How would you even do a current Gen Monster Rancher? Most people use digital for the most part so discs are out. QR codes? OH shit you can do one based on internet sites, each site gives you another monster with special monsters for certain sites like how they did with some disks like MGS.

To get other monsters in the Ios game you buy the discs in the shop,

however, your options are either 5000 CR for a specific breed (the game doesn't even give you that much CR to begin with) or about 500 MR Coins for a disc with a random monster

and sub breeds follow the MR3 style where you have several locations and the monster's sub type changes depending on where you raise it, how ever, again you need to pay extra to get the other farm locations

Mews tend to be pretty well-rounded with several nice attacks. They're pretty good and have a few attacks that are really dangerous, but a number of really weak ones.

They're probably better than the Dino/Zuum overall, but not as focused as something like a Pixie or Golem.
>>
>>260042403

Training isn't even that good here, it's just "pic a stat to raise and instead of showing your monster training, we'll just let you pick which stat to improve without any actually training activites like running, dodging or studying, an d just put good or bad or just tell you if your monster cheated

I wonder what other games they've done?

Never really got to play any of these games in the past. Always knew that they existed, just never attempted to play them. I knew they had something to do with scanning discs. So, looked it up online and it was actually pretty cool on how they created the monsters from the disc.

"The characteristics of the monster (such as stats, breed, and traits) are determined by various integers stored in the game. To generate a monster, a random number generator is needed to define what characteristics the monster will have. However, because random number generators are only pseudo-random, the entropy of possible monsters would be limited by the pseudo-random seed. To resolve this, TECMO created a CD reading system that would generate unique random number seeds and, consequently, a large variety of random monsters. Discs contain digital information with a different sequence of values. When the game reads this information, the values found within the discs' data are mapped to the range of integers in the game."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monster_Rancher

It's sort of a damn shame that the series didn't catch on. Maybe too novel or didn't have the right spice?
>>
I'm not the only one who disliked 5/EVO am I?

It just felt too different

instead of tournaments you make money through circus performances

Instead of training your monsters directly, you just assign them to a coach

and it feels more like generic RPG

Well the same goes for any dead series. I don't have any hope of a new MR game being made by whatever dev, actually being good. I may be super hyped if they announced it, but then you will start seeing all the little ways they are bound to fuck up and the cycle of despair goes on.

At least the games have a lot of shit in them so it's easy to keep replaying them. From the day i first played Monster Rancher 2 and Digimon World 1 i have been replaying those games every 5-6 months and i still have shit to do. Nostalgia is probably speaking here, but they don't make them like they used to.

MY NIGGA, i have been checked their blog everyday since they started. Sure it ain't the 3ds version with all the extra shit, but it's something. Shame it is the only Digimon game that is a true sequel to Digimon World 1, tho to be honest i really like 3 even if it is a more classic Jrpg.

why do devleopers feel the need to bring back classic series only to turn them into shitty Ios games with loads of paywalls?

Probably, or maybe because people still have hope of a western release? Plus it only came out 2 months ago, where the PSP one came out in 2012. Fucking Namco can go suck a dick i don't want no shitty Rumble Arena clone, i want Digimon World 1.
>>
I want a Monster Rancher game on the 3DS, with the artstyle of Monster Rancher 2, and the gameplay mixed with Monster Rancher 2 and Monster Rancher Advance 2. Monster Selection should be like either of those games, though I prefer the designs of MR2. But neither are bad.

And as a replacement for discs, you can instead scan QR codes.

Is Monster Rancher a dead series doomed to iOS or is there a chance we'll see this happen?
>>
>>260045841

I don't get why they announced Rumble Arena 3 instead of one of the handheld games?

Granted I'd be more intrested if the new Rumble Arena would be by Arc System Works, since they know how to make a fighter but yeah it's pretty disappointing
>>
>>260045273
>why do devleopers feel the need to bring back classic series only to turn them into shitty Ios games with loads of paywalls?

Because there's a handful of people who will get into it on nostalgia and brand name alone. If they don't care about their personal image anymore (and most of the devs don't seem to) then who cares how much customer respect in you tanks? They'll still get the game, because they're loyal to the brand name.

You are wrong m8 Dungeon Keeper was just too innovative, too ahead for its time. I bet in 50 years people look back at it like it's the Half life of its era.

