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.

    @ 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 …

    Do you have a reference citing her refusing to voice for KyoAni?

    Kyoani’s done stuff that’s not just guys. Free! was basically just K-on with guys who acted like girls. They weren’t even gay, just… effeminate for no real reason. Like episode 1 Makoto was just this pansy bitch clinging to Haru’s shirt in a dark building. It made no sense and felt completely fake. So much so that it was pathetic to just about everyone so they pulled him back over the next episodes to being the *reaction then smile warmly* character. Free was decent but annoyed me because …

  • Final Fantasy XV GamesCom Trailer Too Emotional:
    The experiences are stronger in many ways however. The reality is what you experienced in your formative years as a teenager on SNES and NES and all that will not happen again. There was a bit more imagination necessary with the worlds because voices were put to the characters in your head, and the scenes had to be pictured. But put simply, I love being able to see what directors, animators, and creators can create that I would never have imagined. I know what I would envision, that’s why I …

  • Final Fantasy XV GamesCom Trailer Too Emotional:
    Mass Effect, Spec Ops: The Line, Witcher… just look a bit and take your head out of your ass basically and you’ll find great things. I’ve said it before, if you go into a world, whether it be a game or an anime, with an expectation, all it will be is ruined. Start by going in with the intention of having fun, and you’ll basically reach a point quickly where you flow with the story and characters like a river. It’ll become harder to get disappointed, you’ll have more fun, you’ll find fun in …

    I scrolled through the images before reading what the fuck was happening with an expression of confusion I didn’t realize I had until I went back until I read the description. And then promptly lost my shit when the context clicked in my head for all pictures at once. Then I said a silent prayer to god internet for its grace.
