I've been pretty bored as of late, so I've decided to give the Monster Hunter series a go and am having a blast, so I want to extend an invitation to anyone who may have an interest in the series to play cooperatively. This isn't really a Monster Hunter general, but if you want to talk about organizing something in, let's say, Iceborne, feel free.
>What do I need?
All you need is PPSSPP emulator, a gamepad, and the ISO file. The default network settings should have it connecting to myneighborsushicat.com, a community-ran server that allows you to play a variety of PSP games online. I'll provide links to what you need down below.
>I've never played it before. How's the game?
It's weird going in completely unfamiliar with the series, so I didn't know exactly what to expect. I started off trying Portable 3rd as per recommendation before switching to the first one and finally settling on Freedom Unite.
What surprised me the most is how little the core of the game has changed over the eight years the three games cover. It's all a little clunky, but once you adapt to it it's surprisingly fun. There are 11 distinct weapons classes that are reasonably well balanced so long as you read carefully and use the training mode. Some are more technical than others but it's not too overwhelming to go from one weapon class to another. It's very preparation focused and the game gives you the necessary tools to be reasonably prepared. Progression is really dependent on your pace and experience, so generally It has clear Japanese influence, but it doesn't feel anything like a JRPG if you were concerned of that.
One of the things I have yet to try out but would like to is the co-op. It's clearly designed to be played cooperatively. There are a few players that I see appear from time to time, but I have yet to play with any of them. You select which room you want to be in with each room supporting up to four players. I won't be online for a bit, but I insist that you get started even if you're just trying it out.FILESPPSSPP: https://ppsspp.org/Freedom Unite: https://coolrom.com.au/roms/psp/45589/MonPost too long.
