My gate will be open in 5 minutes. That is all.

Cool.  I'll be playing tomorrow around early evening EST, so I'll let the people know when my gate's open specifically. Bring your flowers  ;D

I'm going to start a female character soon so that I can put more furniture, as well as see any dialogue changes. I don't want to let go of the Gracie furniture I have now. That's why I've kept my Nook n Go, so I can sell and get out of debt faster.

*cues "November Rain"*

Coming close to a year since I've played; what a ride. Out of the 10 starting villagers, I have 4 left. Angus just moved out without giving me a chance to talk him out of it...  :'(

I finally had the UFO drop in my town, but I didn't know what to do. Shoot it down?

I'd like to take the time to announce my "Cash for Flowers" program. Its simple really. All you have to do is A)Mail me flower packets B) Drop off flowers if you see my gate's open or vice versa.

You'll be well compensated. If you give hybrids or carnations, you'll be extra-compensated  8)

Feeling extra spry...

^Staring into the rain clouds.

^Well, she is a bit citrus-like don't you know?

^Looks she made her mind up long time ago.

^Another shot of coolness, dogiefied.

This set brought to by the late Christopher Wallace. NSFW.

^It makes you wonder what Blathers does when you're not around...

^This is a disturbing trend...

^Looks like Derwin is moving on. Why'd he leave?

^...And you eat 'em! I've read Little Red Riding Hood. I know how you do your thing.

Snake skin down to the floor, ya dig?

^Marina reveals that her daily existence consists of fear and paranoia.

^Replace 'lonely' with 'horny.' Which they both are!  :D :-* *crickets*

^He then proceeded to tell me to "Use bombs wisely!".

^Tangy and Moe look onward as I buried a great evil...or just a pitfall for the unsuspecting animal.

Para bailar la bumpa...

After this horrible travesty, the lack of DS-ness was unbearable. I went to Craig's list, ebay, hit up my friends for a reasonably priced used DS-lite, but was able to pick up one up at a hobby shop of all places, for $80 bucks just recently.

Sadly, I'll still have to re-buy NSMB and Ninja Town  :'(

Getting this thread back on track, I want to get the people's input on two matters:

A) Top five DS accessories, (best screen protectors, best carrying case, earbuds, etc)
B) Top five DS games of 2009 so far. Yes, Zelda isn't that far off, but I've been missing out for the last few months...

Oh yeah, thanks for the tip DrewMG  8)

Rollin' down the street...

^Pave is a little too happy about "candy." Sure Pave, I got your "candy..."

^Do you mean sticky icky "candy?".

^Someone needs to admit they have a problem...

^Vesta had too much "candy." But at least she didn't overdose...

Hit 'em up, hit 'em up!

^Rodeo is happy that his medical marijuana plants are growing in winter...

^True story. Marina was the first female, not to mention the first octopus on the wrestling team. She was undefeated thanks to her dreaded grip which pinned and choked opponents mercilessly.

^Eh, because meatloaf just doesn't roll off the tongue like beefcake.

^Festivale, or Carnavale. With special guest Pave, aka the drugster. More on this bird next time.

The author defends writing the review when he did during his playthrough, stating quite matter-of-factly that if the game can't draw your attention within 4 hours of play, it doesn't deserve to get reviewed.

Fixed. Call it something else. Make it a blog entry, a rant. But don't call it a review.

One of the underlying assumptions I have about game reviews, is that the reviewer finished the game to completion(With the case of online multiplayer, MMO's, play through the game modes as much as possible). Is that too much to ask? Should all game reviewers just stop playing the moment they feel bored, write what they have, and call it a review?

I like this comment.

"Review" is commonly reserved for completed games, while "Impressions" applies to incomplete play-throughs. While the disclosure at the end is nice, titling this post as a "review" is a bit misleading.

And this is from a poster who liked it this...string of words and phrases...

P.S I did see the score upon further inspection, so I take that back at least.

Djunknown, you're missing a couple of fish which are no longer available, is that correct? Do you want the golden rod?

I'm missing one river fish I haven't looked up yet, and the Napoleon fish. As tempting as it is for me take one, it would feel hollow taking something I haven't earned... :'(

An incomplete review about Muramasa.

Straight to the point:

Disclosures: This game was obtained via publisher and reviewed on the Wii. Approximately 3.5 hours of play were devoted to the single-player mode, and the game was not completed. There are no multiplayer modes.

The bolding is the author's emphasis.

Now I don't know a lot about the game in question (yeah, I know, bad Djunknown!), but what I do know is that not playing a game to completion is not a review. It can be impressions, previews, hands-on, whatever. But not a full review.

To top it off, it shows up on Metacritic. I double checked the original review to look for a number or letter score, but found none. But on reading Metacritics small italics:

If a critic does not indicate a score, we assign a score based on the general impression given by the text of the review.

