New trailer! Looks pretty sweet. ;)

donkeybeatz
Yea I saw that trailer earlier today. Looks solid. Now to see how it holds up online on the Wiizer.
Vitamin D
DAMN that trailer was sexy. I don't think Capcom's said anything about localizing it though. =/ I really hope they do. guitarist.gif

Oh shit, good look! So it's unofficially confirmed, good enough for me haha.
Vitamin D
Aaaaand several months later, the game is out TOMORROW! Kaz mentioned it, so I know he's in, who else is getting the game? I'm crazy excited for this game, and I can't wait to dive in to the franchise again. IT'S TIME TO SLAY THE RATHALOS.
donkeybeatz
Totally, bro. I need to get my classic controller back from my friend but I'll be ready tomorrow.
Alisha
i preordered it a while ago been rocking the demo lately.
Kazicht
Just picked up the CCPRO Bundle and gonna be on tonight. HC82 is getting the game also, and Adiamas (if you guys remember him). Looking forward to hooking up with AT again for some hunting!
Crushinator
BRO clan is invading monster hunter. Lets get some meat and then drink some beers.
donkeybeatz
Nice. I think we have enough for 2 full teams if Wiryu can make it. Everyone should meet up on Skype.
Kazicht
Didn't get a chance to play much since I got stuck at work late, but I did finish the tutorial missions. I really like the new weapon attacks they added, especially for Great Sword (always been a GS fan). I'm looking forward to trying out the new Switch Axe too. Hopefully I'll get myself some decent armor and upgrades then head online asap.
donkeybeatz
Yeah, this game is pretty badass. Played a long session with D last night. Some quick notes:
  • We noticed the monsters really come after you if you're using an item. I haven't noticed this before but its more apparent here than in the first game. Needless to say, one of the most intense moments in battle were when we were trying to use a potion only to have a monster come and body blow you, taking off a huge chunk of your health.
  • UNDERWATER battles! I've seen pictures and video clips but that didn't prepare us on how freaking awesome it was actually playing it. Swimming is a bit awkward with both control options (using the camera or using the triggers). I don't have the pro controller so its even more awkward to play.
  • Harvest/Mining points are random now and they disappear when you harvested/mined everything.
  • Graphics are pretty damn good. Lighting is done really well. The environment graphics are done extremely well. One area reminded me of the seaside areas in PSO.
  • Online play is pretty smooth.
  • Online communication is not. Chatting is pretty standard but you only have a certain amount of characters you can type. Which isn't a big deal since we've dealt with PSO but the amount of characters you can type here is way more limited than PSO. I think you can only type one line at a time.
  • Sending friend requests is a bit confusing also. As far as I know, you have to send them a message AND attach a friend request to it.
  • There are NO friend codes to deal with. You're given a unique ID when you first jump online. It's separate from your screen name so no worries.
  • Despite all that, I think its one of the most fleshed out online systems on the Wii. Way better than Smash Bros.
  • Oh yeah, you can send off boats to fish for you and you can get Felyne's to farm and grow herbs and mushrooms for you.
I'm loving the game so far and I can't wait to start fighting the big wyverns.

I just bought a Wii.

In the words of crushinator.

Fuck the Wii.
Scan_Man
I hear this game is great. But, I'm going skip this one because I want to pick 3D Dot Game Heroes in a couple weeks.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the Wii anymore. However, the reason you own one is to play these exclusive games like this. You also have to give props to Nintendo for their game schedule this year. Around this time of year there is usually a big game drought on consoles. But on Wii you have Monster Hunter this month, Super Mario Galaxy 2 next month. Then in June you have Metroid, Sin & Punishment 2, and Arc Rising Fantasia in June. If you are a Wii owner you have to be excited right now. I know I'm going to be playing mostly Wii this summer.

Okay, I'm ready to start beasting on this game with you doods. After donkey gave me some brotips on how to make my wii games stop looking like shit, I've been really getting into it. I'm now on 3 star missions offline. About to hunt my first Qurupeco, totally loving underwater combat, got a full set of Jaggi gear, and a whole gang of Mats. Mega Nutrients, Mega Potions, Well done steak, Ancient potions. What's the designated AT server?
donkeybeatz
There's no designated server but I always choose Rookie > Fresh 1 > City Gate 40.
I usually make a game in City 35 & 36 if I'm teaming up with the others.

I won't be able to play this weekend since I'm going out of town so that should give you enough time to get up to speed. Also, this gives me a break from fighting Barroth all the time beigelaugh.gif
AC9breaker
Okay, I finally hit rank 4 on offline quests and just started playing online. My character name: Break ID:R1ZY2X Add me doods!

Gobul is a bitch. My play times are pretty erratic but you can usually expect to spot me online 1-4 AM EST.
Scan_Man
I think I'm getting more and more interested in this game the more videos I watch. I hear the online is really good. And the Black Classic Controller Pro is sexy.

Crushinator

I think online is good only if you have a USB Wired lan adaptor. I've gotten disconnected alot.

LOL! Seriously. If I get this game I'm just plugging in my USB keyboard. Not a fan of random voice chat with others. Twelve year olds dude.
donkeybeatz
My connection has been mostly fine through wifi. I've gotten disconnected at times but its not frequent enough to say its bad.
At least lag isn't as bad as Smash Bros. Brawl.
Wiryu
I'm lovin it. Decked out in Rathalos gear at the moment. I only wish I had more free time to join you dudes! I should have taken a week off. /le sigh
HC82
My internet was down for like a whole month. I've had this game for like 3+ weeks already, wearing caedeus gear now. My HR rank is garbage though, since I just logged on yesterday for the first time.
donkeybeatz
This game is awesome. That is all.
Crushinator
AT podcast approved game. Game of the month.
AC9breaker
What the dude, crush got the game? :O

On an unrelated note, I got Bioshock from gamefly a couple of days ago. Pretty awesome so far.
Wiryu
Why doesn't anyone invite me with my l33t skills to hunts anymore? :/

Because we have all the Thunderbugs we need to make shock traps now.
Wiryu
Haha, you son of a bitch!

Some protips I got from the Capcom unity boards.
