Monster Hunter Tri

 Pages PREV 1 . . . 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
 

Monsters can and do hurt eachother, FlameSpeak. You can't tell because you can't see their health. Just wait til Rathalos kills Rathian, then you see. (happens a lot in pre-titles)

Another example is if the qurupeco summons a monster, and it decides it doesn't like the qurupeco very much and beats the stuffing out of the stupid bird. Or gets the stuffing beat out of it (Great jaggi anyone?).

Like all reviews I thought they were pretty bang on in listing some of the game's flaws. This was my first leap into the Monster Hunter foray and while I didn't quite spend 10 hours doing the tutorial quests, it does take some getting used to. Gathering, sharpening, getting committed to heavy weapons all take some time to get used to, especially with the game's early crappy weapons.

Yahtzee's job here isn't to tell you why a game is perfect and why you should buy it, every other magazine including the massively corrupt Famitsu does that (giving this game a 40 lol). However, if you find merit in the game, and enough depth, and you switched to Great Sword instead of using SnS early on you'd find that MH3 is a great game. Level 55 now and still going!

He really didn't raise any of the real issues with the game, Justin. Many of which would've made hilarious jokes. Also, SnS is playable. If done right.

For the people commenting on a "10-hour tutorial". No, the tutorial isn't ten hours long. The "tutorial" is half an hour, tops. This is because there's so many core concepts to cover and nobody seems to read the instruction manual.

This has never been about Yahtzee not liking a game. It's about him playing almost none of the game at all, making the game seem like it is exclusively about gathering supplies and not hunting monsters as the game title would flat-out tell you. He actually flat-out says that it's NOT about hunting monsters.

Again, calling for the escapist to review their contract with this clown. They paid him to do a job, he didn't do it.

I bought Monster Hunter Tri and I have to say I had a similar experience to Yahtzee's. I had just spent the better part of an hour alternating between plinking away at the monster and dying when I finally killed the darn thing. It was the happiest i had been since I started the game.

Than I saw the next mission. this time I had to capture the same dang monster which took me so long to just kill. I wasn't thrilled, but I figured I should try to beat it at least. So I started the mission. I died the first few times, but I knew when he was close to death and I started to learn his routes of escape. So I finally got the patterns down and took the 5 minutes it takes to set the trap, and I finally caught the monster in it, and I figured I had it finally beat. Since the mission didn't end I immediately started whacking it with my sword. The dam thing stayed down for about 10 seconds and then popped up and continued on its merry way.

At that point I placed my controller down and turned off my Wii. I could stand the weapon degradation and the constant need to sharpen, I could stand the need to run off and eat something every time a monster lightly tapped you, and I could even stand the fact that it took a half hour to take down the dang monster, and I could stand the lack of monster health bars. The last straw was the fact that the capture system was mindless guesswork that would cost you a half hour every time you dinged the dam thing 1 time too many or had dinged it 1 time too few. This was the point where the game felt less challenging and more like the game designers being cruel.

Actually, the above mentioned post does make a good point. I do not recall capturing a monster being properly explained.

Capturing a monster requires three steps:
1: Weaken It!
A good sign that a monster is weak enough to capture is when it starts limping. If you plan on being super awesome at capturing, there is a skill that will cause the monster's DOT on the map to start blinking when they are capturable.

2: Trap It!
This is pretty straight forward.

3: Tranq It!
This is the key part I do not recall ever being mentioned in the game. When the monster is trapped, throw Trang Bombs at its face. An average of two will do it.

THERE YOU GO! One Captured Monster.

Yahtzee has just owned you all, MH3 fanboys. And apparently, with Icy Hot on the end. Also, why would I play a tutorial for an hour and a half? I can't stand one that lasts more than 15 minutes! "0mg! the Tut0rial am 0nly 90 minnets lawng u n00b!!!1111one1111eleven111" says the fanboys who don't know how to talk to females or type and think that their World of Warcraft character is "Uber Secksy Hawt lol". A tutorial should be " Here is how you walk, here's how you move the camera, here's how you attack, and here's how you interact." and fills you in when special things are nessecary.
Like Yahtzee said, up yours with icy hot on the end.

