>All things Monster Hunter
When is it acceptable to have damage sponge enemies like the monsters in MH.
I only bring it up because I was watching old bungie vidocs on Destiny wondering where it all went wrong.
A guy says one of the biggest inspirations for that game is Monster Hunter.
MH's draw is that every fight is a boss fight, without knowing how bad you're actually hurting them other than visual cues. Can't make every monster a puzzle to beat, so sponges are the only thing left.
I'm confused at how people hate it like it's a bad fight.
It's like they never bother using earplugs even once, dodging the neck or attacking it in the face or tail at the right moment.
Probably the Poogie... PROBABLY...
I just suck at fighting it. It's also annoying every time I screw up and got stunned by Baleful. His design is kinda cool, I like it a lot more than Khezu.
>the Rathalos SA and charge blade coming in 4U
>Tfw Lagiacrus won't be in 4.
>Not even the Land version.
Khezu was boring as fuck to fight, and sometimes he just stood still while I wailed on his head.
Makes me sad. He was one of the coolest new guys in Tri.
>and sometimes he just stood still while I wailed on his head.
They did that when they were on critical condition.
Like I said, literally broken AI.
They never bothered fixing it for five whole years and 5 sequels.
when it goes to the ceiling in one of the tundra's caves, its annoying as hell not being able to reach it. at least for blademasters. I figure gunners have a better time with it
Noob here, how do I choose which armour is worth wearing? I'm still early game, so what's more important, skills, or defence? Right now I have a full Jaggi set, gemmed to +2 attack, and a full Rathian set. Which should I be wearing? I'm using a great sword, if that matters.
You hunt monsters. Duh.
The beginning is a tad boring, but once you get to Peco and Barroth it starts getting more fun. Try all the weapons and use what you think is best.
Go for skills. The defense will even out through upgrading the armor. Whatever set you should be wearing should be determined by the skills you want, and beyond that (at least in my opinion) what you think looks cool that has the desired skills.
>his electricity isn't even strong enough to fix the ultimate mask
Not in this series. Though he is too easy for my tastes, but I still think he's a cool motherfucker.
I like him, too. Nimble as fuck.
Look out, we got a hard head over here.
Maybe someday they'll implement that feature.
3DS only. God damnit. 240p, how can you even see what you're looking at 5 feet away from your character? I'd just be a blob of unidentifiable pixels.
The one thing I hate about his missions is that there was a chance you would have to share the place with this asshole.
That this shit exists.
Human x Monster? Yeah, I'm not a fan of that stuff.
This one makes me cringe since I know if he doesn't wipe the shit off
his dick explodes
Why is this fucker so popular?
Maybe cause of this.
>trying to derail a Monhun thread with porn
What would even compel someone to do this
Probably the design and that he's generally the first real wyvern that you fight.
I guess. Normal Kut-Ku is superior.
Play MH P3rdHD (the PS3 version, PSP one doesnt work paradoxically) and run the translation patch for it /vg/'s MH thread should have it in a pastebin.
Or MH Freedom Unite, older and much rougher but it's where many people started too.
What? Is it edited porn or something?
It's not porn. If you are curious. But some people get certainly turned on by it.
Hold up, I got a proper non-cropped version of that picture he posted and the original on my laptop.
Oh the one posted here is not cropped.
Well, here goes.
Well, that guy probably got banned. Shame, I was hoping he'd post more Guild Sweetheart. Super qt.
Apparently their classification in Japanese is roughly translated as 'dog wyverns'.
Kinda dumb but oh well.
It has fps issues and screen tearing, but the gameplay makes it all worth it
It's like monhun meets SoTC when fighting giant monsters, where you can be legolas, guts, a real fucking wizard (summon meteors, have glaciers erupt from the ground), and do lots of other really cool and fun shit, all while giving you the feeling of being on a grand adventure
it's flawed as fuck but worth every penny.
And on the subject of monhun, looking at everything that's been released, did they up the scale of monsters in 4/4G?
Everything looks bigger compared to the hunter, even things like great jaggis and kut-kus
Things that were maybe a bit bigger than a hunter are now 2x+ the size of a hunter and such
Is it just me?
Eh. Your loss, I guess.
Dragon's Dildo would be a trillion times better on PC, though but that will never EVER happen.
All this weird stuff. I just want lewds of her.
>Charging a downed monster
>Finishing off a monster with a charge
Did you draw that, anon?
