Ancient Greeks were no stranger to blood sports in some places and while holding them in an arena would be something normally associated with Romans, it's no far stretch to include it in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In the region of Pephka, there is a dedicated arena where would-be champions duke it out with waves of combatants to defeat in order to come out on top. This…

Unleash your Spartan warrior

At a specific point in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll come across a group that call themselves the Cult of Kosmos. They're nasty people whose collective goal is to bend the world to their whims by prolonging the Peloponnesian war, terrorising the local populace, and causing widespread chaos. Assassinating them all too soon becomes one of the main focuses of your odyssey, so in order to work…
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a massive game. In fact, you can't zoom out all the way to see just how big it really is. Encompassing Ancient Greece into a game is no small feat, so when you first visit the map on the pause screen, you may feel overwhelmed. I know I did when I first looked at it. But for those who want to have…
After finding a very important person in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you are told of a place you need to visit. Tucked away and hidden from plain sight, there's one other big thing that is just waiting to be discovered: Atlantis. Yes, that Atlantis. You can actually explore the fabled lost city and it is quite a striking place full of technology from the ancient civilisation. Accessing…

As there are plenty of new beasties to hunt in Monster Hunter World Iceborne, you will be able to harvest them to obtain ingredients required to make the new Master Rank weapons. It's not just the new monsters either, as every single monster has a Master Rank equivalent and that means new parts. But how do you make them?
It's perhaps unsurprising that the new monsters in Monster Hunter World Iceborne yield brand new parts to combine into the brand new Master Rank armor. Every single monster, including the old ones, have new parts that you can mix and match to make some decent equipment. But which ones should you be creating and are there any sets that are essential?
Now that Monster Hunter World Iceborne is out on PC, at long last, there is a new cast of monsters to hunt. They range from big woolly beasts to intimidating elder dragons that have fresh ways to dish out the damage. There are also some returning favourites from the previous games in the series that the PC never got, such as Tigrex or Nargacuga, only…

If it wasn't for the fact that Tigrex has ridiculously low stamina, it would perhaps be one of the hardest monsters to fight in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. Regardless of how tired it is, the Tigrex can still give hunters a few problems with its unorthodox attack patterns, as well as some weaknesses that are far from obvious.

Look, there are a lot of silly designs in Monster Hunter World Iceborne, but I still think that this hench lad with a rockabilly mohawk takes the biscuit. Brachydios doesn't just wear that protruding thing on his bonce for show though, as secreted within is an explosive slime that it uses to coat its fists, before pummelling the ground like a toddler having a massive…
Those familiar with Monster Hunter will know that Nargacuga is a returning creature in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. Its bat-like features make it one of the more striking looking monsters. It also has a really bad temper and has a rather edgy way of showing just how bad tempered it is, by lighting up its red eye shadow.
Perhaps your first real challenge in Monster Hunter World Iceborne is the frosty savage itself - Barioth. On top of just being a really, really fast, it has some rather brutal melee attacks and ice tornado projectiles that can easily overwhelm you. Preparation is key to winning this fight and it is possible to beat it.
I always thought the Pukei-Pukei was a monster that didn't live up to its potential, but Monster Hunter World Iceborne's Coral Pukei-Pukei only served to highlight just how dangerous it could have been even further. Its tail can eject gallons of water in a jet stream. This makes the Coral Pukei-Pukei different enough to warrant needing its own strategies to defeat it.
How do you make one of the more annoying large monsters from the main game more annoying in Monster Hunter World Iceborne? How about giving it a sleep inducing gas that it can waft around like a bad smell. It makes Paolumu's hard-hitting, but otherwise very avoidable attacks a lot more dangerous. But as long as you avoid the gas clouds, you should be fine.
The original Tobi-Kadachi was one of the first monsters you faced in Monster Hunter World, but Iceborne has the Viper Tobi-Kadachi. It differs from its purely lightning cousin in its more reptilian appearance. It can also inflict one of three different status ailments that can easily put you in a vulnerable position.
The first monster that Capcom showed us for Monster Hunter World Iceborne was the Banbaro - a stag-like wyvern that is generally quite peaceful. However, if you cross it, it will use its antlers to scoop up boulders and trees to charge at you relentlessly. Banbaro can therefore be a bit of a handful to hunt if you're going in unprepared.
Your first foray into the frozen wilds of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will pit you up against the Beotodus. Think of this ice fish as the more aggressive version of Jyuratodus, as it has some very powerful strikes that inflict the nasty Iceblight status ailment. If you're struggling to hunt Beotodus, or are a bit rusty to hunting monsters, this guide will get you up…
Monster Hunter World's first big expansion takes hunters to the rather chilly land of Hoarfrost Reach. The new stuff isn't just limited to what you discover in the frozen tundra, as Iceborne includes new monsters to hunt in familiar and new locations, as well as new techniques and Master Rank equipment. There's a ton more besides this and we'll be going through as much as…
While the main Bloodstained game was a tribute to the Metroidvanias, Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon more resembles the old Castlevania games, right down to aping Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse's character swapping. But a long time has passed since Castlevania III came out in 1989, and I think enough refinements have been made that mean Curse Of The Moon is distinct enough.
Glavenus is yet another returning monster for Monster Hunter World Iceborne, and this one is rather unique. The main gimmick here is that Glavenus likes to use its massive tail like a cleaver, igniting it for extra power, and burning anything it touches. It also has a short temper and will frequently become enraged, making its attacks deadlier.
With the expansion to Monster Hunter World finally being released on PC, there's no better time to jump into the vast world of Monster Hunter World than right now! Even if you're delving into the main game without looking at the new expansion - Iceborne - there is plenty to do in this complicated game.
