Wholesome gaming post.

The 88-year old grandma who's played Animal Crossing: New Leaf for 4,300 hours (check out her beautiful flower garden) has started to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons. She also has a character in the new game named after her, called Audie, a wolf with a nice pair of sunglasses and some spectacular winged eyeliner. Her name is significant, as Audie is the username used by Audrey when playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Nintendo decided to pay tribute to her as a thank you. In this unboxing video, Audrey answers some fan questions and opens a brand new gift - the new, limited edition New Horizons Switch console. She also boots up the game, finding out that her first villager friends are Katt and Bam. [via: Kotaku]

We regret to inform you that Gran is complicit in Tom Nook's capitalistic exploitation of the proletariat.

Since this is a wholesome gaming post I will not be talking about the Photo Studio in the Woods

Aw, I'm so glad to know about Audie's backstory! She's on my island and is really delightful.

Once more, Fizz, ups the wholesome and positive! A+++, would Fizz again.

Now I'll go back to researching something dreary and horrible....

This is so wonderful and I had no idea - Audie is one of my island's residents, I feel so weirdly honoured by her presence now.

Saw this today, which I think relates and I found funny.
