One of the best things about Animal Crossing is the lack of huge, game-changing events. No death, no atomic bombs reducing McNulty to a radioactive wasteland, no huge bosses carrying off animal chums. Instead the worst thing that happened over the weekend was that Rodeo lost his house key. And then I found it for him. Also, I got a snow globe from Tortimer and a pinwheel from Phineas. And a lovely monocle from the clothes shop.
