First off, this game is 100 times better than Animal Crossing. Yes, it's a bit annoying that every 5 seconds in real life is 10 minutes in the game, but you learn to deal. I rented it twice, then decided to buy it ($30 at Gamestop, why not?). I also reserved the New Super Mario Bros. in the process.
My problem now is that I've got to take care of 3 plots of farmland, 6 chickens, 2 ducks, 4 silkworms, 2 goats, 2 sheep and an ostrich. It's sad to say this about a videogame, but it's overwhelming. I'm hoping to get married and make my wife take on some of the responsibility. Then we'll have a kid and I can pass even more chores off onto him or her.
