9: Animal Crossing

When something like MS Paint has more functionality..

Goombas 9: Animal Crossing

Creating your own textures in a game like Animal Crossing should now be considered mandatory. There's no better feeling than having your friend get off the train in your village, only to be immediately greeted by 5 combined sign posts detailing how he enjoys the company of a certain male organ. Sure, it takes one 20 minutes to draw that specific phallic object, but when you see the look on his face, you know it's all worth it. It gets even better when they run up to the sign to change, only to be notified that visitors cannot change the signs. Beautiful.

Thanks to the handful of readers who read my review and notified me that items can be picked up (in the menu) simply by pressing the left shoulder button. I never saw that in the instruction manual, and I haven't yet checked to see if it's even there, but it has made item arranging considerably easier. If you've got anything you'd like to say regarding the game or this strip, orlando@planetgamecube.com
