Microsoft Wants More Minecraft in the Classroom

Microsoft believes there are lots of benefits to putting Minecraft in classrooms. No doubt schoolkids agree.

“Many of the most fun parts of Minecraft, including the collaborative nature of play, the need to experiment, the open world, the earning of achievements, and the growth of players’ in-game characters as well as their personal skill sets, are also key to excellent learning environments.”

Sonic Runners Review: Flat Tire

According to Touch Arcade’s review, Sonic Runners is fun enough, but aggressive panhandling for in-app purchases really puts a damper on the experience.

The core of Sonic Runners is fine. This game could turn around in the future, because the actual gameplay is fun. They just need to pull back on how utterly aggressive and pushy the current monetization is.

Piloteer Video Review: Fun Failure
