Why is this considered appropriate combat attire?
That shit isn't appropriate at all.
You can't even see her feet.
It distracts her opponents while she goes in for the kill.
Because in a fist fight your clothing doesn't much matter unless you're wearing armor or padded shit which most human beings in fist fights are not wearing.
This game is primarily hand to hand combat with some solid blunt weapons (which, again, clothing doesn't do much about) and one girl with a gun, which nothing you wear will save you from anyway.
It is also a game where a character can be shot 30 times in the face and simply stand up, the clothing is the least of the problems.
Almost everyone can pop up a magitech barrier in an instant or some equviliant of it, no one uses armor.
Not to mention how it'll probably be useless against half the shit the cast throws at you, you think a Kevlar vest is going to stop one of Noel's rounds?
Same reason why this is considered appropiate combat attire as well
Actually, she totally is a 12 or so year old girl.
With three different personalities.
And here's the series' five year old heroine
No the loli with the jacked up age would be Rachel, who's like 90+ years by this point.
She's a way better sort-of-loli than Platinum anyway.
Yeah I suppose.
Have another black haired Rachel.
Well I guess there's nothing wrong with Ragna then.
>mfw slugging through CP's story
Man, were the other two like this? Feels drawn out to hell and back.
>I have heard is the best one yet.
whoever said that lied. The older story formats were better giving each character their own story that at least didn't completely make them feel so irrelevant and they had decent amount of fights. Do you remember by the end of CP where Tao is? No because she was completely fazed out of the story 30 minutes in.
Yes? Tao is irrelevant, who cares.
CP history, as the actual history, the bonus VN of the fighting game, is the best one yet.
Before you say shit about the lack of fights, I don't really mind since when I want to play I just go online.
Every time someone brings it up people can't stop complaining. Generally it comes to
>dragged out dialogues without any action
>everyone except main cast having shit for screen time. Hell even Jin showed up like 3 times
>dumbing down characters by making them completely one dimensional
>throwing out any character development
>lack of special CGs and reusing them from earlier games
It was honestly easier to digest for me compared to Continuum Shift.
Most of the characters had an incredibly boring story mode that never really mattered to the true ending, 99% of the fights are forced through terrible reasons (CP had this problem, but not as much, obviously), and playing as characters you hated playing as just to get 100% completion was a chore.
The most powerful people with the most powerful weapons in the world fighting eachother
and a japanese magical schoolgirl shows with her panty wearing robot to protect her
>suit jacket with jean shorts
>t-shirt is short enough to show half her torso but baggy enough in the chest for her massive tits
>just try and imagine what that shirt would actually look like
>belt around her waist isn't actually holding anything up, also there's loops in her jacket to account for a giant diagonal belt somehow
>belt is also long enough to look like a tail
>giant asymmetrical pen nib gauntlets what the fuck
How can one game have so many horrendous character designs.
>Why is this considered appropriate combat attire?
But it isn't. She's just dressed in whatever shit she thinks looks cute because she doesn't give a fuck. She's a magical girl, not a hardened veteran soldier.
I know it's supposed to be a blatant fapbait character, but I've never really taken a good look at her design before. Holy shit that's terrible.
Her concept art is a little better.
Eh. The worst part about this design are those short-shorts. If she had actual pants, she'd just be some standard underdressed mercenary.
The buttfloss is really, really bad. Everything else compliments itself pretty fine. Even the belt around her waist at least keeps the jacket together, and her gauntlets are a pair of pilebunkers.
Well I'm not going to call it quality control but the story about Mu's origins make me believe that there are at least a few people that get weirded out about the choices that get greenlighted
Lacking lady is jealous of boobie lady!
why is she so perfect
Hm interesting to be honest though I don't really mind Mu's design however.
Nice, a BB thread? Anyone wanna play? I'm getting tired of beating the faggots over on /asg/
>BBCP Online lobby
>Decide to go a Japanese lobby
>Mainly Terumi, Hazama, and Jin players
Mu and Makoto are both designs that I had just just get used to. I saw Mu-12 and my first thought we "this is really stupid." But I played the game a whole lot and I stopped caring. I saw the Makoto DLC and my first thought was "this is really stupid." Same story. Saw Valkenhayn and liked it but then I already knew what Valkenhayn looked like and I was glad he was in. Then I got to Platinum and etc etc although since BB lists off anime tropes I kind of knew "magical girl" was somewhere on that list.
