Last week, on the one year anniversary for the game, I hopped online to do some monster hunting. I was able to join up with a few other monster hunters, from NinTemple.com and NintendoWorldReport.com, and monster hunt for a few hours. We hunted a lot of monsters, most of which I had never hunted or seen before in the game, and I had a lot of fun.
One monster hunter, that wasn't able to get online last Wednesday, requested a Great Jaggi to be hunted in his "honor". The video below is of a group of us that honored that request, as we went on a Great Jaggi hunt!
As for the game-play hours, I think the data reported is awesome for a third party game on the Wii. With the average hours reported "Per person" increasing at a steady rate, I wonder if/when the game will reach an average reported play-time of 100 Hours "Per person".
If you're thinking, "Coffee, the average play-time is 90 Hours 25 Minutes 'Per person', what's your time with Monster Hunter 3?" Well, I passed the average just in the last week, and the image below shows my total time, as reflected on the game's menu:
|96 Hours 20 Minutes for me!|
