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.

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.

The graphics involved are something more and more companies are realizing fans don’t even know what they are asking for. For example you complain it doesn’t use enough of PS4’s processing power. What does that mean to the game exactly? What are you expecting exactly? There …

  • Tomoyo After Now on Steam Greenlight:
    I was told by a friend he didn’t like it because they basically screwed all the time and wanted more of a story to it. Based on that part of my thinks a censored version may be more nominal, and yet simultaneously I’m against cutting down on anything when the original was how they wanted it. Sadly this makes me even more curious.

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake: “We’ll Change What We Want!”:
    The loss of sales you are referring to is not because of the nature of their games or a loss in fanbase based on their actions alone. FF7 was an alignment of elements in gaming history that changed the world, not just the industry. The story and characters were not THAT amazing, however the delivery was completely solid enough to be beyond everyone’s expectations, even after FF6 pretty much set the bar for the ability to make a truly dark plot. What has changed is expectation and generations. …
