  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate isn't the first game in the series I've tried to get into, but it's the one that finally stuck. Not only did MH4U suck me into it's world of perpetual gear upgrading and giant monster hunting ( read my review here ), it hooked GI editor Dan Tack as well . Dan... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Dino Crisis 2

    Some of my favorite game series ever are Capcom joints. Mega Man, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, and numerous old-school Disney games are among my all-time favorites.
