I desperately want to hunt some monsters, so I’m playing some Dauntless right now on Twitch. Come join chat for fashion, neat weapons, and strangely adorable (but deadly!) critters.

This game is so very, very bad.  It’s like they gutted monster hunter and replaced all the good bits with microtransactions.  Visually, it’s repulsive.  Monsters lack interesting animations, environments are hideous, players and armor are unpleasant to look at.  The story is abysmal.  I thought it would be neat to have a cross-platform monster hunter I could play with my kids, but we spent about an hour with it before deciding it was just monster hunter, but bad and uninstalled.
