very much so
EU server when?
God damn frogs ruin everything
Ok, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to find out: frenchies, why are you so shit at monster hunter?
I fucking love MH.
I was HR 300 on Tri, can't remember for FU and P3rd, 600+ in MH3U, 999 in MH4U.
But I barely passed 50 in MHGen, I think I would rather wait for MH5 (on Switch hopefully) to really get into MH again.
Gen is so fucking boring man and they fucked the controls/mechanics. Everything feels so slower, the hitboxes are more retarded to the point you can get stunned in stupid ways like a light tap and the styles get repetitive after awhile.
where the fuck are those Frogs? Its payback time for all of that "Jesuis monte"ing
I mean, it can get pretty easy once you get a momentum down in previous games, I just think the styles are a fucking pointless gimmick. It would have been better to use that idea and fuse it into weapons instead of outright picking a style. I don't know.
I have played far too much Monster Hunter for my own good.
I haven't played since P3rd with an unofficial, half-done patch. I liked the overall improvements over FU but felt too easy
What's the best game to play right now, or to wait for?
I mostly played striker and guild so thankfully I didn't build any bad habits, except for completely runining my DB play because of adept DBs, but I didn't play DBs that much so no harm done
By god I hope Striker SNS and Oiling up become series staples though. SNS was just fucking perfect in Gen
i dunno, the combat seems alright but the sheer amount of other shit you gotta do to get to the good part makes it really tedious. i wouldnt mind it if it were at least quicker, like infinite stamina on non-combat missions or something
>GL in Frontier
>No heat gauge bullshit
>Loading shells into Wyvern Fire
>Better blocking than mainline and blocking during WF
>The entirety of Extreme Style as well
A paradise for blowing things up.
200 hours in 3U
~1000 hours in 4U
40 hours in Gen
4 hours in XX...demo
With transmogging in, I gotta replay Generations to prepare for when Gen U hits.
And just so you guys all know, I do not appreciate X coming in and then XX being announced a year later. So when Gaijinhunter starts that #MH5ForTheWest BS, best believe I'm gonna start a #MH5UOrBust
Gen felt terrible,monsters killed in less than 7 minutes solo with the same rank equipment plus i didnt really like any of the styles they added so i was just rolling guild style. First MH game to get me bored before reaching end game.
Yeah. I'm here on behalf of the other 5 people who like MH in my country
Is XX worth it? I have the .cia on my desktop but gens was such a letdown that I don't know If I should bother
MH Tri 300
MH Gen 100
MH Frontier I have completely lost track
I feel bad though, now there's really not an excuse not to clownsuit other than being too lazy to grind
Well, maybe that means I can wear /fa/ gear and not be stuck with shit like wide range +1
MH Tri: 1300
Really disappointed in Gen/XX. Gen was the first MH I dropped before 500 hours, and I don't think even with XX I'm going to hit 500 hours.

>Not playing and mastering as many weapons as you can
GS, LS, SnS, DS Hammer, HH, GL, IG, CB, LBG, HBG and Bow masterace here.
I'm worried that if transmog continues it'll give Capcom room to be lazy and just make a single good set now with no worries, since you can just make it look like anything.
But then again they have already just been making a single good set for the past few games so then it's a net gain I guess.
Yes, this was much better
Post more if you have it please
There's a small pastebin I maintain with the input of some other anons. There's a mix of straight and gay shit in here, take it as you will.
>I'm worried that if transmog continues it'll give Capcom room to be lazy and just make a single good set now with no worries, since you can just make it look like anything.
Capcom sort of went down this route already in XX, spoiling for those who don't want to know.
