Worth reposting this for anyone who’s going to be coming to AC for the first time, this time round.

This comes out a few days after my birthday. I better get gifted this or someone in my house is losing a limb.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 19 February 2020 04:15 (seven months ago) link

My daughter was mostly into this this morning, but she also thought the game looked like more work than previous iterations.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 20 February 2020 15:54 (seven months ago) link

this comes out ON my birthday and getting ever deeper into debt with tom nook and his growing family of goons and usurers is my fondest bday wish

adam, Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:04 (seven months ago) link

more work

ever deeper into debt

i see that i have chosen the perfect time of my life to finally get into animal crossing

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:11 (seven months ago) link

does the game have some sort of lofty goal that seems attainable at first but becomes more and more impossible as the game progresses? if so, SOLD

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:12 (seven months ago) link

i think your debt payments get progressively larger if that counts

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:16 (seven months ago) link

:D oh yes, that counts

all dumb adult jokes aside, i am pretty excited to try it out. regardless of what the longtime fans think of this new entry, i'm pretty sure i'll be very happy with whatever they came up with.

I think my fave part of this game - heck, of a lot of nintendo games now I think on it - is the fishing. I fuckin hate fishing IRL but in games it is nice and peaceful.

(Was so bummed they had no fishing in BOTW even though fish were an integral part of the recipes)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 23 February 2020 22:08 (seven months ago) link

You could catch fish with your bare hands! Or blow them out of the water.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 23 February 2020 22:42 (seven months ago) link

JRPG needs fishing. https://t.co/jKDNRzesIj

I usually electrocuted them with a few shock arrows and waded in and collected the corpses.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 24 February 2020 03:22 (seven months ago) link

That's how I do it in real life.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 03:26 (seven months ago) link

(I just googled "fishing with lighting" and got some hits of a fishing boat struck by lighting and the like. Reminds me of one of my kids years ago asking, as kids are wont to do, if a tornado had ever hit a train. I googled that, too, and what do you know, found an incredible video of a mounted train camera catching the train getting hit and then derailed by a tornado. The internet is terrible, but it is also awesome.)

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 03:30 (seven months ago) link

Yike!

basketball island

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 21:58 (six months ago) link

no more new videogames for me, for a while. :(

but that's ok, maybe i can revisit one of literally dozens (hundreds?) of games where i got about 30 hours in and quit

Karl Malone, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:02 (six months ago) link

like, my witcher dude is still currently new to the region of novigrad, i think

Karl Malone, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:03 (six months ago) link

i have a lot of expectations for this. how many players can make characters? i have 4 potential players in this house and foresee many many months of gameplay ahead.

Mordy, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:14 (six months ago) link

every account on your switch gets their own character, i think theres a max of 8 accounts. you share an island if you're on the same system

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:18 (six months ago) link

This game is going to occupy my younger daughter so much that she won't even know that the epidemic has ended.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:50 (six months ago) link

i think that is the plan for many people in the world

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:32 (six months ago) link

if I could somehow arrange to do my actual job from within Animal Crossing that'd be ideal

silby, Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:36 (six months ago) link

I have two switches in my house. I bought one digital copy of AC. How does that work?

rb (soda), Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:59 (six months ago) link

you can install it on both but you can only play it on one switch at a time

ciderpress, Friday, 20 March 2020 00:05 (six months ago) link

and your save is tied to the console so you'll have a different island on each afaik

ciderpress, Friday, 20 March 2020 00:07 (six months ago) link

Popped into the local JB Hifi to pick up a copy this morning and the place had a small knot of nerds hovering at thr doors til they opened who all dashed in and grabbed their preorders.

...I felt so old!

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 20 March 2020 00:23 (six months ago) link

Day one: need to drag my daughter away from the game for lunch. She loves it so far, though.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 20 March 2020 17:46 (six months ago) link

i've finished the tutorial stuff but haven't figured out what i want to do next

ciderpress, Friday, 20 March 2020 18:06 (six months ago) link

why the fuck would i be interested in a getting-stung-by-wasps simulator

Kate (rushomancy), Saturday, 21 March 2020 01:33 (six months ago) link

We started my wife’s island using my account and now I feel very dumb.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 March 2020 01:49 (six months ago) link

this is so chill

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Saturday, 21 March 2020 10:58 (six months ago) link

tom nook handing out the reskinned SEs. surprised he did not go down the escobar route, reskinning a samsung fold

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Saturday, 21 March 2020 11:01 (six months ago) link

I invite you all to the island of genauso

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Saturday, 21 March 2020 20:27 (six months ago) link

enjoying this, but in little doses! never played an AC game before :)

nxd, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:25 (six months ago) link

little doses is correct

ciderpress, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:49 (six months ago) link

It’s fun to talk to folks after you’ve been stung by wasps

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:50 (six months ago) link

amazing

Nhex, Friday, 17 July 2020 15:07 (two months ago) link

xxp yeah I do, let me see if I can send it to you when I finish work, if I can’t message me the next time you’re online and I’ll open my gates :)

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 17 July 2020 15:22 (two months ago) link

Lol....trayce what is your island and character name? I’m not sure who is you and who is clouds.

