More Thoughts From Me #52: Play & Learn

This More Thoughts From Me is about Edutainment games. You can and should learn from video games. Its great to have a fun game that has  an entertaining story. We all want that escape from reality. Fun is important. But why can’t you, sometimes at least, have fun and learn something too? Most people seem to think of Edutainment as a genre for kids. Many of these games are, in fact, designed for little kids. Some, such as Brain Age,…

 

Lego City Undercover Trailer (For PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC)

Lego City Undercover is one of my favorite Wii U games. I am still surprised that the game remained a Wii U exclusive for so long. Of course, all good things come to an end (especially when dealing with third party developers) and Lego City Undercover will be going to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this Spring. Check out the first trailer for the game below. Lego City Undercover is a very good game. I enjoyed…

 

Going Old School on Steam

Over the Christmas holidays, I have downloaded a number of great, older titles from Steam to bring back parts of my childhood. With time off, I've been able to play through Kings Quest 5, 6 and 7, Roller Coaster Tycoon - also on the iPad, more of that to come - and Pharaoh + Cleopatra! It's been wonderful, and highlights why I enjoy PC gaming so much.

 
 

Battlestations Ready! How to Create the Ultimate PC Gaming Setup

There’s something wonderful about customising your desk, PC and accessories to follow the same colour scheme and theme.

Image and Form’s Steamworld Heist was one of my favorite games this year and last and Steamworld Dig before it was a blast too. And recently we found out that the company had another game in the works! Their next game is a Steamworld game for sure but we really don’t much else about it. In today’s The Engine Room, a youtube video series from Image & Form, the developer revealed that their next game is coming in 2017. They…

 

Stardew Valley – Just One More Day…

I've been playing a ton of Stardew Valley lately on the Xbox One, and I'm beginning to suffer from what I like to call, Just One More Day Syndrome. When you explain a farming simulator game to a friend who might not be that into video games, you probably sound like an idiot? You build and take care of a farm? You have nothing better to do? And yet, it is so addicting, in the best possible way.

 
 

Stardew Valley Exhaustion Problem

I think I need to blast this PSA: If you are playing Stardew Valley, don't let your energy bar fall to 0. You will severely regret doing that. The extra log you might chop, or the extra stone you might destroy, just isn't worth what will happen after becoming exhausted. Let me explain.

Wayforward’s Shantae is a action/adventure/platformer that has appeared on the 3DS, Wii U, and other platforms too. I have reviewed and played a few of these games and they are always good.

According to the Kickstarter page for the game, it will be released for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PSVita for that game for sure. They…

Last night developer Telltale revealed a Guardians of the Galaxy game is coming. Guardians of the Galaxy will get its own video game thanks to Telltale Games. The game will be multiple episodes and be coming to PC, consoles, and mobile devices.…
