Supernatural polyamorous shenanigans – I’m hooked

About: When the Night Comes is an episodic fantasy otome game with supernatural elements.

You are a Hunter, and you’ve been called to the quiet town of Lunaris to assist the local Enforcers with an investigation into a series of increasingly unsettling murders.

Immerse yourself in the world of Witches, Vampires, Demons and Lycan’s as you slowly unravel the mystery that lies deep within the roots of the town.

The question is, are the creatures of the night the ones you should really be afraid of? 

You might even fall in forbidden love along the way.

Anticipated Arrival: Tropico 6

Anticpated arrivals

What is it?!

Tropico 6 y’all!

The latest game in the Tropico series! I loved number 5 but sadly did not obsessively play it as much as Tropico 4.

There isn’t really a blurb for the game but if you really want to break it down – think of Tropico as Sim City but if it was run by a Cuban dictator. It’s a world building simulation set in a banana republic kind of island where you try and juggle the political, economical, and social issues of the island as you try and stay in power throughout the ages.

El Presidente is back!

Features:

Play on large archipelagos for the first time in the series. Manage multiple islands at the same time and adapt to various new challenges.


Send your agents on raids to foreign lands to steal world wonders and monuments, to add them to your collection.


Build bridges, construct tunnels and transport your citizens and tourists in taxis, buses and aerial cable cars. Tropico 6 offers completely new transportation and infrastructure possibilities.


Customize the looks of your palace at will and choose from various extras.
Tropico 6 features a revised research system focusing on the political aspects of being the world’s greatest dictator.


Election speeches are back! Address the people and make promises that you can’t possibly keep.

Stardew Valley

  • Build the farm of your dreams: Turn your overgrown fields into a lively and bountiful farm!

  • Explore vast, mysterious caves: Encounter dangerous monsters & valuable treasures deep underground!

Release Date: 26 February 2016.
Played on: Nintendo Switch.
Genre: Simulation. Role-playing. Farming.
Mode: Single Player and Multiplayer.

My Thoughts: Stardew Valley is a farming simulator with a plot heavy edge. The basic plot of the game is you are left a farm by your grandfather who has just passed away. Your character decides to leave their unhappy corporate life and give farming a go. Already a win for me.

I will come right out and say that Stardew Valley is very similar to the Harvest Moon games. However, the two games differ through their content. Stardew Valley is more mature in the subject matter that is included in the stories (I’m looking at you Shane). Also unlike Harvest Moon I don’t feel like pulling my hair out at the slow pace of the game 😛

Stardew Valley is a pretty much a step up from the Harvest Moon series.

I have a fondness for simulation games and the fact that this one is so filled with plot is amazing! I have previously played Stardew Valley on my PlayStation, however the file corrupted so my amazing farm and newborn baby with Shane has been lost to the ages 😥

With the game being available on the Switch (which I play way more than any other console) I couldn’t help myself and I purchased the game again. No regrets.

Best Bits: So many compelling characters! I think I’ve figured out which character to romance and then I have a cut scene with another character and suddenly I’m questioning everything.

My current play through is as a male character and I am thinking about pursuing Alex. I really enjoy the characters of the game, they’re all really varied and with my second play through I am finding all sorts of things that I missed before. The game has so much content!

I love this game. It has just the right mix of farm simulation and role playing to keep my attention for hours.

Recommendations:  I would really recommend this game for people looking for a fun and engaging simulation game. It is very easy to lose hours to this game as it keeps you hooked with so much content.

Honestly, I’d recommend everyone give this game a go, it’s from an indie developer and is just so fabulous. You don’t need to be a fan of the simulation genre to find enjoyment from this game.

Go on, give this game a go!

Quick Picks: Xmas Presents!

QUICK Picks

Prepare yourself for an incredibly self indulgent post about all the things I want for Xmas!

candy_mountain_yule_log_slice_christmas_2018

Candy Mountain Yule Log

by Lush

Quick  run down: Every year I try and buy a few of these limited release bubble bars. The bars smell amazing and are so easy to use. You simply crumble them under a running tap and bam – you have a bubble bath.

It appears that this year instead of being little pyramids, Lush has made them into a bit more manageable shape. I usually try and grab as many as I can in the online boxing day sales but I never turn them down as a present!

Quick reasons why I love it:

  • The Smell: They are amazing – a soft and sweet vanilla.
  • The Luxury: Bubble baths are a large part of my self care routine and these beauties make them all the more luxurious.

Tropico 6

by Kalypso

Quick run down: I have sunk so many hours into the Tropico games. Tropico 6 is a simulation game where you play as El Presidente, a ‘legally’ elected leader of a Caribbean/Cubanesque island.

Pretty much this is Sims City but on a island with a catchy soundtrack.

Quick reasons why I love it:

  • The Soundtrack: the Latin jazz sounds that play throughout each of the Tropico games.
  • The Humour: the humour of the game is really tongue in check. The reoccurring characters of the game are also really fun.

Lunar Chronicles

The Lunar Chronicles Box-set

by Melissa Meyer

Quick run down: Okay so stay with me on this one, I own Cinder and Winter. However, I do not have the other books. I also love box sets so…

If you don’t know the series, I would really recommend you check out it out! The books are retellings of classic fairy tale and they are all interconnected and amazing. I tend to recommend the series to young adults at the library and I haven’t had any complaints yet.

Quick reasons why I love the series:

  • The larger story: The five books all interconnect to tell a larger story. I’m just going to let you in on a secret, the ‘Winter‘ book is about ‘Snow White’ and the other characters from the book all join together and there are ‘seven’ of them… Yep details like that make me so happy!
  • The covers: I know a lot of people give Cinder a tough time about the cover – what with the whole weird looking foot in a shoe but I love it and I love them all!.

Currently Consuming: The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya

Look at all the pretty boys you can ‘love!’

About: The Men of Yoshiwara: Kukuya is a Japanese romance visual novel that follows the story of a user-named character (in my case Gertrude Issaprúde) as she (hopefully) finds love.

I’m not going to sugar coat it, the main character is offered the chance to spend one night with a courtesan in a brothel. Players are then given the option of which man to select for the night. Each selection offers players a longer story that explores that character in more depth. Depending on how well you answer prompts and how much the character likes you (a points based system determined from the answers you select), you finish with one of two happy endings.

Happy Tabletop Day!

itttd_2018_logo-300x300It’s the 28th of April – which means:

IT’S TABLETOP DAY!

For those of you who don’t know, the internationally celebrated day is a chance for people to come together and celebrate, share, and play tabletop games.

What are tabletop games I hear you ask? Well tabletop games are anything which can be played on a table 😛 This includes board games, card games, role playing games (such as Dungeons and Dragons), dice games, and many more!

If the only tabletop games you can think of are Monopoly and poker, then please do yourself a favour and research some new games. I am saying this, not only because there are some amazing games out there but because Monopoly is the literal worse 😉

Small Snippet of February 2018

Small Snippet feb

Aside from my Small Snippet of 2017, this is my first Small Snippet post that features a month in a little over a year and a half. Lots of things have happened in between and I have experienced a variety of different and interesting entertainments. However, starting off the year, my 2018 February has been a fun one.

Adultolescence-Gabbie-Hanna-free-ebookAdultolescence by Gabbie Hannah.

I will start off by saying that I have no idea who the author of this book is, only that they have a YouTube channel. So with absolutely no background information, I can say that I absolutely adore the poems in this book. They’re funny, modern, and sometimes insightful.
