Muggshotter wrote:I kno rite?! They were the first weapons I ever tried back in Freedom Unite demo -which was my first touch with this series-. They look cool and have somewhat high damage output for solo'ing. SnS is too good in Tri, maybe that's why Dual Swords were left out.
They were totally buffed in Portable 3rd, the whole moveset for those weapons were changed plus METER MANAGEMENT.

Did you get HD? Everything about it seems great I really want to buy it, but my Japanese isn't so good...

Do you think there ever will be? Unfortunately I'm thinking they're sticking to portables after HD.
LordDynasty wrote:Dual Swords were just the coolest thing. I was shocked when I first crafted them in Monster Hunter 1 and then I went online with them it was an awesome adrenaline filled weapon. Even if I was bad at it, it was still fun to play around with.
LordDynasty wrote:It would have been ESPECIALLY FUN IN FREE HUNT.
Muggshotter wrote:I did and I love every bit of it. Crossplay between PS3 and PSP is GDLK. My Japanese isn't so good either (you'll get used to the fundamental navigation with time), but luckily there's an English wiki for the whole game which goes much more in detail than the regular MH wiki.
JewWario's also got a "You Can Play This!" -episode on his website which should help you get started on the game should you get it. The PS3 versions can do online together as well, it's so good on so many levels.
Muggshotter wrote:Considering there will be another Monster Hunter (4 in this case) on 3DS some time after Tri G I find it unlikely. And if you ask me, the MH4 will probably released either 2012 December -seeing how there's been an MH game on a yearly basis in Japan- or distant 2013.
What Capcom should do is localize either of these 3DS games considering they cannot bypass the overseas criteria for PS3 which again includes trophy support (to prevent hackers having their fun) and the modified version Ad-Hoc Party which seems to be quite a problem to create.
Muggshotter wrote:By the way, in Tri G you can have more than four people in a guild hall (Tanjia Port). This was ultimately a killer in Tri's online - The room of four was full, no more players in. The restriction was retarded considering the nature of online. Talk about a step forward.
LordDynasty wrote:If you say it's easy to get used to I'll buy HD after Christmas. How much would it be if I bought it over net?
LordDynasty wrote:Wait, more than 4 people in the guild hall? or more than 4 people on a hunt?
Muggshotter wrote:I'm glad you asked.
Well, Tri G's been out for two months now and quite frankly I stopped giving a damn when I found myself grinding for Rathalos tails yet again -something I had to do in both Tri and Portable 3rd- so I've only got 46 hours of playtime in.
MH 3 (tri) G
*The opening movie teased a new elder dragon at the end. Legends (and the internet) know it as "Guran-Miraosu" (or as I like to call it "Gran Mirache"). Said to share physical resemblance to that of MH1's legendary Joseph- I mean, Fatalis and is the first elder dragon in the history of MH to be able to fought on both land and underwater. Can be first hunted at HR7, which is G-rank territory.
Yes, despite the small time frame they had with this game Capcom managed to gather a choir to perform it's own theme.
* Lots of subspecies, Jhen Mohran & Ceadeus got one . Rare subspecies of Lagiacrus and Nargacuga have been discovered at underwater ruins (Lagia) and unexplored towers (Narga). With that said the Tower #3 area from Freedom Unite returns and you can hunt the new Narga, plus rare Rathalos & Rathian (YES THEY SAW THROUGH ME). Supposedly the theme from Freedom Unite is still the same.
* Plenty of download quests. Hurr.
* Portable 3rd monsters -save for Aoashira, Rangurotora, Urcusis & G. Froggi- are exclusive to higher rank quests, even the Mountain Stream area.
* Day & Night shifting between quests is no longer featured in the Moga Village. However Free Hunt has now High Rank equivalent monsters and materials. I saw Baggi at Deserted Island when I chose the night time (High Rank), no joke. o_o
* Both MH Tri G & MH wikis are certainly taking their time to give out more information. The list of quests is what mostly worries me and some weapon upgrade trees.
* Circle Pad Pro accessory will be mandatory to play the game. In other words, you can probably expect another 3DS hardware revision with the second slide pad in mind.
* The concept gameplay trailer you saw was actually played in real time and wasn't "just conceptual gameplay". Make of that what you will.
* Throwing my two zennies at the release date: Monster Hunter's had games coming out every year, kind of like NHL and WWE games for example. If Capcom is willing to go the distance, Japan will have another 3DS Monster Hunter this Holiday Season. I doubt it, but I wouldn't completely write it off.[/spoiler]
And MH on Vita? No words on a Monster Hunter being based on Vita's hardware, but the console is supposed to play your digital PSP games so if you've got two different PSN accounts (JPN and some other) you can play both Portable 3rd and Freedom Unite on your Vita. That's as close to MH Vita you'll be getting for now as far as I know.
Frontier Online's been going at us lately as well. Forward 3 update is coming now with... at least two new monsters to boot. A giant enemy crab and the first Brute Wyvern to be featured in Frontier Online. Things are looking pretty nasty over there. Wish the rest of us got some of that, on X360 to be specific. I mean, if Capcom wants to make a buck out of it, that is. ;D
Pretty sweet stuff. I'm taking my time with Tri G for now since I prefer to get something out of the good $525 I spent for the ability to play the game.
LordDynasty wrote:Wow seems awesome, I'm guessing you have not hunted this Grand Mirache yet? Perhaps it's a Jose- Fatalis subspecies?
LordDynasty wrote:Wow the subspecies for Lagiacrus would seem pretty sweet. I've seen Deviljho subspecies (which scare the hell out of me). They never fail to put out those Rathlos and Rathian subspecies.
LordDynasty wrote:I thought Aoashira was a low rank quest in Portable 3rd?
LordDynasty wrote:2. I though Free Hunt was taken out?
LordDynasty wrote:3. The fact that extremely high ranked monsters appear in Free Hunt seems like so much fun, no consequences just full on battle.
LordDynasty wrote:4. O_O but Baggis don't belong there. Perhaps he was lost. There must be a major backstory for that Baggi, he must have traveled a long way. I DEMAND BAGGI BACKSTORY DLC.
LordDynasty wrote:* Both MH Tri G & MH wikis are certainly taking their time to give out more information. The list of quests is what mostly worries me and some weapon upgrade trees.
That's good to know just incase they don't put out English releases anytime soon.

