I really want this but $60 is so steep knowing I never make it to g-rank in these games. Iím sure as soon as I see someone playing it on twitch Iíll impulse buy it.

This game has everything going for it:

An amazing story

Incredible combat

Deep gameplay

Superb Graphics




This game looks like it is going to be an ABSOLUTE masterpiece and an early contender for game of the Year, if not best game of all time.

good news gamer, there is no G-rank, so your full purchase value will be goining towards the content you enjoy.

Yea I'm kind of feeling like if they put out something more of an incremental upgrade to Generations or XX on Switch I'm still gonna want to play this. I know it's kinda console warsy but I would have liked to play the good new monster hunter on a portable system even if they had to gimp it a bit. Maybe they'll do like a downgraded Monster Hunter Land, who knows.

it's like every other MH. this one has Low rank > high rank. then, when they make "world ultimate" ina a year, there will be g rank.

Whereas the game not being on console has kept a lot of people from playing it. I bought a 3ds just to play 4 and huddling over a tiny screen at home with a big tv sitting there doing nothing sucks.

The switch obviously being both would be the best solution, but a proper ďgoodĒ console release will hopefully do wonders for this franchise.

If itís anything like the old ones you just want to play when your friends are. Pubbie groups are a mixed bag at best.

Oh for sure, that's the exact reason I was hoping the NX would be what the Switch is.

every other one had a 2nd release like that. no guarantees it wont be dlc or something tho. who knows now that its on a big boy console.

Yeah, it's hard to say, there's a lot that's different about World. They might release Monster Hunter World Ultimate in a year or so with G-rank, or they might release an expansion pack that adds G-rank to this one. It's one of those things where they've always done it one way in the past so it very well might be the same this time, but enough other things are different that there's a real chance this might be different, too.

whatever g rank edition they do will most likely also be an update for people who already have the game since its on console and pc now

Broke down and got this yesterday. Just a ton of QOL improvements like not having to buy or craft whetstones, having an in-game mechanic to track monters, the maps being totally connected instead of segmented confusing weirdness, weapon crafting trees in-game, and a fee other things i canít think of.

Servers are naturally hosed so I havenít been able to play online, but Iíve heard that even those who have been able to, had issues running quests that have cutscenes.

Yeah I couldnt join lumpys story mission even though we were at the same quest. Want to try later while in a squad and starting it from the Gathering Hub. The SOS flare is cool but i dont think joining someones quest that way would complete the story quest

this game is really good so far. there's still some weird confusing stuff but a lot of the qol changes like the flies, weapon tree, a bestiary that shows you what monsters weaknesses are, break points, and effective weapon types to break em is epic, epic for the win. also having unlimited use fishing rod, bug net, pickaxe, and whetstone is a godsend.

there's still some bizarre oversights tho like i don't think the game has mentioned sharpness anywhere? make sure you sharpen your weapons everyone if it goes below green [unless u have a weapon that starts on yellow that is....]

the interconnected zones are cool but like 90% of the good new qol stuff isn't technically demanding at all and should have been there a decade ago!

Between the quality of life improvements and the ease of controls, this is definitely a great starting point.

I really want this game but then I think about when I was playing the demo of the 3DS one and felt super bad about attacking the dinosaur that the game wanted me to go after while it was just drinking out of a pond minding its own business. RIP Iím sorry 😢

If killing monsters makes you feel bad, you can capture them for more rewards. Just be ready to murder them if you run out of tranqs at the last second though