Because I'm sick of fucking seeing it.
And there are plenty more definitions!
Brachy still looks dumb, though.
Nah, the problem is that those games are for the vita
which means that I am the only person outside of the one person in japan who owns and plays them.
Thing is none of them have been around for anywhere near the amount of time monhun has, so most are still getting on their feet
toukiden is trying to basically be streamlined monhun, but lacks content
SS is incredible story, characters, music, and build variety, but at the cost of kind of ehh gameplay compared to all other monhuns
and GE2RB may eventually come west maybe, hopefully, probably not
I'm into a lot of shit but monsters just ain't my thing. Is it so wrong to want to see a qt3.14?
Heard that the sequel to SS is supposed to be a massive improvement to the original.
But eh, good luck to you anon. I don't see myself ever buying a Vita. The only reason I'm getting a 3DS next year is MH alone, anyway.
Monster Hunter is the only gaming franchise I know is going to be good when a new entry comes out.
I've lost faith in so many franchises, but Monster Hunter is the only franchise that constantly delivers the goods.
MH4U is the only game of 2015 that I know will at least be amazing. Every other game I have strong doubts about, like Bloodborne.
>get strange feeling every time seeing this image
>do i find this of familiar?
>mfw i realised
I'm so disappointed that they're benching gigginox for this fucker
He's just so boring to fight, especially since no eyes means no monster-sees-you status, meaning no fucking boss music
Why is there so little MH porn? Why is there even less MH
vore? This shit writes itself.
There are, but even then it's largely the eastern style stuff where it all falls under the category of "rape/vore/mindbreak" in that order, typically by a Khezu/Gigginox/Yamatsukami. It's really samey feeling.
Don't forget flounder. I really like Gobul's design.
She looks brown in-game, though it could just be the lighting considering this render. Either way she's adorable.
...yeah, it's usually that sort of stuff I dislike too.
Do you feel bad about monsters sometimes?
So its official, Steve now holds the title of edgiest monster of the franchise. His name is 1000 bladed wyvern. He has his own unique status affliction called laceration. And worst of all he commits violent acts against women without cause or provocation
>Los and Ian are fuckers, no sympathy for them
Leaves room for more sympathy from them.
I like her any shade, but to each their own.
>always happy to see you
>makes terrible jokes you can't help but smile at
>worries about your safety when you leave
>stood by you in killing Ceadeus
Do you just not like perfect girls or something?
Are those eggs supposed to look like breasts?
Not at all.
>always happy to see you
>makes terrible jokes you can't help but smile at
You mean want to punch her in the face.
>worries about your safety when you leave
Again, false cunt.
>stood by you in killing Ceadeus
Only because her dump of a village was in danger.
Oh gosh, that sounds like the cutest thing. I wish I could draw so I could make this happen.
Well aren't you just a bright little ray of sunshine.
Did she smash your brachy gem or something?
I like her.
I'm really going to miss my shaka buddies.
It's the mission where you fight Silver Los and Golden Ian together in the tower
They are on opposite sides of the tower and will not go anywhere near the other one, meaning if you watch your spacing you can deal with them one at a time.
So Los is sleeping on the couch
I remember one hunt where Goldie just kept walking around, occasionally turning to look as we beat the ever loving shit out of silver Los.
>"Help me, my love! The hunter are murdering me!"
>"That's nice, dear. Maybe you should have fucking made dinner once in awhile."
HIT THINGS TIL THEY DIE, DON'T GET HIT
TRY OUT ALL THE WEAPONS, USE WHAT YOU FIND FUN
ALWAYS UPGRADE WEAPONS, STICK WITH JAGGI ARMOR OR VOLVIDON ARMOR FOR LR, THEN UPGRADE TO THE HR VERSION FOR HR, ARMOR DOESN'T MEAN SHIT TIL G RANK
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR WEAPONS SHARP
If i play with other people, randoms or friends, I just play as though I'm playing solo and hope those faggots dont triple cart.
Granted I try and coach my friends into not doing stupid shit so they'll get better
>absolutely no lewd of doujins of them
For fuck's sake Japan, one's even a loli. That's your bread and butter, what gives?
Looks like that dog thing from Animal Crossing.
Are Long Swords a viable choice in MH3u?
I started with Dual Blades, /v/ told me to wait until later on to use them so I'm using a GS (Golem Blade) right now, and I love it, but I want to mix it up a bit and I feel like the up coming underwater quests I'm going to have to do will be better with a Long Sword. I can craft that chain-saw LS.
