    I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED! This is for myself and many others the equivalent of the Destiny 2 hype.

    I need that collectors edition and that PS4 Pro.

    I also need a chorus PS4 guild to grind out parts with! AAAHHHH

    I do still kinda wish we were getting XX Switch but I can't be mad when we're getting an all new game that looks so so good.

    You will play, Joe, and you will fucking like it.
    • It's got some of the Destiny RNG characteristics, but (for me) more satisfying. You carve 2-3 items off a monster once you kill it, and you need certain parts from certain monsters to make weapons/armor. So, if you need a Zinogre tail to make a sword, focusing on it's tail in combat ups the RNG of getting that part in your favor
    • All content is playable solo or multiplayer, no PvP, only PvE
    • All DLC is 100% free, no season pass, although it seems they will sell skins a la Overwatch/every 2017 game
    • There is no leveling whatsoever, all stats are determined by gear and skill

    I hope we may still get it as a $40 Switch title after MHW has gotten it's first year of sales in

    I definitely will pick this up, it looks right up my alley. I think I’ve always been intimidated by MH and have avoided it

    Paris Game Week news:
    • PS4 exclusive beta available to PS+ members starting December 9th. No beta to come for Xbone or PC.
    • Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn is a fully playable character exclusive to PS4. From the looks of things, it's more than just an armor set: it uses her full in-game model.
    Looks like I'll be picking up a PS4 before 12/9

    I am very excited for this game.

  12. I want to give this a try, but I really didn't like the one I had for the 3DS. The controls felt clunky and I got bored. PS4 might make it a bit easier for me on the control front.

    which one? 3U handled real poorly on 3ds, and from 4U on they've eliminated a lot of the clunkier encounters (no more swimming/water hunts)
     
  14. It had to be 3U. The swimming thing frustrated me to no end. And that was like the first hunt. Bleh.

    yep, i'm a MH enthusiast and i put less than 2 hours into 3U. the newer games are way better at focusing on what they do best.

    I played one of the Portables and 3U on 3DS and ranged from hating/disliking my time with both. For some reason I gave it a third shot with Generations and adored it despite the fact controlling it on the 3DS was less than ideal. It's not a game for everyone - lots of grinding for materials, even if they've sped it up the combat is still slow paced, monster fights can take a long time, etc. but it's one of the most addicting experiences for me. Finally killing a monster after fighting it for an extended period of time is so satisfying. The tweaks they're making to make the game friendlier and the fact it's on something I'll still enjoy controlling after a couple hours should make this one so, so good.

    Two areas and three monsters in the beta. Not bad.

    i wonder if any progress carries over. would love to start the proper game with three completed armor sets.

    you're in a cult, call your dad

    4U frustrated me to no end. Never quite figured out the best way to track a monster down and just never really progressed. Loved the concept, but couldn't make it work in my favor. This, however, looks fantastic.

    for tracking monsters, you basically just run through the zones until you find them, then you hit them with a paintball so you can track them on your map. are you going to be a ps4 player?

    you're in a cult, call your dad

    Yeah, I didn't find out about the paintball thing until much too late, unfortunately. Maybe I'll give it another run one of these days.

    And yep, PS4 or PC, but have a feeling I'll go PS4 for convenience/playerbase.
