November Gacha Garden

Some people approach a gacha vendor with a sense of purpose and won’t leave it alone till they have that much coveted rare item. Personally I just occasionally give one of those friendly fruit machines a casual spin and I don’t pay much attention to what comes out. Those are my little surprises for later, when I have a quiet moment to unpack it all. Spending too much time at a gacha machine reminds me of a deep dark past with compulsive gambling and I prefer to keep that monster locked away. The Gacha Garden however, is a sweet little sim made for wandering around at, taking  a look at what’s new in this Life we call Second and grabbing a bunch of gifts.

This is not the kind of event you should go to if you are a manly man who only likes manly things or if you are a lady (enter Emily Howard: “I’m a laaaady!”) who doesn’t hold with all that fluffy nonsense. Case in point: I was already about halfway through when I spotted the first menswear items. The Gacha Garden is more a mix of whimsical collectables, imaginative women’s apparel and accessories with just a sprinkling of furniture, home decoration items and the occasional odd one out, like Speakeasy with their tattoos and poses.

Be careful with that music box from Infinity, that tune is hypnotic! I mentioned this in a group chat, stating that I have never played Final Fantasy and wasn’t familiar with the music. Someone else replied that hey hadn’t even heard of Final Fantasy and when they were told it’s a game that’s been around for a long time they said: “Oh, so like Mario Bros. Not cool and trendy clearly.” This made me sigh audibly, and mumble to myself: “The last time the word “trendy” was acceptable was around 1997, but you do you boo boo.”
