    Not bad, not bad. I sold my PASBR long ago to get needed money, but this should please people who still play it.

    At least they're fixing the balance of the game via updates unlike the company behind Bash Sisters does with their game. :tpi:

    Are these like bug fixes or nerfs/balance issue fixes?
    Oh wait, never mind. "Balancing patch", the source says.

    After you've fought Kratos enough, you learn to dodge his super 3. You have too since almost everyone uses the OP characters since they want to win.

    Ok, people are saying that wherever this is posted, I'm going to say this, and also add it to the OP:

    It's vague as hell. One fix might be "Kratos - 25% reduction damage on all attacks", we don't fucking know, stop complaining until the details are revealed.

    Bowl of Spiders corrected me.

    Kratos
    --- Last hit of Square Combo is now increased from 0 to -10 on block.
    --- Reduced blocked frame disadvantage on 2nd neutral square to -10 from -14.
    --- Neutral Triangle - In certain situations, this move could previously gain up to 40 AP. It should now only gain 20 AP in all situations.

    I actually do enjoy this game quite a bit and I'm glad they're still updating it and balancing it. I think it really has potential to game at least some cult popularity as a tourny fighter.

    It's more like a balancing patch.

    Which is a bit absurd to me seeing as how quickly they're releasing these and how underdeveloped the metagame is so far. I don't even like this game that much but it disturbs me to see the kneejerk " omgOP nerf plz" LoL culture leak into and affect fighting games.

    The entire game only needs three fixes, not 133.

    First fix: remove all Sony characters.

    Second fix: get Nintendo to make it with Nintendo characters.

    Third fix: release it on Nintendo consoles only!

    Master troll 2013 strikes again! :tpi:

    Most of them weren't bugs, they were character balance changes.

    But what I don't get is that Kratos felt kinda OP the last time I played, yet there are only 3 fairly minor changes to him.

    IMO the game was fun, but just not as fun as Super Smash Brothers. I like the idea of flying further and further after taking more and more damage, resulting in tons and tons of kills, and even skilled players had to be careful when they had a high percent.
    This game does away with all that, which really kind of ruined it for me.

    If they ever change it's gameplay to be similar to that, or make a new game like that, I'd be all over it, I'm sure.

    My "I don't have PSABR" situation has been rectified - just bought it for $30.

    Can't wait till monday when I can pick it up from the store, woot! :D

    As per the whole "I like Smash Bros. cause you can make people fly", that concept in this game would be completely awful. Like PASBR and Super Smash Bros. are apples and oranges. When the game is about combos (like this), having your opponent fly across the map completely defeats any combo-based system. Plus you want to keep enemies close to keep hitting them for AP, and then eventually hit them with an AP attack.

    I like Smash Bros. a lot but I can't say I like it more since the two games play so differently. It's kinda like comparing Marvel vs. Capcom to Super Smash Bros. You can't really do that.

    As I said before, I like this game and with a bit of balancing it has some real potential amongst today's modern fighting games. And yeah I like the roster too. You can't complain about Spyro and Crash all the time, and with the exception of them (and their exception has a real reason), it's a solid cavalcade of Sony characters. I think my only complaint is choosing Raiden over Old Snake, Big Boss, or The Boss. I may just nab the Kat, Emmet, Zeus, and Isaac DLC too.

    I saw PASBR and wondered why Pabst Blue Ribbon beer needed fixing.
