    tbh, I'm pretty bummed out that Mu isn't in. It's almost a deal breaker for me.

    With such a small cast why get rid of an entire character regardless of story line implications? smh.

    Also, Nu/lamda not being is is lame too, but speculation on the dustloop forums indicates the a new robot will take her place so she may be in anyway, well her moveset/list at least.

    Still, tho... Mu-12 gone really drains the hype for me.

    Do we know for sure they won't be represented somehow? That's a lot of spritework to throw out the window.

    I'd be really surprised if they don't show up in some non-story capacity - it just seems like a waste of sprites, design, and player interest. In any event, Lambda/Nu is almost guaranteed to be back even from just a story perspective, but I'd be mighty surprised to see Mu completely MIA. Possibly a "console only" character or something. If Guilty Gear can have Sol and Holy Order Sol AT THE SAME TIME, there's no reason BB can't have Mu and Noel. :P

    Murakumo will be there. Secret boss character. It's just going to happen.

    Even though it's likely to be Nu-13, it doesn't have to be. Hell, there's what, 11 other Murakumos it could be from 1-10 and 14?

    I read somewhere last month that theres a high chance they'll be playable in versus mode cause something in the story points out that kokonoe find the labs where the lambdas were created... or something like that lol....

    But I am so pumped for this game... I love the story and the gameplay.
  • LivewireXLivewireX Joined: Posts: 5,908
    Speaking of Kokonoe, she better damn well be playable this time. I don't even care if I have to pay an additional $8 for her, either, lol.
  • AirkAirk Joined: Posts: 1,024
    I really don't understand the playable Kokonoe hype.

    Jubei, yes, Kokonoe, no. z.z

    As odd as this sounds, I don't fully understand 100% of WHY her being playable would be awesome, but I just know for me I think her character's entertaining, there's a lot they could do with her potentially from magic to science, to combinations of the two, to like robo things, etc. And plus well, her folks were members of the 6 Heroes, so canonically it makes sense for her to be able to fight. But Jubei being playable would totally be badass too. Though...of course, if those two became playable, it's entirely possible that Phantom *coughNinecough* would become playable too.

    Can we? Yes. Will we? Probably not. And I heard something about there actually being a storyline explanation for Mu's return?
  • AirkAirk Joined: Posts: 1,024
    Mumble mumble, Noel Azure save Tsubaki mumble mumble Rachel Magic Mu.

    There probably is one, but it's pointless to try to figure it out now.

    Oh yeah, that sounds like something they'd do. Something like "only Mu has the code capability to break the Imperator's hold, etc etc". Though would she just have normal Noel voice and same eye colour or something?

    I haven't played BB since CT, but was thinking of picking up extend seeing as how it's pretty cheap now. Think that's a good idea or wait for chrono?
  • AirkAirk Joined: Posts: 1,024
    Pick up Extend if you want to play BB in the next like, six months. CP isn't even out in ARCADES in Japan yet, and won't be for another month and a half or something, and then there's several months lag between arcades and consoles, and some time probably between Japan console and US console.

    Plus, Extend is like $17, which makes it a pretty solid deal. The only downside is that there aren't a trillion people playing online, though if you live in the US it shouldn't be hard to find matches. If you're in some less populated area of the world, you may want to wait, but then, there's no telling how long that wait would be. So...yeah. Thoughts.

    Appreciate the advice. I misread an article, thought it was coming next month but that's the arcade release. I thought it would be a good pickup even though I don't play BB hardcore, I really like the art and characters. Any thoughts on the collectors edition? Is it worth getting at all for the art book?

