@JaxonH Unfortunately, my current laptop would struggle to run World; it can handle some indie games, but it really isn't built for anything too complex. I'm considering building my own PC for gaming and messing around with Unity down the line, but that isn't a huge priority at the moment. I think I'll test the waters with Rise first, but who knows? It might catapult me into other current and future MH entries.

Up close and personal is another reason why I'd prefer melee in MH. Gotta experience all these monster designs in their full glory! I'm definitely glad that the weapons I'm considering are decent starter weapons. Not sure which one I'll try to master first, but I tend to stick to something until I get used to it unless I really dislike the combat style.

@FattyWhale_42 Thanks for the heads up! Definitely a tempting offer.

@Tyranexx
I totally recommend scooping MHGU for that price (if you're interested), however, I think it may be best to wait for MH Rise and play that first. MHGU can be a tough nut to crack for new players. It's a phenomenal game. But it may turn you off from the franchise if it's your first.

But once you've played MH Rise, understand the mechanics and get the appeal of the gameplay hook, if you were to then go back and play MHGU, I think you'd absolutely love it.

I've given it a few days and I'm just not feeling the Magnamalo design yet. Maybe I'll change my mind when I fight it, but to me it feels like a bootleg Zinogre with a bulbous nose.

I know, I'm just talking about the design lol. If it is anything like Zinogre I'm sure it will be a fun fight. But I think that's the root of my peeve with it. I feel like Zinogre was the samurai monster to begin with so this one just feels redundant to me.

I really can't get over how amazing that Dual Blade design is. It's essentially one sword but you pull out the sheathe and use it like a second blade! I really hope we see more novel designs like this for Rise. It makes me want to start out with Dual Blades just to make use of such an incredible weapon design!

Now I'm curious to see every Tattarus Steel weapon design. It seems like we get a peek at the HBG from the brief glimpse of one of the new female characters.

Speaking of, I'm hoping they bring back more difficulty into Heavy Bowgun. World really did make the weapon class feel like Easy Mode; from giving you Evade Distance and Auto Load for free to letting you move while shooting, erasing the skill ceiling of having to be correctly positioned from past games. Bowguns felt like a Lost Planet third-person shooter thrown into a primitive game universe where everyone else uses bone clubs and swords. It just felt cheap and unrewarding.

Combine that with completely removing Gunner armor and with it the majority of Gunner-specific armor skills, and gunners as a class felt like a complete afterthought for World. Greatly disappointing since gunning has been one of my favorite aspects of the world of Monster Hunter. (that's a small "w" lol)

Ah, I wouldn't even know what that is, @Joeynator3000 ... Presumably, no footage of that yet, then?

the Magmamalo is pretty much a combination of a zinogre with a vajra from Gods Eater Burst. and just looking at at the thing, Im pretty sure youll make a samurai armor set from Magmamalo materials

I miss the old bird wyverns from Freedom Unite and Monster Hunter 3. the Queropeco and Hypnocatrice

When I first got into MH3U, and fought Qurupeco for the first time, it called a Rathian which scared the heck out of me. My friend tried to take it on, but I was too scared to get near it.

Next hunt it calls in Deviljho. Of course I'd never seen it before. My friend just said, "Dude... RUN!!!"

@JaxonH Oh yeah. So many great memories with Qurupeco! Deviljho was the pinnacle of fear back in MHTri, and I shuddered at High Rank Qurupeco quests. When I saw Qurupeco show up in MH3U G Rank quests I would just nope right out of the area after dungbombing the target haha! I wouldn't even give him time to call someone.

I would enjoy seeing him return in Rise, just for the nostalgia and fun of inducting newbies to his terrible ways.

One thing I wish Monster Hunter would explore in future games is more versatility with weapon types, like an expanded version of Bowgun part customization from MHTri. I would love to go on a quest with an SnS without the shield, and the game would naturally switch to a unique combo tree that's sort of a blend between SnS and DS combos.

Or take an Insect Glaive without the Kinsect. I always wanted an agile pole arm combo tree without the Kinsect buff management. I also think it would be fun to take a Lance without the shield, becoming quite literally "Evade Lance" with more agile jumps and movement.

Or, swap LS and GS hilts to focus the LS more around charge attack counter combos.

Or, take an SnS with a Lance shield to have slower, more defensive combos with charge attacks, perfect guard, and guard points.

In Tri, Deviljho was my worst nightmare...in 3U he was just "meh" to me. He wasn't terrifying anymore until 4U's G-rank when I encountered Savage and Apex. >.<

The queropeco never was a problem since it called up smaller "boss" monsters.

It was the Brachydios that gave me some trouble the first time around though

@JaxonH That MHGU discount is definitely tempting. However, I think I'll follow your advice and stick with Rise for the time being. I'm not exactly hurting for games to play right now. XD

And so the wait begins.

It’ll probably be a while before the hype cycle ramps up for this game. Likely after the holidays. Until then, we at least have MH World and MHGU to tide us over. I started over in MHW on PC since I migrated platforms, and need to play through the game again. Still in low rank.

It’s gonna suck waiting til March to play Rise, but... every day is one day closer to release. Let’s just hope they announce a MH Rise themed Switch at some point.
