Stardew Valley’s Longevity

When it comes to simulation games, how far do you get in the game before inevitably starting over? Business simulators tend to have some sort of goal or endpoint, even if the game is able to be played past that endpoint. Game Dev Tycoon, for example, tallies your score traditionally at the end of 35 […]

What Kind of Escapist Are You?

Happy Monday, everyone! Despite how low-key this past Easter weekend has been compared to previous years, it was still a nice couple of days. We mainly relaxed with our immediate family, had some good food courtesy of Mom baking up a storm, and played video games to escape from the outside world. Aside from the […]

To Be In Control

Happy Monday, everyone! I apologize for no solo posts last week. This whole virus nonsense has been throwing many people — myself included — for a loop, particularly where my day job is concerned. Diving into video games has been my go-to coping method. When Rachel and I decided to do a themed month of […]

Summer Games

So, how’s everyone enjoying Super Mario Maker 2? We honestly forgot to pre-order it and have yet to buy it. We were both looking forward to the game so much, aside from the hiccup regarding online play with friends, that it’s a little surprising how it slipped our minds. Of course, this past month has […]

Time Management

Happy Monday everyone! With the time that this post is going up, I may as well be encroaching¬†on Rachel’s Tuesday posts. I suppose this is fairly fitting with how busy we’ve been a little lately.

Happy Thursday! Kris and I are currently on our way to Canada for EGLX! We’re both excited and I can’t wait to get off this plane… I’m going to a gaming expo, so of course, I’m bringing my 2DS XL. I started playing through Pokemon Ranger for Nintendo DS. It came out in March 2006, […]

Currently Playing: Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon

Happy Thursday! I played and reviewed a lot of games in 2017. Most of them were from the Nintendo Switch, the latest craze in gaming. While I’ll still be playing my share of Switch games, I wanted to look back at some games I haven’t played in a while. Luigi’s Mansion for the Nintendo Gamecube […]

Currently Playing: Sonic Mania & Fire Emblem Warriors

Two¬†“Currently Playing” posts in a row? How about that? I splurged a little in getting a couple of new games for the rest of this month. A little Sonic the Hedgehog and Fire Emblem seemed to be just what was needed! I’ll admit, I nearly forgot about Sonic Mania! The game came out last August, […]

Currently Playing: Dream Daddy

Rachel’s and my Steam account has been getting more of a workout lately, which is awesome. One of the games that’s getting the most love at the moment is a visual novel called Dream Daddy. …Yeah, I know, the name threw me off a bit too when I first heard about it. Dream Daddy is […]
