Cities: Skylines gets a spring 2017 window on Xbox One

Cities: Skylines was released in March of 2015 on PC, but an Xbox One port was supposed to follow at some point. So we waited, and waited, and nothing really came of it. But after a small update in January that it still exists, Paradox Inte...

Show, or tell us about your Stardew Valley farm

It took me a while to get into Stardew Valley. When the original PC release came out, I was incredibly busy with review work, and was really grateful that Patrick was able to knock our coverage out of the park with his assessment. Not ...

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...

Ecosystem sim Birthdays the Beginning slips to May 2017

NIS is holding back Birthdays the Beginning for PC and PlayStation 4 until May 9, 2017 in North America and May 12, 2017 in Europe, and while this two-month delay won't affect many of us, I'll take any chance I can get to bring up this game...

Review: Planet Coaster

It feels very weird to me to be reviewing a coaster sim in 2016. I had just always thought that it was a genre left to the past, and I was pretty okay with that. The days of staying over a friend's house and laughing as we made drinks free ...

Planet Coaster has a big free winter update

Winter levels are some of my favorite themed levels in video games. Don't get me wrong, I could go the rest of my life without ever setting foot in snow again, and that'd be a life well lived. But in games? The sights and sounds are whimsi...

Review: Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality

Playing the PC version of Surgeon Simulator, Bossa Studios' gory slapstick operation game, was like being in charge of a mechanized shell of a human whose arm, hand, and individual fingers were each run by tiny mech pilots. The controls wer...

The natural disaster DLC for Cities: Skylines looks cathartic

With the new Natural Disasters expansion for Cities: Skylines, nature can lash out "randomly, or be triggered deliberately by monstrous mayors who have never liked their citizens." Congested traffic got you done? Why, send in the earthquak...

Review: Harvest Moon: Skytree Village

It’s weird to think how competitive the farm sim genre has become. You have Stardew Valley, which may be the best farm sim ever created, Story of Seasons continues to impress, Rune Factory is outstanding, and there's Farming Simu...

Birthdays the Beginning is out in March in the west

I feel like Birthdays the Beginning is not on a lot of people's radars, but it should be. The adorable looking sandbox game from the creator of Harvest Moon looks pretty great, in that you can not only impact the wildlife and the ...

Oh shit, we got a rollercoaster rivalry!

Theme parks are some of the most happy-go-lucky places on earth. But, try to look past the dazzling spectacle of colors and the cotton candy-stained sidewalks. There's some serious competition there and it's coming to a head in one week -- ...
