    Okay, sorry for the double post, but new demos for Europe are up. Castlevania and MonHun3 Ultimate to be specific. Haven't played the latter yet, but I have played a bit of Mirror of Fate. And you know what? Screw the haters. I love Igavania as much as the next guy, don't get me wrong, but this new game, it might just be worthy of being a handheld Vania. The combat is solid, actually does work with the 2D feel of the game, and its not as easy as things are. Dodging works, and there is some difficulty in bringing enemies down. Abilities unlock with each level it seems, and EXP isn't gained easily. Starts you out at level 12 instead of 1, so I can see the game being really hard at the beginning, and in a good way. Some graphical niggles that are likely ironed out already, but otherwise its solid for now. Exploration verdict will come later, just started playing it. Exploration on first contact seems a bit simple. Not overly simple to the point of boring, but simple that will likely unfold into something. If the game opens up like this for all 3 characters I would not mind, as even with the 1 character I'm having a lot of fun. Willy nilly dropping from top to bottom has been taken out, if you drop all the way down you lose health. I like stuff like that, so this is all subjective of course. Scratch that, it does open up after the first level. Objective marker is to guide you, but there are sidetracking areas if you want. The demo sold me for sure. Music is gonna need headphones though, 3DS speaker compression is ruining a solid soundtrack.

    2013 is an insane year for the 3DS in Japan. All it's really lacking is Final Fantasy when it comes to megaton JRPG series.

    Finally getting my 3DS back from repairs tomorrow, hopefully. I'm going to have to try out EO4 and MH3U, even though I wasn't really hooked by Tri.

    Forget everything about Tri. It's a bad game. Missing a lot of content that's usually in MH.

    If you're basing that on the demo, farming for items and complex moves were somewhat missing from it, not the game itself. Unless I'm missing something...

    It had way less monsters than usual, not to mention only half the weapon types. You don't even start out with all the available weapon types at your disposal. It's just not very good.

    Are you talking about Tri, or MH3U demo that just got released?

    I've never played a Monster Hunter Game before I just downloaded the demo earlier today and played around with it for a while. Apart from it being just a typical demo I'm both impressed and dying to play the real thing. I messed around with all the classes except Dual Sword/Long Sword/Lance/and Heavy Bow just seeing what they all do and how well I am with them. I'm most likely going to get a CPP(I don't even care if this is the only game that uses it), but besides that I can't wait to play this game next month, that and getting Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

    I'm talking about Tri. MH3U is fine, despite the water controls being next to impossible without a CPP. I'm disappointed the water combat was put back in, since its incredibly cumbersome but it's too late now. I'll have to buy a CPP XL whenever they release here.

    If you're having trouble picking a weapon, Longswords are a great place to start. They're easy to use and are relatively forgiving. It's a good weapon to learn the game with, and then you can branch out later when you're more familiar with the monsters and environments.

    Well yea, it's coming out for the WiiU same as the 3DS. The WiiU is going to be the only one that can connect online, 3DS can only do local :P

    Although, perhaps the 3DS may be able to connect with the Wii U. They say it'll be done for the new Smash Bros game coming out for it too, so we could figure as such.

    The save files can be transferred between versions, can they not?

    In Japan, they're releasing some silly dongle that will let you play the 3DS version online, but you can only connect to a lobby created by a Wii U console. So that's as far as the 3DS can get in terms of online play for MH.

    It's still slightly disappointing for me since I don't have a WiiU
    ....oh well.

    I tried out the MH3U demo today.

    Having played Tri, I didn't have any issues taking down the two monsters available using a light bowgun (My preferred weapon in the original).

    I welcomed the addition of the ability to automatically turn the camera towards the monsters. It seems especially useful for underwater combat.

    Ha, I knew it.

    But remember. For some evil corporate reason, you can't turn it back on if you turn it off while playing a DS game.

    Its not an "evil "corporate reason" that you can't, its because the DS emulation does not support it thanks to the DSi being software based instead of hardware based.
