BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma location test footage, notes from Fukuoka on Bullet

Posted by SFilp • November 12, 2012 at 2:13 p.m. PST
Some shaky camera footage of the recent BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma location test from Taito Station in Japan has been posted by KyushuFGC. Kyushu also managed to talk to a Bullet player named Fukuoka who placed 3rd in Persona 4 Ultimate Mayoaka Arena.

Fukuoka stated that he thinks Bullet is a pretty strong character, however she needs to use Head Up as soon as possible because she's slow without it. He also noted her air dash is quite strong, if you get a running start.

Bullet might be the most boring character design in the history of fighting games. Seriously. She belongs in doa.

Personally I don't really care about her design, since she looks like the first character I'd like to play based on moveset rather than based on character design, other than Tager. And those are the only ones I really play when it comes down to it.

Hmm... so what you're saying is a character with big boobs is automatically a "boring" character. If you want to say a character design looks boring, look at Mikoto. All she's wearing is a Gi.

SFilp you messed up the player's name.

@5 It doesn't, so no.

@5

No no no. Arc System knows better than that. No pandora or lame sh*t here.

@2

Someone calling any Arc System's characters "boring" cares far too much about the character model. I mean I think Hazama is the dumbest looking "boss" character ever but hes got ridiculous moves and is a serious beast, so who cares if he looks lame.

But you are right to throw DOA to the dogs. Even the latest installment makes me feel like I'm playing DOA on a Dreamcast.

Lol ask the guy who posted the video some of the payers there were saying this. Doesn't mean it's going to be as broke of gimmicky as xfactor but they have one too now

Great... It better not let people win a match that they clearly lost. I don't mind something useful in the sense that you can combo more or are faster for a few seconds, but I would hate to see a 1/16 hp player come back and win against a guy he barely touched all match.

I just checked the videos, and no icon or anything on the screen in general looks new, so either BB x-factor is a lie or their is no way to tell if you used it or not.

Is this Head Up thing mentioned in the article the so called x-factor?

mrambitious said on November 12, 2012 at 5:28 p.m.

Oh no....

http://blazblue.wikia.com/wiki/BlazBl...

go to new game mechanics section, x-factor is 100% true.

@ 11 BB's overdrive is more around enhancing a character's drive then just giving them a power and speed boost. So I don't think its going to be that over the top.

#12
DumbDLC said on November 12, 2012 at 5:42 p.m.

Lol told you. Not everyone is trying to troll but I understand your caution. I didn't see anyone use it so I don't know if its anything to worry about yet just surprised they put it in there.

#13
ZenTzen said on November 12, 2012 at 5:45 p.m.

@11
but its not, overdrive functions more like an install, for example Ragna overdrive is his instal super from previous games, Tager just basically puts the other character on magnet status while its active, Bang is his Furinkazan super, other characters get their drives strengthened and this carries a huge risk because if you use it you basically lose the ability to use green burst for that round

Maybe I messed up when I wrote the tip but the player's name is Shingo and he placed 3rd at SBO in P4U.

DumbDLC said on November 12, 2012 at 6:06 p.m.

@14 it was the japanes players who were saying it was a bb version of xfc said that it can be used kinda like umvc version

#2 cry more please. we'll see how boring it is when shes handing your ass. I think she looks the coolest out of the three new characters. her stance is dumb tho

the New BB characters are pretty meh especially Bullet and the cross dresser guy. Glad the Murakumo units are back at least. Nice that the combat is taking a step away from previous alliterations to improve itself by reworking burst system ala GG/P4A style, making combos noticably shorter yet still effective, and adding a universal "X-Factor" esque for each character which is pretty much a character specific buffer.

@17: Did I say she would suck? No. Gameplay wise, she looks fine. But her appearance is hella boring. Oh look, a booby lady. Didn't BB already have one of those? Oh no, see, this one has WHITE hair. totally different thing.

SSSSSSSSNOOOOOOOORE.

It's a shame, because her moveset looks pretty slick. If only they could've put the same effort into the art design.
