Gotta Hunt them all!

So it’s been a while since I posted on the blog, and by that I mean it’s been about 6 months or so. To be honest, I have written a few articles during my long absence, but I never really posted them, mostly due to me thinking my work is not up to par. Regardless, it’s a habit that I’ll be getting past, and the best way to do that would be to obviously spend more time posting.

So from one monster series to another, I bring up my current addiction: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the 3DS. For those unfamiliar with the series, Monster hunter is a series of games, where you play as a hunter who hunts large monsters, and then carves up said monsters for resources, which are used for armor and weapons. However, similar to Vindictus, to fight certain monsters you have to take on quests. In some cases you’ll be fighting more than one monster at a time. Or possibly take on a really large monster which is similar to a raid boss. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (to save time i’ll simply say MH3U) came out last week. Since then, I have played for a good enough amount of time to offer my thoughts of the game.

Did these mega companies impress the press and gamers alike? Well, that depends on who you’re talking about.

See what I mean here.
