Monster Hunter: World

Recommended Posts

I've tried several of the Monster Hunter games, but this is the first one that has clicked. While still very obtuse, the basic loop of the game (Hunt - craft - hunt) makes enough sense that I have been able to remain interested while slowly learning the rest of the systems. The combat is fun and chunky, but not quite to the Dark Souls level, meaning that often connecting attacks do not affect the monster you are targeting. This lack of visual feedback seems weird in singleplayer, but makes more sense when playing with other people, as you could not all expect your contributions to stagger a beastie. I have played a few hunts online with Gareth and Kurt and it really is better with company. I feel like the later hunts will require more teamwork, and am looking forward to them. The game is already very addictive through and it is too easy to persuade yourself to do just one more hunt before bed. Only time will tell whether I remain as enamoured with the game, but the first 20 hours have been a joy.

Same here. I tried the original MH on PS2 and the PSP one, and could never make it past the opening few hours, but this had me gripped from the start. I hope the game keeps it up, but so far it really is an absolute joy. Been loving the teaming up with the NL squad too. Kurt really knows how to handle a bone pole.

I was well into this, but stopped to play Shadow of the Colossus and feel no pull to go back. Weird.

I’m the same. It is very good, but everything takes so much time. I would rather make good progress in a standard single player game.

Is that the T-Rex thing? I did one of those on my own!

That's the one. Just can't beat the Tucker so gave up and haven't gone back to it.

I'm up for getting back into the game if you want to have a go at it together?

Picked this up in the Steam sale for PC (obviously) only a few hours in, but thoroughly enjoying it (even when I die)

Doesn't feel as cheap when you die, and the combat flows really nicely other than the occasional stun lock scenarios when playing on your Todd.

Looks awesome as well, 1080P with the high res texture packs and everything near max and it runs great even on my GTX1060 6GB.

T-Rex tore me a new one, but then again I am only level 3 or 4, so did the stupid raptor thing that clubs you with a rock.

Hopefully I can find a few groups online that are still low level to team up with as single player is fine to a point, but is awesome in multiplayer.

There is a standalone expansion coming in September that I thinking of jumping back into. It is a game that does benefit from a decent group, but sadly its not going to be crossplay.

Yeah, I am just jumping into all the SOS requests where the hunter level isn't too low, seems to work pretty well, although do still get some muppets that seem unable to recognise the tells that a dragon is about to jizz hot lava everywhere.

Tearing through the chapters pretty quickly, and finally got a decent bow with elemental damage so running solo isn't such a grind anymore.

I guess it's because they sold it cheap in the Steam sale, but there seems to be a decent amount of people playing, so all good.
