Tips For Going Solo In Monster Hunter: World

While a big part of the fun in Monster Hunter: World stems from playing with friends and random players, syncing up different weapons and playstyles to deliver a deluge of punishment to a massive monster, maybe you don't want to get online or group up at all. Monster Hunter: World can be enjoyed completely by yourself as a single-player game. If you choose to go it alone, you have plenty of different tools available to make the experience manageable. While it's probably not a problem to solo your way through things like Great Jagras and other low tier monsters, when you start getting to Elder Dragons and other high-tier fare you may find yourself seeking an extra edge in the fight. Here are some tips to take with you if you want to tackle the challenges of Monster Hunter: World alone.

RPG Grind Time – What Is An RPG And How Is That Evolving?

RPG Grind Time – What Is An RPG And How Is That Evolving?

It’s the age-old question: What constitutes an RPG? This is something that’s been on my mind lately as the genre continues to grow and moves in different directions. If you ask anyone, their answer will differ depending on what they find important. For some, leveling and customizing your character are essential. For others, narrative and immersion – specifically how you control the will of your hero – are at the top of the list. This also extends to things like choice, whether it’s over the narrative or how you build your character. Wikipedia’s definition is vague almost as a way to encompass everything, stating “the player controls the actions of a character (and/or several party members) immersed in some well-defined world.”

Our 10 Most Anticipated Xbox One Games Of 2018

With 2017 completely behind us, the time for looking back on what a fantastic year it was for gaming is over. Now, it's time to look ahead at what the rest of 2018 holds.

New Gameplay Today – Subnautica

Ben Hanson has been raving about the game Subnautica for a while now. "It's like Minecraft and what we wish No Man's Sky had been," is not a direct quote, but it's close enough. Fine. Hanson wins. Leo Vader and I sat down with him to learn what, exactly, he finds so fascinating about this sci-fi underwater survival game.

There's a lot to cover in this one, and Hanson does a great job of hitting all of the high points. Leo explores the undersea world, getting a little cocky (and oxygen deprived), and also manages to craft a coveted piece of gear way earlier than Hanson managed in his playthrough. Leo truly has a gift.

Overwatch League Interview – BigGoose, Support For The Los Angeles Gladiators

The odd name of "BigGoose" tied to a character like Mercy has turned Benjamin Isohanni into one of Overwatch League's most popular players. Isohanni,  who hails from Finland, mainlines support for the Los Angeles Gladiators. After two weeks of play, the Gladiators are 2 and 2 on the season, sitting in second place behind the undefeated Seoul Dynasty. Isohanni's play has been exceptional up to this point, dazzling the crowd at times with perfectly timed resurrections and offensive outbursts.
