We last looked at Monster Hunter Tri's play-time data 3-weeks ago, from August 16. With this week's data, I am including a monster hunt video I went on in the single-player campaign a few days ago. In the video, I'm hunting a Barroth. If anybody has hunted a Barroth, you probably immediately knew what I meant with "A Stick in the Mud!" in the title for this post.

I have been playing Monster Hunter Tri's single-player campaign little, by little, in the last 2-weeks. As I mentioned in the "Quick Brew Info" section, I went my first Barroth hunt in the single-player campaign a few days ago. I had hunted Barroth online with The Butcher and Den before, but I had never progressed far enough to hunt it in the single-player campaign by myself.
Here's Part 1 of my Monster Hunter Tri Barroth hunt:
As for the play-time data, I believe Monster Hunter Tri will become the "most-player" Wii game according to average play-time "per person", within the next 3-weeks; passing Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
The low Amazon.com sales rank is interesting, though it could just be a very temporary rank and tomorrow it could be back up in the #400+ sales rank range it had been in previous weeks.
Is anybody still playing Monster Hunter Tri on a regular basis? If so, what nights/times of the week would work best to try to get online for some monster hunting as a group?
