Diablo III 2.0 — First Impressions

I’ve mentioned it before, but Diablo II is probably my favorite game of all time.  I was incredibly excited when I heard Diablo III was announced.  Even though I’ve played over 150 hours, D3 just didn’t quite have that old D2 feel.  With the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion dropping in four weeks, Blizzard has put out patch 2.0.1, implementing […]

I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before (or written anything for a blog, so be nice), but from what I know they completely dominate in Japan.  I saw the newest 3DS version and figured I’d give it a go.  I’m still doing some of the introductory stuff, but I’ve played for a few hours. First, I’ll go with the […]
