I love myself a good gadget, something that usually only has one use, and that use is ridiculously specialized, and you'll rarely need it...but it's still a neat thing to have. Makes you feel like a really shit James Bond, maybe one affected by the cuts, having to takeover a submarine with a motorized spoon for eating spaghetti. Anyway, I'm going off on a silly tangent. This thread is for the discussion of all your favorite gadgetry and gizmos, be it a stylus that lets you control your phone with your face, or a iPod dock that doubles as a toilet roll holder. Anything and everything, drop it here and discuss. Also the more sensible stuff like phones...but that's boring, right? Start your gadgets, guys and gals.
Flyboy Fox posted a topic in Member Feedback / Bug ReportsAs the end of November approaches, and Advent is about to begin, it's that time of year again, folks! SSMB's Seasonal Festivities! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or just Happy Holidays with family and friends, we're throwing a party here on SSMB for the whole of December (just like in the good old days!) and every single one of you is invited to join in and spread the season's cheer (: So, basically, what's going to happen is that the staff team are going to run some festive forum games, and there'll be some interesting events popping up on TSS too, so keep an eye on the main site! I'll be kicking things off with a post over there in a couple of days~ How can YOU help? Well! Glad you asked! I'd like some [reasonable - so don't ask for an interactive advent calendar because there's simply not the time or man-power to throw something like that together D:] suggestions for some fun little things we can do on the forum. I can tell you that we WILL be having a return of the popular "Decorate the SSMB Christmas Tree" game, so consider that one already set to go. What else might we be up to? And what else would you like to see? I can't promise that all ideas will be implemented, but we'll do our best to make things as fun as possible here over the coming weeks in the lead up to the festive climax. Also, don't forget to submit your festively themed banners in the banner thread! The next set of banner uploads will be happening in early December, so get cracking. Finally, it would be really neat to see as many of you as possible change up your names to reflect the festive season, starting December 1st. If you require a forced name change (i.e. because you've used up your limit), it's likely that an admin will be willing to help you with that. You don't have to, of course, but it's always fun! So, get your Santa hats and reindeer antlers on, start the fire crackling, grab some Stollen or mince pies and join us for a round of carol sing-- oh, wait, no. It's still ideas and guessing time. So, get to it! ♪
addictive (uh-dik-tiv) adjective 1. producing or tending to cause addiction: an addictive drug. 2. more than normally susceptible to addiction: an addictive personality. 3. Harvest Moon Harvest Moon is a bit of an enigma. It's a game franchise centered around one of the most boring chores in existence: farming. Yet despite the boring premise, it's been around for over fifteen years and has garnered one hell of a cult following. But why? How does a series about farming end up so successful? Well, like you no doubt already gathered, it's addictive. While the farming itself can be compelling enough, the gameplay here is actually quite deep. Fishing, mining, befriending townsfolk, attending yearly festivals, cooking, minor stat-building, collecting various things and, perhaps most importantly, wooing a potential wife/husband and having kids. And each and every single one of these are more developed then you would initially think. If you haven't played it, imagine a mixture between Animal Crossing and The Sims then add farming. It's just fun and satisfying to raise a miniature farming-empire out of nothing and getting to know the characters. Alright, so for those of you who have played this franchise, which game is your favorite? Which game did you start with? Say anything that comes to mind. I'm actually relatively new to the franchise. I've always known about it, and whenever I saw Harvest Moon covered in Nintendo Power as a kid I'd always read the article. But I didn't actually try it until early 2008, when the original SNES game was re-released on Wii's Virtual Console. Figuring I had waited long enough, I started playing it with only a vague idea of what to expect. After about two and a half days of doing almost nothing else, I cried manly tears as the credits rolled. How could it already be over? So then I started checking out the rest of the franchise, loving pretty much every minute of it. My absolute favorite is Friends of Mineral Town on GBA. It takes absolutely everything that worked in previous games and combines it all into one glorious, portable cartridge. I also have to acknowledge Rune Factory Frontier on the Wii. (Rune Factory is Harvest Moon set in a traditional JRPG setting, basically) The only thing really holding that one back is the annoying ass Runey system, other then that it's the best game in years. Unfortunately, I haven't really been liking newer games in the series, at least on the handhelds. The Wii games are alright, but the DS games have been really lacking as of late. They tend to either be too shallow or too convoluted for their own good. I've been hearing slightly better things about The Tale of Two Towns, but I still can't get ultra excited. Though the upcoming (currently Japan-only) 3DS game has the most potential I've seen in years. (Pretty much everything can be fully customized!) P.S. Sorry, I don't know what the heck is up with the font at the top of the page.
