As someone, who has never found much interest in the Monster Hunter Series, I was happy to jump into this new game. Monster Hunter Stories introduces a new side to this world that has been in hiding in a way, and helps change things up. This game, the game follows a young rider, someone who tames monsters rather than strictly hunting them, which makes this game more akin to a Pokemon game, and therefore right up my my alley.

The story revolves around the hero traveling the world to snuff out an ancient evil that is rearing its ugly head. A plant that can cause monsters to rampage is back and warping the world and needs to be stopped. Along the way, many interesting things happen and you will meet a good bunch of insane characters. For me, it is really good that there is actually a story, as from what I know, monster hunter games are usually devoid of such a thing.

In Monster Hunter Stories you assemble a team of monsters or Monsties as they are called. There are about 200 to choose from so you have quite a good group to gather, that of course have their own skills, and abilities that long time fans should know at least. To gather monsters you must steal eggs, and the only way you can do so is to head into nests. These nests are randomly generated so the only thing you will really know is what kind of monsters you might fight.

Sneaking in, you often come across a monster, who if you wake up or you scared back its nest will be angry.  Anger is a great power up for monsters, as why would they not be upset that some small human can actually defeat them? After this, you get to pick up eggs, and Navirou, your Felyne pal, will tell you a few hints about your egg. It is quite fun, as there are many patterns, and you don’t always know what kind of monster you will get. The fighting system is based on a sort of Rock Paper Scissors game, though you do need to figure out patterns, as if you successfully do, you will inflict more damage. There are special attacks and even combo attacks, the latter done through riding your monster in battle, that are amazing.

Monster Hunter Stories truly is a game unlike any Monster Hunter game before it. A true RPG, where the world is your oyster. With so many quests to complete, weapons to buy, and monsters to hatch, you won’t be putting this game down anytime soon. Plus, it really is a good first monster hunter game. Playing this will allow anyone to jump in and get a taste for what the true games are. But, this game also has all the intricacy of that game, albeit in a far more cartoonish form.

Monster Hunter Stories is certainly a game, that I am enjoying and I cannot wait to see how it ends. You can get Monster Hunter Stories right now on the 3DS Family of Systems!

No GravatarEver Oasis was announced last year at E3 2016 for 3DS. While it has taken awhile the game is finally coming on the 23rd of this year. After a stellar showing of the game at E3 this year we were given a demo to try out before the game’s launch.

Ever Oasis is a beautiful game and is created so wonderfully for the 3DS family of systems. This game involves a young hero named Tethu teaming up with a water spirit named Esna. These two heroes work together to not only stop evil but to revitalize an Oasis.

This game is fun because you not only can grow and replenish an oasis but you get to meet great characters while doing it. There are also dungeons to travel through and many are randomized.

This demo took a little bit of each part of the gameplay to deliver a nice trial. The demo starts with a bit of story and then thrusts you into the life of the main character Tethu.

While exploring this world different villagers will come to visit and ask you to complete quests. In my time playing the demo I was tasked to find a certain amount of an item for a small character, the same race as Tethu.

I was soon approached by a lizard-like character who wanted to join me on my quest. Running through the desert we took down monsters. Finding the cactus pulp we brought it back and she was appeased.

We weren’t done yet and soon ended up in a dungeon, where a third character joined us. My trio worked together to take down foes and then a boss of sorts. There was even something that was not accessible because we didn’t have a shovel.

Heading back having done all this new villager wanted, she professed that she wanted to set up shop in my oasis. Of course, you need to say yes as who doesn’t want a juice shop. It was also revealed that she, in fact, is a master with a shovel.

All in all this demo got me even more excited for this game. You not only get to heal up a horrid desert but you also get to battle enemies and travel through puzzle-filled dungeons.

The characters are well designed and all have their own powers and attitudes. If you haven’t played this demo yet, try it out, the Oasis needs help and you are the only one who can help Tethu and Esna save it!

Ever Oasis comes out on June 23rd for the 3DS Family of Systems!

No GravatarNintendo has announced that North America’s standard 2DS systems will be receiving a small makeover which will be available this November.

The new handhelds which normally have a black front with red or blue on the sides, will now host red or blue on the front and black on the sides.

