    So has anybody else had their lives utterly ruined by Nintendo’s latest offering? Blimey, it’s good, though I do feel a bit of a twat walking around my pretend town holding a non-existent watering can watering imaginary flowers when I could have been going out into the actual outdoors. But there we are.

    My 3DS Friend Code is 5043-1877-6294. Add me if you’re playing, and let me know what fruit you have. I have Pears, Apples, Cherries and Peaches.

    I don’t have a 3DS but I’m determined to bankrupt Tom Nook on the previous one, loanshark scummy fuck. This is what too much ganja and a lunchbreak with a DSXL does to you…

    I’ve got bananas, cherries, mangos and oranges.

    Will trade for a 3DS.

    I’ve never played an Animal Crossing game…I’m considering this one but haven’t quite reached the tipping point.

    I was tipped early this morning. Been back and forth on getting it a few times but decided to treat myself.

    #208309

    Alright, I bought it. There’s something appealing about a virtual Ridley coming to my town to fuck shit up, so I’ve tipped.

    So far I’ve done nothing but sleep in a pup-tent. When I got to town though they gave me a pink flowered shirt and Peach’s parasol though, so I think they have a good handle on me.

    Wish you were that easy in real life. Have to wait for it to be delivered so I guess you’ll have to settle for Paddon fruit until then, Phil.

    With the download being more expensive I can wait a few days. Plus dat cover art.

    I didn’t even check the download price…I was tempted to get it that way, since it seems like a great thing to have on the system at all times, but I had some store credit I figured I’d use up. Guess I made the right choice.

    This is my system code: 2449-4714-0169

    I’ll add you later, Ben. Anyone else who adds me just post here with your code and I’ll add you back.

    I think I only have apples. Maybe there’s other fruit somewhere but FUCK DAT IMMA FISH ALL DAY

    Phil: Y’radded.

    My fruit at the moment consist of Pears, Peaches, Cherries and (I think) Apples.

    I have apples and oranges. I’ll resist the temptation to compare them.

    I would have coconuts but some time last night Tom Nook dug it up to make room for a new house. They paved paradise. :(

    What is the point of picking a secluded spot for a home if Nook is just going to plop another house right outside the door?

    And I accidentally sold my watering can. :(

    As mayor I wish I had some say in where Tom Nook wants to plop his homes. It seems like wherever I plant a rare tree, he’s behind a bush somewhere with the keys to a bulldozer.

    I think lame duck Tortimer must have been in the pocket of Big Nook and signed a massive set of zoning approvals into place before I took office. Now I am living with the nightmare!!!!

    Also his sons try to sell me a watering can every day. Start carrying the damn slingshot already!

    Attention residents of Narcisso:

    A veritable shitload of fruit has bloomed overnight!

    There are apples, oranges, peaches, durians, bananas, cherries and lemons to eat off the ground like hobos. There’s also some bamboo to spank your wife with.

    I hope you enjoy living in my town. Eventually I will speak to one of you.

    Your Mayor,
    –Philip

    If ever I wanted to kill a man in order to steal his clothing, it would have been Ridley for his Alan Partridge blazer.

    Watching my brother and his girlfriend play ‘Viva PiƱata’ is very similar.

    ‘Ooh, now I can plant more seeds’
    ‘ARGH someone is attacking my garden!’… etc etc. it’s very amusing when you know nothing about the game…

    A drunk seagull mailed me a working replica of that little Belgian boy peeing.

    It’s the new centerpiece of my living room.

    Gulliver? He sent me a Shamrock Clock. I sold it. I hope he never finds out, or I shall be very embarrassed.

    It’s cicada season in Narcisso! Apparently. Which means it’s really annoying outdoors and far preferable to just stay inside all day.

    And just like that, Animal Crossing became the most realistic game ever made.

    #208615

    I’ve caught about seventeen-billion variants of cicada.

    That might be a slight exaggeration.

    How do the downloadable post office items work? Like, how often can I get one? I got yelled at every day for asking the pelican, but then today she gave me a palm tree that lights up when I rub it.

    Is it the same item for everyone? How often can I get a new one? Will the pelican go out with me?

    Same for the West, probably every month and not with that attitude.

    Anyone musically inclined able to help me switch my town’s Sherlock theme (which got old real fast) to “mmmm whatcha say”, plz?

    I had a hard time “writing” my town theme. No matter what I did, Isabella would sing it back to me and it would sound beautiful. Then later I’d hear some grumpy citizen fart out its melody and I’d be faced with just how truly shit it was.

    I like mine now, though. So does the lesbian teddy bear who’s always whistling it and tricking me into thinking I hear a rare cicada.

    Only bear in my town keeps inviting me to his home to watch him work out.

    If I’d known the original town tune was random I never would have changed it.

    My town theme is the Red Dwarf theme, obviously. I’d havwe it set to the PortsCenter theme, but unless previous versions of Animal Crossing there doesn’t appear to be a way to do sharp or flat notes.

    So what did you do when you got to “Fun, fun, fun”?

    I didn’t. The town tune only goes up to “There’s no kind of atmosphere”.

    When the game reaches the top of the hour and the clock bell goes off, it sounds like the Creator’s doorbell from BtE.

    Will pay good money for Hawaiian shirts (or “Aloha” shirts I guess) in anything but red.

    …no I won’t. But I’ll give you some bells.

    You can get different shirt colours at… the island.

    And why is that shirt not available in human adult size?

    When the F does Club LOL open up? Some creepy-ass monster showed up and asked me to collect signatures, so I did that, and he said he’d be opening on main street and to feel free to check in on how he’s doing.

    He’s never been back since. I feel like I’ve just been sold a monorail.

    My sister wants me to share a picture of her town’s flag with you. The Parks and Recreation fans will appreciate it.

    Phil: The club opened up about a week after I got the signatures.

    Thanks Ben. Club LOL opened up last night, and I went in and was immediately depressed by the sight of a dog playing hip-hop variations on my shitty town theme to an empty room. :(

    Si: That looks great! Let your sister know you can take screen shots by pressing L and R together, though, that may make it easier for her to share pictures when she wants to!

    HELP! PHIL HAS US TRAPPED ON AN ISLAND AND WON’T LET US LEAVE!!

    IT’S NOT NEARLY AS EROTIC AS THE BROCHURE MADE OUT!

    ONLY 39%

    IF THAT

    Sorry! Had something unexpected to attend to.

    I eventually returned and let all of the trapped people return to civilization.

    All of the trapped people that you know of.

    Also nobody go bug hunting with Ridley.

    You can also upload screenshots directly from the 3Ds, which is nice. Just press Home during the game, open the web browser (which won’t close the game), and go to i.nintendo.net. Yu can upload to Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook.

    Posting this here for my own reference later, and just in case it appeals to you guys:

    I’m not using any of these yet because I want more public works stuff done before I start laying down roads and paths that I may have to end up changing later. But if you’re more advanced in your city planning, hopefully you’ll like some of these. They do look great.

    Anyway I think the only fruits I need now are pears and persimmons. Somebody give me those.

    I do have a question about my house…does the physical space it takes up in the town ever change? I know Nook told me to pick an area that left room for expansion, but I’ve added a second floor, a basement and a room in the back, and I don’t know if it’s actually gotten bigger.

    If the house itself doesn’t physically grow I’m going to kill him because that’s the only reason I picked the space that I did.
