Good for nintendo. I do not have a Wii U yet, but I want one to play Pikmin 3.

I am really waiting on another kirby game. Kirby is my favorite nintendo character.

Stock rising in anticipation of Pokemon X&Y, Mario 3D world, Mario Party (3DS), Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Brothers.

These are out or about to be out and people have taken notice. These people will gain money the day Pokemon releases.

I'm still playing it on the side of SMT4 and Dark Souls on PC

It's like a good way to relax after dying a horrible horrible death on those two games...

Edit: I got Animal Crossing for my GF, might have to get my own though since she won't be done with it for a while (doesn't really ever end).

Agreed just for the avatar.

Alternating between Animal Crossing New Leaf and Shin Megami Tensei IV is an activity I will look back upon years later and smile, and it's so easy because I've got ACNL digitally. Summer 2013 has been an amazing time for gaming, so long as you've got the proper tastes.

I've been playing Animal Crossing... and I still dont know where the addiction is :/

If anything, I've only played it for an hour at a time because everything happens in real time :/

Am I missing something?

IF you're asking "Is there a right way to play animal crossing"

You won't find it, I doubt even the creators can tell you that.

A lot of people are puzzled by Animals Crossing's popularity and "addiction". I was thinking about buying it but I have seen many gamers on forums saying that they got bored after a few hours. The game becomes monotonous and aimless for them eventually. For some it happens after a few hours while others lose interest after 50 or 70 hours. Yet others clock in more than 150 hours and are still going strong. I guess it is for people who can set their own objectives and goals to achieve and enjoy minigames. It does not looks like it is for everyone including me.

I find people who grew up in the SNES - Genesis era like this more than the Gamecube Xbox PS2 era
They like mission objectives as opposed to older audience that are use to
You're here
playing this game
go play this game

Either way is fine, both have their own respective charm.

If you haven't already try going to the island after 7:00pm. Catching the rare bugs is where you will get the bulk of your money. Having large amounts of currency can really open up the game for you as far as house expansions and public projects. Donate everything you catch to the museum, and buy everything the stores have to offer; this will increase the speed of store expansions and give you a hefty catalog for finding things to furnish your castle (you can eventually get a castle). It can't hurt to get the strategy guide or a least look at the wiki pages to look for things to do. The game is deceptively deep.
