@DomGC Plus if you play on switch, its going to run like crap. (I don't have it, but woo did the demo not do a good job hooking me.)

Nintendo are like woman, You love them for whats on the inside, not the outside.

Been having an absolute blast with the game and been having fun co-oping with friends in the post game. Anybody got any tips for farming bottle caps? Could do with a few more of those SR Den runs.

@DomGC Hey if the game runs better on the switch then the demo did I'm more then willing to buy it, But the grinding does sound a little much, is it worse then the mainline series of games?

@Snatcher I am not sure it runs better on the same areas but most of the areas run fine and on the prior áreas you kind of get use to it after a while. The main story is not that bad in terms of grinding. I believe he is talking about post credits content

@DomGC It's kind of a given about the grind and need for it on an RPG that it's also based on the main series. They either do content that is accessible for everyone but isn't relevant to endgame levels or give something that requires level and strategy to be accessed and rewards with stuff for endgame and PVP, where there's most of the meat in my opinion.

Considering that they heard the feedback of the first game and part of it was "make it more difficult, like the main entries" it's expected that these missions are hard. I wouldn't say that you require max level though, I'm doing this stuff at level 60. There's also certain challenges that don't rely much on level, but on doing certain combat mechanics or otherwise you are doomed regardless of it.

I get that the grind isn't for everyone, but the way I see it it's simply more content for the people that want more. Since they introduced another elder dragon, it would be unbalanced to just give it to anyone. It's like having a legendary Pokemon available since early in the story and it's the same with the sets.

@Snatcher I honestly don't know why suddenly people are getting so concerned about fps. Personally, I didn't have any serious bad experience with the game in either the demo or the main game. When it's bad, it kinda resembles Zelda BOTW frame drops but just as that game is momentarily and then it's good again. It may be my imagination, but I also see it even more stable with updates.

About the grind, it's a Monster Hunter game so there's grind for armor and weapons as well as getting monsters, but it's the kind of game designed to have an enjoyable loop in said grind. It isn't for everyone, just like every game, but most people seem to enjoy it. I have 100+ hours and still having lots of fun with it.

@roy130390 the BS already starts when you have to grind those stupid coins just to PLAY the endgame content. I just can't be bothered to collect thousands of those just because I want to even get to the endgame content.

I may actually give it another shot this weekend but I doubt I'll get very far.

That said, I can't complain too much about it because I did get a decent but of playtime out of it all but while I keep enjoying certain Monster Hunter games while playing through them, the AWFUL design for a lot of the endgame content keeps putting me off them before long.

Rise is exactly what I want out of the series, I just wish they would finally stop trying to appeal to the idiots who think they have to play every single game for thousands of hours because I keep hitting points where I just don't care enough to actually suffer through whatever crap they throw at you before you even unlock all the endgame options.

Bit of a rant there but it just continues to bother me every since the dumb arse guild quest and relic system.

@DomGC As a tip, can get SR tickets from other tickets. It's kinda annoying to check every chest, but between those, nutriments and bottle caps you end up getting tons of good stuff somewhat fast. Narcaruga has helped me made all that stuff much faster as I just collect everything in my sight in a couple minutes avoiding everything else.

I haven't played Rise yet and it might take some time as I'm waiting for a good discount on it (it's worth full price but I'm cheap haha) but I did love the demo and found the combat much more enticing than on 4U, which was already good.

@roy130390 Well when I was playing the demo, it just looked really ugly to me, On top of the rez drops to, but I see what your saying. so is the grind just as much as other Monster hunter games or RPG? or is it worst/more then monster hunter games/RPG? I know what you said, I just want to be clear.

@Snatcher The artstyle? Wow, I'm actually surprised to hear that since it got a lot of praise, but I guess that it isn't for everyone. Personally I love it, I wouldn't even mind a main entry looking like that. Looked way more alive, with better designs, colourful and better animated than Pokemon Shield to me.

The grind is pretty much equal to other Monster Hunter games. You constantly farm monsters for eggs and parts to make better gear. Leveling up practically happens on it's own while you do this, but if you wanna level up for any reason you can beat a monster a few times and then you have the option to press ZR and ZL at the same time to automatically finish the fight. You can also speed up fights with the + button so that animations get an x2 and x3 speed.

The game is pretty much built around this loop so that progress feels constant and satisfying. Progressing through the story needs little to no grind in my experience.

@roy130390 Well not the artstyle per say, But more or less the grass, and the tree just Made it look worst when the rez or FPS dropped, I also think it needs a little tint to it as its a little to bright for me, But maybe I should re download the demo and turn it down.

@DomGC It sounds like the DLC for Fantasy Life, where you have to grind to a really high level just to reach the extra content, only for the DLC story to be over after 30 minutes.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

DomGC

Well, I've reached the point where I completely stop caring for the game now. It really is just grinding so you can start grinding for more ***** you don't really have any use for after a while. Just like the first game then.

I enjoyed my run through the game more than with the first one but ultimately it's still just a worse Pokémon to me.

DomGC

roy130390

It's the opposite for me haha. 100+ hours and still having fun and waiting for all the announced content. Meanwhile I just played Pokemon Sword for about 15 hours. I still have hope on Pokémon Arceus, but even if it fails I'm pretty happy with MH Stories 2 so I wouldn't be that disappointed.

I haven't even finished Stories 2. Lost interest around Nergigante ,and so I've just been playing The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. Will probably pick it back up in order to properly finish the game after I beat TGAAC, unless WarioWare comes out before that. I also wanna try and beat Xenoblade 2's Torna DLC and Future Connected, since those two have been on my list for a while.

I've been addicted to the end game grind. I'm slowly but surely gathering together my dream team and adding great genes as I find them, all while slowly making progress through the Elder's Lair.

If you add me, I need to at least know you or I won't add you back.

@roy130390 Currently my team is Silverwind Narga, Boltreaver Astalos, Glavenus, Teostra, Stygian Zinogre, and an elementless Palamute. I'm working on getting Hellblade Glavenus soon., and if I can I want to replace Teostra with Velkhana because another Power based fire monster seems redundant.

@TeeJay Nice! I use Silverwind Narcaruga, Thunderlord Zinogre, Dragon Palamute, Velkhana, Nergigante and Kushala Daora. Kushala and Silverwind might be replaced though.
