I've been wanting to get this game but i've never played a monster hunter game so i was wondering can i play online with a normal wifi connection? And if not is it possible to just play offline without any kind of connection?
To play this online you would need Ad-Hoc Party (a PS3 App thing) which requires the PS3 to use wired connection. There are other ways to play online such as X-Link Kai, but I don't know how they work. You can play this entire game offline if you want, but you'll probably be playing alone. Unless you can find a friend nearby who plays it. Then you can use Ad Hoc to play. Be warned though, as Ad Hoc has extremely short range (you might already know this so ignore this if you do). I would recommend Ad-Hoc Party if you have a PS3.
That's about all I know. Let me know if you need me to explain something better. Hopefully someone who knows more will answer you on here too.
