Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is one of those games I never saw myself picking up. I had a bunch of issues with the original Tri on the Wii and never ended up playing it as much as I should have because of those issues. When I heard that they were doing an updated rerelease of the game, I wasn’t terribly excited. However, my buddy (the same one I discussed the lack of augmented reality on the 3DS with!) decided to grab the demo while he was here, and we gave it a shot. Have I mentioned that I love it when I’m wrong?
A bit of a backstory to this post, just so you guys can hopefully get the ‘this was amusing based on circumstances’ feeling that I got from it. A buddy of mine had visited yesterday and we started talking about the 3DS and the woefully-underused augmented reality features. If you know anything about this game, you’ll get a tiny chuckle out of the fact that I discovered it about five hours later. If not… Well, that’s what I’m here for.
At least for this week or so.
Anyway, yeah, I’m still around. Just got through graduating (Bachelor’s in Communication) and getting finals and stuff out of the way. I’m taking a month or so off to just sit back and relax (and get caught up on my ever-growing ‘stuff to watch’ list) before hitting up the job market and hoping people still hire around here. This means you guys are probably gonna get more Grass Pants goodness (or badness, whichever you prefer) in the coming weeks.
Thankfully, this isn’t one of those times where I say I’m coming back, post one thing, then disappear again for two, three months (hi, second half of 2012). Time off from Guild Wars and League of Legends has given me the opportunity to give some… less-talked-about, we’ll say, games a shot. Mostly RPGs, as I am a weak man who fears change.
So yeah, new stuff is indeed coming tomorrow and it’s feeling pretty good to actually have stuff to write about again. Also, I may or may not be giving this whole ‘video content’ thing a shot. I’ve got a few ideas, but I’m really picky about quality and presentation, so nothing’s set in stone yet.
Anyway, thanks to you guys for putting up with this super-erratic schedule I’ve had lately. I can’t promise it’s going to get better, but I’ll certainly try to be a bit more consistent or a bit more transparent if I’m going to drop off the face of the internet for a month or so. Anyway, it’s nearly 4 AM, so I’m out. As always, thanks for reading and have a good’un!
I know this is really late, considering that EO4 came out a few months ago, but I like to get things nice and beat (not 100%’d) before going in for a review. I’ve never actually played the others, so get ready for lots of EO3 comparisons! Anyway, while EO4 isn’t my first shot at the series, it is by far the best and was definitely worth the pre-order.
I love champions who can gank in new and interesting ways. Zac is certainly new and interesting (and all kinds of silly), but is he worth dropping the money or IP on? Let’s find out!
So, think of the best series of news you can for this game. An under-appreciated and awkward champion rework? Check. ARAM queue with dodge penalties? Check. Hints at a flawed design being updated? Check. Alright, so we’ve got a pretty nice list, yeah? Well let’s add to that with the biggest, coolest-in-my-opinion thing Riot has done in ages: Everyone’s favorite troll is being given an icy, beard-tastic makeover!

Well that certainly was a month off. Can’t promise things are going to be Monday/Wednesday/Friday levels of posting again, but I should be somewhat more regular. Maybe. Anyway, just got done watching the first half of Tiger & Bunny dubbed. Aside from a few nitpicks and flubbed lines, this is honestly the best dub I’ve seen in years. Join me after the jump and I’ll break down the good and the bad of the series so far.
