July 14, 2010

Quick Brew Info:
Monster Hunter Tri has now moved into 3rd place overall on the Wii, as the most played Wii game by hours averaged “Per person” on the Nintendo Channel.
Kotaku.com reported on July 6 “The 20 Most-Love Wii Games“, and Monster Hunter Tri was in 5th, behind Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
Well, with the data update this week, Monster Hunter 3 has now passed Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Animal Crossing: Harvest Moon, with only Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Animal Crossing ahead of it.

Thoughts:
Last week, I included a video with my post showing a Rathian hunt from Monster Hunter Tri.

This week, I am including a video of a Great Jaggi Arena Hunt, that my wife(Mrs. CwG) and I did on July 4.
Mrs. CwG used the Classic Controller controls and chose the bowgun hunter class.  I used the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls and chose the Hammer hunter class.
Does the Great Jaggi remain “great” by defeating us, or do we take it down? 
The night of this hunt was my wife’s first time playing Monster Hunter Tri.  She read the instruction manual for about 3 minutes, to learn the controls; then we were off hunting.
We contributed about two hours of play-time to the game’s overall data this night, doing several Arena Hunts together.
I think Monster Hunter Tri is another game that is showing Wii owners will play games with great online play, as well as offline play.
Just for comparison, in my post earlier today, I showed Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2’s play-time data.
Super Mario Galaxy’s average play-time hours “Per person” are 30 Hrs. 40 Min.
Super Mario Galaxy 2’s average play-time hours “Per person” are 20 Hrs. 53 Min.
If you missed the picture above, Monster Hunter Tri’s average play-time hours “Per person” are 61 Hrs. 15 Min.

Questions:
If you own Monster Hunter 3, have you played any of the Arena Hunts with a friend(boyfriend/girlfriend) and/or spouse?
Again, if you own Monster Hunter Tri and hunt online, my online name/code is Coffee/KKJ9F2; feel free to message me and look me up!  If you have a Twitter account, and follow mine; I am going to start updating it when I start playing games, so that will be a good way to know when I’m online.
