START ME UP, TENNO: Starting out in #Warframe for the first time? Perhaps you tinkered around with the game during the beta and took an extended leave after that (hint: it's a very different game now than it was back then). Regardless, finding your bearings around the game could be tough at first. Here's a comprehensive Beginners Guide to Warframe to help you get started on the right track. A mix between Diablo, Destiny and Borderlands, Warframe is a free-to-play action shooter for PC, PS4 and Xbox One that features solid melee and great gunplay. Just be ready for it to swallow a bunch of your time...

MONSTER HUNTER WORLD MICROTRANSACTIONS: There's DLC, then there's DLC, if you know what I mean. Monster Hunter World got much love during the post #Battlefront2 fiasco after its developers said the game will have free DLC and zip, zilch, nada #lootboxes (i.e. no paid loot boxes). At the same time, they also said that while paid loot boxes won't be present, there will be paid cosmetics. This has fueled debate within the #MonsterHunter community on whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. So which side of the debate are you on? For my thoughts, check out my article below about #microtansactions in #MonsterHunterWorld.

I LIKE YOUR ATTITUDE: And you'll need to have a positive one to boot in order to enjoy the latest entry in the "Xeno" series of #JRPG titles. Like its predecessors, #Xenoblade Chronicles 2 requires a lot of patience and perseverance in order grasp its mechanics and survive its serious grind. If you stick with it long enough until everything clicks, however, you'll find a classic #JRPG that emulates what fans loved about the genre's Golden Age during console generations past. Read on for my thoughts on the game for the #NintendoSwitch.

SO TASTY! The Monster Hunter World Beta has come and gone and many folks have finally been able to sample parts of this well-done steak. Personally, this is the first time a #MonsterHunter game felt so new to me since Monster Hunter Tri. Here are my thoughts on my favorite changes in the game as well as other general impressions (loved playing it on a PS4 Pro). So what did you think of the #MonsterHunterWorld demo? What did you like? What do you think needs more work? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

ONE DOWN, ONE TO GO: With Mega Man 11 finally being made official, there's just one more thing every diehard Mega Man fan wants. That would be Mega Man Legends 3. I say that as someone who not only played both Legends games but also imported their Japenese versions as well as the Tron and Kobun side story from Japan (AND bought it again when it came to the U.S. as the Misadventures of Tron Bonne). Heck, I'd even appreciate a Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 remake done in the vein of the Wind Waker on Wii U. That Win Waker remake made my niece a big Zelda fan. Maybe a #MegaManLegends remake will do the same for her and a younger generation who primarily know Mega Man from Smash Bros., hm? Make it so, Capcom!

POKEMON'S LAST HURRAH FOR 3DS? All good things must come to an end. And if all indications hold true, then #Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon would be the last mainline Pokemon #games to hit the #3DS as the popular series packs up and heads on over to the #NintendoSwitch. So is this last journey worth taking the trip? Check my review below for my thoughts as well as a rundown of that's new in the game. So what's your favorite Pokemon generation so far? Make sure to post your favorite Pokemon game in the comments!

I SENSE A DISTURBANCE IN THE FORCE: Star Wars Battlefront 2 was supposed to be the chosen one, the game that righted the wrongs of its predecessor. And it certainly looked like it would with the addition of a campaign on top of its multiplayer modes. But then something happened along the way and it ended up as the poster child for #microtransactions taken a step too far. That being said, the game does some things well, too. So is this the droid, er, #StarWars game you're looking for? For my thoughts, check out my Star Wars #Battlefront2 review below.

GROUND, MEET BOOTS: Just in case you missed it, the latest #CallOfDuty game is more focused on boots on the ground. That's boots on the ground, boots on the ground and even more boots on the ground. Anyway, Call of Duty returns to its familiar roots with #CallOfDutyWWII, a high-octane take on the most destructive war in human history. The game eschews the jetpacks and advanced tech of recent entries in the series with more traditional combat and appearances by awkward and angry Josh Duhamel. Seriously, guy needs to chill in this game. So is #CODWW2 a much welcome return to form for the series? I share my take in the review below.

PAYBACK'S A, WELL, YOU-KNOW-WHAT: At least that's the case for the latest entry in EA's long-running driving series. Need for Speed Payback has some obvious fast and furious dreams based on its narrative and art direction. There's certainly stuff to like here including a vast sandbox to explore and a beefy list of cars to collect. A shallow protagonist combined with a mobile game-style grind and card system, however, add some speed bumps to its path. So what do you think about #NeedForSpeedPayback? For my thoughts, click on the link below.
