Monster Hunter: World (PS4/XB1/PC)

  • Youtube Video

    Capcom released a Coral Highlands gameplay video where the game capture guy is just having a Bad Day and the voice over guy just won't break character.

    So, I think you'll get a kick out of this. They made a couple commercials with a Japanese actor named Yamada Takayuki and they're... unique.

    The last beta is live until 6 pm PST Sunday. The new Nergigante quest is pretty, well, just take a look at the clip.

  • @DMCMaster Cool you're playing long sword, that's my longtime main actually. If you would permit me to backseat game for a moment, the R2 + △ and R2 + O are advanced moves new to World, the weapon's core are the △ combo, the spirit combo on R2, and the fade slash on △ + O.

    So basically your normal attacks build up the spirit gauge, roughly a full bar of which can be spent on the spirit combo. If you land the final hit, the roundslash, your spirit gauge will level up and you will get a damage boost for all your weapon actions. You start at colorless and your gauge levels up to white, yellow, and red with each successive roundslash that connects. And of course both the spirit gauge's contents and color level drain over time.

    The fade slash is the most important nuance to the weapon, as it can be performed hopping left, right, or back. It's used for positioning and to keep up aggression against the monster, and can be followed with R2 for an advancing slash that combos into the third step of the spirit gauge combo, right before the roundslash.

    I would suggest learning those instincts to start, and how to use them to pressure a monster. Be a little bit greedy with the end of your combo, as leveling up your spirit gauge is usually worth taking a survivable hit — of course, if you take a hit before you can get the roundslash off, you'll be quite sad.

  • I only played a small amount of the first Beta, and I’m trying to resist playing any more. I want it to feel as fresh as possible, and the launch is so close. I’m amazed at how much fun I had in such a short time, though, even without the whole gathering/crafting/preparing loop, which is arguably the lynchpin of the entire experience.
    Less than a week until we all can hunt together! Send me a friend request on PS4 or Xbox if you haven’t already!

  • Pre ordered the game and exited to jump in, but i have some questions :

    1- Is it hard to change the weapon style mid game?

    2- does the armour pieces have wight stat like souls games?

  • I just tried the beta this weekend and really loved it! It's my first time playing a Monster Hunter game so it's a lot to take in. But I think the game explains things in a good way and it feels pretty accessible. I heard it's not as intimidating as the older incarnations. How are you MH veterans feeling about this latest title? Are you happy about the changes they've made?

  • @A7X458 There is no weight mechanic like Elder Scrolls, or anything that changes your evade speed or how fast your character moves like Nioh. Armor only differs in skills, defense, elemental resistance, and appearance.

    For your question about switching weapons type, besides actually crafting a current tier weapon, it's all down to instinct and practice. There is no character leveling, perk tree, or weapon proficiency stat. Depending on the kind of player you are though, it may be beneficial to play through much of the game with one kind of weapon to build up your instincts with it. And more related to your other question, some weapon types have different movement speeds and evade animations while drawn.

    Personally, I feel that hardly anything was removed from the base formula. Rather, they’ve built upon the foundation of the older games that we love. I was expecting much bigger alterations to improve accessibility and scale, but I was amazed at how familiar it all felt. Every element I have come to love was present in all its glory. The difference seems to be the vision: it all seems bigger and more detailed, with some intelligent quality-of-life implementations. Also, it seems that they’ve doubled down on that sense of a believable yet alien ecosystem, with all the little interactions between different elements and creatures.

  • I started an EZA Monster Hunter Discord channel a while back, and it actually has a good amount of members. It was only utilized here and there, but we’re in the process of revamping it and adding some stuff. Hopefully it’ll be a good hub for EZA hunters new and old to gather and have a good time.

    If anyone is interested, here’s the invite

    Happy Hunting!

  • Basically just a day away...

    I feel the hype penetrating outward from my body. It's a little painful at this point.

  • So we are damn close to release and I need a crew. I already posted in the other thread for adding friends but if any one here is playing on PS4 don't hesitate to add me. PSN is in my Sig.

  • Let's-a-go.

    Im currently sitting at my front door with my laptop just waiting for Amazon to deliver my copy

  • Currently I'm having a true internal struggle on whether to jump in or not

  • @bard91 Join us. The water is whatever temperature you like it to be when you swim.

    I actually haven't gotten a chance to buy it yet, going to rectify that as soon as I get out of work.

  • @SabotageTheTruth I was leaning towards doing so until I came home to find my PS4 external hard-drive not working and having the PS4 acting up as well, I think it is working fine now but having spent more than I wanted too recently I'm gonna err on the side of caution for now.

  • ill jump in when i clean up the backlog a bit

  • The Paolumu fight is actual genius, the Coral Highlands is like top 5 video game levels so far. Must sleep.
