...I've finally come to the end of my first major wiki edit for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. I've been obsessed with the series since Freedom 2 (with over 1000 hours logged) but felt kind of burned out on Tri with the oversimplified farm, lackluster and disorienting underwater combat, way too hard to kill Jhen Mohran for passage into high rank, and removal of my favorite weapons the Gunlance, Bow and Hunting Horn. The Switch Axe was pretty bomb though. I kept telling my friends that I probably wasn't going to pick up Freedom 3 until last week, for no real reason, I started reading about all the changes they're making.
Now I can't wait to get my greedy little hands on that game. I have no idea if I'll be able to wait the arduously long time it's going to take them to localize it, if they bring it over here at all. On the other hand I really don't know if I'm comfortable picking up the Japanese version since I won't be able to read anything. I know there are plenty of FAQs and resources out there translating every item and menu option, but I'm worried that having to constantly cross-reference a web site every time I want to make a Max Potion will burn me out on the game before I can really get in to it.
I guess for now I'll play the waiting game. With Catackalysm and GT5 it's not like I have the time to dedicate to any real MH play anyways. If you have a moment though, why not pop on over to the wiki and tell me how I did? What did I leave out or, having not even played the game, get completely wrong? Could I be clearer? Could I be neater? Do I say too little or too much?
Thanks for listening to me ramble on about Monster Hunter but I think it's time to get back to work. Those monster pages going all the way back to MH2 aren't going to create themselves!
