  1. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    One of those moments where all you can do is stare at the screen and wonder "...what the heck just happened??" with a side of "how the fuck did I just do that?!" Totally been there
  2. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Got another one for the "...wtf, game??" files... When mounting a monster in-game, you're supposed to be thrown off when it falls. But apparently the game doesn't quite know what to do when something other than a mounted player topples the beast. I mounted this tempered barroth during a two-player hunt, gajalaka started firebombing it, it went down... and I stayed stuck on the side of its head, merrily stabbing away. You can see me leap onto its back and continue stabbing, entirely horizontal. Seriously, game.
  3. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Is that that play-as-a-dinosaur game? If it's not on console, then no
  4. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    At least that's the least painful way to find out Bazel is on the map I don't leave traps lying around if my target avoids it... MHW won't let you place another trap if one is already down. Several times I've had to run halfway across the map to break a trap I'd placed that my target then avoided because it won't let me place another trap even in another zone. But that does sound hilarious This was pretty funny, too... Happened to me today:
  5. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Bazel certainly keeps things interesting XP The Hunt From Hell, though, is when you're after something and both Bazelgeuse and Deviljho are on the map at the same time. They're both guaranteed to butt in. Bazel at least reacts properly to shit pods, but Jho is impossible to get rid of. At least Bazel and Jho have a turf war that damages both equally (only stalemate turf war in the series that I'm aware of) and one or both will scram afterward. Though I will say that it's hilarious watching Jho attempt to bite down on the equivalent of a live grenade with wings
  6. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Beware of Bazelgeuse... This is a clip captured from one of my hunts.
  7. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Nope, I'm on Xbox. I was hunting a tempered barroth for the weekly bounties (needed three brute wyverns, so two Deviljho and a Barroth) and had an uninvited Bagel butt in. I had to capture a video clip; so... many... explosions... In other news, Kirin is ruing the day I learned to solo her fuzzy ass
  8. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    Yeah, flashing the pigs helps immensely. Just have to watch out for the blind charging. Maybe they'll bring it back for the next festival, but since it was for New Year's I'm not holding my breath. I kinda wonder what they would have used if it had been a different animal in the Chinese zodiac, though I'd seen that same group go into the siege several times without the passcode. It wasn't until someone else (i.e., me) tried to join that they locked it. Pure assholery. That person wanted only the same three people to go in with them and locked it to keep anyone from "intruding". I can't solo KT, and my friends aren't on enough to try doing it on our own. So I join random lobbies and grab tracks, then break all her shit. Better rewards for breaking all KT's shit. This is the first time that I've seen her shell broken off in phase 2 though. And yup, she's gone until probably the Appreciation Fest likely next month. It'll be ATKT again, though; the developer update implied that normal non-tempered KT is extinct and we'll only be getting the arch tempered version now. Not that she's much harder than the original. I'm not a speedrunner or any kind of gaming pro, so I'm not the fastest. I prefer it that way, though. My very first tempered kirin solo run took me just a hair over 11 minutes today.

    *posing with my third consecutive captured tempered Bazel, leaning on my Empress Shell 'Styx' LBG and with my armor smoking from all the explosions* I can play with dual blades and light bowguns, though I main the bowgun. I do want to learn insect glaive, tho... The Behemoth one is sweet. Currently I'm HR 270 and about to hit 271. I have three attack jewels, one from the storyline and two from RNG actually being nice during tempered hunts. My friends hate me for it XD;;; Also looking into learning hunting horn, since I have learned the hard way the value of a good HH support in hard quests. I could solo the mosswine event with only one faint. I was trying for a no-faint run, but at about quarter after 7 I got dragged outside to shovel 8 inches of snow (shoveling at night SUCKS, btw) and didn't get back inside until an hour later, when the event had already ended. Been doing AT Kulve Taroth runs, though today I ran into the asshole of assholes while doing so. Got into a session, tried to join a group... The group leader cancelled the quest to get me out, and then locked it with a frigging passcode so that only three specific people were able to join. That right there is an entire new low XP My night ended when I got an error code that not only kicked me out of the quest but right out of the session and into offline mode. With as much work as Capcom put into the game, you'd think they'd put more effort into making the servers stable XP

    He looks like a flying pinecone and he litters the ground with land mines. It's a very apt nickname. And yup, he tends to ruin a lot of quests; he's especially annoying when the quest is specifically a capture and he kills the target. I think his AI was programmed to deliberately come toward other monsters when they start bellowing, because that usually means "hunt in progress". Bazel, like Deviljho, exists entirely to fuck shit up His armor is pretty sweet, though, and all his weapons do blast damage. He's also quite a threat in early high rank, because for new players either he or jho is their first intro to high-rank beasts (usually run into while on the quest to find "??? rathian" tracks) and there is no way a player still in low rank gear can beat either of them. Their most basic attacks are one-shots. If not discovered on those expeditions, they'll be hunting something else and suddenly "ROOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR! *massive explosions*" People learn to duck and run at the first panicked shout of "Bagel!" Fortunately for me, my first Bazel encounter was on a hunt quest in the desert map (Wildspire Wastes) and I had help from friends who'd been playing for two months longer than I had. They found Bazel before it found me, so I was able to run over and get a look without being surprise-exploded (I first met Deviljho by chasing after a monster in the Coral Highlands, turning a corner and almost running smack into him. Thankfully I'd been warned about him and was able to nope out before he spotted me). Deviljho is this thing, btw. Meet the angriest pickle in all of gaming:

    Monster Hunter: World. Bazel is a high-rank monster that tends to show up at random during high-rank quests or expeditions; usually the player doesn't even know he's on the map until the world starts exploding. He's known by the community as the "B-52 Bomber of Monster Hunter". Those pod-like scales under his neck and tail actually drop off when he flies or shakes his head. When they're glowing, they explode on impact. If they drop 'cold' (not glowing) they explode when hit by something. Like Bazel himself nose-diving into them after dropping them in three bombing passes. Fighting a monster with Bazelgeuse ("bazel goose", "beetlejuice", "bagel goose", "flying jho", "#@*^$#(!!", "minecone", etc) on the field is like trying to fight in a minefield. With an angry plane trying to eat you. "Welcome to high rank, bitch! *dive bombs*" Bazel in a nutshell:
  12. Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

    It is a Bazelgeuse. Or a 'majestic bomb birb', because from that angle he looks like a giant explosive eagle

    The Majestic Bomb Birb is disappointed by how dead this place has gotten

    FINISHED! *falls over* Holy crap, this was a big build. From the bottom of the moat to the top of the roof decorations, this castle is 70 blocks tall, almost 30 blocks taller than my pagoda and with a far larger footprint. I'd never built anything this huge before.
  15. Videogame Creations

    I definitely think I got in way over my head with this build... I found a tutorial video on how to build a Japanese castle in Minecraft. But I completely underestimated the sheer size of the thing. The moat itself is only 9 blocks deep, but it's 95 blocks long by 75 blocks wide, and clearing it out literally took me hours even though I'm in creative mode so I can break things with one punch (this is a creative building world. same world I built the Ferris wheel, Eiffel tower, and my fleet of hot air balloons in). There are no commands on the console version (not building in Bedrock because it is entirely too glitchy and I do not want to lose my worlds to the current world corruption bug) so I had to do it all the hard way. The main castle's exterior is done and I'm working on the interior. There's still a whole other building I need to build, plus the gatehouse and the bridge. Then I have to fill the moat. So this is still a massive WIP