Because in a cast of mostly pessimistic or crazy people Tao is just unbelievably positive. Bang and Kagura are both positive too but Bang is kind of inept and Kagura is a whore.
>Tao is just unbelievably positive
Exactly why she is gonna save the world.
>Getting an erection from Plat
noel is shit
Well I'm sorry that you like girls with bitchy personalities.
Anyone here actually sat through Teach me Ms. Litchi?
How the fuck do I git gud at this game, whenever I try to attack I get counterhit and whenever I try to punish I get counterhit
Obviously if my light jab is getting counterhit after I block I'm doing something wrong but no matter how many matches I play I can't get the hang of it
I tried I don't think I ever made it though.
I just didn't expect the world to be so dark
Kokonoe injected an unconscious man with demon cells, Arakune used to be a man but turned into an insane blob monster filled with bees, and Relius is all kinds of fucked in the head
Well this is the same game where Relius made what equates to the Mars rover after a preteen girl, forced them to explore a place literally outside of time, and then when they came back, with souls mind you, he tortured them until they displayed godlike power or died. Also Ragna's fucked no matter what anyone does and Rachel intends to die with him.
Yeah basically Rachel has been reliving the same 100 years over and over again constantly with Takamagahara beaming the memories of each cycle back to her. She has pretty much over a thousand years' worth of memory. Also her memory is perfect
Well I give ASW points since Celica isn't not-Carl or not-Relius. Despite having Minerva, she's not really a puppet character but rather one big character. Lambda just gets on my nerves though. They didn't even bother changing her spritesheet and is just a Nu that hits harder and her swords stun now
So I bought CP the other day
for Vita because I haven't touched my Vita in months
and I need to ask, what the fuck happened to the story mode?
The story layout is completely different than the earlier games and I haven't gone through a single fight despite being 25% of the way through it all.
Besides that the game is still great
Yeah I guess the Nu players didn't like stance switching and so they separated them again. So now you have Nu who has a few more dashes including a backwards up dash and Lambda with slower moving swords that stun on hit and a Calamity Sword homes in now
I thought the important characters got a good amount of development, though ones like Carl and Litchi got completely shat on, the new characters barely do anything, and Kagura hogging most of the screentime
With the time shenanigans done with they tried to have a slightly more grounded plot. Mori actually tried to end the story with this one but couldn't. But by the end the main villain shows her hand, some big plot points are raised, and everyone is gearing up for the final battle.
>The story layout is completely different than the earlier games and I haven't gone through a single fight despite being 25% of the way through it all.
Yeah get used to that.
For CP they decided to split up the story into three main routes as opposed to telling them individually.
IMO it's kinda fun on it's own way, but it really makes you need to investigate Japan shintoist lore and stories to get a better approaching.
So it's probably decent in Japan's eyes, but for occidentals it's usually seen as a clusterfuck, because the story assumes the player knows who were Amaterasu, Izanami, Susano'o, etc... and everything is happening it's about gods, I even think blazblue takes parts of some of these gods stories and put them together while reworking them.
I theorize that the last part of blaz blue story (in the next new game) could be guessed by now just by reading almost everything about the gods they already had been named.
But with some luck, Mori can go full crazy (and I think he will do) and surprise people, because there's the human factor in this story and it looks strong as fuck.
Is Terumi kinda losing his villainy appeal? I mean just about everyone he's killed has come back from the dead and the only person at the moment he "seems" to have killed is (One of) the most fuck-annoying characters in the franchise. Hell, minus that all of his plans involve him being an obnoxious prick to everyone relying on others to help his ass
Basically Hakumen is supposed to be an extension of Master Unit Amaterasu (the thing humanity accidentally fished up from the bottom of the boundary and has been resetting time over and over again). Basically he's a cyborg with a human soul attached to it. And apparently at 100% it's the strongest thing in existence with the exception of the literal god of death. And according to Rachel it's possible for him to WIN. Just to illustrate how absurdly, stupidly powerful Hakumen potentially is:
>Currently locked at 20 - 25% power
>Still capable of literally cutting holes in time and looking at alternate versions of himself
>Capable of killing immortal beings
What the fuck can he do at 100%?
It was actually (imo) the best way to deal with the mistake of giving Nu both styles (which weakened her gameplay). Sickle Storm, Spike Chaser will work differently on both characters and Nu will retain the ability to use Act Parcer while Lambda will gain keep the Act Parcer Zwei moves.
