I believe it still reads Chiester becuause it is pronounced Shii-esta and Shii meant love or something in Japanese so it was a pun on love and the word winchester.

?

"Shii" means love? Aren't the (most common) words for love "ai", "koi" and "suki"? "Shii" by itself, either as hiragana or katakana doesn't mean anything relevant, but 死 (shi) means death, however since they aren't written the same then it doesn't have any meaning. Yes, people still act superstitious about it. 四 (also "Shi") means four but is pronounced the same way as 死 (death) so some buildings in Japan don't have a fourth floor, like some in the west don't have a 13th floor.

Tthis is something people often get wrong. Even if the word means something, if it isn't written in the same way then it's just coincidence. Like when some Higurashi fans say that

Spoiler for Minor spoilers to Higurashi:

TBA. We're testing the default font, and once that's all working good, we'll tweak it. I hope I can find a way to adjust it so it has fixed width, because I kind of like it.

At the moment, 1.0. I haven't even seen 1.10 yet. :P Did she get a story mode?

No, she was only available for Versus play. You couldn't use her or fight against her in Arcade at all.

The only translatable thing for Jessica would be her moveset image (the one that appears when you select the corresponding button on menu)

Still, version 1.10, as the "final" version of vanilla Ougon, has a lot of bug fixes.

That's unfortunate that she has no story, I actually would be fine moving up to 1.1 for that. As it is, we'll do the script and see if we can tweak it for 1.1(shouldn't be hard at all).

It would be great, cause on the release version there were alot of stuff that was severely broken, not story wise but gameplay wise.

I would not want to go back to 1.0.0 and tear my eyes out with Battler's slide kick not connecting to anything.

God damn, why you do this to me Battler.

All this talk of Vanilla Ougon made me want to try out my old favourite team, so here's a video for everyone!



I think I've been playing Lucifer too much...

I'm patiently waiting for a victory against Black Battler using Bern and Lambda.

If I can ask, what's so hard about it? I've noticed people saying it's fairly difficult, but I don't quite grasp why.

It's only because of his abbilities and he starts the game already at 5SP instead of zero. In the game you have two abilities depending on which characters you chose and you can't have them on everytime. He has EIGHT, activated FULL TIME and his own (which thankfully he only has when tagging and during meta). His full-time abilities are:

ArmorBoost (defense x2)
Patience (gains SP while guarding)
InfinitySP (use one special skill without wasting SP)
Berserk (increased attack)
CounterBoost (counters become stronger)
BreakBoost (opponent's break gauge fills faster)
Resurrection (recovers HP)
AutoGuard (automatically guards whenever possible)

Thanks to AutoGuard he has automatic defense whenever possible (hence most people starting combos by interrupting him during his attacks), but thanks to ArmorBoost whatever damage you do to him will be halved. And thanks to Patience, whenever you hit him and he defends via AutoGuard, he will gain SP. Resurrection makes it so that he recovers health permanently during the course of the match (meaning you have to stay on offensive, because otherwise he'll recover from whatever little damage you did to him) InfinitySP lets him do specials without wasting SP (except for metaworld activating and his SP2, which is a special case). Berserk increases his attack and CounterBoost increases the power of his counters. And finally, BreakBoost makes your Guard Bar fill faster, meaning he'll break your guard and leave you vulnerable.

And also his own ability: Massacre, which recovers health proportionally to how much damage he dishes, and it is ability-unrelated, but his grab has a 100% chance of stunning you afterwards.

To sum it all: bitch is broken like hell. But only because of his abilities. Normal Black Battler and Boss Black Battler have the same AI in Hard Mode, so if you fight agaisnt normalCPU!B.Battler in Hard, you'll see that he's only god-like thanks to the abilities.

His grab does 1000 damage and, if he wanted to, could chain stun you with his grab.

Actually, he technically can't. If he grabs you twice in a row, your character becomes immune to stun for pretty much the rest of the round lol.

Who do you all think is the worst character in the game, and why? I've heard it's either Jessica or Rosa. I want to hear everyone's opinions.

To me, it seems to be Erika. She doesn't really have any good moves from what I've seen. Which is a shame since I would really like to main her.

It's hard to say because you don't play as a single character, normally the tag engine can fix a lot of characters, rosa is pretty weak but so is siesta I have found both to be even weaker than jessica as she is very good when you get inside.

I thought Jessica and Rosa were considered the weakest. Personally, I think Rosa's -okay-, but really suffers without SP. Jessica is pretty good if you can get in close enough, but, well...

Also, lolGeorge.

I've only played vanilla(and I'm by no means any good), but I don't really like how Beatrice plays much. Battler's my favorite, followed by Ronove and Lucifer.

I main Erika, and I'll tell you right away, there's no way a character with a double jump, sword normals and such a fast 2b and overhead is going to be bad lol.

Personally, I think the worst character is Ange. Everything she does, another character can do better. And her normals are so bad.
