Nintendo Download: Stardew Valley

It's crazy when an indie farming game gets more hype than some major first-party releases, but that's where we're at with Stardew Valley launching on the Switch. No, the multiplayer update isn't coming until 2018, but at least it's here. Ot...

Adept vs Amateur: Octopath Traveler Impressions

Bravely Default was one of my favorite games on the 3DS. This spiritual successor to the lesser known Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light delivered in spades with its mix of classic and new. A tale of crystals and unspeakable evil, with a ...
