World is so good. And online is free on Steam. If you have it on there, I’m always game to play together if you want. And I just started a new save, so I’m at the beginning too. World is so fantastic. Definitely just say the word if you want to give it a go. Or even if you play solo, I think you’ll love it. I was never into playing online, never had any interest... until I got into MH. Now it’s one of the few games I actually look forward to playing online. Partly because it’s not competitive and you work as a team, and I love that comradery, but also because it’s just crazy fun hunting with others. I’ve made so many hunting buddies over the years. Some of the best experiences in gaming in my life were with others while hunting. It’s fantastic hunting with people you know from gaming sites. Lots of people always available, you at least somewhat know them already and it’s easy to contact each other.

Sorry to hear about you losing your job. That sucks. I got laid off for a few weeks but I was really lucky and got recalled soon after. I know a lot of others weren’t so fortunate. But it sounds like it worked out for the best if you got a better job as a result. It may have cost you your savings but in the long run that’s a big win. Buying a house is a great investment. I don’t have my own house but my brother just bought one a few years ago. I decided to invest in gold and silver for a hard asset safety net instead of a house, and am now focused on stock market investments, but a house is an investment that serves a purpose. Money saved on rent, equity that can be leveraged if needed, and, everyone needs a place to stay. Property taxes are the only thing that sucks. Watch out for that.

I’m also skipping the new consoles. Steam + Switch covers 99% of games, even MS exclusives and a few Sony exclusives. I spent a small fortune on 10 TB SSD space for my PC, but really, you kinda need that much space for a long term Steam library. Maybe not all in the beginning but overtime your library will grow. Over the years, mine has ballooned to nearly the entire 10 TB. I deleted all the games that also released on Switch though and saved at least 1-2 TB there. Aside from the few AAA games that took a severe downgrade like DOOM and Witcher 3. But ya, storage space is a real problem. I recommend getting an SSD if you can. It’s not a super duper mind blowing game changer like they’ve hyped them up to be, but they are nice, and do reduce load times and fast travel times, etc. Worth the extra cost, imo.

@Ralizah Cool, figured I'd offer. I'm going to sit on the preorder for a bit just in case someone around here needs one. (And back up in case either BB or Amazon falls through)

@JaxonH For me it is more of a lesson learned. I rented a house when I moved cross country, and the owner decided to sell it and renege on letting me renew my lease and he gave me so little notice I ended up car dwelling for several months. I never want to go through that again. But it is a good investment as well; you work IT in the Real Estate industry and you pick up a few things over time. So I'll rent out the house that I buy (fairly and not the way I was treated) when I am ready to move. I have some metals investments (as well as a bit coin miner), but my focus after I got a stable place to live (and then recovered from the income hit from COVID) has been on killing my student loan debt (classes start in march for me so need a clean slate...). I swear I will do back flips in the parking lot when I get that cleared. (note to self...never go to a private university again unless you hit the lottery)

I remember your situation with COVID; like a week after you got called back I was let go... but like I said I'm not complaining. The timing put me in the right place at the right time as the dude I'm replacing is retiring. Plus I like my boss...unlike my last job lol!

My GTX 980 will last me another year or two on ultra settings for most games I think so that will be my big console until I update the GPU. I'm over 300 in switch games so at this point I'm just trying to work that down. (I just picked up Pokemon Sword...I'm so behind). If I pick up World I'll get it on the xbox (goal is to buy hdds for the 4 and one next year) especially since I have gamepass.

– Tsujimoto said the team “decided that it would be better for the players to understand… what the game is about” by going with Monster Hunter Rise as the name

– Tsujimoto added that they want to have a title “that reflects what it’s about rather than just a number”

– New way of naming the games also planned for the future

– Quests separated into the gathering hub for multiplayer and village quests for multiplayer returns for Monster Hunter Rise

– Single-player progression won’t affect your ability to play multiplayer quests and vice versa

– Cutscenes will no longer prevent you from joining multiplayer quests with friends like in Monster Hunter World

– Can skip cutscenes in single-player and multiplayer

– Can rewatch cutscenes later

– The devs laughed if they were inspired by Zelda: Breath of the Wild

– They have wanted to make a Monster Hunter with more freedom of movement since Monster Hunter Generations

– Capcom wants players to use the Wirebug in between attacks to make new combos

– Wirebug attacks not customizable

– Other new elements regarding actions the team can’t talk about yet

Ryozo Quote

I believe 'So Tasty' is in the game... There's actually a new, extra level of voice clips in general, which you may have noticed watching the footage. A hunter will say certain things during the action. With regards to that kind of taste of how it feels like for the player, we know that some people will know what they think classic Monster Hunter is, some people won't like changes to that sort of thing. So we do try and keep it so that you can adjust the experience to your own taste. So for example, you can actually turn off these voice clips. You can either reduce the frequency or you could even just turn it on to the classic grunts and groans if that's what Monster Hunter is to you. We're aware of the fact that people feel like there's a certain style that feels like Monster Hunter to them, and we want to make sure you can experience that if that's your preference.

