Is anyone surprised at that? Can we stop being surprised the DLC is sometimes cut from the main game, or do we have to keep this charade up? It happens. It's not going to stop happening. Deal with it.
Doom and Dormammu are both amazing, I am pleased. Haggar is wonderful and much appreciated over Zangief. Tron and Hsien-Ko are much harder to use then I remember them being, I'm probably going to have to drop them. I am surprised how effective and good Spencer plays, was not expecting him to be a favorite. Arthur is just too much fun.
I'm really impressed at the bredth of the character designs included in the game; part of what I didn't like about MvC2 was that most of the characters felt identical to each other, but most of the characters in this game feel unique, which is extra surprising since there are so many "half-clones" (Akuma/Ryu, Dante/Deadpool, Hulk/She-Hulk, Taskmaster in general). Playable defensive characters like MODOK and Arthur are a nice treat as well.
I have the PS3 version, I'm not very good at the game but I'm almost always up for a fight.
Well, they did just come out and say "We didn't withhold it on purpose. It was due to technical difficulties." Honestly it sounds like to me, everything was ready to go and some crazy shit happened with the texture/moveset/something, so they pulled it but left their BGM and character model on the disk.
Hsein-ko has a really good assist. I just saw it today, and she swings on her chain in an arc (hits high). I didn't play around with it too much, but the attacks I hit her with, did not stop her. She kept on going and finished her assist while taking the damage. Was actually a pretty annoying assist.
One of their design philosophies was to try and make each character different/unique from each other so your feeling is right on.
Sentinel is just downright retarded, again. I picked him up for literally about an hour today and I was just fucking around in player matches with someone way above my skill level. Of the 3 or 4 wins I got (out of 10-11ish games) were 100% thanks to Sentinel. It wasn't uncommon for me to beat 2 or 3 of his other characters with Sentinel alone because he destroyed the rest of my team.
And at the moment, netplay still blows ass. No spectator mode (no watching other people play online), no way to pick who you get matched up against in ranked so quite possible to get paired against someone with poverty internet, and connecting to ANYONE can be a pain in the ass (XBL only possibly). I believe the last issue is only related to Xbox Live, but I had major problems connecting to people last night and today. Ranked, Player, Lobbies - I had trouble connecting to anyone. It just keeps seaching for a match, then disconnects and sends you back to the first main menu. Annoying, but I'm sure it'll get ironed out eventually.
