@sinalefa Yes, that's very true. I like the "grocery shopping" comparison. Good one!

After I hit G rank I didn't need to gather anymore though. Selling excess monster parts rakes a fortune, and Granny Go-To runs 50% off specials on a regular basis. Plus, if you farm nulberries on all 3 plots of land, full 10 day cycle, you can net 30,000+ zenny per batch.

@sinalefa I totally get that the action in MH is different. But the herb gathering, insect collecting, farming side of the game is pretty much up the same alley. And that is what I was referring to. Notice in the trailer they showed the peaceful collecting and gathering activities- because the games do share a similarity, at least in that respect. Obviously you don't go hunting monsters in AC. But MH isn't all just hunting monsters. That's just half of the game. The other half is very much similar.

I think it actually makes sense more than the other characters like Sonic and what not. Cause with AC characters, it's kind of like "See, you enjoy farming and collecting and gathering and all that hoopla? You can do that in this game too." I mean, of course most AC fans probably won't like the skill based hunting combat, but some might. It seems to me it's just another way to try to show different sets of gamers that they should consider MH as a game worth trying out.

And IMHO, not enough western gamers are playing Monster Hunter. MH3U did ok in the west, but not great. Think it didn't even sell a million across both platforms (in the west I'm referring to). And it's a fantastic game, probably my favorite of all time. It is my hope that more Nintendo gamers will come into the fold. It's SUCH a great game, and I'd love to see more people enjoying it as much as I do.

@Kirk Fair enough. I just don't think it matters I guess, added content never hurt anyone. Take it if ya want it, leave it if ya don't. Rather have too much excess content than a lack of.

It is odd, but harmless. If they wanna add an Animal crossing character as a felyne, I suppose I can see why. Monster Hunter does share a number of bug collecting and gathering similarities. And I wager a good number of gamers who enjoyed AC would probably enjoy MH too. As strange as that sounds, they both have that slower paced, gather and collect gameplay in them. Unlike Sonic (cough cough).

All I know is I'm excited for this game like no other. Must.... Play..... NOW

@Zombie_Barioth

Funny you say that. They actually did do a Fire Emblem crossover in The online version of Monster Hunter, what was it called... Frontier G? Ya, I'm still waiting for news of that game's localization.

Idk why some of the characters they choose are chosen, I just shrug my shoulders and take solace in the fact that cameo appearances, are in fact, nothing more than appearances. It's the main game I'm waiting for. I know you are too!

@Kirk You act like its a sinister thing to attempt to increase sales. I doubt they're getting paid for this but if they are, I really really doubt it's enough to affect their bottom line. Unless Capcom is paying millions of dollars to slap an Isabelle skin on a felyne. But if it does "get them out of the red", then kudos to Nintendo! What a story- Nintendo turns a profit by an Isabelle appearance!

I think games just get crossover appearances, sometimes to make the game feel more familiar to fans of the crossover character, sometimes as fan service, sometimes a little of both. But considering even Sonic and Taiko Drum Master make an equivalent cameo in Monster Hunter, it seems to me Capcom is the one asking for the characters. Seems a little too coincidental that both Nintendo, Sega and Namco (is it Namco? I think so) all just up and decide to put their characters in the game.

@Punished_Boss CMM (coordinate measuring machine)Programmer at a die cast manufacturer. I started at the bottom 3 years ago as a die caster making $10 an hour. I don't make nearly as much as you probably think. Haven't even hit $20/hr yet (though I should be within 2 years).

The trick is A) Gamers Club Unlocked at Best Buy. All new games 20% off, on top of $10 reward bonuses for pre ordering on many AAA games. Even MK8 had a $10 gas card offer. Average game costs $38 on consoles and $24-32 on handhelds.

Combine that with working 2 hrs overtime every day for total of 20 hrs/pay period, and every other Saturday, and a double time Sunday here and there, and it leaves plenty extra to play with. Pre order and pay off games as they are announced (usually $1000 worth at E3 every yr) and you're set all year long, minus the occasional sporadic announcement here and there.

@Beetlejuice No worries.

I do collect but bare in mind I am, first and foremost, a gamer. And I don't automatically like games just because Nintendo made them. Wii Party U, Game & Wario, Mario & Sonic, not my cup of tea. And I collect anything I like, Nintendo just happens to be one of them. In fact, I'm currently unwrapping 27 new Monster Hunter Figure Builder figures, because MH is one of my favorite games of all time.

So ya, MH4U is without a doubt my most anticipated game. I'm not particularly fond of this crossover, because I'm not a big Animal Crossing fan, but at the same time it doesn't really affect me either. I don't have to download the Isabelle content if I don't want it.

