Technically speaking, Monster Hunter Generations isn't a proper full-on sequel. Think of it like a scenic detour, the kind you take when you want to drive by the world's largest ball of aluminum foil. Generations strips out a lot of story and circumstance from the main game in favor of adding tons of new weapons, quests, armor sets, and jus...

Tower Defense Game Protect Me Knight 2 Gets English Release as Gotta ProtectorsJohn Bardinelli

There are only two things to keep in mind while playing Gotta Protectors: protect the princess, and defeat your enemies. Preferably in that order. The game features six unique classes, ranging from the standard "fighter" to the less-than-standard "old guy". Each class has a different set of attacks and control style, allowing you to dive in and get your hands dirty with melee combat, eliminate baddies from afar using magic, or even build barricades to be all tactical and stuff.

Just like with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Nintendo will randomly send out two codes to select members of My Nintendo. If you're signed up to receive e-mails from the big N, you might just get one. Then again, you might not, which leads to the inevitable "please sir, can I have a code?" on forums and social media across the web. The demo does include both local and online co-op for up to four players, allowing you to pick a weapon, pick a hunting style, and take on the kangaroo-like Great Maccao, the big angry owl Malfestio, and Nargacuga.

The Team Kirby Clash allows each player (each using his or her own 3DS) to choose a role, such as warrior, healer, or mage. Once the team is formed, you'll try to take down a boss as quickly as possible using your platforming skills while also supporting the team with the unique abilities of your role. After beating the boss, you'll earn experience that increases your stats and unlocks new abilities, which allows you to take on tougher and tougher bosses.

The co-op has been expanded this time around into the newly dubbed "Rescue Mode." Up to four players, either online or local, can team up to go on rescue missions and free hostages. It's like "Rambo," but with chickens and penguins. What's more, every hostage you rescue gets added to the cast of playable characters, which you can customize and load out with as many weapons of death as he or she can carry.

Capcom recently announced Monster Hunter X will indeed see a North American localization. Dubbed Monster Hunter Generations, the game features lots of throwbacks to previous titles in the series, reviving old weapons styles, monsters, locations, and more. New to the Monster Hunter series are playable palicos (yes, you get to be a cat), four flagship monsters, and gameplay tweaks that smooth over rough spots leftover from the fourth game in the series. Crafting, gathering, upgrading and mounting are all still here, only now you can do them with style.

Siege of Dragonspear fills the gap between Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition like some sort of globby glue substance. The gameplay will remain largely the same as previous Enhanced Edition releases, meaning you'll run around an isometric world beating things up, gaining experience points, and just generally RPGing the heck out of things with your friends. Co-op supports six online cross-platform players, which is about as awesome as it gets.

It is sometimes the case that free DLC is a little paltry, but MH4U is providing some great extras for free.  There are 14 new quests, but perhaps the most fun element is new Devil May Cry and Animal Crossing themed outfits for your characters.  Capcom have produced a detailed trailer for the DLC that highlights the various quests that you will get:

The Monster Hunter series is enormously popular in Japan. We're talking Grand Theft Auto levels of popularity. But in the west? Not so much. There's a strong cult following that lives and breathes all things Monster Hunter related, but sales just haven't been able to match those in the game's home turf....

The Vita version of the game has 4 player online adhoc co-op and 4 player local on certain missions.  How this translates onto the PS4 version is yet to be known, but 4 player online would make sense.  To try and encourage you to order a copy early, developers Omega Force are offering various bonuses dependent on where you buy the game:

The trilogy includes Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone, all packaged together for easy play. The mobile versions had reworked controls for touch screen punching and kicking, but PC users will have none of that virtual button bologna and can instead customize controls and use both keyboards and controllers. Three modes of difficulty are still present, just to make sure you're as good at the game as you remember. You can even mix and match modern or retro visuals and sounds. 8-bit all the way!

BombSquad is kind of like the best parts of Mario Party, Super Smash Bros. and Bomberman. The quick-bout arena brawler supports local and networked play for up to eight players, tossing everyone into a series of stages with the instructions to be the last one standing. There's a wide variety of modes to entertain yourself with, both competitive and cooperative. The usual battery of capture the flag, deathmatch and free for all features are there, but BombSquad sticks its neck out with some wacky modes like hockey, slow motion king of the hill, and soccer. Soccer with bombs? Now that's a game worth playing.

Nintendo and Capcom have announced a special edition 3DS featuring Monster Hunter branding that will be packed with the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the system. The 3DSXL is actually a "new" 3DS with a faster processor and enhanced NFC capabilities to support Nintendo's Amiibo figures. The price of the system is set at $229....
