MH4U 1

Though Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was released in Japan in 2013 while the English version only just recently; it still one of the best seller and a game where many would love to grab with their clean hands.

As for me?

Since I got 2 clean hands, of course I grabbed 2 of the game; one for myself and another for my sister so we can play multi-player together.

MH4U 2

Many new concert were acted since I last played Monster Hunter 3, and while this time you get to eat delicious meal to increase your health and stamina, or gaining new buffs for your battle, I still miss the good old hot spring.

I do love to be clean.

Anyways they decided to add in 2 more new weapons for combat; a weapon where you control one flying insect, and a weapon which change from a Sword and Shield back and front to an Axe.

MH4U 3

Pretty cool to control one bug to fight for you while now there is one more additional of weapon-change-type class.

I still prefer to use the good old, Lance, Dual Sword and Bow as my weapons.

So of course I do like to grind on the same monster over and over and over again just to grab hold of the necessary materials to craft those weapons / armors.

Yes, the game do not have level, but depend on the armors and weapons you get from crafting from monsters and gathering of ‘natural’ materials.

MH4U 4

Interesting, while this time you can climb the mountain or even mount on the giant monster, the developers decided to give the game a realistic environment feel (and yes, the texture still good pretty much like the previous version).

So you can jump off a cliff and try to land on top of the huge monster to attack it on it back, which can be their weak point.

Seem like many hunters are ready for some Rodeo action; so careful and try not to get push off the monster back.

MH4U 5

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate also add in new monsters though they remove a few older monsters; don’t be sad, most of the popular are in this game since this version not only have many base camps, but a total of 98 monster. (I wish they add in 2 more to make it a hundred)

Also this game make good use of the new Nintendo console where you can control the camera more freely and easily, but doesn’t mean you need to waste your money to grab them just to play this only.

The control pad still able to slowly control the camera with some practices.

With many NPCs, monsters, weapons and plot to unlock, how can I not decided to grab hold of this game?

While I just started out not too long ago, tell me if you wish to hunt some monster with me by commenting below, and share this post if you felt you want your friends to play MH4U too.

For 12 Years of waiting, since last I had played Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald numerous times to the point that I was hoping for a nice remakes by the Pokemon Company and Game Freak. When previously Pokemon X and Y was released, there were many interesting hints about a remake on Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire.

When Pokemon X and Y change it game to a 3-D style, the one thing that many were looking forward was how will they remake Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, imagining it to be in 3-D as well as getting to enjoy the games that was one of my favor.

hoenn_region_map

Of course I did pre-order the game, as like in the past where I started with Ruby, this time I will be starting Omega Ruby Version. The Sapphire belong to my younger sister even though I help on completing most of the story and stuffs while she just choose and train her favor Pokemon.

Emerald belong to me though I had played this version the most of the three, and due to the game, I was really looking forward to the remakes.

battle 3ds

They have brought back Secret bases and Pokemon Contest, as well as importing the 3-D of Pokemon X and Y, and some of it features which is now the upgraded PokeNav. Interesting to note about the PokeDex this time is based on the old Game Boy Advance Console design, which really bring me back when I was holding it on my hands and I was playing the game till I get silly.

Another thing to note is the Mega Evolution with even more Pokemon able to get into their mega forms, but the most interesting thing to note is how Slowbro and Beedrill managed to get into the list themselves.

start 3ds

Pikachu get to cosplay with nice clothes which will affect some of his skill moves, but what I like is that this time, they give Pikachu the actual clothes to wear and battle. I wonder if this will be expanded in future if they letting Pokemon to wear some nice accessory before battle.

As Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire got it fixed characters, Brendan and May; the players can only get to choose either Boy or Girl where they are unable to customize the character unlike Pokemon X and Y.

kyogue 3ds

Also when they say remake, of course most characters are going to have some reformed one way or another, and that including the bad guys, Team Aqua and Team Magma. Well the story is still somehow same as the older version Ruby and Sapphire, they have change a few style and the story to suit it more for the current new remakes.

Though it seem that you can’t get to ride on Pokemon for this version, that do not mean they did not let you stop riding on Pokemon; you can surf and diva with Kyogue which seem to dominate the sea or even Sharpedo which move at twice the normal speed when surfing.

fly

You can even ride on Latios or Latias and fly around the Hoenn Region, and even have encounter while flying up in the sky. Talk about riding on lands, now I prefer the sky and the sea.

