Unpopular opinion: All of these Bethesda games have had the same exact problems for the last decade and nothing has been fixed.

The combat (shooting, in Fallout) is abysmal (as in floaty, not much reactions from the stuff being shot, not being very satisfying generally), the animations awkward and stilted, and the writing ranging from pretty good to fucking terrible (Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood on one end of the spectrum, FO3's Brotherhood of Steel and "Steel be with you" on the other end).

I don't understand why Fallout gets a pass when every shit on something like Alpha Protocol. It also had real issues with the combat being ass, but it's writing was top notch, but somehow that didn't matter.

If it's the same clunky combat, the same mediocre writing, and the same terrible Gamebryo engine, I'm going to let this one pass me by. Vote with my dollars, etc.

I think a lot of folks here are missing the actually interesting part of these games - the hidden narrative.

Though, I sort of felt like the third game's stuff got a little silly and pretty much wrapped the entire mystery up, so I'm reticent on a whole other level than most of the folks in here seem to be.

@nophilip: Which is the software I should be using these days? Last I checked, there seemed to be two competing solutions.

Regarding the insect glaive: General consensus is to just max speed until GRank, and then there is a very specific, optimal feeding guide you can go grab.

The Kinsect stuff was an interesting concept of customizing your weapon, but if you leave it up to Monster Hunter folk, they'll min-max you with the best of 'em.

@fobwashed: Hi there!

I see some other folks were able to try to buy this. I would gladly buy it as well, if at all possible. Dan Ryckert is my spirit animal.

@beachthunder: I wasn't able to get an effect just like Krampus's Head, but with the item that puts an eye on the back of your head that also shoots tears, I was able to get it coming from the front and back.

Disclaimer: If you combine this combination with Anti-Gravity tears, it gets weird.

I'm a long-time Monster Hunter fan, and I went out and grabbed a TV and Wii U just to get on some MH3U action. I'd love to play with anyone who isn't a terrible person, regardless of skill level.

In my opinion, Monster Hunter Tri is above and beyond the best game on the platform.

Edit: Just be aware, a large portion of this game is multiplayer, and the servers are finally going offline on April 30th.

I really don't understand why people are so put off by this video of the wrestling match. This is not a turn away from the series they have loved for years, it's always been dumb.

I mean, it's a series about a clone who puts mines in buckets of chicken and covers children's underwear in ether. It was always pretty dumb, in a good way.

@Adamsons: The issue is that they are limited. They only allow them to transfer to the sender's server and faction and, while I would be friendly with them, there is a very slim chance they would be interested in anything to do with our Guild on Horde Mug'thol.
