I just don’t get it, I tried… I really really tried. Fallout 76 just isn’t what I wanted. Or maybe it’s not want I expected. I don’t know. I absolutely love the idea of post-apocalyptic world where players are emerging for the first time and have to survive against the unknown and potentially other players. … Read more Fallout 76… I Just Don’t Get It
Those were my exact words to Jason (Gluten Mifflin) the day he suggested playing Minecraft. At the time I knew very little of the game. I knew it was a world composed entirely of blocks. I also knew that you used said blocks to build stuff and protect yourself before monsters came out at night. … Read more Minecraft? “I ain’t playing with f@&$king blocks!”
I remember first hearing about Minecraft many years ago and thinking: “Graphics are terrible, concept is stupid, it’s never going to last.” Boy was I wrong. 11 years later I have clocked a lot of time on the PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and iPhone versions of Minecraft. Presently, myself and Martin (StarDoggedMoon) having been working … Read more Minecraft – My First Night 11 Years Ago
Dear Minecraft, I hear its your 11th Birthday today! Let me start by wishing you a very, very, “Happy Birthday!” When I first heard about you, well I don’t really remember when or where that was. It was probably from some gaming website somewhere and I probably thought “oh, that’s curious.” I didn’t mark my … Read more Happy Birthday, Minecraft…
Minecraft. A game that many love and many don’t understand. At the surface the game looks ridiculous when you compare its graphics to top tier games on current generations. Once you dig deeper into it, it sucks you in and never lets you go. The game is deep, yet simplistic. Minecraft has come along way … Read more Minecraft Quality of Life Upgrades

Big news that hit this week is that the Nintendo Switch surpassed the PlayStation 4 in sales in Japan despite the PlayStation 4 being out for three years before the Nintendo Switch and Japan being the home turf of both systems. Woopididooo! Am I the only one that does not see this as a big … Read more Nintendo Switch Surpasses PlayStation 4 Sales in Japan….And?
Microtransactions – you either love them or you hate them. No one can argue that microtransactions are the way developers and publishers keep the cash cow growing. In the past the only way for them to make money was at the initial release of the game and if they release a paid DLC later on. … Read more Microtransactions: Are they good or bad?
I am what you could call a “controller snob.” Ever since the early days of the Nintendo Entertainment System I could never use a 3rd party controller. During that time there were some great controllers out there that included rapid fire or even a macro type ability but even with those literal game changing features … Read more Third Party Controllers, a thought.
Anyone who has played Minecraft knows how large a realm can be. Some biomes are so far from each other they are almost unreachable or maybe even be a one way trip. That’s why StarDoggedMoon and I have created the Nether Transit Authority, or the NTA for short, to let us travel throughout the realm … Read more New Video – Nether Transit Authority
Maybe I’m just old school but I really hate the current state of DLC. When I was a kid a new game stood on its own or it failed. There was no paid or free DLC to extend the life of the game and certainly no announced pre-release DLC. Now don’t take this as a … Read more To buy or not to buy: DLC
Today StarDoggedMoon and I decided to take a break from exploring and building on our Minecraft Realm and take on the Wither, which we have never done. I am not even sure whose idea it really was but we immediately agreed and got started planning right away. We obviously knew what the Wither was and … Read more Fighting the Wither – Minecraft – a Co-Op moment

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the US and those abroad who celebrate. Spend the day with the family and the night gaming!!!
Not quite! Though I’d love to see that lovable little guy from the Frost Legion once again. The world today however is not quite ready for some kind of crazy Terraria/Minecraft crossover. Instead it seems, that Minecraft could be offering players and “event mob” like that of the aforementioned Frost Legion with the introduction of … Read more Could Mr. Stabby be making his way to Minecraft??

It’s the original Pokémon GO. Geocaching, is an outdoor adventure game that does indeed have some distinct similarities to the popular virtual search game and the variants that have popped up since. The biggest difference being that Geocaching is based in the physical world and there are no random spawns, there are no spawns at … Read more A Different Kind of Co-Op Gaming: Geocaching.

Seeing as how I’m just a a few Dave’s Triples short of being that dude from the World of Warcraft episode of South Park, only shittier at video games, I felt it was time to get out for some much needed exercise and a night out on the town. We started the night at a … Read more A Different Kind of Co-Op Gaming.
I would have to say that Left 4 Dead was the first game that got me to love co-op gaming. This game also changed my views on a genre that I hated…zombies. Ugh! If you’re not familiar with Left 4 Dead, its a 4 player co-op zombie survival game. There are 4 survivors that need … Read more Left 4 Dead 3…Where are you?