For some idea of where I am: Quropeco was the last monster I hit. Up next is the Roray Ludroth, Wroggi and then I still have to trap that fucking Quropeco.
So what's everyone's favorite armor to wear when playing fashion hunter?
Yes but lots of people will make fun of you for using it because so many people play LS badly. LS has a few sweeping attacks that will trip people you're playing with, so you need to learn to not use those attacks around other people. LS's infinite combo (at least, the one I use) doesn't have any sweeping attacks and I don't use spirit gauge attacks unless I'm well away from other people.
>I will never be able to break free of Jaggi and duel swords
It's in my blood now, no going back. In the end I curse narga armor and its missing crotch.
Still looking for male, Female I cannot break away from Jaggi, everything comes together so well. Especially when dyed light blue.
>wanting either of those instead of hunting with your shit-talking bros for life
Wait, what? Source, please.
Well I have the 3DS version so that won't be an issue until MH4u comes out.
If you could:
What are the ideal online weapons? And is the Great Sword or Dualies a good choice? those two are by far my favorite kind of weapons.
Hmm well that's really my only option until MH4u. I don't want to get into the habit of using something that won't be useful for online though so maybe I'll just stick with the GS....
Oo... well I'll probably get made fun of anyways. I definitely don't want to fuck up anyone because I suck though.. Looks like it'll be a NO for online LS....
It's not really a big deal unless you're hugging up against a bitchy lancer or something, and they shouldn't be anywhere near you unless they're trying to take off a tail, which you should already have off with your better mobility while they're still trying to trip a monster.
What are the the odds of Monster Hunter 4 2nd G?
The original packed a shit ton of content, 4G doesn't seem to be adding much new aside from weapon tweaks, one new Monster and subspecies.
The localization team loves to use archaic and rare words for nofucking reason.
So her 'name' is Guildmarm.
Also, felyne comrades are now palicos.
It's such a shit word and retards everywhere are using it like it's okay.
I believe her official title is Guildmarm. Fuck if I know what a marm is but you can bet your ass she's the guildiest.
If someone's giving you shit for using a weapon just trip the shit out of them intentionally, if they're that elitist about it they don't deserve to hunt with other people anyway
your words have inspired.
brb, bathing in blood.
Wait for a crucial moment, like when the monster is tripped, or in a trap, then knock that fucker into the sky with a hammer. Don't forget to gesture mockingly at following faceplant.
Either a Rath, Lagi, or Narga. Choosing between those three, probably Lagi.
aight, i just got the brachy set with the dios katana. i've been doing pretty well with it until i started making longswords with like 100+ higher raw damage. should i bother farming brachy for another fucking gem so i can upgrade the dios katana, or should i just use another LS?
>storms when I want
>windy woosh for upskirting when i want
>always look pissed off
Brachy weapons are quite good for most of the game.
If you like hunting it go for it.
Rule of thumb is that the new flagship's (cover monster) equipment is always overpowered.
For some reason they switched Brachy with azure rathalos in the west.
So I fought my very first Brachydios this weekend. Solo.
It took me 35 minutes and I ran out of all of my Potions, Mega Potions, and First Aid Meds. I also got carted once.
How shit am I?
As long as you don't mind hunting it for the gem, I'd say go for it. Having the Brachy weapon for whatever weapon(s) you use is useful. They're pretty good.
If you decide to, hopefully the desire sensor is generous with you...
Gigginox of course, I want to make a harem of female hunters that went down fairy easy to watch over my little Giggis. Then pick my favorite female hunter and settle down as the first monster/human tag team.
>This will never happen
These niggers are actually 100% concentrated fuck.
>Evolved giant hammer tail to knock down trees to snack on
>Grow moss on their backs and doesn't give enough fucks to clean it off
Sounds like basic herbivore stuff but actually
>Are SUPER aggressive
>like Diablos tier
>hell some Rusts have been known to go toe to toe with Black Diablos
>Rusty also gets their coloring from wearing the blood of things its fucked up
>Most of the ones fought in quests are males since females herd together to protect the young
Duramboros are fucking cool and their weapons and armour are rad.
>first time fighting him
>wow this monster moves pretty slow
>lol it's easy not to get slimed
>goes into rage
>mfw the next 5 minutes
A bit. I also fought my first one solo a couple of hours ago, having fought two total.
