Best game on the 3DS at the moment, and with it's arrival 3DS titles in general are finally looking to become interesting in the coming months. Shows what the console can do as well, really nice use of shading. Bought it on the eShop on the 26th, already have 84 hours played. I like the grind with collecting every piece of armor. It's time consuming and that's good for a handheld. Good replay value as well.
Honestly, I had never played Monster Hunter before. I thought it was weird looking at it, and coming from a company like Capcom didn't help either. I tried the demo first, wasn't impressed but decided to buy it anyway since the 3DS library is so dry. To my surprise I found out it had character customization.
AMD has been dropping hints about BF4 apparently being optimized for 8 cores, they've been working really close with the development of BF4. If anything that's finally going to point more towards the CPU side of things, not graphics. Haswell isn't that far of a step from Ivy Bridge unless you're a mobile user, just like how Ivy Bridge hasn't been that big a step from Sandy Bridge.
