I've only been playing MHW for a few days and I have to say, I love this game. Just so much of it is a never ending source of enjoyment for me. Some days I go out and hunt monsters that can kill me with a sneeze, other days I fish, and yet some other days I sneak around looking for cool bugs and small critters. Gathering new food for the chefs, slowly building new gear, learning about the monsters so my hunts go smother…damn just so much fun. Now I'll be the first to admit, I'm not skilled at games and MHW kicks my ass sometimes, in fact my first 'wall' so to speak was with Tobi Kadachi mostly over how damn fast that fucker was. He kicked my ass all over the forest the first time we clashed and was in fact the first time I had failed a quest in this game.
Now I've (tried) to play the Souls games and I was warned that this game was very Souls…but that's not the case. The Souls games made me so frustrated that I just gave up. My reaction when I lost to Tobi Kadachi was “Oh it's ON NOW zap face.” Que a montage of me fighting some of the faster monsters to improve my reflexes, hunting every Barroth I could find for it's gear, getting a better handle on flash pods, and unlocking more info on the beast itself. In the first fight I spend a lot of time running and healing. In the rematch, that I showed up for by striding into the forest in full Barroth plate with a new Aqua Arrow across my back, I hit that snake fox thing with so many Dragon Piercers that I'm shocked there was anything left to carve…also I could rant for a while on how much I love Dragon Piercer but moving on.
I guess my main point is that even losing doesn't deter me, in fact it only seems to strengthen my resolve…like I'm the protag of anime or something. Odd imagery aside I think that one of the reasons that I love this game is that…I know I can stop if I hit my limit. What I mean is I know, vaguely, that the end game is some super hard monsters who's favorite food is your face and…I don't have to do them. If my best is not enough for that kind of play I can stick to the more normal beasts and still have a great time. That's part of why I love it so much, it's oddly relaxing when, even that I vaguely know there is some level 50 hell beast from the pit that shoots lightning from it's ass or something like that, I don't have to fight that if I don't want, it's just me and my bow vs this whatever I want to shoot in the face…and if I get to end game I find I want to really to go toe to toe with the really nasty things…well I'm not alone!
That's the last thing I want to touch on, the community. Both the hunters I've run into randomly and you all here are, for the most part, outstanding people that really help us fledgling hunters find our footing and I just wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you everyone. May luck and the RNG favor us all.
