Excited about Monster Hunter 4? Since I'm typing this in English, I'm guessing that your answer is probably "no". Excited about a game where you run across huge fields, platform across ancient ruins, escape the wrath of a bloodthirsty hippo-sized dino-dragon, only to climb a cliff wall to be faced with an even larger fire breathing bat-winged lizard, with your survival dependent on your ability to turn the two angry reptiles against each other? Then maybe you'll end up loving Monster Hunter 4 after all.
Personally, my favorite part is when the hunter jumps on the pursuing beast's back, grabs on with one hand, and furiously stabs into its spine with the other. The whole show is very Shadows of the Colossus. That's rarely a bad thing.
This game has only been announced for the 3DS so far, and honestly, I don't imagine that Capcom will spend the additional funds to make it look any better if it does come to other consoles. Frankly, they just don't have to. The game will sell exceptionally well no matter how it looks.
For better or worse, I think this is our Monster Hunter 4. Personally, I can't wait to play it (single nub style because F*ck that Nubageddon sh*t homey).
