Monster Hunter 3 Tri Official Site Updated

I bought a Wii for this yesterday. I preordered this game and a classic controller since there were no bundles available. From what I've read here I need to buy Wii speak and a keyboard too? Fuck, I'm going to need to buy a wireless router too now. This game is killing my wallet and it's not even out yet. Is it wrong to jump into the online portion of the game right away? I mean I'm a noob, I won't know shit, but I want to play this strictly as an online experience.

You should be able to find Wii Speak for a dirt cheap price. As far as the game goes, the single player mode doesn't seem to feature the majority of monsters. The online multiplayer will include all of the monsters as well as the DLC for special events. I think you'll be able to jump straight into the online multiplayer if you want to. I'm sure it will be an easier experience with the help of other players fighting together with you. Although, not all of the weapons will be available at the start of online play which is the same for the single player mode.

By the way, congrats on your purchase. :D
 
Wow, just saw a lengthy video on the UK website here: http://nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/games/wii/monster-hunter-tri_15420.html and it does a good job explaining a lot of things. Didn't realise that armour customisation is so varied, can't wait to get an awesome looking piece :). Also didn't realise about the individual monsters weak spots. As a monster hunter noob, I feel I'm going to need all the information I can get.

Just need a competent friend who can help me play splitscreen! April 29th (when all my work is handed in) can't come soon enough! That week long wait from the release till my work is in is going to be a bitch!

Did it mention anything about the skills system? I cant watch the video :/
Nah, don't think it did. Is this the armour skill system thing you were talking about? How does that work?

Also, I saw an advert on TV the other day, just a quick glimpse of a monster then points to www.theyrecoming.co.uk (redirects to facebook group). More of a teaser really. I'm expecting some proper adverts on TV soon
 
I'd really like to read the NP review -- does anyone here have it by any chance?

I'm really glad IGN mentioned the NPCs. We worked really hard on Tri to make the localization stand out from the previous games. I realize nobody plays MH for the story, but it's definitely polished this time! :)

Word, some of that shit is fucking funny.

"We"? Were you one of the people responsible for the translation? If so, I like the name Dash Juice from the demo as opposed to Power Juice in the previous installments :)

Basically it allows you to configure an armor to suit your playing style. It wasn't so flexible before, all thanks to the protection stone.

I believe he is at 8-4 Ltd.:
"Shibuya-based 8-4, Ltd. is a localization firm that specializes in making Japanese games more palatable for the Western market."

Nice! Knwoing you guys worked on it makes this that much more awesome.

I ended up winning $60 for my NCAA bracket, so thats my Tri money right there, lol :)

Bit of a bummer though, my wife and I are huge fans and were not going to be able to quest together unless we do some crazy shenanigans :|

Wait, you worked on the localisation? Did you have any say in the Monsters' English names or was that out of your control, because I have some constructive criticisms.

Boruborosu and Beriorosu to Barroth and Barioth. Seriously? No one saw that as an issue in a game with no voice acting?
Agnaktor could have also used an extra vowel. Agnakotor rolls of the tongue much nicer.

Other then that, sounds like you guys did a great job on the rest.
 
Well, just ordered one of those Logitech Wireless Keyboards for the Wii..from Amazon. ($17.80 + $19.95 for a 2 year Nintendo Power subscription)

Should be here by next week, when I pick up the game..even though I already have Wii Speak, I know I won't be talking around. :lol

Haha. Thanks -- the monster names were decided by Capcom in collaboration w/the dev team -- so even if you don't like 'em, at least know that they come with the original creators' blessings.

More like curse. They could have sticked to Giginebura, or maybe Giginebra, but Giginox?

I mean, really? :'(

A buddy of mine bought the PSP monster hunter, so I tried playing it.

...

Yeah, I don't think I've ever had a game make me feel like I had cerebral palsy before.
Yeah the controls are goofy. But once you get used to the finger hooking (or "the claw" as others put it), it becomes much easier to control. I'm currently working on
a full set of cephalos armor
in MHFU.

Finger hooking. The claw. Sounds like hell week in some frat house...
 
I'd heard that Gamestop wasn't taking pre-orders for the Classic Controller Pro bundle online anymore, but I didn't know that applied in-store, too. Found out the hard way today.

I bet I can hop into a Best Buy on launch day and find one -- at least I hope.

Damn, I feel stupid for waiting. Amazon is not taking pre-orders either.
 
So I tried the demo and I'm VERY intrigued. I'm probably going to pick it up but I have a question:

The game seems really blurry, and the text is especially hard to read. Does anyone have difficulty reading the text? Any word of the retail game having sharper text -- or maybe there's a setting on my TV that is being funky (I have sharpness all the way up when I play the demo).

GOOOORGEOUS graphics though! Every area is like a perfectly crafted location from an amuement park ride.
 
Lost my wallet recently. I'll probably have enough for this but since I lost my wallet that might mean no SMG2. :O Hopefully I can find it soon (been missing since Monday).
 
That's odd, I remember the very first MH on PS2 having a guide. It was terrible :lol So much misinformation and bullshit and flat out wrong stuff. Still it had it's uses.

If I have time I might write up a small beginners guide for preparing yourself for battle. Simple stuff, but I know it can be hard figuring that most of that stuff out.

Please please please do this. I really like the game, but man is it hard to figure everything out, and I only played the demo.
