Bitmob: Bring the pain: How insane damage helps Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has incredibly damaging combos with no escape once you're locked in. And that's a good thing. (BlazBlue, Culture, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not sure if I like MVC3's increased damage or not. I'm mostly interested in working with top-tier characters (online that is), so...I guess only time will tell whether or not this balances the game.

As for playing with less-experienced friends, this game is a ton of mash-y fun. I've been playing the "Vs." series since before it was the "Vs." series. Marvel Super Heroes introduced the basic combo system, and the "Magic/Aerial Rave/whatever they are calling it now" combo system is more intuitive than ever. It's very easy to teach to noobs. I play and experiment with newer, weirdo characters like M.O.D.O.K. and Hsien-Ko while by friends kick my ass.

Then I go online and use advanced zoning tactics, X-Factor cancels, and triangle jumps. I win, I lose...it's also lot of fun for advanced players.

But yeah...the damage thing.... It's really interesting because I don't know if a character like Phoenix will turn out to be good or bad. She deals craploads of damage, but she can also be wiped of the screen in one combo.
