Reunion in Mineral Town

Happy Monday everyone! If you follow us on Twitter or Tumblr, fairly recently, I made little posts just celebrating my excitement at the fact that there will be remakes of a couple of my favorite games from the Harvest Moon series.

Friday Favorites: N64 Games I Wish I Played

Friday Favorites: Beaches in Games

Happy Friday! Being June, it’s supposed to be warmer, the perfect weather for a day at the beach. Considering where I am is kind of lackluster at the moment, with the weather ranging from the fifties to the eighties in Fahrenheit┬ádegrees rather than being consistent “summer” temperature, I’m going to visit some in-game beaches and […]
