  • I wonder if the biology of the monsters in monster hunter is different seeing how the atmosphere and living conditions match our own, no rare or special element that grants a boost to how these monsters evolved and gained their elemental properties , it seems the world the wyverns live in is more related to ours rather than a world that produces a magical energy that enhances growth and development of monsters

  • Yeah dauntless was a rip off of monster hunter, and was terrible but has gotten a bit better. And was alright only because we were lacking a modern monster hunter game for those that couldn't afford it, but you know thats not a problem anymore. but you know since i love monster hunter i still play it every now and then. But uh its alot different i guess from monster hunter but only because they couldn't figure out how to replicate MH's detailed skill and monster system but hey they did a alright job for their first real game.

    Kiki StarKiki Star2 місяці tagasi
  • Hello there! I don't know if this will be seen because youtubers don't tend to look at comments on older videos, but I digress. I was wondering if you would ever be obligated to make a theory on the Monster Hunter franchise? Mainly the newer game World since it's more accessible to newer players. As the name suggests, you hunt monsters, and there isn't much to be theorized on for the story, but I am more focused on the ethics and science of it. Would it be possible for the monster populations to remain at a decent number even while plenty of people are slaughtering monsters left and right? Again, I don't know if you'll see this, but I hope you do because I love Game Theory and this is something that has been bothering me for years and I wanted to know if you had a theory about it

  • Two things. One: Ive learned way more things of value to help navigate life and other skills outside of school than the 23 years within school. which is why life is not a subject because you cant teach life nope no possible way to be taught. Number two: When explaining the bone makeup in larger animals such as the elephant and how brittle the bones can be and gave a statement about how no one is going around smacking the elephant in the head my mind immediately went to the Bible's David and Goliath and why the slingshot to the head worked
