Animal Crossing has Taken Over the World

We knew this was coming right? I disappear for weeks on end and I come back at the end of March with a post about Animal Crossing, only to poof until my April Monthly.

Okay, so that’s not the plan but incase it actually happens, now you know. The plan is I’m gonna write about Animal Crossing and then hopefully crank out a Rebels show review, then finally I’m gonna review Jojo Rabbit.

But back to Animal Crossing. It’s taken over the world. Yes, the world. Animal Crossing is nearly as talked about as the Corona Virus at this point but thankfully for a more positive reason.

I’m gonna talk about the game more below as well as give my thoughts on some things. If you want to play the game but avoid some spoilers please don’t read this – otherwise go on through.

I’m actually gonna start with my list of negatives before I move forward, just because the list is quite short.

Firstly, the damn tools that you get at the beginning of the game break way to easily. If you go back and watch my streams I swear to god you’ll be seeing me mostly just trying to rebuild tools half the time. It is the most annoying part of the game and I hope to god at some point I’ll get some tools that don’t break as easily.

The next part is that fishing is super difficult for me – the bobber has to be right in front of the fish or else it doesn’t see it. That’s taken some adjusting but considering I also hate fishing in Stardew Valley it’s no surprise to me that I also dislike it in Animal Crossing.

The third and final negative for me is that I am struggling to get used to the game running in real time. I need to really remember to play the game every single day (which is not hard so long as its a stream day – follow me on Twitch to watch!). Literally I loaded up my game the other day and one of my villagers gave me attitude.

Onto the rest of this review, ish.

Obviously, the game is fun. Its consumed my life. Yesterday I spent HOURS trying to find an island to sell my turnips on. Literal, actual, hours.

I was successful, to say the least.

One of my favorite things I discovered that I like to do the most is go to Mystery Islands. It’s interesting and fun and I can get all sorts of new flowers and hopefully fruit as well. All of my villagers (except one or two) were found on Mystery Islands.

The game is adorable, obviously. You get sucked into the cute animals and the pretty colors. I do hope they keep adding more things to the game to improve game play and stuff because right now I’m at a roadblock with the game.

My island isn’t nearly as nice as everyone else’s – I don’t have as many things as everyone else does and I’m kind of just winging it as I go with no plan.

I’m also getting a little bored – just because I don’t know what else to do besides just the same shit every day. I don’t know if that’s just me or everyone else – I am not time traveling to get things, I am trying to take it slow and enjoy it. I did solid enjoy the game for about three weeks of obsessive playing but I don’t know what to do now.

If anyone has any ideas, let me know below and enjoy my game captures below! Till next time!

    We bought Animal Crossing last week. My wife’s been playing it more than I have, because she’s self isolating due to a compromised immune system, while I’m still working – albeit remotely. She’s fallen in deep and has been having a blast. I had a friend ask about it, and I joked that it was “Sims … but more adorable” (and without the bad things).

      The description is not wrong at all – it is more adorable Sims without the decision to do the bad things xD
