Did the first “Monster Hunter” mission. It was pretty neat; with the monster I fought (a Rathalos) having a completely unique AI and pattern, separate from any of the mechanized units that I’ve faced in the past. Speaking of the battles with machines, some of those are getting entirely too long. I did a five-skull difficulty mission that took me more than 45 minutes to complete by myself. That’s a bit long for a boss fight with no checkpoints. If this is any indication, the red-skull difficulty missions will be nearly impossible outside of multi-player.
