I'm excited for Swords & Soldiers 2. I almost bought the HD remaster but held out since they announced 2 and I have the first on WiiWare.

Also excited for Steamworld Heist.

That is true before and unless Capcom says otherwise it should be the same here. I bought MH3U  a year late and got all DLC at once.

They MIGHT also include paid DLC but it may just be in Japan and be similar to our "free" gift pack of extra potions and traps.

I'm sure it is, we already see it happening with the Marth re-release in April.

You are just spoiled because the past two months have had an unusually large number of Nintendo news stories due to the amiibo craze and the N3DS launch.

They are your Calico Pals!

It is a lot, but I feel it adds to the overall charm of the game. One of the cats even makes a crack about his speech being a pun of a pun so I look at it as self aware humor.

I hope we can do a pre-order of it like Gamestop did for Shulk.

More like Nintendo thinks this is exactly what people wanted in a Mario Paintball game so they called the job complete and declared the fans satisfied.

They can make the jump just fine in Middle and High School. That is when friend's exposing friends to the new electronics really kicks into high gear. I know a lot of people who discovered video games for the first time during this age range.

The problem for us (Nintendo fans) is that the exposure is for XBox/PStation titles, not Nintendo titles.

Depends on where you go. And stay very far away from the major Seattle areas during rush hour. It can be horrible in all directions. People are chill, and it does tend to be a more laid back area, except when driving in heavy traffic. People out here are not capable of driving in heavy urban roads and highways.

This is a gamer site, UncleBob. Of course no one can get over the VGChartz issue because WE only use credible sources in ALL discussions. Haven;t you seen Khush and BnM's detailed footnotes and citations in our highest bastion of news reporting, the Funhouse?

In all fairness, there is truly no harm in using it for friendly discussion. It helps frame the conversation.

I think it is interesting to see the sales break down for these games, no matter the source.

It's because of how spread out we are over here in the Northwest. So yes, everyone drives. Other than the cyclists who hog the roads and gum up traffic if they don't get their precious bike lanes.

Also, people in this area purposefully made the roads crappy and refused to improve or expand them thinking it would deter people from moving into the area... it didn't work and now no one wants to commit funds to fix the problem. They would rather waste billions of dollars to build a 10x over-budget light rail that will be terribly pathetic compared to other cities and let the worlds largest tunnel digger (rented from Japan, her name is Bertha) sit below Seattle for over a year because no body bothered to plan the route and READ the city blueprints to know where digger-stopping pipes have been since the 1920s.

The word of the day is COMPETENCY in Washington State.

Andy! You're dead! How could this happen? You had to much to live for! So much exploding to do!!

I was close to buying it on 360 so a Wii U port of Destiny would be a cool perk for me.

They are similar, but not exactly the same. Offline the star ranks do not increase your HR (hunter rank). The guild hall quests do raise your rank up to 8 (or whatever the highest star rank is in the guild hall). After you hit the highest level your HR increases as you earn HR points on quests. You were always earning these HR points but they were not advertised until after you beat the final urgent quest.

Because of this hidden accumulation, it is common for players to jump straight from HR 8 to HR 15-25. At that point it is more of a gamer score, though some advanced quests only unlock after you hit a certain high level.

In MH3U the Abyssal Lagiacrus only appeared to people HR70 and higher.

Too late, I yelled it first.

I'm a bow user and I mount like crazy. You can jump off of ledges to mount monsters. If you are talking about Basarios he was surprisingly easy to beat with mounts. The level I fought him on had a nice ledge in the middle of the area and I would lure him to the lower part and then climb up and jump onto him. I think some monsters may have an extra vulnerability to these types of attacks.

Rathalos can now be an epic fight. He will hunt you while you are climbing and claw or fireball you before you get a chance to jump off and attack him.

Mannypon, typically the forge will not show weapons requiring monsters you have not fought. The exception is for the parts from monsters you get through the Wycoon Trader. When you unlock parts in the trader, the game treats it as if you have beaten that monster and shows all of the things that can be made with those traded parts.

Congrats of getting the game, Phil! I am guessing this is a birthday present?

I realized that I never went and entered everyone's FC into my 3DS so I will do that now. Badger me if I missed you and want me to add you.

I know he was old, but that was unexpected.

I'm home sick today with an awful head cold so I'll probably go between hunting and sleeping all day. Let me know if anyone wants to hunt.

Don't we call those cake-days around these parts? Or is that just a reddit thing?

Happy birthday, Phil! Nice use of Perry Bible Fellowship too!

Considering Disney controls the Star Wars property EA may not have a choice. Disney may want to ensure maximum exposure and Nintendo IS a top pick for family/kids titles.

hmm.... Rock Band 2015? Minecraft?

I would be happy with both of these being the surprise title.

Brown chicken brown cow!

This. Means. War.

I will enter your town and chop down your trees, dig up your flowers, and terrorize your villagers.

Are they monsters from the old game? You can get some of those parts from the Wyporium Trader. Also, make sure you go on those random expeditions. That seems to unlock new monsters over time.