The final boss' armorset is the defacto clown skeleton armorset because it has 15 SLOTS and comes with 2 skills, charm up and skill +2. The latter, self explanatory, gives +2 points to whatever skills are on your set, and charm up DOUBLES the skills on your charm, including decorations. So if you have a +4 Sharpness +5 Spirit OOO charm, that's Razor Sharp and +16 points for Challenger +2 with a Spirit LV2 Jewel
I hope your next piece of steak gets cooked to well done and costs you 30+ buckaroos.
fucking love it
not really loving the direction they're going with X and XX
still enjoy it though just not as much as the old ones
oh yeah, the tutorial is fucking brutal and mind numbing in most of the games, but sadly is a necessity so you can get introduced to gathering/combining. Generally speaking, there's only very few of the mining/gathering questts that you HAVE to do before progressing so, I'd say give it another go with whichever game you like and look up the early key quests. After you get through that initial "gather 10 herbs/ kill 5 small dinosaurs" tutorial stretch it becomes boss fights: the game
I'm playing it right now , Monster Hunter Freedom
The yian kut kut was easy compared to this shit, can't cheese it by getting under it as easily
The mantis set is an excellent template but other clownsuits have already been found that can fill more specific roles
In particular the esurient XR/ceanataur XR mix that gives sharpness+2 and razor sharp by default with +7 expert and 11 slots
I was just playing MH3U with my brothers. We're at the end and it won't be long until we finish. We don't get together too often, mostly weekends. I like water combat but Abyssal Lagi looks like is going to be a bitch.
>The mantis set is an excellent template but other clownsuits have already been found that can fill more specific roles
Okay, this is much more reassuring then. I don't mind this, the Mantis armor for a general accessible clownsuit skeleton but clownsuits for more specific needs.
I have played around the same amount of Generations but as two players. One of these days I'll join a game on /v/ but I'm too nervous. Maybe when XX gets localized. We did try a couple of quests as 3 players and it is substantially easier.
>Not a single frenchaboo in here to explain why they're so bad at the game
There's still a good chunk of raw backing it up despite being stuck on Green (x1.05). Though it's only like +15 true raw on that, Bludgeoner still gives it a reasonable boost. Tigrex, Grimclaw, and Hellblade hammers at the endgame are hard to turn down though by virtue of innate white with good raw, something you can maintain indefinitely with Absolute Readiness.
Don't intend to play it for backlog reasons until it gets localized. Though I'd imagine the meta is still trying to figure itself out, from what I gather on /mhg/ it seems like a lot of the G-Rank equivalents of top tier equipment in X/Gen are still good except that there's a shitload of mantis farming for even just shit like armor spheres and charms. So kinda like 4U's Rajang GQs in a sense but easier, I suppose.
>>Transmog is now a thing
To be fair, the balance is supposedly really, really, really good in MHXX, where there's no best weapon. At first glance, it would be the Mantis weapons, but they get outmatched once you start playing to abuse the monsters' elemental weaknesses or taking advantage of affinity and affinity/critical boosting skills.
Fuck Monster Hunter! I fucking think the game is trash! And I'm glad there are flags here now so I can fucking call out all the autistic fucks in this country that play it! I hate every one of you!
These games were a very important part of my life from F2 until 3U but I just can't like them as well since 4th gen.
At least I'll always have the memories.
I'll never forget my time with MHFU, but I think I just prefer playing MH4U more. Probably because I'm a filthy, lazy casual.
Isn't speaking out against monhun a felony over there mister English teacher-sama?
I loved Monster Hunter playing it on the ps4 with some friends way back.
I got a strange flashback of it earlier while playing horizon:zero dawn and seeing two large monsters clip through each other and spam their attacks with no interruption, reminded me of doing the dual plesioth hunts, heh... Man for a game I could point out so many flaws in I still really loved Monster Hunter.
>Did they fuck SNS down to the shitter or did they bring the other weapons up?
On the topic of weapon class comparisons, a tier list, haven't heard anything yet. Gotta wait on the speed runners to do their thing.
Virtually nonexistent. Nintendo now completely own the handheld market, and their hardware is always underpowered, which means the development team doesn't have to meet the same graphical standards they would have to if developing on the PS4. It saves money, and probably sells a bit more.
Though I would love a really good looking MH game, it probably won't happen.
