I hope that's a shoryu!
Yeah, I remember seeing that from the promo vid a while back of her.  She zips around with stabs, shoryus, and dive attacks all over the place.

Not certain if they're guard primers, we have yet to get a video where we see a situation where the meter goes down. That and it looks like you can actually encroach on the other player's side (seen here in the first trailer), so maybe you get some sort of big Astral-esque super if you get all of it.

Also looks like you can take off half of a point. Yeah, I'm confused.
Ah yeah, I didn't pay attention to that at all in that trailer.  Yeah, looks like you can gradually fill up or deplete them.  Guess they're probably not like guard primers after all!

In the first trailer there's a scene where the meter goes down. At 0:57. Look at Linne's meter. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eFpH_6ReWo&feature=player_detailpage#t=57s

That looks like some kind of iHEAT.

In the combo against Carmine where Linne loses 100 meter? Seems more like an EX attack to me.

Looks like Waldstein is completely out of Seed gauge at 1:08. He's being comboed though, so that doesn't actually tell us whether or not it was his guard getting broken. Just shows that the gauge doesn't automatically refill after it hits 0.

Damn it's been a good set of days, more on Skullgirls (been watching some Friday night fights with MIke Z and the other programming staff), more on UNIB....



On the other hand? If French Bread and Ecole are indeed serious about having a port out in a timely fashion, they could opt to do like SNKP and start working on a console port in tandem with the arcade release, so that they could work out these issues sooner, rather later. I remember there was a lot of talk about this game having a substantial bit of "Visual Novel" aspects in the mix. Obviously, such things would be more appreciated in a port than they would in the arcades, where it's highly likely they won't even be seen by a number of players.

I am not so sure that having a "VN-like" aspects would go unnoticed in the Arcade setting, given that one of the bigger targets of UNIB is the MB-fanbase. Having that in the game once it hits the cabs is almost an expected, it would be hard to show it to the MB players otherwise.  But you are right, even with that... it would take more time to create into something more substantial for the Console/PC market (knowing that they would expect more the second that you say "Visual Novel").
The other thing that I would have to point out is I am not sure that FB/Ecole would want to miss out on the information that the arcade setting would give them to hammer out a port, I expect a decent release to cab but not perfect... alot of that data would help with balance changes to the system once the choice comes down to port the game. It would be hard to overlook that which is useful, PS3-issues be damned. The last thing that you want is a zero-day balance patch on release... that would be a bad sign.



Quote
But, we'll see what happens sooner or later, right? In any case, we'll likely be waiting anywhere between 6-12 months after it starts its run in the arcades anyway, so the sooner the arcade release happens, the better!

That we can all agree on.

Also does anyone else think that the "Seed" meter thing at the bottom looks kind of like guard primers?  ...lol, there's probably a lot of people that won't be happy with that statement.

^Psh. Doubt that. This is supposed to be their money maker after all, they'd wanna go big.
Or at least I hope they do.
I want a PS3 port. I can go either way, but I want PS3.

Also. Gordeau interested me from the get-go, since I saw his concept art.
That scythe just screams "POKE POKE".
IDK wth Snatcher means tho. Long range grabs with the "debowler"? Stealing meter?

They've already mentioned their heavy interest in ps3 port multiple times, I dunno why this is even being questioned.

Don't get too excited about that scythe, yet.  There are just as many screens up of Gordeau without his scythe out as there are with it, so it might be something that you have to command summon or only works for specific attacks, etc.  *shrugs*

Well, sure, it's geared towards MB players. But an arcade release is geared towards those arcade MB players who value the competitive aspects of the game, first and foremost. What content of that sort which may be present in arcade release will likely just be recorded and put on Youtube/Nico soon enough for people to enjoy, relish for a little while and then go back to playing Vs.

Having said that though, French Bread will probably be just fine doing what their rivals at ASW has been doing for a number of years now: have the full-fledged VN Story Mode reserved for the home release.

If the Persona fighter can have a breakdown like that, surely UNIB can do the same. 

But anyway, I like scythe dude. Can't wait to see him in motion.