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 17 July 2020 18:50 (two months ago) link

Oh God. The Walking Stick joke.

Nhex, Saturday, 18 July 2020 22:38 (two months ago) link

Giving away some items, DFJW8 if you’re interested

scampos mentis (gyac), Sunday, 19 July 2020 14:24 (two months ago) link

LOL sorry all, I forgot to log back in here! I'm TrayTray on switch, my code is upthread somewhere I cant check it atm im working.

Dont need the low wood table DIY now, I found it after posting that last post!

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 19 July 2020 23:20 (two months ago) link

Anyone need the golden toilet DIY? I shot a down a duplicate :D

Jaq, Sunday, 19 July 2020 23:52 (two months ago) link

xp i know, but you don’t come up on the friends menu when you’re online so I didn’t know who to send it to

scampos mentis (gyac), Monday, 20 July 2020 07:33 (two months ago) link

Huh, the otter didn't show up today when I got a scallop. Weird.

I've got some seasonal Starry-sands flooring if anyone wants it

Nhex, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:17 (two months ago) link

if you pick up the scallop when your pockets are full (so you drop something else first to pick it up) or if you're too close to the fence we've noticed it doesn't trigger pascal

Mordy, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:21 (two months ago) link

oh ok, i think that's it. i was right up against the east border

Nhex, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:43 (two months ago) link

Pascal has not given me a single bloody DIY. Just pearls. I mean I dont really like the look of the mermaid set anyway but geez.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 20 July 2020 21:37 (two months ago) link

Sometimes you need to catch two scallops and he shows up on the second. I’ve got three mermaid diys, the dress, and pearls so far.

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 07:25 (two months ago) link

anyone have decent turnip prices?

clouds, Saturday, 25 July 2020 11:47 (two months ago) link

Nope, suggest using one of the apps. Might have to queue but worth it if you’ve got a lot to sell before tomorrow

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 23:07 (two months ago) link

Yes, we are friends on friend code but I don’t know if I’ve added you on best friends, but I’m guessing not since you don’t show online. How should I nudge you the next time I see you online?

let them microwave their rice (gyac), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 23:34 (two months ago) link

trayce, you on the slack? that might be easiest

Nhex, Wednesday, 29 July 2020 02:00 (two months ago) link

Nah i dont use slack. Dont rly have time for slack/dischord chat stuff with the WFH and all.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 03:26 (two months ago) link

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 2 August 2020 21:48 (one month ago) link

Finally saw a shooting star tonight - wow they go by fast. Still trying to Meteonook my way to a better life but damn, feels like such a random mechanic

Turnips at 524 for a few more hours!
Stitches is also boxing up, if you want a cute, re-animated teddy bear as your neighbor.
Any DIY stuff or dropped beach items are free for the taking.

Might come over?

rb (soda), Wednesday, 5 August 2020 00:16 (one month ago) link

thanks! we sold a lot of bells and convinced a weird bear to move to our 10th spot. much appreciated!

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 5 August 2020 00:41 (one month ago) link

Love Stitches, but it was time for him to move on. Glad he's going going to a good home!
I'll keep gates open at least for another hour, as long as Nook's is available for tonight.

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2020 00:56 (one month ago) link

i have mixed feelings about having two lazy villagers, but he and wade the penguin can coexist

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 5 August 2020 00:58 (one month ago) link

Closed. Thanks for the tips!

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2020 02:14 (one month ago) link

On the offchance anyone around and wants to visit, my island is open for about an hour and a half (woke up early for bins and it’s already too hot to do anything else). My nooks isn’t open for another hour, but I have free DIYS and am always happy to give away clothes or furniture and flowers!

Dodo code is 9WF45

let them microwave their rice (gyac), Thursday, 6 August 2020 05:52 (one month ago) link

Oh also I have Annelise (an anteater) in boxes if anyone wants a new villager.

let them microwave their rice (gyac), Thursday, 6 August 2020 05:52 (one month ago) link

Trayce if you see this, my island is open for the next while before I go to bed, come visit!

Anyone I’m friends with can drop in, I have a fireworks show on and you can play the raffle or catch things, whatever.

Nhex, Saturday, 5 September 2020 14:37 (three weeks ago) link

OMG I havent played this in like a month, Ive missed almost all of the firework nights, and had to TT backwards to catch up. My villagers are all cranky with me and there are FLOWERS EVERYWHERE.

In my defence Ive become addicted to learning chess on chess.com so Ive been distracted :(

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 6 September 2020 03:38 (three weeks ago) link

Gate’s open from an hour from now if anyone wants to come and visit
