Let this Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate trailer serve as your pre-hunt briefing

It sure feels like we're saying this a lot lately, but hunting season's upon us. This time, it's the enormous beasts of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate that need to be slain. We're not shooting for "tranq and peacefully reloc...

The Unova starter giveaway is live in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

The codes for Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are now all redeemable. Just head into the Mystery Gift option and choose "receive via code," then type in POKEMON497, POKEMON500, and POKEMON503, respectively.

These Pokémon are packing hidden abilities (Contrary, Reckless, and Shell Armor), so it's worth setting aside a couple of minutes to nab them before leaving 'em inside a box, unloved.

When this distribution event was announced, I asked which of the three monsters was best, and things got weird. I expect that to happen in all Pokémon posts these days. Or all posts, really.

Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate photo
Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
by Patrick Hancock

Ah, Monster Hunter. A game that ends up being more of a culture than anything else. These have always been games about community and self-improvement. Getting better isn't measured in some arbitrary number, but how well you can execute your talents. It also helps that as you get better your gear becomes increasingly more badass.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate doesn't tamper with the classic formula too much, but the additions here are certainly nothing to ignore. New weapons, new mechanics, and an incredible amount of monsters makes Ultimate more than just the "same old thing."
