Capcom took Danny out for a Monster Hunter themed meal, he videod himself eating weird food / getting tanked

Being in the games press you often get invites to lavish dinners and gala events and other such stuff. Usually we don't go in for that sort of thing - the promise of a few drinks and a plate full of chips isn't enough to drag us away from our gaming devices - but Capcom asked if we wanted to eat from a menu of Monster Hunter delicacies. So we sent our Danny to "investigate". Part 1: Mega Potion Part 2: Kezhu Saliva & Fresh Kirin Tears Part 3: Gore Magala Tail, Feeler, Crystalised Frenzy Jelly & Grated Parashroom Part 4: Kushala Daora Steak, Eye Lens, Carapace Piece, Dragon Treasure & Blood Part 5: Psychoserum Part 6: Wyvern Scale Sushi - Rath…

Learn how to play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite with AppSpy - Part 9

After the mysterious disappearance of Part 8 of our playthrough of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on iOS, the trio of James, Harry, and myself are back and raring to go. Harry's made himself a hat made of wasps, I've got some spiky shoulder pads, and James... James is still rocking the first jumper you get. After we berate him mercilessly, we all set off into the wilds to fight Hermitaurs, Giaprey, and even a Velocidrome. Want to watch the entire series? Check out our playlist on YouTube.…

While the cat's away the... something... something... Basically James was away for this episode so Harry and I run amok. A couple of members of the AppSpy / Pocket Gamer community join us in our ongoing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite quest, and show us their awesome armour sets while they lead us to easy victory after easy victory. Plus there's a lot of talk about pants. I think James might get mad when he gets around to watching the video below. Did you forget to watch the last episode? Rectify that.…

So yeah, I wuss out a bit in Episode 5 of our Monster Hunter Freedom Unite series. I told fellow MH compatriots Harry and James that all I want to do after the string of shocking defeats we've been experiencing, is to head into the wilds and pick Mountain Herbs. But things really heat up when the AppSpy / Pocket Gamer crew meet with what would become our nemesis. The mighty Congalala: a pink monkey with a bad case of wind. An epic battle ensues, and this is how it unfolds... Need to catch up on the last episode? Click here.…

In the first episode we ran into serious trouble with pink apes. In this episode it's a gigantic boar that becomes a thorn in our sides. It's always something, isn't it? We're better prepared this time though, and we've brought with us not just hot drinks, but cold ones too. Harry also made us wear clothes (which is only fair, I guess), and this has greatly increased our resilience to the monstrous nasties that inhabit the sprawling world of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. So grab a hot or cold drink of your own, get comfortable, and click play on the video below, to continue learning how to play Capcom's beastie-basher for iOS. Miss the last episode?

You know what's brilliant? Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is brilliant. We've got a review that says as much. But it's also dense. Very very very very dense. Because of this combination of challenge and quality, we called it "a slow, difficult, but rewarding crawl to greatness". So if you're new to the Monster Hunter series it can be a little off-putting to begin with, as you die again and again not quite understanding where you should be going, or what you should be doing, once you get there. Enter AppSpy, and an intrepid team of Monster Hunter players with varying levels of skill. Together we're going to teach you the ropes of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, as we ourselves learn them, and…

Monster Hunter Explore is coming to iOS and Android in 2015

Monster Hunter Explore is coming to iOS and Android in 2015

Monster Hunter Explore is a game about battling monsters, finding treasures and artefacts, and then battling bigger monsters than the monsters you fought before. It's free-to-play, is coming to iOS and Android, will be available in 2015, and I'm incredibly keen to see more. Now here's where things get a bit hazy: Monster Hunter Explore is set to be a "re-born" version of Monster Hunter Smart, a Japan-only release on iOS. How exactly it's going to be "re-born" is a bit of a mystery. And here's where things get a bit disappointing: the Capcom rep I reached out to for information on a Western release for Monster Hunter Explore stated that currently "this title is confirmed only for Japan".…

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is spotted in the wilds of the App Store, has large bounty on its head

We've known Monster Hunter Freedom Unite would be coming to iOS for some time now, but the question on our lips has always been "when"? "Now!" is the answer, as the title is currently available in App Stores the world over. And that's good news, because we've been more than a little keen to get our hands on it ever since we played it at E3. The original was released on PSP in 2008, and this new iOS version features improved visuals, automatic targeting of monsters in combat, and support for MiFi controllers. Of particular interest to us is the online co-op multiplayer with upto three other players, as we're totally up for forming a party, trekking out into the wilderness, and hunting m…

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS is coming to the US App Store

Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has always been popular in Japan, but has struggled to make the transition to western markets. Now, having been out in its home territory for some time, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS is making its way to to other markets. Monster Hunter is an apt title for a series that has you hunt, trap, and kill monsters for the valuable materials they offer. These can then be crafted to form more powerful equipment in order to hunt larger creatures. The satisfying feedback loop this provides is further enhanced by the multiplayer aspect, in which hunting larger game requires you to work as a team - all fulfilling different roles in the hunt. The series' pop…
