"Capcom has released the first screenshots of Monster Hunter 3 tri- for the Wii in the latest Famitsu magazine. The game will be playable at Tokyo Game Show 2008. The game is 33% complete..."
im sorry but the visuals look very good for the wii.
what i see there are some super blurred scans... i know this it's a Wii article so everybody's going to disagree with me even if what i'm saying is entierly true so keep lying to yourself.
why b sorry? dont let the haters get to you. the graphics do look awesome and that is a fact *in before "just liek ps2 grafx comments* bubbles up for you

This game looks really good. I'm keeping an eye on this game. Finally devs are pushing the limits of the Wii.
Looks beautiful and very intriguing. Never heard of the Monster Hunter series before I first heard speak of it coming to the Wii, so I'll definitely be looking into it. Looks VERY interesting, and gorgeous.
this game looks VERY good, a real step up from the PS2 versions, but I really wouldn't be interested playing this game without my familiar d-pad. dont take that as bashing it just my preference. coming from a huge monster hunter fan I hope wii fans enjoy it, and maybe capcom will give us purists a ps2 port, or just a ps3/360 version later on, cause I need to kill me some kut ku's!
man PS3/360 version would be kickass, think about this game running on HD. Man i still have #1 for PS2 but im banned from the online.
It only kicks butt if its in HD? so I guess every game before this gen sucks, they're not HD.
those gfx are bad you must be joking if you say they are good... but, that is one awesome art direction to save itself. TBH that art direction is perfect for the wii it uses a blocky style that is actually pleasing to the eyes i would buy that game if i had a wii just on that art direction alone. The department in charge of art direction needs a pay raise for saving their a$$es. The blocky programming is obvious praise to capcom for using a weak point and turning it into a strength.
@gamers4fun dude 33% complete and it looks that good...........come on now. yea the art direction does look good and adds but i think its harder to do art direction then to make games look realistic.Art trumps tech everyday..anyday.
Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii,day one buy
I sense a huge spike in Wii Sales when this game comes out in Japan. Look what MH did for the PSP.
ign actually has a none scan image of the game.....looks very good imo.
I've got news for anyone who thinks this game looks good. It looks like what MH1 would have looked like on the original Xbox, and at 33% complete, with Crapcom as the developer, it ain't gonna look any better. To put it into perspective, those graphics you see are like the alpha stage graphics the game would be at if developed on a 360 or PS3. But, for MH, the graphics are of secondary importance. It's the online that counts, and it'll suck.
They're scans!! Sheesh...
You're a hater.
Of Crapcom and, even though I have one, the Wii. Crapcom defines mediocrity, and the Wii caters to the lazy developers thereby stunting real progress. Why would I like a game that could be so much better if it was on the right system? Why would I like a console that seeks to regress the industry? Can you explain that for me?
If you sincerely feel that any company would release a console seeking to "regress the industry", then no amount of explanation will satisfy you. You've already decided that the online will suck because it's a Wii game and you've already decided to pass on the game simply because you feel that it would be better on another platform. That kind of pessimism reveals a lot about your character unfortunately.
Why shouldn't I believe that Nintendo wants to regress the industry? They were on top back in the day when the very games they release now were considered "new" and "exciting". The console itself isn't a progression, the games certainly aren't, the gimmicks behind it all are merely recycled ideas with more power. Show me a true step forward that the Wii has brought to the industry. And I swear if you say "it brought casual gamers" then you're Dee Dee Dee. Casual gamers do nothing to help the industry in ANY way. These are people who encourage lazy development and low quality because they don't know any better. And, it's more likely than not that they WILL NOT purchase another console when the new generation of consoles begins. So in what way is that good? As for my pessimism, you can place the blame squarely on lazy developers like Crapcom, and arrogant console developers like Nintendo. I own a Wii, I know what it's online is like, and Mario Kart Wii's online is barely adequate. The only reason the Wii gets away with having horrible online is because it's Nintendo. If the 360 or the PS3 EVER had horrible online (and according to fanboys, the PS3 has never had good online) then you'd never hear the end of the insults. Why should anyone be satisfied playing with mediocrity? When did mediocrity count as advancement? If, and I'm assuming by the tone of your reply, you are the opposite of me and think this game is good, that it will be great on the Wii and everything is going to by A-OK, then it's precisely people like you that allow half-assed, phoned in games to exist in the first place, dumbing down the overall quality of the industry. When it sucks, NOT IF, then what are you going to say? Are you going to pat Crapcom and Nintendo on the back for giving it that ol' College try? Or will you wise up and smell the manure that is Crapcom's overall game offerings, and the Wii's gaming regression? I'm betting it's the former.
