Bloody Roar 3/Primal Fury/Extreme

Tech RomancerTech Romancer PSN: Tech_RomancerJoined: Posts: 5,200
I've recently gotten stoked about this game after a friend introduced it in our match sessions, and seeing how pimp BR3 was I had to get into it.

For those not in the know, Primal Fury/Extreme is a graphically enhanced, remixed version of BR3 with a few gameplay tweaks. Also lets us play Chronos, Uranus and Fang. I went ahead and lumped BR3 in though since it's still played and the changes aren't too drastic; strategies, combos that work in BR3 generally work in BR: PF/Extreme.

Also, this is pretty balanced game (EVERYONE has something they can abuse, and knowing your character is what really counts - my kinda game) but here's a tier list for those curious:

--- Top Tier ---
* Shenlong
* Chronos (Not available in PF)
* Uranus (Broken/Banned in BR3 vanilla)
* Khoryu

--- Upper-mid ---
* Yugo
* Jenny
* Shina (move to mid in PF)
* Long (move to mid in PF)

--- Mid Tier ---
* Everyone else

    For those who don't know the system or need a refresher, Psychopulse has an excellent FAQ with basic mechanics, movelists and brief character analysis. (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/537496/22551)

    Yeah, I've talked somewhat with Giza on youtube; he seems to really work that Ganesha and Chronos. In fact his recent Ganesha vids is what made me consider Ganesha for a rising moniker from low-tier. If only we had a Ganesha player down here in Georgia...

    I'm trying to wean Phoenix, one of our tekken gurus, on Gato personally. We need a Gato player so bad.

    Here's what we got:

    Zero: Uriko, Uranus
    Pyro: Kohryu, Shina, Xion, Alice
    Eli: Xion, Chronos
    Luna: Yugo
    Some other guy: Yugo

    A game I used to have, but had no one to play against, sadly. I don't think I really took advantage of the game mechanics that much (which isn't surprising if the CPU is all one is facing). I would like to pick it up again, however, if I could find some people to play with.

    I used Bakuryu, Shina, and occasionally Alice.

    BR3 is an excellent game. meter management is sophisticated (timer runs out, health low? insta-hyperbeast!), combos and gameplay has a 2d touch to it. The only problem is the circle strafe, which evades way too many moves. Unfortunately, they just removed it in later versions of BR instead of trying to balance it a bit :/

    Haha. Yeah, Pyro owned me with the sidestepping when we first started playing. Check out the earlier matches on my account when we first started playing - he uses it to actually negate the recovery time on his strings and get past my own. It even avoids throws! I started implementing horizontal attacks into my strings and picking more to get past this.

    I should be able to get better matches up now since Laughing Otter has learned to defend correctly against my Shina. Hopefully I'll be able to bring Ganesha out of low tier... but hey, someone has to be worst in the game.

    Nice thread. To those people who have competition...I hate you. :rofl:

    lol Giza.

    Awhile ago I found an infinite with Xion. Works the same way as Gado's infinite where he headbutts you continuously and you keep on bouncing off the floor. It's not practical at all since the move you use is pretty slow and requires a counter hit to bounce, and the inf is probably corner only. I don't remember what's the command for it, so I guess it's time to fire up my copy of BR3...when I find it first. -_-;

    I'm trying my darnest to make it there, man. Because of an event last month, I now have to be very frugal with my money. If I'm still good by the time Impact Clash starts, I'll be there, either that or beg my mom to do something....which I'd really rather not ask my mother for financial help. :sweat:

    Hopefully, it works out.

    Anyway, coming back with more updates; me and Pyro ran the gauntlet today and had some sexy-ass matches.

    This is the first of the batch and my so-called notable mention of the day:

    Sweetness.

    I'm uploading the rest as I type this.

    Bloody Roar PR and 3 are very cheap right now on Amazon. Around like, 4 or five bucks when I ordered mine. These games are bargin bin price as of now; no-one needs to fear a hole being burned in their wallet.

    Where's Fang on that tier list? He has most of Yugo's moves but a lot of his moves act differently. I'll have to track down this vid of him clowing I'd seen a while back.

    That's a good question. I personally am unsure of him myself; I have never seen him played nor do any of my friends dabble with him. I've heard he actually sucks, but not sure. Maybe Giza can enlighten us, as Fang players are almost unheard of to me.

    Hmmm, it seems Fang is Xbox exclusive. He plays like Yugo, only he uses his old moveset from the older games. I didn't play Yugo in the older titles so I'm still in the dark. His beast drives seem the same though. That's all I got. :sweat:

    I knew there was some difference between them. But if it's nothing gamebreaking then OK. But on the same flip Yugo's always had some wild shit in every game anyway. So it wouldn't suprise me if Yugo/Fang are tiered as equals anyway.

    In case you weren't sure I liked this game.... (I'll give the clueless a hint MY NAME) I want them to make a 5th so bad for the next gen consoles especially if it has online. I obviously main Bakuryu, but I wasn't bad with any characters except the slower ones. (I'm a speed demon) I'm glad people haven't forgotten this game!

    Actually, Fang is also in the Gamecube version of the game as well, but only in the Japanese version though. I really need to find the Japanese version so bad.

    His first super is the same as Yugo's. His second one is unique to him though, it changes the opponent from beast to human on hit. Fang is more powerful like (BR2 Yugo) compared to speedy version of Yugo as of present.

    OK. This thread needs to cover the opus of Bloody Roar. So tiers and strats for all games instead of focusing on just one.

    So, far Bloody Roar 3 is the only title I have seen played seriously and had an actual tourney scene. But if anyone has some info they want to discuss on the other titles, post it up and I'll change the thread title.

    I can't be the forefront for the simple reason I only played the other titles casually and can't really speak about them.

    (added it to the main list as well)

    Not sure if these are tourney matches, but this top-level play. Should shut up anyone who thinks this game is a scrubfest or button masher BTW.

    In short, this is what your matches should look like when you master this game.

    That shit was greasy as fuck. I've never seen more GC's in a combo since in forever. That is the shit that will motivate me to get back in shape in BR.

    Tech a question if I may. How in the hell could you run this on a stick? Cause I had a couple of ideas but seeing as BR is P, K, B & HG how could you find a good stick config for it anyway?

    The only config I could come up with is this:
    B P K
    HG

    It mimics SC/VF in a way but when I tried it it didn't feel right. Unless I can find something that works I might run pad since that is what I play BR with anyway.

    You'll have to ask Deadly Rave Neo how he had his sitck set up when we played at FRXII, because I use pad for this game.

    But if I used my six-buttion ASCII stick for this game, I would configure it:

    K Be
    B P HB

    mimics the layout of the PS2 and GC format closely, which allows me to not have to revamp my muscle memory when it comes to doing the JC combos and my custom strings.
