@TeeJay sadly no. I would so love a deku stick glaive, and it could use the beetle from Skyward Sword!

@Moon finish a MH game? Are you insane?? Just upgrade, the amount of content per title is more than most finish!

@Boidoh my first exposure to the series was the 3U demo... Which was horrible, but I took the chance and got 3U anyways, didn't regret it. The 4U demo is SLIGHTLY better than the 3U one (offering the Great Jaggi was a step in the right direction) but still, it's not a good intro for new players. The game has too steep a learning curve to be thrown into like that, and collecting materials to forge weapons is such a huge mechanic which the demo neglects. Don't base your opinion off the demo. If you possess the courage, just take the plunge! I warn you though, once you take down your first large monster with armor and a weapon you toiled to make, you may find yourself quite addicted. :-p

The DLC is monthly? A little disappointed, 3U had weekly DLC. Hope it all will be free, so excited for Friday now!

And I played through that awful cave, where a wild pokemon appears every two steps, for an hour in GAME Birmingham on the Eon release ticket day! All that effort and now it's a code? Hmph!

Does show that the StreetPass relays still aren't good enough in some parts of the world. And StreetPass can be one of the best elements of the 3DS. That's Nintendo though. Great promise, poor delivery in some respects. Recipe for frustration.

@Chaoz
>why is this guy charging 10.00$ for something that looks like a mediocre mobile game
I think it was safe to assume you were judging by the way the game looks, not how it plays.
>The only problem I actually have with the game is the price. I'm still going to give it a try.
Well how can you have a problem with the price if you didn't give it a try or maybe even read some about it? That was my argument in the first place.
>Critcally acclaimed, I'm sorry but wat?
Yes, critically acclaimed. http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/olliolli
>If it was at that rank then I would have heard about it long before this article. Maybe I full of crap and I been living under a rock for a while, but my point still stands.
It's really amazing how games can slip under one's radar sometimes.
>Also, it a PC, what do you expect? Not like cross buy is even useful since you can't even have to same progress on both version because you can't even transfer your save.
Well it's a nice touch anyway, and I'd love to have the game on the go as well as at home.
I'm sorry, but it really seems like you're just running your mouth without even knowing what you're talking about. People in these comments always do their best to find something to complain about.

I think Pikmin 1/2 & Twilight Princess should be in HD for Wii U only. Been wanting HD Ports for awhile now. However I do think Twilight Princess could work on the New3DS. But not Pikmin 1 & 2. 100 Pikmin on the low resolution of the 3DS just wouldn't loo good. Also as great as the 3DS Zelda games are. I would love to see HD Ports for the Wii U. I think Nintendo could be making some money between releases with HD Updates.

Oh god... I think they just need to let a bunch of fresh minds work on a sonic game and see what they come up with. Sonic used to be something I would be excited to play but now most of the games that have Sonic in the title are trash. I hope one day Sonic returns back to his former self...but right now I can't see that happening.

@Einherjar One IP that I don't get is Eternal Champions. It was popular on the Genesis and was popular on the Sega CD.

With the recent revival of fighting game series like Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, Street Fighter, Marvel, and other series, I don't understand why Sega has no intrest in trying to tap into this market.

A game like Eternal Champions if handled correctly could be a successful game, and might even give Sega some brownie points if done corretcly.

To be blunt, Sega's lack of concern of fighting games is a bit shocking and sad given I was a Saturn owner. I don't care what people say, the Saturn has a better selection of fighting games then the N64 and PS1 did, and Sega's own efforts like Virtua Fighter 2, Fighters Megamix, Last Bronx, and Fighting Vipers went a long way to making that argument.

But we are closing on ten years since Virtua Fighter came out, and no sign of 6. Their other fighting game franchises that could do well with a revival are dead and forgotten.

As a fan of Sega when they made hardware, it makes me sad to see how far they have fallen. They could be the top third-party developer in Japan, especially given how much Capcom and Konami have fallen.

Where is the company that proudly did games that were different from anything on Nintendo or Playstation? Where is the company that kept putting out arcade classics that not only were popular, but some of them like Virtua Fighter created a whole new genre? Where are their IPs that defined their hardware?

Sega does nothing to honor their legacy. They can't even put out a collection of their arcade games or games on other platforms that aren't the Genesis. I love the Genesis, but how many collections of the same games have we gotten from them?

Where are the Master System, Game Gear, Sega CD, 32X, or Dreamcast collections? I'll give a pass to the Saturn since its very tricky to emulate, but there is no excuse for the sheer number of Sega games that sit forgotten in a vault somewhere collecting dust.

