Why am I so eager to spend $35 so I can pick up crap and do menial tasks with no goal in sight?

I mean, I am. I just have no idea why.

Neither do I. In fact, I REALLY can't wait. I pre-ordered the US release!
No way I'm waiting 3 more months...

So anybody pick up the US release?

Much better than the GC one. More crap to do and see, and online really, really improves things.

I just got it a couple of days ago and was quite disappointed to see that no one has made a Monkey Island town tune yet. Other than that, the game rocks.

Totally whipping the PSP's arse. That's fantastic.

I feel like I'm going to be missing all the fun by not buying Animal Crossing now. Apparently everyone just received a new years card from Nintendo president Iwata, along with a free item.

Connecting Animal Crossing to the intarweb sure was a neat idea.

If I understand correctly you got a new years card from Iwata when you connected to the internet with Animal Crossing DS? So, basically, if you don't have the dongle or any other method, you're online getting part of the joy out of the game?

Well, I suppose so, but in that respect it's no different from any other game that also features a multiplayer mode...

I just started playing it. Gaming on my Nintendo DS is getting me back into enjoying gaming in general. Oh, I'm not doing any multiplayer stuff with it, yet.

Years of thinking I had "sophisticated" tastes in gaming, and you know what? So far I'm really enjoying this, for want of a better word "cute" game where you talk to animals. It's amazing, and oddly engaging.

Is anybody else playing this game regularly? I don't really know anybody who has a DS so I've no friend codes or towns to visit.

That was a nice touch, but some people are wary of checking their mailbox now after the Unusually-Heavy Red Tulip scare.
