So far, not much has happened and everything feels like a blur because once all the villagers move in, progression starts feeling like a mish-mash of different things than an actual linear progression. However, I will note some small moments that actually did matter:

Birthday Event

Today is my birthday FYI and this is probably main highlight considering I can't celebrate it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When I opened up the game, villagers started saying happy birthday to be and I legit started crying because it was like the cutest fucking thing ever. One of my villagers took me to her house and had a suprize birthday party along with Buck and Egbert and it was sooo cute!

I was originally going to update the log daily but didn't for three reasons: 1) I was awfully lazy and didn't feel like it 2) I was spending a lot of time playing the game and forgot to do something and 3) the pacing of the game is reaaaaally slow compared to other games.

One thing I wasn't aware of is that the "introduction" of the game was going to last for about 7 days. This is because for the last 5 days, you are basically gathering stuff to build the houses for the villagers, building the Nook shop, waiting for the museum to be built, and (btw I am waiting for tomorrow for this to happen) getting the Town Hall built upgraded.

Compared to other games, this basically took forever. It also didn't help that I was listening to the same song for four days straight, so I can't wait to hear the hourly music once the town hall is completed.

I have the game today! However, it wasn't a very easy task as I was frantically worrying about if I was going to be able to get the game or not due to COVID-19, but I am very happy now knowing that I was one of the lucky first to get it quickly. I was originally planning on getting the game from Gamestop but hearing about how they wereforcing workers to keep the store open in areas that have shut down, I had decided against buying from them, even if it meant having to skip on the early release the before but it was worth it as I brought the game from Target and it COMES WITH A REALLY CUTE JOURNAL :D

All in all, today has been really great!!!!

Hello again! As my new adventure to New Horizons inches closer and closer, I thought it would be a cool idea to share what I created using thedodoairlines.compassport generator! I'm hoping that the game doesn't become delayed due to the virus going around.

Game Information

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the (upcoming) fifth installment of the Animal Crossing franchise for the Nintendo Switch. It will be released on March 20, 2020. The game follows the same gameplay of the previous games for the most part: running a town, collecting objects, and befriending villagers. However, unlike revious installments, this game introduces a new crafting mechanic and buildings are now built from the ground up.

I really enjoy the Animal Crossing series since New Leaf. While I haven't played the older versions such as Wild World, City Folk, or even the GameCube version (I know, I;m a fake fan lmao) I really like how calming and nonlinear the game is. It doesn't have any clear or defined goal, making the game have a lot of replayability as there's always something new, especially since the game syncs with real-life time. The most vivid memory of mine was me opening up New Leaf and visiting my friend's town (btw she was the one who got me into the game so massive thanks to her) and we were goofing off, rearranging the flowers to spell "DICK" and pushing villagers into pitfall seeds.

Other than that, the game is very notorius for giving people the the feeling to escaping the real world to another world where furries animals talk and go about their own merry way, catching bugs or watering flowers and such. And boy did this game come at the perfect time where a worldwide pandemic was happening.
