With the release of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (MH4U) on its way, and the demo already out, I thought it would be cool to create a thread for Giant Bomb Monster Hunter players to communicate about setting up Gathering Halls.
MH4U is the first portable Monster Hunter to feature true online multiplayer, which means folks can play together online with just their 3DS. This is facilitated through creating a Gathering Hall. Any player can create a Gathering Hall, which generates an id, not unlike a friend code, that lets others join.
My thought is: let's use this thread to figure out either a consistent time & day each week to hunt together or figure out a chat location, like IRC, for seeing if folks are around and want to hunt. Until the game is released on February 13th (in NA), we could play the demo. I personally do not have any friends where I live that are into Monster Hunter, so the idea of playing together online seems great.
What do you all think? I would be into doing something like an hour or two hours on a specific day of hunting, just to try to gather enough community members at the same time and place.
