The insect glaive is a pretty complex weapon, I would start on the long sword. It's pretty simple; your A & X attacks charge the energy bar. You can use R to slice and consume that energy. You should charge the bar fully, the press R until the combo finishes, sheathing your blade. If the last stroke of the combo hit a monster you will graduate to a glowing white blade, increasing your attack.

The levels are normal, white, yellow, then red, each more powerful than the last. Each level makes it easier to charge up the R attack bar as well as having a shorter buff duration. When the attack buff elapses your sword will stop glowing; then you'll have to charge up again. If you can stay yellow or red for most of the time you will be dealing a lot of damage.

Also, try to combine A & X in such a way that you maintain a continuous combo, to charge up faster.

Oh, I'm sorry, I might've confused people, but I was talking about the other weapon with the word 'insect' in the name =P

i would suggest considering the morph axe as well , Epac98! I heared it got nifty new moves in MH4.
I always loved the morph axe in MH3, it all depends what playstyle your looking for. The morph axe is maybe not the stronged in a certain area, but its really flexible and can adapt well ( obviously it cant do ranged attacks ^^ )

ps: happy hunting

Usually beginners either start off with the Sword and Shield, or sometimes the Great Sword. I'm pretty good with the Gunlance, though.

I would disagree with sanya. Sure sword and shield are considered "noob" weapons, but as long as MH4 is not the first time EVER videogame you touch i suggest you choose a weapon you like. It doesnt help if you really hate blocking and then start with the "noob" weapon sword and shield, which got blocking incorporated. I believe people learn faster with things they like. So just think which playstyle you like and go with that weapon from day 1. Believe me the weapons are complex enough that even when you play longer a weapon lets say 30 hours, you can always learn new moves , combos and encounters.

The longer you use a weapon the better you get with it and after time combos and such get second nature. So starting with a considered "noob" weapon even though you will never touch em again after beeing in the game for 5 hours is a waste of time. Thats ofc only my personal opinion, but why start with something which is awkward when you can use something which you like? And i dont say shield and sword is a bad weapon i just suggest that people should start with weapons they like than rather take "easy" weapons. Cause if other weapon types are really hard to use you cant start learning them early enough ! And keep in mind the first monster you hunt are easy anyway, they are balanced towards new players who need to get the hang out of the game.

For example take great jaggi from MH3 im pretty sure any player can kill them with any weapon type with no problem. But the training and getting used to is required for later harder fights!

Ok sorry for such long wall of text xD

No and the eshop doesn't say it either. Just Majora's Mask shows for midnight.

Probably won't be till the usually time the eshop updates. Some times it does hit a bit earlier though.

I think the long sword is easier to master. It's got mobility and reach. The move set is pretty easy, also. The insect glaive has a bit more complexity to it, but you will find that you may use certain weapons for certain hunts. My first main was the Lance. A big reason for that was because of the underwater fights. Once I got comfortable with water, I went to Long Sword. Unless I want Uragaan's tail, I use a hammer on him. If you've played other iterations of the series, sorry for the info you already know. If this is your first hunt, then have fun.

Danksparce

@Stereoman Dude thank you for explaining that better than I ever could.

In MH3U I don't think I even tried the sword and Shield, I just jumped into the Heavy Bowgun and stuck with it until I got the WiiU, then I used the Great/longsword

Former Mod.

Dank.

The "start with the shield and sword" thing is a recommendation, not a rule.

Also recommendations can differ from person to person :3

I stumble across this image in the Internet showing MH4U looks better on the new 3ds compared to the old 3ds.

http://m.imgur.com/a/rzLJb

Can anyone confirm this? Or is this photoshopped?
The difference is quite significant.

If you go back quite a few pages there is more pics showing the new 3ds has better textures so I believe this to be true but without someone that has both systems and 2 games it will be hard to verify.

I heard on the Wikia that this actually just demo (which is based off of MH4's demo, and not 4G/U) and the full game of Ultimate/4G.

That's a lot of texture differences to photoshop.

Yeah but the pictures further back are definitely not of the demo. Check those out.

Has anybody received an email from Gamestop on a Dispatch for either the MH4U system or Majora's Mask? This is getting upsetting.

Not more then 10 mins later I GOT MY DISPATCH!!!!!!!!! HYPE!!!!
