Long time no post! Yup, sorry about that! I started school so I’m really limiting myself to publish much less than before, I want to work harder and do better than last year.  Anyway, I’ve spent some time looking threw Tumblr for AC3DS news and wanted to show you guys some images. None are made by me, they are copied from Tumblr’s AC3DS tag page. So the only thing that I’ll be doing is publishing them here and commenting about them.

Starting off by showing you the Japanese Official Box art, you can see a male character with his secretary deciding what seems to be what ground object to place in their town, and speaking about those, further in the right side of the image you can see the most adorable neighbor (he looks like a fat chipmunk, aww!!) playing in a specimen playground toy, I don’t know what it’s called in English but I’m sure you know what I mean.

To the right we see a female character purchasing some chairs from the furniture store, water around the town with some islands and in the middle, a big tree that seems to represent the town somehow, as we see it here:

Where the character is planting it, and there are neighbors around clapping and cheering. If this image is of exactly what happens in the game (not some manual image that makes the game look further detailed) they have taken planting trees to a hole new level, with the sapling much more realistic.

Right here we see the female character in what seems to be in her office, working I guess. We can also see a portrait of Tortimer hanging over the wall, and also a clock hanging from it. Just in case you don’t know it yet; yes, your character will be the mayor of the town and will have a secretary with you at all times (let’s actually hope not literally at all times).

Being a mayor includes making decisions for your town, like choosing which type of town you could get, I was really surprised with this feature and also excited, which village would you choose?

And in this image we talk a little bit about character fashion, some of these outfits are new, just like tons of stuff in this game. But it’s not really the new stuff that interests me, it’s more the new features added in the game. Like the one where your character is taller, and for that you can buy not only accessories and shirts/dresses but pants or skirts and even shoes!!

This picture simply looks amazing, all the colors, the chairs, the blanket, the picnic basket, the female character drinking coffee on the go…!! This confirms Cherry Blossoms will stay in your town, probably during spring, that is great. But… uh oh! Barely at the top of the image, do you see kind of like a wasted path… maybe animal tracks come with the AC3DS version. I’ve never actually experienced them since I don’t have city folk, but I’ve heard people weren’t very happy with them, a town without grass… yikes! I really hope animal tracks aren’t included in the game.

AC3DS, for what we’ve seen gives us a completely customized town, you can add/remove/customize barely anything in this game, and as shown in this image, even our houses!! The first one looks like a kiddie look, next one on the top right looks like a cabin series house, left bottom seems like a futuristic one and, last but not least, looks like a house with a Japanese look!

And something I was truly happy about was the opening of new stores in town, even Brewster has his own store in this town that’s not in the museum (as shown the the top left image).

That’s all it for now, maybe I’ll add some other AC3DS post since I found these really fun to make, and the US version of the game isn’t coming out until 2013.

Hasta la vista! Stay tuned for more Animal Crossing Wild World and 3DS posts, stories, news… 🙂

Happy August!?!

Hey, hello, hi! Happy Summer xD

So since I will be on vacation all August I decided to do a mega post for everyone!!

So, probably in all August there is only going to be one post, and it’s probably going to be this one, since I am not coming back until the last days of August and I’ll need some rest before I even get back blogging. So this is the only post, and I want to make it long, hopefully interesting, and with some advertisements of blogs you can visit instead of mine.

Ladies and gentleman, please welcome; August’s only post! -.-

Part one: Contest Leak

Remember way back when I talked about a closing my blog for some days, to prepare it for some contest? So I have everything ready but I’m searching for alternatives to closing my blog, any ideas? So, anyway here’s a more detailed explanation of the contest.

I will hide 100 bell icons ( credits to Mayu) all over my blog that when you click on them they lead you to a sign like for example:

The objective is to get as close as my usa Animal Crossing town as possible, this way winning points.

There are signs with 20 miles (like the example), after that one there’s a 15 miles one, a 10 miles one, a 5 and lastly a welcome to usa sign, here are how I calculate the points:

  • Welcome sign= 5 points
  • 5 miles sign= 4 points
  • 10 miles sign= 3 points
  • 15 miles sign= 2 points
  • 20 miles sign= 1 point.

Every time you find a sign you must leave a private comment (just type in private comment anywhere) saying for example:

Private comment

I have found a sign worth __ points: (link image here)

And it’s simple, the user with most points wins! Of course there are prizes! 😀

Part two: a note to all my beloved friends!

