No thread for this? I know it has mostly been a handheld and Nintendo game but the series doesn't seem to be too popular on boards.ie. Even still I thought there'd be a lot more interest in it seeing as it's being released on PS4, XBOX One and PC in January.






It looks great and I can see it being a contender for game of the year next year, plus the beta goes live today on the PS4 if anyone wants to give it a try, you'll need PS Plus to play the beta.

Never played a Monster Hunter game and always wanted to, but they had been on the wrong console everytime. No doubt gonna get this on PC for sure

Downloading the beta now. Been curious about this since it was shown at e3 as I never got the chance to play the Nintendo titles

Just played my first hunt there. It's a great concept, I just need to figure out what to do with all the items

I'd missed all the other games as well but always liked the looks of them. Projared on youtubes enthusiasm for them is infectious.

So I played the beginner level earlier. Was very easy so looking forward to seeing the challenge in the two more difficult modes. Didn't have time to try earlier unfortunately.

I tried joining the online multiplayer and couldn't get into matchmaking, kept getting an error. It's the sort of game they'd need to get that right with come launch.

Not too familiar with the monster hunter games, are they multiplayer only?

From my brief play of it and research before you can play solo and there is also matchmaking functionality. To me it seems like a game perfectly suited to multiplayer. Take down a big **** off enemy with mates.

I'm currently getting into an online game here. Seems to have found a few players but taking a while to start. Fingers crossed it works.

Edit... So yeah in with a few randomers there and it all worked grand. Honestly not sure what in doing other than hack and slash and we defeated the intermediate boss but I can see it being deep overall. No idea what all the stuff does yet. Good fun though

Is it just Evolve but with an AI monster? (and actually good)

No, there's a good bit more depth to this I think.

I didn't play evolve but from watching reviews etc of previous instalments of MH I'd say it's pretty deep. Has a huge (maybe slightly cult) following.

Played the first hunt earlier. Not familiar with the games either but on paper they tick a few boxes for me. The combat in this didn't feel good at all even the lock on was a bit crazy as to what it chose to target.

And I hate radial menus for item select.

Combat is one of my favourite parts of the monster hunter series, similar to dark souls in that you can't just hack n' slash, you need to wait for the opportune moment to strike. Try some of the other weapons, all 14 types are very different so maybe the one you were using wasn't suited to you. Sword and shield is probably the best for newcomers. You don't have to use the radial menu, use sqaure to use your chosen item and cycle through them by holding L1 and pressing square or O.

The monster hunter games are quite deep, nothing like evolve really. It's only the beta so you'll only really see the combat aspects and not the story or item/material collection from the map and monsters that are needed to upgrade your equipment (big part of the game).
