If you have the privilege of playing The Escapists from Team 17 and Mouldy Toof on Xbox or PC then you know how much fun it is. If you haven't, but do own a PS4, good times are ahead.

A-Train City Simulators brings back memories

While graphically I would take the PC graphics of Transportation Tycoon Deluxe, A-Train City Simulator provides an equally satisfying experience, and it is available on 3DS which means it is portable. I've only played for a few hours, and am still trying to make my way through the tutorial, but I've enjoyed what I have played so far.

Yarn Yoshi amiibo Priced higher in UK

Yarn Yoshi amiibo have gone up for preorder at retailers across the UK, and amiibo hunters may - or may not - be surprised at another price increase. At what point is price too high? For these particular figures, I'm not sure there is a price that is "too much."

Story of Seasons Diary: Year 1 Summer 1

Story of Seasons gets better and better. A lot of great things happened in Summer Year 1 which just added to my excitement for this game. I had new crops to plant, new routines to follow, and new traders available. Summer Year 1 was very successful for myself, and my farm did really well.

Family and Gaming: The Ideal PS4 Headset

Playing games while your kids are sleeping is a delicate balance between having your game audio on and still being able to hear your children who may be sleeping way across the house. One thing I've realized is that you CANNOT do it wearing an over-the-ear headset; you can't hear if a child wakes up, cries, or even has coughing fits. There really isn't a great alternative on the PS4 (or the Xbox One / Wii U for that matter) that will give you chat functionality and game audio without drowning out the needs of your kids.

Nintendo Titles you Don’t Want to Miss

We have had a wonderful relationship with Nintendo for well over a year now. They are great at answering questions, inviting us to events, and providing us with copies of games for review. Certain games are either free-to-play, meaning we don't need to wait for a review copy, or Nintendo simply doesn't have copies available for certain things.

Story of Seasons Diary: Year 1 Spring 1.2 – Life off the Farm

Life off the farm is almost as important as life on the farm. Although I assume I'll do this less when I have tons of crops to deal with, I made sure to make daily dives in the three swimming areas currently available to me. Although I don't have a fishing pole yet, I cannot see Story of Seasons keeping me from my favorite past time; at least not for too long.

Story of Seasons Diary: Year 1 Spring 1.1 – Intro and Life on the Farm

It is always hard to review lengthy games like the Harvest Moon franchise. By design, the pace is generally slow, everything is done on your own time, and unlike a sprawling AAA title, they are often directionless. So, I have instead decided to run a series of diary entries while I play Story of Seasons, chronicling each season I play.
