Okay, so not the worst, worst thing. But still.
The worst thing happened!
My Nintendo Switch died!
I should maybe explain that I started playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons recently. I had never played an Animal Crossing game before. I found it highly entertaining. I played, according to my Switch before it died, for 125 hours or more. Not to mention the hours I had put into my replay of Breath of the Wild.
Then on Saturday, I put my Switch to sleep to go make dinner, and it didn’t want to wake back up.
I did everything I could to bring it back. I even called my husband down to come and look at it.
Nothing worked. It was well and truly dead.
My husband did have one minor solution though. See, we are a two switch household. We discovered a while ago that we both like playing Switch game and taking it on trips and the like. So two Switches quickly became a necessity in our lives.
The hubs just suggested I use his until we could send mine off to Nintendo for repairs. Which will be a while, since the repair center is closed due to Covid-19, as it should be.
With the hubs’ great sacrifice, I was off!
I did have to start the game all over again, but I learned from the last time I played. What took me almost two weeks to do last time, took me a day and a half to do this time.
I’m trying hard not to do things the same way. I picked a different roof color for my house, for example. And of course, the island is different. And I got all new villagers, which is great, though I did like my old villagers.
Oh! And because I had gotten Nintendo Switch Online, I didn’t lose all my gameplay for Breath of the Wild! Still wish you could back your Animal Crossing island up though!
