A new Monster Hunter game is out this week on Switch and PC. What is Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin? I have no idea. But it’s out this week!

I’m almost positive I’ve written these words before, but here we go (again). I’d like to get into Monster Hunter, it looks cool and fun. People seem to enjoy it a lot and I know folks who have a blast playing it. But I’ve tried like three times now to play a Monster Hunter game and I bounce off them so fast it gives me whiplash. So I will continue to sit on the sidelines, watching, taking some notes and trying to wrap my head around all this MonHun stuff.

I watched a little bit of footage of Swords of Legends Online and, at least graphically, it looks pretty cool. I assume it will not be good, but I like the aesthetic.

This is completely unrelated, but the Dynasty Warriors movie came to Netflix on Thursday and it is a wild ride. Easily my favorite video game movie, and left open to continue the story (maybe by ending a bit too abruptly). It will probably not review well, but it’s a fucking blast. Check it out.
