I'm not big into gunning but I hope that sticky LBG is still good in Rise. I enjoyed how easy and mindless it was in Iceborne for fights that are otherwise frustrating

I hope evade reload is back that owned. Either as an attachment like world or seregios is in the roster (I haven't looked at the leaks don't tell me if seregios is back!!)

For weapons I tend to drift between them depending on availability and mood but I generally stick with:

Switch Axe - This is where MH finally clicked for me, and is a sentimental favorite
Lance - Offensively and defensively perfect
Hammer - Whenever I feel like going to P O U N D T O W N
Gunlance -

Probably going to also go Hunting Horn too since I really like its changes for Rise.

For videos I would recommend a Crap Guide To Monster Hunter World if you are in the mood for something humorous

Greatsword always, but i'll respect Capcom's effort to make the weapon fun to play and give Hunting Horn a serious go in Rise.

While my general response is just "yeah but I just like BIG SORD", I am curious to see what they did to make HH fun? I haven't been following information much; what did they change?

They automated a lot of the song-playing mechanics so that it feels like a strong bonus instead of a meta game you had to stay on top of. It also, i don't know, just feels like it hits like a truck now. It always has but these silkbind moves are amazing.

Like HH and Lance are the only weapons in Rise that make me feel like I'm straight up bullying the monster

Basically everything, but the biggest one is that you no longer need to worry about playing recitals to buff, as the HH will now play itself as long as you attack with the same note twice in a row. Here's a great video to show it off:

MH language, with the trashtalk turned down to 20%.

That being said they've already said we'll be seeing paid voice pack DLC, and if we get a Johnny Young Bosch voice pack I might have to convert.

Just fiddling with the demo off and on this week to get the controls into my muscle memory, and lol at how perfectly Arzuros clowns on the lance. Half his attacks almost seem perfectly designed to slip past your guard.

Like he's still Arzuros but if they give his rapid swiping attack to Gos Harag or something lancers are gonna have to remember to power guard that poo poo

The guild hall themes from 4u owned. Loved how there was multiple songs that rotated. I was real partial to this one because it was so different

I was disappointed when the guild hall from Gen was just one theme. Thankfully the airship from GU not only had multiple themes again but themes from older games you could play

I loved this theme! It gave me a lot of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon vibes.

Speaking of 4U I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the main theme.

My MHR weapon usage is probably gonna mirror that of my MHW trajectory: hammer until I hit a wall because I'm bad, then switch to lance, and gently caress around with bowguns in the post-game when I no longer have to worry about money/decos (the 50 switch axe hunts were all ZSD spams for Fatalis farming)

You know the game has come a long way because the thread is full of memes and inside jokes, but it took this long to mention the claw, which was the definitive thing about the series when I started playing.

As a newb who started with World, what buttons were you accessing with the Claw?

It was a way to use the dpad and the control nub at the same time, so you could control the camera independently of your hunter.



This was before the quick "camera jump to monster" buttons that showed up in 4 or maybe Gen.

A lady after my own Soul-Heart.

So regarding any "downgrades", I actually played Monster Hunter World entirely in 30 fps! I could have maybe gone higher, but I think my early tests in the first few hunts with 60 fps had frame drops, and when I put it down to 30 it was buttery smooth. That's the most important thing to me and Rise I don't think will likely have any problems staying at 30 the way they're building it.

Music is really good, I think the theme that I always come back to is the Ceadeus themes in 3. It's a boring fight but it's very much a spectacle and the music only adds to that. It really did feel like a final boss, and that being my first final boss it really did endear me to the series even more.

I'm also going to have zero issue staying on English. I gave it a try in World and I didn't find any of the voice acting grating or bad. And I didn't really mind the transition to actual words over fantasy unintelligible stuff. The callouts during hunts are bad though and I'm turning that off - even 20% seemed too frequent for me, and I'm usually pretty forgiving of hammy or silly mechanics. I guess in a game like this I want to stay focused and not be brought out of the moment by E'S UP TO SOMETHIN!!! But in terms of Japanese vs. English I don't really care, I want to play in the language that I know.

Much respect to the claw-users of old.

Man I am glad GU exists to give me a taste of old MH without nearly as many of the drawbacks. That said I'm sure I'd still have fun with them, but it probably wouldn't border on obsession like GU on Switch and World did
