    I always found that rumour weird. Looking at the wiki link a few posts up the only thing they say is it could be paid DLC later.

    Said wiki link is glorious by the way, thanks.


    Well 3rd strike online had an unlock code for gill if you preordered the game. Everything i've seen from neogaf and the exvs forum seem to point to it being an early unlock and not a dlc suit.

    Be kinda weird if they treated hi-nu so much differently then the other dlc suits, putting it in the strategy guide and letting people get it for free.
    Zing.

    Everything I've seen in Japanese refers to it as a first release DLC suit, period. ja.wikipedia has the same diamond beside it as Freedom, Arche, The O, and Gottralan, and all the articles speak of it in terms of "if you want Hi-Nu, you should pre-order".

    Unlocking it sounds like wishful thinking.

    Well then I don't understand why i've read so many people saying it was an unlock. :[

    Wish I could read Japanese. >_>

    I'm more fluent in google translate gibberish than Japanese, frankly.

    I'm guessing it's an expectation that because Hi-Nu will be added to the arcade version and because this is an tournament arcade game port they wouldn't lock people out of being able to get Hi-Nu. Making it paid DLC eventually seems to cover that fine from the standpoint of most publishers though.

    So I was looking at the archive of the SCR test stream and apparently this game is out. Also it's like $100 to import?

    Sadly that is a pretty accurate number. Minimally 2500 yen, likely 4000 yen of DLC if they only release one of the silhouetted units per month with a surprise one like for December in the pipe already too. Speaking of which
    http://www.b.bngi-channel.jp/gdexvs/download.html

    It's weird at the moment, because I understand the FvsZ/AvsT/GvsZ parts of the system, and the Virtual On elements added by putting in boost dashes, but the way they link together is something else. The amount of times I get trolled hard by looking for the end of a dash only for them to float away with jump inertia or get absolutely molested by melee because I'm not ready to sidestep is pretty crazy.

    Holy crap! Ali Al Saachez! :rock:

    But that $100+ (if you include DLC) is really making my wallet weep. :sad:

    For folks wondering about the netcode, it's absolutely amazing for this game. Game is pretty playable even with red bars i.e. really far/laggy. It's not quite the same as being closer but it's more than enough.

    Anyway, thanks to a long session, I have a ratio closer to 300/500 now.

    Tried the online today. The game netcode is very good. Was in a room of people from the US and Japan. Played very well.

    Ok, so interesting question. Capcom made this game... or something. All the machines and such, the previous entries in the series and such, they list Capcom on it. But thier name appears and dissapears in different itterations. The arcade original (Federation VS Zeon) had it, but the Dreamcast version doesn't mention it at all except on the back of the case it has a tiny Capcom logo. It doesn't even mention it in the credits. The PS2 version of that game had Capcom in the opening movie and that was it. This game, even though I've seen trailers and info with the words Capcom on them, the game is missing it completly. The game is way above Bandai's quality standards, so I'm imagining Capcom did most of the work, but gets no credit on the home version? Any info on this guys?

    This game in particular wasn't developed by capcom, it was made by an in house dev team with some ex-capcom employees in it.

    Heh, then I guess you're never going to play a Gundam game. I can't name any Gundam games with Nightingale aside from the G Generation games, and Super Robot Wars Alpha 2.

    I play them games with out Nightingale in it, it just Im not going to go out of my way to cop for this one for a number of reasons, I mentioned Nightingale simply because.....there Hi Nu, but no arch nemesis in Nightingale?

    Dats some bull fam, but if the game drops in the states i will cope it.

    Hi-Nu is popular, Nightingale is too but Bandai/Sunrise/Bamco/Banpresto just don't like it. Really weird.

    The Capcom name seemed to appear and disappear because it was a Capcom arcade team doing the original game but then Bandai being responsible for the upgrades and ports, as far as I can tell. I had forgotten they actually formed a dedicated team this time.

    im liking sazabi, tallgeese 3, and master gundam. i wish sazabi had a super though

    i wish i could play kshatriya but....i can feel the difference between it and the other 2500 suits :( maybe when im better at the game ill give it another shot

    whats the best use for xfactor? so far the only stuff i use it for is to tack on supers to the end of "combos" like gun > mash melee > xfc > super or if my suit doesnt have a super i just xfactor and mash my strongest attack.

    I don't think EX Burst adds enough knockdown limit for that to typically be useful. It would maximize damage in some cases though.

