Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary

Dear Diary,

After all the drama last week, I was grateful to have a little quiet in Geneva this time around. Although I’m constantly reminded that Halloween is coming up and I’m not prepared for it at all. I never decorated my house, and I haven’t bought any of the masks yet to participate in the holiday. Although I’m not sure I really want to bother. Maybe I should check and see if there’s any spooky furniture that I still need that I didn’t get last year. See if I should try again this year. Of course, as I said, I haven’t decorated yet, so maybe it’s not worth it? We’ll see…

NYCC ’14: Hands On: Resident Evil Revelations 2

I have to admit that around Resident Evil 4, Capcom basically lost me. The series had become too combat-heavy and I prefer my survival horror games to actually have some horror in them. So it was with great delight that I devoured Resident Evil Revelations on my Nintendo 3DS in 2012. And now I can get excited about Resident Evil Revelations 2, due out on PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015. And after my hands-on time with the game at New York Comic Con, I’m really looking forward to it. (Even if it’s console only now and not portable… I just have way more time to play portables with my long commute!)

NYCC ’14: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

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!

Coming Out On Top: New Beta And Release Date

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.
