I just wanted to tell you that your guide you posted for HMSI is incredible. I didn't have much luck finding any real data anywhere else for it on the internet, and what I found was not nearly as complete or thorough.
My girlfriend mentioned the Harvest Moon series and I picked SI up just for a change of pace. I was concerned that, upon first playing the game for a day, that it was too shallow and simple for me to enjoy (I usually only enjoy extremely deep, complex, and long running games). After browsing your gargantuan guide I can see I will enjoy this game for some time to come.
So thank you. Thank you for making me realize the depth of this game (oh the cooking! Im a cooking addict in nearly any game), and thank you for your diligent and hard work on the guide.
I hope my modest praise reaches you well, and that others have responded similarly!