O_O THATS AWESOME. I heard some people are disappointed for some reason, can't remember why though?
LordDynasty wrote:I was thinking the same thing, but I don't think MH4 is going to come out this year, perhaps a Portable 3rd revision?
LordDynasty wrote:Well since Monster Hunter is the best selling PSP series in Japan, I guess we could assume they'll have one.
LordDynasty wrote:A distant dream, A DREAM THAT WE MUST TAKE BY FORCE. WITH A PARTY OF 4, IN G RANK GEAR. WITH AT LEAST ONE GUNNER, ONE GS AND TWO DUAL WIELDERS.
LordDynasty wrote:The Mecca of all things Monster Hunter. Monster Hunter Frontier, well Muggsy it is a distant dream for us.
I mean, can you imagine Dual Swords with the new Slime effect? Dat slime supposedly explodes after being in contact with something for a while. OH MAN OH MAN. SO MUCH RAPE TO BE HAD WITH THOSE BABIES.
Well, what did look more to you: Monster Hunter or Hunter Jumper? ;D
There's been a main MH game every year (in Japan). If it's not MH4, then I don't know what it will be because they can do whatever the heck they want with Frontier Online and they're pulling random mobile phone games and Felyne Villages out of their arm pits. We'll see.
Yeah. It's actually been digitally distributed on the Japanese PSN Store from what I could see during my browsing. Wasn't too expensive either and I'd gun for it myself given I had the money to spare for it.
Or a Hammer user! Actually, MAKE IT FOUR LANCES. Wyvern acupunction at it's finest!
And for a night it was a reality for me - I actually got myself in the Frontier servers with the trial on P- *shot*

Mugg? MUGG?! MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGG!!!
LordDynasty wrote:Sorry for the double post wanted to make this separate, but is it really only us actively playing Monster Hunter? I find it strange that a website of this many members and only two of them are playing Monster Hunter, I wouldn't mind having a Monster Hunter Freedom Unite Tekken Nation Ad-Hoc Party.

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHAT?! THATS SOUNDS SO FLIPPIN AWESOME. TELL ME MORE SHOW ME MORE.

"Muggy has fainted."
*Returning to camp...*
... okaaayh. Moving on.
Yeah, it's just the two of us (BROFIST, MAN) To be honest I'm not surprised. Monster Hunter's always been enjoying cult following overseas and despite being THE hunting game in it's genre it still struggles to find it's audience outside Japan. There's gotta be something else to it. I mean, the games are pretty cheap by now. Perhaps PSP just blows -which I do not agree on thanks to it's games- and the game's not on PS3 -which it actually is now- which puts people off here.
But consider this: How many are willing to spend hundreds of hours with combat system that can kick you in the nuts with it's looooong recovery times on everything? It's pretty obvious if you look around.
I know UnKnown Drive once played the first Monster Hunter and Warrior Princess has MH Tri but doesn't seem to play it that much from what I know. I have no theories to explain why there's not enough interest in the game. This thread should just be renamed "LordDynasty and Muggshotter's Monster Hunter thread."
I prefer to play Monster Hunter with people I already know. I'd totally join a hunting season with y'all.
Minegarde forum's got instructions on how you can sneak your way in the servers. You would have to go through lots of trouble to get to the point where you can even play the trial. Then there's even another guide to subscribe to the services. Simply put you really have to have the motivation to play it or else it won't be worth the trouble you have to go through making up your kanjis, getting all the files and masking your IP and stuff. But then again, it's all we have, at least until the game makes it overseas -if it will- so it's pretty inevitable if you decide to tackle through the game.

I've heard that Monster Hunter Tri is great for n00by beginners like myself. Thoughts?
