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,…

 

Rime Developer Shares Gameplay Secrets (Video)

Recently, we found out that Rime would be coming to the Nintendo Switch (and other systems). Since then, the developer has been sharing more footage of the game on IGN. We have the latest video about the game below.   Wow! Rime really does look amazing. It is reminding me of Ico more and more. I wasn’t a huge fan of Ico, but I did like the graphics. Though, Rime may look even better than Ico. I’m definitely more interested…

 

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…

Image & Form’s The Engine Room: New SteamWorld Game Coming Next Year (video)

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 on Xbox One Is…OK

Don't be too mislead by the title of this article. Will just 'OK' in my opinion (for the time being, more on that later), I still think Stardew Valley is an outstanding title. Or, it will be an outstanding title when the various bugs and control problems are addressed and fixed. On the surface, though, I think Concerned Ape did a great job translating this game from the PC to the consoles, and despite the issues, I know I will sink hours into this title!
