Hey guys, if you didn't get the memo, the giantbomb staff don't life monster hunter. That means you shouldn't like it too. All the cool kids are doing it.

1st: Are all publishers going to start having quarterly "direct" info-dumps?

2nd: Yes Brad, that is the proper American response to Monster Hunter news. (笑)

Killing two birds with one stone in Japanese = 一石二鳥

Monster Hunter is probably one of the few games I cant wait for. Remember me looks cool and all but rather wait till it gets closer.

so far i looking forward to Resident Evil Revelations (what I call the "HD" version) and monster Hunter 3 ultimate (also and "HD" version), and of course Capcom fighting games always interest me :)... not really into Remember Me.... so far

Wow that is some awesome coverage. Come on Brad. At the very least get a little info from the publisher/developer and put that in there, this is just fucking lazy.

It's the 400th version of Monster Hunter 3. The only people who care are the people that are already on board and know everything about it anyway.

So instead of offering some musings that could potentially bring in new fans or offer up some form of worthwhile comments on what was seen, we should just ignore it and leave it in the niche? That seems counter-productive to the cause of expanding an audience in any way, shape, or form...particularly after the success of animated-priority games like Dark Souls and Zombi U.

And not to be nit-picky, but it's technically only the second version of MH3 (not including the Japanese only one), and the first time the series has ever been HD. It also has cross-platform play, and some other novel things.

It would have been nice to at least have a small paragraph summarising what he saw. I'm particularly curious about how they're gunna be distributing CirclePadPros for the 3DS version. Can I even get a non-XL CPP anymore?

The combo building aspect of Remember Me sort of recalls God Hand's system of combo creation, sounds like it has potential! and yeah, getting that Darkstalkers re-release day 1. Probably the best fighting series Capcom ever did.

Posted by YoungFrey

That was a great Monster Hunter jab, and not unwaranted. The level of Wiki edits on the page for that game is minimal. There is very little forum conversation for it. Of course some fans of the series are here, but as a whole GB isn't in to MH.

Although I think it's also kind of ironic since Brad strikes me as somebody who might really dig MH if he worked past the layers opposing new players. I'd love to see a Brad & Patrick feature where they committed to playing at least 30 hours or something to give the game a truly fair shake.

Brad likes game: OMG BEST GAME EVER GOTY EVRY1 MUST PLAY AND AGREE

Brad no like game: u liek this pitiful mortal game? lolololol

Interested in the Darkstalkers HD thing, if just to see what crazy viewing angles they've conjured up.

Posted by Carlos1408

Remember Me looks like it could be pretty interesting. Still not sure if I want to invest in the new DMC though, haven't played them since 2. It looks great, just kind of on the fence.

Posted by teh_destroyer

This reminds me that Brad is a good writer, do more!

Edited by ch3burashka

I really wanna get RE: revelations but $50 for a 3ds port is a little steep. Maybe it will be cheap with ps+.

My recommendation is buy it when it drops to 10 bucks - do not support their attempt to gouge you. It's pretty filthy.

Posted by Enigma_2099

Well, I'm still waiting for a new Darkstalkers game.

Hey, did you hear the new Devil May Cry was pretty great?

I... don't... care.

Posted by sprode

So Capcom has one original thing, and there are people going on about how Capcom is looking bright. I don't get it.

Well, I get that you like Monster Hunter, but even a new Darkstalkers would take the sting off of expecting me to get excited about DLC. But they'd no doubt blow that, so it's probably best they churn out an update alongside their RE port.

Monster Hunter made me laugh. Good play, Shoemaker.

Pumped for the DmC DLC, and for RE:Revelations.

Posted by MrGetBonus

Lol, fuck Monster Hunter.

Posted by Roger778

The only game I'm interested in on that lineup is Remember Me. It looks to be one of the most intriguing games of the year.

Edited by skrutop

Remember Me has some real potential. I can't wait to see more about it.

Jury's still out on Remember Me...for me... I want to see reviews, or at least some in-depth hands-on right before release before I decide on purchasing. I'm excited for the DmC DLC, though I'm not sure if I'll pick it up right away.

Posted by SpudBug

That was pretty funny but I wish he had made some type of effort at learning a thing or two about monster hunter.

That's all the Monster Hunter coverage I need. Thank you, Brad.

Posted by ripelivejam

brads dismissal be damned im probably still gonna get monster hunter. looks like itll be a damn fine time sink for a portable system, plus ive never played one before.

great article regardless brad!

Posted by EnchantedEcho

Remember Me looks fantastic, really liking their art direction and the split city theme. DMC DLC could be cool too, really enjoyed the main game and am game to play a few more chapters.

