There's the Monster Hunter announcement.  Monster Hunter Rise.  March 26.

 

As someone who hasn't played the Monster Hunter series, what does it play like?  Am I best off finding a cheapish copy of an older game to see if it would be for me?

 

EDIT: Ori and the Will of the Wisps is really good if you haven't played it elsewhere.  I liked it better than the first by quite a bit.

Monster Hunter is basically it's own style of game at this point so it's hard to say if you'd like it without trying it. I know the older ones are often on sale, in fact I think the Switch one is on sale now. And it's best to try that as the 3DS ones all control a bit wonky.

 

Personally, I detest the series despite trying it several times now but a ton of people love it. It does have a social aspect to it as well that entices people if they participate in online play.

Lost some sleep to THPS. It's very, very good. The Xbox One controller is a tad cramped for some of the more hectic gameplay since the d-pad isn't level with the buttons, I think the PS1 / PS2 controllers were the best bet for this series. 

 

Then again, I got really good at THPS3 on the Game Cube, and that d-pad is worse.

 

 

LoL yea I literally bought the Gamecube version after I already beat THPS 3 on PS2 because it was like a whole new challenge on that nightmare controller.

 

I started THPS with the Dreamcast as well so the Xbox controller is not a problem. Really happy that they brought the HORSE mode back as that was our mode of choice back in the day.

They seriously banned you for earning too much? Lame.

Better than me. I got banned for forgetting to update them when I turned off my landline phone LoL

GamePass for September is up, nothing crazy but some interesting stuff

I had been waiting to return to Destiny 2 until Shadowkeep was added to Game Pass because I never picked it up but it's only "Coming Soon". I guess that has to do with Beyond Light getting pushed back. Oh well, gives me time to talk myself out of the old Destiny addiction LoL

Hey at least you can all agree on disagreeing with me. My favorite Zelda is Zelda 2. I find the main mechanics of the series unfun and dislike most of the games.
