You've basically said it all in more words than I could ever put down. It's a shame that a game like this ended up getting a fake of being an unkown "masterpeice" to say the least. Specifically in the context of today's gamers being nit picky about the dumbest shit.
If they did up the production value to FFXIII it probably would have warranted a sequel, but there's just so much about this game that felt like Square didn't even care. what's also more of a shame is how much of a cop-out the DLC was.
But I digress. just what makes me happy is knowing other people are giving themselves the chance to play the game all the way through.
MvC3? OH! it's great, I'm playing a lot of it... and planning to. My appologies to my Xbox friends, but Sony's online is the only thing I can afford right now. Maybe in it's future I will double up. It's inevetable right?
So what's so cool about this game? It's different, it's more of the same. Let's talk about it. I fit perfectly into the characters I know I wanted, Chris and Wesker basically. But Tron Bonne is a placeholder until Jill shows up. I like my RE characters a lot and I figure they should be my main. I'm slowly but surely learning how to use them and be less frantic about it. Of course the other two reserve slots are under debate. Captain America and She-Hulk are slowly becoming favorites... Arthur is also kind of neat to play too, if only for the novelty. I'm basically yet to scratch the surface on a lot of the characters.
It does come with it's problems based soley around my level of play. I know that there are some things I'm not very good at, pulling off combos, specificially air ones, and connecting the teammates into them. (which I have been practicing a lot lately, easier to pull off on the CPU) It gets frustrating with those that Spam supers, or are just plain faster than my 34 year old brain can handle. So before I collect my thoughts two of my characters are already down, and I just have to sit out before I throw the controller directly into the screen. I know, I'm a bad person for giving up with out a fight, but I've been known to break stuff in my hands (or, 'my hands') in times of rage.
So it's really weird to come out of the online experience and tell you straight up that I'm really enjoying this game. All and all I am competent and can win some, so it isn't exactly a loss. I wish I knew who I'd be up against before hand though, so there is some people I know I can avoid. You know, until I can get my skill up. Yeah, I get to be another one of those people that say Capcom can't match make for shit. :S
Now the TL;DL Portion of the show
So, Marvel vs Capcom 3 hey? That's quite the game. And that's pretty much all we talked about. YUP! Ossi, Sleepy_Insomniac and I talking about Marvel vs Capcom 3. Listen to us talk about JUST THAT. We talk what we like, what we dislike, the characters we use and OTHER things as well... if only briefly. Oh, and listen for the awesome music too.
Because it's awesome! DOWNLOAD IT HERE!(Ok, so I apologize in advance. I really don't know where I should be uploading these / have been a bit lazy to look. Podcast hosting spaces, Do you know of any?)
Also, this is Marvel vs Capcom 3. I don't know if you know this, but it's pretty much a big deal. Are you enjoying it? Any cool get togethers out there?
@Sleepy_Insomniac: I suppose I could, but I'd rather be going through these quizzes dreading what they may be. (my least favorite one, is obviously the 'memorize 25 numbers and where they are' exercise') I also don't really like there's that much variety to warrant doing that.
@example1013:I agree. That's probably my biggest complaint. Especially when you look at BA2 coming from the first game, and how much of the exercises they took out. Which obviously, it would be beneficial if there was a lot more. There's nothing to this cart, THERE'S A LOT OF SPACE TO FILL. SO WHY NOT GO ALL OUT?
@mracoon: That makes total sense, The second day into using Brain Age, I was pretty much convinced that I'm not really doing anything but the same exercises over and over and over! In time it's something I could just get used to and do habitually. That way the brain can go back to slacking off. I dunno, maybe this could serve better as a Program with a constant string of different challenges that are always changing daily. So it can always be fresh for your mind, AT LEAST.
