Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Postby Squirminator2k » Mon Jun 17, 2013 5:15 am

Is anybody else playing New Leaf right now? I've been playing since launch and I'm absolutely in love with it.

If you're at all interested, my 3DS Friend Code is 5043-1877-6294. Add me, let me know your code, and maybe we can visit each other's villages (or at least race in Mario Kart 7).

If you have a credit or debitcard and room on your 3DS's SD card you can buy it from the eShop for $35.

Indeed - I was surprised to find (given it isn't advertised as compatible) that my Visa Debit card worked (the 3DS just assumed it was a credit card). Nice!

I agree. It's never seemed like the sort of game I'd like. The (for me) anomaly of Worms aside, I mostly like linear games - I don't really like when there are a massive multitude of things that I could do and I have no bloody idea how to choose which one.

The only game in this genre that I've played is Enchanted Folk (or Magician's Quest if you're American) on the DS, a super-obscure Konami Animal Crossing clone by Konami that had no fanbase to speak of beyond a small clique on 4chan's /v/.

The most memorable part was how far it went to punish the player. If you reset without saving, you're forced to scrub a bunch of dirty toilets. If you cheat by changing the DS internal clock, you're once again brought to the toilet-cleaning screen - except this time, the dirt never, ever goes out. You either have to go back and change the time or scrub toilets forever.

Ugh, and I already hated the punishment in Wild World. Endless discussions with that mole. 80% of the time it was my battery running out or the game crashing on its own anyway so on top of your lost progress you get this.

The other 20% were mostly to finally get the emotion I wanted from that awful comedian guy. I. really. just. wanted. my. character. to. laugh. in. multiplayer. mode. SERIOUSLY. Discovering everything that is to discover in Animal Crossing takes a life time anyway. Not necessarily a bad thing except when you figured out how things work and simply have to rely on luck to finally get what you came for.


Also after getting Let's go to the City on the Wii and discovering it was somewhat the exact same game as Wild World with minor changes, is it safe to assume buying a 3DS just for New Leaf isn't worth it? The series is, in certain instances, more work than fun as well. You'd have to play it every day to prevent villagers from leaving, flowers from wilting, weeds from invading your town, things that led me to set my clock back at some point of not having played it for a week or two again, effectively screwing with real-time events and the requirement of setting the clock back to the real date day by day. The real time events are utterly pointless without resetting the clock every once in a while anyway - did you honestly take your DS to the New Year's Eve party and played Animal Crossing while everyone else was counting down the time till New Year? I did not.

That was horrible. I also have to say the first hours of getting used to the game and slightly increasing your house were the very best experience to receive from Animal Crossing, so inevitably, no new Animal Crossing will be able to give me that same experience again.

In all honesty, I don't mind this kind of thing. It's pretty hilarious for a game that's normally so happy and carefree to screw you over this way.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koHO9vN6t4I This Animal Crossing-type game had Shigeru Miyamoto working on it, and what made it different from AC was that at the beginning of the game, everyone hates you and you have to slowly gain their trust. It never got a fan translation and there were never plans to bring it to the west, because it was "too weird". Meanwhile Katamari got released outside of Japan and became popular despite being (or perhaps because it is) the video game embodiment of "wacky zany Japan".

I only have a DSi with Wild World, but one of my friends has New Leaf and she's been obsessed with it. I did manage to pry her 3DS from her long enough to try it out. She had Streetpass turned on when we were at a convention and it gathered info for about 30-40 people's houses which you could then go and visit. I thought that was a pretty cool feature, but I don't think I'd be going out to buy a 3DS just for this game or anything. I'm not too keen on the 3D feature and that was kind of the point of the 3DS :/
