Some New News

Capcom has now said that about a month after Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate releases, they will patch in the ability for US players to play with EU players.  That's awesome, and frankly, should have been there in the first place.  Now I can walk both Marcus Shadow and Chriz the Mole through the game....oh, joy.  It's also funny that Japanese players can still only play with Japanese players.  Capcom Japan basically stated a year or so ago that they don't want Japanese players playing with other people.  I guess they just want to keep the illusion that Japanese players are a lot better than others.  It's not true, so you wouldn't want to shatter that bubble I suppose.  Oh well, at least it's a step in the right direction.

Also, Focus Interactive and Spiders are close to releasing their new action RPG Mars War Logs for XBLA, PSN and PC.  They also released a new trailer showing the combat, and it's surely I game I want to try.  I'm hoping to review that, so keep an eye out for that.  In addition, they announced a new, full release game called Bound by Flame.  Another action RPG, this time a more fantasy setting (Mars War Logs is futuristic, obviously).  Again, sounds pretty good to me, so I'm adding that to my radar.  I really like player action RPGs, so here's hoping they are both lots of fun!

I have a new review coming in a few days, but here is something to tide you over.  It's not game related, but my wife and I saw some more movies on Netflix recently.  Tales of an Ancient Empire with Kevin Sorbo and Against the Dark with Steven Seagal.  Don't see them, either of them.  They are bad.  Against the Dark is a little better, but seriously, avoid both of them.  Now, back to invading all those territories...
