@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.

I watched it. Honestly kind of weirds me out with the flashy special effects (and I am normally all for flashy special effects) maybe it's because it's not quite flashy enough, like Frontier. Or the general aesthetic of Monster Hunter doesn't really fit it or something, feels kind of like the way I do watching videos of God Eater, except in more primitive civilization. Don't think I can bother putting in the effort to grinding there either since it's probably mostly recycled content again (I mean this is kind of how Monster Hunter works, but yeah.)

I feel like that trailer barely showed anything. More like a showcase for the new attacks than anything. I may be way off, but I think that capcom is holding back a ton of new content right now

I was so excited for this, and I don't think it will affect the gameplay too much, This has completely convinced me to get a new 3DS XL, I am so excited. Hopefully it get's released over here soon.

I'm not a huge MH fan or anything but the attacks are definitely super stylish

 

 

and I'm pretty sure this is just a "hey, have a first impression" video, it'll probably have plenty of new content etc. and perhaps some other new features besides changes/enhancements to the attacks and skills and stuff that we haven't seen

 

at the same time I think XT is right in that the core of the game will probably be the same ol' MH people like, or whatever

 

also I will almost always say "X" as in "ex" because it sounds cooler to me leave me alone okay

Dang, I'm really hyped now. I should consider actually playing 4U sometime so I can justify buying X...

Same, actually. Cross is a sillier subtitle than X is.

Or wait for X as the latest monster hunter game is typically also the best?

Perhaps we should petition capcom to drop the cross in the West? X(ex) is a cooler title here anyway.

I just realized something that is maybe going to disappoint some of you. The original versions of MH games rarely make it to the west. We get the G version(not complaining, I'd rather not buy a game twice) so it may be a year or two till we get this. Unless they're forgoing the G version this time because of new mechanics(unlikely. The original MH4 also had new mechanics)

I feel like having it pronounced X would imply it's the 10th game in the series or something.

 

Or wait for X as the latest monster hunter game is typically also the best?

It's too far away to bother waiting. Might as well contain some hype by playing what's available(and unfinished.)

that's very true. but some people are super patient when they get excited about something. personally i have a hard time with waiting, especially for something that i know i'll enjoy. the only thing i'm disappointed about right now is that they didn't add tonfas. i saw some video of someone using tonfas in frontier, and they look super fun. could be the mechanics won't fit with a handheld though.

I absolutely despise the "hype" stage. It completely destroys any desire for productivity for the sake of trying to get what little scraps we can, whether that be new information(that we will learn about when we actually play/watch/whatever the thing anyway) or fairly meaningless discussion (given how too little is usually known by everyone participating.)

 

And you can totally see me doing it right now with FE:IF and sticking to this board like there's nothing else in my life worth living for, goddamn it I'm such an idiot. FUCK YOU HUMAN PSYCHE, FUCK YOU!!!

woah there bud, calm down you're falling into the trap

 

but yeah I think I understand the sentiment, building hype is so important and yet it's kind of abused and in the mean time we just cling to these tiiiny clips and tiiiny pieces of information, like take all the talk on LoZ and stuff with just one trailer and a tiny bit of game-footage at the video game awards or whatever... it's kind of crazy lol, and it can be borderline annoying when companies try to spread hype over too long and a time and we just kind of suffer/have shallow discussions about things in the mean time, lol

Really interested to see what exactly they bring over from the frontier series. I really wouldn't mind if they also used this as a chance to try and bring the frontier series to NA. It has some interesting stuff compared to regular series, namely the large scale multi part quests that features up to 16 players for one quest.

They've been thinking about bringing frontier to the west, but they have done pretty real worries that it won't go over well. You have to grind 5 times as much to get armor/weapons, other than the monthly fee there are item packs that are basically necessary(cheap, but stuff like that isn't very welcome in the United states at least), and along a few other things it would be extremely expensive to port and maintain.

yeah I kind of understand not bringing Frontier over, hopefully MHX comes over and fills in a bit of the void of not having the Frontier series, haha

More MHX details

http://nintendoevery...sters-palicoes/

Better hope this game comes out in N.A. before 2017. Would help if the 3DS didn't die soon or else some companies (in this case, Capcom) might be less willing to localize games thinking that it's too late in the console's life cycle, lol. that would be pretty silly. I'm pretty sure MH4U sold well enough to warrant localizing more of the games, at least the good ones.

I love how most of these "new details" are mostly seen in the trailer. Happy about brachydios being confirmed though. He's easily my favorite fight.

haha, I guess not everyone is that insightful or something, idk

 

http://nintendoevery...nter-x-details/

 

I do like the general direction this game is going since it just seems slightly more appealing to me, but I hope it keeps its m ore hardcore elements that really drags people in/is what made the series great. like, trying to appeal to more people is good, but I hope the overall quality and nature of the game stays about where it's at, or something
