  • well, did you get the dlc yet already? from what i understand sotfs doesn't add much other than a boss, a new npc and changes some locations. now if you were getting it on a newer system, then sure, but since i'm on the 360 till tax return gets here, and i already bought the 3 dlcs and bea tthe man game last year, its just…
  • I wouldnt say that they have the fighting engine, doa's counter button makes it easier to counter overly mashy players, whereas vf's counters on specific characters needed ridiculous button inputs that required low level telepathy to pull off. As for why, probably a few reasons, microsoft tended to push the doa series on…
  • nothing significant has been added for a long time, but if your itch is customization, co is the only game in town. do you have some new character ideas? come on back. but very little has been added, you can go through all the new content since reloaded in less than a day.
  • well, on a knee jerk level, i like the left look. so we start from that, it sa good look. as for your broader question, i think its in the spirit of comics to change up a look every once in a while, and by the game logic, new stuff comes out, you made your original look with the tools that were available at the time. back…
  • really i would prefer a new power-set as well, but i am wondering if its my perspective, im a gold for the life of this game, i don't play at's and for golds ats are more hindrance than a help. "yay, we can get a small number of new powers if we lug this prepackaged set across the finish line". its not hard really so much…
  • It may be that build nazis seem to come up to some people and not others. i'll admit i chuckled about this thread before reading further into it because its not something i am familiar with and looked kind of like a self-indulgent tantrum, based just on the title, now having read that ti happens, that recontextualizes…
  • about 4 years. only did it once. i spend too much time at the tailor and making alts. there really isnt any major interest for me at the dn of the game. you don't actually fight the lore characters that are built up through the leveling, its big monsters, sure, but nobody you have built up. mechanon helped, because its…
  • this is the realists take. yes in live mmos, the missions still break down to a number of conventions, but co is so much worse at disguising it than most other mmos(its better than Korean grind-hells, so gold star there). and we had our best year since reloaded, by getting a handful of them and a miniscule number of…
  • no, actually he is being unusually straightforward and ehlpful . steel crusade is something new, so that is great, but its still standard missions. beat up spawns of enemies, click glowies, the beginning is pretty sill, even by comic book terms, but its new content and that is good. and it advances real lore, so thats…
  • that would work..was actually being chewed on by a jack Russel at the time, so that's why it came to me. curious way of expressing affection those dogs.
  • Brian jaques is apparently adding an airforce to redwall.
  • supposedly chris and tim left rare some time ago, but I agree with your point. wish Nintendo would just re-buy rare for the i.p rights to get their old great n64 games on the virtual console and maybe rescue some dormant i.ps. right now rare is jsut making kinect sports games, gimmie a dang battletoads game again so i can…
  • get one with a snarling jack Russel terrier on it, call it MOBA player.
  • pac man from smash bros would like a word with you on that oldest character in a fighting game...and yes, fights in smash can be one on one, so it counts. but yeah, i preferred playing saberwulf so I had read about this a while ago, he was in a gba game too.
  • now you are just leibniz-picking.
  • x y and z not enough for you? and for on topic. i want ninja pants.
  • I dunno,his premonitions, which are likely just conversations he and terra and a few others have with the devs on test server(would be nice if they ever visited here, or gave a state of the game like most mmo teams, but whatever), are generally not very specific, which makes sense because they probably dont tell him…
  • wouldnt need an emulator for bloodlines, it runs fine on steam.
  • While I am no fan of how pwi has handled it, its important to note that had the game not been picked up when atari was tossing it years ago, its likely that co would be gone. and gotta say, not liking the idea of only having dcou for my customizable superhero needs (and saints row 4) they dont exactly have the customizable…
  • that is not my experience.:biggrin:
  • it would be an agreeable start. one caveat, must be a developer, NOT TT. he is a guy doing his job, and its nothing personal, but his job is to make perfect world look good, not care about co or the players and i just do not trust him anymore to have our interests at heart.
  • the big one for me would be what people were calling "ninja pants" basically bulky pants that still show knee length boots. for coh vets, they were the tucked-in option. my perennial request in superheor mmos that seemingly never actually gets put in, despite being ubiquitous in manga and martial arts themed comics,…
  • if you like japanese games, its a good system, considering buying one myself once my tax return comes back. the god eater games look like a good mosnter hunter styled sci fi game, and nippon ichi makes games for it, so its a good system for the discerning anime nerd...which i like to think i am.:biggrin:
  • not that simple, publisher whim and decisions based on regional politics can play as much into those sort of calls as any kind of satisfaction metric. had pw not picked up co when atari was ditching, then it would have been lights out, regardless of satisfaction. it jsut a good thing they liked sto. as for buxom, i doubt…
  • well sure, but its the question of the thread. its what you like about it. we have all made peace with the fact that the game is full on dead(in fact a few seem to prefer it) and is just there to shake down the fanbase for lockbox keys , but at least its still playable, embalmed even.
