Who would ever think beating hell out of ugly beasts could be so fun? Monster Hunter Tri has been out for over a week now (9 days) and let me tell you... it is so addictive. There is over 1000 different armour pieces and weapons to be forged or bought, 30 monsters to gather information on and defeat in various quests or just by roaming the Moga woods. There's a farm a fishing fleet, a trade ship called the Argosy, hundreds of different items to collect and even a little ally that travels with you called Cha-Cha!
This game is epic and today i had my first taste of proper, hardcore, online 4-player, team monster hunter quests. I even added to people to my friend roster so that i can meet up with them again and kill more monsters together. Monster Hunter Tri is compatible with Wii Speak which, unfortunatley, I don't have.
Incase you don't already know, Wii Speak allows you to talk with you friends online, meaning you can shout out orders and not have to type it all in and send a message to all your comrades.
It is awesome and I highly recommend it!
