ANIMAL CROSSING | if i could start again, a million miles away

You knew I had to be the one to make this thread.

Animal Crossing: City Folk is the third game in the AC series, and debuts on the Wii on Novemeber 16th in the US. (Euros have to wait until December 5th, and Aussies have to wait until December 13th)

If you're not familiar with the series, I'll help you out.

You're a young, upstanding citizen. You can be a boy or a girl, and questions will be asked by salty taxi driver named Kapp'n to determine this among other things. You'll be dropped off unceremoniously in the town, left to wander and fend for yourself. Eventually you meet up with the town's businessman, Nook, who tells you he built you a house but now you have to pay for it. It doesn't really matter that you didn't ask, just do it. The more debts you pay off, the bigger house you get, and the more money you will owe. It is a vicious cycle, but it does eventually end, I promise.

Your town is full of lovable animal friends, that say the darndest things. Seriously. Sometimes they say some bizarre shit. Maybe you didn't need to know that your dog-neighbor washes her hair with some kind of tea shampoo, or whatever, but they don't really care. Sometimes they'll tell you that there's something they REALLY REALLY want, like a certain kind of shirt or piece of furniture, and they'll love you a whole bunch if you can manage to get it for them. They have personal relationships with each other, albeit shallow ones, and sometimes you can eavesdrop on their conversations. They might drag you in the middle to settle an argument, but animals never stay mad for long.

There's a retarded amount of stuff to keep yourself busy in this game. You can beautify your town by planting trees (regular and the fruity kind) and flowers, and if you're OCD enough to plant your flowers in a specific pattern you might even get some hybrids. You can dig up fossils and give them to the museum, fish and catch bugs, shit man you can do anything. There are fishing/bug catching competitions so you can get yourself some trophies, to show off in that beautiful house that you will never be done paying for. There are holidays to correlate with real world holidays, and the town celebrates all four seasons. Even when you shut the game off, the town goes on without you. Weeds continue to sprout, neighbors can move in and out, etc. If you log in after a long time, people will be excited to see you!


The Wii game gives you more freedom than previous games, as you can actually LEAVE THE TOWN! Unlike the Let's Play Animal Crossing story, you do have the freedom to leave and visit the "city," thus the name. Duh. You can get your hair did, change your face into your Mii's face, harass people, whatever.

The game's graphics are pretty nostalgic, I heard people bitching about them at PAX but really it wouldn't be Animal Crossing if it didn't look this adorable. It's a lot like the DS version, but prettier, which is to be expected.

    Ascot literally held me at gun point to force me to make a town for the DS version of this, but that was a month and a half ago and I haven't visited it since

    I envision rioting, fire, and death

    Then again I did call it Genosha

    I'll only get this game if there are enough letters to let me name my town Silent Hill

    just pretend that you have no real responsibilities and you don't need to eat or bathe and you can just talk to animals all day and fish

    that's really all it is

    Fucking Bud the Lion.

    I don't remember what he did to piss me off, but I hated him.

    I would send him horrible, threatening letters.

    Pull out a notepad, follow him around during the day, sit outside his house at night and keep track of his schedule.

    Hit him with my bug net until he got pissed off and then run away.

    One day he moved away and I felt so empty.

    I must admit that I am secretly drawn to Animal crossing and Harvest Moon games; it's like the Sims franchise, but with superdeformedcuddlyness.

    I will now repeat my mantra, "I am not a woman, I just like bright colors...."

    You seem very excited about this, I guess I'll probably get this for my birthday. Back before I inserted that demon Civilization Revolution into my DS, my town was getting flowers all over the place.

    Astronaut furniture is lame, it's all about classic and regal.

    constant, doesn't matter if there's a disc or not

    might call Nintendo over break and see if they wouldn't mind fixing it for free

    my wii's cooling fan broke about a year and a half ago. I kept forgetting to send it in, so now it isn't under warranty I think

    my secret satan from last year sent me this rad ultra cooling fan though

    Do you have vertical or horizontal? I've heard of people having this problem when it's vertical but not when it's horizontal.
