It was nice seeing the cherry blossoms this morning. I also immediately caught 3 bugs that weren't available in March.

Nintendo doesn’t like using actual holiday names. I believe Christmas is "gifting day" Anyway, Easter is known as Bunny Day, and there is a rabbit named Zippers.

It’s Easter on the Japanese version, and the Easter Bunny is named Pyontarou. I guess Nintendo is walking on eggshells to not offend our western sensibilities.

I'm tempted to finally redeem my 12 month NSO card (that came with Tetris 99) just so I can take advantage of the AC Pattern website and import some photos into my game, which is a testament to what a lousy value proposition the NSO really is.

I'm more cynical about the practice and believe that it boils down to attempts to secularise the West whilst simultaneously alienating the Christian majority (while perhaps turning them away from their faith in the process).

I am not Christian, but I find it distasteful that certain holidays have been commercialised to such an extent that their original intent has been virtually robbed of all significance.

I also noticed that Blathers referred to a fossil as a "sky god" (or something to that effect) which I found really distasteful. So... games cannot refer to "God" but can refer to "gods" in a paganistic sense? I'm not hoping to start a discussion on faith, but these little details immediately struck my attention, as well as the use of modern colloquialisms and phrases that will undoubtedly date the game.

Someone recreated the A Link to the Past map in this game!
How? A data editor like the one for New Leaf?
If so, I need this! Lol

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could register some of that music on the cassette player? I bet Life on Mars would sound really interesting in Animalese.

EDIT: Ordered digital version via shopto.net for £40.85, downloading it now.
Have known of shopto for a while, but hadn't bought from them. Bought it, checked the account page about 1m later and code was there, ready to enter into Switch eshop.
i typically do as well, but AC is a game you sorta want to play every day - sometimes sessions of 10-15 minutes just to check in. getting it digital beats the hassle of putting in the cart in each time, if you're playing something else

I generally err on the side of caution with digital purchases, I prefer physical in general but especially price wise I'll leave digital to cheaper purchases. With Nintendo games often stuck that certain price points, having the option of being able to sell/trade is good.

But given I was up to 3am catching fish last night, and organising them in fish tanks like a madman on the beach, it's probably a safe purchase.
This is the first 'Animal Crossing' game I've played (not counting the brief try of the mobile game), as your say it definitely seems like a 'do a little each day' kind of experience without time skipping, which I will avoid.

I'm now on my 2nd full day, hoping to progress the museum & house construction, and if possible get to the top part of my island, currently cut off by a river.
I read that the game has amiibo support, I only have one (the Olimar/Pikmin amiibo), so when I get access to that functionality I'm curious if it will give a generic gift or something Pikmin related. Pikmin is up there with my favourite Nintendo game series, shame 'Pikmin 3' hasn't got Switch port from the WiiU.

Considering how religious groups can get their panties in a twist about the smalled damned thing in the West, Nintendo would rather not bother making claims or inference to a one true god in this all age, family friendly game. But mythological gods, gods from religions that aren't actively worshiped (Greek, Norse, etc)? That's fair game. Hell we even have a Norse god in one of the biggest movie seires ever. I doubt that certain groups would approve if Jesus was apart of the Avengers, and that's disregaurding the outrage of different groups depending on if he was played by a white or non-white actor. (And now I'm thinking about what kind of super-powers Avengers Jesus would wield. I think the water to wine would be most devistating. Assuming Thanos' troops are like humans in that they are composed of mostly water, if turning all the water in their body into wine didn't kill them it would heavily debilitate them by becoming INSTANTLY drunk).


ANYWAY, getting back on topic. I really like the progression in this game (so far anyway). It's been since the DS game since I played an AC game but the progression seemed pretty flat back then (upgrade your house, catch all the things, etc) and the fact you can't make much progress in a single session. While with NH so far, there's always a goal to reach for, even if it's just doing something to get more Nook Miles. But I felt like you can make a lot of progress between when you are forced to wait a day for something to get completed. The Nook Miles rewarded tasks also help keeping things going too, giving you short term goals you can spend time on if you hit a plataue with the island. Loving this game.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall anywhere in the Bible that says Christians were commanded to annually commemorate any of these events anyway, whether it be Christmas or Easter (which both were originally pagan holidays anyway, just absorbed by the church in an attempt to evangelize individuals and convert them). In short, if there really is a god, I really don't think he gives a rats ass either way.
