    Fun for the new fan experience but if the bulk of the sales are from AC/fans you will have a Pokémon outrage because they will expect a similar but improved system

    Updates for bugs vs updates for added content/mods is lost in translation one is bad testing (bad) vs added content/mods (good) :yay:

    yes, a game that has been around since 2013 and has recieved updates up until 2016 has more content than a game that just released 2 months ago. doesnt make the entire product unfinished

    I don't know.
    I don't care about those posts, really.
    What really bothers me is the lack of news regarding Metroid Prime 4.

    Hey, id take free dlc that people say we shoulda had at launch, over paid dlc that we shoulda had for free lol.

    New horizons is my first animal crossing, so this feels like a nice new experience. It was cool how my wife started playing for the first time 2 days ago, and asked me if it was possible to swim. I said no. She said, aw man that woulda been soo cool. Lol

    Vocal minorities. It's impossible to please everyone.
    "Packed"
    I don't think you understand. Most games with DLC these days have 5+ different ones and many have tens or hundreds of different skins, weapons, characters, etc. Pokemon and Zelda have like 2. That's nothing.

    Who got tricked? I don't understand why you people come to these threads just to complain. Y'know, upon the game's release, they explained why they were going to roll out DLC like this. On top of not wanting to ship out a broken mess, they wanted to focus on small aspects like this post-release so that they don't have to be rushed, and so they can have content for each season/holiday. Again, I dunno who you think is being fooled here. Long standing fans of the game know it's not a new mechanic, and new players will actually have something new to experience. I know it's cool to hate things on the internet just for the sake of it, but it's getting really tiresome.
    Kinda surprised it hasn't been mentioned here, but the original trilogy is being remastered, so there's that at least.

    Cool, 3 or 4 more updates and it will be on par with New Leaf, a 3DS game.

    One of my first thoughts after getting ACNH was literally "we're on an island and you can't go skinny di... I mean, swimming in the ocean? What gives?" Glad to see they're finally rectifying this. B-)

    No, arguably the high point of the series in terms of features and content. New Horizons sold more for sure, but it is all thanks to New Leaf.

    It's pretty obvious that the game would have been delayed even further if they didn't do these updates. I really don't mind them adding those minor things as updates instead of delaying the game for months.

    The new strategy of good game devs

    1. Release focused, polished game
    2. Allow coders to continue working and developing on ideas which would have otherwise been cut due to time constraint
    3. Continue employing coders and others so they can maintain a consistent paycheck, making for happy workers less stressed about where their next paycheck is coming from
    4. Start work on the next game's design and development while coders are still working on the older game
    5. Switch coders and others to new game once they're needed, allowing for a seamless transition between game development cycles
    6. rinse, repeat

    Not really interested in the July update, but it's cool I guess.
