Yeah I mean I intend to customize my stuff like my look and stuff, but no more than I do like in a GTA game or in the newest Pokemon. More basic stuff where it's more about making simple choices rather than going kinda all in like one should in The Sims or Minecraft.

Anyways, appreciate the info. Cool cool.

I'm just remembering our ACNL Bore adventures. How fun they were. Hopping to someone's town, visiting the island, getting bugs... I remember coming home from work and messaging a few Best Friends and thinking "this is what I always wanted from Wild World..."

And now I'm thinking about what that'll be like in HD.

With online that doesn't crash before you can get back to your town and save.

With eight people running around in a single town instead of maxing out at four.

Brehs. :heartbeat

I hate asking this question, but should I get this? I've never played any of these games, but I'm falling for the hype a bit, especially since I'm stuck in my house. The closest thing that I've probably played is Harvest Moon a long ass time ago.

Nook miles seem dope af so far, bonuses for things like not missing fish in a row

Crafting seems interesting, cool you can sell weeds and trash, very happy with this so far and it’s so fucking cute

I got apples!! 🍎 My two villagers are Pashmina (who I had in New Leaf!!) and Dom (who I thought was the creepy clown sheep but thankfully isn't.)



I got the Museum in-progress area setup and my tent paid off. Also unlocked the Tool Wheel and the "Pretty Good" tool recipes (the "Flimsy" ones break between 10-20 uses I think.) Got my crafting bench set up next to my soon-to-be-house, which I plopped next to a small pond adjacent to Resident Services.



I'm ready to pour some hours into this game. Let's go! :D

Yes. The first player is the Resident Representative and a lot of progress is tied to them.

If you're a parent, you should absolutely set up your account first, and then your child's after.

Your first conversation with Blathers, he gives you the plans for crafting shovels and pole vaults. So get donating!

upgrade Resident Services from a tent to a building
[close]

Which I've heard takes about a week. Kind of a bummer.

I've listened to every hourly track in NH tho and it's really good! Subtle mixes and cues from past games, along with a light, breezy island vibe for about half the tracks.

My favorites in order are 2 AM, 5 AM, and 12 PM.

Oh that shit?

Basically there's two parts of Nook Miles, which you can redeem at the ABD for upgrades (like the Tool Ring!) or items (like fancy Nook clothing) similar to MEOW Coupons:

- Nook Miles: This is basically long-term achievements. Some are "one and done," some are multi-part and dole out Miles at increasing points (like catching more and more fish.) This also kinda mixes in Phineas and the Badge system from New Leaf. When you achieve something, it marks it with a stamp of the current date.

- Nook Miles+: Early on you also unlock the "Plus" version of Nook Miles. At any given point there will be 5 "tasks" for you to do and receive Miles for. If you complete one, another random "quest" will take its place. This is similar to the daily "quest" system of MEOW Coupons, except you can't run out, so there's always a way to make obvious forward progression in the game now.

Aside from the occasional subtle chime when you achieve something, it's basically optional as long as you can ignore the notification badge on the Nook Miles app. :P

You do need to go into it and "redeem" some things for Nook Miles early. I think it's the only way to upgrade your house the first time. (After that, it's all Bells, so Miles become truly optional.)

You're FORCED to nook miles to do the first upgrade?
