  2. This thread is filled with "I HATE THEY ADDED THE NEW scrote HAIRCUT and also the r-rest of the thing that miss guys It’s not racism I actually care about what’s missing"
    At least try to make it a bit less obvious

  3. You are trying too hard to shit on what it’s honestly a good game (for an animal crossing game)
    The fact a pidgeon giving you a short cutscene about money for 200 money was the most wanted feature is enough proof of the fact the game was fundamentally "right"

  4. Now it’s a dollhouse in every way. They just cemented it in the last direct. Most of the update is just more decoration and they added the dollhouse game as a mode. Villagers have literally zero agency anymore now that you micromanage their houses too. They don’t even have the free will to fuck up their own houses. What’s the point of giving dialogue when they don’t even act like people anymore? Just accessories you can dress up. The actual life sim aspect is completely dead.

    I remember barely any cases when devs actually kept the promise and fixed their shit. More often it’s release 2-3 patches during first few months and then completely abandon the game.

  6. They cut it short from the 3 years of updates because they were able to finish all their work ahead of schedule
    There’s no excuse for the price of the DLC though it’s insane, pumped up to shill the online expansion

  7. Why are we acting like the other Animal Crossing games WEREN’T just waiting games. All you ever did was grind for the option to buy more items at once.

  8. Op can shut the fuck up. What animal crossing should I emulate? I’ve never touched the series but I feel like that kind of game. Suggest others if you want I’m only playing one.

    • GameCube has the best dialogue and the most “unique” feeling.
      New Leaf has the most content
      Avoid City Folk and New Horizons

      Wild World is also really good

    • The gamecube one is the best one to play casually if you just want to test the waters. It has the biggest town and the best neighbourhood sim elements. The DS one is alright too but you only have like 6 neighbors compared to 15. Every game afterwards slowly slides from neighbourhood sim to godmode sandbox with NH being the tipping point where it just basically gives up on the sim elements.

    • depends how much do you like high-pitched squeaks that form the "dialogue", and how often do you want to reroll your village for a better map layout?

  9. Honestly if they were gonna do another HHD game, I think making it as a DLC expansion onto another base game so that you can share your catalog and progress is a lot better than actually making it a second standalone game. For 30$ it better be as fleshed out as the 3DS HHD was though.

    The only actual loss is not getting the designer mode for your main island, that’s fucking stupid.

    • You do get it for your main island, actually. You just have to design a certain number of vacation homes first before you can touch up your villagers homes

    source?

    seems contradictory

    • Does that make it right? I hate the idea that conmen should be allowed to get away with shit like this because "normies deserve it" or "what did you expect?", it’s the reason why garden gnomes have been allowed to keep all of us under their thumb for the past century.
