A lot of my time these passed few weeks (awaiting November’s haul) was spent on Monster Hunter Freedom Unite – which I picked up for a cool twelve dollars. I must say I can imagine why Japan would go so nuts over this game. I stress “imagine” because I can’t for the life of me play the real meat of the game that is multiplayer. I’ve spent hours on several days trying to connect to a match via Ad-Hoc Party, but with no luck. It makes me wonder why Capcom decided to make Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii, rather than a console with feasible online play. Until I see it on the HD consoles, I doubt I’ll ever experience the true Monster Hunter.
• Played some GoW2 Horde with a friend... now I need to get Gears 3.
• I have only played an hour of Uncharted 3 so far. Great opening. Not as good as UC2’s but who really thought that opening would be outdone?
• Finished Twilight Princess a week ago. It’s an amazing game, but I can already tell it is not a very memorable one. It needed an identity separate from Ocarina like the other 3D Zeldas.
