MHW was the first one I put a lot of time into. I found it too uncomfortable to play on the 3DS, but saw lots of people talking about World so put Tri on my Wii and liked it enough to get the new one. I played GU a bit on switch, but I played world so much I felt like I needed a break before Rise came out. Actually almost didn’t buy it because, even though I really liked the new environment exploration in the demo, I didn’t really want to get another big time-sink game. But I got excited watching YT vids and did a pre-order on the 24th.
Picked it up this morning and I love it. The town’s really great, the insect glaive is not shite like the demo implied, and there are some new trinkets to find in hard-to reach parts of the map. Just doing single-player stuff at the moment. My favourite part of these games is actually the chill collection quests, and all the verticality in this one makes those kinda things extra interesting. Been playing insect glaive like I mostly did in World. I don’t really like the hunting horn changes, but every other weapon I’m familiarish with seems to be better than ever?
Thoughts are very muddled, sorry!
