The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend - still too good for EVO.

    Oh god, Makoto's joke ending.

    Flawless.

    I wouldn't skip through any of it. BB always had great writing in the localization, and Extend's keeping that trend alive(though it does have a lot of lazy typos and grammatical errors).


    Halfway done with the new plots, and it's good stuff. Amazing how well they balance seriousness and absolute insanity(joke ends).

    That screenshot business is making me want a Vita pretty badly over here.

    I rearranged my button layout to the arcade standard. Can't believe I didn't realize it was messed up right away. I was destroying my hand playing it how it defaulted:

    A B
    D C

    Swapped to

    B C D
    A

    and its infinitely better, but I feel like I undid whatever muscle memory I had started to build playing earlier.

    Added everyone from the OP PSN list.

    I'm gonna give that a shot next time I'm on. I'm completely missing D sometimes when I go a while without touching it, so I might have better luck with that.

    I've noticed a fair deal of text that doesn't match what the actors are saying. There's this one joke line with Bang and his crew that's almost completely different, and a very obvious one every time you fight the final boss.
    Spoiler:

    Yes, the localization is really solid, and they do a far better job establishing the mythology and motivations for each character/fashion then they did with CT. But still, a lot of these scenes prattle for far too long, at least with the CT summary.

    Also, what's her secret? Seriously:

    As I understand it, the Azure Grimoire and the BlazBlue are effectively the same thing, though I could be wrong.
    (Make sure you get Makoto's bad end in CS, Kokonoe brings up that very same subject.)

    I started messing around with Noel. Trying out some of the missions and such.
    I sort of understand this game now. Kinda. Can anyone give me some tips on how to get a little better? I'd like to be able to at least beat the arcade mode. D:

    They are the same thing. The characters calling it that out of nowhere still doesn't fit. It would be like characters calling Sol, The Guilty Gear.

    Which of the female characters would be good for someone just trying to learn the game?

    Noel Vermillion. Her drive is a freebie chain combo button.

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    Yeah. Pretty much.

    But Noel is one of those easy to learn, hard to master characters.

    Because D drive spam becomes a lot less viable the better your opponent is and a lot of her better combos take pretty good execution.

    That being said, she'll get you by in the beginning.

    I was a fan of Lambda in CS. Unless she's gotten hard nerfs now, she's fun as hell when you can get her mixing up the ranged and melee right. That's talking from a casual level, of course. Makoto's also pretty straight-forward with most of her stuff, though you have to really master the mindgames with her squirrel techniques, and nail the Drive charge.

    But yeah, Noel is pretty easy to learn. Of course, she's also a total glass cannon if you're Drive spamming, since not only does it have openings, but a large portion of characters have something that'll get through even if the player doesn't have that timing down. All it takes is one projectile spam to the face, an Icecar or two, or just good old fashioned BANG SHISHIGAMI FISTS OF JUSTICE to clear up that Drive spam right quick.

    Platinum's gag ending was bad.

    Sailor Moon Abridged does it best!

    Good games, Blaze. I looked at the Tutorial tutorial mode, and have been learning from that, also worked on proper teching rather than mashing buttons.

    Relius path.

    At first I was like, why is he working with Kokonoe?

    Oh.


    Yeah. This is certainly a weird joke end.

    Off topic, but...

    Sailor Moon for the best team-based traditional.
    Cardcaptor Sakura for best solo traditional.
    Nanoha for a focus on battles and action, S3+ for adults/teenagers and teamwork, S4 manga for milfs, blood, war, and magic vs technology.
    Mai-Hime for team-based deconstruction and a wide age-range.
    Utena for absurd amounts of symbolism and people being fabulous.
    Madoka for oh god this is fucked up.

    Back to Blazblue. We getting any DLC Characters with Extend?

    Who knows? But so far, Extend is really teasing Jubei and Kokonoe a lot.


    Honestly I'm expecting they'll wait until BB3, which will have Jubei, Kokonoe,

    I'm not sure on what's the best part of the game:
    The joke endings or the "Teach Me Dr. Kokonoe" segments after the bad endings?

    Played the shit out of this game over the weekend. Managed to finish all of the challenges for most of the characters I'm interested in. Valkenhayn is such a beast now, I might even have to avoid using him too much against my friends. He really didn't need buffs.

    I really like how you unlock stuff the same was as the 3DS version. It doesn't take much time at all to get all of the colors and old system voices, although getting all of the unlimited characters takes a bit longer (if you even care about that).

    Okay seriously, fuck the Arcade boss. Unbelievable bullshit here.

    "Oh, what's that? You've unleashed a successful string of combos that depleted my health? Good for you! Oh wait, I hit you once and now you're either on the air or on the ground! Enjoy this unavoidable special that takes away 75% of your health! DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!!"

    Also, you know it to be true.

    Why so loli? -.-

    I should probably be getting this by the end of the week (earlier if lucky), but I won't be online any time soon due to my extreme lack of playing BlazBlue for years now, and thus being very prone to getting my clock cleaned easily. Training and Arcade modes, HO!
