    Monster Hunter: Generations (3DS) | Celebrating over 10 years of monster hunting

    Not a whole lot of Monster Hunter fans out here, I think.

    But it was confirmed in last night's Nintendo Direct that Monster Hunter X will get a Western release as Monster Hunter: Generations. There's going to be some crossover Fire Emblem thingy too. So far it seems to be limited to there being Fire Emblem costumes/skins, e.g. Marth, in the game.

    The game is sort of an anniversary title for the franchise, so more of a spinoff rather than a mainline entry. It features multiple villages and monsters from all the previous games.

    I'm assuming Japan will get this game ported over to home console eventually, e.g. PS4.

    Monster Hunter is amongst the lamest of annual series.

    Worse than CoD easily. Not even trolling.

    I really dig MonHan. Have easily spent over 100 hours across the different games I own.

    I just don't see the appeal I guess. To me it's just not fun at all.

    Well, I guess it's really 'grind-y'. But I don't mind that because you're not grinding for experience points like in most JRPGs. In stead you get quick wins all the time by all the ingredients you collect. Which allow you to improve your gear. So every effort you put in there feels like it really paid off. If you're just "collecting" experience points that feels so pointless.

    I also really enjoy collecting full sets of armour. And there's the thrill of slaying those giant monsters.

    The fact that there are different play styles that you can try (since every weapon handles so differently) is a real asset too imo.

    I don't care for Diablo for the same reasons fwiw. I really would rather just play through a CoD campaign than play something like Diablo or Monhan though.

    Interesting to hear why you like it, even if I'll never play a Monhan game again.

    I tried Diablo II a couple of years back. Thought it looked like arse. And I hated it. MonHan is nothing like Diablo imo.