That's exactly what MH Frontier and the Tencent-developed MH Online are. Though the former is only in Japan and Taiwan, and the latter in China.
There was (maybe still is?) an mmo, but the one person I know who got access to it had trouble trying to navigate through all the Japanese and was eventually banned for being western anyway because it was strictly Japan only or something.
I never even got into xlink kai. I did get to play FU over MHTunnel for half a year though. I miss those folks at /mhg/.
That thread was gut-wrenching, it was raided by barafags and that dildo homo.
Hell yea motherfucker
Where my ps2 boiz at?
Je suis monté!
In 4U, ever hunting in the everwoods
Best Monster Hunter is MHFU
Also, do you have a french stepfather ? :^)
A fixed version has been floating around for a bit.
Early generations is fucking ass, it gets better as you go but I feel its probably the weakest early game mh has had in a while, and then its not exactly amazing late either, I haven't hit G rank in XX yet so can't say how that is but heres hopin
I'm actually a MHF2/FU fag though and went back to play Freedom afterwards, my brother let me borrow his PSP on a trip to Hong Kong and I got hooked on Bow before they buffed it and shit. Also tell me what your favorite weapon is, need to know if my fellow countrymen have shit taste or not.
actually, since most normies have quit the game you can reliably pub most things. I got my dreadking set from 0 to 8 in a few hours thanks to a really good room, and you don't see absolute shitters as bad as when the game released, thankfully
>I mean what's the point of it
...that it's a weapon with a moveset some people might prefer? This pretty much goes for nearly any weapon, not everything has an obligatory niche.
It's a joke translation of something SFW that hasn't been properly translated. Find it in the pastebin linked here earlier.
>tfw can't hunt with /mhg/ because literally everyone is jerking off their XX rooms and I haven't hacked my 3DS because I'm not confident in my ability to not brick
Anyone want to get a Gens room going?
MHF2 / U: ~1998+
Wala pa akong XX, did Brave Bow supersede Adept as the go-to Bow style
You're lucky Croissants are so fucking delicious, Wakfu is tight, and that the cartoons/comics you make are top tier.
Don't get too caught up in TA stats, the environment for those is different to usual play. But even then it's probably something of still a mid-tier weapon at worst.
Hammer though is excellent in Freedom Unite.
so I'm rocking the bow in MHXX. what are the best styles to go with it? I was using guild in Gens since adept was far too braindead for my liking. And no, I refuse to use actual bowguns, no matter how better they might be
>Instal Free shop
>Serch MONSTER HUNTER XX
Now if you whant to do crazyer but easy shit like patching the game for the translation or converting you Gen file in to an X file and then passing it to XX you need to go to /mhg/ and look at the OP
I'm emulating Tri (even though I own it and a Wii)
I feel cheated by the lack of Hunting Horn and other cool weapons
Guess I'll emulate the one that runs on PSPPS or whatever next since cemu can't run MH games yet
Yeah, favorite is 3U only because it was ported on proper console and not on a shitty 4 inch 3ds screen. Still played the shit out of 4U, but quickly dropped X after beating main story.
I hope nu MonHun is on Switch.
These quests are very good to harvest resources without any giant bitch ass nigga dropping on you from left right and center! And you need resources to kick giant bitch ass niggas' asses. The game's just doing its job of introducing you to necessities without dropping you in a pile serious shit from get go. If it did you'd be bitching how the game treats you unfairly having you fight a boss when you don't even know the basics.
I like how this guy draws other monsters but for some reason I can't stand his mizutsune.
I was considering brave, but the "revving up" phase shooting brave arrows at monsters just kills my boner. Feels like the time I waste setting up my brave state could have been used to poison, para and KO the damn thing with guild. Also I have no way to know what I can and can't dodge with brave. This candle sniffing fuckfence right here can land 90% of its attacks right through my parries no problem, but massively hard-hitting attacks like its burrowing strike can be parried a-o-kay
>candle sniffing fuckfence
Are you hype for Armor Breaker Shogun?
no this god damn crab fucked me up enough with its all-around attacks already
Oh I love Shogun so much, so glad they not only brought him back but even gave him a deviant. Regarding bows, guild style still feels like the best for them, which kind of sucks. Feels like Capcom just doesn't give a fuck about bows anymore.
