Because they are horrible adults Marcia and Carrie make the obvious joke about Sony pulling out of the PAX East expo. On a related note we do have a blog post up here about how to avoid the PAX Plague. This podcast episode is full of gaming chat, television shows, movies, and Jax’s upcoming trip to PAX East.
All efforts to talk about one or two games went out the window as per usual. The ladies chat about the Animal Crossings New Horizons Nintendo Direct broadcast very excitedly. Marcia talks about her latest games including Journey to the Savage Planet, and Fortnite Season 2. Also included in that lineup is Effie, a great action-adventure indie game that everyone should check out.

With Sony skipping PAX East over coronavirus concerns many attendees may be wondering if they should do the same. With the extra viruses going on do we all need to wear facemasks, bathe in hand sanitzer, and walk under a constant rain cloud of Lysol spray?
As a lifelong fan of the Animal Crossing series of games I’m keeping a very close watch on Hokko Life. It looks like it could be the answer to all of the prayers of PC players wishing they had an Animal Crossing type game to enjoy. Hokko Life is being created by ex-Sony developer Robert Tatnell. I’m so exited about this upcoming game I decided to hop on board and support his Patreon.
About Hokko Life:
Hokko Life is a creativity-filled community sim game that invites players to escape the hustle-bustle and relax in their new home of Hokko. Build the town of your dreams with Hokko Life’s creativity tools, which allow you to customize and design furniture, clothing, and much more! Those creative juices not flowing? Why not relax and while away the hours at a local fishing spot; out hunting bugs; or tending to your garden!
Hokko Life Announcement Trailer:
🔨 CRAFT: Head to the forest or the abandoned mine to chop; mine, and dig for resources. Take what you’ve collected back to town and craft them into materials you can use in your own designs.
📐 DESIGN: Gather your materials and head into the workshop to put your own spin on every item in the game. Use the design table to build your own furniture, combining different shapes and materials in a simple but powerful editor.
🎨 PAINT: Pop on your overall, get out those brushes and throw some colour down. You can design wallpaper, flooring and even T-Shirts for you and the villagers to wear. Get everyone in town wearing your own unique designs!
🏠 BUILD & DECORATE: Enlist the help of the resident builder and start expanding the town. Place buildings wherever you like and get them ready for new villagers to move to town. Customize these new homes inside and out; choose designs and place furniture to make a home your new friends will love.
🌱 FARM: Turn any plot of land into a place to grow vegetables and other plants, use your green fingers to grow and sell the best produce.
🎣 FISH: Spend a quiet morning at the various fishing spots around the world of Hokko and build your fishing collection. Fish have unique habits, so you’ll need to vary your approach, with each catch providing it’s own challenge when you reel in.
🦋 BUG HUNT: Fluttering and scuttling about the world of Hokko you’ll find a whole range of insects for you to catch and build your collection with; keep a eye out, you never know what might be hiding in that bush!

While I realize this isn’t a family-friendly title I personally am an adult who enjoys playing pew pew zombie games with my friends.
