While visiting Capcom’s booth at New York Comic Con, I had the opportunity to get some hands-on time with the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the Nintendo 3DS. However, I have tried to play Monster Hunter before and it was a complete disaster. So I opted not to cut into the long line of eager fans waiting to try the game for themselves and simply observe and gather information for you.
I’ll run down the highlights after the jump… and there’s even a special treat in it for you at the end!
When we last encountered Coming Out On Top here at Gaygamer, Obscurasoft had just delayed the gay dating sim’s release and offered backers a beta to apologize, and to whet their appetites for its eventual drop date.
Recently confirming December 10 for the game’s release, Obscurasoft has offered players another – this time spoiler-heavy – beta that delves deeper into the game’s stories and characters. A few months ago I described the game as playful and promising; follow along after the jump for my final pre-release impressions. I’ve tried to minimize the spoilers…a couple of images could be considered beans-spilling, but only about characters it’s pretty clear are on the menu from the start.
What happens when you mix the magic of Disney with the magic of Harmonix? You get Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, one of the most unique and hard-to-describe games I think I’ve ever seen. It’s a music rhythm game, which is Harmonix’s strength, but instead of playing along with the music or dancing to it, you’re conducting it and remixing it to your whim. It’s a hard sell, but is it worth picking up? Let me try to explain…
This week starts out upsetting, and doesn’t get much better! Even with a holiday! Well, it’s not all bad. Although I had the bright idea to take the alpine furniture in my house and bring it to Re-Tail to have Cyrus combine it with a ruby so I can have the same furniture design but in shiny pink! Unfortunately, I find out that all he can do is change the wood grain color and the pattern. Boring! So I asked around and found out that only certain types of furniture can be combined with certain types of gems to create that effect. Lame! So now I have to decide whether or not I want to go through that much effort. Although I should probably pull out my spooky furniture for Halloween before it actually arrives and I miss my opportunity!
Read on for this week’s drama!
During New York Comic Con, I had the opportunity to visit the DC Comics booth to check out the upcoming LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham from Traveler’s Tales/Warner Bros. Interactive. And while this game in the franchise one-ups the last one by expanding from an explorable Gotham to explorable planets, it was the level I sampled on the show floor that really had me pumped up to play this one.
There is an entire level based off the classic ’60s Batman TV series! With Adam West doing the voiceover and everything! Batgirl in her purple outfit! Robin in his short shorts! Julie Newmar’s Catwoman! It’s epic, and I would play an entire game based in this universe. Sadly, it’s just a bonus level, but the rest of the game is still looking to be pretty epic!
