    I've always wanted to get into this series. The monsters are cool, the weapons are cool, and it just reeks of badassery. I've downloaded the 3DS and Wii U demo for the new one, and fighting the lagombi seemed fun. I guess for me it's like a snapper turtle.

    Looks cool, but hard to interact with.

    I've been playing the Monster Hunter franchise since it's first release on the PS2. Absolutely adore the series and it holds a special place in my library because it was the first game I went online with. Though I havent picked up the latest installment yet, I plan to in the near future . *checks date* WELP I get payed today, guess what I'm getting after work!?

    Just got a 3DS and the first game I purchased was Monster Hunter! It's my first time playing it and it's already pretty interesting for me. It's hard, but it's fun.

    Plus, a Qurupeco's beating me into the ground ... so, yeah. Not sure if I've done all the stuff I need to do before doing quests, but for the most part, I'm enjoying my experience thus far!

    Just wait until you fight the Royal Ludroth for the first time. It's a little weird fighting an opponent underwater, but it's SOOOO much fun!

    Looking at some walkthroughs, it looks like I've still got lots of stuff to do, but it's not half bad. Hopefully I'll be able to get some underwater combat soon!

    Favorite Monster Hunter monster?

    I've beaten MH3U (up to alatreon) and it was one of the best games of all time. Deviljho was easy in my opinion though, you just had to watch him and not be Leroy Jenkins.

    Not quite to the point where I can declare my favorite monster, but I rather like the Aptonoth and Epioth. Not necessarily for hunting, but just because of what they are. I find them kinda interesting and peaceful.

    A lot of the brute Wyverns look pretty cool to me. Especially Duramboros.

    all you fans know this song, ad i'm about to sen you on the emotional train ride once again.

    but we're not done yet. for every moment in this song, you can tie in your most cherished hunt's. and then at exactly 1:55 it hits you.

    all those accomplishments. getting new gear, the amazing sceery, the relaxation of going home and putting away your new materials, learning new tricks, YOUR FIRST KILLED KUT-KU?! saving pokke village from the terrible tigrex, killing the infamous rathalos, and going as far as taking down such behemoths as lao shan lung, and even white fatalis. it shows your progress as a hunter and far you came from the frustration that was monsters like yian kut-ku and the likes of such. it gives you that feeling of accomplishemtn like no other game can give.

    monster hunter isn't just a game, it's and experiance that will change the way you see non-linear gaming and the thrill of the hunt.

    LET THE HUNT NEVER END!

    Bump.

    Anyways, favorite weapon anyone? Mine has to be the long sword. Get a kick out of it.

    Those are also great, but I like the long sword's speed and power. It's a bit in between the GS and SnS. The lack of a block saddens me though.

    Yian Kut-Ku. It was always my favorite of the flying wyverns, there's something about it's funky ways and parrot looking features that I love.

    I feel the same way about the Qurupeco.
