Hands-On: Coming Soon To 3DS

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Adam: My experience with Monster Hunter is very limited, so I can’t speak on any major changes made. I was impressed with the methodical gameplay though, it seems like it could really reward planning in the full game as each piece of equipment offers such varied strategy and execution. For example, we were put up against a large...

Hands-On: Sonic Boom

Jul 14, 2014

Adam: I was quite looking forward to Sonic Boom since its team is composed of people behind one of my favourite 3D platformers, Jak & Daxter.
