Did you guys ever get into the MH series? I didn't. Pplayed the demo on PS2 and that was it. I also found a lot of the games required saves or something from other games to unlock content which is something I hate,

This new one looks really awesome, but damn, the community is extremely toxic.

I had the first one on ps2 I think, had no clue what i was doing, got to some area with dinosaurs, couldn't figure out the combat(right stick swings swords?) and died. Or at least I think it was monster hunter, funny this series eclipsed me and it's still going.

Whys this in the other games section? Isn't this series the older brother of Dragons Dogma? Both Action RPGs. Is it because of the weird monster hunting tech?

I wasn't really sure because I've never played the series.

I think it's safe to say it's firmly action after watching the posted stream, its really the closest thing to Dragons Dogma 2 around.

It's got some legit tech man, like crazy shit with crazy hybrid weapons with weird move sets and combo strings.

I don't think I can be bothered. Heard it was quite a grind. Might rent it when it's out though and see. I'm interested to see how the bow combat is.

It's similar to Dragons Dogma, you got charge shots of all kinds and can do a aerial barrage/acid rain shot type also. Theirs also actual bowguns too, straight up guns with shell casings. There's a character for everyone in this, I'm pretty stocked to see this unfold, but I'll have to be weary of the grind.

Monster Hunter was very popular in the East because it was a huge grind-fest, and still played like a PS2 game in a lot of aspects. World is apparently focusing on the West, so probably a lot more streamlined. 

I am moving this to "Other Action Games" though.

Mechanics look great and super varied, each class is totally unique and really well though out. I'm really interested in this but I might get tired of fighting big monsters, well there are jobber dinos too. Grinding remains to be seen, I'm not concerned about that yet.

There's a demo out for PS+ only members. Might look into it this weekend.

Edit: the beta is over. Wtf?

I decided not to get this game. It isn't bad, but it's not my dish.

I played an archer and the gameplay was decent. I really don't like how damage is based on range though. I had to be too close to really do anything which kinda defeats the purpose to me. Make me die on one hit, I don't care, but don't make me go near scary monsters.

I mentioned getting this in the other topic. Forgot I already made this one ages ago.

I just did an early quest involving hunting down my first large monster. This giant yellow lizard thing.

Pretty interesting stuff. In the first encounter, it came at me with a lunge or claw swipe. Pretty easy to dodge and shoot in the face. Soon it got tired and ran, so I chased it down and fought it in a forest. It did the same attacks, but what I didn't realize at first was that I had pursued it into a den of the smaller versions and they all attacked me at once.

Still easy enough to dodge and I used a nearby tunnel as a choke point. The big guy ran again so I chased him outside into an earlier area near where you start the game, and here's where stuff got really interesting.

In this area, there are these peaceful dinosaurs. From a distance I fought they were fighting the lizard, but when I got closer I saw he was swallowing one whole. He was really fat after this, and his moveset completely changed.

He could do this run in a straight line in an attempt to mow you down, and another cool move where he runs, then swerves putting his body side on to you, then starts rolling like a log.

I didn't expect any of this. It didn't seem scripted either, just what can possible happen depending on where they run and what monsters are out and about. Looking at some of the encyclopedia entries, it says whether or not the monsters will fight.

I can imagine a 4 player team with multiple monsters running into each other would be utter chaos and super fun.

Speaking of only, I couldn't get any games under 'beginner'. I guess there aren't many new players these days. I made a topic on the MHW board on Gamefaqs. The reply I got wasn't insulting, but you can taste the elitism. SOS is for the weak, if you weren't aware.

I don't even know what SOS is. That said, it is a bit of a shame - something a lot of games have these days - where you're best off just rushing to the end to get to the 'real game' basically. Shame.

The series is insanely popular in Asia though, to the point there's pornography of the dragons and dolls of them you can have sex with. It is insane how big it is.

Liking the mechanics so far?

SOS is where you use a flare to signal other players to help you. Ive never used it but I assume it's similar to summoning in Souls.

Im gonna forget I read the second part lol.

The bow mechanics are pretty cool. Definitely got me interested so I'll try getting through the main quests and see what happens.

There tons of other mechanics though like crafting, weird cat friend/helper with his own systems. A lot of it Im not too sure on yet.

I'm moving up in the (Monster Hunter) world.

Dropping these beasts is extremely satisfying.

Edit: Wow, some serious shit can go down in this game. I was playing online with two others and we chased this ugly chameleon thing into a clearing, only to find a dragon and T-rex thing having an all out battle. The one we were chasing got involved slightly then ran, so we left that scene.

I checked the monster's details later and found it likes to bully little monsters but runs from big ones.

In an area, it seems these monsters are all wandering the map and could possibly encounter each other.

I'm quite liking the game so far, but it sucks being at such a low rank.

