    Now is your chance to chill with Harv in your very own Animal Crossing themed Tiny Zen Garden.

    Looking for a wonderful way to spruce up your personal space? Trying to find that perfect gift for the Animal Crossing fanatic in your life? Or would you just like a charming little Zen Garden to help you find peace at any time you may seek it? If you answered yes to any or all of these, then this little Animal Crossing themed Tiny Zen Garden Kit may be just the thing you are looking for!

    The adorableness of this little Zen Garden cannot be overstated. It features a small, hand-painted scene of one of my favorite characters in the Animal Crossing series, Harvey. No one more chill than Harv. And now he can help you “find your center” in your very own home.

    The whole kit starts with a fenced in “Zen Zone”. You will recognize the fence as being the Picket Fence from ACNH. You will fill the zen zone with the sand (included in the kit), then place the various composition items to your liking. I added my own moss for effect, but you can choose to add any greenery you wish to bring it to life more. The included items are as follows:

    1x Harvey Figurine
    1x Harvey House
    1x Harvey House firewood stand
    1x Zen Bridge
    1x Cherry Blossom Tree
    6x Stones
    1x Sand rake
    1x Themed Gift Box

    Once your scene is complete, just rake the sand into different shapes and patterns until nothing matters and you are one with the universe. Zen accomplished! And all of this comes in an adorably packaged kit, so feel free to give it as gift to a friend or loved one.

    If you want to get one of these limited Animal Crossing themed Zen Garden kits, you can do so right here.

    Here are 15 super cute games for the 3DS to celebrate the consoles 10th anniversary.

    It has been exactly 10 years since Nintendo launched the 3DS in North America. The handheld console may have had a rough start with a price tag a little too high but once Nintendo listened to its fanbase the handheld quickly become a fans favorite gaming machine and has sold more than 75 million units since its original launch back in February 2011.

    With the Nintendo Switch just recently celebrating its third birthday, I thought it would be a great idea to take a look at the Nintendo 3DS. This handheld console was first released in February of 2011. The 3DS features a library of more than 1297 games – I took 15 of the cutest ones and listed them right here for you! Join me on a journey through The 15 Best Cute 3DS Games.

    I also compiled a list of my 15 favorite Nintendo 3DS games, so if case you missed that list, check it out! This time I am being a little more specific. Kawaii lovers rejoice! Here are some of the 15 cutest 3DS games.

    • Disney – Magical World: Released in 2013, Disney Magical World was highly anticipated by Disney fans and kawaii lovers alike. Being cute, wholesome and not requiring commitment, the game is perfect for children, and casual gamers with busy lives. ( get it here )
    Disney Magical World 2
    • Disney – Magical World 2: With all the same perks as the game’s predecessor, as well as new characters, outfits, items, minigames, and worlds to explore, this game was also very well received. ( get it here )
    Detective Pikachu
    • Detective Pikachu: Detective Pikachu is a recently released game for the 3DS. Considering the main character of the game (who has a cult following due to his cuteness) is a lil detective (●´ω`●), it’s safe to say this game is cute. ( get it here )
    • Pokémon Rumble World: Cuddly toy Pokémon. Those three words scream cuteness (although as Pocket Camp would say, not literally, as that would be terrifying). With the ability to play as a Mii character in a kingdom of toys, the retail version of this adorable game was released worldwide in 2016. ( get it here )
    Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    • Animal Crossing: New Leaf: OBVS. With a cute alpaca couple, three hedgehog sisters, a pigeon barista, and a town full of anthropomorphic animals, there’s nothing about this game that isn’t cute! This classic installment in the series is still popular today for its adorable aesthetic alone.  ( get it here )
    Tomodachi Life
    • Tomodachi Life: Released worldwide in 2014, Tomodachi life is a surprisingly entertaining game. Using mii characters, players can populate the island, unlock new shops and items, form relationships, and even have a baby. ( get it here )
    Fantasy Life Online
    • Fantasy Life: Aesthetic AND cute. Released worldwide by Level 5 in 2014, it comes as no surprise that the game is endearing. If slaying dragons isn’t your cup of tea, you can instead enjoy the entertaining storyline and numerous cute features (such as plushlings and pets) that the game has to offer. ( get it here )
    Moco Moco Friends
    • Moco Moco Friends: I hadn’t heard of this one until recently. At first I thought “Oh, like Pokémon Rumble?” due to the game’s cuddly toy theme. Apparently, it’s possible to get even cuter than Pokémon rumble, as Moco Moco Friends combines a magic school and cuddly toy monsters whilst also evoking a ghibli-esque theme. ( get it here )
    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
    • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask: It’s no secret that the Professor Layton series consists of games with stunning stories, mesmerizing music, and amazing artwork. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask doesn’t disappoint with it’s colorful carnival-esque theme and unusual plot. ( get it here )
    Professon Layton and the Azran Legacy
    • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy: Admittedly, this game was kind of bittersweet due to being the last main series game to be made. However, with it’s multitude of worlds to explore, treachery, and plot twists, in combination with the usual incredible artwork and music, this game is also a must-play for 3DS owners and Layton fans. ( get it here )
    • Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Released in 2012, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a rhythm video game made by Square Enix with Final Fantasy characters. Rated 8.5/10 by IGN, the chibi game was popular enough to warrant an iOS sequel in 2014. ( get it here )
    • Kirby: Triple Deluxe: Kirby himself is a little cutie pie (the words of my brother), so naturally the 2014 game Kirby: Triple Deluxe was going to make this list. After Kirby’s friend Dedede is kidnapped by Taranza (who has created a giant ‘dreamstalk’), Kirby sets off to bravely rescue him! Is it just me who finds it hard to take such a cute little hero seriously? Tee hee. ( get it here )
    • Yo-Kai Watch: Jibanyaaaaaan! Also a product of Level 5, the colourful game Yo-Kai watch is definitely cute with cat yo-kai such as Jibanyan, a scatterbrained butler named Whisper, and it’s anime like features. ( get it here )
    Yo-Kai Watch 2
    • Yo-Kai Watch 2 (Bony Spirits, Fleshy Souls & Psychic Specters): Oh mah swirls! Like it’s predecessor, Yo-Kai Watch 2 (which has 3 variations) is also a cute must-play 3DS game. ( get it here )
    • Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale: Described by Hardcore Gamer as “thoroughly charming from the very start”, this 2016 rarely talked about game is definitely cute enough to warrant a play-through. ( get it here )

