Battle Fantasia Thread


#1

Didn’t see a BF thread in this section, if there’s already one, please point me to it and delete this one!

Please post up if you’re down for some online BF. I just got my copy last night, but I like it. Online is fun, but I’d like to get a good list going so we can hopefully play matches until our eyes bleed.


#2

This is a Japanese game, yes?


#3

There are talks of Battle Fantasia getting localized(by who? Don’t know). But yes, at the current time it is import only.


#4

It is import only, but it works 100% on any PS3, doesn’t matter what region or model. All PS3 games are supposed to be region-free.

Almost all of the menus are in english, there’s virtually no need to understand Japanese to play this game as a fighting game.

Online battles work as normal battles do.

There is talk of a Fall Release in America, but I can’t find anything confirming this. Also, a good point someone else made was that there’s no guarantee they’ll keep the Japanese voices for this game, and I can’t stand American voice dubbing. Oh yeah, and it was $60, the same price to buy it if it were to come out here, so no nasty import gouges.

Hope to see you all online!

I guess I should traverse Chinatown for a copy. If not, Playasia will own me up with shipping because I do overnight. I don’t trust leaving anything in the Asian continent for more than 2 days.

Deathsythe, have you tried NCSX.com? I go through them instead of play-asia, I find their shipping to be much more reasonable.


#7

yesasia
Mine is about to arive any minute now.
Great to hear that the online mode is working well!


#8

Man, shipping for NCSX is WAYYY cheaper ! $10 for Battle Fantasia and HRAP3. :pray:


#9

Yeah, that’s what I’m gonna shoot for. I’ve ordered from them before, but I always forget about their site.


#10

I’m up for some games. 200ms against japanese Donvalves is a bit taxing on my patience.


#11

Lol, thats exactly what happens man, they use the lag and DV’s priority to win. I guess I should expect it though.

I’ll most likely be on tonight, I’m mostly rotating between Cedric/Ashely/Freed, but I really want to pick up Face.

Hope to see you on!


#12

im down for some games. i dont blame them for usin donvalve cause u cant do anything in delay. I use donvalve in delay as well.


#13

Masamuna!

Fun games man, you really handed it to me on a few of those. Sucks that there was a DC on that last match though, I guess PSN is flakey.

Hope to play you again soon!


#14

GG’s Maxx. Yeah, the DC sucked but atleast we got 6 or so games in. I’ve got your’s and Mag’s PSN requests added, so lets get some more games in the future.

PS, where are you in GA?


#15

Ordered mine last week from Play-Asia. Hope it comes in soon so i can join in on all this fun.


#16

ggs maxx and masa wish both of u guys were on westcoast. you guys pinging same as japanese. max u know cedric combos right? also, i think mashing punch on wakeup is not a good idea :frowning: cause u get hit with a lot overheads and with watson claw hitting u. but yea im goin to be gettin the x360 version for n/a release cause xbl online is better.


#17

Yeah, EC to WC really takes a toll on the lag. Couldn’t hit confirm for shit. But at the end of the day j2C will net me a match or two.

GG’s Mags.


#18

u mean j2d yea. the thing is i actually know how to play donvalve. the japanese players just throw. but i think ec to wc on xbl will be better


#19

PSN id: kusa. I’d love to play some of ya sometime. DeathBringer ftw!


#20

Hey Kusa, got the invite while I was watching a movie. I’ll be back on this weekend, we’ll play for sure!

Pig, I wasn’t meaning to mash C on wakeup, I just couldn’t time the moves right to do specials on wakeup. :frowning: This is the first online fighting game I’ve played since CvS2 back in like 2002/2003, so I’m remembering what its like to deal with lag. :confused:

I’m trying to learn Cedric, he’s very Guile-esque, and I play him a lot in SF games. TBH, I haven’t had much time to learn combos, I don’t even know where to look them up. I just watch youtube vids if I have time at work and then just play when I get home.