Horde Encounter has taken up another level, when previous Pokemon X and Y offer to fight against five wild Pokemon, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire add in a Horde of Trainers, so it best to plan ahead, otherwise you will get taken out by them easily.

surf

As a whole, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire not only hit the expectation of mine with the remakes, but the introduce of features from Pokemon X and Y was able to make it one best remakes I have ever seen, even making me to stop whatever I doing at the moment and to play the game, beat the Pokemon Champion and completed most of the story.

So have you started your Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire yet?

Miku Project Diva F 2 2

One of the longest game I have ever played since it first launch on Play Station Portable, and also one of the reason why I started to like Hatsune Miku and the other Vocaloids.

Yes, I did grabbed Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd for my Play Station Vita, though the previous version I grabbed for my Play Station 3.

Miku Project Diva F 2 3

A lyrics game where you need to time properly and make the hit.

But honesty saying, I very lousy in this type of game, since I tend to get a normal standard score, or even fail. I just got lost listening to the music instead.

Miku Project Diva F 2 4

Well, maybe my reaction time fail or that I not that used to holding a Vita due to the small little buttons.

But even so, once clear, you get to enjoy another song, and you can just choose to listen those song and watch the PV of them.

Miku Project Diva F 2 5

Also you get to interact with the Vocaloids, from patting their head to playing Rock-Paper-Scissor with them.

It best to get their “Love Meter” up, and sometime you can just watch how they move around, or doing their own stuffs like reading a magazine or dancing.

Miku Project Diva F 2 6

Another interesting part is that you get to change their costume, once you clear some songs, and buying them at the shop.

The shop also offer other stuffs like hat to wear, or even food for the Vocaloid to eat. I always wonder how can they live without eating (=w= ||)

It depend on what you want to give them to eat, from orange juice to ramen.

Miku Project Diva F 2 7

Also you get take some photo with them, or you just picture them in a pose and you take them real life. It also seem that you can use the PS AR cards on top of it.

Also the game got an online feature, and there are a few download contents available too.

Miku Project Diva F 2 8

On top of those, you can also create your own dance move for the Vocaloids too, like playing drums and guitar, or just dancing around.

If you like, you may also create a music game of your own and upload it, as it seem for the online feature. Well, it best to beat them and get a high scores.

Miku Project Diva F 2 9

Well, I still prefer to train my reaction time and getting a excellent score on the game. Though there a few favor song that I prefer, and at the same time training to perfect the score.

Maybe I can take some time to relax and interact with the Vocaloid and enjoy myself instead. And maybe smiling silly to myself (=w= ||)

Miku Project Diva F 2 10

I almost forgot.. they do have nice loading screen which you can consider getting for your PS Vita.

I really amazed at those nice arts that I got a hard time deciding which to use.

Miku Project Diva F 2 11

Well, there are so many different PS Vita games to play, but at times I do play this nice game just to listen to those nice music and maybe train a bit on my reaction time.

So, do you also play Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd too?

SAOHF 1

Imagine if Kirito defeated Heathcliff, but the game did not log everyone out, and they decided to go on to the higher floor level.

Well,  Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment is based on that situation, and somehow, Kirito ended up on a place known as Hollow Area, where only he can enter though he come across another player, Phillia.

SAOHF 2

The interesting part about this game is based on a “What if”, and even with that, Kirito can get along with the female characters in this game.

Meaning you can change his name to a name you want, change his look or hairstyle, and even use a weapon of your choice instead of dual wielding. So if you prefer Leafra or Sinon, you can go along with them.

SAOHF 3

The game however do auto-save unlike normal saving which normal happen when you go to the next map or area.

And of course… You can’t log out.

The funny part is how the time move faster in the game than I expected, and there is indeed Day and Night in the game, so you get to experience the sky from bright to dark and then back to bright again.

SAOHF 4

Also try not to die in this game, cos it will just write as your dead, and restart to where you previously saved.

Like the normal way to clear the game, you do need to go up higher level of the normal map, and at the same time you can hollow mission and quest at the hollow area.

SAOHF 5

Well, it isn’t easy to train the level of Kirito but for unknown reason, the other characters are easier to level up, which help a lot more than I expected.

The main point in this game which I think would be as you clear the level of the game floor, you need to explore the hollow area too.

You can explore the hollow area in a multiplayer mode, and helping each other to level up, or clear some places.

SAOHF 6

Well, I do like to fight those boss at the hollow area, but getting misses sure can get me frustrated more than I expected.

Even so, personally, I like the fighting where you use whatever skill or weapon or style to play this game.

But at the same time, knowing that better equip mean better killing those monster away.

SAOHF 7

Well, I still trying to play this game and slowly clear, though I wonder if I got the time to sit down and relax. Also there is another SAO game coming soon, which I will look forward too.

So do you also play Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment?
