Club Tortimer


Usually, Club Tortimer is the worst part of Animal Crossing. Well, “worst” in the sense that it’s mostly useless. It’s just the functions of the regular, single player island, with the added features on internet lag and some jerk-off running around scaring away the bugs and fish you’re trying to catch, or intentionally fucking with you during medal challenges.

I checked it out again today as a way of killing time. As you can see, I actually had a good amount of fun just goofing off with a few random folks. At least, until a disconnection error popped up and kicked me back to my town before I could bring back the new fish I had just discovered. Either way, I still made out with about 150,000 bells in wildlife, so it wasn’t a total loss.

  1. Animal Crossing looks like a lot of fun, but then I often hear that it has its downsides. I’ve always wanted a singleplayer game that could maintain the longevity of a multiplayer game, but I’ve never really found one. I played thousands of hours of Jedi Academy, for instance. That game was (still is?) basically intricate and fun lightsaber/force combat duels or group matches mixed at the same time with a sort of in-game chatroom and social experience. I don’t think anything really compares to it, which is why I’ve always wanted a new Jedi Knight game and some decent internet that would allow me to play online. It was the best fucking online experience I’ve ever had. I’ve spent a lot of time with a few other multiplayer games over the years. How much time do you reckon you’ve spent with AC?

  2. According to my 3DS records, I have spent 213:11 playing Animal Crossing. About 100 hours longer than anything else on my 3DS.

  3. Very nice. I think the most I’ve made of an ongoing singleplayer game is some 100 odd hours. Then, I did play FFX and FFVIII several times with most all of the sidequests… That takes a while. Also played a lot of RE4, 5, and MGS 3. ANYWAY…

    I really should get a DS… Animal Crossing sounds great, and it seems like a lot of Japanese stuff I like has ended up moving there from consoles.

  4. Yeah, it’s a real nice system. Lately it’s all been AC, Resident Evil: Revelations multiplayer and Shin Megami Tensei IV for me.

    And hey, MGS3 and (kinda sorta) both Resident Evils are on the system too.