Err... umm... How do I say this?
I am studying psychology. Let me explain something to you. The only people (give or take a few) who say things like the bold are people who have heard that enough, directed at them and/or their social group. The only people I ever see in real life saying sh!t like that are the typical 'nerds'. Whenever they fight, they bring up cr@p like that. Don't incriminate yourself with unnecessary slander. Not to mention, "Yahtzee has just owned you all, MH3T fanboys." You just nailed yourself with your own accusations.
I have never seen "minnets", "lawng", "1eleven1", or "Secksy Hawt". How long did it take you to coin those? You realize that you are one of the many morons here who hold Yahtzee as their god. Your anger is coming from us saying that Yahtzee did not give MH3T the credit it deserves do to an incomplete review. You're getting pissed because we don't agree with your Yahtzee. You are pathetic.
Play the game and you'll see MH's tutorial is like how you say they should be. Not to mention, there's an in game and booklet control manual; the 'tutorial' isn't necessary to play. Read the controls and play you game master.

Again, you idiots are coming into a Red(Yahtzee's sh!tty 'review') vs Blue(the Defense of soma in the manifestation of a videogame) debate and arguing green(Stop saying Yahtzee didn't do his jooo-buh!)

And ps. The majority of veteran MH players are girls, at least that I've seen.

@Podunk: Congrats. You have to ability to know exactly what something is without actually having anything to do with it.
I pray to what ever god you care for that you realize that that was sarcasm.

Read an article written by people who take their jobs seriously. Pick any one, or read them all. Yahtzee looks like a fool next to these. Why is he the only one who thought badly of this game? Take note: the critic and users scores have been higher than the domain score EVERY TIME. For the slower readers, that means these are the lowest scores on the review. Most of these are out of ten.

These are only a few of the many highscores MH3 got from various game reviewers. The game averages an 8.7 in the west. Averages 10 in Japan. Its bigger than Pokemon in the place with the most gamers in the world.
It got so many PERFECT scores that there are museums, conventions, and even RAMEN dedicated to it.

Read this^ They basically made the noodles the food version of MH.

Lets see some proof that this game sucks?

If this is the case, why do you spend time writing seven paragraphs defending MH3 instead of studying psychology? that sounds to me like an interesting job! Also, if you haven't heard people write "minnets", "lawng", "1eleven1", or "Secksy Hawt", than I note that you haven't seen the irritance of what I call "The Real Internet" (dun dun duuuun). or the majority of people I've encountered on Halo 3. That's why I don't play Halo 3.
Also, why do you think I'm basing my oppinion on Yahtzee? Nobody takes him seriously when he says a game is bad (except for Jericho, that game sucks). I just personally don't think MH3 is interesting. Maybe it's because I don't like fantasy games, or fantasy media to be exact. I don't like games that involve elves, knights, castles, dragons, orcs, or anything like that.

Just for the hell of it, Monster Hunter 3 is more of a low fantasy environment. There's no real magic, etc. Most of the monsters are physically viable.

Why the hell is everyone saying this game's bad because of a 10 hour tutorial. First off some fanboy idiot told yahtzee the tutorial was 10 hours second is that the tutorials like 30minutes-1hour! That's barely anything by most rpg standards.

I'm even more pissed on the fence players aren't buying because they ACTUALLY thought it was 10 hours of tutorial.

I guess you could say it's a bit more like Beowulf than Lord of the Rings. I myself just can't really get into those themes. If you can, however, I guess you already have the game and may or may not be willing to write 7 paragraphs defending the game while unsuccessfully trying to sound like their oppinion matters. I appreciate anyone who likes the game and hasn't wasted 20 minutes on a fourm trying to argue.

Lmao

Yahtzee, if it takes you 10 hours to do the tutorial, then you suck at video games. I was fighting that first boss you fought within an hour.

And you do know the wiimote controls are optional, right? You can use an actual controller.

For me, Dfskelleton it isn't about whether or not Yahtzee liked the game. It's about the lack of actual time reviewing the game. Simply put, the guy hasn't actually done his job. Yet he got paid for it.

