I'm a huge Monster Hunter fan, though I wasn't always. At first the concept of the game struck me as, well, stupid.
I'd learned about the game from my, now, fiance back when we were only dating. We'd recently moved in together due to some troubles in my home and I'd seen him playing. For whatever reason, the game rubbed me the wrong way.
He and I lived together a while longer and, finally, I just said what the hay and desided to try the game out for myself.
Discovering that I did, in fact, enjoy the game I set out to master one of the harder weapons in the game, refusing to start with any other weapons that were easier to learn and master.
Something about it just fascinated me, and I've used it since.
In the games that I could, anyway.
I've dabbled in nearly every Monster Hunter - except for the spin offs and the first one.
I've watched my fiance play the first one, and I can't fathom how the game ever got anywhere.
I've played between 2 and 300 hours of the following, depending on which one we're talking about: Monster Hunter Freedom, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, Monster Hunter Tri, and Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate.
(I didn't play them in that order, of course.)
I'm eager for Monster Hunter 4, and am hoping with all my might that it's released in the U.S. I can't wait to try out the new axe.
I do, of course, do other things with myself than just play Monster Hunter. I draw, read, and write. I do a few other things as well, but I lead a very uninteresting life.
I've battled so many Deviljhos that the monster no longer phases me, and I'm excited to finally be far enough to be considered G-Rank in a game! (I haven't played that far in Freedom Unite.)
Here's to hoping to find some friends here!
Eventually my fiance and I will have a Wii U to play Tri Ultimate online, but that's a fair ways away. (Probably a couple years...)
Money is tight.
