Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter that completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a lively living and breathing eco-system full of predators…. and prey.
But but Switch versions but but won't sell on Playstation hahahaha
Mind you some nintendo fanboys even wanted the game to fail, just to prove it should have been made for the switch instead. You will not find more deluded fanboys than the nintendo ones.
You mean just like PS fan boys wanted it to fail when the series went to the DS?
Let's be honest this gen there has been one particular set of fanboys who have been far more deluded than any set of console fanboys have ever been.
@VINNIEPAZ Well, you are no different. Besides, the original Monster Hunter was on PS2.
I picked it up on my PS4 day one. I will get the next MH Switch title which will most likely be a completely different game.
Switch fanboys are the worst. Same with Wii fanboys back in the day
Vinnie, I didn't want it to fail when it went to the DS, I just wanted them to put some real effort in. Reusing the PS2 engine all those years on the DS made sense. But there should have also been a MAIN Monster Hunter title on consoles too. Finally out of the dark years where MH got dragged through the mud. About time Capcom.
Honestly, there is no reason that it should have sold so well IMO, it is a very unpolished game, and you cannot even do coop properly for of the assigned missions. It makes one player play 90% through before you can even join, so 3 people just wait for 20 minutes while the other guy tries to get all the cut-scenes to trigger, then have a 4 minute fight. Half of the monsters can stun you, by roaring, with no way to dodge and almost no animation to warn you and you just get stuck there, dying 50% of the time because you cannot move. (and only able to be negated MUCH later in the game) I don't mind stuns and paralyze, but the implementation is just stupid, it is basically just RNG sometimes. when you break parts, it will randomly drop materials, but never tells you if they dropped and are almost unable to be seen unless you just happen to be near it. Lots of just really stupid things that just shouldn't exist. I mean, I guess I speak as someone who intended to play a coop based game in coop, so I guess to be fair solo players probably don't have too many issues.
According to everyone who plays Monster Hunter, this was the best implementation since the series began.
I'm really sorry bro, but it sounds like you just need to get better at the game. You seem to have absolutely no idea that there is counters to the stuff you complain about. But even without those counters majority of the monsters moves are TELEGRAPHED and easily avoidable with just a little bit of stamina management. The assignments weren't a big deal either as you blow past them so incredibly fast. The only time I complained was literally on day one then I realize it wasn't bad at all. I'm actually confused you have trouble finding parts as the game tells you on the right side of the screen if parts are in the area. It actually holds your hand for that aspect of the game and I wish it didn't.
90% is a terrible exaggeration. You have to watch the cutscene with the monster in question. That's it. After that the others are free to join in and it's only on the 1st playthrough of the mission. If you leave the quest after the scene then rejoin or if you play it again you don't have to do that. I dislike the feature but don't lie about it. You can totally dodge roars. My cousin does it all the time, you can block them too (usually what I do)! You just have to learn to predict the monster's habits and strategies, then you can predict them. That's the whole point of the franchise! It isn't just some hack n slash action game, it's a hunting game and, while this edition holds your hand a lot more than the previous games did, it doesn't give you all the answers. Only experience can do that. If you won't put in the time you just won't get there.
@eon never played the other so just judging based on itself as an independent title. @purp I have no problem doing well in the game, just think the coop sucks. Good job on the cliche "get gud" comment though, so thoughtful... If you like it, fine, I think it is a mess.
im not going to lie i do enjoy this game but. the online sucks. the lobbys are always empty no one sees one other or really joins you unless there on ur freind list i just think the play station community sucks like no one even used the chat on the 3ds and wii an wii u versions ppl formed real groups and made friendships this one not so much
I honestly believe you don't even have the game. So much info you posted is just flat out wrong. There's no "cut scenes" you have to watch. There's a SINGLE cut scene for every new monster in the game. The second you find that monster and the cut scene finishes, you can play. If you fail, you don't need to wait next time. This ONLY applies to "assigned" missions. Every other aspect of the game doesn't require you to watch anything. Not being able to watch a cut scene with a friend sucks, sure. But unpolished? What bugs have you encountered? Secondly, every time you break a part off a monster it pops up on the right awarding you research points and on the left of the screen shows nearby items. Nearly every single attack and roar has a build up animation that can range from a few seconds, to 5 seconds. Once you learn them, it's extremely easy to avoid. You sound like most people who never played MH, or reached Anjanath (first decent monster with a bit of a challenge early on) and act like the game is broken because you can't hack and slash your way through. A lot of these monster has existed for over 10 years, nothing is broken or "stupid", you're just too lazy to take a step back and learn. That or you don't own the game.
Well, Monster Hunter World isn’t perfect, but it nailed everything right. The thing is that, the game is just pure fun and you have full control in playing field. I met a lot of Japanese players and my god they have been very helpful. This is my first time in Monster Hunter series. I have playing this game non stop.
Wow alot of the things you said were either nitpicks or exaggerations that the game does not deserve.
It wasn't a cliche "get good" reply. I would have literally typed "gitgud" and that is it. Instead I tackled the issues you complained about.
Ok, well me and my 4 friends played it and agreed with the issues we had, you guys disagree, so that is fine.
Excellent. Steam version later this year to wrap the hunting goodness.
that's what I'm waiting for :)
oh I'm holding off buying this until the steam version arrives, and I know at least >10 of my steam friends also doing the same so yeah, it's sure to increase few couple millions once steam version arrives.
