Some new screenshots for Monster Hunter Online have appeared, showing us not only some of the prettier environments, but what one of the game's boss monsters looks like: Gendrome, a desert raptor.

Appearing first in Monster Hunter Frontier and returning in Monster Hunter 4 and Monster Hunter Online, Gendrome features poisonous fangs and a pack of smaller creatures (similar to the Great Jaggi) to keep hunters occupied while it charges in.

It will purportedly have a few different attack options, including a charging lunge towards hunters, a variety of different close range bites and slashes with its teeth and claws and it'll be able to call in reinforcements too - again, very similar to its raptor cousins, the Great Jaggi and Great Baggi.

However, a couple of new moves that set it apart, including a pounce, which sees it jumping into the air and attempting to land on and pin unwary hunters. It'll also do splash damage on landing. Its only other aggressive move is a sneaky one, as the Gendrome kicks up dust into the faces of hunters, obscuring their view.

The new screenshots are just as tantalizing as ever and make me really pray for a Western release of this. It's uncertain now if we'll be able to play it outside of China, but here's hoping.

Yup

It's been a couple hours since Xbox Reveal happened. It shouldn't take this long for a "game site" to report on it, as no matter a persons view on it, it's a very important next step in gaming. if you choose not to do so very soon, you'll show your bias and forfeit the right to be called a legitimate gaming source. Now on this article, I can't believe anyone would choose to play this as seeing their last game and servers were just taken down abruptly. Who wants to play a game just to log in one day to see it gone?

The game servers were shut

The game servers were shut down because the next game in the series had been out for several months. They announced they would shut them down last year not too long after they announced the Wii U Monster Hunter. It's not like they just suddenly shut them down without warning. Sadly, the servers being shutdown is going to happen for the majority of online games. As for the article, I love Monster Hunter and it will be interesting to see how this game develops, but I have one problem. The Gendrome first appeared in the original Monster Hunter, along with the Velocidrome, Iodrome, and Giadrome, not in Frontier. They are the creatures that the newer Jaggi and Baggi are somewhat based on. I would like to see a few more of the original Monsters come back in newer iterations of the series. I hope they bring back of a few of the more powerful ones. I'd like to see the Lunastra and Teostra again.
