    Haven't played this game since last August since it looked like poop docked on an OLED TV but decided to check it out today and there's not a lot of ghosting anymore! No more excuse not to play Sunbreak! Probably gonna get my ass handed to me a lot while trying to remember some of the controls and tactics lol

    Also the Sunbreak pro controller seems to be well stocked everywhere!

    I like the sunbreak controller, but at 75 I'm still rocking my magnamalo one from rise.

    the ghosting may have been a tv issue, sometimes with tv updates they adjust stuff like that. I have not had any issues on mine.

    got up to MR 4 just doing some casual playing over the weekend. running some friends through rise to try to get to the new meat and potatoes.

    Ah, good to know about the ghosting! Also the game seems like it's been pre-installed in an update. It took less than a minute to download it lol

    made it to endgame. sunbreak is pretty sick and there is more than plenty to do after.

    glaive got so diverse, I'm sure other weapons did too. there is no "right" way to play anymore, you can be a bug vortex whore for damage or paralysis, switch to a dps bug if staying powered up and being up close is your thing, or go to an older dual color bug to max out wirebug shots (if you have dual color you can be flinging these consecutively as long as you have wirebugs for 800+ each hit).

    I just did that last one on accident but it works and it is really solid for group play when others have aggro and you want to play smart/keep distance.

    really just nice to see that the weapon I've love since it's inception has so much variety to it now, based on the bug you pick.

    Currently at MR mid-60s and this immense grind to MR 100 has lead me to diversify my weapon portfolio. LS is my bread-and-butter but I am fairly proficient in GS, SnS, GL, CB, LBG/HBG, and Bow. I need a suggestion on my next weapon to break in.

    free update tomorrow. seething bazel / lucent narga / silver rathalos / gold rathian
    something similar to guild quests coming for the anomaly quests on the 18th I think they said.

    looks interesting, free stuff is always good.

    Glad they gave me a reason to fight the Apex monsters again. You think Capcom will tried to hide a monster again just like Bazelguese in Rise?

    seething bazel set is kinda meh. gold/silver dragons have awesome status and ele sets. narga has a really good attack set, and I will probably build his poison glaive for the affinity and sharpness.
    hunted them all last night (update was up at 7pm central), bazel is the weakest, dragons mid, narga is a good challenge.

    the anomaly investigations are fun too, but its grindy. something to do til new monsters drop! :)

    So like, I thought I had MHR more or less beat like a year ago, by killing the Magnamalo. But Sunbreak made it clear that the Hub Quests were also part of the story too, so I've been powering through all that recently. I'll probably save Sunbreak for later, though, given this already feels like an expansion. Also want to try out different weapons, but I just found out how to do Switch Skills and leaping over a monster and dropping mines on them is too fun! And lets me actually evade attacks.... man how'd I get this far without doing that?

    anyone playing wild hearts? game is pretty fucking good for a mh clone.

    both rise and wh seem to be different companies evolution of mh:w. very interesting seeing how they both took inspiration from it and streamlined it to a more enjoyable experience.

    and the building aspect becomes second nature once you get used to it. certain building stuff works better with certain weps so you can fine tune your gameplay exactly how you enjoy tackling a monster.

    I wanna try it but I hear performance is pretty iffy right now? Once the game gets some performance patches I'm totally down. Mechanically the game is solid as hell and I definitely wanna give it a go.

    PC has terrible performance feedback and issues. PS5 is fine, which I've been playing on. I assume series X is fine as well as most of the game site reviewers got either ps5 or series x codes.
