On Happy Home Designer (and future AC titles)

Posted by: | on July 30, 2015

So, after a bit of debate and a very close poll, I’ve decided the best way to do it is to actually post the actual content on my main website. Anything related to New Leaf will still be put here, but due to how differently Happy Home Designer works along with the fact that future games will involve a lot of re-getting items, the best way to do it for easier access and organization purposes is simply to have them on the main site–the coding would need a lot of rework otherwise.

The template page where I will have general statistics and screenshots has already started to be set-up and will be expanded upon as I find out more about the game.

That said, all posts will still be crossposted to the Tumblr blog.

[JPN] Nintendo Village – An Update for Splatoon!

Posted by: | on July 23, 2015

So, while the North American Nintendo Village doesn’t update too often, the one in Japan actually updated for Splatoon and in honor of the first and second Splatfests that finished up this month in North America, I thought it’d be fun to do an entry checking it out! They’ll apparently only be around for a limited time so if you’re interested, I’d recommend going sooner rather than later! The dream address is 0000 – 0100 – 0017. Below, you’ll find some of the fun pictures I took!




Those are just some of the cool exterior changes :) Meanwhile, the room upstairs inside the house has been Splatoon-ified as well:

You can get the patterns for the shirts, faceboards, portraits, carpet, and paths all from Wendell :)

Finally, while I’m not sure if I’ll try starting up a bunch of Dream Village entries or not (mostly due to what happened in my last entry), if I do, does anyone have preferences on the text blogs like I usually do or videos? And if the latter, would you want talking or no? Let me know!

I messed up.

Generally, I’ve been pretty good at remembering to change the date back before I load the game up. Part of why I found a permanent end date was so I would easily remember what to change it to so the fact that I thought I had changed it already and hit continue and it happened to be exactly 5 days from the permanent date is just a complete punch in the face.

Like I’m sitting here and I’m upset and frustrated and I’m not sure if I want to punch something or cry. It just sucks. It really sucks. The only “saving grace” is it wasn’t one of my top 7-8 villagers. I adore Marcie and I’m still pretty upset, but if someone did have to move, I would say her and Julian (and maybe Molly) would be the ones that I’d be able to get past while others would just… make me never want to play again. And like, I’m angry with the whole moving mechanic and the fact that I can’t save villagers (and plus this means Marcie decided she wanted to move the day I chose my permanent date and yet never said anything the multiple times I did play), but it’s my fault if anything.

And there was nothing I could do–I booted it up and was hit with “Hey it’s the 12th oh and someone is moving sorry!” and even though I turned it off in a last ditch effort despite the fact that I knew it already saved, it meant nothing. And I even lost all the effort I put into getting all sparkly flowers because lets be honest I am never again watering all my flowers.

I shouldn’t have to worry about anyone else moving in as long as I actually remember to keep the date the same and don’t clear out (or I suppose I should just disable) StreetPass :/ For now, I’ve just covered her house in flower patterns:

But I’m still feeling pretty down about it.

She sent a letter:

And if she was so lonely, she should have stayed and mentioned it one of the several times I did have the date right

I already had her photo so I didn’t take the one from the letter, but bleh. The whole situation sucks.

The whole reason I turned the game on was because I was getting so excited about Happy Home Designer and was actually thinking of streaming Dream Suites today and working on my badges some more, but now I just have no motivation to do so again.

I’d be tempted to move Ruby back in if I could, but:
1. Marcie is the first to move since Ruby moved out so due to that stupid mechanic, I can’t have Ruby come back.
2. Who knows where a house will go if I moved in any of my other favorite villagers. I had to place so many temporary things in order to prevent certain villagers moving places and moving anyone now would just be a complete risk.

So I’m in a lose-lose situation and not much I can do. And I don’t have anyone to blame but myself. At least my Dream Address still shows how it was supposed to be. Too bad I no longer live in it :(

The Final Dream Suite Update

Posted by: | on April 7, 2015

So, my town is done. While I have a few personal goals, when it comes to my town and island, there isn’t anything left to do. Below will be some of my favorite pictures plus a video of my full town tour.





Also, a big thank you to everyone who has visited! I was very surprised to see this when I updated:

And something not featured in the video:

I finished decorating my island! Yay!

Finally, a quick Q&A:
Does this mean no more updates?
No. While I will no longer be progressing date-wise in the game, I still have over 100 Dream Villagers I’d like to visit and now that I will no longer have to worry about villagers moving (due to no longer changing the date), hopefully I can start working on getting up one every so often.

I also plan to update for Happy Home Designer and if any brand new DLC ever gets added. Plus, any future Animal Crossing games will probably be here as well!

Plus, I still have some personal goals I want to complete :3 So still a few updates that could come eventually.

A Small Update!

Posted by: | on April 1, 2015

I am currently writing up my feelings on the Nintendo Direct over on my main website, but I wanted to say I’m looking forward to writing some fun stuff about Happy Home here when it comes out!

Also, my final Dream Suite update should be up within the next 2 weeks. I don’t know if I’ll get all the badges by then, but I will try!
