Let the Hunt Begin Monster Hunter World Review By Luiggi Cavanna

This game is like Dark Souls meets.. WAIT! where are you going? I was just joking don’t go!! I’m sorry but I had to make the joke, come on. To be fair there’s a lot people that are new to this franchise that might make that comparison but don’t just go get your hunting horn and try to squash them just yet. This is good, we have new people interested in this game and that was the goal that Capcom had in mind. This game made so many drastic changes from previous sequels to attract more people in the western market and at the same time kept most of the formula that made Monster Hunter the game that it is. Monster Hunter is back giving us a perfect balance between old and new that honestly (spoiler alert for the rest of the review) seems perfect to me.

Welcome to Monster Hunter World!!

I have to say, Monster Hunter World is a breath of fresh air for the franchise. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Monster Hunter, but it was in serious need for an update to some of the mechanics and is also nice to see Monster Hunter back to home consoles again and not just been trapped in the 3DS.

Also finally seeing the monsters in high definition in a big screen is really imposing

For those that do not know and are new to the franchise, Monster Hunter is an action RPG that focus primarily in the grinding aspects of the genre. You go out and fight monsters, carve them for parts and materials, build armor and weapons out of said parts and materials, and go out hunting again for better parts. Your progression is tied in to this system, you do not level, nor does your character get stronger, you just get better equipment. That does not mean that you’re going to be the same by the end of the game though, your character might not level but you do. Monster Hunter World is a game that rewards skill play, and by the end game all the experience that you’ve acquired through your playthrough will pay off.

I mean, LOOK at this “Attack on Titan” shenanigans!! It’s amazing!

Also I have to add that there’s no classes but instead you can choose between fourteen different weapon types and you can switch them at any time in your main hub or in camp while you’re on a mission. There’s no “better weapon” in the game, they just provide different play styles for everyone. The weapons had some changes made to them that has giving us a more dynamic game play. In the last game in the series we had different styles for each weapons and super attacks, but to be honest it just felt like they were running out of ideas and it felt gimmicky, just like the option of playing as your Palico (The cat companion that helps you when you’re hunting solo). Those mechanics are gone and to be honest I don’t miss them.

By the way, Palicos are AWESOME! And you can customize them just like your hunter

Monster Hunter World is an amazing game and  a long awaited update to the monster hunter formula. If you haven’t play any monster hunter games in the past and you are apprehensive in getting into this franchise, don’t worry! This game was designed to bring new people to the franchise and it is also a great addition to it. So if you’re new or a veteran hunter, it doesn’t matter this game is great and I don’t see any reason to pass this one over, except if you’re not into "grindy" games because as I said at the beginning, you hunt, carve, make equipment, repeat.

As a Monster Hunter veteran, I enjoy how gathering has been streamline. You can gather most things while moving, and you don’t have to load sections of the map. In previous games the map will be divided in instances that you had to load separately. Now the whole map loads instantly and that gives the world this feeling of being alive. Also another thing that helps with that feeling is the fact that monsters interact with each other and have territorial battles. I totally recommend this game and with the returning tradition of free DLC, the life of the game seems bright. So have you played Monster Hunter World? What do you think of the changes? Let us know. Now I return to the deepest darkest corners of my dwelling. Good-bye for now my friends.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.

1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
