Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to have region-locked servers

9:00 AM on 02.08.2013 // Keith Swiader

Capcom community specialist not thrilled with decision, either

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will contain region-locked multiplayer servers, Yuri L. Araujo, Capcom's community specialist revealed on the company's official forums.

"I'm not thrilled with the servers being split, either," Araujo wrote. "I am definitely aware of the demand and feedback, not only in this thread, but also from threads before finding out these bad news; so be sure that I will pass it along. There is no guarantee this will change, though."

The response from the community was split, with some arguing against the decision to region-lock the servers, and others trying to see the reasoning behind it.

"It's just that most of the arguments for having segregated servers just don't make sense," wrote one user. "In terms of user load, the Japan servers had to deal with more users than US and EU combined. Doesn't make sense."

"Whoever thought it was 'smart' to split the servers, IMO, needs to be fired. There is absolutely no reason for NA and EU to be split, not one at all. It's actually really ****ing stupid," another user wrote.

"Not sure why everyone is so surprised," one user tried to reason. "I suppose I'd be annoyed if I couldn't game with my friends from other regions, but a deal breaker?  Surely you didn't expect combined servers to absolutely be in, right?

"Anyways, I feel for you guys but I think that raging and refusing to buy a game seems a little outrageous," the forum member added. "They've done a lot to get this game to us in any form at all, and we don't know all of the details nor the rationale for doing this yet."

And the discussion continues from there -- a constant back and forth of disappointment and attempts at reason.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch for Wii U and 3DS on March 19 in North America, and March 22 in Europe. It will offer keyboard support on the Wii U via a day-one patch.

So I'm pretty sure you all should be giving thanks to Nekro. For he is the one true perfect being. Be thankful that your lives have been blessed by the addition of a Nekro. For that is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Dtoid! Here's hoping you didn't fall off a chair while hanging Christmas lights and bash your shin and foot into the concrete like I did!

Listening to Pokémon SoulSilver OST while doing some college work. Suddenly I feel a great amount of guilty taking over me for loosing my PokéWalker 2 years ago... :(

Happy Turkeygeddon everyone! I'd like to spend it playing something, but I'm too busy drinking instead. Alcohol is better. Alcohol mixed with games is best, but unfortunately, I'm a little too lost to the world for that right now!

I've got to try Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes. Mostly because I loved pocket god when it came out. Great memories

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.
