What does /v/ think of Monster hunter X?
I only got to 4 stars, but so far I am pretty disappointed with the lack of new content, the freedom unite maps are cool and all, but I'd much rather have new maps. I feel like an idiot for jumping over MH4 for this, but then again, I only started the game.
So, am I really an idiot for skipping MH4 which is a superior game? Or have I not played enough of X?
You haven't played enough of X to understand and appreciate just how far its come since 4 and 4U.
I'm playing 4U now, and I'm coming to really appreciate the complexity of the Charge Blade and it's 3 different styles you can play it. Compared to the Switch Axe, which was the most complex transforming weapon in Tri, it's clear lessons were learned and improved upon.
Not according to the wiki.
It has more content than 4, but not 4U, although the gap of monsters between X and 4U is very small, the big difference is the G rank armor sets.
every monster hunter game feels like an expansion, but with random content removed for no reason (only for it to return next game.)
with the way things are going i don't even know if i want mhx, but i my friends want to play as cats.
mounting monsters ruined the game, so at least we can have fun as cats jumping around mounting shit.
it'll be my last mh i think.
You being able to jump like a lunatic on monsters is not the same thing as underwater fighting and that other thing in MH4 that I don't really understand how it works because I haven't played it.
Capcom said that underwater battle in 3 were very unpolished, so they made something new in Mh4, that is what I was referring to, and it involves hunting on all axis, it's just not underwater.
>I'm disappointed in an anniversary game having old content
Stop the fucking presses. Fucking idiots I swear.
I'm rather enjoying the game myself, my main gripe is, although I'm low star, things dying too fast. I'm wrecking these monsters and I feel bad for them. I hope they get way harder once I get to high star.
they're a little bit harder in HR, the main challenge comes from multi-monster quests not decreasing the base HP of the monsters.
Also Variants, they feel like G Monsters in a game where there's only High Rank
Obligatory why are they still making this game on shit consoles instead of the better vita or ps4 console you stupid fucks comment.
Does anyone here no what Airu village games are like?
are they playable without knowing japanese?
Don't have a Jap 3DS. Is it any good, turbo weebs? I'm finally starting to get burnt out of MH4U after HR 590.
>I'm finally starting to get burnt out of MH4U after HR 590.
>tfw burnt out at HR5
Lazy gamers ww@
I don't know about /v/ as a whole but I find X to be pure trash.
It just threw everything that made MH great and unique for the Japanese market (weighted movesets and good monster designs) in favor of generic JRPG tier flashy supermoves.
3U served as a G version for both Tri and P3rd. Amatsu was turned into Abyssal.
Capcom was asked about it before X's launch. A G version depends entirely on feedback.
>every monster hunter game feels like an expansion, but with random content removed for no reason (only for it to return next game.)
This guy gets it. They are systematically removing contents so that they can return them again in future games under the guise of "new gen improvements" which is really nothing but adding new attacks.
MH had "cool flashy moves" since MH2, what with GS charge, LS Spirit Combo, and the entirety of Switch Axe, Insect Glaive and Charge Blade. 90% of the hunting arts are usually just longer or better versions of moves the weapon already has, like hammer's Typhoon is just the spin. 90% of them are useless, slow and lock you in place, thus making your complaint about "weighted movesets" completely out of place considering you have to more careful than usually if you want to use them.
Monster design is probably you having shit taste.
I don't want to fuck around with my 3DS or get a jap one, but I really want to try X.
How are the sales looking? Is XU in the West looking plausible?
Same skeleton all around but unique and simplistic designs.
Gen 2 had solid designs, got a bit silly with conga and rajang but a nice step-up.
Gen 3 had top tier monster designs with the exception of 3U, sadly they were mostly boring fights.
4 is more or less like 2 with great designs, got a bit crazy with Magala but it's a dragon so that's expected.
X just feels like some other studio made the new monsters like the team handling the MMO. They look extremely out of place by MH standards and fight like cartoons.
They're nothing compared to Dinovaldo, who manage to be both overdesigned looking and infuriating to fight because of those fucking bites.
And I'm not even same shitposter as him.
Really? Gamuto feels like a G2 monster right away you can tell he was made for the Snowy Mountain regions as if him and 6-8 they were made to be together. He's so fucking big he just throws his weight around as attacks, hardly seems cartoony at all to me.
Dinovaldo is super standard and fights the most like a combination of existing monsters. MH wiki lists one of his notes as
>Dinovaldo's concept was a Land-Based Rathalos.
Seems more like a mashup of different monsters to me.
Tamamitsune is probably who you're talking about the most but really it fits right in with existing Leviathans desu, it seems flashy and over-the-top but next to monsters like Agnkator and Lagiacrus not really.
Design-wise I have no idea where you're getting
>Some other studio made the new monsters like the team handling the MMO
Whole post discarded. You wouldn't recognize something overdesigned if they threw it on your face. I mean someone that thinks that Godzilla is overdesigned couldn't be anything else but dumb.
>You're pirateing a console!
>Oh, were you charging your hammer? Better roll into you!
>Oh, are you playing gunner? better roll into you from across the map ignoring literally everyone else
>Oh, are you climbing up this really big wall? Let me make a perfectly timed roll that hits you just as you reach the top so you fall all the way back down. wasting precious time
>Running away from that monster? let me roll into you and trip you up so take that charging Monoblos horn up your ass
NOT EVEN FUCKING RHENOPLOS WAS THIS FUCKING IRRITATING, KONCHU ARE BASICALLY ONE STEP BELOW BULLFANGO IN TERMS OF COMPLETE FAGGOTRY
Gamuto's AOEs whenever it stomps with its snow boots made it clear they couldn't come up with an idea how to make a damn elephant threatening. You either bring a gun and cheese him, or suffer as a blademaster, no middle ground whatsoever.
>You're pirating a console.
>When you bought a fucking console in the first place.
>This is also somehow the same as getting games digitally at no cost to you at all with no physical copy on hand.
You bought a ntsc 3ds, not ntsc-j 3ds. You are violating the terms and regulation by playing a jap game. Nintendo meant for you to buy a jap 3ds to play jap games. If you wanna be a moralfag, do it right.
>Go in for GS charge chain
>Draw Charge lv3, nailed it
>Smash charge lv3, right in the kisser
>Go for the follow up swing
>KONCHU BLOCK OUTTA FUCKING NOWHERE
>Garuga books it and flies
>Catch up to him the next area
>That fucking Konchu cockblocked my kill
I'm just glad my nigga Agna is back, but I'll miss his G Rank Armor.
Who am I kidding, we're only getting MHXU.
Can the 3DS even handle a U version of MHX? They should jsut release it for Wii U. THAT'LL sell the Wii U some sales.
Nintendo never meant for you to buy Jap games or consoles in the first place. This is why it's region locked. It was suppose to stay in japan. You are messing with their demographic. Owing either goes against what the company wants.
>tfw steady hand so my sword ignores the faggots when they get in my way
Regios X is associated with shitters but holy fuck this set goes so good with Rogue Sedition
