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 Simulator seemed to manage.

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.

Sphero Mini Impressions

A few weeks ago, my wife was coming off one of her shifts at Best Buy Canada and gave me a quick call on the phone. "You think the kids would like a programmable robot?"
