Senran Kagura Estival Versus Import |OT| We All Worship At The Church Of Yumi

The new stories are quite intresting ... Haruka "new virus" infesting everyone and leaving yumi in charge of cleaning the mess was excellent ..Espcially when asuka was calling homura a crab

"All this blushing", lol

EDIT : OMg the daidoujin/rin dual story ..

" why do you introduce yourself this late ?" << my sides i can't ....
 
Asked on GameFAQs and got an answer...and can confirm you can play by yourself on PS4. Just press triangle on the empty player slots, then use R1 and L1 to set the CPU!

Also when I tried this, I was able to do launchers and air combos. Don't get why this didn't work when I played with someone else online. Weird.

It's too bad there isn't a split screen mode. I would be happy with just 2 players at 30fps, if that's what it takes. Or even a LAN option.

Split-screen would have been fun, yeah.

I'm getting destroyed on that second OVA-related mission (playing on hard). I only have Asuka at level 18, so I guess I need to grind a bit.

both missions are very demanding in term of how you deal damage because it's a mean 3 vs 1 .. and they are relentless even in normal difficulty. My asuka Was lv 31 so i managed but yeah ...

Should be doable at lv 25 if you don't get hit in the middle of your combo too often.

Yumi is my biggest problem on that stage. I start doing combos and then ICE ICE ICE ICE, lol.

I rush the other two and keep her for last.
Getting ICED and then i get a combo by the 2 others is kinda something you wanna avoid.

TIPS: there is a crate near the passage to the other area ( blocked by the level ) , you should find a mech in there. USE IT.

if you're stuck i'll do a vid and shar- OH that damn lock is still there dammit.

Lol. You can still record, copy to USB and upload to youtube though. Say, can you even share direct to youtube? Probably not.

I wonder how Gaming.youtube will be about games like EV. wanted to stream the game but still haven't.

That's what i did last time .

Well if you can wait a little ( about to go to sleep ) i'm gonna record something tommorrow morning and upload it on youtube afterwards.

And no we can't share anything at all ..it's CONTENT PROTECTED ..
 
OK the vid is there.
As you can see, leaving yumi next to the others allow her to interrupt your moves so i moved to the side in order to separate her from the other 2.

Also inclued the place to find the mech in order to gain some space if you're pressured too much.

PS: this vid contain No pupupuru finishes.

Done on a Old save with an asuka LV 25.

Enjoy?

Thanks for that, but it was all a matter of grinding for me. I never did do Asuka's story (LOL Grandpa Hanzo body-snatching!), so after going through that on hard, I wound up at level 36 and had much less trouble taking out the other characters in that new mission.

I can't use the mech for shit, though. It blows up so quick!

GUYS. They finally let me out of the dungeon.

I've been lurking for the past month but obvs was banned. So.

Few things.

1. I got my squishy katsu. http://i.imgur.com/DUb4onf.jpg

2. Ayame is fucking incredible.

3. I lost my password to my JP account so I uh... bought Estival Versus on a second account. So...thats weird.

4. I got way into Hyperdimension Neptunia over the last few weeks. So I need to track down that community thread.

I love what they did to Yumi in EV. Her ice princess mode is pretty awesome. I find it awesome that to fight the Yoma master ninja also become kinda youma like. Homura becoming the princess of flame, Yumi becoming a Yuki-onna, Miyabi being some kind of fallen angel type thing.

I hope they go full GG and BB with the lore things. I'd love a audio and just regular novel to accompany it. Sad to see that the EV thing did not have the dark alternate reality some implied. It would have been much more awesome to have an alternate Danzo fucking around.

I actually really don't like the "super" modes for the main girls. They look cool but I find them lacking in actual practicality.

I find Homura's very practical if you bake it into a combo or ona extra tanky situation where you bust it out and go ham. If they do iterate on it more I think it should be redone to make them actually super. Make it like how Majin Dante was to be in DMC2 and DMC4.

MOst of them are too fast not precise ..and since your time with it is limited , most player ( me included ) don't bother. Yumi Square x2 attack in that mode , does a slide side dash totally ruining any precise move you might have wanted to do unless you have a lot of practice..

BOth All 4 modes are awesome.

They just need to iterate on the forms for the next game or hell even patch n some content where you can use them for a bit more time.

Still haven't played the patch yet...it's surprising how difficult it is to pry certain disks from the console, I don't want to take out RPGs until I'm REALLY done. Really wish digital + physical were a viable option. I'd even pay a minor sum extra. I'd never sell the extra copy but I know many would, hence why they don't do that...

G3. I lost my password to my JP account so I uh... bought Estival Versus on a second account. So...thats weird.

