Welcome to the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate thread! This will be our headquarters for coordinating our Hunts, sharing stories of war, and helpful hints for our brothers-in-arms, compatriots, friends, and neighbors. Please be mindful of folks' different definitions of "spoilers," and remember that not EVERYBODY played Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii, though everybody totally should've.
The "burden" of running this thread has been placed upon me but...I can't do it alone. I will lean on Maxi and others to help with the heavy lifting occasionally, both in planning things and also in feeding this thread. Please keep it bumped (once we get going). If you could, let us know if you're getting this game, WHEN you're getting this game, and what your aspirations are so we can get us situated in groups with likeminded people. Do you want to barely play this game? Is this going to be your new #1? The most fun with this game is had when you get to go out with a group of guys week in week out, so if we can find someone with a schedule similar to yours, you'll have the most fun with it.
Hey! I got a call from Ivy at GameStop today, and the game will be out at midnight tomorrow. (I haven't confirmed with my location though..)
Yeah it says it is available on e-shop then as well I am excited. Why release it the same week as Lego? Nintendo does strange things with their dates. I am getting both, but spread titles out to avoid droughts... duh.
It doesn't Day 1 but it is coming with the update for connected servers in April. http://www.capcom-unity.com/dubindoh/blog/2013/02/28/monster-hunter-3-ultimate-software-update-adds-cross-region-online-and-off-tv-play
The Guild Card was in past games before Tri and it was basically a way to keep track of everything you did in the game if I recall correctly from one of the podcasts I watched. Such info is this. They were little cards that you could send to one another that showed various information about the player, such as equipment, awards, training school/arena records, weapon usages, total monster kills, and other stuff like that. Also is shows quest history, so you can see how often the said players dies in their previous hunts. I know in Tri they had Equipment,Awards, Total monster kills in various places when you pulled up menus but the guild card has those and many other things in one place.
