I have a confession to make: I've never played Monster Hunter. Not on the PS2, not on the PSP and not (yet) on the Wii.
I think what I need is some sort of Monster Hunter lite--an entry-level version of the game that will show me the ropes, so to speak.
I doubt Capcom is planning to produce such a title anytime soon, but that's OK because has beaten them to the punch with the upcoming DS release, Kaiju Busters.
I know, the name isn't all that impressive, but the game itself seems impressive indeed:
Sadly, I have a feeling Kaiju Busters is going to remain a Japan-only affair, if you know what I mean.
Oh, well, maybe I'll just pick up a copy of the original Monster Hunter (on the PS2) and work my way up from there...
