Monster Hunter Stories Amiibo Line Revealed

Monster Hunter Stories Amiibo Line Revealed

Monster Hunter Stories, the spin off from the main series, is getting its own set of Amiibo. The cutesy looking version of the brilliant Capcom series is coming to Nintendo systems in the future, resulting in some rather nice looking Amiibo. There’s only three in the set, at least for now.  As of yet, the three Amiibo have only been confirmed for sale in Japan (starting this December). It would be disappointing if they never made it to Europe. Monster Hunter Stories has no UK release date…hopefully that changes in the coming future. It’ll be interesting to see well Monster Hunter translates to a turn based RPG.  ...

Even today the lighting system still impresses. The only catch is you need to be part of the Ubisoft Club to take advantage of the offer.

Is Evolve Going Free-To-Play? *Updated* Officially Confirmed as Free-To-Play

More Of The Same, Just With Easy Loot – The Division’s Underground Expansion Review

Ubisoft’s The Division has been all over the shop since its initial release last year. Continued experimenting with ways to improve the game has produced mixed results.

Each area hosts a set of core games, all of which still require masses amount of shooting. There’s a fair level of challenge at play, even on the basic setting. With...