Holy shit did Monster Hunter: World just sell way faster than Final Fantasy XV?
Great news tbh, curcial timing for Capcom as well, hope this encourages the executives there to take more risks.
Or to just put out quality products again.
It won't sell well on a console they said 😏
just the nintendo fans.
It won’t run well either 😭
How many brought it just for Horizon zero Dawn content i wonder. I know i did.
To be honest I don’t think that many bought it just for the horizon content.
I'm a Sony fanboy, loved horizon, and I never attempted or care about the gear. I bought it for the game, like millions did apparently.
I very much doubt you never attempted the horizon gear, as that gear has very high stats. And the whole point of monster hunter world is the gear.
"I very much doubt you never attempted the horizon gear, as that gear has very high stats." Horizon gear is mid tier at best.
So is the game.
Nope. It's probably the same class as the Rarity 8, if not better. If you fully upgrade the gear using enhancement.
If the Horizon gear was great I would run it frequently, but I have mixed sets far greater than the Horizon gear could ever be. I am a bow user too. If you run bow and want something strong, check out these sets. https://imgur.com/a/LYnaj#m...
I bought it because it was a Monster Hunter game. The Horizon gear is secondary.
Back where you belong, on consoles, legendary fun!!
Well deserved its a great game !finally on proper consoles good gameplay n yes!
sept the online is trash which was a let down to me
Yh the online portion is abit I'd but that's the only con atm other then that its a great game
I hope Capcom learned from this and will not exclude Playstation with future MH games.
More like Sony learned not to underestimate Monster hunter, althought Capcom should have been smarter and allow other MH games other than 3 to come back to console
That is Capcom's property so they could have dev it for whichever system they saw fit for it, what did Sony have to do with it if Capcom do didn't want it so. Congrats to Capcom on the sales.
Sony never underestimated the franchise, Capcom just wanted them to fund the game for them and Sony declined so Capcom ran off to another system like a little kid getting mad at daddy so they run to mommy instead. After seeing the install base of the PS4 and the XB1 they decided "Maybe being 3rd party with this just for Nintendo isn't the way to go. That and we're dying for money right now."
Congrats to Capcom, it is truly well deserved. This is the most accessible and most fun MH game I've ever played.
The word of mouth is really strong for this game, I expect it to sell several million more.
Better than BF2 for sure now
CONGRATS!! i think that makes it the best selling Capcom game ever (if we don't include remasters in the games sales), very good... when the pc ver releases they can probably grab a million more and we didn't have any discount at all yet! 10 million here we go!! it is also currently the best selling non final fantasy third party japanese game right now and we are still only one month into it's release.
Absolutely delighted to read this! Hopefully the success of MHW will lead to a trend of many more Japanese titles making the trip across the water to gamers in the west :)
MH held back by weak hardware for a really long time. Glad it's finally been given the chance to shine on non nintendo consoles and pc.
Makes you think where the series would be if they made ps3/xbox titles instead of reusing and lightly updating the ps2 engine for years.
Well deserved.. But please use that money to create a real endgame. Grinding for 1 random jewel that you may never get is not End Game.
You haven't played a lot of games with grindy endgame. It's often par for the course. I understand what you're saying, but that's the territory. Maybe they can break from tradition, but besides adding more monsters and missions, not sure what they can do.
Played tons of them actually. Diablo 3 does it right, copy that formula. Seasons and leaderboards.
Who cares? I'd just enjoy the journey 😊
I do hope Monster Hunter XX gets localised for the switch. I wouldn't mind playing it.
Look at that EA! Single player game if done right sells in the millions. What was that you said EA? No one wants to play single player games anymore? 7.5 million people just proved you wrong.
@AnubisG "Look at that EA! Single player game if done right sells in the millions. What was that you said EA? No one wants to play single player games anymore? 7.5 million people just proved you wrong." It's a multiplayer game.
Unless you play it as a single player game
@gleepot "Unless you play it as a single player game" So by that rationale you would define COD as a single player game and not multiplayer? A singleplayer game as I understand it is a game that features no multiplayer component. If a game has any kind of capability for multiple players then by definition it is a multiplayer game.
u can barly play online lol
this is def. NOt just a singleplayer game, certainly not since it's mainly being pitched as a co-op experience.
that’s why i bought it. to Play it co-op
"this is def. NOt just a singleplayer game, certainly not since it's mainly being pitched as a co-op experience." This ^^
i bought it for the co-op element. So would that make it 7,499,999 people then?
Well, you can play solo. And I find play playing Solo is more comfortable, not because a friend. It’s because the difficulty is easier to handle when in solo. And Here another thing, you have full control in playing field.
Guys, you all know well that co-op is not the kind of multiplayer EA has in mind. What EA has in mind is competitive 6-whatever number multiplayer games where they can sell you lootboxes so you can get an edge on your competition. MHW can be easily considered as a single player games. That is how I play it. I don't want anyone mocking up my gameplay. It has a story, a beginning and an end. What EA has in mind is one round after another in capture the flag or deathmatch or something similar. Probably battle royal modes in the future. EA would have canceled MHW if it was developed by one of their studios because they would have not seen how that will make them money with MTs. So let's not nitpick, you all know what I meant.
Does Destiny have a story, a beginning, and end and can be played completely in single player? I understand what you're saying, but what you're saying is wrong. You may have bought the game for single-player, but a lot of people bought it for the multiplayer.
@NotoriousWhiz, Clearly, you don't understand what I'm saying.
