Just ordered a couple dressers for the 1st takers to show, and also I just visited Groovania where Nth's Nook has a refrigerator for sale. smile


That fridge is a cabinet, by the way.  I own one.

What are these gyroids for?  I have a bunch but other than making annoying sounds they don't seem too useful.


That's what they are for. smile  If I remember correctly, they make noise in rhythm to whatever song you have playing on your radio in the house.

Yes, I need some storage in my home soon as well!  Hopefully Nook sells me something handy for that soon.  slywink

Here's to hoping the little raccoon having an axe to sell me today!


I had a cabinet in Nook's store yesterday that you could have bought.  He is closed today for my next expansion, but the cabinet would have been gone anyway.  I will be on the look out for one, though, and save it for you.

Update on the kitty thing.  THe mother kitty sent me a mail with a present attached.  The present was a little picture of the kitten and the mother together.  Very cool.

One thing I discovered that I don't like.  I left my wifi connection going so that someone could go to my town and buy my slingshot in Nook's.  I got back later and checked and the DS had lost connection to the Wifi.  The problem is, though, that it makes you reboot the game and you lose everything since the last save.  SO, if people did all kinds of cool things in your town and then you get disconnected, you lose it all.  That kind of sucks.

I keep looking for reasons to boycott the gaming specialty stores like EB and Gamestop.  The fact that they get games first usually makes me stop.  That distinction is starting not to matter anymore, though, as I become more and more dissatisfied with crap like this.

Is there a way to get designs into other people's towns?  
I found a design by Addy and Jason in my store, but I didn't see an option to leave one when I went to another town.


Go up ot one of the mannequins and click on it and choose that you want to display.  It will ask if you want to replace it or trade it (trade means it will take the design currently on that mannequin and put it in your designs in place of the design you are trying to place).  I chose to replace so that I could keep my design.

Also, has anybody else gotten to mess around with the time at all?  It's actually kinda fun - you can use it for games of hide-n-seek, tag, etc., and it also has a fish/bug counter if you want to use it for contests.  I can order a few more from the catalogue if anybody wants one...


Dimmona,  how exactly does the counter feature work exactly?  Do you just watch someone catch fish and manually count each one on it or does it have some way to watch a player and count automatically?

Man, I agree with everyone - this game is so awesome.  So much fun.  So much to do.  SO much variety.  Everyone I've met looks differently.  It's what the Cube version was and more.  WITH portability.  Fantastic!


I agree with you 100%.  People were saying it was a port of the GC version, but there is so much more to this game than there was in the old one.  Sure, the basic premise is the same, but they added a ton of new things to the game and the multiplayer really adds a lot.  For instance, white turnips.  Before you bought them and usually just sold them to Tom Nook in your town.  Well now, you can go to a bunch of different towns to check the prices there.  Much more flexibility because of the multi.  It takes everything I loved about Animal Crossing and gave it even more depth.

Fye, looks like you've just been unlucky.  I've had watering cans on two days now, but no axes yet!


I have all the tools I need:  axe, pole, shovel, slingshot, net, and watering can.  I think in the store this morning I had a slingshot, so maybe I will open my town later tonight and the first one to the town can go buy it.

Something coll happened in my town last night.  I was walking around and saw this little kitten crying.  She said she was lost and wanted her mommy who was in a town my friend has called Salmon.  So, I called my friend up, asked him to open his town up, and escorted the kitten to her town.  The mom cat was there waiting at the gate and thanked me for escorting the kitten back home.  I was hoping she would give me something for my efforts, but she didn't.  Maybe I will get something in the mail in the future or something.  Seems like a lot of effort to go through to get no reward, but it was still cool, nonetheless.

Man what did I do wrong?  I met him.  He asked me to make a request so I told him Jingle Bells.  He played a song then told me he actually didn't know Jingle Bells then it was done.

I GOT NO SONG!!   :evil:


You have to not request a song to get a song.  I requested the first time and he played a song and told me he didn't know mine.  Then I told him I didn't have a request and he played Agent K.K. and I got the song.


Don't know about that, I requested a song I heard about online (there are lists of songs out there) and he gave it to me.  Maybe if you spell it wrong?  Don't know.


WHen I typed my reply I assumed he asked for a song that wasn't real, just like I did.  I am sure if you ask for a real song, you get it.

I'm slowly paying off my first mortgage.  I really need a bigger pad.  The fruit from the other towns is certainly helping.  Thanks guys!


You get paid for bee stings.  I got sting by a bee today and I got 100 bells int he mail later that day.

Does anyone know: If you leave your town connected to wi-fi but close the lid so it goes into sleep mode can people still access your town?  I'm guessing it shuts everything down temporarily but I'm not sure.


This game doesn't go into full sleep mode.  It only shuts teh screens down.  I think this is because of the real time nature of the game.  At any rate, you can plug it in, open your gates, and close the lid and all will be well.

Also, Nth seems to always be in a conversation when I go to try to enter his town.  If you have dialog up with an animal, people cannot enter your town, so keep this in mind.

Yeah, that was me.  I am sure I can order afros in the catalog in Tom Nook's (I was abl to order another night sky tee for an animal who wanted one), so you guys let me know if you want some and I will order them for you.

Tebunker, neither one of your codes works for me.

Also, I wonder if the red triangle / green circle indicates whether the friend list entry is 2-way.  That is to say, if I had you on my friend list and you had me on yours, then there would be a green circle.  

