    Glad to see a charge character made the cut and is apparently pretty godlike. Can't wait to play some Mitsuru.
    Chie will also get some burn as she is my favorite character from P4.

    Okay, well that's the players fault for not doing research to begin with, right? I mean, if the person is so interested in the game, he would've at least considered doing some research before hand, and then viewing the stream.
    WRONG!! And if you think that, you're a fuckin' retard.

    GGPO (netcode).
    Also, it seems like Weeaboos tend to name things off the game. How annoying, they would do something like that.

    Here's my take on the subject.

    Many R-Actions are "Geese Counters". Which are not dragon punches. I just call the DPs DP and the rest "reversals".

    Things like this aren't a one way street. If you want someone to look it up you have to plant the seeds to get them interested first, which is where informative yet exciting commentary would come in.

    For certain specific R-Actions, "DP" or "counter" is appropriate, but there are others, especially those which work off of super armor and Elizabeth's which can't really accurately be called anything except reversals. Since there are sometimes other reversals (which don't have the same properties in terms of costing life or being impossible to OMC), having it called the character's R-Action makes the most sense by a wide margin. If commentators want to explain it as "B+D is the R-Action input - it's a universal reversal, but they all function differently", then that would be best. Beyond that though, it does make sense to have some standard terminology so people don't have to figure out what commentators are talking about on each new stream.

    R-Action for R-Actions as a whole, "DP" for DP type R-actions, "counter" for counter-type R-actions, "R-action" for other types.
    OMC, not RC, for One More Cancels (It says "1 MORE" on the screen)
    Guard Cancel for :f: A+B, not Alpha Counter or Dead Angle Attack
    Instant Kill / IK for Mortal Blows
    Super for SP Skills
    EX for Skill Boosted skills
    Cards, not "stand life" or "primers" for persona health indicators
    Persona Break, not "stand crash" for the Persona Break state
    Fate primers for Naoto's special meter
    Roll for whatever roll is actually called
    Hop for mini jump
    Instant Block, not Just Guard / Just Defend (wouldn't expect this to actually be an issue since it's an ASW game, but...)

    As you will notice, most of these are the official terms within the game or self-explanatory (much easier for people to understand "Super" than "SP Skill"). This should make it somewhat easier to look up exactly what they do if people have questions about how something works.

    Honestly though that's not a very long list.

    mmm nope.

    still functions as a reversal when they're close. holds it to heal.

    "yukiko used her reversal and she held it to heal herself!"

    "that was a great move if I do say so myself, commentating partner!"

    "verily!"

    Yeah, I got to play. The game is pretty damn fun, way more freeform than I was thinking. Doesn't feel as much like Blazblue as I was expecting, at least Aigis didn't.

    I didn't really know anything though, couldn't even remember how to get into or what to do in Orgia mode, so it was pretty comical. The hell do you do against Mitsuru? Is everything she does safe? And then reflector? What?

    This might be a stupid question but are you Dacidbro?

    Played the game a bit, game seems really medocre to me.Ffootsies are pretty much unintersting in any form due to abysmally low number of normals, flow feels weird, and some characters are dumb as fuck. Not bad but doesn't seem like the game for me.
    Are you right? Are you READY!?
  • SUPARNOVAXSUPARNOVAX 必殺技 Joined: Posts: 5,810 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    There's a little bit of footsie but plenty of spacing and zoning oriented play too though. Air and ground space is very important in these type of games. I didn't find it too difficult to get into it, the auto combos helped but only for like 5 minutes, and then you realize you want to learn a lot of wake up pressure and resets for big hit confirms.

    is clearly the superior config. I don't know why the default is a square, is that comfortable for anyone? My hands don't contort like that.

    i played tvc with square formation.
    People can say all they want about dat axe, but I'm still gonna be repping Kanji and that Brosuke.

    I might have found a place that broke the street date. Hopefully they still have copies left, gotta get ready for the wnf tourneys and Revelations. Time to take Elizabeth and Yu to the lab.

    you should try gamestops, this one said it was a soft release date and have been selling copies since they came in.

    No, but I get it a lot in streams. I was going by this name before I played fighting games. Doesn't help that we both play Captain America either, lol

    Got to try this game over the weekend at a local anime con (thanks to the iAirdash/BBPH folks). Actually, did more than just try, I actually got roped into helping demo the game on stage.

    Actually found myself enjoying the game, there's something magical about finding yourself at a situation where you know you need to go for some offense, and then actually being able to pull some offense off (even if it's just mashing A). That said, it helps that I picked up Mitsuru and that Anton (who is probably the most organized event/TO in the PI) taught me a few basic BnBs.

    On a related note, during the stage demo, we actually got some kid who was around 8 or 9 try the game. Next thing you know, after the stage demo, he's at the booth actually playing it.

    Persona 4 Arena transcends the FGC. It bridges together people from all walks of life.

    Gonna admit, this is the biggest reason that we're most likely gonna start running this in our local tourneys. Basically a blatant attempt to bolster attendance numbers and (hopefully) attract sponsors.

    Yeah not a bad idea at all. And the English version of Persona 4 Golden for t he PSVita is coming out in October. Persona fever is at a global high!

    Well, I'm happy people are enjoying the game, I remember people were worried it wouldn't be up to snuff back a little before the arcade release.

    Can't wait to play it come tuesday myself. I just hope I don't see any "dis game iz ayusssss" topics a week after release, lol.

    Another day waiting is done. BB3 (that subtitle is a pain to say/type) announcement did not damper my hype.

    Side note: Would be SWELL if Adachi would be a future fighter addition since we would have a clear cut-and-dry "bad guy" figure in the game (A shadow does not really count).

    Well, you have to remember PRISON CHANGED HIM, MAAAAN, so if you wanted evil Adachi again, it'd probably have to be Shadow Adachi.