    I got the Collector's Edition for an extra $10 and thought the Soundtrack/Art Book/Calendar thing were cool editions. Then again, I got Calamity Trigger's Collector's Edition and only didn't get the one for Continuum Shift because it wasn't available in NA.
  • AirkAirk Joined: Posts: 1,024
    The artbook and soundtrack are okay - neither of them is particularly 'meaty' (ie. the artbook is on the 'pamphlet' scale), but I guess they're nice if you don't want to pay to import the 'real' thing.
  • razberryclownsacrazberryclownsac Shamooooooken Joined: Posts: 100
    I kinda like the art books usually but some are Definatley lacking here lately. Soundtracks are ok but I'll check it out and decide. Thanks for the input

    So glad about the Nu news. I was resigned to maining Tsubaki, which no one should be forced to do.

    /shrug. I'm still playing Extend. S'kinda stupid to wait on CP since we don't have the faintest idea when the console release will be.

    Seeing as the anime community is one of the flakiest, and this is SRK the worse place to discuss anime games, we might as well all play GG until CP comes out, as a majority of P4 players will go to GG as well as BB players, so expect to see those P4A numbers decline if they haven't already.

    The AirDashers community is partly flaky because they/we/whatever seem to be constantly getting all of our games shit on, having awful stereotypes, getting told how our games will never be popular, etc regardless of how good they actually are, and some people within the community will listen to what they hear without getting and forming their own opinion. Yes, it sounds fickle but to new people trying to come in, it's seen as a hard thing to get into with everybody saying how 'bad' they are. And amusingly enough, with it comes to Persona 4, I've been drifting moreso back to Extend and AE2012 while trying (mostly in vain) to be better than "absolute ass" in it, but still, I play the game when people I know are looking for some and all that.

    Yup. No Nu/Mu, but should be 'near final' for everyone else.

    Haven't seen much real info though. Loctests are kindof stupid, honestly, because instead of TELLING people "Here's what we've changed for this test, can you play with them and tell us what it does to the game?" Arc Systems instead says "Here's a new build of the game, have fun!" and people waste the entire loktest trying to do stupid crap like figure out whether move X is now plus on block or not, and don't do a damn bit of REAL playing and figuring out what any of these changes actually mean.

    That is because the mentality of the developers and fg enthusiasts on japan is different from the mentality on usa for example, this is mostly because the main target market still are the arcades, their goal is to make the players expend money on the game not only for the competition, but also to learn how the game works, it is one of the joys of the players to learn and discover everything that the game can offer.
    This is also why many players don't really like to get on video when they are playing, because they want to keep their tactics for themselves the longer time possible so they can have an edge against other players for tournaments and stuff like that.

    Maybe, but that mentality is keeping them from avoiding the sorts of balance screwups they've been making for 4 games now. "Location Tests" should be for...testing. Not for sucking money out of people by making them figure out the game. It's not as if they'd make any less money by having people play the game rather than having people trade rounds to get the most "discovery" done for their hundred yen.

    I'd also really submit that "Is X plus on block?" or "can I dash cancel Y?" isn't "what the game has to offer" any more than being able to do all of a character's special moves means you've mastered that character. The meat of the game isn't figuring out the frame data. The meat of the game is figuring how to USE that data.

    Wait. People are actually saying these games are bad?
    Yet a steaming pile of shit like UMvC3 is the most popular game in the US right now. Mind=Blown

    BTW something I've always wondered.
    How big is the Japanese BB/P4A/GG scene compared to the Japanese Street fighter scene?
  • AirkAirk Joined: Posts: 1,024
    It's unclear, but I think for a while the BB scene was comparable to the SF4 scene. That maybe have changed with P4A, which was also quite popular for a while.

    GG scene was smaller due to lack of new versions, but has probably shot up a bit, though this is all speculation.

    Anyway, Japan overally really likes BB. :P

    ASW games usually are bigger on japan than capcom games
    BB was the most popular for years just behind of Tekken and Gundam until P4A "replaced" it
    P4A accomplished the unthinkable by beating Gundam as the most popular game at arcades
    GG was always one of the top 3, until BB replaced it as well

    You play for free on the local tests

    And that is why the mooks are sold some time after the game is on the market

    Well, in fairness it's still less than Street Fighter Shoto-types or Ninjas in Mortal Kombat.