I keep going online to find some of you guys, but when I try to visit a distant town, either nobody is online or they don't show up on my list.  When are most people online?  I'll bring some peaches!


I keep having this problem, too.  I never see you guys online.  I keep my town open a fair bit, but never see anyone.  Maybe I will leave it on and plugged in over night and see if any of you come.  I would rather interact, though.

Many will laugh, but no console platform has monopolized my time as much as my DS.  However, I still ned to get a PS2 and pick up all the RPGs I have missed over the years.  I still think the DS will win out, though, because I don't have to have a TV to play it.  I just pick it up wherever and whenever I want and enjoy some quick gaming goodness.  Just think, the platform is excellent after just a year.  Imagine how much better the games will get over time.  My PSP is getting lonely.

Well, IF this is all true, then how was I supposed to know that the USA today was lying?

I'm sorry that people can't get it. I know that some of you are probabily jumping up and down in glee...but I am just sad for all the gamers that can't get an XBox 360 right now.

I am sure glad I have mine though (and I would have had one regardless of winning the contest, since I preordered in May and was #3 on the list at my Gamestop) and I am having a blast with it. I'm just sad more people can't experience this amazing system.

I really think that MS blew it bigtime by having all 3 launches so damn close to each other. There are reports out of the UK that most stores are only getting 1-2 units in for launch over there tomorrow.

Bad move, MS. You need to focus on one area at a time. I hope Sony doesn't make the same mistake.


He admitted it!!!!

I played a bit more last night and got to the babies.  The game is just fun, plain and simple.  I really love the use of the dual screen, with the babies slitting off to do things to open the way for Mario and Luigi.  Doing the Bros. attacks with the adults and babies combined is a lot of fun as well.

Well, I promised impressions, so here they are.  I didn't get to play as much as the other person who posted did, so I didn't get to the spot where you got to control 4 people in battle mode, though I could tell that would be a game mechanic since the babies got the X and Y buttons and Mario and Luigi got the A and B buttons.  So far, the story and humor has been fun.  This game supports the rumble pack, and I like the little additions it adds.  For instance, when you open up your inventory management (which in the game is in the form of a little suitcase), you get a rumble which makes it feel like the suitcase is opening.  I have always been a big fan of rumble features and I like the way this rumble pack has felt for this game and for Metroid Prime Pinball.

The gameplay is the same, mechanics-wise, as Superstar Saga, which I think we all expected.  One thing I love about the series is the timed  button presses, which I know some do not like.  I just like the melding of RPG with twitch mechanics.  I especially love have to figure out the timings for different monsters so you know who they are going to attack, when they are going to do it, and how to avoid and hopefully counter their attack.  This hasn't changed from Superstar Saga and is in this game, so I know I will love it.

That is about all I can say based on my small playtime.  Looks to be just as good as Superstar Saga as far as story, writing, and gameplay.  In fact, I think having to control 4 players will make it even better.  Oh, the dual screen is nice as well, with the map at the top.  I also like how the action moves from the bottom to top screens.  For instance, when the suitcase is instructing you how he works, he will move from one screen to another and I just like the way they did it.

To answer JCC's question, the save is pretty quick.  I can't remember how long Superstar Saga was, because I played and beat it back when it came out, but the save here isn't very long.

Sadly, it is true.  The devs said they felt it took you out of the ANimal Crossing world, so they eliminated it.  I have a feeling it has more to do with the upcoming downloadable content for the Revolution, but sometimes I can be a little too cynical, even when it comes to my beloved Nintendo.

 :lol:

I would have still had an Xbox 360 on launch day....cause I preordered my system in MAY and was #3 on the list at Gamestop. People are free to bitch all they want, just like I am free to say it isn't all that bad. It's called an opinion.

Is it a flawless launch....hell no. But it is far from a complete disaster. Lets see if MS actually ships more units before we get all bent out of shape over internet rumors of a massive shortage...k?


Sounds fair.  Now, go back to being a fanboy for Oblivion so I can like you better. smile

I absolutely love it.  If you are a fan of the Tony Hawk series, you will love it.  I also like all the WiFi integration, like downloading new challeneges, board and grafitti art, and uploading my scores to see how I rank against my peers.  Plus, you can download replays of those sick scores you see high in the rankings to see how in the hell they did it.  The WiFi for the game kicks Mario Kart's ass as far as coolness and implementation.  I just beat story mode yesterday and am now working on beating each of the Classic modes with different skaters to get those unlockables.  The music is good, too, but starts to repeat after about 30 minutes of play.  Good thing I like the songs, though.

With all the great games I have in my collection, I don't see how you could possibly want to bring it back after you've played it.  My favorite games:

Mario Kart
Kirby Canvas Curse
Tony Hawk American Sk8land
Meteos
Advance Wars
Castlevania
Mario 64
Metroid Pinball

I have other games than that which I like, but don't consider them to be must-haves.  I bought SOnic RUsh for my son to go along with his new DS, but I haven't played it yet, so I can't comment on it.  I need to get this Ouendan everyone talks about.  Oh, I also need to get Trauma Center, Phoenix Wright, and Viewtiful Joe after Christmas during the dreaded gaming drought.  THose are games I wanted, but didn't consider mandatory.  Next up in purchases are Mario and Luigi and Animal Crossing.
