Yvonne Blogs: Merge New Leaf and Happy Home Designer

Postby YvoCaro » Thu Sep 22, 2016 9:13 am

While we wait for a special Nintendo Direct about Animal Crossing, that is slated for November 2nd, I try to read between the lines at what we can expect about the upcoming update to New Leaf.

I noticed that they talk about adding amiibo functionality, but they also mention other new features. I am so curious what that will be? When Happy Home Designer was my everyday portion of Animal Crossing goodness, I wrote this letter to Nintendo, called “Please merge New Leaf and HHD“. Well, not really sent it. Even if I had, I don’t think Reggie would take the time out of his busy schedule to read it. But I do feel strongly that New Leaf could benefit greatly from some of the Happy Home Designer features. But, there’s nothing to do but wait!

Animal Crossing New Leaf November Update

Postby Jonah » Thu Sep 22, 2016 8:41 am

Animal Crossing New Leaf is getting a big update this November, even though the game is now 4 years old! An Animal Crossing Nintendo Direct is planned to be shown sometime in the autumn, and we already know that the update will feature Amiibo support, which one presumes means the game will enjoy new features too, as well as the ability to call animals to your town, even Hello Kitty.



I do wonder though what this means for the future of Animal Crossing on Nintendo platforms? Does this upcoming update suggest that Nintendo has no plans to release a new AC title soon, and if that's the case, will this update satisfy your thirst for new AC content? Would you have preferred an altogether New AC title for 3DS, Wii U, or even NX?

Dragon Quest VII

Postby Jonah » Thu Sep 15, 2016 9:28 pm


Since owning a PS Vita, I've extensively played two JRPG's and as a result, I've decided that I actually enjoy the genre. I've played Final Fantasy X almost to completion, and I played Persona 4 Golden up to the halfway point, but sadly the content of the game simply got too much for me to stomach as a Christian man. Anyway, tonight Dragon Quest VII will be made available on eShop and I may just take the plunge and download it to my 3DS console. I really enjoyed Dragon Quest IX on DS so I think my fond memories of that along with my JRPG experience gained from the Vita may be the justification I need in order to purchase this particular title.

Will anyone else on site purchase Dragon Quest VII?

Your thoughts wanted on Super Mario Run?

Postby Jonah » Thu Sep 15, 2016 4:30 pm



We all knew that Nintendo had plans for releasing software on iOS, but who would have guessed that Mario would show up on Apple's platform in such style. The game in style/graphical presentation is comparable to a AAA Nintendo title, and even though the game fits into the infinite runner category, the game looks fun and challenging. I personally think Mario's appearance on iOS is a great advertisement for Nintendo. Games like Super Mario Run will give gamers a taste of Mario quality, and I hope it will prove to be sufficient bate in order to win new gamers to Nintendo platforms.

What are your views on Mario finally making it onto iOS?

I bought Federation Force!

Postby Jonah » Wed Sep 07, 2016 8:26 am

Yesterday I decided to take the plunge, and purchased for myself a digital copy of Federation Force for 3DS. Why? Because the bad press and low sales drove me to put my hand in pockets and support a developer whose being punished simply because of irrational fan outrage.



Now of course, it's true that the game doesn't quite fit into the traditional Metroid Prime mold, but the game does look fun, and it does have that Metroid feeling about it. I sometimes wonder though if Nintendo's biggest mistake was trying to brand it as a Metroid title, due to the fact that they could have tried making the game a new IP, for then there would have been none of fan outrage. It has to be stated however that the punishment being dished out to this game is shocking, and I hope it will enjoy a reasonable amount of success in the future.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star Playthrough

Postby Jonah » Mon Sep 05, 2016 11:53 pm



I've had Paper Mario Sticker Star since its release in 2012, and I'm afraid to say that I didn't have time to play it at the time due to family and church issues, but it's now my current catch up game after I finally completed Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright on the weekend.

I am interested to know members' thoughts on this particular Paper Mario outing. It seems that the sticker mechanic is a serious cause of frustration for some, but I'm sure my thoughts on that and on other elements will develop as I continue to play through it.

Anticipating Paper Mario: Color Splash

Postby Jonah » Sat Sep 03, 2016 8:17 pm

I can't wait to play Paper Mario: Colour Splash. The game will launch in both the US and Europe on 7th October.

The Paper Mario franchise has always been a personal favorite franchise of mine. The first Paper Mario game I played was the original N64 title on Wii VC, and as soon as I finished that, I rushed onto Ebay in order to purchase The Thousand Year Door on Gamecube. Super Paper Mario on Wii was somewhat different in that it was a platform game crossed with an RPG, but I still enjoyed it. The Paper Mario franchise has struggled somewhat in a critical/review sense in recent times, but I can't wait to see Paper Mario in glorious HD. My anticipation level for this game is 9/10!
