Every dragon has a weakness… a true hunter does not

Hit’em hard! The MHP3 weakness chart & more


2hitemhard

So I was browsing through deviantArt when I stumbled upon AliveDrive‘s amazing MHP3 weakness chart! Granted, not all of the monsters that will appear in MH3U are on there, then again the chart is for MHP3 (PSP, PS3).

Anyway, I’ve been working on a small project myself. Lately I’ve been playing MHFU (PSP) a lot more often and sometimes have a hard time remembering what the elemental weaknesses of a monster are and where I should attack it.  Luckily there are websites like Monster Hunter Wiki that provide plenty of information on that. Still, it’s kind of troublesome to have to click through all of the links, so I’ve decided to create something different: The Book of Monsters.

I intend to create one page per monster that contains all necessary information on how to defeat it. These pages can easily be transferred to your smartphone or tablet pc and you can access the information anytime anywhere rather quickly. Below you see one of the prototypes. Let me know if anything is missing.

24 hour hunting & MHP3rd Event


While Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is still waiting to be released outside of Japan, the game is being pretty popular there. It’s probably for that reason that the Universal Studios Japan have announced a MHP3rd event. It’s however still unclear as to what kind of event this may be. But it’s rather likely that it’ll feature some more information and gameplay from the upcoming Monster Hunter Protable 3rd HD for PS3. Anyway, we’ll keep you updated.

In other news, Capcom-Unity-User Snow has announced a 24 hour-hunting session on one of the Monster Hunter Tri servers. Check out the description below or visit the official homepage for more detail.

It’s a long weekend for most of us, meaning extra time to play games! More specifically, time well spent hunting the ravenous creatures of Monster Hunter. This Saturday pop in Monster Hunter Tri in your Wii, and meet up with Capcom-Unity for epic hunting, BBQing, arm wrestling, drinking at the pub, and flaunting ones achievements in the world of Minegarde. Details are as follows:

– Get online in Monster Hunter Tri Saturday anytime
– Go to the Server Valor 4
– Head to Gate 40
– Capcom-Unity will be waiting for you! 

That’s the meet up destination! Expect to find fellow Capcom-Unity Monster Hunters throughout the day. This event takes place both in North America and in Europe. If you’re playing in North America click here for more information, and if you’re playing in Europe click here.

It’s an all day event, but don’t feel obligated to be there the whole time. Just hop online and in that server and gate when you get a chance!

Huntin’ Beasties in HD & 3D


Capcom just never seizes to amaze their fans. A couple of days ago Capcom has announced that they will release a HD-version of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd this summer in Japan. Apart from looking frickin’ epic in high definition, the game will also support 3D (with glasses and the whole stuff you’d usually need to play one of them fancy 3D stuff) and allow you to not just share your savegame-data between PSP and PS3 but also to join forces with other huters (PSP or PS3) with Ad-Hoc Party!

It’s still unkonwn whether MHP3rd HD will be available on PSN (assuming it’s up again until then) or as a hard-copy – even though I’d kind of prefer the second option. So far there are no plans to release either MHP3rd (PSP) or MHP3rd HD (PS3) outside of Japan. But as most of you probably already know it was the same for Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G and the western hunters still got to hunt down their Nargacugas in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. Be that as it may, it would be  exhilarating to get another MH-part on the big screen. While Monster Hunter Tri was (and still is) a great game, it still lacks some stuff to really shine – like HD-graphics, a decent voice-chat-feature (I always use skype) and a bigger amount of gear and monsters to hunt. All of this was however featured in Capcoms Monster Hunter Frontier which unfortunately is only available in Japan.

Anyway, MHP3rd HD is definately something you should look forward to. Capcom will release more information on the title on May 28th. Until then: Check out the announcement-trailer (make sure to watch it in HD) below or visit the official website!
