Hey, Looking for new games to play and had a friend borrow me a copy of MHTri for Wii over the weekend. Game mechanics felt really weird to me, the camera panning seemed very fast and I just had no idea where to begin with. Looked up some guides and tried to get the basics down, but I just don't "get it". How/why is this series so popular in Japan? It looks amazing and from what I understand, after the learning curve it should be enjoyable for hours upon hours of gameplay. So what am I missing? Since I have a Wii U, the game I'd be looking at is MH3U. I'm 100% positive the GamePad will be a better controller than the Classic Controller and there's also the potential for online play on the Wii U version now that Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is shutting down. So while I may borrow my friend's MHTri a few times more to get used to the overall feeling of the game, I'll eventually hunt down a copy of MH3U (bad pun, I know). Right now it's not cheap though, everywhere I've searched for a PAL copy it's always 50-60 euros (even used). What does it take to get into a game like Monster Hunter? This would be my very first Monster Hunter, but I've played many similar games. The game idea is fascinating and from the videos I've seen, the battles are long and epic! I'd love to play on that level, but the learning curve is really slowing me down. Any help is appreciated!
