Online for the Wii U version eh? Guess I know which version I'm getting.

same here except its mostly because i prefer big screen and bigger controllers, plus this will be my first game in the series

You should play some of the other ones. They are all pretty cheap since they have been out for a while. If you have a Wii or PSP, then you should go get one ASAP.

i have all my freind except the vita lol havent gotten around to getting it yet

arent they kind of like long games though?
rezzah  +   864d ago
It really is a love or hate game, so if it is your only attraction for buying a WiiU you should hold back for something more assured. This is only if you have never actually played the game.

And yes they are they are long games with basically no stories at all. the notes to enter missions are basically the story. Though the main attraction for this game is the sense of accomplishment and working with others (online).

no game influenced my decision to get the WiiU rezzah, got deluxe preordered and getting nsmbU and zombiU

so thats 3 games so far, not even sure if monster hunter ultimate is going to be a launch title?

So, since there's no wifi functionality, I can't play along with my brother on his 3DS? That's a bummer.
omarzy  +   864d ago
You can do Local play, just not online co-op mode.

Not that it matters much, MH isn't that popular in the West so finding a couple of players around willing to play would be somewhat difficult.

stupid.

Typical crapcom. Should've seen this coming.
DA_SHREDDER  +   864d ago
This is the game that's gonna get me to buy a WiiU, and it doesn't even come out till next year.
Myst  +   864d ago
That's disheartening not to have a MH with online features especially given how well the 3DS is at this point. Well at least the WiiU version will have it.

No handheld monhun has ever had online, and 3g is no exception. While online certainly could have been added with localization, the console one was being made anyway and that one did have online built in, so it made more sense for them I guess...
Myst  +   864d ago
Well they at least had some form of being able to play with others like ad-hoc and such. I mean the 3DS is suited for being able to do it and wondering why they at least left it out of that. I guess they are putting a lot more effort in to the WiiU side of things and thus that's why? I dunno still just kind of wish they added something to it in the way of online or ad-hoc

I'm thrilled to hear MHTU is not all it's cracked up to be. Oh sure, it will sell, but until Capcom stops being a dick to the fans that grew the series, I hope all their games sell worse and worse. So Monster Hunter becomes just like every other series they make.

Until Capcom makes a Monster Hunter Vita I will not buy a single game published by them.
ronin4life  +   864d ago
You have it backwards:
Monhun made the psp. Sony had NOTHING to do with this.

However, NINTENDO made Monhun in the west. They published tri, advertised it and made it the most popular highest selling Monhun game in the west. Sony never did anything to push or help capcom with Monhun in the west or in Japan.

This is a case of people liking Monhun, not Sony. If anything, Sony fans should feel grateful to Monhun for pulling it all these years, because I assure you most Monhun fans are not also major Sony fans.

Monster Hunter did make the PSP. That fact is proof as to why Capcom should have put the game on a system that's capable of giving me a better experience than the last. Everything shown about the 3DS titles turns me away from the series, and as a fan with 1500 hours into the PSP titles and 5 friends that went out and purchased a PSP simply for MHF2, I have to say WTF.

I'm not loyal to Sony any more than I'm loyal to Nintendo, but the fact still remains that the fanbase was born on Sony products. As for promotions in the West? Who gives a royal shit? The Japanese titles that get "Westernized" become terrible. I want a Monster Hunter made for the hardcore Japanese fanbase that gets localized. Not a game aimed at an American audience that gets downgraded. Besides Sony had bundles, events, and all sorts of stuff promoting Monster Hunter in Japan, and numerous interviews with Sony always gave me the impression that they were proud to have the series.

Considering buying a WiiU just to play this...

Beating Dark Souls to death has left a gap in my library for big ass bosses and tail-cutting shenanigans. This seems to be my best option.

I can't transfer my characters from Tri?!?!! *kneels down* NOOOOOOOOOO!!

Seriously, I will miss those couple of characters i put about 700 hours of my time in, but this just means that I will get another 700 hours of fun trying to beat everything =D

All that's left to wonder is, does the game support the Wii Remote? I got used to playing like that on Tri because I didn't have the classic controller at the time.
ronin4life  +   864d ago
I personally don't get, on a technical level, why saves can't be transferred. ?_.
DivineAssault  +   864d ago
smh.. This is another recycled game any damn way... Why didnt they do 4 with this cross play mechanic???