According to sources inside Nintendo, this fiasco happened after Mario left the 2DS factory in the hands of Luigi for the day. Camera security is apparently strict in the building as they have footage of what began the whole gaffe, which you can see below. Though do not tell Mario it was Luigi that messed it up, as he is under the impression that it was done on purpose and approved it once he got back.

The one area that was not touched was price. The new colored Nintendo 2DS will still be priced at $79.99 and will have the Mario Kart 7 game pre-installed in specially marked boxes.

NINTENDO 2DS SYSTEM DROPS TO NEW LOW SUGGESTED PRICE OF $109.99

Nintendo Also Announces Two New Games for Young Gamers: 

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward and Disney Magical World 2

VANCOUVER, B.C., July 12, 2016 – The entry point to Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS games and franchises has never been more affordable. On July 15, Nintendo will lower the price of its kid-friendly portable Nintendo 2DS system to a suggested retail price of $109.99, a great saving from the previous suggested retail price of $129.99. Most systems even come pre-installed with one of two great games from the universally popular Mario Kart 7 racing game to the mischievous YO-KAI WATCH adventure game, making the new value price even more appealing for parents who are looking for an entry-level gaming system for their young gamers.

Plus, for those caught up in Pokémon Go fever, the Nintendo 2DS plays all the best Pokémon games from the last 20 years – from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition originals to the future-classics Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, out November 18th.

Nintendo 2DS launched in October 2013 and is part of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The system comes with fun built-in entertainment options and applications to take photos and videos, plus wireless access to Nintendo eShop for those with Internet access. The unique design is built to make it easy for smaller hands to hold. The system includes two screens (including a touch screen) and plays Nintendo 3DS games, plus nearly all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games in 2D. For details about Nintendo 2DS, visit http://www.nintendo.com/en_CA/2ds.

“Nintendo 2DS is the best value available for a portable dedicated gaming system and is great for gaming on the go,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “The system has a library full of high-quality games for purchase, some in our Nintendo Selects category for less than $30 each, featuring Mario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Zelda.”

Kids can check out the latest game in the Kirby series, Kirby: Planet Robobot, as well as two new kid-friendly games coming later this year: Style Savvy: Fashion Forward and Disney Magical World 2.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, the third game in the Style Savvy series, gives players a sense of accomplishment by putting them in charge of one of five exciting professions. Players can immerse themselves in a world of fashion by owning a boutique, designing clothes, styling hair, applying makeup or becoming a model. When players make themselves look good, customers who visit their boutiques might start adopting the player’s style. The game includes over 19,000 different articles of clothing, items and accessories to choose from. Players can also learn real-world fashion tips from the Fashion 101 guide. To access Nintendo character-themed clothing and accessories in the game, players can tap select amiibo figures to a Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system using the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory to trigger an event. Once the event is completed, players can get the special items. The amiibo and Reader/Writer accessory are sold separately. The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems feature a built-in NFC reader for amiibo. Style Savvy: Fashion Forward launches Aug. 19 at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Disney Magical World2, the follow up to the popular franchise, lets players enjoy a variety of new adventures in six Disney-themed worlds, such as exploring the world of DisneyFrozen, dancing with Disney princesses or soaring through special Magical Dream events. Players will encounter and interact with well-known characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Ariel, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. The game launches Oct. 14 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

In the meantime, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has a library of great exclusive games for every type of player, including New Super Mario Bros. 2, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Some of Nintendo’s other big hits in the Nintendo Selects category are also available for a suggested retail price of only $29.99 each. The Nintendo Selects line includes great games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Party: Island Tour and Yoshi’s New Island.

As always, Club Nintendo has some pretty sweet deals, but the one they’re offering for the month of March couldn’t get any better. Nintendo consumers that register a 2DS, 3DS, or 3DS XL system between March 1st and March 31st, and also register a select Nintendo 3DS title will get a Pokemon X/Y download code for free. Yep, you read that right, for free.

The qualifying games for the offer to be valid are as follows:

  • Yoshi’s New Island
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Mario 3D Land

  I’ve got to say, this is probably one of the best deal from Club Nintendo in a while. If I didn’t already have my hands on both a 3DS XL and Pokemon X, it would most definitely persuade me to go out and buy one AND one of the qualifying titles listed. What do you think of the March deal on Club Nintendo?
