    The theory that the Player character is some kind of super human worker compared to everyone else in town because Joja works their employees to the bone with soul crushing labor that the farm work and such is actually a refreshing step down kind of holds weight.

    Also this game is bleak if you look past the charm.

    One of my favorite things is that it's very aware of how awful life in small towns can be these days and the challenges people there face. Even your efforts to improve the place have some side effects despite generally having a positive impact.

    The game makes it pretty clear that your idyllic lifestyle enabled by inheriting an entire farm is set in a place where other people's dreams go to die. All its missing is a narcotic epidemic of some sort.

    I wish I could hire "farmhands" from the townsfolk.

    Pah, in my day you had to crawl through the skull mines uphill both ways to get enough iridium to craft a band.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Got my first Omni Geode from completing one of the easier Community Center bundles.

    The first one Clint cracked open for me contained a Prismatic Shard.

    I have never, in all my other farms, ever found even a single Prismatic Shard and now, here it is, barely into Summer Year 1.

    Fruit is pretty much a universal like for the entire town. Make sure and plant max amount of fruit trees in your greenhouse, or check the fruitbat cave daily so you always have some fruit handy to give away to everyone you pass.

    Also, a gold star Caluiflower is the best thing to put in the soup.

    Given a lot of the systems it's hard to picture a server based approach. There's only so many spots you can put a cabin on the farms, only so many marriage candidates, etc. And that's on top of the much smaller team involved even with Chuckle Fish doing a lot of the work for multiplayer.

    Do we have any idea when the 1.3 update might hit the non-PC versions? Are we thinking days, weeks, months? I got my super cute guidebook in the mail today (thanks for the recommendations) and I'm ready to get my farm on, but I'd kinda like to wait until the new single player changes/enhancements are put into my Switch version before I get started.

    At this point it's still very much a beta with many bugs so we're likely still waiting for the finished release before it gets spread to consoles. Right now we're still in the land of players teleporting when fishing and the like.

    That's why I always buy a calendar fairly early on. That way, a quick check of everything takes maybe an hour of in-game time, which isn't near long enough to be tempted into completing the entire day and allowing me to shut the game off.

    I should log off but I finally got enough to build that coop.

    Oh and if I fish for awhile, I'll have enough left over to buy some animals for it tomorrow.

    Shit...but tomorrow is a festival event. And the day after that is the last day before gift giving resets for the week and I still have a lot of people to..

    So you can't finish Clint's storyline if you're really good friends with Emily.

    Well, thats just dumb.
    We're just pals, theres no romance going on. Its essentially punishing me for being nice to her by making Clint miserable?

    Theres no reason he can't still ask her out.

    Yes and no. There's no real resolution.
    You can get an event where you prod him to ask Emily to attend an event with him. It's not explicitly labeled a date and I don't think you find out how it went. This only occurs if you haven't seen Emily's 8 heart event.
