Not in the league of ProJared ;) .. But I've been playing some mh4 with my son, training him a bit. After advanced solo and local Tetsucabra he now played his first online hunt. Still doubting if I should buy him the full game since that might be a lot harder for him.

OK, the weapon guides are all updated.

 

Except I haven't written the insect glaive section yet cause I have to write it from scratch.

 

Dang it, maybe tomorrow.  Just not enough time in the day.

 

Edit:  All guides are updated and IG section added.  Can't wait for the game now.

 

Also added a section linking to the blogs from the localization director about how the English names were decided.  Good stuff.

Based on what I've seen and read, on a regular 3ds, it can range anywhere from 25-60.  Depends on how much is going on in the current area.  Cutscenes seem to stay locked at 60, since the game is just running through pre-set animations.  It's certainly never unplayable, if its like the demo.

 

On a new 3ds, it tends to stay locked around 60, occasionally dipping a little if things get really hectic. 

 

Thanks for all of your hard work. Really helps!

I do what I do.

 

On to other things:

 

Another blog from the localization Director: http://www.capcom-un...he-jaws-of-life

 

A user on the Capcom Unity forums made a handy guide for those of us transferring to a new 3ds.  Good stuff to know: http://www.capcom-un...ed-to-know?pg=1

 

Not SUPER relevant I guess, but I finished writing a little thing about the comparisons constantly made between MH and Dark Souls.  Keep seeing people compare and contrast them, and just couldn't stop thinking about it: http://www.ign.com/b...ls-discrepancy/

Seriously, the guides are great stuff man.

People compare ds to mh?

Thats a new one for me, Ive never heard others compare them honestly, the only time I even remotely thought about the two was after I first got my hands on one of those those massively unwieldy weapons that take forever to hit but do ridiculous damage, so I would switch between small weapons to run around, and when I saw an opening switch to the 10 foot sword or whatever and land the hardest attack I could with the big weapons for ridiculous kill bosses in 4-5 hits or less damage, and I thought to myself, after landing the first hit that quartered the bosses life bar, 'oh, you done messed up now game, I play monster hunter.'

Go to an article about MH on any major gaming site and head to the comments, or search the MH section on a large gaming forum.  You will find one or more of the following:

"How is this game?  I've heard it's like Dark Souls."

"If you like DS, you'll like MH."  (Usually said in response to the above)

"This game is terrible.  Everything it does, DS does better."  (Can be said in response to the above two, but I most often see on its own and unsolicited.  This one will always appear)

"I don't think they are very similar."  (Rarely said, and only in response to the first one)

 

The problem I see, is that the people involved never really discuss the mechanics that make them similar or different.  They just make vague generalizations.  Watching people never say anything concrete enough to come to a conclusion started to irk me, and thus I wrote what you see.

 

 

 

Gah!  Why can't the game be out now people?!  I'm going stir crazy here!

Oh, you mean like IGN. Yeah, I stopped going to places like that years ago. If I want to hear regurgitated AAAAAAAAAAAAAA publisher propaganda, Ill watch a commercial, its at least more entertaining.

I remember when I left IGN, I actually got banned by Matt Cassamancia himself for calling the Nintendo team out on being complete tools on their obvious shift to anti nintendo bullcrap after their 2009 change of management. It wasnt even controversial unless you were a moron, it was just provably false click bait bs. Told him hed be better off reviewing mobile games, at least then he wouldnt have to be a tool who writes obvious flame war clickbaiting bs that his Management (advertisors) tell him too. Then he banned me, and sent me a private message asking who the tool was now. Lol.

Im pretty sure the entire long time (Since like, n64) Nintendo team quit within like, a 4 month period after that. Guess none of them really liked being told to make nothing but lousy click bait garbage.

The only thing left there, aside from a few old remnants, are people who completely buy into the click bait propaganda.

You wont find anyone who can actually express why they feel a certain way. They either cant, because its nust a knee jerk reaction to their publisher marketing programming being confronted, or they wont because they know its a waste of time because of the afore mentioned.

Another Localization blog up.  My hype is reaching critical mass.

Who wants to guess how many hours I've put in the demo?  A hint:  I've put more hours into it than many people put in most games.

 

Prepare yourselves!

I remember when I found that.  My jaw dropped when I read that he was trying to use the stylus.  Surprised he would praise everything else about the game.

 

One more day!  One more day!

It seems that most early stage monster are a lot weaker than when I played them on mh3.

Most early stage monsters from tri were a lot weaker than their counter parts in 1 &2 unite etc.

Fine by me. It lowers the entry barrier for newcomers, and wastes less of the veterans times to get to the meat of the game.

As long as there are obnoxious outsiders giving the games bad reviews, because 'I hit the dinosaur like FIVE TIMES and it still didnt die!!! 6/10' Then it hasnt gone too far.
