Insert Tagline Here (the official Monster Hunter World thread)

For Oblivion. And some other stuff, I suppose.

My US trip might get cancelled today. If that happens I'm IN LIKE FLYNN.

Edit: Sorry, you probably wanted to keep this for really useful information, and now I'm spanning it with my usual blog post nonsense.

Nah I'll copy anything useful into the first post.

I'm hyped! I actually pre-ordered it just now.

There's no way it's going to live up to the hype I'm giving it in my head. Because in my mind it's going to be like the very best souls bosses except there are hundreds of them. (There aren't hundreds of them.)

But surely, somewhere in this game, is going to be something challenging that we can do as a team. I'll be happy with that.

So is it worth watching all that stuff you were watching last night, do you reckon? Can you go in blind and learn as you go along, or is it just too massive and complex and impossible? Sorry, I appreciate you've only just started investigating yourself, but you already know way more than me.

The list of weapons above, are hyperlinks to youtube videos for the combos for those weapons. (At least for the ones that the dude has done so far.)

I don't think we need to go and learn all the combos for all the weapons. And it's quite possible that in the training room, we might be able to learn the combos ourselves.

But for noobs like us, I think it was quite an eye opener for me to know about all the combo potential on a more general level.

I certainly wasn't doing it right, in the beta, that's for sure.

I watched this vid yesterday and I finally get a grasp on what Monster Hunter is. And now I am much more enthusiastic!
Time to pre-order a copy and make sure I can play in the weekend.

Nice video. If I wasn't already sold, then I now would be.

Bah, I'm definitely off on my travels again this weekend. Enjoy the launch, guys, I'll pick it up when I get back if I'm not too far behind.

Bummer. It's probably not quite Diablo in regards of being able to catch someone up but it's probably still helpful. But maybe you don't want to be caught up..


A basic piece of info that also seems kinda important to know;

I was trying to find out if monsters scale with party size and they don't. But what they do do, is get ~2.6 x HP when you are online.

So being online on your own, waiting to see if your friends turn up, is probably not a great idea.

This also affects point 1 above - if we are doing a monster and Rev comes online after being away for a week, then he can join and the monster doesn't get harder because of that. But of course, if one of us is alone, and goes online and joins Rev, that's a different matter.

Oh and another thing I saw somewhere, the timer is artificial for the beta.

I think there is still a timer but it should be about 50 minutes which is more than generous.

Also the timer is only there for the quest to kill monster X. You can free roam any time you like and kill monster X at your leisure with no timer.

(Or possibly, once you killed monster X while on the quest, inside the time limit, then monster X is added to the world when in free roam. That probably makes more sense.)
