I didn't know that[/quote] I didn't know that either. That's a MH3 only thing apparently. The PSP games do not do that, their ranking system is much different, it didn't have near the same ranks so you do not rank up in the middle of quests. You rank up after completeing a specific number of Guild Hall quests in each level. MHF and MHF2 have a Hunter Rank 6 level cap and Unite extended it up to 9.
Monster Hunter on PS2 had 20 Hunter Ranks.
Monster Hunter Frontier on PC has 999 Hunter Ranks.
Monster Hunter 3 for Wii copies Frontier, it has 999 ranks as well but new quests stop at around Rank 51 so every rank after that is for bragging rights. But don't worry, if any of you wish to get up to Hunter Rank 50 it's going to take you around 300-500 hours. :)[/quote]
No. Let me explain myself better.
You don't level up as in your level goes from 3 to 4. What I'm saying is that when you fight a monster and you play "properly" (whatever that means) your body starts glowing and there's a arrow up up next to your name, perhaps showing that your energy/power is going up.
After each one of those instances after the quest I levelled up[/quote]That still seems weird. The only a character glows that I know about is when you are actually powered up. The more sucessful attacks you make with swords, a red power bar increases and you can unleash more powerful attacks with that extra power.[/quote] Ok then you are right. I was just "powered up" and it just so happens that after each one of those quests my level went up.
Is anyone online now?
why don't you like the visuals? I think it looks nice but I think people's problem are not in regards to graphics but more related to the bland environments: The art directions is the real problem and could have been more "inspired/creative" - think the Metroid Prime World.
Again, this comes from me where art direction is more important than graphics.
The visuals? They aren't horrible. Like you said, they're a little bland. And I really hate dark environments, because they strain my eyes. Monster Hunter has a very large visual dynamic range between the well-lit outdoor areas and the so-dark-I-can't-see cave areas. It's, like, one of my biggest problems with modern gaming. Feeling like I'm going blind is not fun.
Also, like RE4, Tri isn't very sharp. The visuals seem kind of dithered and low-res and jaggi (har har), almost like they've been upscaled. I prefer sharp, simple stuff (Super Mario Galaxy) to complex, but smudgy and dithered stuff.
Art direction is important to me, but I don't like how the actual engine is prioritized. Still, like I said, The game is fun as hell, so, ultimately, I don't care.
I finished the Guts: It's what's for dinner quest, and I got my rear end handed to me once. I was gathering some Monster Guts from a fallen Epioth, and Lagiacrus showed up and zapped me before I could get away. I was at half health and had only leather armor, leather leggings, leather greaves and a leather belt.
I forged a Hunter's Vest after I successfully completed the quest, and I'm hoping to just play for fun tomorrow and mine some more materials to finish the set.
Yeah, this game is actually fairly amusing and well-localized, with the clever titles, and such. At first, I thought it was cheesy, like how the cats work meeeow and purrr into their words, but I'm into it, now. It's cute.
Good hunt Fabz.... That guy Majeco or whatever was cool too.... made me want to get a lance for my hunter...
Hammer is great..but it's a bit hard to control when you power up. Sometimes I end up pounding the hell out of my teammates instead of the monsters..
The keyboard I was after on Ebay on Sniped away from me.. someone was obviously waiting till the last minute and then bid over my maximum bid.. oh and I tried typing in "Crap" on the chat and it bleeped it out lol.
Where did you go that one quest? You dissapeared all of a sudden? Network issues? S
When i get home from class tonight I plan on hunting Barroth's for armor, so if anyone is on around 10EST then we can hunt. And if you are not a high enough HR to hunt barroth (level 5) then I will kill some great jaggias and Q-Bird (thats what i call it) with you!!
I don't want to steer your game, anyone, but DO NOT use the Super-Sized Dung until prompted. I found ONE early in the game (like, hour 1 or 2), used it for the first time about an hour of gameplay ago, and now someone is asking me for it. The risk was incredibly far above reward, and now I'm stuck without something I need. I usually keep at least one of EVERYTHING in games like this, and that is far from my character. I don't know why I did it, and now I'm totally peeved.
--Also, if someone happens to have extra, I'm listening. Again, I'm not usually like that, but "ARGH!!"
Mr. Mustache, i just got home, i will look through my massive storage box for it. I normally keep alot of shit in there....
Well, you're definitely looking for the right stuff, haha!!
--I thought I've made it clear on here, but I don't like getting things that I shouldn't have access to. Thats just my style of play. I know that some folks like to have everything they possibly can, handed to them early and fully powered up. I've already HAD the Super-Sized Dung so I dont' mind that as much, but I wouldn't want Barroth whatever (I don't even know what a Barroth is, mind you..) so I could make Barroth armor...knowwhatImean?
Thanks for the thought though, Scrawnton. I'm going out looking tonight. PM me if you find some so we don't keep hoggin' this board up with a Poop Mission.
--I'm glad everyone is enjoying it! Poor Abdooooo. He has no idea... :(
Just got into the game last night. My character name is Chadatog. I need to look up my code. Just trying to get through the first few quests until I give the online a try. Might be ready to meet up with you all Thursday through the weekend.
I believe the game designers made it so trading is encuraged but not every item can be traded. It depends on what the rarity level is. I think anything with a level 4 rare rating and above can not be traded.
And about the graphics...I'm only going by what I see in videos because I have not seen the actual game running on a Wii. The PSP game is sharp as hell. I too love sharpness and all the blurrness strains my eyes too. I'm going to need glasses I think.
Perhaps there's a setting on your TV that can sharpen everything up a bit?