If you go purely by percentages Azrael would be the strongest thing in existence. Since 1/8 Azrael is stronger than 1/5 Hakumen.
Both at full power would probably be who could one shot the other first
So from what I can gather Susanoo is supposed to be antagonistic towards Amaterasu out of jealousy or frustration? Because I guess that would explain Terumi while him redeeming himself would explain Jin
Celica's theme is neat
Please die in a fire. I bet you like flat MILFs too
hey slow down come back to me 10 year Later.
>BACK. THE. FUCK. OFF
lmao what a fucking loser get a life
>Where do you think we are?
>muh secret 4chan club of jap weaboo's :( only otaku's allowed fuck 3d women
no she has an older sister that looks exactly the same as her
>An ordinary high school student who has the power to see people's life force in numerical values
Why do I have 4 arms? For what purpose do they serve? I look up to the Heavens for the answer.
I started playing BB and fighting games out of pure waifuism.
Feels good to main and be kinda alright with her now.
I once thought it was imposable for me to get good at fighting games.
The big claws are sleeves like Hsien-ko's
On my best day I have the basics completely down and will never miss them with one or two advanced tricks that I know but I'm always unstable with. Bad tendency of auto-pilot play which results in me losing matchups that should be easy or at least not hard.
Play more, stop autopiloting even though it could be worse in situations, like in blockstrings, try new stuff, don't mind losing for trying. Watch you replays and realize which shit you should stop doing.
I too have autopilot tendencies but that's how I am getting rid of it.
Who do you use? Are you good in defenses?
I don't think so.
It be neat if she was though.
I play Carl. Kind of meh in offense currently. Terrible in defense. Trying to work them out one step at a time. Watching replays is something I forgot I can do though I imagine that will be a painful experience considering my last few matches. But thanks for the advice.
>he can use Carl
>thinks he's not gud
Check your privilege
It was nice
Plat got nothing new, bummer.
What new nerfs should I expect this time? Buster's being made techable? Less invincibility frames on 720 startup?
I'm usually too busy getting annoyed at the insta-overhead flail spam and obnoxious bat DPs to watch for pantsu.
>command grab refills uses
>OD give infinite uses during it's duration
>Magical Jeanne gives a full stock of enhanced items
It is not hard for Plat to extend her stock of uses at all, and that overhead is one of her safest and most annoying moves to deal with.
Worst command grab of the game
Plat's OD is just a gimmick or used for trolling, no defenses other than the burst.
MJ is a super, can't really spam that, and it enhances the next item, not the current own.
>Worst command grab of the game
That's not Tsubaki's grab. Also, OD is incredibly useful for certain characters like Valk, Carl, and Relius since it refills their doll/wolf meters. It's not as good for Plat, but infinite item uses and a refill to top it off can be very useful on offense.
Any changes to Bang? Can they please change his raining nail command so that I'm not doing it by accident?
I WISH Plat's grab had 9 frames of start up
And no, her OD is just a gimmick outsides FanxN punish combos and trolling with treasure boxes. Plat's OD doesn't refill her items.
>Valk, Carl, and Relius since it refills their doll/wolf meters
Yes? We are talking about Plat's not other characters.
It gives her two stocks and the range is fine, a little bigger than normal grabs, just like every other command grab.
Like forbidden fruit. A cute sort of sluttiness. The immense shame she'd feel for me as I partook in the action.
She'd be pretty soft, all things considered.
I suck at doing combos. I am especially bad and doing high jump j2c after a 2c. Why am I so bad?
>high jump j2c after a 2c
I've never done that as Hakumen. How would that even work?
I don't even know. I was so frustrated practicing it, but when I kept dropping it during actual matches, the timing and muscle memory just sorta clicked.
well i still want to stick my tongue inside of platinum's butthole, just so you know.
You think that's bad? This loli is naked underneath this.
>playing a character as braindead as CP Jin
The typical Hakumen Jump loop works like this:
Kishuu->Enma(launch)>j.2C (when opponent sprite flips 180 down)>5B>j.2A>jump cancel>j.2C when sprite flips>5A>j.2A>jump cancel>j.2C when sprite flips>5A>5B>j.B>jump cancel>j.2A>j.C
The important part is when you'll do j.2C. You can also do jump loops after a counterhit 3C. You can scoop em up with 2C then go straight to j.2A portion of the loop
