    Another monster hunter true story about difficulty getting into it. I played monster hunter freedom unite initially and after 15 hours of getting beaten by what I now know as ‘baby’ bosses I said screw it. Did pretty much the same thing a few months later. Wasn’t until almost a year later that I picked it up and finally managed to get to grips with it with the added help of guru DJ. I also think the following equation applies to monster hunter. For every 10 hours you play, you have learned or completed 1% of the game.

    Randy how was the line for Transistor on Friday? We ran there as soon as the floor opened on Sunday morning, and it was already at the 2 hour mark. It was craziness.

      It was definitely a (surprisingly) hot attraction on Friday. I’ve got to confess that I used my connection to VGH to hop the line — they had a demo unit set aside for members of the press and the Supergiant folks were kind enough to let me use it. Did you get to play it?

        Nah, we balked at the line and never went back. We ended up spending forever on line elsewhere though, so we probably should’ve just stayed.

    Its going to be tough to get tickets to PAX Prime…but Randy if you go I know of several bar-cades you’ll need to check out

      Excellent! I’m not 100% positive I can make it happen but I’ll definitely get in touch if I do.
