In Animal Crossing: New Leaf that is! As promised what seems like so long ago now, I’ve snapped shots of all the Halloween decorations that have been on display in my pad since the beginning of the month. YES, like a complete maniac I jumped ahead a few weeks back, switched the in-game clock to October and collected the entire Spooky and Creepy sets. The Spooky stuff you can acquire fairly easily, popping into Nook’s store each day of the month and buying them but the Creepy items were a little uh… trickier. You can only snag those during the twilight hours of Halloween itself by running around and scaring the townsfolk with different masks. You know what that means, right? It means you better shake that sweet thing into high gear because the clock is ticking right now!
I sure hope you’ve been stocking up on candy this whole month. READ MORE
Because I’ve decided to set the clock on my 3DS ahead a few weeks and collect every “spooky” and “creepy” themed item in New Leaf like I was joking about a couple posts ago. I just want this stuff set up in my house and in order by the time October 1st rolls around (the real one) so bad. And that’s that: This is what I’m doing for the next however long it takes to do this with an accompanying horror movie or some cartoon shit playing in the background. Beginning tonight with one of my favorite 80’s specials: A Disney Halloween Treat:
Oh, and your ethical judgement of my time traveling habits in Animal Crossing can go suck a big one, Jim.
For the interior of my house in New Leaf I’ve decided to decorate with the “ramshackle” walls and flooring and mostly furniture from the “laboratory” series. If past installments of this game are any indication, come October there will be a Halloween themed set of items to collect throughout the month. But dammit I can’t wait, I need to have things up already. I guess I could engage in some time-traveling and try to collect all of that stuff now and have it ready BY the first of next month but I don’t know. Am I really that fucking crazy?
And you know what that means: Tricking out my house, village and avatar in New Leaf in time for the big day. I’m going to space out these posts as well as I can for the next couple of months to avoid fatigue but the above photo is a little taste of what’s to come. I spent an entire bus ride this afternoon working on decorating a couple of the rooms in my house and the results are coming along very nicely.
That’s right ladies and gentlemen. As of today I’ve reached the ripe old age of 33 22 years young and what better way to celebrate than with my good friends and family in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Well, specifically Sydney the Koala who threw me a surprise Birthday party upon booting the game up this afternoon. I’ve made it no secret that good old Syd is by far and away my favorite neighbor in Talahomi and he (she?) really pulled out the stops. Let’s have a look… READ MORE
But the strong reaction to the NES Link design on my tumblr page forced my hand so here you go guys. This image is of course the well known 16-bit sprite from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The stone cold classic SNES game that is on most days my favorite entry in the entire franchise and also a precursor to the upcoming 3DS game A Link Between Worlds. I chose a simple white background because it seemed kinda classy so there you have it.
Well if it isn’t one of those sweet little dinosaurs that Mario likes to ride around on! This design is based on his (hers?) pixelated 16-bit appearance in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island also known as the greatest game. The colors pop really well with this image and I’m very pleased with how it turned out, specifically the darker shade of green for the background. Only one day left now, what will tomorrow’s pattern be!?
Hey, mega nerd. Are you still mega flipping the fuck out over the recent recent mega announcement that Mega Man will be mega appearing as a playable fighter in the next Smash Bros. game? Well then have I got the mega Animal Crossing: New Leaf QR code for you! This pattern features the bane of Dr. Wiley’s existence in all of his beautiful 8-bit pixelated glory. I toyed around with various background colors but nothing aside from the baby blue shade seemed to fit. Mega Man is just too damn adorable.
Specifically, it makes for great wallpaper should you choose to take that route with it. The clouds on either side are designed to loop perfectly when placed side by side which is a nice touch if you ask me which I will pretend you just did. A lot of these patterns are ones that I’d made for other Animal Crossing games dating back to the GameCube original and recycled throughout all of the various sequels. Let’s face it:
Just in time for the late Summer/Early Fall, we have this lovely retro design featuring Link from the original Legend of Zelda for the NES. This timeless image will feel right at home on any T-shirt or town flag so be sure and visit the giant ass sewing machine in Mabel and Able’s shop to snag the fancy QR code. I’ve actually been scouring the internet for cool patterns to make in my free time so I can share them all with you and each day this week I’ll be posting a new one. I know, I know…I’m way too good to you. Enjoy!
