At #X15, I got the chance to get hands-on with Studio MDHR’s highly-stylized game Cuphead. What did I think of it? It’s incredible! One other thing that is incredible is Chad Moldenhauser, co-founder of Studio MDHR, who took the time to chat with me about his company’s upcoming game.

The Last Guardian Will NOT Appear at #E32015 and Here's the Reason Why...

Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours.

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers.
