Minecraft: Demo Review

It might seem hard to believe, but…I’ve never played Minecraft before.  I know, Minecraft has got to be one of the most popular games of all time, but…nope.  Never played it.  Seeing as I had recently tried out the demo for a similar game called Terraria, however, I decided it was time I gave Minecraft…

Portal Knights: Demo Review

My first impression upon starting the Portal Knights demo was that it felt a lot like Minecraft with RPG elements.  The game is described as a sandbox RPG, and the world is split up into a bunch of randomly-generated islands, though the demo only had us exploring one island after I spent a good deal…

Terraria: Demo Review

To be honest, I tend to get rather overwhelmed by games that give me too much freedom.  A game that can be played almost endlessly is more akin to a nightmare to me than the exciting prospect that it really should be.  Sure, I do like freedom in my games, freedom to complete a challenge…

Do It Yourself: Animal Crossing New Horizons vs Minecraft

Despite having plenty to play at the moment, I’ve recently found myself thinking about returning to either Animal Crossing: New Horizons or Minecraft. There’s just something about building your own stuff in games I just can’t help but find compelling (when it’s done well), so it’s hard to stay away from those sorts of games…

Minecraft Dungeons is the Plainest Dungeon Crawler Ever…And I Love It!

Minecraft Dungeons finally released last week, and it received pretty average scores across the board. After playing it for myself, I can see why. Minecraft Dungeons doesn’t really have any depth to it. There are no character classes, and item upgrading is limited to randomly rolled enchantments. Combat is differentiated mostly by weapon type and…

Listmas 2019: The Best Ways to Get Around

One of the best things about gaming in general is the myriad of transportation options available to players. Most of the time it’s mundane stuff like cars, horses and planes, but not always. Sometimes we get to indulge in a bit of fantasy and unreality, and that’s where the magic happens! Using these is part…

Cross-play Has Finally Come Minecraft on PS4

As reluctant as they were to allow it, it looks like Sony is being true to their word in regard to allowing cross-play on their platform. The next wave of cross-play-enabled games is coming, and the first among them is Minecraft! The Bedrock version of the game has finally hit PlayStation 4, and it’s about…

Minecraft is Still Incredible!

There are few games that I’m able to come back to year after year and still thoroughly enjoy. Most of them are childhood favorites: Super Mario RPG, Metroid Prime, Majora’s Mask and such. There’s also Minecraft, a game which I never thought I’d like until I tried it. Despite preferring games that offer curated, structured…
