Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate dropped $10 before launch for some reason

Videogames go on sale all the time, but it isn't often that we see discounts before they even launch. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's releasing sometime in early 2015, and it already dropped $10 in price. According to a listing o...

Felynes can dress up as Dante, Blanka, and Chun-Li in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

I'm no Monster Hunter player but I'm liking the cross-game costumes for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Well, most of them. In line with today's Devil May Cry re-release news, Capcom has shown a Felyne outfit based on Dante. That...

You got Madoka Magica in my Monster Hunter Frontier G

Apparently Capcom is going forward with yet another crossover with the Monster Hunter series -- Madoka Magica, an anime that started off as a TV show, then became a manga and spawned three movies. Weapons like Mado...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sells over two million in its first week

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate went on sale on October 11th in Japan, and already it has mustered up over two million in sales. The original base game for reference sold roughly 4.1 million units for comparison. Now that it sold over two million, the series doesn't have to be canceled, due to Capcom's new "AAA logic." Just sell yourself to Nintendo already. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom]

Okay, this Mega Man armor for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is cute

Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate gets an amazing Samus costume
by Chris Carter

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still coming in 2015 outside of Japan, and there's yet another Nintendo/Capcom crossover coming. A Samus costume is making an appearance, and yes, it will be coming to the western version of the game.

At this point I think Nintendo and Capcom are friends enough where the latter can just, give over the rights to Mega Man games to the former? I mean, think about it. Capcom can pull a George Lucas and retain merchandise rights. Nintendo can make great games and Capcom can still collect -- do a five to ten year deal and see where it goes.

Enh, enh?

Mr. Resetti is in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, you guys

There's yet another tie-in for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and it's the best one yet -- Animal Crossing! Players will be able to make their Felyne companions look like Mr. Resetti and Isabelle. Now, I'm not much of a Monster H...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate brings a lot of verticality to the table photo
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate brings a lot of verticality to the table
by Brett Makedonski

When the west finally gets Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate -- what Capcom calls "the most complete version of 4 that it'll get" -- players are going to need to turn their attention to the layering of the game. Rather than solely ground-level areas, Ultimate features plenty of ledges to climb up and to hop onto monsters' backs from. That's the big difference from the Monster Hunter you may already know and love.

Gone are the water terrains, which Capcom called "controversial." The newly placed emphasis on vertical play replaces them, in what is kind of the "hook" for the game. However, that doesn't mean Capcom expects the same mixed reception. The opposite, in fact. It anticipates that players will welcome the verticality because it's fluidly interwoven into play. Small ledges will be automatically ascended, and larger ones will actually take some effort to climb.

With this new information in mind, a party of four of us set off to best the Daimyo Hermitaur -- a giant crab-like creature. Equipped with a weapon called the Insect Glaive, one of our members sent insects toward our target to retrieve essences from him. The Insect Glaive also served a second (and more fun) purpose. It can be used to pole vault on top of a monster and ride him into temporary submission.

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...

Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f...

That expensive, gold Monster Hunter statue? Doesn't have a lil dick!

Last month, we brought you an investigative, penetrative look at this $29,000 gold Monster Hunter statue. Particularly, "does it...does it have a lil dick?" we asked. It wasn't immediately clear. All the photos prov...

3DS, Wii U Capcom games on sale

A bunch of Capcom eShop 3DS and Wii U games are on sale until the morning of September 4.  Writing about Capcom just makes me want to replay every Clover game and Resident Evil 4. At least Mega Fans are getting good Mega Man alternates.
