    I love Monster Hunter Tri, and have spent many, many hours with that game.
    But if you want to experience what the game is all about, you need to play the actual game. Capcom released a horrible demo for it.

    Also, Evan what was your favorite weapon in the game?
    While many like to choose the most powerful, I liked just having fun with whatever I thought was good enough for the job. I’ve been mostly switching between the Switch Axe and Hammers.
    Switch Axe for slicin’ & dicin’. Hammer for da K.O.’s.

    Been crazy busy lately but another super enjoyable episode.

    I suppose the one thing I would want to say that stuck out most to me is …

    Noah, I played the MH3 demo and I HATED it. Hated it, hated it, hated it. I played for a while and was like “wow. so glad I could demo this so I can never even buy it.”

    However, my bro-in-law was gonna get the game and I really wanted to play something online with him since he lives so far away. So, I reluctantly bought the game and…

    500+ HOURS LATER…

    suffice to say, I loved it and the demo was NOT a very accurate representation of the real gameplay.

    So, yea, Noah, my man… it’s probably a little late for the MH3 train, but, consider MH4 if/when we get it! How can 85 billion* Japanese gamers be wrong??

    *give or take several dozen billion

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t like the MH3 demo. I’m still uncertain I’ll ever get into MH, but I appreciate hearing what you think of it. Thanks NinSage!

    Hi Everyone,

    I added everyone above this post please add me if you haven’t already.
    First it’s not just nostalga for game soundtracks since there are many songs that just dont work out of context; like zeros theme or a link to the past boss music.
    As for pokemon conquest its one of those games were you need to beat it before the fun realy begins. Without spoilers or posting an essay once you beat the main story there are new missions that open up that are more fun than the main arch; and buy it before septmber so you can get the free dlc.
    Lastly there are 2 games you talked about in the past that i truely loved. Solatorobo and locks quest i was so sad that solatorobo didn’t have a third story.

    Nintendo Network Communities

    The Community feature from Mario Kart 7 should be included for all online games for all of Nintendo’s systems by being implemented at the system level within the firmware of the 3DS and Wii U. The Communities feature should be just as ingrained into the Nintendo Network online experience as the MiiVerse. The benefits that the Communities feature provide are deceptively significant.

    There are several web sites that host online communities through blogs, forums, podcasts, and other communication methods. When members of these communities want to play games together, they usually have to post their Friend Codes up on the site using these methods of communication. Then, they must enter all of those posted codes into their systems. Next, they may schedule when they will be playing so they can actively look for each other and connect their games.

    With Mario Kart 7’s Communities feature, that process is vastly improved. When members of these communities want to pay Mario Kart 7 together, each community posts its single Community Code. Multiple codes are only necessary if the communities want to host various modes or rule sets for play. Then, the members enter the Community Code and are able to simply join into the community play without having to enter many Friend Codes from many players. They may still schedule when they will be playing, but now it will be possible to just jump into the session at any time regardless of how many others are in play.

    The Communities feature also allows the players within these communities to play with each other without having to divulge their individual Friend Codes on the Internet. This benefit should not be undervalued. It is reasonable to feel protective of one’s Friend Code. Many more players will likely join in the community games when they no longer need to put their personal Friend Code out there. The less intrusive Community Codes should help to grow Nintendo’s online population.

    The Communities feature works spectacularly well for Mario Kart 7. It is, frankly, shocking to not be hearing about its inclusion as a standard feature of the Nintendo Network and MiiVerse. Its integration into the 3DS and Wii U at the system level should be a given, common sense feature that is only a matter of time. Nintendo thought about including the Communities feature in the 3DS’s firmware, but they did not have the time to implement it before launch. So, they put it in Mario Kart 7 instead. The Communities feature should be integrated into the 3DS’s firmware through a system update, and it should be included within the Wii U’s firmware from day one. Hopefully, this will come to pass when Wii U launches, and the Nintendo Network account system is set up to work with both the Wii U and the 3DS.

    I added all of the friend codes posted so far. Sorry for the delay, but I was out of town for a bit. I believe NinSage is the only person who hasn’t added me yet.

    Also, thanks for all the great comments. We’ll definitely have a lot to talk about this week. And we all need to figure out some good community nights to play games since we’re all 3DS friends now.

    I actually have Monster Hunter 3, and I’ve grown to love it as I progress through the game. That being said, I have been surprised to see how low the production values on the game seem to be, MH3 feels like it is stuck in the past with its Sectioned off open world and its loading screens and semi-fixed camera. MH4 does need to show me more before I am willing to jump with on it, since they are already removing the underwater hunting (which I was quite fond of).

    But I have an entirely unrelated question for all of you guys. What do you think of Project X Zone? You all think its coming to the US? I’ve been salivating over it recently, and it would make me really peeved if it ended up staying in Japan.
