With Lias out on assignment, I take the time to show Conner another cool couch co-op game that I think he’d like. Today we explore Next Up Hero. It’s an action game that has light RPG and Rouge-Like elements. Each “hero” has its own abilities and attacks which you can improve as you play different “ventures”. There is a light story but the draw here is the ability to create your own “ventures”. Conner very much likes to create his own levels and games so I try to show him games where you can do that. We don’t get to a high enough level to show that part off, but this early look will give him and others an idea if this is the kind of game you want to play and make levels for. Check it out!
Today I present to the boys another game I think they’d like. This is the critically acclaimed 2D action-platformer called Hollow Knight. It started out on the PC in 2017 but then came to the Xbox and PS4 late last year. Now as they are gearing up to release their sequel Hollow Knight: Silksong, I wanted to try out the highly rated original game. Also, it was free with our GamePass subscription, so why not?! Check it out and see what the boys and I think about this game!
Hollow Knight is developed by Team Cherry and is available on the PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

Lately, Conner has been highly anticipating the release of Minecraft Dungeons. That’s why, when I saw this game called Riverbond show up as part of Xbox Game Pass, I thought it might be a game worth a try. Watch as I show the boys this new co-op action voxel game and see what we think!

Today I show the boys a new free to play battle game called Minion Masters Forced to Duel. It uses many of the same free to play structures that we are used to, such as having a battle pass, daily challenges, and many different modes to play. There are a lot of systems at play so there is a lot to go over, but the boys seem very interested and ask a lot of good questions.
Give it a watch and let us know what you think of this game? Have you played it? Does it seem cool? Do you have any questions after watching this video? We have just barely begun to learn what this game has to offer, but so far I’m quite impressed with it. We’ll see if we stick with it for more than a season or not!
We’re playing this on the Xbox One, but it also seems to be out on Steam and Discord, so check it out!

We are back with a late game look at Astroneer. Warning, if you want to play this game and make discoveries on your own, don’t watch this video! We are spoiling some of the later secrets you might find in the game. That said, I show the boys where I’m at as we try to dig deep in one of the worlds, and we investigate an unidentified flying object in the solar system. Check it out!

Hey everyone. We’re back to take a second look at Astroneer. The first time we were basically learning about the game and exploring the homeworld for the first time. In that video, we found a mysterious object on the planet. Today we try to activate the object to see what it does. I am also ready to take off into space for the first time, so join us as we take a second look into the early parts of Astroneer!

Today Conner wants to show everyone a game he discovered. He saw some trailers on YouTube, and ended up spending his own money to buy the game on the Switch. It’s not a new game but it’s new to him, check it out and see what he thinks of Undertale!

Today we take a look at a game that falls into my genre of interest, a Sci-Fi, exploration, crafting game called Astroneer. It’s much like No Man’s Sky but it has a smaller more curated star system. As we find out today, it has some mysteries to solve as well, even though it doesn’t offer much in the way of story or motivation. Check it out!

Today I show the boys a new Strategy RPG called Wargroove. It borrows heavily from the classic Nintendo DS game called Advance Wars, but it does add a little more. The game offers its own map editor, campaign editor, and cutscene editor. Enough for users to make their own games. Check it out as I show the boys a level and then we play around a little bit in the editors.