No voice chat sucks, but everything else is either as expected or hype. Custom text shoutouts will suffice for necessary communication, as in MHGU, and we still have Discord. I already have one set up for MH voice chat, so I can just send invite links as needed, especially if hunting with anyone here (of course some prefer not using chat and that's fine too).

Separate village quests and hub quests is great! Was worried theyd combine them again like in World. Also, skipping cutscenes is a Godsend. They heard the complaints from World it seems.

Seriously? Gyro? That’s great news!

So can we use keyboard? I prefer typing over talking anyway. And how are they going to handle online? Like World? Or as in previous games? Any word on that?

So, some good news and some bad. Mostly good though.

No voice chat. Not sure why, but ya. Still have custom text shoutouts for communicating so the necessary communication wont be an issue. And we can obviously use Discord for hunting groups when we want to chat.

The online hub quests will once again be separate from the village quests, which is awesome because it's way more content, and people who just want to do one or the other can.

Scaling monsters like World did is in tact as well, so the difficulty will vary based on the number of players.

Also, Arreks interview

Also, drop in MP mid quest like World, and event quests will be able to be DOWNLOADED instead of only being available online for a set time period.

And we're back to the more personal 4 player lobbies, not the 16 player mega lobbies of World.

@JaxonH Monster scaling is literally all I wanted for mp. It means guild quests should be fun and challenging regardless if you solo it or go in with a full crew.

Literally everything other than the lack of voice chat makes it sounds like this is going to be one of the best games in the series, and, frankly, I personally couldn't care less about voice chat.

@Ralizah
With how they’ve set up MH Rise, the hub is essentially the entire game’s equivalent of MH World. Playable solo? Check. Playable in MP with scaled difficulty? Check. Complete with cutscenes and everything to get a proper story-like experience? Check. Cutscenes can be skipped and no longer impede online play? Check.

That right there, even entirely ignoring the village quests, is the equivalent of MH World portable. Those who prefer the World style of just one set of quests shared for SP and MP, can have exactly that via the hub now. But for us diehards, we get double the content 😁

Waiting until March next year for Monster Hunter Rise is fine with me. I was just thinking about getting back into playing Monster Hunter 3 for my 3DS and still have alot to do in that game including fighting my first Golden Caedus and some triple monster quests.

Mosnters in Monster Hunter 3 i forgot what they look like
-Gobul
-Gigginox
-Purple Royal Ludroth
-the other Lagiacrus monsters
-and Jhen Mohran

also dunno if anyone else besides me remembers this but Volvidon , azuros, and Lagombi have been around since Monster Hunter 3

Higher quality footage of the TGS gameplay demo. This is much more crisp, isn’t nearly as compressed as previous footage. And it looks killer.

@urrutiap
Ya I remember fighting G rank Volvidon and Lagombi. Love Purple Ludroth.

What companion combo are you gonna have while playing solo? Palico+Palamute, double Palamute, or double Palico?
I think I'll try out double Palamute. I've heard in the recent interviews that the more aggressive you are with the monster, the more frequent the dogs will be in their attacks.
Seeing that footage, I hope there's a black fur option for the Palamute, so I can have both white and black.
On another note, I've noticed that Rise has a beastmaster feel going for it. The newest central gimmick, the wirebug, is a living creature instead of an inanimate tool, there's the more animalistic Palamutes for companions to contrast the anthropomorphic Palicos, and lastly endemic life found in maps can provide various buffs now. Rise is really putting emphasis on utilizing various animals to assist you during hunts, and as a fan of rpg/mmo class concepts like beastmasters and summoners I find that really cool.

@IronWarrior94 Palamute+Palico for solo. I'm very excited for Palamutes and also nostalgic for Felynes, so I will definitely enjoy using both!

After a while though I might bring certain combos for different quests. I could bring two Palamutes on a small monster slaying quest, or two Palicos for a capture quest to have plenty of trap laying.

Assuming they'll both have their own unique tech abilities like World, I could see certain load out combinations changing for different monsters! It will be fun to mix and match abilities between the two types for all sorts of quests.

Also... Capcom alluded to additional actions that they couldn't announce just yet. What if you now have action combo's in tandem with your Palamute and Palico, like team attacks that might utilize Wirebugs in some way? What if you even have unique team attacks between 2 Palamutes, 1+1 of each, and 2 Palico's for solo? Then you could choose your companions depending on the action combo's that you prefer! It could also explain why Capcom added companions to multiplayer quests, so that you can do team attacks with your companions, and even your fellow hunters' companions too!

