Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Will Live Up To Its Name

Posted on October 2, 2012 by Seung Lee

While Capcom’s Monster Hunter games have always been praised more for their gameplay, rather than their graphics, it seems as though that’ll change for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. MH3U will apparently be running in 1080p and supporting 5.1 channel sound, which is actually revolutionary for the series.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is set to release on the Wii U and 3DS, sometime in March next year. The Wii U version will include online play via Nintendo Network servers, but the 3DS won’t. Check out Tale Tale Source for the source, if you can read Japanese.

I haven’t seen a list this long of patches since Obsidian Ent. patched up Fallout: New Vegas. While there is no official release date on this, Bioware has stated that its tentative date is this Thursday. So I guess we will know when we pop in Mass Effect 3 and see the update huh?

The list, as I stated before, is very long. So check after the jump for the list.

Tomb Raider | FINAL HOURS EPISODE 2: Origins of a Story

Posted on October 2, 2012 by Jesse Lord

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have released the second FINAL HOURS Episode, titled Origins of a Story, today.  This video series focuses on Tomb Raider and it gives a behind-the-curtain look at the different game development processes and procedures as they get closer and closer to retail release.  This episode specifically focuses on character design and creation.  It features never-before-seen footage from the game, it is hosted at San Diego Comic-Con’s Nerd HQ by none other than the nerd-cred-certified Zachary Levi.  It features lead writer Rhianna Pratchett, narrative designer John Stafford, and creative director Noah Hughes.  They all speak about the heavy pressures that come from taking an already-iconic and fan-favorite character like Lara Croft and giving her a new look, feel and story.  There’s much more to be found in the video, but I will leave you all to it.

The worst thing about this is the fact that I’m not already playing this game.  What say you, internets?
