Done from mhw, can't wait for God eater 3
Would not say I am done with MHW but I am looking forward to god eater 3.
Platinumed and nothing new beside rehash same monster but more hp and damage
As much as I liked it for being one of those online multiplayer games (Destiny, Division, Wildlands etc) and one being that held my interest the longest I did think I got burnt out pretty fast, wishing it would go back to being single player again with co-op features. I just think it took resources away from adding more things to the game. Not to mention with how long some monsters take to take down it's a shame you couldn't pause it even if you were offline playing by yourself.
The only monster that last long is behemoth extreme about 15 to 20min in average
OMG Karen nobody cares about your speedrunning...
Give us a dog instead of a cat?
It had my interest longer than any GaaS game like Destiny 2, Divison etc.
We need an expansion. New weapon types, zones, monsters, etc. I hope Capcom is planning something. The game sold like 10 mil, right? I really enjoy the game. Put in around 100 hours, but i have very little incentive to hop back in.
100 hours is Nothing. You want new weapon types, but i'm pretty sure you haven't play more than 2 ;)
Aka it lacks depth with it's new monsters.
I already said what they could do with an expansion, when this came out.
The RNG killed it for me. I was trying to get all the crowns and after 200 some hours I just threw in the towel. I love the game but the RNG is disgusting.
You did better than me. I think I did that one of the stupid events that's suppose to have a high chance of crowns about 50 times. There was one stubborn crown that just wouldn't pop. I was livid by the end.
There's still no G rank for one. Also, it would be very time consuming and expensive to animate/program, but the handheld series still has twice as many monsters/gear as World does. There's still tons of ways Capcom could improve the game if they decide to.
G Rank was never an expansion. It was always incorporated into an "Ultimate" version of the game over a year later. The handheld series also used the same models and with updated textures (if that) across multiple games over the course of YEARS. MHGU which launched last year in Japan (2 months ago for US/EU) had over 100 monsters because it was basically damn near every MH combined into one. Everything in World was created from the ground up, so it's going to take a lot more time considering the amount of detail that goes into a single monster. The game has only been out almost 9 months and we got 4 new monsters, tons of new gear from weapons and armor to layers armor along with QoL improvements and events. All of which has been completely free. The main problem is, so many companies cut so much content from the main product to sell it back to you within the first few months because they know the community will move on to other games. MHW is still going strong and providing free content and updates 9 months after launch. Have they ran out of ideas? Absolutely not, but I do feel these Arch Tempered Monsters are more so padding (possible testing for G Rank balancing) until the next big free update or an announcement leading up to G Rank.
I understand all that, but content distribution is different on current consoles than on 3DS. Huge DLC like that might not have been necessarily feasible. Also, those games were $40 compared to full price. Capcom could release another Ultimate version of MHW, but to not allow an upgrade via DLC as well would be foolish.
I think you misinterpreted what I meant with the 1 year ultimate edition. It was meant more so as a timeline. It took a year or so to basically add G Rank into an already existing game that's been balanced over the course of years. MHW introduces a lot of changes, so those needs to be balanced as well. Which is gonna take time. Basically if it takes a year for that on 3DS, expect the same amount of time needed if not more for MHW. I 100% think it will be in expansion form and not a new game, but don't count on that until early next year at best.
Oh yeah, I understand it takes time. I will pay for it whenever it releases, absolutely. The problem though, is with MHW it reached a more mainstream audience, who may not care about the game anymore if an expansion or newer version of the game releases, which would be terrible, because I assume the money invested in doing so would be far more than with the handheld versions. I'm guessing it must be a bit of a precarious situation for them.
