Breathe deep and think of something else. Don’t get too excited. Unlike other studios who are spraying their launch trailers all over the internet days or even weeks before the actually arrives, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate cared more about your pleasure, waiting to launch until now.
Big. Green. Prone to violent fits of rage that stem from gamma-induced steroid strength that had certain “side-effects”. But enough about Sandy’s dietary habits. We’re here to talk about the Hulk.

Earlier this month, Alessandro told you that Nvidia was set to reveal the “future of gaming” on March 3rd this year at GDC.
