Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

    Welcome class, I am prof. Wulfang and I will be teaching you all today about MHF.  Take out some paper, and a pen or pencil and prepare to take notes.  First, as you place the UMD into the PSP and you start to play, the first thing you may notice is the warning notice.  Excessive blood?  Hoorah!  I'm liking this game already!

    Ok, so now we are at the menu.  Is everyone taking good notes?  Theres a pop quiz at the end.  Keep skipping over these important facts and I'll turn it into a pop exam, you little turds.  Ok.  The loading screens aren't exactly saying "Fear us monsters".  In fact, without knowing the game, you'd be under the impression that it is a puzzle game.  Plus, the loading times can be long and tedious, but what game now isn't.  Oh, wait...

    Character customization is great.  Choosing from male/female, face, skin color, hair, hair color, voices, and then weapons and armor.  The weapons include the basic sword and shield, the Great sword, the Lance, Hammer, Bowgun, and the ever mysterious but pretty useless until end of game.... Dual Swords!  Everyone I know started off with the Great Sword, but as you continue you will see that S&S and Lance are probably the best weapons.  Once you get REALLY far and get great armor, DS might be the better choice.

    Creating items is pretty fun.  except for the getting the items part.  New outfits, choosing from all different armors, all different stats and colors and some make you look bad ass while others make you feel like you like at McDonalds.  Oh!  The fighting, I almost forgot... Ok, here it is!  The FIGHTING!!! (thats 3x the ! for dramatic effect).  You fight monsters, duh, but the fighting has some very interesting things about it.  Each enemy fights differently, has different weakness's and in the end, requires a lot of strategy to take down some of the bosses.  Very solid.

    MULTIPLAYER!!!!!  See?  More dramatic effect!  No infrastructure in this one, but you do have adhoc.  Get a team of 4, and send your hunters out on a mission.  Keep in mind, you will need a leader, and a good strategy.  You wouldn't believe how many times I'm fighting DS and then a friend has a great sword, swings, and hits me off my feet.  Thankfully, you can't hurt each other.  Just annoy.  Then the bowgun man kept rushing and gettimg himself killed.  Then theres the one guy who doesn't know where the battle is, so hes running around and looking in piles of monster turds for items.

    So, in the end you got: swords, blood, talking cats that cook, white jamaicans (I had to google that word to see if I spelt it right), old ladies with 4 ton backpacks, odd and useful items, and giant dragons that like to act like chickens at times.  There are even cats that will steal your items.

+ Solid customization
+ Solid Weapons and armor
+ Great fights
+ Multiplayer Adhoc
- no Infrastructure
+ long hours of play!
+ Great Replay value
- man, Kitty steal my bike! er.. My potion!
