No clue who's gonna post in here or even see this but I'M MAKING THIS THREAD ANYWAY cause I'M EXCITED.

I probably won't be getting this day 1, but I'm super fucking pumped to play this regardless. Who else is playing? What are you excited for? Do you have your island planned out? Which starting villagers are you hoping for? Which villagers do you hope move in?

Only two things that concern me are the "one island per switch" and "only backup saves with Switch Online" things which are weirdly unnecessary and classist. Other than that, everything has been looking phenomenal.

Anyway. Here's my Switch friend code if you don't have it:

Yeah, but sometimes I do enter Discords with ~20 people and it feels like walking into a conversation and having everyone stop and stare at you. XD

I prefer entering new groups silently and scoping things out before posting but Discord has a habit of shouting your name when you join and I hate it.

I wouldn't worry too much about that, any discord with more than 20 users is chaos so you wont be remembered unless you post constantly.

Totally agree with you on the forum v discord comparison.
Its hard to keep up with all the messages on discord and it varies so much. At least with the forums you can always pick up from where you started and then jump to the latest posts.

What sort of computer are you running atm?

Been seriously thinking about upgrading to a desktop now that I'm settling down but my late 2012 Macbook Pro is still standing and puttering along so its hard to give up until its literally un-usable. Especially to get a new Macbook its like a grand!

Just a giant tower with an i7. Would have been more interesting 5 years ago, but it's still pretty nice. Also it's FIXED. Finally.

Speaking of laptops, I need to do the reverse and get one. I do all of my work at home, but I shouldn't have to deal with situations like the past 5 months where I'm out of a computer.

Never really used chat apps much but I ended up using discord since after GAF imploded taht were all teh peopel who talked about manga went.

I never understood how Discord worked so I never joined until RMS happened. I still don't fully understand it, but I'm getting there. I'm only part of like 3 servers.

Been doing okay! Computerís been dead since September so Iíve been trying to get that fixed, hopefully should be back up and running soon. Itís awkward using the forums on my phone which is why I post here so little atm. Discord is fun but it can feel a bit claustrophobic at times. I do miss the various threads and expansive categories and stuff. Discord is very in the moment and is a bit hard to casually catch up with older messages since itís just a chatroom. A whole conversation can pass and youíll never see it. I like it but Iíll always prefer forums over any other platform.

Manic!

Not my life but good to hear from you on the forums.
Yeah seems a lot of people have moved to discord - shame as I really enjoyed seeing like targeted topics each day getting updated on what people playing, listening, doing, or updates with their life.

How are you Manic?
Life's been throwing me quite a few opportunities that i'm trying to reel in hopefully without complication: interview for a new job or position, moving into a new place whilst finding someone to take over my current place, parents fixing up their house but having problems due to age and health
Still its nice to be busy rather than sitting and thinking about my next moves

All the horror shows Iíve watched this and last year:

Black Spot
Black Lake
Dark
Missions
Beyond the Walls

My fav has probably been Black Spot. A nice place between chill and terrifying. Reminds me a lot of Twin Peaks, minus the Lynchian. Canít wait for more episodes.
