Currently in the grips of an Animal Crossing: New Leaf addiction and judging from my last two diary entries - you are as well! You can read those installments here: one and two. I must say that documenting my New Leaf experience isn't as guilt-inducing as I thought it'd be now that I know it happens to us all.

I've probably put a good 50 hours of gameplay behind me now. Logically thinking, that seems impossible but because the game is so time orientated, you quickly find yourself whiling away the hours, waiting for Tom Nook's Homes or the Re-tail store to reopen.

Earlier this week I completed more building work on my house... and I now have a three-floor home! I don't ever recall having the option to expand my house to both a second floor and a basement level too, and am now saving to expand the upper floor so I can fit more in there. Additionally, as I play the Town Mayor in New Leaf, I can put plans forward for new developments within my town. Anyone else get really worked up over their town layouts?! ...... just me then. I've actually just finished paying off the loan for a new bridge and can't wait for easy access to the beach half of town. More shells, more bells...

I've heard rumours that you can control the times that shops open and close, meaning that gameplay could last a lot longer. I could certainly do with an extra hour whilst on my commute and in the evenings after my freelance work! I've also noticed that there's an extra area towards the back of the town which I'm yet to explore properly - I believe you need friends for this, so if you have New Leaf, add my Friend Code (3883 - 5630 - 0644) and we can visit each other's towns!

This week, I caught my first scorpion of the game and captured the moment with the 3DS camera. I love that you can Tweet, Facebook and/or Tumblr your Animal Crossing: New Leaf screenshots, a nifty feature that could work really well if rolled out into other Nintendo 3DS titles. I tend to screenshot big milestones, purely because I'm amazed at the 3D technology.
Disclaimer: My Nintendo 3DS XL console and Animal Crossing: New Leaf game were both gifted very kindly for review by Nintendo. I have not been paid for this post and all opinions are my own.
