@GameDadGrant There is definitely a point early on where you need WAY more iron than you can possibly get on your island. Going to other people's islands feels bad too, because they probably need theirs, I don't want to steal it! So I just bought a lot of Nook tickets to those random, no one will ever see them but you islands to get my iron.
I should have 30 iron nuggets by tomorrow. I'm kicking myself a bit for selling a few of them the first day or two I had the game, not knowing they'd be super important later on. Like, I want to craft stronger tools but I'm not willing to use any iron at this point.
Nook gave me a nice "Happy Birthday" yesterday, and I got 2000 miles out of it. Score!
When / where can I get some emotes? I'm tired of walking around with an emotionless, dead-eyed character... hmm, perhaps this game really is a social commentary!
Also, this is one of the few times where I miss having the post at the top of each page being editable. It would be nice if we had a list of everyone's town and character names, since I have no idea who is who when I check for open towns to visit. It doesn't identify people by their Switch names.
I had to talk to an islander one thatís been with you from the start. Just keep talking to them I guess but I had passed a few milestones like expanding the house and shop - not sure if thatís needed. Iíve only unlocked some of them.
The museum is such a cool area! I wish that Blather's descriptions of the exhibits were actually on their plaques, I'd spend HOURS in there if that was the case. Kinda goofy that you can only hear them at that one time when you might be in a hurry and just trying to empty your pockets.
Anyone else trying to play the Stalk Market tomorrow? I bet if we coordinate we could get a good deal on someone's island at some point, despite the ludonarrative dissonance of basing an investment mechanism on a perishable good.
There is one feature from the past games that I really hope is back and I don't want to have it spoiled so I'll just wait and see if it gets unlocked eventually but I'm getting a little worried. We'll see!
/EDIT NEVERMIND I went and looked it up and like, they very briefly and vaguely mention it in an official Nintendo video in February, so presumably it is back, but no one online seems to have unlocked it yet? I hope it is back and not just a mistake in the video. Though it doesn't sound like it is in the form I would have liked (it wasn't in the old games either, but I had hoped it had evolved a bit.)
