Animal Crossing New Horizons. Shops and how to upgrade them
There are a number of shops to unlock in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Although they are somewhat inevitable it is nice know how to unlock them all and get your island to 5 stars as fast as possible.
We've broken down all the building that you can have and what steps you need to complete in order to get them.
- Catch 5 Fish or bugs and give them to Tom Nook, He’ll ask you to place the tent for Blathers, the museum director.
- Once open the temporary museum tent will allow you to give Blathers more donations. Give him 15 more items for the museum.
- Wait for the full museum to open!
- Timmy and Tommy will require you to bring them supplies in order for them to open the store. (30 Wood, 30 Hardwood, 30 Softwood, 30 iron nuggets)
- Choose the location for Nook’s cranny!
This sounds easy but the reality is that you need both an Axe and a shovel to reach this goal. Even with those in hand you’ll likely have to travel to multiple mystery islands to find all the iron if you want to do it in a single day.
Upgrading to the general store is a bit of an unknown so far. From what we can find it seem that a few things are/could be needed:
It’s unclear at this time which one (or more) of these items needs to be completed to open the full general store. Different players stated different amounts in these categories when they received the upgrade so it is tough to say with certainty what exactly is required. As long as you’re logging in and playing every day though you should likely reach all those milestones by day 30 anyhow.
- 30 days play after the opening of Nooks Cranny
- Having reached the credits
- Having donated a certain amount of fossils, bugs and fish to the museum
- Having spent a large amount of Bells
- Having spent a large amount of Nook Miles
- Once opening Nook’s Cranny you’ll see Mabel inside, talk with her.
- Watch for her in the town square
- Purchase items from her. Like lots of stuff when you see her. Might take a couple visits
- During one appearance she’ll give you a Tailor shop kit to place
- Pick a place and
- Talk to Tom after Nook’s Cranny has been built
- Select a location for a bridge
- Select locations for four housing plots
- Craft all required furniture for these plots
- Wait for residents to move in (you may need to invite people from mystery islands)
- Once all new residents have moved in (one per day) construction on the upgraded Resident Services will begin.
- Expand Resident Services building
- Make the campsite construction kit
- Place campsite
You can now invite animals who camp at your island to live there. You can also now talk to Tom and start buying and placing more plots for houses.
The remaining 7 houses that you can place on the island are unlocked after completing the Campsite. In order to build them you mush "purchase" land from Tom Nook. He'll charge you 10,000 bells and in turn give you a plot that you can place down somewhere. It may seem like a lot of money but you do receive 1000 Nook Miles once a new resident moves in. You also are unable to reach a full 5 Stars until you've attained a full roster of animals on your island.

Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.

Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
This quirky throwback to old style gaming got me hooked pretty quickly. Even with it's simple play style the game offers a variety of challenges that'll keep you staring that the screen.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!

Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
