Monster Hunter is a franchise that went from rags to riches in a matter of a few years, thanks to the three main PSP instalments. Becoming one of the fastest selling games in Japan, Monster Hunter Freedom 2 is one of my all-time greatest videogames, and my passion is shared greatly throughout the Neoseeker community.

The premise of Monster Hunter is fairly simple; you create a rookie hunter and plunge him into the perilous universe of Capcom's Action RPG. Firstly, you will be acquainted with the variety of different weapons and items before heading out to kill your first prey. You will be troubled with menial tasks such as gathering herbs and killing smaller beasts, but several hours down the road and you will have hit the cream of the crop.

The rest of the game will be spent killing the larger foes, then scouring their dead husks for materials. These can then be used to upgrade armour and weaponry; building the best gear is seen as the long-term objective of the game.

Monster Hunter Freedom 2 isn't just a single player experience though. Sitting down with a few mates and booting up individual copies of the game will allow up to four players access to the multiplayer component. Though it's not executed to perfection, the ad-hoc play is superb and one of my most memorable gaming highlights.

The one thing I absolutely detested about the game was the lack of real online play, that means no Xlink or Ad-Hoc Party. When Monster Hunter Freedom 2 G was announced, I thought the obvious solution would have been to include infrastructure, but sadly it was excluded, and so I lost faith in portable Monster Hunter titles.

It's 2010 now, and Monster Hunter is already branching onto the Wii and Xbox 360 with online focuses. For Capcom and the MH team to ignore online support for the next PSP-based Monster Hunter would literally be diabolical. Just for reference, it's not only MHF2 that is betrayed by the lack of online support, Phantasy Star Portable also suffers from the exact same problems.

brilliant game but like the first one after a while loses its touch MonsterHunterFreedom2 PSP

What a big day today in Tokyo. We had an amazing day yesterday. Where to begin?

Starting off the day at 7AM, we caught the Ginza Line Subway to the Dai-Hi (sp?) Hotel, where we had a Tokyo tour from 9AM-6PM around the city. The subway in Tokyo is extremely efficient. The trains are amazingly clean for a Subway. Windows are perfect (no grafitti or scratches), floor is completely void of litter. Something like thatyou'll probably never find elsewhere in the world.

Funnily enough, the entire tour group consisted of just my family (Adam, Father and Mother and myelf). So we practically had the entire tour and bus to ourselves. Our tour guide, Izumi-San, was a very nice lady who was a very enjoyable person and great guide; always complimenting us on returning to the bus (after an amount of free time exploring permitted) on-time, and I guess that doesn't happen often with large crowds. On the trip, we visited loads of places, gardens, palaces and took a ferry ride. Though I can't remember quite exactly where we went (I don't have the brochure on me at this time), it was an overally amazing experience. Unfortunately, no Mt. Fuji. It was raining and overcast at the time, and we couldn't see it at all. The trip went so well that it ended about 5PM. I think Izumi was pleased about that too, as she was prepared to have the bus driver stop us off where-ever we wanted. Feeling a need to do some shopping arond the city, we set off towards the great SONY building.

The entire building was around 7 floors, showcasing all the different Sony products on offer. Sone of them were way ahead of their time, such as camera which would auto-detect facial recognitions and automatically take a picture when it detected a smile. Another camera had special 'anti-shake' capabilities, which showcased just how well it handled against the shakiness of the human arm. The televisions (all great widescreen LCDs) had an amazing HD picture. Around the 6 floor came the SONY Shop Floor. Finding this to be the perfect oppurtunity to buy a new PSP battery, I asked at the counter. I bought 2 new 2200 mAh PSP batteries for both myself and Adam, at a nice \5,400.

Just when I thought that was enough for the day, we went to a larger Toy Store, of only 6 floors. At the 4th (There were 2 basement floors, so 4th was top) floor, guess what we found? yeah, that's right, MONSTER HUNTER. Oh, and a bit of METAL GEAR. I took as many pictures as possible, practically the entire section. Monster Hunter bags, towels, Poogie Bank, Felyne Plushies, Trading/Fighting Cards, Badges, Rinds, Jewellery, Action Figures, Weapon Figures, Monster Figures, T-Shirts, Posters, Jig-Saw Posters, the list goes on my friends. Imagine my surprise when I was told that my Mum was willing to buy an assortment of these as my Birthday and Christmas gift.

To list what we got:
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #1 - Silver Rathalos (Rare)
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #1 - Narga-Kuga
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #1 - Kut-Ku Pair (Both Original and Colour Variant)
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #3 - Khezu
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #3 - Red Shogun Ceanatuar
  • Monster Hunter Action Figrue #3 - Gravios
  • Monster Hunter Badges
  • 2x Monster Hunter Tri Poster
  • Monster Hunter Tri Insignia Keychain
  • Monster Hunter Carry Bag
  • Metal Gear Collection #2 KUBRIK - Old Snake (With Octocamo Facemask
  • Metal Gear Collection #2 KUBRIK - Solidus Snake
  • Metal Gear Collection #2 KUBRIK - Old Snake (Ultra Rare Crystal Version)
I think that is a pretty neat result. What I would have hoped for instead of Solidus would have been a PMC Soldier. The Khezu, Ceanatuar and Gravios all could have been a Ragiakurusu. Other than that, the turnout was pleasing.

Unfortuanately, the Narga-Kuga actually was missing part of it's tail (entire figure is seperated into 3 pieces) so Adam is currently trying to find a way to contact Capcom and get that missing piece. Wish him all the best, and maybe if you can, help him out too.
