  • About the Animal Crossing letters and possible shenanigans -

    On the DS, one way to sent a note was to buy a note in a bottle from Tom Nook, write a note, and chuck it out to sea. Next time you someone visited your town, or you visited someone else', you could get a note in a bottle washed up on your shore later. It could be from anyone you came in contact with, so if someone had a lot of people in their town that you visited, it could be from any one of those people. Being as I visited Shacker towns, I had some interesting notes wash up. My favorite was a suicide note from redfive.

  • Perfectly timed...I have a 4 hour drive into Pittsburgh tommorow for a Doctor's this will at least kill some of the travel time (in addition to Zelda DS...I like to multitask when I'm driving you see...I just put the stylus in my mouth and hang onto the DS with my left hand while I steer with the right...actually I'm car-pooling down there with my Mom, as she also has a Doctor's appointment down there on the way down she'll drive and I'll play Zelda DS, and then I'll drive and she'll play Brain Age or NSMB or Sonic DS while I listen to the shackcast at least part of the time).
