Should I buy the Nintendo DS simply for Nintendogs?
Posted by DonkaWechico 12 years ago, closed 12 years ago
Yes, your first-born child is worth Nintendogs

No, but you should buy the DS anyway for other games (Animal Xing, Advance Wars, etc)

No, wait until the DS has a better bundle pack

How did you enjoy the cherry blossom festival last week?
Posted by DonkaWechico 13 years ago, closed 13 years ago
It sucked! I couldn't do favors for anybody the whole time, and the mayor's gift blew.
0%
The falling blossoms were nice, but I was a bit annoyed by the inability to do favors and the quality of the mayor's gift.
14%
I liked it! The citizens were happy, the blossoms were pretty, and I was happy to get to talk to the mayor. I actually found the inability to interact with the citizens a realistic feature that kept me in suspense.
