If I passed up a post by mistake in regards to my question, I apologize. I have a retail disc of MH3 and a back up on the external HDD (with my current IOS settings installed I'm 99.5% positive it will run flawlessly right off the bat), so the other .5% goes to my question: does the game require the Wii Speak Channel to be installed in order for it to run without a possible issue arising during gameplay? As of now I do not have the channel installed. (Why? Mainly due to laziness and to avoid clutter by flooding the system menu with any unnecessary installations.) Call it silly, I'm just paranoid to run the game until I can ease the tension by knowing if that channel is actually needed without a possible brick. It may not matter, but I'm also running 4.1u system menu. Appreciate any form of reply.
