The lock-on feature is so great. I was playing Tri earlier and kept tapping L because I was already used to the lock-on

@Tasuki...thanks. I think I just found it. There is an icon on the lower screen and then you just tap the L button. Not reading instructions on how to play a game before jumping in is a problem I have always had.

Yeah I know what you mean I had to talk the the people here and look up some other forums to figure out what I was doing when I first played the demo since I am new to the MH series.

Also another option for the 3DS is the CPP which cant be used on the demo but I heard that you will be able to use it on the full version and that can also be used to control the camera.

Not sure if anyone reported this, but Gamestop is now giving a preorder bonus, the Brady Games Strategy Guide (digital version).

People still use strategy guides? Have they heard of the internet?

Believe it or not some do. I work at Goodwill and you would be surprised at how many strategy guides we get a day. Games like Borderlands, Halo Reach, Skyward Sword etc.

And digital strategy guides now too?? What do the give you a card or something with www.gamefaqs.com on it or something?

Internet guides are OK, but I'd take a free strategy guide anytime. Formatting is nicer and you can't always access the internet.
"Most likely a PDF"
But yeah, I would never pay money for a strategy guide.

In my experience, strategy guides haven't been as comprehensive, or even correct, as community-created stuff. I rely on the Monster Hunter Wikia for MH, and I guarantee it has more info and tips than some strategy guide.

Agree. And for one thing the stuff on the internet can be updated when DLC comes out (if it does for a game) or just in general. Unlike a strat guide. Also most sites on the internet have a forum where you can ask questions if your not clear with the walkthrough or whatever it is your reading. I remember when Ocarina of Time came out on the N64 I had to use 3 strat guides because none of them were clear enough on what I was doing when I got stuck.

Any experiences with lock-on? (wii u) Sounds to me it would ruin the entire experience...

Nope it doesn't. And if you don't want to use it, you don't The only thing what the lock on does is rotating the camera into the direction where the monster is. It doesn't work like Z-targeting in Zelda.

It mainly means you'll be defaulting to tapping L to center the camera on the monster rather than using the analog stick or D-pad.

It's one thing to fight the monsters. I shouldn't have to fight the camera as well!

When playing the Wii U version, I rarely pressed the L button to centre the camera.
I'm used to just using the second stick to rotate it from Tri, and I much prefer to just do it that way.
The L button thing is just handy if I lose track of where the monster is or something.
In the end, it's a useful addition to the game without changing much.

This new Monster Hunter looks great in HD, and sounds fantastic in PCM 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
I hope we get the 4th one, and that LAN thing.

Actually, there's a day 1 update for Ultimate that's going to allow you to use a microphone/headset thing as well as a USB keyboard.

You'll also be able to use the GamePad's mic if you're like me and hate trying to wear headsets.

This just proves people were giving Nintendo crap for no reason when devs weren't using it.
