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.

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 …

Is it the greatest thing ever? Nope. But it sure was a lasting, memorable moment of seeing characters that didn’t seem to be created as an archetype just for the sake of an archetype. They were created for the sake of a personality, which quite honestly was and still is rather rare. Azumanga Daioh was …

The best part of being an anime fan as long as I have is that I realize now beyond a shadow of a doubt that anyone who calls a series shit and does not have the ability, care, or intellect to expound on the statement is not only wrong, but worthless to whatever conversation that could have started anyway.

Please, Compile Hearts… Please… I’m begging you. Stop sucking. I want to like your shit. Your concepts are decent and you can do it. I know you can. Just STOP releasing SHIT! Make SOMETHING OF QUALITY! I’ve bought your shit constantly like a cosmic joke hoping you improve, but I stopped 3 games ago because you just never fucking learn. I can only sit here and hope this one isn’t going to be as shit. I don’t listen to reviews ever, but this company’s games are the only ones I do. I have to …
