Posts Tagged Unlimited Codes
Considering Act Cadenza is still installed on my comp, I have quite a bit of expectation for the likely unlimited codes Windows (or whatever they append on the end). Above video certainly didn’t ease that… Ilya the announcer (I’m in agreement with the “cuteness overwhelming” comments), and one hell of a Saber/Saber Alter player. Ending a combo with Vortigern looks really badass no matter how many times it’s done – not to mention the Vader-choke finish.
Another Trailer is up for the PS2 port-cum-upgrade-pack.
Aside from the usual package – new moves (Lancer finally gets his damn runes), five new characters (Bazett, Saber Alter, Leysritt, plus two yet unrevealed), cosmetics and aesthetics – the big surprise is what looks to be a whole new fleshed-out Story Mode that follows the routes in the game, and probably (hopefully?) others scripted by Nasu. I mean… damn I want a PS2 now.
As for the ever-popular discussion of secret characters… okay, so Leysritt was completely unexpected. Of the remaining two slots, going by popular demand, it would be Avenger and Iskander/Alexander. Though, left field being still filled with possibilities – like, say, True Assassin? Kuzuki? Someone (else) from the 4th? Issei??
DEFEATED SECUREDLY!-kun Shiki??? Arrrgh. – it’s hard to tell until CAPCOM actually comes out and says it.
How appropriate that my first entry after a long period of inactivity is news about unlimited codes. Anyway, following up on the previous blurb – like a month ago – the new trailer for the PS2 version is out. As usual, notes of interest:
* New characters Bazett and Saber Alter (aka Black Saber)
* Looks like Bazett plays like Kirei except with glowing fists (her runes). One of her counters is, obviously, Fragarach, which works like Saber’s Avalon, blocking the enemy’s attacks plus dealing damage back.
Archer finally gets his own Kanshou & Bakuya combo (unless that was already in, I’ve never seen it before) – Archer’s original version of the triple-strike that Shirou derived his own from. Actually, it’s a lot duller than Shirou’s, since he basically just swings three times… but Overedge is pretty awesome. Okay never mind, apparently it is already in. Huh.
* Black Saber is badass, that is all. Also, she has some sort of Vader-esque telekinetic choke move using, er, the curse-mud? Oh, and the two Excaliblasts can cancel each other out.
* Continuing on replicating scenes from the games, Lancer and Bazett effs each other up when Fragarach is used against Gae Bolg – they even keep the whole ‘Fragarach strikes but Gae Bolg ‘twists’ around it and keeps going’ CG sequence from hollow ataraxia.
So, with Black Saber in, I guess we’ll get some more unique scenes when she fights Rider or Shirou. Are there going to be more alternate outfits, or is Saber Lily just going to replace the white dress? (Hoping on the former.)
Now, secret character. It’s possible that there wouldn’t be one, but my guess would be True Assassin, Kuzuki, or Avenger. Of course, I don’t think anyone expected Luvia, either, so it could be completely from the left field… like Fuji-nee. Or Caren. Or Kiritsugu, or Irisiviel. It’s pretty hard to tell.
Fate/unlimited codes PS2 (what, they’re not putting some weird subtitle to it?) will be out December 18th.
Bazett’s in the PS2 version. Black Saber too, apparently.
(Nothing much to write about.)
Dark Sakura certainly has some… interesting… attacks. Incredibly, the jiggle is even bigger for Sakura than for Rider, as can be seen in the first link (a complete coincidence, by the way).
And apparently, the last boss for Sakura’s route is Sakura. Wait, what? The other Sakura does a move where the ‘ropes’ that cover the shoulders unlatches, ties the opponent down, and drags them into a pool of Angra Mainyu inky goodness. Then Sakura sort of… flaps around on it like a grounded seal.
Archer does a Rho Aias @ ~1:00 mark. Completely blocks a minor blast from Excalibur.
Very good Archer vs Rider. UBW finisher.
(This is just filler while I wait out the ridiculously long, eh, acquisition of Tsuukaku Zanryuu. Hell if I know why my connection has such perfect timing.)
It was surprisingly easy to get an account; I was wondering if I should use the Taiwan page to do it, but it turned out that was unnecessary. Basically, I hit the big “Register” button next to the logon bit (where most Register buttons generally go), filled in a page, got on Gmail, and verified it.
Speaking of which, has nobody unlocked Hassan yet? (Oh wait, there is no Hassan in this one.) Or Sakura for that matter. (Okay, I’m done spamming links now.)
“Why are you still doing this YouTube crap?!”
Kirei vs. Archer
It scares me how good these people have gotten. Also, Archer fires Hrunting. It leaves the screen and KO’s Kirei two seconds later.
Also – and I probably should’ve asked this earlier – why does Gil swing around Ea like that? What happened to the too-holy-for-mongrels clause?
Rin vs. Kirei
Otherwise generic, but apparently, one of Kirei’s alternate outfits is Kiritsugu’s trench coat and shirt. Also, Kirei shows off another Angra Mainyu release combo.
On the topic of alternate outfits, some we really need:
– Kirei: muscle shirt (as in, the one he wore at the end of Heaven’s Feel)
– Shiro: “my body is made of swords” (same as above)
– Sakura: the bloodied pink dress (or possibly the leather from the anime)
– Rin: Ruby, duh
– Saber: the black suit (if they’re saving Black Saber for the next iteration)
– Archer: without his mantle
(Think I’ve already seen a Rider with the Gorgon dress…)
Caster vs. Luvia
Some of Caster’s spells (like Ten no Hikari) are really interesting. But I know we’re all here for the Luvia wub.
Her Gandr attacks are even crazier than Rin’s, with a literal machine-gun spam as a combo (kind of like that man in Negima! who fires Sagitta Magica off his fingers).
It’s hilarious how she fights, though, like a funnier Rin. When she does that flying kick she actually holds her dress down. And that Gandr-powered bitch-slap… lol. And the sit-on-your-opponent-elegantly-then-blast-them-in-the-face.
But on a somewhat more serious note, what exactly is she hitting with? It makes that weird jewel ‘ting’ that Rin has, but there’s no jewel counter. But a lot of her moves does an odd sparkle, though Kirei has that for his kicks too. What kind of magecraft is she using?