Good lord, keep better track of your passwords! And if I rebought it'd be physical personally, no password can keep that from you. I always make sure to sign in and save my PSN/ect credentials at least once in Chrome (synced to cloud) so I have 'em worst case. I just had to do that not because of a lost password, but because I forgot what email I used for my JP xbox login.

and as for Neptunia I see you've found your way, welcome!

Well, lvl 5s are certainly 1000x more practical than they were in Shinovi, that 25% health requirement was asinine. I've been forcing myself to use level 5s and they're very fun, but I only ever have enough ninpo for them whenever I level up and get full stocks again (which is a broken and annoying mechanic, but at least it lets me see level 5s).

Personally I would prefer if level 5s were drug down ot level 3 and nerfed somewhat where necessary. Spamming level 1 and 2 is way too easy and way effective with most characters, especially since a lot of characters can basically dodge someone else's super by wasting a level 1 if you know it's coming and haven't been hit yet.

Also, whenever using a transformation, don't waste the "burst" they all seem to have as an attack, make it your first hit. Though, embarrassingly, I've KO'd people with the burst and not gotten to use the form at all that battle...

Neptunia has a similar problem with it's transformations though (recently) they got a lot cheaper to use and started automatically putting you in transformed state for combat. Neptunia U (the SK style game) also helped by having an equipable item that fills your transformation gauge at the start, and a "cheat code" option that just puts you in transformation at all times. Even as a postgame-only, no trophies unlock sort of thing that would be fun to add in.

Menus are still too confusing for me... and I have no idea how to change costumes on a non-Gessen girl.
The way the dressing room works this time is that you can select up to 5 girls to edit in the dressing room and also pose for pictures ect...

At the main Dressing Room Menu there should be 3 options. First option is to go to the dressing room itself. Second option is to go to the diorama/photo mode. Third option is to pick what girls are selected. So click on the third option then pick a slot then replace the current girl with the one you want to edit. Hope that helps.

I'm sure the next iteration will have made the super modes solid. Gonna needed it if we are out of the school and them being professional ladies.

Yeah I don't know what I was thinking I used a stupidly hard to remember password. To make matters worse I went to recover it and then realized it wouldn't let me reset it until I punched in the birthrate I entered which...I didn't know. So yeah expensive mistake. But I made sure to take ample note of everything this time.

I just put my real birthdate in those things. The risk of them knowing my age is way way more acceptable than losing access to an account.

now security questions I fill with garbage and I record what garbage I put in. Hate security questions, awful practice.

Ah I see! That'll be helpful. I'm definitely going with all blondes + Murakumo.

I also love Crimson Homura. They need to balance super modes around her. Even though in the story she's gotten better so that mode is getitng much better. Also it's her Super Sayajin 3 mode.
That was her inspiration

Can I get a cliff notes of how to use the new features, especially the tower defense mode? I launched the game and have no idea how to find anything but the character I can't buy without a japanese PSN card

Oh, I found the new side stories...it's only two?

They added some Dual Side stories which are basically tag team girl heart missions but I think those just came by default in the patch but yes the actual DLC is just missions designed around the OVA for EV.

Unless I was blind, it seems like before this patch everyone has the same "partially stripped" animation and now they're unique to character? IIRC everyone had a generic "look embarassed towards screen" thing and now I just saw Yomi and Mirai do unique "cover the crotch" sort of things

You got it backwards--the 2 OVA things are in the patch, the other tag team matches are free DLC. Not...really sure why, just patch both in lol

Ayane stuff:


Nice little touch on her gameplay.
 

Zonic

Took me a while to realise what was different, & then found it a nice little touch. Stuff like that really helps show the dedication they have to making a character for a crossover.

I like the idea of the starting prompt change.

I wanna see a gameplay vid soon
Here ya go.

......wait, isn't that the old gameplay trailer? I remember questioning the car dropping out of nowhere, but it says it was uploaded today on Marvelous' official site.
 

Zonic

I'd imagine Daidouji & Rin will be part of the disc release, assuming we get the latest version. But otherwise, the cross-over DLC characters will very likely stay DLC. Would be neat if we got an edition of the game where we got everything included, or forms of season passes (one for characters, another for costumes).

That Get Ready thing is neat. I want to play Ayane but I'm going to be getting the English version too so I don't want to buy DLC. Wish DLC was cross-region. Even if I still had to pay in Yen I'd be fine with buying it now.

It's why I said half cross region. Even though for my Oneechanbara import copy I can see the western dlc I should test that out... Doubt it will do much though.

Eh, horrendous loading time aside, a Vita is all I got, so I'll deal with it.

Another question: I was looking on the site, and it says the Festival lasts eight days. That's not eight days total right? Is it eight days per school, or does each day have various missions?