Oh man. A few days ago I mentioned Yahtzee's review to a friend of mine who owns a Wii.

My god that was a mistake.

He started shouting like a berserk madman. I could see his eyes red with fanatical wrath. I was afraid for my life.
I guess I know how Yahtzee feels like.

Goodness me I had fun reading this humongous pile of fan rage.

Even though I did enjoy MH3 Yahtzee, I totally agree with the points you make. Why cant people just chill out and not get all sweaty and annoyed whenever somebody criticizes something they love, when it most certainly has flaws.

It's his opinion, off to your Capcom forums fanboys now.

His opinion is flawed, he never actually played the game. Released a review where he never talked about the bread & butter of the MH3 series. It's not even about fanboyism, it's about him never addressing real flaws and actually pulling some out of his imagination.

UTDC.Justin:

Yahtzee's job here isn't to tell you why a game is perfect and why you should buy it, every other magazine including the massively corrupt Famitsu does that (giving this game a 40 lol).

Out of the what like, 12 other games that got a perfect score? Look at the list.

Monster Hunter 3 sold more copies then MW2 in the UK. I kind of makes me wonder what the difference between the UK and US audience is.

I know he has to force himself to play these games but really the 4 player online is the biggest part of the series and its like a whole other game he never even got to see.

Im not saying yahtzee should't hate it, if he hated the game he should say so. But I do feel like he turned a lot of people away from a good game. Either way, the point of the game is to take legendary monsters on with a group of friends. I dont know if he knew that or not, I cant tell how serious he is after the "item collection endgame" part of his video.

I kind of feel bad that he didn't just try the demo because then he would get to play with the combat mechanics before the single player game that starts you off so bleeding slow. But the games controls have a steep learning curve that turns a lot of players off from the game so this was their best answer to lazy English audiences that don't like their games to be hard. A painfully slow slope.

Anyways, a painfully terrible misrepresentation of the game, as you really don't need to do all that collecting, unless its for the beginning quests witch you should be able to power through in 20min.

It sounds harsh, but maybe he should just play the demo disk if he obviously isnt going to put any time into it.

I agree with that post. Yahtzee, you aren't funny unless you are accurate.

What ten-hour tutorial? What do you mean you didn't automatically hop online? It isn't that hard to learn on the fly...

Sigh...10 hours=1 tutorial?It took my cousin 40 minutes.He's 12.This is the one review I have read from you that was grossly exaggerated...BTW I solo'd the game.Hr 49...alba WILL die!

I honestly have a hard time believing it took him that long to reach the Great Jaggi. I mean, hell... Monster Hunter Tri was my first MH game ever, and I actually started out with the Japanese version because I found the game concept to be so interesting and I happened to have a pretty giant chunk of free time then. Despite me having absolutely no idea at all what I was supposed to do (I don't understand Japanese), how any of the items worked, what the controls were, etc., it took me around 3 and a half hours to reach the Great Jaggi, mostly by accidentally doing stuff. Although I will admit, capturing my first monster took me many, many tries before I finally looked up exactly what you were supposed to do.

Once I had my hands on the NA version, it took me around 45 minutes to get back to the Great Jaggi, and on this run, I was still reading all the text and learning new things for the first time (as it was my first time seeing it all), and just generally taking it easy.

I didn't expect him to like MH at all, but every reason he gives just seems so... half assed.

XD I liked Monster Hunter Tri, but only when it's online. The story was POOP. The tutorials made me want to take a cheese grader to a cat. By the way, even though Yahtzee makes fun of some games I really like, it's still so great because it's true! How he made fun of Other M, it was art, I tell you!

I think its worth mentioning that yes, the tutorial could be considered to be a long one, but lets split the difference between Yahtzee and hardcore MH fans and call it 5 hours. Compared to the amount of time people who like the game spend on it (i.e. hundreds of hours), its a comparitively short tutorial. Compare it to Portal, which, lets face it, was tutorial for half an hour...the game only takes a few hours to finish, so that half hour represents a huge portion of the game. Its a much better presented tutorial sure, but a longer one, speaking relatively...

