This week sees
the number of blogs drop. I can only assume everyone is now in love with
Monster Hunter: World and too busy hunting elder dragons to write!
For February 15 – February 21:
Hunter World Tips and Tricks
Jenniferttookewi is here to offer some Monster Hunter tips. Unfortunately, her
first tip is essential. Simply beating the game will help open up a lot of
monsters and quests, but the fact that the “story” and what I consider the main
game of Monster Hunter are so tied together is annoying. Basically, ask
questions if you’re unsure about something, take in the game world, and don’t
always jump into battle after battle. I have the luxury of knowing the game
series inside and out, so it’s fun to mentor friends who have never played
Monster Hunter before, but this blog is a nice reminder of things newcomers might not know
and Games: Why We Like it
Writergirl2394 has a Valentine’s Day-themed blog for us! It’s about love in
video games. I definitely think Uncharted did romance quite well, and Catherine
is just a hilarious take on it considering otherworldly beings are involved.
There is no better romance than one between a Monster Hunter hunter and his
weapon of choice, however.
Gaming Life: Pt. 2 – Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Art of Replayability
Dominic Cichocki has played more Wolfenstein than even I have (and The New
Order was my game of the year when it came out). “This is why I think the game
is so replayable, as strange as it might seem. The story, and the feelings it
evokes, is unlike any other game I’ve played. It’s not just a game about
fighting Nazis – it is also a fight for social justice.” I can agree with that!
and the Joy of Indie Gaming
MightyMagikarp is here to write about a game I really, really want to play. I
mean, look at how detailed that pixel art is! Absolutely wild. What really has
me intrigued is how ‘Karp insists that the story is very mature. It sounds like
it might pull at my heart strings a bit much. I’m a little hesitant after reading about “the vagueness of the ending,” but it is still on my
to-play list after reading this blog.
of the Colossus Was a Game Ahead of Its Time, Yet Perfect for That Period in
Refle is not afraid of placing Shadow of the Colossus into the masterpiece
conversation. It’s hard to argue with that when you see everyone on Twitter raving
about the new remake/rerelease. Heck, even the soundtrack is considered
“God Tier,” which I didn’t know was a tier we rated games on but I’m all for
it. Basically, Refle goes through why this game is a masterpiece, but an even
more perfect one because of its blemishes.
am Heavy Weapons Guy and This is My Problem
It’s been years since I’ve played Team Fortress 2, but StarterPack is making me
regret that decision. Just reading about the game reminds me of the fond
moments I’ve had with it when I booted it up on PC after giving it a go on
console. This blog about playing as a Heavy is a fun read, even if you might
not understand all of it.
