Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On mechanics

Here's my very early guess at a tier list based on an unfinished single player demo. Apharmd S He is unbeatable, for he can crash the game anytime in just one second by simply doing a backward transition dash. I'll keep the input secret for now but it's easy and can be deduced by anyone who studies ...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CU-3urODQE8 Angelan wins the pre-release VO Index tournament. Not surprising, she is really powerful. Overpowered at a glance, but half the characters are. Unlike the others though she doesn't rely so much on any one broken technique, and things may have changed since...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

Partially customizeable parameters makes sense considering the stat discrepancies between the player VR and the opponent VR that I discovered in the demo, such as HP, knockdown resistance, and VW damage.

A Certain Magical Virtual-On mechanics

Here's my interpretation of the mechanics based on the playable demo. May this serve either as a historical archive of mistakes after they fix the actual release, or a foreshadowing of insanity and imbalance to come. This is an entirely new game and is the most different in terms of mechanics. Overa...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

If local direct link works on PS4, I would be surprised if they didn't have it. If the PSN servers go down someday, that would be the only way to play each other.

I don't think digital releases need pre-orders.

Re: Fate/Grand Order VR and Soul Calibur 6

This Fate/Grand Order look at Shielder girl VR game is great. It is the best waste of $200 ever. It's really good for guys who don't have a lot of time because it can be completed in a few hours but you can still play it over and over if you want to look at the girl some more. The PS VR has a few pr...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

A couple of the store exclusives are digital wallpapers. Dengeki recently added a second exclusive bonus, a PS4/Vita background theme, which I noticed when I placed my proxy order. Making them slightly less of a ripoff. There is no image of the theme yet. Dengeki must have gotten a lot of pre-orders...

Re: Free Gold weekend

There's another $1 month of gold offer on the dashboard until January 4. There are no good games so I may not utilize it since I may be busy preparing for my Japan trip. Microsoft has changed the way they bill monthly ($10 ripoff) subscriptions now. The bill now occurs on a set date and is no longer...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

Cost breakdown of all store exclusive bonuses that have listed prices. Some interesting patterns. First is the hidden price of just the bonus, relative to AmiAmi's discounted "street" price, using the PS4 Limited Edition as it can vary with other versions. In parenthesis is the formula to ...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

You mean the PS4 version artbook? Yeah I'd already decided on it, probably with the misaka poster (even though it costs more with the limited edition). After the demo came out I decided I liked the music enough to want the soundtrack and that made the decision easy. I'll order via proxy with From Ja...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I'm pretty sure most VRs can dodge it, you just have to keep running, but you can't stop because the rain follows you around. I'm not sure but it might get harder to dodge the longer you run and you might be forced to get hit a little at the end. You must run fast, a transition dash may not be fast ...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

Being forced to use the analog stick is fine with me so far in this game. One of the main reasons to use the dpad instead was that watari dashing might be easier on it, but since they changed the input and added restrictions to basic watari dashing, that no longer matters. The dpad is still slightly...

Re: Deals thread

I went back and got a PS VR bundle from Gamestop for $200. I also got their free version Rewards card which appears to give 1% back on all purchases, unfortunately it does not work retroactively for my PS VR and PS4 Pro purchases. (It should, because I could in theory return these and buy them again...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I just got my FromJapan shipment so they are legit. The box they used was way oversized, demolished and totally open, and seemed empty, but fortunately the contents were inside and seem totally undamaged. Actually I don't think they repacked so it was the original Chara-ani store that packed it this...

Re: Deals thread

I tried to get the PS4 slim from Gamestop on black friday for $150 but it was sold out. The PS4 slim at $200 never sold out at other stores, they all have stacks. I just bought a PS4 pro from Gamestop on the current sale for $350 (comes with free Star Wars Battlefront II which I'll probably sell). T...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWUSwNdhr9w Whats this? Fate/Grand Order PS4 VR game where all you do is look at Shielder girl? I guess its good if its free, but the VR headset costs a lot. Maybe its to make people buy the VR. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1sdAmSq4vs Also, they just announced Sou...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I just started using FromJapan, switching from Japonica Market, as my proxy service a few months ago, too. Their fees are crazy cheap, it's actually totally free or minimal, considering they are a full proxy service that takes care of payment, and not just a reshipper. However, it's getting close to...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I guess I didn't notice, then. Since I can't read or understand Japanese, I wonder if the limited edition Vita stuff would be good for me. Is the CD going to have music or just talking? I don't need drama CDs. On the other hand what if the book has the Misaka poster picture and the other store-exclu...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

That just looks similar to the Force tutorial. I'm not sure if this was clarified recently or if we just failed to notice earlier, but the limited edition stuff is entirely different between the Vita and PS4 versions. The PS4 limited editions are similar to what was in the Force limited edition, but...
