July 08, 2013, 11:37 AM — At first glance I was all set to mock this new video game - Farming Simulator 2013, which lets you test out your skills at driving tractors and harvesting crops on your favorite gaming console (Xbox 360 or Sony PS3).
According to the Facebook page, their game is "the #1 farming simulation game", and the new version includes "an entirely new American environment," and new vehicles, including the Case IH Axial-Flow combine and the Magnum 340.
Proving that there's a niche market for every taste, I proudly present the summer trailer for Farming Simulator 2013, which comes out in the fall.
So go ahead and mock the game in the comments if you want - I'm looking forward to the release. It certainly beats asking friends to send me pig feed.
