    I sincerely hope this is a MH comic. Is there scrounging around on the ground for mushrooms in MH4 still?

    The "badass doing inconsequential side stuff" joke never gets old to me:

    Having just gotten into Monster Hunter via Freedom Unite I'm getting a kick out of this comic. I wish I'd gotten into the series a long time ago. I always seem to be fashionably late to the party.

    Yup and i believe its 3DS only. Just now online play and more monsters!
    This comic also cracked me up and then had to send it to people that I play MH with.

    Do you think if The Order 1886 had more unimportant sidequests and collectibles that it would have gotten a better score? Sometimes things in games arent realistic, but they add to the gameplay...

    God damn this is a fine comic. The third panel kills me every time I look at it.

  • TheCanManTheCanMan Registered User regular
    I have absolutely no point of reference for what this comic is about, but I still laughed at the last panel. Context doesn't matter, that just funny.

    It has that “Stick and Move, or absorb Catastrophic Damage” thing that people “like” from the Souls games


    I believe the technical term is, "touchemrealquickandgo"

    I like the finer artwork of PA comics like these and the CTS series. this one is doubly good as well-drawn and funny :)

    Monster Hunter holds a special place in my heart - it was one of the first games where when I started (with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, on the PSP), I was not just *bad*, but completely out of my depth. I had no idea what I was doing, and I could tell that getting somewhere that I could be effective would be a huge drain on my time and mental health.

    But the concept resonated with me enough that I didn't care - I wanted to hunt monsters and be totally rad in the process. After countless hours of fruitless lance charges, scrounging for mushrooms, and killing giant derpy chicken monsters (Kut-Ku, I'm looking at you), I became reasonably effective and never looked back.

    Now, Monster Hunter 4U has displaced Mother 3 as my favorite video game of all time, and I'm still what I would call "reasonably effective."

    I doubt it. It doesn't seem like the kind of game that lends itself to that stuff well. You don't see the intel files in Call of Duty being held up as a strong point of the campaign the way the random crap in GTA is.

    Basically, the game has to have exploration as a design feature in order to make people care about rewards for exploration. By the time you change The Order enough to allow exploration, let alone reward it, you'll probably already have solutions to a lot of its problems.

    Remove collectibles from games unless they do something relevant, for the love of GOD
