  • Speed up the combat a bit and I’m sold, Capcom!

    • I actually enjoy the heavy feel of the combat. It makes me feel like every swing I make counts, and that any wrong move can be fatal. Besides, not being able to throw giant weapons around like feathers is more realistic and intense!

    • It’s not just the ginormous, honking swords that move slowly, I can forgive those for being slow. Heck, I was playing with the gimpy toothpick sword with an inch of actual blade and he still swung it around like it was a million pounds.

  • I love monster hunter. Only issue I had with tri though was how slowly my guy puts his weapon away; and since I move a snails pace while the weapon I’d like him to put the weapon away a bit faster. I don’t mind the slow pace of eating meat though since I’ll just leave the area to do that but I’d really like to have a slightly faster animation for putting the weapon away. 

  • What I like is that the viewpoint comes in closer at certain moments.  From what I remember about the Wii version, the camera stayed back pretty far in the village.

    I hope Wii data can be transferred across to Wii U; I only JUST got into Tri and it would be annoying having to start all over again. And that guy from France I was hunting with last week (HR 224) probably wouldn’t be happy either, haha.

  • Am I the only one totally underwhelmed by how this looks?
