Yeah i like it.
But i wish it was longer, the missions are really fun but they squeeze your balls too hard.
I wish there was a more relaxed mode like in 2.
I really, REALLY think the WiiU should get at least one last pikmin game that is the definitive one and has all the good things of the previous games including a sort of "free mode" with no pressure.
But it won't happen unfortunately.

I really liked it.
But I preferred the feel of 2 more I think.
It was a bit more relaxed and the multi level dungeons where pretty fun.
This one felt like they where trying to harken back to what made 1 a challenging experience without chasing away the people who liked 2.
>>
>>258384678
It's like >>258382368 says. Pikmin 3 doesn't utilize everything the other 2 games did well. Even if purple pikmin were op they could rebalance in some way.

That's why IMO is the best of the 3. It combines both the pressure of the first one without losing the most comfy feeling of 2.
Fruit mechanic was perfect and I hop it returned in a future Pikmin.
>Plz let it be a future Pikmin
>>
>>258382742
I fucking tell you, they're in cahoots together with the fruit industry.
Whenever I play the game I get the urge to buy all sorts of fruits and make smoothies out of them
>>
>>258384572
>>258384450
>>258384331
Actually Mission Mode uses Purples and Whites quite a lot. Whites are needed for a lot of transportation bits and there's plenty of fruit that rely on Purples to carry.
>>
>>258385653
Duuuuude. I bought a fruit blender after finishing Pikmin 3. I'm not kidding.

I also love how Nintendo apparently is behind the times in graphics yet somehow managed to create something so photorealistic it could fool someone to think it's a real photo of a fruit.

How are Pikmin 1 and 2's Wii versions?

>>258386024
They're the same thing as the GCN versions, but with pointer control.
It actually works really well, but it tires my wrist a bit. You also get a little bit more range with it than the GCN controls.

I don't want to point, i want to hold a controller.
I think the wiimotes are inferior to any other controller simply for the fact that you even have to point.
I brought a WiiU JUST because motion controls aren't shoved in your face.
I completely hate motion controls of any kind, i hate holding wiimotes, i think they're awful in every possible way, i jut want a normal controller and the WiiU gave me just that.
>>
its aight but I dislike how easy everything is

they dont even try to surprise you anymore, they warn you about everything

like half the fun of pikmin was being trolled by some of the enemies

and in pikmin 2 they got rid of that

also the game is too short, I'm bored of it at 40 ish hours.
>>
>>258385006

Well they did balance Purple Pikmin by limiting them to Mission mode, when you're limited by such a strict time frame they're(and also white Pikmin) are balanced.

Though I think they might have nerfed their abilities as well since they didn't seem to be as good in combat as I remember.

They should also add the "Go Here!" function for Pikmin 2 if they do that. So Louie or the President aren't dead weight or just an extra health bar outside of a few situations.

Everyone on Hocotate learns that PNF-404 is full of treasure, you have to compete with them to collect enough treasure. Story mode is a combination of Pikmin 2 and 3, Mission Mode is you battling against other computer-controlled Pikmin captains over the treasure in the area.

Wouldn't the Pikmin have a bias towards helping Olimar more then anyone else so he could just whistle them all over if he bumps into another captain?

When you see the lime by the nearest wall/pool, throw two captains up there and then throw one of them to the group of purples, getting the purples early saves you so much time since they can carry any fruit other then bananas by selves.

Also when you get the flying Pikmin, use them to gather the two nearest gold piles before you use them to open the gate.

I actually thought it was the weakest Pikmin yet. I didn't really enjoy the maps and some of the fruit relied on using the wiimote, and since I was using the pad it became tough as shit.

I think the time/stress element quickly became less overbearing after about 5 days and then you stockpiled fruit like no ones business. Pikmin 1 balanced it nicely in comparison.

The last boss was a pain in the dick and honestly I hated that whole level. dune boss and crystal catepillar were the best bosses tho

>>258396921
I can do all of the other bosses just fine, but the issue is Louie takes all of your juice so it doesn't matter what your stockpile is. You also can't leave the area right away to get any boss fruit you might have left behind in other areas because you have no juice for the night. I suppose I could leave the crawmad's fruit behind and grab it right away after Louie's thievery, but then that means I only get one day each for the crawmad and the phosbat, as that's as far as the beginning juice will go. I'm just not that good.

They're pretty good, just as long as your playing screen is the gamepad and not the television, otherwise you'll be blindly tapping.

>>258397897
Not really. It's much more complex and multitasking, while in NL is basically touch the enemies until they die.
The controls are different since you move both the captain and the pointer, but I didn't have a problem with NL iN the first place.

Game is amazing, go for it.

