Farm simulators are everywhere it seems, since the days of Harvest Moon, and those chibi farmers, or maybe even as far back as Maxis’ SimFarm. Here we are with another one, FarmCraft, and we play as Ginger, a redheaded young lady with a talent for tilling the soil and making things grow. There is lots of running around, planting, keeping the soil fresh with fertilizers and watering. You get new demands for different crops with each level and also take on raising some livestock. This is a fun little game that keeps your eyes darting around the screen as you click on the places Ginger needs to go, from plot to plot, to supplies, to the animals and so on. Time management games like FarmCraft are pretty addictive, so clear an afternoon as you clear some newground to plant your tomatoes, eggplants, and pumpkins. make sure to keep your livestock fed well so they can produce chubby little piglets and calves, too.

I decided I would take the time to try Sims 3 Late Night without any modifications, just run it the way it comes when you install it with all of its patches and updates. I am going to let you all know just how it goes but I do have this to say: The new selection of hair that EA has offered us this time around are the absolute worst selection of hairstyles that I think they have ever made. I have NEVER seen some of these style in real life EVER. They are ugly, unkempt, totally impractical and just unflattering to look at. I have seen better hair on zombies in a horror film.

Join General Victorius out in the wilds of the Roman Empire as you take on Caesar’s ambitious construction project, build all the roads that will lead to Rome! Little does the general know that this project is also Caesar’s way of keeping him away from Julia, the general’s true love who just also happens to be Caesar’s daughter. Go from the lush hills of Tuscany into the frozen north, and into geologically unstable areas as you take your crew all over the empire to build the original information highway.
Your little crew takes on new challenges and gets new projects with every new level, runs into scary predators like hungry wolves and polar bears, clears away rockslides, mines for gold, and builds support projects, like farms, forts, and quarries. The barbarian wilds are a fearful place for a simple Roman construction worker, but these little guys will make their quota with your help. Hurry up, and bring the general home so he can be with his Julia again. Along the way, you will be treated to other kinds of puzzle games, like Collapse, just to name one. Roads of Rome takes Time Management games into a new direction, and still leaves you wanting more. Read more...(228 words, 31 images, estimated 55 secs reading time)
Death at Fairing Point: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector’s Edition is a great hidden object mystery game, and I know that you can find these kinds of games all over the place, but I really liked this one. The setting is very picturesque, and the story about the ghosts that Dana are chasing is really amazing. The search is on as you follow David Robertson’s ghost around a manor in Scotland to find out about his murder back in the early 1800s, and learn how it was connected to a sultry young woman known only as “Charlotte”.
You are truly seeing everything from Dana’s POV as you solve puzzles and learn new things about the people who lived at the manor back in David’s time. Dana finds clues not only at the house, but in the local gardens and pub. There were some hidden object puzzles, but the logic puzzles blend so well into the game, you really feel as if you are becoming closer to the ghost and unravelling his mystery. Fans of romantic suspense, ghost stories, and murder mysteries will really like Death at Fairing Point. Read more...(223 words, 31 images, estimated 54 secs reading time)
Shogun Total War Warlord Edition is one hell of a game. Even though it is 10 years old it is still a classic and worth playing. As old as it is it will even play on Windows 7 with very few problems at all. So if you have a need or wish to conquer Japan then this is the game for you.
With Shogun Total War 2 coming out in March 2011 you might want to pick this gem up while you are waiting for it to come out. Now I will warn you, this game is not that crisp in the graphics department that you have grown accustom to but it still looks better then some of the free MMO games that have been coming out lately. The only place where you even see the graphics not being what you might be used to is when you are controlling your battles as there is not anti aliasing on the units but you wont even mind that at all.
