    Should we be surprised that Arc has finally made a licensed fighter that isn't balls to the wall broken?
    Not only this; it's better balanced on its first iteration than Blazblue on its fourth.

    CT was the most broken but most fun (unless you're a Tager player). Sucks because after CT, it was never the same.

    But hey, dat Persona 4 game comes out tomorrow. Anyone super ultra mega excited?
    All I do is draw naked birds all day.

    I had fun playing Tager in BBCT. In other news, yes.

    There were a couple matchups I hated in Carl (lol 9.9 - 0.1) and Rachel (only like 8.5-1.5), but still... it was rewarding. You had to make perfect reads every time, but you got real rewards for them, especially GETB. Not like CS1 where you had to make perfect reads every time and you got a whole 3.5k and nominally some pressure (which sucked) for them. He was *better* in CS1, yes, but it honestly had more to do with nerfs given to other characters and system changes than his buffs.

    here comes another noob question: i see a lot of people talking about a "neutral game" while fighting...what is that exactly?

    here comes another noob question: i see a lot of people talking about a "neutral game" while fighting...what is that exactly?

    Basically, you can consider the general set of situations within a fighting game to be a set of states:
    • Wake-up
      • Your character is getting up off the ground. Your enemy has time for intricate set-ups and the like.
      • Goal: Don't get hit and eat another combo back into the same situation. Accomplish this by blocking or successfully using a reversal, but note that many setups may beat your reversal outright.
      • When you are in this state, your enemy is in the Okizeme state.
    • Defense
      • You are defending against enemy Pressure.
      • Goal: Block or reversal successfully
    • Neutral
      • Neither player has an advantage in terms of being on the giving / receiving end of Pressure.
      • Goal: Apply footsies and set up your character's pressure or a combo.
      • Characters with a "strong neutral game" are those who can most capitalize on this state; hit-and-run types and those with large, screen-dominating attacks or projectiles. Most zoning characters excel at neutral.
    • Pressure (offense)
      • You are attacking the enemy.
      • Goal: Mix in mix-ups and frame traps and land a hit into a combo.
    • Okizeme
      • You have knocked the enemy down, and are attacking them on their Wake-up.
      • Goal: Press your advantage. Often involves set-ups, but can also just mean transitioning back into Pressure.
      • Note that you can do nothing or block for okizeme if you want; this option is used to bait reversals in the case that your character does not have a setup safe versus the enemy reversal.
    The list above is organized based upon who has the advantage in a given situation, and by how much, from the worst situation to be in to the best.

    I don't understand why I'm so hype for this game... I never played BB or GG or any other fighter of its type but for some reason, I keep looking at P4:A and I'm literally counting down hours until the store opens tomorrow to pick up my order... All the characters seem to have a unique game plan that all seem viable, everyone says the game is incredibly well balanced for 1st attempt and I honestly see 4 or 5 characters our of 13 that I REALLY want to try...

    Can it be tomorrow yet?
    I wanted to put something witty about Economics and E-Sports here... but all I can say is wow... the people who signed up to take my class on E-Sports... fail.

    My game shipped from newegg this morning from NJ, about a 4 hour drive from here. Would be amazing it it gets here by Wednesday as I have that day off. The BB3 announcement worked well quelling my hype for the past 2 days, but I need this now. Strangely enough, I'm dying to jump into the story mode...

    I'm picking Naoto. I might try out Elizabeth as a sub though, since she has Thanatos.

    I really liked Yu when I played but I still want to hit training with Yukiko. If anything you'll see a lot of Akihiko's day one until they learn how much trouble he has trying to get in on characters like Mitsuru and Aigis. I'll think you'll see more Yu players in the long haul.

    I'm surprised at some of the combinations they have in here.

    Toilet Lunch Fuhrer

    Is another one that's a bit surprising.

    Here is something to help kill the time for waiting a live stream
    The guys from MachinimaVS are hosting a Persona 4: Arena stream today starting at 2 p.m. PDT. Maximilian, coL.cc|Combofiend, coL.cc|Gootecks and some of the guys from the Dustloop forums.
    What's your persona identity? Check out our live stream for Persona 4 Arena with special guest Gootecks from Cross Counter TV. We will be talking to the project leads from Atlus to go over the popular Shin Megami Tensei RPG turned fighter, followed by a tournament with our friends from Dustloop



    Edit: The youtube Chat is pretty atrocious as well with people comparing this game to CoD and Skyrim lol. I heard Twitch is also streaming this but don't know the channel

    XD I know, big surprise there right?

    Also, is there anyone here who has to import a copy because of the region locking?

    Not me, but I wouldn't even be mad. Nothing wrong with getting the game 2 weeks early.

    Akihiko is the most boring Boxer type character I've ever seen and played.
    Are you right? Are you READY!?

    Teach mother how to play P4A.

    This is a solution (the game's learning curve execution-wise is gradual enough that she could probably pick it up).:razzy:

    Go ask questions and see them get answered on UltraChenTV. Also maybe ask some things which beginners might be likely to ask as guiding questions.

    Yeah I don't know what it is about the game. The art style? Music? Learning curve? Fast pace? Or just a great time to push out new games because Street Fighter x Tekken is a failure in the public eye so everyone wants to scour for a new exciting game to play and not return to old games? Who knows.... it's just appealing in it's own right.

    "Defeat is a state of mind. No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as reality. To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary, and its punishment is but an urge for me to greater effort to achieve my goal. Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; it is a path leading to success and truth." ~ Bruce Lee

    So for anyone who got the game early; how is the netcode for the 360 version after the patch? I pray for it to be at least as good as BB:CT since I know I won't be able to convince any of my friends to play an "animu" fighter... I hate them.

    Dunno, I don't see an urge to play either of them admittedly. I feel more of an urge to play Brosuke, Kanji, Yu, Naoto, and Chie.
