Parakasure went into early access on Steam in September 2018 (I wrote about my first impressions soon after). Thankfully, the game’s developers are still here and they are active and slowly, but steadily improving the game! Ever since Folk Tale, I have been more cautious when investing in early access games, though. Folk Tale’s developer used to stream regularly and work on the game actively and everything seemed to be going well until they suddenly disappeared. This is a risk you always have to consider when investing into an early access game. Even really active developers who put everything they have into the game can be forced to cancel development due to a lack of funds to finish their project. So that’s why I’m starting with such a negative comment before writing about Parkasaurus. The point to take away from here is: If you enjoy the game now, as it is, then all’s fine and good because you get your money’s worth. But if you think that the game … [Read more...] about Parkasaurus Early Access: Where is the game now?

I wanted to get a post about Sims 4 Seasons done before this, but ended up completely distracted by computer issues. Thankfully, I’ve gotten those squared away, and the PC is running great again. I still haven’t sat down with Sims again after being so rudely pulled away… but I think the few days I spent with it is enough to spin up a reaction post. Namely… this expansion changes just about every aspect of the game in such a way that it completely enhances the experience for me. There’s just so much going on here, I know I will never remember all of it to write about. Weather and Seasons Of course, Seasons brings seasons… which means changes in weather patterns. But, just like in real life, weather doesn’t always make sense. I saw snow in the middle of spring, for example, which can actually happen IRL. It was a cool little touch (no pun intended). There’s also changes in temperature that effect your Sims (and can even kill them). This is … [Read more...] about Sims 4 Seasons Fun
The newest expansion for Sims 4 — Seasons, is gearing up to drop at midnight EST on this Friday. I’m trying to temper my feelings for the pack, but I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t pretty excited by what I’ve seen. In fact, I decided to officially take a vacation day so I could immerse myself in all the expansion has to offer. I’ve learned in the past that Sims expansions require at least a full day of my time for me to feel like I’ve got a grasp on what all they have to offer. Since this releases on a Friday, that lines me up for a long weekend (of Sims). Traditionally, Seasons has been one of the most popular and requested of the Sims expansions, right up there with Pets. With this version of Seasons, we’re not just getting weather, but a focus on an in-game calendar and holidays. In the past, Seasons had holidays, but they were usually something quickly done with. This time around, you can make a calendar, create your own holidays … [Read more...] about Looking Forward to the Sims 4 Seasons Expansion
I promised in my last post about Sims 4 that I’d spend a little more time with the new Jungle Adventure game pack, especially exploring a temple. I also said that I’d go back and find the name of the random Sim I chose to inflict this upon adventure with. Turns out, his name is Javier. He’d visited the jungle once already, but ran out of vacation time (still a rookie at work, hasn’t built up much time off), so I had to send him home before he got a proper look at the temple. I learned when I brought him back a second time that all the areas you explored before are once again overgrown… so you have to cut your way back through all the vines to re-activate the gates. This wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for those darn random chance events you get opening each gate. These things are trouble… and dangerous. They really do expect you to have a Sim with fairly high skills in order to participate without penalty. Twice, poor Javier was … [Read more...] about Sims 4: Jungle Adventure – Into the Temple
