Heyho again,

apparently i missed the e-shop sale of MH3U by a week and could bite my tongue now. So i browsed the internet a bit and retails are 50€ upwards again. The question now is, if i would get a cheap second-hand one will the online mode work? The stoned dude from a local gamestop store once told me that the second you go online with any game it gets linked to your NNID and won't work on other consoles anymore. Is that true? (google had contradicted results, so i kinda want to doublecheck first)

If that were true, there would be a much bigger community backlash (and probably at least one search result proving it). You're fine to get a used copy.

The thing is...it's a small town near the arse-end of the world and there are only two kind of employees: guys in their fourties acting all young bringing up memes and stuff and the stoners. Neither is helpfull, but seriously - if you can't trust the stoners anymore, then who is still trustworthy? QQ

Yeah, from what i heard only people that don't have a 3DS play it. Not that big of a deal tho if i look at the content.

The single player experience can still be rewarding, though unless you have friends who also play MH3U (in your region), it'll become dull once you've sunk 100+ hours into the game. MH4U was released yesterday for the 3DS and I'm already on that, so the MH3U online community will diminish even further I'm afraid.

    my old MX518 also had the rubbery coating starting to come off, i can never get it back to un-sticky state, the harder i clean it the worse it seems to get, same thing with the wrist rest on my old keyboard too

    There are ways to sort it but they are unpleasant and expensive. Far easier to do a vinyl wrap/cover in electrical tape.

    Seems to be a more hot climate thing as well; had several in or come out of Africa with that way before I saw it in Europe

    Can also happen if you leave it in a cold, damp room for years and years.
