Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a DLC add-on and sequel to Monster Hunter World, though is large enough to have its own trophy list and Platinum. Players will explore new areas such as the freezing cold Hoarfrost Reach, hunt new monsters as well as variants of older monsters, and build new armor and weapons. Players are also introduced to the Clutch Claw, a new tool which allows players to attach themselves to monsters and perform more damage, as well as the Raider Rides, which are smaller creatures that can be ridden.

A mysterious song heard through the air causes a flock of Legiana to migrate across the sea. After tracking the migrating monsters, the Hunter discovers a new polar subcontinent filled with ice, snow, and monsters never seen before. After setting up a new base of operations, the Hunter sets off to discover the source of the song, as well as the strange seismic activity.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne received positive reviews with an average score of 90%, praised for the large scale of the expansion and its content, as well as its beautiful settings and graphics, and overall fun.

The trophies for Iceborne are similar to those in World, which means the difficulty, time required, and method to getting the Platinum, is basically the same. You’ll be spending the majority of your time completing the story, hunting for crowns, and getting your Master Rank level up to 200. One nice thing about this DLC is that, if you haven’t finished unlocking the trophies on World, doing so will now be easier with Iceborne since you’ll have much stronger armor and weapons.

Like World, expect anywhere between 300-400 hours for the Platinum on Iceborne.

Like in the previous game, your first step is to complete the main story of the game.

As you go through the missions, you’ll soon realize that playing Iceborne feels like starting over, as your armor and weapons from World are not strong enough. This is because everything has been upgraded from High Rank to Master Rank. As a result, it is not a bad idea to farm the first monster you face, the Beotodus, and use it to craft your first full set of MR armor and weapons.

Also, as you progress through the story, you will receive a tutorial-like quest that introduces you to the Clutch Claw, which can be used to send monsters crashing into a wall. This is an invaluable move, for not only does this trick do a lot of damage to the monster and knocks it down, but will always break off a piece of material to be collected. We highly recommend becoming a master of the Clutch Claw. If the tutorial quest isn’t good enough, check out the video under our Links tab.

Once the story is complete, it’s time to explore the Guiding Lands, which is an area that incorporates all the bio-domes from World into one area. You’ll ultimately want to reach Master Rank 100 in order to hunt the Ruiner Nergigante and thereby unlocking your last story-related trophy, while also upgrading the areas in the Guiding Lands.

Once you’ve defeated the Ruiner Nergigante and unlocked the Fate’s Conclusion trophy, it’s time to start mopping-up everything that’s left. This will include reaching Master Rank 200 for the Master Of Masters trophy, maximizing research levels for the Monster Master trophy, and obtaining both miniature and gold crowns for nearly all the monsters for both the True Miniature Crown Collector and True Large Crown Collector trophies.

There are also a number of miscellaneous trophies you may still be missing at this point. Be sure to check out the Iceborne trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.

Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter World is a third-person action adventure with RPG elements, and part of the Monster Hunter series which began on the PlayStation 2 in 2004. Players control a Hunter, tasked with either capturing or slaying large monsters that roam in different, nearby environments. When successful, players use pieces of the monster to craft higher level weapons and armor. Players can also gather numerous resources located in each environment that can be used for crafting potions, ammunition, and other helpful items. The game allows for online multiplayer with up to four players.

Humans and other sentient races have sailed off from the Old World and began establishing working bases on a new, wild continent known as the New World. The player-character is a hunter, who is assisting the Research Commission to embark on expeditions and study the Elder Dragons that reside in the New World.

Monster Hunter World received highly positive reviews with an average score of 90%, praised for its graphics, beautiful environments, game mechanics, and overall fun gameplay.

The Platinum for Monster Hunter World is not particularly difficult - especially since you can request assistance from other online players. However, the road to the Platinum is a very long and time-consuming one. You'll need to capture or defeat the same monster several times in order to collect Crowns, which not only requires much time, but is heavily lucked based. But with enough determination, any average player should be able to obtain the Platinum.

Expect anywhere between 300-400 hours for the Platinum, heavily dependent on luck and a little skill.

You'll first want to start by going through the story, while upgrading your armor and weapons. There are a number of side quests you can complete as well which can offer useful rewards. If you get stuck trying to defeat a monster, remember to always try sending out an SOS, as more often than not, the other online players who arrive to help will be of higher rank. Continue through the story until you've defeated the final boss. From there on out, the level-cap will be lifted and you'll be free to venture out anywhere you wish. You'll unlock a number of trophies naturally during this process.

Also, each time you log in, make it a habit of sending out your Guild Card to everyone on the server. Chances are, at least one or two of those people will send you theirs as well. You'll need to collect over 50 guild cards for the Spreading The Word trophy.

