Animal Crossing...Crossed Off!

Yesterday after work, I drove my little self down to GameStop and touched base with something I've been dreaming of having since it was announced--Animal Crossing:  New Leaf.

If you're unfamiliar with what this is...I don't want to oversell's the most important thing to ever happen in the history of the Nintendo 3DS.  Maybe everything.  How can that be?  It's a real-time game where you move into a town full of animals and live your life.  As mayor.  You want to catch bugs and fish all day?  Fine.  You want to grow hybrid flowers?  Good luck!  You want to collect fossils and fine art, clothes and furniture, umbrellas and gems and all kinds of things?  You must be me.  

Seriously.  I'm such a whore for collecting things in video games.  It's a sickness.  Gotta catch 'em all.  

I moved into New Pork with my character, Trigg, who quickly was mistaken for being the mayor.  Two days in, I'm still settling into the TENT they gave me to live in while I wait for my house to be built.  Umm...a tent.  Some welcome!  

But I got one of my favorite neighbors in my town, as you can see:  SNAKE!  It's pretty awesome, considering the sheer number of animals that could have been there upon my arrival.  So...I'm obsessed.  Absolutely obsessed.  Call AA.  Or is it ACA?  Either way...I need a twelve-step program.

If you're keen on joining me, my friend code is up there.  Please share yours with me in the comments and let me know you've added me.  

Thanks, kids!

YAYYYYY! Really wish I'd decided to pick up my copy locally rather than have it shipped to me, but you know what they say about hindsight.

Anyway, you know I'll be hitting you up to visit your town--or have you visit mine--as soon as I get things up and running.

Until then, ENJOY :)

Hello hello, always looking for more fun, open-minded people to play this game with, so as a fellow gaymer I extend my FC to you. Its 3153 3378 2198.

Thanks Eddie! I'm adding you now. Done and done! Hope to see you in my town! Do you open your town gates at a regular time? Also...what's your town fruit? Looking for any furniture in specific?

I tend to get back into the house and open gates or visit others around 3:30-4pm EST. I have apples as my town fruit and picked up coconuts, bananas, pears, cherries, and oranges from various friends that should bloom soon. Not looking for specific furniture yet, just finding one or two items that seem to be part of a small set that I like for now.
