Comment on Monster Hunter 3rd Portable PS3 Excites Fans by 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. 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 …

    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 …

    I have to admit, Mana Khemia somehow feels different. I felt more for that game than any of the Iris games, the way certain characters’ stories just kind of dropped on you unlike any other game I’ve played of the same type really made me like them that much more. Especially the main girl, whom of course I won’t spoil. I have never before or since seen characters react to that type of history that way, the character themselves included.

  • Atelier Shallie Gameplay Quite Tantalizing:
    The models are fine, I’m not certain what the issue is. The textures, lighting, and base model fit beautifully in the world, and have for a few games. They could do with a few more polies in the hands and more detailed areas outside the face here and there, but by and large there’s nothing really weak about them at all. Other creatures and the environments though have been a bit hit-and-miss. I will admit I’m glad Ayesha finally made a non-floaty jump.

    I have to say, I truly loved Totori and her story’s buildup. It was surprisingly well done for what I expected. I was very surprised by how little she seemed to rely on overt moe elements to be an enjoyable character. Not to say they weren’t present mind you, but she was not dumb as a rock like Rorona, and for the most part was the moe equivalent of a “Why am I the normal one here…?” character.