Just a summary of the official website's updates and some character profiles. Still in Japanese but text form so you can google translate that if you want. Bad summary of what I got of the story,

In the year 20XX  :psyduck: it's widley accepted that science can disprove any strange phenomena in the world. However in later years rumors begin to emerge about 'Cannibal Shadows' aka UNREAL BLACK THINGS. If a human has his own shadow eaten by the Shadow, they become Night Hollows that forever wander the earth as dead zombie things.

Hyde's your typical sword-wielding Japanese highschooler. No real interest in trivial things and doesn't give a crap about some silly rumors of cannibal shadows, yet somewhere in his heart he yearns for excitement and adventure in his life. As luck would have it, one day while walking home from school Hyde encounters an UNREAL BLACK THING quickly approaching him. Linne, a girl on a mission, encounters Hyde by chance and saves him and they form a companionship to fight off the remainder UNREAL BLACK THINGS.

Actually I have no idea if he's Japanese or not (or where UNIB takes place for that matter) I just assumed as much from his crazy get up and sword. ┐('~`;)┌ He is a highschooler though and did encounter the black thing on his way home from school.

Waldstein's also like a guardian figure for Linne and Carmine's just nuts.

What content of that sort which may be present in arcade release will likely just be recorded and put on Youtube/Nico soon enough for people to enjoy, relish for a little while and then go back to playing Vs.
I am not so quick to push that off... for two reasons. First off, the competitive nature of the game pretty much comes with the genre. If you even dare call any game a fighter, then that is something that you have to take into account. And given how long MB has lasted in that environment, I don't think that FB would be shy about having that in the game.  So it bought that it would be so much of a worry.

Second, again... The MB fanbase is a little larger than the hardcore players. With another game from the same makers, you have to assume that they are some expectations with the release. Being somewhat "VN-like" would be one thing that MB had from way back. That said, what is in the Arcade release of it and the Console port are two different matters. It's a fighting game, so FB will only relay get away with so much before it detracts from the action... In the Arcade that line is much finer than for consoles. At best, it's simply going to be a strict "story" for the Arcades since the action itself has be to in people's eyes and upfront.

We'll see what P4U does when it get out here, but I would somewhat expect that a bit.

Orie does look curious, I would like to see more of her in action.

They've already mentioned their heavy interest in ps3 port multiple times, I dunno why this is even being questioned.
They want to do doesn't mean that they will, and honestly.... After the "NESiCAlive speculation"....
I would question it.

Second, again... The MB fanbase is a little larger than the hardcore players. With another game from the same makers, you have to assume that they are some expectations with the release. Being somewhat "VN-like" would be one thing that MB had from way back.

You are correct, but overlooking one thing. A great majority of the MB fanbase = Type Moon fans. In fact, the main reason MB did a lot to gain ground as it did, was relying on Type Moon and its fans to help spread the word about what was a great game that served as a (almost) continuation to the Tsukihime storyline and seeing more of their favorite characters.

You know how BlazBlue struggled a bit at its outset (and still does, to some degree), because it's "NOT Guilty Gear"? I can't help but think it will likely be even harder for FB's new product, because in this case, there's no Type Moon branding. Visual Novel aspects in the mix for UNIB or not, it likely won't be compelling enough for those who just want more TM familiarity.

When FB decided to strike out on their own, they were also willing to give up that security blanket that came from having that TM license and die-hard fanbase. Admirable, in a number of respects, but it also means that they effectively have to start from scratch. In fact, a lot of what I've seen thus far showcases that the main ones hyped for this game are the ones who love MB because of it being a fun fighting game and less because of its connection to the "Nasuverse" or whatever. It probably is telling that FB markets UNIB the most at events where those types of people (re: tournament players) stand to be in attendance, in my opinion. Because if they can't sell the game to those players, who else do they have left?

It's not really starting from scratch when you've proven yourself to be able to make a game that stays in top 5 arcadia rankings for fucking ever.  Reputation is important.  They're an established company at this point, so they can venture into their own original IP without as much worry.  I think they're doing a great thing, and as long as they stick with the game to make it good, it'll be successful without relying on TypeMoon.
