GGT 217 will work 3 jobs just to buy a PS4 and every launch title. It's worth it.

Okey dokey, I'll try that! Also, do you use any of the secondary weapons? I still haven't purchased one and I don't really use any of the launchers or grenades either. Should I? I feel like it slows things down too much.

Man, arguing with someone on Facebook about the Sony conference sucking and dude is seriously drinking the koolaid. He loved everything he saw and even thinks Braid is an important game. :lol:


I use launchers on helicopters.
I haven't used grenades much yet, but I think they'd work great if you get mobbed -- I think they basically stun everything so you could get an emergency zandatsu in to recharge and set yourself up to take on the rest.
I just bought the polearm and upped it to +1 damage. I love this fucking thing.

The only thing you need to know about Jonathan Blow: His games blow.

I still wouldn't mind a PS4 eventually, as it will go nicely with my Vita with all that "play any game remotely on it" stuff, if true.
However, there's no real fucking kool-aid to drink yet.
There are no real details on launch games, we haven't seen jack shit all of gameplay yet, there are no details on how they're going to structure PSN, no details on how to use PS3 games via Gaikai if you own physical discs, no details on price, etc.
It was basically "look, we exist, we're coming out later this year, stay tuned, and check out some early tech previews".
I don't know why anyone was expecting more.

Guys, we should make a bunch of GGTs so the stupid PS4 announcement threads disappear in this section.


Or we could just post in all of them.

Monsoon's Sais, buy them ASAP. They pull you into your enemy, your kick hits anything in your path, you can follow it up, and it has a chance to temporarily stun an enemy while glowing purple. I used that shit all the time against flying enemies and just to randomly stun bigger ones. You can still do all your command attacks that use the strong button like the stinger.

As for Grenades or Rocket Launchers, well... I guess you could use a rocket to shoot down the helicopter on the sundowner fight, but it just comes back after a bit. They just seem to be there for the sake of being there.

Do you have any idea what the "destroyed +100" i see sometimes is. I constantly try to cut off the left hand, but I'm not so great at it yet... wondering if this has a correlation.

Also, if you didn't use homing rockets to stun and bring down the helicopters in mission 01, how did you bring down the helicopters when you didn't have a high perch to jump off of for attacks?

Like in the "go kill the people who radio'ed for backup" optional fight (#1).

[Rocket launchers are also good for blowing up cameras that are hard to reach in mission 1 (for the trophy/achievement if you care)]

I was expecting at least one thing to make me want to buy it, but nope. And while I would agree there is clearly koolaid to be found if so many people are jizzing themselves over the press conference. Most disappointing thing ever.

Also, thanks! I'll buy it next time I play!

I... like this idea. We should spam them with Leda and MGR.

Sweetness! I like the idea of something that pulls me to enemies. That's been a problem for me with a few enemies. Will you be replaying the game on any higher difficulties? I'm considering it since aside from the Monsoon fight I haven't had any problems at all with the game.

Okay, that's basically what I thought. I've used Rockets on a couple of choppers, but I find that most of the time if I just slash in the air enough I'll hit them and that's more fun that fiddling with the Rocket controls.

Destroyed +100 just means you got 100 BP for killing the enemy in Blade mode. Pretty sure, at least. You'd get +50 or +100 extra pop ups in addition to the Destroyed +100 for cutting off their arms.

And I used them in that fight, but that's only one of the few. If you jump and just mash X you'll kind of float up to them sometimes, so that's how I've taken most of them out.

Did you buy the divekick yet?
If you say no -- did you not learn ANYTHING from your time in fighting games? :rofl:
It's probably not as good as the Sais, but you can jump, push your direction + triangle and basically get the DMC3 Ifrit divekick. I bought it immediately and the only aggravation it's been is when I was trying to kill the cameras in R01 for the trophy and I would get a divekick when I didn't want one.

That's truly hilarious.

I'm pretty sure I have. I'd have to check, though. I gotta be honest, I don't usually do much aside from parrying and beating the everloving Fuck out of everyone.

Also, you sold me when you compared it to Ifrit's Diverkick. That was one of my fucking favorite parts of DMC3. I'll deffs buy it if I haven't already! Any other advice?

Uraizen, have you used the Fox blade yet? I'm curious as to how awesome it is and I haven't got enough BP to buy it yet (I keep buying costumes and upgrades).

It's a lot like that divekick -- or like Vergil's starfall?
I don't know how it works for bringing people down to the ground and continuing combos, but it's a good entry point early in the game before you can get the Sais. I wish I could find some video footage of it for you. I think if Raiden was in UMvC3 somehow, it would be just like Dante's killer bee animation. :)

Do you have Fox blade because you have Grey Fox DLC? Or is that something that unlocks later?
And don't feel bad, I've dropped 30000bp on costumes (Inferno, MGS4 Raiden) and I'm in the middle of chapter 2.
I should probably up my life or my FC energy, but I keep buying the weapons and new moves. :rofl:
I want the new moves for the polearm, but I don't have the 18000bp I need. :whee:

It has a somewhat decent story with use able controls with a cheap price. If that shit was $60, nobody would have bought it.

the amount of choices and how they completely changed the course of the story...

I can get emotional, I cared about Carley and Clementine (though the sole reason was because she was a kid and the crux of the game, she really did not get much development), I wanted to beat the Fuck out of Lilly in that third chapter and I cried at the end. Maybe that's why I felt like I enjoyed it more than I actually did.

I always thought the choices didn't mean anything (and they don't). Shit, ME3 handled the series past choices better and people hate how that game handled the series past choices.

I don't know, I'll play the second season but...I don't know.

http://www.destructo...2--246170.phtml


I don't get why seeing the console now is such a big issue. Sony wanted to talk about the future of the company and it did exactly that. I don't recall Sony stating that they would show the console or even talk about the console, even though it was obvious that it was about the PS4. That Larry Hryb tweet is pretty hilarious though. Can't wait for the Kinect 2 reveal!

I personally loved The Walking Dead. Despite the choices not really changing anything major in the story, I loved talking about the game with friends who have played it. For example,
Spoiler
I mean, sure, it didn't change anything in the end, but the game played out a bit differently.

I cared about Clementine and did everything I could to make sure she was happy and was well protected. I feel the same way as Indignate, and feel like one of the only reasons I cared for her was because she was a child. I'd imagine that they didn't really develop her character as she more than likely will be appearing in Season 2, and with the ending of the first game, she might even play an even bigger role than in the first game. At least, I'm hoping she does.

Agree 100%. Gameplay is pretty lame (but to be fair I don't like point and click adventure games), but I love the show and comics so I loved the game for telling another compelling story in that universe and having some great characters.



As for PS4 I see nothing that excites me. I expect the same from the next Xbox. These will be pretty incremental upgrades in terms of graphics and gameplay compares to prior gens, and I worry about eye/Kinect stuff getting shoehorned into games.

I've got plenty to play on 360, PS3 and Wii so ill wait out the next gen for a price drop or two and see if I'm interested in any of the consoles then.
