If you ever thought that Stardew Valley needed more corpses, Graveyard Keeper is the highly specific game for you. Managing a graveyard, performing autopsies, and keeping the Church happy is a humble and rewarding existence. It’s also hard work; after my first day playing Graveyard Keeper, I was legitimately exhausted.
It might've taken a few extra months in the oven, but Stardew Valley's multiplayer update has a definitive release date -- August 1. Which, if you have a calendar handy, is less than two weeks away.
Every day after E3, I loaded up my run of Stardew Valley on Switch. I optimised my crop layouts, looked up which plants were most profitable, and grinded in the dungeon until I could upgrade all my farming tools twice over. It was probably the most stressful way to play the game, but it was the only way I could think to relax after each gruelling day in the video game mines.
After a friend's boozy Dungeons and Dragons brunch last week, his apartment transitioned straight into a party. Although we ordered pizza and had plenty of carbs, we had begun drinking at 11AM, and I continued to drink until the early hours of the morning. Suffice it to say, the next day was a struggle. In my weakened state, I picked up the perfect hangover game: Stardew Valley.
If there's one thing I've learned as a seasoned consumer of all things horror, it's that situations are rarely as innocent as they seem. Dolls will spring to life and kill you. That big, beautiful house you got for a steal is haunted.
You know how it goes.

Fresh on the heels of taking the Switch's top download for 2017, Stardew Valley's fabled 1.3 multiplayer update is close to finished. According to developer ConcernedApe, the patch's new features are done, with translations and QA testing on the horizon.
Stardew Valley has finally arrived on the Switch and instead of exchanging the best farming tips or fishing techniques, we ask the real question on all of our minds: Who is the the game's best romantic interest? I sat down with Seung Park and Gita Jackson to let them debate who they think is the best choice.