    What it does is well, basically burst (cancel out of hitstun), refill your boost gauge, refill most weapons (one time use can go either way, some refill some don't), increase your speed, increase your damage, reduce damage taken, reduce boost usage, increase weapon refill rate, and give you a slightly higher number of hits before forcing a knockdown generally. Trans-Am (big speed boost), G Gundam Hyper Mode (big damage boost), and one or two other MS' act a bit differently and a lot of them get another attack besides their EX Burst attack, like the melee extension on Susanoo.

    So say on Gunner ZAKU Warrior, your call Rey usages are really limited on the first life, but on the second life you can spam them pretty hard, then when you run out boost in really hard without worrying about gauge usage and activate EX Burst to get a new set and a full bar to keep you from having to land. Or if you're getting totally screwed by a combo you can typically burst out, although escaping isn't entirely guaranteed

    Nu has a MG, HG, and Heavy weapon HG, and Hi-Nu has two different HG kits and a MG. Nightingale doesn't have any official kits, the closest thing is a SD Sazabi that has armor that makes it look like Nightingale. Obviously, Hi-Nu seems fairly popular. I'm actually making my own HG Nightingale kitbash, but it's still not a hugely popular suit.

    Heh, speaking of Gunpla, my HG Nu HWS is coming in soon (and its my first Gunpla! yay).

    And I think Nightingale is getting its own SD kit soon.

    played a bunch of online matches today.

    im really trying to have fun with the game, but it's not happening

    the controls seem horribly unresponsive, like sometimes ill press the button for subweapon or something and...nothing comes out so i press it again and get a dash because the first input actually did register for some reason. or i'll try to cancel a dash and....nothing happens so i keep floating and lose all my boost meter. it goes on and on. it's like im fighting with the game to recognize my inputs.

    i feel like im missing something important because i was able to pick up VOOT really easily on the pad, but this game it's like ugh....

    i like the game, but i hate the controls
    [Help!] (´・ω・`)
  • DeltaKyakuDeltaKyaku terribad Joined: Posts: 704
    The annoying thing on pad is boost dash is like the highest priority input in the game, and the shoulder triggers are assigned to the macros that include the jump button (I could change this but I've played GvsZ like that so long and it just makes sense). As everyone knows said triggers are finicky buggers to it's easy to register two inputs, be unsure you got the press, mistime the press because of the deadzone, and all sorts of other stuff.

    Minor not entirely new control oddities are having to release any directions to jump out of a dash (this came up with air dashes in GvsZ, since there was only step on the ground and dash/transform in the air back then). The odd one coming from VO is that to change directions during a dash you had to go to neutral in VO but you have to move from the direction in this, although curving a boost dash is not all that important.

    Just got the game and am loving it. Its a little overwhelming at first because there are so many awesome Gundam's I don't know who to choose. I played a couple online games and there was zero lag. I couldn't believe it maybe it was a freak thing hah.

    If VOOT is ST, then Extreme Vs. is...some sort of air dash fighter I guess.

    One of the odd things about this particular version is they got rid of a ton of grounded stuff. Pretty much everything but projectile attacks that can be done while moving put you into an airborne state and uses the same animation now.. That means among other things typically higher boost consumption.

    Next set of DLC units are out, Katejina in the Gottolartan and Sirocco in The O. Both are pretty damn good units. Kate's unit is a ranged on with a lot of freaking beam spam. Very good damage and fast recharge but she has very low life and can be somewhat accident prone for a 2500 unit. The O is a general-purpose unit leaning on melee kind of like Infinite Justice, pretty nimble and solid damage.

    The next set of units have also been announced in Famitsu, Freedom and Zeong.

    BTW, Hi-Nu is available for free download when the Freedom and Zeong DLC comes out. So if you haven't picked it up yet, there you go!

    The way people have been doing it is by getting hubs, hooking them up to whatever internet they have at the current location and doing player matches via PSN. It works rather well and gamecenter in San Mateo recently had a tourney there with that setup.

    NorCal Install last weekend streamed that EXVS tourney. You can see it here from the 55 minute mark and runs just fine: http://www.twitch.tv/finestko/b/304852222

    TorontoTopTiers does the same type of setup at whatever arcade they do their tournaments at as well.

    in the meantime does anyone have a faq on how to get the dlc suits? is it as simple (or complex) as making a jp psn account, getting the points, then finding them in jp psn store?
