Posted by arawk

OMG YES! 
 
But seriously I miss this game!

....so it's pokémans?

Posted by Hey_There

At first I thought it was just Monster Farm DS getting released here 2 years late, but I'm glad to see that it's Monster Farm DS 2.

Dude...DUDE! I'm all for some mean boomerang jumping.

Could not care less.

Posted by JackSukeru

Oh, well this looks enough like Monster Rancher 2 that.. I DON'T WANT TO PLAY THAT GAME EVER AGAIN!

Posted by Double0hFor

Monster Rancher still exists?

Posted by Xeiphyer

Monster Rancher is kinda fun.. The old ones were neat atleast. I like the weird contrived methods of creating monsters =P The best was the old PS1 game where you can put random DVDs and games into your PS1 to see what monster it makes.

I'm pretty excited for this

Posted by KuribosShoe

they should have a mode where you can use gba games to generate monsters

That would be cool.  I'm sure they could figure out some kind of alternative for DSi users too.
But as someone who's never played these games before, I really struggled watching that trailer to work out what this game is even supposed to be about.
 
And why I should care with the Gold and Silver Pokemon remakes coming in March.

wow i haven't heard about monster hunter for a loong while, game looks corny though

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Oh how that brings me back.  A friend of mine had it on ps1 and we would scrounge around his house for any cd's or games of whatever we could fit into the ps1 to see what monster it would make. For some reason Half Life always created some monster that was way too strong for us. Never got to find out what it could have been.

I quite enjoyed this series on the PS1. Putting in CDs to find what monster would come out was incredibly addictive. Hopefully they'll come up with something equivalently interesting for this and I may pick it up.

Good trailer in regards to actually show the game. I think i fully understand what it is about and why im staying away.

Awesome music.

I remember watching this show but the games all looked so bad. And I'm past the age where something like this would interest me.
 
Anyone remember the first time "Suezo" teleported for the first time?  That episode was so intense.

I LOVE MONSTER RACNHER!

Posted by Cerza

OMG! IT'S MONSTER RANCHER!!! I used to love these games back on the PS1 & PS2. The nostalgia... oh man it's all coming back to me...

Posted by kerikxi

Been dying for a new MR game for years. I've lost countless hours to every version of these games in the past, right back to the original classic on PSX. Unfortunately, looks like they oversimplified the combat system in this one. Ranching and fighting were complex and interesting in equal parts.

The games were way better than the show.

The best thing to come of Monster Rancher is the theme song from the show. "I was transported to a far away land. To a world where monsters rule..."

Posted by ImperiousRix

The thing is, to me, the big deal with Monster Rancher was the whole, "YOUR CDS HOLD MONSTERS INSIDE THEM!" schpeel.  With that gone, I'm not very intrigued at all.

Monsters on a ranch that just sounds dangerous.

Posted by JohnTheGamer

This is quite timely as I bought a Monster Rancher DVD from a dollar store pretty recently. The show isn't great now, but I remember watching it as a kid. Always thought it was so cool that you could put your CDs in to get new creatures, never played a game though.

Edited by Demonstride

Man it's been so long since I have seen Monster Rancher. Then again, I was always more of a Digimon fan.

this video didn't give me an erection, so man law dictates i pass on this game. man law has spoken.

I played Monster Rancher Advance for way too many hours. I look forward to doing it again with this!

Posted by Deathawk

Man I remember the cartoon they made based off the PS1 games, where CD's were hidden in the ground.
 
But more to the point, I don't see the appeal of a Monster Rancher game without the ability to scan some form of media and be able to create new monsters from it.

Posted by MrMiyagi

Yes! Monster Rancher!

Posted by Xpgamer7
@RobotHamster:
Rancher, RANCHER. monster hunter is about killing monsters and scavenging their remains so you can create tools and level up to kill bigger monsters. Rancher is about raising monsters to fight each other and creating monsters by scanning cds.

Ah man I still have my PS1 copy of Monster Rancher. I'll prob give it a look see.

Posted by Driadon
@Zeik: From what the trailer shows, it looks like you will have to draw symbols/pictures with the touchscreen and that will create a monster.  If it's anything like the GBA Monster Rancher games, it'll likely save whatever was entered if you want to summon that monster again.

no interest

Wow... is been a while.

@KuribosShoe:
 BIG A55 problem with that. we have the ds lite with gba slot dsi with no gba slot but 2 cameras Dsi XL the same
 and soon 3Ds with motion sensor (tilting), cameras  and and more pronouced 3d graphics. so games now  look 5/10x better than they did on the normal ds games. what i do like the idea of is to somehow swap ds carts but they figured something out already so u neat ideas is now broken....
