I'm stuck on the dual jin high rank quest in Portable 3rd (I didn't actually try it since I wanted to play Unite for a while), currently playing through Unite and played Tri a bit. IMO Tri was one of the worst MH games in the whole series, it felt so empty especially when compared to the PSP ones. MH3U looks like a huge improvement and MH is my favourite game series, so I've already preordered it. Only a week left till it gets released! In Europe anyway..
MH3U is going to be released tomorrow!
I've pre-ordered my copy at Gamestop and as a bonus I'll receive a special code to download the strategy guide for free. I can't wait to play this

Well, in fairness, one of my buds staying with me will have it for 3DS. So we may indulge for that reason. But we have 7 people overall so maybe something more party-oriented will be appropriate.
Has anyone had time to try out the Wii U and 3DS version both? I'm wondering about the consensus on either.
And on that note, the Wii U Pro controller's ZR/ZL buttons do allow you to rotate the camera, which is excellent.
Hopefully my order of Ultimate from Shopto should come tomorow, since it's already been dispatched.
I'm dying right now. Trultimate is out, and I have no money. ;-;
Aw well, I guess I'll just have to wait.
So I had a question for you Monster Hunter veterans. I'm thinking about picking this up, as unlike some I found the demo quite intriguing even though the camera controls left much to be desired. I've done some research and watched a few let's plays and have a general feel for the game. However my only issue is if I would be able to enjoy the game in the long-term. From what I could gather, the game is a lot more fun when you have people to play with. I know there is a decent single player campaign but at some point, killing monsters, especially ones you have to kill over and over again to get materials for crafting, can get a bit stale/repetitive soloing. I don't have any friends that are much into gaming, let alone own Nintendo systems. If I do get this game it will have to be the 3DS version. Would I be okay for the most part or should I just hold off for a year or so until I can get a Wii U and the Wii U version?
The game was actually originally made for 3DS and then ported to the Wii U. The crappy textures of the Wii U version due to being a HD port are more annoying than the blurry font of the 3DS version. Besides, who reads in Monster Hunter? xDthe game was originally designed for the console anyway, so the text isn't blurry like it is on the 3DS.
I don't have a lot of friends that play MH either but I got the 3DS version either way since I'm primarly a handheld gamer and Monster Hunter is a handheld-only game for me. Don't think that playing the game solo will make it a bad game though, I've played most of my MH games solo and it's still my favourite game series. But when I eventually get a Wii U I'll use that relay tool thing or buy the Wii U version.
Are you sure? I'm pretty sure they've just reused the Wii textures... Which look good enough to me, but I've only got a 27" TV.The game was actually originally made for 3DS and then ported to the Wii U.

And I'm not sure where the 3DS version got it's textures from, but the Wii U version gets everything directly from the 3DS version, not the Wii version. Found this example http://www.capcom-unity.com/jashugan...item/143171963
No one will complain about the claw, the claw is perfect. That's why it was developed in the first place. Being able to adjust the camera the way you want at all times is incredibly important, it can mean the difference between life and death, some monsters move around very quickly, sometimes you have to fight more than one monster. There are a lot of scenarios where you want to be attacking and observing your surroundings.Using items requires one press of a button which only takes barely a second so it's not like you couldn't move the camera during the flexing anyway. I didn't even need to use the touch screen camera since the target camera is already more than enough to keep an eye on the monster. People will always complaining about controls whether it's the claw or touch screen. hell, some people even complain about dual sticks controls just because you can't attack while moving the camera. I personally am fine with most control schemes, except for the Wiimote + nunchuk. That was crap.
That's interesting, and it now makes little sense why the text is so blurry on the 3DS.And I'm not sure where the 3DS version got it's textures from, but the Wii U version gets everything directly from the 3DS version, not the Wii version.

Apparently there's a way to fix the smudged text look on the 3DS version? http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news...his-Simple-Tip
