If you're enjoying Rise, check out Pat's ode to Monster Hunter: World's GREAT SWORD, which is a GREAT SWORD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sPtxKqRa0I
thanks for the tut, cus after my initial impression and first run, i had a very difficult time with controls, oh and i'm playing on pc
Can we stop putting the flinch shenanigans in these types of videos? Flinch free exists for a reason, it's on you that you're not using it.
oh my god i’ve been doing multiplayer quests all this time and couldn’t figure out why I was struggling so bad
This was really useful! I was very confused at first because of the walls of text the game gives to explain stuff, and this explained things well, thank you! 🙂
Do you have any embryo tutorials???? This is still a smidge advance for me. I picked this game up today, and I’ve never played any games before.
greatsword and hammer are literally two of the most mechanically simple weapons in the game, but I wouldn't expect polycuck to know that, they're too preoccupied with politics
I really screwed myself when I decided that bow was a good starter weapon
This is a really excellent video. Didn't expect to watch the whole thing.
So do we want to upgrade or just replace armor 😅
I’m playing the demo now and the tutorial is TERRIBLE
Nice video. I learned a lot of helpful stuff, but it didn't answer the biggest question I had: how to target/lock on monsters, etc. Just bought the game to play with friends and I really want to get into it… but I find the controls in this game to be a total unintuitive mess – the one thing hindering me from enjoying it so far.
I have just bought this game today and your video was a big help!
Wow! I am only thinking of picking this up. No gameplay yet. This is a lot, but I just might go for it. Plus the Deluxe Edition is on sale.
this is so helpful. I just bought the game and started playing last night :') I was confused about what to do and what to kill, I went on expedition after the first quest/mission (tutorial), I saw a monster on my minimap, which is Azuros, I thought I was supposed to kill it, but I don't see the quest to kill it. since I saw the icon on mini map, I just followed and tried to kill it. but this guy is thick af 😭 I died once then tried again. finally after battles and chasing multiple times, I got to kill it.I don't think I should kill it tho 😂 I don't see the quest to kill it on the left. I decided to watch beginner tip on yt today, and thank you for this great video 🤙
World is Just much better ☹️
I was honestly in the process of selling this game, but this tutorial actually made me want to keep playing
As an absolute baby, I appreciate this
here for the pc version 🙂
What happends if my wolf or cat dies
lol look how slow the greatsword is lol trash
Great video. Just got this for the switch and it throws a lot of stuff at you at the beginning which blew my mind. This video is perfect.
You are a lifesaver! This was very helpful. Been trying to understand the mechanics of this game but now I'm ready to hunt! 😁
I'm not a baby, I'm a goddamned fetus.
The ration is a ration.
