I'm glad this game is getting ripped a new one. There's no excuse for them to release a Gundam Vs. game in the state that this title was released in. I'm not going to buy it unless they patch in more modes and online multiplayer.
It's too bad that the modes appear to be so thin, but If Extreme Force mode is substantial enough and long, then it should be enough to tide us over.
Curious to hear impressions of playing with a stick on a PSTV, I would suspect it feels the same but I'm nervous.
Google Translate tells me that he thinks the thing won't let you take the survey until you finish the game, but that's not true. There's a serial code in the game's manual (just checked my digital one) that will let you take the survey. I think the survey just asks you to please play the game for 5 or more hours before you take it.
I tried hooking up my Qanba last night, it didn't take. Would be nice if it did! Maybe I'll try it again. There's also no way to manually set each button in the software, so depending on your preferred layout you might have a little trouble.Curious to hear impressions of playing with a stick on a PSTV, I would suspect it feels the same but I'm nervous.
Unfortunately, around 3-4 hrs to finish this mode; around 10 hrs to get Platinum trophy...
LOL. I feel like the English version of this game is being "sent to die." I don't understand why this wasn't a portable version of the latest arcade game, with online play, with this new mode added in. That would have made sense.
Because they're still making money hand over fist from the arcade version. Maxi Boost won't hit consoles until a while after they release the next arcade game.
'Not what it once was' is pretty vague. Maxi is doing very well in Japan.
As a single player game and because of its pedigree, the gameplay experience is waaaaaay more polished than the Gundam Battle series and Gundam Breaker. It doesn't have that jank you expect to have when playing those games.
"Not what it once was" as in shrinking. More Arcades have been shutting down.
Source? I know there's an update that came out in October.
That's not really saying much. How does it compare to Gundam Musou?
The gameplay is much more solid than GM and I love the GM series. It's still EXVS at the core. GM is a button masher at its finest. Battles are obviously at a much smaller scale than GM, but there's much more finesse to Force because of it.
It's like comparing God of War to Devil May Cry.
I guess they don't go into any more details than just listing the top 5?
That's cool, looking forward to seeing what you think after playing some more.
Reading that the game can be completed in 3-4 hours and it being a single-player only affair has still has me skeptical. I was ready to import this and now I'm holding off to see what people think about it after a week or so.
I was just wondering for the folks who are playing this on their PSTV. Will the PS3's DS3 or Sixaxis work with the game or do you need to use a PS4 controller for it? One of the video was something, but never clarified. Thank you in advance.
this is differant then the fighter games from the psp isnt it? i remember i had one callded gundam breaker i think? not sure. really want to support this game because it may be our only chance of getting gundam games in the west
And finally the one thing that did piss me off was the sudden price drop on amazon which is a big fuck you to those who actually preordered the game ahead of time. I dont mind price drops when they happen at least a month after, but a few days after release? Yeah thats bad business for all parties involved.
Isn't that more just a retailer reaction? Big shipment which they were probably expecting to sell through in the coming weeks, but negative reviews and (probably) a lot of used copies already. I mean yeah, it definitely does suck, but I can't see much Bamco can do about it.
As for the reaction - I'm still very interested in the game based on all the impressions I'm getting. I can see why you'd be pissed if you were expecting a multi-player Extreme Vs. game, but for what it is it seems neat.
Btw, who's developing this?
I wonder if my Zudah is in the game. lol
In the mean time just using Barbatos
Amazon.jp gonna amazon.jp I guess
Well, it's not like they could release FB PS3 right now, since that one is 2 years old and everyone that wanted to play it has done so by now.Same here.
It's a type of spin-off nobody really asked for, has a pretty poor roster and doesn't even have the baseline modes that people were expecting to have.
Yet, this is the title that Bamco decides to "surprise" fans in the West with. And I thought Digimon All-Stars was the worst recent example of sabotaging a franchise's hopes in the West.
A bunch of effects and shit had to be cut back for the PS3 releases of vanilla and FB, Vita would catch itself on fire trying to run MB.LOL. I feel like the English version of this game is being "sent to die." I don't understand why this wasn't a portable version of the latest arcade game, with online play, with this new mode added in. That would have made sense.
Yup, even if it isn't up to the usual VS standards, it's definitely on the upper tier of Gundam games.Some early impressions:
- If this didn't have the EXVS moniker, this game wouldn't probably be getting the same flak it's getting. As a single player game and because of its pedigree, the gameplay experience is waaaaaay more polished than the Gundam Battle series and Gundam Breaker. It doesn't have that jank you expect to have when playing those games.
Damn, the game is gonna bomb so badly it'll leave a crater worthy of a colony drop.
I guess we could change it to "It's true. All of it. The reviews, the localization. They're real." to keep the TFA referencesShouta pls change title to "The Amazon reviews...they're true.....all of them..."
Start button skips!- Well, at least the lolitwins are speaking, so I can have *some* idea on what's going on.
- I don't really care though! Next, next, next...
