got canceled but with the remake of this title for the PS4 will there be a sequel we all been waiting for in the wings?

This game is  a turn based game like final fantasy. It follows Dart starting after his parents die. He is attacked on his way home by a dragon like mantis and by the best character in the game Rose.  As the story goes along you find artifacts that can change the characters into dragoons.


Fantasy Life:

I know there is a game in the works to be release in Japan but what about coming to north America. That is still up in the air from what I heard.

This game is about adventures with a butterfly to do quests with to save Reveria.

What I love the most about this game is the class types that you can choose from.  With 12 class to choose from there is something for everyone’s different playing styles.



TomoDachi Life:

This is a simulator game.  Where you can place your miis in the game and watch them live, work at a job, travel the world, get married and have children.

The children can stay at home or visit new islands. I love my game and found I have more fun with this game then my sims game on the pc.

I have heard a rumor that the second game is in the works for Japan but what about North America. With the game price being drop to $29.99. Does this mean a new game is in the works?

I recommend this game to people who have not picked it up.



Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright:


This game combine my favorite things in a game puzzles and objecting to things.

I would love to see a sequel of this title. As far as I know there is nothing in the works at the moment.




Hyrule Warriors Legends:


Its combine Legend of Zelda with Dynasty Warriors.  Even thought is came out this year I am looking forward to a sequel or a spin off of other Nintendo characters. Like Super Mario Legends or even a cute animal crossing one.


So that is my list.


Up Next Nintendo 3DS Releases Games I am looking forward to in November to January.
