Welcome to the world of Maude Garrett

Tri my best

I’ve been playing Monster Hunter Tri – exclusive to the Wii – for 22 hours now. I tell you what, there is a love/hate relationship with this game.

I love the graphics (think Final Fantasy XII). I love the RPG element where you can custom make your character. I love the simplicity of direction this game takes you, so you’re never lost or waste time trying to navigate around the game. I love that your strengths, attacks etc don’t rise during the game, but your weapons and armour instead. And I love that these can only be upgraded from the materials you collect from hard bosses, thus keeping at par with where you are in the game. I love that they have made a Monster Hunter Wikipedia online.


I hate the Royal Ludroth. I hate how when I’m trying to trap the Qurupeco, he calls on his mega buddy Rathian to wipe me out instantly. I hate that I’m not killing these monsters in my first attempt! They’re really damn hard! I have nearly thrown my wiimote through my tv screen a couple of times!

I need more patience. I need to breathe. I need to not get so frustrated when I faint 3 times even though the boss is WEAK and LIMPING. I need to harvest herbs to make an insane number of potions.

I need to play more right now.

22 hours, and counting. I’m only a sixth of the way in, and that’s not including online play at all.

Cancel my meetings, turn off my phone. This game is turning into my life.

Let me know how you’re trekking with it!

Go on, get your hunt on.

  1. Yeah this game is great, I am up to the same part as you…. Gobul T_T. Man I just can’t kill it, but I am going to get some Isisium from Tundra mining online to create a Barroth Lance!

    I saw your Monster hunter video’s on the Nintendo Channel, pretty cool.

    Happy Hunting!

    There are a lot of annoyances in Tri (and MH games in general), you just need to overcome them. Play smart, don’t be overly aggressive, pick your moments to attack and when to evade. Also, use a CC Pro, it’s far superior to the Wii mote when hunting.

  3. 22 hours? Reminds me of my recent stint reviewing Final Fantasy XIII. *claws eyes out*