>>258397024
Pikmin 3 is the best one because not only are the mechanics the most polished, but because it's entirely about self imposed challenge. You can play it as casually as you want, which in your case seems to be very much so.
>>
>>258402527
I'm pretty sure the Wraith can't go into water so drop Olimar there and it can't do shit while you build a path.

Make Brittany run around in circles while you build your path. You never actually need 3 captains. This way you can take one day to build the path, get Olimar out and return the next day to fight the wraith.

I got in this series thanks to Dolphin emulator and I was pretty much blown away from Pikmin, finished it in 26 days and losing like 50% of my Pikmin ever sprouted on first playthrough and did a second one immediactly after and finished in 16 days losing about 10% of my Pikmin.
Now I'm playing 2 and dungeons and more types of Pikmins are ton of fun, but I sorta miss 1's atmosphere and sense of impendent time limit and I liked the above ground areas a bit more. I guess I'll buy a WiiU+Pikmin 3 eventually to thanks Shiggy.

Also, am I supposed to be losing a ton of Pikmin on dungeon bosses? Man-at-Legs killed of like 50 of my Pikmin and the Mother Bulblax with the bulborb larvas killed like 70, mostly with the larvas, and I had the exactly 15 Pikmins required to get the treasure, 12 of which were Bulbmins.

I JUST got a platinum medal on the third Enemy stage. They're a lot harder than the Fruit ones because you actually have to be there to oversee the fight, usually. Once you bolster the pikmin numbers you can usually just have them swarm an enemy and then switch to another captain.

I got so much use out of Pikmin 3. Easily my most worthwhile Wii U game. Downloaded all the DLC and played 'em all to death, though I find it impossible to get all the platnium medals.

Mind you, I'm really hoping Conduit 3 or The Grinder haven't been cancelled. make an appearance soon. The console is so starved for a good new FPS, it's getting really annoying.

>>258407224
Yes. Well, it's one way. Get the Yellow pikmin to carry the bombs, then toss them up on a ledge as the long legs passes by, and it'll deal tons of damage to it and get rid of the hair, then just spam yellow pikmin at the head till it ded.

Bulborbs are relatively easy to kill with a swarm of like, 20-30 red pikmin.

I actually didn't have many, if any, pikmin drown against that boss. Mainly because I had a bunch of blues (since I used them to get to that point) and once I saw the area, just went in with blue and stone pikmin. I switched over to a full blue set on the next day, too.

I had a lot of pikmin get eaten by the tongue, though.

No, I saw it happen my first playthrough. I had Brittany and Olimar stand in the pool of water while I had Alph and Charlie split up and do their business. Since it can't go into water and get Olimar, it would come after whoever I was in control of. I specially had to switch to one captain to bait it away from another captain in order to open a safe path. It reminded me a lot of the bloyster boss in 2.

Well, I will say that you do find the Dolphin in Pikmin 3. Or at least a similar ship; not sure if it was specificall the Dolphin.

>>258414931
>help!
Why are you splitting up your team when going into an unfamiliar part of the map?

I generally just grab 15 of each type, and march off with everyone. If there is something I want another person to do, then it's usually something that I'm familiar with and so I'll grab the pikmin required for that job. Mostly this is just gathering berries for the pikmin-boosting juices, and so five pikmin with someone to watch them is usually just fine.

I always hate it when I misplan something and a large number of pikmin die. I'm not quite sure which is worse: accidentally drowning a bunch because they carried something into the water, or just something stupid like having them walk into fire. Or just loosing track of which pikmin I have and accidentally pitching the wrong ones at an enemy: typically because I ran out of reds against a fire enemy, ran out of blues when trying to hit something over the water, etc.

And then, there is assuming a route is clear when an enemy has respawned in it. "Oh, those pikmin should be fine! I'll just let them walk back safely and take care of this... what do you mean pikmin are dying?!"
>>
Beat only Pikmin 1. This is much better by far. It feels tighter and it's 100% comfier. I was really impressed considering the first trailers didn't make the graphics look too hot.

I could just go in fps mode and take snapshots all day. Bingo battles are always fun as hell with the boulder items. Also, best looking fruit in vidya period.

I really wish this game had dungeons and c-stick swarming. Tapping the dismiss button to get them to all attack is nowhere near as effective since it requires me to be right next to an enemy
>>
>>258421797
>>258421909
You can lock onto an enemy, then press B.

But I agree. The c-stick controls were great, and I am very much disappointed in losing them in Pikmin 3. They were very good for swarming, for getting pikmin out of the way of something, and for in general moving around easily. I can't count the number of times I've been running around an enemy, and just been frustrated because my large group of pikmin just keeps trailing behind me and standing in the way of an attack.

Other than that, I didn't much like the caves and so I don't mind them being gone.

Don't forget the premise of the story was less interesting as well.

