Rising Thunder, brought to you by the Cannon brothers
« on: July 31, 2015, 11:35:02 am »
Anybody try this out? The cannon brothers (Guys behind evo) are devs, having created GGPO technology along with a single game in their past (Stonehearth). So now they're trying their hand at a fighting game.

The game is... interesting. Its like, babbys first fighting game. Well, maybe second, with Divekick being first.

You have 3 attack buttons (L, M, H), and then 3 special move buttons. Thats right, buttons. No motions, charging, anything. Just 3 buttons, each launches a special move. And then that special move goes on cooldown for a bit. Supers are done with 1 button as well, as are throws.

The fighters are giant robots, and one of the more interesting things is the ability to swap out your special moves. Right now each character just has 1 swappable move, but it lets your customize the characters in interesting ways. I was playing a grappler bot, and I had 2 choices for one slot: a magnetic pull that sucked people in, or a shoulder charge that closed distance.

Havent played much of it, but it is still a really early alpha. I feel like the control scheme might hold the game back, but we'll see.

You can sign up for the alpha at the website

Someone in the Korea group gave me a code. Once I get my laptop I'll be on this.

I got it to work. Played some of Edge. Lost 3 ranked matches lol. I kinda don't like using the keyboard, but maybe I can find a way to get a TE to work with it. I am so not used to cooldowns...I like spamming shit lol.

I had fought the grappler bot in a ranked matched. He had this bnb of a couple of lights into a kick which did wall bounce into a ermac type magnetic ground pound. Other than that, he would use the counter(?, he glowed blue and could absorb a hit) to bait me into coming at him.

I do like how the ranked matches are 2 out of 3. I suppose there's no "friends list" yet.

Yeah, you only have training and ranked match, no friends list or friends versus currently

Also, I play Talos exclusively, I don't think you can combo into that kick (outside of a jump in). You can do jabs into shoulder charge, and off the kick you can get some nice combos.

Also, those aren't counters, he just has armor. His F+Heavy has armor on it, and he can charge his 2 throws by holding them to suck you in and glow blue, which gives them some armor too.

I really like Talos, but I should learn to play a few other characters too

i'm almost sure he comboed into that kick...unless I wasn't blocking...Can he cancel the lights into a dash and then cancel into the kick or something?

So his two throws...is one of them an air throw? I ask because I found a counter to what he was doing and it pissed him off.  Everytime he'd charge it and glow blue, I ran and did the shoryuken move (which got absorbed), he'd whiff his throw, I'd land and full combo him. I'm wondering if he could have done something else to bait that though.

Yeah, if you are using kinetic advance, you can cancel moves into a dash, but you wouldnt really want to do it on jabs. And it wouldnt be fast enough to cancel into the heavy kick. You either werent blocking or you were mashing and the armor beat you out : P

And yes, one is an air throw, so in that case if he was charging the other throw and you did that, you'd have been scooped out of the air. Next time just throw him if possible, armor doesnt stop throws, but then you have to get close enough to do it lol

I'm having a lot more fun with this game than I expected, honestly. Talos & Dauntless are fun.

Talos can combo into his wallbounce kick. Close H (monkey clap) can cancel into any normal and that will combo, he can Kinetic Advance dash out of his SPD (and possibly his forward throw as well) and combo with the wallbounce kick. I really like his resets. Between the amount of time they take and Kinetic Advance reducing your cooldowns you can threaten SPD as they air reset.

Yeah I know you can throw and then cancel into kick, I didnt know you could do HP into the wall bounce kick, I always do the back hp double clap into shoulder charge, I'll have to try that

Talos has a ton of combo potential for a grappler, my initial impressions are he's very good once he gets in and he has at least two ways to make you stop poking him at mid range. My brain still hasn't fully comprehended the uses of Kinetic Advance yet, but most of the rest of the cast seems less fun.

Its a psuedo FADC to make unsafe things safe, or a way to to create mixups, to just extend a combo for more damage. I actually like defense on talos, people with crazy long strings get shut down

I mean I know what it's used for and what it does, but the uses of it on every move haven't clicked in my brain yet. I just need to play more of it. I prefer Advance on Talos for silly aerial resets.

I think so? Dunno.

What they need are stuff like, light + med = throw, so I dont have to move my hand so far to throw : (

Ironically, its harder to throw using the far right button. My hand rests on the left 3 for like 10 years, Im not changing that! lol

Talos has a new option for his grab, instead of being chargable it comes out instantly and has armor. I like it a lot, actually. Feels better. If you fully charge the first option now, you can combo off the bounce, but Ive never seen Talos actually charge his grabs to use it

He's salty cause he played me and the following happened.

He, as Vlad, retreated to near fullscreen thinking "I wanna missile him and he can't stop me"
I, as Dauntless, ran up and supered right through it.

Alt-F4'd before the 2nd hit of super. Impressive.