    In a recent chat with devs, I learned that Cooking Mama Cookstar is still being updated and polished.

    Since the last time I covered it, Cooking Mama Cookstar has gone through many changes and updates, making it a game worthy of the Nintendo Switch. In the beginning, many didn’t think it was likely that this game would live up to the reputation of its predecessors.

    After an in-depth chat with the developers, iI learned that the initial patches would be just the beginning of the changes coming to Cooking Mama Cookstar. A few patches were then released to fix some of the issues, and I have no doubt that there will be more fine tuning to come.

    Cooking Mama Cookstar

    I’d say that this is most wonderful news indeed, seeing as how there wasn’t supposed to be another Cooking Mama game…ever. In its current state, I can personally say that Cooking Mama Cookstar is definitely worth the time and attention of all fans of the Cooking Mama franchise.

    This title is super cute and addicting, just like any cooking game should be. It is very exciting to see that the game is still more than the negative press it has received (mostly false accusations and bandwagon negativity), and that it continues to improve and grow.

    cooking mama cookstar

    While the game is currently not available through the Nintendo eShop, you can still find it on Amazon, and I was personally able to secure a few hardcopies for fans of both Cooking Mama and myPotatogames.

    How to enter!

    I have four copies to share with my friends (one lucky winner will also receive a Cooking Mama plushie with their copy), and all you have to do is comment on this post that you would like to enter, and share to FaceBook or Retweet on Twitter. I will take it from there. Winners will be announced one week from today, on January 29th, 2021.

    If you would like to just skip the giveaway and secure a copy for yourself now, visit the official website for the game. There you will find more information about Cookstar, as well as directions to where you may purchase a copy (available in limited supply, hopefully more coming soon).

    Good luck to all who participate, and I hope you enjoy Cooking Mama Cookstar as much as I have.

    Here are some of my favorite farming games currently available, or coming soon, for the different consoles.

    It seems that these days new farming games are coming out left and right. And because most single-person or small-team indie groups tend to build their games on PC, we get a lot of these awesome farming games on PC first. Compared to ten years ago, Steam is overflowing with farming games! Sometimes they come to console later, but some will remain exclusive forever.

    But there is good news for everyone who has a preference for console gaming, or who doesn’t have a game-worthy PC right now. We’ve put together a satisfyingly large list of farming games that are either already available on console, or are confirmed to be coming to console at a later time.

    Here are some console games that contain farming, growing or gardening mechanics, and they are all available on at least one dedicated gaming machine that is currently still in production. But they are not all in the same genre, and the emphasis placed on farming is different in each game, so these lists represent a variety.

    I hope you’ll spot some of your favorites here, and maybe even have a few more to tell me about, so we can continue to make this list longer and longer.

    Farming Games You Can Play Right Now