I had no prior experience of MH, but I like this game, and think its sad that so many people wrote it off purely because Yahtzee claimed it took too long to get into, rather than rent it for a night and find out for themselves. Sheeple :P

Mindmaker:
This game does not have a 10 hour tutorial.
If you would have invested more than half an hour into the game you would have found out yourself.

He did, ge got far enough to fight the bosses.

Krimson Kun:
It does however put his credibility on the line. He made the game sound like it was nothing but boring thing without any fucking thing to do(not even giant boss monsters existed in his review), and that is why people got angry in the first place, because he was incorrect about the game. He is entitled to his opinion as you are to yours and me to mine, but it is a whole other thing to just rant and rant and rant about the tutorial(all the things that he rants about? Goes away on the NEXT QUEST).

But he wasn't incorrect about the game. He actually fought one of the bosses only to discover that even they where a grind.

Gets better with other people, isnt' a point in the games favor. But your socilising skills and wether you 'socially connect' with them, or if there where particularly good jokes that day that made the day good, not the game itself.

If Monster Hunter isn't well designed for a single player than its not Yahtzee's fault is it?
Its like criticising a restuarant as 'shit', because of how you where treated by the people eating there and not the food.

I've seen a constant whining in this "Extra Punctuation" with such terms that relate to "I have a job unlike you basement dwelling fucks that love to spend time being a Masochist about it."

But I'm curious on whether Yahtzee has harkened himself to FAR older times than the 6th generation of videogames ala the NES. In which the game "gets better later" is the very foundation of what the old times harkened about (YES CONTRA I'M YELLING AT YOU!!).

And I again quote from Yahtzee "Maybe if I had your kind of wealthy, privileged lifestyle and could spend most of my days idly playing Wii by the pool as a team of oiled bodybuilders fanned me with palm fronds" as one of the most juvenile things I've ever heard as an attempt to justify the self-proclaimed fact that a challenging game sucks. The main problem about this is; the game is merely quest based (Yes it has freeroam). Quests are those tasks that CAN reduce your playing time since it probably has a time limit to remind you that you have work to do...you can play it for mere (long) minutes, save the game, and go back again. Yes, this game forces you to strangle your stash, lock you into quests, but he must then realize that it is his fault alone...NOT the game mechanics. Insulting a Game mechanic for what it does well is usually not a good idea and should ONLY be criticized when its not serving it's supposed function.

But let's look at the bright side that gives off another hue of JUSTICE. As games; we are given the privilege to become someone we're not (Kratos, Dante (OK he's emo but), War, Master Chief, Titus, Kain Highwind (lol..emo), etc.) and we are allowed to immerse into their pain and rage as we press BUTTONS TO UNLEASH JUST HOW FUCKING PISSED THEY ARE!!!111...although Yahtzee's style is questionable; its his style of playing...and games are there to cater to our entertainment, so yes...he HAS the right to hate a game if he doesn't like it...why?? Because he WANTS to have fun; like all of us gamers. This Generalist point of view has then revealed a fatal flaw to Yahtzee's sense of reasoning, in that he insults other mediums liking it because he didn't find it fun...then again, those Private Messages are probably annoying him.

Well then, I guess i'm just a very thick person who can tolerate massive amounts of repetition because i've always liked Monster Hunter, and I really don't know why I still like it, seeing as I agree with everything Yahtzee has said about it. That is, except for the tutorial hyperbole (seriously, 10 hours?)

I enjoyed monster hunter freedom and freedom unite, but i have to agree with Yahtzee here. This sequel is more about gathering than hunting. In unite i rarely ever needed to gather something that you couldn't get by just kicking somethings ass. Still, whoever told Yahtzee that the tutorial is 10 hours, is an idiot.

If the tutorial took you 10 hours, then you took WAY too long.
Also, you only got to the Great Jaggi?
Seriously?

I really enjoy this game. That's probably because my mind never really feels grind any more after years of RPG's and F2P online games with crafting systems. I've noticed that a lot of people playing Monster Hunter on Youtube don't go slaughter everything kill-able within sight, which seems to make them end up needing to grind. I think the point of this game is a big crafting game with epic combat segments.
