So...that Behemoth. That is one bad ass monster :D Kicks the crap out of me everytime. ::shrug: 

Anyway, after using the Insect Glaive for my now almost 50 hours of playtime I want to switch to something else. Either Dual Blades or Heavy Bowgun. Haven't quite decided, yet.

My guild card on Monster Hunter Generations reads "Dual Blades for Life" so you know what I'm going to recommend... ;)

...the Heavy Bowgun of course! :grin:

I'm actually heavily in favour of giving the Heavy Bowgun a chance. The Insect Glaive was a pretty cool starting weapon for me, but I've had my close quarters fix and now I'm ready to fight from a distance :D

@drahkon my favourite weapon is the Charge Blade, it’s such a technical weapon. Once you get used to hitting guard points you can really dominate monsters and feel godly doing so... can’t recommend it enough!

I don't recall asking you, though. :p Just kidding.

Charge Blade was the weapon I used during my first 2 hours. It was quite possibly the worst choice because I was overwhelmed :D Might get back to that weapon at some point, though. 

Right now the Heavy Bowgun is growing on me. I was a little confused with the fact that you can't deal a lot of damage from a distance, but then I realized: With the way the battle system works, being able to deal full damage from far away would be OP. It's kind of obvious, really :D 
Love the different choices in ammo you get. 

Playing with the Heavy Bowgun changes battles completely. It was quite surprising. I guess most weapons play very differently from each other?

Anyway, I'm farming Lunastra to craft the weapon variant I want. I don't really understand the Heavy Bowgun's stats and what synergises with it, but that's the beauty of this game: It's awesome to try and find out :peace:

You guys could've told me that this game is hella addictive and awesome :p 

Just unlocked Augmentations. Why not let me grind more to upgrade my gear even more :D

Wow... that's one Monster Hunter crossover I didn't think we'd see happen. :D

Obviously doesn't work as well as Geralt from The Witcher but... I'll take it! :peace:

Haven't been playing MHW that much in the past week (haven't played much at all, to be honest) but whenever I log on and go on a hunt it's a blast. :) There aren't many games that are still this much fun even though you're pretty much doing the same thing over and over again :D 

I've started fighting with Dual Blades and goodness me, they are fun. Full on offensive-mode :peace:

Any time you might feel it start getting a bit old just change weapon and it brings a new freshness to it.

Next time you feel that give the Bow a go.

Just augmented my Dual Blades so I get a little bit of life steal. It's not much but it can certainly reduce the amounts of potions I drink :D

Incredible. Here's hoping Capcom will never ever go back to handhelds with Monster Hunter. I always thought the series was held back by the technical limitations of weaker devices, which was one of the biggest reasons I couldn't get into the series in the past.

I put a stupid amount of time on this over the Christmas period and I fell in love with the game again. The new expansion is absolutely fantastic and I was lucky enough to get to play the timed Safi'jiiva fight, which was amazing. I look forward to the return of that fight. 

The Guiding Lands area is such a cool addition to the game. It takes all of the previous hunting zones and mashes them into its own large map. It essentially becomes a bit of a Monster Hunter open world at this point, with you being able to run around hunting beasts from every region but without having to return to the hub. Players can come and go as they please ( as long as the host is firing the SOS ) and you can earn points in order to summon a monster that you may want to hunt. The other weekend I spent ages in this mode in the same session with a bunch of randomers and had a cracking time. 

The Clutch Claw is absolutely fantastic and really changes how you hunt the monsters. You use it by grappling to the monster and if you have something in your slinger, and the beastie isn't in rage mode, you can fire a shot off at it's head and send it charging to a wall, knocking it out and getting a bunch of free shots on it. You can also weaken monster parts by grappling and attacking them. This new system really does bring another dimension to the fights and makes you look for opening in order to trying and get the grapple.

It's a shame nobody seems to be playing this. I think this is the first MH game since the PSP games where I have played through it on my own. Still, the SOS system makes it very easy to hook up with random players and it's always easy to get a few hunts in, whatever the time of day. I finished the story mode but I continue to play the game and I think I will be doing so for a long time.
