Title: Azure Striker Gunvolt 3
Post by: Aceearly1993 on April 06, 2022, 06:24:14 AM
I... Ugh. I lost all hopes after seeing the bloody price tag. $35 for the basic digital version? Are you kidding me?

...But they proclaimed that you'll have more than 150 abilities to collect and perform. Did you guys think that it's some sort of false advertising? Will it really have that much of abilities programmed in and offered to the player?

Artplay seems to be actively involved in helping Inti Creates for iX2 (according to the game's staff roll), so maybe someone under IGA would secretly give them such advise?
If the proclaimed more than 150 abilities really is a thing, then we could imagine it having something like in Castlevania AoS/DoS and Bloodstained. Then it would SORTA worth the $35 pricetag but only if there're more actual stages to support the content.

I don't know if it's just me, but the live-2d things never triggered the button inside me. In my view I don't think it's really necessary to add it (it's just so...tasteless, stale, abrupt), regardless that they want to add it since iX2. What's your opinion guys?

OK so the worst thing happened. Instead of the  shard-esque ability system as imagined, we get THIS. A gacha-wannabe... thing.
I can clearly see the opinion in reviews go diversed. Ugh.
What were they thinking????

How's everybody treating this gacha-wannabe system? I want to hear your opinions.

After checking the full playthroughs it seems that the overal quality was generally better than previous titles?
But still hold my interest until all DLCs are released. Maybe considering a purchase but only after Steam version released.
The $35 price tag seems to be a typo, phew. Although I'm not sure if there're cut contents that paid off the difference between $35 and $29.9.

If they have online vids then it should help put things into perspective for you. But it sounds like a tough break for the game right now.

Looks like there's a whole lot of dlc pools planned. I'm against these goddamn marketing strategy... Can't they just put everything inside a whole package, like good ol' times?
Anyways my long belief to this company is lost since today.
