B-b-b-ballz deepWOW. Just...WOW.
Okay where to begin. Batman is gonna be deep. Like deeeep with some of his tech. Those remote bats in combo just lead to a lot of unique stuff. His double jump isn't double tap up...its up then up forward or up backward and its sort of like a tiger knee. I played a couple of doublejump characters in MVC and the way Batman does his is actually SMOOTHER. It feels more natural and you can roll into it. Also his jumping sparkler projectile is great. Covers a huge area. I think its DF +M
The default layout on the game for me on stick is NOT good for stick play though and since I can't change layout in the demo I'm playing pad.
On stick your meter burn button is just out in no mans land in pinky territory and I'll need it way too much for it to be on end. Here is the default stick layout for me and what I'll change it to once its released.
L M THROW STANCE X Y LB LT
H G STAGE METER or B A RB RT
I will change it to
L M H THROW
GIMMICK METER STAGE (macro for special LT/RT)
Also the biggest surprise for me so far is Wonder Woman. Her Lasso Stance is awesome for combos. She can't AA dive punch into another divepunch normally but her meter burn is a CANCEL so she can AA divepunch into horizontal air divepunch for massive corner carry and her corner combos are terrific. I didn't care for her sword/shield stance at all...too slow and shield recovery is bad. Not very good for combos. Her Lasso BTW is great.