Which is how I ultimately concluded this doesn't really matter one way or the other to me.

@Beetlejuice
Wow, wasn't expecting insults just because I expressed a differing opinion.

Let me tell you something. I'm a Nintendo gamer, and a fan. But I am not a fanboy. Just because I don't get upset over a crossover doesn't make me a fanboy. I'm actually just a normal human being that doesn't care about stuff like this that doesn't matter. I've got more pressing issues at hand then getting in a fluster because Isabelle made a cameo in a game. I don't care precisely because I'm NOT a fanboy. I don't care about Nintendo's image and I certainly don't care about the implications of a cameo appearance to Nintendo's brand. It doesn't bother me because A) I don't think it matters one way or the other and B) even if it did damage their games' image, that's nothing to me. I just play their games, I don't get wrapped up in worrying about how decision A will affect their image and sales.

I do buy 30 Nintendo games a year, I also buy 30 PS4 games, Vita games, and Xbox One games every year. So please, don't act like you know me from a few posts on an internet comment thread.

If you've got an opinion to state, then state it. But we when you resort to logical fallacies such as "well you're just a fanboy THEREFORE your opinion isn't valid" not only do you insult the person you're speaking to but you dilute your own argument.

If you want to get bent out of shape over this, then by all means don't let me stop you.

@Kirk The connection is that the games are being sold to the Nintendo fanbase exclusively on a Nintendo platform. That's the connection. And as we all know, the western Nintendo fanbase typically isn't interested in trying anything unfamiliar. This is a slick way of drawing attention from fans who usually only buy Classic Nintendo franchises.

Notice Animal Crossing has sold over 10 million (or something to that effect) on 3DS? Ya, I don't think they're desperate to draw attention to animal crossing. I think this is charity to Capcom to help them sell a few more copies.

@Beetlejuice

It's simple really. Most Nintendo fans won't even consider a game unless it's familiar Nintendo IP. That's why games that are just as good, if not better than many Nintendo titles sell far less. It's a slick way of making a game feel familiar to the fans who otherwise wouldn't give it a second glance.

And, it's working for the most part.

Look at the sales charts. Nintendo doesn't need help selling Animal Crossing. Or Zelda. These crossovers aren't for Nintendo's sake, they're for the 3rd parties' sake.

As for cheapening the image, I'd say it broadens their image if anything. But even if it does "cheapen" it, that's nothing to me. I know their games are good, nothing else matters. If they wanna have cameo appearances to help sell games, doesn't bother me

@BearHunger

MM2 and MM3 are without a doubt the best there ever was. Bar none. But that's not to say there weren't others that were good. I never beat MM9, but from what I played it was pretty great. Most people I talk to say both it and MM10 are the next best entries after 2 and 3. Although personally, I'm still rather fond of the original, even with its limited capacity.

@TheWPCTraveler Nah, 3DS version (at least from the demo) plays better than I ever imagined was possible. And looks much better than you would expect it to.

With that said, the Wii U version will still blow it away. But that says more about the quality of the console version than lack of quality on the handheld.

If 3DS version is any indication, which it is, we've got one heckuva game coming on Wii U.

JaxonH commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

@RaphaBoss Ya know, I still fire up F-Zero GX on GameCube from time to time to get my fix. Game still looks as beautiful as it did it's first day of release. I suggest you go back and play GX, maybe unlock The AX Cup or something to get some new tracks, because the fact of the matter is I don't think we're going to see an F-Zero for quite some time. But I tell you what, GX has never been more fun, and still plays great today.

But if you are gonna hold out hope for a new F-Zero, be sure to support this game when it releases, because if FAST Racing Neo doesn't sell well, we definitely won't ever see a new F-Zero. Whether or not it's the truth, low sales will be perceived by Nintendo as a lack of demand for the genre. And chances are they'll probably be right.

It does suck to have screenshots disabled, but I imagine you can still post on the image share website from the browser if you so desired. And it is just one game. A year ago 3DS didn't even have Miiverse. What's one little community in the big scheme of things? It's not even losing a community, just posting pics in that community.

I love situations like this, where I am given the option of buying the game on any of the three consoles or two handhelds.

I love it because I get to proactively choose the Wii U and 3DS as my systems of choice. Letting the developers know that yes, I could have bought it on the other consoles, but I wanted it on my Nintendo platforms.

@rjejr and it probably will come out before Black Friday, but if it doesn't I don't really personally care. I leave sales to Nintendo. All I care about is when I get to play the game. The question was whether it was going to be this year or next year, so this leak was important inasmuch as it clarified that it will in fact be this year. I don't care if it's before Black Friday, after or any other significant date on the calendar. I'm just interested in the approximate timeframe I'll be playing it.

