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 …

    The reason it’s popular is because he does get the bitches. He’s unapologetically horny but also instinctively intelligent, and despite some surprise when he wakes up with a naked girl next to him, he graciously accepts the tits like a man. BOOSTOOOO!!

  • Tokyo Metro Mascot Panned For Being Too Cute:
    Objectively, even I have to admit it’s not about being too cute, she looks like her pencil skirt is binding her crotch so tight it’s caused her to orgasm mid-stance. The flushed face and the arm pressing her breast while touching her face don’t help. The image totally looks like she’s in a moment in a JAV where the vibrator that’s hidden has done its work. This is an instance where toning it down a tad is not an unreasonable prospect considering her purpose. I can’t read the Japanese, but it …

  • WWW.Working! “A Brand New Cast!”:
    That was the intention, it was ‘overplayed’ but the characters appropriately reacted and grew to the fact that nothing was changing, or at least their perceived nothing was changing. The timing was actually quite good, once you finally are like ‘dammit, bitch! Stop!’ they then have something acknowledging it and growing. Which was excellent work.

    Ami and Yumi are still around, but the show Hihi Puffy AmiYumi was most definitely a gimmick for marketing them in other regions including the US. At the time they weren’t really known except for the Teen Titans intro, which was also kind of a gimmick, but one that worked well because it was catchy. Baby Metal though already has mainstream western approval and has appeared on the Tonight Show, so they’re definitely a different situation, so I’m curious what they’ll do with this show. Points to …

    The definition can be challenged all it wants, but they’re right. It’s not anime unless it’s made primarily in Japan based on Japanese conceptualization. ‘Anime style’ is separate, and there’s nothing stopping outsourcing of a decent level of inbetweening to Korea and such, but the core concepts and creation must remain Japanese. In this sense, Boondocks could technically be called an anime, due to its animation being from Production IG, however its core concepts do not exist as Japanese, so it …