On the next episode of "EA rape train".....
>>
>>260047537
Yeah, it's basically Final Fantasy
But without the story
And without the gameplay
And with more grinding

It was nice to see all the 3D characters in sprite form though
>>
>>260047537
Yes. And you pay for "packs" with a random character and if you get a character you already have, too bad.
Also, if you lose a battle you need to wait some 15 minutes or so to have another battle. Unless you pay to revive everyone and continue the battle.
Also, the bosses require either restarting repeatedly to beat or a massive amount of grinding to get past.

And that's the whole game.


Dungeon Keeper is still pretty shitty and money-grabbing, though.

Only ever played 1 and 2, 2 is definitely best.

I started a new run recently and I've raised a champion henger and dullahan. I wanted to start raising a bunch of monsters I've never had the pleasure of trying before but I'm already starting to burn out.

I got a wracky then promptly ditched the little bastard. Just turned an undine into indiana's bitch. I like her but that's her purpose.

I really wanted to try a beaclon but it's a pain in the ass to get, I got some metalners on standby, there are so many combinations I want to try. Look at this glorious monster right here. I wanted to try beaclon/dullahan as well.

Epsxe can emulate monster ranchers 1 and 2 just fine and can use both cd's and iso's for monster creation perfectly.

It's been a while, but there are a couple of things I remember liking about it. The fact that you could train five monsters at once on your ranch was pretty fucking awesome. You could also take a team of three dungeon crawling through adventure mode.

Monster Rancher 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Since I was a kid it's always been one of my go-to chill out games.

I played the shit out of MR2 and never managed to get a Henger. Fucker was my most coveted monster.

Henger are fucking awesome and any monster with henger as a sub-type is also awesome.

Especially golem/hengers, fucking iron giants. Arrowhead hengers were also boss. Technodragon's were the most lame of them since they didn't get a complete remodeling like the others did.

Well yes, but that's besides the point. Your first monster in the iOS game is dependent on your Mobage ID#. I believe mine was Suezo, and anyone who adds me as a friend could also use my ID to generate one.

I got into the series. The amount of monsters is impressive.
3 is my favorite. The whole environment evolution thing was a very cool idea, even though it didn't make sense in the series. The art style was also nice.
That said, I like each game for what it is. I also respect the series in the same vein as Digimon, where they tried something new each time.
I really need to get farther in DS.

>>260062096
I really liked raising more than one monster at a time, and the dungeon story line though. 4 had a pretty cool art style, too. As much as I like the soft, cartoony styles of 3 and DS, I think 4 is how the series should look.

Something psychic. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a psychic monster in the series yet. Maybe make it a living Haniwa or Dogu statue or something.

I played this when I was a kid, I didn't know english so It was pretty hard for me to play,. And I didn't know how to battle, so I only won a few times(luck).
The first words I learnt were Save and Load, and I had to try every option to see what they did.
Also, that girl that helps you through the game was my first 2D crush.
Maybe I should play it again to see what they really were saying, now that I know english.

What made it worse is that they handed you one at the beginning in MR4. The only blight on an otherwise great game.

There hasn't been a Worm in the series since MR2

Hmm, I never used Suezo because Pikachu Syndrome. In hindsight, most of its moves ARE psychic in nature. So yeah, I stand by my Haniwa idea.

They way to get monsters is to generate them from CD-roms you have lying around... You might want tot try GBA games.

DQM is more akin to Pokémon. Monster Rancher differs a bit between games, but typically their one on one personal monster raising through gym training, and then tournaments and sometimes dungeon crawling.

Every monsters has its own competitive advantage against other monsters too, Colorpandora has advantage on health, Suezo on intelligence, Hare on Speed or Skill, Golem on Defense or Attack, Plant on intelligence, Beaklon on defense and attack etc. so it depends on what monsters you'll be training.

S-rank monsters has higher stats compared to E-rank monsters.

MR4 for the most part stuck to the classic Monster Rancher formula, but, like most of the titles after 2, it introduced changes just for the sake of being different, not necessarily better. Adventures were boring, slow, and repetitive as shit IMO. Multiple monster breeding, that was awesome and the best thing about the game for me. Making schedules didn't work perfectly but was neat. Battle system got revamped with the possibility of adding elements to attack (depending on the element, raising some parameters, for example critical, and lowering others) and counter attacks, which let you avoid an attack completely and damage your opponent if you guess which button the used for their attack (x, circle or square)... I disliked both of those additions. Also, you had to customize your farm adding gadgets and such for training specific stats, which was kinda neat but requiered a lot of planning and adventuring to collect the gadgets.
