Seriously the original games did so well, and now the new one came out and no one is talking about it.

#2 Edited by freedomfreak (39202 posts) -

No, SonicNextGen2, I have not.

Should I feel dirty?

How 'should' one feel dirty, when said person is always dirty?

I'll get it when it comes to PC

Eh, it might, Arcsys and Aksys have been expressed interest in..wait, is that sarcasm?

I'm going to wait for the Vita version since I prefer going through the story mode on a portable.

@Slashkice:

Just a question, I want to sell the nendoroid that came with it, any good sites? Because Amazon wants me putting in all these details I don't know about.

You could give MFC a try. You'll probably find some buyers on CAG too, or the B/S/T thread on GAF if you have an account.

I feel this is one of those series, that regardless of quality, lost a bit of the media impact after the first game which is a shame. As far as I know it's a damn good series!

@Desmonic: It's a great series! And Continuum Shift got a lot of coverage, I think the problem with this game was:

1. A really big delay between JP and EU/NA release (1 month for the others, but it took nearly half a year for this game).

2. Piss poor shipping schedules (about half of the people who use Gamestop and Best Buy said none of them got copies or will receive them for a while).

3. Bad localization handling (Related to 1, but also the fact about half of the characters have voice actor changes and there are still spelling mistakes and weird localization changes).

Overall, it's still a great game: great story, balanced and action packed gameplay, an amazing gallery mode, and a genuine and awesome new soundtrack and stages.

Really? These issues still happen in 2014? Damn! I thought we were way, way past this already :S

Shame, it's one of these series that deserves a bit more love by the mainstream crowd.

I was never all that into the first one, and I only really have one person who would also buy it that I could play the game with.

As far as fighting game fixes go I just either hop back on Street Fighter 4, or go get my ass kicked in Virtua Fighter 5. I might get the PC version, maybe. But I think I rather try to take the time to learn King of Fighters 13.

#16 Posted by Slashkice (13055 posts) -

@Slashkice: Is MFC a reliable website?

Personally I only use the site to track my own collection, but the community seems solid enough. They have a feedback system so you can be sure you're only doing business with a trusted member.

I haven't yet but thanks for reminding me.

#18 Edited by bbkkristian (14945 posts) -

Pass. I got a taste of it with the one that was released on Vita. I'll stick to p4a.

My LE was shiped and should be here on friday. I enjoy the single play content the game has. Gatta love those joke endings.

I bought CP over PSN since it was a decent deal and got extra ten bucks recently but I can't download the game till April 1st, LAME! Anyways, CSE on Vita is my most played game ever so I can't wait to be playing this game. Oddly I rarely ever go online since connection was pretty bad over Vita but maybe thats just my internet connection. I don't have any friends that are good at this game so most of the time I just do Unlimited Mars but I'll try out online at some point. I main Noel and only Noel since the first game, so I'm mainly getting this game because they changed her look...

#25 Edited by finalfantasy94 (26353 posts) -

I played a bit with bullet recently. Yea shes awesome and I will be using her alot.

Wait a new Blazblue came out?

What kind of changes/improvements come with this one?

#27 Posted by TheFadeForever (1700 posts) -

Is it any good?

#28 Posted by finalstar2007 (24962 posts) -

Its a fighting game so i dont see how playing it is any different from the second game that i played on the Vita.. i'll wait till its offered by PS+ tbh, i dont pay for fighting games.

story wise noone has an individual story mode with multiple endings. Now its just 3 different story arcs you play through. I kinda am dissapointed by this. In a gameplay sense they added something called overdrive mode which enhances each characters ablity.I havent used everyone but as far as Jin is concerned he feels different and they added some moves for him but got rid of some.

#30 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@LostProphetFLCL:

-Overdrive Mode

-3 Story Arcs rather than having different Character's with each story

-6 new characters

-All new stages w/ only 2 returning

-Revamped Themes

-New moves and distortion drives

-New gallery

-Revamped Online Mode

#31 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@TheFadeForever:

It's probably the best one yet, and the reviews are looking good for it as well: http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/blazblue-chrono-phantasma

@finalstar2007:

Because if you knew Blazblue, it's not like every other fighting game, as it has a new 40 hour story and 6 new characters (and Arcsys makes REALLY in-depth characters)

#32 Posted by darkspineslayer (19549 posts) -

Got it to review yesterday. Still not sure what the hell I'm doing or what's going on.

@charizard1605: I might end up calling it a triumph and highlight. You never know.

As i said i played the second game on Vita and it was probably the only fighting game that ever got me interested story wise but the gameplay like any other fighting game was repetitive as hell.. like i did with the Vita game will wait till its offered by PS+ and play it ( on Vita i hope ) later on.

hey, i just saw some blurred out tentacle j-porn in a cracked article and it reminded me you guys exist so i thought i would stop by and say hi.

I like both series though GG a little more. I also like the fact between series they didint become stingy with game content. Both games have big story modes and good amount of single player content.

#39 Edited by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@finalfantasy94: @Gue1:

Guilty Gear Xrd's fighting system looks KICK ASS.

But two bad things I'm worried about the game:

1. It made Guilty Gear 2 canon, and that game MADE.NO.SENSE.

2. The music is somewhat bland, and that's saying something for God Ishiwatari

I looked up the character specifics on GG2 and for the most part it seems thigns make as much sense as they could for that game. Though I didint know ky and dizzy married and had a kid. Also on the music front I like the trailer song though I dont know how the rest of the music sounds.

#42 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@finalfantasy94: The story behind the gears and That Man got even more complex (if that was even possible).

Also, if you wanna hear the music, this channel has almost all the themes:

Has it been said if there will be any adding of characters for console release? Im disappointed at the lack of jam. In the previous games all I used was her ky and milla.

#44 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@finalfantasy94: They probably will add new characters, but what most people have seen is they added characters primarily from these groups

A. The Assassin's Guild

B. Primary characters from the past games that had a significant role in the story.

And a random character here and there like May and Axl.

I feel like story wise, Jam kind of had her fill as fighting wasn't really her life, while Axl still needs to go back in time and May needs to find out about her past (although, these probably changed considering the characters are six years older)

Yea thats true but still want her in. Shes a rare breed in teh game as in she doesint use a weapon. The only thing she uses thats magical is I beleive Ki and thats really it.In the end shes more hand to hand and I like that style. Also you can just make up a plot point for her. To be honest out of the two axl and may I find may the least interesting.

What's wrong with King of Fighters 13?

I assume you're not talking about KoF12, which is like the actual super shitty, what the fuck happened entry of the series.

#49 Edited by SonicNextGen2 (3424 posts) -

@jg4xchamp: No, I mean, KOFXIII is an AMAZING game, but every time I play it, I get sad at the fact SNK is basically dead.

@finalfantasy94: People complain about the Blazblue plot, they should play Guilty Gear.
