So...

I decided to catch up on this game last night, and I forgot how much fun it was. Especially on the big screen. Does anyone here still play it at all? I have MH4, but it's just not the same for me.

The online community was very minimum though. It had two worlds, and two lobbies that were in the 60-80 range of players. I created a room for leveling up, and it went very well. At least two or three high rank players were very helpful, and another low rank joined in. Overall, the online part went better than I expected.

I'm going to try and catch up as much as possible, at least until I decide to get Generations.

I've never played a Monster Hunter game in my life, but I tried out the demo for this game, and I simply couldn't get my head around it. There seemed to be too much to learn about in such a short space of time and I felt thrown into the deep end. Could anyone explain the appeal of the game and why I should give it another shot?

@Meowpheel I got that bit, but it seemed as though there was a deeper kind of understanding to the game. Are there combos and how do they work? How do I know if my weapon is effective against the monster I'm fighting. I expected the demo to give some kind of tutorial to answer these questions, but instead it was more of a 'here's a weapon, there's a monster, go fight it'.

That's basically what Monster Hunter is about, "figure it out yourself".

@Portal_King The demos for the 3DS games Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Monster Hunter Generations explain things a little better than the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo, so you may want to try those out. I was actually put off by the 3U demo, and I only got into this game after buying it when it was on sale.

This game is essentially full of long boss battles against a wide variety of monsters. If that sounds fun, then give a demo another try. The game can be overwhelming at first to new players, so don't be afraid to search online for something you're not sure about.

@crimsontadpoles Thanks! I'll download those two demos right away and give them a whirl. It certainly sounds like fun and I'd like to give the franchise another shot.

@Portal_King
I think the online play is also part of the fun. It's still alive, even with the new games out. The community is small, but I've encountered new and High Rank players that are willing to help out.

The demos won't do justice in my opinion. There's much more than fighting creatures.

@Portal_King The Wii U Monster Hunter Demo did nothing to make the game appealing, and like you I picked up the game because it was dirt cheap. If you will give it a fair go, the hardest part if figuring out which weapon you prefer (I ended up with Sword and Shield because it fit my style of preferring agility and quick items). There are a lot of good guides out there that help ease you into the many systems at play, and even gives you some guidance on how to properly prepare.

The game however has now sucked me in for over 120 hours of play (in single player mode).

I just got this. It's really tough but kind of fun.

Decided to get it because Xenoblade was too large of a file to download.

The game was fun but not sure if it's for me. It feels like an endless grind.

Anyone know how the online mode works? I see rooms and people but when I enter their lobby we are in the Tavern but how do you actually go on a mission with them? What always happens is there will be people in the lobby and then they just leave and I get booted out.

@Rexcalibr You go to the quest counter to take on a mission. If one is already selected you go to the big board and join their quest. It's trial and error till you find a good room sometimes. If you make a room yourself for a specific fight or mission you might get some to join you.

@Rexcalibr I don't own it anymore as I've moved unto 4U and Generations. Multiplayer is always more fun if you can find a good group of people to hunt with. I've played mostly single player however with the latest 2 games and still have fun though. I don't have the time I use to to hunt with others.

I'm almost at G-Rank in this game...(well, I'm like...in the middle of online high rank quests)
Would like to record some event quests online at some point.

I'm just interested in the quests where you fight a beefed up Lucent/Abyssal/Miralis. I think event Jhen is also suited for multiplayer. (and maybe Stygian)

Well, I WAS going to upload video of me fighting Goldbeard, but software crapped out on me. Might try it again tomorrow, but anyways...I'm in G-Rank finally, lol. Once I get some of my favorite armor (R. Duramboros/S. Zinogre or whatever they're called) and upgrade some weapons I wouldn't mind trying some event quests online.
