YvoCaro Plays: an abundance of sim games

Time to sit down for another YvoCaro Plays. As always, these blurbs are mostly about the video games I’m currently playing. Unedited thoughts that spring up in my mind, mostly game related. And sometimes a random train of thoughts starting with the game and ending somewhere completely different. If you like these bits of gaming thoughts you can find the previous ones here

Seriously short on Gaming Time

You know how I always wish for more good simulation games on the Switch? Slowly but surely I’m getting my wish. More and more games flock to the system, and I suspect that we haven’t seen the last of it yet. Not with the Switch Lite coming, which will reach even more people.

Meanwhile, all these great new sim games are demanding my attention. And I’m seriously short on gaming time, which is quite frustrating I can tell you. I hadn’t even had enough of My Time at Portia or from Atelier Nelke when Graveyard Keeper took over big time. And now when I’m very keen on trying to make more Zombies, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is here.

What riches! But what a challenge to play them all! For now I will just do what I always do: go where the gaming mood takes me. And at the moment that means I will dive into DQB2…while trying to do a bit of Graveyard Keeper on the side.

Graveyard Keeper is annoying when it comes to chests

I’ve written about it before: I love organizing items in chests, boxes or wardrobes. At least, in games. I’ve written about it before, even if I don’t  feel in the mood for serious gameplay,  I find it fun to organize my items. Maybe it’s a matter of feeling rich in the game. Or maybe it looks good in the chests. I don’t know, must be a malfunction in my brain (read about my thoughts on that topic here)

Graveyard Keeper has chests too. As many as you can make. The thing is, that the game made the chest logistics awful. Each area has its own chests, and working on the machines, or in the garden, or in the church cellar, you can only access the chest in that area.

This means that every time you realize that you need planks when you are in the church cellar, you have to return to the cottage first. Or if you need nails to build a blueprint at the quarry, you need to return to the farm first and try to remember all the stuff you need to build the blueprint. Not ideal, as the game already is challenging in terms of getting everything done!

We love to hear from you!
