For those that have loved playing this game all the way through. For the 2 people that I know are out there past all that salt…this is for you.
We all know that UMVC3 is easily the most popular fighting game in the US and even has some international (notice I used this word as opposed to just Japan…there are other countries) support.
It’s also brought a ton of controversy about from Vanilla’s DHC glitch, 8 year old beating older people, and XF to Ultimate’s Astral Vision and TAC’s. Despite this people have still been captivated by it and has easily brought some of the most hype tournament play and stream video we’ve seen for a fighting game in a while IMO. A game that hype just to watch means it’s only gotta be more interesting to play to overcome so many variables at once so fast. So fast that people have decided to make the standard 3/5 for tournaments. Even the biggest tourney Evo will have 3/5 for quarter finals (top 128) all the way up until grand finals. You’ll have to have those quick fights in pools but after that the game will definitely grind.
I believe it’s truly about controlling a…
that makes it what it is for people. Offense and defense are both very powerful and they both can happen very fast. Not to mention the game just looks pretty. You can find a way to make a team tailored to your play style with the right assists and have a comfortable time. A lot of characters are very viable and if anything…new types of characters will be more viable with the TAC stuff we’re figuring out now.
It is pretty amazing that we survive the world we’re living in and maybe UMVC3 is just a video game presentation of that.
It creates so much back and forth in and out of the game (hell even Spain has gone back and forth with the game) that you can’t help.
