    Singapore is a fine city!
  1. Hmm. Never really cared for Jubei but good that he's in, at least we won't be hearing about his absence any more. But goddamn, RWBY? That's super hype. I'm already wonder who else is going to make the cast apart from Ruby herself. Also, if this tag game is going to have any chance at all of making it to PC, ASW will need to figure something out with Atlus (and maybe bring P4A over for that matter).
  2. The reason I stated is speculation at this point, since I don't know if anyone has actually unpacked the archives to look into them.
  3. Playing the Steam port of BBCF. The 52GB is pretty ridiculous, apparently it's due to leaving most (or all?) of the assets uncompressed. Loading times seem slightly longer than those in the BBCPE port, not sure how it fares against the console version. There are some technical issues with performance, but I fixed it using the Nvidia control panel to force the game to use the dedicated GPU (it uses the onboard Intel card by default), and playing on windowed fullscreen (locks at 50FPS when I play on fullscreen). Once those were done, the game ran flawlessly for me. I think most of the port complaints were due to the increased system requirements (apparently some could get BBCPE to run well on Intel cards and were expecting the same), and issues with pixellation (no comment since it looks not much different from BBCPE's port to me).
  4. I think ASW Universe mentioned on their Facebook page that the PC announcement would be coming soon. I have a feeling it might not be a simultaneous release in that case, or that they have some unanticipated issues with adding post-release DLC on Steam.
  5. If CF Extend were coming to Steam, what you said about no new updates would be more likely. As things currently stand, given how Rev 2 is going to be DLC for all platforms, and the fact that Steam is getting CF and not a CF Extend, I think it's too early to jump to conclusions.
  6. Thanks, was looking for an official source though! But I found out from a quick Google that it's from the ArcSys Fighting Game Awards announcement, so it's all good.
  7. I'd really like the random character button to be in the middle instead of the bottom right corner. Also, I might have missed something, but where does it say that it's paid DLC and not a full release? Preferably an official English announcement, if any, but I'll take what I can get.
  8. Aaaand I caved in and bought it anyway oops. Anyway, what's the verdict regarding episode mode and story mode? Should I complete one before the other, or does it not (really) matter like in BlazBlue?
  9. The price is quite scary. Difficult to decide if I want to jump in now, or wait a little longer (another 6 months?) for a better price. However, considering the perspective that ASW needs a signal that PC ports are worth developing...
  10. Lack of basic BBCF info?

    Can the info on Discord be moved to the main forum in any way? Why would anyone think that keeping it on the Discord channels is a good idea?
  11. I'm guessing that the BBCF PC port will arrive no earlier than the Revelator PC port.
  12. Wow, I wasn't expecting any RWBY references, this is pretty cool! On hindsight, it's not that surprising since I think Mori did say he wanted to make an RWBY game or something (which is also how I discovered RWBY, in any case).
  13. ArcSys OST Discussion

    I didn't know about the relation to old traditional Japanese singing, but point taken. However, its rap-like nature, and it being combined with such a downtuned riffs (I'm guessing drop C?) brings nu-metal to mind, sorry. I stand corrected regarding 'Sword Of Doom II', since I just remember the composer's name when it comes to soundtracks. Actually I only recently found out that the vocalist who sang on 'Sword Of Doom II' is also the vocalist from Light Bringer which I remembered as a Japanese power metal band with very good, soaring vocals. And yes I do get that the track is ultimately about Terumi who is basically unhinged or something (I try not to read too much on Central Fiction for now to avoid spoilers), so thematically that might fit with the crazy (but still cringeworthy) vocals.
  14. ArcSys OST Discussion

    The comparisons of 'MUST DIE' with the Revelator Raven theme are inevitable... but goddamn the vocals here are really cringeworthy. This is especially so in the first half of the track, where we have the pitched 'singing' with pig squeals (used occasionally in death metal) overdubbed with it. The problem with the pitched parts is that they sound like angry, comical wailing. If comedy was what they're going for, they've aced it in the first half. The rest of the theme is pretty good - particularly the chorus sections with added strings and the harmonised vocals (not unlike some parts of the Raven theme), and the guitar solo (though I wish they extended the solo, they were on to something good here!). I really hope there's an instrumental version too. Vocals in Daisuke Ishiwatari's tracks have generally been good ('Sword Of Doom II' and the vocal version of 'Justice Sword' being the crowning examples of this in my honest opinion). The vocals in the Raven theme are, at the very least, carried with enough conviction to sound convincing. I'm not sure what led him to think having those vocals in 'MUST DIE' was a good idea. Edit: 'HAKAISHIN' sounds damn amazing. The sitar and the flute solos playing over the riffs is bliss. It heavily reminds me of 'Bloodline' (which is always a good thing).
  15. Whatever that theme that's playing in some of the Susanoo videos is... it's awesome. Not sure how I feel about the guy barking some vocals in the background, but those riffs...........