Interesting, does the game try to 'simulate' an ecosystem of sorts? That monsters also hunt each-other? That's pretty interesting, can imagine luring a monster to another and letting them wreck each other in that case! How is the online? Souls-like in its setup or more of a lobby system?

Not entirely sure. I've just seen them doing stuff.

Some won't attack unless they're attacked, and in that case would pass each other by I guess. Others go nuts at anything that moves. Smaller ones run from bigger ones. I've seen them attacking and eating others, but not sure if there's a pattern to it.

That monsters also hunt each-other?
I know they have areas where they live, but it seems they can go anywhere once you beat them down and they retreat. This is usually the point where they're more likely to run onto another's territory. Can't say for sure if they actually go out and hunt stuff or attack other than randomly coming across another monster. I've seen them range quite far at times. Not sure what the limit is. One known exception would be a water type I fought that only went between it's starting area and a nearby swamp.

can imagine luring a monster to another and letting them wreck each other in that case!
In most cases I'm fighting for my life and haven't tried to actually bait them to another location. All the times have been coincidence, but once it happens you can sit back and let it unfold. They monster will still retreat when hurt enough though. I've never actually seen the bigger ones kill each other.

Should be doable though. I know I've backed off and had a monster chase me into another area so leading them like this should work. But they aren't always there.

How is the online? Souls-like in its setup or more of a lobby system?
To be honest, I know very little how these things work. No idea how Souls works.

In MHW, you can start your own session, with whatever restrictions, or join others. Go to the notice board and you can choose to post a quest or join one if anyone else posted.

I started building a bowgun. Will see how it goes.

The cool thing is you can change weapon anytime and your stats and abilities come from your equipment so you're never stuck in one build, though you'll need equipment with abilities that boost that weapon.

So with the bowgun, I'd need to make some different armor that suits it, instead of the stuff I have now that supports the bows special shot and charge arrows.

Sounds like an interesting system, but doesn't it as such also kind of negate the point of having multiple characters? Since your main guy can be anything?

I think the only reason people would have more than 1 character is because they want male and female or some other customization. I'm not sure if you can change your character's look later.

They can't do everything at once. You can only carry one weapon at a time and if you want to change you have to go back to your camp. You can do this whenever in a quest but I think most do this to resupply. I know I said anytime, what I meant was you aren't locked into one weapon forever.

Due to your abilities being tied to gear, you have to switch your armor as well as your weapon. Like right now, if I go back to camp and switch to this bowgun I just made, it will perform quite badly if I keep all the armor on that supports my bow. I haven't made any armor that has abilities related to the bowgun yet.

This is how builds are made in MHW. When you get the real good equipment, they have gem slots so you can further customize to your playstyle.

So it's more like respec. You can make as many weapons and armor sets as you want, and equip to suit what you'll be facing in a quest.

Now that I've advanced and my hunter rank went up, the game introduces new monsters and more powerful versions of old ones.

There's an event going on now.

One of the quests has a super version of Great Jagras. When this version eats and uses its vomit attack, every part leaves behind decorations. I sometimes get a whole page worth. Always end this quest with at least 2 level 3 gems and a few level 2s. Got a Pierce 3 yesterday which is exactly what I needed for my heavy bowgun with pierce ammo 3.

Working on doing these events and getting gems.

I've made three new light bowguns, fire, water, and lightning. Each have rapid fire for those ammo types. Also made armor to support them.

It just seems like a game I would need to spend a lot of time on to really see what it has to offer, unless I’m wrong. I’m just going to be pretty busy for the next couple months and I don’t know if it’s worthy trying to get in to.

Probably not then.

I only play a few hours here during the week if I have time after work, and a bit more on weekends so I progress quite slowly.

The Witcher collab just released. Haven't played it yet but watched some videos. Kinda weird.

Now I'm just trying to power up my weapons. The Great Jagras quest got me tons of gems, including the rare bow/bowgun related ones.

Still need to farm Elder Dragons for streamstones which are so dumb. Basically, you can further augment your weapons, but you need one of these stones. Worse, it has to be related to the weapon you want to augment and there's no way to control which will drop. I either get low quality, or for the weapons I don't use. Pisses me off.

I have to say, I love the maps. Each area is pretty large, and has ton of interconnecting paths, nooks and crannies, and same parts have layers.

For example, the Ancient forest has a network of vines and roots creating pathways through the tree tops, and underground caves. Recently I've been doing free roam (called 'Expeditions') where you have no time limit and are free to gather resources. I'm finding quite a few little places I never knew existed.

Ah, MHW, the only game I know of where you can play for 3 hours straight and accomplish NOTHING.

Trying to make an ice bowgun and need this dragon's tail. I sever the tail and carve it and...don't get a tail.
