New to this type of game and wants to start in the good way

#1Leo_BlakenPosted 10/31/2012 12:22:44 PM
Any tips? Which game should I start? I really liked from what I saw on the videos and I want a good RPG.

Is there some kind of good class to start?
Can I find some monster hunter games on PSN?
Thank you!.

The first thing that you should know is that this is one of those games where nobody can agree whether it is an RPG or not. There is no conventional leveling up system, it's all about getting better equipment and getting to the higher levels of quests.

Second, I assume that since you are posting on this board you plan on getting a Wii U (?). If that's the case, I would recommend that you wait for this game to come out in March, as it is generally considered by those who have imported to be the best MH game yet (if you have a 3DS, you could also get the 3DS version in March).

However, if you are not getting a Wii U (and don't have a 3DS or plan on getting one) or if you just really want to play it now, I would recommend Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on the PSP. You can get it off the PSN for either the PSP or the Vita.

There is also Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii if you want a game that has online multiplayer. Monster Hunter Tri is a much more polished experience than Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, but there is a lot less content. The main reason that I would not recommend Monster Hunter Tri is because this game (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate) has all the content from Tri plus more. Along with that, Capcom plans to shut down the online servers for Tri once they release Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (which, as I said, is in March).

Is there some kind of good class to start?

Your "class" is tied to the weapon type that you are using, and it can be changed at any time. Personally, I think that you should start with Sword and Shield. They are the most balanced weapon type when it comes to defense, offense, and mobility. The games have a steep learning curve, so having an easy-to-use weapon type is a good way to start out.

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.

If you're expecting an RPG, one important thing to know is this game is 99.9% centered around player skill. You never level up and the only way to increase your stats is by equipping better equipment. Skill is far more important than any stat though, and a seasoned veteran can fight the hardest monster with starting equipment and not die while a new player will get demolished by even the lesser beasts even with the best equipment in the game.

Only start with MHFU if you want your first experience with the series to be the worst control type. MHFU is great, but Tri would be a better starting place if you have access to a Wii.

Start with Tri, MHFU is bad, unless you consider a ton of monsters and items the only reason it's good.

this one would be a good start if you plan on buying it.

Wow I really appreciate the responses.

For the looks of it I will wait for the Wii U version, currently Im playing a demo on PSP (And loving it, I like the idea of grinding and getting better stuff)

Thanks!

But if.. you could give me another tips is there some kind of combination of long range-physical weapon-?

The closet thing to that weapon combo would be the hunting horn.
