Lawn Mowing Simulator? Can You Make Real Life Chores, Fun?

When I think about realistic simulation titles, it's usually some type of job. Very few people actually just farm because they like to do - most people are doing it as a job. But anyone of us that owns a home at some point will be pushing or driving a lawnmower around our back yard to cut the lawn, and while some may enjoy it, others hate it.

It might be one location, but when Nintendo released the New Donk City course update for Mario Golf: Super Rush, I for one was shocked to get 36 unique holes of golf, 18 via an Amateur Course and 18 via a Pro Course. While the Amateur Course is a good place for fans to attempt numerous Holes-in-One, the Pro Course will test players in new ways that previous courses have not.

Affordability Meets Quality with the Lucid Audio LS10X and LS10P

Lucid Audio products have always been some of the better products on the market, and like many headset manufacturers in 2021, they realize that gamers are looking for affordability and quality in one package. So many attempt at creating this balance and releasing a solid product into the marketplace, but so few achieve what they actually set out to do (or purposefully don't). Not with Lucid.
