  4. Monster Hunter 3G - Hunter Note

    Near as I can tell from reviews, this was released in anticipation of the 3DS port of Monster Hunter 3G, and is mostly basic game info and pretty much useless as a guide. Strictly a cash-in on Monster Hunter's enormous popularity, it seems. 127 pgs published December 1, 2011

  14. Looking at the table of contents, everything seems to be there, though the page numbers are different. To further clarify what may have happened, here's a quote from Retrodefense's writeup on that issue's database page: So, as far as we know, no pages are missing.
  15. Western games in Japan

    Given how many names I see in Hiragana or Katakana online, playing multiplayer games, I'd say the digital age is closing the gap somewhat. You're right that there were some excellent western games over the years, and it would have been unfortunate to have not been able to experience them. It goes both ways as well... I recall how disappointed a lot of folks in my group were that we wouldn't be able to play Dragonball GT unless we shelled out a TON of money for it since it was such a small release here... That, and what I wouldn't have done to play a Rurouni Kenshin or Cowboy Bebop game back in the day! Knew about them, but unfortunately never got the chance. Japan had similar measures of protectionism in regards to their auto industry back in the day, so perhaps they stuck to their "Made in Japan" attitude toward gaming as well. Nothing wrong with a little bit of nationalistic pride when it comes to art and production. The car subject is a topic I could discuss in another thread though, so I'll not clutter this one up. Shame about Worms though, the early console ports were embarrassingly slow to play compared to the PC version. Not like you needed a super powerful PC to play it even, it was likely just porting issues causing the slowdown. Consoles definitely had their place though... both from a budget and accessibility standpoint. So I'm grateful for the massive variety of games that we got to experience thanks to the Japanese development side of gaming. I mean, I could start listing off some of my favorite console exclusives, but we'd be here all day!
