I'm not a person that harps on games for tutorials much but yeah I hope the next AC game doesn't have a tutorial-like thing in the beginning (stuff like always starting off with a jock and a sisterly villager, the next three villagers plus the first two having their "starter" homes based on personality types, etc). And that whole thing where we had all those bugs laying around while the museum had to be built! I liked it when you got a random assortment of villagers from the beginning in AC:NL (don't know previous games before that).

I think this was less a "tutorial" and more just...making the early game a "game". You have more cutscenes, explicit missions and a designated end state (getting KK on the island & seeing the credits with a song you cant get otherwise).

You are building up the island to a town, stuff like building a shop or getting the museum in or setting up the villagers, has elements of a tutorial (here's how you build things, for example) but its not to be a tutorial and some things that happen during it dont happen anywhere else in the game.

The next game in the series will likely not tread the same ground just because it wont necessarily be the "island getaway package" aesthetic.

e: Also always starting with a Jock & Sister was probably more for aesthetic purposes. They also took the getaway package so they chose the 2 personality types that would be most likely to pick up their lives and live on a deserted island. So wahtever the next game is, will probably not do that again.

I didn’t mind the short tutorial when you first start a new game because it teaches you the new mechanics of the game and lets you decide what to craft right after making the tools and explore your Island. I also didn’t mind the preset personalities of your first two Residents as the three I detest the most aren’t in either and I got two good characters being Teddy and Katt. Teddy moved out but I still kept Katt and plan on keep her along with Boomer, Cranston, Piper, Freya, And Fauna. Flurry is in the middle for me right now. I just wish that I had Poppy’s Amiibo card as she is my favorite Resident ever but Boomer is my second so I’m satisfied with what I e got other than O’Hare.

I’m really annoyed. That ugly Groucho moved in without any warning and now I’m stuck with TWO Residents that I hate. I had built another House that I was going to have Miranda move into via Amiibo because she only needed to be invited one more time before moving in. After that I was going to build the last house to get Merry to move in through an Amiibo card but now that plan is ruined! But seeing Amiibo cards being restocked is nice. I plan on getting more to see if I can at least get Poppy.
 
I have good news and bad news, Here's who moved in without me knowing,

Meet Bitty! *cue the wretching sounds*


Good news! And also a new addition, Fuchsia!


And also one of the best came: Zucker! y'all know who he is, so no pic.

Bitty doesn't seem so bad. While I have my favorites, I certainly wouldn't mind if she showed up one day. Fuchsia, though, is really cool!

Meanwhile, I have Nate who has long become The Thing That Would Not Leave. Yaaahhh...!

Then I question the point of posting in this thread at all.

In other news, the final Bug Off of the year was today. I mainly just phoned it in by doing the one round for the Nook Miles, since I already got all the trophies the first time around.

I got rid of Groucho by getting Miranda to move in via Amiibo. He moved in Thursday. Now I’m going to finally kick out O’Hare with Merry via Amiibo. I got Flip today as well which is how I managed to get rid of that ugly Groucho so quickly after he moved in uninvited.

Well, nothing about this update is particularly surprising. Growing pumpkins is a little odd, but nothing that will really add anything of substance to the game. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the Halloween stuff, but that was exactly what we were expecting to get. I was hoping for either something new and/or surprising.

Regardless, I'm looking forward to decorating my town for Halloween. I had a lot of fun decorating it for Easter, and now that I actually have a developed town, it should be even more interesting.

Speaking of, I'm trying to figure out if this pumpkin furniture is the Halloween furniture set, or a seasonal furniture set. It's reminiscent of the traditional Spooky set, though quit different. Since we still have the trading candy with Jack for Halloween thing going on, I have to assume that that's separate from growing pumpkins to make pumpkin furniture. Perhaps instead of giving us the now somewhat redundant Spooky set, Jack will give us the Creepy Set instead. Honestly, I kind of hope so, I've always liked the Creepy Set more than the Spooky Set.

And what's wrong with that? Isn't it a good thing to be able to put so many hours into a game? Most games you get bored of by 40-50 hours. The fact that you can put so many into this game means you're getting a whole lot more enjoyment out of it, as well as more time playing for the amount of money you spent.

Did 1 round on this year's last Bug-Off. Completed all four events.

Now onto the Fishing Tournament, which is next month!
 
Bug-off was dissapointing to mee, as before is started, bugs were everywhere. During the three minutes, only four. :mad:
