Apparently, you can connect the 3DS to the Wii U using a connector to access online play. Might only be for Japan atm, but it could come over here at some point.

Okay so based on what I've heard here, this game is probably not for me. The thing is, and this happenes a lot, I often find myself wanting to buy a certain game for instance with God Eater and more recently Ragnarok Odyssey but later I'll find out that they play similarly to MH and it sort of puts me off.

wildfire, I'm currently playing Ni no Kuni. I just got the genie that forges items.

Never understood the appeal of this series. I've tried it multiple times but end up playing for twenty minutes tops and then never touching it again. Is there a story or a final boss, is there a reason for all the hunting you're doing or is it all for some piece of loot?
we hunt monsters because they are there. and yes, for the loot. the thing about monster hunter is, the grind is enjoyable (your mileage may vary), because its basically non-stop bossfights.

single player mode has a bit of a story usually, and a final boss of sorts. in the original monster hunter tri, it had two final bosses, one from story mode, and one for multiplayer mode that was only available to hr 50+ hunters.

Got horribly wrecked by the beginner option.

Camera controls were...whyyyyy, though the game was fun. Have to do like, the claw in order to move and look around at the same time. Would have felt much smoother to me for L/R to be looking, binding the Dpad to actions instead. But this is the first time I've tried a Monster Hunter game, so idk.

Will try it out a couple more times, play around with it. Have some friends who like it a lot, but just have never had a system that could play it until now.

It's Just one of those games that yes, youre gonna get wrecked countless number of times because either youre too hasty and need to start seeing how monsters behave, thats how great this series is. Yes you'll probably quit and rage, i sure have, but part of you just wants to get back into it and it works...gives you alot of fun because it gives you so much creative ways to be variant and not just do the same thing every time (unless youre really great at that specific weapon or item combination)

This may be due to my inexperience with Monster Hunter (I've only played another demo for one of the PSP games),but I couldn't even manage to beat the Lagombi...

Whew, still attempting to beat the Lagombi. Christ, I must have whacked the thing over forty times, and it still hasn't gone down.

This is fun though!

I gotta say the Plesioth was a little harder than I remembered, but I'm gonna attribute that to being equipped with Gobul armor and Gobul Dual Swords. Fighting it underwater was almost everything I'd hoped for, but I forgot just how simple he is. Still, almost timed-out on him; killed it with a minute or two left.

Yeah they play similar, GE & MH, but GE has a decent storyline too. That's really the biggest difference, well that and your clothing doesn't matter, it's pure style. Also while you can make alot of weapons in GE there's only 3 types of blades and 3 gun types, and you can switch between both at any time which I thought was pretty neat.

Also there really is no end game boss, but there are flagship monsters which are practically end game bosses. I remember the first time I beat the Akantor/Ukanlos, nearly cried of joy.


But yeah the game probably isn't for you, as it's all about tons of farming(if you played any game in which farming was required, this game puts every one of them to shame) and co-op. The thing I loved about the games is that if you don't learn how to beat them, you could walk in with end game weapons/armour and get your ass handed to you by the low rank mosters. The crazy amount of weapons/armours is great too, not to mention the custom armour sets.

Proudly Dual Sword hunted the Lagombi in under 8 minutes (7:47, I think; I timed myself). Starting to feel comfortable again, although they do attack differently. Key is to watch for when to stop attacking, but wait to evade until the last second. Evasion skill is gonna play into choosing my armor set.

So far I've only hunted the Lagombi with Heavy Bowgun, Light Bowgun, Hunting Horn, Switch Axe, Sword and Shield, and Dual Sword.

This was the first time playing a MH game, I didn't like the bowgun at all, I guess it's meant for co-op and not solo play? Hunting Horn with the ++Movement speed was awesome but I couldn't figure out how to consistantly use it to get buffs. Favourite weapon was the Switch Axe though, and Dual Sword was pretty good.

Since there's no intro to how to play I kind of had to figure stuff out on my own, and there's some things I have no idea what they do, like the beacon for the two little dudes.

tekmosis not really man, gunning is probably the most efficient way to kill them. I mean yeah they can be used as support in co-op, but the Hunting Horn would be better for that because of the buffs.

Heavy Bowgun with Autoreload, Element attack up, Evade+2 is pretty much God mode.

Also for how to effectively use the HH buffs, click it

Basically there are certain color notes that a HH can use, and once you know which color notes you have, use them notes to get the buffs you want.
