    I've never put much effort into either longsword or great sword. Maybe I should give those a serious go.
    So many choices...

    Stupid question - does the Switch connect to the TV via HDMI?

    Yes via the dock.

    It wouldn't have surprised me to hear it was still using a component cable.
    After all, there's no voice chat.

    Did anyone tell him he needs to buy AA batteries?

    After what could easily be over a thousand hunts with the greatsword in world I'd like to try another weapon. But I'll probably main the GS instead.

    Put about an hour into the game. So far still wading through exposition boxes explaining things I mostly forget a few mins later. Been a bow main in every MH game Iíve played in the past but this time decided to give the knives a try.

    On another note though, what a stunning looking Switch game. Amazing what the little thing can do when pushed.

    I went longsword... man there is an exciting aura around a new monhun. Set up characters and did the first training quest. Very much feels like mon hun and I love the new doggos

    @Alastair cant you just disconnect your camera and pretend to be paying attention?

    @Alastair sounds like time for a convenient Internet outage. Once you have done the online check it does the first time it runs

    @ZuluHero I thought about doing the same, but I have not found the option in MS Teams to have animated backgrounds ;)

    On topic: I briefly tried the demo but got a bad MH3 deja-vu (3DS, abandoned years ago mostly because of... I can't remember, only that I lost interest).

    But somehow it's still intriguing me (especially reading this thread), so I'm going to have another go at the demo.

    Did my first large monster hunt... carted twice and took me 30 minutes.

    Think I may need to git gud again.

    Did we play together on MH Tri? I guess not if you're referencing 3DS..

    I've found the armour sets in the old games to be too restrictive. One of the best changes (for me) in MHW was the way armour skills worked so you could get a benefit from a single piece rather than having to have a complete set to trigger the skill.

    @Alastair just a text saying 'Royal mail will deliver it as early as the official release date' post usually arrives between 10-2.
