    Medium Rare is couch co-op created by FlareWolf Games, a Canadian indie developer. Although their recent Kickstarter campaign was unsuccessful, they are very far along in development and will be able to release the game on Nintendo Switch by winter of 2019. Afterward, they intend to release the game on PC, with other major console platforms to follow. Since dragons are HOT right now, we at myPotatoGames recommend trying out their demo on PC here.

    About Medium Rare

    Two to four players chase each other around an arena aiming to set fire to each other. Then, once you’re cooked, you change into a tasty chicken (errr… dragon) leg! The winner is the dragon who scores the most points by eating as many chicken legs as possible! Furthermore, each round will take you only a couple of minutes, so the action is fast, easy to learn, and there are ample opportunities for both new players and experienced pros to have fun!

    Game Modes

    • Deathmatch mode (pick up and play with your casual and skilled gamer friends)
    • Gauntlet mode (more challenging mode where you compete against your friends through an escalating gauntlet of map hazards!)
    • Challenge mode… complete puzzle levels on your own or with a friend to unlock more characters!
    • Speed mode… race together or on your own through deadly gauntlets relying on your wits, reflexes and fireballs to survive!
    • Hoard mode… you alone or together with a friend blast fireballs at… well… skeletons and zombies, of course!

    The Dragons

    Vlad, Merlin, Rosa, and Mango are four dragon friends! Their playful behavior is typical for young dragons. They love to chase each other, shoot fireballs, and cook each other into chicken legs to eat! (They’re dragons, don’t judge.) At any rate, dragons are highly magical and therefore, after getting cooked, they quickly reappear in the world to rejoin the fun!

    • Rosa: is a headstrong young dragon. You can literally describe her personality as “fiery!” 
    • Merlin: is Rosa’s big brother. He’s a friendly dragon and his very cool personality caused his skin to turn blue!
    • Vlad: is the bad boy of this dragon bunch. For him, it’s fun chasing Rosa and Merlin around and showing the two younger dragons who’s in charge!
    • Mango: is well… Mango. This kooky, carefree dragon joined up with Rosa, Merlin, and Vlad and very little is known about her or where she comes from… but we’re guessing she’s got a pretty interesting story that will be revealed in time.

    If you can’t get enough of dragons right now like us, you can vote for your favorite one in this poll here. Want to play more party games? Mowin’ & Throwin’ will be available on Steam and also the Nintendo Switch next week!

    In light of the series finale of Game of Thrones on the weekend, whether you were a fan of Season 8 or not, we’d like to take a moment to commemorate the show with all of its political intrigue, the death of our favorite characters, and cool battle scences. Most of all, we at myPotatoGames will be missing a show with dragons.

    Therefore, even though our watch has ended, we have compiled a list of dragons from video games for you to enjoy and to let us know which one is your favorite.

    Missed our last poll? It’s no longer Mother’s Day but you can still vote to let us know which video game mom is the most relatable here.

    This article is a review of the Nintendo Switch version of Little Dragons Cafe.

    Little Dragons Cafe is a game that was made by the creator of Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, and Little King’s Story. With that in mind, before the game even came out there were high expectations for it. It was released on Nintendo Switch back in August of 2018. This game has a delightful story and brings a refreshing spin on the usual game formula.

    Story

    Little did I know when I started to play Little Dragons Cafe that I’d become so invested in the story line and characters. A small family of a mom, brother, and sister run a cafe together. One day, mom gets sick and you find out that she’s half dragon. An old man appears and tells the brother and sister that if they run the cafe together and raise this baby dragon well, their mom will be cured. Along this journey, they meet some interesting characters which you’ll quickly find yourself wanting to hear all about. The strongest part of this game is the wonderful story it tells you with almost every brand new in-game day. Some times I would sleep through a day just to get to the next part of the story!

    Different foods given to your dragon will change its color. My dragon, Vincent, is purple!

    Gameplay

    The gameplay has three different modes in a way. One is where you’re running your cafe, another is a cooking mini-game, and then the third one is exploring and gathering ingredients. Rinse and repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

    One of the interesting customer’s you’ll meet at your cafe.

    Running your cafe was my personal favorite part of the game. Your cafe becomes most busy during lunch and dinner where you can help out by taking orders, delivering meals, and cleaning dishes. Even though this was a very small part of the game, I enjoyed it and enjoyed the role playing aspect of this part. Running your own cafe is such a lovely thought. The only downside to this part of the game play was that it ultimately didn’t matter. If you let your employees slack and leave your customers disappointed, there was no negative effects. There was really no reason to go back to your cafe and help run it. I feel like they could’ve integrated this quite a bit more to make it have more meaning.

    Picking and choosing your recipes for the menu is a nice customization option.

    The next part of gameplay is the cooking mini-game. In order to make any sort of recipe in-game you need to cook it by doing this. This mini-game is just a quick few seconds of following a rhythm and hitting the keys at the proper time. Nothing new but always fun to do.

    Getting all “Excellent” in the cooking mini game can be quite the challenge!

    The third part of the gameplay is 90% of the game and I felt the most lacking and repetitive. Gathering ingredients. For this part of the game, you run around the world shaking bushes, shaking trees, fishing, slaying some animals, collecting chickens, and so forth. This got repetitive within the first couple of in-game days. However, this is the most crucial part of the game and you MUST gather ingredients. There are some features in the game to make this part easier but overall, they didn’t help fix the repetitiveness of this.

    Sound & Music

    There is some great music in the game that I enjoy listening to but the sounds got annoying fast. The dragon sounds absolutely adorable the first couple of times he squeaks at you. However, a lot of these noises are used so many times within the game that they go from cute to annoying. I was constantly trying to avoid my dragon so I wouldn’t hear him squeaking at me. I also ended up muting my game when I was going around exploring and whistling for my dragon to come help me.

    On the other side of the noises becoming annoying after a while, the music is absolutely wonderful. It was such a pleasant experience to be sitting in-game watching a beautiful sunset while listening to the serene music play.

    Enjoying the music and ambiance of the game with my pet dragon.

    Final Thoughts

    Besides the fact that this game can get very repetitive, very fast, this game has some very promising features to it. It was a refreshing style of game with very different graphics than is commonly seen. The music is beautiful and who can say that the baby dragon isn’t crazy adorable?

    Little Dragons Cafe is available on PC, Nintendo Switch, and PS4. For more games similar to this one, stay tuned to myPotatoGames! Happy Gaming!