Once that's done, it's basically time to unlock all other trophies, except for those related to collecting Crowns and a few other grinding trophies. This should include The Hunter's Life For Me trophy for completing 50 optional quests, The Franchise Hunter trophy for completing 50 investigations, the Nowhere To Go But Up trophy for completing 50 arena quests, obtaining five highly rare (Rarity 8) armor pieces for the Impregnable Defense trophy, having five highly rare weapons (Rarity 8) for the Power Is Everything trophy, as well as the three capture-related trophies, which include A Living Soffil, Snuggles For All, and Bristles For All trophies. For more details, be sure to check out the Monster Hunter World trophy guide links under our Links tab.

After all that, it's time to start grinding for those crowns. You'll need a miniature crown for almost every monster for the Miniature Crown Master trophy, a giant crown for almost every monster for the Giant Crown Master trophy, and research everything about almost every monster for the Monster Ph.D trophy, while also working towards reaching hunter rank 100 for the Established Hunter trophy. With all this grinding, you should eventually unlock the Bourgeois Hunter trophy for having 1,000,000 zenny at one time, if you haven't been spending it.

Happy Hunting!

2017 Tokyo Game Show Video Presentation (Day One)

Our video presentation of the 2017 Tokyo Game Show – Day One. Lots of big titles coming out, including God of War, Call of Duty: WW II, Detroit: Become Human, and Monster Hunter: World. Also see some wacky Japanese titles, like Gal Gun 2, and Earth Defense Force 5. Watch us get sprayed in the face with air guns, and exhaust ourselves on exorcise bikes!

Stay tuned for our 2017 Tokyo Game Show Video Presentation – Day Two, where we check out some interesting indie games and loads of Virtual Reality software and peripherals.

The 2017 Tokyo Game Show

Makuhari Messe first opened their doors to the press on Thursday, and are now wide open to the public where eager gamers are piling in to check out this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The crowds get bigger each year, but so too does the Tokyo Game Show ever since recovering from the global recession several years ago. All three main halls are now wall-to-wall with gaming companies and businesses, while an additional two more were open for indie games, VR, and an attempt to promote e-sports here in Japan.

2017 Tokyo Game Show

While there weren’t any main events or “must see” games or hardware this year, there were some titles we were thrilled to check out. The PlayStation booth had playable demos for Santa Monica Studio‘s God Of War, set to be released early next year, as well as Polyphony Digital‘s Gran Turismo Sport racing its way to stores next month, and the next Call of Duty: WWII set for release in November.

Other cool titles to try – and were heavily promoted – included Detroit: Become Human, the latest game from the developers of Heavy Rain set in a neo-noir future involving androids, planned for release sometime next year. And of course, Monster Hunter: World – the first Monster Hunter title to have Trophies! – coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in January. It’s apparent Monster Hunter: World is one of the more anticipated games here in Japan, with massive promotional booths at both the PlayStation area, as well as the Capcom spot which featured a massive dragon-like creature.

2017 Tokyo Game ShowOther titles being promoted by the bigger companies included Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer DLC coming next month from Square Enix, the remake of Ryu ga Gotoku 2 (Yakuza 2) titled Ryu ga Gotoku: Kiwami 2 by SEGA, as well as their Ryu ga Gotoku Online set for launch next year – which we suspect may not see an overseas release.

But in our opinion, the more exciting stuff was happening at the indie game and VR hall, were we saw – and tried – an assortment of experimental games, as well as new VR software and peripherals.

H2L, a Japanese company, had a new VR device called the First VR, which includes a simple wristband that not only tracks your arm movements, but when your hand is is opened or closed, allowing you to “pick up and drop” items in the virtual world.

Another Japanese developer, named Prodigy, worked with Joysound to create a boxing/karaoke game called Nagu Kara, meaning Punching Karaoke. Select your favorite song (we did Bon Jovi – It’s My Life) and sing into the mic to boost your strength, while using the motion controls to box your way to the top.

And Unbereal created a VR tank battle game called ArtiFight, where players moved their tanks forward and back by peddling on an exorcise bike, while turning and firing using hand controllers.

2017 Tokyo Game ShowChinese developer NetDragon had several “4D” VR games for demonstration, our favorite being D-Day, an on-rails shooter where you fire at multiple alien creatures using a gatling gun. Not only do you feel immersed in the action through the VR headset, but the whole seat and physical representation of the gatling gun moves and shakes depending on what’s happening in the game.

And the biggest event – requiring a 3 hour wait to try – was the Gyro VR from South Korea’s Sangwha. Enter a massive gyro like you might see at NASA, strap on the VR headset, and experience robot battles and extreme sports while being spun 360 degrees in sync to what’s happening in the virtual world.

Perhaps this was the first time the indie and VR games stole the show away from the bigger developers, marking the 2017 Tokyo Game Show an overall fun and intriguing experience!
