Played TvC at work today.

Ryu is a fucking beast...along with Tekkaman and Karas.

I was just really wanting to know what is unlocked OOB (out of box) and what I've got to grind to get. Like I said, I'm not a mega SF player and kinda upset that I couldn't get X color or Y taunt due to not getting past a trial or challenge.

All characters are unlocked from the word go.

I knew that much at least, from reading the articles is Game Informer.

I'm just wanting to know if the colors / attires are going to have to be unlocked thru DLC or thru the trials / challenges like in SFIV.

The second costumes have to be paid for. If you already paid for them, you'll have them. We don't know about the new third costumes. Or colors. I'd put money on having to unlock, just because there's nothing else to unlock in the game.

TvC is pretty great. I love Jun The Swan, Ippatsuman and Alex. Collected the endings for Batsu and Ippatsuman. Can't wait to go through and unlock some more stuff.

Just wanted to say that my only complaints (apart from the easy-fied control scheme) are the pretty naff endings. The credits kind of make up for it.

Assuming naff means "bad," I agree. After the first few, I just quit reading them.

After playing this game for a while, I thought it might be neat to watch the new Yatterman anime. Turns out only the first three episodes have been fansubbed, but those three are pretty wacky.

I liked the ending I got for Karas, but that's the only one so far that I've played through with.

How the hell do you unlock Frank West, etc. in this game??

Joe the Condor   Get 6 different Tatsunoko characters' Arcade endings.
Tekkaman Blade   Get 3 different Tatsunoko characters' Arcade endings.
Yatterman-2   Get Frank West, Zero, Tekkaman Blade, and Joe the Condor's Arcade endings.
Zero   Get 6 different Capcom characters' Arcade endings.

I have major dislike for the final boss's 3 stage battle.  There is a hidden minigame in the credits, push 1 or 2 and you get to ride a bike, and collect the letters spelling "thanks for playing".  Its oddly quite hard, as you have to jump gaps in the road etc.

The final boss is incredibly easy if your character has a decent projectile. With Ryu, all you need is a bunch of Hadokens until your meter fills up followed by a Shinku Hadoken. Rinse and repeat.

Hot damn! I must have this game; I'm going to have to buy a Wii, just to have this game. Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets is my favorite animated series of all time, ever. You fuckers don't know how long I've been waiting on there to be a G-Force game.

I just saw a video that had Joe the Condor and Jun the Swan do the Whirlwind Pyramid as a super combo. I don't need to see shit else; I am fucking SOLD!

Do you have to play on the harder difficulty settings to unlock everything.

I really hate unlocking things...I'll enjoy the game just the same with everything already unlocked, video game designers!

I don't really care for unlocking things, either. There's no difficulty rules for it, though. After a while, I just turned the difficulty down to 1 and used Ryu. Pick him and whomever you need to beat it with. Ryu destroys everbody, then the second character comes in to get the final hit on the giant and the final boss.

With Marvel vs. Capcom 2, everything was unlocked after you logged so much playing time in...so I would turn the PS2 on at 5am before work, set up a training session and let it run ALLLLL day long.  That I can get with again.

My biggest problem with unlocking things is that there are some guys I just plain couldn't use...notably the big guys like Zangief, Honda, T. Hawk and Blanka.

You know I was playing BlazBlue last night and originally I could only play Noel up till then successfully. Suddenly I'm able to play Jin, Taokaka, Nu, Litchi, and Rachel. Some I had varying degrees of success with, but it was still surprising considering I hadn't picked up a fighter in months.

Maybe by the time Continuum Shift comes out, I'll actually have a sub for Noel finally.

Though, I still suck against Tager.

Sorry luke-o, but I went with the PS3 version, because I've been told by my fighting friends that they'll be getting the PS3, I went with that.

I've also been told to pick up Marvel vs. Capcom to increase my reaction times, as its a more fast paced game and I could use that to become better. So I'll probably do that.

For all the flak it got for not having a storymode, KOFXII was a pretty decent stand alone fighter. I had some fun with it, but if you're going to check it out, try to get it for cheap or rent it first. Outside of that, the only other one I can think of off the top of my head would be Battle Fantasia (it came out in 2008). It's kinda shallow but very stunning, visually.

Honestly, though, I think you'll be set with BlazBlue. I spent a shit load of time on that game and still have only scratched the surface. I really need to get into it again before the sequel comes out.
