My Animal Crossing wish: can we have the grid system back?

ghearoid

4 months ago

I guess I was used to the grid back in the day, but I recently booted up my old GameCube Animal Crossing town and it triggered motion sickness. I don't want it coming back. I seem to remember that it was only there because of technical limitations, not for artistic reasons.

You can pay £20 to invite KK Slider and Tom Nook to your Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

ghearoid

5 months ago

I've been playing the beta for the last few weeks and so far the game has given around 850 tickets. I invited KK because he is awesome, but haven't bothered with the Nook man. KK just strums his guitar, that's it. No song on Saturday or anything.

The "grind" as such is just normal AC business, fetch fruit, bugs, fish etc. or craft furniture. I play a bit at breakfast, then a bit in the evening. Haven't felt any need to spend money in the app.

More than half of Destiny 2's console sales were digital downloads

ghearoid

6 months ago

I don't know why people get so upset over digital sales. Games that are likely played every day suit the digital format.

As for resale...I see that Cex currently offer £1.30 for the first Destiny, £1.20 for last year's FIFA. A lot of these simply don't hold their value. May as well get them digital and enjoy them.

I skipped the Wii U because I didn't really enjoy the Wii. I watched E3 last month and thought "yep, you've convinced me" so I got a Switch and it's great to be back with a Nintendo home console. Mario Kart looks awesome in HD and I find Zelda astonishing.

Once the Switch gets Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing I'll play nothing else. \o/

The Advance Wars games are my all time favourites,. I've spend hundreds of hours playing them and I still play the first one on my GBA Micro. I would love a new one and it would be a perfect fit for the Switch - Advance Wars Switcheroo!

Hopefully, the imitation games do well enough to spur a new release.

EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

ghearoid

12 months ago

On my PS3 it's pretty much all digital. The recent sales have meant that most games have been £3 - £4 for me to download, often cheaper than buying a used copy and I love the convenience.

On my 3DS it's a mixture. I buy digital for titles I know I won't ever trade such as Mario Kart and Animal Crossing. Otherwise I buy physical such as Fire Emblem and Professor Layton as I like my little collection.

It's a nice extra, but I kept all my favourite GC games so I doubt I'll be paying out again for them.

As for Animal Crossing, remember when some if us imported the game from Canada and gave each other different fruit and gifts using that Tom Nook code thingy? Fun times. ;)
