Well I've just started playing the incredible and totally addictive Fantasy Life on the Nintendo 3DS.
After spending ages creating a character (there are plenty of options and I was tempted to be a bearded lady for a while) you fall out of bed in the town of Castele to begin your adventure.
You go to the guild to pick a life. The lives you can choose all have special skills and interests and include:
You can change life during the game (when your not in story mode). At first I was going to be the best Woodcutter in all of the land...
...but found as I progressed I wanted better tools and didn't want to spend my hard earned Dosh (yes the money is called Dosh in game) buying them.
So with a bit of switching I became a miner, gathered copper, then became a blacksmith to craft a nice axe. Now I'm working on my Carpenter skills so I can get wood planks more efficiently.
Once you have mastered one skill you can use it in your other lives.
The game has lovely graphics/art, cute music you find yourself humming the next day at work and a good sense of humour. I even noticed a reference to the magical number of 42 during training!
I currently live above Pam's Estate Agents. I like Pam she is a nice lady who gives you sweets and looks after you like your favourite Auntie.
At the Post Office there is a counter in which you can say a password to get cool stuff.
I will keep this blog updated with any passwords I find.
The game seems to have mixed review online, it is perhaps a little slow but life can be slow, it takes time to masters skills in a new job, get Dosh, buy a better house. I personally love the pace and find it relaxing. It certainly entertains me while my other half shoots things in the recent Borderlands release!

Anyway as Pam says "Sleep well, my dear" and have a great Fantasy Life!
