Platinum available for download on XBLM

#1 Edited by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Well, it's been a long road, but Platinum is finally available. She is 560 MSP and like the other downloads comes with all the alternate colours and the unlimited version.

I gotta say though, as a PS3 BlazBlue player I am totally unhappy because the store is down! First time I've been affected to a point where I want to cross my arms and pout :p

Also, System Version 1.03 is available to download as well and is needed to play ranked matches. I haven't been keeping up with the changes but hopefully they are favorable to Lambda. Good news is that it seems that PS3 players will still be able to receive the balance patch even though PSN is down.

Curse you CS2 Tao, I cannot play you for the life of me.

Wait...like now now? Fuck, I might have to use this excuse to rekindle my interest in the game for another week or so!

After I fought against a Platinum I went "Yep, this is an anime fighter."

I don't know whether your being a fighting game snob about that or not.

I am not.  Nothing against anime fighters, she just has a complete mahou shoujo vibe.

Speaking of anime fighters, I really wish Melty Blood came to XBL and PSN.

Well, after seeing pictures like this of Platinum, you can't really avoid the description whether or not you like this game. Of course, what little I've seen of Arcana Heart 3 blows it out of the water.

Damn those Carl CS2 combos, holy hell. On the flip side, Squirrel combos are straightforward and easy.

Platinum seems a bit complicated with item specific combos. This will keep me going for a while before AH3.

Platinum has been quite fun to play so far. She'll be a good sub for my new and improved Noel!

I can enjoy the silliness of anime. For instance I didn't really know what I was getting with Arcana Heart but when Heart said she "Saved Japan with the ultimate power of Love" I was totally down. Love and Justice. It's all I need.

If Platinum has something silly about Love or Justice then I will be so much more interested.

Along with the CS2 update. Mmm... Just in time as I set everything (well... Excluding my PS3) up in my house. The time has come again for me to don the fedora and scheming grin.

@Sasran: The question about the patch, if the patch servers are enabled where is the 1.03 patch for BB:CS on PS3 I haven't seen it at all :| maybe it's just me...
#14 Posted by animateria (3265 posts) -

I hope they print a disk with everything in it.


Because I'm pretty sure the console versions and all the DLC cost more than the handheld versions that have all the content.

I mean sure it's just handhelds, but it's just weird to have them be the complete versions of this game.

No, it's not just you. I just started it up a few minutes ago and it didn't download anything but I did then play MvC3 and it did download a patch, so I guess it just isn't out yet.

@Sasran: Ah, thought so thanks anyway. I hope Aksys does release it case I want to get some practice in 1.03 AKA BB:CS2

7 bucks for one character? Holy shit.

The original game was like $40 though. Measure that up against Capcom's $60 MvC3 with $5 a pop for a character and lack of features, it doesn't seem so bad.

maybe relatively, but when I think about what I usually spend five dollars on, one character seems like robbery to me. 12 characters in the original 60 dollar game is still 5 bucks a piece when you don't count all the stages, coding for their online mode, and the story mode. By that standard, one character is not 7 dollars worth of work for them. Not trying to shit on Arc System Works because I think they do a great job, I'm just against DLC price gouging.

Yeah, no doubt. I wonder what has been changed with Lambda. I played for the first time in months and I was able to get to Hazama in arcade mode in Hell only losing to Tsubaki (with 2 rounds) so I feel pretty into BlazBlue right now.

@Sasran: Hopefully this should help
  
  From the looks of it, BBCS2 patch (Patch 1.03) has upped several characters (Noel YAY!) and replaced other stuff. Also it seems to have sped up characters (not sure if all...) and combos are, well, combos...
EDIT: Mind you this is the PSP version but its the same thing (probably), and that is some interesting Air juggling if you ask me

Wow, I have a boner right now. I have no idea how I will learn all that but I want to. I would want them to patch in bonus challenges so that I could learn it in the game. Also, I see more ways to hit with QCF+C that I did not know before.

@Sasran: lol well then I'm glad that video helped you (in an awkward way of answering...) but Good Luck Have Batman, while I work on my Noel, and Mu-12/Lambda (lolz)

I wish they had a demo for her. The other DLC characters are my favorites, and I'm kind of interested in Platinum but... I also kind of feel like I have all the characters I need. What difference can one character make anyway? What are the odds that I'll like her more than my current favorites?

#26 Posted by DocHaus (1378 posts) -

Finally got a chance to try out the patch last night. Noticed that someone edited the majority of the Challenges because a bunch of the old combos just won't work anymore. Still unsure if I feel like spending money on Platinum, though.


Also, ranked matches on XBL are still a ghost town as far as I can see. Tried a Player Match only to find how rusty I really am.
#27 Posted by Ghost249 (250 posts) -

By any chance does anyone know when 1.03 for BBCS(PS3) is going to be available?

#28 Posted by MideonNViscera (2252 posts) -

I just got this 2 days ago. Really fun fighter. Story mode is agonizing, but I'm half done now.

#29 Posted by Ghost249 (250 posts) -

So originally the patch 1.03 was due to be released on the 12th of May, if so WHERE THE HECK IS IT?!?!?! it's the 15th and NOTHING has yet to ask me to patch my game :|

#30 Posted by Vade (393 posts) -
@Ghost249: It's listed with the DLC stuff. Free patch, 700 MB or so. Platinum for few bucks and another 700 MB.
#31 Posted by Ghost249 (250 posts) -
@Vade: umm, thanks for the info, but I don't see how that helps with whenever it is going to be released on PS3

So far, I'm hearing around the 19th is whenever 1.03 is going to be released on PS3
Platinum is $7.99 (like the other two DLC characters)
#32 Posted by Vade (393 posts) -
@Ghost249: I could download 1.03 just fine on PS3, so dunno what's up.
