Cool I was annoyed By Ryu's duffel Back Falling incorrectly. who cares about sf3 extra stages of new generation and Double impact.

Ok that sounds like a sarcastic whyner,but at least give people option to buy the stages and don't just keep them in vault . Don't want to have to play an entirely separate version to have fun.

Is the netcode really that bad compared to other ASW fighting games? If so I'll be skipping GG even though I loved the games in the past.

They wasted their time and money on that MVC:O patch, seeing as how literally nobody plays it.

All my fellow Rank 0 people on 3rd Strike, let us go forward in our stuck stasis and continue to rock out! lol

The BB netcode is fine, GG's just happens to be much worse. Not really sure why.

I was just playing SF3OE local vs on PS3 last night and I just have to say the menus after each match annoy me so much. I also noticed when both players choose to go back to the character select screen, the winner can't change characters. You have to exit out and go through the main menu again. Does anyone know if that's how it was before the patch or if there's any way to turn that off?

The +R patch is out on xbox and has been out for quite some time now. The game on xbox does suffer from 1 frame of lag though, so if you plan on playing on xbox do plan on adjusting for that. I know I had to for my offline scene.

You know i'm excited to see support for these games in this manner but i have to ask why not Umvc3,i'm aware of the licenses running out and yada yada but in no way is this game worthy of the Ultimate title, i'm not hating i still enjoy the game offline i simply want the best for the game and the community that supports it.

Nobody plays it because of a huge oversight, that online speed isn't turbo.

ElHiznahn said on March 5, 2014 at 2:14 p.m.

They still didn't fix the issue of the non-default music resetting between rounds in 3SO. Idiots.

why can I still not get Guilty Gear Accent core in Europe? cmon already ah well. I have learnt my lesson and have already preordered my import of Blazblue Chronophantasma no waiting an extra few (or more) months for me this time.

#19
NoizyChild said on March 5, 2014 at 3:55 p.m.

Uh uh.

Nobody plays it because both games are broken beyond belief.

The few high-level players on those games ran what little casual players they had off, then quit playing due to that oversight/boredom.

It was literally deserted after a month.

I wanted to play Accent Core Plus So i Searched for it and found out that there's an European exclusive Version of Accent Core plus for the PS2.
And that's what I've been playing recently :).
It's the same exact game without the online components so it's great to play with friends next to you :P.
I would love to have accent core plus R on my PS3 Though but oh well :)
