Yo-Kai Watch Translation Project: Chapter One

Here we are, checking out the first chapter of Yo-Kai Watch on Nintendo Switch. While there is a translation patch you can put onto your Switch to make all the Japanese, English, it does require you to hack your Nintendo Switch unit which many folks are not willing to do, me included. So with a small team - Gladiator, Alexis, and Kirie - we were able to transcribe all the English from the 3DS version, get it typed up into word, so that I could read it during ...

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. So could a group of developers take a weekly chore and turn it into something fun? The folks behind Lawn Mowing ...

I Have Played Current Kickstarter Project Dustbiters – Is it Worth It?

So after a few days with Dustbiters, a fun quick card game from a wide range of talented individuals, I'm pretty sure I've found one of my favourite little go-to games for playing with my wife and kids. It's quick, easy to learn, and can be picked up at a moments notice and a game finished within 15 minutes. It's the ideal kind of game for the Roffel household. But is it for you?
