For the third time, and counting! (seriously though this is the third time I started a new ANCL file)
Well I can say that I'm probably not going to give this up as easily. Considering many of the games I have now I've either already beaten (Prof. Layton vs Phoenix Wright, Pokemon Y), am stuck in (Phoenix Wright: Justice for All, Persona Q), or am just replaying (Cry of Fear) I figure I could make a new ACNL file without having to worry about not playing it as often as I used to. Especially since I've lost interest in Team Fortress 2. But I'm probably not going to get bored of ACNL so easily, since I've got Bob (the purple crossdressing cat and my favorite neighbor) as one of my neighbors and I can start a whole new game with a whole new mission: fixing my town to perfection. Of course there's always been one part of the game I've always had trouble with, that being the real world-based clock.
For those of you who don't know (i.e. SalamenceCake
) the Animal Crossing series is a series of "life simulation" games where you can get away from the hardships of your life by taking part in the hardships of your in-game avatar's life like paying off Tom Nook (your realtor), donating to the museum, and even just doing stuff like helping your neighbors out to increase friendship with them. However, due to how the game uses an internal clock and real-world business times Tom Nook's shop and the clothing store doesn't open until 10 am, heck the regular stores don't open until 9 am, and several of your neighbors may not even get up until noon so a large part of the game is best played in the afternoon. Which makes people like me, who do everything they need to get done in the am, absolute hell. Not a bad mechanic, and on school days it's negatable, but it gets a bit annoying if you play your 3DS early in the morning rather than later in the day.
I guess all you can really do is wait. Or speed up the 3DS clock. But that's cheating, so I wouldn't recommend that.