Poison, para and exhaust phials are a thing. Most bows are usually only good at one or two though, not all types.
I'm glad that there's no G-Rank equivalent.
This post explains exactly why you'll never get MH. You don't get it on a conceptual level. It's "not press x to win" and you can't just shit up a server until people give up and leave it. You actually have to play MH.
coatings, son. bows with high level spread shots can apply coats way better, specially with guild's always-available extra shot also applying coats at crit distance. You can easily poison a monster, paralyze it and KO while it's down. The KO might be a tad hard to pull off during the paralysis alone, but if you're with teammates who know what the fuck they're doing you can really help a hammer user improve their KO buildup during hard-to-hit attacks
Poison is very useful against most monsters, but paralysis and exhaust are really only useful in groups. Sleep arrows are good for sleep bombing as well. I can assure you the damage dealt with 2 barrel bomb+'s exploding on a sleeping monster makes up for the time spent not using power coating.
Does it make me a pleb for saying that Shaggy is my favorite monster?
man, sorry for the poor performance there, dreadking farming completely spoiled me on fighting the metal raths. Really out of practice against those two.
Still, it was pretty fun. Sorry I couldn't stay for another
It's cool man, usually I'm the guy who carts against these, for some reason I do a lot worse against them than I did in 3U where I could solo Moonlit Tryst and stuff. Forgot to pack lifepowders from my last hunt too so I could have saved some of those carts.
>tfw carving two Phosgems and getting a third in rewards
I still find it strange that Lavasioth gets a CB but not SA since the weapon type itself is in Frontier.
Basically 1st and 2nd gen on a single UMD, there's much less QoL stuff but it's also more challenging.
And more chip damage, too.
You can emulate it fine on PPSSPP and even switch saves between them, if you want to.
>what, you think "mine 10 iron nodes" fetch quests are challenging?
anon, you somehow did it wrong
You only touch those quests if you actually need resources, otherwise you just tackle the boss monster quests which are a lot more interesting
I still find it strange they bother to bring back only Lavasioth. But then X and XX don't make sense anyway.
>Carved 2 Akantor Gems and get another in the reward
>install MHXX + patch
I did not think this through. what do?
It feels like the players have been given too many new options without the monsters being updated to account for it.
Khezu was enough of a pushover the PSP games, and with the addition of styles + mounting he's even more trivial than ever. There's less and less of the back-and-forth I used to enjoy in the earlier games, which worries me.
That explains why getting bumper repairs is so damn hard here.
MH (the original) ~50h, dropped it after the 2 egg delivery village quest kicked my shit in repeatedly
MH Tri ~300 hours, played all the way until Alatreon
MH3U ~330 hours, soloed both village and town, skipped some of the lategame quests though
MH4U ~370 hours, got 80% of the achievements, never bothered with the relic hunt shit
>no japanice me gaijin
>"An error has occurred"
>It feels like the players have been given too many new options without the monsters being updated to account for it.
I've seen people complain about the exact opposite though.
How giving player easy outs like adept and the evade HAs let them make monsters faster and more unforgiving in general, like the last tier deviants in XX.
That fucking diablos hammer in MHFU spoiled me
I was referring to the Frontier monsters. They had only ever ported two and all of a sudden only one was back.
>arc shot someone
>blow up someone's barrel bomb
>use potion without being given permission
>attempt to press a button
being as canadian as possible might be a problem.
specially because I'm actually a BR
Being able to press R to continue into another combo was the only thing Hammer needed, and the only thing stopping me from playing FU again. I'm so used to it now that it just doesn't feel right.
>We never got any scorpions in a mainline game
Granted he's using the carapaceon moveset, but I like his design. Nerscylla was
