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 …

    Kirito was an issue for you? And ‘trap’…? Did you accidentally masturbate to him thinking he was a girl before you saw the series or something? Seems like the problem isn’t so much the series, but more likely your penis led you into dangerous territory and you need to bring it to a psychiatrist or a strip club and ‘talk things out.’ NOTE: Strip club and psychiatrist have same effect.

    I agree, I look forward to more. Strangely what made me fascinated by the series is I watched it fully expecting the fanservice to be a focus, and found myself gratefully forgetting most of the time they were even intentionally bottomless. Even the panty-stealing episode was more focused on the humor than the sexuality of it, even though by its very nature it was overtly sexual. As soon as I realized I had begun to forget, I realized how much I enjoyed it. The second season may have been a …

    And a stop-over in North of Minoc in Ultima Online, they’ll adjust the forest area where I leveled on deer and farmed for leather to now be a stage.

  • Hatsune Miku Invades MapleStory:
    Hatsune Miku in WOW…? I can just see her appear as this dimensional boss summoning and her vox’d notes each damage a specific class depending on the note as she sings, so she’d be a complete bitch of a boss because it depends what song she is singing how much damage she does to what players and how quickly.

  • Otaku Still Revere Ritsu’s Birthday:
    It wasn’t really very generic. The scenarios were generic that were covered in the show, but anyone who sat silently and let themselves blend into it found something there that really does last. 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 …
