I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay.
Stardew Valley was clearly the game of the year 2016 for me. I didn’t manage to finish the review on time, but now that the multiplayer beta is live, I think it’s finally time to write down my thoughts about the singleplayer mode.
This indie gem has done so many things so well, it doesn’t really matter that it basically just combines things from the earlier famous titles of the genre.

Hero of the Kingdom is a very lite RPGish adventure. A farmer’s son goes after his father and gathers some skills and fame on the road. The game is simple but charming, and surprisingly addictive. It’s no surprise if one decides to finish it in one sitting. Continue reading
It actually happened: I got the full version of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and went back to Eorzea. Unfortunately I couldn’t play day and night but I did get a bit further on the main plot, and had some fun. My smoking hot cat boy got past lvl40, acquired a chocobo friend and a shiny unicorn mount, ran some dungeons and hung around in a hot bath. Continue reading
