Wii are Angry

Posted by chris On February - 20 - 2009

Wednesday night, I went on a fishing bonanza, filling my Animal Crossing house with fish to sell the next day in one big selling run.  Last night, a little while after I got home, I made my sales, getting myself up to over 85,000 bells (Animal Crossing currency), a hefty sum indeed.  I continued fishing, wanting to break the 100,000 mark, when I came across one of my town’s residents.  Francine, a rabbit, flagged me down to chat.  I took a break from fishing to see what she wanted.  She had a Sea Butterfly!  A Sea Butterfly is a tiny little fish that sells for 1,000 bells (a good price for something so small).  She asked if I would be interested in buying it and how much I would be willing to pay, which is followed by a vertical slider ranging from “Nothing” to “All of my money”.  I would hardly be willing to pay more than I could sell it for, obviously, so I moved the slider down near the Nothing (but not on the Nothing) option and continue the conversation.  She responded to my offer with:

“So 6,500 bells sounds about right?  Great!”

And suddenly, I find myself handing over 6,500 bells for a little Sea Butterfly.  I didn’t have an option to reject her ridiculous asking price.  I was forced into a purchase that lost me over 5,000 bells.  Needless to say, I was pretty pissed at that gameplay element, so I put in Mario Kart.

I fucking rule at Mario Kart.

    Yeah that seriously was ass. You can send letters to your town residents so I sent her one and it said:

    “Dear Francine,

    You may have scammed my Sweetie out of 6,000 bells but I am giving you a shell anyways. Enjoy you greedy goblin.”

    You can pick shells up off of the beach and either keep them, sell them, or give as gifts. Since I was sending a letter and a gift to each town resident I thought sending one to her with a VERY thoughtful letter would only be appropriate.

    I’ve got your back Sweetie!

    two things I would immediatly put into action

    first I would just say hi to resetti. or I would make it my mission to piss her offf every time I played

    hate mail, hit her with a bug net over and over to piss her off, and dont stop just cuz she is mad!

    dig holes around her house and plant pot holes near her whenever possible

    cut down all trees near her house and remove any flowers she plants

    she will leave real quick, I did this to all the stuck up animal bitches in my town. BTW, I would satrt playing again, if you wanted to come visit on nintendo Wifi on DS, I have to de weed my town, but what the hey, we could make a scavanger hunt or something fun lol

    I made a complaint to Pelly today, and I’m going to put a lot of your suggestions into action this week. And yeah, a game of find-the-weed would be fun!

    LOL “find the weed”

    I can just imagine a resident animal sending you mail asking for a joint, lol

    Haha. There are a couple of residents I wouldn’t be surprised to receive that letter from.