I feel like it could've been longer, it could've used more enemies, it could've used more bosses, it could've used more upgrade items, it could have used a more interesting collectible than fruit (the random objects from the second game, with their descriptions and everything, were perfect), and it could've used a story co-op mode.

Other than that, a great game.
>>
>>
>>258437901
I think in 1 all the pieces come together perfectly. They really nailed the "you are stuck on an alien planet; survive" thing. Especially with the logs at the end of the day.
I think 2 sort of trivialized how hardcore the planet is supposed to be. Despite having tons of content that expands on the concept in interesting ways, I thought a lot was overreaching. In 1, each enemy was unique in appearance, had different mechanics, and fit with the world. In 2, you have shit like the little spiders, where they're specialized to the pikmins' resistances and the Gatling Groink which doesn't fit the world, like >>258434973 said.
I think 3 returns to form like 1, while keeping good elements of 2: multiple captains, sort-of caves, etc. It also makes excellent use of the Wii U hardware. It's way too short though, it's too linear, and they overdid the "eldritch horror" thing with the bosses.

Are you guys sure Pikmin 3 is too short? Couldn't it just be that it's the third game you're playing? I also found it "too short", but I've seen so many comments in places like miiverse from new players that are taking forever to beat it and even more to get all the fruit.

I didn't find it too short. Especially with replaying it now a second time, I'm finding that it does take awhile to get through and it's satisfying to do so. That, combined with challenge missions, makes me quite happy with the game.
>>
>>258439753
Would it be accurate to say 2 eased a lot of the players or set the relax level too high for newer ones?
>>
>>258440096
Me, too. I think this game is easily the best to replay with how the files work, you can just go back to any day and fix your mistakes instead of starting a new game. And on second playthroughs, you get all the map from the get go and can skip cutscenes.

>>258439487
It's short when compared to 2, but standing by itself it's just fine.

>>implying Pikmin 1 is hard
If Pikmin 1 was your first Pikmin game, it should've been challenging as fuck. If you found it easy, but found 2 hard, then I don't know what to say.
>>
>>258439487

Pikmin 1 had 30 ship parts to collect and ~30 enemies in 5 levels. 5 challenge levels.
Pikmin 2 had 201 treasures to collect and ~70 enemies in 4 levels and 14 caves. 30 challenge levels. 10 battle levels.
Pikmin 3 had 30 unique fruits (66 total) to collect and ~50 enemies in 5 levels. 14 challenge levels (30 with DLC). 12 bingo battle levels.

I can translate this into more useful numbers.

Reward to Challenge Ratio: divide number of collectables by number of enemies (RtCR).
1) 1.0
2) 2.9
3) 0.6 or 1.3, averaging to 1.0 (depends if you count repeats of fruits)
1 -> 2) almost 200% increase
2 -> 3) decrease of about 45%, 60%, or 80% depending how you count fruit

Reward to Space Ratio: divide number of collectables by number of areas. This is mostly important with Pikmin 2, since I'll count each cave as 1 area (RtSR).
1) 6.0
2) 11.2
3) 6.0 or 13.2, avg. 9.6
1 -> 2) almost 100% increase
2 -> 3) decrease of about 46% or 14%, or increase of 18%, depends how you count fruit.
>>
>>258443863
what a nerd
>>
>>258443863
What I take from this is that Pikmin 2 clearly had more content, but it was less dense.

By this I mean 2 had the least variation in the enemies you would fight (high RtCR) relative to the rewards you would get. Pikmin 2 does dole out treasures more often than 1 doles parts or 3 doles fruit, however. To compensate, let's factor in the RtSR.

RtSR / RtCR or creatures divided by space is challenge per space (CpS), which indicates how "spread out" the unique combat content is.
1) 6.0
2) 3.9
3) 10.0
1 -> 2) decrease of 35%
2 -> 3) increase of 160%
1 -> 3) increase of 67%
This bears out what I felt was apparent from playing the games. Pikmin 2 spreads its new content pretty thin compared to 1, and 3 is a big jump in the "density" of content.

Note: environmental hazards and emergent challenge from matching different enemies in a location are not accounted for here and are a critical component of Pikmin 2.

Also Note: derived numbers are based only on the story modes.

>>258443863
wow anon-san you're so smart

No, that sounds exactly like how the player should feel. But I'll give you a super easy trick that will make your life a lot easier.
At the beginning, have Brittany run around in circles between the area with the butterflies and the area with the red bulborbs, with ten Pikmin carrying Olimar. Then, have your other two captain clear the rest of the dungeon. You can clear the entire dungeon in a day this way and never have to fight the plasm wraith on your way. Make sure you get Olimar out by the end of the day, though, otherwise you'll lose time having to carry him at the beginning of the next one. If you can't make it in a day, make sure you clear the shortcuts, at least.

