Day 1

The main task is complete and the "final" monster has been defeated. Final my ass. There's always another. The Cadeaus was a bitch. II squeaked out the victory in the final minutes of the allocated time. And really I feel a bit guilty about taking the rewards and partaking in the village's celebration in my honor. I didn't really kill the monster. All I did was chop off one of its' horns. How is that a victory again? It's still out there. It can still ram the ocean floor and cause earthquakes. What the hell are these primitive bitches celebrating for?  Simple people I suppose.

I also took on my first "Hard" request and took on a Purple Ludroth. Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, that thing was shockingly vicious. It's like the creature's sole purpose is to poison as many other creatures as possible. If you get to close to it, it swipes at you with a poisonuous claw attack. If that misses you, it will do a small jump in the air, land with a belly flop. As it lands it emits out poison gas from it's pores in every direction, poisoning everything in the immediate area.  If you were are further away, it will just spit out poison blobs of... something at you. And finally if you're not in the direction its spitting at, no need to worry. It'll start running around like a maniac spitting poison in every single direction until it's tired itself out. How does evolution make something that useful? Is this for population control or something? What possible use does mother nature have for something like this? At any rate I can see why they wanted it dead.

That does lead me into yet something else I feel guilty about. It seems like every few times I kill one of these things, the Cheif's dimwitted son calls me over and let's me know that the same monster has now been spotted roaming the woods of the island. Apparently everytime I kill something big, it's family members come to the island seeking revenge for me. So I save the island from being destroyed by an earthquake, but soon it'll be overrun by monsters that would give Godzilla a run for his money. Yep, I'm doing the lord's work here.

Purple Ludroth looks way cool.  Wish I had more time to play myself.  I just beat my first online Quropeco  Sad

Anyhow, you can confort yourself by knowing that you didn't actually kill the Cadeaus, thus saved the village from a Cadeaus infestation.  What a hero!

So what happens when you die in Monhun?  Does it take you back to a checkpoint, or back to a portal town?

If you die on a quest you're sent back to base camp and have to track the monster down again.  3 deaths means you failed the quest.

Day 2

Finally got around to killing that damned Purple Ludroth. Took me a couple tries, but like everything else "bitch got knocked the fuck down!" At least I think that's how the natives say it. Speaking of the natives, the local blacksmith made me some armor with some of the Purple Ludroth parts. I'm not sure I like it though. Sure it's strong, but the armor is really more pink than purple. This village is already a sausage fest. I mean, there's all of 3 women here. One is fat, and one isn't really native. Basically it's just a bunch of dudes.... most of whom are sailors. Yeah I'm just going to stick with the spikey red armor instead. I don't want to give off the wrong vibe here.

A bit later I went on a group hunt. Me and some other guy named Viktor went out to the Tundra to take on a Barioth. Barioth's are kind of a cross between a flying snake and a sabertooth tiger. Seriously, where the hell do these things even come from? IT's really a sight to behold though. It flies around, swoops down, and then clings to a wall, before it dashes off and strikes at you. It's a pretty nasty beastie, but Victor and I were handling it pretty well. At least we were until Victor fucking up and vanished.

Seriously, he just quit and left me to fight this thing?!?! Fuck man. That's Rule 328 of the Bro Code - that shalt not bitch out when fighting a giant flying monster with HUUUUUUUGE POINTY TEETH!!  It got rought. It ended up knocking me out twice. And on my final go-around with it, I couldn't even track the damned thing because I ran out of paint bombs, and kept running in and out the wrong holes and caves looking for the Barioth. On a slightly related note, do you know what the motto of the village is? "There is no wrong hole!" Yeah, I'm gonna lay off that pink armor. Anyway, I did finally find it and it came real close to killing me, but I got in a few good hits and once again the monster died.

Good times. Oh and happily, no Barioths have invaded the island once I returned. Maybe all that bad ju-ju will get stuck with Viktor instead.

Are there consequences for failing the quest?

Only that you lose the money you pay upfront to partake in said quest and all the potions and stuff you used during the quest.

I have not played a Metal Gear game in over 25 years. So the answer is no.

Like SupremeAC mentioned aside from the money the only other consequence is the loss of time. Later battles take upwards of 45 minutes (hell the early battles can also take that long if you have weak equipment and don't know what you're doing). If you repeatedly fail, that's a pretty major time investment. Very easy to get frustrated, though I've been lucky and so far there have only been 2 monster battles where I failed more than once.

I'm so torn right now. I don't know if I should get Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U or wait and see if they make a Wii U version of MH4U.

MH4U isn't going to happen on the Wii U for quite some time if it does show.
