This is my most recent addiction. If anyone else has Animal Crossing: City Folk, feel free to add me to your friend roster, and then reply to this post with your code (so that we can visit each others towns, write letters, share items, etc).

Code: 1634-4759-9087
Town: Wenfork
Name: Mike

I know, Nintendo's code system is rather annoying...

  • I haven't been on it since December 26th. It's a good game, if you haven't played previous installments. Having said that, it is my fourth most played wii game (at 51 hours). How long have you been playing it for?

  • I have had the game for a little over a week now. According to the Nintendo Channel, I have been playing for roughly 30 hours; which just barely surpasses my New Super Mario Bros. Wii play time. At this rate, Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not be sitting on top for very much longer.

    PS. I also own the GameCube version of Animal Crossing. I never played the DS version, though.

    I played it for 50 something hours total, over the course of a month. I think my problem with it was that i played the DS version to death (i had 75% of all bugs/fish, all the fossils, biggest house, tons of money, the perfect house (for my tastes anyway)), so starting all over again just didn't seem the same. Plus every new addition seemed flawed in someway, like the auction house (One bid, once a week, on one item, and you don't even get to see how the biddings going? It may aswell just be a raffle...). But i guess seeing as you skipped the DS version, the whole online thing is totally new to you.

    SN: Did you know City folk was given the horrendously cheesy name: "Let's go to the city!" Here in the UK?

    Honestly, I rarely visit the city myself. There is not nearly enough to do there, but since I am accustomed to the GameCube version, I don't feel as though the overall experience is hampered in any way.

    Also, Shampoodles is a ripoff. I will simply change my Mii from the Mii Channel.

    Actually, I registered on there a few nights ago. I posted here because I would rather play with people that I have a pre-existing acquaintanceship with. That goes for most of the Telltalers.

    In Japan, it is called Machi e ikō yo: Dōbutsu no mori (Let's Go to the City: Animal Forest). I guess that the North American localization team was the only one that decided to change the words around.

    PPS. I only payed 20 bucks for Animal Crossing: City Folk. So, my expectations were rather low to begin with.

  • My kids still play it often... I have to say though it doesn't hold my interest for long..

  • I need more friends on that game D8

    ...


    I'm just procrastinating right now 8D

  • I played online with Haggis earlier today. I was a bit surprised to see that, when I first arrived, the sun had already set in his town (Scabb), as he lives in a far away time zone (Netherlands). I wonder if my on-screen persona will suffer from any jet lag effects as a result of this...

    Anyway, I wish that more people still played this. The more players that you interact with, the more possibilities will open up, it seems. The animal villagers have even been known to gossip about other Nintendo WFC users. I know that mine are saying a lot of stuff about Haggis now.

    In other words, be careful what you tell your animal villagers. It may get back to another player on your friend roster (if you have any).

    EDIT: I am still trying to figure out who Scot from Treehut is. Several animal villagers are raving about his designs. One of Haggis' other friends, maybe?

  • @Mike Haley said: EDIT: I am still trying to figure out who Scot from Treehouse is. Several animal villagers are raving about his designs. One of Haggis' other friends, maybe?


    I think it's some sort of default town. My animals have been talking about designs from Babylon since day one, but I don't know about that town.

    Also, surely there are other people who play Animal Crossing City Folk on here? After all, the more, the merrier!

  • If I get a Wii I'll join you all.

    Maybe. Or at least a friend of a friend of a friend (and so on). Check you designs in Mabels, you may find he's added a few.