I consider everyone that comes to visit my blog a friend, but this note goes especially to everyone who has commented on my blog, who has always been so nice to me… I think you know if you’re a very special friend to me, that’s why I won’t name you guys in this section, because I’d probably name a bunch of people 😛

I feel very, very happy just chatting with you guys, every time you guys leave a comment on my blog I smile, every time we wifi, or simply every time I know for sure all of you are there, supporting me if I do something wrong and always helping me so much! I love every one of you guys, we are the WordPress Animal Crossing Community!!!

Since I will be on vacation, I will not reply to comments or publish new comments on your guys’s blogs, but I promise that when I come back I will! xoxo!!

Part four: Ebatong

Welcome screen with Dotty, hiding behind the tree 😛

Hey there! She’s so cute yet she was alone so much time, I may have to create a second character in Ebatong to keep her company!

Maybe a mosquito could keep her company, haha, don’t worry, little one (I’m talking to my character, not the mosquito 😆 ) you’ll have a new roommate in no time!

What’ya say… catch of the night, stag beetle??

Okay, seems like I’m the catch of the day for Mr. mosquito -.-

No nets in the store!! Now how will I catch my mosquito? I wasn’t joking before, I want a mosquito as a pet!

I’m really impressed how in so many months, Ebatong managed to only have a few more weeds than usa in a week or so 😛

Gift #1 by Octavian

 

Gift #2 by Dotty

 

A note in a bottle!!

Gift #3  o_O Wait a minute, the note in the bottle from you aunt for some reason calling you Timmy, the 3 presents, Jemmaa… were you planning in escaping Ebatong with your aunt as Timmy?? You should be ashamed of yourself! 😆

Heh, this made me laugh and instantly think about Resetti! xD

Part Five: Extra Chapter

Yeah, since my blog is kind of “book” themed, I’ve decided to give it an Extra Chapter (that’s surely not the last one) so you will be seeing me publishing lots of new original stuff, projects, contests… including a project both Emma and I came up with and that we will be doing together, which I will not leak any information so you’ll just have to wait! I can only tell you the idea sounds very exciting and I am truly curious to see how it turns out!!

Part Six: Logo

I leave to all of you kind of the “long awaited” logo I made. There’s actually two of them and I don’t really know which one is the official, anyways here you are:

   

 

And here is the profile image of my blog’s gmail, that I actually really like how it turned out. Nothing special, I just like the effect it has 😛

 

 

Last part: Goodbye!

So, everything comes to an end, and this is me saying goodbye and until September everyone! Remember to try and catch plenty of bugs because almost everyone of them is available in July but especially try to catch those tarantulas, because it’s the last month you’ll be able to!!

So, I wish all of you an outstandingly amazing summer!! See ya’ later alligator, or… see ya’ soon raccoon 😆

How to… Catch Tarantulas and Scorpions: Step by step

Hello sweet pumpkins 😛 How’s summer going? Catching plenty of bugs, remember in August 42 of the 56 bugs in Animal Crossing Wild World are available to catch, including Tarantulas and Scorpions.

Since they’re the 2 hardest bugs to catch for most people, I decided to do a little step by step tutorial that will both help me and you to catch these nasty little bugs!

So let’s start by getting to know better these little (or big) bugs

 the little images of the bugs (only) are from strategywiki.org

Okay, so know that we know when and where to catch them, the bells they put in our pockets (or the occupation in our museum) we can try to catch them. Pay attention and listen to me when I say do NOT hold a net, if you do and the Scorpion or Tarantula sees you it will run to attack you!

Notes: These bugs will not appear when it’s raining/snowing or when the gate is open.

  1. WITHOUT holding a net I’d recommend  just plugging  in some headphones to our nintendo and start listening to our game, naturally, not inside any building, just outside. Meanwhile you can read something, write, play games without a lot of noise…
  2. Whenever you hear a bug sound pickup your nintendo and check if you see a Tarantula or a Scorpion, if you don’t but you still hear the noise, walk around very slowly looking for the bug, also keep your eyes open for other bugs that might have mistaken you with their sound. Remember, do NOT hold a net!!!
  3. If you have spotted your catch of the day, it’s time to spot their back. If you see a Scorpion, it’s easy, just look for its tail. And if you see a Tarantula it gets a little more complicated; try advancing slowly towards it (not holding a net) until it moves a bit, be careful not to scare it too much or it might end up running in the ocean/river. The opposite direction that it moved will be its back.
  4. Now, sneak up upon them from behind (where they can’t see you) and when you’re 100% sure they can’t see you bring out your net, advance just the right distance and…
  5. WAP! Swing your net and hope for the best!

