How would they be impossible to use? We have no clue how much those weapons weigh. Besides, this obviously a different environment. Who's to say that holding your breath is impossible in the Monster Hunter world?

I'll give you a hint - make a weapon out of metal that is about the size of your body, as porportional to a weapon in Monster Hunter.

Try and swing it.

Metal is heavy, see. That's how I know it would be impossible to swing.

Let's take this one as an example:

Untitled

Now. A lance is utterly useless in combat unless you happen to be mounted on a horse. Why? Because it was way too heavy to swing - a lance did its damage by having the momentum of a running horse behind it.

And yet in Monster Hunter there are people swinging these things like paper swords. lol. No, you can't do that in the real world.

Who's to say that holding your breath is impossible in the Monster Hunter world?

We're talking about being able to hold your breath in the real world while doing what they do in Monster Hunter, though.

And it's impossible to hold your breath underwater while fighting in the real world.

So... What is your favorite weapon?

I personally like the Heavy Bowgun the best, with the Switch Axe coming 2nd, then Sword and Shield coming afterwards.

I rather like the bow and arrow now that I'm getting the hang of it.

For melee weapons, the dual blades.

How do we know that weapon in the picture is entirely metal? It could have a wooden core, and have metal on the ouside. Having a wooden core, and a metal ouside would make it weigh less.
Anyways, it's better if we just leave it at, it's a game. It does kinda help engage the player if it's relatable though.
I beat both quests, so I'm waiting for the full game now.

I've only ever been good with SnS and LS. I need speed and maneuverability. I'm okayish with the GS, started using the bow on the demo and, while I don't get hit a lot, I can't do enough damage to kill

Lots of censorship here...

Yep I found that problem too. I need something quick which is why I like the dual blades. I tried the bow but like you I couldnt do enough damage. I might try the bow again in multiplayer mode when I get the full version. As for the slower weapons yeah they are too slow for me as well.

I think I like the long sword best. I beat the Plesioth with the Great Sword though so I'm liking that too. Plus it looks cool.

I saw in a trailer you have a normal looking person before you get armor for him. Do you get to customize that avatar's features like hair color, ect.?

Probably gonna play with those in the full game. They were fun when I did use them that one time, but I think my main will be the Gunlance. :p (Hunting Horn for multiplayer)

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...

They're slow but powerful. They're only good for a couple of hits at a time though specially on single player. As for the light bowgun I can totally wipe out the rabbit one in like 10 mins with it. It help to pick up the fire ammo from the chest in the camp. It's more vulnerable to it. What I do first is put it to sleep then set bombs around it then step back and set them off. Then I poison it a couple of times and fire away with the fire ammo. After rthats out I just use the next strongest ammo I have till its dead.

My main gripe is that a monster can quite easily be somewhere off-screen and you end up fumbling around like a blind person which feels a bit odd given you're supposed to be some kind of professional monster hunter

Not really. technically when you first show up you're a rookie greenhorn who doesn't know how to forage for food.
The village teaches you how to forage and hunt, and then from there you move forward at your own pace (you can repeat quests as many times as you want, gaining rewards every time you do)

My only gripe with the demo is it doesn't showcase what the game is 'actually' about.

Yes, hunting big monsters is usually the short-term goal of most quests, but the longterm goal is foraging, carving, combining and crafting.

The 'easy' quest should have been a kelbi hunt combined with foraging for blue mushrooms.

The 'hard' quest should have been yian-kut ku. If you defeat kut-ku with time to spare, a plessie/rath/lagi/whatever appears and you can try to kill it with the time remaining!

This would have given good challenge to the fanbase that already play, and already know they're going to get the game, while also giving the new players (the audience I would aim a demo at) a chance to be eased into the game a bit :)

Personally I love the camera controls of MH, I have no problem navigating around on land or in water. Dodging enemy attacks are easy on either water and land as well, especially when the direction of the dodge often doesn't matter. So the camera controls wouldn't even really play into that. Especially since you can auto-target the monsters now, it's harder than ever to not know where the monster is.

Haven't seen the trailer Retro's talking about, but the original on Wii allowed you to customize your character's gender, face, skin tone, hair style/color, voice, and, if I remember correctly, eye color. I would assume that they haven't removed it from these editions.

Well it sounded like to me he was talking about someone else other than your character.

Is there a way to lock the camera on the monster in the Wii U version. I was trying to find a way but I couldn't lol.

Also I have to agree the demo isnt friendly to newcomers to the series. At first I just didnt understand it but after talking to you fine people here on this site and going to some MH forums I found out what there was to do, now I am totally hook. But it shouldnt have taken going to forums to figure out the demo.
