The Hunt Remastered — May 2015: Dinosaur Party

The Hunt May 2015

In this return to the Hunt segment, things have been changed up a little bit. What you’ve known about the Hunt has been changed for hopefully the better.  The Hunt has now moved to a new monthly format to hopefully focus on the titles that haven’t gotten coverage over the month that it’s recapping in question.

Let’s face it: emotions can run high for subjects that we love, and that’s part of the strength of the media that we consume. I ... Read More »
