Fourth time in a row, this Friday’s Cup of Coffee! Aside from the fact that I love coffee, it’s a way for me to close the week too. Friday is my only day off in the week, and it’s nice to know that I’ll be able to sit down with you, enjoying our cup of comfort and talking to you about what’s keeping me busy, is really nice. Just wanted to say, thank you for showing up every week! Now for the little tidbits of news that I wanted to mention!
You know Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival for the WiiU is getting close, right? it will be in stores both in the US as in Europe at the end of November. Most fans would have loved to get a real Animal Crossing game for the WiiU, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. This new party-game has been received with raised eyebrows, and I’m afraid it won’t get any better. It would seem the game doesn’t have any online functionality! So you can only play it with people who are with you in the room. What a pity!
Free is good, right? If you own an European 3DS, you can download a free Home theme this week. To celebrate that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is such a big hit ( it has surpassed 4 million sales globally!) the theme Palicoes 4 Ever is free to download from October 23 till October 30. Now, I don’t play the main series, but I have enjoyed Monster Hunter Diary Poka Poka Village very much, so I’m glad with this freebie.
Remember how I tried the get some interest going for a Yokai Watch? There’s a demo available in the American eShop for Yokai Watch, so if you are interested but not yet sure, download it! I’m surprised though that the game is rated 10+. I’ve played the Japanese game, and I don’t find anything wrong with it for smaller kids. I guess they are afraid that some ghosts might be too much for them?
Oh, one last thing, a real life thing. I attended a meeting this week about gender diversity in the company where I work; like in most companies women seem to be held back in reaching senior positions, whether it’s because of their (male) employers or by some misguided self image. The question was if women should act more like men do to get ahead in their career, and the discussion kicked off with the Tale of Two Brains. I had seen it before, but it always makes me laugh when I see it again. See how men and women differ!
