Wow, the Amiibos look pretty good. But, at this point, I'm kinda burnt out. I've got plenty at this point :p

As for the game, it looks fun but I'm gonna need to try out a demo or something before I even consider getting it
Damn, those rider designs are so legit. This makes me want to give getting into Monster Hunter another go!

Great Gunpei I want this. I want this bad.

Crazy as it sounds to have a monster hunter game being a turn based rpg adventure.... I don't feel any concern whatsoever, just... Good fuzzy things. I am 100% satisfied with my core monster hunter experience, in both quality and quantity, and that satisfaction leaves me perfectly happy to enjoy something like this. And man, does it look like I am going to enjoy it, those overworld exploration shots just sealed the deal, so sweet. Overworld is one of the most important aspects of an RPG/Adventure for me... Nothing sours me faster than a map with dots on it.... But man, tearing around the world by land sea or air? Yes. Now. Give it to me.

Take note Nintendo, THIS is how you do right by a beloved franchise with a spin off.

1. Have the Core aspect to the series represented in both quality and an acceptable quantity.
2. Treat the spinoff with the respect the series deserves.
