4U is one of the lowest selling and critically panned games in the series in the portable line. Japan is starting to call it out as another Call of Duty. I think Portable 3rd was the game's peak, which sold 3 million+ in Japan alone.

Japan is getting tired of the casualization and lack of innovation I presume. In fact, it's had the most significant price drop in the lowest amount of time for pretty much all MH releases. This is very uncommon in Japan considering PSP games are still full price.

I remember everyone giving Freedom Unite bad reviews because it was too hard and obtuse for them.

The main complaint with MH4G was that it didn't add enough content to be considered a good expansion.

Using Amazon JP reviews to cite what Japan thinks of a game is stupid as fuck. Any major release gets bombed with 1*s by people who haven't even played the game just parroting the complaints they've heard.

Probably why it's selling like shit compared to the others.

People shouldn't have to spend another $200 for better graphics and controls so soon.

>>283554058
Wait till you get to endgame
4U has a much larger difficulty curve, beginning is easier than any other MH but endgame is far harder than any other MH game.

Sucks.
Would have been better if it sold like shit.

Capcom needs a fire under it's ass if we want to see them doing anything with the franchise instead of regurgitating the same shit every other year.

It' only on the 3DS so that they have an excuse to keep using the graphics from their PS2 game.

This is actually very true. It surprised me since they have had this stereotype in America of being really great video game players on average. In reality they are far more casual than Americans. Not counting the hardcore gooks that play SF competitively for example.

For the US release of Portable 3rd HD sony wanted capcom to put in achievements and work around the fact that ad-hoc wasn't a service the US had.

Capcom said no, sony said the hell you said, and now Monster Hunter 4U is on the 3DS. It probably doesn't help that Nintendo is bending over backwards for MonHun, What with trying to push it in the west and all. The fact that the 3DS is cheaper to develop for is icing on the cake.

However, these are mostly rumors and are most of the time baseless. Nintendo could have just given capcom a big ol bag of money

>>
>>283556343
Sony didn't do anything. 3DS was announced way before Vita, and came out way before as well. Capcom wanted to get a new MH out the door as soon as possible.

MHP3 was simply to put out a game on a platform that already had an install base for the series, which is why it was so half-assed and felt rushed.

>>283556760
Other way around. Capcom wanted to put out P3rd, but Ad-hoc Party wasn't updated in the west so netplay wouldn't work, and Sony didn't want to update AHP for one game.

>it's more grindy than most MMOs
people who say this either have not played MMO's or have not played MH.

a grindy session of monster hunter is 5-10 in a row of the same monster that are never quite the same and by the end of the session you have become much better at fighting the monster but still have room to improve, you generally learn a few new ways to avoid attacks more efficiently and cut time off your run each time. unless you farm with bros and just breeze through it and have a great time prancing and organizing your attacks.

grinding in an mmo is spending a week farming moles because of a 0.01% chance of dropping a 3-slot weapon. every mole is easy, every mole is the same, and every time you fight one you use the same rotation of abilities. when you get the weapon you now have to fill the three slots with 0.01% drops from other enemies that are more difficult and spaced farther apart.

Not a big surprise there, MH sells like crazy. Even then, your source says shipped, not sold.
>>
>>283552567
>just dark souls
there are differences. dark souls has that whole block, strafe, and counter system that makes it feel like it's built around fighting a bunch of other enemies who follow similar rules that you do (ton of humanoid enemies even up through the endgame and a lot of monster enemies that still are stopped by shields and have counterable attacks)
monster hunter isn't really built around a lock on feature and your attacks are generally a lot slower. your positioning is a lot more important, the armor, weapon, and consumable systems have a lot more depth, and it also focuses much more on boss-fights than level traversal.
>>
The only Monster Hunter I've played has been MH3U on the Wii U and I love it. However, I really don't understand what exactly about this series screams "portable gaming." Can someone explain that to me?
>>
>>283560843
hunts are the right length of time for when you're riding public transit to work or on your lunch break. playing with friends means they need their own screen anyways because there's simply too much shit to show on a split screen, so if you want to play with your friend a console means you are both at home over an internet connection while a handheld means you are hanging out and talking to each other while bashing monster faces in.

also the wiiu sold like shit and it's nintendo's franchise now.