Your assumption is wrong. I have not decided whether MH3 is good or bad because I have not played it. All I can tell you is that as a gamer, I am generally optimistic about upcoming games and hope that these games will be good regardless of platform. You've already admitted to hating both the Wii and Capcom, and in doing so have basically titled all of your MH3 comments with, "Take the following comment w/ the biggest grain of salt you can find." "Half-assed, phoned-in" games have existed since the dawn of gaming, and acting like you belong to some elite echelon of gamer in order to distance yourself from others who play games simply to have fun does not qualify you to make accurate predictions as to whether a particular game will not be good in the eyes of others. Passing judgment on other gamers who you feel encourage lazy development and low-quality may make you feel elite, but it does not change the fact that more than likely you have boughten games in the past which appeal to these types of gamers as well. It's foreseeable that any evidence I might present to support the argument that all three major consoles have progressed the industry will be deemed unimportant if it is in support of the Wii, as you have already made your decision. However, I will say that I think it's both hilarious and ironic that you would use the phrase, "recycled ideas with more power" to uniquely describe the Wii.
You really take games too serious. Its supposed to entertain, thats all. It doesn't have to have HD, and Xbox live type online to entertain. Heck I'm happy with Mario Karts Graphics, and Online service, as well as Battalion Wars ii and PES 2008. Chill out. To each its own, and obiviously Wii isn't for you. Angel Winged Brawler has Spoken.
I've been gaming for over 20 years. Don't misunderstand, I don't care about graphics or any of that. What I do care about is a game not being used to its fullest potential just because a company is greedy and wants to make a quick buck. MH on the PSP did wonders for the franchise and really brought a lot of Western interest to the franchise, so what does Crapcom go and do? Instead of giving the greater audience what it wants, which is advancement, they decided to go back a step and dumb everything down. It's just another example of the direction Nintendo wants the industry to head in, instead of the way it should head in. And that's what I take issue with. Entertainment must progress, not regress. Tastes evolve, not devolve. And MH3 is merely one small part of a much larger puzzle. That puzzles picture is of developers making quick, easy money, by scaling way back. Can anyone who's more than just a casual gamer really say that that sounds like a good thing?
honestly did you even read some of the mh3 articles? they say they want to reinvent the series with new and exciting gameplay.New gameplay that can expand the franchise and deepen the immersion. Sounds to me that you only want to complain about this game seeing as how we now little about it and your assuming it to be a quick dollar for Capcom. Thats the problem with you though ...your assuming.You have no idea what this game is about besides the 33% completion pictures or the 10 features or so we know so far. Sounds to me like you want this game to fail same with Nintendo. True i will agree that alot of companies are trying to make a quick buck in some casual titles but seeing just that side of the story and not saying the good about Nintendo is kinda one sided imo especially seeing as how it seems like everyday a new core title is announced for wii.
Is only assumption without evidence. It is a FACT that Crapcom moved it to the Wii because of money. It is a FACT that the Wii's online is sub-par, especially compartively speaking. How I'm I making assumptions when these are well known, and documented FACTS? I don't care what Crapcom says, because they say a lot of things that turn out to NOT be the truth. DMC4 PS3 exclusive (didn't care about that, just using it as an example), MH3 PS3 exclusive, PS3 doesn't support 3rd party betas (MGS4 says hello), we're a dedicated multiplatform company (that selectively makes exclusives). So, they can say that they are "expanding" MH by bringing it to the Wii and using motion control to somehow make the game more immersive (yeah right), but anyone who takes a look at the way they do things can clearly see it's a quick cash grab. As for Nintendo, what good? They still think they can tell people what they want, instead of listening to what they want. People want an HDD for VC games and WiiWare since the Wii's storage is pathetic. What's Nintendo's first response? "Only geeks and Otaku want HDD's". Second response? "We're looking into the storage issue, but we're not saying we're giving you HDD's". Core gamers that built Nintendo's brand want games that interest them, considering they spend the most money on gaming. What's Nintendo's reply? WiiMusic and Animal Crossing. You say there is a new Core game announced for the Wii practically everyday? Yeah right. The last "core" game announced for the Wii that ANYONE has shown interest in is The Conduit, before that there was RE5. And beyond that there was a drought. Nintendo released all their fan service franchises in the Wii's first year, and the next true Zelda game isn't expected for at least another year minimum. Armature studios lost 3 of their best people, and they're responsible for Metroid Prime. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, yours is that the Wii is awesome and that everything is great and Nintendo is great and everything is just perfect. Mine is that Nintendo is trying to relive their glory days by recycling old ideas, heavily marketing them as new to a gullible market that doesn't know any better, and is being supported by people who can't seem to see what they're doing. Your opinion is that Capcom is a great company, with great games, and that MH3 is no exception. My opinion is that Crapcom is only a great company when it wants to be, makes mediocre games 9 times out of 10, appears to always be on the edge of total bankruptcy so they phone in games to make a quick buck, don't know greatness when they have it, and mess up the greatness they already had. For goodness sake, they canned Hideki Kamiya and Clover Studios, AND made Street Fighter 4 look absolutely awful. What I want is for Crapcom to learn a lesson, which seems will never happen as long as there are people willing to look at them through rose colored glasses.
Only a fool says casuals don't help the industry. Casuals give money to your favorite companies, so that they can fund a big name game. What do you think kept PS2 afloat? at least 100 mill of the 120 mill PS2 owners were casual, or else PS3 would have a bigger fanbase.