JaxonH commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

@rjejr Nobody is saying it's confirmed, just highly probable. 3 separate leaks for Smash and Amiibo say Nov 21, I wouldn't dismiss it lightly. Again, obviously it's not confirmed but it is more likely than not. Nintendo doesn't give placeholder dates. They only give dates when they actually intend to release. Release windows are another story. But when it comes to actual dates, especially just 2 months from release, odds are they're accurate.

It's one thing to give a date back at E3 when it's half a yr away. It's a whole other story when you're 2 months from launch. Don't take it as fact, obviously, but don't be surprised either when they announce Nov 21.

And keep in mind, Smash did release in summer, it was only in the west that it's releasing 12 days after summer ends. And is anyone really gonna split hairs over 12 days? We're trying to figure out the approximate time of release, not take bets in whether it was technically the exact date they were shooting for.

If Smash U comes out within 12 days of Nov 21, who cares. We just want an approximation, to know when to expect it.

JaxonH commented on Preview: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Go...:

@rjejr Well, DKC Tropical Freeze comes to mind, along with 3D World, which both had their dates moved after they were announced. But the point I'm trying to make is that their full intentions were to release them on those dates. They didn't just mindlessly pick a date on the calendar. And I suppose the same could happen here, nothing's ever a guarantee, but what we do know is that their full intentions are to release it on that date. And being this close, I doubt it'll change. Pretty sure they're not going to have empty shelves on Black Friday. Especially now, when they can just release a day one patch if needed, which is what they're doing with Smash on 3DS

JaxonH commented on Preview: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Go...:

@rjejr I've seen retailer leaks before, and 9 times out of 10 when you have multiple retailers leaking the same date, it's legit. When Nintendo gives dates, they're the real thing. They don't give false dates or placeholders. Only placeholder years or in the case of Smash, a release window. The only time a placeholder date other than Dec 31 is used for Nintendo titles, is when the game is releasing on that day. Or in some rare cases when retailers lie to boost pre orders, like the infamous May 6 Bayonetta 2 date at GameStop. And I would normally consider that reason, but Amazon and Fred Meyer are not known for fabricating placeholder dates for Nintendo games other than Dec 31. If they said Nov 21, it's because Nintendo told them and Nintendo only gives precise dates when it's the real deal.

I'm pretty sure you can mark that date on your calendar. If it turns out to not be Nov 21, it won't be far off. One thing's for sure though, the game is definitely releasing this year

And I think that'd be a little odd to ground pound with Zelda in Hyrule Warriors lol... Or maybe that's a whole level of awesomeness I can't handle thinking about right now!

@rjejr

Well, it's a leak. Not like Nintendo ever intends for these things to get out. Retailers aren't supposed to disclose this kind of information. But regardless of the source, it's exciting nonetheless! Amazon Germany outed Nov 21 release date for Amiibo which releases same day. And there was another leaked date through another retailer, also Nov 21. So you can pretty much take it as gospel at this point. Thought you'd be excited, since you were thinking it wouldn't release this year and all.

I play as Mega Man too. Trying to master his move set right now. Playing no items until I can get it down properly. It's a fun game! I can't wait for the Wii U version. Though I'm just happy this demo will allow me to play up in MN at the hotel. I was bummed the game didn't come out til the Friday I come home.

JaxonH commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

I wish I had more codes to give away, but I already handed out my 3.

Platinum members are the most loyal of Nintendo fans. We spend more money on more games and fill out more surveys. With the recent push to digital, Platinum members have gotten the short end of the stick lately. Keep in mind that Nintendo promised to start rewarding their loyal customers.

So what I'm saying is, people shouldn't get upset just because they didn't get a code. Those of your fellow gamers who did get codes, they earned them. They spent a ton of cash on a ton of games and a lot of time filling out surveys to reach Platinum status. Now they're loyalty is being rewarded.

What's the worst case scenario? You wait a week to play a demo? Doesn't sound too serious to me.

@rjejr Haha, well I hope they enjoy it. I know I am. I was actually a little concerned the transition to the smaller screen would render the characters hard to see, but surprisingly the game looks and plays great. I like the fact the demo has unlimited uses. Might download the demo on one of my LE 3DS as well, then I can bring them to work and play against my co workers. Nothing like getting paid to game out on a double-time Sunday (last Sunday I brought in multiple 3DS's and hosted a Mario Kart tournament through download play).

