I was feeling a bit under the weather today, so naturally I turned to video games as my source of entertainment to keep my mind off of how crappy I was feeling! First up, I played Animal Crossing: Wild World!
When I first started playing, I avoided the dreaded “insurance salesman”…
I shook a space station out of a tree…
And Octavian gave me some great insight!
I also meet a new villager in my town, Bree the mouse!
Of course, since I was shaking trees, I got stung by bees several times. Kabuki not-so-kindly told me how terrible I looked.
After insulting me, he had the nerve to ask me if I could find him some green furniture! I knew I shouldn’t do him any favors, but Nookington’s just HAPPENED to have a froggy chair, so I begrudgingly went and bought it for him. To my surprise, he had this to say to me:
So for now, all is forgiven. Just don’t insult me any more, pal!
As I was doing some fishing, Octavian caught my attention. Apparently, he was very happy that he came up with a new nickname for me.
I took a break for a bit, then came back after 8 p.m. to catch a song by K.K. Slider.
After I wrapped up my day in Wild World, I decided to move on to Doubutsu no Mori. It was snowing yet again, and I had 3 pieces of mail to sort through! The first two were from the Farway Museum, telling me they had identified an Apatosaurus head and a Triceratops body. That should fetch me some nice cash! The third was my first letter from the Happy Room Academy, telling me my house was too small and narrow and that you could get injured if furniture isn’t used properly. What gives?!
Ignoring that rude letter, I went to Tanukichi’s shop. He had two tools today! One was a net, which I immediately bought. The second was… a shovel. ENOUGH WITH THE SHOVELS! He also tried to sell me some nasty wallpaper, but I wasn’t buying!
Since I was out and about, I stopped by the train station to hear Totakeke play his music.
Since I don’t have a radio yet, I can’t play his music in my house. I just stored it in my dresser for now.
I also noticed that I had a new villager on my map, so I ran to her house to meet her! This is Kizzu (Astrid). She is very colorful!
I collected some fruit, ran by the dump and police station, and headed back to Tanukichi’s shop to sell my goods. By the time I sold my fossils and other random items, I had enough Bells to pay off my first house loan! Excited, I ran to the post office and made my payment.
Afterwards, I went back to Tanukichi, who thanked me for my timely loan payment. He suggested we upgrade my house since mine is a little on the small side, and he allowed me to choose my roof color.
I’ll find out how much debt I have now once the expansion is complete! It should be done tomorrow.
Finally, I decided to play Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS. I love this game, but I haven’t shown it any love lately. =( I blame the fact that I am trying to pay off my houses in the other Animal Crossing games, plus the fact that I’ve been bouncing back and forth between a few other games. Anyway, a couple weekends ago I took my 3DS with me to Best Buy and I knew I had received some StreetPasses, which meant I had new homes in my Happy Home Showcase to browse. That was my main reason for loading up my game and playing tonight.
When I first came out of my house, I almost felt disoriented! I hadn’t played this game in so long, I kind of forgot what I was doing.
I ran into some of my villagers, who confirmed I had been gone for a long time indeed.
Why does it seem like longer than 4 months? I went into my house, which was decorated for Christmas… wow. These decorations are from LAST CHRISTMAS. At least I’m ready to go this season!
I felt guilty, so I walked around and talked to everyone I could find. I didn’t fix my bedhead, though. I had better things to do!
I headed up to the HHS, and Digby brought me in. I had 6 new houses to peruse, which was pretty cool! I even received a balloon from a person I had previously StreetPassed, and I saw an updated version of his home.
Afterwards, I decided to catch a song by K.K. Slider, as I had done in my other games. In a moment of total dumbassery, I completely forgot where I could find him! It took me a couple minutes to realize he was in Club LOL. Whew! Thought I was losing my mind there for a minute.
I was just about done playing, but I spotted Leif the Sloth sleeping behind a tree.
I then saved and exited the game, only to find out I had a notification! Why didn’t that load when I first played? I loaded the game up again and got a letter delivered to me by Pete, and look who was sleeping a little closer to my house!!
With that, I wrapped up my game playing for the night. See ya!!
