I'd love to know which farm-life sim people consider their favourite. I've played a fair few of them with my daughter and there are certainly lots to choose from on the Switch – many of which are great fun. Here are some links to other farm related reviews from our channel: –

the bad framerate is a turn off for me. I might pick it up if it goes on sale in the future.

I was trying to decide between downloading Rune Factory 4 Special or Story of Seasons, and your reviews have helped me a ton! Looks like I’ll be playing Rune Factory 4 until Rune Factory 5 comes out later this year 🙂

I’m sure these games are great but I’ve never been a farm-sim fan. Great review vid as always but I won’t be playing this one.

Excellent review Glen. The only farming sims I've played are Stardew Valley and I've also play Stranded Sails. Both I enjoyed not sure I have enough time to add another farming sim game to add to my backlog.

Meh, I think I'll wait for a good sale on this one. I'm pretty entertained by littlewood and miitopia + MH stories is coming out? Yeah I think I'll wait. Not to mention coral island is looking infinitely better.

I can over look frame rate drops and wonky new mechanics if the game is good

was wondering about this game, the performance is a let down. Hopefully Rune factory 5 will be awesome, saving my money for it.

This will be first ever story of seasons game and although it's got some things that needs improving, I'm really excited about relaxing and enjoying this charming game. Really reminds me of My Time At Portia which is the only farming game I've ever played. Can't wait!

I've only played a couple hours this morning I'll play more later but I have seen a lot of people talking about the Performance and it is a bummer, but I will mention that the Devs have stated they are working on it and hopefully that means we get a patch soon!

Thanks so much for this. I was in two minds as to whether I’d like this, or not. I love games like ACNH and My Time at Portia but SoSFoMT didn’t quite grab me.

So Glenn, if you have to choose to buy one now: Mineral Town or Olive Town, which would you pick on the switch? Great review.

So what I heard was, wait 3 months for a huge patch & sale.

Unreliable framerates are starting to really bother me.

The performance is definitely a disappointment- I had assumed this would be very much in line with Mineral Town, just with more added to it. Here’s hoping they patch the frame rate issues.

Excellent review thank you very much for the well educated information. I'm wondering how this game's going to do obviously the loyal fans were going to pick this up without any hesitation. But people that have invested their time in animal crossing I think may stay there. It's just nice to have both games out there I applaud Nintendo. Let the farming and fun begin.

Can my character visit random towns or will it be strictly to the friend list?

I agree with the lack of character portraits, they really do make a difference and it's a shame they're not in the game.

It’s always a great granddad or far removed uncle/aunt/father that gives you your plot of land lol.

How well does this compare to Portia?

Did anyone get a really strange add of a woman on a computer reading a really weird diary entry? It looked like a normal very day middle aged woman and the video quality was low, I’m not sure what the point of it was but it was just…strange 😶

Interested in giving this series a shot. I've played these kinds of farming sims and building games before. Terraria, Animal Crossing, Minecraft, Conan Exiles (even though that last one is that's more of a survival game), etc so I'm quite familiar with them.

For anyone who knows more about this series than me, I was wondering if I should start with this one or some of the older games in the series?

Hopefully they just cap it at 30 FPS. Would be much better and less jarring
