Animal Crossing

Saturday, December 20, 2003

haven't played animal crossing for a while, my boyfriend is too caught up in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I gave it to him as a present (although he rather had Prince of Persia and it was me actually who wanted Kotor so badly ^_^) because he likes Star Wars so much and I like Rpg's. And he has a three week vacation so he deserves to spend his well earned spare time with something other (imo) than his beloved footie game Pro Evolution Soccer. The first week we both had equal time with the xbox controller, but as it was a present for my bf and all, I soon had to give up my time in front of the telly...hmm maybe we should get another tv (but where would we place it??). Of course there is still the pc and the gba SP but sometimes I would like to spend some time in my AC town or playing all those other games that are waiting for me. Not really complaining though, my boyfriend is willing to give up his time playing Kotor, after playing it for like, oh 10 hours straight? But then we would have a dilemma.. which game will I play? Should I try to explore the beautiful landscapes of Kotor some more, kill some bad Sith and do good to the world so my lightside points go through the roof? Or should I smash some heads in with Kilik in SC2? or.. ow you probably get te picture :D

But what was I saying? oh yes, Animal Crossing. I really love my town, it's just so time consuming and most of the time I miss out on all the good stuff 'cause of other things I have to do ('you do?' you wonder and yes sometimes I have other occupations which most of the time has something to do with games, I agree. That's the beauty of studying something like New Media whoopie) okay, right, back on topic...On one hand I like the real-time thingy of AC but on the other hand... like for instance: what will I do with a day like New Years Eve? wish my friends and family happy new year two hours before the actual start of it and tell them, sorry I need the tv and my gamecube, have to wish my animals a happy new year and don't wanna miss the fireworks in my AC town..., yes of course there is a possibility to time travel but I feel that as a little bit of cheating...
And I would like to catch some rare fish, but setting my alarm to six o'clock in the morning, so I could catch that one time thing? I don't think so, or I could just play in the night till six that would be a possibility of course... But see my frustration with that time thingy of AC?
hmm enough on Animal Crossing, I will share my frustrations and ramblings on it another time, now it's time for me to go to bed, playing a little game of Pokepinball, read another chapter in Fires of Heaven and maybe dream a little of what I'm going to buy in a store full of games and gadgets :) oh how I would love to go to Japan!!
