Send in the plows
I've seen snow only once or twice this year, and even then, it didn't stick around for long. Meanwhile, Brett is regaling us with tales about how he's just now venturing out of his snowed-in house for the first time since Sun...
Better off forgotten
I've been religiously playing Harvest Moon games for more than half my life.
The addiction started when my dad bought Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for our PlayStation back in 2002. I remember racing home every day to play it...
Be a lean, mean, money-making machine
There are a lot of dangers out there on the road and a lot of things to keep in mind if you're going to carry cargo across state lines in the United States of America. I mean, they don't force drivers to take CDL tests for nothing!
So, being the helpful guy I am, I've decided to lay out some very important tips and tricks for anyone looking to perform well in American Truck Simulator.
I live in New Jersey, so I think I know a thing or two about California. After all, I've listened to plenty of N.W.A. and Tupac, plus I've seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
Oh, and I've been to California a whole lot to visit my brother and for that one E3 I attended. Does this make me an expert? Yes. Yes it does.
This can only end well
American Truck Simulator is out on Steam next week, and we have Patrick on point for the review. That's all well and good. But lately, he's been coming into our staff chat with what I have decided must be hip trucker lingo, a...
Good for him
Anthony Tan has a lot to be happy about. In addition to gaining lots of media attention for his game Way to the Woods, partially due to his young age (he's 16), Team17 (developer of Worms, publisher of Yooka-Laylee) has...
'Hitman but anime. Hitmanime' - Jonathan
The controversial stalking and murdering game Yandere Simulator has been banned from being streamed on Twitch, joining the likes of BMX XXX, Hatred, and Second Life.
This isn't all that surprising considering YouTub...
Time to jailbreak your console
After a long stint in Early Access, Prison Architect finally saw its full PC release late last year. Wasting little time, developer Double Eleven is now porting it to consoles. It should release in spring on PlayStation 4, Xb...
Cities: Skylines' Snowfal
Cities: Skylines' Snowfall expansion
Paradox and developer Colossal Order are smart to couch bigger Cities: Skylines expansions in visually transformative ways because, much like when the day/night cycle was added in After Dark, damn do these snow-kissed cities...
Not-Harvest Moon 2
Story of Seasons, also known as that one Harvest Moon game that isn't actually Harvest Moon, is getting a sequel in Japan this year. Like the original, Story of Seasons: Good Friends of Three Villages is a 3DS ...
My impressions of the public pre-alpha
After seeing some brief gameplay of Slime Rancher, I instantly thought, "I feel like this is going to be the next big thing and I need to get my hands on it stat."
I'm very excited to tell you that I believe I was right. Afte...
One was fine but toucan be a problem
Everybirdie who’s anybirdie has found some kind of joy in Hatoful Boyfriend -- the strange yet alluring romantic bird simulator that stole the hearts of gamers and avians around the world.
We’re graced this holida...
MERCILESS pug speed dating sim returns
I covered and played the heck out of the MERCILESS pug speed dating sim Hot Date when it was released this summer, but maybe you didn't. So already we're doing good: reminding you of a cool game you could be playing right now...
'Don't let this new world break you'
I've been interested in The Long Dark, and artsy flourish in the open world survival simulator mold, since it launched on Kickstarter two years ago. It has since been released on Early Access, and even got a major update ear...
I'm glad it's back
Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories received its debut trailer and some shiny new screenshots today. Developer Irem previously announced Disaster Report 4 for PS3 back in 2010, but it was delayed and then canceled shortly...
Story of Seasons, the farming simulation formerly known as Harvest Moon, is sprouting in Europe on January 8 and across Australia and New Zealand the following day, Nintendo just announced.
For more on the game please check out our review and recent interview with XSEED's Ken Berry.
Killing Japanese school girls
It's been a bit since we checked in on Yandere Simulator, the Hitman-like stealth game "about stalking a boy and secretly eliminating any girl who seems interested in him, while maintaining the image of an innocent schoo...
The ride never ends
The results are in from the RollerCoaster Tycoon World beta, and Atari has decided to delay the game to early 2016. Previously, it was supposed to be out for PC on December 10.
With this specific beta, Nvizzio wanted to showc...
Beans, beans, the musical fruit
Harmonix sure has diversified in the past five years. Sure, the studio just released Rock Band 4 and it focuses on interacting with music in all of its games, but with stuff like Chroma and A City Sleeps, it has gone further ...
My horse, my horse...
I can remember building sandcastles in San Francisco's wonderfully-named Ocean Beach when I was young, armed with just one bucket with an embattled parapet mold to give the formations that distinct "castle" look, and another ...
In development at Frontier
I'm not sure where I was on June 16, but I wasn't here reading Darren's post about Planet Coaster. In fact, I'm only now learning about the game. It looks like a treat for management sim fans.
While Atari is putting out a new...
What the hell, 1998?
I dislike this art sooo much. It doesn't look like an anime at all. But seriously, at least aim for Heavy Metal, right? This is 1998. Leisure Suit Larry did a better job 10 years earlier on noticeably more restricted tech. He...
The Joy of Localization
The original title of this article was "XSEED named a cow Swag Lady," which is also true.
There are several cows in Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale, a cute and leisurely little RPG, if my brief time with t...
Is this eligible for The Game Awards?
There's a Gabe Newell Simulator on Steam Early Access and it costs seven American dollars. The entirety of that sentence should be enough for you to make a purchasing decision, right?
For what it's worth, I think a Gabe Newel...
Can it be real?
The Sims gets a lot of shit. Sure, it has DLC and expansions coming out of the rafters, but historically, the core games have been pretty decent -- outside of the latest iteration that stripped out a ton of features of ...
More like 'shitty planning'
And here I thought being a public official would get me laid.
It turns out any clout built up by being the sole city planner gets et up when the citizens' homes are filled with sewage because of your incompetence.
Animal Crossing's home design feature was actually the thing that got me hooked on the series in the first place. Back when I was addicted to building houses in The Sims, one of my friends came over for a visit and broug...
Much to my chagrin
So, Frozen. I must be one of the only people on the planet who doesn't like it. I mean, I love Elsa -- it's about time Idina Menzel and her amazing voice got the respect she deserves -- but the rest, including most of th...
Did I mention the cats?
Monster Hunter Diary DX for the Nintendo 3DS is a silly game. That much is evident from watching the series of commercials presented on a nearby TV screen at TGS, which shows a variety of cats in a variety of different k...
Better late than never
Story of Seasons, the latest actual "Harvest Moon," is coming to Europe, courtesy of Nintendo.