@Ulysses @IronWarrior94
I like the double Palamute, but I think I’ll go with one of each like Ulysses. Try to keep it balanced, although I’m sure there will be quests where I do two palamutes or two palicoes. I’m not sure the extent to which we’ll be able to customize and level up and collect palamutes and palicos (will it be more like MHGU or World in that respect?) but having a good variety would be nice.

I hadn’t even thought about action combos with our partners. The only thing that makes me think that might not be the case is the fact we saw people play at TGS and none of the moves involved the partners, but who knows. It would definitely be really cool if that is the case. I just wanna see my felynes ride a rocket barrel into the dome of a monster like they did in MHGU. They had such crazy attacks in that game! I almost feel a little disappointed the felynes won’t be focusing on attack much in this game. Doesn’t seem like the palamutes will be doing those kinds of crazy attacks.

Anyone who wants to gear up for Monster Hunter Rise with voice chat, you’ll want to act now.

On Switch, you need a headset that connects to the console via headphone jack (easy to extend to couch with a headphone jack extension cable) and then connects to phone via Bluetooth. The headset designed for this was discontinued, the Arctis 3 with Bluetooth from SteelSeries. It works fantastic and is the perfect solution for Switch voice chat via Discord.

But as I said, they’re discontinued and SteelSeries site is even sold out. However, Amazon has a few Renewed for like $87 which is a great price given the cheapest you can find them new now is $150 from 3rd party sellers on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/SteelSeries-Bluetooth-Headset-Certifie...

Otherwise, SteelSeries does have some more expensive model headsets with Bluetooth, but the cheapest alternative I could find was $200. That might be worth the investment if you want a really nice headset that also connects via Bluetooth for voice chat. If you just want the headset for audio then I recommend the $99 Arctis 1 Wireless which uses a proprietary lag free frequency and USB-C dongle (Bluetooth for wireless audio kinda sucks because you have to buy a special BT dongle and there’s some lag, but for voice chat it’s excellent given the game audio is wired).

For the record, I own both the Arctis 3 with Bluetooth which I used for hundreds of hours of voice chat in MHGU, and the Arctis 1 Wireless which I use for audio on Switch and PC.

Just wanted to say I've actually been listening to some of MHGU soundtrack on Spotify when I'm not playing the game and damn is it catchy. Monster Hunter World doesn't have that effect on me at all (it's also on Spotify), so I really hope that the music is more on the MHGU side in Rise.

It's funny how when you're hunting you don't really ever even hear the music because you're just so focused on the hunt. It was a big surprise finding out that MHGU has a lot of cool themes that aren't the main theme and the cooking jingle.

JaxonH

@Varkster
MH World suffered from the same issue Zelda BotW suffered from. Both incredible games, both some of my faves of all time, and both had great music in their own right... but both also had soundtracks that didn’t measure up to the grandeur of their respective series’ legacy.

MH Rise, at least so far, seems like a return to form in terms of soundtrack. Btw I had no idea MHGU soundtrack was on Spotify. That’s actually really awesome.

@JaxonH Yeah I'd say that's a fair comparison, they went for the more "ambient" kind of soundtrack in World, which is a shame because they have a really strong soundtrack in most previous games. I'm not sure about this but maybe they even got a new team of composers for World and left the other team to work on the handheld titles, because even though the two styles sound similar there seems to be something missing in World's beats. I guess the little "crank" that most MHGU soundtracks have, usually somewhere in the middle, where the song really gets going and gets you really pumped, I just don't hear it in World.

I really like what I heard so far from MHRise but obviously I haven't heard much - just the trailer music, which does indeed sound like MHGU and the music they showed off in the gameplay footage, which I didn't quite listen to because people were talking over it.

I have a separate playlist on my Spotify just for movie/game sountracks, sometimes when I play a game I look up on Spotify to see if I can find a sountrack I like and sometimes when I'm in the mood I like to turn something on that gets you going. Did that with Black Mesa, SOMA, Mass Effect 3, Tekken 7, etc. Some good stuff out there on Spotify, just a shame that most Japanese composers only started posting their soundtracks there very recently, which means you're not likely to find games like Persona 1-3, Trauma Center/Trauma Team, etc. It's a shame because those games had some killer music.

I would also post some tunes I really like from MHGU but I can't write/read Japanese, unfortunately...

Varkster

IronWarrior94

@Varkster For World, Capcom wanted to approach a style of music that was still faithful to Monster Hunter but had a "Hollywood feel". This video goes into the making of World's music and probably explains how it was handled differently from past game soundtracks.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BS9_neMyesM

As for the music in Rise, from what little is heard Gaijinhunter believes the composer is Reo Uratani, who was the composer for Generations and responsible for each of the Fated Four themes and Valstrax.
