The new Blazblue really has me frustrated. It's cool as an arcade release and cool as a Vita release, but as a new disk-based home version, it's no good. Rebalance and one new character isn't worth dividing the player base over. As it stands now, I have no motivation to buy the game and if they add more DLC characters...well, I'll buy it, but end up spending arguable more than it's worth. It's not about the money (for me), though, it's about alienating part of the audience. Arksys really broke the "true fans are few, but pay big" cycle with their last release, so I hate to see fighting games take a step back into a potentially smaller consumer base. [QUOTE] I didn't expect to like MvC3 at all and the whole thing has been a very pleasant surprise, in the first release it was characters I didn't want turning out to be great fun, in the second it's characters I actually wanted but never expected! Can't wait to pick UMvC3 up. I should trade in the first while I can. [/QUOTE] I think I would be more excited about UMvC if KOF wasn't coming out at the same time. By the same merit, I would be more excited about KOF if UMvC wasn't coming out at the same time. The new characters looks great, but I'm still uneasy about the balance changes. Not that there SHOULDN'T be balance changes... I just can't wrap my head around some of these. Dr. Doom, for example, was already good enough thanks to his hidden missiles assist. Plenty of people used him (in tournaments, too). Why did he need buffs? If you're going to buff him, shouldn't you debuff his assist? A lot of people complain that Tron and Haggar's buffs aren't enough to make up for their assist debuffs as well, but that sort of thing I'll have to wait and see on. Dr. Doom bugs me though, because it seems like they've created another obvious top tier character. Well, I'm no pro, so what do I know anyway? Still, I would hate to see an updated version with crummier balance than the original, especially when they said their goal was to make sure no character was useless.
