This is a thread for anything related to Monster Hunter and all of the games. Monster Hunter has a huge online co-op element so being able to get a group together that can talk before and after fights is a huge help. Monster Hunter is a difficult, depth filled action game about hunting monsters. These aren't your normal dungeon monsters though. These are (usually) massive beasts taking 10-40 minutes to take down. The entire game is essentially a series of boss fights with each monster being unique and fun. Combat is more than button mashing though (actually, button mashing is the best way to die). Instead, it is about careful timing, learning a monster's weaknesses and tells, and taking advantage of every opportunity. Messing up is punished heavily with monsters dealing massive damage with each hit and having massive amounts of health. Difficulty wise, I have seen it compared to Dark Souls although I have never played Dark Souls. The game takes some patience to learn and will destroy you at first, but once you get the hang of it and find a weapon class that works for you, it is tons of fun. Speaking of weapons, there are many different types ranging from slow but damaging great swords, speedy dual blades, and long range bow guns. All of them play completely differently. One of my favorite, the insect glaive, features an insect that can be launched to attack from a short distance. I promise it is much cooler than it sounds . Overall, the game is incredibly fun featuring all kinds of monsters and massive replay value. If you have a recent Nintendo console, you can pick up either 4u or gen depending on what you have. The game is rated teen. Here is a video of one of the monsters in the game. This is the monster on the cover of 4u and an incredibly fun fight. This player seems to be pretty good at the game although you can see where one mistake snowballs into a loss of 3/4 of the player's health. This is one of the harder fights towards the end of low rank. (low, high, then G). The weapons being used is a long sword. I like to play as a Insect Glaive Great Sword user in 4u and dual blades in 3u. I am HR7 and 10* in 4u.Does anyone else have the game and want to hunt some monsters or just discuss it?
