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 year 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

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 year ago) link

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

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

this is so chill

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 (one year ago) link

I invite you all to the island of genauso

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

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

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

little doses is correct

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

My daughter has already described it as a once a day sort of game.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:44 (one year ago) link

i had a great time with it earlier, can't wait to pick it up again tomorrow morning. a house upgrade is coming tomorrow, as well as a new pair of eyeglasses! my island is called Boneyarden.

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:47 (one year ago) link

i also got stung, and sold the wasp nest before realizing i needed it to craft medicine, before realizing i could just buy medicine

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:47 (one year ago) link

because it runs on real time you can't really marathon it any more than you can marathon cooking dinner or whatever

ciderpress, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:48 (one year ago) link

my daughter got the house upgrade today, and the axe and all sorts of other crap. she's a pro

I caught a squid tho

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

also made myself some dope USA USA face paint

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

i also made weird face paint

this game rules tbh, i'm not glad i didn't play it before, but i'm glad to have my first time be right now

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:52 (one year ago) link

i will invite people over to my island as soon as i figure out how to do it (unlock it) and spruce the place up a bit

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:53 (one year ago) link

So is that how online works? You make your island, and you can invite internet people over? Does it still work on that follow the leader system, though? Where everyone basically has to do what you do and go where you go and work toward your goals?

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 02:30 (one year ago) link

Also, what weirdly great timing for the release of this game. Forget the Chinese and the CIA, I'm beginning to think this virus was designed by Nintendo.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 02:42 (one year ago) link

the cost of this virus will never drop

latin hypercube in shitspace (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 22 March 2020 03:26 (one year ago) link

the follow the leader system is for local multiplayer where you have one screen. online you can just do whatever on the other players islands, you can't change/destroy/steal their stuff though

ciderpress, Sunday, 22 March 2020 03:55 (one year ago) link

one thing i was surprised by: tonight my partner joined my island. i thought she'd see my avatar walking around, but i'm gone! is that normal, or is that just because it's the first night for both of us? it was just kind of weird, like...why would be my tent and possessions be there, but my character is absent from the island?

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 04:28 (one year ago) link

Man oh man is the online visitor system in Animal Crossing disruptive. 8 slots and each time someone either enters or exits everyone on the host island comes to a complete stop for like 35-90 seconds. Just spent 10 minutes trying to get off a friend’s popular island!

luckily i have no friends

Cuz you aren’t playing! That’s you after all. You’re uh. Maybe you’re swimming offshore.

silby, Sunday, 22 March 2020 15:32 (one year ago) link

KM answer my friend req

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 March 2020 15:44 (one year ago) link

the turnip lady has the rona

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 15:52 (one year ago) link

xxp you are a patient on this island, and the game is a treatment designed to make you confront a terrible truth

latin hypercube in shitspace (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 22 March 2020 15:57 (one year ago) link

my tiger butterfly gave the owl goosebumps

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:10 (one year ago) link

i love this game

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:11 (one year ago) link

i did not realize i would be getting animal trivia

i love+ this game

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:34 (one year ago) link

just learning about parasaurolophus, nbd

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:35 (one year ago) link

yes this game owns. let's trade fruit

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:49 (one year ago) link

I have cherries (native), and apples/coconuts (currently growing)

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:50 (one year ago) link

add me to come visit the wonderful island of genauso - SW-7828-0095-6207

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:52 (one year ago) link

native pears for me! i'll visit some places and leave gifts (if i can) later today

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:22 (one year ago) link

so you can only visit while friends are online? how do you keep the airport open for people to come by when you aren't playing?

El Tomboto, Monday, 23 March 2020 02:09 (one year ago) link

the whole game takes place in the pre-object permanence stage of development, i guess

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 02:26 (one year ago) link

U guys know you can avoid the wasps if yr quick rite - run (walk and spam b) to the nearest doorway and go inside!

And yeah as far as I can tell going onto other ppls islands only works if you open your gates while playing. Oh! and you have to have a paid Nintendo account too, as me and Nick found out yesterday (luckily I'd already just done a family plan cos of Minecraft).

Frend me u fules. SW-3649-7690-8397

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 23 March 2020 02:32 (one year 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 (nine months 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 (nine months ago) link

Closed. Thanks for the tips!

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2020 02:14 (nine months 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

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 (nine months 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.

Gah sorry I keep missing - time diff screws with me.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 9 August 2020 23:25 (nine months ago) link

three weeks pass...

Inspirational stuff. Need to work out how to compose a suitable tune.

scampo italiano (gyac), Saturday, 5 September 2020 14:09 (eight months ago) link

https://youtu.be/CFkGP773X80 i of course meant to post this

scampo italiano (gyac), Saturday, 5 September 2020 14:18 (eight months ago) link

haha nice ending with the "body bag"

Nhex, Saturday, 5 September 2020 14:37 (eight months 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 (eight months ago) link

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

scampo italiano (gyac), Sunday, 6 September 2020 09:41 (eight months ago) link

*for, ffs

scampo italiano (gyac), Sunday, 6 September 2020 09:42 (eight months ago) link

Am I still the only person playing this

scampus fugit (gyac), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:15 (five months ago) link

my partner still plays it for about eight hours a week and stops by my house to kill the cockroaches once a month

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 19:27 (five months ago) link

lol. i bowed out in August. tempted to go back whenever there's a new content update though

Nhex, Tuesday, 1 December 2020 20:00 (five months ago) link

i quit when my partner and i broke up and the thought of seeing her mailbox blinking and the villagers asking me where she's been lately was too much

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 1 December 2020 20:43 (five months ago) link

oof

is right unfortunately (silby), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 20:44 (five months ago) link