Posted by WickedCobra03

I am kind of down with Remember me and seeing how that turns out. I dunno, I feel like it might turn out a little bland trying to play up it's neo-underground Paris, but not really executing. I hope it does though!

And as for Resident Evil Revelations, I am totally up for that, but like you said Patrick, that is more of a $30 or $40 game at most... I am not sure if I am feeling $60 out of that. It will be a wait and see, and even then if it does turn out good, I might wait for a price drop if it is indeed priced at $60.

Posted by supamon

Lol at the one liner for Monster Hunter but it really is an amazingly fun game. I don't even bother keeping up with the info on new versions, I know I'll be getting it.

Posted by dvorak

A lot of folks really like Monster Hunter, myself included. But even if Brad was a fan, I mean just saying that there's another Monster Hunter coming is enough.

"It's Monster Hunter, but it's kinda new and has more stuff!"

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

Remember Me involving Zombies...Alot of Capcom games seem to use Zombies, I wonder if it is just to do with they don't know how to do modern AI.

Posted by The_Vein

Remember Me and DmC DLC are both cool to me.

Edited by Drebin_893

I'm a big fan of more text entries from you guys on the site. Thanks Brad!

Edited by Klei

To me, Remember Me looks pretty bad. The setting is cool, sure, Neo-Paris and all, but the actual gameplay seems super lame and the animations leave a lot to be desired.

Edited by Losfer

@hawkerace: I'm hoping Dead Rising 3 will be a launch title for the next gen.

Posted by Solh0und

Can't wait for Virgil's Downfall. Hope it's not underwhelming!

Isn't there a Monster Hunter 3DS game coming?

Edited by ApexDefect

Remember Me is the direction I've been waiting for Capcom to start pushing in for a while. By that I mean that I've been waiting for them to release an original IP again. Its an added plus that it looks legitimately interesting, looking forward to messing with their combo system.

Edited by dstopia

@wes899:

It's actually the third version in Japan, but the second one for the west.

Please inform yourself before spewing bullshit.

Posted by BBQBram

If Neo-Paris contains even a sliver of William Gibson atmosphere, I'm sold.

Edited by Neckbear

The filter they're using for the Darkstalker's screenshots looks like shit. Hopefully you can turn that off.

Remember Me's combo system sounds very similar to Godhand

This was exactly what I was thinking! Can't wait to see more!

Edited by Pr1mus

I forgot about Remember Me. Adding it to my "I want to know more" list. The premise looks neat.

More DmC is always welcome.

And i'm surprised at how well that RE Revelations HD port turned out. If only Capcom had put as much effort in the RE4 HD port...

Also dat HD ass.

Posted by PJ

Wo wo wo Brad. Don't get all excited about Monster Hunter. Hehe, MH is so not a game that's even worth releasing in the western world.

Beyond excited for the DmC DLC, which is something I don't want to say out loud. Just wish they'd get it out sooner, but I guess I'll just play the main game 2 more times until then.

One day someone will figure out the perfect time to release DLC. I want more DmC now!

The free Bloody Palace DLC will be out on the 20th, though. Their release plan isn't too bad.

RE6 PC version quick look ?

Vergil shouldn't play anything like Dante, sounds like Ninja Theory screwed that up. In UMvC3 and DmC3 the two play very differently.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Even using UMC3 as my example. Seeing how Virgil has all his signature moves the news that he is very similar is disappointing. I barely played Virgil in DMC3se so maybe he was similar feeling to Dante in that. But with his swords, teleports, rapid slash, dimisions slash, etc he should not play like Dante. Unless Brad just means he has moves mapped to the same buttons. Like when he says all the weapons play similar.

I think its just Brad generalizing. It didn't sound like he spent a whole lotta time with it. The fact that Vergil has his Summon swords and teleports already says to me that he will play differently.

Edited by Nekroskop

Dead Rising 3 will be developed by Ninja Theory. Expect a young Frank West with white hair and an iPhone 5 shooting EXTREME pictures on his skateboard.

All the zombies will have guns.

FUCK YOU!

Posted by WrenchNinja

That's definitely all the coverage Monster Hunter deserves.

Posted by AdebisiStyle

Photo galleries worked great for me (on a Mac, Firefox). Also, I am always happy to read a well written article. Patrick links to some well written interesting stuff on worth reading, and Guns of Navarro has quickly become something I look forward to every week as well. I always enjoy reading the stuff Brad writes too. In short, y'all keep writing 'em, I'll keep reading em.
