The 8 most peaceful gardens in games

Put the 9mm down, for crying out loud. Not every game is about shooting your enemies in the shin bones. Honestly. Give me that, here, take this trowel. Now, follow me, through this tranquil landscape of blooming daffodils and perfectly arranged stone paths covered in happy moss. Yes, that’s it, you want a turn around the garden. A bit of soil on your fingers. And…

This cute Stardew Valley mod adds Valentine letters from villagers

I've got over 200 hours in just regular, fresh out of the box Stardew Valley. I could probably keep on for another 200 without ever modding the game, but I've had my eye out lately for mods that would spruce up my I-don't-remember-how-manyth farm. Be My Valentine by Taskmaster on Nexus Mods is a small one, but just in time for actual Valentine's Day which…

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…

Stardew Valley’s massive free update 1.4 finally arrives in 2 weeks

Stardew Valley is about to reap a bountiful harvest. It's been a long dry spell for farmers across the valley, but creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone's massive update 1.4 is just about ready for market. From fishponds to finance everything in between, nary a grain of corn will be overlooked when Stardew's big free update lands on November 26th.

Game DNA: Making yourself a home

I was homeless when I discovered Minecraft -- not homeless in the street-sleeping sense, thankfully. Only in the sofa-surfing sense. I had a bed, even. The creaking cabin bed of two friends who took pity on me and let me crash for a few months in their house, while I sullied my fingertips with sambuca in a dank Yorkshire nightclub for part-time pound coins. My…

Forget fishponds: Stardew Valley’s next update has “everything”

Well, perhaps take that with a pinch of salt. Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone's upcoming work on the charming farming lifestyle sim won't contain the sum of all things. But that's what the Stardew Valley developer has begun calling the 1.4 update, and he's not exactly wrong. From fishponds to marriage, and dozens of vital little quality of life tweaks in between, very little is going to…

Steam Remote Play now has default finger layouts for its most played games

Valve's Steam Remote Play app is one of those little cul-de-sacs that Steam has that is generally very useful, but if you didn't know about it you probably wouldn't have bothered to seek it out. It lets you stream your games from your PC to weaker hardware, like a tablet or a phone, almost certainly while on the toilet. On a phone, something like this…

Feature: The best gift I ever bought

Have you played… Stardew Valley?

My partner doesn't play that many games. She's probably got more hours logged into Bubble Shooter than I've put into Rocket League, but besides that, nada. So the opportunities to tempt her into watching a YouTube Let's Play with me back when we first starting living together at university were quite few and far between. But one of the very few successes was when I…

Stardew Valley introducing fish ponds in next update

As Stardew Valley continues to potter through the farmyard garden of development, picking and planting new bits and pieces, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has revealed another feature coming in the next update: fish ponds. I would very much like a pond by my farmhouse, thank you. I think they're meant to be commercial fish ponds for us to farm and process our aquatic friends, selling…

This Stardew Valley mod is all about cross-species friendship

In the depths of my heart can be found a place barely accessible to anything, cold and barren. But like a Russian Sleeper agent or Denzel Washington in The Manchurian Candidate, this heart can become triggered into action instantly by the incantation of a single phrase. My heart, a wasteland of memories about dogs and good sandwiches once had, will thump with the euphoric power…

Some unlikely games are becoming competitive through Twitch Rivals

I would love to be a fly on the wall for the planning meetings at Twitch Rivals. The livestreaming platform’s esports series keeps pushing the envelope into all sorts of weird and wonderful games and rulesets. Streamers have recently faced off in the arena modes of both Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering; they hosted two Apex Legends tournaments just one week after its release, and…
