SnS is still one of the best weapons for applying status effects and got a damage buff from Tri.
LBGs are more practical then HBGs against monsters that move around a lot, because their main shots used to cause damage (Elemental and explosive) don't require you to be at a certain range in order to deal full damage, plus there's seemingly nothing that can rival the sheer damage output of rapid fired dragon shots. Their higher ammo efficiency also makes them better at applying status effects.

Bowguns are actually the best status weapons, as unlike melee weapons, their shots cause status effects 100% of the time, as opposed to around 25%, so you'll know exactly how many times you need to hit a monster before it works.
They can also use multiple status effects, so they can keep a monster locked down for a really long time by inflicting each status in succession (IE, paralyzing, KOing, then putting it to sleep so someone can put a trap under it). Pretty much all of the speed hunts for item farming I see Japanese players doing have a light bowgun user just for this purpose.
Anyone pick up Etrian Odyssey IV? If so, how is it? I'm thinking of picking it up.

Offical Pokemon Facebook page teasing about some Pikachu news. I'm hoping it's the Pikachu 3DS XL because I'd be willing to get rid of my ambassador 3DS for that beauty.

Well a Gates to Infinity commercial did have a moment where a kid was seen holding the Pikachu 3DSXL, so I would assume it's about the Pikachu 3DSXL

Hey guys, do you think it's worth it to buy a 3DS XL over the regular 3DS? Pros? Cons? I was already planning to buy a 3DS.. but with the recent announcement of the Pikachu 3DS XL .__. I'm conflicted.. I always thought the 3DS was big and bulky

I also hear that the 3DS XL's 3D effects pop out more, but I don't know from first hand experience.
The 3DS is smaller, cheaper and more easily transported. The XL feels sturdier and much better in the hand. The screens really are a matter of preference - graphics look some degree better on the XL's larger screens, but not so much better that it should be the sole reason you go one over the other.
The 3DSXL design sure is sturdier, but the glass on the 3DS lid is a pretty nice design feature. I own both, but boy do I prefer the 3DS in terms of looks over the XL.
I've got them both as well, and I used the XL exclusively for a while, but I've switched back to the 3DS now. The crisper image and smaller size did it for me, I just wish the buttons were the same as on the XL.
The XL is much better for playing regular DS games than the original. The system itself also doesn't collect fingerprints on every surface like its smaller counterpart. Although if that kind of thing bothers you, you can easily find a shell/skin/case for it.
