Obligatory Monster Hunter character update

I haven’t been playing Monster Hunter like I used to but I think I’ve come pretty far off. I started with Monster Hunter Freedom 2 and reached up to HR 4 before Monster Hunter P2G (the japanese version of Unite) came out. Since there it they had different languages, I had to ask one of the good peeps at PinoyPSP for a conversion and imported my character to P2G.

A few months of playing later I got to HR 6. As luck had it I lost my PSP-2000 :(. Lucky for me, I had the habit of backing up my saved games so I only lost about a week’s worth of hunting. If I remember right, that week was me hunting HR6 Silver Rathalos’s and Golden Rathians for rubies (yes it was THAT frustrating) :D.

Six months later I was able to get a refurbed PSP-1000 and continued where I left off. After just a month (I got my PSP phat June 29 :D), I’m now:

Monster Hunter

The hardest part for me now is finding time to play. Work is currently a time sinkhole; same goes for the project (linked for sneak peek :D) I’m working on getting launched so I get about 2-3 hours playing time at most, all solo. On that note, I really miss the Monster Hunter Weekend as we used to call it. A number of circumstances simply killed it for us πŸ™

As of now, I’m just working on my equipment and the Guild Card (some of my achievements don’t seem to be showing up) so I spend most of my research time on Minegarde. You should too, since it’s one of the few Monster Hunter communities that’s active and provide quality discussions and content.

Personally, I love Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (or P2G, depends on your version. I’m sticking to the Japanese for the download quests) but I think I only have about a year to keep on playing it. No I haven’t grown out of Monster Hunter, it’s still pretty much one of my top games to play. The problem is the Monster Hunter Tri videos ruined it for me. πŸ˜€ I’ve spent so much time watching videos of actual gameplay that I’m already willing to shell out cash for the Japanese release and a Japanese Wii.

Plus there’s just about a few monsters I haven’t met/killed/captured so the excitement factor is a bit low now, especially since the Naruga Weapons (currently I have the GL, LS, DS, Lance and Hammer) that I’ve created make quick work of most quests in HR7-8. I’m still wary of going to HR9 quests except when farming for Divine Plates because I often die πŸ˜€

I thought of ending this entry with some tips but I’m running late for work πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading. If you guys (those in the Philippines at least, in Ayala specifically) need help with your quests, send me a PM. I’ll be glad to help you out πŸ˜€ If you’re just starting out, be sure to read Aaron’s beginner’s guide to Monster Hunter Freedom Unite it’s quite comprehensive and is sure to help you out on your hunting newbness. πŸ˜€

      Well good to see you’re back, if but for a while πŸ˜€
      I’m guessing your company blocked the word “Monster” for some reason, just like mine.
