So I started a completely fresh experience today playing Animal Crossing. Oh sure i've heard things from people who ahve played the game and mostly loved everything about it but I've never palyed it before so its new. Starting the new game I met the iconic figure of the quitar playing dog ( i didn't catch his name) and then I moved onto the train segment to set the game clock. While Rover was a bit over enthused about life, the train segment was a interesting interaction with the game as it extracted information using phrases that are genuinely associated with a one or the other gender. After the train segment i met Tom Nooks. Who, in exchange for making me an indentured servent, allowed me to have a house (i've seen dog houses that are bigger) to call my own. Also just outside the house is a very very strange little thing called a gyroid who apparently you can train to greet people and records the things you do throughout the day. I completed the first job for Tom Nooks, which was planting some flowers and tree saplings, and the stopped for the night.
