Just going to copy and paste my very early impressions. I'll post some more updated impressions later.

So fluid, so fierce, so fast, so very NG but so much more. I've really only messed with the DS at this point, haven't messed with the other weapons yet but I'll get around to it. Acolyte is the only difficulty available and while it was too easy the AI was as relentless as ever. These guys swarm you and don't let up. Despite the fact they can't cause much damage to you the fights are still freakin' intense and so d*** satisfying. The fights are so good I wish there was a replay button just so I can do the encounter all over again. Every encounter gives me this feeling too. The combat feels perfect. It feels looser but it doesn't effect your moves or timing at all. It feels awesome. After experiencing this I can't go back to NGB. It would feel way too stiff for my liking.

Loving the new strings and moves the DS got. Very nice improvements to the weapon.

I like what they did with Counters. Counter Attacking is a bit harder to do now. It requires better timing because you have to parry in a way in order to perform a counter. If you push X or Y Ryu will shift his sword, you want to catch an opponents attack during this animation in order to perform a counter. The counters are great and each counter gives you a lot of follow up options. The new X counter gives you so much more options to play with compared to the SKC of the previous NG's. Counters are not always guaranteed though, enemies can dodge them. I've seen them do it several times and it's just awesome. It really drives home the point that these guys are not just trying to kill you but they are also trying their best to survive.

There are no more time bonuses.

UT spamming is back and more abusable than ever. Bow UT and Scythe's UT are broken. The Karma system favors these two weapons more than any other it seems.

For those of you who are fairly tech-savvy, I'm working on a workaround for the IP block. If what I'm hearing is correct, though, and the demo is blocked for everyone, it may be pointless. I'll keep you posted though.

/shrug/


Karma was never really my thing anyways.


So, I was right in thinking the sythe was basically the new dabi, eh?

That's an expensive way of just spoofing your IP and running the 360 through ICS. I was going to do the free way with a public proxy. But it's proving more annoying than its worth.

Abuseable, but not worthwhile. OTs give 3000, UT give 5000. UTs often catch multiple opponents, while an OT mainly targets one, occasionally hitting others in the process. Kill more with UTs, less points than if they were all killed by separate OTs.

No, but I did watch the Gametrailers review. Another abysmal one. Listening to the guy attempt to sound like he knows what he's talking about is painful.
