Gosh, it was so hard to get more than a boring Goku on Vegeta still out of the new Arc System Works 3DS fighter for months. Then there was the meaty 8 minutes and cheese head lady. And now here's another commercial. Makes sense. It comes o...   read

Monster Hunter X looks to make the action fun for everyone

The Monster Hunter series remains huge in Japan, but it's still more of a cult hit everywhere else. The combat system probably has a lot to do with that. On the surface, it's pretty disempowering. Players are likely to feel punished and ab...   read
