Yeah. The gems are kind of whack, but so far they haven't been game breaking or anything. I'd recommend giving SFxT a try, but as a Marvel player, you may find it a little boring. It's sort of slow. There are also a crazy amount of time-outs.
Whether he's on the mic or playing, IFC | Yipes is a killer. His Magneto is sick and his commentary is always entertaining.
I can't play Marvel anymore. I don't have the reaction time I used to. I just get frustrated. I still try and keep up with the tournament scene though. I haven't played AE2012 in awhile either, but that's more of my thing. (I'm not tournament worthy or anything.) Skullgirls is a lot of fun so far. I love the graphics and art style. The online play is also better than both Marvel and AE. (It uses GGPO netcode.) As far as extras go, the game is pretty bare bones. It's only 15 bucks though, so I can't complain.
I know it's blasphemy, but I'm also a little tempted to get into that MK9!
What is up with the Timeout's I keep hearing about? I've yet to try the game, yet I've heard many complain of this. And no, I havn't bothered watching any vids yet---I want a nice [i]Tabula Rasa[i] for this game so I can get creative with combos and characters...
Marvel is tough....trust me I wanna smash my fightstick probably once a night due to online lag and just straight up finger fumbling on my part....haha! Yipes is the man.....I was just watching a new team he's rolling....very impressive so far. Have you seen any of the new Viewtiful Joe bomb technology people are doing? There are literally psuedo-infinites now where you can carry a combo on indefinitely....I'm working on a Magneto team with this setup....still trying to find my other perfect part of this team though....
I owned MK9 for a little while....learned the robots and was doing pretty good. The thing is, the game isn't set up for combos because you can't hit confirm anything....so for me, I was doing insane combos that were extremely ineffective for the hit scaling and damage output....but it was fun while I played it. Cyrax and his bombs make for some really cool set ups and interesting combos.
You on PS3?
