I think the game is fun. I don't like how restricted I feel in the beginning. Also crafting gets annoying with so little inventory space.

I’m very mixed on the crafting. It feels limiting at the start, but it also gives you some tasks to do, which can be rewarding to complete.

I am so digging being able to make so many different types of clothing, especially brimmed hats.

In one of the trailers we saw the character jump over the water by using a long stick. This way reaching the other parts of the island. how do you get this long stick? Did somebody get it already? Or do you need to build a bridge first.

You need to set up a new tent that Nook gives you after completing some tasks

Still can't figure out what I wanted to name my island...
I wanted to name it something as a tribute to Etika, since he was looking forward to this game so much, but I can't think of anything that is family-friendly or doesn't sound weird in context...
If I can't figure it out, I'll probably settle for something generic like "Outset Island" or something...

I was boring... so I named it Big Koon.

Anyone have S/N of the ACNH Joy-Con? Apparently that's what the game uses to give you the special edition Switch furnishing and I'd like to spoof my Joy-Con to test it.

it's just the joy-con colors. there's a link in the tutorial section for how to do it (since i'm new, i don't think i can link it myself)

With the update and Version 1.1.0 the bug is gone and animals are talking again.

Does the 1.1 update need 9.2 firmware? It seems yes, but will it work on 9.0? I am currently on 9.0 and dont want to officially update.

Since it is linked to Real time, you really have to wait 2 days? Or a day? Or can you "forward" it? Because I actually want play and not "wait" for the next day.

Other then that, game is super fun, I gonna buy it today. Just curious, if there is a cheaper way then 40 bucks.

Do we have a List of Amiibos yet, that are used for the Game? So I can write some? Since I use a Legit Switch to play Online.

You can't plant flowers anymore? Only using seeds? I'm honestly trying to put down some red and yellow lillies i got from other island but it won't plant. Either it gets dropped, buried or when i place it down it stays in a flower pot thing. Is it not the same as ACNL?
