I have played some farming simulations in the past, and many of them have been slow moving, or have time requirements that are just far too unrealistic. Farm to Fork is none of those things, and is one of the most refreshing farming sims I have come across in a very long time. You start off as four fresh young dudes with a failing farm that just needs a new opportunity to get your goods into a new market. One is considering the situation as he checks out the bags of wheat and the loaf of bread he has been nomming on while is buddies are having a spell of financial depression. The light bulb goes on, and soon the farmhouse is a production area where the freshest ingredients right from the farm become bread, salads, and so much more to bring variety to this little farm.
Although I did enjoy the story breaks in the game about the classic hero Jason and his crew from Argos, I found the game to be mediocre, and pretty much a waste of time. The graphics looked washed out instead of classical, and it was hard to determine what icon was what under the foggy mists.
As you went along in the game, you would get gifts from the Olympians, but you had to find their gold icons in the grids to activate them. Hera’s icon was a peacock, Athena’s was an owl, Zeus’ was a eagle, and so on. Often, hunting for these golden birds would distract from the match 3 subject matter of the game itself, and the gift you would receive sometimes would no be worth the effort you put into getting it.
Shadow of the Colossus is fun game and really hard. This game is one of the best games of 2005 and the best PS2 game of all time. When I was playing this, I had so many problems with the controls, but I got used to it. The controls are more of a pain than in Tomb Raider. I’m talking about the Tomb Raider from 1996, not one came out in 2013.
Shadow of the Colossus is an amazing game. It has good storyline, graphics that you will never think to be seen on the PS2, and really challenging gameplay. This game beats the Legend of Zelda series. The game is about a young man named Wander who wants to bring back his lover back to life. She is in a sleeping curse. So, he must kill these colossi so she can bring back to the land of the living. When I played this game, the story is like Sleeping Beauty meets giant monsters. The graphics looks so damned good!
Star Wars: Republic Commando is one the best Star Wars games. This game runs like Ghost Recon in outer space. In this game, you give orders to troops, Shoot down droids, and kill a bunch of ugly aliens. When you are killing something in close combat, you get blood splatter on your helmet and your helmet has a wind shield wiper. I can see clearly now!.
I had been in this establishment before, when it was the New Star Chinese Buffet. The new management took this place into a completely opposite direction, and Angel’s Buffet is now a purely Southern and Soul Food restaurant. Advertised as having the “Best Chicken Around”, the chicken did not disappoint! The skin was light, crispy, and not at all greasy. Sadly, on the day I came there, the other offerings were not quite as good.
There was a baked chicken with barbeque sauce that was a bit overcooked and hard to manage. There were only about five or six vegetable choices for a weekday lunch. Butter beans, yellow rice, collards, corn and snap beans. There were egg rolls that were very good plain, even though I do prefer them with duck sauce and Chinese mustard. There were baked sweet potatoes, rolls, and fried cornbread, which was pretty light and crispy, like the fried chicken. These guys and gals got making deep fried food down to an art. There was also an assortment of thin slices over various cakes for sweet options, but I did not partake of those. The sweet tea was light tasting, and not too sweet. On some things, they hit the mark, and on others, some improvement was needed. Another thing that was a let down was the fact that there was a wonderful chicken gravy, but no mashed or new potatoes to put them on. I tried it on the yellow rice, but it was just not quite the same.