  • customization. and thats pretty much it. co has more appearance options than dcou, and other games with specific settings are too specific to give me he freedom i want. that said i haven't played since around September when we got the new stuff. predictably the attention died off. but i keep coming back to see if any new…
  • you know, it is possible they are partnering with smedley to go independent of sony. I'm kind of interested since i was looking cautiously at eqn, dont like the free to play garbage, but the game seems to be trying some new things...if its not strangled by the f2p set-up. and an optimistic reading would be that this may…
  • I am a fan as well. angels and stand my ground were two of my favorites. they aren't as consistent as nightwish for songs i absolutely love, but they generally have 3-4 really good ones per cd. hydra was a really good cd as well. and finn, ok can i have tarja then? admittedly she is married and i dont speak finnish, but…
  • I would pay very large amounts of money to be able to do that. sadly this is only true by a very broad definition of play. (plus you guys would finally get rid of me here, so win-win.:P )
  • co does individual zones differently, coh had a large number of smaller zones than mc but added together, they made a larger area. but the city was the entirety of the game, even the praetoria zones were still city zones. by comparison a lot of zones in co are wild-lands style areas with minimal civilization, like…
  • it was too much to hope that i would get to do the "adjust your gamma" joke. wasn't it. anyhow, the early game was silly but check aftershock, it gets grimmer. and your aesthetic is up to you, you can choose to be funny or you can choose to be dark age.
  • coh made issue 10 , total revamp of a zone, new endgame fight, a full multi npc mission chain as well as daily missions, total art revamp of an enemy group, 4 full costume sets, new "raid" a full new allied faction and a new currency with 15, no excuses.
  • we will likely get some token effots, some costumes, and around september maybe 3-4 more door missions, maybe up to 6 by the end of the year, and maybe a few powers(mostly passives that dont add any new animations)
  • he said he was excited for it, his standard of content and mine diverged some time. if its a new zone and a plant powerset its one thing, if its another set of a few door missions and thats all the new playable stuff for the entire year...its better than before, no doubt, and i have a lot of respect for the devs for making…
  • not equivalent though, breasts are a secondary sex characteristic, "johnsons" are genitals. there would be a possible analogue that im not going to get into, but im not sure the moderation level of it, but isnofar as there is a direct analogue, its not breasts, nor anything above the waist. and we cant customize the thing…
  • when you have a diverse collection of cd's because the Colombia house guys could never read the order number of the cds you were actually ordering. you are also old. because colombia house.
  • I realize there is subjectivity in definitions, but it would be a major stretch to call mecahnon an expansion, it was a content patch at best. and kind of a small one all things considered. this thread seems to be about something like jump to lightspeed, going rogue or guild wars prophecies. big meaty things with lots of…
  • on coh we were all pretty well aware of it when it was the marvel mmo. then that kind of went dark and i didnt hear anything until i read a game informer about it and some of the art looked interesting. so i got into the open beta, figured it looked like it had a good future to grow like coh did with lots of new powers,…
  • i do not expect to ever see anything playable out of h&v. funny part is i ran a number of tfs with gg and in person, she seemed ok, she did love trolling people though(we seem to have a few here with similar hobbies) but that she broke up the talent pool at the beginning of this to fund an ego project bothered me. i thend…
  • also, for jilted cohers, co was the only other hope, with dcou's gimped costume system. we wanted to love co, it hurts that just lied down and died. funny thing is, the single player nature of pa was what i wanted. already had an online game taken away from me, i can do without the screaming 15 year olds if i get to keep…
  • just did, it actually seems pretty nice, and the martial arts anims at even this early stage are better than usual. i plan on playing both, i have said as much a few times already, if you cared to read. honestly if anyone has gone into the binary, its you man. cot is in a different stage of development than vo, that's all…
  • ok, ignoring the condescending tone, i notice you have yet to actually name these places. now i follow gaming news for a number of gaming styles, handheld console and pc, so which great bastion of knowledge am i missing because again, given the results of its admittedly meager amount of funding it was asking for, it still…
  • he, say what you want about kotaku, rather than being thin skinned, its gets news out there. better them than polygon. again i ask as you didnt aswer that part, have you been to the cot site lately to see what they have said? also, enlighten me again(as you are the only place i have heard of VO from) outside of the…
  • or if you like them on facebook, so far they have shown 2 costume pieces and a weapon. its on their current placeholder model, but still, in game pics. and as for lore, they have been sending lore emails extensively...maybe a few too many at this point, but if you want lore, they have been sending tons of lore. as for…
  • just thought of another one that has a slightly similar overworld art style(the character art looks different, its non-anime) but have you ever played "child of light"? one of my faves frm earlier this year, the combat is turn based and really reminiscent of the paper mario games, but the art stle reminded me of that a bit.
  • key word is apparent. i have donated to a number of kickstarters that have taken time to show anything, so not too scared. as for valiance, barely even heard of it before cybersoldier mentioned it, and i had been lurking on the phoenix forums for a while.. looks ok, but did notice it barely hit 20% of its initial…
  • chantelise is an ok dungeon crawler with kind of a trippy snes 3d with sprites thing going on. blade kitten is less straight anime but if you like strider/ the original ninja gaiden 2d action with climbing type games, its really good, has a ton of costumes for the main char and has a funny story. also supposed to get…
  • chance of new substantial content updates? almost none at all based on the last 3 years, but it should stay open for a few years so they can sell lock boxes, so if you like it as it is, its a good buy, free-forms are so much better than anything else. and with discipline, the stipend can cover a lot of free stuff.
  • ok clarifying, a customizable superhero game, since i mentioned it like 4 times earlier i figured that was understood :P i dont want to play some dusty relic from the 50s who was used to sell hostess fruit pies. nor work through garth ennis' daddy issues, i want to make my own character and select my powers, and ideally…
  • i don't recall mentioning any other pwi games, so i dont follow your question. I dont see cryptic spending the money to get any other studio to make a champs game. its jsut not been a prioity for them for so long, i wouldnt see the motivation. but i agree that if a customizable superhero game came out(heck, go freedom…
