Stolen Pixels #242: Welcome to Town!

Shamus young, you should win an award for your brilliant and beautiful poetry... I salute you.

Are you suffering from Animal Crossing addiction now, Shamus?

You know that you are vulnerable to this kind of thing! Remember Chime and Minecraft as recent examples?

Nice poem and way a go getting my poem study mind running (I currently doing soem poem study at the moment). Yeah we all hate that Racoon.

First a Raccoon super 'hero' and now a Raccoon loan shark.
We really need to keep these creatures in the forest were they belong

I take it Shamus has given up on New Vegas then? Surely there's plenty more to poke fun at in the Mojave, apart from the obvious technical issues.

I really should get around to playing Animal Crossing one day. Unfortunately, I'd need to get a wii first...

Tom Nook doesn't just break your spirit. He picks up the pieces and uses them as seasoning as he devours your soul. Afterwards, he has your hopes and dreams for dessert with a nice Chianti wine.

There are a couple things about Animal Crossing I always found strange...

If there are other "people" that are supposed to be working for Tom, where are they? Who moves to a new place with no stuff and no money? How do the guards know your name, and why won't they let you leave?

Obviously, Tom Nook is far more sinister than he lets on. THE PEOPLE MUST KNOW!

Raccons are evil. Didn't you know that?

I havent played Animal Crossing though.

I must point you all to the Something Awful Let's Play of Animal Crossing.

http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Animal%20Crossing/

All the secrets will be revealed there.

And it's brilliant.

Aw damnnit, you ninja'd me. The truth behind Animal Crossing is high octance nightmare fuel, truly not a children's game.

HA! Jokes on him. I haven't been back in years, YEARS! Can you imagine how much of a hellhole wasteland that town is now? And he can never leave. Suck on my apathetic revenge, Nook!

Me too :(

I actually went into that expecting a normal LP... man was I shocked.

I have Wild World, and am pretty sure it's unbeatable. After each mortgage, there is another...

Some times I just giggle at the ways Shamus puts these things.

"Oh he's so crazy, it can't all be like that."

Then I read up on the story.

Holy Shit...and they say Amnesia is bad?

Why not just rename your character Number 6 and be done with it?

how does "fool" rimes with "do", i have been trying to say it out loud in every accent i could imagine, and unless they pronounce it "dool" where samus lives i dont get it.

if someone got a audio file where someone gets it to rime i would greatly appreciate it.

But... But... Gold statue of yourself! And you have a mansion!

Seriously, if you pay off all your debt, you get a solid gold statue of yourself in town because you're JUST THAT GREAT. It pays off in the end, I promise! He's not sinister, he just needs your money to get you the best present you've ever had!

Holy crap! I've never played Animal Crossing, but if what you say is true, that Tom Nook is evil. Never mind all those lesser villains, none can compare to the evil of Tom Nook.

I actually re-bought wild world recently, and was reminded of nooks endless greed. He is one shady racoon, no doubt.

I talked to one of the characters recently, who randomly mentioned "being too adult for such things" and when I answered "what things" he said "Oh no...when tom nook got involved in those things, the whole town suffered!"

Needless to say, I was creeped out.

EDIT: That damn LP was even creepier...

Dammit, Shamus. That's almost enough for me to dust off my copy of Animal Crossing, load it into my Wii, the spend the next 8 hours pulling weeds and killing roaches.

Almost.

Well we always knew that raccoons were evil, I mean look at Raccoon city, that's full of evil! (ba dum tish...)

i still dont think it rimes with "do", again unless you pronounce it dool.

If I hadn't seen my girl play these games I'd have no idea what this was about, but that was pretty funny

You could pronounce fool in the ghetto way, foo' rhymes with do

yes! huzzah.

...but, the random "ghetto" slang doesn't really fit in with the mood or the rest of the rhymes, but then again all my knowledge about the ghetto is from GTA san andreas.

I think you should avoid Recettear if that bugs you, you may take to hating a certain adorable loan shark fairy.

I got ninja'd! I was going to post about that Animal crossing LP "The Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing" too!

I remember reading either a comic or watching an animated short about this rodent! and i was pretty sure i saw it here on the Escapist!

Also indentured servitude for some good lolz.

Tom Nook, he owns you in both defenitions.

Heh, it's fun imagining this to the voice and tune of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBewtVuEASc

May I just say, I don't think I will ever be able to look at Animal Crossing the same way again now...

IGN made a list of the top 100 videogame villans

http://www.ign.com/videogame-villains/index.html

Tom Nook is Nr. 72

Or a Gamecube, or a DS.

The DS version is widely considered the best, though.

I don't see Tom Nook as evil, really, but rather a stupid businessman. He gives you these insane mortgages, then he basically pays them off for you. Unless you're income is solely from bell rocks, and tree-shaking (and the odd letter from "Mom"), it comes from Nook himself when you sell turnips, fruit, fish, etc.
