Saints Row is getting a reboot, coming in Feb 2022

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new Saints Row game. While Saints Row 4 and Gat out of Hell didn’t impress me much, Saints Row the Third is one of my favorite games of all time and I loved being able to go back to it with the recent remasters.

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.

Xbox Game Pass – The Ultimate Demo Service?

I've been using Xbox Game Pass since the day it was announced and offered to Xbox consumers, and for a long time, I almost fell sway to the folks who said, "Yah, but you don't actually own the games." Over the past while, I've been using my Xbox a bit less than I normally would - this is the first time I've owned all three major consoles at once! - but anytime I load it up, I often find myself looking through the Game Pass games to see what's new and what I might want to play.