The Sega of today is not the company that I played my first video games on. Sega today is a hollow shell of a company that gets by on bad Sonic games, and outsourced licensed game that almost all suck(with some exceptions) while having their money stolen by other companies like Gearbox.

People talk about how badly Square Enix and Capcom have fallen in recent years, but I don't think anything can compare to Sega. How do you go from a company that once beat Nintendo at their own game and defined video gaming to a operation that is fine putting out crappy Sonic games and dragging their mascot through the mud for a few bucks?

Even having to leave hardware does not explain Sega's problems. They could have been a top-tier third-party developer. But now, they are nothing but a joke.

I agree with what you said about Sonic being an anchor holding Sega back. While I don't think the franchise should go away forever, I say put it on hiatus for a few years.

Give the franchise time to recover from the bad titles of the past decade before bringing it back with the right people working on it.

Maybe a few years off will be what Sega needs to revive the Sonic franchise. It worked with series like Mortal Kombat and Tomb Raider.

Glad this is coming out, in the same vane as MH3U it will flesh out the experience. I am racing through this games online story and that scares me, I don't want it to be over hence why I am excited for the DLC. High rank armour could be useful I guess despite being HR. 6 (the end of high rank) Sadly the weapons don't excite me very much despite being a huge Zelda fan, mainly because I found that Seregios weaponry is a thing.

@Boidoh Yeah, as they said, the demo doesn't really do it justice. The game's real magic is in the 'leveling' system (or lack thereof). It's all about A) forging better armor/weapons from the monsters you fight, finding better items and upgrading just about anything B) Improving your raw button skill, weapon skill, knowing the monsters, knowing the right items to take and knowing the right strategy. No other game puts such an emphasis on ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, none of this '+10 exp', it's a simple, the more you play the better you get. It's an extremely gratifying system, and coupled with A) it totally makes you feel like a real life greenhorn monster hunter on a quest for glory :D

@ThomasBW84
Come on, Pikmin3 is on the Wii U. They should bring 1&2 on the Wii U through HD or Wii VC to complete the trilogy. And do you really think it'll be good to play with those tiny Pikmin on a little 3DS screen?

Also Pikmin 3 is glorious in HD. The gamepad controls works well. I voted Zelda on the choices. But I prefer if they remaster DK64 instead.

@Caryslan Absolutely right.
But consider the two things: At its time, Shenmue was a highly ambitious title, possibly biting off mor ethan it could chew.
Nowadays, such a game would be half as complicated to make and, depending on the platform, half as expansive.

And Shenmue is some sort of "mystical super game from ancient past" on the Internet. Its surrounded by massive hype.
I never played the series, but i mentioned it, because its one of the most demanded and probably most well known IPs out there.

But youre also totally right regarding their many other IPs.
Phantasy Star, as a strictly sci fi classic JRPG would be a welcome addition to the genre, that is dominated by high fantasy and / or steampunk settings.
Even the Star Ocean series is more oriented towards high fantasy themes than anything.

Panzer Dragoon is an all time favourite of mine. And a well made Sequel to Panzer Dragoon Saga would probably blow some minds.

They have so many unique IPs under their belt that simply vanished into obscurity. And even the more obvious ones, like Shenmue, are left untouched. In a world, where devs strife for fotorealism, a martial arts "life simulator" could be THE sleeper hit. Im personally not a big fan, but there are plenty out there.

But they cling onto Sonic, as if it is their sole life line, when in reality, it is their anchorn, dragging them down deeper and deeper.

But selfish of me but I voted twilight princess because it's the game I least want to see on the Wii u!! It bothers me that Nintendo don't like releasing remakes on handheld and home consoles, since I don't have a 3ds I wouldnt vote to reduce games I want to play ;)

I picked Pikmin 1+2 because I think it would be a perfect fit for the handheld as it's great for short bursts of play time. I would also like to see Zelda TP on the handheld, but they would need to iron out a couple of its flaws, firstly.

I think Twilight Princess will be saved for whatever the 3DS's successor's going to be (HDS?). Imagine that as a launch title, remastered for HD as I would imagine the successor will offer HD gaming on the go.

Then we can start demanding a HD remaster for Skyward :)

The only one I'd like is a compilation of both Pikmin games. I think all the other games look terrific even to this day, we don't need a port of them. I'd rather get a remake, kind of like what happened with both N64 Zelda games. A remake of F-Zero X would be amazing, a remake of DK64 would fit the portable perfectly, or maybe a remake of Kirby 64. My dream would be a remake of both Castlevania games for the N64, THAT would be worth it!
