Short post tonight, friends. I have a cold/flu I’m battling that zaps me every time I try to play something. I did manage to play the three quests in Monster Hunter World Beta on the PS4.
Graev is really the big MH fanatic of the family, so I have to defer to him on all of the real technical details on things. I’m a novice having only played two previous versions, one of which I only dabbled and the other I played for maybe 30 hours. Something about MH on a 3DS screen is what kept me from playing more. I needed that bigger screen and controller to immerse myself more.
Monster Hunter World is awesome. It’s still very much Monster Hunter, but the presentation on PS4 is excellent. I think the controls are what make it for me more than anything else. The graphics are also really pretty, but something about having so much more control over my character while fighting a giant boss on a big screen felt right. I’ll have more to say when I think think straight and try more weapons.
If you have a PS4, even an original launch one like me, give it a shot! The beta is open until the morning of the 12th.
