If that artbook was a lore/ background story book and had stuff like monster cross-sections and whatnot.... well, then they'd have my attention. (although I'd probably try to buy it separately if the bundle was still $150 US with nothing else I want).

Think Hyrule Historia, Monster Hunter Edition.

I think we have to reserve judgement on Nerg until at least TGS where Capcom have promised further details about it. I mean Gore Magala is just a generic fantasy black dragon until you see its enrage, or the end of the game where it randomly turns golden like a Chain Chomp on Isle Delfino.

We still haven't seen its honest combat animations or where it fits into the environments besides a very tiny screenshot of it in the Wildspire Waste. Nerg could still end up as my favorite monster in the series if we fight it at the same time we do that giant volcanic Gogmazios like Seltas + Seltas Queen. And there is still that tapestry with Nerg emerging from the giant's maw, it might still be a hatchling like fresh-poured lava. That being said, the statue is going to do none of those things, so I don't think I need it.

Speaking of Gore, if it returns I don't want it to be two fights separated by quests. I would want every 10th Gore or something semi-rare like that to dynamically molt into Shagaru and refill its health, the fight would be so much more valuable if it was multiple phases of one creature like Nakarkos and not essentially a subspecies as an end boss.

A Reddit user was speculating about the virus as a dynamic mechanic for other monsters as opposed to just going on quests with already-frenzied monsters. It would be cool if you're fighting an Anjanath, Gore flies over, and its saliva turns ashen and it starts snorting little black-purple motes of virus as it goes into an enrage / frenzy phase. That would serve to sell the contagion aspect of Gore as opposed to just a preset quest.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

With GCU it'll only be $119.99 and then another 10% back for BBCC and double reward points, so effectively $107.99.

I have the Monster Hunter Illustrations art books, volumes 1 and 2 (volume 3 hasn't been localized yet). They're absolutely amazing.

So here is Capcom's TGS site for World. They have main stage hunts scheduled on the 23rd and 24th that I read elsewhere were still the two brute wyverns, but that seems unlikely unless they mean to reiterate the information for the first big Japanese event.

I don't know when Capcom mean to break news for the first day of TGS, but I imagine it'll be about the flagship or new zone. It's 6:20 am on the 19th in Japan right now and TGS' opening ceremony runs from 9:30 to 10:30.

I thought Gore was ugly too, tbh. But he actually looks much cooler in game because he has a lot of purple color that shimmers. And then when he goes in the rage mode he just looks wickedly awesome.

But this new flagship is just butt freaking ugly lol. I'm not saying he won't be fun to fight, but he's ugly as heck

Whereas in Canada, it'll still be $170+, thanks to the “What's a rewards program?“ offer that Best Buy.ca has going on.

@DarthNocturnal
Have you thought about getting someone in the US with a GCU account to plug you with orders when you need, and maybe offer to snag stuff from CN and ship to US for them in return?

I am willing to bet even accounting for $20 shipping, you'd still come out ahead if you piled up orders over the span of a few months and then have them ship all at once. I do that for @Sinalefa in Costa Rica. He tells me what to pre-order and order, and I buy it all for him and then when the box is full, I give him a total plus shipping and he paypals me.

I'd maybe start putting the feelers out there for people you could work out a deal with.

Eh, I don't think that's for me. Nevermind the fact that there's nothing in Canada that you couldn't just grab in the US, but I don't preorder anything and everything all at once. Plus I sometimes have consider which games I want sooner and which I want later. Pre-ordering is mostly for special offers (E3 sales, freak discounts, and the occasional special edition.... oh, and stuff like NES/ SNES Classic, if I think it might be hard to find).

tl;dr gaming priorities keep shifting. Well, that, and I'm not the “howdy person I've never met, let's act as proxies so we can buy video games“ kind of person.

I'm okay with his design, it looks brooding and tough, but for me it just doesn't look unique enough for what I would want from a flagship monster.

Really hope it at least brings in a new mechanic or something, since most of the flagships do that in some way.

Well considering that it's perching on or coming out of an elder dragon, I think there'll be something lol. Let's just hope it's not another status ailment. It's purple and orange and spikey, let's move on.

It seems as if we're getting a more elaborate sea battle with the lava elder dragon unless that whole Titanic-y scene was only a cutscene (And if so why? Scenes like that are always boss fight intros in MH.). Swinging from a ship's rafters onto an elder dragon Black Flag-style would be pretty awesome. It's cool to see how far we've come since the Lao-Shan Lung and then Jhen Mohran setpieces.

Nergigante has a unique mechanic to itself. It regenerates skin and armor as it fights (regardless if you are currently attacking it), fortifying itelf. Resulting in it forming white spikes, which if not broken, will allow it to hit harder. Credit to GaijinHunter for translating this.

Basically, it's a monster that forces you to go aggro with it, or it will maul you.

@Tsurii I'm not a MH expert, but I'm assuming what makes his unique is that he will break himself in order to regenerate stronger. Regardless of whether you hit him or not.

That trailer has got me super excited for this game now. It's a far cry from that first initial trailer they showed.

I'm slating 800 hrs for this on Xbox One X. Another 400hrs on PC whenever it drops. I'm predicting this game will end up being my most played game of all time. Provided there is enough content of course. Being a new game the monster list could be pretty small and given there's no G rank... well... I may need to slash those numbers in half.

I just want to play some Monster Hunter World now... Gosh dang it. [goes back to MHXX... @Joeynator3000 come on, we've got monsters to hunt- I still haven't fought Valphalk and or any of the deviants]

@Joeynator3000
I was wondering what was taking you so long. Stories is fantastic though, so I can't fault you there. A fantastic MH spinoff. Rivals Pokémon and Dragon Quest Monsters for sure.

Think I'm gonna dive into G rank with TeeJay tomorrow. Hope you and zionich put the pedal to the metal. Would be nice to do some 4 player end game hunts.
