The PS3 MvC3 Community Thread

#1 Edited by gosukiller (2325 posts) -

This thread is the continuation of the PS3 SSF4 Community Thread. It will largely take over the roll of that thread, except it will be centered around MvC3 instead of SSF4. Don't hesitate to match-make SSF4 matches here though, I know that we will have alot of SSF4 players going over to this game. That being said, this is a MvC3 thread.  You can find our 360-counterpart made by EpicSteve over here.
  

Purpose of this thread:

This thread is meant for the PS3 community to discuss everything that's relevant to playing MvC3 on PSN. That being said, you don't have to limit your discussions to MvC3.

The thread can be used to organise matches with other players, organise Endless Lobbies or even feel the waters for a Giant Bomb tournament.  
 
To anyone who wants to join our group on the PLAYSTATION 3:
Skill-level is all over the place, so don't hesitate to join if you think you will get your ass handed to you. We all had to learn at one point, and most of us still are.  
 

When and where?

Do not worry about your timezone, both the US and Europe are heavily represented. That being said, the busiest hours are between 18:00-01:00 GMT
 
The PS3 community gathers in a text chat called Legit Text Chat and usually Endless Lobbies form based on this chat  
 
If you want into the Legit Text Chat, add these people and they will set you up.
  

PSN name- Giant Bomb name - Location

Do not ask to be added. Frequent players will be added in due time.     

 

Add these, currently, 11 people to your friendslist.  These users will invite you to the "Legit chat" that we use, where you will meet more players you can add to your friendslist.

@VicRattlehead: Sorry about that. I just added the people I was 100% sure off would buy MvC3.

@Pessh: Edited my original post. Consider Rice dead to me. 
 
Edit: Okay, I've got a massive stack of old/not-so-old games that I'm going to go sell tomorrow. How much do you guys think I'll get? 
 
Dead Space 
Brotherhood 
SF4 
MW2 
ACII 
Skate 
Strangelhold 
LBP 
Resistance 2 
Smackdown vs Raw 2009 
Blazblue CT 
KZ2 
Mercenaries WIF 
DMC4 
Fifa 11 
 
Definitely only getting like 1 pound for at least a few of those.
#9 Edited by Pessh (2459 posts) -

Hasibdbdbdbdbdbdbbdbdbdbd is getting it but not until April or something. Maybe Rhaknar will be back? not sure what console he's getting it on. Starvings a PS3 dude, the guy who keeps pasting threads from SRK. Bound to be an influx of new scrubs too.
 
Thursday can't come soon enough, will definitely do some more tournaments, and I'll try and get this shit stickied.
 
@GetEveryone: lmao

#10 Edited by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

Rhaknar PSN Portugal
 
seems like the sf4 crew is getting back together
 
edit: "maybe"ill be back? fuck YOU P, as if i wasnt all over this with how much ive been posting the last few weeks :P Starving is in the US on psn but i dunno his tag (or do I...hmm)
 
another edit! : with no spectator mode, we should ressort to smaller lobbies this time, like 4 max. Although to be fair, i got quite bored when we did our 8man lobbies, even with spectator, so i always prefer smaller lobbies

#11 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

In case y'all forgot, my PS3 is broken and I can't spare the money to get it replaced, hence me getting it on 360. 

Besides, I don't think I'd want to play this game in US-to-Europe lag

#12 Edited by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@GetEveryone: Enough. Should get a fair bit for Brotherhood and CoD.
 
@Rhaknar: Never disbanded lol. We all still play.
#13 Edited by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Rhaknar: Sorry about being a no-show the other night, Rhak. I'll be game for some SSF4 in a couple of hours if you're keen. 
 
Can't wait to get some MVC3 games on with you guys. They need to get that lobby shit fixed ASAP.
#14 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@Rhaknar: Wasn't sure what console you were getting it on is all  
 
I'll probably spend a lot of time in training mode at first but yeah no spectating is ass

to be fair dude after that night i was a no show myself, i just dont have the patience for sf4 anymore. Im not bashing the game in any way, and lets not turn this into some sort of war, but yeah, when you didnt show up i played around 20 or so ranked matches, won about half as usual, and the game just isnt for me. Maybe AE will change that, since i hear its a much more offensive, rushdown centric game, but I'm just not a a patient player, i always crack and go crazy, which is why i think marvel will be much better suited for me. 
 
If there is a arthur on the other side spamming projectiles all over the screen and i cant get in, i can respect that. If there is a character on the other side waiting to punish honda headbut with a jab, or wait until jaguar tooth to jump back and roundhouse, that just annoys me, since im "that" guy who always snaps and goes for it lol. Dont get me wrong, thats totally me being a shitty player, hence why im not bashing or blaming SF4, but its also why I think Marvel is much better suited for me.

didnt we have a couple of US dudes in the group, i dont remember much lag. then again i havent played in a few months so /shrug
#17 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -
@Rhaknar: It wasn't completely unplayable but (S)SF4 is much slower than this game. If I still had a working PS3 and more money I'd probably consider going both.
#18 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Rhaknar: I know exactly what you mean, man. As much as I like SSF4, I get really tired of it and how clinical it is at times. Working my way in and doing a bitchin' combo only to eat something half-assed and be at equal health. I have so many gripes with that game. 
 
...still likely to play it a lot, though :) 
 
It'll be awesome to be able to mix things up with something as bugfuck crazy as Marvel.  
 

