Not too sure if they have mentioned anything of the sort, but I would love if his character traits were included such as tracking and hunting. But with hunting comes tracking, so if his hunting skills are included I would expect to have tracking thrown in there, too.
    The game really isn't that good, as I expected, and even my brother knows that after watching a video poking fun of the enemy A.I., if those video reviews David posted weren't enough. Just goes to show the TellTale game, despite you being disappointed about it, is still the superior game adaption.

    Monster Hunter Online has been announced!

    ...But it's made with CryEngine 3. And it's China-Only.

    Hmm, seems like Microsoft is planning to unveil their answer to the Wii U and the PS4 on May 21st. Anybody planning to get one from the get go?

      I just wonder what it's going to be called.

      XBOX 720? Anyway, I'm not sure yet. I'd get the PS4 before this new generation console game, but... we'll see.

      While that'd kind of makes sense, it'd be pretty silly sounding in my opinion. Though I suppose given enough time it would grow on my. Kinda like the Wii U and the new Mewtwo form.

      I like the name 720. It at least sounds better than Durango, methinks.

      I think a new naming scheme would be better for them, but eh. I don't really care much about games anyways - more how the console actually performs.

      They also say a new Wii U Mario Kart may be out before the end of the year.

      There is always this possibility.

      If they actually did that I would laugh so freaking much. xD

      But in reality, I dunno, something other than a number sounds more likely.

        Supposedly, it's been made into a rumor, but... 4chan was said to have that "secret list" leaked. I take any supposed rumor from 4chan with a grain of salt mind you, so there is a high chance that this might be fake, but, if it's true, it'll be awesome to see~

        BTW for those who are wondering; this is the "leaked" list in question:

          That looks so fake to me it's not even funny. Why would they even have a list like that- it's up to the individual branch companies.. and not all of them even speak English.

          FAKE.

            Erm...

            I don't think it's real as Kura said it's Fake. You will just have to wish for the stars that it's true.

            I doubt a real internal document would say "Super Secret" on it. And if it was real, I'd worry about the integrity of the people who are supposed to be handling this stuff. Looks pretty fake to me.

              Smash Bros. Wii U having a fall release sounds way too early, for it means that the game could be rushed. Wasn't the 3DS version also listed to come out this year?

              Well i see the one problem people have with this has been pointed out. But think about it "Supper Secret" could be an inside joke or put there so if it did get leaked no one would buy. Also that would be even more of a reason for it being on 4chan to make you think it's fake. I am not saying it's real though, just that it's not out of the possibility with more Nintendo staff called in to work on it and practically all of namco bandai. I will pray to jirichi that it comes true. Besides it may not be a permanent release date and any problems in it would be fixed with DLC.

              There's no way SSB or a Wii U Zelda (among other things on that list) will be out this fall. And as pointed out, the "OMG SUPER SECRET" heading would never appear on an official document.

              I don't expect SSB before fall 2014 at the earliest, and probably 2015 for Zelda. The most we'll get this year is The Wind Waker HD and probably a Mario game. Nintendo has said Mario Kart will be out this year, but I'm thinking it'll get pushed back to spring.

              The zelda on there most likely refers to wind waker HD so it's likely not suppose to be zelda U.

                Since we're still talking about SSB4 and Zelda Wii U, I would have to say that both titles could be competing for best Wii U game if they were both released on Fall 2014.

                Also, I've noticed that a lot of SSB4 roster predictors haven't payed attention to this important piece of information regarding the game: http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/39783/smash-bros-wii-u-may-not-feature-more-characters/

                That means there won't be over 50 characters in SSB4, and it could either mean around 43-45 characters in total or the same number of characters in Brawl, 35, with severe cuts for newcomers.

                Good, now we'll see more unique characters and less clones.

                ...not that I don't like the clones, but when you start adding more and more characters, the roster becomes less unique (this was a HUGE problem in Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3, which boasted the most characters to date, and consequently, the most clones and generic moves).

                I could already tell who isn't coming back for the sequel that was introduced in Brawl (or Melee, possibly), though, and I don't think there's any need to worry about the amount of newcomers.

                  Obviously the original 12 are mainstays, and so are the default characters from Melee (Bowser, Peach, Zelda/Sheik, and Ice Climbers), the default characters from Brawl (Diddy Kong, Pit, Metaknight, Dedede, Olimar, Pokemon Trainer, Ike, and Lucas), and the WTF characters (R.O.B. and Mr. Game & Watch) because of the patterns I've noticed from the past three games. The only characters who aren't safe are the unlockable characters, excluding the original 4 unlockables from 64. The characters I see getting axed are Wolf, for the lack of an official character model from the most recent game, Star Fox 64 3D, Lucario, for Mewtwo's comeback, Ganondorf, for the fact that Demise was his earliest incarnation and is more likely to be picked over Ghirahim or Impa to represent Skyward Sword, Toon Link, for his complete clone status, Snake, and Sonic (both being third-party characters). Even though I said the Pokemon Trainer will stay, but the question is, will they use Red again to represent the concept or use a different trainer and set of starters to share the same name? If the latter, then I really hope for the option to play as a female trainer, because that's been my life long dream after seeing Dawn's performance in the anime, and because Leaf wasn't canon to the series' timeline, hence why she wasn't shown as a gender option for Red in Brawl.

                  So EA acquired rights to the Star Wars games.

                  ...Take that as you will, but I'm not completely sure that this is good news. We'll see, in time, but as with all things EA acquires, it'll probably be a mixed bag of positivity and negativity.

                    Wasn't EA voted one of the worst companies ever?

                    ...Well, regardless; while I'm not really that big of a fan of EA, I don't mind that they acquired the rights to Star Wars, but, what they do with it, is obviously the main concern.

                    I was going to say if we look at the positives DICE might develop a Battlefront esque game, but having read up on it they're definitely developing something so now I'm excited.

                    I've seen my fair share of bad Star Wars games anyway so this can't go wrong personally.

                    A bad game isn't always the worst EA does; generally bad games (in the case of EA) are due to noose-around neck strict deadlines, poor playtesting, and poor Publisher-Developer relations/treatment, among other things (the EA in a Nutshell video portrays this pretty well).

                    However, the bigger, and I dare say scarier thing is that they could milk or DLC the hell out of their titles, as well as the above statement. Some people say that Activison is worse in that respect, but after having been a fan of the Sims for all these years...it hurts, it's a little hard to say that one is worse than the other, but I'm somewhat inclined to do so.

                    And then there's Origin *Shudder*

                    Of course, it's not always bad. Heck, in some cases the developers have things the way they intended for them to be, but seeing the fall of series like Ultima, The Sims, and arguably Sim City, I worry for Star Wars.