He is a twitchy bastard, though
I only used half of my potions, but it felt like I was going nowhere the whole time
>checking sadpanda for doujins
>24 damn pages
>most of it just generic girls in Kirin, Barioth, etc. armor
>little to no Guild Sweetheart
>literally no Guildmarm or blacksmith loli
Fuck this gay earth.
Alright, well that's good to know.
I've also been hunting a lot of Plesioth lately. I was expecting it to be horrible after hearing about its hitboxes for so long, but it's actually a cool fight. It's actually come to be my favorite underwater monster. Gonna try to make its armor.
Good ol' Jho.
Simply because of how easy life would be. All I would care about is eating and getting to the next thing I'd eat.
>There will never be a Pokemon-esqe type game where you capture Monsters similar in size to MH and battle them against others
>There will never be an in-depth breeding system to make cross-breeds not found in wild
>To make matters worse, there will never be a Monster Rancher where monsters are created via MP3 files and use a Sporestyle creation system to make unique ones for each file
>It's 2014 and the only MP3 based random games are Audio Surf and Beat Hazard type games. FF: Song Summoner the closest to combat one currently out
Why bother living bros?
yeah, farming him is my only issue. i got my first gem on my third battle with him. fought him around 30 times and haven't seen another one. maybe i'm just shit, but i also find him annoying to fight. sometimes i do really well and finish the fight in 15 minutes, and other times i cart twice and use up almost all my time and potions.
Monster Hunter x Etrian Odyssey crossover when?
No seriously, MH gameplay with EO's classes, aesthetics and monster designs would make me rock hard. Throw in Atelier's item variety/crafting system and it'd damn near be my ideal game.
Yeah i'm aware, but I was still expecting it to be a pain in the ass anyway.
My only issue with it is when it goes on land and i'm forced to rape its dick and legs because I can't reach anything else.
>Wounds never fully heal
>Getting pissed off is painful
>Have to eat species to extinction but will still manage to starve to death
>Faggots be wanting to turn your dick into a Greatsword
Eh, that's just Brachy. Sometimes he can be more of a fucker than usual. You just have to roll with the punches.
As for the gem, well, desire sensor. For extra salt from the desire sensor, hunt him with a friend and watch them get three of them in a single hunt.
You stop talking about that! We don't need to think about that right now!
Haven't you hear the noise it makes when it limps?
It goes from 'aw poor thing' to 'HOLY SHIT KILL IT TO SHUT IT UP' instantly.
How the fuck can i kill lucent narga consistently and under 30 mins?
I've tried hammer and lance and still can't seem to do enough damage before be goes crazy and won't stop doing tail slams all the time
i can kill abyssal, miralis, gold and silver raths in under 20 minutes but that asshole still gives me a hard time
Brachy is honestly one of the most predicable monsters in the game, its just that he hits like a freight train so even just misjudging something once and getting knocked at the edge of an explosion can lead to brutal fistings.
I don't mind fighting him but he's a huge pain in the ass, don't worry. His armour kinda blows, but at least make his weapon in your preferred type since not everything gets something else with Slime and its good for quests wils multiple different monsters.
>was on the first page of results
Well now I just feel silly. Thanks.
It seems to be that later prints/releases get lower quality.
At least I got mine when they were new and I think that it looks fantastic.
It's not _bad_ but it's comical.
And it looks rough in the grooves for some reason, not sure if it's intended.
This is probably the best bet. Alternatively you could attempt it with other slime weapons to be less faggy, but that may or may not allow you to hit your target time.
My Zin hunter was pre-ordered before it came out. :/
And yeah my zinogre looks like that too. He looks better from a distance. Also that roughness in the grooves is for shadowing.
Got any pictures of your los?
Yeah, sorry. It's more that over the yellow bits of him there's an ink wash to give some definition to the part and it is seriously blotchy in some places. Whoever made it wasn't thinning their inks enough.
Are you doing the villager requests? Some of those are required to get more quests I think. I know the dragonship one is. Talk to the dude standing on the box in town and if there's a red box next to one of the menu options then there's something you need to do there
Don't worry mang, I was in your boat about 200 hours ago.
I was crafting every armour that looked even remotely cool and doing all the quests
because I'm a stubborn shit who decided to main Bow and Bow only and couldn't do my urgent by myself
If its any consolation there's a cheevo for fully upgrading 10 of each weapon type + 5 G rank armour pieces for each slot
