    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

    Post by Reaperfan on Fri May 31, 2013 5:55 am

    Who else has it?

    Who else wants to play in a group?

    I may not be very far, but it's been a few weeks after getting it and playing solo has already gotten so darn lonely.

    EDIT: Posting right before I go to sleep. Will check in tomorrow and we'll see if we can get anything going winking


    Thread has changed! Now it's one of those "talk about this game" threads pony03

    I've got it on the 3DS (and have only played solo so far...) and have recently unlocked the high-rank village quests. My favorite weapons are the Switch Axe/Dual Blades for melee, and the Light Bowguns for ranged. I also have a bad habit of feeling like I need to make ALL of the armor for each monster, so I tend to not progress very quickly pony02

    Well, that's my story (so far pony13 ). Let's hear all yours!

    I have it on Wii U but I believe you can't play the 3ds version online unless your in the vicinity of someone playing it on the Wii U

    Really? Not even with other 3ds users? Well I guess that explains why I've never even randomly connected to anybody before. I can't afford to buy it again for the WiiU, and it will be a long time before my roommate picks it up...

    I am sad face now sad

    I have it on he 3ds and really like it. My son also has a copy and we play locally, but you can't play online. That is only for the wii u. I may pick up the wii u version on the cheap some time later because you can transfer your game over. A thread would be a good idea.

    in G rank... don't know what to do now... I have a hammer with over 1300 atk and white sharpness but is still takes forever to get new gear killing beasties only thing I can think of next is to make the g rank purple ludroth gunner armor for the anti poison and status atk boost so I can go back to using my bow's, maybe work on getting a maxed kelbi bow with an awakening set so I can just slime spam my way to dire miralis... I want to at least see him even if I doubt I can solo him...

    Brief info - The first MH I played was the very first one on PS1 well first one in the West as they was one before in Japan called MHG I think? anyway after that it was MH Freedom Unite for PSP, then MH Tri for Wii, then I imported MH Portable 3rd for the PSP from Hong Kong and I play that in Japanese on the PSP. And finally I brought the WiiU MH package on release - worth every penny.

    MH1 is insanely hard, on Freedom Unite I am more-a-less done, I have finished every in-game quest and have full White Fata G armour : ) done with Tri and MHP3 as well (Tri more so) and on MH3U I am in high-rank in the village and have the Goldbeard Ceadeus urgent online.

    Monster Hunter is one of my favorite series, and probably the only games I consider myself somewhat 'pro' at ; ) I think I know everything there is to know and am here to lend a helping hand.

    So yeah that sums it up for me : )

    I really want this game.

    Having just bought my second PS3 after my first one YLODed, I just don't think I can afford to buy a system solely for a single game, though.  I'd even settle for a Vita and whatever MH I can get for that, as I just got PS+, but I just don't think it's going to happen...for a while.

    It's a shame, because this seems like one of the few games with any replayability even somewhat close to the Souls'.

    It seems like, right now at least, the majority of players are playing on the WiiU or 3DS, so I'd recommend those versions if you're looking to get into the series (probably the WiiU version since it has innate online functionality, where the 3DS doesn't have any unless you also have a WiiU to act as an online medium).  I've not been with it that long (only a few weeks at this point), but it's already gotten me into it as much as I was into Dark Souls happy

    EDIT:  If you're looking for cheap though (at least as cheap as consoles get), the 3DS is definitely still worth it.  It's what I've been playing on, and even with no online play it's been keeping me going for weeks, and I'm only a little more than halfway done with the main story campaign :razz:
    The community (what little of it I've been exposed to so far) even recommends you take on the online quests solo as a show of "badass-itude" since, much like Dark Souls, these games are known for their difficulty, so beating the online campaign (which is designed for teams of 2-4 people) solo is a way to show your awesomeness at the game winking

    I love this series so much.
    MH1 I never played.
    MHF I completed everything. (without the Yian Garuga glitch)
    MHF2/Unite I tore apart, doing every single quest and even making the G rank White Fatalis armor with my brother.
    MH Tri I beat the single player and got bored of the online because everyone wanted to kill the Barroth all the time.
    I'm in the 3ds Ultimate at the moment, with every Low quest done and I have the urgent to get into high. I even planned out what Long Sword, Hunting Horn, and Gun Lance weapons I'm getting.

    The only thing I've heard about it was that climbing walls was supposed to be a bigger deal. What people have seen of it the climbing actions seem much faster and smoother.
