Tomodachi Life Discussion (Nintendo 3DS) [game]
8/10 from 6 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for Tomodachi Life on the 3DS!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

So...Tomodachi Life is a game that exists. It is rather difficult to describe, as it does not really adhere to "standard" game parameters that we know. It's kind of like a mix of The Sims, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon and...Nintendogs, I suppose?

The game centers around Mii characters created or imported in the game by the player, and they live out their lives on an island. The player can interact with the various Miis, by giving them gifts, talking with them, solving problems, or just watching them do random stuff. And that's it. It doesn't sound very compelling, but it can be rather charming.

In any case, who else has this game? What are your thoughts so far? How goes life on your island? How goes...your friends, your drama, your life?

It's $34.99 everywhere not named Gamestop, if that helps any ;p

I haven't put enough time into it yet to form an opinion.

It's $39.99 my sad Canadian currency.
Odds are I'll download this one, if it's worth it.

Don't know if it's been $40's worth yet, but it's pretty damn funny at times!

Accidentally dyed my hair an awful gray color.

Hopefully more hair dye becomes accessible soonish.

So, is this thing worth forty bucks?

Help me out here!

Do you feel that Animal Crossing is worth forty bucks? Because that's basically the kind of game you're looking at here.

You can change your hair back to its normal color by managing your Mii. I dyed my wife's hair red just to see how I liked it...but I preferred her as a blonde. So I changed her back with the Mii settings.

Oh thank god; the gray matched the outfit I have on, but it looks so wrong on my Mii, heh.

Yeah, I enjoyed Animal Crossing.

I downloaded this, and added myself and Trish.
I'm going to add you guys too.

The island had our first rap battle, with Dean Winchester reigning supreme (backed by Sammy and Fabien)

I'm trying my darndest to get Trish and me together, but @VofEscaflowne seems like he's going to get in the way.
Maybe I need more females on my island...
So far, this has been an experience.

Also, here's my character.

Mwahaha, taking all the ladies for myself. Even in Kenny's game

What a sneaky guy, making sure we're having a good date...

I'm not so sure you want Gui on your side

Posted: 06/07/14, 03:49:13
Hahaha, this game is just so weird. I'm loving it.
Posted: 06/07/14, 03:55:06
Gui asked to have a bath. Who knew he'd have such a great time in there

EDIT: I'm so glad this game embraced sharing pictures since there are so many things you can screenshot, lol

Here's my Mii and his sweetheart realizing I was watching in:

The default "Heavy Metal" song lyrics are amazing. Hilarious.

How are you sharing your pics? I've been saving them to my computer and it's sort of a pain.

Go to i.nintendo.net on your 3DS browser while the game is running. You'll need to sign in with a social website like Twitter or whatever where it'll upload the pictures. I'm not sure if there's any other way to easily upload them but I already used Twitter anyway so it was easy enough to set up.

So why isn't Nintendo releasing an actual demo for this...?

I haven't had too much time to play this, but adding characters/people is a lot of fun.

Exercising with the right get-up.

Kenny and Fabien sing the opera. Looks like you can still have same-sex platonic love in this game, haha.

And Kenny's not even wearing his make up!

This made me laugh

I half expected a huge puff of smoke to roll out the door as I opened it.
