Nothing for me this week. Still going through Persona 5 so I really do not want to pick up another game that will take hours upon hours to play.

Monster Hunter comes with Horizon Zero Dawn content?! That's cool... Maybe you hunt one of the bigger boss robots?!

You can get Aloy's hair, armor and bow and the Palico can wear a costume to make them look like a Watcher from Horizon: Zero Dawn.



To be honest, this looks pretty bad ass. Almost want to buy the game just for this crossover alone. It is just as badd ass as Kat being able to wear 2B's outfit in Gravity Rush 2.

It's a hectic week for me: Both Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter are day one for me.

I can justify it because I haven't bought a new game in a good little while and these two should keep me occupied for quite some time.

Zero Gunner 2 is being released on the Switch eShop this week. It is one of my favorite Dreamcast imports. This is the first time the game was released outside Japan.

If you like SHUMPS it is a must have.

Anyone buy or play Persona 5? One of the guys at work loves it and I don't know much about it. Need more info before I spend $35.

If you like Japanese games then you will like Persona 5. If you do not like Japanese games, such as how slow burn the stories can be, how they constantly hit you over the head with morality, and are centered around teenage protagonists, then you will not like Persona 5.

I had a blast with it, but it's very much a JRPG.

As with the other Persona games, its set in a Japanese high school. The characters have the power to shift into the Metaverse, a shadowy parallel dimension layered on top of the regular world, where they can utilize special powers (via their Personas) and capture spirits/demons/whathaveyou. To summarize the story as vaguely and succinctly as possible, the characters are essentially vigilantes who fight criminals and other horrible people by influencing them in the Metaverse. It deals with some fairly heavy themes and avoids some of the weird fluff so many other JRPGs get caught up in.

The story is pretty cool and the soundtrack is great...but, if you're not a fan of JRPGs, I'd be hesitant to recommend it.

I watched part of one of Metal Jesus's videos today at lunch about the PS4. I had to laugh a little at what was said about Persona 5.

I'll have to check out Zero Gunner 2. Any other Switch hidden gems I need to know about?
