After a friend’s boozy Dungeons and Dragons brunch last week, his apartment transitioned straight into a party. Although we ordered pizza and had plenty of carbs, we had begun drinking at 11am, and I continued to drink until the early hours of the morning. Suffice it to say, the next day was a struggle. In my weakened…
Tim is a farmer in Northern California who spends a lot of time on tractors. Thanks to auto-steering, that means he also has plenty of time to check in on his other farm, the one on his Switch port of Stardew Valley.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a seasoned consumer of all things horror, it’s that situations are rarely as innocent as they seem. Dolls will spring to life and kill you. That big, beautiful house you got for a steal is haunted. You know how it goes. I let my guard down with Stardew Valley. “A gentle farming…
Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is busy travelling the world promoting the flick, which means an endless stream of red carpet interviews. Like this one, where Maude Garrett asks him what he’s into right now, and he gets talking about the Nintendo Switch he just bought.
Sony’s handheld isn’t dead (yet). A bunch of new announcements timed around this year’s PlayStation Experience event have given it a temporary shot in the arm.
One of Steam’s biggest hits of 2016 is now available on consoles, and you can score a copy of Stardew Valley for an all-time low $15 right now on PS4 and Xbox One, down from a launch price of $30.
Stardew Valley has finally arrived on the Switch and instead of exchanging the best farming tips or fishing techniques, we ask the real question on all of our minds: Who is the the game’s best romantic interest? I sat down with Seung Park and Gita Jackson to let them debate who they think is the best choice. (spoiler…
We’re playing the Switch port of Stardew Valley right now on Twitch. Time to harvest blueberries and romance the artist who lives by the lake.
I was trimming the weeds on my overgrown Stardew Valley farm when I heard a mumbled “Canal Street” over the subway intercom. Shit, I thought, looking up from my seat on the J train. I should have gotten off two stops ago.
If you want to maximize your productivity in Stardew Valley, you’re going to have to read some tips on the Internet. Though maybe... don’t?
Video games are very good at teaching, even if they have to repeat the lesson over and over. Sometimes the lesson is “don’t fall into that bottomless pit.” Other times it’s “she’s just not that into you.”
Living off the land ain’t easy. There’s a lot about Stardew Valley that the game doesn’t really explain, which makes jumping in a bit daunting.
Stardew Valley is an amazing game, and the Switch port has perfected the few small issues I had with it. Goodbye social life.
Stardew Valley is coming to Switch on October 5, developer Eric Barone said today. It’ll be $15 and give you a healthy dose of farming on the go. Next up, Animal Crossing?
When I first got Stardew Valley last December, I spent days playing it. To date, I have 70 hours on record. I swapped study time with hours of slashing monsters, caring for crops and livestock, and doting on my husband, Harvey. But lately, I’ve been bored with Stardew Valley.
When I last check on my slime farm, the rock slimes had mated with my tabby cat slimes to make giant rock cats. The rock cats got so hungry they transformed into tar monsters and devoured all my chickens. It’s just another day in Slime Rancher.
You can pretty much speedrun anything: Google doodles, having your video game children taken away, and even (video game) marriage. While many fans deliberate for a good while over what characters to romance in Stardew Valley, for the past year, some players have sped their courtships up through speedruns. Three days…
E3 was full of massive AAA titles like God of War, Assassin’s Creed, and Call of Duty. But the one game that’s stuck in my mind the most is Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. It’s half brawler, half farming sim—it’s a weird combination, but I can’t stop thinking about it.
Steam Spy just released a big 2016 data dump, and it’s certainly revealing.
Ever loved a piece of fiction so much you never wanted it to end? That’s what fandom is for.
