Even if their name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve probably played one of their games – they’re the ones behind the Luminous Arc series [DS], Yoshi’s New Island, the Criminal Girls series [PSP/Vita], and other cool games like Black Rock Shooter: The Game [PSP] and Time and Eternity [PS3]. Unfortunately, imageepoch shut down earlier ...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is not a typical Animal Crossing game. I cannot stress this enough. If you go into Happy Home Designer expecting a sequel to New Leaf, you’re going to be extremely disappointed. For reference, I rolled the credits in about ten hours.
