    After playing this game for a couple of days, I have to say that it's addictive. I've got about 120 street pass miis on my 3DS and I've been raiding them to get more characters for Tomodachi Life. So far I've got 14 island residents; as the population grows, I think it's going to be mass chaos. It's a bizarre game that certainly won't be for everyone but I think it will garner a cult following and be moderately successful.

    There will be inevitable comparisons to animal crossing and in some ways it surpasses that venerable series. There's much less freedom to customize clothing or living space, but Tomodachi Life allows you to determine the personality type and voice (you actually get to tinker with how they sound) of each individual character, whereas Animal Crossing has a large number of predetermined characters. You actually get to watch these characters interact and establish relationships with one another; Animal Crossing characters rarely seem to talk, if ever. What this means practically is that no two people will have the same experience with Tomodachi Life. The game, at heart, is about the relationships. It's a sort of experimental toy where you establish a colony and watch the insanity ensue. I don't have the patience to give it a full review, but thus far I'd give it a respectable 8.5/10.

    Who else imported Fils-a-mech to Tomodachi Life and gave him the catch phrase "My body is ready"?

    Interesting, interesting. I actually did want to try this game at one point. Isn't it somewhat like Animal Crossing? Also, did you ever play "Fantasy Life"?

    I liked Fantasy Life a lot, but I didn't get to play much of it.

    This game and Animal Crossing: New Leaf are my most played 3DS games.
    I would really like to see a Switch version down the line. Hopefully with new things to do, as it wouldn't be so much fun if it was a straight port.

    Look at you, Tommy. You’re growing into a little Cloud. Necroing is just what we do, and you managed to necro a thread I necroed. Come here, my son.
