    Molehill Mountain Episode 228 – Monster Hunter THIGHS

    A lot of bare-legged armor in this one.



    2:39 - Nintendo is awesome at a great many things! Writing surveys ain't one of them

    14:42 - Do you like legs? Then Monster Hunter Rise's armor sets are for you!

    37:01 - There are two very petty and immature reasons I'm not interested in Monster Hunter Stories 2

    40:16 - Don't worry about the Godzilla vs Kong poster. I fixed the eyelines

    43:12 - I try to provide my thoughts on WandaVision but I mostly get sidetracked with other topics

    6:59 PMFreaKill​Hey, Andrew! I was about to go to bed, but now I gotta know what's up with THIGHS :)



    7:00 PMmatthew wilson​there is definitly a anti ms bias



    7:01 PManime momo​Nice



    7:03 PManime momo​My day was all right (:



    7:03 PMFreaKill​Hiking's great, nature, fresh air, exercise. Coincidentally, also good for THIGHS :D



    7:09 PMJared Knisely​we get it, its a bad survey



    7:10 PMaddictedtochaos​Just type N/A



    7:12 PMmatthew wilson​online in another thing nintendo is awful at



    7:13 PMJared Knisely​survey do not show good data tho



    7:14 PMJared Knisely​too much manipulation/lack of true audience voice



    7:15 PManime momo​Lol



    7:15 PMmatthew wilson​sounds like monster hunter thighs gave you a rise



    7:16 PMLynndy Lee​haha

    7:21 PMaddictedtochaos​I’m looking forward to playing Rise.



    7:21 PMFreaKill​agree, the green one looks kinda silly - all that bulky armor and a gaping hole in terms of leg protection. Looks like the designer didn't want to make a boob window but wanted to show skin SOMEWHERE



    7:25 PMFreaKill​and now I remembered about "NiGHTS Into Dreams" for some reason and it makes me wonder what kind of game "THiGHS" would be



    7:26 PMReverend Werewolf​im so glad that theres such a diversity in the monsters in this game,world was mostly dragons,subspecies and variants.
