Destiny! Destiny!

There is no escape for me!   Anyway, I caved and bought a next-gen console (in addition to the Wii-U -.-). Usually, I need a critical mass of games I really want before I’ll splurge on a console, and I never got there with the PS3. So far, though, must haves on the PS4 for …

A New World

So, with the demise of my previous Dwarf Fortress due to an unexpected flooding and all the carp-related issues that brings, it’s time to generate a new world to try out all the shiny new weirdnesses that 0.40 brings. Here’s the world in question. Wish me luck – I’m going to have “fun”.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS)

So, today’s lunchtime was spent ganking a Gobul. Which sounds a little rude. But it wasn’t. It basically involved swimming around a lot and stabbing it in the face even more. I’m finding the underwater combat really fun and satisfying – more so than in any other version. Mostly because of the ‘monster lock’ function. …

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U)

50 minute quest with one objective. Kill a Qurupecu. 49 minutes later, I limp back to the village with no health, no potions, no whetstones, and proudly carrying a bunch of feathers. Chased the damn thing round the map for AGES. I suspect I need to upgrade my dual-blades…

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii-U)

I’m going on a bear hunt! I’m looking for a scary one! As the song goes. Well, I certainly did find a scary one – he’s an Arzuros and his picture is down the bottom there. For this quest, I had to weaken him to a point where the tranquiliser would be effective. This involved …

Wii-U

Worst. Setup. Ever. Tonight consisted of: 1. Putting the hardware together, cabling up etc. 2. Wrestling with the networking for the best part of an hour to get it to connect. In the end – I took all the spaces out of the SSID, did a manual setup and used static IP addressing and Google’s …

State of the Gaming Nation (in my house)

So, I’ve not really been doing much gaming for the last year or two. Just fiddling with a few titles here and there. It’s a bit of a recurring ennui, really. I can pin-point pretty much where this lengthy slump came from. It pretty much coincides with the end of the Gamecube era and the …

Monster Hunter 3 ultimate (3DS)

So, a one-star mission. Hunt some beasties, get their guts. 50 minutes to do it. Dead easy, I thought. As it’s an easy one, I thought I’d hunt the aquatic beasties, on the basis that it would give me a bit of practice with the (perfectly adequate) controls. And it was all going fine until …

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS)

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate box art

It appears dem monsters need hunting once again. I was a bit suspicious of how this would play, particularly with regards the camera, but as it happens it controls beautifully and doesn’t require The Claw Of Death like the PSP version did. So, it’s Monster Hunter – you know how it works. There’s Monsters. And …

God(s) Eater Burst (PSP)

Okay, so there seems to be some confusion about the title of this game. Sometimes GOD eater, sometimes GODS. Who knows what it actually is. In game, the team you work with are known as GOD eaters so we’ll go with that one. Regardless, the premise is simple. You kill ridiculously large monsters with ridiculously …
