. . but fuck, the first day of 3-star restaurant has sucked all my energy away. Jesus Christ, that was brutal. It was all day non-fucking-stop.

Just throw your hands up in defeat and serve only corn dogs. Seriously though, I just got to the two-star restaurant, and I've had both fun and my fill.

What changes when you get to three stars? I'm like 12 days into 2 stars and I've almost upgraded all the foods I use.

Looks worth a try at least, hope every one on Steam has green-lighted it. And yeah, BUSY food service is a marathon run in real life too.

@ajamafalous: the first days of getting a new star you always get a bump in buzz. So I was in the first day, with 7 active slots and 90% buzz (almost reaching 100% at some points) and it was ON all the time. And I had highly upgraded pizza, soup and wine in my menu. It was rough.

Apart from the new look to the restaurant (thank god. those ducks/geese/whatever were awful), you also get in a cooking tv show, which is basically a higher difficulty catering challenge.

Tried out the demo and I had a difficult time trying to manage. Even on the first day I had over 50 people and I thought I'd give soup a go. Not a good idea. The problem with soup though is that the buttons don't match with any of the ingredients yet I've found for most over things they do so it really throws you off. The wine is also a bit of a kicker because you have to tap up rapidly. That said, I did enjoy my time with it and I did vote for the greenlight.

The 'doesn't match the letter of the ingredient' thing is only a problem for the first few days of a new food; after that you've just memorized whatever key you need.

Oh god, 7 active slots? I figured it'd stop at 6 since that's what the catering challenges were.

@ajamafalous: the iron chef challenges that open when you get to 3-star have 9 active slots. Which makes me believe that at some point you will also have 9 slots on your restaurant. Just thinking about that is making my head hurt.

Same situation for me when I hit 2 stars, first day capped out at 107%. Shit gets crazy but fun with the right foods.

#10 Posted by Winternet (8019 posts) -

2nd day completed now. It was even worse, at points the buzz was on 104%. In the end, 92 meals served with 91 perfects and 1 average. Also 20 out of 20 chores completed. And all my stamina is gone. Guess I'll play day 3 tomorrow or I go and take a long nap.

Yeah, I need to take a break after an in-game day or two. It's fun but I just don't have the stamina.

I bought this game for my missus, as we had been watching a cooking reality tv show together. I thought it would make a nice change of pace instead of her hidden object games. I didnt understand why it didnt click with her until I loaded it myself. This game is HARD, stressful, and takes full concentration in a way that many games wish they could.

Also, now I cant stop playing it

After hitting 3 star I felt the need to vent so I checked here, and what do you know, I'm not alone.

Jesus, between the 7th serving station and all my foods being so upgraded that if I miss a key it actually adds something to the meal, I've been getting 5 averages a day.

Good experience for when that day comes when I have no choice but to look for work in the fast food industry.

I want this game to hit steam already god damn it.

Well I picked it up on the app store cause I thought my macbook could run it but it barely work its hard to hit a good frantic pace at about 5 fps.
