Rescue all the Puppies

One of my favorite genre of mobile games is something that I like to call Soap Opera Games. These are simple games, mostly pressing different things on the screen, and for some reason, they have the most outrageous plot lines, a complete contrast to the gameplay. This time, I played the wonderful Dr. Cares: Pet Rescue 911. I originally wanted to play this game because of all the cute puppies, I will admit, but then a bought the rest of the game because of the storyline that started to unfold. I didn’t think that a romantic subplot was going to reveal itself, but there it was. I was playing this because of the love of animals, but then cute love interests revealed. It was unexpected, but I was not disappointed. I’ll admit, I was rooting for another love interest over another, but I’ll leave that for you to decide.

You can find this game iOS, Android, KindleFire, and Steam.

Fabulous Inner Self

Following the theme of love, I decided to do one that discusses self-love. Given that information, I decided to talk aboutĀ Queer Eye, the second version. I have actually binge-watch this series twice. I absolutely love this cast. First and foremost, I love diversity. Having two queer characters of color is amazing. Myself, being a person of color in the community, it feels kind of hard to find characters that I can see as myself. I don’t even care what gender they identify as I saw myself being represented in media. I also love the energy that the dive off of each other. In some shows, the people sometimes go off the deep end with the change, but these guys take it step-by-step. The nominees are still themselves at the end of the episode, they just have a better self-confidence about themselves. Also, because the changes are so simple, yet so meaningful, it’s possible to see that changes being used after the Fab 5 leave. Personally, I would love to see a “Where Are They Now?” episode, so that I can see if the changes were kept up. All of the people are lovely, so I absolutely would not mind seeing them again. This is actually one of the perfect shows to watch anytime. It will make you feel amazing the entire time. You might need to dab your eyes every now and again, but they’re tears of joy.

Dating Parody

I decided to start this month by watching a comedy all about dating. I especially wanted to watch this because it was written in part by a couple of my favorite writers from College Humor, Emily and Murph. This particular show isĀ Hot Date. I’ve been meaning to watch this for a while when it was announced on YouTube, so I’m happy to have finally gotten around to watching it. The two of them are absolutely hilarious together. It was also hilarious that the majority of the characters are portrayed by the two of them. All of these characters would be a part of the same friend group, but somehow never showed up in the same place at the exact same time. For no reason what so ever, I found that the funniest part of the entire show. I also played a bit on popular culture and “standards” of dating and bringing it into the millennial culture. It’s a short 10 episode series on Netflix so you can make an afternoon out of it. I think the only thing you will regret is not watching this show sooner.

Aside

February 2019 Theme

So this month, I’m going to do something a little bit different. I’m going to have a theme. For the month of February, the theme is going to be love, and I mean love of all times. As long as I can relate to love, it will be going up on this blog. Usually, February is reserved for romantic love, but it honestly should more than that. Also, this will be more fun than complaining about being forever alone.

Infinately Bouncing

Alright, so I promise this will be the last idle game that I talk about for a while. This one is called Idle Bouncer and it’s free on Steam (I hope you’re seeing a pattern here.). Unlike the Loading Screen Simulator, every reset gets you further into the game. As my main problem with that game, it was nice that that wasn’t the case with this one. The basis of the game is bouncing balls in these columns to generate energy. Using the energy generated, you improve the entire system and get as far as you can without it getting tedious, and then restarting once again. I absolutely loved this, the first time I opened the game, I had it open for about three hours, I want to say before I closed it and do what an idle game does best. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves idle games as much as I do.

For the Good of the Country

Another one of the idle games that are constantly being opened on my computer is AdVenture Communist, the “sequel” to AdVenture Capitalist. AdVenture Communist is a whole different beast than it’s Capitalist counterpart. Instead of just needing to make sure that you have enough money to purchase a business, you have to have enough supplies in order to purchase an upgrade. There is also a trickle-down effect in which the higher level purchases affect the lower level purchases. This game is honestly a balancing act. If you purchase things too fast, you’re screwed; if you purchase upgrades too slow, it’s going to take you a while to really get started. My head still gets confused as to what I’m trying to do, neither the less. I would definitely suggest getting this game if you are obsessed with idle games as much as I am. It’s free!
