Hello, and welcome to Discussion of the Week: Strategies!
Something very different this week. Perhaps slightly more controversial.
Sonic Bombs have interesting, if somewhat limited uses. Personally I only bring them to Cephadrome or Plesioth fights, to kick the irritating fish out of the sand/water, though they're also useful for breaking Daimyo's shield move, stunning Yian Kut-Ku, knocking Remobra out of the air and cancelling Qurupeco's songs.
The problem is that (Cephadrome/Plesioth aside) most of the time you'll do more damage just continuing to batter the monster with your weapon, rather than faffing around with sonics. Though I concede they're probably helpful for beginner hunters testing things out.
Plesioth, Gobul and Zamtrios can all …

I tried alot trying to defeat the dang Giggi and I finnally defeated the dang blood sucker after 49 minutes 32 seconds. I fought Baleful Giggi and dang, he was easier, but seemed to have a lot of health. I haven't killed it yet becuase a Deviljho appeared right at the Beginning of the quest. I got him down to limping in 35 minutes and had to get off. I soon realized that I played the game wrong. I upgrade my armor to full defense, but never upgrade my weapons. I also never use gems. Long sword and switch axe are probably my best at fighting with, and so is my pink rath bowgun, which realy helped me with Gigginox after my first defeat with my un upgraded Dios Katana. Its not just Giggi, but I feel like even for soloing mh3u G rank, I don't …Read more >

Hello, and welcome to Discussion of the Week: Jungles!
Now, we may have already done this one, but I searched and couldn't find it. So if we have done it, it was ages ago. Anyway...
The visibility. Dear God, the visibility.
It's actually a fairly interesting area, at least design wise; I like the crumbling ruins, the caves, the open clearing bit, the riversides. There's a great deal of variety going on. Unfortunately in some places the trees are so thick you can't see Nargacuga about to slam its tail on your head... and that's a problem.
...It's OK. Obviously, being from the fourth generation there's more vertical components, which is good, and there is a fair amount of variety going on in all the different areas. There's nothing that really mak…

In the trailer Black Diablos, Plum Diamyo Hermituar, and Hermituar have returned in mh4u.
In the trailer Dundroma town is an returning town.
Steve shares a relation with bats and birds.
Steve has the ability to fling spikes and can fling them at enemies.
Steve will migrate to different areas.
Many desert monsters are found else where in mh4u, unlike many monster hunter games.
Hermituars can now be found away from cool areas or areas with water in the desert, unlike mhfu.
There might be a new weapon, the poleaxe or pole arm either one, and may be only used by the town guards of Dundroma.
Steve might inflict a new status as in the trailer a hunter in zinogre armor was taking damage when trying to move after getting hit by the spikes, giving off a ef…

Greetings, and many great hellos!
It's been a while since we did a DotW focusing on none other than one of the best parts of Monster Hunter - of course, the music! And because Monster Hunter Frontier G has some of the best music in the franchise, I thought I'd make these particular pieces the subject of our weekly discussion.
NOTE: I won't be posting EVERY music piece on this blog, just the ones I think are relevant or just plain enjoyable. Also, thank you to everyone on YouTube who posted these videos for me to use.
A slightly calming theme that plays when you first encounter the deadly Shanthien. In this phase, Shanthien is mostly calm and attacks with minor land-based moves, so you don't really have much to worry about.
When the music picks…

First of all some of these are just kinda ideas that came in mind when drawing.
Phial Blade: A large hand half sword (Not to be confused with Ukanlos subspecies or Master cedeaus' blastedge) that can unleash devistating attacks by using certian phials. like the bow the weapon, it has its own elemental attacks and can use certian phials for special attacks. The phials can be bought or combined and there are 5 phials in which called, power phial, sharpness phial, elemental phial, blast phial, and last of all the exghuast phial. Also like the switch axe its phial slowly empties after every single attack. Luckily you can detach the phial going back to your basic elemental or non elemental attacks. The phials are like ammo. You can run out if yo…

Hello, and welcome to Discussion of the Week: More Elder Dragons!
Because sequels are always better, right?
Sorry about the gap last week though, I didn't mean for that to happen.
Anyway, on with the show...
I like Jhen a lot, it feels like a much much better attempt at doing a 'big monster' fight on the scale of Lao Shan Lung. The boat on the sand is unique, the two stage fight breaks things up, and the music is pretty epic. Jhen also has a surprisingly good design.
No real comment on Hallowed Jhen Mohran.
Again, it's a much better 'big monster' than Lao. About on a par with Jhen, I'd say, although the underwater aspect makes it a significantly different fight. I do wish there was less passiveness in the first half of the battle, though. Golden…
