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 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month ago) link

i think your debt payments get progressively larger if that counts

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:16 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month ago) link

That's how I do it in real life.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 03:26 (one month 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.)

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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week ago) link

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

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:32 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week 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 (one week ago) link

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

Kate (rushomancy), Saturday, 21 March 2020 01:33 (one week ago) link

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

I invite you all to the island of genauso

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

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

nxd, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:25 (one week ago) link

little doses is correct

ciderpress, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:49 (one week ago) link

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

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:50 (one week ago) link

BTW OMG I need that music room wallpaper. In my 3DS AC game, I had an entire attic room given over to studio gear, every instrument you could buy, and the soundproof wallpaper, I gotta make one again.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 30 March 2020 22:49 (two days ago) link

what do you believe "fun" is

idk anything about AC and I really wasn't serious. I've just heard a lot of people talking about turnip prices. I'm sure AC has many charms that are not related to maximizing ROI.

i think AC is a reflection of how you approach it. it would be very easy to turn it into a min/max grind, which is incredibly enjoyable for some people! it can also be a very chill game! i was mentioning the turnip/stalk market/stock market stuff this morning, but it's really a minor part of the game

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 22:58 (two days ago) link

i am sorta grinding right now to get a larger house, though. i really want to have themed rooms like trayce was just talking about.

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 22:59 (two days ago) link

yeah cool, themed rooms

(this game is universally loved and nothing anyone says appeals to me, I'm probably going to have to buy it just to figure out what the hell is going on)

lukas, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:02 (two days ago) link

I am stalling on my house interior, just racking up bells trying to find new species for the museum and nook miles tickets so I can populate the island with all the fruits

El Tomboto, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:03 (two days ago) link

lukas i would recommend playing it until you think it sounds like a good idea. i didn't think it was until this year. now, like the ending of 1984, i am finally ready. i believe

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:12 (two days ago) link

i would recommend ^not^ playing, i meant

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:12 (two days ago) link

BTW if any of y'all ever see me online just try flying over to me, I do try and open my gates now and then. I'll be on between 12-1 every day (AEDST)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 30 March 2020 23:35 (two days ago) link

fuck. you can sell multiple things at once by selecting them before hitting confirm. i’ve been selling everything one at a time and sitting through tommy’s bullshit spiel a billion times.

karmic blowback for dissing pip and jane baker (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:35 (yesterday) link

on a similar level, i just figured out last night how to rearrange items in my Pockets/inventory: (hold A on the item)

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:42 (yesterday) link

Also you can speed up crafting by spamming A
And run by holding down B when moving

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 31 March 2020 02:00 (yesterday) link

If you B-run too close to fish or certain bugs they’ll disappear though

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 02:08 (yesterday) link

Yes true. Also in the old game running over flowers was a Bad Idea but im not sure if that applies now, given the new game has a slightly diff process for flower planting and harvesting

Ive managed to trigger the "town hall is being built" thing which means no resident servcies today which means I cant do any island mystery tours :(

"New Horizons marked the point where AC became mainstream enough for actual interior designers to start playing it, and they promptly ruined it for everybody else".

JimD, Wednesday, 1 April 2020 09:37 (twelve hours ago) link

“I feel shabby and inadequate,” says player Devon Gozjolko, who spoke with Polygon over email — alongside dozens of other players — about what it’s like to see other Animal Crossing fans share elaborate designs on social media.

“Every time I get on Twitter I see posts from both friends and internet people I follow who have these either incredibly ornate or certifiably insane setups on their island, and it honestly feels terrible, like, who did I think I was buying this game?” says New Horizons player Patrick LaBelle.
