For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
This is my FIRST review...There is not a single word for this game, oh yes it is: SUPERB. I mean MAN this is good stuff. The graphics can suck my thumb but graphics can't stop this train.
It all starts on a train, you meet this suker that is kinda weird and stuff(his name is Rover) anyways, he talks to you and you think: "this guy seems nice!"(I'll come back to him later) he asks you about ALL you personal stuff(exept your underwear) and based on that you will get a face...becouse of the things you answer. When you get to town you meet another fruitcake; Tom Nook. He is such a bug!!
He sells you a house( a "house"...more like a cupboard) for 20.000 bells, and you own: 1000 bells...too bad, now you have to pay off a loan, from HIM!
You do some errands, and voila(or something like that) you have paid off your house...now that nutjob FORCES you to remodel the "house" you allready own. more money Cha-Ching for Nook.
after 2 or 3 MORE remodels you have a mansion...and that is SWEET!!
You might wanna go to some other place becouse the villagers seem to become a BIT boring. So you might put another memorycardin (with an other Town in) and go to THAT town...Once again you meet that clown Rover(now THIS is the part where he gets ANOYING!) he once again start talking to you...and you CAN'T shoot him ='(
The more you travel the MORE you want to kill him!!
But all in all this game is a work of ginius, becouse in YOUR town you can celebrate things like christmas and haloween and stuff. And you can also get COOL furniture for your house...man it's cool.
