Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim alights on Western PCs

I’ve mentioned before that Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim was my introduction to the Ys series and its perennial protagonist, Adol Christin.

Cities Skylines reminds me that I suck at sim games

How do I city? I mean, seriously. I’ve read plenty of beginner’s guides relating to Cities Skylines, and I still haven’t figured it out. The glory of Cities Skylines is that it tosses you into the deep end immediately. There are a few tutorials that will pop up when you first encounter a new section more »
