Monster Hunter: The Primal Urge

Monster Hunter was a game I had heard many people talk about for many years. It was a game that I knew I wanted to try, that I was not sure if I was prepared to play. It was a game that I had heard had a crazy big following across many consoles, but required a huge investment to learn. It had a huge learning curve, and was not an easy game to learn.  I don’t remember exactly when, but at som...

Minecraft DLC Dangers

So, the easy way to remember this? Did you buy it with dollars or minecoins? Dollars are console specific, minecoins work wherever you are signed in. Keep in mind, the Mario Mash-Up pack and skins are still console exclusive, so you can not use them in Realms or non Switch only play.

Intelligently Incorporating Adaptive Difficulty

Capcom’s Shady Business Practices – Building A Legacy of Mistrust

Yesterday one of my co-hosts on Infendo Radio wrote a rather brilliant article about gaming culture and entitlement, a topic which deserves more attention because, let’s face it, we gamers are an entitled bunch. We’re the same gamers who are willing to wait an extra year for $10 off Yooka Laylee, just because it took too long to come out. However, one of the examples used in that artic...

Minecraft Realms: The Feature I Didn’t Know I Needed