So....uhhhh...double fail?

Spread love, its the Valencia way...

^Sarahah almost spit on me...

^Fleece comes over a visit. The pitfall says hi.

^Me and Dr.Fleece hanging out at the beach side. Shouldn't the beach be frozen?

^Rob from Onette, and unamed girl check out the winter wonder land from the inside. It just might be colder than Toronto...

The post, it is to laugh...

^She thinks Valencia has a delivery serviced comprised of pro wrestlers.

^Me and the mayor hanging out on the new bridge. It came out like magic!

^You see Rolf, you can't get teh girlz if you call them bitch, to their face you need tact.

^ I had to take a massive dump. At least they had the courtesy to look away... I did apologize for the smell.

*Stripper pops out of a cake*

Happy birthday, Mr.Dreamcast....

I wish I knew. Maybe I'm the star of some show that I don't know about...

^See what I mean? This is what happens when Cannabis and LSD collide....

^Good riddance to bad rodents! Though I can't lie, Montreal is a lovely city.

^I still have this fish to this day. I don't have a name for it though...

^Brewster keeping it coo' even when K.K Slider is jamming.

I'm not even going to get a thank-you for giving you the last fossil you needed?

I'm missing one more fossil, its one those that in a stand like the Peking Man. Don't know which one I'm missing, but if you get that one, I'll thank you... :D

ON that note, I could use a Napoleon Fish.

I think that by now, the most dilligent of AC players should be done with all that needs to be donated, save for the art museum. I expect to see gold nets and gold fishing rods soon.

My town is officially in a drought. Maybe I need a rain dance? Someone have a charm that makes it rain?

Brought to you!

^Well, at least the pink matches her ears!

^Didn't think it was that type of town...

^Don't know what Angus did, but I heard he's one kinky bull...

^No Bella, that's just the LSD doing its magic. The red eyes prove it!

First off, welcome back Kairon! Were you in the witness protection program or something?

It'll definitely have a different feel than the its predecessor, so I'm cautiously optimistic. After-all, Capcom proper does have some experience with the genre.

There's no money to be had from parents. No chance to sue/blame wealthy corporations= NO SALE.

Investigators said the boy left while his parents were sleeping by stealing the keys out of his mother's purse. He told officers that he was going to a friend's house.

An addendum to the editorial I put up a little while ago. Basically, its not a attack at Nintendo directly, but on NoA. As the author notes in the beginning:

Although I wasn't totally sold on the Wii at first, at this point in its life cycle, all of my initial gripes with the system (weak online, storage space issues, limited 3rd-party line up) have more or less been fixed. Even if they weren't, the console's library would still be a better fit for me than what the other home consoles have going on right now. The PS3/360's focus on 3D "realistic" graphics, Hollywood action movie-style scenarios, and online competition just isn't for me. Sure, the 360 and the PS3 each have seven or eight exclusives that I truly love, but that's nothing compared to the over thirty Wii games that I consider "must-own" titles.

Then we get to the nitty gritty:

Now, I don't want to duplicate too much of what Jim said in his article, but I do need to start off by restating the most obvious problem with NoA: they lie, and badly. Of all the "in defense of Nintendo" blogs and comments I've read over the years, I've never heard this point disputed. NoA figureheads like Reggie, Cammie, and Denise come off as untrustworthy car salespeople at best, and underhanded politicians at worst. They are liars, and we know it.

A few more choice quotes:

NoA won't publish risky, potentially unprofitable games like Fatal Frame IV, Captain Rainbow, Trace Memory 2, Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, Mother 3, Disaster: Day of Crisis, and many others, because they care more about the bottom line than they care about distributing art. Where NoJ tries to make enough money so they can make more games, NoA only publishes games so they can make more money. That's the fundamental difference between an artist and businessman, or in this case, an art dealer.

What do you think Nintendo of Europe thought when Reggie publicly dissed Disaster: Day of Crisis just after it launched in the UK? If someone who worked for NoE had said that, you can bet your ass they would have been fired that day. Not so with Reggie and the gang. The phenomenon smacks of something I call "the Michael Jackson effect." Really, who's going to tell Reggie that he comes off like a phony who could give a rat's ass about what Nintendo really stands for? Not someone who wants to keep their job, that's who.

I write this article not out of malice, but out of genuine nerd-concern. As you've probably figured out, I love Nintendo of Japan. Although a lot of people in America seem worried about the direction they're headed in, I'm not concerned at all, because they are still focused on putting games and gamers first. The problem with Nintendo and their public face all falls on Nintendo of America, who seem determined to put up barriers between Americans and the products of Nintendo of Japan.

So what do you think? Is NoA part of the problem? Did NoA make the right call by not releasing Captain Rainbow, Disaster: Day of Crisis and so on?
