Good Morning and Happy Saturday! We have arrived to the weekend finally, I don’t know about you guys, but it felt like the week was both long and short, not sure if that makes sense, but it’s just been a week lets just say! I hope that you’re all doing okay though and that regardless to how long and short this week felt to me, I hope it was at least good for you guys!
One good thing to happen during this week though was a very special and unexpected moment which happened within the Animal Crossing Direct yesterday on the 15th of October…..if you’re not familiar or maybe you’re not into video games or just Animal Crossing you might be new to this information or you might have already heard a bit about it, but still aren’t interested which is completely alright! For those who have heard the news and are a fan of the game in someway or form, then you are quite aware of all the goodness and beautiful things that will soon be arriving to us next month!
To explain it would be hard to do, at least here anyway, I have thoughts and feelings to it all, but I need to gather them properly to be able to give them all out in the best way, although when it comes to Animal Crossing, my favorite video game series it’s hard for me to keep calm, because I just love it so much! You can’t even see me right now as I’m just sitting here writing all of this out for you guys, but if you did….you would see me still trying to process everything from yesterday’s Direct, but like I said it would be too much to explain here so, plus I haven’t even jotted everything down that will be coming soon in the game, plus other things that I happened to miss from the Direct, which was quite a handful to be fair, I’m still learning things from it lol!
So what’s going to happen!? This post is just to say what’s to come for the next post that I’ll be sharing, I used to write these kind of post before, but I haven’t done one in quite a while so I thought I’d write one today! I’ll be recording an episode upon this topic on my podcast sometime next week, I’m thinking of recording it Wednesday! There’s some other stuff that I want to talk about for Monday, plus I’ve been doing a lot of these video game announcement thoughts episode so I thought I’d switch it up and give it a bit of a break at least until Wednesday and then I’ll find something else to talk about for Friday and maybe Saturday!
I mean we are still in the spooky month and I’ve been meaning to talk about some movies and add some music topics in there to go with the Halloween season so I want to at least finish this month with those things, I’ve been switching things around lately especially during this week so I would like to get some balance in there with recording and posting on here, so keep a look out for my Animal Crossing Direct episode where I talk about everything I felt and what I’m most looking forward to with this upcoming update we’re getting because man did they give us a lot of thing in yesterday’s direct…I’m super excited for this…it should be good so stay tune!
I’m going to try not to have that song in my head…..but I was trying to say what’s to come without spoiling anything in case some people haven’t gotten the chance to watch the direct yesterday that Nintendo showcased, although I’m sure most already know what bird I’m on about here! Just in case though I’ll do my best to not spoil the news, but what I will say is that I’m very excited, I’m so looking forward to getting this new update!
It’s been a whole year since we were given Animal Crossing New Horizons and although it too as long as it did, for us to get this update, I’m happy nonetheless, because we did eventually get what we have been wanting and I feel it’s just going to be good from here going forward with Nintendo, even if sometimes it may take a little longer I will forever love Nintendo for surprising us yesterday with the announcement that was made!
October is going to be a good month in the Animal Crossing community, now I will probably do a podcast episode about this as well, sharing my reaction to the news when I saw it and how I felt when I saw it, even though I chose not spoil anything on here, there will be spoilers in that episode regarding the upcoming update and what to expect from what I know of course!
I will also be giving my thoughts to what I feel they’ll have going with this new upcoming update that we will be getting in November from the announcement that we will be getting next month, so it’ll be a bit of predicting that I will share in the episode! I don’t know if I’ll do it today, as I already have an episode scheduled, it’s actually up now if you would like to have a listen, I’ll share it in just a moment!
Stay tune for the next episode talking about my thoughts on the Nintendo direct as well as what will be arriving in the next Animal Crossing update (That will be the main focus of the episode) I’m sooo excited and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! For the time being you can check out my newest podcast episode here:
Let's Talk: Life Control, Care Packages & The Start Of Fall Ep. 40 (Re-Upload from Sept 24th) –
Happy Thursday (Friday) and Day 2 of Fall!! In today's episode I thought we'd just let whatever we felt come out, there's a lot of different topics talked about in today's episode! I felt like I had some things that I wanted to share that was on my mind, plus I just wanted to have a bit of a chatting session, September is turning into a slightly crazy month and we're getting closer to the month of October…..
I might have accidently deleted this episode….so that’s why it’s now considered a reupload, I was working on the app from my phone and who knew that by hitting undo that it would delete a whole episode…..at least I know now! Anyway now this episode is a 27th upload instead of a 24th of Sept one!!
You know what I love!? Animal Crossing and yes i’m aware i’ve talked about this game a few times already, but I just can’t help it, it really is a good game, i’ve been playing the game since the gamecube…..okay yes and no, I did play the gamecube version, but at that time, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was meant to be doing in it, so I didn’t play it that much, it wasn’t until I got New Leaf to where I understood the whole concept of the game!!
I never played Wild World at least I don’t remember ever playing it……I did play City Folk though, I never had it personally, but my cousin did, I asked to borrow it a long time ago, pretty sure he’s forgotten and so I went and kept it, still have it too, he doesn’t mind, I don’t think he played it much anyway…..to be fair, I think I only played it a few times when I borrowed it, haven’t played it since though, but I did play it!!
Now we have New Horizons and I just love it!! I even went and created a second Island, I did the same thing when I was always playing New Leaf, I bought another copy so I could start from the beginning without deleting my other town……I then later traded that town in thinking I wasn’t going to miss it……in a way I do miss, but only because I would’ve liked to have seen my very first town after not playing it for a while, buuut you know it’s fine.
