FIFA 22 Tutorial is Outstanding

When a tutorial is required, either for new players or because a new concept has been introduce into a game, so often companies use the most boring way to show off the new mechanic, or teach the controls. EA Sports has tried to do away with that type of crap, and instead have created a fantastic short story experience that walks players through the basics of running, passing, shooting and more, all set on the streets of Paris, and in the famous stadium of PSG!

Farming Simulator 22 Supports Cross Play

I still can remember when the Farming Simulator franchise was a single player experience through and through. Fun still, yes of course, but owning a farming empire is always more fun with friends, especially since it allows you to expand at an exponential rate. So many people playing farming simulator solo miss out on so much of what the game has to offer just because of time! Then Farming Simulator got multiplayer, and this year, we are getting crossplay as ...

The AmazingAmerican Circus Deeper Than I Thought

Based on the few trailers I saw for The Amazing American Circus, I thought I was going to be playing a weird card game about a circus. A good card game, mind you, but not one with monsters and fantasy warriors. Nope, just a regular circus troupe. But after getting into the game's story, I realized it was so much more, for better or for worse. What do I think of this title - let's dive in!

Monster Harvest Does Things Good, but not Great

I've been looking forward to playing Monster Harvest for a long time now - a game that moulds the concepts of Pokémon with Stardew Valley / Harvest Moon? Sign me up! And while I've enjoyed my time with the game - as short as it was, surprisingly - I can't help but feel that I came out of the whole experience a tad disappointed in what was offered. Is Monster Harvest Worth it? Let's take a look.

Streets of Rage 4 Anywhere and Everywhere (Google Stadia)

Being able to play games wherever I want is outstanding. Whether on my various TVs around the house - sometimes natively via the TV and other times via my Chromecast with Google TV - on my cell phone, any of my computers...you get the picture. While not a huge fighting game fan, Streets of Rage 4 was something I could dive into for a few moments at a time, anywhere in my house, and I really enjoyed the experience.

iRobot Introduces Roomba(R) j7+ Robot Vacuum with Genius™ 3.0 Home Intelligence

I've always been skeptical of robot vacuums, but in late 2019, iRobot gave me the opportunity to look at the Roomba i7+ which included a robot and a base station for disposal. Even after getting the product, setting it up, and using it a few times, I was still really skeptical that it would fit my families needs. Then we learned the 'proper' use of the system, and began setting up scheduled clean up times. Monday-Wednesday-Friday in the Kitchen and Dinning ...

All In On the Animal Crossing x Puma Lineup (Gallery)

I've always enjoy Puma products, although their shoes are sometimes a bit narrow for my wide feet. Last year, we took a look at the NES shoes from Puma, and really enjoyed the look and feel of those sneakers - still wearing them to this day! When the Animal Crossing x Puma collaboration was announced - featuring a few items, including a long sleeve shirt and sneakers - I knew I had to have them as soon as possible.

Looks like Nate's dad left some valuable paperwork he needs for a meeting on the train station platform, so we need to head to downtown Springdale to make sure he has what he needs to close the client and get the sale! Can we help him in time?
