      Kind of sucks people usually have their music off, or other tracks over the game. If a game has good music, I put the music above all other sounds lol.

    3. Fishcake

      Fishcake

      Oh it is? I would love to listen to it in it's entirety. D: And yeah most streams I find of BnS have music put over everything :/

    4. Ryochan

      Ryochan

      That full theme will be in Episode 6 of my mini series =).

  2. Adulthood vs Childhood

  3. A whole new donte~ Beautiful.

  4. I'd probably get these weps purely for looks. I love stage 2 & 3 the most :embarrassed:

    4. Button

      Button

      Best one so far is Ksi or Slenderman.

  6. SCP.......

    This game and Ao Oni are 2 "seemingly" low quality games that I will never ever touch again :amazed:
  7. I found one sort of like these a while back: Why do the majority seem to be lyns? :amazed:
  8. Thanks, to the both of you :joss_stick:
  9. Any chance you know of any videos showing these new emotes? o:
  10. Good/Evil

    Evil because their outfits ingame generally look better to me.
  11. I've been searching around, and I couldn't find any exact info so I'm here to ask incase there may be other MH fans here. What I'd like to know is wether there are multiplayer-only monsters in the upcoming US release of MH3 Ultimate for the 3ds. (WiiU online multiplayer isn't an option for me) And which if any, they are. I remember in Tri, there were certain monsters you could only encounter while online, and I'm worried since not many of my friends even own a 3ds, nor show any interest in Monster Hunter. >_<
  12. Hell yeah! PSY & Hammer on the same stage XD http://youtu.be/akDaSZoE5Pw

    1. Shinaji

      Shinaji

      That was the best!

  13. Insane gameplay of Blade Master

    All dem blocks... Well here's to hoping I'll have a good enough computer & internet connection to pull off such timed skills. ;_;
  14. 11.7 --The 3rd Wave! Lyn Blade Master~

    I cant even...all these adorable feels... Calling it, I wont be able to even make it past the customization screen with the lyns. :upset:
  15. General account limit

    He's directly asking what sort of account selling site he can go to, which im sure isn't allowed here :confuse:
