Thanks guys. I don't know anything about Monster Hunter. I'm used to just being able to pick up a game and immediately understand most of the time.

Just to add to what everyone just said. When your sword or weapon bounces off the monster that means its a part of the monster your weapon can't penetrate! Thus your weapon will dull a lot faster the more you hit those areas!

Sorta, your sharpness will decrease regardless...the bouncing off means your weapon isn't sharp enough and will decrease faster when it bounces. (however having a sharpness level of white or purple will make bouncing rare, until you get to the endgame monsters anyways)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Areas become your best friend trust me, and I never understood the repetitive thing, I mean I understand saying the controls are a bit clunky or something even if I disagree but I never thought ever that the combat was repetitive. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

So I'm going to sum up my opinions, since I thought the changes were funny:
Wii U Monster Hunter:

  • Ohhhh, pretty.
  • Man these controls are clunky!
  • Do I seriously just mash A over and over to attack?
  • This is repetitive.
  • Kind of.... A little boring.
    Hard Quest:
  • Whoa, really pretty!
  • Man each weapon controls pretty different.
  • Hm, underwater isn't nearly as bad as others make it out to be.
  • This is kind of cool.
  • Huh, I guess there really is more to the combat than just smashing A...
  • Gah this is so hard! Awesome!
    3DS MH:
    It's almost exactly the same :O :O :O
    Conclusion:
    I'm really digging Monster Hunter! :D

Yeah, I noticed with the long sword. Chaining attacks and the swings keep getting faster and faster was awesome!

That weapon has like 5 different charges and with each charge it glows a different color. Gets stronger with each charge as well and can unleash a brutal blow. One of the best weapons for sure if your skilled enough with it!

Only downside to the Longsword is that in multiplayer games they tend to interrupt other players a lot due to their large sweeping strikes, so if you intend to specialize in Long Swords be mindful of that when playing online, knocking your allies over is the difference between a quick and easy win and a waste of half an hour lol. Easily averted by just focusing on a different part of the monster than your friends.

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but does anyone know if the final game with support Wiimote and nunchuck like the Wii version did? I played a loooot on the Wii using that method, and I've grown to love it. I'll use the more traditional controllers if I have no choice, but I would reeeeally prefer the old 'mote.

So, anyone know?

I have another question... In the full game, do you have to pick a weapon type at the start and stick with it for that character, or can you switch anytime?

If it's like the Wii, your first weapon is a super basic sword and shield. From then on, you can buy whatever weapon you want, or craft whatever weapon you want. You're never tied down to anything.

Yes your free to switch at any time. However not in the middle of a mission.

Well the demo you can only use the Wii U Game Pad, or Pro Controller or the Wii Classic Controller. But that doesnt mean anything cause the 3DS version uses the CPP but with the demo you cant use it. So for now its anyone guess. I dont see why they would let you use the classic controller but not the Nunchuck.

After googling a bunch of different things, I finally found a Capcom employee on the Unity site saying no wiimote and 'chuck because the WiiU version has new features that wouldn't work on the 'mote.

I'm not buying the reasoning, but oh well! I have 29 uses of the demo to get accustomed to using my pro controller!

It is a fantastic series. I'm glad it finally made it to Nintendo on the Wii, or I never would've discovered it :p

That harder mission fighting the fish is frustrating. I've tried it 3 times, and always run out of time. I understand the controls, but how the hell do you off the bombs? Do I need to throw a harpoon at them or something? I set up 3 all around it, and it just ran right through them. I would have won, but I just can't get the bombs to go off. Has anyone beaten this thing with nothing besides their main weapon? Maybe I just am terrible at this game, but I barely ever got hit, and hit it at least every 45 seconds with 5 swipes of the big blade weapon. It swimming around every 5 seconds in the water is when I can't get it that much though. It just swims back and forth, but never hits me.

Like I already answered, you can detonate it multiple. The demo also supplies you with a little yellow bomb that detonates the bombs. And whether the monster ran through it or not, it still inflicted damage. Just not as much as it could have if you say, tranquilised it then bombed it's vulnerable areas.

Yes, and I found it a little too easy. lol
