Really excited for this beta. On the topic of the number of characters, I agree. 20 characters is just not enough. Even SSB Melee had more characters. I really hope they aren't saving characters for DLC, because that would probably unbalance the game. Plus, it's just a dick move.

Yeah, the beta is out now. The store usually updates at 6:00 PM EST.

Nothing new in terms of characters, it's the same amount as the closed beta. There's just the 2v2, friend invites and cross-play. NO TRAINING MODE they do have a tutorial, though.

and yeah, at this point I guess there's no news on any new characters. derp. DLC ahoy. :/

Yeah, and I always get the Ratchet and Clank stage the most, lol. Training mode is basically the tutorial, at least for learning the buttons even if it is Parappa, who people probably find the most hard....and I wonder if that's why he is the character they picked for that. Honestly though he is kind of just "lol kick punch kick throw" "omg skateboard and boombox!" he is just kind of ass. His boombox ftw, though I don't remember that in Parappa.

Welp I like Fat Princess still and I tried out Sly Cooper and liked him, even though he feels a little weird atm. Turning invisible helps you avoid so much supers and stuff lol. Kratos was okay, but whenever someone else uses him I feel like it's cheap as hell, I dunno he seems like he will be top tier, and so does Fat Princess because they can kill and gain super meter so damn quickly. We'll see though, some characters you think are broken end up being middle tier or lower because people find out how to negate stuff. A lot Kratos isn't totally spam like in God of War.

I played Killzone before and I want the games, but I still need to use Master Chief the *bleep*ing long ranged bastard Radec. I played Twisted Metal back when I was a kid too, and I still need to check out Sweet Tooth. But yeah some people just sat back and shot whenever it worked lol with Kratos and Radec. When I picked Kratos, EVERYBODY in my match was Kratos....Kratos is cool, but *bleep* him in this game.

Also the in game chat or whatever is weird. It would be annoying to hear people raging like on COD, you can probably mute on the real game though, and it's probably just in the beta. There is a lobby to talk in before game in the real game most likely. I never 2v2d in Brawl because it kind of sucked, but I could see myself doing it more in this game. I wonder if people will just play around like people do on Basic Brawls on SSBB lol. If there are lobbies before games you can plan that out better too if you just want to screw around with people. I dunno why there WOULDN'T be a lobby though, hah.

I had the first private beta before and this game is fun, super chaotic.....but still fun. I still need to play 2 vs. 2 with Sakuraba Neku. I fell asleep and I seen that he invited me when I woke up lol. Overall this is going to be a fun and good game, but I just wish there were some more characters and more than two female reps, at least Lightning from FF? .-.' All the characters that are going to be in the game are leaked/we know them already. It would be cool if they surprised us with DLC though. Aren't there any DLC characters? I thought there was but we just knew about them already. ;I

Lucky you with the all-Kratos match. The first game I played in the closed beta was literallyan all-Radec match. Projectiles bloody everywhere :/ In this beta I played a match with three Kratos players. Hopefully people will find much more niche appeal in the other characters that are meant to be the game; I don't know if I can take it anymore Dx

I want to do something like the combos in the trailer videos but without training mode the only real way to practice is to get a match going between four friends or something :/

My first game in this beta was four Kratos. Good times. I switched to Fat Princess and my first game with her was against three Kratos.

Kratos
Radec
Sly
Sweet Tooth
Fat Princess
Parappa

From most OP to least. From my experience, Kratos needs SERIOUS nerfing.

It is way too early to say if a character needs nerfs. The game isn't even out. Kratos is just easy, easy characters always perform really well early in a games life.

But you gotta admit his Square < is stupid. He grabs a character, stunning them, and builds his meter.

We can't really talk balance in terms of buffs/nerfs until we see what the other 16 characters can do. Kratos kills everyone else match-up wise so far but we'll have to see if that's still so when he goes up against Drake or Big Daddy, characters with the tools needed to keep him from rushing in.

I was just playing versus with Sakuraba Neku.

I found out that Radec has other moves other than forward triangle, heh. That's all the people on the beta online even do because people are bad and like to abuse moves, lulz. It's really annoying. It's not too cheap of a move, it's just annoying when it works on you and your team member. Radec doesn't seem to be as good in free for all though. Kratos is all spam spam spam spam spam spam too and I think he will get nerfed once or twice in the real game. You lose to a lot of dumb shit in this game. A lot of the characters in the beta have no moves to beat Radec or Kratos, lol. Sweet Tooth is retarded too because his moved have no *bleep*ing reach. .-.'

Kratos and Radec won't be as bad once the other characters come out because the other characters in the beta now have no reach at all and you have to get up SUPER CLOSE which seems impossible against those two right now. When there is a team of Kratos and Radec (best team atm), or Kratos and Kratos it's super annoying. Any team with Kratos or Radec is annoying at the moment now, lol. Once the other characters come out we won't see them as much probably....but Kratos will still get overused as *bleep* because a lot of people love him, he is easy, and spamspamspamspam. Right now Kratos and Radec DOMINATE the other characters, and I feel like people like Dante or Raiden will be good match ups against Kratos and Radec once the real game comes out.

The game feels stiff now and I hope it will feel different once it comes out, but yeah I bet once we all get the real game it will seem more relaxed. The one thing I hate is that it's so hard to keep track of character, and your name isn't even above your name. If someone else is the same character and or EVERYONE is, the colors don't stand out and you get lost.

The block button in this game is meh too, and having a block button is retarded in most fighters too, but I can understand why they did it in this game. It's kind of like Brawl. PS All-Stars is a little too chaotic though and I never remember to block at the moment anyways, lol. I don't think holding back like other fighting games would work in this game though, eh.

I'm not too impressed honestly, but it's decent at best right now just judging from the beta. I never though it would be SUPER good though so eh. I never thought it would be as Brawl either.

A lot of these beta builds are out dated/they give us extremely out dated betas. This build is better than the week one, but I bet they have a lot of newer builds. I don't understand why some game companies don't give us the newer betas if they have them, I mean don't they want us to have the newest builds so we can actually TEST bugs and stuff for them? Betas are more like demos anyways. Of course the first betas are what they test more for because it's the first one, and people talk about the bugs for those. But they should still give us newer builds if they have them to test that out too. None of us know how to combo and stuff now, but I feel like there are way newer builds and the fighting and comboing are a lot better.

It's hard as *bleep* to grab somebody/throw somebody too, because you have to basically be hugging the other player and that's hard as *bleep* with how chaotic the game is. The direction thing is hard to do too. I don't think there is enough buttons to even change them anyways, and they wouldn't work on arcade sticks unless you mapped out the stick like a super pro. I don't think arcade sticks will work well at all, because you will have to move your hands all over the place. Plus for the block button you would have to hold down a button and you would get screwed over and won't be able to use the other buttons well.
