"Yeah it's a lot like this."
Well I was reading an article a few days ago about "Why we love Monster Hunter" it awakened that old monster hunting spirit inside me! Now if your a fan of the Monster Hunter series like me then you know just what I mean. This is an action RPG, no leveling and really not much story. Sounds exciting you say? I know! It's all about the thrill of the hunt and collecting and building kick ass armor and bigger and badder weapons. To fight bigger and badder monsters.
Now there is a version that came out on the Wii not to long ago and it is pretty dang good, but I prefer to do my Monster Hunting on the move, with my PSP. A game long ago just sounded cool to me, but at first I really sucked at, and gave up. Then read some more about and gave the Hunting School a try and then made my first kills on my mission I was instantly hooked! Now I have logged over 100 hrs on my PSP which I hear isn't much compared to the some 200+ hours i hear on others. Sadly out of my gamer friends I am the only one who owns a PSP and who has even heard of Monster Hunter. So this Hunter hunts alone. In the last PSP version of Monster Hunter Freedom: Unite it is all about hunting in a group which I hope to try out sometime.
Side note in the game you have a NPC that is a cat that helps you on your hunts and hunts with you. Mine his name is Tango. Which is where I got the name for my cat that I posted not to long ago.
So if you like killing huge monsters, having awesome weapons, enjoy having a cat help kick some monster tail as your partner, and collecting cool armor you should really check this game out.