@Nirosmir That's already been confirmed by Nintendo themselves. We're just waiting on a more specific release date than the vague spring 2015 window they gave us

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is slated for March- I imagine they'll coincide the release of the New 3DS with that game, considering it's releasing around the same time and takes advantage of the second analog. Either that or the New 3DS will release a month before Monster Hunter, in order to put some space between it and Xenoblade.

It's called currency exchange rates. 1 dollar US money equals 62 cents in British Pounds, 77 cents in euros, $13.23 in Mexican pesos, or even $107.05 in Japanese Yen.

Prices vary by county, but you'll still pay roughly the same amount for the same item anywhere in the civilized world. You could take your money to a currency exchange right now and they will happily give you $13 in pesos for every American dollar.

@midnafanboy yeah don't get me wrong, Ubisoft isn't exactly in my good graces right now with some of their more recent statements and actions, but I never let something like that come between me and a good game.

Once I get it, I'll give you an honest, unbiased opinion on what I think of it. I'm not afraid to call it how I see it. If the game sucks, you can trust me when I say that I'll tell you exactly that lol...

JaxonH commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

@midnafanboy Map on the gamepad is fine with me. I mean, that's what it's there for. I only wish more games would put a map on the gamepad. One of the most convenient and streamlined uses of the second screen I've experienced to date. I'm not sure what people expect it to have, I mean it's just a screen. A map is as good a thing as any to display on it, especially if it's interactive like they're claiming.

I can understand being upset about no footage, but I know from personal experience that none of their ports were that bad. Sure, Splinter Cell was missing local co op, but it ran and played well, and more impressively it did it all from disc without needing a mandatory install like other versions. Online had some issues for the first month but so did every other version. It wasn't a Nintendo exclusive issue.

Assassins Creed 3 was just fine imo, even had that awesome George Washington DLC. Assassins Creed 4 was another decent one. People say it was a bad port just because it had a few less frames per second, and I just don't understand that. Sonic Lost World had a bad frame rate and it almost sold 1 million copies. MH3U had frame rate issues and it's sold over half an million copies. And everybody's looking forward to sequels from both of those games. Yet AC can run a few frames less and it's this huge deal, like the game was broken or something.

So yeah, if anyone's wondering how good the port is going to be, I would say look no further than the quality of ZombiU, AC3, Splinter Cell Blacklist or AC4. I own all of those games and they're acceptable releases. Perfect? No. But I've played a lot shoddier and a lot worse. And on other consoles too. Most PS3 ports from 360 ran worse than Wii U ports from Ubisoft. Yet people still went out and bought the games by the drove. I mean I've actually played games that were unplayable. Once you play a game that is actually broken, it puts things in perspective. Occasional frame rate dips or lack of DLC is hardly enough to quench the enjoyment of a thoroughly entertaining video game. And I always try to look at the bigger picture. If I'm getting off TV play and map integration on the gamepad, and subscription free online, I'm willing to trade off for a few frames per second or DLC support.

But hey, that's just me.

JaxonH commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

People complain about lack of AAA 3rd party games on Wii U, but ya give em one and they ridicule it.

I, unlike a good majority of commenters here, buy more than one game every 3 months. I don't care if it releases when Smash does, I'll just buy em both! Problem solved.

I skipped this game on PS4 and Xbox One because I won't pay a subscription for online, and because I like gamepad integration, and because I like off-TV play options. And because I enjoy supporting any developer willing to support Nintendo.

This is a good game. It got favorable reviews, it was generally well received, and it was one of the most high-profile AAA releases of 2014. This is exactly what people said they wanted. Yeah it's probably cheaper on other systems, so go buy it on another system if you want it cheaper. But like any game that gets ported to a new system, it sells for full price. Because it's new to THIS system.

I don't care how many copies this game sells, and I don't care if Ubisoft never brings a game again. That's not what it's about. It's about enjoying good video games when they come. This is exactly what people said they wanted, and it's what I wanted. So I'm going to buy the game, play it, and I'm going to enjoy every last minute of it.

The rest of you can do whatever you want.

JaxonH commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

@Spoony_Tech I hadn't heard about the Fantasy Life thing, I'll do some research on it because I am getting that game.

As for Xenoblade, it's important to understand that the game cannot run on the current hardware. It would be one thing if they were subtracting a game from the current 3DS lineup and making it exclusive, but all they're doing is making an additional game available that otherwise would have never been possible. That's a good thing. New 3DS or no New 3DS, none of us would ever play that game on our current handhelds. Once you appreciate that reality, there really isn't anything to be upset about. On the contrary, I'm stoked that they actually bothered to improve the hardware to an extent which games like Xenoblade can now be played on the go.

