STELLAAAAAA!! ...I mean BIRTHDAY GIFT GLIIIIIITCH!!
Imagine if you will some guy who can't stop playing Animal Crossing that triggers the notorious birthday gift glitch. A glitch that freezes every single member of town indefinitely and has no apparent solution.
Actually, the player gets frozen too, but that wouldn't make for a very fun comic arc. This crash would happen sometimes in the previous DS Animal Crossing game when you gave a neighbor a gift for their birthday, and the likelihood of it happening increased the longer you've been playing. So when a crazy person like me that plays the game almost everyday for two and a half years gives a gift, it's almost guaranteed to happen. Eventually, I just stopped getting them stuff. They didn't seem to care.
Let's see where this goes.
