@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

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.

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.

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
