  1. Code Geass is a weird one for me, I never ever understood what people liked about it, how it ranked among all the best series. The art style is like some weird 90s throwback and the main character so unlikeable... and it seemed to constantly hop between relying on grim, unsettling misfortunes and weird school anime tropes... I tried a couple of times but could never get more than a couple of episodes in.

    I'm not trying to trash something you've just given high praise to I just never got it. Should I have given it a better shot?

    clearly you’re underestimating how different our financial situation as your “even just” is more money than I made on my last exchange :heh: and the suggestion that I would require multiple runs emoji3.png

    Well if you can find a place with a turnip sell price of 500 then you'd have to be spending less than 20k on turnips to not even make 99k. You can get over 16k bells a day just hitting 1 rock!

    I did find somewhere selling in Saturday evening for 500+ but there was a queue, I entered in 98th position at 8pm, by 9pm I was 38th, and then suddenly the gate closed :blush:

    There’s only one money rock between two of us, and I don’t play every day. I do know I could’ve got a good deal if I’d come here on Thursday but I just didn’t get chance to look that day.

    It’s not like I’m complaining here, I don’t really mind how things turned out, just that not everyone plays the game the same, I’m happy with a much more chilled approach. If it takes me months/years longer than everyone else to build my house, I don’t mind

    I managed to sell my turnips at a profit in the end, but probably not a lot. I'm not being funny, but this part of the game feels like actual stress I can do without. Don't think I'll be going in to buy turnips every week.

    If you're willing to use Twitter or Animal Crossing-specific community websites it's a dead cert you'll sell them for loads. Just got to look in the right places and try not to let the insane load times/people joining get to you.

    These people all seem to be asking for silly tips though. Like some of them want more in tip than I will earn from the turnips. People don’t realise not everyone powergames AC...

  4. I definitely like this game a lot more in the second half. There's some consistently infuriating parts and the dialogue/cutscenes occasionally get barf-level corny but the overall gameplay etc is much better. I'm pretty close to the end and then I accidentally read a trophy that sounds like a huge spoiler, but we'll see.

  5. So I have to say my initial reservation about only one island on the Switch definitely proved to be founded. I don't play the game at all, because it's my SO's. And she likes to do everything every day, shake every tree, hit every rock, hand in every creature and fossil. I couldn't bring myself to take that away. So really I'm just a blight on her island still in my first house with one room and a camper bed. I don't mind, I didn't buy the game and I'm happy to let it be hers. But I wish I could have my own island, too.

  6. When I got to chapter 9/10 I started to like the game more, I think it gets a lot better from there. The combat is a lot better against easy to medium enemies, but anything fast or particularly dangerous it's still very frustrating. There's just not enough ways to counter fast moving attacks, and the amount of things that can interrupt your attacks and magic really make you feel powerless at times. However, yeah, I would definitely say overall I'm liking the game a lot more now.

  7. I'm at chapter 8 and I just can't decide if I like this or not.

    Which I guess means I don't.

    I think I'm only playing it because I wanted it for so long, and the music and beautiful reimagining of everything is something special.

    But the combat and linear gameplay are shite.

    Tried it out last night. Watched Coco, and it worked flawlessly. HD picture with no stuttering, buffering or anything.

    HD picture?? I was about to jump in but I'm not going to if its such low resolution :/

    I bought from Daisy Mae for 105 and the Nooklets are buying them  for 164 bells this evening. I'm thinking about going for it but I just know as soon as I do, the price will quadruple!

    Talk about a blast from the past! Long time no see :) hope you're keeping well.

    164 bells gives me a bit of hope. I'll take a chance and wait a little longer.
