It’s no surprise that I am absolutely in love with Monster Hunter Rise. This game takes a lot of lessons learned in Monster Hunter World and brings that into a more traditional Monster Hunter presentation with game-unique mechanics to explore. It’s a phenomenal entry to the franchise and a technical marvel on the Nintendo Switch platform.
Weird ending aside, Age of Calamity is one of the best Musou crossover games ever made. This game really does capture the visuals and sound that made Breath of the Wild special, it just lacks the somber tone that defined a generation.
I really enjoyed my time with Vigil: The Longest Night, and I hope to further explore the secrets of this dark world. This game punches above its weight class and I think as the game is improved with patches and hopefully more DLC it will become a genre favorite.
It is really cool that this rather obscure title has been ported to Switch and I do hope that this trend continues from NIS America. I just wish there could’ve been a couple more things tossed in to make this more appealing for a wider audience.
