Stardew Valley Vibe Check: Judging the romance options

Thanks to some very convincing friends, I am currently obsessed with Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is an American farming simulator influenced heavily by Harvest Moon, a popular Japanese farming sim that I grew up playing.

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Seth Stoddard

This is the last-ever High School Dreams post. Ever. EVER. Seth Stoddard Stereotype: Emo kid I decided early on in this playthrough that Seth was going to be my favorite. The heart of my 12-year-old self (circa 2005) beat wildly at Seth's wardrobe, demeanor, and poetic ambitions. I never got the Gerard Way obsession; I get the Seth Stoddard one.… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Seth Stoddard

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Benny B

This week's been a bit rough - I'm finishing up a senior thesis, recently presented at an undergraduate symposium, and have emigrated for the weekend for my brother's wedding. The rehearsal dinner just wrapped up and I have about 17 hours of free time until the big day, so I thought I'd take a break from… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Benny B

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Chuck Majors

Oh boy. I get the appeal of dating a popular guy. A popular athlete...not so much. Sports are far from my favorite thing. That's not strong enough: I hate sports. When someone brings up basketball, all I have to contribute is, "I'm a fair-weather Gonzaga fan!" I have a hard time relating to people who… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Chuck Majors

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Eugene Moss

It's May, and I'm still surprised that prom season is upon us. My high school prom was a week before graduation in June. So I'm always a little weirded out when cousins/friends' kids/acquaintances start posting their prom pictures on April 1st. All that to say, thanks to High School Dreams, I'm pretty prommed out, and I… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Eugene Moss

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Petey Jacobs

I realized in my last post that while I raged about what a douche Landon was, I didn't go into enough detail about the story and gameplay. I'll try to remedy that with this next post. Fun fact: In High School Dreams, if you don't buy a prom dress by the date of the prom,… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Petey Jacobs

HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Landon

I'm a connoisseur of terrible computer games targeted at girls. I've played a LOT - most of the early Barbie games, various pet simulations, an awful dating sim that will remain nameless. When I saw a trailer for "High School Dreams" while watching Let's Plays on Youtube, you better believe I bought that business for… Continue reading HIGH SCHOOL DREAMS: Landon
