Didn't see this as a topic but it has been getting great press. I have never played one before but I might look into it after seeing the reviews.

Gametrailers review 9.0  They loved it.

I'm about to pick it up (along with Majora's Mask) so I'll try to post impressions later tonight.

I would really get into these Monster Hunter games if, and that's a BIG IF, they would eliminate the idiotic time limits.  They should at least give you the option.

The first free DLC is out now, and it includes a bunch of new quests, armors, and weapons, including Link's sword, bow, and armor.

This is the first MH title that I've really enjoyed.  I already have about 50 hours played, and I still feel like I'm just getting started.  I've done a few coop hunts with my family, but have mostly be doing solo quests. 

So far I've been using and learning the Gunlance, Hunting Horn and Charged Blade.  My son has been mainly using the new Insect Glaive, which has great mobility and easy vaulting, and comes with a "Kinsect" that can be upgraded and evolve (like a pokemon). 

My guild card says I'm HR1 (not sure how the ranks work), and I'm currently working on level 4&5 quests.

Is there a time limit on this DLC, or can I safely wait until I'm done with my current 3DS game to put Monster Hunter 4 in and grab it then?  None of the press releases I've seen mention an expiration date, but I'd hate to miss out.

They're going to release free DLC on the first Thursday of every month, so I would think the first batch would be around at least until early April (and probably far beyond that, but you never know).

ARISE!!!

So I picked up a New 3DS this week and grabbed Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.  This is my first real attempt at getting into a MH game...I tried one of them (back on PS2, I think), but didn't stick with it for long. 

While it's all very intriguing, the sheer amount of information they throw at you from the start is a bit overwhelming.  Any suggestions for a complete noob, or beginner guides that you would recommend?

I recommend completing the tutorial hunt with each of the available weapon sets and finding one you enjoy.  There were some I immediately took to, like the Charge Blade and the Insect Glaive, and others I found completely foreign.  The game doesn't immediately tell you this, but you have one of each in your house chest so you can immediately begin hunting with whichever style you enjoy most!

After that, start hunting monsters that drop the crafting materials you need to begin upgrading your armor.  Don't fret too much about the individual stats -- just look for something with better defense ratings and the rest will come as you play deeper into the game.
