Think it would be helpful to have an IRC chan set up somewhere though, both for setting up games and mid-game communication. Wish this had MK7's community feature so getting something set up wasn't so cumbersome.

I would be interested in a league if someone set it up.

Totally didn't know this, thanks for the tip. I only recently discovered you could walk on the flying hydra after going back and watching the original KI:U reveal trailer from E3 a couple years back, but I didn't know there were ground portions I could run on.

Speaking of that trailer, Palutena sounds like a robot in it by comparison with how she sounds now.

That'll come in handy for some of the score achievements.

One thing I just learned is that you can do a dash melee attack by dashing forward and pushing backwards on the circle pad + the L button. It's useful for those times you can't risk getting too close to an enemy for the crosshair to change.

Huh. For the "Knock all guards in the trench simultaneously" I tried setting off a mega laser instantly, and saw all 4 fly up, then blasted the thing to death once the shield went down. And yet I didn't get the accomplishment. Huh. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

Also, what qualifies as a "dash melee attack" for the things that require beating bosses with it? I tried doing a dash forward and attack within melee range on Hades' Heart, but it didn't count.

Oh, and I'm now finding some serious hatred for "don't get damaged" things. They take feel sooooo long and then an enemy launches an unexpected attack or a bit of the environment taps you and that's it.

Increase aiming speed for both flight and ground to maximum speed for both horizontal and vertical. Also, increase the camera stopping speed to the maximum. BAM. Perfect control.

For sure! I think those were probably the best matches I've had in this game. You should stayed for at least one, though! But yea, I definitely want more rematches :)

Just to be clear, you want it so the camera stops on a dime. I just want to make sure I'm understood correctly. Your mileage may vary but it worked extremely well for me. Short, quick flicks to minutely and precisely adjust the camera on the fly. :)

Woa Light vs Dark is a terrible mess of a mode. How did this make it in it's current form? Unless I'm missing something - its possible I am, I just got the game recently - but how does one even distinguish who an ally and who an enemy is? It's also insanely unbalanced. And you die so quickly. I... can't wrap my head around it.

It's very hectic. You pretty much need a decent weapon and some good powers to be able to just survive. I would recommend the play dead or transparency powers if you want to not be targeted and taken out constantly when you're starting.

Try the local multiplayer with bots. You can get weapons this way too!

Enemies have brackets over their heads, and their text is orange instead of white, and they're either black or white, depending what side you're on.

It's a bit unbalanced, but you can land on teams with stronger people, so it balances out decently, IMO. I've enjoyed it as much as any multiplayer online game in ages.

Yah that probably has something to do with it. Remember, the weapons are the characters. When the match starts, take a look at that bottom screen to see what weapons your enemies are sportin. The weapon symbol shows up a lot sooner than the enemies name in red.

Hey GAF. Just wanted to chime in on how great this game is and offer my friend code for some multiplayer.

I believe you can steal multiple powers. Shocked by how many people keep jump in their powers list though.

BTW, for anyone making one-shot-kill weapons: found this out by accident while testing Libra Sponge and Aries Armor (which, by the way, stack EXTREMELY well: damage bonus for Libra Sponge is calculated before the damage reduction of Aries Armor, so you can get what's essentially 2~3x damage bonus while only taking miniscule amounts of damage): player life is 222pts for the first 2 lives only. From there players have some sort of DEF or health bonus kicking in. My bow does 263 front dash w/ power charge, from the third life on there's a good bit of life left on a player after getting hit. My guess is life's somewhere closer to 300, but I get the feeling you also get a hidden defense bonus when your health is low, so it's difficult to judge.

Went to two Gamestops, and got a pack from the first one I went to (nothing really happened there). There was an actual Nintendo Rep at the second store (he was there the day before promoting Spirit Camera). There were giant AR KI:U cards (Pit, Paluenta, Twinbellows, Medusa). They also had the strategy guide which included a Dark Pit (Flying) card. I didn't buy it though. Got some tags and three gems. Even had a chance to try out local multiplayer for the game. Won a few times, but I managed to complete 10 games to unlock the treasure for it before my system ran out of power. The rep said he would be back at the store in a few weeks

Man, I finally got a weapon with Defense +7, and it's soooo helpful for the Boss Rush. Now I just need to fuse it with some +Health and +Shot Range for the ultimate Magnus Club.

Edit: Hmm, does Shot Cancellation work in the flight sections of the game? Seems like a good way to cheese those... I'm trying to figure out the ultimate level clearing weapon. Aside from Heart Bonus +3, I'm not quite sure what to have.

For the booster pack got 4 weapon cards and 6 underworld army cards.
