Managed to "play" 3 hours yesterday, but, here's the thing, I never got past the character creation screen. As ridiculous as that sounds, the editor, while not too deep, it's deep enough to waste my time putting details here and there on my MC. To top it off, there are THREE characters you must customize. The dog and cat don't have too many options available but you still can change their colors however you like, so here you have me experimenting with every possible combination. It's horrifying, and I know I only have myself to blame for this but I love and hate when games have this option. 

I opened the detailed character editor... saw the amount of options... thought: nope!... choose a preset and confirmed. Ready to go!

My first MH game ever. So far I like it but to me the combat is still challangeing. Right now it’s more button mashing than controlled movements. I also have a hard time figuring out how to effectivley bind the monsters with wire bugs, they mostley seem to get away from me before I have a chance to deal any damage.

What I learned in the beginning on Monster Hunter Tri and still works: in differences to enemies in other games the monsters here are living things. If you dodge their attacks early on (learn to dodge, it's important) they wear themself out and start to get tired. This leads to them stopping after a move, a chance for you to get a hit or two in. If it has taken some damage and is tired, it might even stnd still for about 5 seconds or so. Try to look for these openings and deal your damage at that point.

I'm 11 hours in and loving it! The wirebug attacks bring back the combat depth that I missed from older MonHun games. Currently running around as a Gunlance user. I love that you can aim up while charging a shell. Midair shots via ZL + ZR are great for hitting tall monsters in the head! Using ZL + X to uppercut monsters, and then firing 3 shells midair makes fighting flyers a breeze! The wirebug counter to sharpen your gunlance mid fight is great too. 

Kinda annoyed that the game has MTX in it, but at least they are stupidly cheap and would only set you back $19.99 for all the DLC.

What weapon are you using?

Try to learn the monster's tells; they all have certain vocal and movement cues that tell you what move they're going to do next, allowing you to evade and position yourself for a counterattack.

You can make the fights easier by exploring the map to gather buffs from endemic life before heading to your prey, or eating a meal in the village before starting the quest.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I've kind of found love in dual blades :)

But I'm gettin better, it's just a learning curve, specially since I have no previous MH experience. 

Strongest memory so far was my bout with Aknosom (only had one so far), I managed to kill it with less than 1 minute left on the quest timer :P

Now I'm perplexed because it fled back to it's nest, where there are wyvern eggs that you can pick up but not bring back from the mission. Guess I'll figure out what those are for later on. 

But the game is currently a bit overwhelming, I mean I pick up tons of plants and crafting materials that I never use. Maybe I should start to figure out when to use dung bombs and the like.

Try not to worry about all the extra materials and stuff; as you start forging and crafting and upgrading later into the game, almost all of it will come in useful eventually, it's good to get into the habit of foraging as you go so you run into less shortages later.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this will perform on PC compared to World in both sales and graphics. Also interested in how Capcom is going to deal with MHW2 seeing as a DLSS Switch is probably in the works. I wonder if Nintendo will actually give developers the freedom to ditch the original Switch altogether in order to ease the process of porting those sweet true "next-gen" titles.

Oh, these moments when you finish the quest at the last moment are so precious.

I also found the wyvern eggs, but didn't use them yet. Speaking from past games: if you bring them back to the supply box in your camp, you get points (which relates to money+Kamura points in this game). But holding the egg restricts your movement and dodge rolls, falling or being attacked breaks the egg. Past games often had a 'deliver an egg' quest. They are a different sort of challenge. In this case I have no idea how to bring the egg back, as the nest is as far away from the camp as possible and lots of obstacles in the way. I should try if I can ride the Palamute while holding the egg, that should make this easier.

Rememeber if you want to do high level ranks and get high rank armors/weapons you must do the hub quests.. ordinary village quest doesnt get highter then low.
the hub quest can be soloed, the difficulty adjusts to 1 player



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)
