  1. I was feeling so bored in this game that I haven’t played it in over a week. It just seemed like nothing interesting ever happens in it. And my island feels so blah. Then again, I’m deeply involved with Days Gone on the PS4, so maybe that’s preventing me from seeing something in Animal Crossing that I can’t see. I do intend to return to A.C. though. I hope it starts getting more interesting. Fossil collecting is really getting tiresome this time around. Especially having to hear Blathers say the same stupid things over and over. I haven’t seen K.K. Slider even once yet.

    1. Even when your island has enough stars, you have to talk to Isabelle. I didn’t know that, and when I talked to her, apparently I wasn’t high enough… but I must have been high enough at one point because she had a letter, and then he came, and now he comes every Saturday. So I must have had the prerequisites for him awhile ago, I just hadn’ talked to Isabelle to trigger it.

    2. I mean animal crossing is a creative type game, so you either like it or you don’t, as for me I can play it up to like a whole day or even 8 hours, you have to put effort in to it to find it interesting, people have a lot of creative nintendo base towns, and even tv show base towns, they should really add dream suite just so you can get an idea on how you want your island to shape up.

  2. That’s what Super smash bros ultimate gets for putting in the worst Zelda and putting in Piranha plant over Waluigi.
