My lovely boyfriend bought Monster Hunter World: Iceborne for both him and myself. Apparently the Iceborne DLC is exciting, which means we have to play it. I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before, but the controls feel like Dark Souls but smoother. Playing on mouse and keyboard is proving to be quite fun though, I was worried I would need a controller. We both booted up the game at the same time, and I think that was the best idea.
It took me way too long to get through character creation. I believe the words I used were “I play Sims, so I have to play with this,” which bought me enough time to not see the Palico companion right away. All I hear is “you’re going to love the next part,” and BOOM! CAT! I freaking love the little kitty friend idea! As you can tell, my priorities are perfectly in order.
The missions are straight forward; find the monster, kill the monster. Apparently there’s an awesome story I could pay attention to, but I don’t think I will. Designs for everything are just jaw dropping. After playing with the graphics for a good hour, I finally got to where the game is supposed to be visually.
We’ve only fought the first few monsters, and I picked the bow. I remember my brother had really good luck with the bow when the game first came out. I’m actually kind of upset I waited so long to pick this game up, it’s super fun! I haven’t found any big monsters yet, which is probably a good thing honestly, but I’ll get there soon. The hunts themselves are time limited a lot of the time to an hour, which makes it a great game to pick up, kick some ass, and go back to whatever I was doing.
There’s a wicked snowfall today, so I think I’ll do another hunt or two. I found an armour set for my Palico that I need for aesthetic purposes. He looks like he’s wearing a full winter parka and stuff! I love him so much!!!
Anyway, I’m beyond late today. Sorry for that, but thanks for stopping by! Be safe and stay warm out there!
