Nintendo 3DS

Shouldn't a demo give you a good taste of what the game's like? If the demo's nothing like the game then what's the point of a demo?

On another track, can any of our fine ambassadors tell me what the new auto-brightness function's like on the new 3DS's?

It's not just the demo, honey. It's the game itself. It takes a good few days of playing (often the same quests numerous times) before you realise how great it is.

I was expecting it this year, but I'm surprised we're getting the New 3DS so soon, & on the same day as Majora's Mask 3D to boot.

I was aiming for a digital version of that game, but I don't care for Gold consoles, so it looks like I'll be getting a plain New 3DS XL, transferring all my stuff onto it (which may take a while, I have a lot 3DS games downloaded) & then finally getting MM3D from the e-shop to play on it.

The demo focuses on the combat with the different available weapons and the hunting. On easy mode you are kitted out with awesome gear and weapons and it pin points you to exactly where you need to go for your kills.

In the real game you need to farm for materials and monster parts (which you get from killing / trapping monsters in different ways) and creating your gear and weapons.

You also need to hunt your prey and lure the big hunts out sometimes. Track them by splatting them and getting to them as fast as you can when they run away to regain their health, learning the maps and shortcuts and hideouts is vital to chasing them down. Recognising the cues for their attacks and dodging them and figuring out the best opening for a big powerful charged hit is all part of the game. On easy mode on the demo, none of that is really necessary. :)

I absolutely love playing with friends and hunting the big hunts and struggling for ages and everyone is out of pots, someone has fainted loads, and you have one more chance to get that stupid beasty and you all start taking loads of care and whittling away and you get him. It's exhilarating.

I'll be buying the limited bundle but I want a physical copy of the game, fancy buying my download code instead of spending it on the e-shop, provided I manage to bag one once they are up for pre-order?

I wish Nintendo would be a bit clearer about this New 3DS strategy. Is this really their new console or what? The way Reggie spoke about it in the Direct made it seem like it was but they've only announced one game that takes advantage of it. Most of the new hardware features seem pointless if nothing's really ever going to take advantage of them.

I see, so you just assign your new 3DS to your current Nintendo ID?

No. There's a System Transfer option in Settings that you should use.

Think of it as a 3DSi. Just something to keep them going until the next handheld.

I didn't realise they were actually limiting the demo codes for MH4. In that case here's my spares (since I don't have any Nintendo friends!)

A076N1Q3098MXP81

A076Y2P91DV90ABQ

A076P3YF0AJ3PWXW

I managed to use the first and the third is gone to some arsehole who didn't bother to post about it. Thanks!

I'm so happy we're getting the black one and that the two limited edition XL models look far worse than the small one with a good faceplate (Monster Hunter! Kirby!). I imported a white JP one at launch and didn't realise that the Australians only got white too, so happy they'll be different colours. I am well looking forward to downsizing as I do find the XL a bit cumbersome. All in all a smashing wee Direct and what and expensive day the 13th is going to be.

Yep, if that MH4 demo was meant to persuade to buy the game... Nope.

Apologies to fans, but to me it was just a very ugly, poorly animated, frustratingly controlled, annoying sounding, achingly repetitive, charmless button masher.

I can add it to SSB as games I just cannot fathom the appeal of (another demo that just left me bemused and totally uninvolved). But more power to you if either or both of these titles tickle your pickle.

Here you go folks:

I'm afraid the demo has left me just as underwhelmed as MH3U did. It's just not my kind of thing. Don't shoot me!

Thanks. Used the middle one.

Edit: And my brother's nabbed the top'un.
