Last year, the game studio Bethesda released the remastered edition of their popular Open-world Game “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”, which many fans welcomed even though more than a few jokingly pointed out that there were Mods that greatly improved the game graphics better than a remastering could.

Now, during this year’s E3, and as part of their support of their VR System, Sony announced Skyrim VR. Classic skyrim, but being able to play it with a VR set.

While the reception of the trailer was extremely positive, what took the most out of everyone, either on excitement or negativity, was the notion that Link looked oddly feminine.

Released in February 26 of 2016 on Steam, Stardew Valley is an RPG Farming Simulation game (in the same vibe as the Harvest Moon games for the Nintendo handheld consoles) for PC developed by ConcernedApe and published by Game Studio Chucklefish of Starbound fame.
In the game you control your farmer character (which you can customize and name to your liking) who starts living in the abandoned farm of their late grandfather once they, as the game puts it, get sick of living in the city and seek the peace and quiet of Pelican Town, a once thriving community which has fallen into decline since the Joja Corporation recently opened a new JojaMart location in the area. However, as you begin to restore your late Grandfather’s farm to it’s former glory, you may as well help the town to heal as well.
