Well, I've got it. I'm not entirely sure what to think of it yet.. I just managed to buy my house on my very first day, which well, makes it seem like I just completed the game in about two hours.

I'm sure there's much more to it than I'm seeing right now, guess I have to be patient. It's wonderfully charming though, not quite the levels of Earthbound, but nice enough.

I want my little Elf guy to learn self-defence though, because those police dogs don't look like they'd do much to prevent crime, especially giving me all the lost and found items.

Can I become a superhero? I'll have to design my own costume, naturally.

I'm finding the game rather refreshing. I don't play it loads, just a quick go every day and it has charmed me.

Just trying to complete collections and playing NES games.

I find it a very enjoyable game so far, not quite as wonderful as Harvest Moon (which is just fantastic)... but a sorta different type of game.

Amazing how such boredom can be so overhyped.

It's rubbish.

The only fun I had was putting a Swastika on my t-shirt and running around the village hitting people with my bug catching net.

You can just do what I did, change the GC's internal clock to different dates to take advantage of the different events.

Good move.

I'll play Crossing for a bit, then sell it... I could do with the money.
