I'm getting both on day one because they both look great.

They'd better not be saveable. Their deaths are a huge part of Barret's character development and for demonstrating thst there are actual stakes.

Backslash has a ton of endlag, and counter is great but if you miss it or use it predictably you're vulnerable for a huge amount of time. Almost none of Shulk's attacks are safe on shield hits, either. He's so weak against grabs it's almost insane. I can't really speak to scrub-tier matches, but your experience has not been terribly similar to mine.


EDIT:

Not that I don't think Shulk is awesome and super fun, but any reasonably cautious player can counter him pretty hard, is more what I'm saying.

Shulk is hard mid-tier, I wouldn't feel too bad about using him anyway. He's super easy to punish and has insane endlag on almost all his attacks.

*mains Shulk*

Anyways, yeah-- Bayo not necessarily who I would have wanted, but a great selection nonetheless. Corrin looks like s/he has an awesome moveset, so I'm pretty happy overall. Not explosively excited like I would have been had they added Isaac, but it's a choice everyone who isn't from GameFAQs seems reasonably happy with.

They've already confirmed (and shown) the ability to play as your entire party, so no worries there, I think. I doubt they'd build a system around that ATB gauge that didn't have some advantage to switching between people.

I won't lie the corridor segment gave me bad deja vu for FF13's endless onslaught, so I hope that was just one instance.

You are sort of losing grip of the genre you are talking about by saying something like this.

Ok.

So unless I'm mistaken, the only way to play with friends is to do the squad missions in the Blade HQ, yeah? It seems like they come and go at random. Is there a more reliable way to team up with friends or.

?

Get an IRC channel going and your NNID friend codes ready.

You can also Favorite and Block, but you kinda need to figure out who's who first.

Is it ever possible to join team up and roam, or do you always have to be on one of the missions from the blade computer?

I am painfully addicted to this game and it's a problem.

I think the problem is in how the discussion is being framed. The changes were almost certainly a ratings move. The boards in different countries have different standards, and if someone on that board thinks a certain facet of the game qualifies to bump up the rating, that's it. Resubmissions to the ESRB cost time and money, so it's in their best interest to get the rating they're aiming for right off the bat.

To revise my comments on the show, after having done a lot of research and chatting with translators, I don't think it's a question of 'censorship' versus 'oversensitivity' but one of culturalization versus ratings. That commenter has a valid point, but also is purely anecdotal. Most people in western territories would balk at the notion of tweaking the boob size on a young girl, and probaly don't know the context (Japan) from which it comes and from which perspective it is a much less taboo subject.

Combined with the desire to avoid a higher than intended rating (which could impact sales), that likely lead to this change being made.

On a related note, can't wait to play the game as SHULK 2.0 ADAM HOWDEN

from watching the trailer and extrapolating, I assume. they're usually pretty formulaic in how they demonstrate new characters' moves.

I was not expecting that in the slightest, but cool nonetheless. Looked like he's an Ike clone, which makes sense and I'm totally cool with if that's the case. Looking forward to getting him!

Anyone else notice that they seemed to purposely avoid showing Cloud vs. Link in the announcement?

Actually, his b moves are completely unique, and he has a limit mode mechanic as well. His a moves are a mix of Shulk and Ike, but he's defimitely not a clone aside from the similarity of their weapon and all that- even more exciting! /D

What a great surprise. Now it's Cloud time!

How the heck are you able to review it already? It isn't even out yet lol
I imagine he got a review copy.

Correct!

At some point I will definitely stream some Japanese games.
