Tab’s back! They talk about where they’ve been, some recent big life news, and what’s next for them. We talk about a few news blurbs, then get into what we’ve been playing (including Phasmophobia and Mario Golf Super Rush) before moving on to a discussion of simulation games. How do we define simulation games? Why are both Stardew Valley and Farming Simulation 21 considered “farming sims” when they’re so drastically different? We touch on questions like these along with some recent sim games we’ve been playing (Civilation VI and PowerWash Simulator) and some of our favorites in the genre.
