Alright I went out last night and bought the thing. I got about an hour in before bed, and tried the missions for Dorm, PW, Doom.
First thoughts and questions:
PW really does seem to be lacking in a lot of tools. But he’s the main reason why I want to play this game sigh. Now I know how those Kyosuke mains feel (oh wait there aren’t any)
DPs seem to be harder to get out, for some reason. Maybe I was just sleepy or something, but I kept getting standing L or black hole with Dorm when I wanted pillar. I’m wondering if it’s some input priority difference between SF and UMVC, or it’s a lot more strict on ending on the df, or what.
WTF is wavedashing and why should I care. Last I remember it was some Tekken thing, and then it was crouching just after you dashed in XVSF to go faster, but now that doesn’t seem to do anything either. Maybe that’s just my characters.
I got LMHS MMHS down ok, but it seems like it’s easier to just mash on the button until you see it, rather than to bother with timing the actual button presses like you were doing links. Maybe it’s a noob thing and I’ll get the timing down soon.
I kept doing qcf qcf PP for hypers. Duh. Muscle memory is a hard thing to break.
Stalking flame into hard tag into evidence seems too slow. Maybe I should DHC into Maya instead.
I’ll probably be taking it online tonight, to understand how 3 characters work together. Better get to losing those first 100 games fast!
