    I recently wrote a review for Spirittea, which is a lovely cozy game where you run a bath house for spirits instead of the usual farming that’s taken over the cozy genre. Overall, I enjoyed the game as the characters are fun and unique, the spirits add a sense of levity (especially your guide Wonyan), and the art is pretty. I’m really excited that there’s a new update for it called the” SpecQUACKular Update”! 

    This fun new “SpecQUACKular Update” adds a few fun new things, plus fixes a bunch of bugs! Spirittea now has ducks, which I’m sure you could guess from the name of the update. The ducks can swim around the baths in the bath house, eating the algae that forms. So, not only are they cute, but they’re helpful too! There’s also a new vendor who will roll into town every once in a while carrying new items to sell. Seasonal mechanics are now present in the bath house, too. Depending on the seasons, the baths will fill with algae (hence the ducks), ice over, or fill with fallen leaves. You need to keep the baths clean and employ the new bath heaters! Bruce has new animations, and the fishing pole has a reticle so it’s easier to see where you’ve thrown your line. 

    Bug Fixes

    Fixed error where items could be lost by placing them on shelves and tables

    Fixed issues with items disappearing within inventory

    Fixed issue where NPC’s would disappear behind the restaurant

    Fixed bug where NPC’s would become stuck on a path upon reload

    Fixed issue with Quill where on Saturday nights at the food stall he would ask if you want to stop hanging out with him

    Issue fixed with NPC’s appearing on the map at a certain location but them actually not being there

    Fixed issue where NPC’s couldn’t be found during tutorial quests whilst with Amelia if you had quit to main menu mid game

    Fixed multiple issues in Miko’s quest around the mysterious rabbit and cake

    Fixed issues with a softlock during Leigh’s quest if you spoke to the spirit behind the canvas

    Doubled ugligrass spawn rate

    Fixed issue with Clarence’s quest where the statues wouldn’t come back if you left the room

    Fixed issues with the boar where they could hit the player when they were passing into another room

    You can find Spirittea on Steam, Switch, and Xbox now!

    The latest patch for Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled significantly drops the load times.

    The most recent patch for CTR: Nitro Fueled brings some much welcomed (and much needed) changes. Sometimes the loading of a game can make or break or it. Too long of load times will cause one to think twice about which game they feel like loading up. If enough players are effected negatively by the load times of a game, it can die (online at least). Thanks to patch 1.0.5 for Crash Team Racing, this will most likely not be the cause of death for this wacky racing title.

    In the patch, the load times between races has been reduced by approximately 14 seconds. This drops it from its original whopping 42 second load time to a much easier to swallow 28 seconds. Just enough to keep the wait at a bearable point. It is just a toony kart game, after all. The load times for Switch weren’t the the only things touched up in this update. Here is a comprehensive list of all the changes that have been made to CTR: Nitro Fueled:

    – Loading time improvements on all platforms 
    – Stability fixes when playing online 
    – Adjustment to track selection frequency when choosing tracks in online matchmaking lobbies 
    – Fix for various track lap exploits 
    – Adjustment of global cooldown for power-ups on all players (prevent timeclock/warp orb spamming) 
    – Fix to lobbies not repopulating properly after player quits 
    – Fix to position shuffling and rewards at race end 
    – Various other issues

    For more information about Nitro Fueled, be sure to check out the official Crash Bandicoot website.

    Boundless is a subscription-free MMO maintained by optional in-app purchases. Hunt, trade, craft, build an empire with friends and become Boundless. This action/adventure RPG developed by indie studio Wonderstruck and published by Square Enix released on Steam and PS4 (PSN) back in 2018. Now there’s been a large and significant update since July 16th, 2019 so you can get back into the game online and enjoy the Harvest Era! Our bread and butter just so happens to be farming here at myPotatoGames so we highlighted that new addition below!


    The developers stress that Boundless has very unique farming a variety of different angles. Even the crops themselves should be pretty interesting. For example, some of the things you’ll be able to cultivate include;

    • Organic crops, including the classic Earthyams and Starberries, but also a set of new items. Some of these will grow from the ground, but others will grow from hanging vines, so think vertically when planning your farm!
    • Inorganic fuel crops. Combustion Fraction and Kindling Mass can be cultivated in underground setups, grown away from the sunlight of the surface. These subterranean farms will need to be planned very differently from overground farms.
    • Goo – when searching Gem or Lucent Exoworlds, players will be able to gather Kernels from Goo. These are then planted in, and will grow down from, a cave roof. Goo Pigments are harvested from these, If they have been planted in Gleam they’ll even take on its colour. These are then used in Colour Sprays – a whole other system which we’ll discuss in a moment…

    Use the new farming tools such as The Hand Tiller to prepare the soil for crops, and the two new Fertilizers which will help increase the yield of said crops. There are many modifiers in place which will affect the success and productivity of a farm, such as soil type, nearby vegetation, and proximity to water. The right combination of each of these will allow crops to grow faster and more abundantly, so green-fingered Citizens will have plenty of room for experimentation. There are also new Skills to build in farming, allowing characters to become specialists in this area of the game. Irrigation is one of those important factors, whether that be with water for above ground crops, or lava for some of the more exotic offerings.

    To find out more about the Harvest Era update specifically, you can go to their updates on Steam right here. Furthermore, you can continue reading below if you are unfamiliar with this game and the general gameplay.