1 WEEK!

...and counting.
#19 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

1 week... im going to be honest with you, if I dont get my copy from amazon on the 18th, im going to be severely bummed out that weekend... im paying 28 fucking quid for next day shipping (UK to portugal). thats almost as much as the game. Also, I work the graveyard shift these days, and that night from the 17th to the 18th is gonna be a looooooooooong one, im gonna be checking the fucking tracking on the package every 10minutes >_>

#20 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

1 week? I thought it was 4 days.

Seriously though, that's rough.

@Rhaknar: dude wtf...

" @Rhaknar: dude wtf... "
wtf at which part? be spending 27quid on shipping? :P
#23 Posted by benjaebe (2784 posts) -

I'll be complete ass at the game since I'm not really used to anything but BlazBlue, but I'd love to get some people to scrim against anyway. My PSN is SomeBENICILLIN. American.

#24 Edited by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@Rhaknar: Yeah I'm not paying much more than that for the game and should be getting it a day early. Can't you just pick it up from a shop or something?
 
Does no read anymore? christ...

we get games weeks after here in portugal, especially in my little town. Funny thing is, even with that steep shipping, it still comes off at the same price if i bought it in a store here (new games cost 70euros here lol).
 
dude I bought a new fucking 40inch tv for my bedroom for the game, 27quid on shipping is small potatoes....DAT HYPE CONTROLS ME P :(
#26 Posted by Gaff (1882 posts) -

Hm. I know at least one shop here on the mainland that broke street date. What do kids call it? Mahvel, baby?

And... 1,5Gb required install. Damn it.

#27 Edited by gosukiller (2325 posts) -
@Rhaknar: I feel you. New games in The Netherlands also cost between 59.99 and 69.99. For some reason Dead Space 2 costs only 59 while Little Big Planet costs 69. Thank Spaghetti for UK webshops where newly released games never cost me more than 40 pounds.
 
Then again, I haven't bought a fully-priced game for 7 years. Last time I did that was Half Life 2.  
 
Which, ironicly, was very much worth it.
#28 Edited by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

I saw dead space 2 in a store the other day... 71.49euros new baby! I can get it for like 45 shipping included from amazon (hell amazon has free shipping to portugal these days, free normal 3-day shipping that is, but still) 
 
but anyway, we getting off topic here! So whos changing their character select screen to Take You for a ride? :P

You can do that? 
 
Also, I am so done in with SSF4. It just pisses me off whenever I play it now...

oh ye of little information...
 
  
    
    
  
You can even choose from 3! :P the second is terrible, i'll probably go with the first, but the third isnt bad. you can also choose to have character themes or stage themes during matches, and go back to using the choir "aaah" sound when you do lvl 3 hypers (by default its gone for some reason)
#31 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -

That is actually awesome! Definitely hitting settings as soon as I turn it on. "Gonna take you for a ride... dadada da da." 
 
So, the 360 thread got stickied...

#32 Posted by VicRattlehead (1400 posts) -
@GetEveryone: FAVOURITISM LETS START A RIOT OF SOME DESCRIPTION... caps lock so you know im serious
#33 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -
@gosukiller: If you haven't already you should ask for a sticky, the 360 thread got one already.
#34 Posted by Killroycantkill (1423 posts) -

Obviously I'm the most important since I'm at the top of the cool people list. But man I can't wait. Get ready for my 100% capcom team of Dante, Amaterasu, and Hsien-Ko. Gonna RIP IT!
#35 Edited by gosukiller (2325 posts) -
@Killroycantkill: This is not the cool list. This is the Canadian list. Obviously you are the most tragicly Canadian of all of us.

How does one go about doing that? I've tried getting the SSF thread stickied several times by asking lordofultima but never got any response.

@gosukiller: Well Loltima can't be pumping iron with both hands and moderate a forum at the same time now, can he? :|
#37 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -

ZombiePie stickied us, specifically asked him so that's probably why it took a little longer.

#38 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

#40 Posted by mikeclark1982 (9 posts) -

#41 Edited by gosukiller (2325 posts) -
@mikeclark1982: If you would read the OP you would see that there is also a 360 version of this thread. 
Glad you're so hyped for this game though :) 
 
@Pessh: Thx pessh, can always count on you.
#42 Edited by M_33 (527 posts) -

Pre-Ordered CE since they put em' out. Hype it up! I'll be on probably everyday when it releases.  
 

#43 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -

Fuck sake people, he's not adding you to the list, you add the list, play with them for a few years and then you get added.

DUDLEY AND CAMMY FOR MVC3 (on topic)
#46 Posted by gosukiller (2325 posts) -
@StarvingGamer: There might be some other regulars coming over from SSF4 that play in the US.  Ogaitnas, Siroptimus and Mabans might get into MvC3, but I'm not sure.
#47 Posted by StarvingGamer (8555 posts) -
@gosukiller: Mmm well if my shitty American internet can handle it, maybe I can try to play with you guys anyways since I'm usually on from 18:00GMT-21:00GMT anyways.

Was Mabans ever a regular? I vaguely remember playing him once or twice... 
 
Might have been around when I wasn't really playing, though, I guess.

god im glad this game has no shortcuts, that might have been the worst part about sf4. lost count of the times i whiffed random 360 grabs because i was trying to do a slide with Hakan, i would have probably mained him with no shortcuts
