Animal Crossing: City Folk for the Nintendo Wii is probably the Animal Crossing game that I have played the least out of all the games in the series. It’s not that I don’t like the game. I just felt like the controls were a bit awkward, and I noticed a lot of elements from Wild World (including the music) were re-used, which made the game seem a port versus a brand new game. This game did reintroduce old holidays as well as introduce some new ones, though, which I enjoyed. The main thing I did not like about this game is the grass wear. This feature was suppose to help you create “paths” over the areas you frequently walked in, but as everyone who has played the game knows, it just looks HIDEOUS! I remember playing and getting so pissed off because I could literally see the grass melting away as I walked.
With all that being said, this game is still a lot of fun, and I enjoy it a lot. I figure it has probably been 3 or 4 years since I played. When my game loaded, I had the bedhead to prove it!
I checked my mailbox and read letters from some of my friends. Considering I haven’t played in so long, I’m surprised anyone sent me anything!
I popped into my house to see what I had going on. My house is still quite small, but I was happy to see my entire Creepy Series on display! This series was distributed by Nintendo in 2012 as DLC, and I was really happy when it came out! This is probably my favorite set in the entire game.
I wandered around my town for a bit before furthering my New Year’s Day activities, because I could barely remember what my town looked like. It was nice to get reacquainted, though I cringe at the thought of the grass dying as I play. The controls felt really weird to me, too, but that’s probably because playing with a Wii Remote and Nunchuk just doesn’t flow with this game.
I reached town hall and chatted up Tortimer, who wished me a Happy New Year and gave me a commemorative 2016 shirt. Check it out!
As always, Tom Nook was exploiting his business on the bulletin board.
After hanging out with Tortimer, I headed south to Tom Nook’s shop, and was surprised to see that I only had Nookway. I can’t believe I never spent enough money to get Nookington’s, which is the final expansion of Tom Nook’s store. Wow, I really have slacked when it comes to playing this game!
I chatted up every single villager I could find, but no one really told me how long I was gone. They said stuff like this instead:
Oh well! Maybe when I am finally done paying off my house in Wild World, I will play this game a bit more. That’s it for New Year’s Day in City Folk. Next up is New Year’s Day in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Bye for now!
