Then you hit the same wall a lot of long-running JRPGs did when they crossed the polygonal barrier. Since the
Lazy Bear Games released Graveyard Keeper in August of 2018. Described by them as “the most inaccurate medieval cemetery sim of the year,” you must build and manage a graveyard from the middle ages while “facing ethical dilemmas and making questionable decisions.” Gather resources, craft items, make business alliances, and
If you think you’ve seen everything from Arcade1Up, you haven’t. They seemed to have covered all their bases with classic stuff like Pac-Man, 90s fighters like The Simpsons, Killer Instinct and Street Fighter, sports games like NBA Jam, and even racing cabinets like OutRun. If you’re asking what’s left, you
Two weeks ago Nintendo announced an expansion to their Switch Online plan that added N64 and Genesis games to the library. it had been anticipated for a while, but most people assumed the price increase would be negligible, or even free. When it was revealed to be a heavy $50
