A next-gen Monster Hunter Online?
The graphics. Didn’t hear (much of) recycled monster cries (a step forward?). The premise with monsters from throughout the series, Frontier included. Oh my god.
OH MAN. OH MAN OH MAN.
THE TRAILER WAS SO MUCH COOL AND PROMISES.
I MUST MAKE IT MY LIFE GOAL TO BUY A COMPUTER CAPABLE OF RUNNING IT SMOOTHLY.
AND WHY IS THE BETA TEST ONLY FOR CHINA?
I THOUGHT JAPAN WAS THE GO-TO FOR MONHUN MARKETING.
I CAN’T READ CHINESE AT FREAKING ALL, BUT JAPANESE IS ALMOST READABLE.
WHATEVER I’LL GET THIS ANYWAY WHEN I HAVE SOMETHING TO RUN THIS ON.
CAPCOM AND TENCENT. YOU AWESOME BASTARDS. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KNOW MY LIFE POST-MILITARY CONSCRIPTION STARTING THIS MID-JUNE WILL BE FULL OF PROMISES, GOOD ONES.
mmkay, finished Monster Hunter Orage recently. So what’s the judgement?
The setting was nice, the character’s were cheesy though. But I liked the way the monsters were illustrated.
Not only it had relatively obvious personalities and plot twists, it went through that at 1.8 speed. It was like it had a bunch of stuff and it didn’t want to explain it all in greater detail. Seriously, four manga books and a fast-forward button.
And the entire Shadow character? Oh god that was a waste, and his end was anti-climatic too. Could’ve been something more. Oh well. What a cheap plot twist bait.
Oh, and the conclusion? I don’t even know, Myo Galuna seemed to fall down rather easily considering Shiki and the entire group’s equipment. Just how can you defeat an elder dragon that has ravaged continents with a fucking jaguar armor and a Gunlance?
And tell me this. If Shiki’s dual swords were created from Myo Galuna’s materials, how is it possible the entire plot revolves around that very elder dragon that has never been slayed -let alone found- before? Don’t bullshit me with horn breaks and tail carves because I just won’t accept it for a monster that has been undiscovered for thousands of years.
Oh, and the upgrades of the wind type dual sword? Apparently it took anything but more of the source material for them to have increased strenght and wind element. Let’s just dump the use of common sense completely for the sake of the plot so it can progress at a steady pace. Yeah, go explain that, because at it’s core, Monster Hunter’s equipment upgrading does not work like it! You need high rank Lagiacrus’ scale. shell shocker and plate to upgrade your thunder-type Lagiacrus Great Sword, not a pile of ore and material completely different from the source material!
Just like Final Fantasy, the more I start think about it the less it makes sense. The story telling in itself was poor but I did enjoy monsters’ appearences and the use of franchise’s elements.
The Orage monsters should find themselves alive and breathing from the future Monster Hunter games. They are some beasts that would benefit from having better knowledge of their backgrounds, ecologies and general behavior.
… I should get back playing MH3G.
Okay, so I upgraded this Brachydios Lance with G-rank materials. It’s got 575 attack, 320 slime, a sliver amount of white sharpness, a chunk of blue sharpness and even more green sharpness. With my Powercharms and talons my attack level was 609.
And I killed the G-rank Golden Ceadeus within 13 minutes.
I even broke it’s horn (!) and the Dragonator hit it two times - The second time killed it.
I fucking came. And I even scored two deep dragongems or whatever the rare material is.
HOLY SHIT THIS LANCE IS GOOD.
((Currently using this as a reference to what I am currently drawing, all the while listening to his theme song.
I have to give the composers credit. They really got the feel of this monster in the music.
The creatrs of this beast get props too. If Metal Gear REX was ever a creature, this would be it.
Well done CAPCOM
From the game Metal Gear Peace Walker))
This thing gives me the creeps, really wish I could hunt it with better weapons… like a Slime-type Lance.
I wouldn’t mind a Nintendo cameo after this. Not at all.
I get that Brachydios can live in extremely hot locales, but… Tundra?
This Double Brachydios G2-quest in Tundra. Reminds me of the Double Zinogres in Portable 3rd. Still cleared it in one go although after fainting my extra 50 HP away I felt insecure with my G-rank Baggi / Froggi armor. Oh well, an updated High Rank Brachy Lance took care of it. Even though Brachy is lots more work to deal with than Zinogre, the quest didn’t feel too much of a hassle. Is this what they call experience?
Really want to fight the Guran-Miraosu elder dragon though… It’s the next urgent, and I will be waiting. It will be waiting too. For another hunter to be slaughtered.
You know, I’d really love to have (and hear) the Monster Hunter Frontier soundtrack that comes in three discs in the whole Frontier Online Anniversary Premium Ultra Mega Hype Cheese Burger edition, but dayum the price tag hurts me every time I see it. Haven’t had any luck in finding it online either which isn’t cool either.
If only man, if only. A group donation wouldn’t hurt.
Once again Capcom trolls the Vita with this latest announcement of a new Monster Hunter coming to handhelds, just not a Sony one. Details and screens after the break.
Can’t call this trolling by any means, but… this sounds laughable. But they’re keeping their promise about more Monster Hunter in the West, right? RIGHT?!
one monster you dont want to fight solo
But I fought it solo anyway. And yeah, Crimson Fatalis was totally screwed (over).
Monster Hunter Frontier Online’s getting another Premium Package -this time sans 2012 vintage- and… hold on a minute. HEY.
WHAT IS THAT. THE FUCK IS THAT.
IS THAT A THREE-DISC FRONTIER ONLINE SOUNDTRACK?
LIKE, THE FRONTIER SOUNDTRACK IN HIGH, OST QUALITY?
IS THAT A FUCKING GOD’S BLESSING?
Oooh shnap, been looking for this game to run on PS Vita. YASSSS. My heart is at ease now.
Rocking dat JINNOOOOUGAAA.
It’s 4:55 AM and I regret nothing.
