I was wondering if people would want to talk with me with this one and also I say Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is not a bad game but I find it hard to play at times.
When I say the game is hard to play I'm talking about like motivation not that the game is too difficult- not at all, it's more about like when I start the game up I want to feel motivated.

When I start a game up and I feel it's kind of hard to feel motivated to play the game because the game starts you out like walking really slow and some Marketplace or something but even then like the games Graphics are kind of blurry it's just seems like a mesh and I don't feel like I'm at a place I would rather be, its kinda unpleasing.

Not only that but like the thing is like this game has an intro it's like "all the cool stuff you can do!" but when you start the game there's always that feeling of I can't do those things at all until I have power leveled for like... how many hours and how many days and weeks until I can actually get to that point I think it's kind of discouraging.

I hate that the game is on 3DS or new 3DS- I have the new 3DS standard size for Western release, and I always feel like the games Graphics in a little bit like wounded by the idea that the 3DS or new 3DS doesn't have the exact kind of Graphics as the third game or third ultimate on the Wii U because the Wii U have the graphics works like everything was clear and it's like the game's camera points to places and areas and stuff even when walking around towns and stuff where it's like you're seeing a clear image of appreciation of a fantasy-old-as-f*ck culture, it's super cool.

However the game on 3DS tries to do kinda the same thing but it just looks like a mesh and it's hard to appreciate it at all.

Also I'm not saying good-looking games cannot be made on the new 3DS but I'm saying like they're trying to do this the same exact art style on the console game onto the portable handheld Nintendo console and it doesn't look the same.

Also I feel like this game is in need of competent and a comfortable controller which I feel like the New 3DS isn't 100% great controller and I'm not saying it's bad but there's a couple things about it need to be said.

I don't feel like going into deep detail about how good of a controller the new 3DS is but I will say for a game that requires you to do multiple button pressing and operations at once while trying to aim a camera it's kind of how do you say... not comfortable.

Also the C stick isn't the greatest nor is it the worst but it still feels like it could be so much more if this game was on a console.

Also on the same subject on why this game is on the 3DS it looks as if Capcom is wanting to avoid spending any money or funding on a next-gen game because the original Monster Hunter 3 Tri was going to be on the PS3 as a next-gen game at the time but then I saw the "Did you know gaming" and they said they were attracted by the Wii's features and also they didn't want to spend money on a next-gen game.

Also to back up this argument that Capcom is putting their MH games on 3DS is because also the new Hyrule Warriors Legends game is being put on 3DS and if you kind of think about it why on Earth would they put a game that's kind of about the hardware having a bunch of units on the screen and it putting on a portable handheld that's not going to do the same thing but the idea might be that more people are going to have a 3DS then the current Nintendo console.

But back to the subject about the game itself as I find it discouraging to try and play the game because I don't desire to power level like crazy and kill the same thing over and over again to get a piece of armor.
Like I want my fun to be about playing the game, fighting giant dragons and stuff and having a good time doing it not- not being able to get to that point because I'm not specific rank or don't have the right kind of Weaponry or Armour or something.

Like it makes sense it's just some kind of like progression of greater things to do in the game but I feel like they prolonging the game to the point I almost want to turn off the game everytime I play it.

Also been trying to get myself to play this game a lot more lately because I really like almost everything about the MH game series but the problem is that it was a decision that this game was put on a handheld rather than a console that makes the game vastly more comfortable to play also to look at with sharper and clearer graphics, and also the grinding.

Distilling that all down, Monster Hunter appears to have always been about the grind, but you can just... buy... equipment that's more or less good enough to get you through. I've been playing it on an older 3DSXL, and my biggest problem has been the camera. I just don't have the forty-eight finger joints of the serious Monster Hunter player.
It does need to be on a console, even beyond the Wii U.

One half-assed response, but yes.

You say the graphics are blurry, but they're not really. They're mostly just small, because of the 3DS. Being on a console with whatever controller that would use would probably help.

I'm not really sure what you mean by 'awesome stuff in the intro'.

In some ways, your whole post is all over the place. You play a game where the game really is to go out and beat up monsters to get parts to make weapons to go out to beat up monsters to get parts to get better weapons and armor, yet you don't want it to be a grind? The grind is the game. I am told it gets more entertaining if you play with other people, but they expect you to have already ingested the basic concept of going out and beating up monsters to get items to make yourself stronger. You don't level so much in Monster Hunter as constantly try to improve your equipment at The Man.

So while I do want to talk about it, there isn't a lot of material there to work with.

Well first off I don't think I know anyone who has a 3DS and has this game like friend wise.

If I had like someone who hangs out with me daily and plays this game I'd play it a lot more.

I play it entirely alone, though less so lately because the camera kills my hands and makes it very difficult to aim the ranged weapons like Bow and Bowguns.
Setting that aside, it appears that you can in fact play multiplayer over the internet using wireless connectivity. So lack of local connections should not be a total stopping point.

Ah. Well. Perhaps with Monster Hunter Cross, when it finally floats across the waters. People seem to perceive MH4U as being somewhat old.

If thats the case why not start a room thats consistently visited by people on here
From there, we'll consistently hunt stuff, we could:
Hame
Restart and all use LR gear and travel through every online quest in guild hall
Do event quests
Test weapons together
Do arena quests
Quite frankly I've always wanted a consistent group to hunt with so if ya'll two wouldn't mind, why not get one started?
