Last Ranker Review

Right, British slang joke aside…

In the story of Last Ranker written by Kazushige Nojima (FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, Kingdom Hearts etc.), Zig is tired of following the seemingly pointless traditions in his home town of Gantala. Seeing no future in staying there, he decides to leave and enrol in the city’s “Rankers”, an organisation established to train strong warriors. There, he vows on the same day as a daughter of royal lineage, Ren who becomes his rival. Coincidentally, the top ranking Seven Knights are missing a member. As Zig battles his way to the top, he begins to wonder if it was the right choice when he finds it is full of corruption and only the strong, high ranking survive.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd PSP Coming End of 2010 | モンスターハンターポータブル3rd 2010年末で発売 | Monster Hunter Portable 3 PSP版2010年未出

Now that Monster Hunter Tri has been out for the Wii long enough to reach the West, Capcom reveals the third PSP game will be coming out sometime towards the end of this year 2010.

It looks as if it won’t be simply a port of the Wii version either…

  • The home town of “Yukumo” has a greater Far East atmosphere (mostly Japanese).
  • You can now take two Felynes with you in single player mode.
  • There’s a new monster resembling a bear.
  • New environments.

Seems Capcom’s Group CEO, Kazuo Hirai’s 16 year old son is quite a fan of the game too and has been asking him when a new game was going to come out!

Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition | モンスターハンター モンスター占い | 魔物獵人幫您占卦

Want to mix in a little of the fun from games into your horoscopes instead of looking at the same old illustrations all the time?

Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition is written by fortune teller Getters Iida in collaboration with Capcom and aims to foretell your fortune between April 2010 and March 2011. Apparently by deciding which of the 48 monsters you are by looking at your starsign, blood type it can tell your personality, the way you play Monster Hunter and your fortune in areas such as love, career and compatibility with others.

This year’s issue also lets you find out which monster your hunter friend could be too.

Wonder which monster I am? I know! I’ll be the slimy, electrifying and blood sucking Giginebula from MH3!

モンハン占いって・・・僕のモンスターはどんなのかな?ギギネブラのようなぬるぬるで吸血のようなも悪くないね(笑)

用你的血型和星座可知道你在魔物獵人占卦(Monster Hunter)的48種魔物之中是哪一雙魔物座而後占你今年的運情。

我的魔物座會是什麼?發電和吸血的Giginebula也不錯(笑)

Monster Hunter 3 Review

Monster Hunter never had much of a storyline but in the latest title for the Wii, “Monster Hunter Tri (3)” tells of how you arrive at the village of Moga as a hunter, a small village situated between the sea and dense forests. Lately, they’ve been having a lot of earthquakes and think the great sea monster Ragiakuls is responsible.

Gameplay

You start off the game very much like any Monster Hunter game by creating your character. Once that’s ready, you’re forced to run through a a few short tutorial quests which I’m not too much of a fan of but in this case, I think it’s fair enough since it’s the new Wii controls. While you can wag the Wiimote about to attack, you’ll be glad to know you can use the buttons to attack and dodge too I’m sure.

The downside about using the Wiimote and nunchuk combo is that you have to slide your hand down to the ‘1’ button to use items and that can be pretty slow in the mist of the hectic battles. It probably would have been better if they let you hold Z and press the up or down button on the d-pad instead. You can also end up swinging your weapon by mistake but fortunately you can turn the Wiimote motion sensor completely off.

Street Fighter IV PC Version

I first played Street Fighter at the arcades for 50p a shot and it didn’t last very long ^^;

Then I went onto playing the first game on the Famicom followed by SFII Turbo on the SNES at a friend’s place. Great that I can play online for as much as I want now with Street Fighter IV.

If anyone’s up for a match, drop me a message, my tag is “Xcompu” (someone took my handle name already). I usually pop on in the evenings British Summer Time (BST).
