Introduction



Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the western release of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite was released across America on 6/22/09, Australia on the 25th of June, and Europe on the 26th of June. With over 500 hours of gameplay and previously unreleased monsters, weapons and missions. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the biggest game of the series when it was released and for quite a while if you don't count frontier. Via Ad-Hoc functionality, players can experience the social gaming phenomenon that’s gripping Japan and adventure with each other in a four player co-op for a thrilling and savaging multiplayer hunting party. From devising the strategy, to executing the attack, team play with your friends is going to be key to hunting down the ferocious beasts.



A myriad of things, aside from the obvious singleplayer story that is different, having more content and monsters. There are new weapon types to the series, tweaks to UI functionality to make life more easy, better hitboxes and hit detection, the farm getting an entirely new system to generate farm points and upgrade it and a Felyne name Trenya that we talk about later. There are new clothes and hairstyles as well and the main attraction, a Felyne companion to help your solo hunts which act like a customizable mercenary. That should probably give an idea on part of what is upgraded, needless to say, this game does everything the first game does twice as well, if you wish to get an accurate description the monster hunter wiki should have most of the things written down.



While I don't have the exact results anymore, gunlance did win pretty big this time around, though no one chose a character generation idea, so I decided to make my own little character, I hope you enjoy my horrible idea.



I managed to play over Adhoc with several goons, had plenty of fun, although most people couldn't keep playing sadly. Below I've made a list of people I've played with, had plenty of fun with ya all! For those curious about how to do multiplayer, you ever need Xkai link or Adhoc, Adhoc is by far the easiest and the most simple solution. With Xkai you download a handy dandy program to your pc and hook up your psp to a specially setup wireless router. Then, magic happens and it's supposed to work, don't ask me about the details I never could get it to work properly. Adhoc however is a bit simpler and more streamlined, but more pricey as you need a ps3, a Internet cable going into your ps3, a wireless if you plan on using voice chat, that or a second cable (though I didn't have the luxury due to the distance between me and the router.) Once you have all the hardware, it's a simple matter of downloading Adhoc for free on the marketplace, setting it up quickly and bam! Instant multiplayer, well sort of. With all that being said, this is where I start actually doing multiplayer in my playthrough of some of the monster hunter series.

People I have played with:

Emalde.
Heatwizard.
Gildiss
Reginaldbathwater.
DaNerd.



If a thumbnail says dual commentary, then the thumbnail will have post commentary, there will be a separate link on the side for those that want to listen to solo live commentary. Another thing about post and live commentary, post commentary videos will be edited and cut down for the viewers and commentators ease, while live commentary is the uncut video for obvious reasons. If you wish to see how the video is uncut, then you might want to have a look at the live commentary.

When you see icons next to the episode icon, it is an indicator of what kind of mission it will be, if you don't want to see exploration and gathering, you can easily spot what missions to skip, and what missions types you want to watch, I'll try my best to condense them, so the video only contains that kind of mission in them. The following icons are.

Obviously a tutorial, these will only be seen in the start of a game.

Weapons demonstration videos, me showing off each weapon and whatever new gimmicks they might have gotten in later generation games.

Exploration, not much action will happen in the, I'll chat with npc's explore the areas and show them off mainly.

Gathering missions, these will typically involve me picking up plants, or mining for certain items and so on.

Slaying missions are kind of like hunting missions, only you just stick to small fry and kill a number of the little monsters.

The meat and potatoes of monster hunter, these are missions where you kill large monsters, as the game progresses they will only get bigger and nastier.

A little addition to multiplayer, it can also be done in singleplayer, but I'll be doing these together with people, there aren't too many, so we will probably burn through em quickly.

A mission type in the training school that allows you to fight monsters with several presets of gear, to make the fights more gimmicky and challenging. The other difference is, you can't bring any items with you as they are provided for you and it has no fee associated with the missions, so there is nothing at stake if you lose, aside from your pride, also you can only get knocked out once and it's over. Aside from beating your own records, rewards are tokens to make new gear, farm points and a modest cash prize.

A gimmick mission type that first shows up around high rank, kill as many monsters as you can and deliver the paw pass ticket, you must kill at least two before you can win. Each new monster get's progressively harder.

A rather misleading name for a missions type. They are regular hunting missions, involving hunting several different kinds of monsters but with a catch. When carving monsters and creatures you don't get regular items, instead you get food or healing items, if you carve off of the main monsters you lower your rewards, but you net yourself some healing items if you're running low. It's your choice, do you want more rewards or possibly replenishing the healing items you've spent. These serve as decent farming missions as well, as you don't really need to waste healing items or food if that is your preference.

These fights are gimmick fights. It ranges from monsters so tough you can't take em out in one go, with breaks and health carrying on to the next time you fight them, to defending towns and fortresses against giant monsters.
