December 5, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

We’ve all been there; anxiously twiddling our thumbs at 5am in the morning, each tick of the clock sounding like the titanic strides of a giant, waiting for our parents or guardians to rise out of bed and bestow upon us the gift of giving once more before the year retires…

In Defence of Tom Nook

December 1, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

Ah, Mr. Thomas “Bellbags” Nook. To many, he’s the primary antagonist of Animal Crossing, tainting villages with his capitalist agenda and ability to throw you into crippling debt at the drop of a hat. The resentment for this business minded raccoon is so strong in some…
