the uk boxart from blazblue calamity trigger sucks. Especially compared to the jap one I bought months before. Great game but I ain't competitive enough for online but man it's so fun to play locally.

you need CT if you wanna understand the story. best story ive seen in a Beat'em Up. ive played the arcade of CS and all i can say so far its way better balanced the CT.

What's up?

    KORNdog [url] so cool (21 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (23 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (30 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (1 Hour ago)
