Gamefaqs is currently 164th most popular US website and 360th worldwide according to Alexa. Hardly a dead website.


Yet the forums are at 1/5 what they were 7-8 years ago and FAQ contributions have all but completely stopped. It's almost like all the constructive members of the website were ran off for some reason and only forum trolls and career s***posters remain.

What's the gameplay like? How does it compare to MH?

It's basically Monster Hunter completely stripped of all it's charm and has very little content.

You start a mission and have to find the monster on a big map. You gather ore while searching, and whack deer that are not hostile and die in one hit for... meat, I guess? There are no true small enemies on the maps, and only a few different items to collect. When you do find the monster, you shoot a flare into the air that other players need to visually see in the game world to know where you and the monster are. That's about the only cool and unique part of the game, but it's obviously not something that will make people want to play, nor is it something that will keep the game fresh.

I will say that the game does have great sound design and some pretty cool looking monsters, weapons, moves, etc. but after watching a few streams it's very easy to see that there is little to no depth, and the missions get extremely repetitive since all you're doing is basically running straight to the monster every time, besides picking up some ore and whacking deer along the way.

sure i could've phrased it better but a majority of gamefaq's traffic is probably for everything other than the forums. the activity of a gamefaqs forum doesn't have much to do with a game's activity.


This - nobody's coming on here for the forums, and everybody should know that. You wanna know where the traffic is? It's in the title: they're here for the Game FAQs, not the witty s***posting

Except for all the people that come here for the forums...?

I was interested in this game because i have a love for monster hunter. The way they are handling the beta put a bad taste in my mouth.
Theres a little place where the sun sleeps late. Pours himself a shot of tequila.
Its a little place called Pleasure Island. Thats where Id like to feel ya.
