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.

Plus keep in mind it was a good story… kind of. It’ll allow a new generation to get the BD with both so different people can see it in the method they want. Those of us who can hear the nuances in the Japanese and enjoy its performance will enjoy it, but these dubs are quite good actually. As much as I liked the series overall it shit all over itself in character development, but it was good up until how they ended it. It still holds up today overall. Now that I’ve seen the fanparody …
- Metroid Fan Remake Hit With DMCA Notice:
Yes, if you do not defend your copyright at least in some form officially, you do have the chance to lose it. What should have been done was Nintendo backed this with support officially in a similar way to Square Enix TRIES to do with their community voting system. Not entirely hands on, but with support and helping with assets while even charging a for it a bit. There’s nothing really stopping them from working in tandem. It would allow them to shut down projects they deem unworthy of the …
