Unskippable: Monster Hunter Tri

Huh, so do they just copy and paste this type of "crazy hair, impractical chaps are in fashion, cat-people are normal, slutschool girl outfits are mandatory" stuff for these sorts of games? I swear, it all looks so familiar...

Why, I remember when I was a kid and watched whatever was on television, catching some anime shows once in a while. There were some that had generally likable, cool, or non-chap-wearing characters, but they were typically diverse and stood out from each other (even the ones with the giant robots!). So JRPG-type games, what gives? :p

When they got to the cat farmers, I couldn't help but feel that it was just so adorably stupid. (emphasis on the stupid, not adorable).

As usual, a string of large animal attacks is strung together to give people the impression that the lost monsterworld is a dangerous place when it's actually quite scenic and peaceful. That's what you get for trusting the biased media.

I really wish that there was a part 2 to this. It was just so ridiculous and the comments so hilarious that I want more.

The intro sequence would have had me scared to death to leave my house, but only if my house was a bomb-proof bunker with 2 foot concrete walls. Otherwise it wouldn't matter if I was in my house or not, I would still be screwed.

Sadly (or perhaps it's a good thing) this game sneaks away with as few cut scenes as possible, so no chance of a part 2, but I agree. The only other cut scenes left all last less than a minute each, and are usually just there to introduce new areas or bosses.

There are several decent cutscenes I could see them working with from this game. There's the one where the Felyne is walking down a road and gets caught in a territorial dispute between two Uragaan. Another one where the Qurupeco has to contend with Jaggi while it tries to fish, and my personal favorite, the Great Jaggi getting co-cocked by a Barroth. That one almost begs for commentary.

*wistful sigh* This episode of Unskippable just reminds me to buy myself another copy of the game. I really loved it, and I want to return to it someday. It'd be nice if they'd release that MMO version for the PC here in the states, but everything I've read says they have no plans to. Boooo.

I haven't seen those. Maybe that proves I should have played a bit longer then... I do have to agree that it would be great to see this on PC because I love this game, but I haven't played it as much as I would like to. I fear that is mostly because I usually end up playing games when I am either just looking around on the internet or get tired from doing school related stuff...

Best unskippable in a while...

And I don't care how little sense that stamped made.. that was an awesome series of one ups... but that might just be because Draco likes dragons. RAWR!

That part with the guy dropping the shark down was hilarious! And I love how that one old guy looked to be about 2 feet tall.

It just feels like a game that was made for the PC, although I do like using my Wii Classic Controller to fight.

There is one for PC, but only in Japan. But hey, if you persevere through MH3 far enough, you can fight this SOB: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVEbv9-Lqag

Really? I find most third person action games rather clunky on the PC. To each his own I guess.

Anyway I'm so glad you guys did this, love the game and of course there's plenty of fodder for you guys thanks to its Japanese origin.

The shark joke was awesome.

wow some of the funniest commentary yet!

then again it's as if the cutscenes were made for hilarious comments to be made about it

yaay finally a good one again
you guys really excel at jrpgs

"I'm trying to think of a useful job that cats WOULD be good at. And I can't"

That job would be vermin control.

Laughed my thong off, best Unskippable of the year. All it's missing to be the best of all times would be a Moon joke.

Scarim Coral:
Haha yeah it so true that the human would not stand a chance against any of the creatures in the game.

No matter how big a sword you had, it just wouldn't tip, the scales

You suck McBain!

*gets shot at*

It's all fun and games 'till someone... Is a dragon.

Great Unskippable, as always. I have no idea why this and LRR are below stuff like Top 5 and bloody Jimquisition...

Isn't cats supposed to catch mice?

Thats a job.

That was probably the funniest unskippable I've watched, and I've watched damn near all of them.

One of my favourite Unskippables for a while guys, keep up the standard! :D

Could only be funnier if this game had space russians ^^

Cats are spies/thieves, you dopes. "Cat burglar?" Silent steps, lightning fast, scale walls, see in the dark? Let's see dogs do all that!

And I can't figure out if that village was preparing for their gay pride parade later with all the assless chaps.

Osaka117:
I'd much rather fight that fire breathing dragon than look at that dudes ass less chaps and thong combo any longer.

For me I think it's less the assless chaps (although 0_o) - every younger dude in town seems to be wearing them - and more the, er, dramatic angle you first see them from. I'm pretty sure there was no actual reason for them to 'film' him from behind and below while he climbed up onto that thing. That entire sequence was solely to display the assless chaps/thong combo, I'm sure of it.

Does it become an integral game component later? It must be significant! =P

"It's a shark. Deal with it." XD Best unskippable quote in a long time.

guy1; Dinosaurs, sea-monsters and dragons...how can we survive. D:

guy2; , Giant reptiles and mythical creatures.

guy1; ... :D

Favorite Line from any Unskippable ever:

"That into beautifully illustrated why the humans in the game would have no goddamn chance against any of those creatures."

I have laughed this hard for this long in a while.

Oh god, the thong, WHYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?!

ninjajoeman:
The dragon shouldnt be to much of a problem. Knowing JRPGs it will wait to attack until everyone in your party hits it first. ALRIGHT WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO FIGHT THIS DRAGON!

That's a good way to get your party killed. Monster Hunter is not the sort of game that you can just rush in sword swinging.

Seeds + Birds - Scarecrow = We go hungry for the next 6 months :(
Seeds + Birds + Cats = We have food, cat has food and we have a pet!

Cats have jobs. Be cute, Or absolutely revolting as they tear apart flying vermin. (I've seen my kitten try, it stopped when feathers came off... and played with the feathers)

Roofstone:
Best in a long time. First joke made me laugh

For me it was the Gods are Angry and Repent your Man Thong!

HankMan:
Man thong was WAY scarier than any of the monsters

Agreed!!
...but way funny.

"It's a shark. Deal with it."

I almost choked on my saliva laughing so hard after hearing that. Why I neglected watching Unskippable for so long, I have no idea.

The only two good parts about this trailer were the dragon in the beginning and the lovely voice-over by the unskippable team.
