Well that wasn't "right" before. Like 3 months.
Well that wasn't "right" before. Like 3 months.
Honestly people treat the info we have as 'just knowing that it will take on an island' and nothing more ,and that's just not true.
i’m less sure with how backwards nintendo can be. i love animal crossing new leaf but i’m not totally sold on new horizons yet, but i’m looking very forward to feb 20I don't know. I'd rather have some surprises to a game than being spoonfed every single piece of info beforehand (see Pokémon). Of course the game is gonna have stores and stuff, it'd be asinine to take that out. The way they're gonna implement I'd rather not know.
There's emotes in the game, they're unlockables, but I don't want to know how to unlock them etc.
I'd say there's enough info at the moment for day one buyers. And the embargo lifts on Feb 20 so there's probably loads of impressions after that.
Not much more than that. You brought up pokemon ironically, and sword and shueld barely showed anything before launch, including that stuff like the gts being dropped and other important things to know.
I just want to hear that music to new game play. They could literally release an hour long "ASMR" video of different villagers walking around and I'd go nuts.
This is different though. No set layouts and an island, crafting stuff, etc. People want to know what will be in.
Nintendo is doing a shit job of marketing New Horizons, but you're going overboard on the hand wringing about it. Like...a lot.The other thing is that New Horizons is so fundamentally different from past games. It takes such a dramatic lateral step that my first (disappointed) reaction was “it’s a spinoff.” I warmed to the game based on the assumption that over time you build up the island into one the lovely towns you used to live in in the games, but given that the most recent trailer opens with “Welcome to Deserted Island Life” and that emphasis, I may need to tone down that assumption.
I'm also having trouble to understand this line of thinking. If I'm interested in a game and want to buy it, why would I all of a sudden be distracted enough by shiny shiny new announcements and decide to not buy it? Conversely, if I'm not gonna buy a game anyway because it doesn't seem appealing to me, I don't suddenly decide to buy it just because there's nothing else on the horizon.
lots of minutes of footage =/= lots of information. This would be the equivalent of Nintendo showing off an hour of footage from the cap kingdom that never shows off the capture mechanic or any enemies for Mario Odyssey. It’s almost all literally from the the first day of gameplay.
Based on nothing (which is basically what we have) many are assuming the game has plenty of content. I am assuming it MAY not. How is my line of thinking more foolish than assuming unshown features in a game that releases in a month?
Can you not understand what people are saying? This is shown to be pretty different than usual. On an island, crafting, etc. This doesn't look exactly like the first 4 games.
I want to put that gif of Melisandre giving birth to shadow Stannis but
Could you please not make implications about my understanding? That's pretty uncalled for and rude. Who are you to question my (lack of) intelligence?
To people who don’t give a shit about Animal Crossing it’s all the same. “Psssh, it’s Animal Crossing, whaddya wanna know? That there are stores??”
At some point, it's Animal Crossing. It's not going to somehow devolve to sub N64 levels of content.
The trouble is that I don’t want to know details either, I’m just very concerned that the dream I’ve developed of building a town to the level of past games isn’t where the game’s interests lie. If there were a “welcome to village life” trailer, tagline, or any marketing statement that implies that such an endgoal is part of the game, I’d breathe easy and cherish how little we know.Could you please not make implications about my understanding?

I'm not stating anything in your second or third sentence. I am just saying that I think that if people are not hyped now, a direct won't change anything. Sure I want to know how the different mechanics and progressions work too but I don't personally want that info given to me because I want to find it out myself.
Do you really think that’s not how the game is going to end up? I can’t imagine what you are picturing.The trouble is that I don’t want to know details either, I’m just very concerned that the dream I’ve developed of building a town to the level of past games isn’t where the game’s interests lie.

Take that with a grain of salt. I have seen tons of times where they had a "scoop" for pokemon and it ended up being nothing.
Yeah I remember that happening recently as well, and it is disappointing. Trying not to hope for anything too big from this as I'm sure we are getting that AC direct next week, but even if it is just new villager renders or clothes being shown, at least it's something new
Yeah, at the very least we'll get something similar to previous games.
Animal Crossing is one of their biggest series, they aren't going to sabotage it. Nintendo makes a lot of brain dead decisions, but destroying the core of Animal Crossing is some real "Nintendo is doomed" level of pessimism.
Asked for a ban, dunno the time.
And spread the craziness over the other threads?
This is a seriously tough question. My mind is saying Breath of the Wild 2, but my heart is saying Odyssey 2.
Breath of the tWo because Animal Crossing is in 5 weeks from today.
Traditional Paper Mario. Only because that's the one I believe is least likely to happen in my lifetime.
