Comment on Monster Hunter 3rd Portable PS3 Excites Fans by HouseLife:

Avatar of HouseLife

All I want is a plot… I say with hesitation, even a mediocre one. A world of battling constant monsters may as well be similar to looking at an excel spread sheet with pretty graphics if there’s no pay off of character development and at least a somewhat compelling narrative.

Monster Hunter to me is like all those god damn MMO trailers out there. You watch it and it’s this unbelievably excellent trailer with awesome characters doing beautiful moves, you start liking them and the often compelling premises, only to find out that it’s an MMO and the majesty and potential of this incredible trailer just died as fast as it was born.

God.
Fucking.
Damit.

    @ 711 I don’t play MMOs. Anymore at least. I played five of them. Never touched WOW, but I do trust blizzard to bring up a great plot and apparently they now have the technology with which to give MMO players their own story even if others are around from what I’ve heard. That definitely intrigues me, but now it’s too late to play from the very beginning apparently. And the ‘read a book’ argument angers me to no end. You’re correct that if an MMO is the choice, a book makes more sense, but that …

    That is a bit of a representation, though. That part is not as clearly conveyed because as with most artistic works they don’t like to hold your hand through it. The fact that it can represent both elements of it being a comment on anime’s spiraling, and also some people interpreting it the other way, whether ironically or realistically, is mainly a mirror for you to perceive how you think of reality. For me it’s showing what could be for anyone in the otaku lifestyle, the blatant nature of the …

    Hey, look. It’s what Pokemon Snap should have been. The funniest part is I did game testing for D3, and I can already see what bugs would have to be looked for… and they would simultaneously be required to not be written up as clipping bugs, nor written up for ratings violations…

  • Top 20 Anime With The Most Gorgeous Seiyuu Casts:
    For a time, and thanks largely to being introduced to Circle Kuusou Zikken’s One Piece Nami doujinshi, I consider Nami to be one of the hottest girls in anime. It evolved because she’s a great character at least as far as I have seen, and that rounded her out to be gorgeous for me. That is for much of the early style, Oda and the anime got rather strange over time, same with Bleach, everything stopped looking as good to me. But my entire perception of how hot she was was peppered by that …

    Okay, I admit, I did laugh pretty hard for some reason at the unabashed quick but steady degeneration into blatant hentai pics. Bravo for the creative and arousing pseudo-troll. You would not be arrested in the UK for this one.

  • Locodol Bouncy Bikini BD Extra:
    @ anon 23:59 That is partially true. Although there has been some truly excellent, original anime that has been created in the recent years too, so throwing the baby out with the bathwater is just a sad generalization. There may be many clones, but that is not limited to anime. It’s every genre, and plus the reality is the animes are not all that bad. The clones are here because it worked the first time. The only reason it didn’t keep working as well is because we’ve seen it before, it’s still …
