November 12 – November 18

This is another public service announcement for videogame developers: If you are going to make a game, give it a title that can be searched on any search engine (Google, Bing, Pornhub – you know, the usuals).

I think it’s safe to say that you need patience to get into Monster Hunter Generations: Ultimate. Almost as much patience as you need to read the title.
