    Ep. 158: New Horizons and Pocket Camp Updates

    Some new updates have come to Animal Crossing New Horizons and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. This week, we discuss these updates in depth. We start with a small check in with our gameplay. From there, we do a deep dive into what is coming to New Horizons. After that, Sergio takes us through all the new features that have been added to Pocket Camp. Finally, we end the show with our Haken's Islander Corner and ask our patrons what they think of the date locked events.

    Ep. 157: First Time Animal Crossing Players

    This week, Nina, Sergio and I interview people who are playing Animal Crossing for the first time with Animal Crossing New Horizons. We ask them about their experience with the game prior to playing and how they have enjoyed the game thus far. I get to interview my partner, Jackie, Nina interviews her best friend Meechie, and Sergio gets to interview one of our listeners, Nathan. After those interviews, we meet back up to ask our patrons about when they first heard about Animal Crossing.

    Ep. 156: ACNH Sales and Performance Issues

    Ep. 156: ACNH Sales and Performance Issues

    This week, Nintendo has given us their latest financial update and the numbers for Animal Crossing New Horizons are huge. The game continues to sell like crazy and is on track to become the best selling Nintendo Switch game of all time. We discuss the numbers and what they could mean for the future of the series. We then talk about the performance issues we've been experiencing with New Horizons. Both Sergio and I have had our games crash and Nina has overstuffed her island to the point where frames drop and pop in becomes prevalent. Finally, we ask our patrons what their most heartbreaking Animal Crossing moment was.

    Ep. 155: New Horizons Halloween Recap

    Ep. 155: New Horizons Halloween Recap

    We're here in November and it's time for some brand new artwork for Haken: An Animal Crossing Podcast from Audrey Isaacson! She has made a wonderful piece that truly captures the autumn season in Animal Crossing New Horizons. We talk about her piece and read her statement for the piece. From there, we recap the Halloween event by giving a brief guide on the events. We then discuss our experience with the event and what we'd change about it. We then give a quick look at November and the upcoming treats! Finally, we ask our patrons if they could have a conversation with any Animal Crossing character, who would they pick and what would they talk about.

    Ep. 154: Haken Post Office Q&A

    This weekend is Halloween, but since none of us time travel, we've got nothing to talk about quite yet! So on this quiet news week, we dig into our mailbox and answer some questions from our listeners. We got a lot of really great questions from everybody and have a fun time going over everything. After that, we ask our patrons what they would like to get updated with home customization in New Horizons.

    Ep. 153: Amiibo Collecting and ACNH Datamine

    Animal Crossing amiibo cards are making a return in November. With them being a highly sought after item, I take some time to give you tips on the best way to complete a set. I also give advice on finding the characters you want the most. From there, we go over the latest datamine and some of the possible features that can come to Animal Crossing New Horizons in the future. Finally, we ask our patrons to create their own villager. What villager would you create if Nintendo were to hire you?

Representation Matters

Overall this is one of my favorite podcasts. Thank you for bringing us joy in some of the darkest of times, Team Haken! I appreciate how friendly the pod is even for those (like me) whose first AC game was New Horizons. Additionally, the fact that Chuy and Sergio are Latinx makes the pod even more special. Seeing (or hearing in this case! Haha) people who look like you, or come from similar communities doing great things is so powerful. Can’t wait for my daughter to start playing AC someday so we can listen to our favorite podcast together. Knowing she will be able to look up to gamers like you guys, and womxn gamers like Nina is everything. I can’t thank you enough Team Haken! Y’all are at the top of my “I wish we were friends” list haha 😂

I love you guys!!!

Thanks so much for delivering me all the Animal Crossing news and conversation I need in my life. It’s so fun hearing you guys talk about the game, and your convo always gives me new perspective on New Horizons or reminds me of things I’d forgotten about the older games. Keep on doing what you do! 💜

Love this podcast! ❤️

Love to listen to this podcast before bed because they are all so sweet and give such good feedback on the game. I highly recommend this podcast! 😁
