I'm sick of it
I bought Blazblue the limited edition like nearly 2 month ago
And this is bulls...

Yeah DLC !
I don't give a crap about DLC
DLC is just an excuse to a game that isn't complete
well okay not really, but I feel that way

Same with Tales of vesperia...

Lelouch V Brit3043d ago

same here, I bought Blazblue the limited edition, I Can't believe this the companies love to screw customers.

mastiffchild3043d ago

So you'd prefer to be in the UK watching while the US plays the exact same version of games as you but have to wait ages to get them yourself and sometimes after all the Japanese and US gamers have deserted the online servers?

To me having to import the spec ed that you both have is still preferable to having to wait(and this is no kind of confirmation at all)til the "new year" all the time!

Plus you lot pay less than us so we deserve more content! Seriously it's swings and roundabouts and they have to make up for the wait in some way, don't they? Or should the EU wait longer and pay more and get nothing to make up for those evil facts? Be fair guys.

menoyou3042d ago

You're retarded if you can't see the difference between this and most of the other DLC. If these characters are even DLC which is not confirmed, it's obvious that they were not finished when the game was released. When people complain about DLC they are complaining about companies not including things that are already made just to squeeze money out of people.

People without brains shouldn't speak...

jack_burt0n3043d ago

Yay cos it December and new year is right around the corner!?!?1?!?1?!?

shaunmcilroy3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

Think it over, if you want you can actually import it to Europe and miss out on the added stuff. Or like most of the UK/EU who likely haven't heard of the title it doesn't matter anyway.

New Characters - YESSIR!

I do however, get your point, as Q1 2010 could very well mean March, more than likely Feb. :(

Tribunal3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )


new stuff =)
i wonder what it is cant wait

edit: i hope its the butler(new character)

Gun_Senshi3043d ago

i imported last week and costed me 100 usd

shaunmcilroy3043d ago

I really do feel sorry for you as I thought it would NEVER come this way

Gun_Senshi3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

I'm happy with current selection, Noel, Jin and Bang.

I hope I can play against european people, and EU people will not have advantage due to characters/new moves.

I soon got platinum (My 1st platinum ever) and soon level 30 (after I need to get 150 player matches for plat)

RayMustang3043d ago

We would be unfair
Unless they release DLC...

So it's Arcsysgames
I'll wait for

Blazblue: Calamity Trigger X, X-2, Accent core +

Gun_Senshi3043d ago

I think there will be no Accent Core Accenot Core + etc due to ease of DLC on Consoles.

If this holds true good thing I bought USA Version, there is no PSN Store where I live and I am unable to buy from other EU Stores, oddly enough USA accepts my credit card while EU stores say "Invalid CC"

RayMustang3043d ago

Oh well
It's just me, I just hate DLC (well 90% of it)
If they release Blazblue 2, the new character will mostly be on it
So why I'm gonna buy for about 5-7$ for one character, like the DLC maps for Halo 3 for their next game, Halo 3: ODST, all the maps will be on the second disk

Unless it's free it's okay...

That's weird for your credit card, did you import your PS3?

Gun_Senshi3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

No My PS3 is European, PS Store in Europe check your credit card address to see it matches which the country, of course mines does not.

Yes most DLC sucks horribly, like charging to unlock in game stuff *cough CAPCOM* or pay for some map that is free on PC.

Then there is DLC done right, like Valkyria Chronicles.

Baka-akaB3043d ago

Well at least US store stuff are usually cheaper , when you factor exchange rate .

Sprud3042d ago (Edited 3042d ago )


Have you actually tried that? I've bought stuff from the US store with my Norwegian VISA. Everything is cheaper that way too :)

shaunmcilroy3043d ago

it would have to be released as DLC anyway because you cant have folks with new characters playing worldwide...just wouldnt happen!

MiloGarret3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

So how do I go about getting the dlc which will probably only be available in the US Playstation Store? I imported it about a month ago and love it but I've been way to busy with Wipeout HD (I just beat Zico YESSS) to spend much time with it.

The promise of more characters is a welcome one though, that's pretty much the only thing about the game which IMO isn't 10/10.

I play as Nu, Taokaka or even Hakumen and I'm at level 28 with 70% win/loss ratio which I'm proud of cause I generally suck at fighting games. I despise Jin, Noel and Ragna players as they are pretty much all I ever play online... I guess if there were more characters people wouldn't use those 3 as much. Or maybe it's just cause it's so easy to play with them... either way (!), the online componenet would really benefit from more characters as it would bring more variety to the multiplayer.

shaunmcilroy3043d ago

You could probably get it off the PSN store somehow, there are always workarounds!

Sniper4303043d ago

using hakumen and nu would explain your 70% win ratio >.<

MiloGarret3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

Nu is overpowered, I know, but I only use her against players that have jin/noel/ragna as their main character on their Drive card. Hakumen is low tier and admittedly one of the worst characters in the game, so I don't see how that contributes to my ratio... Maybe your Jins just can't handle his awesomeness, because he is, AWESOME.

And this is besides the point, but my highest ratio is actually with Taokaka who is also my main.

ANd @Gun_senshi: I think I've played against you, I recongnize the name, and I only remember the names of people who beat me so congrats... I think!

Megaton3043d ago

lol @ Gun_Senshi bashing this dude for using Nu and Hakumen, while in post 4.2 you say you use Noel and Jin. Jin is retard-proof. Icecar + CCCCCCCCCCCCCC = win. He's worse than flowchart Kens in Street Fighter.

Baka-akaB3043d ago (Edited 3043d ago )

Well it's the same crap in so many fighting games online anyway .
Sadly people always pick the "scrubs characters" online , even more if they thrives better under lag .

Hell despite being quite balanced , at least more than SF4 and BB imo , i bet you'd see a swarm of kyo or iori online , with a dash of joe (his darn kicks and tiger are quite deadly) .
That is if online wasnt so dead in the water (while waiting for the miracle patch ) .

And hakumen is my fav char . Full of delicious flaws that prevent him from being a top tier dog , yet still very enjoyable .

yet , you should see how he constantly bash SF4 for imbalances and tiers , while BB as awesome as it is , isnt fairing better in that departement . And is actually even worse :p .

Veneno3043d ago

Best there is , best there was, and the best there ever will be....

why do you think they call it "The King of Fighters"?

Megaton3043d ago

@Baka - Yeah, I think it definitely has some balancing issues. I'm still not very good at BB, haven't even picked someone to main, but I've won several ranked matches in a row using Jin, against people as high as 47. It's too easy to win with him and his cheesy moves.

MiloGarret3043d ago

Nu and Arakune are waaaaaay too powerful when used by great players (not me), just pray you don't have to fight either of them when up against skilled players. I think Rachel is considered A+ too.

Hakumen, Tager and Carl are at the bottom (that's not to say they can be quite deadly in the right hands).

Jin, Noel and Ragna are easy to use and if you have any clue concerning fighting games you'll be more or less successful with either of them up to a certain degree using only meager skills. I recommend changing to someone else, because the "transition period" might be rough, also, I know for a fact that a lot of players simply refuse to fight Jin because they've become bored by him online.

Megaton3043d ago

I'd like to main Tao, but I can't really get into a combo groove with her. I hear Rachel is the best if you know how to use her properly, and cheesy Arakunes get on my nerves, stupid bees.
