[QUOTE] Virtue's Last Reward has a nasty corrupt save glitch on the 3DS that will ruin everything. It occurs when you save during a certain part of the game, forgot where exactly. [/QUOTE] This is the best explanation I have ever found about it and the one I send all my friends when they asked about the bug: [i]To preface my explanation, I will tell you that this game has Novel (story) and Escape (puzzle) sections. To avoid the save corruption, never save in an Escape section, and definitely never save in the PEC, neither in the Novel nor Escape sections. (PEC stands for Pressure Exchange Chamber, but you don't need to know this, as it is always referred to by its acronym in the game.) As for the freezes, the main culprits are certain mini-games, specifically the dice mini-games (which appear in two difference puzzle rooms) and the mini-game in the PEC. With the dice mini-games, don't move the dice too quickly and you should be fine. With the other one, just hope it doesn't freeze. All in all, it sounds a lot worse than it actually is. You'll probably only encounter at most a couple of freezes in your entire run of the game, and as long as your follow the aforementioned precautions you won't lose your save file, either. [/i] It's still infuriating that they never fixed it, and the main reason I never bought it, myself. You should not play the game without having played 9/9/9 first by the way. (It seems) the two games are closely linked story-wise. [QUOTE]THRTHRHRHRTHM (did I spell that right?)[/QUOTE] Well yes I believe that is the correct spelling. You can directly skip to Curtain Call TRHTRHRHM. No need to buy the first one. I started playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate as promised. Monster Hunter is very much like natto, or cigarettes. I cannot possibly fathom how someone would enjoy it in any way the first time they try it. It has to be the curiosity, the masochism or the desire to be part of something larger that gets you into consuming either of those. Then it slowly becomes palatable, and eventually enjoyable. The only difference is that, instead of spending a shameful amount of money on nicotine that won't solve any of your problems and create a few more, you spend a shameful amount of time on killing Jaggi and failing one hour long boss fights where half the battle is against the camera. But then, after a few nauseating days, you really get into it. So yeah, now that portable Monster Hunter is more or less playable (thanks to the second stick and semi-lock) and can be enjoyed online on a handheld without requiring to buy a home console separately - [i]I mean, just how INSANE where portable MH players before such elementary issues were fixed?[/i] - you might [s]be foolish[/s] feel brave enough to join me there. I am around 10-12 hours in so still early in the game. Also if you have not played it on PC or Wii U already, Shovel Knight is a wonderful 2D platformer worthy of all the praise and hype. The 3DS version is actually my favorite of them all. Soul Hackers and SMT4 are two excellent dungeon crawlers if you are the Atlus type. Donkey Kong Returns 3D (Monster's previous port before Xenoblade 3D) is a nice platformer if you did not play it on Wii already. All that said, it seems you have nice backlog of games to catch on already.
