    I've tried to understand the hype on this, and for the life of me i just can't. Talk about bullet sponge games, there's literally a class in this game that shoots water bullets at the monsters that they 'absorb' (takes very minimal damage overall) in fights that go on for what feels like an eternity. To each their own i guess, but this game most certainly was not meant for me












    It is much like the Souls bosses. It is a boss rush souls game essentially. Most souls games have bosses that last 15 minutes or so (The usual length of boss fights in MH). Bullet spongey implies that enemies just have more health for the sake of having more health, but that is not how MH works. Monster hunter bosses have mechanics tied to breakable pieces on there body, once you break these, the mechanics are lessened or removed entirely. Most bosses past early game have some pretty complex mechanics that you have to learn. I think calling them HP sponges is a bit disingenuous, as that would imply every boss is tank and spank. If you like souls games you are pretty much going to almost certainly like MH. People like the very sophisticated,varied, gameplay mechanics (each weapon is basically a different game) as well as the challenge. That is the main reason people enjoy it.









    You can try to explain it, and I get what you're attempting to point out, but it just doesn't 'feel' that way to me. This feels nothing like a DS game, and the fights in MH feel extremely uneventful. If that's what bullet spongey seems to imply to you, then that is what it is I guess, but that's not how I'd define bullet spongey. When a mob is absorbing bullet after bullet after bullet after (you get it ...) for a half hour, that's just ridiculous. Maybe I've just been around and seen too much to appreciate MH, but breaking off pieces of the mob to expose vulnerabilities has been around for ages and offers nothing new, and I don't find the mechanics to be 'complex'. Maybe you do, and more power to you. As I said, to each their own ...






    You can't feel what something is like until you play it. That is like saying you think a movie is the worst movie ever after having never seen it. Also, acting all high and mighty with a dismissive "I have seen it all so I am above that" just because you have a strong opinion on a thing a ton of people enjoy that other people don't share does not make your opinion any more valuable.


    I have played it ... and talk about dismissive attitudes, wowsers. Go to bed, you're drunk



    Considering how uninformed your posts have been, you clearly have not.
    Just gonna leave this right here:
    just because you have a strong opinion on a thing a ton of people enjoy that other people don't share does not make your opinion any more valuable

    You're the one that decided to white knight the game and tell me how wrong I was for not liking the game. I tried to be open to the fact that others like it, while providing MY OWN take on it:
    "To each their own i guess, but this game most certainly was not meant for me"

    But I guess if everyone doesn't love the game, that's not good enough for you. You have to tell everyone how wrong they are

    I'm done w/ you. Your opinion no longer has value to me. Good day
    I only told you why people play the game, as it was pretty clear you had not. Then you continued to pretend like watching a stream on twitch of a game is the same thing as playing it and that your opinion was more valuable then others because you "have been around for ages and it offers nothing new". This is why I had to put you, someone who has not played the game, in your place. 
    i said good day
    Ok Fez.

    Considering how uninformed your posts have been, you clearly have not. Yes, I absolutely will dismiss opinions from people who have not played the game, as that is not a valid opinion. That is what any reasonable human being would do. Dismissing a whole game as "beneath you" is dismissing people based on their valid opinions.
    Feels similar to the launch of Mass Effect: A.  So many experts that had long bullshit reviews on a game they literally didn't play, but saw some twitch video for a few mins so they now had a greater opinion on the game than someone who played for 100+hrs.

  • So, Where Are YOU on Net Neutrality?

    It doesn't look like you've quite figured it out yet so I'll give you a little heads up here, the internet is where your castrated shit pushed in leftist ideology goes to die, unless you're on facebook or twitter or some lame shit like that. Get used to it babygirl.
    Okay, so I guess you don't want to contribute anything worthwhile to the discussion.  Noted.
    I already won the thread. No idea what you're on about son.
    You've won nothing, and until you address the actual issue that's what's your opinions are worth: nothing.
    Oh this suddenly turned into 'I know you are but what am I' that's about as far as I figured a CNN slurp junkie cringe hole would be able to get into the discussion. Won the thread 1+ pages ago, deal with it swine.
    Like I said, nothing worthwhile to say so far.  But I'll keep reading.  You might surprise me.
    I know you'll keep reading because you're the kinda slut that needs to slither up next to a winner.
    Hey @TheScavenger .  This is what triggered looks like.  Just fyi.