Koppaites talkin' shit about Hocotatians because they like to hoard treasure.

Was my first pikmin game and it really is just amazing. I really liked the touch screen controls that were apparently added in later so most people didn't get to use them.

Really is a comfy game, and then you accidently lose 50 pikmin and you just feel guilty.
>>
>>258452301
The 3 captains are Koppaites.
The old 2 from Pikmin 1 & 2 are Hocotatians.
>>
>>258452059
I'd recommend it completely. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best game on that console currently. It may be painfully short, but it's a fantastic experience while it lasts.

A new Pikmin species with a specialized leaf on its head that allows it to glide in the air. However, with Winged Pikmin, it would be redundant as hell.

No you don't understand. I have it and beat it, but I got it as a free game with Mario Kart 8. I strategically waited so I'd have to pay less, but now I feel partially responsible for the games sales.

I actually want to go out and buy a copy when the price drops. Pikmin 3 is easily one of the best games I've played recently, and I'd like a physical copy. I just don't want to spend $60 on it.
>>
>>258452628
Acro Pikmin
Color: Cyan
Characteristic: Very slender and tall.
How to use them: Draw from point A to B while holding one.
(OBS: Captains and other Pikmin can climb up to unreachable places by climbing Acro Pikmin.)

I recommend the other 2. They're available for the Wii, so you can also play them on the Wii U. I'd definitely recommend the Wii control versions in general, too. The pointer helps a ton for aiming. Each game is deliberately a different experience, sort of like Mario Kart. They each take a somewhat different approach. I'd say play 1 and then 2.
>>
>>258452973
Cyan Pikmin would be great in a game where you can actually explore at night. They could be bio-luminescent, and help to light up dark caves that you would others have trouble seeing in.
>>
>>258452793
New Species for Pikmin 4 are Green and Orange.

Green have barbed fingers and can't be shaken off by enemies they are also the best diggers and will get stuck on wooly/furry enemies

Orange are fat and bounce when thrown additionally they float on water and they can glow in the dark.

I'd say just use greens, give them the ability to not be shaken off, and allow them to use their barbs to build bridges and towers. Nothing major, but a line across some water or up a ledge for progress.

Why are Rock pikmin so perfect to tear a new hole in the Plasma Wraith?
>>
>>258453169
Yes. Especially since 3 has a sequel hook anyway and Louie got left behind on the planet. I'd actually prefer an interquel that takes place during pikmin 2, where you play as Koppaites or other non-Hocotatians and keep running into Louie commanding the planet's monsters and culminates with them trapping him on the titan dweevil.
>>
>>258453371
Pikmin 4, really? I could've sworn I read somewhere that Miyamoto always intended for Pikmin to be a trilogy (though I can't seem to find where), and it's sales don't exactly denote a sequel, either.

Aren't they immune to being stabbed? The Wraith can't stab them with its arms, and so you can just keep throwing them and calling them back for damage. I just used a bunch of reds against it, and so didn't even try rock pikmin.

Towards the end, though, where it's throwing out elemental attacks, they might not be that great.
>>
>>258454559

>>258454332
What were the sales like?
>>
>>258452796
I'm not sure what one extra sale could do for it, it's not like everyone who used the same method to obtain the game feel the guilt they rightly should for cheating the game of a sale. Which is a real shame.
>>
>>258398513
the wiiu may have lesser hardware than the other next gen, but nintendo know how to use their hardware.

They still haven't even fully explored Pikmin though, no night time, no linked levels, no garden growing.

Kinda off-topic but still on the topic of "Future Earth":

Valley of Repose is a snowed over road and a sidewalk, complete with a manhole.

Perplexing Pool is a bathroom.
>>
>>258454894
What I did was had a captain distract him while the other took out a specific core with the other Pikmin. This was near the end, though. Sometimes I'd get lucky and he'd spawn two crystal cores.
>>
>>258455340
This is the key. Also, nintendo isn't stupid and is aware of how many copies people got as part of a promotional deal. Pikmin 3 was only available with Mario Kart 8 because they thought it wasn't popular enough to impact sales. I imagine they won't put it in the same tier as nintendoland or wii fit u for the next installment.
>>
>>258455604
Isn't Perplexing Pool also Distant Spring? The layout is almost the same.
>>
>>258455119
Eh, every vote counts. I mean 90% of people who do a pay what you want scheme don't pay anything, but the 10% who do are the ones who are giving all the support.
I already bought Pikmin 1 and 2 twice each when the Wii Play Control versions came out.

Yes. 2 and 3 include levels based on levels in previous games. IIRC the most blatant one is that the last level in 2 is the first level in 1.
