ollietaro commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

I just wonder if this will affect Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Multiplayer Online Quests. If it becomes an issue, I can and will solo the game as I have done with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I will solo all the quests first before I do them online with others. Playing online also lowers the difficulty by nature since you have 3 people helping you.

Why would people want to buy Japanese games if they can't read 'em? What games are EU-exclusive? I find plenty enough to play that's available, thank-you.

@galachef55 Thanks! I procrastinated hunting Dire Miralis for the 5 Gushing Magma needed for the Ishtar for so long but it actually became easier than I thought. It took a long time, but wasn't too tough. My most successful Dire Miralis run is about 40 mins. with the Stygian Superbia dual blades. Now, Alatreon remains my biggest challenge...

Defeated Dire Miralis in the lake part yesterday. It's easier to carve b/c you can see where to go, whereas on land it is hard to tell which part your hunter is standing in: head, body, or tail so I don't get as many carves as I ran out of time running around. Upgraded to the Shining Ishtar gunlance yesterday, too :) 552 raw, 450 poison, baby!

@Iggly I always bring 10 honey even if I don't end up using them. I usually just avoid Alatreon and Dire Miralis hunts altogether :b although I would like the Gushing Magmas necessary to finish upgrading the G.Rathian poison gunlance, however the lucent poison gunlance has been helpful with 30% affinity but less poison.

@Iggly thank-you for this helpful new knowledge. I usually use Mega potions whenever I take damage but of course it heals red health first which makes it heal less green health. Do you also bring 10 Potions and 10 honey like I do? That way it's like carrying 20 Mega potions. Also, there's not usually enough time to take two healing items consecutively but I guess I could make it work. I also bring farcaster (and 10 combinable) to Abyssal Lagi fights and sometimes don't end up using any Mega potions at all b/c I just keep using the base camp bed.

ollietaro commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perf...:

Umm, MonHun would have been my choice for LAST summer but I guess it's ok since Animal Crossing is here, too, and I'm playing it now. Also, I know Fire Emblem: Awakening did well for the survival of the franchise but it's the most shallow and forgettable story in the FE universe. It's as if Intelligent Systems had to dumb down the story for a new audience. It's a good thing they're working on something else; S.T.E.A.M., which looks promising as Nintendo's answer to Borderlands. NLife should only include 2014 games on this list. Really? FE:A came out in 2013 and you're not putting Kirby 3DS on this list? And MonHun3U is the reason I bought a Vita so I could play Freedom Unite which is nice but really needed the updated controls the IOS version received (ie. Lock-on camera).

Free-to-play, or not; I just don't know how excited I am about a submarine shooter although I will say it sounds more interesting than a lot of eshop titles. For eshop, the best games are the retail ones when they go on sale ;)

It looks like the gym challenges haven't been updated. A graphical makeover is not enough! Regarding Roxanne's gym: Really? Another gym setting in a museum? I hope it's not like Heartgold/Soulsilver where it was just a graphical update with nothing really new added (ok a small new area but it was no Sevii Islands). Anyways, I'm looking forward to berry plots all over the world again! And contests!

ollietaro commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

I love that when they go with a budget developer, it ends up being a better game. No console developer wants to put their heart and soul into making film-based games b/c they don't have to and it's a waste of time. WayForward didn't have to, either but it was probably a big cheque for them and they want to build a great portfolio.

@stalepie2 It seems like Sony has abandoned the Vita in comparison to the love Nintendo gives to the 3DS but the Vita is getting some love by being linked to the PS4 for second-screen (read:Wii U-style) gaming. Personally, I would like to get the Vita, as well b/c not only do you have access to Vita games but also many PSP and PSOne titles.

@stalepie2 Wow, that's nice of you to consider gamers of other systems. Vita already has a decent selection of dungeon-crawlers but map-making is better suited to the dual-screened 3DS, don't you think? And it's even better on the 3DS XL. Sure, the Wii U is another possibility. It would be nice to see HD environments in an Etrian game. I'm perfectly fine with the 3DS visuals.

ollietaro commented on Guild Quests Could Change the Way We Enjoy Mon...:

I spent so many hours in the Moga Woods that my quest progression was so slow but I didn't mind b/c I loved the idea of just wandering around never knowing what to expect. Ofc now I only play G-rank quests b/c I'm just too familiar with the High Rank Moga Woods but it was a wonderful experience.

It's kind of not a spoiler since it was announced a while ago that all 3 Etrian DS games would be remade for 3DS. I'm personally really looking forward to the upcoming Etrian Odyssey game with the Persona coat of paint, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Looks freaky! (In a good way). Dungeon-crawlers are really popping up and they're all pretty fantastic games.

ollietaro commented on Monster Hunter Team Discusses Continuing Evolu...:

@HappyHappyist That's not a game glitch. I strongly think that was intentional by the developers. It just adds the extra challenge of making sure to trap the monster before it leaves. And if it does, you can still try to dung bomb it back into the area. I keep hunting until a monster limps away to their sleep area and then set the trap as close as possible to them while they're asleep. You have to wait until their tracking spot on the map stops moving before you enter their sleep area otherwise you will startle them. I use the MH3U Helper app for android it tells you the start and sleep areas of every monster.

Question: Can you port an SNES ROM in .smc format to PetitCom and play the game through it? I would just like to play the Japan-only translated Fire Emblem SNES ROMs on my 3DS. I guess what I'm asking is: Can PetitCom work as an emulator as well?

ollietaro commented on Review: Mario Tennis Open (3DS):

I don't understand why they would rush this game out, axe the RPG element, and not even release a Wii U version. What's going on these days? The N64 and GBC Mario Tennis games were released together, and similar to the GCN and GBA games. The handheld ones are both fantastic RPGs and now this? I didn't buy this one. Speak with your dollars.