That aside though Animal Crossing is pretty much my life, not an exaggeration, what I mean by that is I really do love this game, but moving on, I wanted to create some kind of Wishlist, with the release of New Horizons we were introduced to the new add ons, by that I mean Nintendo had the thought of changing things up not just with the new Island setting,
but having it be based around updates, so instead of having all the holidays within the Animal Crossing world just automatically being there like in the previous games, they’ve now been coming in as updates to keep things fresh and new and so that people don’t go spoiling all the big events for other people that have yet to be seen, but with the new updates addition
That’s been brought to New Horizons, you’ve got people making Wishlists on what they’d like to see added to the game or what they feel needs to be improved on, which is pretty cool, I mean there are still a lot of things that have yet to be introduced with the game so to be able to give suggestions on what could be added because of that, is probably one of the best features that Nintendo ever introduced us to now even with the ideas that we may give, obviously they won’t go adding all of them, but there is a possibility that some of the ideas that we may have for the game could be a future add in if not at least a consideration of some sort and with that possibility,
You know that we’re bound to get our creative juices flowing!! Now with my Wishlist, I might not actually have a lot that i’d want added either because I still have yet to think of what I would like to see be brought to New Horizons or mainly due to what everyone else already suggested, but i’m gonna try and think here, see if I can come up with 5 things and if not then at least 3…..
I’ll admit this one being already suggested, however everyone seems to agree on it, so technically it’s nothing new, but i’d really like for Nintendo to bring back the Cafe (a.k.a) the Roost, so we can see Brewster, it been a thing in all of the games so it should be a thing in New Horizons, now with that, there is a chance that we will get this added eventually,
now I don’t really like spoilers so if you know the details on when, please don’t tell me because I want to be surprised whenever it ends up being announced by Nintendo….that being stated, it’d be nice to have a cafe in the game again, I liked visiting the roost and hearing the theme song and also getting to hang out with Brewster, if they don’t end up bringing him back for some reason, although I don’t see why they wouldn’t!?
but if they don’t, it’d be cool to see who they do add to the cafe when it is brought back…..eventually, I just want a cafe just like everyone else, this one highly requested, but we’ll just have to wait and see on it!!
I had to think on this one a bit, but there was one thing that kept popping up and that was Label, if you don’t know Label she is the third sister to the Able Sisters Sable and Mable, she used to be called Labelle and worked with Gracie in the old days, but now she’s on her own Fashion journey, but it’d be nice if she was given her own shop and if not that, then have her working with her sister again, better yet, just upgrade the able Sisters shop all together, that’s something we’ve never had in the other games so why not add that towards the list I mean Nooks Cranny got an upgrade so why shouldn’t the Able Sisters get one as well!? JUST SAYING!!
Number 3: KAPP’N WE NEED KAPP’N THAT IS ALL!!
No i’m kidding, well yes, but also that’s not it, I can’t seem to think of anything else i’d like to see added, so with the next 2-3 add in’s we’ll go more on what i’d like for Nintendo to improve on, one of them being able to do the crafting and such in a grouping kind of way what I mean is Clams and Nook Miles, for example with the clams if there’s 10 of them that should be considered a whole bad of bait instead of it being 1 bait, 2, bait, 3 bait, 4…..you get it!!
It already takes a while to dig up the clams, it shouldn’t take another long while to craft them when those 10 clams could literally be put into one round-up of bait…..I really hope Nintendo takes this one into consideration and improve on it cause people aren’t going to look for clams that’s been added specifically with this game if they’re just going to be crafted one by one, if you want to make it easy just do what you did with the fences when crafting them and add that feature to the clams as well!!
As for Nook Miles, being able to have the option to choose how many Nook Mile Tickets we want to redeem would be nice, with this suggestion I always think about Pokemon and when you’re gathering Potions and restocking on the Poke’ball and how you’re able to choose how many you’d like, I really appreciate Pokemon for this because not only does it save time, but it also keeps it simple and you gotta love that!! I hope Animal Crossing takes a page out of Pokemon’s book because this feature is better!! sorry…..
We’re going to try and get to five here…..here’s another idea that I just thought about, more villager interaction, for example having them come over like they used to or having more games you can play with them besides treasure hunt every once in a while stuff like that, I mean we’re already living on the same Island why not have these kind of features,
I know people talk about wanting more dialog and them having more personality and that, which yes I agree on, but it’d be nice to really hang out with your villagers at times, maybe even have it to where they randomly ask something of their favorite thing, see how much you know them, it’s just an idea…..
Last idea attempt…..Number 5:
I don’t know how great of idea this one is, but it’s in my head so i’ll share it…..maybe and this is a big maybe…..have some special NPC’s make a cameo, an appearance of some sort, so what they did with Reese and Cyrus, maybe have Phineas make a surprise appearance or have Dr. Shrunk appear again, I think having some of the favorite NPC’s that people enjoyed seeing would be nice, even if it’s just for the moment,
Maybe we won’t see them a lot, but it’d be nice if we could have them show up on the Island for a visit and maybe they would have some kind of rare treasures that you can’t really get playing the game everyday or most days, Even if you created another May Day kind of Maze thing and add some of them there like you did with Rover, have that be like a special event that we get here and there, that too would be great, I mean with that we’d always be excited for something and plus I think it’d be nice if we could get a visit from some of the other special characters.
That’s my wishlist for now, I honestly don’t have anything else to add, at least in this one, I might go and make another one when other ideas strike of course, but that’s all for now, let me know what you’d like to see as future updates if you too play Animal Crossing: New Horizons and with that i’ll see you all in the next post!! ^_^