For me though, none of this is an issue anyways because there's no way I'm not going to buy the new 3DS. It's a no brainer for me- side angle 3D viewing (I love playing me some games in 3D, so this is huge), C stick, faster internet/downloads, games not previously possible (first of which is one of the best games ever), customized faceplates, NFC (saves money not having to buy an adapter), zL/zR... All that stuff is a must for me. Not a chance I'd ever pass up on that. Ill trade in my XL, pay $100, and have brand new system with a 1 yr newer battery. And you figure minus costs of NFC adapter and it's like $70 to upgrade. Heck I'd have paid that just to not deal with the prehistoric internet speeds on Miiverse. I can't stand going to Miiverse or eShop on my current 3DS, it's just too slow. Drives me crazy every time- always end up wanting to hurl the system at the nearest wall lol...

Anyways, I can certainly understand the frustration with lack of CPP support. I'm just not surprised because Nintendo never supported that peripheral in the first place. It sucks that it won't use it, but I do think it's important to recognize that this has nothing to do with the New 3DS. Nintendo was never going to implement CPP support for this game, just like they never implemented it for the last 15 games that could've used it. I accepted that sad reality about two years ago, and have made my peace with it.

@Spoony_Tech it's called Ultimate for a reason :) They're not gonna take away from the game, only add to it. Do you know how much outrage there would be if the game released without circle pad pro? Trust me, it's in the game. And no, support would never be lost in localization. If it's supported in Japan it'll be supported in the west.

If you've ever trusted me and my judgment on anything before then listen to me now. You have nothing to worry about. And if you don't trust my judgment, then just remember these words, and when the game releases with CPP support, perhaps I'll have earned your trust then.

@Spoony_Tech
Actually, it only uses it as a substitute for left-handed gamers, NOT for a 2nd analog control scheme. So even in a game where it's already programmed to be used, Sakurai STILL refused to use it for a 2nd analog. AND it was a perfect fit too! That speaks volumes. If he refused to use it for a second analog in a game that he already had it working for left-handed gamers, then we know for DANG sure he was never gonna use it as a 2nd analog Smash.

JaxonH commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

Well for one, I can tell people right now that Monster Hunter 4 WILL be compatible with the CPP. MH3U was compatible and so will this new one. In fact, it already is. The game came out last year, WITH support for CPP. So let's not start getting upset over things that are 100% confirmed to happen already.

The reason Smash isn't compatible, is because Nintendo never used the CPP anyways. Luigi's Mansion? Nope. Kid Icarus? Nope. 3D Land? Nope. Especially with this being a Sakurai game. He refused to implement the CPP even though it was a perfect fit for Kid Icarus- much more perfect than for Smash, that's for sure. We already KNEW this game wouldn't be CPP compliant. Anyone who thought otherwise was, how shall we say- misguided.

Regardless of the New 3DS, this game was never going to use the CPP anyways. People are just noticing now, because those of us who upgrade will have a feature they won't.

All I can tell people is, you've got plenty of advance warning. With trade in value, you're looking a $100. If ya can't come up with $100 in 6+ months, well, I'm surprised you can afford games at all. Much less a console to play them on. Even if I was a kid, I could earn $100 raking leaves and carrying groceries. If ya don't upgrade, it's cause you didn't want to, not cause you couldn't.

@gatorboi352 I get what you're saying, and I'm not really disagreeing. But nonetheless, if a game is being made, it should be made right, or not made at all.

As for not being as relevant anymore, I wouldn't say that. Vita tanked yet Sony is still relevant as a company and their PS4. Wii U has had it rough but Nintendo is still very much relevant as a company and their 3DS. The only ones who think Nintendo isn't relevant are the ones who don't play Nintendo. But ask any of the 50 million 3DS owners or 7 million Wii U owners, or those who still play Wii and DS, and they'll tell you otherwise.

Only reason it seems that way is because AAA typically doesn't sell to Nintendo gamers, and those are the games with the mega budgets. Money brings clout, and dominates media topics and image. But just because the media and non-Nintendo gamers have the loudest voices, doesn't mean Nintendo gamers don't have a voice too

JaxonH commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

@MajinSoul It's from like 5 years ago. Whatever is was, it 100% never happened.

Evidence is pointing toward a 2D Metroid release on 3DS from a different internal team. Can't remember the name of the studio, but their lead made a statement about the franchise, and he's never been involved with Metroid before, which means if he's talking about its future direction, it's probably because he's leading development.

We can chalk this art up to just concepts and floating ideas from years ago.