Did you catch it? Did it run away, or did you run away? Even worst, did it sting you? Leave a response in the comments below! I will try to add pictures to this tutorial soon, whenever I spot one 🙂

If you didn’t catch it, don’t worry, there will be other times! So keep your heads up and hope for more, oh! and after you donate both bugs in the museum a surprise is waiting for you…

You can also try other methods showed in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_clvBgI2mic   I explained the easiest way that I know, but maybe you find easier one of the methods from this video. 😉

I really hope this helps you guys, the greatest of luck and… Happy Summer!!!

Happy 4th of July!!!

I wasn’t sure if I’d do this post but since I’ve got American blood in me I told myself “why not?” I don’t obligate anyone to read my blog or absolutely anything I publish so if there’s anyone against this day for some reason wait until my next post that will come soon or read about, if you haven’t already, the new exchange student who has come to town!

So, for those who don’t know, the 4th of July also known as Independence day is the day when the United States declared independence from Great Britain, in 1776.

On this day everyone goes out on the streets and trows tons of fireworks, parades and even political speeches because this day is also the national day of the United States!

But this blog is, after all, about Animal Crossing so I can’t go on and on with a post about the 4th of July, what I can do is mix both of these topics into a fun fan art, tell me what you think in the comments below:

So I really hope you enjoyed it and happy Independence Day!! Bye, bye!

Opening of the new page and category

AC:WW Exchange Students Page

Say hello to my empty down-left bed, where every month someone new will be moving in!

Chris has moved from my town, and what used to be his bed will be the “exchange student bed” so every month I will update the page “Exchange Students” with the information of a new student.

There will be a story that unites all students, that you’ll find out slowly when you read the characteristics of a few characters and, also, some students come with a story written by me.

Have any crazy or completely normal character you would like me to have? Request it, by saying a short description of how you want them to be, and if you want, the hair and face you would like them to have.

Warning: If I change something of your requested character, I’m really sorry, but I did it to fit him/her in with the story.

Check out usa’s first exchange student that has already been published in the “Exchange Students” page!!!

PS: I’ve never seen this on any blog, or have any sort of example to follow, this really just depends on the best I can do, so I’m really sorry if you spot some mistakes or don’t like how it’s turning out.

New category

Like I said before, some of the characters come with a story, so the story will be published in a category called “Student Stories”.  Please don’t expect a lot from this category, it’s very basic, and the posts in it will be pretty short stories (four paragraphs or so).

Since there’s no place to go…

…Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!

Haha, just me singing… (guess that’s two things to apologize about 😳 ) Sorry for the lack of posts, and since it’s been so long since my last post I’ve decided that this post is gonna be something new: an extra long PowerPoint!!! 🙂 Enjoy!!!

Let it snow, let it snow

Click on “let it snow, let it snow” to download the PowerPoint so that you can view it as many times as you want, or if you just want to see the slide shows you can see them here: (click to view larger)

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween everyone! Sadly in Wild World, Halloween is still not celebrated but I have something that will help everyone celebrate it… And I’ll tell you at the bottom of this post… or, will it disappear before you even read it??? 😆

You can see in this pic, what looks like an animal under a pumpkin mask, with a piece of candy in it’s hand, and a purple witch dress? He’s the “monster” of Halloween in City Folk, named Jack. As I don’t have City Folk I’m not really gonna say anything important here, but he is the Official Animal Crossing Halloween character! 😛

There is also another picture about Halloween in Animal Crossing that is unofficially made by Animal Crossing Comunity, here’s the picture:

This one says “Welcome” in big letters and in smaller letters it says “to AnimalCrossingComunity”. And we can see Wisp the ghost, a witch dressed character, a ninja dressed character and a mummy dressed character. We also see a grave yard (classic Halloween) and Jack! But there is one last thing we can see, something that can not be excluded in any Halloween picture, the full moon, eeeeek!

but I have something that will help everyone celebrate it… And I’ll tell you at the bottom of this post” And as this is the bottom of the post… I’ll tell your! 😆

To help you celebrate Halloween in Animal Crossing I have created 2 contests!!!

  1. Contest: Create a Halloween themed room!!! Get the spookiest furniture you have, dress your character and get started! Take a photo and link to it in a comment! 😀
  2. Contest: Create a Halloween montage like the wonderful one ACC did! (The picture above) It can include pictures of any type of Animal Crossing, as long as it includes pictures of Animal Crossing and Halloween!

Think you can do it??? Then get started!

Here are the prizes for both contests:

  • 1st prize -> 50,000 bells and mummy shirt with dressing.
  • 2nd prize -> 25,000 bells and a witch shirt.
  • 3rd prize -> 15,ooo bells.

Have a terrifyingly good Halloween!
